We had spent the day exploring San Francisco. After getting off the cable car we found ourselves on Market Street looking for a good place to eat, but had no reservations. Luckily we found MKT which had both wonderful food and a fabulous wait staff! The short rib tortilla was delicious!

This was the last straw. We are regulars and our orders again were not right. The manager came over at the end of our meal not when we sent back the food to be prepared properly and was condescending and we let him know we will not be back!!

The food was fresh and delicious, my wife and I both enjoyed seafood. Alaskan halibut and fruits of the sea.
Very nice portions and really fresh and flavorful.
The curry soup was also outstanding.
Overall we enjoyed our dinner, the view was incredible as well.

2 ppl, we each got soup, Arnold Palmers and a main course (steak salad for me, pasta for my guest). Came out to $130 with tip but the unforgivable part is the food was mediocre. Pasta was way too salty my guest said. My steak salad was listed as a main course but more like an appetizer.

Won't be using this place again for a business lunch!

Great food and services! Not unreasonably expensive in Four Srasons hotel of which rest room and others are clean and good. Over those, friendly and professional services were perfect for us. Foods were tasery and complex enough to satisfy my family. Only concer is the rumor cheif might move out to the East.......

Tanya is the best waitress ever! It is rare to find a waitress that treats her customers with such high level of respect and dignity. She assumes that you know things, she does not over explain and she automatically offers wine choices that she would willingly bring out for you to try all of them. On top of that, food at MKT is delicious which makes the experience 5 star worthy. Highly recommend!

Arrived a little late for our reservation, guy at front desk was a little snooty about it, set the tone bad.

Our waiter made it all better, first class service, staggered our orders perfectly.

Crab Risotto was amazing! Fruit of the sea had a little bit of everything in it and was delicious.
Paper plane cocktail was a little too good.

I’ll be back!

Tremendous food and portion sizes. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the food at MKT. As New Yorkers, we don't generally go to hotel restaurants, but the Open Table reviews pushed us this way, and we were very pleased. We each had a salad to begin, and one had Alaskan Halibut and the other the Fruit de Mer. It was a struggle to finish the meals, and we couldn't, leaving no room to check out the dessert menu. Prices are definitely high (come on, $8 for coffee?) but one gets a lot for the dollar, and it merits a return trip next time we're back in SF.

Okay, I am never one to leave public reviews, but good lord this place was so bad, I feel like I should give everyone a head's up so no one else ever has to suffer the nightmare that is eating at MKT. I went last week Sunday (6/10) and it was absolutely the worst dining experience I have ever had.
First off, when the hostess saw me and my boyfriend she sneered. We were a little overdressed for the place, but since this was the Four Season's lounge, I assumed I would want to change out of my normal jeans and t-shirt fare. I was wrong. She barely acknowledged our presence and proceeded to show us to our table without a smile on her face and didn't even ask us how our morning was going. She flat out ignored us as she begrudgingly walked us to our table. She looked so annoyed that my experience was already beginning to sour. Our waiter was no better, when we simply asked for water instead of drinks, he took away the drink menu as we were trying to make up our minds. I guess he simply assumed that we wouldn't be able to afford it or something, but he never even gave us the chance. Then as we ordered, he talked down to us (probably because we look young) and made it seem like we didn't belong. Big mistake. The staff overall made us feel so uncomfortable we finished our meal quickly (even though the horrible vibe of the place made our 30 minute meal feel like eternity). They were so disrespectful and rude that I would never want to come back, or recommend this place to a friend. If you are considering eating here--don't. Unless your favorite dining experience is being belittled and disrespected by the staff, I would not go to MKT at all.
