    Was recommended many times, finally got to go and we were unimpressed. Maybe it was an off night, it was fairly slow but our appetizer came out cold the fries were old. Entrees were good, but overall the quality of the meal didn’t justify the price tag. App was comped by the waiter which was kind.

    The ambience was fine, the service was prompt, but to me the food wasn't up to par for the price. My trout was just OK, tasted a little off, and the Brussel sprouts were burnt to a crisp. There didn't seem to be much "marketplace" at Market Place, I was expecting more fresh market veggies and innovative cuisine.

    The pappardelle were overcooked, the meat and sauce was very good but the greens were an unexpected sourness and did not go well with the rest of the dish. The parmesan did not add to the flavor and should have been left off. The meal was served without bread and had to be ordered as a side which was unnecessarily toasted while the meal cooled. Apple crisp dessert was ok but took too long to get , soup spoon was not correct to use with dessert. Coffee was burned beans and too strong as if the full brew cycle was rushed. It is not like it used to be.

    Great food, great drinks & great staff. We were a large group in Asheville for business. Our waitress was extremely nice and very fun. They accommodated our special requests. I had their pumpkin martini, and it did not disappoint! I highly recommend The Market Place! We will be back.

    Market place has been our go to place when we have out of town guests. Very disappointed this time in the food especially the pork shoulder and trout dish. Service was excellent though. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. I am hoping this was just a fluke regarding the food.

    The food is delicious. The service is just okay. It was surprising that they brought our unasked-for check as soon as we were served dessert and the sparkling wine we'd ordered. We hadn't even been there an hour, so it's not like we'd overstayed. It was my husband's 50th birthday, which I'd noted on the reservation and whispered to the hostess who acknowledged that she already knew that. Of course, I wasn't expecting confetti and a chorus of Happy Birthday from the staff, but it was never so much as mentioned to him. That was disappointing. Whatever. The food is good, though.

    Sat barside, the atmosphere was cozy casual. Ordered a simple appetizer that took over 20 minutes to receive, followed by a charcuterie board - which took an additional 25 minutes. Unhappy with the wait, the food was tasty though.

    As soon as we were seated, the server informed us that the kitchen was slammed with a 24 person order and that things were behind and would be slow. What a great way to start a quiet romantic evening with a party of 2.! We could tell the server was being pulled by a large table next to us and was a bit frantic so we kept it simple….ordered bread, fries, and salads. Tried to order the crispy shrimp, but he said to stay away from it. Said it wasn’t that good and you only get 3 pieces…what?? We did order one cocktail each, but after seeing them sit on the bar for 10 minutes, we didn’t order more. I was tempted to get up and bring them to our table myself, but my wife said that would be rude. Anyway, the limited food items we had were good, but the vibe and service were not. We won’t be back. Too many other good options in the area

    Have eaten here regularly for several years. The food is always great and service usually is too. However, last evening, our waiter was inattentive. He never checked on our food after it was served, and he was very slow to bring the check.

    The best trout we have had served with delicious spoon bread and roasted Brussels sprouts. An order of seeded owl bread was a perfect addition to a fine meal. We topped the meal off with Apple strudel with a scoop of homemade buttermilk ice cream. Perfect meal with excellent service.

    Selected The Market Place Restaurant to facilitate the hand off of my pets to my daughter due to upcoming business travel, as Asheville is the halfway point between our current residences. TMP's drink menu and craft beer menu was exciting, as was their brunch menu. The service was wonderful, but I found the food to be average.

We love it for special occasions but it's also great for the bar and casual dining outside or inside. Hats off to Chef William Dissen and his care, creativity and vision.
