The food was outstanding and makes me wonder why we go anywhere else for special occasions. The service is impeccable! We love trying new places but always come back to the Market for birthdays and often our anniversary. The food is always great and so is the service.

We always love going to the market but my only complaint is the menu doesn't vary all that much. The food is good and the quality is too but it would be nice to see more variety.

Great staff. Max was a great waiter. Unfortunately, the menu is not gluten free, vegan or vegetarian friendly. The kitchen tried to accommodate my vegetarian palate but these days a more inclusive menu should be standard and not an afterthought. We used to frequently patronize the bar because it had a great menu and then it went the sushi only route. The lackluster dining room menu can also be served in the bar but it does not provide a compelling enough reason to ever return.

Visit Market Restaurant every time my husband and I visit San Diego. Had a delicious Mole Manhattan before dinner. Small but varied wine list. Rib-eye cap is always #1 in our book. Jeannine is an outstanding waitress.

The food was absolutely delicious and the service was wonderful. Everyone who works there is very welcoming and helpful. Our server was very personable and knew everything about the food and drinks. He was a definite high point of our evening there. Of course it really helps that the food was out of this world delicious. We will return, and also recommend Market Restaurant.

It was our second time dining in this wonderful restaurant. The food was delicious, the service great and it was one of the quieter restaurants we’ve visited this year. It was not full this time, but it was completely full last time and we really enjoyed the our conversation where we were able not to have to shout. Needless to say we will be back especially when we have other people with us.

The menu is diverse and the food is exquisite. The salad course was ample sized, and combined with an entree, provided more food that I could eat without even being oversized portions. I would heartily recommend this for a fine dining experience.

We asked for a quiet table, which was great. Except, the table was situated such that my husband and I were looking into the sun, through a patterned screen, which made it impossible to see the faces of the people with whom we were dining. The lighting from above wasn’t bright enough to illuminate their faces, either.

A simple solution would be to turn the table 90 degrees so that the sun is at the sides of both couples, but shining in no one’s eyes.
