They always deliver! Great cocktails and tapas! Love this place.
Thank you MelissaB, it was great having you in at Bar Mercado!
We decide to take a late lunch/ early dinner on Sunday and ended up here. We had never been here before but have loved all of the other Castellucci locations; this one did not disappoint at all either. Service was fantastic; food was fabulous and conversation with the bartender and Stephanie (owner) were even better. We will be back for sure!
Thank you for dining with us Srw75! IT was great having you in and we look forward to your next visit!
Love, LOVED it. It was my second time there and it was exactly as great as the first! We had friends from out of town visiting and it was the first place I knew I wanted to take them. They also really enjoyed it! Love this place.
Thank you, RuthieG! It was great to have you and we look forward to your next visit!
I had some friends in from out of town for what would become our inaugural Bar Mercado experience. Despite having been to the Krog Market many times, I had never been to the restaurants just outside of the main market area.
Bar Mercado serves Spanish cuisine using a variety of regional styles. Being a tapas place, we sampled a variety of dishes during our time - standouts include the artichoke, empanadas, and the patatas bravas. The cocktail menu had a good selection of craft cocktails on offer. The biggest hit among our group was probably the "Rebel Rebel", although there was an interesting beer with a refreshing cucumber note available as well. Service was very attentive, and our waiter was good at offering recommendations of food/cocktails suited to the tastes of our group.
All in all, an excellent experience. Looking forward to our next visit.
Thank you Andrew! It was great to have you in this weekend!
We stopped in here without knowing what to expect. it was fantastic! We were thrilled with 5 of the 6 tapas plates we ordered and would definitely go back.
In fact we are planning to return very soon! Great staff and great food and reasonable prices
Thank you for joining us at Bar Mercado! We look forward to your next visit.
It was really hot in the private room
Thank you for dining with us at Bar Mercado and please accept our apologies for the heat! We will investigate this right away!
We have been a few times but this was the 4th and they had an amazing pri fixe menu and we had to go. We weren’t disappointed!
JWHartford - thank you for dining with us! It's always great having you in!
My Aeperol Spritz with a twist was best in a long time. Kudos to bartender.
We had brunch here and really enjoyed it. The food was great and the service was as well. The bottomless mimosa was very good also. They were very good about proactive refills.
CourtenayP - great to hear that you enjoyed brunch! We look forward to welcoming you again soon!
The food is too blend and it la is flavor, as well as it’s overpriced for no reason. At least if it was good I wouldn’t hAve minded
IvanaS - It appears we failed to deliver an exceptional experience while you dined with us at Bar Mercado. Please let me know if we can get in touch privately - I would appreciate some additional feedback on the items you tried and also want to ensure we can find a way to earn back your trust.
We had a great night at Bar Mercado. I made the reservation on our way over and indicated we were celebrating our anniversary. When I checked us in, they said "Happy Anniversary!" And once we were seated at a comfy corner booth the waiter came out and gave us a card that said Happy Anniversary from Bar Mercado and it was signed by multiple people with cute little messages. That was a great and thoughtful surprise. We ordered the artichokes, fried potatoes (patatas bravas), the trout, the hanger steak, croquettes de jamon and the empanadas. Everything was great. We especially enjoyed the artichokes and the croquettes. I probably wouldn't get the empanadas again as they were just alright and my least favorite. Everything else would be a repeat. We also enjoyed the red sangria, it was fruitless though (at least ours was), wine and beer. Overall a wonderful anniversary dinner.
KeishaMJ - Thank you for joining us at Bar Mercado and for celebrating such a special occasion with us. It was our pleasure to make the evening such a memorable one!
The food was ok but there aren’t many options for people who don’t eat pork. We asked if the paella could be make without pork and were told no. This was a huge disappointment. The veggie items we had were very appetizing though. Staff was not overly friendly. Furniture was being moved behind me as I was trying to eat and I felt as if I was in the way.
CandaceC - we regret that your experience was not exceptional. Please share your email address if you would be willing to connect briefly. Thank you!
Service was well-timed and friendly, but the portions were too tiny and okay quality. They didn't have non-alcoholic beer
PilarS - thank you for choosing to dine at Bar Mercado and we regret to read that the experience did not meet your expectations. Please share your email address if you would be willing to connect briefly. Thank you!
