    A group of 6 of us enjoyed the evening outside on deck....several from out of town. Each of us tried a different entrée and shared several of them. The area provided plenty of room for a relaxed party atmosphere and permitted all to exchange discussions and comical stories. All the food was excellent and the service great.

    Love enjoying dinner outside during the end of summer at marketstreet, but there is not table lighting especially for the second outdoor dining area that drops down several stairs. We could not see our food or eachother. Maybe some candles or even the umbrella lighting would be fantastic.

    The halibut fish and chips has always been one of my favorites and I've ordered it quite often. The batter for the fish has changed and it's not nearly as good. It used to be light and airy, Now it's thick and such a heavy coating for the fish that that delicate flavor of the halibut if all but lost.

    I have been to this restuarant maybe 8-10 times over the last 8 years and it has seemingly slid slowly towards the point of becoming very over priced for what seems to be very mediocre food. This last visit had the added misfortune of terribly slow service, we were never offered a drinks list and food was extraordinarily slow to arrive at the table. No mas!

    I took advantage of a gift card to treat myself to a quiet evening where I could enjoy the beautiful Utah mountain scenery with a glass of wine and some delicious food. It was thoroughly enjoyable. I know I'll be back. The only thing that kept my visit from being 100% perfect was that I had wanted an outdoor table, but after waiting for half an hour for one to become available I finally settled on eating inside. Obviously I wasn't the only one who wanted to take advantage of the lovely warm evening. But the windows inside were tall and wide and I was still able to enjoy the sun setting on the mountains and then the moon coming up over them. Inside or out, it was a lovely experience.

    This was one of my late husband's favorite places. We ate our meal his style "lots of appetizers, seafood chowder,full meal, great bread, topped off with dessert". He would have approved. It also would have been our 50th wedding anniversary and somehow being there made it seem like he was there.....at least in spirit.

    The only place to go where you know seafood is fresh. Reasonable pricing given how much food prices have risen. Friendly staff. It was beautiful evening so we chose outdoor dining. Inside music too loud & would have been difficult for conversation. When I'm dining out for special occasion or entertaining out of town guests I go to Market Street Grill. Added plus casual dress ok.

    A nice establishment overall. As usual the food was prepared well. The service was not what I've grown accustomed to. Unfortunately, each time I return it is a reminder that the pricing exceeds the value. I think they need to remember that there are other options available. For now, I'll likely return from time to time, just not in my top 10 list of destinations.

    Dissapointing
    Dined on 8/2/2014
    The prices for the food you get were way way too high. The shrimp appetizer looked and tasted like it came out of a can and was tiny. The "mixed green salad" was small containing the cores of Iceberg Lettuce, only 2 slices of cucumber and 2 cherry tomatoes. Not what I would consider a mixed green salad. The clam chowder was bland and too watery. The french fries that came with the entree were the thin economy style that you can buy at the grocery store. The prime rib was over cooked and tasted bland. The fried halibut however, was amazing with superb moist halibut and very crunchy tempura batter. The food prices say "high class good quality restaurant", but the food and the atmosphere say "ha ha sucker!"

    Market Street Grill is my top choice of restaurants in SLC, whether it's at Cottonwood, Riverton, up by the U or downtown. The food is consistently well prepared and is delicious. The sourdough bread is always special, and I haven't eaten better clam chowder or had a fresher dinner salad. I take friends and family there whenever possible. I recommend making reservations to avoid a long wait at peak times.

    We visited this restaurant for a business dinner, there were six of us attending on a Tuesday evening. We were set at the table very quickly, but waited five minutes before the server even arrived to take our drink order. The server kept forgetting our drinks and other requests. Luckily we were all having great conversation and the lack of service was not as bad as it could have been. The food was excellent, the chef ever disappoints. I would recommend this for a lunch and not a dinner. Our dinner took 2 1/2 hours, so do not go there if you are pressed for time.

