We ate lunch. Most of the group chose from the " Burger" menu which is quite complete. Most choices in $17 range including fries or (my favorite) skinny onion rings. Good value for good food. And we could visit easily as the noise level was nicely subdued.

We were seated in the private table in the back of the main section of the restaurant and were so pleased with our table! Loved the seclusion, as we were celebrating our Mom’s 81st birthday and our son’s White Coat ceremony! We had a wonderful evening at The Mercury and the food, ambiance and service could not have been better. We will be returning to celebrate there! Thank you!!!

I love the Mercury food but the wine list is terribly overpriced. I worked in the wine industry and understand how wine lists should be priced. The Mercury has quadrupled retail prices which is simply wrong. The standard industry norm is to double expensive wines and triple inexpensive wines. Stags Leap Artemis which is 45-50 retail was 174. Caymus Special selection was 370 which is 100 more than it should be. They should go to Al Biernat to look how to price wines. I will return and NOT order wines from this list..

As always it was a very nice experience. The food was amazing. We had the Tuna and Salmon dishes as our Entrees and the Tomato Mozzarella Cheese Salad. I guess the bread and pate always make it special. That brings us back every time. The restaurant is always beautiful.

Our lunch group of eight had a quiet table in the back where we could easily converse. The waitress was excellent and attentive. For example, she cleaned spilled coffee from a saucer to prevent a customer from drips!

The spicy tuna and yellowtail appetizers were as beautiful as they were delicious and main courses were excellent. But, it was the dessert that really stole the show. While no one in our group ordered the burger it also looked amazing!

I will definitely return when back in town!

We make it a point to visit The Mercury often and our last visit was just as good as it always is. We were seated promptly and provided with water and their excellent bread and Pate and soon after our waiter appeared with menus and took our drink orders. After receiving our drinks he explained the specials for the evening and gave us time to decide on our selections before returning to take our order. The pace of the entire meal was excellent. The food was all cooked as requested and tasted fantastic, the wine was very good also, and the atmosphere is very appealing. We will return soon.

Our server, Alicia was fantastically top notch. She was attentive when she needed to be. Drinks were ordered and delivered once we settled in. They were great and our server brought them to us when they were ready. Her timing was impeccable. Every course delivered with professionalism and with flair. The food was delicious as was also our appetizer. The halibut was surrounded by roasted vegetables with a delicious sauce. My companion had the schnitzel and it too was hot when served and delicious. Despite having multiple tables, Alicia handled it with aplomb
We had a wonderful meal at Mercury and with return in the near future.

One in our party ordered the Cobb salad and was not pleased as it was more like a finely chopped, pressed, Alvacado salad. However, the other two meals were fantastic.

On this particular night the restaurant was really crowded and noisy. It was so loud I could barely hear what people at my table were saying. I haven’t experienced the high noise level on other nights we dined here. Other than that, the meal and service were excellent.
