The food is always wonderful. Our waiter had a bit of an attitude at times which was a bit off putting and surprising as we've always had exceptional service.
Excellent food. Dated interior.
Eve at the bar was a great server. Very knowledgeable and pleasant. I started with the blue cheese soufflé , which was very good. I had the fish for my entree. My only comment on it was that, like many kitchens, they were a little liberal with the salt shaker. The flavors on their own don’t need any added salt. I had the flourless chocolate cake for dessert with buttermilk ice cream. The cake was good, but I didn’t enjoy the spicy sauce that accompanied it
We had a marvelous dinner as we always do dining at Market.
The flavors of Carl Schroeder's dishes are so wonderful.
A great mix of classic and modern cuisine.
We'll be back as always!
We have eaten at Market in the past with mixed results. We decided to give it another try. What a great experience. Menu had changed and was far more upscale. Food was incredible. Pace of presentation of the courses was spot on. Our waiter was so attentive and got all my food allergies correct. It is loud so if you have hearing issues, would recommend you ask in advance for a booth or table on the side of the restaurant rather than the center. Will put this restaurant at the top of my list next time I want to go out.
Best Restaurant in San Diego. Food Israel delicious and Service is outstanding
The time between our first course and main dish took way too long. Food and service was good though.
We received attentive, knowledgeable service from Randy. Blue cheese soufflé was a great starter. Seared tuna and mushroom ravioli was amazing. Everyone was service-focused.

I was online searching for a restaurant in Del Mar, and Market kept coming out on top. Met up with some friends who were locals who have been dined here before and confirmed that Market is one of the best restaurants in town.
It was busy for a Sunday night, but we had the perfect table in the back (#11) and it felt like we were the only people there. Such attention to detail, both in service (thank you Gavin!!) and food. Every dish was picture perfect. Almost too pretty to eat - but so glad we did.
A must do if you are in the area. Can't wait to come back.
Market is a truly exceptional restaurant with a great menu, value and an excellent staff. It is my favorite restaurant in all of southern California.
'twas my girlfiriend's birthday. Had flowers delivered to the restaurant, and there they sat with a birthday card from the staff! Service and food were outstanding. Amuse bouche, grapefruit and avocada salad, stripped bass with dungeness crab, flourless chocolate cake, and a slice of birthday cake - all excellent. A prior visit here found my mushroom ravioli way overly salty, but this time, all was perfection. The restaurant has the reputation for being one of the best dining experiences in Del Mar. This experience proved them correct.
Delicious, as always! My husband and I come here a few times a year. We would much rather go out to restaurants less often and spend the money on Market once every few months.
Chef Carl is amazing. Perfectly paired flavors. We always enjoy our meals.
We were amazed t the number of people working here, there was even a lady whose only job was to open the door for us! They were all very helpful, but with such great service it would have been nice to have someone take our coats to hang up so we didn't need to sit on them! The food was extremely tasty and mostly Asian fusion style, and the wine list was excellent. Although the number of menu choices is not enormous there is definitely something for everyone and vegetarians or people with special diets are well catered for. The desert with coffee bark was delicious and we asked if we could buy some! (No luck!) Each dish came out very quickly and we did feel rather rushed, so this s not really a restaurant for a lingering romantic meal. However we came out savoring the flavors we had experienced and feeling very satisfied.
All of our courses were outstanding. Very fresh and imaginative. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. All together a great experience.
I discovered this restaurant 5 years ago. And it’s always fantastic!!
I never leave a review however I feel like I should this time. My husband and I dined at this restuarant several times in the past. We usually go for special occasions. We recently dined on a Saturday night celebrating my husband’s birthday. We had a nice table by the window which I had asked for when I made the reservation on Opentable. We ordered drinks before dinner as well as a lovely bottle of wine with dinner. We ordered an appetizer each as well as dinner. We started eating our appetizers and half way through my appetizer I found a large hair. I called server over and told her the situation. Before I could even say a word she immediately said she would get me another one and ran off. If I had a chance, I would have told her I did not want it since I was a bit grossed out with the large hair.
