The concept of the “hotel as a home” extends to the restaurant as its casual family kitchen. Inspired by the casual, simple elegance of modern dining, Jean-Georges has created menus that emphasize fresh, locally produced ingredients, served in a sleek and sophisticated setting.


A destination restaurant with four distinct experiences: an intimate second dining room featuring a fireplace, a heated outdoor seasonal Terrace with city views, an enticing Bar and a sophisticated Dining Room. The full menu is available in all areas of the restaurant.

The Outdoor ( Seasonal ) Terrace and Bar are on a first come first served basis.

Beautiful and well lit restaurant that was a perfect fit for our mixed omnivore and vegan marriage. We felt the prices were easily justified by the extremely high quality and deliciousness of the food. This will now be our date night venue.

It’s our first time there, and brought my parents since they visiting Vancouver. We ordered two Ling Cod and two Steelhead. They taste very good. My dad would like to come back next time he visits here.

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.

It was fun. It was nice that they would allow us to bring our own cake and serve it to us for only $4.

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!
