Market by Jean-Georges Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Had pre-valentine's day dinner with my wife here but quite disappointed. We aren't alcoholic people so asked the server to recommend two non-spirit drinks while both of them don't taste good, we had only one sip of each of the drinks. (Fine, different people have different taste right? - ok).
The appetizers are pretty good, 4 star level - we should have simply ordered appetizers.
Entrees were --mediocre - Tenderloin's cook is up to level but tasted not very fresh. Short ribs are ok, slight sour ~~
Our main (male) server was the most disappointing point - apart from taking our order and getting paid, he didn't talk to us. He did not check with us how the food was or checking if we were ready for the next course or not. (He did that to other guests next to us ~_~) There weren't that many people and it's definitely not a 5-star level restaurant's service.
On the other hand, there was a female bread server who somehow asked us how the food was, asked us if we needed extra bread, etc. We felt like she is more a server than our server.
We gave 14% tip at the end hoping the tip will go to other servers especially that lady server. If it was just our main server served us for the night, probably we would have given less than 10% tip.
Manager of Market - If you see this, please share it with your colleagues, thank you!
It isn't easy to find a restaurant of such high quality that can easily cater to both omnivores and vegans/vegetarians, but Market has it all. The quality of the food, presentation, and friendliness of the staff are unmatched at any other restaurant in Vancouver.
This was our first visit to the Market, and we were very pleasantly surprised. The OpenTable entry described it as “casual family dining” but it is, in fact, a sophisticated and refined restaurant. The service was attentive and the staff exceptionally well-trained. Our entrees (rack of lamb and pan-seared lingcod) were cooked perfectly and served with imaginative accompaniments. Definitely save room for the peanut butter chocolate bar with salted caramel ice cream. By way of comparison, our go-to “special dinner” restaurant when visiting Vancouver has always been CinCin; the Market is its equal in quality and service, with a quieter atmosphere. We will definitely be dining there again.
With so many culinary delights nearby this place gets a pass from me. I had other reviews before going and it was a mix bag but I went in optimistic. Turns out the one star reviews were accurate.
For a nice restaurant they lack in all the details that really give guests that full experience of real fine dining. Lack lustre host, slow table service, servers don't engage, you have to wave them over for drink lists you already asked for, etc.
Food, mood & drinks were great, but what stood out to me was A. Consistent service - every single employee acknowledged us even if we were just walking by! B. Strong branding - it was my first time here, and the bartender knew this, and took 5m to explain all of the features and events that happen each year in the hotel and restaurant! Very exceptional experience and great for dates or friend nights
Went here on my bday dinner with some friends and to also take advantage of the DineOut Vancouver 2018 menu. Overall very good atmosphere and experience, and superb food! Think classic fine dining.
There was a little mix up in some of the ordering with our server, I got someone else's drink on one occasion, and when asking for the wine pairing with the main only, my friend ended up getting the wine pairing with the appy too which she didn't want. I offered to cover that instead since I didn't mind. We also waited quite a long time after dinner was done and the table was clear for our bills (but they offered split bills which is a huge plus!) and eventually I had to ask the server when he came to top up waters again. I appreciate not being rushed, but there was not offer or hint to bring it up which I thought was a little surprising. Overall still a great meal!
The braised beef with hash brown (rosti) dish was very creative not seen in my good restaurant in Vancouver. It has great texture... After being to Vancouver upscale restaurant such as Cioppino, Cincin, Bauhouse, etc. we like the food here. The risotto is surprising better than Cincin... But Cioppino is still our favorite.
The Dine Out menu allowed a simple sample selection of what Market Place had to offer. Of all the Dine Out dinners I have attended over the years, this has been the only meal that was consistent on, quality, presentation, and service.
Thank you for a wonderful experience.
I booked 6 weeks ago hoping for a birthday happy hour and dinner with my friends. When I got there it was dine our menu only. I was not interested at that menu at all. They never mentioned it. The waitress was a bit rude. I really have no good feelings about this place. The food was alright but overpriced for what it is. They don't even give you good cuts or quality meat.
Also there's a big with opentable. I went to adjust my reservation to decrease the number for a more accurate number, it wouldn't let me do so and when I saved it changed my reservation.
A friend and I enjoyed the Dine Out lunch menu for a joint birthday celebration. We both started with the shrimp salad, which was fantastic. The prawns were served warm in a buttery truffle miso sauce and the rest of the salad was excellent as well. We shared the two entrée dishes and I would have to say that I preferred the seafood pasta, although the truffle pizza was also nice. Finished with their delicious rich and decadent peanut butter chocolate bar. It was a delicious lunch, and I would recommend it to others. Service was excellent.
I got the Dine out for $40 each and the food was amazing.. the portion was a bit small but the quality of the food is great!! My boyfriend got the filet migion which was the most tender filet EVER! Also I would recommend their salmon sashimi appitezer as that was amazing as well. Definitely would go back
Dine out menu was excellent. We each had the shrimp salad and the seafood pasta with the standard chocolate peanut butter cake. The pasta and cake portions were small, and the salad was large, which resulted in a perfect total quantity of food for a substantial lunch. The salad and dessert were amazingly delicious. The pasta was tender and included very fresh seafood, but could have been more flavourful.
Our delightful waitperson with a beautiful Brazilian accent was attentive, but respectful of our privacy.
We came here for dineout lunch and it was well worth the $30 per person. My friend and I ordered both options so that we could try everything. We were full by the end of the meal. Service was excellent and the waiter was friendly. The food was nicely presented and the taste was excellent especially the salad and the seafood pasta. The peanut butter dessert was to die for.
Our server was extremely attentive and gave us great suggestions for both food and drinks! We were seated in a cozy area which was nice and intimate. The oysters were delicious and the cocktails were unique, with featured ingredients such as truffle and kelp.
Kusshi Oysters, the Slow Cooked Steelhead, and the Filet Mignon are all excellent. Portions are a proper size, so gluttons will of course complain. "Seed to Glass" (non-alcoholic) is one of the best drinks I have ever had. Busy, but not too busy. Tables are set far enough apart that you don't have to listen to the next party's conversation. Staff is attentive, but not too attentive, and you will never feel rushed to leave. The bar by the entrance looked well stocked, and it looked like a good place to catch up with a friend over a quiet drink. If you aren't in a rush, and want to enjoy dinner and some conversation with your date, this is a great choice.
Great new year brunch and nice waitress . However, the host made a sour face towards us, and some of the food was shocking. The Roasted Chicken that our table ordered came with a Mexican Mole Poblano - most restaurants would consider giving a health warning for serving that specific Mexican CHOCOLATE sauce, especially together with what seemed to be macadamia nuts. Along with that, the ‘Steelhead Sashimi’ was not sashimi at all, rather, it was a bad play on nigiri. The only ‘raw fish’ in it was salmon that had been smoked, which is an extremely deceitful name. Aside from that one appetizer which was a clearly NOT sashimi, the Avocado Toast, other entrees and desserts were quite nice.
Market is consistently one of the most refined spaces in the city to dine at. The menu is small and well planned. The service is impeccable. I would highly recommend as a fine dining experience. There are only a handful of sophisticated modern restaurants in YVR and this is the best of them.
