The worst. I’m not sure if it’s because they’re closing in a week but that was a horrible dining experience. Aside from being slow to start, food was good. Ordered a bottle of wine that was bad, so we sent it back. When the second bottle came we were told we weren’t able to taste-test. Manager stated “they couldn’t afford to open another bottle”. We inquired as to WHY that was ($150 bottle, no testing) and we were met with no real response. Declined bottled. THEN, our passive-aggressive server came by and basically threw the debit machine on our table!! Sarcastically stated it was an accident (obviously not) and when we asked what her issue was we were met with “you reemed out a lot of our staff already, just go”!

BRUTAL. If common courtesy and customer service is out the window — great. I understand these are unprecedented times but that was honestly one for the books. One week left in business and zero cares given. Sad.

Where to start! The food was amazing, so tasty! My friend our plates were literally emptied by the end so we could not ordered dessert :) The waitress was great (too bad I don't remember her name), always making sure our needs were met. I really liked the option of having regular or sparkling water, in some places you are charged when you go with the bubbles, well not here! We were sitting outside & It was sunny, our glasses were changed very often and filled with fresh water. I would definitely go back, would like to try all the items in the menu. :)

My fiancé and I went for the hip hop brunch. Firstly our server was amazing I wish I remembered her name. The DJ was fantastic and the food was so good. I can honestly say that we will be reserving a table at the next one

Amazing service and food. A little street noise as we sat in the patio from 17Ave but that’s expected in that area and adds to the ambience.

Food was really good. The menu has most if not all gluten free items which was awesome. I ordered the beef tartare and cauliflower and they were both delicious (though the cauliflower was the frontrunner.) The service was slightly inattentive towards the end of the stay there, but couldve just been a busy time. My friend and I were there to enjoy their promotion: whatever the temperature was, was the % taken off regular procedure food items (25°=25% off). The server and manager had told us when we were paying that it was what the temperature was at the END of the stay when you pay your bill, but I could not find that information online on any of their advertisements. With being a server myself and seeing how my restaurant handles these issues *with a smile and accommodating to the guest* we felt that we were met with a cold energy. Yes, it was only a 2% difference so I let it go, but it's the principle. I hope they can change the advertisement to specify the fine print of the promotion. I also help that if a customer is unsatisfied they can make adjustments so that we leave happy, especially over something as minuscule as an extra 2% taken off the bill.

We were on the patio so had a nice mixture of street noise and the restaurant's music.
Food was excellent. Great presentation and care was taken in the preparation. The house made desserts are very good.

First time dining experience and definitely enjoyed food and service. Only negative was hostess insistence we had to wear mask inside restaurant going to and from table. Why are business owners not speaking out against this bylaw and opposing this and the other nonsensical rules? Calgary city hall says it has the support of over 3000 business owners. Do you not think it ridiculous that I must be masked if I’m away from the table but not at the table, or I’m seated with an empty table between myself and the other diners...like any of this would make a difference if there there was a true and deadly contagion! These measures are not necessary to open the economy...people going out and being able to enjoy themselves open the economy. Many are now stating home not because of fear of catching something but simply to avoid having to comply with rules that are dehumanizing and of very questionable necessity or effectiveness. I routinely eat out but will now be joining that “eat at home” group and no longer providing my support to restaurants until this craziness is stopped.

Went for brunch. The eggs Benedict was overcooked and even when they brought a new one, it was underwhelming. We sat on the patio and it was nice to be outside. The featured cake was too sweet. Overall, food wasn’t great.

Trying to find an experience similar to a hip-hop brunch we had in BC - this was pretty good, but the menu was limited, not including the feature offerings on the hip-hop brunch menu shown online. Music-wise the hip-hop was old-school meaning from the last 15 years, which wasn’t what I was looking for… But it might suit others. Very pretty inside, food was good.

During the time of COVID and for that matter at any other time, The Market has been a place to go and have a comfort meal in a pleasant environment. The menu is not extensive, yet all items are superbly prepared and presented. Enjoy the ambience as you savour the food and wine.

I was disappointed with one of our meals. The fried chicken sandwich was awful. There was so little chicken and a lot of batter. Very hard and unable to eat. The waitress did not see to understand the problem. And just brought a second meal the same. I have enough er before had a bad meal there so was very disappointed. This was a birthday celebration and it was the birthday person who could not eat her meal.
