  • "Having been to Spice Market in the Meat Packing district inNCY a few years ago I jumped at the opportunity when I heard that the Head Chef of NYC Spice Market was invited to Market Jean- George for a collaboration! My date and I do not eat land animals, so we opted out of the $68 price fix. We each had 2 glasses of wine, an appy and a main ordered off the a la carte menu. The food was great but I wish there was more emphasis/excitement on how special it was to have Spice Market in the house. Great concept and with more promotion/awareness I think the collaboration series will be amazing and welcomed in Vancouver! Nothing overly notable. Service was fine, atmosphere was a little underwhelming, food was great, value.... Not particularly."

  • "Initially we almost got up and left. We went specifically for the special Spice Market meal. However my wife eats very little so doesn't ever order the 5 course menu. She wanted 2 appis. I wanted the 5 course menu. Then told us we both had to order the 5 course menu or they wouldn't serve it. I complained! A manager arrived and tried to explain why everyone at the table had to have the same. I said, so if I was here solo you wouldn't serve me the 5 course, correct was his reply. I tossed my napkin and got up to leave... they quickly had a change of heart and the meal was fantastic!! I hope they change their policy on that. It almost ruined a lovely evening. And yes, they did have the wine!"

  • "Everyone else loved there meal, 4 of us got the short ribs, mine was half fat which is not what I wanted while everyone else was perfect, my wife ate 3/4 of hers so I ate the rest and it was great. Everyone else would say this was a great experience, but you didn't ask them you asked me, who paid for the meal for 7 guests. You have a really beautiful place with a posh outdoor Vegas ultra lounge feel. This was my second time eating the food, the first was a special pre set meal for something I came for, I was really hoping this time would be a different experience, but now this is 2 bad experiences with the food. I only rated my food as a 1 star, the other 4 adults said it was a 5 star meal they had."

  • "Impeccable service, greeted right away at the concierge with a smile and taken to our table right away. Our server, greeted us with a smile and remembered us from previous times and it was great to have her looking us again(Alesha) .We chose to have the tasting menu which was their special (Spice market) and it was awesome. Each course was presented artistically beautifully and the food was delicious. The dining room was just a humming and I think the majority of them was having the tasting menu and it appears that everybody was enjoying their food. Hats off to the visiting chef Rico and the sous chef Lau, thank you for a lovely dinner and thank you to our server Alesha for making our evening a pleasant evening. We shall be back."

  • "I enjoyed the tasting menu with my wife. The food was fantastic. Aside from the rice side dish to my meat course being a little hard, my experience was excellent. The theme of the evening was "spicy" with cumin and cilantro making their presence known throughout the evening. The flavors were bang on and the temperature of the food (hot) made the dinner very pleasant. Although I paid 65 dollars each for 5 courses, it was worth it. The portions were perfect, as well. I loved the food. A must try..."

  • "Waiter informed us that the whole table had to order the tasting menu, when only two of 4 requested it and one was ordering gluten free! Instead of been recommended a solution, we had to speak to the manager and say that we wanted to split the party over two tables in order to fulfil it! Upon leaving there was no one at the coat check and another hassle to find someone - disappointing evening overall..."

  • "Don't get me wrong…I like to take my time when I dine, but I don't think it's normal that a meal should last over 3 hours. Granted, we were a group of 10, but a restaurant in a hotel should be able to handle large groups. The server was awful. He was absent most of the time, rarely checked in on us, and slow as molasses. We were put in a private room at the far end of the restaurant and assigned ONE server. I think he was either new, incompetent or just very slow. The drinks and courses took SO long to come out, and the dinner just dragged on forever. The ironic thing is that if they were quicker with our drinks, we probably would have ordered more, and they would have made more money. Good food, terrible service."

  • "Service was ok but not what you would expect at a restaurant with this reputation. The Crusted Tuna appetizer was tasty but the presentation was off (served with an overly large portion of the mayonnaise based side sauce). The Roasted Sable fish was not nearly as good as what I have had at other restaurants. My wife was disappointed with her short ribs. The soufflé was dry. Overall the experience was generally disappointing (I have been in the past and have had excellent meals here). Nothing was bad, but nothing was "Wow" either."

