We had an amazing experience at MARKET. We have been going here for a while now because its consistently good. Its seriously the best restaurant in the city. The service has always been top notch and they know when to engage and when to leave you be to enjoy the company of your guests. Our server was extremely knowledgable and made some outstanding recommendations. The food is always fresh and cooked perfectly! I love the menu and how much variety there is on there. I personally think its the best tasting menu with so many craveable items! The chef is really talented and you can see how hard his team works back there! Our waters were always filled and never an empty drink! I would highly recommend giving Market and try if you want delicious food in an unpretentious atmosphere!
The bison ribs were not prepared well. Very disappointing. I recommend they learn to prepare it better or remove it from the menu
It is not great for a quiet conversation! The noise was too much ! The food is okay! The service is not so great! The waiter didn’t give give us water as we continued our conversation after payment ! There was none else that needed that table as it was late few people still in ! We asked another waiter and this one was annoyed ! I will never go back again and won’t recommend it !
Went for taco Tuesday advertised as $3/each - turns out you need to buy in sets of 4 minimum. Should be more explicit about that on website and when advertising. Tacos weren’t that great - tasted and looked like the same slaw and green sauce on each, would prefer a bigger taste variation between duck confit, pulled pork and poke. Better deal at $2.50/taco at Native Tongues and much more tasty tacos, and with authentic corn tortillas.
Mussels were in a very sweet sauce, so nah. Fries were great
Amazing food and incredible service. We will be back for sure!
The food and atmosphere were amazing!! Highly recommended.
Such good food and fun drinks!
Great idea to have Hip Hop Brunch!! Love the food and music!!
Not kid friendly at all, no high chairs! ........................50 words at least for a review. Nah. I said what I wanted to.
Recommended by Lonely Planet, we were surprised by a nice quality food with a lot of originality in the menu.
the waiter was very keen and joyful.
Do not miss the local cider it is incredible.
Service was fast, sever was congenial and knowledgeable , food came out quickly and was very good. My wife had one of the special drinks and was very pleased. Looking forward to our next visit.
The brussel sprouts are incredible. Great burger, fries were good. Beer selection is limited but cocktails were on point. Nice environment, tables aren't too close together, but still a little on the cozy side.
The food lacked flavour even though the menu looked very promising. Overall we found it too expensive for what we actually had.
It was an enjoyable lunch with the family. All of the entrees we selected excellent!
Market was excellent! They were able to easily accommodate our larger group of people, and the food was superb. Some members of our party ordered a second round of snacks/appetizers after tasting others' orders because everything was so delicious! We would definitely come back again for a get together.
Cute inside, food was sub par, it took 50 minutes to get our meal and we were the only people in the whole restaurant.
The brunch menu did not dissapoint. Portion sizes were just right, and the coffee was hot!
We deeply enjoyed the service and food, the only downside I can report is feeling that the ambiance did not match the price/quality of the food. I know it sounds strange but the upscale food could easily stand in a more upscale location, not that they need to remodel or move but it somehow seems disjoint.
We had an amazing experience at Market! The food and drinks were delicious and the staff were wonderful. We will be back!!
First visit to Market, great ambience... I love the attention to detail in the décor... half our table was in the black zone so they got black napkins and the white zone got white napkins. We were offered filtered water or a sparkling water too... nice touch. Then we ordered the Brussell Sprouts and I was hooked... everything tasted so delicious.
Mack, our server, was friendly and super helpful!
Great meal with friends from out of town! They were in from New York and Market was on their "must try" list. This was great for us because we love this restaurant. Food came out fast, drinks were delicious, and food was delicious! The staff are always friendly and we love the atmosphere. It's a busy spot and can get a little noisy, but its busy because its so good! Totally worth the visit and highly recommend to anyone.
Went to brunch here for my birthday, loved the space and food! Looking forward to returning for Hip Hop Brunch :) I had the duck waffles with serrano slaw - delish!
Had another amazing meal here! Each time we come we keep getting blown away. I love the open kitchen concept, its nice to see all the cooks in the back working hard but always with a smile on their face! The food is always on point, fresh, and delicious! Best tasting menu in the city by far! The service is always great. They know how to read a table and know if you want to be left alone to catch up with your partner , but is always there when you need them! I tell everyone about this restaurant and is my favorite in the city! Thanks for an amazing meal Market!
I came here to celebrate a birthday and wasn’t impressed. The food lacked flavour and my lamb was rare. I wasn’t asked about the quality of my meal so I didn’t say anything. It was hard to get the attention from our server so i did not have a chance to see the dessert menu. Disappointed with my experience.
We loved the food and all of our servers recommended dishes. Everything was amazing. I will definitely be back and I highly recommend it to everyone.
