rabbit special needs some sideshad a great lunch at the Mercer but would recommend that the staff help you out a bit more. i ordered the rabbit special but was disappointed not to have been prompted to order some sides - mashed potato and some spinach would have enhanced it greatly. but this is a good restaurant.13/06/2013 00:00:00The Mercer did not disappointBy City of London standards, The Mercer did not disappoint. I hate dining in noisy, crowded restaurants where diners are packed in cheek-by-jowl and unable to avoid each others' conversations, which seems the 'norm' these days. However, The Mercer came up trumps, with a quiet corner table as requested. The staff were attentive, the food was well presented and cooked to perfection, the wines were first class, and the bill was not exorbitant!24/04/2013 00:00:00Breakfast at The MercerHad a lovely breakfast at The Mercer, the choice was good and the coffee excellent. Service was very good. The only disappointment was that they were not able to provide gluten free bread (even though I had stipulated I was coeliac in booking online) which for a restuarant of this calibre was surprising.17/04/2013 00:00:00Steak is backSteak restaurants seem to have sprung up everywhere again! The Mercer is among the best, has a lots of red meat options, all tasty and well served. Having wine in carafes as well as bottles is a good touch too.
A really enjoyable place.12/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent serviceWe came to this restaurant for a birthday dinner. It's more of a lunch time venue than a weekday evening venue, so there were only a couple other tables of diners. The food was good but the service was excellent from start to finish. Would definitely return. The wine list is extensive and has some good value bottles.09/04/2013 00:00:00as ever a good experienceas ever a good experience with good food and service and friendly staff27/03/2013 00:00:00Never failsThe Mercer always provides quality - both in terms of food and service. Can't fault any aspect and thoroughly recommend for a business lunch or with friends.15/03/2013 00:00:00Very good, as usualA good menu to choose from and very swift service. Alwasy seem to have good food here and can recommend.08/03/2013 00:00:00Absolutely excellent foodAnd a very extensive wine list to match. Both my courses were truley delicious with the scallop & pork belly starter being one of the most delicious things I've eaten for a while. Not cheap but that's to be expected for the level of quality and lcoation. The service was slightly less attentive that you would expect for this level of restaurant in central London but it wouldn't put me returning as the food was so good.07/03/2013 00:00:00Wondeful food, friendly andWondeful food, friendly and attentive service and great atmosphere for a business lunch. Would highly recommend and will be returning soon.28/02/2013 00:00:00Good food and nice atmosphereAn underappreciated spot in the city for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Large enough to be appealing, but not too big to feel loud or impersonal.
Good choice of food and mix of flavours. Changing daily specials very nice.
Excellent choice of wine by glass and carafe (500ml)
Very attentive service without being overbearing25/02/2013 00:00:00Great breakfast in the CityIt's a bit quiet in the morning, but the service and food are perfect.

Would highly recommend for lunch.31/10/2012 00:00:00LunchAlways enjoy the Mercer. Staff are friendly, food is great. Never feel rushed and the ambience is one of the most welcoming within a City restaurant. My friend and I were left to enjoy our lunch over a few bottles of wine and I would always recommend this venue as either a place for friends or for business.03/10/2012 16:00:00Superior client serviceI had lunch with a client at this restaurant and subsequently wrote a negative review, based on the level of noise in the restaurant, caused by the staff moving dishes. I received a call from the manager who was very apologetic and she offered me the opportunity to go back and enjoy a free meal. I went back and I was treated like a queen. I was impressed by the outstanding level of client service. The food continues to be good and it's definitely a place I will go back to. They changed the way the store dishes and there was no noise at all.13/08/2012 00:00:00Have lunched at The MercerHave lunched at The Mercer many times (which is always good) but this was my first time there for breakfast. I wasn't disappointed. There is plenty of variety on offer to suit all tastes, from the LA-style smoothies to the full English, all the dishes were met with grunts of approval. The service was a tad slow but everything else top notch. Sadly I wasn't able to sample the Breakfast Cocktail list but may do on another visit. Will definitely return.10/08/2012 00:00:00
