Was great food! Service was a bit slow but not the waiters fault- he was coming around to pour water regularly. Really lovely place!

Great value with the cold temperature promotion although the temperature was colder than what they determined it was. Service was ok, food was excellent, would have been too pricey without the promo deal.

We had a wonderful NYE experience. Our party of 4 decided on the 3 course meal and it was amazing! From the Butternut Squash soup start to the mouthwatering main course of prime rib, potatoes, corn, Brussel sprouts (my personal fav!) and Yorkshire puddings, to the full apple pie to compliment the meal. Wow! It was amazing. And the added bonus, such a great value! We even had the Chef visit our table. Kudos to all of the staff for excellent service and and an amazing dinner & experience. Looking forward to our next visit.

The food was really good quality, very fresh ingredients. It tasted great, and was well presented with generous portions. The service was amazing. And I loved the decor. My only complaints are that we were seated inches away from another table. Even though the restaurant was 75% empty. (Literally 6” away) and the food wasn’t very hot. I’d still recommend and return though. I might just speak up about getting a more private table.

From the minute we walked in till we left, we had great service. Waitress was very good about explaining menu and what options were available for the gluten free person in our party. Some complimentary “amuse bouche” to start followed by the brussel sprouts appetizer . Even if you don’t like brussel sprouts, these were delicious. All four enjoyed our mains, chicken and steaks. Service was attentive, but not rushed. Water as well as wine glasses kept full at all times. The restaurant has noise baffles in the ceiling, so never too loud. We highly recommend and will definitely return.

Have been to Market many times, and honestly it’s our favourite restaurant in the city. The food is always top notch and delicious. The service is great, the drinks are great, and the ambiance is great.
The bison taquito is a must, and the farm vegetables are without a doubt one of the best things I’ve tasted in all my travels. Would HIGHLY recommend.

2nd visit. 2nd time we had very slow, unexceptable service. Server nice & thanked us for our patience 3 times. Most tables looking around for service & to order. Then waited so long for a drink & food. Coffee was terrible. $26.00 hamburger was just passable & not worth it. All food was average. The place was half full & 4 servers & a support runner so very surprised how terrible the service was. Again. Most tables were looking around for food ,drink,& service. We will not go back. Also. Jasper Alberta is 4 hours from Calgary. Quite a famous mountain town , Jasper Brew Pub being well know with their products. Market actually has typed out on their menu that Jasper is in BC. That is unexceptable for the F&B, tourism ,to be a fairly well know restaurant and be ignorant or lazy to not have Jasper in the right province. We drove far for the hip hop brunch with our teens. Will never be back

Hello Shoya, we appreciate your constructive feedback. I am sorry your experience with us was not enjoyable. That's definitely not a standard for us and have shared your comments with my team to assess what happened. In regards to our menu error, we recently switched our beer menu this weekend. We caught the error and changed it immediately as we are well aware Jasper is in Alberta. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention. We hope you will give us another chance in the future.
