I had the Chef's tasting menu and wine pairing. The food and wine were well paired, and the portions were good for a six-course meal. They chef came to the table twice to review his creations and to add fresh truffles to the dish. The food and wine was great, the service excellent and the restaurant was centrally located in downtown Vancouver.

We were a party of 7 for my Wife's 75th birthday and they couldn't have treated us better. Excellent variety on the menu and the food superbly prepared. Can't say enough about the service. Can hardly wait to return.

I loved the ambiance and vibe of this place when it first opened - it is now too quiet, feels old and the restaurant was empty on a Friday night. Our server was great and the food was tasty but overpriced. I’m sad to say I won’t return.

Our food was simply outstanding - a fabulous cauliflower soup, an exquisite piece of halibut, an extraordinary crispy tofu main course - everything a restaurant should be. So great to find a bit of the NYC Jean George experience in Vancouver, BC.

Fantastic dining experience from booking the reservation to paying the bill!
Staff that greeted us, served us, cooked for us were all fantastic!
Table of four adults everyone had an appetizer & an entree & we shared 2 bottles of gorgeous BC wines. We shared 1 sourdough round to start. It was a special occasion celebrating 2 birthdays one of them a milestone birthday so I had arranged the day before for something special. Bobby surprised our table with 2 lovely deserts to share that were the restaurants specialty. Peanut butter chocolate pâté style dessert & white chicolate cheesecake w/ meringue shards. Fabulous way to finish our evening.
Our friends from Switzerland were suitable impressed.
We will be back as the menu needs more discovering!

Ordered Seared Scallop & Shrimp salad as appetizers. Scallop tasted fair, Shrimp dressing was overly sour. The 2 mains were Halibut and Steelhead, Halibut was fairly cooked, sauce was slightly salty. The Steelhead was too salty, the entire plate was not eaten. Dessert was Almond tart, tasted strange, server said was gluten free and vegetarian. Doesn't taste and look like a tart, just a square piece of loosly flour put together. Service was good though and the Steelhead was not charged. Overall it was a disappointing meal, was here 2 years back, the food tasted better then.

The food, in our opinion, was not worth the price. We both ordered the tasting menu, and although I would point out that the food was expertly prepared, there wasn't one dish that I would talk about or ever go back for. Our food bill (not including alcohol) was almost $200 - and for the price, we didn't see the value. We would likely not return. The service and ambiance were great. We were there for our 10 year anniversary and wanted a special experience. It was obvious to us that some tables were treated better than others, as we watched several couples being treated to very special service and attention.

Nous sommes en vacances et originaires du Québec: service très attentionné et en français! Tous ont fait un effort pour nous présenter les plats et les vins du menu dégustation en français même si l’anglais aurait aussi bien fonctionné avec nous. Un service très soigné et personnalisé! Une cuisine raffinée et tout à fait délicieuse ! Un trésor national :) !! Merci pour cette belle soirée !

My friend wanted to order something that wasn't on the brunch menu (eggs benedict) and the restaurant had no problem providing them with what they wanted. We were given some delicious amuse bouche and madeleines gratis as a starter. My vegan truffle mushroom pizza was decadent and delicious.

What a brilliant night. We have visited Michelin restaurants throughout the world but this restaurant blew us away.
We sat in the atrium with chandelier lighting overlooking a part of the city that made us feel like we were a part of the excitement of New York City.
We were greeted by Dil. What a sweet man. His warmth and gentle attention made us feel like family. His suggestions regarding the menu were spot on and our tasting 5 course meal was absolutely unbelievable.
We met Louigi too. He was our wine pairing expert and his choices for each course was so precise. Louigi also stayed with us after our meal to entertain us with some exquisite digestives, absolutely gorgeous.
Our chef, Alex came out to see how we were enjoying our night, and what an amazingly talented man. His fresh and thoughtful food was pure magic.
This was our first visit and certainly not our last.
Thankyou Dil, Alex and Louigi for making this an unforgettable experience.
P.S. I’ve already booked to come back for lunch. 💋

Market by Jean-Georges is one of our two favorite restaurants in Vancouver. This restaurant serves brilliantly prepared, creative food from the region that is absolutely delicious. There is also a great bar with wonderful wine and cocktails. The staff is outstanding. There is nothing about this place that we do not love, enough so that we are eating there twice on an eight-day vacation.

This place is phenomenal! The food is AMAZING! Of course I shouldn't be surprised because it's Jean-Georges but I really do love the food. I can for brunch and ordered the avocado toast with the poached eggs. And also ordered the bacon, roasted heirloom tomatoes, roasted potatoes, and croissants. It was all delicious! And of course, last but not the least, the staff was wonderful! Very attentive & super helpful! I will definitely be back & will recommend to everyone!

We always go to Market for special occasions (birthdays or anniversaries or weddings), or whenever we have foodie friends come into town. I have been vegan for nine years and it's the best place in town to be able to enjoy a superior quality meal for everyone at the table. The meat eaters get a gourmet meal and so do I! Everyone wins!
