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.

Our service was horrible. Very slow. Waiter would walk around out table serval times w/o attending to us. Took him 20 minutes to even bring water or Menus. I come to Mercer kitchen a lot and entertain clients there so i was very disappointed

Our waiter was outstanding, never hovered or made us feel rushed. The food was good, not great, but we were there for the conversation and atmosphere, which can’t be beat!

Perfect table for friends having long catch up conversation. Kind staff made us welcome for as long as we wanted. The seafood tower was excellent. We each got delicious crabmeat and also shrimp dishes. Everything was so tasty. Of course we had to order their delicious fries. Simple shared berries ended our perfect get to get her dinner.

A really nice looking restaurant with good food but inadequate prizes for drinks (antialcoholic beer/cafe americano/cappucino. Over all not a fair value for the prizes.

Our waiter was fabulous but unfortunately we were served our foods at different times. I ordered a cold dish which took longer than the hot food that my guest ordered. The people next to me received their hot food before I

Food was good , ambience was good but the Service was ok. Tough to get the wait staffs attention. Oh and wine glasses .. why are they served in such a small glass? Not a proper way to treat nice wines. Overall good not great.

MK used to be good. Now, there are way way better options in the neighborhood. The salmon was bland, the garnish on the raw tuna pizza made it difficult to navigate and the non alcoholic fruit punch had a super weird after taste. Our server was obnoxiously telling a story and talking to a trainee about three feet from us the entire time we ate. Go somewhere else, Gato on Lafayette or anything on Bond St.

Very disappointing food. Heavy handed chef. Large portions but didn’t really even want to eat them! Very fried. Service was good but doesn’t make up for expensive bad food.

We could not see what was on your plates due to the minimal lighting. We had to read the menu with the help of the flashlight of our mobile phones. I had the expensive JOYCE FARMS PRIME GRASS FED RIBEYE, but that was not juicy for a raw medium steak and the Crisp Fingerling Potatoes, Chickpeas, Sage, Spicy Roasted Garlic Aioli where all oily sides.

We had a family birthday party here. The food was great, the atmosphere was great, but the waitstaff - not so great. We had to work at getting the waitstaff’s attention, at one point it looked like our waiter was having a coffee knot he in the corner and I had to get the busboy to get our waiter to come over. Btw the bus boys were great - maybe they should be your waitstaff.

We went to Mercer Kitchen for brunch and I would love to give it five stars because the food was really great, but the service was so bad, I can’t even recommend the restaurant at all. We live in NYC and are used to somewhat spotty service at times, especially when a restaurant is busy. But Mercer Kitchen was relatively quiet when we were there, and we still had to flag down the wait staff and ask for items multiple times. Everything from sweetener for the iced tea to salt and pepper to utensils to eat our entrees with took two to three requests from multiple servers to arrive at our table (and the items were nothing that they could blame the kitchen on). As we were finishing our entrees, my husband asked for an additional side of sautéed Kale. It was about as simple a dish as you could get, yet we waited half an hour and then finally gave up. The one thing that came quickly when we asked for it was the bill.

Usually the food is great. This was brunch and it was mediocre at best. The service was REALLY bad this time. Order was wrong, coffee came after food was finished, waited almost 15 minutes for bill. The only redeeming thing is that waitress actually apologized at the end which went a long way in my mind. Usually this place is great.

Brunch food is incredibly overpriced and of a very low quality. My omelette was small, mediocre and came with only 8 over cooked, overseasoned potatoes. Good ambiance is not enough to make up for the abysmal brunch food here. French toast meal is only one piece of French toast! The manager here should be ashamed. Don’t waste your time or money.

The service at this restaurant is consistently poor, elitist, and not inclusive. The staff always seems to be waiting for someone brighter and shinier to show up, and forgetting they have other paying customers in their establishment. The possibilities are endless for this restaurant, but not until there is a change in culture. I will not be coming back in the near future.

Liked the food, but felt very rushed by servers to order. One meal came out undercooked and took 15 min to return.
Cocktail and winelist were minimal.
Food was very good.
The entire restaurant could use an upgrade. Decor very dark and outdated.

Service was the worst. No follow up, asked for coffee, never came. Had to get up to ask for salt and pepper for eggs. Will never return. Too many other wonderful options in the area. THE. WORST. I’d suggested this restaurant for brunch and it was an embarrassment.
