The price of the food is too expensive. Portions are also too small, menu is very limited more entrees is better

The food was good. I really enjoyed the flank steak. The portions were a bit small but the idea is to share. There were four of us and we ordered 5 dishes and we were still hungry. So probably recommend ordering dishes 1.5 to 2x's the number of people in the group to ensure there is enough. It was loud but we could still hear each other and have a conversation which is unlike a lot of newer places so all good.

The food and the service were amazing! It was very loud, between the music and other customers I had trouble talking with and hearing the others in my group. This issue would not deter me from going back though.

The food was spectacular. Our server was very attentive and made great recommendations on food and drinks.
Food was quick to be served but we never felt rushed to eat and go.

Will be going back!

Great place for dinner. Loved the food and service was good. Very open atmosphere and was very busy before the concert so noise level pretty high. Great location right at the Alt Hotel and across the street from the MTS. Will definitely return.

The food was delicious and the service excellent. It's a little loud and the benches (at least the one I was on) need re-stuffing. I would recommend a chair.

It was just before a Jets game, so it was loud and crowded. But the food was excellent, the service was great and sitting at the counter in front of the kitchen was entertaining.

Great food as usual! Noise level is very loud. That’s my only complaint. They seem to pack in as many people as they can.

Everything was great until we asked the bartender for cream and sugar instead of our waitress who we couldn’t find....she came bank and smiled at us, being very rude and condescending

The food tasted great! I found the restaurant very loud. The cost of alcohol was extremely expensive and the portions for the price were on the small side. tacos which was a shared dish, had 3 for 2 people. Had to add a forth one for $5. Great food - not sure if $133 for 2 people is a good value. Not a lot of Gluten Free options.

Food was amazing as usual. Had the Dan Dan noodles and they subbed chicken for the pork on request and it was amazing. Also had the Mexican corn and tempura veggie apps and they were fantastic. I have eaten here multiple times and have always been pleased. Only negative is the noise level which forces you to almost have to shout to hear one another when they are at capacity so for some that may be a huge deterrent. For me the phenomenal food makes up for the noise issues...... I’ll continue to be a regular.

Loved our dinner at The Merchant Kitchen. Food was outstanding, cocktails (although pricey, and slow to arrive) were delicious. Service was great, and the atmosphere is fantastic. A great spot for an evening out with friends.

I’ve been to merchant a handful of times but brought 3 girls who had never tried it - the next day we were all salivating for the Dan Dan noodles and KFC Chicken again ... we can’t wait to come back!
