MARKET Ratings and Reviews
I had been to Market before with a girlfriend in the summer for Sunday brunch on the patio and it had been lovely. I thought I would bring my husband so we made a reservation for Sunday Brunch. I requested to be close to a window, but when we arrived I was escorted near the kitchen in the back, although it did have a window nearby, I asked to moved to the front in the sunshine so we could people watch. The server did move us as there were only four or five tables and not busy at all. My husband's chair was cracked so kept pinching him in the back. We waited for our food for 45 minutes, even though it wasn't busy at all. I had a mimosa and our server didn't ask if I wanted a refill until our plates were delivered. I said I did want another one, however it was never served to me. The food was quite good, although when we were finished it took our server another 20 minutes with empty plates until my husband finally signaled the server across the room that we wanted our bill. When my husband asked if the kitchen was short staff our server looked at him funny and said, "no, why?" She then went on to gossip to the other server about us right in front of us behind the bar. Even though the food was good, we probably won't go back.
We went early in the evening when it was not busy, there were only a few other tables seated at the time, and the service was slow to start surprisingly. Once we got our drinks things picked up and was no longer a concern. Cocktails and food were great, love how they grown and make a lot of their own food. Bathrooms cute and clean. Absolutely LOVED that they have a real Christmas tree. Overall would go back
I absolutely adore this restausrant. I’ve been here for several occasions and every time the food has been incredible, the service is always excellent and the atmosphere is stunning. It has been my favourite restaurant for the past few years and remains to be! I recommend it to everyone. It’s the best restaurant in Calgary in my opinion. The best way to discribe the food is, it feels like quality home cooked food that is wholesome and nutritious. It’s like healthy comfort food made with love! I adore everything that Vanessa has created and appreciate her efforts in being a counter force in her industry. <3
Food was great. Loved the flavour of the burger though the bun was kinda soggy and my wife shared her fried chicken sandwich which was also super tasty. 1/2 off wine Mondays was a pleasant surprise which allowed us to have a nicer bottle which is usually out of our budget . We've been coming here for years and will continue to do so.
Overall average but the entree was disappointing especially for the price. We had the duck trio which was $35 and it wasn’t impressive at all. The appetizers were good however, and the value for those was good. We had the lobster mac and cheese and the poutine. All of their dishes were quite salty. Ambience was good and service was average. Our server forgot one of our order but was really friendly and apologized as soon as we mentioned it. Overall the food and experience wasn’t bad but for the price I wouldn’t go back. At the designated times when prices are lower I would say it’s worthwhile.
The food quality is very good. The issue with Market is the service and how the food is presented. The Dinner Platter for 2 was described by the server as a large amount of food; we were cautioned against ordering appetizers. Good thing we ignored that advice, as the Dinner for 2 is more like Dinner for 1.5. The Dinner for 2 tasted great, but the presentation of things like the short rib looks skimpy - it’s like they are trying to give you less of the expensive items. This looks bad. Raise the price if you must, but it’s a mistake as a restaurant to present anything anemic looking.
Sunday night dinner with another couple The food was outstanding. The appetizer choice left us in a quandary of how we could order and taste the most number of dishes that would appeal to all of us - or at least 3 or 4. The Brussels Sprouts were unbelievable if a bit sweet - gooey deliciousness, the gnocci was enjoyed heartily and my husband fancies himself a gnocci afficiondo - light with a delicate creamy sauce. We shared the chefs platter for two which that night was perfectly cooked salmon, crispy blue potatoes, green beans and carrots (both still al dente) and a market salad. The service was interesting - there weren't many people on a Sunday night and he seemed to want to chat. He kept calling us my friend(s) which seemed a little odd (ok we're in our 60's) and also kept inserting himself into our conversation which seemed really odd. He was a nice enough guy and did a pretty good job of the descriptions and general service but we all noticed it and were somewhat perplexed. I guess we looked friendly. The ambience is fine if a bit cold - really hard chairs and a very open room with a lot of hard surfaces in a farm/industrial look. I suspect it would very noisy if full. Overall we enjoyed our dinner very much. The food certainly was worth the 5* rating. Keep up the good work Market.
Thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant. The location, the service, and the food, were top rate. Very busy, but comfortable. Ordered the Market salad and the bison ribs, and we were delighted with the flavours and textures. I would highly recommend this for a good night out.
We really enjoyed the popcorn, oysters and corn dogs shared among 3 We found the Boar lasagna was nothing special. small portion for $25.00. We all commented on the white sauce on top that had no taste and was like eating a paste even though it was a thin layer. We thought the presentation was fabulous. I would go again for appetizers, drinks and a chocolate.
staff was great.
We arrived at 8:15. We had a reservation but got seated in the lounge. The waitress didn’t even say hello before she started listing all the menu items that they were out of. This was really disappointing.
The service continued to be less then friendly. I finally asked the waitress if she was ok. When our wine was corked she proceeded to recommend a bottle $20 per bottle more expensive than the one we had ordered, which felt a little cheeky.
The food that we did have we delicious. Gnocchi and tacos.
The Burger and the Last Best Dirty Bird were the bright spots, Two of our party had the Salmon and it was meager at best, and the other had the Duck and it was tasteless and cold.
as far as recommending, if you are llooking for an expensive burger & Beer, this is your mark.
Three of us went for dinner for a “girl’s dinner.” We decided to share some appies - brussel sprouts, duck confit tacos, gnocchi, saskatoon berry glazed chicken wings, and crab corn dogs. Everything was delicious and exceeded our curious expectations. My maple Old Fashion was also quite tasty. Each of us had one drink, and the bill split 3 ways was well under $40 per person, so very affordable considering the size of the appie portions - we were all very full when done. Well worth trying to find parking around 17th Ave!
I've been a few times and the food never disappoints. The mains take a little time to come from the kitchen, but the starters are quick, as are drinks. The service last night was particularly quick and friendly. They'd run out of a few dishes by our 6 pm reso - staff were very up front and nice in telling us before we looked at the menus. I don't mind as everything is very fresh and there is still lots of choice. Those mashed potatoes with the beef dish are delicious. 👌🏻
my only complaint is...we had a reservation...2 other tables in the restaurant were full....she sat us at the worst table in the place!!! I was viewing a fire door exit!!!! the place is very pretty from ANY other view!!! I should have spoken up...but my husband switched seats with me....everything else was very good
My girlfriends and I had a great dining experience at Market and we will definitely return. Konrad was a wonderful server who made recommendations for us, all of which were delicious. The food was exceptional - the brussel sprouts and gnocchi were amazing and the chicken entree was cooked to perfection! The noise level increased around 730 pm which at times made it difficult for us to hear our server or for him to hear us. Overall, a great evening out!
Our appetizers were great - brussel sprouts and tartar. My pork dish was delicious but the two duck dishes we had were not cooked properly and were very rubbery. Not much taste in comparison to the pork dish. Creme brule we had for dessert was not set. The other desserts were delicious.
Was there for the Hip Hop brunch. DJ was playing music. It not the hip hop I was expecting (like their poster would suggest). Still a nice vibe.
There was a very large family birthday party, so the noise level was high at times and the service was slow as a result.
Food was outstanding as always. The best salmon benny I've had.
