I came to Mercat thinking that its just another tapas spot but left the restaurant longing to return again. The atmosphere was dark and romantic yet vibrant and trendy. It had a rustic and warm feel to it with wine shelves overhead,

This is the first time I write a review, why now? because I'm from Spain and I always look forward to go to new spanish places. Mercat had a great atmosphere, we were seated right away (we had a reservation) and the service was excellent.

the food is too salty that you can't even taste the ingredients themselves. the secret of a good cuisine is in the quality of the ingredients. food in this restaurant comes with so much salt and paprika that one cannot even taste the food

I studied in Barcelona and this place feels authentic.I love the warm space. The pork belly and Tortilla Espanol are my favorite dishes. The staff is friendly and I didn't mind waiting the 20 minutes for a table. The churros are delish.

Pros: Cheese, Wine and Tapas

I will join the consensus and highly recommend this restaurant. Yes, it's busy and crowded (even on a Tuesday), but it's a fun dining experience that is a change from the ordinary. We tried the majority of small plate items on the menu.

They don't take reservations for parties of 6 and up...so it's NOT the place to go for group dining.

There's no sign! Do these people think that not having a sign is cool? When I walked in, I mentioned to the man that claimed he was the manager that they should get a sign, and he smugly told me that they didn't need one. On the get go
