Diner Reviews
  • "Food such as fusilli with Prawns was a bit bland, lamb done to perfection and Brussel sprouts were grilled with balsamic vinegar had some sprouts appearing if they were burned. Taste was good. For $150 with tip was in our opinion, not worth it. Perhaps we need to figure out how to order at this restaurant. Last visit with a group had tons of food with the pasta dishes served together instead if separately."

  • "The food is absolutely phenomenal, but the service tends to be standard considering you're paying over $100 for two people. On multiple occasions, I have had a hard time getting a hold of my server either for an issue with what was ordered, needing drink refills after having an empty water glass the majority or the meal, or even waiting for the bill and food to be packed after we were clearly done. Besides that, the food is fresh with lots of flavour!"

  • "All the food menu are very variable and a good portions. The cheese cake are amazing. The waitress was so friendly that help you to feel like in home. I strongly recommend this place."

  • "We went to Mercatos for a special evening. The food was good but was too salty. I was up several times at night trying to quench my thirst. Luckily, I don't have high blood pressure! The server was excellent. The wine selection very good. My biggest complaint is the noise level. The music was so loud, it was had to hear each other speak. As the kitchen is open to the view of the public, I imagine that the music drowns the noise of the kitchen. This noise is not limited to Mercatos restaurants only. It seems most restaurants feel the need to drown out conversations, I wonder why this is?"

  • "The atmosphere is not quite as interesting as downtown location but still excellent. This location attracts more families with small children. It isn't quite as nice when you are sitting next to families with very young children as they tend to cry or scream some and it takes away from your dining experience. All in all most of the time it is a very enjoyable place to go for dinner. The food is excellent."

  • "We visited for the first time with a group of 6. The meal was delicious and we really enjoyed the "Family Style" dining experience. It allowed us to sample various foods and take appropriate portions based on our tastes. Excellent service!"

    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Yes the location is nice, good for westerners, good service and the food does taste good, but why does the bill always have to be so expensive. Most of the dishes we had were based on cheap ingredients such as arborio rice and pasta. The value just isn't there and I won't be coming back."

  • "We went for a weekend lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Fantastic food, very generous quantities. We shared the mussels & clam appetizer and the rigatoni, and it would have easily served 3 adults. The pizza bar on the other side of the bar looks fun, so we're trying that next time!"

  • "Good food, helpful and friendly wait staff. Food was prepared just as explained and portions were more than enough. Everything fresh. Quiet on a Sunday evening but that was fine, a little different from the 4th street location. Recommend for sure"

  • "We came here as a large group for lunch before Christmas and I tried multiple dishes, some were excellent, some good. This was lunch with a friend, and my food was really unimpressive, dry and flavourless. We had prosecco, water and a cappucinno which were all fine. But for the premium prices I expected more. Our server was attentive."

  • "Mercato West proved to be a very pleasant experience. The ambiance and decor were not what I expected but the environment proved to be welcoming and comfortable, providing a pleasurable dining experience. We enjoyed the variety found on the menu and the items we ordered were for the most part very good. We will definitely return."

  • "I have been to the Mercato Mission location a few times and finally tried out the West location for my birthday. I like this location much better because there is space. Mission is cramped (smaller building). There is lots of space at the West location and while waiting you can check out the market (before 7pm). The food was good, very flavourful and the portions were enough for our 5 person group, we ordered five items (2 pastas, 2 meats and one vegetable). Anything less would not have been enough. You have to try the steak! Would recommend and would return!"

  • "This restaurant is perfect for a casual evening out. The atmosphere is very relaxed yet the food is sophisticated. Wonderful to have downtown quality food and atmosphere in an outlying neighbourhood."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Excellent food and Service, they have made recent changes to warm up the ambience , but still not up to the standards to the Downtown location."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "The quality of the food is declining and god help you if you complain or do not follow their recommendations for how you should be served, or their progression for dinner. Staff will get quite indignant. Liked this establishment once but find them arrogant now and have eaten all the over salted, over cooked meals I plan to there. Unfortunate, they started out as a favorite."

  • "All the food is family size with generous portions. Quality was outstanding. Our waitress was so nice and knowledgable.we will definitely be going again!"

  • "I love the tamgliano pasta and bisteka. I love the tiramisu. I miss the asparagus wrapped. The hostesses were very nice in moving us when I wasn't as happy where we were sitting this time."

