Smart/casual eatery with bar. Interesting food and pleasant staff. But why the tv above the bar? Downgraded the whole place.

The food and environment is good. I love their decoration, the layout and music. Their homemade ginger ale and the chips are excellent. Our waiter was awesome, friendly and enthusiastic. However, it took a bit long for them to prepare main courses. Overall, we had a good experience at Market.

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.

Market is looking a wee bit dated since I was last here a year or so ago. I was sent an email asking me to return and offering something special when I did. Nothing special materialized, perhaps I should have asked but that is not the point I think.

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
Responded on June 28, 2019

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.

Market was recommended by a coworker and I was very pleased with the experience. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. I took my elderly aunt and my cousin and the only downside was that a boisterous group was seated near us. Overall still a great experience. I will be be back.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Market two years ago and now it's our special place to celebrate our anniversary. Obviously we love everything about it - the food is great, the service is awesome (especially the manager, Megan who is just lovely). Thanks for everything Market, we'll be back again and again!

We didn’t think the food was that amazing... our steak was a little overdone, the Brussel sprouts were also over cooked. It just didn’t live up to all the hype and it was pricy. I probably wouldn’t go back.

Unfortunately due to poor service and difficulty accommodating allergies, we had to leave the restaurant. We transferred to another venue that was more knowledgeable on ingredients and experienced in accommodating needs. Very disappointed with our time here, I had high hopes.

Market is a gem within the Calgary restaurant community...the service was timely, we were left to visit, checked on at the appropriate times. We had the incredible Brussel sprouts as an appetizer followed by the Wagyu burgers, cooked to your liking, tender, melt in you mouth beef, the best burger I have ever had...scrumptious fries and a wonderful fresh salad. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Always love dining here. Monday's are my favourite night to go because of half priced wine bottles. The halibut is typically amazing, last time wasn't quite as good but still enjoyable. Highly recommend and love it here.
