Our server Brandon was absolutely wonderful. The food was small portions but delicious, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was perfect! The only thing I was say is for the price, I wish the portions were a bit bigger.

Great food, great service, I found our bartender in particular didn’t smile a lot, it’s a little thing, smiling at customers, even when you rush past, calms people down, but besides that, the food was excellent

Food is great. Our server was okay, might have been a new hire. Everyone was friendly. Although, we think the patio could use an upgrade to match the inside or change the seat cushions.

Restaurant was very quiet at 6:30. Only 2 parties inside and none on the patio. “For the table” sized plate was smaller than anticipated for 4 people. Also for a 42$ steak not expecting it to be over cooked, but it was. Not worth the trouble sending it back. Otherwise, cocktails and everyone else’s meals were very good! Will most likely come back

Great food and atmosphere but honestly some of the worst service on 17th. Our server left us without drinks and was very slow to check on us. Waited 15 min to order drinks when we first sat down, our server also never brought out any of the items we ordered was always another staff member. Guy should look for a new career path serving isn’t his strong suit

Hey! Thanks for your review! We love to get feedback from our guests and definitely keep tabs on the comments. In regards to the TV's, we have lots of guests who enjoy sports and rather come to MARKET to watch the games, then a crowded bar or pub :) We don't play sound, but for our sports loving fans, they appreciate being able to watch the game when its on. We can appreciate its not for everyone though! Thanks again for your feedback and hope you will come see us again soon! Cheers, Vanessa

The food at Market was outstanding. The crab Caesar starter was perfect for a hot night and the Chicken main course was as surprise show stealer. The service however, was much slower than a mostly empty restaurant warranted.

My one complaint is that if they accept lunch reservations for 11:30 a.m. they should not be leaving their patrons locked out right until 11:30. That is what a Jugo Juice would do.

MARKET

Thank you Mark for your comments, we appreciate the feedback! We do open our doors at 11:30am sharp as we want to make sure that our team is ready and the restaurant is fully set-up and looking good for our customers. However if we notice customers waiting outside close to opening time, we definitely will welcome them to come in! We apologize if you were missed and hope you'll come again! :)

I made a reservation days in advance, as I was really looking forward to dining at Market for the first time. We arrived a couple minutes early and no one greeted us at the door for about 10 mins. Once we were greeted and seated we waited about another 10 mins for our server to finally arrive to our table to offer water.

Our server Dave was very dismissive of us since the beginning of the service. The only reason why I even know his name is because it was on the bill and not that he introduced himself. We shrugged it off as we are very low maintenance customers and I’ve been in the industry so I can empathize with him.

Throughout the whole service, he only stopped by about three times and what truly topped this experience was when he threw our receipt on the table once we settled the bill.

I am truly disappointed at this dining experience and have never written a review for any restaurant even if it was a negative experience. Though the fact that Dave rudely handed us the receipt on the table without thanking us or even bothered to ask how our experience has definitely ruined my friend’s birthday experience. I will not be a returning customer and won’t be recommending this restaurant to anyone.
