Paella was a little different- not your typical paella. Pollo asado was grilled perfectly- chicken was moist- very good. However- not as spicy as one would expect for asado. I ended up using the jalapeno salsa to add a little punch. We ordered grilled bread with melted cheese & hummus. The bread & cheese was very good. Strangely, they served the hummus with a bag of Stacy's Pita chips. My advice to management- The hummus was very good but serve it with the grilled bread instead of the bag of chips. The french fries were also very good.
One element of the menu which could be improved were the mixed drinks. All seemed to be watered down/weak.
Overall- it was a good value for the meal. It was a very busy evening on Krog St. & our seating was perfect for the weather & people watching. (sit outside if possible). Food was good- very good.
It's good to get out an see the world again! Atlanta such a great city!

My spouse and I discovered Bar Mercado while looking for dinner takeout options during the pandemic lockdown in 2020. Since we love their food, we decided to dine-in. The experience was great. The ambiance was nice and the service was excellent. Our wait staff never made us feel rushed, which made for a relaxing and delicious meal. Unfortunately, this has not been our experience at most of the American restaurants where the wait staff begin removing the plates before we finish chewing the last bite.

Our server was the bartender, and although I can't recall his name right out (Javier maybe?) he was OUTSTANDING!

He floated between the bar and his tables seamlessly.

I recommend the Late July beverage - absolutely delicious.
I enjoyed the Ropa Vieja and my Partner enjoyed his Vaca Vieja.

I look forward to trying their Paella (just have to make sure it's cooked without pork, if you can already read this, Bar Mercado, because I am definitely returning with my Partner AND other friends).

The atmosphere was fantastic and ultimately, the experience was quite memorable. I look forward to returning soon and recommend it to anyone living in or visiting Atlanta, looking for authentic Spanish food.

I had a dinner with friends for my birthday here last night and it was incredible. We were a party of 10 with a reservation on a Monday night. They seated us right away. Our server did an absolutely phenomenal job and the night was made so much better by it. The food was delicious (the tapas! are so good!) and the drinks were creative and fun. There was 0 hastle with splitting the bill, a testament to our server's expertise.

I was nervous about finding a restaurant with this big of a group, but Bar Mercado handled everything with excellence. I can only recommend. Thanks for making my birthday so fun!
