The only reason it wasn’t a five star all the way across was the server recommended the gnocchi as ‘little pillows of goodness’. So we tried them (the special of the day) only to find them breaded and deep fried and more like bar food and not fine dining. I believe our table of three ate three.

I was in with friends for brunch. I had the flank steak and eggs. The flank steak was tender and flavorful as served sliced across the grain. I was pretty disappointed by the portion size, about 3 oz. Add on two eggs and potatoes, it didn’t measure up to the $24 price.

I would have given them 1 star for value, but I understand it is the Napa Valley and expect to pay more.

Service was outstanding.

Market manages to balance the excellence of creative cuisine and comfort food. The ambiance is beautiful with a brick-faced bar leading to a posh dining room. We appreciate the number of corner tables so a couple can be close and still see each other. We started with crab Dungeness spring rolls which are fresh rolls with asparagus and crab, also served with a minty sauce. The textures were for the most part hearty and delicate. The asparagus is a little green to add much, so it's okay. For dinner, I ordered two appetizers. The watermelon heirloom tomato salad was a great spin on a Caprese salad. The flavors popped with every bite. It's served as a twoer which is about 8 inches high and drizzled with balsamic. My other choice was the two ahi tunas. One was a salad with mushroom and the other was a tuna tartare. Extremely flavorful and fresh. My husband ordered the fish and chips, made with lingcod (his favorite fish) and plentiful. I asked the server to pick a merlot for me and she selected the ideal local wine to go with the meal. My husband got the tiramisu for dessert and the flavors were rich rather than sweet. We love Market. It's our go-to restaurant in the wine county.

Dropped in after wine tasting and had an absolutely wonderful time. Let me start with the server, wow what great energy and knowledge. The ambiance was perfect for catching up with our friends. The food was fantastic, presentation and taste were spot on. If you haven’t been here, go. If you have been here, go again. Either way the experience is worth it. We will be back.

Traffic was bad called and said that would be 10-25 late. Was told no problem-very busy weekend and was no problem. Lunch was just what was needed after a long drive. Cauliflower soup of the day followed by crab cake appetizer, fish tacos and other dishes perfect.

A great restaurant. Friendly, attentive service. We made a reservation and were seated right on time. Nice wine selections. Prime rib and filet were cooked perfectly. They came with two delicious sides. We will definitely go there again when we are in St. Helena.

Thank you very much. We only had 45 minutes to eat before a meeting. Your staff was super helpful and we made it on time to the meetings with full bellies. Food was well prepared and fresh, of course. Thank you very much to our server Alfie for making this happen. Patrick

We traveled from FL and met with friends who live locally at Market. Service was a little slow, but it was very busy, especially considering it’s a Saturday. Our dinners were very good. My fav remains the chopped salad! Appetizer of bay shrimp with avocado, spicy tomato sauce, and cilantro was wonderful. My friend said the ravioli with mushrooms was very good. Our only regret is that Alfie wasn’t our server as we had requested. We only get into town once a year, so we were disappointed we didn’t get to visit with him.

This is our 2nd straight visit to Market while visiting the Napa area. It was our favorite meal of the trip during the last visit and it was our favorite lunch this visit. We had a full schedule but made sure that we reserved time for this lunch. Lunch consisted of their terrific burger topped with fresh avocado and bacon as well as fish tacos (red snapper was one of the two types of fish). We are already thinking about our next visit.

This was the first time in a long time that both my husband and I left the restaurant without eating our food. The meatball was hard and dry on the outside and nearly raw on the inside. The ratatouille was like paste. No texture or flavor. The short ribs were the worst I’ve ever had. They were dry and the sauce was too sweet. It was a very unhealthy mix of ingredients. Not what you’d expect in the upscale town of St. Helena. The price was high as well considering the caliber of cooking. We won’t go back. I felt deceived by the high review I checked to choose this place.

Food was good and the selection interesting but portions were on the small size and the chef over salted everything. Not a bad experience but it could have been much better. Our server was terrific and made up for our disappointment in the food.

It was fascinating to see such a variety of customers attracted to the diverse food choices and beautiful, yet subdued, atmosphere. There we romantic couples, groups of old friends, foodies trying out the cuisine, families with children, locals, and tourists. It is a must visit once you are in the Napa Valley.

Perhaps it Was an Off Day for Market
I have had great food and service at Market in the past. But not this last Sunday. The server presented the options very well and was well informed. He aptly described the Bloody Mary as the best in the Valley. But he was let down by his kitchen and by the servers who have the task of bringing out the food. My brunch omelet was such a great combination of items that is was sure to hit the mark. But when overcooked, or maybe left sitting under the lamps for a while, anything can be disappointing. One of our four lunches did not arrive with the other three and still had not almost 10 minutes later. The "good" news is that the fish and chips dishes were already cold, so waiting did not make them any worse. Mmmm, cold fried fish and cold fries, what is not to like. No one asked how everything was and no one expressed concern about our long wait staring at three quarters of our food.

Quite a gem in St. Helena, CA. We were in between wine tasting appointments and the server actually asked when we were seated if we had an appointment we needed to be at after lunch and made sure we were done in time. Food was delicious!

This was our first time visiting Napa and Market was recommended on our first night. We loved it so much, we came back the next night for dessert and drinks and again for Sunday morning brunch! Not only is the food amazing and fun, but the staff are all extremely friendly and accommodating! We will totally recommend this place to all of our friends traveling to Napa Valley.

We have always been treated good at the Market. Our recent visit was no exception we were warmly greeted at the door and decided to eat at the bar instead of our reserved table. The bartender was attentive and we were taken care of immediately. The food came out in a timely manner and eveything was wonderful. We will continue to eat at the Market and will recommend it to our friends.
