Had the dinner tasting menu and this is one of the most capable kitchens in Vancouver. Serving Nouvelle Haute French cuisine with wonderful BC ingredients. My meal was balanced, flavourful, and beautifully plated. Each ingredient was expertly prepared. This is a world class restaurant in terms of service, food, drinks, and ambience. Perfect for the special occasions!

I've had the pleasure of dining at Market for several work events, but this was the first time celebrating a special occasion with my spouse. It was a fantastic evening and the tasting menu was absolutely wonderful. The hand-crafted cocktails are also pretty amazing! Definitely recommended.

Had a small group of four, our server was amazing ( I wish I could recall his name, he was French ) and the food was delicious. We had a small hiccup with the temperature of one of the dishes, but it was taken care of immediately, and the restaurant generously took it off the bill, and took are of dessert. Did not expect that, but it was definitely a classy touch. Will be back for sure.
I personally had the chicken breast and it was so juicy and delicious. The wine list was very commendable. Great evening out. Keep up the good work

Came here with my partner for the tasting menu. Everything was amazing but it would’ve been nice to have had the online menu updated since my partner did not like the dessert since we expected something else but most of the items on the menu remained the same so we still enjoyed the overall experience.

Celebrated our wedding anniversary here. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Serves a west coast cuisine with French infusion. Would recommend. Wine pairing includes local, Spanish and French wine. The wine themselves are nothing special. The pairing were smartly done to give an elevated experience.

Tasting menu takes about 2.5hrs to experience.

Food was generally tasty but service lacked personal touch (too manual-based, lacked sincerity). Some of the dishes tried to be unnecessarily Japanese/Asian & too complicated—risotto dish was good but probably better without the deep fried “Enoki”, and salad was probably better without “Shiso leaves”.

This is not my first time dining at this restaurant, and definitely won't be the last. All the staff are so friendly, greeting us upon entering the restaurant, friendly and attentive server, care for what we are there for, giving us a real positive surprise and food is super duper nice: soup of the day (artichoke), Haida Gwaii Halibut, tortellini with mixed seafood, seared Alaska scallop, all are super yummy. The staff has really done extra miles to make our lunch so remarkable.

My wife and I enjoyed our Market experience. The food was expertly prepared with outstanding ingredients and was very good. However, it was a bit overpriced for our particular expectations. We also prefer a more lively, contemporary ambiance. The seating in the main dining room is very quiet and on the "stuffy" side. This is a great restaurant for business or special occasions.

I had the Chef's tasting menu and wine pairing. The food and wine were well paired, and the portions were good for a six-course meal. They chef came to the table twice to review his creations and to add fresh truffles to the dish. The food and wine was great, the service excellent and the restaurant was centrally located in downtown Vancouver.

Fantastic dining experience from booking the reservation to paying the bill!
Staff that greeted us, served us, cooked for us were all fantastic!
Table of four adults everyone had an appetizer & an entree & we shared 2 bottles of gorgeous BC wines. We shared 1 sourdough round to start. It was a special occasion celebrating 2 birthdays one of them a milestone birthday so I had arranged the day before for something special. Bobby surprised our table with 2 lovely deserts to share that were the restaurants specialty. Peanut butter chocolate pâté style dessert & white chicolate cheesecake w/ meringue shards. Fabulous way to finish our evening.
Our friends from Switzerland were suitable impressed.
We will be back as the menu needs more discovering!

Ordered Seared Scallop & Shrimp salad as appetizers. Scallop tasted fair, Shrimp dressing was overly sour. The 2 mains were Halibut and Steelhead, Halibut was fairly cooked, sauce was slightly salty. The Steelhead was too salty, the entire plate was not eaten. Dessert was Almond tart, tasted strange, server said was gluten free and vegetarian. Doesn't taste and look like a tart, just a square piece of loosly flour put together. Service was good though and the Steelhead was not charged. Overall it was a disappointing meal, was here 2 years back, the food tasted better then.
