Success! Thanks for posting your review of Mercato Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Thanks for move to another table

Saturday night dinner... waited 30 mins. This is a small restaurant and we were shoved into a small corner. Our waiter came right over, explained the one special, then vanished for 20mins. We then placed our complete order. Had the Whole Grilled Artichoke and some cheese for the appetizer. This took about 25 mins. The appetizers were very good...but 25 min is way too long to wait. Our dinner ( Lobster & Shrim... view more

neighborhood gem

We had walked in Christmas Eve after seeing The Nutcracker. We were warmly welcomed and seated promptly, it turned out to be a wonderful and romantic evening to ring in the holiday season. The antipasto selection was delicious and as a reviewer pointed out, the garlic and basil olive oil tasting is a definite must!! My husband had the humongous pappadelle entree and devoured the entire thing! He continuously commen... view more

Love This Place!

The food here is amazing! I first went with three friends during restaurant week and we sampled a bit of each other's food, nothing disappointed. I was so amazed by the flavors in my own entree and appetizer. The basil and garlic olive oils were unbelievable. I've been back once more since and have plans to go again in a few weeks. I tend to go early on weekdays to avoid the waits and the hustle of the late eveni... view more

Great food outweighs hostess attitude

Wonderful food at this place. Hostess put us off at first, but was soon forgotten when we got our dinner.

Great food, never dissapoint!

Mercato is one of my default place to go to when guest are in town or i just want a good meal. I had have everything on their menu before, and I must honestly say that I haven't come across something I don't like. Yes, the service can sometime be hit or miss, so is the hostess. But the food is what keep me from coming back. Seriously, give it a try, you will not be disappoint!

Very Poor Customer Service

We tried making reservations for a night during Restaurant Week. Even though they won't usually take reservations for 7:30 on a Friday night they do take them during this special week. When I called I was told by the person answering the phone that they don't take reservations during service hours but she took my name and number and told me I would get a call the next day between 10 and 3. Two days later I was cal... view more

rude host and waitress, great food

I went with a group of 4 during restaurant week on a Friday at 8:15. We had reservations for 6 but the other couple had canceled an hour before so my friend who made the reservations called to let them know and they still insisted on charging her card $50 for the no shows. When we arrived at the restaurant my friend went to speak with the hostess who was ignorant and rude. She told my friend that she could not get th... view more

Worst Service in Center City

A friend and I just had dinner at Mercato for restaurant week. Mind you, this is a recession, it was not as crowded as it could have been. We showed up and waited over half an hour past our reservation time - this is a ""work night,"" lovely how little respect they have for our time, but no apologies, no, instead they deliver to us two salads one WITH SHARDS OF PORCELAIN IN IT. My very polite friend points out to the... view more

Good food, poor service

Food was excellent, but the hostess and manager were terrible. Very unaccommodating, especially for a large party. We had a party of 6 and they sat us at a cramped table and refused to give us a larger table, even though one was available. Perhaps better for a party of two
