A word from Mercadito Grove
Expertly blending traditional Mexico with creative interpretations of local and seasonal ingredients is the inspiration behind Mercadito restaurants. Spanish for “little market”, Mercadito is modeled after the markets chef Patricio Sandoval shopped at while growing up in his native Mexico. His muse is the cuisine of the southern region but when mixed with his own style he creates authentic dishes with an added flair.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Came here with 2 friends, had a reservation and were told we had to wait, with no where to wait in this tiny restaurant. We stood by the door squished with others and felt so bad but were forced to hover over a table next to us. There were 3 open and set tables with no one sitting, yet they kept lots of people waiting. They need a lesson on table turn around and effective planning especially when people have reservations. However they did give us a free round of Margaritas which was very nice and once we finally sat down the food was sooooo yummy ! And our waitress was wonderful, very attentive and sweet. I LOVE the guacamole and the tacos and plantains but I'll stick to the east village location on a Saturday as there is more room."

  • "This cozy little place was awesome! The tacos are delicious and I love that you an order them wrapped in tortillas or lettuce. There are many types to choose from. We ordered a few difference dishes and sides... all wonderful and fresh. The staff was very hospitable. We will definitely be back!"

  • "We made a reservation and we running 5-10 mins late. Upon realizing that we wouldn't make our time we immediately called the restaurant. They could not have been more rude on the phone. Instead of thanking us for the call they basically said be here in 10 or we're giving your table away. As we walked in the first thing the host said to us was we need your table back by 845. Despite trying to order three courses, we felt rushed the entire time at dinner as if they wanted us to just get out. The waitress was less than accommodating and the entire experience just sucked. The food was tasty but the tight quarters, bad ambiance, flat soda and downright rude staff did not make up for it. We have unlimited choices in New York and will not be back."

  • "Much smaller and tighter inside than I expected. But, the food was very good, and the service good. Nice neighborhood hangout. And, not too loud either."

  • "Had a reservation for 9:15 (Which they called to confirm earlier) Arrived promptly and there was no table and no table available in the fore-seeable future. The Host shrugged and had no solution. Why bother making a reservation. I would not try this place EVer again!"

  • "Very good, super fresh Mexican food. Lots of non meat options too, 2 kinds of fish tacos, as well as calimari, mushroom, and shrimp tacos. Great guacamole and margaritas, everything you want from Mexican. Small space with an open kitchen."

  • "The Mercadito location on Grove street is extremely small. Although we made reservations, we had to wait about half an hour for a table. They were kind enough to give us complimentary margaritas and desserts for waiting and the food was pretty good! They have a great happy hour and great taco deals on Mondays and Tuesdays so those would probably be the best days to dine here and may not be so crowded."

  • "Only problem was the server kept walking over every few minutes to ask if we wanted to order something else while still eating. I understand if our table was empty but it wasn't and there were plenty other tables to annoy. It turned me off of wanting to order."

  • "I think this place is closing. There is a "for rent" sign outside of the restaurant, and given that there was no heat on the in place (on a FREEZING cold day) I'm surmising that they no longer have heat. The food was pretty good, but not worth sitting in an ice cold restaurant on a frigid day."

  • "Food was great...margaritas great...but space is VERY tiny. My husband and I were wedged in between two tables so if you're looking for a quiet, private dinner this is not the place for you. We were seated right away because we had a reservation but if we had to wait there was no bar to wait at...people were huddled at the front door or outside. The food is great but you should know what you're getting into."

  • "The quality of the food was poor given the price of the entrees. Some dishes were notably overcooked. The seating was too cramped in the back right corner. On the plus side the cocktails were quite good, but overall an unsatisfying dining experience."

  • "Chose this restaurant after finding it on yelp. Did not know anything about it. However, when we got there we learned that Mondays was all you can eat Tacos. I totally recommend it! All the tacos were amazing and the service was impeccable. All for a great budget as well. Great find in an neighborhood that is surrounded by mostly expensive restaurants."
