Food was average but our wait person was excellent!! Loved our round booth for a party of 5. Cool vibe but not crowded probably due to the food. Be back for bar only.
Friendly staff, delicious cocktails and food, great value!
Slow, nonexistent server. Bland food. Do not recommend.
The smoked pork ribs were unbelievable. The drinks were okay but you could not go wrong with food
Delicious food, unique cocktails, great service. This is always one of my favorite go-to places for a good time.
Wonderful service and excellent food. Place is cozy and quiet for lunch. Definitely one of my best places in Downtown Crossing.
Excellent as usual
The best burger in the city! Drinks are delicious too!
The Merchant never fails! It's the perfect spot for work lunches, after-work drinks, or weekend brunches. One of the best spots in DTX!
Pre show dinner at Orpheum worked out well, but the food was not impressive, yet it was adequate. Great waiter, fine drink list and good vegetarian options but not the best execution.
First time diners at The Merchant and we were all very pleased. Pre-Nutcracker dinner for our family and everything was fantastic. Personable service and great food and a quality selection of wines and craft cocktais. We will be back for sure. Thank you!
This was a date night away from kids first time in a long time. The food, cocktails and service were great. We really enjoyed the night.
Wonderful service, super tasty food. We were about 30 min late for our reservation but we were still able to get in to a table quickly. Very pleasant experience all around.
the room was so very dark! had to take out my phone light to read the menu.
ordered the green salad with tofu on top. lettuce was soggy and salad was over salted... and tofu had zero taste. i realize that it's tofu, but come on.
others had the red curry and the piece of bok choy was so huge and tough that she couldnt even cut or eat it.
Absolutely fantastic food and ambiance! A must try if you are in the Boston area!
may I please have a copy of the receipt for office expense
Overall very good experience, although our waiter was a bit inattentive.
Our waiter was outstanding!
We arrived shortly after they had opened so the service was very good in the beginning however it slowed considerably as more people arrived. Our server was friendly and considerate however, like many restaurants these days, I believe that the slow service was a result of the restaurant being understaffed.
We had the fish and chips, burger, and steak frites which were all delicious. The calamari was also very good but small to share amongst five people.
Worth going back but expecting slower service like most restaurants currently.
Food was alright but kind of overpriced
My husband and I went for Thanksgiving and it was absolutely delicious! Tender meat, amazing drinks and such a beautiful restaurant.
My husband and I had Thanksgiving dinner at the Merchant. Dinner was excellent!
Very lovely TG dinner. The staff was very attentive and checked on us often. The food was yummy.
Nice inside. Service was OK, nothing great. Food was good, nothing great.
Was probably about 20% occupancy at 2pm but hostess wanted to seat us at a small two-top table while there were booths and 4 top tables widely available. When I requested a larger table it was like asking for a free meal. They had to consult with others to see if it was even allowed.
Might try again during normal hours but there are soo many places downtown that there’s not much time for more than first impressions.
One of the most enjoyable Thanksgiving we have ever had. Food, Service, and atmosphere were incredible! We were stuffed and didn't have to clean up.
This is going to be an annual tradition for us!
Had dinner with my wife before a show at the Orpheum. Great location. We were able to park for free and walk to the show after dinner. We had the fried peppers for a app that were nice and spicy with a crunch. We ate them all. Really good and a different twist for a app. I then got the Steak, my wife the burger. Both cooked to perfection and flavorful without being salty. I also had a yummy side salad. We each had 2 beers from the nice beer list. We used to go to Stoddards before shows but I think the Merchant will be our new go to. Thanks to Tom our excellent waiter and to the nice hostess who came to our table to have a conversation with us.
Great spot for a midweek dinner. I will definitely go back.
Good food, great service and a really nice atmosphere!
Had dinner at Merchant last night and it was delightful. We were a party of 7 and from the moment we arrived until we left, the service was fabulous! I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
It was SO great to be back at The Merchant before our show at the Opera House last night! Everything was perfect - food, drinks, service, and cleanliness. Can't wait to go back again.
Food was very tasteful and service was very fast!
Everything was fine.
Amazing service. Food is good bug not incredible.
Great ambiance, service, decor, & food! Fun & lively atmosphere! Would definitely dine here again!!
My wife’s fish and chips were fine but the ribs Inhad were some of the worst I’ve ever had. Apparently Boston is it a BBQ town. Very dry and the sauce was terribly salty. I didn’t finish them and our server must have known they were bad as she didn’t ask how things were. Lesson learned.
Very good service. Sat in a nice booth. Food was excellent, both the hamburger and the steak, as well as the vegetable side which was green beans and corn. Good selection of cocktails and wine. Would definitely go back.
Bartender was fabulous. Great drinks. Food not great - only enjoyed 1 of the 3 apps we ordered.
Great food and a nice time all together! Would love to dine again.