When the bill came she charged me for the replacement appetizer that I did not want in the first place. This really bothered me. I did pay it but was not happy. I did not want to ruin the night by making a scene. We truly enjoy
this restaurant for special occasions but will think again before I make another reservation.
Muy buen servicio, platos bien presentados. Buena carta de vivos
NY friends visiting
Took out of town guests and as always, our dinners were fabulous. They were very impressed
and we had no complaints. Delicious.
Our favorite place!!!
Amazing Time great service
The food and service were great. Our server was extremely helpful and pleasant. We look forward to coming back.
Food was absolutely amazing!! Everything on your plate had its own taste and surprise, every bite was a party for your taste buds, I just can’t say enough about how amazing every thing we tried. We all had something different and tasted everything. If you want an amazing dining experience this is the place. The staff are absolutely incredible, friendly not pushy attentive yet not a bother, perfect service. I would recommend this place to anyone, it was definitely one of my top 5 best dining experiences and I am a total foodie, trust me it was amazing!! Make sure you get the soup, no matter what it is, the chef takes great pride in his soups and you can certainly taste it, it is probably one of the best things to ever enter your mouth, definitely a place that will not disappoint anyone, perfect dining experience.
My favorite restaurant in San Diego. Always has great food and superb service!
This is our favorite restaurant in San Diego! We rarely go out when we are home because we travel so much but this restaurant always delivers!
This place has a magic to it. The food is fantastic and the ambience is perfect. Love the fact that it’s not echoey and reverberant. This makes such a difference. Very classy.
Stellar on every level. Execution of dishes, service, specialty cocktails, unbelievable flavors, stellar, stellar, stellar! The best San Diego has to offer and then some; in my top three restaurants world wide.
Great fine dining spot...food was very good. Ambience was a little unique but fine. A little pricey.
World class food and service, interesting menu items, Market Del Mar is our go-to place for special occasion dinners. Everything on the plate is delicious and artfully arranged without being overly precious. We have never been disappointed and look forward to our next dinner there.
It was about very good experience. It was our anniversary and I wish we were seated at a more private table.
Best meal all year! The food quality and variety makes it worth the trip and dealing with slightly slow service and moderate noise level. Definitely great for special occasion and will be looking to next visit.
We went for my my husbands birthday. We got amazing service and have a very unique experience with the farm to table style menu. We absolutely loved it!
Exquisitely prepared food served by professional staff in an energizing environment. You owe it to yourself to dine here several times per year. Enjoy!
This restaurant is a gem!! Everything we ordered was amazing, not to mention beautifully presented. The service is outstanding as well. Finally a restaurant my husband and I BOTH love!!
The best meal in San Diego in my opinion. Wife and I come here frequently - alone and with friends. I've never had anything on the menu that I wasn't absolutely thrilled with - soups, salads, meat, fish - all fantastic. Wait staff is always great. Bartenders and bar staff equally good. Nice wine list and a very helpful, knowledgable sommelier (Alex). This is our go to place for everyday and special occasions.
starting with the most comfortable seats I have ever experienced, and through to the food (beginning with a terrific amuse bouche) and service, it was all superb. A great deal of effort, thought, planning and successful execution is really notable.
Took friends from Annapolis, MD here and they were extremely impressed. Three of us had lamb, and 2 of us had COD. The miso Cod is memorable and worth a trip just for this dish!
Great service, great pacing.
Also had the avocado grapefruit salad which was wonderful.
Our guest raved about the soup... looked like artichoke or something.
Great evening. Market never disappoints!
The food was extremely salty - tenderloin and tenderloin & short rib. In addition, the plate was "messy" (not dirty). Everything seemed mixed together.
Market Restaurant is it! Nothing like it in San Diego. Strongly recommend.
