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.

Private Dining

Jean-Georges brings a chic vibe to Soho at Mercer Kitchen, with a bright, airy café upstairs and a spacious restaurant on the lower level. The ambiance of the restaurant is timelessly stylish, and sexy, with exposed brick walls. The American Provencal menu features fresh and seasonal ingredients.

Unfortunately the scallops were very bland and the lentils were also underseasoned and undercooked. Adding more seasoning could have transformed this dish.

Outstanding service and food quality. Beautiful space. Great people watching. Loved every minute of it. The hostess that took the reservation was superb.

While the food was good, the service was incredibly poor. My water glass was empty for a very long time and it took over 10 minutes for our entree plates to be cleared. There were similar delays with dessert. It seemed like the restaurant was short-staffed. Also, for anyone with a nut allergy, please note that the veal entree had walnuts (no mention of that on the menu or by the server)

The ambience is nice for a Sunday brunch but the food is just mediocre. The location is super convenient so I will likely go back again.

We don’t get to go out much so we were really looking forward to this restaurant which came highly recommended. I’m not sure if our server, who said his name was Marshall after being asked, was in a bad mood or having a bad night, but he acted annoyed and was rude from the start. We ordered a bunch of appetizers including the artichoke which a few of us were thrilled to see on the menu. Unfortunately, it came to the table very undercooked. We had to send it back, which I hate to do, but it was very hard to eat. When we explained this to Marshall, he didn’t say anything & just took it away. A little while later, someone else brought over another artichoke, but it was cooked the same way and we couldn’t eat that one either. The other food we ordered was delicious-the carpaccio especially. We ordered a bunch of different entrees since there were 6 of us and we wanted to try different things. We ordered a couple of ribeyes, and asked if we could have it sliced so we could all try it along with some other food we had ordered. Marshall ignored what we asked after we explained twice what we wanted, and instead only 4 of us got steak that was cut up into fourths. There were 6 of us, so I’m not sure why he did that but he only gave 4 of us steak knives, and we had to ask multiple times for the rest of us which someone else brought over after we asked them. We asked for them to be cooked medium rare, and they came out very rare but some of us ate them anyway because we had already had such a bad experience and didn’t want to wait any longer since we already had the other food. I feel extremely disappointed because most of the food we had was very good and I loved the atmosphere, but the service just ruined it for us. Needless to say, none of us will be back again.

Our food was good but the waiter literally never came back to ask if we would like another drink over the course of 2.5 hours. He also spilled water on the table. I wouldn’t go again considering all the options in the area.

Always a favorite lunch spot for our family, 10 years running. Food is excellent.
Hostess crew was dismal this visit.
Utterly unprofessional and immature.
Did not seem to care at all that we sat down 35 minutes after our reservation time.
Too cool for school.

Arif (sorry if I misspelled it). He was great and the sweetest. The food was great as always and the hospitality was unmatched.

We will visit again.

The meal was truly perfection. Amazing flavor profiles and portions were beautifully presented . They had some wonderful sake too. I found the hostess to be a bit sour, but not sour enough to taint the truly wonderful meal.
