Market Restaurant and Bar
product-driven cuisine inspires him to change the menu daily and the food is complemented with casual, yet upscale service by a well trained staff.
We search out the best produce, seafood and meat from local markets. Chef Schroeder's passion for perfection and the spontaneous nature of what is available to us are showcased in our daily changing menu.
We pour ourselves into every aspect of Market to ensure a unique dining experience. We change our craft cocktail menu to accent local fruit. Our award winning wine list has a worldwide selection of boutique wineries whose obsession with quality mirrors our own.
Best food in San Diego!
One of the best meals I have ever had!
Celebrating our 1st Wedding Anniversary in all ways was spectacular.
Market is usually wonderful. Tonight was a great disappointment. The salad was delicious but the lamb dinner was way over salty. Everything on the plate just tasted of salt and nothing else. The waitress never came to check how things were. I ate what I could as service was slow and they were very busy. When I mentioned at the end that the food was way too salty she was snippy and unpleasant. I doubt I would go back.
Wonderful food, such a treat, and great service!
Most delicious pairings! Every bite delightful!
Four of us ordered different entrees and they were all exceptional!
We sat at the bar for a casual evening. The service was terrible. We asked for a wine recommendation and the bar tender actually laughed. The people beside me had an extremely long wait for their food and when they told the server they had a time constant they were insulted. If you want to be treated like you don’t deserve to be someplace, this is the spot for you.
We dine at many of SD’s finest restaurants but always vote Market the BEST!
As always, excellent food and attentive staff
Love this place!!!
This restaurant always has great flavors- and great service!
So happy we had dinner again at the market, consistently fabulous and I would definitely recommend.
Excellent service, very good food. Reservations a must.
Great service and super friendly folks from the moment we were greeted, to our waitress and the Other supporting cast.
The salads were super good and vibrant. Food was very good and “cuisine nouvelle” style (meaning fancy but small portions).
Found the decor very dark for our taste. Other than that, it was a great experience and the noise level was low which pleasantly gave us the opportunity to talk to each other without yelling :-)
One of the best food experiences in San Diego. Absolutely delicious from the bread to the salad to the appetizers and entrees and dessert, excellent! For special occasions, book your reservation well in advance.
The time between completing the appetizers and getting the main course was TOO long.
Outstanding service, outstanding cuisine, outstanding atmosphere like always!
From the the valley parking, to the reception at the entrance, to the welcoming bar (Eve is the best bartender ever!!!) and to the dining room, the service is impeccable and always so friendly!!!
We love MARKET!!

We had a great meal. Everything was really tasty and the portions were just right. A great place to go for a special occasion. I have been to this restaurant before, but not in a while. It seems to have gotten even better than it was before.
Pretty much perfect. A touch noisy, but a small thing. Good, staff and ambiance just terrific!
Always an amazing experience
Consistently amazing. We go there on average twice a month and have never been disappointed. Eve is an amazing bartender with new creations made with seasonal fruit.
Every bite was incredible. Two delicious amuse bouche. One was a spicy shrimp skewer and the second a play on a fruity mimosa with berries, champagne and sorbet. We started with a smoked salmon appetizer that was basically a lox and cream cheese bagel taken to a whole different level. The black cod and scallop entrees were both excellent as well. Only complaint was they were out of the ribeye that we had been eyeing while previewing the menu over drinks at the bar. Service was perfect as well from the complimentary valet to the various members of wait staff that took care of us.
Every aspect was simply flawless! We loved it!
Excellent meal. Very memorable
We love the market. But we felt Spencer was a bit obnoxious and belittling. We def will make sure not to have him next time. We dine there frequently. Food was great as always.
Love this place! Great food, bar and service. Romantic dining room with a hopping bar area which also serves dinner.
Some of the best food I’ve ever had without a doubt.
Definitely going back! Everything was very impressive and worth the extra money.
too spicy ( most dishes) or too much added to the main course (one food or sauce). other than that
great. I always order a first course, and Cod......it's fabulous!
No doubt still one of the best restaurants in San Diego: excellent food, perfect service, beautiful ambiance. Two minor complaints: some of the tables are too small and too close together, and a tasting and/or wine-pairing menu was not being offered.
Food was never better
Wonderful menu selection. Solid service, great food.
Superb from start to finish. Brilliant service for an engaging and knowledgeable server (thank you Edwin), perfect advice on wine (thank you Alex). So good we went two nights in a row!
Nice restaurant, food was fabulous. From the complimentary appetizer, to entree and dessert, everything was wonderful. Eye rolling dishes. Vodka martini with blue cheese stuffed olives, best I've had in a while! For an appetizer we had the blue cheese souffles with strawberry rhubarb toast and the roasted duck with duck confit. Really terrific. All in, about $125 per person, alittle on the pricey side. That includes 1 martini and two glasses of wine.
Overall very great experience. Service was spot on for a restaurant of this caliber. Two fish dishes were amazing. The appetizers were even better. Only downside to the food was the butterscotch dessert was way too salty from the toffee. A tad less on the salt and everything was extremely well done.
A stunning array of flavors, complemented by the attentive and friendly service. An excellent restaurant with many lovely touches.
Wow. Can't believe it took me so long to finally try Market. It far exceeded my expectations. From start to finish, everything was artful, creative, flavorful, beautifully presented. Service was on point, and the ambiance was warmer than it looked from the photos. Very possibly my new favorite gourmet restaurant in San Diego. Worth every penny!
We had a reservation but for some inexplicable reason they wouldn't seat us until the other couple arrived. Then we still had to wait. OK. Finally seated at a nice table, service was slow. Took quite a while to flag waiter down to get drinks. Waiter was friendly but there was a lot of high pressure upselling which we all found really annoying. Example: "The kitchen is running really slow tonight. It could be 40 minutes until your food comes out, so why don't you order some starters while you wait?" Seriously? The restaurant didn't look insanely slammed and we hadn't even ordered, so what kind of place is running that far behind and warns you like that? We passed on the starters, and wouldn't you know it! The entrees were out in about 20 minutes. He also pressed on bottled water, bottles of wine instead of glasses, etc. Then he never came back to check on us - I guess if you don't order fancy bottled water, starters, or more than a couple of glasses of wine, you are not worthy of good service. We were going to order dessert but by the time we could get his attention again, we were ready for the check. With so many amazing places opening in North County, with friendly and welcoming service, why bother going back to those restaurants stuck in the snooty dark ages?
This is by far the best restaurant in the San Diego area!
