At MARKET, our fresh ingredient philosophy starts in our kitchen, where we bake our own breads daily, cure our own meats, do our own butchering, make our own cheese, homemade sodas, and grow our own herbs, micro greens and select vegetables. MARKET is the first restaurant in Calgary to use an internal home garden, the Urban Cultivator, where we can grow more than 16 different varieties of heirloom seeds year round. We change our menu regularly so we can cook in harmony with the changing seasons and ensure the freshest and best tasting ingredients possible

Diner Reviews
  • "We visited Market for a celebration dinner and were not disappointed. The service was extremely polite and helpful and the food was wonderful!"
    Dined on 8/26/2014
  • "We were able to make a last minute reservation, which was nice, but qhen we were seated (as a table of 2) we were sat right beside an incredibly noisy table. Strange considering there were many empty tables around the restaurant. Service was good, but slow. Our 2 appetizers came out in a good time, but our entrees took quite a while. So long in fact that they gave us a third free appy to tide us over until our meal arrived. But then our meals came BEFORE the app to tide us over did. Food quality was high though, when we finally got it. We tried 3 apps, 2 entrees and 1 dessert. All were yummy. For the drinks, our server recommended the non alcoholic grapefruit soda. Definitely a best seller there! Great choice."

  • "Unique world class food. As good as anything in Calgary. Favorite go-to place. Prices are very reasonable for quality of food."

  • "Despite a previous positive experience our recent experience with Market was disappointing. The appetizer was good but the entrée special (Lamb Duo) was almost inedible. Both my wife's and my leg of lamb was undercooked and tough. We should have sent the entrees back rather than ask for the sharper knives that were provided. Although the staff responded well, expressing their apologies and crediting us for half of one entrée, we were still disappointed that this would occur. After all of that, we had to send the bill back to be corrected as we were charged for a drink we didn't have.Overall, a greater attention to detail (especially in the kitchen) could have prevented our disappointing experience."

  • "Spent our anniversary at the market. Our server was swift and knowledgeable. Water cups were kept full and I drank a lot of water. We had the mussels & pork to start. There was a depth to the flavours. My husband had the salmon along with the mushroom tortellini. It was well cooked and the tortellini was very rich and delicious. I had the duck tacos which I would recommend highly. The flavours again had a lot if depth. We tried their in house made sodas...delicious! The dessert we tried was the donuts and again fresh and fabulous. The server treated us to some chocolates in honour of our anniversary...the passion fruit one is a must have."

  • "The food was tasty, interesting, fun. When we eat out, we like to have things that we don't have at home. Market met that expectation. Sadly, too expensive for us to dine there more than occasionally."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Loved it! From the adorable decor, to the eclectic mix of servers, Market is that perfect mix of upscale casual. We started with one of their specials, the lamb tartar, and it was bursting with flavor and had a perfect amount of heat. Our waiter reccomended the Shellfish and Pork Belly for two and wow, one of the best plates of food I have had the pleasure of dismantling. Every component on the board fit together beautifully, and the massive piece of pork belly just melted in our mouths. Highly reccomended!!"

  • "Perfect lunch! Went seafood shared the salt springs mussels, the best ! Dining companion doesn't eat pork so skipped that in the mussels But by the comments of 3 servers that was a bad choice. One even mentioned perhaps leave that guy at home next time. Good fun an now one must go back for the sausage, made in house. Fish/Salmon tacos delicious washed down with a Pinot. Tuna salad looked pretty darn good. Finish things off with gluten free apricot something something & espresso"

  • "Was visiting Calgary and took a friend to try Market on the recommendation of a friend (chef in Vancouver who had heard good things). Decor is interesting, dairy country farm meets modern, gives it a funky/hip vibe. Service was great, included in description of menu/specials some of the details of the sourcing of ingredients. Server was knowledgeable. We had two specials (goose and halibut) and both were excellently prepared. Most definitely would return when I'm back in town."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "I loved everything about this place ever since a friend recommended it to me. The food, oh boy, they use local, fresh, seasonal foods, they always seem to amaze me with the different sensational dishes they serve. I have come here on more than one occasion... And I want to always come back. I tell everyone I know, and anyone new to Calgary... They must go here. It's something you just need to experience, my words will not give it the justice it deserves."

  • "My family had a lovely time at MARKET. After seeing the Munchies episode on VICE, I made the executive decision of booking a week in advance (whenever I call days earlier, it gets booked solid). The wait was worth it. Notable things to order: Pork belly and seafood platter, and the roasted goose that was their special that night. Most memorable dishes I've had in Calgary. The dessert isn't something to skip out either. Doughnuts were fantastic. :) I'd definitely go back for more."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "The food was absolutely fantastic. The appetizers were original and delicious, and the main course was out of this world! I'm so glad we finally made it to Market, which I've named my favourite restaurant in Calgary."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We cam early on Friday (long weekend) and we were still able to get a table on the patio. Food was great. I had the special (leg of Lamb) and my partner had the Angus beef. Our server explained what was on our plate and how it was prepared"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "... You've officially found what you're looking for. The ambiance and hospitality of this place are friendly and welcoming instead of stern and pretentious like a lot of other fine dining spots I have been too. The food is some of the best I've had in this city! The price is amazing, you definitely get your value, and you're always going to leave full. There isn't one thing I can recommend over the other on the menu as everything has so much flavor and hard work put into it, and every bite has it's own different place I heaven."

