      Can you please post the address? I can't find any information on their homepage about this. Is it a market/deli/restaurant too?

        We were in to the new Mercato on Saturday in which the restaurant was open (right hand side of the building), but the deli/market wasn't opening unit the 21st (left side of the building). The address for the complex is: 873 85 St SW, Calgary, AB. Parking is looking superb!

    2. I was with a group of 8 on Saturday night celebrating a 40th birthday. The staff could not have been more accommodating. We called for a reservation a week before they opened and left our request on a general voicemail box. A couple of days later they called us back and told us they were unsure if they will have all their permits in place to open by Feb 18th. Two days later they called again and told us they were good to go and they were able to take our reservation. Since we were a party of 8 we had to pre-order our food with the menu being family style. They promptly sent me their menu to choose either a two course or three course menu. Once I made the food selections they got back to me right away by providing us a quote per person. When we arrived at the restaurant on Saturday night our experience with the food, service, management was top notch. For a restaurant that has been open for three days I expected some glitches but everything went perfectly. Everyone in our group had a great time, loved the food and walked away feeling like our group was treated a little special. I cannot think of one thing that we would have done differently. Well done!