Made a reservation 2 weeks prior for Big Taste dinner - 6 people & were seated at 2 small bar height tables (different heights). Totally unsuitable for a multiple course meal not to mention back issues precluded 1 of us from sitting on a pub height chair. The hostess was totally uninterested but our server arranged move us to a table when it became available - greatly appreciated.
The meal itself was good but not spectacular. I’d consider it average for this type of restaurant.
The interior was alright but I did find it extremely noisy. It was a Saturday night after all so it was a full house.
I probably won’t go back.
We went for Big Taste and tried every course with the suggested wine pairings. All the food was excellent and the staff was great as well. Highly recommended! :0)
It was very busy and our waiter seemed very rushed. He brought the wrong wine and discounted the difference in price, but rushed away before i coukd ask him to replace it.
The duck tacos were so salty I could only eat two of the four - I told the waiter and again he was so distracted he didnt even care.
I feel that if people are going to go to your restaurant and spendvtgeir hard earned money you have to treat them with respect and not make them feel they are a bother.
Had a fantastic dining experience with friends! The restaurant was very busy but we still received great service. There was a slight wait as the table before us was just finishing up dessert, but we were offered a free glass of bubbles while we waited which was a great touch! Our table was ready in 10 minutes and our server was amazing! He was super attentive even though it was extremely busy. A couple of us had food allergies and they were really accommodating to everyone. The food was out of this world good. Everything was cooked perfectly and there are so many amazing options to choose from. Price point is good for the amazing value you get. Drinks were also delicious, the smoked maple old fashion is my favourite and the wine list is small but has a wide range of great wines at good price points. The couple we brought with us said it might be the best meal they ever had, we would have to agree! Keep it up Market, your our favourite restaurant!
The restaurant was a great experience for fresh , local, and creative food.
It was my husband Birthday meal. And we have had extremely good Brunches here in the past and wanted to give the Evening menu a try. We felt that the table that we was assigned was not a particularly nice table, being close to the restrooms and the walkway. We felt as if we where in the way most of the time. And would recommend that table to be removed or place someplace else. The food was ok it was tasty enough. But for $35 for each main we would have expected something a little nicer. The starters menu didn't offer a great selection either. So we would definitely recommend this place for Brunch but they need to work on the Evening menu service.
We went here for "Big Taste" and it was amazing! This is our favourite restaurant in the city and we were really excited to try their "Big Taste" menu. The value was great for 5 courses for $65. Everything was so delicious and cooked perfectly. We always get great service when we come here and seriously can't find another place in the city that even compares. Their menu has options for everyone and they are super accommodating if you have allergies or special requests. Can't say enough good things. If your looking for a nice night out with friends or your partner, this is the place to be. Good food, relaxed/fun atmosphere, friendly staff, and great drinks! Love it!
Honestly it’s not that the food was bad, it just missed the mark. It was just average... that’s why we prob wouldn’t go back or recommend it to someone. We had the farm plate which came with a mini loaf of bread but would have been better with crostini’s or something a little more firm. Also the beef tartar was paired with a chip that may have been better suited with something different. All personal taste I suppose. Both my husband and I felt the same about our experience. Our waiter was nice though. Also the table felt very close together and not intimate at all
We went for Big Taste and usually I love Market but the quality was really lacking for our chicken sandwich. My sandwich came out with browned fried chicken and a toasted bun, but my husband’s came out looking like uncooked dough and grey chicken. We told the waitress who apologized and gave us some free chocolates but overall it was pretty disappointing when it is usually quite good.
Perfect food, friendly service, lovely drinks. The only downside today was the extremely loud music but it's their schtick to blast club hits over brunch for their "bangover" ambiance, so we knew this going in!
Always a special experience to dine at Market. Hip Hop Brunch was a lot of fun. Service was fabulous as was the food (gluten free for celiac). Mimosa could have less mim and more ‘osa’. All in all a great brunching hard time.
Although we have had a wonderful dining experience at Market before, we went for The Big Taste and found the food to be mediocre sadly. The dishes were alright, but not up the standard, nor value, we expected.
An absolutely delicious meal, paired with tasty beer and wine. The food was well thought out and focused on local ingredients. I can't recommend this place enough.
Every time we come back to Calgary we ensure to make time to stop by and have dinner here! Every single meal we’ve ever had has been incredible and so creative. They accommodate every food restriction with grace (we have a celiac and a dairy-free request). We recently have brought our families to dine with us on our trip as well and they had nothing but rave reviews. It’s a smaller hole in the wall, but once you walk in you feel at home. We especially love summer dining, as the patio is green and the people watching on 17th ave is fun! Start with the Brussels sprouts (even for the skeptics out there) and finish off with a bonbon from the glass case at the front!
