overall ok experience but unsure if I’d go back.

Went because they mentioned being under new management but food still was a hit or miss. Churros were very disappointing and soaked in grease. The empanadas were pretty good. Service was ok. Server did keep our mimosas filled but seemed disinterested/tired. We asked the server if the churros would be fried hard and he said they were soft. They came fried hard and converted in grease !

Thank you for dining with us at Bar Mercado and we regret that some of the dishes were not to your preference, specifically the churros. It sounds like this may have been a mistake as we don't ever hear this feedback about this dish! We would love the opportunity to connect directly if you would be open to it. Please share your email address if we can get in touch!

Bar Mercado has recently made some menu and interior changes, including the bar, adding TV’s, new playlist and more. The menu has shifted to Latin American and its baller. We dined with 4, sat in the bar area and shared everything including platos. Our favorites were the arepa, empanadas, avocado salad, tostones and the short rib platos! Best short rib we have ever had. Every drink on the menu was LIT... you can order some in larger format to share or a porron if you’re looking for some fun!

Thank you for sharing such honest feedback, and we are disappointed to know you are upset with the shift. There is no easy way to make change, and we apologize that it has felt abrupt. We are listening to the demands of the majority of our diners and also honoring the culinary talent in our kitchen. The transition is bound to be a little rocky, but know with time it is going to be amazing. We hope you will check back frequently for new updates and as we refine the menu.

This place is great! The food was delicious, and the service was excellent. My only suggestions are that the inside seating near the bar could be a bit quieter. Also, we ordered a lot of food all at once, but despite our request to stage the food coming out over the course of our dinner, and with smaller dishes before larger dishes, the kitchen just prepared the food when they felt like it, such that dishes came out in the wrong order. I’ll know for next time, but my advice would be to order things sequentially, in the order that you’d like them to come out. Otherwise, enjoy!

Overall, it was a mediocre experience. The food and environment were both enjoyable. However, my server lacked a sense of personality and care. We asked for his opinion for food options and he continued to shrug and act confused. When asked about the sangria, he merely said “just get what you want”. There was another server named Tanner that saved the day and was amazing! However, I can’t even remember my assigned server’s Anne because he lacked a sense of engagement the entire time.

I celebrated my birthday here and Daniel took very good care of our bunch! I usually come for happy hour midweek but glad I came to enjoy the bottomless brunch drinks (choice of mimosa or sangria). Daniel made sure that our glasses were never empty! I didn't even stop to think that the entrees would also be tapas style, so I reccomend ordering a few things for your table to enjoy! Most people in our group order the steak and eggs or the chicken and churros and everyone was happy!

My only and most important issue was that their chicken paella is cooked in shrimp stock, but that's not mentioned anywhere on the menu. My husband is severely allergic to shellfish and ordered not knowing as the description does not state. Thank goodness he had a drink prior to having a spoonful force could have been at the hospital. The resturant apologized and offered to give him something else, however it ruined the experience for him. At that point he was afraid to eat anything else. We have been to places that cook it with no seafood so as it didnt staten the menu we assumed it was okay based on the menu. I just want them to update the menu to mention that the dish contains seafood to avoid a potential severe medical incident.
