Booked for valentines day. They could not find my reservation but we got seated anyway. It took a while before anyone came around to take the order. There were shells in my crab salad. The waiters did not pay attention as to when wine needs to be refilled. One of them nearly took the plate away from us without asking if we were finished. 2 mins after the second course was served someone came around and asked if we were finished with it despite the fact the plate was nearly untouched. Food was food overall but service needs to be improved. Definitely.

Considering that It was for Valentine’s Day, service was absolutely amazing, fast and professional. Food was good and the atmosphere cosy. I will comeback for sure.

Whilst Mercante was a good option due to its location, the atmosphere was totally dead, and this at a lunchtime in December when it should have been buzzing. The food was nice but nothing too amazing.

Very dull atmosphere. Had high hopes as the menu, location and environment looked good. Small portions matched with high price tags and rude wait staff was a recipe for an unhappy experience.

The food was uneventful but not bad. Great staff. Not too posh a place for the Green Park area. Comfortable for a casual lunch with friends and no pressure to leave afterwards. Would recommend.

The food was quite basic nice carpaccio but without Parmesan Cheese
The chicken was basic and the Tiramisu which they say was great was actually very dry without a real taste
Service to constantly asking how was the food

The staff were knowledgeable abounthe food but did mix up our orders and considering how quiet the restaurant was they weren’t very attentive, we were not advised that the chicken escalope didn’t come with any sides and we had to order chips separately but they didn’t arrive until we had finished our mains. Not very much atmosphere for a Saturday night ok value for money but didn’t even offer a drink for the mix up with orders.

Went for a Birthday Brunch - something a little different from the norm and found this to be a quiet spot in Mayfair. The restaurant is quaint considering it is in the Sheraton Grand but the service was good. We had chosen the bottomless option and hadn't quite decided on 2 or 3 courses which was fine. Decent if limited choices, especially for vegetarians but the Purgatoria starter and the Salmon were very good. The Pizzas were authentic and tasty. The Sea bass was a little on the salty side but the salad it rested it on again quite delicious. ALl this washed down with prosecco, Rossolinis and Bellinis helped while away a lazy birthday afternoon. There was no rushing and the staff were keen to ensurer we were happy and refilled.
Overall a pleasant place to wine, dine and catch up.

Nicely designed restaurant; if a bit echoey.
Set lunch is excellent value
Starters and mains were excellent, but sadly deserts were not quite as good.
Bottle of Soave was good value too for a Hyde Park Hotel
Sadly our main complaint would be the service which was fine while it was working but seemed to disappear for periods (not the number of people just kind of their attention span!!???)
We did enjoy it and with slight reservations would recommend and revisit!

We were positively surprised. Mercante is the Italian restaurant of the Sheraton hotel, but service and food are not the traditional flavor and service of these establishments.
Every single dish was amazing, the server was italian, which was also great and prices are low compared to similar options in London for italian restaurants.
Greatly recommended.

A very dull lunch - there was only one other table (of two) in the restaurant. The service was the slowest one can imagine - were waiting for starters and then twice as long for the mains. Pasta was very average, chicken was dry and the portion of steak tartar although quite all right in taste was minuscule in size. Unfortunately very dull and empty experience on all fronts.

Chose due to deal and was close to the theatre location we had come from. Portions were very small and there was no option on the promotion menu for any side dishes.

It also took about 5 attempts with various members of staff to a) get the bill and b) get someone to come and take payment. So I won't be rushing back.

Enjoyed the Prosecco brunch. Had the brioche and avocado to start and meat balls in tomato sauce to follow. Bit basic, some pasta with it would had added something I taste and the cheesecake after was ok. Nice place for a get together whilst out shopping. Service was good.

Visited with one friend for a long-overdue catch up. Everything really good about this restaurant EXCEPT..............we were the only 2 in there hence no ambience whatsoever. This obviously is not the fault of the restaurant - just no-one wanted to eat out on Monday evening! there is no Set Menu right now so we were invited to choose from the main menu which proved to be outstanding value for money. There were a couple of things which weren't available but that didn't prove to be an issue. The portions are good size and very well presented. I didn't want a pudding and was allowed to have a cappuccino instead which was huge! All in all a great place to dine but don't go on a Monday if you want to be surrounded by other diners.

Dommage que notre réservation pour le nouvel an n’était pas parvenue au restaurant et heureusement qu’ils nous ont trouvé une table pour la soirée prévue. Sinon rien à redire c’était très bon et on a très bien mangé.

The restaurant was excellent. It was rather disapointing that I had to take the 60 pound menu, while it was an option on OpenTable not to choose it. It became an expensive diner. But the food, service and ambiance were wonderful.

Very disappointing as our food never arrived. Restaurant was 75% empty at lunchtime but both waitress and manager failed to check on us after taking our order. After 35 minutes I had to search out the manager who lamely apologised by saying that kitchen was overwhelmed by a large booking from the adjacent restaurant (apparently they share a kitchen). Entirely hopeless communication and we had to leave hungry with no time to do more than pick up a sandwich before returning to the office. Thank goodness my client saw the funny side.
