Market Restaurant and Bar
Always have loved Market;Always have loved Market; fresh and inspired cuisine.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGood PickMy husband and I always enjoy the food and great serviceThe only drawback is how close the tables are to one another. Bummer!!!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent graduation mealThe best restaurant I have been to in San Diego. The bleu cheese souffle we started out with was delicious paired with the raspberry salad. My mom had the short ribs which was the best entree on the table. The meat was so tender and flavorful... ah. And the dessert. The coconut tapioca with green tea ice cream was SPLENDID! It was just a fantastic food, and fantastic service. Also the corn bread was scrumptious. :)6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food!This place has an interesting menu, outstanding presentation and excellent dishes. We focused on seafood and it did not disappoint. Its a bit pricey, what with being on the way home to Rancho Santa Fe, but its worth it if you can afford it.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Market Restaurant tantalizesThe Market Restaurant tantalizes the eyes and the palate. Each dish is presented like a painting complete with flavors and fragrances that exceed all expectation. It is an overall dining pleasure.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMy new favorite!The Yellowtail Tartare was outstanding. I ordered the beef tenderloin and my husband ordered the lamb, both were excellent. In addition to the great food the service was also outstanding. Make sure you bring cash to tip the complimentary valet. I like to try a new restaurant every month, after a few disappointments this place really hit the spot and will be added to my list of favorite places to eat!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways SuperbConsistently one of the best fine dining restaurants in San Diego County. Greeting staff are the best, service attentive and professional, food presentation photo worthy. Bravo.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDO NOT MISS OUTThis is hands down my new favorite restaurant!!! We started off with the soft shell crab tempura and yellowtail tartar. We knew we were in for a treat after our first bites. Mom doesn't even like soft shell crab and she devoured it. For dinner I had the duo of beef, a wagyu filet, and braised short ribs. TO DIE FOR!!! Had the bacon soufflé with a huge slice of crispy bacon on top. I wish I had the dudes job that is in charge of bacon. Dad had lamb with a peach Demi glaze thing. Mom had the lobster that was on special. Everything had petite veggies of some sort. Dessert we had the s'mores, and the blueberry creme in filot dough.
All in all you cannot go wrong with this place. You will not be disappointed. I promise!!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSushi is only at the bar.
AmazingSushi is only at the bar.
Amazing service from everyone!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great Meal at The MarketWe love The Market. It is an expensive treat so we can only go once or twice a year. I do wish they had a small salad for a starter. Since we do not go very often we forget how big the starters are and that we need to share them. The combination of well trained servers who really know the menu and the wine list, plus the wonderful food make a very enjoyable evening.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food, poor waiter 4 1st timeLove this spot, but for the first time, didnt love our waiter...he felt compelled to take a lot of breaks and went MIA for extended periods. Unusual for this place. Of course, the tip was already built into the check so he didnt have much of an incentive. Other than that, food was terrific, as always!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLives up to it's Reputation.A foodie paradise. Every bite has so much flavor. Our waiter was very patient with our indecision and made good recommendations.
Loved the Chipotle Lemon Drop Martini.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AM5 for dinner pleaseWent with colleagues from work to celebrate a milestone. The food was terrific, wagu beef, short ribs, lobster the veggies from Chino Farms, all was tasty and well presented. There is a terrific wine list and I only regret we could not open more bottles, sometimes the variety is too tempting. Location is odd of course, near the Polo Fields, and no view and the place is a little noisy, but we had a nice corner table and could talk comfortably. The price is premium, both food and wine on the expensive side, but also excellent so choose your way, well fed and broke or go somewhere else. Portions are not excessive which I prefer.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent mealIt was one of best meals I've ever had!! The food was excellent.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst class mealWe really enjoyed our meal here. Outstanding food and top level service. If you want something more formal ask for the red room.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best.Market hits it on every level. Their tasting menu with wine pairing is always perfect. The attention to levels of tastes in each course is perfect. Vegetables are intertwined in a Kelleresque manner and throughout each entree put in front of the patron. They give new heights to desert. I generally am not a desert person but at Market I look forward to it. I will never think about eating ice cream without kumquats ever again. The sommelier creates ideal pairings and I cannot think of a meal at Market without the wines. In addition the servers know their stuff and are grade A++. They are knowledgeable about the foods, ingredients, and wines. All in all you have to go to Market - by far the best dining experience in San Diego county.
-GVK5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best of San DiegoThe food was sublime, the service was superb, and the evening was wonderful. Market is perfection, pure and simple.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden gemMy husband and I enjoyed an amazing dinner this last weekend. We truly enjoyed the amazing tasting and wine pairing.

