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.

Overall pretty awful - food was served on paper plates, unripe vegetables, poor taste - they ran my card for the wrong check (a $200+ difference)

Outdoor seating options were not comfortable due to heat. No cover from sun. Only one side of the restaurant had shade and we were not given option to sit in that section even with a wait it wouldve been more comfortable. Food was good but due to heat was not able to enjoy and felt more comfortable rushing. Some umbrellas to help with sun wouldve improved experience. Wouldve expected this from restaurant such as Mercer Kitchen.

the food is just not that good any more ..
We used to love coming here. The pizza was pretty bad and the omelette was ok.
The tuna spring roll was not good at all

This was a great spot for a group dinner, but the menu was certainly overpriced, even for New York (given the fairly casual vibe of the place). Otherwise, we enjoyed the ambiance and food.

My one and only complaint would be the noise floor. It was very loud. Acoustic ceiling work would help immensely. Otherwise everything was on point

Overall I always love this place however for my mums 70th birthday the service wasn’t it’s usual best. They forgot two appetizers forgot drink orders and completely forgot to put in one of the guests entree order. Still a great time but the constant asking for things like forks for the oysters and spoons for the sauces to reminding drink orders and everyone being served their entree and one guest having to wait awhile for hers made for a far from perfect night.

Fantastic food and ambianace, but we had a 9:30pm reservation on Sunday night and by 10:30, the servers were collection all of the plates and setting off other tables and even took the candle off our table when we were mid-conversation. We get we were being rushed out.

Great food and services especially potion of shrimp salad was nice. Noise level was so high because music volume was almost like a dive bar kind and everyone had to speak so loudly. Good for people looking for great vibe.

It’s a nice place. Went with my husband for a date night. The menu is quite basic, the prices are reasonable for the food but the wine menu is very expensive. It can get loud. The tables are very close to each other. My husband had the salmon, I had the ricotta pizza. He said his fish was bland. My pizza was very good actually. This place is slightly above average.

First entree was bland. They replaced it, which was nice, but the servers were not coordinated. Waitress/waiter switched three times. Drinks were dropped off without any comment. It was an odd experience for a generally good spot.

Ridiculously overpriced. $11 for a tiny side of kale, $6 to add cheese to a burger and $10 for a bottle of water. Go elsewhere.
