We were seated promptly. The service was attentive and friendly. The restaurant was busy and the noise level was rather high. The food was good and tasty. The portions were a bit small. The menu was short with not many options. The price was very competitive. The overall experience was very good and worth 5 stars.

I always choose the market. I like the ambiance
And love to watch the kitchen . I had back surgery
And the girls are thoughtful so that I get a booth
So that means a lot thank you

Our family has always enjoyed Market Tavern. Recently the service has gone downhill quickly and it seems to coincide to the opening of the new restaurant in Dublin. If there is a manager on site now in Stockton, he/she is never around. The fact that there isn’t anyone “in charge” is obvious. This restaurant has been an always reliable choice until recently. Hopefully this will get rectified quickly.

We really like this place. We drive from Tracy but it is well worth it. One thing they need to improve on is the window treatments. Some of the shades don't fully block out the sun which can be pretty intense in the Central Valley but overall a pleasant dining experience.

MT is our go-to spot for date nights and special occasions. A huge recognition for their extensive gluten free and vegetarian options. Now that MT also is in Dublin, we can drop in there when In the Bay Area.

Overall it was adequate. My selection of Spring Sytle Lasagne was laden with cheese and very oily, not as light and "springy" as I had anticipated. More peas and asparagus, less heavy cheese and oil, would have made the dish more palatable. Apps were decent but not "wow, that was great".

Food was outstanding. Best restaurant meal I've eaten in a while. Hubby had the pork chop and was blown away - best he's eaten. I had the poached halibut special and was delighted by the dish. Everything was so good we decided to share a dessert - the bread pudding. It was good but could have been better - perhaps a bourbon caramel sauce. I also had the smoked old fashion - only my sis can make one better. Great foodie evening for us. Would highly recommend.

The food made me sick. The waitress told me the lasagne is made from scratch and not frozen. However, I don't believe that was consistent with the facts. It was soggy and made me sick. The restaurant itself is nice. I'll try the one in Dublin in the future.

We were in Stockton for Easter...looked for a good restaurant to go to after church. The Market Tavern was the perfect place...hubs really loved it. First the open kitchen concept was outstanding...the chefs are serious! It’s great to see them do their work. We got in on time and lunch was delicious. The Bloody Mary was one of the best we’ve had...lots of attention to detail with the mini veggies — tasty! Hubs had the lamb kabob wrap - he couldn’t stop talking about it..he loved the unique flavors and the way it was prepare. I had the fried chicken sandwich...It was crispy..great bread and the salad was fresh with a beautiful vinaigrette. Now...the lemon meringue pie was refreshing - a great end to the meal. .

We were seated in bar - not the main dining area. It was a little loader, a little slower, and felt much more casual. Not the best seat for a romantic date, but perfect for our group. Food was great - starters arrived one at a time, but main courses all arrived together.

Good job, a go to restaurant.

I have been going to Market Tavern for quite a number of years. I return because usually it is a good experience. I have been noticing lately that the service has been progressively getting worse. I had reservations at 7:00 and felt as if the waitress was rushing me and my party to finish our meal and leave. We left by 8:00. I understand they were busy, but we pay for a good meal and time to talk and relax. Maybe it's time to find another favorite restaurant.

I normally love the cod but the dish seem to be missing normal pizazz. My husband always gets the painted Hills burger and while the meet is very good, the burger just seems to be lacking something. Maybe a slice of onion would help? But our guests had the skirt steak and absolutely loved it!
