    We were excited to have a nice birthday dinner at The Market Place. We made reservations and were seated right away. However, it took a very long time for our server to arrive and he was mostly absent the rest of the evening. I saw the server accidentally deliver my salad to another person and then take it from their table to mine. My wife ordered the steak and it was great. The papperdelle that I ordered was terrible. The texture was horrendous and the flavor was more than lacking. I was extremely disappointed in the entree. We wanted dessert and coffee but the server took so long that we decided against it.

    We were a party of eight - a difficult number of people for any restaurant. We were seated at a lovely round table in the corner of the dining room and were able to hear each other well. Service was prompt and attentive. The farm to table idea works perfectly at this restaurant. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

    We’ve enjoyed nice dinners at The Market Place on several occasions an joined friends there last night for their first time. The appetizers (charcuterie board and the stuff pepper special) were very good as were two of the four entrees. The quail and papperdelle entrees tasted and cooked to perfection. However, two of us had the agnotolli (?) dish and found the pasta to be hard and chewy - definitely not the texture we were expecting. The sauce and filling was good.

    We have dined at the Market Place numerous times over the past seven years. We have always enjoyed it immensely, up to our last few visits. Unfortunately the prices have risen dramatically,, the portions appear to have shrunk, and last night the food was not prepared up to the restaurants usual standards. The red snapper, at $40 for a rather slim piece,, was exceeding dry and was clearly overcooked. The bok choy was overcooked as well. And the rice and curry sauce were almost missing in action - maybe a tablespoon of curry, which barely moistened part of the rice and one of the fish, and perhaps four tablespoons of rice. Highly unlikely that we will return. On the positive side, the server was excellent. With his 20+% tip, however, the bill for a small bill was over a $100. We understand costs have gone up for everyone, and good employees are hard to retain without increased wages, but in this market, the food quality and preparation should mirror the high prices. In this regard, the Market Place falls short

    We have been coming to The Marketplace for years and it definitely is not what it once was. Despite the restaurant being almost completely empty there was confusion amongst the servers as to who would be taking us. Squash fritters had no squash whatsoever and were overpriced hush puppies, two of which were visibly burnt. Entrees were so so but overpriced as well. Cocktails were okay but nothing to write home about. There are many other places in Asheville to dine that have local food incorporated but executed much better.

Our server Kathleen was friendly and very knowledgeable about the wines and menu items. She also shared her favorites, which we appreciate. The ambiance, food and service were excellent.

    The food was great and we enjoyed sitting outside on a pleasant evening. We loved our cocktails, the fermented vegetable appetizer and the tilefish entree. The peach & blackberry crumble dessert was delicious. The service was great - attentive without being hovering. Love the farm to table execution. Thanks!

    Not very welcoming though restaurant was not busy at the dinner hour. Shrimp was lovely presentation but overdone and lacking flavor though served atop a delicious arugula salad. Mussels were fine but broth rather bland. Ratatouille side dish quite good. Dined on lovely outside patio. When I went inside to find the restroom I wandered around looking, no one asked if they could help me though I was obviously confused.
