Fun, lively environment and great service from Matt and James!
The recipes are well chosen, the food is flavorful and healthy, and they stock a nice, but limited selection of wines. We look forward to returning.

Our New Year’s Eve dinner via tapas and small plates. Empanadas spread: spinach, beef and chicken. Fries and a little shrimp dish. Just amazing. Kick butt margaritas. I asked for a little salt on the rim not too much. He put salt on half the rim 😂 now that is a bartender!

Bar Mercado was wonderful! We had a great time with a group of 6 for a casual dinner on a Monday evening. Our server, Clifton, was very personable and a lot of fun. We shared many tapas (get the yucca fries & provoleta & chilaquilas!) and enjoyed tacos with the group to follow. The restaurant was sadly out of empanadas and plantains, so their potential deliciousness will remain a mystery. The kitchen was nicely accommodating of vegetarian options. Monday night discounted margarita carafes were also a win!

As always, we enjoyed an excellent meal here. With all of the tapas and dinner options, anyone can find something they like here. The outdoor patio has a great ambiance. My wife is a huge fan of the Roos Vieja here. She says it’s the best she’s had anywhere. Their avocado salad is excellent, the perfect amount of lime and freshness. And if you’re looking for a good non alcoholic drink, their Turmeric Tonic is very good.
One of our favorite restaurants in Atlanta.

Everything was nice, parking was a bit hectic but that’s typical for Atlanta. Server was nice we sat outside it was a nice ambiance. The food was amazing, pics are screenshots from a video but the food was amazing would definitely go back. Price isn’t bad either, we ordered a pitcher of margaritas, 2 shots of don, 3 appetisers and the shareable tacos all for $125.

We loved all the food we ordered, and the rum old fashioned was great! But we were never really assigned a specific server, so there were many times where we waited to grab someone’s attention to get in another food or drink order. Thankfully the kitchen is fast and we didn’t have to wait too long.

We really enjoyed the variety of foods from around Latin America. Some of the best Chilaquiles I've ever had. We went with all small plates because they all looked so good. But that means that we didn't make it to the entrées... guess we'll have to come back again.

The space is beautiful. We had a back table next to the kitchen entrance which didn’t bother us since we had a baby and didn’t want to bother other diners.

First impressions were that the space was beautiful, the server seemed tired and quite unenthusiastic. The food was better-than average but not exemplary.

The bathrooms didn’t have changing tables but there is one inside the Krog St Market.

I can see this place being extremely fun. Casual. Good times.

The food was tasty, and so were the cocktails. It took a very long time to be greeted by our server (7 minutes).

It’s customary to at least great yourself and tell the diners that you will be with them momentarily if you are busy hands long something else. I had to flag down the host and tell her we were ready to order. That just soured our date night experience.

Other than that, the prices are on point for a trendy popular Atlanta dining spot.

For 5 small bites, 2 entrees, and 4 cocktails, I was just around $200 when you include tip.
