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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
