Diner Reviews
  • "The food was very tasty, but the portions were small. We are small eaters. So even then, we found the portions too small."

  • "Love your 1/2 price wine nights (Tue/Wed). My prawn dish was so flavourful and my wife enjoyed a tasty salad with free range chicken. The unfinished wine bottle was re-corked and looking forward to trying your lunch selections"

  • "The food was delicious but several types of beer on the menu were not available (in transition to new brands). The restaurant was very noisy due to a private party of about 30 guests, so difficult to have conversation. Decor is interesting but a bit cold, and all of the wood contributes to noise as there is no baffling. Items to try: Prawns on sweet potato mash; corn bread; mussels. The oysters come in a can but do not be put off - they are delicious especially with the smoked gouda on toast. Scallops were good but not a large enough menu item to fill an average man...would need an additional dish."

  • "We came for a birthday dinner and it was really delicious. We ordered a lot of food and everything was beautifully plated. The portions aren't too big so you can share a few dishes without over eating. We ALL said "WOW!" after the first bite. If you haven't been, then you HAVE to go!!! YUM YUMMMMMM"

  • "Sitting inside MRKT the other night, I imagined I was actually in a cool city for the first time in months. Just a few blocks from my apartment, MRKT has a unique ambiance all its own, with wooden blocks and slats comprising the entire decor, including an arched ceiling that really makes the place feel cozy. Food was nice, although I only got as far as the charcuterie board and some drinks--we were just out to sit in a warm place and relax for a bit rather than have a full meal. Pear martini is phenomenal; about as sweet and subtle as actually biting into a ripe pear, which was very refreshing. Would like to hit up their lunch menu, which looks extremely reasonable."

  • "We went for dinner on a Thursday and it wasn't busy, we had made a reservation with open table. The food and service were both great!! We chose this restaurant as one of our friends is celiac and they have a number of glutton free options. Would definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "Very disappointed. We made our reservation for 930 on Saturday, as my boyfriend drove 3 hours to get to Edmonton, we had to make it later. The first thing out server said upon greeting is was that their kitchen will be closing in 45 minutes, which to me I find as just rude, I served for a better part of a decade and know that it never takes 45 minutes for a couple to order. The menu was very limited so we decided to go with the special, shrimp and scallop in a "bisque" which was essentially a few crustations in a purée soup. We also ordered the smoked oisters (which our server warned us came on a can upon ordering) and should have caught on to what she was trying to hint not to get."

  • "I went here for an evening out. Walking in, it had a nice trendy feel to it. Clearly caters to the downtown business person/ young professional crowd. Food was tasty and I felt the portion sizes were decent given the prices. What they have in terms of selection of beer is disappointing but they had a reasonably adequate wine list and their cocktails were pretty good as well. Definitely would come back here for a date/ night out with friends."

  • "Went with a group of 10 for a birthday. Service was great and food was amazing. Couldn't believe how great the food smelled when we walked in. Will be back for sure. If you haven't been its definitely worth try!"

  • "Valentine's Day evening dining out is most often a challenge to find a restaurant as it is the prime date night. So, the better choice was to book a table the day after and what better place than our favorite downtown casual hang-out - Mrkt. As usual the food was excellent, perfect sharing dishes to choose from. Emily - our server was terrific - not hovering over us but just there at the right moments. This is truly a gem and kudos to Carla - greatest soups in town!"

  • "I had a wonderful time here on Valentine's Day. The set menu with wine pairing made the evening so relaxing. Everything was perfectly cooked and the meal was well paced. If eating here not on Valentine's Day I recommend the charcuterie, it's excellent."

  • "Loved the set menu for Valentine's Day. Very romantic atmosphere and great location!"

  • "I reserved a table on Saturday night. after being seated at the communal table (unbeknownst to me following my reservation), our server sternly told us that we had until 8:15, for the table. This left our group with feeling rushed. I understand that this is standard practice for restaurants that are in high demand; however, there were at least two empty tables all evening! We were never offered any of these tables. The food was fantastic, but I will think twice about having a special event or evening in which we do not want to be limited to a time limit."

  • "We had booked a table so were surprised when we were seated at the communal one! eventually we relaxed and ended up enjoyed talking to the other guests either side of us. The proscutto dish was a stand out ,as was the cheese fondue,smoked salmon, with the green stemmed olives. The boneless ribs we didn't enjoy as much. The wine list wasn't that extensive ,the french red by the glass I wanted wasn't available. The service was excellent . We enjoyed the experience offered here. Loved the tasting plates and next time hope to find something a bit more spicy on the menu (possibly Moroccan or something with chilli oil).Have to say the diner next to us ordered the Mussels ,they did look yummy in a cream sauce ,piled high with fresh crusty bread."

  • "Food and service was very good but portion size was not adequate for a dinner plate for the price. Especially the large plate beef ribs that actually comes with a single rib."

  • "I made a reservation in advance for 8 people- service was great, atmosphere was welcoming and cozy! They had a lovely wine list with quite the diversity. Their menu was okay, very small limiting choices. The portion size was small and I felt I didn't get enough bang for my buck. This wouldn't be my "all night location" but I do recommend it for a nice, romantic date night or a chill place before you venture into another location."

  • "Went to MRKT with some girlfriends for my birthday. I had been once before and had a great time,and this time did not disappoint. Great food (mussels, apps) and fantastic dessert (gluten free!). The service was also very good. Overall, a great night, would recommend to anyone interested in a low-key night with good ambiance. will be back!"

  • "The Beef Stroganoff and Beef with Coleslaw were great. Don't underestimate the small portions as they are very heavy. I would still like to see an expanded beer selection though."

  • "We were 10 minutes late and the called to make sure we were on our way - thanks for holding the table for us and not giving it away, like most restaurants would do. The food was great - we loved the mussels! Very relaxing Friday night with some sharing plates and a glass of wine. Thanks"

  • "2013 and not one vegan entre on the menu. A bacon dish cannot be made without bacon. In 1980 I could order a Caesar salad without bacon and the chef would do it, not at mrkt. Too many new eateries are offering the same limited menu and are half filled on a Saturday night. I guess its easier to see than do."

  • "Service at this restaurant was excellent. Very knowledgeable staff and accommodating to one of our diners who had food allergies. I had the sauted prawns on sweet potato mash. This was very tasty. My other friend had a quinoa salad with ahi tuna and she reported that it was just ok. Homemade almond bark for dessert was the highlight. Definately worth a try!"
