We keep waiting for the chef to bring back the scallops dish but we are losing hope. When they were on the menu we visited nearly once a week. Now....maybe once a month. Other people we know have felt the same and have reduced their visits to Mercado as well. Finally, we noticed the restaurant was not busy at all on a Saturday night at 8:00 PM. (Many many open tables) Also on this night we notice a reduction in service (waiter forgot our drinks and other things.) Maybe the restaurant has lost its flair? Nevertheless, the food is still the best in that area and there are a lot of restaurants in that area. ;)

The chef needs to be aware of this since you feelnit after you’ve left the restaurant and the next morning. Way too much salt but delicious.

Ambiance is pleasant. Food is quality. It’s a little bit loud for people that are hard of hearing. They have a good happy hour. It’s a PERFECT location when you are looking for a quality upscale casual restaurant that’s a middle place between The Valley and West Hollywood or Valley and East Hollywood. Also, it’s called “Hollywood” location but it’s on the valley side and super easy to get to.

When you cannot order, shrimp for instance on a salad, it doesn’t leave you with a feeling like you want to return.

Great brunch-y choices along with some of their usual excellent dishes. My dish was a take on their Gringas tacos brunched out with eggs -- it was pretty darn good. Might end up being my go-to dish to freak friends out. One might think on a quiet Sunday morning the service and food might be lazy...not the case here! These folks are always on their A game. I will be back!

Except that we were celebrating both our friend’s’ birthday and when we discretely told our waiter about it he said he would take care of it. He brought us our bill and nothing was brought to our table. It ruined the end of our night to have not been able to sing Happy Birthday to our friends. Paying for the damn dessert would not have been a problem.

Very noisy and not very busy so it didn’t need to be cranked up so loud. Opentable let us down on this one.

The food and service have been exemplary on my last three trips there. You would never know that it's part of a mini-chain because the food is fresh, flavorful and well-executed in every way. The menu could use more depth in terms of excellent entrees but the carnitas is so good it keeps me coming back. This trip I took two out of town foodie guests. They loved it. Well done!

The place is extremely noisy and overstimulating (for me). Loud music, poor acoustics. We ordered guacamole which took a long time to get and within minutes of getting it our food came out. Not good. The food is excellent but we had to rush the appetizer so the food wouldn’t get cold. That wasn’t our experience last time so maybe it was a particularly busy night for them.

While it is not an inexpensive meal, it is certainly a good one. I was entertaining clients and all of our food selections were good. The guacamole is off the hook. I have gone to Mercado several times and it can't miss.

It’s about 2 blocks from Universal Studios & about 15-20 drive to the Greek. It’s small w/a casual ambiance but the food is sensational. Their quacomole is fantastic (luv the pumpkin seeds) Their drinks R small but strong & tasty. My son got the carnitas & I got the jumbo shrimp on a bed of rice. Everything was incredibly delicious!! Only negative was the rude hostess who tried to seat us in between 2 other couples in an extremely small table (which made no sense because there were about 10 empty tables) When I asked to please be seated in our own booth she acted annoyed & didn’t want to seat us there & then proceeded to tell us we would have to hurry up because they get very busy & they need to save these tables for when the rush comes in. I wanted to say...... excuse me but I don’t care about a rush that’s gonna happen in an hour ... I want to be seated now & be finished w/in 40 minutes so I can go to my concert. It was a tad bit rude in my opinion. But, other than that... everything & everyone else was AWESOME!!! I would still go back whenever in LA.

The kale salad was perfect. I loved our waitress. She went the distance in trying to accommodate my picky tastebuds. She also remembered to check on us after she served our meal. The high ceilings did make for a noisy environment, but manageable. I would definitely return.
