"I love the food! The host was uninviting (African- american guy with a low cut). The server was great. We sat next to the bar, and there were several people constantly bumping into our table. I'll be back to mercado because of the food . . . That's about it."

"I made a reservation here last minute to celebrate a friend's birthday. I had never even heard of Mercado and I didn't really have the time to read Yelp reviews or research the venue online. I literally picked this place off of Open Table based on its cuisine and location. Best gun slinger, last minute decision I have ever made.
Literally my party of 6 had the best time. We got sat at this large, round table up on the 2nd floor surrounded by hundreds of tequila bottles. Where we were sat, felt very VIP, which was nice on account of the occasion. The food was out of this world good. We ordered family style so we pretty much tried everything on the menu and truly - nothing disappointed us. NOTHING. We also ordered 3 desserts - a choice completely worth buying a pair of fat pants. Delicious. And on top of all of this - our server was awesome; super attentive and made great suggestions when deciding what to order. A 5 star night and at $100 bucks a person (including tip) it was completely worth it. Can't wait to go back."

"We were visiting from New Zealand and wanted an authentic Mexican eating experience. This gave us everything we wanted. The waitstaff were very knowledgeable, helpful and patient. The food was incredibly fresh and flavorful. We dined with our 3 children aged 9-13 and we all loved the food. Mercardo is a must visit restaurant when you are in Santa Monica."

"Three of us travel around the country every January on a business trip and every year we stay in Santa Monica for 3-4 days. The Blue Plate Oysterette was our favorite restaurant for several years until this year when we tried Mercado. The food is delicious and unique and our server was wonderful. The only complaint is that it is extremely loud, but if you can handle that, it's awesome. We will definitely go back next year when we're in town."

"Always great food but they could be a bit more generous with their tequila shots!"
