Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "We live part time in the upper Napa Valley. Market has become our "go to" restaurant in St. Helena for consistently well conceived, well executed food and one of the best curated, and best value, wine lists in Northern California. We've never been disappointed in a meal here. The specials are always great. Recently had a peach based salad with cornichons that was fantastic. Although they never charge any corkage fee I recommend consulting Eddie, the manager and sommelier, for wine selections. The list is very local, changes often and is generally priced only $5 or $10 above not winery prices, but retail prices which are lower. And you can't find many of these wines anywhere besides the winery."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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!!"

  • "Unassuming place, perky servers, but gosh the food was good -- perhaps best veggie burger ever, wonderful rhubarb crisp, and world-class mac and cheese, all reasonably priced."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!!"
