    I had the Wood Grilled Octopus (so tender!) and the Beet & Citrus Salad. Both were outstanding. My family also ordered the salmon, mac and cheese, the short ribs, Ceasar salad, hummus, and one of the desserts. Everything was great. But I must comment that the young woman who was our server did the best job of anyone serving me in the last couple of years. She did everything right. So I left a tip of around 33%. Well deserved.

    Market Tavern is our go to restaurant in Stockton. I love their food and always have a great experience. I do wish they would freshen the menu a bit, particularly brunch on Sundays and I miss the seasonal cocktails. Overall, their food is delicious and I enjoy going.

    Thye have the best food/ brunch. Usually, I make reservation due to it is too far away from our house; however, The 1.5 hours drive is worth it. We usually get their brunch special. Must have - The BEC and the so worth the drive French toast. Love this place! If you are into bloody mary- you must try theirs!

    Drinks came very late, not what was expected. Appetizers ordered but no little plates to put them on to share. Wanted our orders when we had still not recieved our drinks. Some of the drink garnishes very bitter. Once food ordered it took long time, was not offered bread/butter which would have been very nice, when asked oh yes no problem when in the middle of the meal. Food not bad, but you can do better. It will be awhile before we return... also on the pricey side especially drinks. If I was asked, I would say not bad...but I wouldn't give you great reviews.

    We've been to Market Tavern many times in the past and it has ALWAYS been a great experience. Last night was enjoyable except for the noise coming out of the pizza oven area. The woman cooking pizzas (which are always very good) was out of control with the pans. It seemed like she was upset at the pans for some reason. The sudden BANG of the pizza pan caused everyone of the guests seated along the back row of tables to jump because they were startled. Extremely unacceptable and ruined the ambiance of the dining room and the entire evening at an otherwise great restaurant. We asked our server if she could mention to the woman making pizzas to lower the noise coming from throwing the pizza pans around. Her first reaction was "Well, it is an open kitchen". We responded that the noise of the pans were way beyond what one would expect coming out of the kitchen. Your neighborhood pizza joint doesn't even startle their guests with pans being thrown around. The server reluctantly spoke to the pizza woman, yet the throwing of pans did not subside. She kept throwing pans, making the entire back wall of guests jump with every bang of the pan. I felt as if the staff's attitude was "oh well, your request to stop the pans being thrown is not important to us" Upon leaving the restaurant, we asked to see the manager who was not in at that time. We spoke to the assistant manager who listened to our complaint. He advised us too that the noise is what guests need to expect from a kitchen that opens up to the dining room. I'm not sure we'll be returning to the restaurant anytime soon which is a shame. We love the food and usually love the ambiance. But if you're going to spend that kind of money for beautifully cooked food, you would think that you would have a relatively quiet dining room and a responsive staff who could get the pizza girl to stop throwing the pans and startling the guests.

    My second night of dining at the Market Tavern. The dish that I had is outstanding. The Rigatoni-Sausage, two nights in a row and then over to their market area to grab a take home version of this dish. And the price is not bad for the area. I think the noise level was too loud as it would be hard to have conversation with the music background.

    I was denied a table change to a booth; as per the hostess, these were saved for groups of four. The restaurant was not busy. There were two booths that sat empty for 20 minutes, and over the next 10 minutes, two more cleared and sat empty. All these booths were then filled with parties of two. When I asked to speak with the hostess to see what had changed in policy from when I initially asked, I was given a 'canned' unauthentic response. Unclear if I was denied a table change as the table we were given was saved for OpenTable reservations only, or if I received bad service.

    First time at Market Tavern for brunch. We went for Father’s Day. We had the eggs Benedict which is, in our opinion, the best in Stockton. We also tried their donuts which were delicious! The service was efficient and friendly. Looking forward to another visit soon!

    The food is ALWAYS amazing, and brunch didn't disappoint. Tried the skirt steak with chimichurri and it will become a regularly ordered item; also had the donuts for the first time and will be getting those again, too. If it's your first time going to their brunch and you want something sweet - go for the banana foster french toast. Drinks are always delicious and fresh, service is attentive without being over-bearing, and the atmosphere is really nice but also feels comfortable, not stuffy. Always coming back to Market Tavern!
