We had a wonderful evening. We were there on a week night due to timing. Everyone enjoyed their meals thoroughly.
I had the only vegan option (which is not on the online menu) and it was definitely really tasty and interesting and completely out of my wheelhouse. I would go back for this again.
We were well served but not over bothered. We were not rushed out nor were we made to feel that they wanted to close since it was not overly busy. They are packed on the wkds. and you cannot get in without a reservation.
Will come again.
Excellent!. First time there and will definately return.
Great specialty drinks
We go to the Mercer before theater and as always the food is prepared uniquely and very tasty. Service is excellent. A great place to get fantastic yet differently prepared food.
Dinner was great, the Mercer Burger is probably the best burger in the city. We had a great bottle of wine as well. The menu is a bit limited but everything we had was excellent. Service was good, atmosphere was pleasant and classy. Great choice for date night.
It wad nice
This was our second visit. The first, in December was quite incredible. This second time the food left a lot to be desired. Too many items were off the menu. I would not even recommend the little overpriced so-called burger!
Excellent food and service. Nice atmosphere. My kids thought the Mercer Burger is the best they ever had.
A real gem in OTR. I can not recommend this place enough. Fantastic dining experience.
Outstanding service with minimal noise
We had a wonderful first meal at the Mercer. The service was outstanding.
Great food and a super server. The decor is not as “elegant” as the food but still very warm and comfortable.
Mercer OTR was really excellent! Starting with hand-crafted cocktails, to bruschetta, pasta, risotto (perfectly prepared), and ending with original desserts, the chef's creations, shined! The location is close to music hall, and this is perfect for dinner before an event.
The restaurant itself was very nice with great lighting but I was unimpressed by the mixed drinks, the food, and mainly the service. The bartender was kind and attentive but when we were brought to our table we saw our sever maybe twice. The food wasn’t the best, we wanted dessert but got sick of waiting on our server, paid, and went somewhere else. The Mercer was on our list of neat OTR places to check out, I’m glad we tried something new but this restaurant will not remain on our list of places to revisit.
Got the prix fixe. Terrific meal, and half price wine on Fridays!
Staff was very accommodating...solidly good food and nice atmosphere. I appreciated that the portions were just right.
Delicious Valentine’s Day menu with relaxed four courses reminded us of dining in Europe. Great for our special date nite
Valentine’s Day prefix - food was delicious. A little pricey given the small portions.
Great meal prior to Ballet on a Sunday night.
The specials were excellent!!
Really enjoyed dinner before the show at ETC. Absolutely LOVED the chicken stew!!!! Also loved the brussel sprout salad, the bread plate and the vodka lemon cocktail. The service was outstanding. Can't wait to come back.....gotta have more chicken stew. Thanks!
The risotto had a bitter note in it...not sure, but it seemed almost like the Pork Belly was the culprit.
Everything else was very good and the service was excellent.
Filet was one of the best I have ever had. I got the key lime pie dessert and is was mediocre but everything else was fantastic.
Mercer is a great restaurant. The servers are terrific. The hostess seated us promptly. The food was magnificent. This was the second time that I have dined there and I highly recommend Mercer.
Our waiter had great suggestions for us while at dinner. All of the food came out in a very timely manner - felt unrushed and gave us plenty of time to chat. We were there for a birthday and had a great time (although they didn’t have candles or anything like that). A nice fancier restaurant in OTR.
Great restaurant! Leanne, our waitress, was exceptional! The food was quick and delicious. You must order the bread.
Super Bowl Brunch was an amazing way to kick off the day. Great Bloody Mary’s to relax & enjoy along with sweet and savory classic brunch dishes with an edgy twist.
Great food As usual. Fast friendly service except for one male bartender who was more interested in talking to his Friend/customer then asking us what we would like to drink even though we sat down first.
Our server Jeremy more then made up for that though. The bruschettas are as tasty as they come and you cannot beat the risotto.
The food is absolutely phenomenal - and very well priced. Try the prixe fix menu and sample 2 dishes. You won't be disappointed!
I visit this restaurant monthly, consistently great all around
Continues to be of the great upscale food values in the city. They have a new chef, with whom our first experience was excellent. He has a difficult act to follow. Our service was outstanding form Chad, LeeAnn and the rest of the support staff. Lots of great seating space for either quiet conversation or people watching along the active Vine Street OTR scene.
This is the second time our group has eaten at Mercer. We had the same server both times (Leann) and she is excellent. We each chose to eat the 3 course Prix Fixe meal - a good value. It is so much food that I asked her to box up my 3rd course after just a bite. I can't wait to go back for more of the tagliatelle - the pork roast is also outstanding. The only thing I would change is that they did nothing to acknowledge my friends birthday - it was noted in the reservation and we mentioned it to the server. No big deal - but it would have been nice.
We really enjoyed ourselves! Getting our entrees took awhile but, other than that, service was good and we all loved our meals. We had 5:00 reservations as we were going to the 7:00 show at the Ensemble Theatre and the timing worked out well. Would definitely go back!
OTR Jewel. Unique and delicious food, excellent people watching. Try the fried artichokes and risotto, and experience some imaginative cocktails.
Excellent food, though a bit pricey. The prix fixe menu was a great deal with some great options. The ambiance is nice, but a bit noisy. Lots of tables though, and has a more semi-casual bar area and a slightly nicer dining area. Service was good, and especially prompt, which is great if you're headed to a show.
Our waitress and bartender were amazing. Food very yummy. Would definitely come back and have the artichokes, chicken stew and mixed salad again.
We enjoyed the 3 course meal priced at 40 dollars each
It was wonderful. Duck cassoulet was tasty and the meat tender
Both the bolognese and tagliatelle were excellent.
The cocktails well done
Service was great
A perfect choice for a pre concert on a sunday evening
Always an experience that exceeds expectations. Last night our waiter made a special effort to ensure my Branzino entree had the best wine pairing.
First time at Mercer. Great experience! Matthew, our server made it a lot of fun. Knowledgeable so he made really good suggestions on menu. Food was top notch and we loved the booths!
We always have an amazing meal at Mercer. The food is excellent and the service is great.
This was our place to celebrate New Years and it did not disappoint. The menu was fixed and that was great. We tried different apps and dinners and were so impressed with what each of us got. We both wish the first couple courses were larger then the chef brought out the 3rd and it made sense. We left there feeling perfect. Our server was great and interactive.
Excellent New Year’s Eve venue. Prefix menu was great.
