We were so excited to have dinner here. I made reservations for our family a month in advance but from the moment we arrived it was downhill. We had to wait 45 minutes for our table. There was a table in the front room, set for 6 but they wouldn't seat us there because it was "reserved" for another party... More

We had sort of forgotten about Mercato until a few weeks ago when my husband and I wanted to pop out for a Friday night dinner. We called just ahead and they squeezed us in and I'm so glad they did! The atmosphere is really lovely and the service and food were just excellent. We went back just two weeks... More

Great meal, fab food, superb service in October after a very mediocre visit in August. Thank you for training your staff and reverting back to the old Mercado we know and love. This is an innovative restaurant but understated restaurant, using local ingredients, an interesting wine list and offering a great meal and warm place to be on a cold... More

A few weeks ago during a two-night stay in Red Hook, my wife and I happened upon Mercato, a short walk away from the main street of Red Hook. Our meal was simply superb! Fresh pasta, perfectly cooked veggies, unbelievably tasty salad and a nice, modestly priced wine made this a perfect evening in a quaint candlelit setting that is... More

We had a lovely dinner at this Red Hook Italian restaurant. The appetizers were delicious and out dinners were wonderful. The desert was great so what's to complain about. I had the pasta special and my wife had the suppa. Excellent dinner and service.

A warm greeting and a perfect table to have a delicious dinner. Carefully prepped salad with fresh, local ingredients and Italian mozzarella-abfab way to start. Menu changes daily and has choices for every dietary pref. My pasta with "basic" red sauce was so delicious I had to finish it all. Nice wines & great expresso. It can get a little... More

On Thursday evening I went there with three other adults. The food and wine were EXCELLENT. Yes, there were plenty of people there, but who would want to go to a restaurant that is not popular? The ambiance was welcoming and very pleasant. The service was very good. We all shared such a relaxing evening. It's not cheap, but you... More

In short.. Angry and disgruntled patrons due to very loud family table in back room (with dog in tow) (illegal inside, no? ) sloppy service, dirty cutlery, chef yelling at staff, good food, could not wait to pay and get out. Complete decline of a nice spot, terrible management, give it a miss. Or order food to go for now.

We enjoyed our unhurried meal during our girl's weekend. All the dishes were exquisitely prepared and presented. Everyone raved about the squid-ink seafood pasta, which I had to forego, due to gluten-sensitivity. But I enjoyed the risotto with shrimp, which was a hearty portion. It was quite noisy, issuing from the 4-top next to us, the tiny kitchen nearby, as... More
