**We do not take reservations for the patio. We seat only complete parties on a first come first serve basis.
lighting was dim and atmosphere grim, service took a while even though there were very few people in the restaurant, and food was totally unremarkable.
Food is very good, albeit a little pricey for a sandwich and fries. Bread is extra charge - $3 for two rolls.
Oysters weren't a bad deal at $4 each. Our waiter was very attentive. Martini was excellent. Because of the weather, people who might normally have been seated outside, were at the inside bar being quite noisy. Our table was in a separate dining room, but quite close to the bar. I suspect it would normally have been a little quieter. Enjoyed it and would go back, especially any time we need a dinner location that opens before 5:30.
Yes and no I would recommend Marketbar. If you are looking for a place for good cocktails and apps in a slightly quieter atmosphere with your colleagues, this is a great spot. However, if you are looking to have a tasty elevated dinner with work colleagues, the dinner menu leaves much to be desired.
A friend and I met for an outdoor lunch on a very fine early January day
We had iced tea a specialty that never disappoints
She had salads nicoise and I tried the salmon sandwich
Service deft and professional
We were slow getting to our selections chatting. Our server was patient and never rushed us as we lingered
Check it out
New Year's Eve dinner we could have went somewhere else. Most of the photos of the food online was not available for dinner. They had oysters, fish chips, lobster roll/bisque but no seafood tower or special seafood entrees. We had one chance to spend NYE in SF and I made the wrong choice by picking MarketBar. This is a more casual eatery not a place to have a special dinner for $$$.
Had a wonderful NYE here - they made it very specual
Not busy so they put everyone in one section, including the screaming baby that the parent refused to remove. Food was good but raw onions are not listed as an ingredient in the lobster and crab roll. I spent a good deal of time picking them out.
A bit noisy and we were seated by the Office Door which kept opening and closing. Also the door leading to the outside was left open and it was COLD. No consideration for the patrons sitting on that side of the resturant. All in all the service was excellent, and the food was very good.
We had a lovely lunch at Market Bar today. I had a delicious salmon sandwich, my friend had a really yummy chicken pot pie, and my husband had a Caesar salad with some of their parkerhouse rolls. The rolls were dry but everything else was delicious. No complaints but it would be nice to have a couple more vegetarian options. Service was excellent and we were allowed to linger with no pressure to move along. It was a very enjoyable visit.
Sat outside at MarketBar for lunch on Saturday. Had a reservation and was seated promptly. Service was very good. God was fresh and tasty. Excellent smoked fish platter and incredible French fries. The patio is on The Embarcadero with a view of the bay bridge so the setting is great.
I have ordered fish and chips and they were just average. Previously when I would order fish and chips here they were very good. One of the best, something has changed and test is not there. Quite disappointing.
The chopped salad was beyond mediocre....iceberg lettuce, salami, provolone cheese, disappointing and overpricrd.
Good solid standard. Delicious juicy burger and crispy/fluffy fries!
Efficient service. We ordered a crab & shrimp Louie salad and the chioppino Both were good. The wine list was limited and I had to send one glass back Overall Ozk but there are better options i. The Ferry Building.
Went to Marketbar for daughters birthday and our server was amazing and made the meal a special occasion.
I always enjoy MarketBar. The food is interesting and good. Great ambiance and you can actually have a conversation at normal voice levels. Great location and setting, and friendly service. It used to be great value too, but I think they raised the prices to typical SF high end restaurants.
I’ve been here a few times and only ordered the seafood salad. It’s been consistently delicious.
Everything was great We decided to do small plates: deviled eggs, mussels, deep fried olvies, beef empanadas with a delicious red wine
Meal was great. Service was very accommodating and friendly!
Very convenient location. Lively atmosphere. Big portions
Great service! Great outdoor seating by the ferry building
Es ist eher eine Brasserie.
Das Personal hatte hatte zu wenig zu tun, und hatten auf den Cell Phones rumgespielt. Non go.
Zu grosse Weinkarte.
Der bestellte Rose wurde nicht im Kühlschrank gelagert.
Seafood war sehr gut.
Love Market Bar...met girlfriends and stayed for two hours...nobody rushed us to give up our table...my only issue is that the prices seem to have gone up...as seniors on more or less fixed income...it was definitely over my budget...
We had friends visiting from Australia was hoping to sit outside but was told that they couldn’t accommodate a party of 7 outside. That was disappointing. Service was good, food was so-so. The portions of the food and drinks were on the smaller end (dinner). For example Aperol spritz usually is in a huge wine glass but they served it on a half sized wine glass. For the price of the food and drinks, we expected more.
we sat outside and maybe that helped with the noise level. Service was EXCELLENT
Very good restaurant with great service. Their fish & chips, calamari, and cheese burger dish are all good. It's a bit pricey, but good food.
Food and service was ok but for the price and location would have expected more. Nothing that exciting on the menu.
All excellent! 😁
We sat outside and it was (too) windy...
A very pleasant dining experience. The food was great, the atmosphere casual but nice. Our server, Divina, was awesome. She was efficient and attentive without being intrusive.
Longtime patron for business lunches. Food quality has gone down, service still slow, still overpriced.
Buen lugar en el muelle de San Francisco. Comida muy bien lograda. El restaurante es un poco discreto
Excellent service. Tasty food. Pleasant atmosphere. Good value. What more could you ask for?
Our server was very welcoming. This shrimp special was spicy but very well done. I would try again.
Great place to people-watch in San Francisco. Service was very good. Food fresh tasting and reasonably priced for the Embarcadero area.
Service was a slow, had to go out of our way to find the server a few times. Also ordered a side of bacon that never came but I understand that’s easy to overlook.
Excellent service and very attentive. High cost of food in a touristy area is expected. It was fresh (seafood) and delicious!
Servicable option on the Embarcadero. Work and live nearby, and eat here every few months. Always eat inside, so not going for the outdoor patio which I know a lot of people like. The food and menu usually look better than they actually taste, and this time was no exception. This time they had no vegetarian options on the menu for my partner, and a soft-ball request for the chef to just make some pasta without the shrimp sauce was met with confusion and consternation. Really? Peruvian fish stew for me was workmanlike but not inspired or inspiring. Service was inattentive and spotty early on a Friday evening.
If you're looking for reliably good food and service for not too much money in the area, there's other, better options. The location and the outdoor patio will keep people coming back though.
We chose Market Bar for its location, convenient for our group coming from work and BART. We chose to be inside because the afternoon sun was intense this particular day. Waitress was distracted and inattentive.....worse part, she was wearing sunglasses indoors (maybe she also had outdoor tables) so impossible to make eye contact. Happy Hour was pathetic....very few choices, and at least one was the same price as the regular menu! We enjoyed the devilled eggs (not on the happy hour and quite expensive) and my husband enjoyed his seafood salad. Calamari bowl was neither fresh nor plentiful. Didn't sample cocktails, just wine and beer, nothing special!
Awesome Caesar Salad. Delicious fish tacos (spicy!) and oyster chowder(really nice).
Quite expensive, but the tastes & beautiful day outside made the visit a pleasure.