We are so happy with our history of dining at Market we will be going twice more this week...we honestly don't consider any other restaurant when we spend time in the San Diego area.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingBefore visiting San Diego, I did a lot of research in to the top chefs in the area. Carl Schroeder did not disappoint! My partner and I visited Market on our last evening in the area and tried the tasting menu with wine pairings. We made sure to select opposite items so we could try as much of the menu as possible. Wow. Every bite was perfect. If you're a foodie, don't miss this one.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Restaurant in So. Calif.This restaurant is a gem! I live in Orange County and when I come down to San Diego I love going to Market. The service is excellent. They give us immediate attention, but they don't rush you. Always have great specials. I've had several of their menu choices and everything I've tasted is outstanding. I love that they change their menu so you always have something new to look forward to.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent mealGreat food. Creative dishes. Great flavors. We picked this place while visiting from Houston because the chef is a James Beard finalist. We were not disappointed!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDel Mar HidawayExcellent menu and wine list. The staff went out of their way to take care of our party.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite San Diego restaurantOur favorite San Diego restaurant since it opened.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMy family and I have eatenMy family and I have eaten here numerous times and never had anything less than a terrific meal with outstanding service. The menu changes depending on what is available, so we always seem to find some dishes that we haven't tried before. That way each meal is unique, and we keep wanting to come back for more.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Food, Awesome Service!We just recently ate at The Market for the first time, and we were absolutely blown away at how amazing the food tasted! We love going to new places to see how they are, and we are so glad that we came to The Market. Our server was Terra (sp?), and she was very knowledgeable, friendly, and very professional. I wanted to be daring and try one of their "Adventurous White Wines" that I had never even heard of, but I wanted to make sure that it would pair well with their Lobster Special. Terra gave me an excellent recommendation, because it paired beautifully with the Lobster and all of the veggies it came with. I can't wait until the next time we eat there! I also can't wait to try their sushi!!! Eat at The Market! You won't regret it!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visitThis was our second visit and it will become one of our favorites.

Selection on the menu was outstanding. The food of the highest quality and taste. The service was warm, unobtrusive, and added a fun experience to our meal. Desserts also outstanding.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBright, flavorful, inventive dishesThe tasting menu is the way to go. You get to taste quite a few things and you are very full at the end. Everything is fresh and inventive and so flavorful. I am seriously - seriously - looking for another restaurant in San Diego that compares. I haven't yet found it. (Accepting suggestions). The price tag is higher than your regular everyday place (our bill was $200 for 2 including tip, no alcohol) but being someone who sometimes suffers from shoppers remorse, I have no regrets dropping money here. It's just that good and so worth it. And who wants to waste money on food that isnt good? I really wish I could ask what the chef's favorite restaurants are. I bet he'd have some suggestions for me!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery component of my mealEvery component of my meal was excellent from the shrimp amuse bouche to the house made caramel presented with the check. Well done!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service was outstanding.Food and service was outstanding. We were a group of 7 and everyone enjoyed their meal.

Our wonderful waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and great about making sure a couple of people in our group with special dietary needs had meals that substituted or avoided anything problematic. Every course was exceptional; creative combinations with layered flavors culminating in fantastic flavors. Superb!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA varying fresh ingredientA varying fresh ingredient meunu means you will always find something tantilizing.

All food we experienced from complimentary chefs choice appetizer through dessert was delicious. Wine list was impressive and servers suggestion for my zinfandel was perfect. We are willing to pay high prices for great food and received a great value here. Tables were a bit too close and noise level was high for for a romantic dinner, but totally worth the foodie experience.

Food was good, but didn't measure up to prices.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were very impressed withWe were very impressed with the chef's adventurous menu. The restaurant is casual but has un upscale feel to it. One of the things they are proud of! I had their beet and goat cheese salad that included pink grapefruit, something that was delicious. They also use local ingredients! The service was also very good. Very enjoyable experience!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will be back!!!!What a pleasant surprise! For years this location has been the kiss of death but Market has been successful here. Why? Food, service and little touches such as a complimentary amuse and homemade caramels presented with the check. Our server was wonderful and all her suggestions were perfect. The hamachi appetizer, cabernet short ribs and the market bars were wonderful. Eager to try other things on our next visit.
Have already recommended it to friends and want to bring people with us next time.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTop flight dining experienceOne of our favorite experiences from the moment we walked in the door. Great setting and a great staff. The bar staff was excellent and the drinks were fantastic. Service was top notch and the food from some of the yellow-tail appetizers to the salads, to the main courses (duckbreast and ginger shrimp dumplings) were creative but accessible and wonderful. Cannot recommend highly enough. Particularly for the price-point.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a favorite restaurantThis is a favorite restaurant for us - one of the best (if not the best) in San Diego area; certainly compares favorably with notable restaurants throughout the US and Europe especially in terms of the quality and creativity of the food preparation2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent menu selection andExcellent menu selection and very good service. Enjoyed a nice SD Restaurant Week meal during January 2013. Our only complaint is the tables are fairly close together and so if you're next to a loud party you are right in the middle of their conversation. Staff is very welcoming the moment you enter.1/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
