    Great to stare, not to eat

    First let me start the review by stating I am a good-looking 32 year old who likes to dine out and be social, going to hot spots, velvet ropes, and all that jazz. I always find it's important to know WHO is reviewing the restaurant- That being said, I will say that Mercer Kitchen has a pretty good scene, great people watching, truly a place that as you are walking through, other guests are trying to visually trash and adore you at the same time. You know the drill. So if you are looking for a be and be scene, then this is a decent place to start. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR GOOD FOOD AND SERVICE, this is NOT the place. No. no. NO! We were seating at about 9:45 or so- only ordered a few appetizers and 3 entrees. The 'large' seafood platter that came out was a HUGE bowl of ice, and 2 measly king crab legs, 8 shrimp (smallish), 8 tiny clams, 8 tiny oysters, and some mussels. So, asides from the fact I could have eaten this all myself, 5 (yes FIVE) of the muscles were unopened!!! For all you who don't know, this is a sign of a bad mussel. Shellfish, upon steaming/cooking, should naturally open up. We were served these! And no, they weren't accidentally in the mix. They way they were presented, each mussel is individually placed in the ice- so anyone would have immediately noticed. Also, we had to EXPLAIN this to our waitor. Isn't this common knowledge? Then it took an hour and 20 minutes to bring out the salads. THEN, the waiter came over and told us that TWO of the entrees on the menu were sold out. We explained this to the manager and all he could do was give excuse after excuse. How about admitting it was a terrible thing and comping a few items off the menu??? All in all, I will NOT go back, ever. Not even for the scene, it wasn't all that. There are way too many hot spots to go to in NYC.

    Nice evening dinner

    I recently visited for a Saturday dinner. The atmosphere was very nice and so was the food. I had the duck entree and it was wonderful! Our server was great and helpful. I was so impressed that I am going there today to try their lunch menu!

    Nice Ambiance, Bad Scallops

    I agree that the Mercer Kitchen has a wonderful ambiance and the service is 5 stars, if you want good food this is NOT the place to go, However, if you are on a liquid diet my suggestion is to come here just for the cocktails, then go elsewhere for dinner.

    Great ambience, Lackluster food Quality

    I expect more from a chef with a name than what I got. The atmosphere is nice and trendy. The waitress was nice enough, but we had a corner table and it seemed like we were forgotten half the time. We didn't even get bread. The appetizer I got was the Tuna Wasabi Pizza. Upon the first bite I found it delightful but after a few more I found the wasabi overpowering and made the pizza too hot to handle. The entre I got was the roast chicken. This was dry and basically overcooked. It was tough to chew and there was no juice to wash it down at all. The vegetables were also bland. They tasted boiled as if they just came out of the water and was placed on the plate. The dessert was "okay" but definately not good enough to redeem the rest of the meal. Value-wise, it was not worth it. My boyfriend ordered an 18 dollar glorified hamburger. I asked him if it was better than the southwestern burger at route 66 (est 10 dollars) and he said no. Overall I would NOT recommend if you appreciate food at all. If you just want to have fun with friends and drink, I hear the martinis are good.

    wonderful

    This place is so unique and beautiful - the candles and the warmth are very impressive. The food is fantastic as well. I had the baked salmon - the best meal I've had in a very long time. My friend had the chicken which was also outstanding. The appetizer pizza was unique but nothing too special. We had a great time there and I would highly recommend this place.

    still great after all this time

    I forgot about this place after not having been in so many years. Service was very attentive and the place was jammed by 8PM on a Tuesday. Appetizers were the bass carpaccio and the hamachi. Main courses were the scallops and the salmon.. All wonderful.

    Fun times. Food is Amateur Night though

    Ate at Mercer Kitchen last night with a large group of friends. Great place, decor, drinks and scene. We had a great time. The food however, was mediocre. I have no problem with this since I had such a great time. But a Jean-Georges restaurant? Come on. You're better than that.
