BETTER THAN EXPECTED.
RESERVATION FOR 2 ON PEAK OCT SAT NIGHT. WE WERE SEATED ON TIME AT A NICE TABLE
Excellent and friendly service. While waiting at the bar for our table to be readied, received a warm welcome from Jason. Dining upstairs was blessedly quiet -- although there were large celebratory groups in the restaurant, the noise level was very low. And there was a dj spinning music very quietly who added to our enjoyment. The food and drink were excellent. Small plates and main courses offered variety. The brownie dessert was exceptional. Market Place uses both local and seasonal ingredients.
We made a reservation ahead of time and we were sat late, and then our food came very late, and when it was served the steak was over cooked so at that point we felt the need to express our concerns so we asked for management. The guy who came to talk to us was a jerk, didn’t respect our concerns, was defensive, and minimized our experience. He was argumentative with us about our concerns and ruined the evening for us. His name is Justin.
A reliably creative restaurant that uses lots of locally raised foods. Innovative sauces and side dishes. Dessert options could have been better.
We had the pumpkin soup and the seared scallops which were delicious. Husband had the quail and loved it. The braised lamb and parpaselle was excellent. Prices were reasonable and the ambiance was lovely.
Another wonderful dining experience at the Market place. Great food and wonderful service (tag teamed by Randal and Donny.) Found a new wine that complemented the meal, recommended by Randal. We had a wonderful evening.
My wife's pasta dish came cold. My steak was improperly cooked and over-seasoned. Service was inattentive and uncaring. With many good choices nearby there is no sensible reason to eat here.
This restaurant is my favorite in Asheville as they have been the very best at dealing with my low acid diet. The chef is a master at pan grilled fish. It is always delicious.
The food was outstanding. We had their pumpkin soup and bison special. It was incredible! We joked how we could go back again the next evening for the exact same meal.
Food excellent and reasonably priced for the level of culinary dining. Wine/drinks a little pricey. One of Asheville's best.
Very underwhelming for the price. The scallops were very good though.
Fantastic food and music! [it was a Saturday night]
Perfect place for a date. Difficulty finding parking close by. But the food was wonderful!
We were out for an evening dinner before attending the Asheville Symphony. We asked for a QUIET table and were seated upstairs by the fabulous wine cellar. Our waiter was very attentive and professional. The food was excellent. Our friends ordered the night's Special, Bison. They both said it was large enough for two and was scrumptiously tender. We both ordered the small plate Scallops, since we love seafood. They were cooked to perfection. We were able to hear our conversations, enjoy really good food that was artfully presented and served with a flare. We certainly will return.
Delicious dinner. Nicely presented. Very good value.
Perfect birthday brunch. Lovely art all around, fast and friendly service too.
A fantastic experience! The Market Place never disappoints. The level of professionalism runs throughout; the staff at every level is exceptional! And the food is consistently interesting, delicious, and locally/regionally sourced.
Potatoes are too salty. The chef is a Gamecock, that makes me happy!🐔
We arrived early for our reservation and was sat immediately which was great. The waitress wasn’t very personable. She didn’t seem to care to be there, not very friendly. It took us almost 30 minutes to get our food. We both got the Market breakfast. The scrambled eggs were undercooked and still runny. The bacon was good but had an odd Smokey flavor to it. The jalapeño biscuit and potatoes were great.
Lovely dinner on the patio. The mussels and truffle fries were great!
We’re visiting Asheville and have visited The Market Place before. This place never disappoints. We had the mushroom gratin as a starter along with the Grey’s Hound and Green Eyes for cocktails. All were delicious. For entrees, the spouse had the snapper and I had the pumpkin soup/pear and bleu cheese salad. The pumpkin soup was thick and creamy—paired with the salad—it was like autumn in a meal. Nothing hit our fancy for dessert but it was just as well. Service was excellent and the ambiance is lovely- you can have a conversation. Definitely a go-to place
Great find in Asheville! Amazing prices for the quality and portions. We had the pickles, gazpacho, rabbit and scallops. They were all small plates and were perfect sizes for the two of us to share. The cocktails were great too!
Great restaurant for a nice evening dinner.
Great food, average service
Best of our week in asheville. Order the mushroom gratin and pork shoulder. Great evening.
Overall very good experience. Ordered a glass of Pinot noir that was nectar. Very good service. All entrees were very good except the trout, which was not, lacking flavor.
Brought out of state relatives and was not disappointed. They are from Portland OR and are very much tuned into the food scene. Asheville did not let us down. The Market Place knows its way around the farm to table menu and has a lovely wine list. Try the Sancerre with any fish dish.
Wonderful food and our waiter was superb. We went on a Tuesday night so it wasn’t crowded.
Great waiters, good suggestions, hen of the woods mushrooms appetizer and and heavenly brownie dessert
My boyfriend and I went here as our fancy dinner night when we were in Asheville. The waiters aren't asking you every 10 minutes of you're ready to order or done or need anything. It's a good place if you want to spend time to chat and just be. They ARE attentive when they see your glass is low, are ready to order and done . I highly recommend if you like not saying the food is good when you just got it and have a mouth full. The food is also delicious! I recomend the stuffed quail.
Excellent food and extremely knowledgeable waiter.
Wonderful experience with delicious food and service!!
Loved everything about this place! Exceptional food, wine, service and live music! Parking in that area of Asheville is a hassle on a Friday night, so allow a little extra time.
Everything was fantastic perfect, except for the volume of the music and acoustics. We had difficulty hearing each other at our table, we were very close to the speakers....so perhaps it was just a particularly noisy location
Our food was very good and our server was a big help describing it!!
Brought our kids in for a Sunday brunch. Everything was delicious.
Great food! Server knew the menu and could describe every dish and how it was prepared.
Very tasty food choices. Service was professional but a bit too much on the cool side. Reservation noted birthday celebration but no acknowledgement or at least kind word to that regards.
