With the opening of Fruition Restaurant in 2007, Alex Seidel set out to create Denver’s first restaurant offering sophisticated comfort food. Holding fast to the vision of creating a learning environment for himself, his staff, and ultimately his guests, Alex realized there was more to cooking food than just assembling ingredients. His growing respect for and relationships with small farmers and foragers is what helped shape Alex’s next career move. In 2009, Alex purchased a small farm in Larkspur, Colorado, home now to Colorado’s first artisanal sheep dairy; Fruition Farms Dairy and Creamery. With these experiences in hand, all Alex needed was a platform to share these artisan products with the community. That is Mercantile dining & provision, our next venture and an outlet for the farm and our deep relationships with both local and international purveyors.

    Highly anticipated, hugely disappointed. Food was overcooked, portions tiny. Pasta bland. Overpriced. Unintelligible 15 page wine list thrown on the table, next to nothing less than $200, most over $400. At least give some guidance at those prices. Mandatory 20% tip plus 3% for historic district. And the restrooms are shared with the bus/train station. If you need to go when the Greyhound arrives, be prepared to line up down the hall (40 people M+F), looked like many “residents” of the bus terminal. Not what you’d expect at that price. And why is it so hard to get a reservation? The place was empty. I wonder why.

    While the food wasn’t “bad” it just wasn’t what once was. What happened to eclectic and exciting cuisine here? Even the provisions board had every day mortadella and pastrami, just 3 green beans and 3 pickles. The cheeses were good though. The pappardelle had what appeared to be ground duck, certainly not what you would expect for “confit of duck”, it also lacked seasoning even salt would have helped. Sorry but no compelling reason to head back here.

    Truly an amazing experience. The price was right for the exceptional quality. The staff made my birthday so special. I dined alone (as I like to travel solo at times) and they really brought out all the stops - from wishing me happy birthday when I came in for my reservation, to a candle in my desert and champagne on the house. If that weren’t enough, the packed macaroons for me to take home as a birthday present. I felt feeling so loved. Thank you!!

    Delicious food, tasty cocktails, good service, friendly people. Nice added touches. The chef came over briefly to introduce himself, welcomed me and thanked me for coming in. My cocktail was delicious and came with a large ice cube monogrammed with an “M” - nice touch. Love the attention to detail.

    I am sorry to submit such a poor review, but this is what actually happened: The night before our reservation, we stopped by and just wanted to have a glass of wine outside on their patio sofas. Which were unoccupied. The hostess informed us there was 35 - 45 minute wait (which we assumed were for dining tables, not patio sofas). We live next door to The Mercantile and come here all the time for breakfast, lunch, and the occasional dinner. In the past, we have gotten a glass of wine at the bar and gone outside to sit on the sofas. totally chill. so on this evening, we thought we could do the same. My friend and I sat on the sofas and our husbands went to the bar to order our drinks. The hostess came out and VERY rudely kicked us off of the sofas, saying there is a waiting list for these as well. So, we went back inside and STOOD at the bar drinking our wine. We were there about an hour and in that entire time, NO ONE occupied those sofas. My blood was boiling. To be treated like second class citizens by a rude young woman is unacceptable. She saw us standing at the bar and knew those sofas were unoccupied. If she were my employee, she would be fired for treating my client in such an ill mannered way. We promptly went home and cancelled our reservation for August 19, and had a fabulous dinner at another new restaurant in the neighborhood, Avelina. I know Alex Seidel would be appalled at the way we were treated--all of their staff has always been superb so this was a real shock. With all the new restaurants opening in our neighborhood, I doubt we will return to the Mercantile for dinner.

    We had the most wonderful dinner at The Mercantile for my birthday. They had a birthday card and served all of us a glass of sparkling wine. The service was some of the best we have had and the food was exceptional. The Arctic Char if they have it on the menu is a "must have". I am so glad we decided to come for this very special occasion. One of the best restaurants in Denver!

    My wife flew from Houston to Denver to celebrate our 10 wedding anniversary and we decided to eat at M & P while we were there. We actually went back the very next night and the next morning for breakfast. The staff was great and the food was fantastic. If you go don't leave without getting the risotto.

    This was the loudest restaurant I have ever been in, no atmosphere whatsoever for a very large price. The entree we got was more like an appetizer, was undercooked and actually made me sick later in the evening. Very poor. We will not return.

    I can not say enough good things about Mercantile! Everything in our meal was perfect! We shared a Market Provision Platter and a ricotta gnudi. Both were amazing. The entrees were wonderful but the key lime dessert topped off a perfect evening. The bar makes delicious cocktails and Patrick, the sommelier, picked perfect wine pairings for each dish. This is my favorite restaurant in Denver. The food is always delicious, the drinks are fabulous and the staff makes you want to return again and again.

    Everything was outstanding here! My husband and I dined here for our anniversary last night. We were greeted with a hand signed card and a complimentary glass of bubbly. The food was extremely fresh and well prepared. A true farm to table restaurant with the food locally sourced. The tomato salad and octopus appetizers were delicious as was the duck entrees and the pistachio olive oil cake for dessert.

    This was a return visit for a birthday celebration. As good as Mercantile was the first time - that's how bad it was the second time. We were extremely let down and disappointed. Not sure if I would be willing to give them another try! It's a very comfortable restaurant, but of what good if the food is bad???

There is a skill to attending to the customer efficiently without hovering. This staff has it working perfectly. This was our first time @ Merchantile. We will be back.

    The green pozole was delicious and surprisingly rich in flavor. The lobster tortellini was by far my favorite but the rigatoni was also tasty. If you want it was a meal though definitely double it. The pork chop was perfectly cooked as well as the vegetables but the sauce was a bit too salty. Service was fantastic. Our food and drinks were delivered timely. The server was knowledgeable, nice, cleared our dishes promptly after we were finished and kept our table very clean.