    It was a dark and stormy night. Well it wasn't so dark but it was stormy, we got there at about 5:30 pm so it was great that you have a place to drop off my wife close to the door while I parked the car. We had reservations which was nice and there was no waiting to get seated. The service and the food was very good. You don't ask if the restaurant was clean, it was. You don't ask if the menu prices were a consideration in our choice to choose your restaurant, it was. It was nice to see your menu and prices online before we came.

    The salmon and tuna were excellent. The vegetables were covered in too much salt and butter. The bread was a little dry. The clam chowder tasted great but I was lacking actual clams. My wife had a mixed green salad that she described as gross. It was Iceberg lettuce with few vegetables slathered with dressing. She left most of it on her plate. The ambiance and service were very nice.

    After checking in, we had to wait 5 minutes for our table. They asked if we'd like to be in or out. We said in because it was one of those 100+ days. After 5 min the took us to an outdoor patio table. Okay, we decided to laugh a little and roll with it. We sat at our outdoor table For 20 minutes and never saw or heard from a server. Because we had pre purchased tickets for a movie, and because the other guests were looking equally neglected and upset, we had to leave. I have to admit this is a first for this restaurant. They are usually on top of things. Next time we will try the south Jordan market street.

    It seems like every summer when we want to dine on the beautiful patio, it is closed. We understand there are times when it is actually raining or too windy, but the manager here seems to close the patio down just because of a forecast of isolated showers. When we arrived, it was sunny with just a few clouds. We had made reservations for the patio, but the manager said it was closed due to weather. He was quite abrupt and the waiter said they actually like it when the patio is closed because it's cooler for them inside. They were not very customer oriented in our opinion and could take a lesson from Tuscany but not listening to weathermen who are wrong 50% of the time at least and just looking up at the sky!

    It was my parents 50th wedding anniversary party. They love surf n turf so we picked market street. They had 1 server for 4 tables in our area. Rather than asking if the person wanted to substitute the veggie or pay the extra $5 for 4 sprigs of asparagus no information was given. My parents surf and turf were cold, my sisters halibut was breaded instead of grilled 2 orders of prime rib came out twice over cooked, my husbands steak was cold and flavorless. Luckily the rest of our party was a success but everyone says "except for the dinner" the party was amazing. My husband and I visited about a month ago and his halibut was so greasy he couldn't finish if. Unfortunately we have not had good experiences recently.

    We've always enjoyed Markey Street but were disappointed at last dinner. They had no idea how to make a Vodka Collins, the crab-stuffed mushrooms had no crab (just bread crumbs and cheese, for $12!). The service was OK, but just OK. Thankfully, the entrees were better but not enough to create a desire to return for dinner. Even their signature clam chowder was a step down from what it has been in the past. Seek a good dinner elsewhere.

    We had a very enjoyable Father's Day brunch. The window table with a view of the creek was especially nice. Unfortunately we were seated next to a large table with several kids who were not very well behaved and kept coming over to our table. Their parents didn't take much notice of their wandering and at one point our server asked them to go back to their table. We've been to all the Market Street restaurants and have enjoyed them all and will continue to come back for great food and great service. Our server was very attentive and very pleasant.

    Unfortunately we arrived 35 minutes late for our reservations. I apologized for missing our reservations and was about to ask how soon they could seat us. We were greeted rudely by a man named Nico who told us that obviously our reservation had been canceled. He said he would see if he could fit us in. I think the three hostesses standing by were appalled by how he treated us. We could see many open tables in the restaurant. I was not asking for them to hold our reservation but I did expect to be treated with respect. Unfortunately missing a reservation happens. If my daughter had not had a birthday coupon she wanted to use we would have left the restaurant.

    We visit the Market Street Grill fairly regularly, enjoying the seasonal seafood specials and the standard menu alike. They cook fish well, and have some unique seafood combination plates. I haven't ever ordered their steaks, but I hear they are good too. The decor is fun and lively, and the location has large windows looking out on Big cottonwood creek gorge, and is nestled up against the Wasatch mountains. Service on our recent visit was very good - the server knowledgeable and asked us appropriate questions that made the meal better.
