    Apps were great but entrees were extremely salty (for the other i was with too).i can tell they would have been amazing if not for the salt..i honestly think the cap on the salt accidentally opened while it was being prepared. Server was so polite but just didn't attend to us enough to give us a chance to do anything about it. Service was very slow from start to finish and kind of left us out on our own to dry. Busboy came to ask if we wanted to wrap our food since we weren't eating it. Opted not to take home bc it was just not edible. Server returned so late to check in on us that all the uneaten food was gone and i told her about the salt but didn't seem to care much. Could have been great but sadly was not. ALSO 10% UPCHARGE FOR CREDIT CARD

    Mercato Kitchen & CocktailsResponded 2 days agoHi Natasha, thank you for your review. We hope you'll give us an opportunity to speak with you further as this is by no means the standard here. I do want to clarify, our menu prices reflect the price as is. We offer a cash discount as a thank you to our customers who allow us to avoid high credit card processing fees. We take pride in our quality of both food and service and truly apologize we fell short in providing you with a better experience. We hope you will give us another chance.

    We were out to celebrate mine and my friends birthday. We were a party of 5. We were taken at the time of our reservation. We had a great waitress who was very attentive. We were taken care of all nice long and the food is always AMAZING!!!!!!!! It was all of their first time and they all agreed that they would definitely come back. Thank you Mercato for always going above and beyond.

    We really wanted to like this place considering the reviews were fairly good. The food quality is just not there. The restaurant seems confused and doesn’t really know what they are, they are like a combination of an American diner and an Italian restaurant. The food was incredibly salty, and the cocktails weren’t great as the ingredients weren’t leveled. The check was $90 for A couple of drinks, a sandwich and pasta and it just was not worth it.

    Excellent food, excellent service and ambiance. I've been here so many times, I recommend trying so many of their tasty entrees. Whether for a fine dinner, or an afternoon burger, or flatbread, and a beer, Mercato is a great choice.

    Really good local find. Food was great from the appetizers to the entrees. Fried Mozz was the cheesiest I've ever had! Zucchini sticks were great too with an interesting choice of dipping sauce. We loved the ravioli entree. Portions were big and the service was friendly. We will be back!

    We have dined here several times. Unfortunately, during our last trip the food was salty and the service was lackluster. Several U.S. got the same dish and the portions were completely different and inconsistent. One a positive note, the restaurant acknowledged our friend’s birthday by having happy birthday on the menu and providing him a birthday dessert.

    Overall great experience. Our waitress was super friendly and offered great suggestions for first time diners. Drinks weren't too strong but packed a punch, the welcome bread was nice and warm and accompanied the oil and herbs quite nicely. The spinach dip wasn't the greatest so I would pass on that again but the Ragu pasta and the Truffle Gorgonzola pasta was spot on delicious! We ended the night with the apple crisp, a tad on the sweet side but served a la mode so who could resist. I'm glad we only ordered one as it's a large portion and totally shareable for 2 after such a heavy dinner.

    Food good as always, service lousy. Ordered unlimited drink option; had to keep finding server to ask for refills. Never once came over to check on table. First time having such an experience. Will be certain not to sit in his section again. Yes, they were busy, but he had no problem attending to a table with a larger party. Still love Mercato and would not hold this again them.

    We had a very pleasant experience -- first time here. Waited for our table at the bar, but table was ready within 5 minutes of arrival. Sausage and pizza flatbread was one of the best flatbreads I have ever had. Nice bar scene, and the drinks were good. They also have a nice outdoor tented area, that was relatively warm. Will def be back!!
