My wife and I visited on a Sunday evening. It is a small place. tTe food is delicious and the staff attentive. Not your usual Italian fare.

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

Had dinner there on Sunday night; needed reservation as it was crowded. The food, particularly the chicken liver on toast, was outstanding. Excellent duck and branzino. Good wine list by bottle or glass and good service staff. Prices are high for upstate NY but not for NYC. Mercato is a stand out and worth the trip to Red Hook, a... More

I was so looking forward to dining at this restaurant. We had passed by number of times and set our sites on it for my birthday dinner. The food was unquestionably good, the wine by the glass was smooth and appropriately priced. My quibble was with the plant, so noisy and uncomfortable and the service, which was capable but rushed...

The food at this hot spot is always good. Its a hip spot, great bar to hang at. I love the setting in an old home, a few blocks off the main drag. The homemade pasta is always delicious. I've had the ravioli with different fillings; all varieties were excellent. The ingredients are locally sourced, their farms, etc., listed on... More

Well prepared food from top fresh ingredients characterize Mercato. Set in an old house 3 blocks off the main drag in Red Hook, we had very good food, with only a few quibbles. Appetizers were braised octopus with white beans and gnudi with black kale sauce, served sequentially so we could share. We scraped the serving plates clean. My wife... More
