  • "We always enjoy the amazing service, informed waitstaff and delicious food at Market. This is a great place to go for a business lunch. I have never been there for dinner but am sure it would be wonderful too."

  • "First time dining at the restaurant, had a reservation, but we were seated in the bar area. Very disappointed...the ambience in the table cloth dining area looked significantly nicer. Food was fine but nothing was exceptional."

  • "small and cozy, with rustic stone walls, this st helena restaurant provides surprisingly good food. the lobster roll was a delightful summer treat. the food was well-prepared and served on modern art works. definitely worth a re-visit."

  • "Food was truly wonderful! However there is one window that seats two or three but it's right next to the waiter station. I felt like someone was standing there all the time. Also who's table was this? We were seated by someone, asked for drinks and told about specials by someone, order taken by someone else. It's as if no one knew who was supposed to take ownership of our service. Forget all of that if you are there just for the food as it was fantastic"

  • "First Time, read a lot of reviews and it did not disappoint. I had the alaskan halibut, and the best part wasn't it was smothered in a lot of other flavors and seasoning just nicely cooked and sitting on a lightly seasoned bed of small cuts of veggies , awesome. I'm no gourmet but that was a well rounded dish- nothing was overpowered. everything was wonderful."

  • "This was our second time eating at Market; there will be a third. Service was great; waiter remembered us from last visit of 2 months prior. Food was still well prepared and delicious. My wife and I love to each order an entree which the other would also like so we can share and double our tasting/eating experience."

  • "Market on Main street in St. Helena is a great location and a beautifully simple, historic building. The food is excellent, with so many tempting starters it was hard to decide on just two. Specialty cocktails were just OK. But it was the SERVICE that stole the night!! We were treated like royalty. Complimentary champagne for just our mention of our anniversary. The Maitre'd noticed my wife put on her jacket and immediately told us he would turn down the air. Our server Stephanie was energetic, timely and just outstanding. Her support team was like watching choreography. They were stealthy in their efficiency! Great food, great setting, outstanding service! We will return!!"

  • "Being a Napa local, we wanted to try a new place for our anniversary and had heard many good things about Market... ALL TRUE.. We enjoyed every aspect from the beautiful rock walls, wonderful menu, great background music and friendly service. We were quickly greeted and seated upon arrival; we ordered the ceasar salad, filet and halibut dinners with a 1/2 order of the mac-n-cheese to share. All were truly a taste buds delight and portioned perfectly so we could enjoy dessert. The lava cake and butterscotch pudding... heaven. This is definatley a place to try."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner at Market. Love that their policy is free corkage! We had so many bottles of wonderful wine that we had picked up at wine tastings that day, it was great to be able to choose one to take along for dinner and have it there without a corkage fee! It did kind of involve making a meal decision beforehand, but with their online menu, that wasn't a problem. They were also very attentive to my issues with gluten intolerance which I appreciated very much. It was a lovely meal, and our second time there while in the valley."

  • "again a wonderful meal at market. The staff all around does a top notch job!"

  • "We came to Market for dinner on our wedding night. We eloped to Napa and were unfamiliar with the area. After looking through some mixed reviews, we chose Market since it was nearby. Also, the no corkage fee swayed us as we brought a special bottle of wine from our engagement party. We were a bit early since several of the shops we wanted to visit closed up earlier than we anticipated. They were still able to get us right in and didn't give us the stink eye for showing up early. Our server, Stephanie (I think) was delightful and gave us great recommendations. She even took pictures for us. The food was EXCELLENT and Stephanie even brought out a sweet treat on a decorated plate to congratulate us. We were so pleased! Thank you!!"

  • "Very good food, restful ambience, good service. I would have done 4.5 stars for the food if available. Everything really is fine here; my personal preference would be for a more location specific ambience. It was a gorgeous Napa Valley day, but we could have been anywhere given the decor. I do understand that a middle of the block site doesn't offer many configuration possibilities."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We would consider Market to be a "must" when dining in the wine country. Excellent menu and wine list, very reasonable prices, and flawless service! We will be back again!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Always good but the kitchen was a little off tonight. Dine at Market often so when things are off, which rarely happens, it's noticeable. That being said, food and service are always wonderful."

  • "I took my husband to Market for Father's Day because we love going there. We have always had great food, great service and it is affordable. I know they were busy because of Father's Day, but it took us almost 1 hour to be served our food. Once we got it it was delicious! Service is one of the most important parts of a restaurant."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This was my third visit to this restaurant & I choose to take my Dad here for Father's Day brunch based on my previous experiences. However, the food & service were very disappointing. I ordered the huevos rancheros, as I had on my previous two visits. I ordered my egg poached hard, as I always do. I had to send the order back x2 before the egg was finally poached so it wasn't runny. You would think after the first time sending it back, they would get it right. My father ordered the corn beef hash. He also had to send his meal back, as the corn beef was burned & chewy. We were also never asked if we wanted refills on our bloody marys, during on 1.5 hour visit. Also, when we arrived, the restaurant was out of coffee & coffee cups @ 11 am."

  • "Great, with the exception of waiting 15 - 20 min to pay with credit card, came back twice saying our card was declined and to call the bank kept trying came back a third time saying it was their machine, finally resolved"

  • "This is a terrific restaurant!!! Everything about it - from the service to the food - is top notch. In fact, we loved it so much that we cancelled another reservation to come back a second time."

  • "We had a fine dinner at Market. Delicious calimari and chopped salad. Entrees were fine, not great. The fish was a bit over done and the fried chicken, a leg and thigh, fine. Surprised that font serve a regular 1/2 chicken. The atmosphere is fine enough, maybe a little tired. The wait staff are excellent and our main waiter was friendly, genuinely welcoming and helpful on describing itens on the menu."

  • "Excellent in every way. Hard to beat. You will not be disappointed."

  • "This nice little Italian place in St. Helena is quite inviting. Quiet, good food - great mac & cheese - with polite staff and a warm ambiance. Market generously charged no corkage fee for the wine which we brought, having just come from a winery, but Market's own wine list is good. Good choice for a quick lunch or dinner."

  • "My husband and I ate here, based on the excellent reviews ! We were not disappointed. The food was fabulous....our meat dishes, the meat was so tender, it fell off the bones. Vegetables cooked to perfection, and very attentive servers. Beautiful rock walls inside the restaraunt and really reasonably priced......especially for Napa Valley ! "

  • "lobster bisque and fresh fish entree very ordinary and bland but we were hungry. My fried chicken, mashed potatoes, spinach and gravy arrived with very hot chicken cold potatoes, stringy (long stems) spinach (also lukewarm), a small pool of tepid gravy. However, when I sliced right into the middle of the thigh to the bone a terrible smell came up even though the meat was cooked to the bone. the plate was graciously taken back and a new one promised - took a very long time and finally arrived hot but very greasy and thigh was raw in the middle - entree was comped and on we go"
