Market Street Grill Ratings and Reviews
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.
The Market Street Grill charged my card twice; had I not checked my online statement I wouldn’t been aware. I charge matched the bill, the second amount was higher; when I called to question the bill, the response was confusing, a “pre-authorization charge” and “to wait a week for it to clear”... didn’t make any sense. The restaurant manager was out; I’ll be calling back next week.
1. Apparently their web site is not up to date. They show rack of lamb on the home page but it is not on the menu. Braised ribs was very good and plentiful. Their brucetta is not the standard type. They bring you a plate with the pureed tomatoes?, cheese with nuts, toasted bread that you put together. My wife liked it though. Largest mussels I have ever seen. Not many though. Great sauce. The salmon was good.
2. Their restaurant open times are screwed up. OPEN TABLE takes reservation between 2-5 pm but they are not open. They are open at 5p for dinner. I called and checked and it is true. So coming from a play across the street on a Sunday that ends at 3:30 can cause a problem. However after walking around finding another establishment for refreshments then going back to MSG, we found out they were open at 4:30 p or so for the "theater crowd"! Wish someone at MSG would make up their mind. Don't they know when there is a play across the street?
Limited menu and we were rushed at lunch , it was Wednesday afternoon theater day and guess they wanted to turn over the tables. There wasn't a vegetarian option and one of the members of my group was left with not much to eat. The best thing is they are very close to the theater. we will not go back.
The service is excellent, friendly and efficient. I had the scallop risotto which was fabulous.
My friend and I often visit this restaurant before or after a play at the Orpheum. It's a very nice hotel-attached restaurant and great for people watching if you get a window table. It was a rainy evening - and the fireplace made the room cozy, inviting and relaxing. A great place to have a meal.
We had a lovely meal before the theater here. The serving staff was attentive; our salads, entrees, and dessert were all delicious (try to mussels, the risotto, and the lemon tart).
We were seated by the fireplace on this rainy night, and it was so cozy. What I enjoyed the most was the elegant, quiet atmosphere.
I selected Market Grill for the first time for my friend and I because of its proximity to the Orpheum Theater for an 8pm show. The ambience of the restaurant was warm and lovely, and the service of the staff was outstanding. The food was exceptional - so fresh, delicious, and served at the correct temperature. We are definitely going to be regular customers in the future.
