Amazing and attentive service. Great food. Portions are small. Loved the atmosphere. This is a hidden jewel. You would not expect this type of restaurant because of the location. But WOW!!!

Absolutely fantastic service. Waitress was polite and attentive to my table as well as others. Food was amazing and desert decadent. It’s on the expensive side but definitely worth it. You definitely get what you pay for. Coming back for sure. But the best pet was the ambience love the dimmed lights.

My boyfriend and I had a dinner reservation for our late valentines date due to work schedule. The place was nice food was good but it was a little loud. We were seated next to the bar and it was packed.

Third time coming here because I absolutely love the food here. I make reservations every time just because it’s a popular place. I will say this time around they tried to seat us in the bar area which was weird because the last couple of time I made a reservation we sat in the dining area which is where I like to sit. We kindly asked the host to seat us in a different area and she just had this look on her face like it was so hard to do. Other then that...waitress Tana was amazing and the food was delish and perfect!!!!

Food was good, though the guacamole or avocados was too much for the tacos. We had reservations and they sat us in this tiny table right next to another two people when there were plenty of open tables around us. I get keeping people closer for the servers is easier but we were so close mine and the women’s purses were basically touching, it just made out “romantic” dinner no so romantic. Service was fine he was quick but not super friendly, just got in and out which is fine. Overall we will probably try it out again.

We had a great time at Market Tavern. We celebrated Valentines day here. Not only do we eat here for special occasions but whenever we are wanting fabulous food and fantastic service. Marcos is by far an extremely attentive server and pays attention to details. Wonderful experience. Definitely will be returning.

Our service was amazing. We made a reservation for 2 and were seated right away. We ordered the skirt steak and pork chop mains. Didn’t mind a bit of a wait for our food. The soup and mains were delicious. Just wish there was more variety when it comes to appetizers and main dishes. Overall everything was great. Definitely will be recommending and coming back!

Even though I was not pleased with my main course, I have been there before and enjoyed their lunches. The beverages are outstanding, and the salads are delicious. However, they do not know how to make mashed potatoes or sauces. I ordered the fresh cod with a lemon and caper sauce along with mashed potatoes. There was no taste to the sauce, and my mashed potatoes were watery. I regret now not expressing my dissatisfaction, but our waitress was so sweet and very attentive. I didn't have the heart to send it back.

It’s seemed a little rough around the edges on the outside. But inside is amazing, nice atmosphere, I like the open kitchen so you can see the cooks making the food. Definitely coming here again for a date

It was smoky when we first arrived. We were seated near the pizza oven. My husband’s Ribeye steak was chewy @ $42. He let the waiter know. No replacement or discount was offered, not even a free dessert. The fish dinners were excellent.

Wife and I went to Market Tavern for a date night. It was our first time trying it and we were kicking ourselves for not trying it sooner. The food was pretty amazing and the staff was very friendly. Will be back again very soon.

This is the third time we’ve been to Market Tavern. Every time our food has been excellent. I tend to order certain foods over and over at different restaurants and their Brussels sprouts are honestly the best I’ve ever tasted. Which is saying a lot since I’ve ordered them off of a LOT of different menus. Service is always friendly and helpful. This time we went next door to their market and brought home a couple of dinners. We haven’t had them yet but know they will be great too.

Fried chicken sandwich was greasy and overdone. Waiter was pretty much non existent and non attentive. Twice we had to search for him. I had a reservation and was seated in the noisier "Bar" area. I have eaten many times before this was a lousy experience

It is always a pleasure to dine at Market Tavern. Certainly one of the best restaurants in Stockton. The food was good, the noise level low but still the room felt energetic. I had the wild mushroom pizza...yumm! I highly recommend. We live in Lodi and when we dine in Stockton, it is here.

Really looked forward to an upscale restaurant in Stockton. As a long time resident, have found it difficult to find a sophisticated place. The menu and presentation is interesting, the prices are very high, which I don't mind as long as the experience is compatible with the pricing. My complaint is this, the bass/club style music is so loud, such a din, so pervasive and annoying that it's almost impossible to carry on a conversation with your dining partners. Brought my Dad to dinner, he couldn't hear a word I was saying. I looked around, diners were leaning across the tables trying to hear each other speak. I really don't get it . Spoke with friends of mine, they all say the same thing. They were looking for a special occasion, destination restaurant and are basically blasted out of any conversation by the pounding club music. All good I guess, unless you're paying 12.50 for a drink and trying to converse with friends. Too bad because the food was above average for Stockton.

Best breakfast we have had in a long time. The 2 of us are vegetarian and vegan, and they actually had options for us. Pricing was better than a nationally known breakfast chain.

We love Market Tavern. Husband had Stockton Restaurant Week Special. Vegetable lasagna was great, huge beet salad and tasty cheese cake. Daughter and I had excellent Skirt with those awesome garlic mash potatoes. Left overs were almost as good the next day. We will be back.

This is as good of a place as you would ever want to go.

The food is tasty & fresh, the service people are pleasant, the ambience is comfortable and it is reasonably priced.

I’d like to bring my business associates here along with friends and family.

Wild Mushroom pizza was excellent. Lamb cheesesteak sandwich was very good; could have done without the hot red pepper though. Waiter was very good; service seemed a bit slow. Overall, it was a very good experience. Our first time there. Would go back.

The restaurant remains *consistently good* on all marks. Consistency is very important to us, and the hallmark of our "regular" haunts.
