In short.. Angry and disgruntled patrons due to very loud family table in back room (with dog in tow) (illegal inside, no? ) sloppy service, dirty cutlery, chef yelling at staff, good food, could not wait to pay and get out. Complete decline of a nice spot, terrible management, give it a miss. Or order food to go for now.

We enjoyed our unhurried meal during our girl's weekend. All the dishes were exquisitely prepared and presented. Everyone raved about the squid-ink seafood pasta, which I had to forego, due to gluten-sensitivity. But I enjoyed the risotto with shrimp, which was a hearty portion. It was quite noisy, issuing from the 4-top next to us, the tiny kitchen nearby, as... More

Had dinner there on Sunday night; needed reservation as it was crowded. The food, particularly the chicken liver on toast, was outstanding. Excellent duck and branzino. Good wine list by bottle or glass and good service staff. Prices are high for upstate NY but not for NYC. Mercato is a stand out and worth the trip to Red Hook, a... More

I was so looking forward to dining at this restaurant. We had passed by number of times and set our sites on it for my birthday dinner. The food was unquestionably good, the wine by the glass was smooth and appropriately priced. My quibble was with the plant, so noisy and uncomfortable and the service, which was capable but rushed...

The food at this hot spot is always good. Its a hip spot, great bar to hang at. I love the setting in an old home, a few blocks off the main drag. The homemade pasta is always delicious. I've had the ravioli with different fillings; all varieties were excellent. The ingredients are locally sourced, their farms, etc., listed on... More

Well prepared food from top fresh ingredients characterize Mercato. Set in an old house 3 blocks off the main drag in Red Hook, we had very good food, with only a few quibbles. Appetizers were braised octopus with white beans and gnudi with black kale sauce, served sequentially so we could share. We scraped the serving plates clean. My wife... More

This is the number one restaurant for a culinary valley that boasts the Culinary Institute of America with all of its best trained chefs fanning out to many great restaurants. But nothing, nothing, compares to the passion, the flavors, the perfection of every dish. We have never had anything less than a perfect and amazing dinner.

This was our last night of a twelve day vacation where we ended up near Red Hook so we wanted to treat ourselves to a great meal. The menu is brief but gives you enough choice to satisfy most. My sea bass was perfectly done and my wife's shrimp risotto was a delight for the tastebuds. The wine list is... More

Restaurant in a former house, with bar, trendy Italian. Reservations recommended on busy weekends. Good wine list. Salad was excellent and fresh. Perhaps we made a mistake in ordering pasta, not as imaginative as it could have been; but everything was excellent. I don't mean that I wanted wild combinations, but I like to eat food that I couldn't prepare... More
