Farm-to-table
We endeavor to honor the culinary traditions of the Mediterranean, in a way that pays homage to our actual home in the Midwest. The pintxos bars of San Sebastian, the trattorias of Rome, the bistros of Paris, and the aperitivo bars of Turin all inspire what we are trying to channel on a daily basis, just here in Columbus. But in weaving a culinary experience of our own design, our goal is to pay homage to Old World flavors by sourcing at least 90% of our menu from farms, purveyors, and foragers who live in our local and regional backyards.

We are students of our craft, and through the lens of this tumultuous year, one thing came into focus: breaking bread is essential to a joyous life. We believe life’s greatest indulgence is the simple pleasure of great food and wine, amongst the company of friends and family with passionate service. Join us!

We had a great time at the new The Market. We pretty much did tapas shareable items from the meatballs, to the devil eggs, both were amazing. The shoshito peppers was a hit as well. Drinks top notch. Happy hour on a Saturday was until 7pm so that was a good surprise.

Great small local high-end restaurant. Atmosphere and decor are gorgeous. All the staff are knowledgeable, pleasant and fun. Menu had lots of variety for the size of it and great vegan options for the vegans in our crew. 10/10 will eat here again.

Very cool place tucked away from the short north! Lots of great flavors with a different flair than typical Columbus fare.

Highly recommend! The chef moved to Columbus from Chicago - would be great to see this place take off and do well!

Alex is awesome! Second time back with same server and both times treated so well. Food is great, though a bit on the pricier side for the portions. Pours are decent and the cold brew & mimosas are a must for brunch. Will be back again

We have been wanting to come down to Italian village area to have dinner here and we had finally made it! The food the service, and Chef Carlos stopping by was awesome! The 6 of us ordered the pork roulette, the chicken liver mousse, wagu beef tartare, deviled eggs, and cucumber 2 ways to start and it all was AMAZING! Then we ordered our entrees, meatballs, pork belly, walleye, shrooms, chicken sausage and the handmade pasta DELICIOUS! Everyone loved everything they had ordered and our server Alex was spectacular of a server. Totally energetic, fun and so much great info about the menu. We finished our dinner with the creame brûlée and the chocolate torte. We can’t wait to return to this place and see what the chef has for us! It’s seriously the most fresh and eclectic menu and innovative food in town

Creative and fresh food, good service, nice interior. Smaller plates (like tapas) allow more variety. Been twice in the last week, hope to make it back monthly at least. Air conditioning is a bit over the top. Until they regulate it a bit, keep your arms covered to avoid discomfort.

The food was excellent, but our service was so uncomfortable. Our server was condescending and honestly rude to multiple people at the table. For example, one of us asked her “what are the wagyu and pork meatballs” and she replied “what do you mean what are the meatballs? They’re exactly what they say”. Obviously, we wanted more of a description and how big it was. It made the experience so awkward that I sadly would never return.

Jenna, while I was terribly disappointed to read negative feedback about the issues with your service, I am grateful you saw fit to provide it. We are the type of establishment that is always going to prioritize an excellent experience for our customers; having said that, we can't get better or fix problems if we don't get wind of them, so thank you. Condescension & rudeness are not in keeping with our brand. We hope you'll give us a chance to do right by you during a future visit. - Andrew, GM

Glad to visit this restaurant after the re-opening. Really great fresh menu with a lot of staples that were very solid. Not too heavy or overly salted for comfort style options and all with fresh twists. Our favorite was the wagyu meatballs and the desserts (get them all and share). The best upgrade was the dining experience with redesigned interior and friendly knowledgeable staff. Service was excellent and we will be back!

What an awesome experience at the newly remodeled The Market. Our server Andy was very attentive and had great suggestions for wine and food. My salmon was delicious and my wife’s pork chops were great too. Seems to be on the pricier side when it comes to drinks but it was a great experience overall. The new interior is awesome and had a really cool vibe. We will definitely be back

The happy hour appetizers were very good. We ordered a nice bottle of wine. But our server never came back to check on us or take our dinner order. He never even made eye contact with us. Eventually after we had finished the bottle of wine we just asked for our check and left. Very strange but because of the food we would recommend the place.

Like the reboot of The Market. Menu is interesting. Food is tasty. Only thing I did like was the very dark booth where we sat. Turn up the lights a bit - please! I felt like I was dining in a coal mine

Both myself and friend had the frittata. Could have been a bit heftier of a meal. It was very good, but overall small. Maybe more greens and toast or something. Mimosa and coffee where great. Service okay, server not overly friendly, manager was awesome to stop by and chat with. Would like to see another egg centered, healthy option on the menu. Otherwise so glad you have re opened! Will be back.

So glad you had a fantastic brunch with us! The seasonality of the menu means the sweet potato poutine has recently been phased out, but the good news is that some wonderful options have replaced it. Truly appreciate your positive feedback, and we will endeavor to keep that excellent track record going when you come back in. - Andrew, GM

Loved the aesthetic; food was just okay; yummy cocktails; music too loud and had to yell to my dinner partner; windows need shades because when the sun is going down it’s blinding and I had to move to my sister’s side of the table.

I've been a fan of the market for a while and am familiar with their previous iterations. So, I was excited to have the opportunity to dine with them on their first night open since the remodel. Wow! The renovations are stunning. The decor, a cross between memphis and retro, is warm and inviting, yet sophisticated. A theme that has been carried over to their new food and drink menus. The new chef has done amazing work reimagining and elevating the Market's cuisine. I look forward to a potential tasting menu and wine pairing in the future. The evening was made complete by the warm hospitality we recieved. The servers, led by the manager, Andrew, are all quite knowledgeable and amicable. We cannot wait to go back!
