A word from Market by Jean-Georges Restaurant
The concept of the “hotel as a home” extends to the restaurant as its casual family kitchen. Inspired by the casual, simple elegance of modern dining, Jean-Georges has created menus that emphasize fresh, locally produced ingredients, served in a sleek and sophisticated setting.

A destination restaurant with four distinct experiences: an intimate second dining room featuring a fireplace, a heated outdoor seasonal Terrace with city views, an enticing Bar and a sophisticated Dining Room. The full menu is available in all areas of the restaurant.

The Outdoor ( Seasonal ) Terrace and Bar are on a first come first served basis.

Please be advised that parties of seven or more are subject to an 18% automatic gratuity.

Diner Reviews
  • "Scallops and shrimp salad were amazing. The view from the patio was nothing special and it was cramped. Beef short rib recommended by my server was not all that"

  • "We found the food to be excellent, but service just seemed a little lost. It took a while for anyone to come to our table which was in the outdoor dining area and there was only one other table. The the martini was tiny only to be outdone by the even tinier olives. The outdoor dining atmosphere was nice, but it was empty, to be fair it was a Sunday evening."

  • "Had a really nice meal accompanied by some very nice Greywake NZ sauvignon. Only down side was they had no Halibut, the chef however substituted the dish with a different fish, which worked well. Overall a nice restaurant with friendly and attentive staff."

  • "Quite expensive for the quality of food and portion size. This summer, they had the Bubbles, Beats and Brunch theme going on so it was pretty loud. There were only 3 tables occupied at that time and one of the customers complained about the loud music blaring from the patio. After much discussion (the supervisor refused to have the music turned down at first), they decided to close the door to the patio and perhaps lowered the volume as well. If not for my Golden Circle member voucher, I wouldn't pay premium $$$ to dine here."

  • "My friends & I meet a few times a year to catch up on our 44 year friendship. We used to try different restaurants, but now we just go to Market because the food is so good, the service is great and the ambience is quiet & elegant. We love their willingness to accommodate us as we usually spend several hours together after lunch talking and catching up. The three course lunch is the best deal in town, and their brunch dishes served in the summer are creative & tasty."

  • "This location is right in the middle of serious downtown construction, so despite a very nice and meticulously constructed outdoor deck I decided to eat inside. Surprisingly empty, the decor is a bit imposing when there aren't many people around. Food was quality, the kind of modern cuisine you expect from a port town with access to quality ingredients. The steelhead was quite good, and the peaches for dessert were nice in their simplicity. Really wish I could have done their tasting menu, but the whole table has to opt it. I understand the chef's preference, but it's really hard to get an entire table to go all in on five specific courses."

  • "We went for saturday brunch. The balcony music is very loud and you have to yell at each other to talk just like in the club. we switch to the indoor seats. The cinnemon buns is over sweet. The salmon with crispy rice is too salty. You feel like you are eating the salt. The baked egg is very good."

  • "This was my 4th visit to the market, and as usual it didn't disappoint. Service was awesome and the food was delectable. As it was my wife's birthday, the staff thoughtfully provided a fabulous "dolce" birthday surprise complete with candle ... happy wife, happy life. Many thanks."

  • "We went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Early bird dining works well for us. It's nice and quiet with excellent service. If you want "Top Chef" food quality, you gotta try all their dishes here. We had very tasty scallops, sablefish, short ribs and cheesecake. All dishes are well balanced with a hint of spice and aroma to experience. I think we both finished it all with nothing left on the plate. :) We will definitely visit again to try their weekend brunch one day."

  • "We are familiar with Jean-Georges' reputation as a spectacular chef. The restaurant did not disappoint in any way. The service was impeccable, and the food divine. Appropriate (French!) portions with many options and delectable flavor. We had lunch, but this is a restaurant not to be missed, no matter what meal you are having"

  • "I dined her with colleagues for lunch to celebrate a promotion and the food was excellent. Out waiter was pleasant and accomodating without being over the top. The only criticism I have having been here several times is that the advertised 50min lunch is never 50mins, so leave at least and hour and a half if you want to eat."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Had the Power Lunch and have to say the portions are way too small. I understand portion size when it comes to fine dining but this is gouging. Unfortunate as everything else was good overall."

  • "Brunch was delightful. We made a special trip to have the 3-course brunch menu for a birthday celebration. Discovered it was removed for the summer. Regardless, the food quality was fabulous, however would not recommend the Pandan Waffle, but everything else was amazing. Our server was equally exceptional."

  • "One of our party is in a wheelchair and the staff here handled her with grce and care. The food was excellent - menu easy to reaad. We also had very good drinks. The waitstaff were attentive and fast. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening!"

  • "Third time's the charm. I had lunch here last week as well, but this time it was better. The restaurant was quieter this time, so the staff were less busy and more attentive. The food still takes some time to bring out, but it was faster than usual. Overall an excellent restaurant."

