    I thought the food was great, but the manager seemed kind of distracted--we were ignored when we first walked in. The waitress was nice but inexperienced, and food took a long time--we recirved appetizers after the entrees. But the worst part was the obnoxious, loud complaints made by other customers sitting near us. They acted very entitled and unbelievably rude to everyone. Got the impression that this sort of clientele is common there. I never write reviews, but this was so bad I felt compelled to.

    Was thrilled to go here for the first time, food was very good, hospitality gets a zero. These people are greedy arrogant workers who genuinely do not give a darn about customers returning. The hostess/waitress needs to go take a class in hospitality. Not sure I would return, nor would my other 3 guests.

    I recently went to Mercado's this was definitely a nice find. My husband and I went to the bar and was greeted by a lovely bartender named Terry friendly and outgoing. They have quite a selecion of Tequila, we ordered some specialtity drinks and they were superb. We ordered the tortilla soup and the ceviche as our appetizers very nice. I order Chile Relleno veggie mushroom & spinach excellent. My husband ordered Chicken Mole Poblano he loved it and I had a taste wonderful flavors. The atmoshphere was with out a doubt relaxing and the music that was playing was selected with good taste no punn intended. I would recommend this place to anyone. I will be back with my girlfriends.

    As bad as many restaurants are in the Hamptons, this was the worst experience I have ever had. We sat down were immediately taken care of. Drinks, apps and diner all ordered. Drinks came, but 45 minutes later no appetizers and he waitress kept saying they wold be right out. Finally confronted the two owners (the woman was slightly more polite), but the man was obnoxious. He informed us that they were serving a party of 46 in the other room and the kitchen was focused on them. This was never mentioned when we sat down or when we ordered. Got tired of waiting and asked for the check. We were charged for the drinks and the owners (and especially the man) were unapologetic. Never go to this restaurant - nothing is worth that service!

    Food was good, but the place was poorly managed. It took about 30 minutes to receive our drinks at our table of 4, and there were only about 4 other filled tables in the restaurant. The waitress was lovely and was attentive, but a manager or owner appeared to be harassing her (unacceptable) and in full view of the customers. It made the experience extremely uncomfortable. We will not return.

    We "tried" to eat at the bar. Starters were corn and guacamole. 45 minutes in we got the corn. No napkins, no silverware. No guacamole. Our drinks were done, no more to be had. We solicited the hostess for assistance. She went off to the kitchen to get our guacamole. She never returned. After being there for 1 1/2 hours, our entrees were brought out by kitchen staff. Guacamole? Silverware? Nada. We walked out. No owner or management in sight. Everyone was complaining. It was just stupid.

    We always have a great time at Mercado. The dishes are inventive, full of flavor and nicely presented. and the drinks are great The staff is engaging and attentive. There are very few Mexican restaurants in NYC with food as creative and refined as at Mercado. We have been a few times for the $12 all you can drink brunch and have never been disappointed. Not sure why they are not always full

    Sometimes in the Hamptons you are tired of steaks and mushroom names you don't recognize. Nachos were good, although could have been hotter. Yummy shrimp taco, nice looking colorful salad. A little too much salt on the drinks, but got a straw, problem solved. Waitresses were very attentive. Only open for a little while in the place of the old Almond. And you know where that went!

    This restaurant has a casual yet festive atmosphere with great music. The menu is extensive, the prices are reasonable and the food is delicious. The drink offering is very varied with an extensive tequila and beer menu. My dishes, the sushi tacos, mahi and warm berry salsa for dessert were each mouthwatering in their own ways. My companion likes more spice and got what he wanted. He loved his squash blossom quesadilla, surf & turf (carne asada with jalapeno mashed potatoes and fiery shrimp). He ended with a creamy tres leche cake that was sublime. The place wasn't crowded (it was a Monday night) so service was quick. The blackboard board specials listed saturday night karaoke and an all u-can-eat brunch that we will definitely return for.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    having spent a few years living in Mexico City, I always crave really good Mexican Food, Which is not always easy to find. I am not talking about fajitas, nachos and burritos but real mexican dishes like Tacos al Pastor, queso fundido, chiles relleno and a good carne asada. although we were only two and and could taste everything, the food was amazing and all the dishes we had great home made sauces and were quite tasty, i will try to come with a few more people to try a few other dishes. the only issue i could find is that the staffed seemed overworked and it took a while to get our food. The owner apoligized did apoligize though saying it was the first busy weekend of the summer and they still were not ready to handle such a crowd.

    The service was so bad that when we complained to the owner he just strugged his shoulders, no apology!

He didn't care that we were unhappy and did nothing to fix it DO NOT GO!

    With high hopes my family and I set off for Mercado. A change in name, perhaps service and a renewed sense of ownership by the owner would save this place. Thumbs down. The owner is just as ineffectual as he has always been. Staff is poorly trained and not-customer centric. We waited 45 minutes for our meal. The waitress blamed it on a large table but the large table was seated a good 20 minutes after us. The hostess' stare into space and when we shared with the waitress that we were curious when we might see some food, she went over to the hostess who then gave me a nasty look. Huh? The menu hasn't change and while the foot is good the overall impression is that I am finished with Agave, Mercado, ?
