The food and service were amazing!!!
First time at Mercadito. Very creative menu, not Tex-mex. unique dishes, very well prepared. Excellent Rita’s.
Amazing restaurant great food
The food was excellent I’ll definitely go again for that.
The food was quickly served.
The only place for improvement would be the waiter didn’t attend our table at all. Would have been a better experience if we didn’t wait so long at our table.
The dessert was good.
I had a birthday celebration with girlfriends. Great food…and one girl was a vegetarian. We had great options. Yummy food, great drinks and great company. Can’t expect more than that!
Great food and service, just very noisy.
Ashley was awesome! Food and drinks are consistently amazing.
The restaurant itself is cute. It is very small though. Was a little too cold for our liking. The food was just okay
Our group of 6 was seated at 7:40 for our 7:45 reservation, and were asked by the manager to ‘wrap it up’ at 8:50 because the group behind us was ready to be seated. One hour and 10 minutes is an unacceptable amount of time to be expected to dine with 6. Thankfully this wasn’t for a special occasion.
We had a reservation and got seated well within an acceptable time for a Saturday night. The food here is outstanding as are the margarita's! Our server Jose was fabulous! We took his recommendation on dessert and it was sooo good. The tables in the center of the dining space could be a bit bigger. Getting water, drinks and food on them at one time can be a bit of a challenge. We will be dining here again and would recommend this restaurant to others.
Always love Mercadito but wish they would put more alcohol in the overpriced drinks lol
The food was great. My niece wanted tacos and it fit the bill. We definitely enjoyed the food.
Everything was perfect. Food , drink , service… a bit expensive
I will come back
Great food and service! Jose was great!! Drinks were strong and delicious!!
Had a reservation at 8 but did not get seated until 8:45. What is the point of a reservation then?
Seated 45 mins after reservation
LOVED the food, happy with service and energy. In my recent experience, this was the most-crowded restaurant In which I have dined. It was on a Friday night. The noise level is so high and people so close, it was difficult to talk. I might like to try it for lunch if open.
Had hoped to eat outside on a nice weather evening, but section was dead so headed inside. Good menu selection and quality of food was very good.
We fly in from Miami every so often and always go to Mercadito. The food and cocktails are the best things outside of being in Mexico. All fresh and tasty.
Excellent service and attention to gluten-free requests as members of our party have Celiacs Disease. Drinks and food were delicious!
Great lunch date with my wife! We had the Brisket, Estilo Baja, and Camaron tacos… all were amazing!
Did not get booth
Tacos were super cold!
Mercadito’s vibe is tough to beat, and the tacos and margs are excellent. That said, it’s rather pricey for what it is and they seem to be hurting for waitstaff, as it took what felt like an eternity for us to put in our food order and to get the check at the end of the evening
Great margaritas and guac!!
delicious food, great service. LOUD
I loved it
Great service and extremely fast. Drinks and food were great but was very loud in the restaurant.
Greta food, fun ambiance.
Really good. The spicy margarita with avocado was amazing and the freshly made salsas are delish. All the food was great. Would definitely dine here again.
Because we were 5 mins late, we were seated an hour after reservations…. Never had such poor hosting service. People were being seated before us, they had a later reservation but because they checked in early they prioritize those reservations first. It was a mess.
Friday night noise level is like an Iron Maiden concert, front row, in front of the Marshall stacks. 40 minute wait for a 8:00 pm reservation. Excellent tacos and drinks
Went for a friends birthday and she really enjoyed! The seasonal drink special was great (I’m blanking on the name, something with grapefruit). I love the tacos here and visit often.
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.
