Excellent food, service and atmosphere! As always!
Lovely atmosphere, quiet for Sunday lunch. No bread available at lunch time for my pasta eating dining partner. Appetizers were good, lobster ravioli good.. specialty pizza was tasty but the crust was not crisp. Lunch salad was bland and did not live up to its menu description.
We have eaten at Mercato many times and have never had a bad meal. Everything is fresh and has lots of flavor
Alexandra our server and the manager could not have been nicer. The drinks were stellar but I wish the food had been better. The French toast was raw the first time around and I requested it be remade and the second time around, it was burnt badly and was simply inedible. They did take the item off the bill but the food should have been executed better. My wife ordered the Benedict which was a disappointment as well. The English muffin was not toasted, the eggs underdone and the bernaise was in its most watered down version devoid of any flavor. The home fries were raw and not cooked through when I had specifically asked for them to be well done. The menu looks good but execution is still a pipe dream. We will venture again to give the restaurant one more try for dinner but not for brunch as clearly they don’t seem to be have trained folks running the kitchen for brunch. 5 for service 0 on food and sadly you go out to eat so good service with terrible food just doesn’t cut it.
I have brought friends here a number of times and always receive good feedback.
Great service all evening. Had trouble with making reservation. When I called to reserve 6 people for 6:30, they still reserved table for 2. I saw on the opentable amount of people was wrong ,still for 2, and called second time to correct the number of people. They said no time for 6:30 for 6 people but 6:15 or 6:45 would work. I scheduled time for 6:45 but the table was ready at 6:30 when we arrived and we were seated. Why aggrevate me when I’m making a reservation on phone only to get the time I wanted when I arrived?
Mercato is my favorite! Food is always prepared well, servers are well informed, professional and friendly.
This was our first time here and we LOVED it!!
Nice night out at mercato with a great food selection & service. Will definitely be back!
Best meal of our lives! Keep the vday menu all year around <3
The food was extremely less proportion sizes. Service was not friendly or good at all. F
Thomas did a great job, very friendly. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was pleasantly intimate.
What a great Ristorante! I took my wife for Valentine's Day at the recommendation of a friend and it was TERRIFIC. I highly recommend the Paccheri Napoletani and the Mascarpone Crostini. Delicious!
Great night out with friends or family.
We had a nice time at Mercato. The food was delish! Our waiter, Ben, was outstanding. The noise level was pretty high. It was a nice evening. Would definitely go back again!
Great food and really good service. One of our favorites in the area.
We went for an evening out with 3 of us on Saturday. Two things I noticed. One is every time we go there, they seem to want to rush us out. We aren’t there to eat and run. This isn’t a cafeteria. We are there to hang out and enjoy the place, the food and each other. We waited an hour to get seated and then they took our order and the food was there in 10 minutes. Obviously the food was precooked.
Second, I asked if I could substitute spinach for the mixed vegetables on my meal. The waiter said they don’t substitute on weekends because it’s too busy. I’ve eaten there and many other places many times before and no one has ever said I couldn’t substitute a vegetable. They said I had to purchase separately. The cost for the spinach as a side order was $8. I didn’t order it and had to accept the vegetable that came with the meal even though I don’t like beans. Therefore I’m not planning to go back anytime soon. Very sad because their food is pretty good but there are other better restaurants in West Chester that let you substitute vegetables on their menu.
Food was great, service was excellent but food came out very quickly. It was hot and tasty. Very noisy restaurant.
Fun spot for get-together. Broad menu and quicl service.
Great food with good daily specials and A+ service.
Was craving a cheese board and I think I was looking for more of a variety of cheeses, like a soft cheese, and something with a peppercorn flavor, or truffle or something overall uncommon. The sides were nice, and we had the tuna tartare. I think it needed more ginger soy sauce but that’s personal opinion. Our server was great! Left ya alone to talk and drink and nosh. He wasn’t ever concerned about us being the last in the dining room at 9pm. We ordered dessert to go and he was really independent and non intrusive. Next time I will try an entree or pizza. The long hot martini was fab, and my friend liked her lemon drop martini. Thank you!
Great ambiance, great energy, welcoming staff. The food and cocktails were delicious :)
The food is always yummy. It’s cozy and the service is very good. The noisy level is distracting for having conversation.
Great dinner choices, specials, great service can’t wait to go back and try something else
Amazing Italian food and appropriate portions, which is nice. It was very crowded (dining & bar) on a Friday night and rather noisy, we made a reservation and only had to wait about 5 minutes. Very nice inside, great friendly service.
Fun restaurant. Busy bar scene Great food and very good service
We LOVED Tom. Great service, incredible food, definitely will return!
Went for lunch on Sunday, not crowded at all and had a wonderful meal with family. Tried the grilled calamari which turned out to be outstanding. Everyone enjoyed their entree choices and with BYOB there was a good time had by all.
Food and service were great and our table was ready as promised - but it was extremely noisy and they really cram the tables in there. We felt it hard to carry on a conversation.....website images make it look a bit closer to fine dining, so was not as expected. We would go back for sure, but not for a dinner where we would want some quiet conversation.
Pipe burst and we didn’t even get seated on NYE.
Dined on NYE and they didn’t have any bathrooms in working order. Didn’t front it when seated or mention it unless you had to use the restroom. Meal was fabulous although very loud inside.
Excellent food and great service
Excellent food and incredible service. Our waitress was awesome. Phenomenal overall dining experience.
We went to Mercato on Christmas Eve with our 3 kids and had a 7:30 reservation but arrived early and waited at the bar for a table to open up. The wait was a bit long but expected on such a busy night. Our waitress was terrific. Food and drinks were terrific. My only complaint was the extremely long wait for our meals after ordering. I believe we waited almost 1 1/2 hrs which dragged on since we were all so hungry. The waitress was great about checking on us during this time. Overall we had a wonderful night.
Good food and service. Seemed squeezed in as tables were rather close to each other but then again it was the holiday season.
The food was amazing, service was incredible. Great experience!
Food was outstanding, service very good also,
Will definitely return.
Waitress was awesome and helped my wife get exactly the meal she wanted for dinner. Very pleasant experience.
What can I say about my experience at Mercato’s? If I talk about the food and the service (Victoria was really sweet) they would get five stars. The C.A.B. Strip Steak is to die for. Their pasta is excellent. Zero complaints in that department. Our server Victoria was very busy but made time for the 4 of us on a Thursday night. But.....and this is a big but......unfortunately we were seated next to a table of young people who decided that screaming and carrying on at dinner was entirely acceptable. Apparently the thought they were at a sports bar and their team was winning all through dinner. Tables all around us were leaving as a result.
When we were leaving, I said goodnight and the young man decided to show the ladies how macho he was and proceeded to insult the 4 of us. The server and the manager quickly apologized to us but it didn’t enhance our experience much.
Go to Mercato for the food. Choose your seat carefully.
Had 7:30 reservation they said they were overbooked , bar was packed so went down the street to bar and waited . Got seated 35 min after reservation which was fine we were not in a hurry. Our server was AWESOME! It was loud in restaurant just be prepared . Bar is so small and only two bartenders that were working hard
