A word from Mercer Kitchen
Located at the Mercer Hotel, Mercer Kitchen brings a chic, sophisticated vibe to the heart of SoHo. When Mercer Kitchen opened in 1998, it immediately became a destination for New Yorkers, celebrities, and tourists. Situated in the basement of a historic building constructed in the 1800s, the… restaurant was designed by Christian Liaigre as a combination of industrial and classic modernism. Chef Jean-Georges’ American menu features market-driven, seasonal ingredients prepared in a simple yet elegant style, with favorites like the Tuna Spring Roll, Steamed Shrimp Salad, wood-fired pizzas, and classic Warm Valrhona Chocolate Cake. There is an open kitchen, where guests can sit back and watch the show.Continued
Diner Reviews
  • "Great choices for lunch. I had the Salmon which was delicious, very tender and the presentation for all the dishes was great. Waiter wasn't very knowledgable of the food on the menu was gluten free; had to ask if they could make the burger or turkey burger without the bun for one of the members of my group. Price points on the dishes were normal for Soho."

  • "We were visiting New York and needed a good food place to visit with young adult children. It was a fantastic dining experience. Noise level was acceptable as we sat upstairs - it may have been a little noisy, if we had been seated downstairs."

  • "This is a comeback dinner. I like the food. It's delicious. I ordered baked salmon with kale. It's so juicy. My friend had lobster. Both of us shared and loved it. It's awesome."

  • "Went back to Mercer Kitchen for restaurant week. Food was good, service wonderful, atmosphere always a nice scene. Could have used a little more air conditioner in the summer. Pizza app was a pleasant surprise with a little heat in the salami! The corn hash with the chicken was a nice compliment to the meal. Although the molten chocolate cake is on other menus, this one was pure heaven!"

  • "A wonderful meal...I have never been disappointed in any of his restaurants and I would recommend this one highly. I went for restaurant week and I had the chicken which I normally do not like white meat but this breast was so moist and delicious along with the corn and chocolate cake for dessert. I was full after the pizza appetizer! A must go to!"

  • "Last night was my first time dinning at one of my new NYC favorites. When I arrived at 9pm for my reservation the place was jumping and in full affect. My friend and I started off with a couple drinks at the bar. We were a little undecided what to order and the bartender Gibran was very helpful and suggested one of their signature drinks. The Cucumber Martini. Be careful though these are just (too good)!! After finally being sat, we were given a table in the middle of the dinning room. The energy was great along with a good vibe. My server Allison was wonderful and suggestive. We had a couple questions about wine and the mgr Brian was very helpful as well and he also stopped to check on us several times. Thanks for the great time MK!!"

  • "I went there for the restaurant week at lunch, the menu was clearly scaled down to fit within the $25 budget. Whereas other places provide the same level of quality during restaurant week I felt Mercer Kitchen missed the mark. Courses were bland except maybe the dessert. Service was merely ok and very slooow although I was at the sitting at the bar. Not sure I'll come back for the regular menu."

  • "We had 3 persons and ordered 2 different lunch set and extra entree ( slow cook salmon, burger, and chicken ). Food was really fine, esp the salmon, just cooked it right, wl sure to stop by if visit SOHO again. Just one thing, waitress asked too many times "how's the food?" "is everything all right?"...just felt a bit disturbed."

  • "We had an excellent meal. Our waiter was fabulous and very knowledgable. The starters were the highlights of the meal but everything was delicious. Buzzy atmosphere which is nice. Note: they automatically added 20% gratuity on to our bill so watch out for that when you pay."

  • "Not the best of Jean Georges places…doubt I would return. Food is decent but not up to par to his other places."

  • "good restaurant- but nothing special- a typical large, SOHO restaurant. Nothing that distiguished itself from other similar restaurants."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The food was amazing!! The only downside of the experience was the waiter forgot that we wanted to take home our leftovers and by the time we paid the bill we never got our take out bag. It was too late so we couldn't wait around to fix the problem."

  • "I had been to the Mercer Kitchen a few years ago and recall a much better experience. This recent visit was not the same experience. I ordered the hake. While beautifully presented, it lacked flavor. A pinch of salt would have gone a long way. French fries and baked chopped potatoes that could have been Ore Ida as side dishes? As for service, one of my guests ordered a "white zinfandel". A red zinfandel was served. When we asked the waiter his reply was "We only have a red zinfandel." Not sure why he took the liberties to decide we instead wanted a red. Main courses arrived late. Waiter's reply "It was quiet all evening and then we had a rush of guests to manage." Atmosphere was energetic. Nothing to write home about."

