Curry white fish soup was amazing! Main course- meatballs were odd tasting and potatoes were homestyle hash browns covered in spaghetti sauce - not good at all!

Friend had shrimp with sweet potatoe mash- she said it was ok

I have to say that the food was exceptional! Fantastic flavor profiles with our appetizers!

As the restaurant got busier the noise level increased dramatically! However it did not take away from how fantastic the food was!

Will recommend MRKT to all of my friends!

Different and unique. Enjoyed the casual setting with great food and service. Booth seats get
a little hard after a few mins. , retrieved a seat pad and all was well. Fun experience.

The food was very good and despite a modest choice, the bases were generally all covered.

Presentation was good and the flavor combinations were very good. the dishes that we had were prepared just right.

the café was a bit loud but that covered conversations at adjacent tables. décor was very modest.

all in all a good dining experience.

This was my third time at MRKT. Service was good. Friends had the mussels, which they raved about. I had maple meatballs, which were flavourful and well-cooked. The baked goats cheese was also excellent. Good wine list, with a few great by-the-glass options.

I wondered why the restaurant was dead on a Saturday evening but then ended up waiting a long time for an underwhelming and small portioned dinner. The flavors were good but i left there hungry and paid way too much.

Would try lunch there if around the area, but no value for dinner.

We dined at MRKT with friends before a concert/show and we were very pleased with the restaurant. Service was incredible with our server being very knowledgeable, friendly and able to make great recommendations. The charcuterie board was generous and the meals delicious. This is a great restaurant - the only drawback we found was the overall ambience; this is a great place if you are looking for a fun, casual evening however if you are looking for something quieter and more romantic another venue may be better. We found the tables quite close together and because we had a very lively group right beside us it was difficult to enjoy the company of our friends. I think a solution might be for the server/hostess to seat the tables further apart when the restaurant is not busy however having said this I would still recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

This was my first experience at MRKT and for me it was a great beginning. Wine list was great and food options looked very appealing. I enjoy my selection for dining and my wine. The noise level was a bit to contend with for a quiet conversation. Having said that, the energy in the room had an infectiousness to it.

This is a small place with a great atmosphere. The food is amazing and well worth it! Definitely worth returning too. It could get noisy if a large group is there but nothing over the top.

I've had great experiences here for special intimate evenings and group dinners as well. The service is the best I've received in the city, and the cocktails are all made to near perfection. The o my criticism I could offer is that the menu is not large, and could be changed a bit more often. Would highly recommend MRKT.

We were the first people at the restaurant for an early dinner before a show. All it took was for three other people to arrive for it to become very noisy. I don't know if they were the loudest people on earth or if it's the acoustics, but by the time there were six other people in the restaurant, we could hardly hear ourselves talk.

Food was good, orcheietta was bland and unfortunately that's what most of us ordered. Prawns were excellent. Cheese & charcuterie, melty cheese and roasted tomato bruschetta were delicious.

Music was WAY too loud. Service was rushed and sloppy. Our plates were quickly thrown in front of us.

The service was attentive, the food a high-quality finish and a great selection of wine & other drinks. A nice combination of big & small plates makes accommodating all kinds of palate needs pretty easy. Ambiance was excellent. We had a table of 26 beside us and while it get a tad noisy, prior to that, it was comfortable. Not that it was uncomfortable with the large group, just noticeable. But the food was top-notch. I would absolutely go again. If using a Maps App to find it, signage out front is not apparent and walking up a handful of stairs is necessary. "Where is this place?" Did come to mind and I had to call to confirm; however, it was easy after that. Oh--free, 2-hour parking on Jasper Avenue right in front definitely helped!

This was the first time the 4 of us have ever been there, we were excited to try a new place and heard great things of mrkt. The food and drinks were amazing- we shared a tasting board then each got the prawn dish. Again the food was delicious. Our service was lacking. Our dark haired server -whose name I do not know because she never bothered to introduce herself-, was for lack of a better word a very sour individual with a poor attitude. She was rude and short. At some point we asked her to take a picture of the group to which she quickly replied she has to go "check on her big table", and ran off. We didn't bother to ask again when she returned later, nor did she offer. Overall, the food was amazing too bad the service was disappointing.

It was way too loud in this restaurant. I had to shout at the rest of my party sitting across from me. The food was really great. But I booked the reso ahead of time and they stuck us at this huge large table and we were sitting beside people we didn't know. It was a special occasion, so being able to talk to everyone would have been great. Not really impressed. Great winews menu though

The food was incredible, had the maple bourbon meatballs and potatoes. And the toffee cake for dessert. Both were unreal, and the restaurant itself had a great atmosphere which was not too loud and very modern also. My wife and I will definitely go back!