  • "We've been to this restaurant a number of times. The pasta's are always unbelievably fresh; the best we've come across in a long while."

  • "Im a Mercato West regular. The food is always 10/10, but unfortunately on my last visit, I I had a bad experience due to a server. I wasn't too bothered by the fact that the server basically ignored us and only tended to us when he had to, but I was bothered by the fact that after he learned that I only tipped him 18% (because of the mediocre service) he threw my receipt at me and stormed away. I then watched him bash our table to his fellow servers. This review is NOT to deter you from going, the food is fabulous. This review is to warn you that if you get server ID 1591, be prepared to tip 25-30% for bad service..."

  • "This is the second time we attended Mercato in Aspen and love everything about the place. This time we celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary there and couldn't have chosen a better place for that. It's a classy, yet "feel comfortable,easy" atmosphere. The service was great and the food (sharing with two others) was prepared to perfection. Would recommend this restaurant for any occasion , from family get-togethers to special occasions or a leisurely meal with a friend. Go there - you will love it. Guaranteed!!"

  • "I love the Mission location but were meeting friends who live in the West. The atmosphere is industrial, cold. The food was OK, not up to the usual standards. Would not go back."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "Upon arriving the atmosphere was not what we expected. We had a party of 6 with various tastes, and were not sure the "share menu" would work. Our waiter Maurice was very good - he gave useful advice, made some suggestions and explained the menu very well. The food all came out at a good pace. All the food was very good, very tasty - we ordered 3 starters, 2 pastas, 2 meats and 1 vegi - there was lots for everyone - in fact we brought some home! The bill was expensive, but the food and service were both very good. Overall an enjoyable evening."

  • "Couldn't have asked for a better evening- the service was excellent, the wine great and the food so delicious. For the brussel sprout lover or not-- this dish was fabulous- roasted i think with nuts-- absolutely tasty! Definitely recommend this restaurant!"

  • "We are Mercato Frequent Flyers. While the old standards are there they do small tweaks to keep the flavours and tastes fresh. We hadn't had the feel chop in a year and it' now comes topped with a fungi, Marsala, marscapone and crisp shallots. It doesn't over power the basic veal flavour but is just a nice added touch. Franca, Peter and the entire staff make you feel that you are part of an extended Italian family."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Everyone was very friendly and helpful at this restaurant. Near the end of our dinner, the service declined and it took awhile for the waitress to check back in on us. She also forgot to enter one of our side dish orders. It was a little disappointing, but the food was delicious and the orders were good sized portions."
    Dined on 12/8/2013
  • "First the good...most of the food we had was very good to excellent. We had the florentine steak and it was delicious. The rigatoni pasta was amazing. Our service was top notch from a very professional server. Portions are generous so it's easy to over-order. After the antipasta and pasta dishes, one main course, the florentine steak with veg was plenty for 4 adults. Now the bad...the seafood linguine left a lot to be desired and needed serious help in the flavouring department. The noise level was really on the annoying side. A big concrete space reflects noise from everywhere, other tables, the large central kitchen and then they decided to play music at quite loud levels even after asking them to lower volume."

  • "Had a very enjoyable meal at Mercato West on 9 December. Friendly environment and great food designed to share. Our server explained all the dishes to us and really knew what she was talking about. We were greeted at the door with a friendly face and thanked on the way out. This is the way life should always be. Fine Italian food. Great prosciutto, bruschetta, fusilli with shrimp, gnocchi, ribs and tuna. Great restauran for trying hard to find Italian wines. Enjoyed the macchiato at the end too. We will be back."

  • "If you go to this restaurant as a couple, you get squished along one side next to the kitchen and other couples. Not the most romantic or the most comfortable (hard wooden chairs). However, if you don't plan to stay long or are having a more casual dinner, watching the kitchen at work is probably fine. Tasty food but a bit overpriced for what you get. I wouldn't say that I was impressed enough to want to go back for more."

  • "If you are a party of 3 or less you will be seated at the bar, not private or intimate. Hard to have a conversation,feels like your dining with strangers. They serve their menu family style for sharing, hard to do side by side at the bar."

  • "Always try the pasta special for the evening. You will never go wrong . The servers went out of their way to make sure the evening was classy, energetic and memorable."
