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.View Private Dining Details

This is an excellent restaurant in an interesting part of NYC
Chicken coconut soup was fantastic!
Went there at 11:30 for Sunday brunch. We were seated right away. The service was not very attentive. They brought my husband's tea with no sweetener bowl, and when he asked for it, it never came. He wound up asking the table next to us if he could take a sugar packet from theirs. The food was delivered and the server did not stay to see if we needed anything else. I needed to ask for salt and pepper for my eggs, and waited while my eggs grew cold until it came. It should be on the table. My husband's Eggs Benedict was not very hot. The server never came back to ask if everything was okay with our meal. The seating area was pretty dark, but then we noticed that a worker was trying to fix the light that should have been on the wall next to us. It never worked while we were there. I would not let this experience stop me from returning. The Avocado Toast with smoked salmon, the Egg's Benedict, and the Smoked Salmon platter were all very good.
Went for a Saturday lunch on St Patrick’s Day. Made the reservation a week in advance. Had a cozy table for three where we could people watch. We were never rushed to leave so we lingered a bit. The food was delicious. We ate the Mercer burgers and the lamb sandwich. Yum. Would go here again next time we’re in SOHO.
Got our order wrong and took a very long time to rectify the situation. Took a very long time to bring out our coffees.
The food was incredible, but the staff was less than pleasant. Our waitress was not welcoming and did not smile at us at all, and barely even acknowledged our presence there. We were expecting much better service.
Poor service ruined the experience
The shrimp salad is outstanding
I was expecting great food in a nice place, however the food was just ok and the place was below expectation, table was located in a very dark and uncomfortable spot. In summary, not a value-for-money restaurant
The light near our table was broken. We were practically eating in the dark. We should have changed our seats. Food was good but nothing special.
A great night! Thank you!!
Das Essen kam so schnell, dass wir in einer Stunde fertig waren.
Very inexperienced bartender. Had to google a Bloody Mary recipe. Rude manger. Unprofessional. Unimpressed
I will never eat here again!!!! The service is horrible and management is non existent.
The food took forever to arrive and then it was cold.
Not coming back
Should be zero stars. Terrible service and mediocre food at expensive prices. How hard is it to make toast and bring it with the eggs, which were overcooked anyway. Way better places in the area. Won't return.
Very disappointing. At the outset it seemed fine- friendly staff and nice atmosphere. However both food and service were lacking: ‘baked’ olives would naturally be expected to be warm, yet were cool. Waiters attempted to serve entrees when appetizers had been ordered. One of the appetizers then took a lot longer than the rest to arrive. Once entrees were served, one of them was the wrong one. Drinks took time to come and were only served upon asking for them again. Servers seemed to be fumbling and dropping hints even away from our table. No apologies offered, waitress seemed at some point to realize things were not going well and stopped trying to be nice. This was a special occasion meal we’d looked forward to for months. What a disappointment. What’s happening to the place?
Arrived early on a Saturday and was seated promptly. My expectations were high since it was a JG restaurant. Unfortunately Mercer didn’t live up to expectations. Service was below average, with most of the food coming to the table at one time. Food was average, nothing special.
Terrific. Food, drinks ........ .. ......
The food was very good, however, the portions were on the light side and price was on the high side. We enjoyed the meal but not a good value.
I was disappointed with our brunch experience on March 3, 2018. The hostess tried to seat us at the worst tables in the house when we arrived. I had a kale salad appetizer and there were only about 5 tiny croutons. The waffle was small and thin, fell apart when you cut into it. My husband's burger was messy - way too much sauce. Fries were eh - average. The server was great though - attentive and nice. Drinks were good (bloody Mary and mimosa). I wouldn't go back.
Having been here 2 years ago, with horrendous service, but amazing food, I decided to try it again.
Upon arriving we were sat at a small bar table that was wobbly. I spoke the the maitre’d and he gladly moved us to a nicer table. After our waitress took our order, she disappeared, and it became a game of which busboy we could wave down, since our waitress seemed to have too many tables. Our water glasses were only filled upon by request, did not offer second rounds of drinks, and never came to check in on us during any of the meal. We were not given bread, and it took 20 minutes to get parmesan cheese for the pizza.
Mercer Kitchen, has consistently great food, a “hip” atmosphere, however it is still lacking in the service department. I unfortunately will probably not return due to the lack of service.
Good food, good vibe, service was attentive. Only downside was the downstairs area was very hot, borderline felt like eating in a sauna.
They have a gluten free menu if you ask which is helpful. Solid food in noisy but vibes atmosphere. Waiters seemed stretched but tried hard.
Great food, cute ambiance for a casual date or friends getting together. The hostess sat us in a rather uncomfortable round table in a corner that really didn't accommodate us well. We were seated elsewhere rather quickly and without problem. Waitstaff is really friendly as well.
My fiance and I ordered eggs benedict but the eggs were overdone. Also, the prices were too high for the mediocre quality and taste of the food. The server brought a complementary dessert to compensate for the overcooked eggs, but even this was not tasty. It was a relatively bland, tasteless chocolate molten center cake, with vanilla ice cream. The ice cream was also pretty tasteless. Overall, great atmosphere, great drinks, but the food is mediocre at best. I recommend avoiding this place for meals.
Outstanding food. Everything we had was amazing quality. Ambiance was very neat as well. 10/10 would recommend. Definitely want to go back for the chef's table.
Beautiful restaurant, good food... but service was so slow! We felt fogotten by our waiter.
Loved the room. Service was excellent. The food was interesting and delicious. Looking forward to returning. Memorable.
I love the mercer kitchen...never disappoints! the food is outstanding. the atmosphere is comfortable, fun, great vibe! always a great experience!
Great service, good food
The restaurant was very clean and nice. The food was very good
Need more vegetarian entree choices please !
While we enjoyed the food, I felt like we were treated as second class citizens. I informed the host that we were only going to be 3 instead of 4 people, so we were escorted to a low "cocktail" table near the bar. My husband complained that there was not enough room for 3 adults to eat, and so we were sent to another table which was also tight even though there were plenty of 4 tops nearby and which stayed open during our entire dinner. Even though it was obvious that we did not like being squeezed into this corner table, nobody seemed to care. I want to mention that we were not walk-ins, but had a prior reservation.
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.
They gave me two amazing dessert to compensate a wrong order
