MarketBar is San Francisco's answer to Grand Central Station but on the water in the restored landmark Ferry Building. The casual menu offers many of the organic ingredients sold in the thrice-weekly farmer's market as well as the shops filling the interior of the building. Full Bar, creative wine list and seasonal market driven menu attracts a cross section of the city's diners to its handsome dining room, comfortable bar and spectacular outdoor sidewalk terrace.

**We do not take reservations for the patio. We seat only complete parties on a first come first serve basis.

A cold February day; sun shining so we were one of a very few parties under umbrella outside.

Omelette lovely; salad ditto. Expert, unobtrusive service. Terrific people watching of course.

Check it out.

Always consistent. Wonderful to sit on terrace, weather permitting.
The ‘manager’(guy in a suit) is ALWAYS less than friendly to say the least. Despite is negative persona, we continue to return because of convenience to East Bay folks as well as City dwellers.
Wait staff always attentive but seem to change staff frequently.

Terrible service. The hostess & server were horrible & condesending. Food used to be better. Menu needs an update. Used to love this place. Won’t go back.

MarketBar is my go-to place, especially when I have out of town guests and need to meet someplace close to my office. The food is fresh and organic, using foods that are in season. And the epi bread from Acme is always impressive. However, while usually impeccable, service was a bit slow. I wouldn't have noticed except that I had a 7:35PM ferry to catch!

By the way, on a warm day, the outside seating is usually a happening place for people-watching. Too bad it we were here for dinner instead of lunch; it would have made a great impression on my Chicago friends to sit outside in February!

I love the Nicoise Salad. Very light. Tuna is perfectly seared.

Not great service. We were inside and not on the patio area and they very much prioritized them over serving us. Very slow to get our food out and very slow to get the check.

Great spot for such a restaurant- my historic reluctance for dining there has been noise level - can't hold a conversation. It was better this time. Anything location can do to mitigate extra ambient noise is a good thing

Good restaurant for weekday dinner after work. Service was laid back yet attentive, which I enjoyed. Food came out so quickly! Calamari and oysters were delicious. Hate to say it but I didn't love the creme brulee.

Disappointing brunch. Omelet was less than delicious with very little inside ingredients.

The food was terrific and the service was impeccable. We were on our way to a show, but didn't feel rushed. Theater was attentive, thoughtful and knowledgeable about the wine and the dishes.
