Food was decent. We stayed at the Whitcomb to celebrate our 16th anniversary and decided to give the in house restaurant a try. We were seated quickly, the food tasted ok...but the service was rushed, the server never made eye contact, we were so rushed the check was placed on the table while we were still eating, we never were offered the dessert menu, and a chair was added to our table as they reset from a large party beside us while we wer eating. We paid, notified the manager & got THEE HELL OUTTA THERE! Too many fine places to eat in Frisco to deal with this 💩. Never again!

I have unusual food restrictions that are difficult for most restaurants to accommodate. The gracious waiter worked with the chef to provide creative and tasty solutions that were safe for me. My wife and I enjoyed talking in the quiet and welcoming environment. The whole experience was delightful.

A good place for dinner before going to the Orpheum Theater--almost across the street! Food was tasty, but not hot enough; however, we were rushed for time, so just had to eat. The waiter was very helpful about keeping us "on track," and accommodating our time schedule--a bit challenging since our friends were stuck in traffic and ran late. But we ordered 5 different items from the menu and shared everything. Worked out well. Wonderful steamed mussels and scallop risotto.

We picked the Market Street Grill because it is within walking distance of the Orpheum Theater. The bar service was good, and the appetizers were the best part of the meal. The entree's were only fair, the menu was quite boring, and the food not particularly well prepared. For example , I ordered salmon - the sauce was all on the skin and the salmon was way underdone, the mashed potatoes were lumpy and tasteless, the baby carrots were barely warm, and the brussel sprouts, which were promised, were replaced by kale which I hate. I spoke to the server and was for the most part told there weren't any brussel sprouts (even though they were on the menu) and as for the rest of the food , 'that's just the way the chef prepares it". It didn't ruin our evening for we loved the play, but for a restaurant that likely gets many pre/theater diners, the food and choices should have been better.

We had dinner here before a SF Symphony performance. Everything was quite tasty, from the scallop risotto to the steak. Portions were quite large, and the quiet ambiance lent itself to good conversation. We especially appreciated the attentive service--after we had departed and were standing outside chatting, our server came up to return the tip--my husband had failed to notice the gratuity had been included for our group of six. We appreciated the wonderful honesty and the money returned!

It was unfortunate to see the business became slow the day I went for lunch. There were only 3 tables the 1-1/2 hours we were there. The food was prepared well, but some appetizers even angel hair pasta were not available. Service was great; selection of food was limited

The food was delicious and beautifully presented (though I wish my salmon had not had the skin on). The service was fast and efficient without being intrusive. The server was always right on time when we needed him and left us alone when we didn’t.

All in all a very enjoyable experience and one I would happily repeat.

We went for dinner prior to the symphony. We liked the bruschetta, but the salmon was over done. We found the veggies to be undercooked. The spaghetti was less then memorable. A rather inconsistent meal that let done very consistent service.

Disappointing to find such a limited menu. Very few choices. Otherwise a good location to Bart. Be aware there is only a lobby bathroom using a borrowed card key. No restrooms in bar or restaurant.

We always eat here when going to a show at the Orpheum. Great food, friendly staff, Orpheum is right across the street! Short ribs were fabulous and so was the game hen!

The Short ribs were short on flavor. Frankly I was underwhelmed.
The Crabcake was delish!
Our waiter was flat, robolike.
We were in The City for Aladdin. We’ll go elsewhere next time.

Very prompt and attentive edit staff. They checked if we were going to a show to make dire we were served in a timely manner.

Twelve of us came here around 5pm after the Aladdin show. We had at least three restaurant staff taking care of our every need. For appetizers we had calamari, muscles, and goat cheese bruschetta. The seafood was outstanding and the bruschetta was good as well. We all had different items for our main course and everyone was happy. The serving time was very quick as well. Great place for dining near the Orpheus!

Great location for Orpheum theater, but very mediocre food and poor service. The waiter came just once to get order, and that's it. Never stopped by and asked for anything else. Also, the quality of the risotto is worse than home made risotto. I cook 10x better ... and costs me $5 not $30.
