    We were there on the 23rd (highly recommend the day before Christmas Eve) in time for the last part of happy hour and enjoyed a flight of excellent wines and the cocktail of the day also excellent. Then we had a lovely dinner of tasty dishes from crudo & tartare, perfectly cooked duck breast and pasta and a fun finish with donuts that were like small bombolonis - it was an omnivore’s delight.

    The food is amazing, especially the salmon sashimi, squid ink linguine, oysters!!!! Ambiance is beautiful. Not noisy but close to all the action. Service is impeccable. The host that works the door Sunday evenings is absolutely the most gracious and professional. A++++

    My girlfriend and I had gotten there late for brunch, it was already happy hour. The gentleman at the door was polite and sat us down. He also kindly told us that brunch was almost over, Which we totally understood. As we are waiting for someone to come by and take our order My girlfriend starts feeling extremely uncomfortable because she had noticed the staff was whispering about us. All of a sudden I guess they noticed they weren’t being so subtle and a bald man with glasses awkwardly approaches the table very passive aggressive to tell us we look better sitting from the other side of the table and that brunch was already over. ( I cringed ) … at that point there was nothing that could be done to safe this unpleasant exchange of words. The server was ok but also rude. Although I have to say, the food was incredible Indeed enjoyed the dishes. But the service was mediocre at best and that awkward situation with whom I assume had to be the manager since when I asked if I could order he heard me and said he wasn’t … just walked away. I am not new to the service industry I’ve dined all over NYC from Jean George’s, to Masa, Nobu, Katsuya, you name it, even Lure fish Bar, Bar tulix and even Bowery Meat Company which are all owned John McDonald who happens to own Mercer Street Hospitality Founder. I’ve also worked in the hospitality industry and this has probably been the worse experience I’ve had yet to endure at a Mercer Street Hospitality Establishment. Hope this helps !!!
