A fantastic choice of comfort food in Napa, but an even greater if you are served by Alfie. He put a lot of passion as the main waiter in the restaurant floor. It has been a fantastic experience, greatly thanks to him!

Great Valentine’s dinner. Special menu surf and turf was great but I had braised short rib which was excellent. Butterscotch pudding was excellent. Noise was very manageable and waiter was excellent. Wait time for after dinner drink was too long. Thanks for making our date memorable.

We had a wonderful time at the Market. The food was delicious. We had the short ribs, fried chicken and the special, grilled swordfish. Tara, our waiter, really made the evening wonderful. The only hiccup was that the soup was only warm and not hot. Otherwise, it was a great evening. Look forward to going back.

Nice ambiance and good service. Don't get the sushi if you're expecting something to equal at lease an average sushi place. Also the "rotisserie" chicken tends to be on the underdone side, explained away as being that they use younger chickens--not so sure that rubbery, pink chicken can be attributed to the age of the animal. Stick with the basic comfort food and it will likely be OK (the meatballs were good).

Whenever we want comfort food, Market jumps to the top of the list. On a cold, rainy windy day in Napa Valley we were not disappointed. We generally go for the fried chicken or mac and cheese. This time we opted for the lamb shank [moist, well seasoned and delicious] and the baby back ribs [meat fell off the one]. Great diner, great staff, we will return.

Jesse was our main server and did an excellent job taking care of us. We were impressed with not only Jesse but with everyone that we interacted with, the server who brought out our food, the gentleman who removed our plates. They offered genuine customer service. The food was great as well! We will definitely be back.

We went to this restaurant for brunch. This was our first visit. Our waiter was very helpful in making recommendations. We shared the Market Salad and the Crab Cake. Both were excellent and complimented one another. They were unique, perfectly seasoned and balanced.. Service was outstanding, prompt but not rushed. We had the berry shortcake for dessert. I love a true shortcake biscuit. This one may have been left in the oven a minute or two too long and seemed a bit dry. A few more berries may have helped, but the vanilla ice cream that accompanied it was perfect. All in all a wonderful experience. We are definitely going back!

I am a business owner here in Napa. I have the Inn St. Helena on Main St. In my line of work I have a lot of influence over where my guests eat dinner. I send a lot of people to your establishment.
Roman has always appreciated my referrals and he has always made a fuss over my guests. They always come back with nice things to say. I am not happy that Mark does not seem to care one way or the other.

My boss ( the owner of Inn St. Helena) was in town and wanted to take me to dinner. Of course my first choice is always Market.

The waiter was very unhelpful. I asked him a few questions and each time he said no. I wanted my boss to have a taste of your amazing chopped salad . No he said. So then he basically ignored us and Mark had to take our order. I introduced my boss and he just blew her off. To say I was embarrassed is an understatement .

I have never expected anything for free. I send people to you because I truly believe you have the best of everything. HOWEVER I did share with Mark that it was my birthday.

So I had thought that Mark would comp the dessert but no .

When I bring business people to your restaurant I expect the level of service that Roman brings to your establishment. I do expect to be acknowledged and appreciated.

So we send people to you and you take care of my guests . If you are going to deliver a less than pleasant experience for my guests, then I will have to refer them somewhere else.

I want Roman back and if he is out then I have to rethink my referrals. The last thing I want is for one of my guests to be treated the way I was treated.

My best to you and your future with Mark.

Had out of country clients who had never been wine tasting. God only knows there are a lot of great restaurants in the valley to choice from. I chose the Market because first off I know the food would be great and their menu unique. Second location. Third wine selection and pricing.
We ate late in the afternoon (2) great service, great food.