I love tapas restaurants but this is the best one I’ve tried yet! The pork and golden raisin empanadas were perfectly cooked and amazing, the duck drumsticks were juicy and delicious and the salad was awesome! The service was friendly, attentive, and very helpful with my 7 year old in picking things she would like. The restaurant has beautiful decor and a great outdoor dining space. It’s in the Krog St. Market, which is a really fun place to explore as well. Definitely recommend and look forward to dining here again next time we are in Atlanta!
Thank you StaciH! It was our pleasure to serve you!
I decided to try Bar Mercado because of a picture of the Avacado Toast with Lobster that I saw on Instagram. They also have bottomless mimosas and sangria for brunch. The service was absolutely wonderful and all of the servers were super patient! Their extensive wine list consists only of Spanish wines but if you aren't familiar with Spanish wines their bartenders are very knowledgable and will help you make a selection by asking you a few quick questions. The Sangria was too bitter for us so we opted to go for other drinks. I ordered the Patatas Bravas and the Avacado Toast with lobster. The potatoes were bland and very greasy! I laid them out on a napkin and the napkin quickly soaked up so much oil. I switched them to another napkin and the same thing happened. The dipping sauces that came with the potatoes were also bland. The avocado toast was not what I was expecting. The first piece of toast was so hard that I couldn't cut through it or bite it. The waiter replaced my avocado toast. Unfortunately, it was SUPER bland. I don't think any salt, pepper, or seasoning of any kind was used in the preparation of the dish. I wanted to much to love it because it looked beautiful, but it was a huge disappointment.
Marielle - we see you have written a review of your experience across multiple platforms. It's unfortunate that we were unable to address your concerns while you were in the restaurant, as we would have done whatever we could to remedy the situation. I know you are describing the avocado toast as bland (when you asked us to remove the miso butter) and the patatas as lacking flavor (when you asked for the sauces on the side). Please share your email address if you would be willing to connect.
First time visit for this local and a friend from Tampa. Cool atmosphere and vibe. Great food and drinks. Psycho Social was a fun drink but a little pricey for the size of glass. Would go back if in area again.
Thank you for dining with us!
The food and cocktails were great. I would go again.
FoodT - thank you for joining us and we look forward to your next visit.
Our party of five celebrated my birthday at Bar Mercado. Almost every dish we ordered was fabulous, especially the salmon, hanger steak, piquillo peppers, and sangria. (We were mildly disappointed with the artichokes and the hamburguesa.) Sharing each plate (and comparing opinions) made for an especially festive dinner out. Grace, our server, made the evening even better with her gracious and welcoming manner and thoughtful choice of words. I highly recommend Bar Mercado, especially for a group.
CisH - thank you for celebrating this occasion with us at Bar Mercado! It was our pleasure serving you and we look forward to your next visit.
Terrific Sunday brunch w/bottomless mimosas! Every entree at our table got high marks. We will be back!
Thank you for joining us for brunch, FamlL!
We loved everything about our experience! I tried the wine porron and cracked up laughing because of closed my mouth when I was finished but it the cava was still flowing!
The crispy artichokes, the piston and the lobster paella were all delicious!
The service was outstanding.
We cannot wait to return!
Thank you for dining with us at Bar Mercado! It was out pleasure serving you and we look forward to the next visit!
AWESOME. Food was great, service was great. Totally cool vibe in the place.
Thank you for joining us TamiM! We look forward to your next visit!
The food was fair to mediocre. We got a free mushroom happy hour dish that was delightful. We had Mac & Cheese - Pass, Duck - Pass, Peppers - Pass, Hamburgers - Good, Paella - GREAT, Service was excellent. I would would go back but I would only order the mushrooms and Paella and because the service was so good.
TaraB - thank you for joining us. We regret to read that your experience didn't quite meet your expectations. Would you be open to connecting for a brief moment? It is important to us that we improve, and also that this isn't your lasting impression of our restaurant. Thank you!
First time at Bar Mercado and definitely won’t be the last.
Thank you AnnetteT! It was our pleasure to serve you.
Best excuse to visit Krog Street Market. Can't wait to visit for brunch.
