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.

I always regret not ordering 2 shrimp salads. That is my favorite dish every time. Was great for Sunday brunch with my family.

Guess they're used to dealing with tourists. Oysters were crap and after complaining still weren't taken off the bill. Yuck.

The room was VERY hot.

The food was weirdly portioned- my friend ordered the avocado toast, expecting what she usually gets at other places (either two pieces of thin bread or one fluffy slice...she got one thin sliced in two.), and it was one small slice. She was starving the rest of the meal and ended up ordering more

We ate downstairs, where there is also a bar. This place and the people in it look just like they do in movies and TV shows set in NYC: the place has a cool, energetic vibe, and pretty much everyone was good looking. The food is also very good, the wine list and cocktails were excellent, and, surprisingly, the prices were very reasonable. A great place for a date or before a night out with friends.

They lost our credit card. So I will never be returning. The service was extremely poor. We asked for several things many times and never got it. For the price we paid not worth it. Especially that they LOST our credit card . We now have to go through the hassle and calling our bank, being without a credit card for a week. The manager was there but she really didn't get it. Don't care how sorry you are, your service is poor and now we have to go through all the headache.

The decor is very nice, kind modern and vintage reformulated old space. The food is very good, not as unusual 'cause I live in Barcelona, where meditarrenean food is everyday kind. The service very good.

I’m a 6’3” 230lbs man. They sat us at a tiny table that seats 2, but there were 3 of us. We had a reservation and there were MANY open tables that were regular size. Not sure what was going on. As someone in the industry, I was questioning some of what was going on.

I have always loved Mercer Kitchen, but our experience Sunday was very disappointing. The service was inadequate... like they had never worked before. Took forever to get something as simple as coffee and noone ever came back to ask if we wanted a refill.
The food was only mediocre also, with the mac and cheese actually being unedible because it was so oily and hard. So disappointed because I always loved going there.

While I waited at the bar for the rest of my party, I was delighted by the excellent service. Jonny was wonderful. The rest of the dinner was excellent. The sea bass carpaccio is an absolute must. That was my second time there in a month or so and will be back for sure!

Apps and drinks were outstanding. Took a long time for our mains to come and when they did, they we're slightly overcooked. But the dessert course absolutely redeemed the meal. I would go back. Maybe not on a busy Friday night.

Service was very disappointing- the food is just okay. If you are in the area, skip it and go to the many other restaurants that you don't have a revolving door of servers that you have to flag down for water.

All the vegetarian appetizers, salads and sides that we ordered was great except. The main course offered 2 vegetarian options, fettuccini and a vegan burger (we did not order the burger). The fettuccini was really bad. Undercooked to a point that it stuck to each other and the sauce did not get mixed. They took it back and didn't charge us. It would be great if added one more vegetation main course.

Poor experience
Have eaten many times this was not the usual and it’s too bad
All
Our drinks were almost non alcoholic there was little too no alcohol in any of the drinks we ordered
Waitstaff was rushing us from the moment we sat down
Dinner was no longer than 45 min
Took 3 different try’s until seating people were even willing too place is at a real table and we were told that was because they did not want us to feel rushed !!!
And we were rushed out with in 45 min
Actually any fast food dinner may have need about the same time
All for the price of a jean George meal

Never brought us the appetizer we ordered well in advance of Ordering our entrees. When they brought our entrees, we asked where the appetizer we ordered was and the server took the entrees away. We had to flag down another server to find out about the appetizer who said it would be right out. We had ordered the artichoke and it was extremely disappointing. When the The lady cleared the appetizer plates she also took most of the other plates including the bread and olive oil off the table that we hadn’t had a chance to touch. By then my drink had been empty for awhile and no one asked if I needed another for close to an additional 15 minutes. Then finally our entrees came back out and my friend ordered an omelette and it came with five tiny chunks of potatoes. We had to flag another server to ask him if it was right and at first he seemed to want to argue with us but then just took it back. The manager came back with the plates and this time it had a lot more potatoes but we couldn’t understand what he said. Every other table was asked if they wanted dessert but us. We had to ask several times for the bill as well. I’ve had good experiences at this place in the past but I doubt I’d come back. I felt throughout that they wrote us off and didn’t care whatsoever if we had a good experience.
