The scallops were not fresh.
Too much undercooked garlic in some of the dishes.
Nice service and good wine.

My sister was visiting from out of town. Very friendly and Alfie was superb. Knowledge and experienced server. Setting lovely but sat by server station so a bit annoying. Did not like the liquid gazpacho. Crab cake good, bruschetta average. Crab sandwich and French dip good. Raviolis delicious. Butterscotch pudding to die for!

Great service, amazing food, fabulous wine!

We had the crab cake appetizer which was utterly delicious and we wanted more! I had the tuna tartare for my main and loved every bite.

The only reason why 4 v. 5 stars is for the unnecessary whip cream on their otherwise scrumptious butterscotch pudding dessert and the BBQ sauce was a bit too overwhelming for the ribs.

Overall, Market is incredible and we will be returning.

We had the best chicken salad in the Valley. My wife, a former winery owner, swooned over the wine choice. The service is like being treated as if we are their favorite customer.

Market checks all of the boxes for a great restaurant experience. Our server was attentive and friendly. The food was very good and reasonably priced by Napa standards. Drinks were creative and very good. My wife wanted to slightly alter her drink to by adding another ingredient and was allowed to do so without question. The background music was Motown and at a level that could be heard but not disturbing. Overall solid dining experience

Love this place! We have been here several times when in the area, and it never disappoints. Delicious and creative, but not pretentious menu. I also like the casually elegant atmosphere with the brick walls. It's a nice restaurant, but they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. On this visit, I had the heirloom tomato and watermelon salad (which is seasonal) and the flat iron steak special with blue cheese mashed potatoes - oh so good! And, don't forget the homemade butterscotch pudding in the waffle cone bowl! It's a fairly small place, so reservations are recommended.

One of the best meals I’ve had in the Valley- totally worth driving a couple mins south of St Helena for. This place is a real find. We will definitely go back!

Our waiter, Jeremy, was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable representative for Market. Service was outstanding. It is a pleasant space for dining. Food was mixed. The burger was outstanding and I got a nice sized amount of salad with it instead of fries. The fish tacos (2) ordered by my husband were marginal...small, little cabbage, missing the great flavors that are typically expected. My husband ate half of my lunch to supplement. So, listen carefully to the waiter’s suggestions!

I come here a couple times a year, usually the food is great. This time a couple things we dissappointing...the Caesar salad was way overdressed and the shoestring potatoes, were not flavorful or appetizing. Regular French fries or onion rings would be a better side for the filet.

If your a vegan visiting Napa please do not consider visiting this restaurant even after I emailed the chef and informed. I was told to let server know upon arrival which I did. Nothing was prepared special as many other restaurants do and was informed to order the veggie plate which was not acceptable for a dinner. Wine and service was awesome. Please consider doing a little more for vegans visiting.

We started with the jalapeno cornbread - it could have used a little more jalapeno taste but otherwise it was excellent. It is served with honey on the side. The honey was great addition. I had the burger from the comfort food side of the menu. The beef was very good and it came out medium rare as ordered. My wife had a salad which she said was very good but a little smaller than she expected.

I enjoyed the meal. I had a fancy hamburger that was pretty good, lacked a bit of beefy flavor, but was overall ok. The french fries were ok. I'm not a fan of thin fries. They are mostly just salt and grease. The fruit soup was ok, nothing special. I had butterscotch pudding for dessert, that was not very good. Too much starch, it tasted gummy and grainy. It's a comfortable place if a little noisy. Service as very good.

This is one of our favorite restaurants of all times. We have dined here multiple times -at least 10 times in 6 months since discovering this little gem - and highly recommend it to anyone visiting St.Helena/Napa Valley. The chef is also the owner, and his creations are incredible. The staff is attentive and kind, and the wine selection is good too! The dinner menu is excellent but brunch is my favorite. Small tip: if you order beef, have it cooked one level up from what you usually do because they tend to cook on the rarer side. You will not be disappointed in this restaurant.

Wonderful lunch! Nice place to celebrate my niece’s birthday. Friendly wait staff. Good food. Especially enjoyed the strawberry soup and the chopped salad. Everyone loved their lunch from fried chicken to French Dip to crab sandwiches. Refreshing lemonade. Nice touch with dark cherry sorbet with birthday candle. Thank you, Market restaurant staff and chefs! Bravo!

We had supper here after reading lots of great reviews.

Staff were great with plenty of reccomedstions.

Price was reasonable for the area and they do not charge a corkage fee to try some of the local wines you purchase by day.

We will go back on our next visits.
