We went with a group of 6 and sat together at a long table. Our waitress, Allison, was most helpful in helping with food choices that we all decided to share. Food, wine was great. Lovely atmosphere, great service

My first time at MRKT and
My first time at MRKT and it didn't disappoint. The food was 7/10 but the service was flawless. Our waitress was cheerful and provided many smiles. I look forward to going back and spending more time as we were rushed out to catch the hockey game.

mrkt for dinner
Overall the evening was very pleasant. We really enjoyed the marscapone and leek fondue. The only part of the evening that was disappointing was the short rib entree. This is my favorite dish to order when I go out for dinner and it was acceptable nothing more. It just tasted like a a tender beef chuck but it was not overly flavorful or ultra tender-sorry...

Tasty hole in the wall
Walking down the street you'd never stop in. The entrance is up a small flight of stairs but once you are there you are transported away. Small but very exciting menu. Lunch menu is different and appears to be more cafeteria style in the afternoon, tempted to stop in earlier in the day next time. Portion sizes were all very decent and flavours were great.
Half the restaurant is booths and the other half is a large communal table. Although you can interact with your "neighbours" if you want it's not needed and somehow all the conversations stayed quiet. I'd absolutely go again.

The food and service was fantastic. There is wine specials on Wednesdays. A little noisy once the restaurant was full.

Enjoyable evening, great food
MRKT has a very casual feel - there are a few 2-4 person tables, but most of this small restaurant is dedicated to one large shared table. If that's not your thing, then this might not be the place for you. We sat at one of the small tables, enjoyed drinks, appetizers, and each had a large plate. Things were made for sharing, but the large plates were substantial. My favourite was the melty cheese appetizer - perfect for sharing.

Enjoyable all around
A wonderful evening out for two of us. Our first visit and with a reservation. Greeted by name and being a first visit, given a tour of the menu by a friendly waitress. She explained the concept and offered suggestions from the menu and how we could proceed. Just wonderful. Food was served hot, artfully presented, and full of delicate flavors. No over powering garlic or too much salt in any of the dishes we had! Rib was served with a real home made tasting pan gravy - just like home. The thunderstorm coupled with the ability to watch lighting and rain through the skylight topped off the evening.

I had an awesome meal here. We started out with the charcuterie and cheese plate for four, it was delicious. I had the bruschetta with bacon, I really enjoyed it, other people had the special (tilapia with ragout and pastry with spinach and gouda) and they really enjoyed it. I had the berry swirl creme brulee which was good, but as a creme brulee fan I think it would have been better without the berries - why ruin a good thing? But it was still very tasty.

great little community restaurant that you might miss if you are not looking. It is worth the look.

MRKT has always been a go to place when friends get together! They were able to accomadate us with last minute additions to our group, which was greatly appreciated!
There are not a lot of options for individual main dishes, so going tapas style is a must!
Also, make sure to make resos ahead of time as they book up quickly! Thanks again for a lovely evening MRKT!

All of our meals were so good. The service was unreal!
I will be going back for sure.
The only thing bad was I thought the chairs were a little uncomfortable, but I would still go back. Not a big deal if the food is to die for.

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!

Perfect for relaxing
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.
