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.

We had a party of 20 and were seated inside. Food was great. The wait staff were very good. The drinks were a little slow to arrive but understandable given xmas rush, and the wait staff were apologetic which was really good. Good communication. The only down side, which I guess xant really be helped (yet) was the smoke coming in from outside while we ate. A great experience. Thank you from all at Downer ES Auckland. Cheers

Thank you to all the team at The Merchant. They set up a lovely Christmas atmosphere for our end of year function - way more than I was expecting. The food was absolutely fantastic, as was the service. Could not fault a thing!
