Diner Reviews
  • "My husband loves the champagne battered fish and chips. The fish is so light and tasty. Do order the butterscotch pudding for dessert. It's so good you hate having to share it. Their menu for brunch is quite extensive. We continue to enjoy this lovely restaurant"

  • "Market is our go to restaurant for out of town guest or special occasions for my wife and I. We always ask for Alfie as our server, but he was not working Saturday night. I believe our server was Jay and he was amazing and more than up to the task of taking care of us and our guests. Also, as we were dining Alfie stopped in with his wife (they were on a date) and he took time to stop by our table to say "HI" and meet our friends. Market and its people take the time to treat everyone like a rock star."

  • "St. Helena is a convenient dinner location if you have been wine tasting on Spring Mountain, which we had been doing. The Market is on Main street which is great to walk and shop also. We arrived early and they seated us anyway with a great window view. Everybody was so friendly. Great food suggestions. We loved the snapper special and the trout. A desert to die for also. Highly recommended and excellent value as it is not as costly as some of the Napa valley standards."

  • "A must try in St. Helena. Food was delicious. The watermelon salad and lobster roll as starters were taste treats. And my lamb shank was equally good. My wife had the short ribs, which were as good as the ones at Tra Vigne. Beautiful presentation and excellent service."

  • "The setting was very nice and the scallops were excellent."

  • "We've eaten at Market on two separate trips to the wine country and we thoroughly enjoy this gem in St. Helena. The place is casual with upscale food that is priced well. And, there is NO corkage fee. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the food is off the charts. We will return every chance we get, no matter where we are staying. This is a must-visit place."

  • "Very good food. When they say American comfort food, believe it!"
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "We had not been to Napa Valley in over five years and this was recommended by someone who lives there. I expected it to be good, but it was fantastic. I will come back again. My wife had the filet and I had a prawn pasta dish that was out of this world. The place exceeded our expectations. We have eaten out at many restaurants and this one exceeded all expectations. Great local find."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Market's food is consistently good; some great. Their American classics are beyond yummy, and their Mac and Cheese the best I ever had, their watermelon salad and burrata is also way better than average. The décor is warm, inviting and yet casual so it suits me and my husband well. We come here at least twice a year and are never disappointed. I also think it is very nice of them to let guests bring their own wine, without a corkage fee, since many guests may have wine tasted all day and have their hearts set on their newest find. I recommend to everyone, except unappreciative snobs."

  • "Had a wonderful experience at Market. This little gem tucked in there on main st in St Helena. Everything we ate that night was incredible. From the lobster rolls to the fried chicken. The service couldn't have been better. Very friendly and attentive. I recommend highly."

  • "We were recommended to this restaurant and were not disappointed. The food and presentation were wonderful. The sorbet we both had at end of our meal was incredible! The service was attentive but not overpowering."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "We booked this restaurant based on a review from trip advisor. While they're usually pretty accurate, it's never a guarantee. Well, both my wife and I have to say that this was an excellent choice. The food was top notch (even for foodies), and the service was outstanding. Props go to our waiter Ozzy. It is outstanding. Be sure to ask for him."

  • "Market was wonderful, the best restaurant we went to in the Napa area! We had the lobster rolls, delicious and then the watermelon salad awesome! My husband had the short ribs and I had the halibut both delicious and the dessert was fantastic also. We were very pleased will visit again!"

  • "While not a typical "kids restaurant", we were welcomed and felt very comfortable with our 9 and 12 year old boys. Both boys had the Fried Chicken and even our picky eater cleaned the plate. We finished the meal with table side S'mores and Butterscotch Pudding! Staff is friendly and service was great."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Excellent food, lobster rolls to start & butterscotch pudding to finish we're awesome. That said, service was lacking. Market was full, yes, but simple things like water refills were missed. Farmstead has similar food but much better service."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Decided to try Market based on reviews. We were very pleased with the quality on both food and service; absolutely loved the strawberry-rhubarb crisp for dessert. Many happy conversations taking place-smiles all around. Service was cheerful, knowledgable and attentive without being over-bearing. I'd be happy to visit again for lunch or dinner."

  • "If you're craving inventive delicious comfort food--think beef short ribs braised in zinfandel accompanied by fantastic truffled mashed potatoes, or fried chicken, or homemade butterscotch pudding--supported by a well edited wine list, this is your place. Prices are mid to high $20s for main courses, so not over the top. And, no corkage fee if you bring your own wine."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "The braised short ribs were outstanding, and the rack of lamb was superb. The waiter was very friendly and enthusiastic. Very complete wine list. We had a great meal. Just a little on the loud side."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "I know that there are lots of good restaurants in St Helena but on a recent visit, we didn't want to leave things to chance so we made a reservation in advance instead of just wandering into what might have looked great. The food here was very good and the service was efficient and professional. Definitely a good choice but the place was not terribly vibrant. You can count on good food here but for lunch, I might try something more relaxed next time."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "One of our favorite Napa Valley restaurants. Food and service are always delicious and personable. One issue is the air-conditioning, a bit drafty when it kicks in."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Eddy meets you at the door and sets the stage for the wonderful dining experience. He is warm, personable and friendly - one of the reasons we enjoy returning. The fried chicken was delicious. Calamari is always a treat. Two salad entrees were also delicious. For consistently excellent food and outstanding service - plus being greeted at the door by Eddy - this is the place to go!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Enjoyed a very good meal on 7/16. Small plates were great to try and share. Wine list great but we brought in our own bottle and no corkage fee. Quiet and great service. Soft shell crab was the highlight."

  • "Had a great dinner at Market in St Helena while there with friends. As a homeowner in the Valley, really nice to have Market as a local favorite. Beef short ribs, cornbread, and lightly fried prawns all excellent. The GM was all over the room taking great care of the diners. Jesse our server did a great job, too."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Market was a welcome new find for us. The area is blessed with destination restaurants owned by celebrity chefs. Market doesn't quite meet that standard, yet offers excellent food and wine at acceptable prices. I witnessed obvious local regulars dining there showing this place has a consistent following. We'll be back when in St. Helena."
