The only issue we had, and it may have been because it was Father's Day, was that the service was a bit uneven and slow. We had to ask for our bread, and there was a substantial delay between courses.

Made a reservation for Father’s Day at opening time for brunch. A crowd was already waiting to get in. I prefer Market Tavern’s brunch over their regular dinner offerings. Their food is pretty good, but I feel like their menu tries to get a little ambitious with it’s fusion dishes and tends to fall flat. They have an extensive beverage menu-I appreciate the creative non-alcoholic drinks since I don’t imbibe that often. The service is usually great. The atmosphere tends to be loud & lively at all hours. Even though we were full from our chicken sausage breakfast scrambles, we grabbed a slice of Elvis pie to go because it’s a must have every time we visit.

We've eaten lunch here quite a few times, this was our 1st time having brunch however. Amazing menu for brunch. Everything sounded so good it was hard to choose! Biscuits and gravy were delicious. The French toast with bananas was out of this world! Friendly wait staff and great bartender make it a place will definitely have brunch again. VERY SOON!!

Food is excellent as always. However service is starting to get a little iffy. There was no bus boy to bring water to the table. We waited 20 minutes to get water after asking three times. And it was very difficult to get the server’s attention to get catsup and when we finally did get her attention she was somewhat put out. But, as I said, food is excellent and we will continue to come here.Hostess staff is excellent

Seated in the bar area made for a noisy dinner experience. Service was fine but food was uninspired to say the least. Ora King Salmon was overdone and short ribs were on the raw side and rather tasteless. Wedge salad was good but house salad dressing was blah. I love to cook and I could have done better at home.

The service was a bit slow - we had a trainee server and her trainer and she had a lot of tables to cover while still learning the ropes. She did comp the two birthday desserts we ordered. We also had to re-order a couple of different items because they weren't available so this slowed down our orders as well. We haven't been to Market for a while because frankly, they have the same menu all the time. While they have a couple of daily specials, they need to revamp their regular menu to get us excited about coming there more often. We really appreciate that they have excellent vegan options that are part of the menu, including a vegan mousse that was delicious!

Every time this restaurant is busy, they push out the food quickly in what feels like a rush to get you out. For the third time, this happened to us tonight, even with reservations. Our dinner arrived at the same time as the appetizer. Our server didn't bother to ask if we wanted dessert even though she brought the check. So much for a dining experience. At least this time the busboy wasn't taking our plates as we ate like last time. Seriously, at least let us enjoy the food instead of rushing us. Incredibly rude.

We love the chill atmosphere, amazing food with "fancy" menu for the location, great selection of beer and wine and wonderful service. Highly recommended for date night or business dinner as there arent a lot of places in town for that.

Made reservations 2 MONTHS in advance and when we arrived ON TIME maitre de’ tried to seat us in the less desirable bar area!!! Told him no, there’s a million empty booths available! He then gave the excuse, “ it will be about five minuets to find a waiter for a table “... I’ve dined many times here and have never had such a lousy experience! It’s going to take some time before we come back again...

The customer service was tops! Our waitress ( I believe her name was Linsey ) was very patient, kind, and oh so helpful! The food is awesome I mean BOMB! The minestrone, pizza, and steaks were all-so-good.
We brought our own 2 bottles of wine and 2 Don Pérignon Champagne ($18ea) corkage fee. We all (5) ate like royalty... have I mentioned the service?
We arrived at 8PM and left at 11-PM. mind you they close at 10PM. All that great food,
V. I. P. Service for less then $270 tax & 20% gratuity included.
If you’re ever in Stockton Ca. stop in you will not regret it. Daniel

The only issue that we had was waiting around for a table with a reservation. We were waiting for over 10 minutes and there was no one else in the waiting area. It seemed a little unneccessary and we almost left. Everything after that was great though! Great way to celebrate a birthday.
