First time to Market for guest from Pasadena. She said she'll return next time in St. Helena.
Alphie, server, made the evening...What a memory for the menu! And so friendly. He's great.
Crab rolls excellent...

Huevos Rancheros are the best. Service is very friendly. They make you feel very welcome and I highly recommend this restaurant.

Market's menu is interesting, and all the food was prepared well and was delicious. Although every staff member was friendly, the level of service was disappointing. It seemed like the kitchen was a bottleneck. We had to wait over 30 minutes to get our entrees, and we had to ask for bread twice to accompany our soups. All that being said, we'd go back solely because of the food, with lower expectations for service.

We visited as a group of eight post power outage and everything was great. Food, no corkage fee and energy of the room were terrific. A memorable final meal to our five day stay in the valley.

Market only got their power back 45 min prior to opening. With that in mind, the staff did a remarkable job pulling off a great experience. r

Celebrating our anniversary! The food is only surpassed by the service! Very lively, energetic place in the heart of St. Helena! Crab rolls are a MUST along with the Butterscotch in a cone!!

I normally don't give a restaurant of this caliber anything below 4 stars, especially since the food was outstanding. However, my friend who was wearing a crisp white blouse was the subject to a busboy dropping a bucket of serving pieces and splashing the back of my friend's blouse and leather purse. Our server took barely any interest and neither did the manager! The manager did offer dry cleaning however, we were on vacation, so this did not work, he offered this several times even after we told him it was not feasible to get the blouse dry cleaned during our time in Napa. Finally we received a complimentary bottle of wine. Service was great at first, but downhill from then on. It took over 30 minutes to get the second bottle of wine we ordered and no one checked to see if we were happy with our meals. Over all the appetizers were OUTSTANDING and the meals were above average. I wanted to love this place, but in the end, just couldn't do it. Beautiful atmosphere tho.

It had been awhile since my wife and I dined at Market. I had the cucumber soup (wonderful!) and the prime rib French dip sandwich (equally wonderful!) while my wife enjoyed the fried green tomato sandwich. She thoroughly loved it . I forget the waiter's name but he was about as attentive and you could possibly want as well as regularly replenishing our water and wine.
Small, intimate, excellent food and service makes Market a true neighborhood gem!

A favorite of mine in St. Helena and I always look forward to lunching there. This time, hurrah, they featured fried green tomatoes with mozzarella as a appetizer; I would drive miles out of my way to savor those at this time of year. Cocktails are well made, no corkage at lunch, service is prompt and friendly, can't ask for anything more (except perhaps more fried green tomatoes!).

Always our local favorite. They have recently raised their prices, which makes it a bit less attractive/affordable, but still, dollar for dollar, a good value and a strong contender for our local favorite.

Everyone there is incredibly friendly. Loved our waiter. Corkage fee is waived on first bottle. They keep wine chilled for you. Food was amazing. I don't think it even matters what you order. It'll be amazing. My husband enjoyed his ravioli while I enjoyed a grilled chicken sandwich. We had started with oysters which were a generous size and smooth and tender. Per recommendation from the waiter, we had butterscotch pudding for dessert and it was heavenly. Loved every bit of our experience and will be back.

Superior service entertaining make great suggestions. Everything was good that we ordered and we all enjoy cocktails that highlight our meal like they had a corkage that was reasonable. We all were pretty full so we got a butterscotch putting the share and it was phenomenal definitely try it!

Had Cobb salad which was OK. Fresh ingredients. However, salad dressing was not "dressed" well - too much underneath salad main ingredients and main cabbage/lettuce wilted (not crisp). But main ingredients were tasty and fresh.

Food & service was excellent. Had a reservation but only table available without waiting was at the entrance by the bar & front door which let in the very warm air. Server was knowledgeable and attentive. A gem in St. Helena!
