About Mercer Kitchen

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.

Extremely slow service. So slow in fact that two desserts were brought to the table to make up for the fact that it took over 20 minutes to receive our drinks. My husband asked to have his salmon “fully cooked”. It came raw. Practically sushi grade. We’ve been here before. And.....never again.

I cannot recommend this restaurant. We went there for breakfast. The service was very bad, slow and unfriendly, and the food is at most average quality for high prices (i.e. 3 slices of regular smoked salmon for $25). On our table was an insect (spider!!!) the staff recognized but didn't do anything about it. In the reservation I asked for a nice quiet table however we were seated in the middle of the room next to the place where all the waiters were standing around. We would not come here again!

This is an amazing place to go for a drink, appetizers or dinner. The service was fantastic. We were very well cared for and in want of nothing. The food was amazing. Their Barry Wine Sushi Tuna pizza was delicious and perfectly spiced. The salmon sushi over cubes of fried rice, delighted our mouths with not only taste, but a mix of textures as well. I loved the ambiance as well.

Terrible! It was my husband’s birthday and he wanted to go his his favorite place mercer kitchen. Our reservation through open table was for two but then our son decided to join us, being a major birthday, and they refused to accommodate us!! We wound up just sitting at home doing nothing! The manager Micheal was like a robot with no concern that we are regular customers and it is a very
special evening — being my husband’s birthday! I’ve never seen such unaccomodating hostess and manager! They simply said NO! Your reservation is for 2 not three! Despite our anger and disappointment, we are scheduled to go there wed evening (for 4) to celebrate his birthday 5 days later. I pleaded with him about going somewhere else, however my husband still feels loyal to mercer kitchen and would like to give it another chance. All I can say, is try to be more accommodating and understanding especially towards your long time regular customers. They ruined his birthday, sadly.

Late lunch at Mercer Kitchen did not disappoint! When it became evident that our table wouldn't be ready for a bit, the hostesses went above and beyond to accommodate our group including two amazing appetizers that were on our table when we were seated. We could not say enough about how incredible this dining experience was from start to finish! We will all be back.

Location location location. That is pretty much all this place has going for it and also their burgers are delicious. Our waiter was awful, no one refilled our water glasses, checked on our alcoholic beverages for a refill and we were pretty much ignored the entire time we were there. When we first got there the place was very loud and that normally would not be a reason for me to knock off stars but I think because of horrible service that just ruined my mood. I would not recommend this restaurant unless you couldn't find a table somewhere else. The food was very good.

I had a fantastic experience at Mercer Kitchen on my evening out. It was super sleek and the staff was accommodating yet reserved and professional. I could tell whoever was in charge that night had things under-wraps. the staff seemed to be at attention and there for my every need before I had to ask. My experience was seamless, fun and professional. I would definitely recommend Mercer Kitchen and will be back for future good times soon.

I had breakfast there three days ago and I can't get over my first impressions. Morning staff was remarkably rude and indifferent, I couldn't believe it. Our server was nice, but every other person seemed as though they had no idea what was going on. I was directed to go downstairs when I walked in, where crew were obviously setting up and so I asked two different people where I should go and they were like, "No ones here, I don't know what to tell you." What? Just tell me service downstairs hasn't started and you're only using the upstairs dining room. It wasn't apparent because both rooms were empty. I'm not an aggressive bruncher or a Yelper, I'm a former maitre'd and current hotel manager with a reservation just asking normal questions. Also, this isn't a roadside diner. For someone who happily paid $50 for breakfast, I'm sure you can try and think of a normal, useful response.

Lamb and sprouts were cooked improperly (undercooked), although the staff did try to make up for it by buying us dessert. Although we had reservations, we ended up being seated in the bar/lounge area, which was uncomfortable to have a full meal in.

Not worth the experience for the price.
