Diner Reviews
  • "We sat outside in the very spacious outdoor seating area. Great spot for al fresco dining. Tuna crudo was delicious, as was our special entrée. I've been there twice, and will be back again. Slightly on the pricier side, though."

  • "I've been here a few times now, great spot for a nice dinner or a quick brunch. Love the acoustic music during brunch. Friendly service and beautiful patio."

  • "Stopped for dinner Friday 5:30 pm. Places our order. Drinks (Mojito- probably the worst ever my wife had and Bloody Mary -just OK) arrived 1/2 hour later. The appetizer -mussels was just OK, the grilled ceasar salad-terrible, mushroom soup looks like straight from the can!. My wife's salmon was super sweet to the point that she sent it back, my trout was so-so. Very disappointed with both food and service..."

  • "My wife and I came here for my birthday celebration. Highlights include the clam chowder and the chicken. Oh and I can't forget the pistachio chocolate sundae the server brought us! Will be back soon."

  • "Second time coming in for dinner. My husband and I loved the first experience so much, we decided to stop by for a quick dinner before a show. Ceviche and tuna tataki club are a must!"

  • "Food was great and the outdoor seating was amazing as well. Our server had a huge beard and was awesome...funny, helpful and fast."

  • "The citrus ceviche was outstanding! My friend ordered the Salmon which knocked my Red Snapper out of the water. I would order Salmon my next visit. The ginger smash was very refreshing and exactly what I was in the mood for on a summer eve."

  • "One of the best patios in the Gold Coast. Service was great as well."

  • "We love the original Mercadito and figured this place would be just as good. It was! Oysters were fresh and fabulous, Salmon and fish tacos were excellent--and the non fish lover in our group ordered the chicken, which was also fabulous. Highly recommend!"

  • "THIS WAS MY SECOND LUNCH AT THE RESTAURANT. THE FIRST TIME THE FLUKE SANDWICH WAS DELICIOUS. THE SECOND TIME WAS NOT AS GOOD. - DEFINITELY LESS FISH ON THE SANDWICH. THE SERVICE WAS ALSO WAS LESS SATISFACTORY. THE RESTAURANT WAS ALMOST EMPTY AT 12:3O AND THE BUSTLING OUTDOOR BUSINESS WAS GONE."

  • "The seafood format is a great change from their prior bistro life. They just really falter in the execution which is such a shame. Great food is tarnished when it comes out cold or not at all. Was a birthday celebration & most of parts of the meal get messed up - from the appetizers not showing up at all to some of the meals & sides coming out cold. The waiter was GREAT but he was so overstretched, that must have been a stressful night. Same for bar area. We gave up our dinner table even though it was comfortable outside because we know the wait for drinks would be unbearable, but the bartender was just as harried. To provide a comfortable experience, restaurants really need to have the right number of staff or allocate them better."

  • "There was barely anyone in the restaurant when we were there which was at 8pm on a Friday night. The food was ok and the service was just eh. I am not dying to go back but it wasn't terrible."

  • "I had been to Mercadito before and when they saw they were opening a seafood restaurant I decided to give it a shot for my birthday. We sat outside and had a great meal. The oysters were fresh, the fish tacos amazing, and the seared tuna cooked perfectly. The waiter was friendly. I would go back for lunch to check out some more things on their menu."

  • "We ate here a few weeks after the restaurant changed its concept to seafood from the former brasserie. Fish was well-prepared. Both Halibut and Ahi Tuna were very good. Service was a bit spotty."

  • "I like this place a lot. The food was very good, I had the salmon and my boyfriend has the halibut which was amazing. We also had the calamari appetizer and a creme brulé dessert. The easier was very nice and attentive. The only problem was that the main curse took to long to be served. Our waiter was aware of it and he redeem himself by bringing dessert for free. Great atmosphere and location. I would definitely go back there."

  • "Good neighborhood place and upgrade for Talbott Hotel where it replaced Buce. Menu somewhat typical of many new Chicago restaurants with a few unique touched (pull-apart bread is recommended). Not as exciting as this venture's other recently opened Barcito and Tavernita, but a safe bet when you can't find a reservation at some of the nearby Rush Street and Streetervile eateries"
