    I used to like mkt. I am very disappointed on the food and services. They told us to leave after 1.5 hour. We were told, Another table is coming . You need to leave now. How rude.

    We were a group of 7 so we were able to experience a variety of menu items. Our favorites were duck confit, the barratta, polenta balls, gnocchi, conchigile, lamb osso buco.

    We were the only customers when we arrived at 4:30 and there were only two other people dining when we left, yet they sat us literally right next to the bathroom door. It smelled a bit and I asked to move to the open table next to us, which they accommodated after 10minutes. The two other people who were dining there got seats near the front of the restaurant so not sure why the difference. Food was good but pricey

    We've dined here before and enjoyed it and will do so again. We mistakenly ordered the gnocchi, and what we wanted was the gnocchO. We both tasted the gnocchi and didn't care for it (it was prepared entirely differently.) To the great credit of the one waitress working our section, she took the old dish and put in the order for the new dish. Speaking of our waitress, she was very kind but not able to be fully attentive with many patrons to care for in a limited space. We tried not to flag her down as she whisked past on clear missions, but finally broke in to say we wanted another drink. The food itself: We ordered two small plates, the green beans and burrata. Both were excellent! Oddly in this small space where you sit pretty much next to the kitchen, the main entrees were not piping hot. The lamb osso buco was luke warm. It was flavorful and good, but not noteworthy. The gnoccho on the other hand was worth the wait. It too wasn't as hot as it should have been (although warmer than the osso buco), but the flavors were wonderful.

    Delicious dinner food. Our waiter was odd. Later told us he made the tiramisu different because he was hung over and tired, so made it extra boozy. This accompanied by other small oddities with his communication. Anyway, make sure to tip appropriately

    Decent food no complaints. I would say good food, if the prices were not so expensive. The gnocchi is not made in house yet one gnocchi dish is over $40. Service was great. Neighborhood is cute.

    Heads up! This is no longer an Ethan Stowell restaurant and it shows. New owner is trying to recreate the ESR Mkt experience, but the food, cocktails, wine list and service are not meeting the standard. One very nice appetizer, but poorly crafted cocktails, meh pasta dishes and increased pricing with several plates suffering from serious shrink-flation made this an expensive mediocre night out. Bummer to lose a previously great neighborhood restaurant!

    The menu on Yelp is very misleading. The menu items that enticed us in Yelp pictures was not available in the restaurant. It would be great if the management took care to update the pictures. Thankfully, whatever we ordered was good. We will go back again.

    Hi MonRoh, Thank you for sharing your mkt. experience. Yelp does not allow us to edit the pictures unless we pay them $180 a month so they are holding us hostage around that. Just wanted to explain their business practices so everyone could be aware. I'm glad at the end of the day you had a great experience and would come back :) Warmly, Mark

    My husband and I dined at MKT during Seattle Restaurant Week and we had a great meal! For starters, we had green beans, polenta fritters, burrata crostini, and cod arancini, then seared scallops for our main, and panna cotta for dessert. Portions were generous and every dish was delicious - perfectly prepared and served very promptly. We booked an outside table and although it was a cold night, the provided blankets and under-table heater kept us very comfortable - along with our warm coats!

    My partner and I went for Restaurant Week and the food and service were impeccable. We had an amazing waitress, I think her name was Cat, and she was FANTASTIC! Seriously, so wonderful and helpful. She helped us find a great bottle of wine to split and she was so helpful in talking us through the menu. The environment was cozy and wonderful. The food was so, so, so good. The lamb and duck were perfect and I know it's just a baguette, but the SeaWolf baguette is incredible with the honey butter. This place is fantastic and everyone should try it out who loves good food.
