Great food, good wine list, exceptional service, a bit pricey. A worthwhile stop for dinner in north San Diego county!

One of our favorite restaurants. It's pricey, but worth it. Each dish is distinct in taste and style. We come here for birthdays and special occasions. Delicious.

Everything was fantastic as usual. My wife always enjoys the braised short ribs and beet salad. I had the soft shell crab appetizer which was the best soft shell crab dish I have ever had, and the mushroom ravioli. It was great to have Michael back after an absence of a year or so. Market continues to be our favorite restaurant in San Diego!

Great place to eat, I just wish the menu had more options. Lots of great appetizers that I wanted to pair together to make my dinner since I couldn't find anything from the entree section that looked appealing.

Market remains one of our favorite restaurants. I had trouble picking an appetizer as there were so many options that I wanted to try. Ultimately, I tried the Blue Cheese Souffle with Plums and it was excellent. My wife had a salad that she enjoyed as well. Our entrees consisted of the due of short rib and rib cap. This dish was quite rich and very tasty. We also split a dessert. Our service was perfect with a very knowledgeable server. The only drawback (if you can call it that) is the dated decor of the restaurant. However, everything else was perfect and we will continue to enjoy coming here. This is one of the consistently good restaurants in SD.

When a very special friend comes down from Westwood, she always wants to go to your restaurant, which I introduced her to a few years ago. I take family members there for birthdays, Christmas gifts.

One of the best spots in California. Very limited menu but not a problem as each choice is first class.
Well prepared food served with style.
Have been coming here for over 5 years and have never been disappointed.

It’s a great space - quiet and the staff was attentive. Nice wine list. Beautiful presentation. We found all the sauces far too salty, which really detracted from the food.

We went to Market for our Anniversary and were so glad we did. The food was really good (try the blue cheese soufflé- yum!) but the service was even better! Very appropriately attentive waitress and they remembered it was our anniversary. Thank you for a great evening!!

Starting with our outstanding server, the entire experience was great. The presentation was fabulous, but not at the expense of the taste and quality of the food. My guests from San Francisco, who frequent the food scene, said that it would be a top restaurant there as well. Clearly one of the top few in Del Mar.

We have dined at the Market many times as we live in Del Mar and have always enjoyed our dining experience at the Market. However, last Friday night did not end well. The food was outstanding as always. The service was fine until the waiter spilled a large glass of water filled with ice and lemon all over me. My dress, legs, shoes were soaked. He simply said “sorry” then went on about his business. I was quite surprised and disappointed that he did not even offer me a glass of wine or desert or try in anyway to make it right.

Our favorite restaurant when living in Southern California, and still our favorite to frequent when back in town. A brilliant menu full of diverse layers of flavor, beautiful ambiance, and friendly accommodating service. Highly recommend Market, worthwhile of flying halfway around the world to visit as we did!

Restaurant and food Wonderful. Very hard to know what your ordering, could not understand any of the menu.

Need to do something about the Restrooms one ladies and a family just do not cut it. Kids messing around and I had to use it.

I would go somewhere else just because of that

Bad experience. Had reservations at 8:30 and food didn't arrive until 9:30 (placed order within 5 minutes from getting there). Then food was just ok for the price and expectations. It didn't live up to the hype and service was not all that great either (except busboy)

The food was mediocre. Wait staff was fine, very responsive; but the food was ordinary and in fact, when we looked at the menu, there was almost nothing we wanted to order. This is the second time we have eaten there, and we do not intend to go back--especially because the prices are excessive and just not worth it.
