The staff at The Merchant Albany were friendly helpful & always had a smile on their faces. Very fast service...we were all very impressed with the food and the waitresses that served our table. I was completely happy from the moment I booked the table to the moment i walked outside, even the doorman wished us well. Although we live up north I'd definitely like to come back sometime and recommend this place to others.

Good night out atmosphere, service and food were all good. The extra service by ringing and advising of road closure and then where we should park was fantastic.

Food was over priced and poor quality. Order eye fillet, served on top of a small portion of greasy fries and 2 fried eggs. Would not eat here again. However, good atmosphere for meeting friends for drinks. Disappointing.

There were 12 in our group and the restaurant was busy but I felt the service was slow and meals came out gradually (some at our table Were well into their meals before their sides arrived). We’ve been here many times and will definitely go again.

I had to get up from my table to find a server to come and take our order despite the restaurant not being busy after being seated for nearly 15 minutes. Waitress was apologetic, but not the service I would have expected from this establishment.

Service was very good. We were on a shorter time frame and everything was well timed, even though it was a little busy. Food was faultless on this visit. Small Note. It can get very loud when busy....but I don't know if there is anything you can really do about it (it's a popular venue)

The staff are so efficient and know the right amount of attention to give without it being too much. Great food as always and topped off by a beautiful day with the doors open so we could appreciate the view and fresh air. Thanks again!
