The clam chowder soup was
The clam chowder soup was delicious! From the time we were seated to departing, the experience was everything we were looking for. It was a very enjoyable lunch.

This is a great option for
This is a great option for dining in San Francisco weather you are staying at the Four Seasons or not. This time, we were not due to a medical conference my wife was attending at a different hotel but we made a point to have at least one dinner there. As always, it was great. The food is well prepared and the staff does not know how to say no to any special requests! The wait staff is excellent as in most Four Seasons. Overall, highly recommended.

Good for a first date. A little confusing winding your way through the hotel to make it to the restaurant, but nothing too complex.

The service is wonderful;
The service is wonderful; it is in general a quiet venue with a lovely view of a slice of the city and it's food is high quality, less invention than attention to doing things right. Hors d'oeuvres and main courses were all excellent. All three of us were pleased.

the NEW noisy"inplace"
The entire Staff, and especially the SERVICE and the SERVERS are STILL all the BEST in the city, sadly tho with all the money spent on the new look its noisey,the ambience and elegance from the previous look of the restaurant are gone. It is SO severe it feels more like a cafeteria rather than one of SF's premier dinging establishments..One would think with all the money spent on the new look they would have paid some attention to the ambience.. The tables look more like cutting blocks bought from home depot. The whole look is borderline industrial, and way to severe , table clothes would cut down the noise.. who ever designed the NEW LOOK has NO idea what a restaurant of this quality should present.

delicious lunch/ impeccable service
four of us were given a semi private area because one of our guests was hearing impaired. the location with a market st view and amazing service level was perfect. the food (crab and shrimp louis salads, ahi tuna sandwich, tomato soups, seafood chowder) were wonderful and nuanced. the apple pie w/ ice cream capped off the lunch perfectly. make this your getaway downtown!

Always a favorite spot in SF. The food is always good, and appreciate the kitchen can accommodate special requests.
The new decor is a bit more casual, but still very comfortable.

Perfect for business breakfast
I met a client here and it was perfect for a breakfast meeting: elegant but not stuffy and the food was excellent. I had a very simple fruit plate with amazing honey yoghurt and wonderful banana bread. The fruit itself was 'wow'. Granted, you get what you pay for, but it was excellent. Unobtrusive service and plenty of space between tables so you could talk without feeling overheard.

the new look is noisy, and
the new look is noisy, and the atmosphere is cold and uninviting considering they spent a LOT of money fixing something that wasn't broken... ,fortunately the SERVICE is still totally classy and the best in the city with a superior confident staff always there to assist the diner..

Forget Seasons, MKT Is Here!
Having dined at Seasons monthly since it opened, I was prepared to hate MKT. Ambiance is #1 to me at a restaurant––the food's gotta be better than what I'd make at home, so the room better be as nice.
Gone are the lavishly extravagant furniture & decor. But hello! So is the stuffy drapery––the windows are HUGE, the views exponentially amplified–just glorious! The butcher-block tables are retro-chic, the comfortable chairs are fine; diners can focus on friends, food, service, & view.
There is a more industrial vibe now––go to any hotspot, that's the current look; interior designs have to change, it's not a bad thing.
Enjoy the always superb service, enjoy the decent and sometimes memorable menu. The room will grow on you, I promise!

New menu, same attentive service
I'm not that big on "family style" eating, and I would argue the potions were not family style size, but it's great to eat in a place that encourages tastings. The ambience is definitely better after dark, and while part of me misses the formality of the old Seasons restaurant, the new MKT is comfortable and boasts a great array of menu items. The server and staff was spot on, but the kitchen was a little slow considering the low complexity of dishes we ordered and the amount of patrons at the time. Scallops were excellent, loved the heirloom tomato and burrata salad, and if you're still hungry, the cheesecake and bananas foster ice cream sandwich are notable.

Hip, simple yet elegant cuisine
I had dined at this spot previously (when it was Seasons), and I was eagerly awaiting the opening of MKT. I recommend starting in the adjacent bar and having one of their well crafted signature cocktails.
MKT is "speakeasy-esque", with a modern yet comfortable decor overlooking Market Street and the city. The staff is overly accommodating (in true Four Seasons fashion), and I felt like they were constantly looking after us. Several recommendations were given, and a full explanation of the menu (along with a backstory on the dishes) were given, a nice touch for foodies.
The cuisine is family style, and I would recommend sharing. Every dish we tried was excellent.

This was our second year having our anniv dinner at mkt.As usual..the food and service was outstanding. The view was great. We definately will return again..the restaraunt made us a beautiful dessert and took our picture. A wonderful evening..

This is the 5th time we have
This is the 5th time we have dined at the Four Seasons. All have been outstanding. The new decor is less formal, but has no impact on the food & service. It might be a bit louder because of the all wood theme. Personally, I liked the formal decor better, but this won't stop us from visiting on future visits to San Francisco.

