Been here many times. Food and service are always good. Food is authentic. Pappardelle bolognese is great. House wine - super tuscan - a great buy. Will most certainly be back.

5 of us are here for a business meeting. We are outside. Great weather. Good food. Excellent wait staff. It’s not cheap but it’s an excellent value considering the quality and overall experience. Will be back many times.

The food was really good. Our waiter was respectful and good, the staff seemed to have too many tables the night we were there. Our service was very slow. 1 hour into our dinner we asked if we could have our entrée brought out to us after having our appetizer for 30 minutes. We asked for a refill on drinks and it never made it out.

The vegetables were delicious. The pizza was atrocious. The crust was terrible and was burned. The sauce was tasteless. The cheese was tasteless. It came to the table lukewarm. Our server was absolutely lovely.

Not enough heaters for evening spring outdoor dining. Great apps- Arancini is outstanding, clams casino deliciously spicy. Main course: the veal is mouthwatering!

We had a great view of kitchen, where all the cooks wore their masks like chin diapers. It was very loud. Food was good except for dessert. I had a chocolate mousse which was thick like ice cream and extremely grainy with sugar. Also my strawberry mojito was very low on the strawberries, tasted like straight up rum.

We were excited to eat out this past weekend but when we arrived at the restaurant, it was fully packed! I felt extremely uncomfortable as we were seated , my chair back butt up against the person's chair behind me-no social distancing going on in the entire restaurant. We have dined here before so I noticed that all the tables were in play and there was no 6' apart going on. Noise level was pretty unbearable, I found myself shouting at my husband who was literally sitting across the table from me. We won't be going back any time soon:(

Good food, large portions, service attentive. Place was crazy busy so we were seated in the basement , which was fine. The restaurant was recommended to us and did not disappoint, EXCEPT that the food was as very salty, but that is a personal preference

Overall we had a nice meal at Mercado. I am unsure about the 75 minute time limit policy. I think that is a little excessive. I understand you’re trying to do it because of covid, but every table was sat at and I don’t understand what the rush to move people along when they’re going out to dinner. Our server was new, but she was very rude and rushing us along. I haven’t seen my sister in over a year and so we wanted to catch up but the whole time we felt completely rushed by the server. And as the night went on she just got more agitated with us and I just felt so uncomfortable. I made a reservation when I got there for another evening in May but after our experience with the time situation I’m probably gonna cancel it.

We loved the food & drinks.

Still my favorite dining spot. Any ocassion or no ocassion. The food is consistently excellent and the specials are always varied, interesting and delicious. My go to place for a hearty dinner salad usually topped with shrimp....this time it was cajun shrimp. A new cocktail added this season - lemon ginger martini - is sure to be a spring-summer treat. The indoor noise level tends to be loud depending on where you're seated. My preference is the high-tops in the bar or the tables right next to that area. The larger dining area gets noisy. We were seated next to a table of 4 family members whose conversation was so loud I could barely hear my dining partner. Once the weather warms up I will be enjoying the outside dining area which has been expanded and, last time I was there when the weather was warm, was packed with patrons.

We were first seated in a table outside until a storm popped up. The staff quickly moved us to a table inside and acted as if the storm was a non-event. There were a number of full tables on Sunday, but we probably could have gotten by without a reservation.

Was really disappointed in the service. Been here multiple times and never had an issue. Our service never came and checked on us I had to ask him for everything each time he walked by. He never came and checked in to see how we were doing or needed anything. Never had had this happen here super upset.
