    Busy night, long wait for tasty drinks. Husband ordered dry rub rib special. It came covered with messy bbq sauce. Good, but not as advertised. Ordered the burger. Tasteless! Salt shaker empty, waiter refilled it, but when it dispensed, it was wide open! Tough night for us as we really like this place.

    Stick to the basics and steer clear of the bread/rolls (frozen) and things like risotto (didn’t resemble real risotto). Menu is very large/varied - which is a good sign that not everything can be good. Service was fine definitely nothing worthy of commenting. Host/hostess staff were very friendly.

    Food was good. Only one dinner we were disappointed with but the waitress saw to it that it was deducted from our bill, which was very nice. However, service could have been better. The waitress never came back to our table to ask us if everything was okay with our meals.

    We went for an early dinner before my son’s high school graduation. The food was excellent and our waitress, Elyse, could not have been nicer. She graduated from the same school as my son, so they had that in common. We would definitely dine here again and we’ll ask to be seated in Elyse’s section if she is there!

    Service was very good. Sergio is a thoughtful, personable server. Both of us ordered Short ribs which were not available. We both then ordered salmon with risotto. The salmon was good but the risotto was "chalky." The shrimp cocktail appetizer was excellent and generous. Didn't much like the cocktail sauce.

    Nice looking place. Service was ok but not attentive and for those $ it should be. Apps were super hot and good. Fried Pickles lightly fried was a nice touch. Calamari was high quality. Truffle Fries were good but a pretty small portion for $9. All the dipping sauces were good especially the Truffle fry sauce. Main dishes were good but pricey for what they were. $22 for a chicken bowl that was at least 50% rice. Note to restaurant. Use less rice in a smaller bowl and lower the price. You are not fooling anyone by making a dish look nice(presentation was good on all dishes) and then when we dig in its 50% rice. Two of the five of us had bowls. My daughters boyfriend didnt like the Airline Chicken but hes a picky eater so I repurposed that the next day with all my left over rice!!! Drinks were nice and tasty if a bit overpriced. I think it was $51 for 4 drinks and beer. Service was just ok overall but drink service was especially slow which was off considering we sat at 830 pm and by the time we were done the place had like 15 people left with two bartenders. We also sat very close to the bar so no excuse there. 5 people with 5 drinks total was about $270 with tip. Not sure thats sustainable in the Shelton market

    Went back here for the second time yesterday afternoon. It's been about two months since I've been here. We started out with the chicken nachos which were good, it was a big portion so we ate about half and brought the other half home. I had the short rib risotto, I really enjoyed this dish the last time I was there so I figured I would get it again. Boy, was I ever disappointed. I kept moving the risotto around the dish looking for the short ribs and there was maybe one little tiny string a piece of short rib in the entire dish. The flavor was excellent but basically this was a meatless entree. I didn't send it back which was my own fault. I hope the manager sees this review and makes changes for anybody else it gets this entree. I was very disappointed and it's going to be a long time before I go back. I can't remember our server's name but she uses her “restaurant southern accent” and she was very nice.

    Our waitress was attentive, knowledgeable and promptly helped resolve concern. Calamari appetizer was cooked appropriately and was enjoyable. However our dinners were unfortunately not properly cooked. My husbands rice was hard snd undercooked however he chose to eat it anyway. My halibut was so overcooked it was rubbery and difficult to eat, thus the waitress got a properly cooked replacement, which was just ok tasting. It was a weeknight and although reasonably full not seemingly busy enough to warrant this degree of missteps, particularly for the price charged.

THe setting was comfortable and the food was out of this world delicious! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!

    Marketplace is beautiful, staff is wonderful. Foods a little pricey but completely yummy. Only drawback ? They cannot seen to get the fries to the table hot. Been there three times now..had to send them back each time. I cannot fathom how people eat cold fries.. other than that? I’ll be back..

    Overall experience was ok….drinks are expensive and watered down and food was ok. Waited almost a hour between our appetizers and entrees being served. Felt a bit disappointing based on previous experiences at the Danbury avid Woodbury locations.

    1st time = great. Last Night = Poor. Busy Friday but not insanely so and there were plenty of servers. Our server was not attentive. Never asked if we wanted additional drinks. We had to ask for bread, even though the other tables received it..and only received 4 rolls for 5 people. We ordered an appetizer. App never came...even after I asked them to check. Salad with chicken came...without chicken. We were comped the app and chicken, but considering Marketplace charges more than the surrounding establishments I expected better. Not eager to return anytime soon.

    Came here for Mother’s Day the night before and made a reservation knowing they’d be packed. I was worried the service would be slowly but they were definitely on their A game. Food was delicious (though I’ve eaten here before and the protein portion of the meal always feels a bit small compared to the sides. I had the roasted chicken and there could’ve been more meat and less potatoes.)

    Bar seating is our preference for the lively ambiance but today we were treated to a bar seat near the open doors to the patio area. Best of both worlds! Disappointed to find that the braised short rib entree is no longer on the menu but it did force me out of my comfort zone. I grudgingly chose another “can’t miss” entree, plus short rib poutine and was summarily delighted all around. Our perfectly attentive waitress made sure of that. Can’t wait to go back! ❤️
