While the location and service were fine, the food left much to be desired. Our main issues were the filet was covered in onions and the fries that came with the burger were obviously frozen and soggy. Not what I was expecting for an $18 cheeseburger.

We had dinner before a show at the Palace. They are very good at understanding the needs of people going to shows in the area. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The menu is limited but very good. Anything from a gourmet burger to a filet to risotto. The salads were fresh and they have a nice wine selection. We would recommend this upscale restaurant to anyone going to a show or looking for a place downtown that's off the beaten path and out of the fray.

We had a Groupon so it was an outstanding value. My wife had sea bass & I had duck. Both were wonderful, as were the salads we had as starters. We'll definitely be back.

Marketplace Restaurant came recommended and it was well worth the recommendation. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great for a business meal. Would highly recommend to anyone. The only negative was the foie gras appetizer, it was good, but it wasn't what I expected it to be when we ordered it. There is more pancake than foie gras, but it was still good.

We had a great experience. I had said in my reservation that it was for our anniversary and they surprised us with two complimentary glasses of champagne when we arrived!

We had a delightful evening at Marketplace. We are early eaters so it was not filled and was quiet. Even the music was perfect and not too loud. Our waiter was outstanding and the food very good. We generally love eating in one of the outside spaces, but it's February and our anniversary, so we ate in! Love the imaginative and colorful decor--- in AND out. Different spaces, different moods. Something for everyone. We love taking out of town visitors here, especially after walking around downtown in good weather. High end restaurant, expensive, but worth it for a special evening.

Fabulous food, ambience and service. Great evening. I did miss the live music, though.

We went there before the Jerry Seinfeld show at the Palace. They were very mindful of getting us out the door in time. I loved the scallops , but my husband’s short rib was a little bland though it was cooked well. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and we will definitely return again soon. Perfect location before a show at the Palace.

Extremely disappointed in every aspect! Food was terrible. We ordered an appetizer, that came out cold and sent it back. It came out cold again! Then I ordered the risotto. It was completely undercooked as was the butternut squash in it. The squash was so undercooked, it was actually crunchy. Plus, it was very bland in flavor. My husband and a friend ordered the sea bass. It was so fishy, my friend could not eat it at all, and it smelled awful. The service was slow on top of that! I have no idea how this restaurant ever got more than 1 star! Never would I recommend this place to anyone!

Everything was great except that they did not allow happy happy as their website said. It said M-F - 4-7 and upon arrival was told that they don't have Happy Hour on show nights. I was very irritated with this as this should be stated on the website, since we choose this place based on that and location. We definitely will look elsewhere next time due to false advertising, even though the food and service were both terrific.

The ambiance here is great. It was a cold night and we requested a table near the triple fireplace in the back. It was toasty warm which is just what we wanted. The bourbon list, although long tries a little too hard to be different; a few old standards sprinkled in among the single barrels would help. We had the mussels, which were very tasty. The sauce was a bit gloppier than I like. The foie gras appetizer was just odd. Everything was the same color and it was difficult to tell the poached pear from the foie gras from everything else on the plate. If we return we may try some of their less esoteric dishes to see if perhaps we just made the wrong choices. Service was terrific.
