This has been our "Go To" place for family functions for about a year. It's also great place to meet up with friends, or a romantic meal with my hubby. Have enjoyed every experience and look forward to the next. My one criticism actually came from my son (who's there twice a week! And he's a cheese monger) was the Parmesan that topped the lobster ravioli was not grated fresh - seriously! We all lapped it up and enjoyed everything else as well! In a town filled with great places to go, this one is perfect for us locals !

Last night we dined at Market for the Monday night Prime Rib, and we sure weren't disappointed. The meal was delicious and the service, wonderful as usual. We are locals so we are a familiar face, and are always treated like family. All diners are treated with a friendly and caring manner, but, when you are a regular it is even more fun! I am always happy to recommend Market to friends, family and my clients!

The meals were very average. Fried chicken was bland, steak was cold and lacked flavor. Complimentary muffins along with the service were good. Expected more considering the area and price point. Just OK

Such a great restaurant, and usually able to get a table without a long wait. Great food, great service, and the owner often seats you himself. A real charmer in the darling town of St Helena!

The menu was both extensive and creative and every dish was prepared to perfection! If you're in (or near) St. Helena you can't go wrong selecting Market for a memorable dinner at prices that are more reasonable than the menu (and service) might suggest.

This was our first visit but it will not be our last . Wait staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and know how to be attentive, but not bothersome. We had a late lunch so we had a light dinner at the Market, but will go back for their baby back ribs. Great cocktails. My wife said her crab-cake was one of the best she has had.

We loved Market. The food is excellent. This was our 2nd time. It was quiet when we first arrived. Then they got busy all at once. It became disorganized. Our server didn't attend to us very well because of the rush. We put in the Open Table reservation that it was our anniversary. They didn't mention it. So I don't think they bothered to check the reservation information when we came in. My impression was that we were a table of 2 and the new people who came in were larger parties. The server paid attention to the larger party because he would get a bigger tip. We always tip at least 20%. The manager or owner who went around to talk to people should have pitched in made drinks and saw to it that everyone was taken care of.

We arrived 45 minutes early for our reservation but was still able to be seated. Host was friendly and courteous, The food was awesome, We had the Filet Mignon, got to say it was the best I have ever tasted! Didn't take long at all for the food and it was pretty busy. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the area!
