My coworker and I made it here. She had a salad and I had the beef stroganoff. I've been here multiple times for different dishes and they're always very well prepared and flavorful. This was her 1st visit, but I always try and make a trip at least once when I'm in town.

Food is always delicious. The ambiance is just as expected. We were seated right away at our reservation time.
The service started out well, our waiter took our drink and appetizer orders right away. That was about it. We had to flag him down to give him our dinner order and again flag him down to ask for the check. He rarely checked on us for drink refills or to see how if we needed anything. We continuously had to flag him down. We will continue to dine here but I hope to not be waited on by this person again.

Our experience is usually exceptional but this time we went to celebrate our Anniversary. we received our drinks and my husband poured partial in his glass he cheered me took a drink and spit his drink out. There was a daddy long leg spider in his glass that ended up in his mouth. The waitress and manager were apologetic but did not take the beverage off or offer a complimentary dessert for the horrible spider experience.

This was my 3rd visit. The food was just OK this time. We had a group of 8, and were split evenly of those who really liked their food and thought their food could have been better. I had the pork belly fried rice appetizer as my entree, and added an egg which I had prepared over medium.
The rice was not cooked completely, and the Chinese sausage was burnt on one side. The pork belly was plentiful and pretty much chunks of sweetened pork. Lots of edamame, carrots and some other chunked up veg that I picked out and pushed to the side. Huge props for not including onion or garlic.
Others in my group had spaghetti (sauce a bit thin, should have had a slice of bread on the side), burger (meat was described as "puck-y", quinoa salad (could have been more flavorful), green salad (nectarines were a nice touch), eggs benedict (not a crumb left on the plate), biscuits and gravy (good), and chicken and waffles (missing syrup was quickly rectified).

I don’t like their pizza but that is just me. I have never had bad food here. I’ve had less pleasant experience with the hostesses and longer than promised wait time (like 40 min longer) but overall they are just a great place to go for eats!

We were looking for a place to celebrate my husbands birthday and my daughters year end recital. This location had great reviews and we had never tried it before.
I liked that I could make reservations and the food was great. Our waitress Tana was awesome and we will be returning in the future.

The food is usually great!! I ordered the fish taco for the first time and I was disappointed. The tortilla fell apart and I had to use a fork to eat it. My shrimp louis was great!! I always order the lemon meringue pie and I’ve noticed that the crust is too hard to cut with the fork. The filling is outstanding!!

Great service, great food, ordered an old fashioned and still have no idea what it was the bartender thought she was making, but it wasn’t my old fashioned. Wish the old bartender was back. Overall I’m not writing the place off over a drink.

The food was good but the service needs to be worked on. Took approximately 45 minutes to get our Seafood Paella. The appetizer held us over which we split along with some bread which we had to ask for. Possibly a bad night for them which surprised me because it was a “special”.

Food was wonderful, organic, and the owner and wait staff were incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and accommodating to my husband who is in a large motorized wheelchair. We had a party of nine, and some of us had to leave early so the kitchen was able to put their orders in and out quickly. Wonderful experience!

Food was just “OK”. Service was fine. Ambiance was good. Food didn’t live up to what you would expect from the ambiance. I bet they get most of there money from the “Tavern” side.

We have recommended Market Tavern many times. We just happened to be seated next to a very large, very noisy group this time. However, we will take our chances again and hope for a smaller group next door.

I visited this restaurant for the first time after reading reviews, and I’m so glad I did. We were a party of 8 and were given a private room for our gathering. It couldn’t have been better! The service was great the variety, quality and taste of the food was wonderfull and the ambience was perfect. I even ventured to the bar for a quick drink and had a great experience there, too! Do yourself a favor and try this out. Oh, and they also have a market, hence the name, with wines, cheeses., pizzas, sandwiches and deserts to take home. Overall a great experience!!

Thank you Market Tavern for making our festive celebrations such a memorable event of a lifetime! Our family was celebrating the 50th Wedding Anniversary a young couple from Holland and the Graduation of their daughter, who received her Masters degree in Educational Administration. You all made our special evening one of great honor and filled with much love and joy! The cuisine was outstanding... and so were our toasts’❣️

Took my daughter and her family for a birthday lunch for my grandson and it was great. The food pleased everyone and the venue and the staff were very helpful in making it a kid friendly place and an enjoyable lunch for the "grown ups" too. Even my son-in-law as impressed. Kudos to our server Emily for taking great care of us. Highly recommended
