One Market Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Hadn't been to One Market in a decade. 'Love the look/feel and the staff was lovely. The food was awful. Steak was chewy to the point of sub-Outback w/o the tenderizer. The Sea Bass was tough/stringy. I eat Sea Bass all the time and never experienced this... not sure it even was Sea Bass.
It will be at least another decade. Too bad
We had the lunch special, two courses for $25. That’s a good value. The additional crab/butternut squash soup we ordered to share was $19, hence the 4 stars for value. Excellent service although the collision between the server and a bus person resulted in a glass of white wine getting spilled into Tom’s coat pocket of his leather jacket and hat that was in the pocket. Profuse apologies and offers to pay for dry cleaning followed. No permanent staining so no dry cleaning needed. Smoked brisket excellent. Skate in brown butter caper sauce good.
I hadn't been to One Market in a while and I was again reminded how good it is. I was there for lunch and had the quinoa salad; my friend had the crab cakes. Both were outstanding. The blending of flavors in the salad was wonderful. My only complaint is that it is very noisy, but that is common in restaurants now.
Very nice ambience. Paid $99 pp for Valentine’s Day and did not feel we got our money’s worth for the prefixe priced dinner. Neither of us liked the cabbage on the duck or the fish. Dungeness Crab salad was tasty but small. Apple torte and chocolate dessert were also both small portions but were very tasty. Zinfandel glass of wine was excellent for $16. Service was excellent. Enjoyed pianist although tried to sit farther away so we could hear each other talk.
I've dined here at least monthly for the last 3 years. Initially the food was very good. But in the last 6 months, the plate looks the same, but the food on the plate increasingly sucks.
This week I ordered the dry cured, bone-in NY strip medium rare. Part of it was medium rare, and the rest twitched when stuck with my fork. More importantly, this $45 piece of meat was extremely lean and 'CA via TX' tough -- like it walked here from there on a Jason Fung diet. If I want a collagen-rich diet, I can order Jello.
Who ever is in charge of the kitchen, they need someone new. In the interim, they need to deliver a credible ROI. Perha;s I will go back in 6 months and report if progress is being made. In the interim, go somewhere else.
One Market is a favorite in San Francisco and I've been enjoying their menu since they opened 25 years ago. It is always a special treat and this particular evening was exceptional plus half price off everything (including wine list, food, cocktails, etc.) to celebrate their 25th year. We started with oysters on the half shell and went on to enjoy day boat scallops, swordfish and beef cheeks, topped off by a selections of scrumptious desserts. It was all wonderful. The service, however, was spotty as this Friday evening was crowded and congested because of the special pricing offer whereas on a normal evening, it is spot on. I'm already planning my return visit.
One Market remains one of my favorite SF restaurants overall - beautiful setting at the foot of Market Street, reliably good food, excellent wine list and top notch service. On this occasion I had the grilled octopus. This was the best I'd ever had, and I've traveled extensively to Asia and the Mediterranean. Main course was day boat scallops that were incredibly fresh. One Market uses the freshest ingredients, and things that are simply grilled, seared or spit-roasted are wonderful. However, the accompaniments on the plate can be a little inconsistent. For example, the scallops came with spinach clusters that were a bit stringy, and the truffle jus was just mediocre compared to how great the scallops were. But all in all, this is still one of the best places in SF for any occasion.
a group of 3 persons dined at One Market on a special night for the restaurant--EVERYTHING was 1/2 priced, including wine and cocktails! Because of the 1/2 price night, we anticipated a less than stellar meal and service but were extremely pleasantly surprised. Cocktails, appetizers, main courses and desserts were all excellent and the service was terrific.
We will definitely return (even at full price).
We lunched on the day that One Market was celebrating its 25th anniversary with 50% off on food and cocktails. That was an incredible deal, as everything was really wonderful--but normally quite expensive--although they DO offer a two-course business lunch for $25 with optional $5 for dessert. We started with the best item: the most delicious and melt-in-one's-mouth octopus I have ever had, on top of an avocado mash and chorizo sauce. It was much tastier than I make it sound. We had a yummy potato-leek soup with trumpet mushrooms and nettles and then petrale sole in an Asian sauce with bok choy. Food and service were standouts. My cocktail wasn't what I had expected, but our server very graciously replaced it with a glass of wine that was fine. Prices, especially wine, were quite high, so I will return, but only for the business lunch or a special event.
I had the prix-fixe lunch with a wonderful potato-leek soup, beautifully served and then a delicious sole. You can indulge in a small portion of dessert for a small amount extra. Do it! Service was wonderful and you could hear yourself and your dining partner talk -- rare these days. Beautiful spot.
We were there for the half price 25th anniversary and it was lovely, EXCEPT, it is very, very
noisy. A large place with lots of people, so that is just the way it is. I would not recommend
this spot for those hard of hearing. Food was wonderful and very artfully presented.
Dessert is yummy!
Ruben was an amazing server. Very knowledgeable about the menu and told us all about the restaurant. It was the best crab cake I’ve ever had- no fillers, the way a crab cake should taste. I also really enjoyed the Trout. Thanks for a great first experience, Ruben and chef!
This is a traditional restaurant with excellent service and a slightly more formal atmosphere than most places we go in the city. We ordered from the SF Restaurant week fixed menus along with wine pairings and were very pleased with our meals. Although we went for my husband's birthday, I would think this would be a great place to bring a client, particularly from out of town.
Had a wonderful family dinner at One Market during Restaurant Week. Service and food were excellent - and the location can’t be beat - at the foot of Market Street near the Embarcadeto. We lingered for three hours in one of the very comfortable booths, and were never rushed by the waiter even though the restaurant became very crowded. Looking forward to a return visit!
My wife and I came for SF Restaurant week, and we were very impressed with the tasting menu they put together. For our first course we both chose the white bean soup, which was unlike any white bean soup I've had before, and very tasty. For the entrees, I had a porkchop that was one of the best I've had in recent memory, and my wife had gnocchi that was also excellent. By the time dessert rolled around I was almost too full for it, but I'm glad I had a at least some of it, as the panna cotta was very good. Overall it was an amazing deal at only $40.
I've been here many times, and it has never disappointed. The Restaurant Week menu was a particularly great value, but even the normal menu is very reasonable for the level of quality.
Birthday lunch I treated myself to during SF dining week. Overall good experience except waiter never brought bread out to me even though everyone else around me got it. Got the bill wrong at the end and had to have him correct it. For an upscale lunch was expecting a bit better service.
We came here for my wife's birthday dinner. We took the advantage of the 2008 SF Restaurant Week Promotion. It turned out One Market was a perfect choice. The food was creative and the portions were ample. The servers were attentive but not intrusive. My wife especially loved the white chocolate dessert. All and all, we had a wonderful dinner.
