    the food here is amazing. We had the duck tacos and the burger/fries. Even the ketchup was worth the trip. Can't wait to return to try more of their menu.

    Enjoyed a fabulous Anniversary dinner with my parents - usually at the Eden at the Rimrock Resort for that past 14 years. Calgary was a more convenient location this year - and the Market exceeded our expectations on every level for Calgary dining. Thank you for making such a special 46th Anniversary with family so memorable. I will be back with friends, family and business partners to showcase your success.

    Dave Bohati, the executive chef, served us our appetizers. It was like meeting a celebrity, and it was the day after he won Gold Medal Plates Calgary. That says a lot about how much the restaurant cares about the guest. Food is incredible, service is amazing and each time I go, I find more reasons to love this restaurant and the staff. I love watching the kitchen activity and it's nice to have amazing food for reasonable prices. The staff really care about the guest experience and will do everything to make it amazing each time. Market is a gem, and Calgary is lucky to have this restaurant and team part of our food scene, they are changing the landscape of the food community in Calgary!

    Finally tried Market... not sure what took me so long, but it was fantastic! The service was great and the daily rotating features are delicious. The only miss was the sweet potato beignets, but hey, it was a solid attempt. Dessert bonbons are a great way to end the meal!

    the old bar space has been nicely transformed into a pleasing open area restaurant. The service was prompt and friendly but they didn't highlight any of the items on the daily menu. The wine selection is reasonable though a bit higher priced. We had the "schnitzel" (an interesting deep fried twist on the real item with potatoes and very nice grain mustard) and the tuna salad (nice pieces of tuna). We had our food quickly (and hot) and were done in an hour.

    Based on a number of positive reviews we tried this restaurant for dinner. Unfortunately the food did not live up to the hype. As a matter of fact, the food was actually awful. There so many better restaurants in Calagary, so don't bother with Market.

    I was at Market about a month ago and had a fantastic time. The food and service were great. Because of this, I suggested Market for a birthday dinner and the experience couldn't have been more opposite. The service was lackluster at best, the waitress mocked the table for 3 people ordering the same thing. The menu was limited, not many vegetarian options. I ordered gnocchi and was told it had mushrooms, no mushrooms to be found on my plate, I will say it was delicious. I'm not sure I'd recommend Market after this last trip.

    Our server was great and explained the menu very well. That was our first time at Market so we weren't sure what to expect. The food was fantastic and so were the drinks. It was a little loud and the tables are close together so you can hear the conversations of the people next to you. A group of guys sitting close by to us were loud and obnoxious but we just tuned them out. Other than that it was a great experience!

    Everything about our experience was wonderful, our server was lovely and knowledgeable. We were told when we arrived there was only one order of the crab and pork peepholes left so we ordered them immediatley. Our server returned to tell us there wasn't a full order left but they had two perogies that the kitchen sent out for us to try- which were delicious! We had the pasta dish with lamb meatballs, the side of beets, and the chorizo and octopus. Everything was incredible but the octopus was my favourite! The only thing I could say is that the restaurant was very bright and I would have liked a more "romantic" vibe. Thanks Market!

    I find it noteworthy that every time I eat at Market I have the rewarding sensation of fresh life-nurturing food in my tummy. I feel encouraged to devour each new bite as every dish strikes a balance of site grown herbs, local veg and protein. Of course the donuts are simply in a food group of their own, and a little Market decadence to punctuate a great meal is always delightful.

    Market was amazing. I was there with a group of 6 people and we all ate different dishes. Each dish was delicious. I loved the atmosphere, there is the main dining plus a bar you can sit at, it is separated in a unique way, half the restaurant is white, the other half black (in the bar area). The service was also great, attentive but not overbearing. Would definitely eat here again!

    Ive been to Market many times. This time they went above and beyond. The front knew it was our anniversary, we had free preseco, the server knew it was our anniversary, the food was amazing (as always) and they even gave us a small discount on our bill, because it was our anniversary. Market made our celebration perfect. It was the cherry on top. Thank you.

    My wife and I came to Market for our one year wedding anniversary; we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to have the staff buy us Champaign to congratulate us on our avinversary. To say the food was amazing would be an understatement. I had the Char Angus Steak and my wife the homemade pasta. We could go back day after day and still be amazed with the unique flavours of each dish. Later on, one of the Chefs came out to talk to congratulate us and ask us how the meal was. We will definitely be going back, not because of the small niceties Market provided, but because this experience was everything we could have imagined.

    This was my second visit to Market and, like the first visit, it started with the mussels...because they may be the best I've had ever! Also, like my first visit, the waitress was very attentive and personable....she brought 3 different tastes of wine to ensure we chose one that we liked. Two of our foursome selected the beef tenderloin dish which comes with super yummy arugula mashed potatoes...I rarely eat potatoes but had to have two bites of these. The plates are so lovely...it's almost a shame to mess them up with a fork...BUT so worth it. Definitely, eat at Market.

    The hot spot of the moment. Food was pretty good but not original. Tables were really close together which made for some awkward communication. Every table was full and the noise level at times very high that you couldn't hear across your own table. Service was fast and food was great. Would go back but ask for a different table not along the outside wall.

    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.
