yummy and nice service
Great atmosphere, tasty food and awesome service. I can see why there were so many positive reviews for Mercer. I highly recommend and would go back.
The noise is a real problem. The food, the service were amazing. Definatly we recomend this restaurant !
Been here quite a few times. We always enjoy sitting upstairs—downstairs too loud, dark and sceney. This time had a snarky and inattentive server who kind of ruined the experience. Among other small slights, she failed to bring us bread even after we asked for it. One of us was really very hungry. I guess I will be back but it leaves a bad taste. Food decent except for the fries, which were pretty cold. Always sad when pea soup is not on the menu — but I understand it’s winter.
Great time great people
I’ve been wanting to try this restaurant since I moved to NYC 4 years ago. I finally got around to going with a group of four friends and I was incredibly disappointed. Outside of the ambiance, Mercer Kitchen has nothing to offer. The food is mediocre at best, the service was nonexistent and the value is poor. I recommend going to any of the other hotspots in the area - Rubirosa, Pasquale Jones, Gato, etc.
Hostess want very accommodating at the beginning of our reservation. Service took a little long at the beginning. Didn’t place drink order.
Overall really nice, but waitress wasn’t the most attentive. I can understand from being in the service industry... overall was really fun!
Fantastic food, good value... great service. Really love the little touch of the manager walking around filling coffees ( we went for brunch) ... he also checked on the table at least three times and brought us some fresh pepper and brought me some more bread I requested.!!!
Good on you guys, keep the good work up👍
Went for lunch and got there right at 12pm so it was not very crowded. As the lunch went on the place filled up with many large groups and smaller groups and the noise level was never an issue. There were two of us and we both had the Mercer Burger and we shared an order of Brussels sprouts. The delicious food is the reason I am writing this review. I cannot stop thinking about that burger. The combination of ingredients all make it probably the best I've ever had. I don't usually eat fries but they were just perfect. The Brussels sprouts were pretty good too.
The service was outstanding!
Always a pleasurable experience.
Un tip. Si pides un trago en la barra es dos veces más grande que si lo pides en la mesa. Y en la mesa encima sale un par de dólares más caro. La comida es buena. El ambiente tambien.
Horrible food everything tasted horrible. Had to send back my daughters chicken fingers 2 times because it was salty!
I have been going to Mercer Kitchen for years and it is still AMAZING!! Love it there so much..
My boyfriend and I had an amazing time at Mercer Kitchen! Everyone we encountered on staff was very friendly and made us feel welcomed! Food was amazing! All in all, a birthday well spent!
Everything was amazing! The food was incredible! Overall 10!
I really dislike writing negative reviews but this experience was terrible. First, we sat for nearly 15 minutes before getting water or even a greeting hello. After finally getting to place an order with no apology for the delay, our food took a very long time to arrive. When we were served food, only 1/2 our meals arrived and we all sat and watched our food get cold while waiting for the rest to arrive. We were told there was a kitchen error and it would arrive shortly, but nothing was offered while waiting. I had to stop someone and ask if we could at least get more water while we waited. The rest of the food finally arrived. Mind you, it wasn’t complicated it was pasta. A vague apology was offered for the mishap. A very disappointing experience. I brought my visiting family here and had raved to them about it. Totally embarrassing.
PS I used to wait tables and understand sometimes things happen, but this was just a poor experience from start to finish.
Seating people next to the waiters station when the restuarant was 1/3 full is NOT nice.
Great food and fun way to ring in the New Year. Definitely not a cheap night though, you do get what you pay for.
NYE with Family
Dinner was excellent as usual; must know that the atmosphere is going to be somewhat chaotic, which is the charm. Early dinner on New Year's eve was especially chaotic with slower than normal service. Sesame salmon was outstanding; veal milanese was surprisingly bland. Wine was excellent.
The staff is a little intense. They would come around multiple times to check on you which became annoying
Service and attitude were awful. Food was fine. Drinks and food are overpriced considering the quality, and that attitude of the staff (hosts, wait staff, bartenders). I was never a fan, and I am never going back.
Food is always reliable. Staff was very friendly and the ambiance of the restaurant warm and cozy
Visited Mercer Kitchen for the first time and it was great. Food and drinks were wonderful, some interesting and successful combinations of flavors. Portion sizes are perfect. Try the carrot cake for dessert! We will definitely return.
Most Food was good. Calamari a bit mushy.
The food was regular. We hope better.
The monkfish was really spicy, acid and soure. Not well valence the flavors.
Excellent service and delicious food!
A must for every NYC trip! Absolutely delicious! Unique food and drink menu. Something for everyone.
Service was non existent. Took our order and food came out from other runners. Never saw our server again until we asked for the check. We were running to the bar to fill our own waters. Nice atmosphere though and the food was good.
Food was average
Nice lunch. Sit upstairs. Less noisy and brighter. Always enjoyable.
menu de Noël un peu trop cher pour ce qui a été présenté....
Muy buen ambiente y trato profesional . Los platos del menú de navidad buenos aunque no sorprendentes. Repetiría para probar su menú habitual
Loved the atmosphere! The food was delicious!
the kitchen sent out the wrong food options twice, i ate my meal while my mom had to wait for hers. very unfortunate. although the food was absolutely incredible and wouldn’t change a thing, the vegetarian menu was much appreciated.
Clearly only hiring staff for looks, not skill, attitude or concern for the comfort or care of guests.
Cocktails were blah, food was inconsistent, service was lacking, and I will not return or recommend.
It was great
