Located at the Mercer Hotel, Mercer Kitchen brings a chic, sophisticated vibe to the heart of SoHo. When Mercer Kitchen opened in 1998, it immediately became a destination for New Yorkers, celebrities, and tourists. Situated in the basement of a historic building constructed in the 1800s, the… restaurant was designed by Christian Liaigre as a combination of industrial and classic modernism. Chef Jean-Georges’ American menu features market-driven, seasonal ingredients prepared in a simple yet elegant style, with favorites like the Tuna Spring Roll, Steamed Shrimp Salad, wood-fired pizzas, and classic Warm Valrhona Chocolate Cake. There is an open kitchen, where guests can sit back and watch the show.

Sea bass carpaccio and shaved fennel/arugula salad made a perfect lunch. Both were delicious.

I felt a bit put away in a corner, as a single traveler. Food was ok overall, the burger and fries were quite ordinary.

Horrendous service and terrible food. I ordered the fettuccine. It came with boiled peas and zero sauce. They forgot to put sauce on the pasta? This was unacceptable. Sent it back. The replacement dish was extremely salty. I’m not sure if they’re trying to do poorly on purpose. My husband ordered the burger. We asked for a medium cook on the burger. It came rare. The kind of rare that still belongs in the field and not on a plate. The food was abysmal. The service was worse. Our waiter kept disappearing on us. He gave us the menus and then disappeared for 20 minutes. Then for another 15 after we asked for the dessert menu. Save your coins and your time and go someplace else. Very disappointed.

Trendy but tired. Brunch was routine - nothing extraordinary. Our service was prompt and efficient, but you have to ask and wait for anything not initially ordered, like salt/pepper, or a refill on coffee. Lots of groups and families; a nice gathering place. Just not a wow experience.

We were sat 25 minutes late - very disappointing. I love this restaurant but having reservations should not mean you have to wait 25 minutes.

We had to wait 30 minutes past our reservation to be seated, they said they would bring out a few dishes to apologize for the wait that then never came. The waiter never asked for our drink orders or poured water throughout the evening. The service was absolutely terrible - a complete lesson in exactly what not to do even in a one star restaurant. We asked for cappuccino at the end of our meal and they said of course and then just poured a pot of coffee with no explanation. Everything was so odd and awkward and a terrible experience and will never go back here or recommend to anyone.

Good place for a visit. Maybe i expected too much or heard too much about the place. I expected 'wow' factor. I didn't 'wow'. Still overall way above average.

Always loved this restaurant except that for this one, service was slow (1 hour wait for the brunch items!) though they were not really packed since we were there from 1030AM. Please improve on this. Thank you.

The food was ok, but far from good enough compared to the price. The service was dreadfull. Our waiter even used his phone checking social media. Stay away from this place, much better value for money at other restaurants.

Guess they're used to dealing with tourists. Oysters were crap and after complaining still weren't taken off the bill. Yuck.

The room was VERY hot.

The food was weirdly portioned- my friend ordered the avocado toast, expecting what she usually gets at other places (either two pieces of thin bread or one fluffy slice...she got one thin sliced in two.), and it was one small slice. She was starving the rest of the meal and ended up ordering more

We ate downstairs, where there is also a bar. This place and the people in it look just like they do in movies and TV shows set in NYC: the place has a cool, energetic vibe, and pretty much everyone was good looking. The food is also very good, the wine list and cocktails were excellent, and, surprisingly, the prices were very reasonable. A great place for a date or before a night out with friends.

They lost our credit card. So I will never be returning. The service was extremely poor. We asked for several things many times and never got it. For the price we paid not worth it. Especially that they LOST our credit card . We now have to go through the hassle and calling our bank, being without a credit card for a week. The manager was there but she really didn't get it. Don't care how sorry you are, your service is poor and now we have to go through all the headache.

I’m a 6’3” 230lbs man. They sat us at a tiny table that seats 2, but there were 3 of us. We had a reservation and there were MANY open tables that were regular size. Not sure what was going on. As someone in the industry, I was questioning some of what was going on.
