The Market Tavern is a really nice place to go that you want to have a brunch or a nice dinner! The food is really good, the patio super cute and people there are friendly. Would recommend it to anyone. I almost forgot to mention the delicious cocktails.

Although there were occasional lags between interactions with our server (longer than one might expect between ordering drinks and ordering entrées), it was nice to enjoy a relaxing meal and the service was excellent. Everyone who we interacted with was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and enjoyed by all of us. Will be back!

Took a chance on dining outdoors and it was quite comfortable. As always the service and food were excellent! Servers are very friendly and helpful. If you’re craving a lamb burger that’s the place to go.👍

Although the food and outdoor seating is above average I do not recommend this restaurant for a leisurely dinner. I did not see the 90-minute time limit when making reservations nor the sign at the front of the restaurant and was unaware until the waitress notified us when finishing our dinner that we only had 20 minutes left if we wanted to order dessert. We had started with a cocktail and ate an appetizer prior to our main course with a bottle of wine. If I'm spending $100 a person on dinner the restaurant should allow patrons 120 minutes to enjoy their dinner and include dessert/coffee/after-dinner cocktail if so desired. This is my second visit in three months but will not likely return in the near future.

We had reservations for inside seating. But inside seating is very limited and we were being seated at a table literally 3 feet from the front door and next to the hostess stand. We asked to move outside as that table arrangement wasn’t comfortable. The hostess told us we would have to wait 10 to 15 minutes to move outside, which would have been cool if we had too wait for a table, but then she sat a walk in couple outside as we waited for a table. We got seated about 5 minutes later. The service from that point was great. The food was really good. Highly recommend the Brussels Sprouts appetizer. Would like to go back and try some of their other menu items.

Returning to Market Tvn now that indoor seating allowed. Good service as always; much appreciated how MT takes the effort to train their staff. Had the Ora salmon entree (very good), octopus (outstanding), bacon jalapeno Mac'n'cheese (very good; cavatappi with creamy cheddar sauce, crispy bacon dice and chopped chiles), griddled cornbread (slightly sweet, served warm with chile/honey butter). Only the chicken wings faltered: overcooked and dry despite tasty glaze. Winner was the Crispy B.Sprouts: first bite was "good", second bite "yeah, very good".....five minutes later, bowl was empty! Seasonings were perfectly balanced and the leftovers were even better, the dressing soaking the cooked leaves overnite. Ended with Lemon Blueberry cake and coffees - lovely to get a cappuccino made properly 'dry' without having to ask! One of the best restaurants in the Dublin/Pleasanton area, and great place to bring a group.

This is a go to after a long east coast to west coast flight. Great patio with a fire pit and olive trees separating the tables. The patio seems to be a bit quieter than indoor seating and has some quiet ambiance. The staff is prompt and attentive, quick with drinks and know their menu well. Decided to try the wood fired pizza and the market salad on this trip. The organic salad is a good portion for a starter and seems freshly made. Some silt or dirt in the lettuce added some texture, but I’d rather have that than box lettuce. The wood fired pizza was also a good size, nice bake on the bottom and crust enough to hold it to eat. The Italian had enough toppings to weigh it down about half way through, but switched to a fork and knife and finished it all. Great selection of meats, ample cheese and the Calabrian chilies gave it a mild kick. Cleaned my plate and enjoyed a nice glass of wine for “dessert”. Several visits and I’ll continue to come back -

The server was polite but clearly not empowered to change anything. Seated very near a frequently opening door from which cold air blew. When asked to substitute pasta for polenta, was told no as new chef won’t allow it. Manager was polite but also not able to make the customer right. Probably won’t be back.

Oh dear. They appear to have lost their outstanding Manager. The food remains good to very good.

However, the Service has deteriorated markedly. Shy of tripping a waiter up as she rushes by to get her attention, service is non existent. I would describe as transactional. The waiter arrives at the table. No pleasantries. Requests your order amd then almost literally runs away....

This place is delicious! Craft cocktails and great service. We ended up ordering a bunch of appetizers so that we can taste a variety of their offerings. Meatballs, tacos, brussel sprouts and a salad. Loved the tacos, weird to say but they were delicious and fancy!

The place is really nice inside and even has a little market with wines, beers and already prepared food. It’s a true gem, so glad we finally visited.

Our lunch was destroyed by an obnoxious group of loud women about twenty feet from us, and no one from the staff told them to hold it down.
We had a nice waitress. The food was good. Would I go back...yes.
