I recently took a first date here and am very glad that I did, because the experience was wonderful overall. I had the seared salmon, that was cooked perfectly, with just the right hint of moisture to it. My date thoroughly enjoyed the mussel soup she had. While the meals are a little pricey, the restaurant doesn't skimp on the portion size, so I found the meals to be a very good value.
Merchant's has a very nicely varied wine list, with many affordable selections across reds and whites, as well as high-end ones. Our waiter was very good, very attentive without being annoying, and offering good insights into the menu. The dinner was topped off with a delicious flourless chocolate cake that was almost like a mousse.
About the only detraction that I would mention is that the restaurant is a bit loud when full, but this was outweighed by the wonderful experience.
