Market by Jean-Georges Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Once again, Market delivered the goods. It was a quiet night which suited us. My VP was in from San Francisco and we had been up in Whistler where we were disappointed by the service at a normally great restaurant. So I was hopeful that the staff at Market we’re as good as usual.
It’s one of my favourite rooms. It’s peaceful, comforting and beautiful with a modern elegance and international feel. This could be in London, Hong Kong or New York.
The food and service lived up to all expectations. Keep up the great work and we’ll keep coming back.
Thank you for the amazing brunch on Saturday! My brother got married and we were warmly greeted upon our arrival by the host and they had our table ready for us despite being 30 minutes early. When we sat down a bottle of champagne was brought over to our table which was a lovely gesture. It didn’t stop there, we ate our food which was yummy and after, a hand written note was given to my brother and his husband as well as chocolate covered strawberries! Thank you ever so much for making this special day even more special.
From the reception, to the bar and to our table, we received nothing but superb service! The staff were very welcoming, accomodating, and kind. The food was amazing, me and my friends enjoyed the main entrées.
Market by Jean-Georges has great ratings and reviews that it made me curious. And now I know why a lot of people recommended this fine dining for any kind of occasion. They are well-trained to treat their customers with respect and kindness.
Overall, it was a fun-tastic experience and I will be back very soon! :-)
My friends and I are very disappointed with our Sunday brunch visit this weekend. Our orders, including just coffee to start, took over 15 minutes to arrive, and then another 20 mins for the food to come. The restaurant was not busy at all. The servers never came around to refill our waters or coffee. We had to patiently wait and flag a server down each time to receive any service.
I also had to ask for a glass of hot water 3 times to receive it - the same server forgot twice. At the end I noticed a hot water charge on my receipt which was never mentioned by the server. The receipt noted it was served with lemon and honey for $2.50 which I did not get. My friend also got her food order wrong and had to send it back. The food itself was only mediocre. I am extremely surprised by the bad service at a world class hotel. We will not be returning again.
We've been here in the past for dinner which was reaaally good. So this was the main reason we tried their brunch. Unfortunately the food was not nearly as elevated as I hoped it would be, especially for the cost. Also the service this time around was again unfortunately awful. Super inattentive, brought the wrong food, didn't offer drink refills. So yeah, I loved the dinner menu, but the Bruch is definitely worth skipping.
When we were married 5 years ago we stayed at the Shangri-la and loved it. We went to Market for our first anniversary 4 years ago and the it was amazing, so we decide to come back for our 5th anniversary. Sadly since that time it appears everything has gone downhill.
Upon arrival, there was one gentleman being assisted by the hostess. While we are waiting a women who had already been seated interrupts host because she forgot her phone in her (checked) coat pocket. She finished helping the gentleman, then proceed to help the other women get her phone before attending to us, despite the fact we had already been standing around waiting before she arrived.
Seating- there were plenty of tables but we ended up getting seated at banquet with the next table less then a foot beside us. Not as private as I would have hoped for a special occasion.
Food- I really wanted to try the vegan menu. I ordered the maitake mushroom salad to start and it was okay. I had the carrot risotto and it was extremely underwhelming. The portion was very small (about 1 cup of rice) with a few carrot pieces on top. The "herb salad" was a sprig of dill and parsley. It was also completely flavourless. Do not order this. I had the sorbet to finish and it was small but good.
Service- So impersonal and cold. Last time we were here we were made to feel so special, so this was the most noticeable difference of the whole experience. Our server did not say anything to us other then asking us what we would like to eat and drink. Despite being asked when if we were celebrating a special occasion (the day before, when confirming the reservation) there was no mention or congratulations of any sort.
Overall, I would not recommend Market anymore. Much better value at other high end restaurants when your spending that much money.
A quiet rainy Monday meant few diners. We had attentive service but never overly. Food was very fresh and high quality, presentations simple, seasoning subtle. The vegetable sides were top notch and generous, cooked with as much respect as the feature dishes. Wine list is smart and short, with some excellent (and expensive) choices for the adventurous and fortunate.
We had a delicious dinner at Market in the Shangri-La Vancouver. Food was excellent, with a broad variety of options on the menu. Atmosphere somewhat lacking but this may have been because it was quite quiet. Service slow but we were not in a rush so it didn't matter.
Venue is great and service is friendly but I wouldn't recommend this place if you are pressed for time. Service was extremely slow. Took a long time for server to arrive to take our drinks orders, long time to bring the wine, then the food, and forever to show up so I can flag her down to bring the check. I was with clients and we had a very busy afternoon ahead so the slow service made it uncomfortable for all. Good place if you have a lot of time to spare
Knowing that one of us was gluten-allergic, the host came to our table with a copy of the dietary restriction menu. As well, our server went out of his way to talk with the chef about the possibility of modifying the tasting menu for gluten allergy. While it was disappointing not to have been able to order the tasting menu, what we ordered was fantastic. I do hope the chef will consider having future tasting menus be flexible to accommodate allergies.
We regularly eat at Market but this meal was outstanding. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings and every dish was excellent. The chef and staff served us, which enhanced the experience. Our first dish was presented in such an interesting way and the smoke was evocative of a campfire. It set the tone.
As regular diners we always recommend Market but this was a new level. Well done! Exceptional and worth 5 stars in every category.
Went to celebrate my partners birthday 🎂 and we had an amazing experience. The service and food were excellent. We sat with a beautiful view of downtown, and it was romantic and perfect. The staff provided a little birthday treat and even a card! I was really touched, and my partner enjoyed every minute!
After eating dinner there, went to breakfast two mornings in a row and had a wonderful meal. The first day was a fabulous tasting omelette with loads of veggies and the second day very nice pancakes. My husband had the Chinese breakfast of dim sum two days in a row because of how great tasting it was. I could eat there every day.
We ate dinner at this restaurant on Saturday night and it was one of the best meals both of us has ever had. Not only was the atmosphere quiet and romantic on the patio, but the wine and food were delicious! This night was planned weeks ago as a date for my boyfriend and I, as we are from Kelowna, and the goal was to find an awesome restaurant to have a fancy dinner, something we can rarely do at home. This was the best dining experience either if us have had in the two years we've been dating, so shouts out to the chef. Also shouts out to our server! (The check name said Conny.) We were one of his only tables, and he went above and beyond to make this experience great for us! Impeccable timing, super funny and polite, and we were thankful he was the one who served us. We hope to be back one day. Thanks again 💜
Mentioned that we were celebrating a birthday in my reservation and asked for the best table available. There was no mention of the birthday and we were seated next to a family with a toddler when the place was empty. That family was celebrating a birthday as well and not only did the staff gush over the patron, the chef came out too. I feel like maybe they didnt check the notes of ours before seating us. Food was great! Place was dead on a Friday night.