    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "The ambiance is casual but clean and sophisticated (fresh, again?). Attentive service. The food was very tasty (best salad I've had in years...could it have been the nut soil?). I would definitely recommend."

  • "Roommate took me out to dinner for my actual birthday after having a most brutal day prior. Was only planning for something quick and was not in much of a celebrating mode. Yet, was pleasantly overcome by the amazing feast which the meal turned out to become. Our server complemented and supplemented our meal with not only a scrumptious salad, but also surprised us with delectable dessert. To say the least, it was most amazing unexpected gracious gift to receive for one who does love her food and was not planning on partake in much. Thank you to Melissa and the rest of the staff at Market! It was a night where the food was outstanding, service well orchestrated and company a blessing, ending up to be a most fantastic evening overall."

  • "My wife and I went to Market for our anniversary and had a wonderful meal. The food was fresh with vibrant flavors joined in unexpected and delightful combinations. The service was top notch, with the staff making us feel special during our celebration. They were warm and friendly, without being too present or intrusive. Market deserves all the praise it has been receiving in the media and is a wonderful addition to the Calgary food scene."

  • "Upon reading some reviews we were a little unsure of how good the food would be we were pleasantly surprised it was great Would highly recommend this restaurant We had the lamb special that night and loved it the meatballs were so tasty and the salmon was cooked perfectly will be back"

  • "Sat on the patio. The interior is absolutely beautiful but the patio is something to be desired. Overall good service and great food, though I would like to see a better decor transition from inside to outside and not be heckled by the homeless while I eat"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The homemade burger buns are delicious ... but the burger itself was tasteless and unfortunately the bun was soggy; my sister-in-law's salmon meal was overly salty; my brother asked to substitute the parm fries with his burger and was charged an extra $8, so he paid $31 for his soggy burger. My niece ordered the vegetarian gnocchi, which she really enjoyed and said was spectacular. I also ordered a beet salad which I enjoyed. Overall though, we were disappointed, and wouldn't choose to come back here or recommend it to others."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "One of the best meals I've had in a long time. Our server Mark was passionate about serving. We shared everything we ordered - appetizers (2 were the night's special) and 1 main along with a dessert and a bottle of wine and everything was great! Can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "as many of the calgary eateries, way over priced! I was on a first date and didn't walk out of there under $150. service was good, portions, so-so, oysters were very weak, voted best restaurant? I don't get it to be honest. I eat out 3-5 times per week and this eatery was very average with a high price tag."

  • "They dropped their delicious poutine and now 2 trips in a row have been marred by pretentious and unfriendly service by different servers - not going back!"

  • "My husband and I wanted to try a new restaurant and Market delivered. The food was awesome, and we love the concept. The portions were quite a bit bigger than we expected, so we ended up with way too much food. Tried to eat everything, and really wanted to because it was all so delicious, but we couldn't do it! The sweet potato beignets were amazing. And the oven roasted carrots - wow! Could have done without the other guests at a nearby table - I guess they really thought they should have had our table. They asked the server to move us so they could sit at our table! Didn't know people that self centered really existed."

  • "Have dined here in the past ... But never had room for dessert! This time we decided to have appies drinks and desserts which were all amazing! Brought friends with us and sat on the patio ... We all loved it! Duck tacos and mussels were fantastic and full of flavor! Topped the night off with desserts ... Mint ice cream with chocolate cake, strawberry pavlova and pb and j donuts! Mmmmmmmm absolutely awesome ..."

  • "My girlfriend and I wanted to go to Market for ages. Great reviews from friends and coworkers. Finally got there for a date night and Market definitely lived up to our expectations and then some. We had the duck tacos to start and we're blown away. If you're splitting them with someone, definitely pay extra for the additional taco. You won't be disappointed that you did. For the entre, we ordered the pork belly and shellfish for 2. It was amazing!!! A great variety of food on the platter and it all works together so well no matter what combination you put together. Unfortunately we were too full to order dessert but the donuts come highly recommended. I will definitely be ordering them next time. An overall great dining experience."

  • "This was my second time at Market. We ordered an appetizer (muscles), drinks (pimm's cups) and two entrees (salmon + chicken). The drinks were great but the entrees took over an hour even though the restaurant was not overly busy. We were compensated for the wait with..... popcorn. The salmon was mediocre, a dry and overcooked. The chicken was good, and the risotto was cooked correctly, but it was too salty to finish it. For the price of the food, we were expecting much better. There are other restaurants near 17th ave that have consistent quality with better pricing."

  • "We had a superb server who helped my friend and I with all of our cleanse dietary needs and allergies. The kitchen produced an AMAZING beef dish with all the trimmings which were fantastic. It was nice to eat out an not have poached fish and steamed greens. We will definitely return and bring friends."

  • "MARKET is bright, fun, and casual. The service was very good - friendly and knowledgeable. The food was well prepared and the presentation was good. We had the burger and pork tenderloin, with Parmesan fries. Everything was a bit different from the basic, with great sides. Everything was excellent. The teas were also good and a bit different! We would definitely recommend MARKET to others!"

  • "Wasn't sure about this place because of the low rate, but the food was good and the service wasn't bad either! We had Oysters-MARKET accompaniments and PORK BELLY & SCALLOPS. It was bit pricy, but it's worth it!! I really like their home made drink. I had ice tea and my friend had a ginger ale. I would recommend if you are dining on 17th Ave. and try something new!"
