This is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE GO TO SPOT!! The Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita is like crack:-) Best drink ever if you like Spicy. The skirt steak and fish tacos are my favs. The guac is the BEST!!!
Always excellent !
I had the chicken, mash and corn, the sauce was excellent, I'm still thinking about it 2 days later, will be back!
The manager (I forget his name - i only remember that it was middle eastern)was exceptional. The food is good. The service is good enough. The drinks are weak but pleasant and the management picks up on every little detail making he most high maintenance diners (me!) feel like the restaurant was built for them.
We went for Happy Hour and it was great! Menu selections were good, the tacos and Dos Gringos were really good too!
The food was delicious! The guacamole was perfect, and it was paired with a Smokey chipotle salsa. The spicy cucumber margarita was just the right amount of spicy and so tasty! The micheladas were spicy, but still flavorful.
The manager was very accommodating for my party. I had a reservation for 8, but two more people showed up, and it was handled perfectly.
Everything was too salty
Great food! Mexican cuisine with a flair and the flan for dessert (and I am not a flan person) is not to be missed!
Food is a step above. Good service. Started with a glass of Tequila. Enjoyed the Carnitas and Elote.
Mercado is one of my favorite restaurants. I always recommend family and friends go to the Santa Monica or Los Angeles/Grove locations.
Mercado is THE place! Food bursts with supreme taste and freshness. Special mention to KATIA. Her hospitality skills ... her generous spirit was amazing ! That's why I keep on coming here. The service is as wonderful as what it serves . In fact, I'm taking my coworkers for them to experience this place. It never disappoints!- Maricel
Host did not have our reservation and would not seat us at a nearly empty restaurant - told us we would need to leave by 7:30 if we were to be seated at 6 pm. She also could not manage the 3 parties waiting to check in to save her life.
Manager sat us down but what an awful way to start the evening.
Great service . The table we sat at was horrible . It was located next to the check in counter and were repeatedly had my chair bumped . Order a simple gin and soda and wasn't that good . Hard to mess up a drink like that ..... we felt rushed . A party of two should not be sat in a community table , just a suggestion. We have been here plenty of times , this time not so good .
It was great as always
I love this restaurant! The food and margaritas were amazing. Every time I eat at Mercado I'm impressed by their very consistent quality and service. I met a friend here for dinner and drinks. I had a very tasty Carne asada and my friend had carnitas and chicken tacos.
This is not your typical Mexican fare. It's a cool lively place with a unique . We both enjoyed our experience at Mercado and highly recommend it. With a wide selection of drinks and tequila, and a happy hour M-F from 5-7pm.
