New hot spot in Uptown
My husband and I love this new spot in town. This restaurant is straight out of Paris.
Great ambience, great wine and food. Very friendly and professional

Was a great dining experience, especially for such a new restaurant. We stuck with standard French bistro fare for our first time around (Fois gras terrine, green salad, steak frites, and salmon in pastry) and were beyond pleased. Definitely the best of those items we've come across in Dallas, coming from former Parisian residents. Also worth noting - the espresso was very well made. Looking forward to trying the rest of the menu soon!

No kinks in the execution
No kinks in the execution at this new spot. All dishes were spot-on, and smaller portion sizes didn't leave us overly stuffed. Superb service from Marcos.

Mercat...a nice surprise
his is a wonderful little restaurant! It is new, so we got right in...I hope it will become a hard reservation to get! The food is excellent and the service as well...wines, great! If you love Paris bistros, you will love this spot. I cant wait for the weather to cool off so I can go and sit on the patio!

Tremendous new place - new fav spot
After going to Paris last year, Dallas' "french" scene has left a little to be desired. Aside from my server's lack of French dialogue, the whole experience made me feel as if I was whisked back to St. Germain. Tremendous food, great prices - will definitely be back often!

I've been here twice now and the food coupled with the atmosphere makes you feel like you've stepped out of Dallas for a few hours. Very quaint and perfectly nestled beside St. Anne's, Mercat has gotten it right in all the right ways.

Great French Bistro
I am thrilled about the addition of Mercat to the Dallas dining scene. While Mercat is new and has some kinks to iron out, they clearly take customer service and delicious food very seriously. We enjoyed the foie gras terrine, the braised mushrooms and the very generous veal sweetbreads with frisee salad. We can't wait to go back for more!

Ambience of a French bistro,
Ambience of a French bistro, some unique items like quail and sweetbreads, which both were very good. Only complaint is that salads were on the small side and wine list was very limited and very mediocre.

A little pricey, but a good
A little pricey, but a good addition to the neighborhood. Friendly staff and a competent (if not inspired) kitchen. A perfectly decent place to go if you live in the Ritz-Victory-Harwood area, are tired of cooking, and want a glass of wine and bistro fare. Nice patio for when it's not too hot or cold.

We loved our meals and the ambience. Hope it doesn't get too loud for me when it catches on. I can't wait to go back

Paris in Dallas
My wife and I happened across Mercat by accident and we are so happy we did. We recently came home for a vacation to Paris and were so happy to find a place that captures the look and feel of France. Everything we had was delicious, but the grilled salad and the short rib were stand outs. Go now.

I've had lunch here and dinner. Best quiche I have ever eaten!! For dinner we had the brushcetta, which was excellent, mussels were very good, steak had good flavor but a little tough. Love the size and ambience and definitely will go back. Very accommodating staff.

Very good French Bistro
Very good French bistro. Most authentic bistro in Dallas. Good wine selection. Overall a notch above the admittedly few local authentic French bistros. Very good food, nothing, however, to knock your socks off. Just wish it was around the corner. A lot of hassle to go downtown for a very nice meal that is not necessarily a special occasion type destination or weekend scene type place. Would be happy to go there weekly for decent, fairly priced food. If Mercat had something simple like homemade oh my God best ice cream ever, for example, it would entice me to go the extra mile (s) to go there. Was very quiet Saturday night 7-8 PM, I hope this place can make it for years to come but was surprised how slow it was given the quality. 4.5 stars

Add this to the rotation
Everything was fantastic. The server knew the menu and made good recommendations and management followed up without being obtrusive. All and all this was a hit

Great Uptown French Bistro
I've been to Mercat a couple of times and always had a good experience. And its nice to go to a restaurant that is conscious that in Dallas, we have several choices and tries to make sure you are happy with your experience. Even the hostest came to check on us to inquire whether we were satisfied with our table. Now, when is the last time that happened?!

Such a great find!
Really incredible food and great service! One of my new favorite restaurants!

The food was very thoughtfully prepared. The plates were nice China. The service was a bit too casual for the degree of quiet intimacy the restaurant conveys. The service was good, mind you, but too casual for the venue. The space itself is cozy and rather small, but nicely done. I recommend this for dates, but not for a large group (as that would take up the whole restaurant). I hope this place stays in business a long time as Dallas needs more good French restaurants!
A- But a solid A.
