The Merchant Kitchen
- Yuca fries weren’t crispy — were either not fried for long enough or weren’t fried at the right temp
- Tempura was below average, veggies weren’t chosen and prepared properly
- Dan Dan Noodles were super spicy and were undercooked. The noodles were hard and weren’t boiled properly.
Service was good.
Excellent before the jets game. Friendly service and great food....thanks!!
Always great food, and such an interesting variety of options. And our service was excellent, as expected. This is another great little restaurant that's been really elevating Winnipeg's dining out scene.
Delicious food top to bottom. Bring back the mahi mahi tacos please!
Great menu, Delicious food, fun atmosphere especially before a Jets game!
The kitchen was quick with our food. Tasty dishes.
Our server’s name is Mikaela. She was very good including being knowledgeable about the menu and quick with our drink orders
The merchant kitchen is by far our favorite restaurant. Every dish is absolutely delicious, the unexpected flavour combinations in everything they bring you is amazing. We let the server pick our plates and have never been disappointed. I highly recommend this restaurant.
I have been to this restaurant several times, and consider it to be a favourite... however, this particular visit was a little disappointing for me. I can not eat spicy food so I always order the Korean chicken. This time it was super spicy. I also ordered the roasted corn, and although it was delicious, it was lukewarm. The cocktail I ordered was the Capel Pesco, and as usual it was fantastic, but priced at $12.00, I could only have one! I passed on dessert, as none of the options appealed to me. Will I go back? Probably!
Waiter asked to clear up bill with our wine glasses half full and still was waiting for our second appetizer. Kinda strange
Excellent food great service rebooked our next visit already.
Our group really enjoyed themselves. The family-style dining experience allowed us to enjoy a variety of dishes. Everything was delicious, the service was prompt and we never had an empty glass. We will note that this is not a quiet restaurant, so do not go in expecting something like that. We had a great time and will be back again with a larger group.
Came in from Brandon to have dinner with friends and go to the jets game, great food! Will be back
We were there for our company Christmas party. We were a party of 12. This is the second year in a row we go there for this event the food and service are fantastic in the atmosphere is amazing. We were fortunate enough to book on a day where we were the only party there and as we are so loud that worked well for us. Recommend the chicken one of the best in the city.
I found the tables almost too wide - hard to hear people directly across from me. Aside from that, amazing lunch, delicious food, great value!
So good! Everything was amazing!
Fantastic experience. Great service on a busy night (prior to an NHL game one block away), excellent food. Really loud environment, but to be expected- it was a busy night. Will go again!
Good food timely service prior to a hockey game. Always satisfied. Location is perfect.
Our Server was very helpful and pleasant. She did a great job assisting us with dish selection, food was excellent.
My only comment would be that the space is a little bit noisy, not that I don't like a energetic space but it could use some sound dampening
Great meal with a larger group. Korea fried chicken, friend rice, street corn, Tuna and superfood salad were outstanding.
We went for lunch and everyone in our group loved what they had. Will definitely be coming back.
Good, I just found too expensive and too much from overall value perspective but nice otherwise.
We had out of town guests join us prior to the Jets' game. The food was amazing, fresh and plated beautifully. Service was attentive and we had a leisurely meal and were on time for the game!
Good food and drinks. Service was excellent. A lot of background noise but was expected for the event
The Dan Dan Noodles were waaaay too salty.
Piri Piri wings were good. The superfood salad was ok, too much lime. The pavlova tasted like spearmint gum, not crisp, underwhelming, considering the description.
Noisy!! Get some absorbing sound panels.
The food was excellent! Everything we ordered was delicious! The restaurant is noisy, so sometimes it can be hard to hear the people you are dining with. The food is so good though, that I would reccommend going anyways!
Very nice! The food is delicious, service was great. We sat by the window and it was a bit chilly otherwise, a very wonderful dining experience.
Amazing food and great service as always.
The fried rice was awesome. The steak was as well. Great to share.
Repeat visit. Very good experience. Will continue to frequent. Cheers
Hi Trevis! Thank you so much for joining us and sharing your experience, we will share this with the team! We hope to see you in again very soon, MK
Meh ... over priced, very small portions (the shrimp tacos are not a meal ... an appetizer for one only). Guacamole is crappy ... not made from fresh avocados (travesty) and the cocktails while interesting and yummy are $18 (stupid). So give it a miss.
The food was delicious and served out fast. We prefer the front room over the back. It was quite loud. But wait staff was great.
There is no better way to describe my experience at Merchant Kitchen than "outstanding." I was there to celebrate my birthday, and I'm so happy I chose to celebrate there. Our server was amazing; she went above and beyond to make sure we were having a good time – probably some of the best service I've experienced in a long time. Our water glasses were never empty, food came out quick, and we always had a drink in hand. I have a friend with dietary restrictions, and the staff created a dish specifically for her so that she could eat with the rest of us. 10/10 experience! We will definitely be back soon!
Most is usually good at Merchant Kitchen: food is good, service is good, prices a little steep (although not outrageously so) but the real drag is how poor the acoustics are in the restaurant.....it is soooo noisy/loud in there it's hard to hear. And
Food, atmosphere and service were all outstanding, as usual!
We sat at the bar and Julia was excellent. She acknowledged me immediately and I had a glass of wine within minutes. Food was great. Only small complaint is the noise level.
Our experience at Merchant Kitchen was outstanding. We are 2 senior couples who will definitely return. The food was delicious and unique. Our server couldn’t have been more helpful and answered all our questions and offered suggestions. She was right on. Our food was delicious. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Our server was Wendy and she helped make the experience so great. Even the GM Josh visited our table and added to our knowledge of the menu. Love this place.
Very nice place, excellent food and service. Tables are a bit to crowded for my taste.
Delicious food. Restaurant was moderately busy/ Service was slow when it came to getting the packing the food/getting the bill. Overall a good experience.
