The food was great - however it took WAY to long. Ordered the lunch special and had to leave with a boxed dessert after 1h45min...not sure I would go back :(

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.

The food was excellent. Well prepared and tasty. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
The portions were good and each one had some sides included much as potatoes,
small salad or some fruit.
The coffee however was not great.... a little muddy with not much flavor.
Given that we were there for brunch, the coffee was important.

We found the table service not very attentive. Yes, it was "busyish" but not so busy as to wait for 10 minutes to order our drinks, another 10 to order the appies, Had to ask for side plates and cutlery was not complete. Server did not come around to ask how the food was. Also had to ask twice to have our water refilled. This is all very basic "good service" duties.
Our food was very tasty and yes, we will return. Hopefully things will have changed.
