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!

We had our valentines dinner at the merchant last night.The food, drinks and atmosphere are great but we're not impressed with their service, it took almost 1hr for them to served our foods. We understand their busy because its valentines day but its way too slow to serve the food, we have our reservation around 7:15pm but we had our dinner around 8:15pm or 8:20pm, all of us are starving that time. So we have to finished our food on or before 9pm because we have a movie to watch around 9pm. On the other hand, staffs are friendly and nice.
