Great food, service, atmosphereLocate centrally on 4th street, it's a great location to dine, within easy reach of most of the best hotels in the city center. The staff is well dressed, attentive, the menu is really strong. Top notch bar and wine list.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful place to dine anytimeI had a party of 12. The service was quick and intuitive and non intrusive.
The food was excellent, and artistically appealing.
It was an excellent and enjoyable evening.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had not visited MarketplaceWe had not visited Marketplace before but I am really glad we made it the destination for my wife's birthday. The food was special and the presentation was a delight for the eyes. There is a wine for every price point and every palate on the wine list.
It will be a destination for us when we are downtown.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this resturant wish theyLove this resturant wish they would have a little more of a appetizer selection.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed dining outside byEnjoyed dining outside by the water fall. Server was excellent. I will return.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMDelcisious food, great serviceI was looking for a good restaurant to eat while on a business trip in Louisville. Marketplace definitely lived up to my expectations. Situated a little further on from the downtown 4th street part scene. Outside area was great, food was delicious (I had the gnocchi) and service was excellent. Highly recommended!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNice placeWe loved the place, live music was fun....food was great.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVery pleased with MarketplaceWe chose Marketplace because of its incredibly close location to the Palace theater. It is conveniently located on Fourth Street in the midst of activity. The food was very good --- from appetizer of goat cheese to the cesar salad to the sea bass. I often judge a restaurant on the cesar --- and Marketplace's was wonderful!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMarketplace is a great restaurant,Marketplace is a great restaurant, and one of the best looking restaurants anywhere. The food was great. The table was ready when we arrived. The restaurant was very busy because of Kentucky Derby weekend. There were a few loose ends. We had to ask for steak knives and there was no bread brought to the table, Excusable considering the large crowd, but did cause the 4 rather than 5 star for service.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemFood fabulous; wait staff spot on, ambience - best in Louisville5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful food, Beautiful settingThe original paintings, art glass chandeliers, and other artistic touches complement an excellent menu executed perfectly. A large soaring space that could seem overwhelming is instead somehow cozy and romantic. Slight ding for pomme frites being a little too salty, but that's a matter of taste.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphereWe are frequent flyers at The Marketplace. We enjoy the quaint atmosphere so much, we made a reservation for our wedding anniversary dinner. Initially we were a little disappointed, as the restaurant was nearly empty when we came in, yet our request for a table in a certain area of the restaurant(made well in advance) was not honored. However, the service was very good, our anniversary was recognized, and the celebration was good. The food is always tasty, and the bartender makes the best cocktails in town. We were offered chocolates on the house in lieu of desert, and the evening was a great celebration of our anniversary.
We will definitely keep the Marketplace high on our favorite dining places in Louisville.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe jazz group was wonderful.The jazz group was wonderful. Great female singer.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDerby Clock: it's time to eat here!A great spot for a business lunch or a romantic dinner. My lunch companion and I had the burger and the "special" fried chicken -- but bites were exchanged! The deserts are great, too, if you celebrating something special. One of my favorite downtown Louisville spots (across from the famous Derby Clock!).3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFine dining re-defined!Every time we dine at the Marketplace, we become more fond of the place. Eclectic decorations, romantic atmosphere ( especially after the pianist comes in), great food, and great service. The bartender makes the best cocktail ever.
The service is great, attentive but not " in your face", fast, and friendly.
We will definitely be back.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMService and food were superb.Service and food were superb. Great atmosphere and ambiance.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMarketplace always delightsAnother great dinner at Marketplace! We are big foodies and this is one of our favorites. This time was for my husband's birthday- everything was spot-on! Thanks for a great evening.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper PlaceExcellent service and a knowledgeable waiter. The cheese plate was super and the entrees were excellent, creative, and delicious.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinnerMy second time here and just as good as the first.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMa must tryWe had great service. We called to say we were running a few minutes behind & they had no problem accommodating us. The only issue was they seem to be out of a lot of items on their menu. The waitress did bring a dessert to us that was on the house & it was excellent. I will try them again because the food we did have was good & it's a fun spot to dine. We try a new restaurant almost every weekend & I have to say the staff was very good. This is not always the case with new dining in Louisville. I would say this a must try in the Lou restaurant scene.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNice dining placeGreat place to dine: nice atmosphere, good food, attentive service.
We will definitely be back.2/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe most like Marketplace becauseWe most like Marketplace because of it's location--next door to the Brown/opera. We were hesitant to go because our last two visits were not great. However, they have redeemed themselves. Our food was delicious and service was perfect. The restaurant is beautiful and makes for a very special evening.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time for dining at MarketplacFirst time for dining at Marketplace and we were pleasantly surprised with the ambiance and service. The food was very good and we will recommend the Marketplace to our friends.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNice placeWe enjoyed dining at the Marketplace. The food was good, especially the salads, and the service was prompt. The wine list needs a little more variety, and kale doesn't really need to be on EVERY dish, but overall everything was tasty and we enjoyed our evening.1/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
