The food is quite good but overpriced ( 23 dollars for eggs benedict, 15 dollars for a mimosa ).
You can find other spots with a similar menu and just as good but for less. You are definitely paying for the decor and for the restaurant being in a trendy neighborhood.
Service was sloppy, tableware and service weren’t cleared while being served main course... drinks ordered were forgotten, and drink I ordered was 86 and I was made aware by the waiter while finishing my lunch.. I was not happy at all with raw bar, $48.00 and mussels that were presented were not all fresh or fully opened... I’ve known JGV since when I worked at The Drake Hoteland he was at Lafayette, big surprise how lack luster the staff was..
Great experience but the playlist was terrible. I think they were playing the radio? Not very Jean-Georges.
Great food but slow to serve. After notifying the manager, service improved and we were treated to a few wonderful additions on the house. Steak was fabulous as was the salmon sushi over fried rice balls.
The best omelet I've ever had! It was delicious, and I would definitely return!
Sharp plastic was found in my friends mashed potatoes.
Manager did try to do something about it but once you see that you can’t eat there anymore. Slap to the chef
Great service and awesome food! A little noisy in front of dining room, near kitchen less noisy! Great experience!!!
Come over 3x to remove the plates when we weren’t done.
Everything was verynice - exept the desert we had was too heavy for our taste
Fantastic food! Outstanding really. Went for dinner with friends and we both loved it. Must try the salmon sashimi appetizer - will not disappoint.
Service was excellent, no complaints there. The decor downstairs is very tired, I hadn't been here in years and it felt like we were in someone's basement. Or a dark cafeteria. The place needs a makeover. The food was good but not excellent - which is what I expect from Jean George. Little things mean a lot- the wine glasses and were small, like something my grandma would use. The silverware and plates were water stained, they felt dirty. Honestly, we would have left before ordering if we weren't so hungry. And then you get the bill and you think " What have I done?" I looked at my wife and apologized - we felt ripped off.
It’s been a while since visiting this Soho staple. Quality and presentation needs some refresh. Over fair meal by JG. Would have expected more.
I felt like an old fogey at Mercer Kitchen the other night, because all the diners looked to be young investment bankers and their stylist friends. Average age 28. Very chic. Loud. Entitled.
HOWEVER, food here is excellent, and reservation staff and wait staff is also superb. What's a 50 year old to do?
Extremely rude and arrogant staff. They stood next to us and spoke loudly so we could hear "are they literally gonna stay here forever?". We were one of the last tables but the place was still going to be open for another hour. Overall very obnoxious male waiters, I would not go there again.
I wasn’t expecting to be seated in a communal table with a bunch of college students talking loud and laughing even louder..
Very good. Something for everyone on the menu. Ambiance was very fun and energetic. Great for date night or girls night out. Pricey drinks!
The trifecta of NYC dining - cool ambience, delicious food and great drink menu Lots of nice seafood selections - however, menu has plenty of meat options as well. Definitely a great date night or cool place to meet up with friends. Only downside bring your Amex as pricing is definitely NYC
Beautiful establishment. Loved that they check in your belongings. Servers were very attentive. Drinks were great. I think the pricing is too much for the food though. The drinks were worth it but the food was eh.
Great food ! Best sea bass carpaccio. Had also veal Milanese but... ok... salad too sweet with it. Maybe a mustard sauce salad 😜
Our waiter was great. Food delicious too.
I know this place has been around forever but maybe fhat’s not the selling point you might think it is? The food was just OK. The service was good but good service of mediocre food is a painful contrast.
Always the fabulous Shrimp Salad
Ce n est plus ce que c était !!!
J avais l habitude de venir dîner au Mercer Kitchen à chaque passage à NYC. J ai été très déçue: plats fades et minuscules, service très moyen, un plat oublié, le vin qui arrive après les plats, et... tes cher pour ce que c est. Dommage car le lieu est magnifique!
It was a great event and a pleasure to stay there! Thanks for the great service and the nice birthday surprise 🎉
Portions are small. Food is nothing great. Service is kind of rude
Beautiful space, delicious meal, and top notch service. See you again!
I've been going to Mercer Kitchen for years and love the food. The waitstaff is well trained and attentive but it seems that, especially of late, part of their training involves putting an inordinate amount of pressure on guests to finish their meal and make room for the next round of guests. We had an early reservation for two at 6:30pm on a Thursday and by 7:30 we were constantly interrupted by multiple waitstaff that were clearly being overattentive for the purpose of hurrying us up. Small, overpriced cocktails were being whisked away before one could finish. By 8:00pm the decibel level was incredibly high. Jean George's reputation keeps this place very busy but I know of other restaurants of this caliber that don't make you feel like you've stepped into a noisy culinary rush hour. A straightforward dinner for 2 without a lot of frills was $260 - too much for that kind of treatment but I guess they've got some heavy rent to pay.
Food quality ok not as expected price value ratio low.
Best thing was the service staff! Thumbs up!
Horrible service! Food was disgusting! Our waiter never checked on us ONCE!!!!! I used to come her every month and now I will never come back again. Very disappointing....
Great! We love the food, ambiance and it is always reliably tasty!
Mercer Kitchen is my go to restaurant. I love the food. The service is great. The room is fun but not overbearing. The salmon sashimi is one of my favorite dishes! I could eat the warm shrimp salad everyday. Perfect.
Great choice for a birthday brunch. Nice selection.. Everything was delicious including the Bloody Mary's! Table was off to the side and we could hear each other... a real bonus to find this in the city!
Food was not good, service was sub par.
This is my go to brunch spot! The food is incredible and have never had a bad experience.
Très belle expérience, resto très branché
The ambiance, service, menu selection, and food are great. Its VERY noisy though, and my party had a hard time hearing each other. It's also quite pricy, but the quality of the food is excellent.
We ate downstairs and the room was extremely hot, maybe because of the open kitchen. It made it uncomfortable and harder to enjoy.
Awesome ambiance. Food was great and drinks were A+! Will return for sure.
Excellent saumon, cuisson à la demande. Excellents desserts, portions copieuses. Nous avons adoré le cadre et la déco. Service affable et efficace.
