I tried a number of times to get a reservation at a time that was good for me with no luck and finally took an inconvenient time and got in. This is fine dining priced so be prepared to spend $150 for two for dinner...More

If there were such a thing as a "chefs table" at Mercato, we had it. Full length view of the entire kitchen, never a shortage of action going on. Service was amazing, food was amazing, 5 star experience for sure! Can't wait to go back.

Sorry I don't know. We haven't been there for a while. But the lamp was the best dish we had.
