Diner Reviews
  • "Haven't you always wanted a "go t"o neighborhood restaurant where you could slip in for comfort food and be recognized as a returning local patron? Farm to table, killer warm bread served by Albert who brings you sliced lemon for water without your asking, and Liz spoiling you with a surprise dessert for your friend's birthday........run, don't walk to MarketHouse!"

  • "We have been to Markethouse on several occasions. This was the first time since they had changed chefs and menus (which was probably 9-12 months ago). The menu is more limited than at most restaurants, with probably a dozen entrees. We invited friends to join us (their first trip there) and all were pleased with their choices. The food was delicious, the service good."

  • "I was looking forward to our dinner at Market House. I'd eaten lunch there severlal times and always enjoyed it. Our dinner began with some flavorless hummus. Then came the main entree--we both ordered fish, with wild rice on the side. it was passable but nothing exceptional. Like the appetizer, the main dish had little flavor. The restaurant redeemed itself a bit with a lemon cake dessert ala mode. The bill was higher than we normally pay. I much appreciated the low volume noise iin the restaurant, which added to the quality of the evening. But in general, I felt let down by this dining experience."

  • "This restaurant would have rated higher, if it weren't for the hostess. She was in a hurry and seemed flustered, it could have been her first holiday working??? Our waiter and the food were good, for a pre fixe meal."

  • "We were in the city for Thanksgiving weekend, and this place was mentioned in some article on-line. The price for the meal was optimal, and the menu posted on their web-site helped us to make final decision. Food was delicious and the service pleasant and timely."

  • "My family and I came here last year for Thanksgiving, and we were so impressed with the service and food that we decided to come back again this year for Thanksgiving! Our reservation was at 5:15, and we were seated promptly when we arrived. It took 15 minutes for our server to greet us at our table. We placed our order (4 Thanksgiving dinner specials!) and it came out relatively quickly. Although the food presentation was nice, my food was barely lukewarm. However, I was not able to voice my concerns because our server never came back to the table to check in with us - he literally disappeared until we had to go hunting him down for our check. The food overall was good, but I was very disappointed by the customer service."

  • "Before making a reservation for Thanksgiving Dinner at Market House, I reviewed their website and read many earlier reviews. This was to be our first visit. My family of four enjoyed an excellent Thanksgiving dinner that was traditional, with evidence of Market House's signature flair. The food and presentation were both outstanding. The service we received from Juan was friendly but professional. The decor and ambiance of Market House is true to their stated mission. All four of us agree, we will select Market House again."

  • "We booked Thanksgiving here for 4 persons, had never been here before Everyone was welcoming, the ambience was fine, and the foor very good! There was an option for the one person that does not like turkey, but for the turkey lovers, everyone was happy. Everything was tasty, and the pumpkin bread pudding was to die for! We will probably be back, maybe make this a Thanksgiving tradition"

  • "This was the second time my wife and I ate at the MarketHouse. We discovered the restaurant three years ago when we were in Chicago for a visit, and we enjoyed that experience so much that we made sure we went again when business brought us back to the city. We both enjoyed our meal, but it wasn't as special as we remembered. The food was uneven -- excellent salads; the Mac and Cheese was to die for but the pot pie wasn't; and the chocolate desert was pedestrian -- as was the service, which was good to begin with but close to unacceptable by the end. We would still recommend the restaurant highly to anyone visiting Chicago, but order the more expensive entrees and be prepared to pay extra for just about everything, including bread."

  • "Not an especially good value - food was just OK - waiter was attentive, but there's only so much he can do with a lackluster menu and mediocre coming out of the kitchen"

  • "My husband and I had a wonderful dining experience at Markethouse. We love their salads: both the chop salad and wedge salad. They are delicious and taste so fresh. We both had the MarketHouse burger and thoroughly enjoyed them. And we had to make room for the Butterscotch Bread Pudding dessert. It is really hard to pass up desserts at MarketHouse. Our waiter, Jose, was excellent. All in all, we had a lovely evening and are anxious to return."

  • "Not the fanciest place around, but the food was great as was the service. It was quiet enough to be able to talk without raising your voice. The prices were very fair. It is a wonderful place for everyday comfort food."

  • ""I love the relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Lamb chops was amazing and the Sweet Potato Pecan Bread was outstanding. We loved the Flat Bread. Our server Juan was well-timed and friendly,""

  • "It's just really good food, not spectacular, but really good and consistent. Favorites have been the Mac and cheese, Brussels sprouts, fish and chips, and definitely go with the butterscotch bread pudding for dessert."

  • "We just ordered basic eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast, so it's hard to say the food was outstanding - it was good for what it was. I believe they were short staffed, so our server never really came back after serving our food, no refill on water, had to ask for the check. Had a good experience last year when we were there, but this year was just ok."

  • "Markethouse was adaquate for or dining needs. We enjoyed our meals: chicken pot pie and ribs very much. The drinks did not stand up to the level of the food. The service was okay. The ambiance and décor were perfect for their theme."

  • "The menu was very limited & slightly overpriced. Upon giving my order of the battered shrimp dinner to our server- he remarked that the shrimp dinner only contained 3 shrimp and was more of an appetizer option. Disappointed & yet perplexed, I wondered why it was even offered as a "dinner" selection. My sister ordered the fish dinner that had a salad on the side. The salad was already pre-tossed with an overly salty salad dressing. Overall not a horrible experience, but nothing about it makes me want to go back for more. Sadly, a very forgettable experience."
