There were only four tables while we were there. The service was remarkably slow and strange - we were given 2 menus for 5 people and then didn't see the staff for 5-10 minutes. Once we ordered the food, it took forever for the food to come out. Food was unremarkable at best. We will not return.

We've driven by this restaurant too many times to count but never went in because the exterior of the restaurant looks so poorly taken care of. Finally, Saturday evening we decided to give it a try with friends. The wait staff who are also the hosts seated us promptly and delivered our drinks right away. The sangria and the margarita and two other drinks were quite good. However, once we had our order of guacamole delivered to our table, it went downhill from there. The guacamole was sooo spicy it was inedible. We told the wait person we did not want it. Everything we ordered for entrees was equally spicy and we vowed we would not return. So sorry to have to say this 'cause we were hoping for better.

Although we had read reviews about the poor service, we thought that this place would be a good place to try for the first time. As we walked in, the hostess greeted us as if "What are you doing here?". No smile, no salutation, nothing. The food was good, although not completely outstanding, which was totally fine. Standard Mexican with a few good extras. Guac was a bit mushy, but still tasty. Carnitas were good, with a nice bit of pineapple mixed in. Plenty of food at a good, reasonable price. We would go back again.

Food is always good. Service always seems a bit off. Wait staff overwhelmed and long delays in getting food. Perhaps they need more staff

Best dishes in our party were the Chicken Yucatán and the salmon. Did not care for their spicy cocktails--undrinkable and uncomfortable. Fruity cocktails very good though.

Finding a reliable place to dine that's not a scene on the East End is not always easy. Welcome to Mercado! The food is consistently reliable and the portions are generous. Service is attentive but not intrusive. Indeed this is good value for the price in every sense, though true Mexican foodies might quarrel with the authenticity of many of the dishes. I, for one, will keep coming back.

Relaxed atmosphere. A little bit of a dive. Food was authentic Mexican and very tasty. Beware some of the food can be spicy.

The food was very tasty and the service was very good. Attentive. I didn't love the table we sat at because we were 7 people at a rectangular table so hard for everyone to converse. Round tables are the way to go!

Totally mediocre experience. The food was fine - t was everything else that was wrong. There is absolutely no atmosphere. A sports bar ambiance with insipid music. Bad lighting and decor and no positive vibe, Customers come in, eat and leave. Not right for the Hamptons and economically not right for the management.