  • "I must say it was brunch! My guest and I were seated , in spite of the restaurant being virtually empty, at a table hemmed in on one side a great pillar. Let me start by saying that the service was exemplary! I started with a great soup, chili pea, the smallest portion in the largest bowl possible. My main course was Dungebss Crab Benedict. It was barely warm and tasteless. I will not comment on my guests food because I didn't taste it. Good wine list. The restaurant is in a hotel and has all the hallmarks of such, bland, soulless and needs to excude a passion for something. Thank you for your goodness for the service."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Very good restaurant. The service was very pleasant but a little slow. The food was slow to be brought out too, but everything tasted good. We only had time to order one entree."

  • "I think I discovered the best Nicoise Salad in town"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "We enjoyed the sable fish and halibut, which were both fabulous! We started with a 1/2 bottle of the Louis Roderer Champagne with 1/2 dozen oysters and the tuna tartare, all excellent! It was a little quiet, but we did have an early seating. Our server was excellent as well."

  • "The Shangri-La hotel in Vancouver is a beautiful hotel. The restaurant is very spacious and there is a good distance away from the other tables. It was a very sunny day so there was a lot of natural light coming into the restaurant. Service was excellent and attentive, although the food was slow to be brought out. We ordered the halibut and the steelhead. It was nothing spectacular, especially for the price we are paying for. It was a good meal, great for a quick lunch. Overall we had a pleasant time."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "If you love great food, a beautiful setting and attentive service, you will love Jean-Georges. I was excited to find that Vancouver had this restaurant after having visited the New York and Shanghai locations and experiencing the amazing food there. We had the tasting menu which allowed us to try 5 different courses, each equally interesting and delicious."

  • "The menu is great ... I had the spicy lunch with egg plant last time and I love it. This time, I had the halibut which was nicely done and the dessert (the sorbet) with a lime sauce is so refreshing and light!"

  • "Used to be one of our favourites and have gone to Market for years. With only three tables seated in the patio for dinner -- service was incredibly uneven. Server disappeared and waited 15 minutes before taking our dinner order. For reference, a couple that sat down at the same time as us already started on their appetizers before our order was taken. At the 20 minute mark, had to ask for some bread. Once ordered, we were told that the tasting menu could only be accessed if both diners were partaking. Sat a few more minutes and decided that the special evening we had planned was not going to be ruined by the restaurant. Discussed briefly with the Maitre'D who graciously offered to cover the wine. "

  • "Hmmm what to say ... the food and wine we chose were delicious and satisfying! Unfortunately the snooty service and relentless up-sell attempts were transparent and irritating. At the end of the day, we are all customers paying good money ($$$) to visit your restaurant (on a slow night I might add). We deserve to be treated as such. Could have done without the waiters snarky remarks! Doubt we will be returning to "Market"."

  • "Finally made it out to brunch after friends' recommendation. Ordered the fixed price lunch, with the seared scallop appie, sea bass entree, and the rhubarb torte and basil ice cream for dessert. The appie and sea bass were absolutely delicious, but the dessert stole the show: the basil ice cream was so refreshing! Service was excellent - I downed 4 glasses of water before the first course arrived (had just run a half marathon and was dehydrated), without ever asking for a refill. Service was prompt and uninterruptive, which allowed us to converse with our friends. Will definitely go back and try the Farmer's Market brunch and other menu items."

  • "I expected outstanding service and did not get it. When we arrived there was no one who offered to take our coats. My coat spent the evening on the floor as we were in a booth/table with no room to put it anywhere else! The service was very slow at the beginning and improved somewhat as the evening went on. The food was very good but not superb, which is what I was expecting. It was fairly noisy and it was difficult to hear all the conversations going on at our table. It was a family dinner to celebrate our daughter's birthday and we are a family that shares conversations a lot."

  • "Wonderful food but lapses in discretion and attention to special requests risked ruining an evening with surprises. Not all items pre-identified on the web menu were available. Gaps in service (like loudly dumping a handful of cutlery into a drawer), failure to explain a course, and others unbecoming of a restaurant of this calibre and reputation. Food mostly wonderful, although one dessert on tasting menu - thai fruit - looked more suitable for a 10-yo birthday party than for adult diners. "

  • "After receiving an email from Market, we were excited to give the 'Spice Market' menu a try. All four of us had the $29 3-course tasting menu. Although good, none of us were "wowed" by any of the dishes (found the food at the actual NYC Spice Market amazing, so expectations were somewhat high). We were satisfied with the service and the food in general, but did have one disappointment. Our reservation was for 1pm, and they had already run out of one of the appetizer options (the tuna) - if that's such a popular choice, you would think they would better prepare for that. We were not even the last seating.."

  • "always great for business gathering! quiet, great ambience, and quality services never fails. The food was not as good as years ago when they first open though, so that might need a bit of picking up again. Otherwise, all good!"

  • "Short ribs and sablefish recommended by the server were excellent. I was disappointed when the menu online did not quite match what was presented. We are undecided if we would go back, kind of doubt it as there are so many other places with as good, if not better, selection of menu items. Not for vegans or vegetarians. There was a gluten free menu that we found out about later when the server meant to give us the dessert menu. She never did come back with the actual dessert menu!"
