Market Restaurant and Bar
product-driven cuisine inspires him to change the menu daily and the food is complemented with casual, yet upscale service by a well trained staff.
We search out the best produce, seafood and meat from local markets. Chef Schroeder's passion for perfection and the spontaneous nature of what is available to us are showcased in our daily changing menu.
We pour ourselves into every aspect of Market to ensure a unique dining experience. We change our craft cocktail menu to accent local fruit. Our award winning wine list has a worldwide selection of boutique wineries whose obsession with quality mirrors our own.

Every plate was beautifully presented and the food was delicious. The service was great as well, from the moment you walked in throughout the entire meal.
Don't understand a restaurant that includes casual in it's ad has a valet parking lot.
Excellent food and an attentive staff. My only recommendation is to have runners available to serve all the diners at each table at once. At a fine dining location like this it seemed very odd for the server to bring two plates and then have to go back to the kitchen for the other two plates. All the diners at a table should be served at the same time.
Tenderloin was excellent. Grouper had an incredible froth.
The food was excellent. However the service was terrible.
We have eaten at The Market more than once. Entree, appetizers and desserts are always creative and exceptionally delicious. The mini cornbread muffins are perfectly baked, not too much cornmeal or flour. Service is superb.
A very accomplished restaurant, with clever flavorful dishes, and a very well curated wine list. Truly one of the few top tier restaurants in San Diego.
We loved our meal at the Market! The starters were so original, fresh, and well prepared. Our server was exceptional, arriving at just the right time, letting us sit and talk, clearing the dishes appropriately, etc.
We will be back soon!
Food and service were stellar. Potions are large, amazing creative variety of things on the menu. Super place, will head back soon for sure.
Another perfect birthday celebration. Market has been our go-to restaurant since they opened years ago. They have the most knowledgeable servers anywhere who can describe every dish or any of the wines. It’s always nice to have a quiet place to actually have a real conversation with your dining companion. Any of the entrees are great but my favorites are their soups and those wonderful amuse bouches. I usually order a fish dish because they really know how to cook it perfectly. But you can’t go wrong with any of the offerings.
Every time I go there I enjoy the food, everything that you ask for is delicious and well presented.
ambiance is good for special occasions and service is unbeatable and professional
Always a great treat to eat at The Market. Delicious food, great service and a satisfying experience. It is pricey, but worth it. Among our very favorite places to dine.
Amazing as always!!!
Always the best
Excellent food and wine. Great for a special occasion or dinner anytime (if it fits in your budget).
Family dinner. Great time. Great value.
We had the veal cheeks. Utterly superb! Great winelist. Wonderful service. The corn muffins are not to be missed.
Overall, the restaurant carries a great value for those who are seeking to celebrate special occasions. Service was outstanding and the atmosphere of the restaurant was good for dining. Most food, however, even the amuse-bouche had very strong taste: either salty or very sweet. I personally would have had a better experience if the food were given lighter seasoning.
The food and service is always VERY good however, the desserts miss the mark BIG TIME in comparison. We have been 2x in the past month and tried 3 different desserts. None of them are worth talking about which is sad because the rest of the food IS being talked about. I hope they will step up the desserts to match the quality of their appetizers and entrees. :) Otherwise, I would rank this as one of the best food restaurants in town.
As usual the food was creative and outstanding. I brought guests who are world travelers and foodies. They both were impressed with everything they ordered and the beautiful presentation. Every course was prepared to perfection.
One of the best restaurant experiences. Great service, knowledgeable and friendly server. Best of all - the food. The miso cod is fabulous.
Drinks, food and service were all outstanding. Waiter did a great job helping with entree and wine selections. Combo short rib and ribeye cap steak was outstanding! Market never disappoints.
The Market is by all means my favorite restaurant. Good food, good service, good ambiance.
The food was awesome, the ambiance was just okay! No view or anything just a dimly lit restaurant.
A wonderful find. Well deserved #1 ranking in Del Mar. Be sure to make a reservation. The menu is varied and has lots of interesting items.
Loved our server! He made great recommendations and really took care of us! Be back soon!
Best dining in SD! My go-too favorite always!
Keepi it up!
Taste treat with top of the line ingredients
It was amazing!! Service, ambiance, food, everything was great. Best meal I’ve had in a long time!!
We have never been disappointed at the Market in terms of food and service. Creative cuisine, quality ingredients and flavorful dishes. Service has been outstanding - attentive, yet not overbearing. Love the small menu, where everything tastes great. You can't go wrong. My only gripe is that the wine options are at the high end, which becomes expensive if your group is not into wines, but simply wants a reasonable table wine. I love great wines, but I was with people who are discriminating foodies, while not into wines. At the end, you question the overall value. Hence, four stars overall, not five stars. Will still recommend the restaurant.
All courses were fantastic! Highly recommended for foodies.
Market always delivers on the highest quality, and flavor, of food. We have never been disappointed with anything we have ordered. As my husband once said, "Throw a dart at the menu - everything is delicious!" Service is always attentive but not rushed. I wish I could say more about the bar and cocktails, but, we only drink wine. As far as vegetarian and paleo friendly, there is always a pasta and seafood options. Market is, without a doubt, the best restaurant in San Diego County.
Great restaurant, food was delicious and the staff pays specific attention to details and your overall dining experience.
Market is always a wonderful meal and experience. Service is great & attentive, food is delicious. It was restaurant week during this visit which is not my favorite time to visit restaurants because it tends to be a limited menu but Market did a lovely job with their menu and we had a great visit. Can't wait to go back.
This is a place that you want to get dressed up for. Unlike many restaurants where people go to be seen, the quality of the food is superb and the service gracious. We were there on a Sunday for dinner and it was fairly quiet but it can get boisterous at the bar. The crowd are foodies, socialites, and people celebrating special occasions. Definitely a great anniversary meal restaurant.
5th year in a row I have been there for restaurant week and as always the service was spot on and the food was excellent. There are some restaurants that take restaurant week off (aka they don't put their best foot forward for a prix fixe menu) but Market has never taken it off. Highly recommend!!
We always enjoy Market. They had an especially fine Restaurant Week Menu
We were there for the restaurant week menu. The food was great, the service was friendly and attentive. I wasn’t crazy about my dessert but that’s never usually the highlight for me anyways. I would definitely return to try more items from the whole menu!
This restaurant is the best in San Diego. There is never a bad dish. Presentations perfect. Service attentive. A real gem. We were disappointed that restaurant week menus were in use, but ended up with wonderful selections and top quality and normal size portions. Probably best Restaurant week Menu in San Diego.
Went for restaurant week and had the tasting menu. Everything was delicious. Great flavor combinations and textures. Excellent service all around.