  • "I went here for a birthday dinner. I've been to Market previously for brunch and another time for drinks / appies in the bar area but wanted to try dinner so a birthday was the perfect excuse to go. My order was the beef tenderloin - it was delicious, lovely flavours. Dessert was scruptious - we all shared the blueberry cheesecake and molten lava cake. I would definitely come back for another dinner meal."

  • "This was not our first visit to Market, or a Jean-Georges Restaurant (the other being Spice Market in NY). While the two restaurants cater to totally different clientele, and are vastly different menus (and prices), I found our last experience at Market to be a bit of a let down. I would not classify us as foodies, but we do enjoy and appreciate good food. Unfortunately on this occasion, we both walked away feeling underwhelmed by our selections. Perhaps it's personal preference, but having visited both restaurants twice, I would opt for Spice Market."

  • "Took a business lunch with fixed price menu and it was excellent. This is a central downtown core location which is lifted above street level hubbub and provides a relaxed dining experience and great service."

  • "Perhaps my expectations were too high going into brunch, but Market did not deliver. We did the prix fixe option, and none of the elements ranked as outstanding, something I expected from a restaurant with a Michelin rated head chef. I had scallops, which were good but not excellent, and the eggs benedict with ham, which was not to my liking. It had some sort of brine, which tasted strongly of olives, a flavour that was not pleasing to my pallate. The carrot cake desert with cinnamon icing was very good. The service was excellent, and the ambiance was very nice as well. I would still like to try Market for dinner, in case our experience was just a one off, but I would not return for brunch."

  • "So often, the "modern" restaurants are full of wood, glass and just a lot of hardsurfaces that allow sound to bounce around and conversations to become inaudible. Not so with the Market. This is one reason why many colleagues select the Market for their lunches. On this one occasion, which was a celebratory one, the 6 of us were comfortable and confident that our conversations and laughters were not bothering other diners. Food was delicious - most of us selected the scallop appetizer and salmon entree - and the varied dessert combinations were delectably light. Service was outstanding; staff was friendly, professional and not stuffy. Pricier than expected with mashed potatoes, beets, veggies as side dishes."

  • "We had previously been there before and there was a full menu and it had been delicious so we decided to have our elopement wedding dinner there on Dec 24th. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!! They had a limited menu and the food was mediocre at best. I had put in our reservations that it was our wedding dinner and they were going to plunk us in the middle of a huge group of seated people in bench seating. I was in my wedding dress and I had put in our reservations that it was a special night, I thought it would be obvious that we would want a romantic table?!?! We had to be asked to be seated in a quieter more private part of the restaurant. BOO to Market staff for not being thoughtful at all. It isn't going to be our romantic go-to place anymore."

  • "This is our third visit to Market. I am always excited to get there for one of my favourite drinks, a Ginger Margarita. We tried the Tuna Tartar and the Beef Tartar. Excellent ! Next course, sablefish, done to perfection. Will be back soon as there are so many things on the menu we want to try. The staff is friendly and professional. We had a very enjoyable evening."

  • "I always order the same thing when I dine at the Market. The rice cracker crusted Ahi- Tuna is divine and the beet salad superb! We shared two desserts amongst four of us. The chocolate cake mousse was exceptional, but he banana dessert only okay. This is a great bet for good food and lovely setting."

  • "The Restaurant is nice, we were 45min early for a reservation that we did not need. They sat us right away to a small table in the corner, very tight. The gentleman saw I wasn't pleased but we did not want to make a fuss. We should have as our waitress was annoying and over-bearing. Food was good, good portions but the amount of wine they give in a glass is a couple of shots, more like a tasting. Overall nothing special, there are so many other restaurants in Vancouver that blow them away."

