    The food is the same (what menu items they've moved over to Gold Coast anyway -- they have to keep it watered down some for the hotel guests, at least that's what I presume), which is to say delicious. Quality and timing is very consistent -- far better than the location on Kinzie, by a mile. Service is excellent here. Staff is well-trained but they all have their own unique and wonderful personalities. Always professional. They don't need to turn up the music so loud on Sat nights though -- there are some big tables and it becomes impossible to hear what's said on the other side of the table. BUT -- one of my hands-down favorites, this place; am just lucky it's blocks from where I live. Love love love Mercadito.

    If you crave good Mexican cuisine in the Gold Coast try Mercadito. Good ambiance with broader than normal menu choices since also the hotel's restaurant. This was good for grandkids who had nice choices. Happy Hour till 7:00 with good value for drinks and apps. Had tacos, enchiladas and chile reinos and all very good as were deserts. Some nice specials during the week such as Taco Tuesday's. Our server, Olivia, was friendly and attentive. We will return.

    Good great, including chorizo omelette, fish tacos, french toast ( like honey topping) and chilaquiles ( could have been spicier). Bloody marys and mimosas were delicious too.

    Pros- We were late to our reservation but they still honored it! Drinks were delicious. Meat was very well seasoned and prepared. Cons- We waited for a host to greet us for a long time. Service was extremely slow. Music was very loud, our waiter didn't even hear our order, had to repeat it a few times. The tacos are overly complicated. Also, no valet service for a location with a horrible parking situation. Will probably not return to this location
