Mercado - Los Angeles
Mercado is always a good go to for consistent food and great drinks.
Very slow for brunch - only a few tables. But it was great food.
Food was okay. Not worth the price.
I love going for Happy Hour! The potato tacos and Mexican Kale Salad are my two favorites and the hour Margarita is so good! One of my favorite spots!
The food is always top notch but today I think it’s worth mentioning that our server wasn’t good. He was spectacular. Such a lovely demeanor, he checked on us often without being intrusive, never seemed hurried, and got everything done quickly and correct the first time.
It’s always good. It’s usually like this but on a day where everyone else is in holiday? Thank you for being so very good at your job.
Not the restaurant’s fault but there was an annoying family next to us and on the other side an entitled loud woman asking for stupid customizations. Tamales and flan were fabulous! Best flan ever actually
Good food. No complaints.
Always reliably good food. Got to sit by the fireplace which made for a nice evening too.
Great food and great service.
Our server David Tapia was AMAZING! He was very attentive and easy on the eyes. We will definitely come back to sit in his section!
Amazing. Just sensational.
Our first time at Mercado. Wow! Awesome food, great service, generous portions, friendly host/ hostess. We will be going back for sure!
Mercado was delicious. Portions are a good size so you can share. Food is on the spicier side but the guacamole was the best I ever had. Service was excellent.
I'm biased because they carry my favorite tequila, Mandala. The staff is super well trained and always looking to serve its patrons. Food was superb. There was a minor mix up on our order, but we quickly had it rectified and they discounted our bill even though it wasn't necessary. I Love Mercado!
Love Mercado, have only been to the Santa Monica and LA location. It’s always crowded and loud but I can deal with that because the food has always been consistently delicious! I made reservations but we still had to wait....some patrons just won’t leave their table.
Great time great place great food always fun!
Love the carnitas
Tasty as always. Not cheap, but truly the best gourmet mexican cuisine in town.
The front desk duo and server were all incredibly nice and helpful. Above and beyond nice.
The guacamole is so fresh, so well-prepared, and the margaritas with top shelf tequilas are lovely.
This place had a cool vibe, and the food was fantastic. A bit of a modern twist on the recipes, well worth the drive. Oh, and definitely have the guacamole!
The food is always reliably delicious, a real treat! Two us had the carne asada, skirt steak, & it was incredibly tender & cooked to perfection--rare but not raw. It was hot, too, which isn't always the case with rare steak. One of us found the mole wonderful, when he typically dislikes mole. Our guacamole was superb, the tamale appetizer was excellent, & the flan I ordered for dessert was the best I've ever had, & I always order flan. It never disappoints.
2nd time here and each time was a great new experience.
Excellent service and reliably good food. A bit pricey for what it is, weak drinks.
We wanted a booth and kind of got one but not quite. The food is more expensive than it should be. But it is good.
Fabulous meal — great happy hour specials!
We LOVE Mercado!!!! Consistently great food and great value! :))
The food was good. Ambience is nice although a bit loud but I was least impressed with the service. Not friendly at all
The prices are way too high for the quality of service we received. We ordered chips and salsa as an appetizer before ordering our entrees, but we had to ask 3 times before they brought them, and they only came out AFTER our main dishes. Drinks came in glasses only half full, when we asked why they looked like someone had already taken some she said “oh these are pure booze—there’s no filler.” Looked like 1 oz poured over ice, a 2-sips-and-done “cocktail” for $13. Not impressed. Food was good but the service impeded is from fully enjoying the experience. Not to mention $16 for TWO tacos, rice and beans not included. Come on Mercado, what happened??
We loved our evening at Mercado and cannot wait to be back !
guacamole was outstanding
turkey tamales were amazing
carnitas over roasted pastor cauliflower was incredible
my wife LOVED the mole enchiladas
margarita’s are a lil pricey but good
we will definitely be back
Everything was although a little pricey, so delicious! I was also very impressed with our service. Everything came out so fast and efficiently. I will definitely be returning :)
Service & cocktails were superb. Food was very good but pricey. Will likely be coming back.
Excellent service, great food and a nice atmosphere
Always love the food at Mercado. It’s a little pricey and the service can be hit or miss, but the food is consistently excellent. Nice chill crowd, great for a get together spot.
As a vegetarian I would like more options. I really only have one option there.