  • "Not a great experience. Food was average and service was a disaster. Beautiful space but would never think about returning."

  • "Was immediately impressed with thealmost speak easy vibe of the dinning room down stairs at the Mercer Kitchen. Warm and invitiing lounges run throughout the restaurant. Low archways and dim lighting making for an intimate and mysterious feel. Variety of meal options for foodies all the way through to your more traditional menu items to please any one and everyone and without the pang of guilt when you see the bill at the end of the night. Overall a great experience and a fun night."

  • "So went to Mercer Kitchen and food, atmosphere was great but have to say all of the people working there were fantastic but our server definitely had an "food snob" attitude…other than that, great!!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "great place - great menu! what's with the servers grabbing your plates before you are done eating? rude - rude! constant reminders to up-sell, order faster, check before it was asked for we were not lingering or loitering!"

  • "Accommodating great place. Very good food. Can't wait to come again."

  • "Wait staff is arrogant and clearly wants to be somewhere else other than waiting on you. I had a corked bottle of wine and the waiter arrogantly told me I was wrong it's fine he tried it. We did not drink it. When the sommelier came by to open our red that we ordered I said I did not realize Mercer had a sommelier. I asked him if he would test the white that we thought was corked and he was visibly taken a back and said indeed it was and immediately had it removed from table and bill. The waiter later came by and said to be "you were right" like wow you do know something. Totally arrogant staff we had to wait 30 minutes past our reaervation and honestly I have had better food it's just not that good."

  • "Mercer Kitchen was recommended by a friend that lives in the city and I am so glad went there. The food was excellent...my NY Strip waste best I have ever had. My husband raved about his pork chop for days and said it was easily the best he ever had. Overall, a great experience and we will definitely go back!"

  • "Mercer Kitchen is always a good bet for weekend brunch/lunch. Try the Roasted Chicken"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Very attentive, but not intrusive, wait staff. Good selection of food. Great bread. Pancakes were amazing! ordered a plate for the table(6) as wait staff suggested. We ordered a variety of entrees: omelet (that came with fresh green salad!), cheeseburger with fries, pizza, eggs benedict. All excellent. Pasta might have been a little salty) Fruit side was very fresh and tasty. Provided a nice break to shopping in Soho. Busy, but quiet enough we could hear each other. Only mild concern is that the downstairs area did not seem to have good a/c and was warm-but others in our party did not notice as much as me. Would definitely eat here again."

  • "The Mercer kitchen was a blast. I came with a group of friends for a birthday dinner and they really made it special. They got is seated right away and our server Vince was excellent. We loved the soft shell crab and the chorizo pizza- yum! I will absolutely return, keep doing what you're doing!"

  • "Always enjoyable. Our waiter was helpful and offered good suggestions when we found out the salmon we like was sold out. But the sea bass replacement was excellent. Comfortable lunch experience."

  • "We had heard that Mercer Kitchen was great. We came there and they told us that we have to wait for 5 min they were just putting our table up, but we waited for 35 min and they didnt even appologize. I was expecting better food, at least what I got, my boyfriends meal was ok."

  • "The veal was not good, we were two who ordered the same dish and both of us had to return it. In addition we got a poor table in a corner, despite reservations."

  • "Looking for an upscale hip spot to entertain a client and be able to have a conversation without shouting, or feeling cramped? Mercer Kitchen delivers- food is delicious and menu varied enough to satisfy all tastes."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "The wait staff are honest about their preference for one dish over another when asked for suggestions. The food is great, and they have very good customer service. Our server forgot to bring out our oysters before our entree, and we expressed that they are not as good after food - and we didn't want our entrees to get cold. After being very apologetic, the manager came out with a dozen oysters - which were on the house. Great experience, even with the slip from the server."

  • "Mercer kitchen was really great, and a nice hidden gem in the heart of Soho. My wife and I were seated right away and started with some champagne to celebrate our stay-cation for July 4th holiday. We had some of the best salmon and puffed rice treats for our appetizer! The in-house Burrata with home-made cherry jam might have stole the show. The service was amazing too! Our server was very attentive and the manager Ryan visited and was so kind as well. We will definitely be back to Mercer Kitchen!"

  • "Fashionable restaurant to dine in Soho. Refined and very fresh dishes. Service personnel a little too diligent, maybe seeing the opportunity to fill in the table once again before the working day ends?"
