Thank you for the amazing customer service we received while our family and friends were there celebrating my wife and I getting married an hour before. We would like to commend Lara on her amazing service and going above and beyond for us and getting us a great spot within the restaurant due to the bad weather that day. We also would like to thank you for the gift for my wife and I and we appreciate it so much.

Probably frequent The Merchant too often but only because the staff are great, food and drinks are awesome, and always guaranteed a good time.

Table service was virtually non existent, we had to go to the bar to place drink orders as floor staff didn't really come near the table other than to take food orders and deliver the food. No one checked on how the meals were.So the Merchant missed out on dessert orders and additional drink orders. Had to ask for water for the table on several occasions. Would have expected much slicker table service. Alas, it seems to be a dying art at restaurants these days. Food was good.

The feedback I have is that your venue was very full and the noise level was extremely high. Perhaps when there are a lot of people all talking and laughing you should turn the music down just a tad. Music does create a great atmosphere but when a lot of people are all trying to talk over it the noise creates a new atmosphere.

We just had our work Christmas party at Merchant Bar - and a great night was had by everyone. Lara the Events Coordinator was amazing to deal with - everything was so easy and stress free. Food was awesome and the boys definitely enjoyed the beers. Cheers team.

Ive been eating here for quite a long time and food / menu had slowly got worse. Had the $24 Papaya salad last night with $7 of squid added, thank goodness or it would have been an expensive and tasteless small coleslaw. However, our waitress did give us very good service. Just finding food options lacking and price a bit high.
