Sat outside and had a delicious brunch, great people watching and great service
The server was clearly distracted. The food was barely hot. Multiple mistakes were made with our order. I would not return here at all.
Four of us went and loved the food and drinks! Service was great too! However it was very very loud.
Food was delicious and cocktails were complex and tasty. Food service was too fast as we were only halfway through our appetizers when our entrees were served.
Very good food! Our server was very attentive and his timing was perfect. He knew when to ask us what we needed next and we never had to chase him down.
Food was great! Only issue was I ordered a meal to go for my husband and asked for the chicken sandwich and was given the BBQ pork sandwich instead. Otherwise good experience.
Food was great, great atmosphere, I will definitely be back again soon
First time there. Service was horrible even though restaurant didn't seem busy. We sat for 15 minutes without being acknowledged by the several employees, including hostess, walking by. Drinks took forever as did food. Two tables sat after us received their food and finished before we got our two salads. Food was ok. Menu looks very interesting so chalking bad service up to the day and would consider giving the Merc another try.
Great brunch and bottomless mimosas! We had a perfect seat on
their patio as well!
Food was delicious and waitstaff friendly, enjoyed our evening! Would have liked food to come more quickly - took ~1hr from time we were seated to time food was served.
Cocktails were very good and interesting. I thought the The 430 was amazing! The fried chicken sandwich was also incredible. Highly recommend
The adult grilled cheese sandwich was amazing and our server was attentive and friendly.
This place is elegant with an awesome vibe. I went for brunch and the food was amazing. The service was speedy and friendly. The "No Huervos Ranchero" is absolutely incredible. The Salmon Nicoise was percent.
We had a wonderful dinner at the Merc Friday night. The food was delicious, the service fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening so much that we then returned for brunch on Easter Day. Again, we had a wonderful time!
Thanks, Allison! We're glad you enjoyed everything and can't wait for you to come back!
Excellent brunch spot! Friendly wait staff and great food. The Friends with Benny was delicious and the bottomless mimosas cant be beat!
Thanks, Jord! Come back soon!
The food is really good, its not a huge menu but there is something to please even the pickiest eater. The blood orange margaritas were outstanding
Great brunch and cocktails! Service was great as well.
Great spot, we stopped for Brunch during a visit to Toga. Would definitely go back.
Top 5 Best chicken and waffles I have ever had. Everything was amazing and we will definitely be back. No complaints- Waffle fries and brussle sprouts as an app are highly recommended.
I hate leaving negative reviews but we had the worst brunch experience here. We were just short of forgotten about during our Saturday afternoon. We were only checked on once in an hour, took a half hour to get one drink, had to flag down the waitress to even order after an hour, had to find another server to get the rest of our order, needed to ASK for them to clear some glasses from our table ... the list goes on and on. The 10 person table to our right had NO issues getting their food and drink for the hours we waited - they had constant service to where someone was always delivering items multiple times over before we were even asked if we needed something.
In the end the food is very good through and through, but lost much of its luster due to the imposing presence of poor service.
Delicious brunch and mimosas were amazing!
Our waitress Rachel was great, quick service!
It took over an hour for the entrees to come out, and no explanation was offered. The food quality was not bad, but after waiting for over an hour, you would expect more. Having recently moved to the area, this was the first subpar meal we've had. The decor was nice, and the servers were pleasant, but the quality of the meal suffered as a result of the unexplained wait time and lack of attention.
It’s in a great location and the food and service were great.
Can’t remember my servers name but she was awesome. Didn’t rush us on the brunch. Food was top notch. Best chicken waffles. Also salmon was great too. Don’t forget to get the cocktails.
The hummus and Brussel sprouts were OUTSTANDING! I would definitely return.
Delicious brunch in great atmosphere!
Charming, well appointed environment in this local spot. At 9:30 on a Sunday there was a full house for brunch. We were seated right away near the window. Staff were friendly and wore masks at all times. We quickly scanned the menu and ordered. And waited so long to be served that my husband was getting irritated. Portions were large. My brioche French toast was very soggy in the middle - needed a couple more minutes on the grill. My husband’s eggs were perfectly over easy and the sausage links were big and juicy.
I was extremely disappointed with the food and the service.
Sunday brunch was delicious. Everything was cooked perfectly! We sat outside and it was a bit chilly. I hope they get heating lamps for the outside areas. Would definitely go back!
The brunch was amazing! I had a fantastic Bloody Mary and the breakfast burrito, which was both huge and delicious!
Service was quite slow for us. Took a while for the food to arrive. The drinks were pretty good - had a Bloody Mary and spiked cider. Ordered tomato bisque, which was good, and BLT deviled eggs which were okay, nothing spectacular. Would come back, but not on the top of my list.
The Dinner selections while fewer than other establishments had everything we wanted! Try Sliders without buns, yum! Hummus plate with warmed pitas? Wow! Our Server was a real joy.
Waiting for 40 min to an appetizer then asked why all the food did not come out together - which were sandwich and an egg plates. Told by waitress that I did not specify that.
Thank you for the review, Jennifer. We apologize for your experience on Labor Day. Due to technical difficulties that morning we weren't able to open until about an hour after our normal time. The same issue slowed us down quite a bit for the entire day. But we promised to be open that day so we did the best we could under the circumstances. If you'd give us another chance we'd love to make it up to you by buying you brunch. Please email us at themercsaratoga@gmail if that would work for you.
My friend and I had a great experience from start to finish. Our waitress Josephine had so much energy and made our experience memorable! The food and cappuccino were fantastic!! I highly recommend stopping by!
Thank you for the great review! We're so happy you had a nice experience with us.
We ate outside on a beautiful night. This was not our first visit to Mercantile but was our first time during Covid. I checked the menu online to be sure my son would find something he liked. Imagine my surprise when we were handed a menu with a few appetizers, two soups, two salads and about 8-10 different sliders. Nothing like the menu online. I understand that restaurants are managing the best way they can during extraordinary circumstances. It would have been more forthcoming for Mercantile to post the menu they’re currently offering online. The food we had was good. I just there'd been a wider selection.
Hello there! Thank you for the 4 star review! Our menu is updated on Opentable and also our website themercsaratoga. (Unable to type the entire address due to Opentable restrictions.) Do you mind telling us where you were looking so that we can address the issue? We apologize for the misinformation and would like to make the necessary corrections. Thank you so much.
Limited menu right now. But everything we ordered was good and the service was very good. Good outdoor seating
Hi, Robert! Thanks for the review. As of now we're just adjusting best we can. Brunch is what we mainly do but we wanted to have an offering for the evening Summer crowd too. Hopefully everything is back to normal again soon.
Our favorite place for breakfast during our vacation ,i wish we lived closer , absolutely like nothing we have ever eaten before. We had the chicken and waffles and let me tell you i have never eaten chicken in my life that delicious and crispy and juicy .my family loves you guys. Staff super awesome as well. What presentation with the food lunch breakfast ect.
Hi, Antonio! Thanks for the wonderful review. We're so glad you had a great time with us and hope to see you again soon.
Service is slow-ish but food is good. I would revisit in the future.
We love it there!!
