    Table of 4 with an 81yr old. We appreciated the fact that they were flexible on admitting us to stay downstairs to eat. No elevator on premises. Service was good and we had fun sharing a bunch of plates.

    We absolutely loved our experience at Dandelion Market. The staff was friendly and patient and answered all our questions. The food choices has something for everyone from salads to pasta and meat. We loved the small plate tapas style menu. This allowed us to try so many different options and each one was phenomenal! We will definitely be back.

    Overall the food was good. Really went to try the Bloody Mary bar which was okay but nothing super exciting. Our server wasn’t very pleasant and it seemed like she would rather be some place else.

    We had an incredible meal. Everything was absolutely delicious. The only thing I would change would be for them to slow down the delivery of the dishes a bit. It felt rushed instead of relaxed.

    My team had dinner with clients last night and everything about our experience was great. They were the one place that could host a group of our size at pretty much the last minute. The staff for kind, funny, helpful, and attentive. Everyone enjoyed the food and the drinks were tasty. Our clients were still talking about the experience today during meetings which is always a good sign.

    The service was slow for drinks and fast for food (although my salad came out immediately--even before I got my drink, everyone else got their dishes at random times and then my entree came out way later). It was really loud, but my crowd didn't mind. The food was AMAZING!

    Nice spot, especially with a group of friends. Menu and food was quite good, with good value. Since it is relatively small and bar is in same area as table, it can be very noisy. Service was slow and uneven, with some food coming out before drinks. With some small attention to detail it could be quite good.

    Good food, the serving sizes are just small (I ordered the Deviled Eggs and they gave me 2 eggs cut in half and they were $6 and the cauliflower bites and they gave me 3 pieces). Cute place though!

    This place is tapas style and we had 4 people. So with that comes the deviled eggs, pork belly, ahi tuna, sliders, seasoned green beans, and mac & cheese. It was incredible!

    My boyfriend and I were visiting the city and wanted to check this place out because we heard good things. The food was absolutely delicious, would 100% recommend going here to anyone. It does get busy fast especially around dinner time so I would recommend making a reservation. Our favorite item we got to share was the short ribs, 10/10.

    The food and the service was very good! The restaurant was very nice but our table was squished up against another several along the center of the restaurant making it sort of loud and making it not very private. We enjoyed the restaurant and food and would go back with a different table.