Never a disappointment!
I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. It has been one of my favorites for about 10 years.
We started with Crab stuffed fried zucchini blossoms, and the Osso Bucco Ravioli. To die for!!!!
My husband and I then shared the Boar and NY Steak dishes. I could eat that boar dish over and over again...it was so good, I wished I hadn't shared LOL!!!

Perfect spot for a spicy root
As a non-drinker I often like to try places known for their extensive drinks menus to see if they cater for the alcoholically-challenged amongst us. MKT brew their own ginger beer and offer it up as a Spicy Root which came with a warning that this batch might be a bit strong but bring it on for my taste. It was a fine brew indeed. The food menu is all locally sourced and I opted for a carnivore's delight of charcuterie platter and then the Duck Fat Burger. My friend had the pork chop and left dribbling with his memories of the fine cut. The burger was fried in the duck fat so its crispy exterior had a unique flavour and was smothered in finely grated bandaged wrapped cheddar which was strong and bitey! Great meal. Staff exceptional

A real gem
MKT Restaurant was a wonderful experience First, for lunch; then, for dinner the next day. The food is very fresh, the waitstaff is friendly and attentive without being obtrusive and they were very flexible on our missing or dinner reservation time. The bar area was very lively, offered a wine tasting by a vineyard, and was a lot of fun. The dinner menu offered a lot of options and everyone enjoyed their meals a lot. We'll be returning very soon.

Excellent Food - So So Service
First the food was excellent. Melt in your mouth, savor every bite good. However, for an excellent restaurant with prices to match, we were less than impressed with the service. The bus person splashed water when refilling our glasses, but most notably, it took our waiter over 20 minutes to run our card and return to the table for a signature. It was like he took a break right in the middle of a lunch hour. I am sure this is the exception, not the rule, but frustrating none the less.

Delightful Staff and Great Food
Our Server, Tawnia, made our experience at the new MKT delightful. We had not been here since the change from Seasons to MKT and found everything to be in keeping with Four Seasons quality. A great time.

In the Window
Sat in the corner, at the window, looking out on downtown SF - nice. Food was perfect - those mashed potatoes keep appearing in my dreams!

Had reservation at Michael
Had reservation at Michael Mina's. Unbearable noise level so we left . MKT at the Four Seasons saved the night. Food and service were what one expects at a Four Season's hotel.We ate there 2 nights in a row.

Excellent for lunch
I recently attended MKT during a conference. The restaurant was extremely busy but the service and food did not suffer at all. Great spot for business lunch.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pricey, but Business Worthy
The Market Restaurant at the Four Seasons lives up to quality and service that you expect with the Four Seasons Brand. The Service is really top notch and beyond what we normally expect in the US for a restaurant of this type. The food is also excellent but comes with a price that is hefty. This place is perfectly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the Moscone Center and perfect for relatively quiet business meetings.

Perfect business lunch
Excellent food and service. Perfect atmosphere for a power lunch.

I had the extreme pleasure of dining at the MKT the week of September 23, 2013, with two different groups. I made the reservations for a lunch and a breakfast for a group of 8 and 12 respectively. Excellent setting for customer meeting. The food is excellent as well as the service. The noise level is a bit loud depending on where you are seated in the restaurant.

Staff very attentive. My cousin's pork chop was overcooked and another was prepared perfectly!

Elegant but small portions
Comfortable atmospher and nice service. The waiters know what their doing, but reception was quite confused. MKT had a wedding event there during brunch and they seemed a little overwhelmed. The brunch was nice, but portions are SUPER SMALL! We all had potatoes included in our breakfast and each of us got probably 4-5 small potatoes. We all left wanting more.

Our anniversary breakfast
Our anniversary breakfast was very tasty. The eggs benedict super delicious and the hash (according to the husband) very good.

The redesigned MKT within the Four Seasons Hotel in SF is simply a delightful and sumptuous experience for brunch. My daughter and I were looking for a "grown up" experience for her 17th birthday brunch and this was the best choice. The open floor plan, huge windows and cosmopolitan feel of the space and surroundings was just what my daughter wanted to mark this special day. She felt grown up, feted and the staff did a great job at wishing her a happy birthday with little touches like a greeting when we checked in with the hostess to the salutation written on her breakfast plate. The food was also really good and fresh. I appreciated the server's honest opinion on what to order and we enjoyed our selections immensely.

Wow, beautiful restaurant, excellent service and the food was amazing. Great place to have lunch or dinner. Very nice menu and great wine selection.

New Four Seasons bar and restaurant
The bar area is very cozy and vibrant. The restaurant in my opinion is not as private as it used to be but the whole area remake is a success. The food is very good as always. Glad to be able to have lunch there regularly.

Great location to host customers
The MKT team were incredibly accommodating. We had several schedule changes and a need to rush food so that my customers could attend other events. It was a great restaurant, located right near Moscone, where we could quickly get away to have meetings without an immense amount of noise. Thanks!
