Our Danish exchange student, who’s been to Italy multiple times, stated his pizza from Market Tavern is amongst the best he’s had. Bravo to Market Tavern for making world class dishes right in the heart of Stockton.

Food is great again. Service was average this time and the music was too loud. Couldn't hear the person sitting next to me.
I've had great experiences in the past. This time staff seemed more about talking with each other; especially the bar staff who presented as snobby and cold. We had to look for, wave down, wait for and ask for help at the bar and in the restaurant many times--which included getting the check. Once we got staff's attention they were helpful. The loud music ruined the evening for me. It was my birthday and I can't remember hardly a thing said because I couldn't hear the people at my table because the music was so loud.

We ate at Market Tavern several years ago and were impressed. When thinking of a place to take out-of-town guests, we decided to try Market Tavern again. After this experience, we won't be going back.

My wife's and my entree were good, but the service we received was sub-par. Our waiter wasn't very attentive (we had to order more drinks from other passing wait staff), and he brought the wrong dish of one of our guests (halibut, when he ordered salmon). Instead of apologizing and offering to quickly get a salmon dish, he asked our guest to give it a try, and that if he liked it, he'd comp the difference of the two dishes. If he didn't like it, then he could get him a salmon. This put our guest in an awkward situation because he felt like he was being pushed to eat a dish he didn't order.

It's unfortunate that we had this experience, because we many people speak highly of Market Tavern. I expect (and I'm guessing its management expects) a higher level of service by wait staff at a restaurant like this, and it's because of this low level of service that we don't plan on coming back any time soon.

Had a great meal, fish tacos so delicious. My other two friends first time visitors and they both enjoyed their meals. Appreciate the ambiance of the restaurant was very relaxing and allowed us to visit without having to talk over other patrons conversations.

Simply, wonderful. This is one of two kitchens we treasure in the black hole of cuisine known as Stockton. We had a superb waiter, Courtney, who was wonderfully attentive and helpful. The food was, as always, consistent and beautifully prepared. They even had some terrific fried shrimp on the daily special menu which I would gladly try again! Thank you, MT....

It was good but if you want a salad you have to pay for it. Way to loud. You have to yell. Very casual. Holes in jeans are permitted.

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 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.

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.