  • "I was in Vancouver on business and chose Market because it was close to the hotel I was staying at (Sutton Place Hotel). I was very apprehensive at first because I was casually dressed (it was a rainy night) and the place appeared to be very "fancy." I was pleasantly surprised to be so warmly welcomed by the host and hostess. The wait staff were very friendly and helpful in choosing a pre-dinner cocktail. As for the main course, I had the short ribs and they practically melted in my mouth! For dessert I had hoped for the panna cotta that was on the website menu; however, since it was not available I instead chose the cheesecake. The sour cream sorbet was a great compliment to the plate. I will return when back in Vancouver."

  • "I had the Butternut Squash soup with Wild Mushrooms and the Steamed Shrimp Salad.The soup was very rich and subsequently delicious and the salad was the best that I have ever had. A wilted salad with warm dressing bursting with Umami, I didn't feel at all deprived or sad that I hadn't gone for the Fontina and Black Truffle Pizza. Service was a slow but we were eating outside of the normal business lunch rhythm of the room and likely got caught in a table turn wave. The room is unremarkable, but the food makes up for everything. Market is also one of the few restaurants in Vancouver that serves properly brewed, unsweetened iced tea. The coffee was also very, very good. All in all a terrific lunch. I will be back."

  • "Two of my best friends & I have been meeting for lunch twice a year for over 40 years. We have been to many restaurants but Market remains our favorite because of the great service, food & ambience. We relax over great food as we catch up with each other's lives and enjoy each other's company. One of the ladies does not eat meat and Market always has a great selection of fish. The staff is so kind and let us take our time as we as our our dessert & coffee."

  • "The tuna tartare appetizer and tuna nicoise salad were both excellent. Lunch is reasonably priced and a nice way to get into a highly rated restaurant without spending a fortune. I was a bit disappointed that when we chose "still" water that it was apparently bottled water rather than tap water and there was a $6 charge for it."

  • "Very disappointed that we were seated at a table that the chairs are back to back to ours. There was no room to move and no privacy at all. You can hear the next table's conversation well. I sure would not consider the restaurant for fine dining and do not intend to go back again!"

  • "This was a very poor experience. The bread brought to the table that was stale, beets that were mostly raw in the beet salad, risotto that was still crunchy (and no, not al dente). It was very disappointing as we were vising Vancouver during Dine Out week and this was to be the one 'expensive' place we treated ourselves to for a romantic dinner. Turned out the cheap Indian the next night was a far better meal both in taste and value."

  • "With all the options out there in this lovely city do not overlook trying Market. It's upscale ambiance, fine dining and outstanding service reminded me of my dining experiences with my girlfriends in Montreal. I went during dine out Vancouver which allowed me to sample the fine cuisine at a moderate price. My starter of shrimp was delectable. My main of slow cooked steelhead was cooked and seasoned to perfection and the panna cotta with poached pears and pear sorbet was delightful and refreshing. I will definitely be going back."

  • "I was very excited to try Market. Service was very good and it's a lovely restaurant but the food was very underwhelming. For the price I expected to be blown away and instead thought it was pretty good but nothing to write home about. Save yourself the hundred bucks for the name Jean Georges and get a similar meal for half the price somewhere else."

  • "We had a group of 9 and were pleasantly surprised when we were given a private room. It was fabulous. We were out for the Dine Out experience, and Market delivered. The service was impeccable. The staff were friendly and helpful especially with a 4 year old energetic kid. The food was amazing and the ambience was perfect for an intimate gathering of friends. The noise level was minimal due to the private room, but it wasn't that loud in the main dining area. I will definitely go back to experience the regular menu."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "The food was very well done even for it being a Dine Out Vancouver. It was the best one out that I went to because of the quality and thought in the menu. One downfall is that there was a draft coming from one of the private dining rooms and from the window area that made it a bit uncomfortable and we weren't able to take our blazers off. The other was just that the server forgot that we ordered hot beverages with our dessert and when reminded you could tell that he forgot what the order was and that he guessed at our order and gave my friend the wrong tea. Otherwise great experience overall and the food was great."
