    Mike was an exceptional waiter! We had the Shrimp cocktail and the Heirloom tomato salad. Dinner we ordered veal, halibut and the lamb chop. All were prepared perfectly. Desert we had the key lime pie which was light and the crust was exceptional

    The Mercury lacks refinement in the kitchen and wait staff. The appetizer was brought out the same time as the salads, so no opportunity to enjoy the appetizer independent of the second course. Table was by the kitchen…this what happens when you are more concerned about maximizing revenue over customer experience. This was a birthday celebration for my wife, who had a gluten allergy. Instead of making an accommodation with a dessert substitute, a cake slice is brought out. Ridiculous. Way over priced for the quality of food and service associated. Drinks took for ever to make their way to the table. Won’t be back.

    While the ambiance and the service is phenomenal and they do have an extensive wine selection the food menu is somewhat limited. Our meal overall was fairly average and not anything extraordinary.

    Service was slow and seemed disconnected. Took a long time for our drinks and one of the dinner sides did not come to the table until we we’re almost done with dinner.

    Many things to love about this place! However, thought it was much to expensive! No way to justify $16 drinks. Probably will go again someday, but will be careful with ordering!

    Service was immediate then our waiter would disappear. It was just a bit disappointing. I had not been to The Mercury in a few years. We were looking forward to our reservation. We were not impressed. Expensive, and not really worth the price.

    Busy Saturday night crowd; noise level that made it hard to converse. Server was somewhat pushy and wanted to pick up plates sooner than necessary. Steak tartare was good. Souffle was undercooked inside. Expected better overall at The Mercury since previous experiences were much nicer.

    We got the crispy salmon I wouldn't say it was the greatest could have tasted better it was bedded on top of garnish which was good well cooked but the protein could have been better for the price. We also got Mac n cheese on the side the taste was bland it could have been more creamy and cheesy for sure for being freshly made the cheese was just hard overall I'm not sure about this place or if I would go again for the price paid we were left feeling unsatisfied the drinks were great and service was amazing (I think those two things were the highlight of the night) oh forgot about the dessert it was a chocolate soufflé and that warm and delicious definitely would recommend that.

    I went here for NYE with my husband and two other friends for dinner. The restaurant is sort of in a weird location and sits in the middle of a random low-end shopping center. The decor was pretty basic and could use a little something to make it more interesting or asthetically pleasing but the service was great and we were well tended to. Older crowd which was fine as we weren’t really looking to get rowdy that early in the night (7 pm). The food was pretty great: My waiter recommended the Cracklin chicken and it was perfectly cooked. My husband enjoyed his crispy duck and mashed potatoes. The brussels sprouts were pretty boring and flavorless and the half our group liked the crab dip while the other half thought it was just ok. Drinks were pricey and the bill between the four of us ended up being around $500. I probably wouldn’t go back just because there’s so many other restaurants I want to try it perfect but it would be a good place for someone looking for a quiet, elegant meal with great service.

    This experience was phenomenal! Taner our waiter was exquisite, he had recommendations since we were 1st time goers. The atmosphere was romantic and you’re able to hear the music among the chatter. He recommended a sweet wine for myself that I loved. I’m a picky wine person and this one nailed it on the head. I had the veal and my husband had the beef tournanedo and by far the best steak we had! Paired along with an old fashioned and a pomegranate martini 😘. We’d love to come back and try something else on the menu as it seems we can’t go wrong. Oh and one last thing the meringue cake topped with fresh fruit, superb! Don’t miss out on this one!

    We had the private room and it was set up beautifully. They were definitely on top of things ; we were treated royally, and our server was great. Overall, I don’t think it could’ve been better… Except for one thing that still puzzles me. Two of the six ladies ordered a dessert to share. When the extraordinarily nice server returned with their crêpe, he put another dessert on the table that we had not ordered and said “I found this in the kitchen.“ We assumed it was a special dessert as we were celebrating someone’s birthday, (but I’m not sure the restaurant knew we were celebrating a birthday, I was shocked to see that we were charged for that dessert and was going to mention that to the server and ask that it be removed from our bill One of the ladies did not want to make a scene and so she paid for the dessert. I don’t understand. I can’t imagine the server was trying to foist another desert on us. Were we accidentally charged?

    Too many tables were set up to accommodate more guests on Christmas Eve, so guests and servers could not walk between them. Otherwise, the service was lovely and the food was delicious.
