My personal experience was not great. The food was ok. The service from beginning to end was bad. They are not friendly or kind there at all and the server would leave us for long periods of time. I also asked for something twice and she still forgot. When I showed up for my reservation I did not wear a mask as we are outside and when I have dined at other restaurants in Lincoln center such as Midgley’s and Papapavlo’s they did not require one . So the host at Market Tavern before greeting me or saying hi just says “ do you have a mask” I said no I’m outside and I can wait outside. He stated I have to have one to be seated which I think is ridiculous if we’re outside the whole time. He just wasn’t nice about it. When I go to other places in Lincoln center they are very friendly and have great customer service. This time, that was not the case.

First time experiencing bad service here. Food and drinks are good, will come again but...
Not sure if the waiter was having a bad day, but he only checked on our table once and that was after we asked staff clearing our table if we could order a drink, she said she would let our waiter know. He came like 15 minutes later and asked if we wanted desert, we said we would like to order another drink.. he took our order and brought our drinks out, approximately 10 minutes later he returns with the check (we weren't done ordering). Another person (I assume the manager) came out and took our check right after, I guess we extended our stay or were unwanted. I wouldn't have been annoyed if he wasn't constantly checking everyone else's table but ours. After we received our food, he only checked on us that one time. Will give them the benefit of the doubt, will still return. Besides service, everything else was good.

Market Tavern is one of our favorite restaurants in town. We went for bunch and the food was amazing as always. Service was quick, great options for brunch, and staff is always friendly. There is only outdoor dining available so the flies can’t be helped, but I highly recommend if you want great food.

Birthday dining during Covid. Ugh.
We were very fortunate to snag a last-minute reservation with OpenTable. Everyone in the area was booked all night. We always know the food here is good. Special of the night was New York steak. Very good. Husband has a burger which never fails. Service was extremely good. Dining outside is not awful, but, heat and sun glare and flies, are not optimum. But, we are just grateful to be able to eat out at a good restaurant which we know we love.

I and 1 person drove from Roseville and 2 persons came from Modesto and 1 from San Jose, had made reservations for 1pm, but did not get seated until 1:30 and we were celebrating a Birthday and brought our own cupcakes, which we usually do and we were told if we eat the cupcakes (which were very tiny - bite size) that we were going to get charged $1.50 per cupcake, keep in mind, we were not asking for any plates or napkins, I thought that was very rude. So we took our cupcakes to Starbucks and ate them there and gave them our $$ for the coffee!!! Doubt if we will be back!

The cup of coup looked like left overs, the stroganoff was bland, the combination plate of the skirt steak wasn't too enticing placing spinach instead of a mixed veggie on the side. For the price per plate, I would expect more ..

Another very nice dinner at MT! Our server was friendly and helpful. Our dinners (seabass special) was cooked perfectly. Maomi Pinot always great. So good to see MT with full tables and people enjoying themselves. We've always needed more outdoor dining and MT does it well. It would be nice post-Covid to keep the tents up during the warmer months!

I never go wrong with Market Tavern in Stockton. I order the ribeye steak sandwich. I normally order my steaks medium rare when I eat out as, I normally like it medium but every restaurant I go to always overcooks it. This is why I order it medium rare. Not Market Tavern my friend order the same sandwich at medium and it was cook perfect. My sandwich at medium rare was cook perfect.

Staff is very friendly and attentive. With Covid 19 going on their dining is outside. I like the idea that they had an open tent concept so your not expose to the cars in the parking lot. I am very impress how they considered our safety during this time and taking steps towards keeping their customers safe while providing excellent service.

We stopped here for lunch on a drive through CA and it will now be a must stop on all trips. The meal was so fresh and innovative. The team did an excellent job delivering service in the parking lot. I can only imagine how great it will be to eat inside when restrictions are lifted.

We always enjoy Market Tavern. I prefer brunch over dinner (and one of their creative bloody marys is almost a meal on its own). The low ambience score is due to pandemic-mandated outdoor dining, because it's basically tents in the parking lot and there's quite a bit of traffic in this shopping center. No fault of the restaurant and it didn't detract from the quality of the food or the service.

We love the Market Tavern. I had the best ever French toast at our brunch yesterday. My friend thoroughly enjoyed her pizza. If you want an amazing piece of lemon meringue pie you won't be disappointed with the Market Tavern slice.

Starter: Mexican street style corn

Entree: Wild Pacific Cod

Drink: Manhattan

The street corn was good. I liked the added pickled red onion on top, gave it a refreshing taste. The tortilla chips were probably my favorite part of the appetizer perfect amount of saltiness & crunch. The cod was really good, the lemon caper sauce gave it lots of flavor. It was flakey inside but had a good sear. Cooked to perfection. I just wished I had substituted the broccoli for the broccolini.

We love going to this restaurant when it was open for indoor dining, so we decided to try the patio dining. They did a nice job of trying to set up tables in the parking lot underneath a tent. Unfortunately we were sat at a table at the very end of their sidewalk next to the plants. The first thing we saw when we sit down, was how dirty the planter beside us was. The plants are covered in spiders and dirt and bird droppings. About 5 feet away was a large garbage can and cigarette disposal planter, along with the three large wood containers they kept their firewood in. I didn’t feel like I was in a restaurant that was going to end up cost me over $50 per person.
I asked to be moved to another table and after a little wait, we were moved. The ambience was much better there. They did not hand out menus and wanted us to scan a code and look at the menu on your phone. I understand the concept of not having to reuse menus. At 63 years old, I cannot read the menu on a small phone very well. We asked for and received a paper menu. Food was as good as it always has been, unfortunately the ambience and service was lacking for the price. I’m not sure I will go back until they move inside.
