The service was terrible. Should not have to ask for the rest of the order. Should not have to ask twice for a cup of coffee, or bread for the table. And it wasn’t even that busy!!!
Great for a quick lunch during work hours.
I've been to the Merchant several times and have never eaten something that wasn't good. That's quite a record!
Great lunch spot, but a weekend dinner there was disappointing.
It was an amazing experience. Prior to going there, I reached out about gluten free options. They promptly responded and even gave a few of their favorite gf options. We were running 10 min late due to traffic and I called to let them know and they let us know it wasnt a problem. Our meals were amazing and our waiter couldn't have been nicer. Overall a fantastic experience and I cannot wait to go back again!!
Food and drinks were good. Service for drinks was very slow. We did not get side plates until the apps already arrived. A lot of waiting. Would service didn't match the food or the prices.
Great Restaurant with variety of Food.
Limited brunch menu. The live music was really nice. Overall would rate as average. The jumbo shrimp cocktail was way overpriced for four shrimp.
Went for lunch at 1. It took a long time to order and two salads took 45 min to come out. Almost no checkin. Pretty silly. Definitely not good if you want to get out in under 90 minutes.
Really terrific. Food was excellent with a very nice presentation.
We went to the Merchange b/f a concert at the Orpheum. Short walk which was good. Food was fine (3 had cod, 1 salmon). Our server (Brandon?) was terrific and super fast. Mixed drinks were weak. Good value. Fine for a casual dinner, I'd say. Atmosphere was very noisy. I might go back again.
Excellent food and generous servings. The charcuterie board is a great starter and the pork ribs fell off the bones. Pair all that with your choice of beer from a list as long as your arm. Yup, that works.
The three of us sat in a booth near the back which was perfect to catch-up. Servings were ample, fresh and tasty. Server was friendly and efficient (didn’t catch her name!) We’ll return for another “nice” lunch!
Always great for lunch. Make a reservation though if you're eating close to noon.
I was sad to see the pesto chicken sandwich gone. The pear chicken sandwich is similar but not nearly as good.
A trendy restaurant with a good vibe. The food was delicious. We tried a few appetizers and small plates everything was good our favorites were the gnocchi and the tuna carpaccio. The cocktails were excellent as was the service. A great choice for a dinner out or a pre-theater snack.
Enjoyed our meal and service at this establishment. A great place to go if your in the area. The food was really good, particularly the Mahi Mahi tacos. The apps were so good my group opted for those instead of an entre. Strongly recommend this restaurant for its ambience, value and proximity to the key features of the city in this district - Shopping, Theater etc. Oh yeah, they validate at the 33 Arch St garage. Cant be beat!
The restaurant was loud and crowded. Could not carry on a good conversation!! Chicken was dry and tasteless.
Great for lunch
Great food and service. You cant go wrong for after work drinks either. Might not go there for romantic dinner though as it’s just too busy.
Very disappointing. We were a group of 5 and the quality of the food was poor. Really more lacking in taste. One of ordered scallops and the portion size was small (3 scallops) for $30. They were aware of this and when we complained they did provide 2 more but really should warn patrons as they’ve obviously heard complaints about this before. Many other good restaurants in Boston to choose from.
The food was very creative and delicious. It was pretty hard to make a decision because everything looked yummy. The cocktails were also very good!
Excellent service, great food,fun atmosphere, Will definitely go back again and again!
Probably one of the worst meals I have ever had. Everything was tasteless and watery — the artichokes, gnocchi, and chicken wings were inedible. The burger, whole cooked to perfection, was bland as well.
The Merchant never fails. Have been here for lunch many times but not dinner, and this was a Friday evening. The service was efficient and friendly. Salads and the Wild Mushroom Paparadelle where both well-executed. The Blueberry and Ginger Crumble dessert was really a cut-above and in unexpected presentation, more like a tart-compote but terrific. It's a lively place and very loud with the muzak in the background, be prepared.
My friend and I made a reservation for Friday lunch. This place is quite popular and a little bit crowded. When we arrived there, there were lots of people waiting at the reception place. We felt lucky to use OpenTable to reserve a table already. The food and service is very good, but the noisy level was beyond our expectation. It's a good place for a meal with friends, not for a business meal...
Great ambience. Good food. Low service. No straw on my drink. Teenager at the host stand.
Been here twice. First time was quite n nice. Second was ok.
Everything was delicious, the environment was quiet and modern.
Went before the Lion King and it was wonderful. Food and drinks were delicious and everything came out in a very timely manner. There was a jazz band playing which was a great and a lovely surprise.
Sea trout was excellent. Scallops were sparse but tasty.
Food and service were outstanding. We went before a show and the waiter applied a discount for attending pre theater!!! We will be back!
Excellent meal. Good food. Good service. Good drinks. Will definitely go back.
Service was awful from hosting to waitstaff. Table wasn't ready, waiter didn't greet us for 5+ minutes, one person's order was completely wrong and the whole table waited to eat while the kitchen re-made the order. No apology from management.
We enjoyed a nice Sunday brunch -- good service, great selection of entrees, and a solid beer list. The live jazz music was a nice bonus. Would definitely come back.
Vibe was terrific. A great place for a pint and nibbles or a light brunch.
Lovely spot for Sunday brunch before the ballet. Had a great meal. Service was outstanding. Jazz musician was a tad loud, but added to the overall atmosphere.
The best gnocchi I've ever had with creamy sauce and breadcrumbs - yum! The waitstaff was attentive and kept refilling our carafe of water, which I loved. Great spot for a date night or dinner before a show!
Always a great experience there. and the beer selection is the best around. Great for beer snobs like me!
Our waiter Tom was very attentive without being overpresent. Someone came to refill our waters! So nice in the new world of do it yourself service. Food was very delicious and filling! We were heading to a show and didn't have the ability to linger, but I genuinely wanted to take home the rest of my meal. Everything really was very enjoyable, the only possible obstacle to a perfect evening was the noise-level, its it's a big echoey room and it gets pretty loud. My husband and I just whispered to each other under the noise and enjoyed ourselves anyway!
Food and service excellent
