My new go-to place in SF for general overall eating. Very light and bright—over looks Market Street below. Upstairs in the Four Seasons. Their main hotel restaurant. Close to shopping Westfield and Union Square.

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.

1) We made reservation for 7 for a breakfast meeting and was told there were no table for 7 for us through our entire meeting. (We can see many areas with empty tables.)
2) The coffee we asked for was never brought to us toward the end of the meal.
3) The light was blindly shine facing our eyes and no one pull down the blind for us.
We were disappointed by the service, the ambiance, and overall accommodation. This place might be just good for the hotel guests to grab a quick breakfast and not for the business meeting.

We came because the reviews were great and it was in the area we were staying in. We were sorely disappointed. Server took 10 minutes to get to the table after we were seated. We didn’t even receive water until after that. Cocktails took another 15 minutes. Ordered two appetizers and watched the busser walk around with bread to tables that had just been seated, while we had been there for almost 30 minutes and did not get offered any. The tuna appetizer was a joke. The dish is primarily blood oranges, there was very little tuna on the plate. The server recommended the burrata appetizer, saying it had a light breading on it. It was not what I was expecting at all. It could have used some seasoning and it had more of a ‘battered and deep fried’ consistency than ‘lightly breaded and flash fried’. We ended up just finishing the two appetizers and drinks and going to another restaurant because we didn’t want to stay for another hour when we weren’t enjoying ourselves.

From the moment the gracious hostess greeted us ‘til our server Raphael handed us the check, service was impeccable. The appetizers were mind-blowing and the entree portions generous. I don’t usually write reviews but an experience this good deserves to be acknowledged. Can’t say enough great things about MKT.