CowboiMindy - thank you for being such a great guest! We have enjoyed the opportunity to serve you and look forward to meeting over brunch soon!
Fabulous food, great service, fun patio area! Each dish was seasoned perfectly, and delicious !
Thank you for dining with us at Bar Mercado!
The food left much to be desired . The staff and ambiance was great- however we did come to eat and neither of us left satisfied with the food or the drinks .
Ress - we apologize that the evening did not live up to your expectations. We would love the opportunity to connect if you are open to a brief discussion. Please share your email address if we may be in touch.
Thank you for choosing to dine at Bar Mercado!
Had a nice time at this place. Drinks were fantastic! The cheese board was also great. Wasn’t impressed by some of the tapas we got.
Missgreek, Thank you for dining with us Bar Mercado! It's great to hear that you enjoyed your drinks and our selection of cheeses . We are disappointed to read that you did not enjoy the main course as much as you hoped. Please share your email address if you would be open to chatting briefly. We would love to know what we could do better and hope to welcome you back soon.
My husband and I went to Bar Mercado for our anniversary and loved it. Order lots of tapas and try lots of things. Everything was full of flavor! We will definitely be going back.
Thank you for sharing this special occasion with us at Bar Mercado! Happy Anniversary!
Great waiter. Mashed potatoes tasted like they were out of the box but everything else was fresh and delish.
AutumnW - thank you for dining with us at Bar Mercado. We regret to read that the potatoes did not meet your expectations. We hope to welcome you back soon to earn that fifth star!
Great location. Terrible menu. Steak Tartare...at a Spanish tapas restaurant? No croquettes...and the waiter didn’t know what this was. Cocktail was half a glass. Not sure the chef knows how to prepare a Spanish menu. First and last time.
PaulT, Thank you for dining at Bar Mercado. It appears we failed to showcase our menu in a way that would be appealing to your tastes and also missed the opportunity to deliver superior service. We would love to connect briefly if you would be open to it. Please share your email address and we will be in touch.
I went for lunch on sunday @1.45pm. It was disappointing that they only had a limited brunch menu. I had seen different interesting food items on the open table album that I was looking to try. Limited paid parking available across the street.
GjOmoba, Thank you for dining with us at Bar Mercado. On Sunday's we offer brunch until 3pm followed by our traditional dinner menu. We apologize for the confusion. We hope we have the opportunity to serve you again in the future to share more of our menu with you!
The waiter was amazing. The food and sangria made it a great Sunday outing
Thank you for dining with us at Bar Mercado!
Wonderful brunch to celebrate our first anniversary! We ordered the fried artichoke (delicious!), the banana bread (the only thing we thought didn’t quite live up to the rest but still tasty), the salad, the hangar steak, and the Benedict (my favorite!). They also brought us cheesecake to celebrate which was obviously house made and yummy - not too sweet. We will definitely be back to try to the regular menu.
Thank you for dining with us for such a special occasion! We look forward to welcoming you back for dinner soon!
fabulous food, the artichokes are incredible! bottomless mimosas are totally worth it
Thank you for dining with us for brunch!
Great wine and tapas
Thank you for dining at Bar Mercado!
Loved this restaurant! It was so cute and all the staff helped each other out even if it wasn’t their table. Our drinks were never empty! It was a great experience and we will be back.
Thank you for dining with us devondanielle!
Did bday brunch for my sister - our server was amazing! Byron I think? He was great. The food was expensive for the portions.
Thank you for celebrating with us Claire!
I’ve been coming since day one, and I’ve never had a problem before. In fact, this was my favorite restaurant.
This visit was like walking into a completely different restaurant. The service was poor, it looked like everyone was miserable. The food was nowhere near the quality I had become accustomed to, it seemed like the idea was to cut corners instead of provide quality product. It was also my birthday and while noted on the reservation, and mentioned to the server, there was no recognition of it. We’ve always done birthdays and anniversaries here. No more. I will also stop recommending bar Mercado to people. It’s hard to believe this is part of CHG.
Nice shared dinner for large family group. The fried artichokes and salmon were particularly good. The servings were small for the prices. Our waitress was very attentive and made good suggestions.
Thank you for dining at Bar Mercado!
