The food is fantastic, although the appetizer portion sizes and prices are inconsistent. The hummus plate is a generous serving size for a small group and appropriately priced, but the empanadas, which cost the same as the hummus plate, are TINY! They need to be more consistent with giving value for the price. The drinks are exceptional and they certainly do not skimp on the alcohol! The service is hit and miss. The staff is very friendly, when you can get their attention. They need to be more present.

Service was great. Food was good and portions were fine. It was a bit loud for date conversation, but the ambient noise wasn't a deal killer. Overall a really nice experience.

most of the food was great,
most of the food was great, but the roasted chicken, which was not marketed as being overly spicy, was extremely HOT. My friend who ate some of it (then had to stop) was sweating profusely from the heat of the dish. It was just TOO HOT.
Salmon was delicious, as was everything else. And the tollhouse cookie sundae was a great finisher.

Great Sunday afternoon at Market!
We attended Market for our quarterly gathering of highschool friends. It was during one of the first warm days of Spring. The patio was perfect! We had bottomless mimosas, which were fabulous. Some of us had the BBQ option where others made choices off the brunch nenu. The food, service& ambiance were great!

Blackhawks Hot Spot
No vegan options (I don't count pasta and plain red sauce). Otherwise they do a great job accommodating all the fans looking for a great meal before going to the United Center. A decent and reasonably priced beer selection rounded out a great meal. I recommend the fish tacos if you like spice. I was surprised to find they offer a free shuttle to the United Center too!

Went for Mother's Day brunch
Went for Mother's Day brunch the day before Mother's Day Brunch. First time here and was a good experience. Service was great. Food was good. Would definitely recommend it and hopefully will be back again.

Sunday evening, I took a friend to dinner for her first visit to Chicago. The place was perfect. The nose level was good for conversation, service was friendly and prompt, and the food choices were not your typical sports bar food. I will caveat that the place was not very crowded since it was a Sunday evening. The plus was they were playing the white Sox game on several of the TV's, which my boyfriend enjoyed. We were the last people to leave, but the staff didn't rush us out the door. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

Great spot before any UC event
I love coming here for a quick bite before Bulls or Blackhawks games. The food is good and the service is as well. And I love the free shuttle to the United Center. It's so convenient!

Sport Fan Central
Date to watch Blackhawk playoff game. Food was great, staff was great and patient. Allowed viewing of the game to dictate timing for drinks and food. No rush to turn over table. Great bar and food, including the chopped salad, ladies! Not all fried food!!

Good for watching a Bulls
Good for watching a Bulls or Hawks game when you don't want to be elbow-to-elbow with the crowds on Madison St. Great patio and rooftop too!

Food was great, better than I imagined. Was not too impressed with the beer selection but overall the vibe was great. Good music. Very clean. Will definitely return.

Great spot--went here for lunch on my last day in Chicago for my 21st and the food and service was great. I had a margarita, which was ok but overpriced for the size in my opinion. Loved the neighborhood it was in, I'm sure the rooftop there is incredible, I will definitely come back next time for dinner and go up to the rooftop seating. Fun place and yummy food!

I dined there with my girlfriend (now fiance) on Saturday. I called in advance and spoke to Tiffany who was extremely helpful in a few little things to make it a special night. After a delicious dinner in the dining room we went to the rooftop where the skyline view was breath taking and I proposed right there. We had some friends waiting and we were able to enjoy some champagne and soak in the experience. From the bouncers to the wait staff everyone was extremely kind and accomodating. We will be back there in the future. I'd recommend anyone looking for an incredible experience in Chicago stop by Market Bar.

Umm that's amazing
I had lunch here Saturday with a friend for his birthday. We enjoyed everything! For an appetizer we had the popcorn shrimp (by the way is not on the menu & comes with an amazing sauce). He had the ribs...omg huge portion & I enjoyed the honey glazed salmon over spinach again huge portion. I'd recommend coming here & we'd defin come bck! Great staff, food, & space.

Great for entertaining clients
I hesitated to entertain here because I thought it was just ordinary bar food. Big surprise, the food and bar selections are fantastic!

Great stop before concert
Dined here before Rod Stewart concert at United Center, because of good reviews and free shuttle to and from United Center for sports or concerts. Food was very good--mahi mahi tacos, nice décor and ambiance, good mixed drinks, very nice service. Our waitress saw us having trouble catching a cab from the restaurant after the concert and gave us a ride back to our hotel. That is beyond good service; that is true human compassion.

Great meal before United Center
the food was really good and had a super nice selection. I particularly liked having a fit menu that provided healthy options beyond salads. I was able to make a healthy choice without sacrificing taste or options. we got there early, so our waiter was very attentive. then it got super crowded from other people eating before the concert at United Center. at that point it was nearly impossible to flag down our waiter for anything... including the check. he got slammed quick and we don't think he expected it. he was a great waiter up to that point so i do not hold this against him or the restaurant.
we would definately eat there again.
