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.

Atmosphere and service great, but food was tasteless and disappointing for a Vong restaurant. We will never go back and if asked, we will tell people to avoid it.

Mercer Kitchen doesn't disappoint menu wise. But be sure to request seating in the main restaurant, downstairs area. My group was seated upstairs and it is a very different atmosphere. It feels more like a coffee shop vibe while downstairs is a darker, trendier type of restaurant feel. The upstairs can be cold too since all tables are pretty close to the door. The service staff was too attentive as there were several instances when our plates were cleared with food remaining on them while we were still eating. We had to request new plates be given so we could finish eating.

Love the food and ambiance.. even the wine collection. Specially the lamb, was outstanding.. I would definitely visit again. Except, service needs a little improvement, a little more friendlier staff is really can jazz up the place.

Disappointing thanksgiving dinner. Cold soup, plate of turkey looked like a mess. Pumpkin pie tasted like it came from Walmart. Too pricey, poor service and just like a factory. Awful experience.

Thanksgiving Dinner so the restaurant was super busy. It was too noisy to talk properly and so busy that new diners were standing literally over the top of us (the bar was full) waiting for a table whilst we were trying to eat. It was so dark that we weren't the only ones using our phones to actually see the food on our plates when served. The server was rude and ignored us when my daughter couldn't produce an ID as she had innocently left it in another bag. There was no need to be rude, it was a simple mistake and she was happy to accept not being able to order alcoholic drinks. There was no flair in the presentation of the food, it looked like a roast my grandmother would have served. The restaurant came highly recommended and it failed to deliver.

Thanksgiving dinner, very busy. Server was great at pouring water but otherwise completely inattentive. We arrived 10 minutes early for reservation and waited for 25 minutes. The food was good quality, but not served in a timely manner. My brother ordered a glass of chardonnay to be delivered with his entree and 10 minutes later we were still looking for our server. Found someone else willing to get it. Server never came by to see if our food was prepared to our liking and my son ate a rare steak instead of medium as he ordered it. My medium rare came out closer to rare but at least the meat was good quality. The table next to us was 45 minutes between their order and the appetizer. They were understandably complaining louder than us... We would go back because we believe they could be capable of much better, but we wouldn't go back for a Thanksgiving dinner...

It’s a thanksgiving night, arrived early due to appointment canceled, and no one even told us to go to the bar downstairs to wait for seats, and upstairs bar would not allow us to wait. So 5 of us have to wondering around in cold for an hour and our sitting was even pushed back for 30 minutes. Very bad experience, and it did not seem like $125 per person priced ranged Resturant.

It’s so hard on a pre fix menus night to make anything great... The food was cold the service was slow and it was overall a wild waste of money...

We were excited to try Mercer based on a referral. But the experience wasn't so great. Really nice ambiance. But service was so so. What really upset us was a server clearing the table poured olive oil all over one of our guests. No real apology. Just kinda a whoops.
The food was ok . Not anything special would we go back? Not likely

The food was ok, nothing extraordinary, but it wasn't about the food. The service was UNEXAPTABLE. It took almost 15 minutes to get us water. But the waitress took her time to reapply her lipstick (yes, in front of us). No one checked on our table to see if we're ready to order/need anything else/etc...overall - disappointed. Not coming back, that's for sure.

I showed up to my reservation 10 minutes late after being stuck in traffic on my way there. Knowing I would most likely lose my reservation, I called the restaurant 7 times to warn them of my tardiness. No one answered the phone and when I arrived i was informed my reservation had been given away. I proceeded to wait an hour and a half until the “next” table for two opened up. I will not be back here nor would i recommend it to anyone.

Mercer Kitchen was fantastic! I had the Mercer burger, which was excellent. This place has a great vibe to it with music, which is much appreciated compared to the stuffiness of midtown. :)
