Very quick and good food
Amazing service, drinks, and food!
The waiter was terrible not very accommodating
Had to wait 45 minutes before we got seated for our reservation
We had a 7:15 reservation and were not sat until 8pm. The bar was packed and definitely not following covid protocol. We were sat in the basement which was nice because it was less chaotic. Service was fine, food was below average. Best thing about the night was the margaritas.
Excellent service. Great cocktails and the lobster tacos were delicious. The guacamole had the perfect amount of heat - chips were fresh and warm.
Such a fun place! Everything was amazing, especially the different types of salsa.
Wonderful margaritas and tacos in a cool vibe.
Creative and delicious
Would recommend to a friend
Loved the food 🤩🤩 excellent ambiance
With 6 people standing at the hostess stand, you would expect quick service. We waited 16 minutes for water and that is only because an employee was flagged down. Servers had masks half way on their faces. Overall poor experience for a place that we usually enjoy.
Celebrated both of our birthdays and really had a great time. The managers were very nice and helpful
Literally, everything is good. Nothing is “better” than something else. It’s just all good. Get anything.
I forgot how loud it is here! Good, consistent food. Good service that waned as place packed them in. It was nice not to be rushed though. Perennially a favorite!
I got sick from the margarita
Good food and service but it is so loud that it’s difficult to have a conversation.
This is extremely loud place for me. Second time I go there and is the second time I regret going.
Great evening, server was terrific
I’ve loved mercadito every time I’ve been. Definitely my go-to spot! Chicken tacos are absurdly good, and the service is so fast! Love it!
Great birthday lunch.
Service was excellent .
Camaron tacos were reminiscent of eating in Acapulco overlooking the Bay.
Tres leches were top notch.
Your hostess, Isabelle, bent over backwards to make us feel special. Great asset!
Food and drinks were exceptional. Especially loved the Pastor tacos and Brussel sprouts appetizer. So delicious!
We had a girls dinner here and the service was outstanding. We split a couple of things and it was just the right amount and under $50 for each of us. Definitely will be back!
Amazing service and great food (especially for vegetarians )
Overall a very nice evening
Hreat food and outdoor seating
I loved going to Mercadito. We were able to sit outside because the weather was great. The service and food were awesome. The waiter made sure to refill our drinks and check on how the food tasted. Restaurant is a bit pricey, but that is normal in the area. Just take a look at the menu and you know what to expect before you go.
Our server was amazing! It was our first time, and we loved it because of her
Mercadito never disappoints. I'll definitely be back.
Ashley was an amazing waitress! She was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and made some great suggestions for us which were helpful because we had never been before.
The food and drinks were also amazing!
We were visiting from NY and were regulars when mercadito built its roots in NYC. It was great to eat the delicious tacos again. Best tacos outside of Mexico, hands down.
The service was great and very attentive. While the food was enjoyable, it wasn’t good enough for the price we paid.
Service was terrible. There were 4 of us and our food came out in 3 waves with about 10 minutes between the first and last person being served. Asked for recommendations and given very few words or input. Server never came around much to table. Too crowded. Noise level was awful.
Great food with a warm ambiance! I loved the shrimp tacos and the guacamole was amazing. The staff is very nice and accommodating. I’m looking forward to coming back again!
Waitress just wasn’t attentive… we would have ordered so much more!
Foodis always off the edge. Drinks are always fire.
