    Food was below average . The collards were soaked in vinegar and were not edible… I like acid, but please taste your food prior to sending out to your guests… By the way, collards came out as a 2nd course and not as a side to our entree’. The quail dish had more red onion than quail. The papparadelle, the sauce was delicious but the pasta was old. Market Place came highly recommended. Sad what’s happened to this restaurant. Servers & bartenders were distracted because they were in the middle of a drama fueled gossip festival.

    This is a very nice restaurant with creative cuisine and interesting flavors. In the end it was a bit mixed- some food was very good to our palates and some just ok. They were responsive on the phone and very welcoming on arrival. Service was very friendly and well informed, but they were understaffed so we had to wait for things. No fault of the server, and yes everyone is understaffed these days, but if I am tipping $100 for service, I expect a bit more (maybe I am just living in the pre-covid world).

    So disappointing. Place looks great and staff is a joy - I just wished their food held up. Each dish had some nice elements but if you are raving more about the three slices of pickle on the side rather than the main item on the plate, then time to reconsider how things are prepared. Cocktails were quite good - I recommend stopping by for a drink, enjoy the atmosphere and delight in some wonderful conversations with the bartender... but eat elsewhere!

    I set this up for my daughter’s birthday dinner. She went with her brother and sister-in-law and her friend. I stayed home to babysit. They came back and raved about the cocktails, appetizers, and entrees. They enjoyed their service and had a fantastic time. My husband and I like to go here as well when we are not babysitting. We always enjoy our dinning experience here.

    One of our favorite restaurants going back many years. We hadn't been since Covid, but took friends last night and it did not disappoint. We each had different entrees and each of us was thrilled. I always get just appetizers, had shrimp with an interesting tasty light coating, then the chicken barbecue appetizer which was so delicious. The dessert was a berry crisp with an amazing bourbon ice cream. I'm looking forward to the next visit.

    Pleasant enough meal. The local sourcing is appreciated and thoughtfulness of the menu, but execution was poor, overcooked etc. Service was dutiful if not hurried and inattentive. It is not now what the Marketplace once was.

    After years of absence, my wife and I decided to celebrate our anniversary at Market Place. We were not disappointed that we did so. We enjoyed a very tasty meal served with fine wine that was decanted at our request, and finished with an outstanding dessert. We were not the easiest of customers: We wanted to change our seating, we requested extra steps be taken with our wine selection, and so on. But Market Place personnel were very helpful, friendly, and willing. They bent over backwards for us and we will return.

    We have been going to The Market Place since 1991. Yesterday was a disappointment. Beautiful night but no outside seating due to too few servers. Not the Resturant’s fault as everyone is struggling for staff. My fresh pulled mozzarella and heirloom tomato salad contained a few small cubes of mozzarella, a lot of greens and 2 slices of not ripe Cherokee Purple tomatoes. The pork shoulder entree was over cooked and tough. I did not finish it. My wife’s vegetable fritter appetizer was excellent and her snapper entree was okay but the curry rice was too salty. She could not eat the rice. Our server was excellent and the ambiance is always pleasant. I am hoping this was simply an off Sunday night. I am sure we will give it another try but for a $225 dollar meal plus tip, they need to step up a bit.

    We sat outdoors and the weather was great but the noise level was higher than expected and the service was mediocre at best. No check back after delivering the meals and felt a bit in a rush to finish. An average meal in a city of above average expectations.

    I am mindful about extending grace to the service industry during being short staffed and things of that nature. The food just wasn’t worth writing home about. Staff was incredibly nice and professional. However, we didn’t go for the staff but for good food. And overall good food was not what we were served. The bread for the mussels were burnt not grilled. The fries while some were yummy others were saturated in grease making for an unpleasant bite. The braised lamb with pasta was most visually unappealing and not tasty. It was a very disconcerted place. The quail was tasty but the eggplant was burnt. The consistency with the food just wasn’t there. I see the vision and the atmosphere that the restaurant strives to provide but the lack of consistency with the food was just not good.

    It’s hard to imagine the minuscule size of the piece of trout that I was given last night for dinner. Honestly, if it was six times larger it would have been a normal portion like most restaurants would serve. For $32 one would think something better could have been proffered. It was almost like that was the end of what they had in the kitchen.

    My husband and I ate here for dinner and had Brita as our waitress. She was just awesome and super knowledgeable on the food and recommending things we should try. We ordered the cheese board for an appetizer and we’re pleasantly surprised when it came out. EVERYTHING on that board was delicious and was a pleasure getting to enjoy it. Brita was quick to help us if we had any questions and also gave us lots of recommendations for things to do around Asheville.

    Service and appetizers were fantastic! Entrees were terrible. Rice in risotto was crunchy, not creamy, everything lacked salt and flavor in general. The A/C vent dripped condensation on me the entire evening. As fellow industry employees we were all just disappointed.

    Food portions are small. My husband had a pesto ravioli which was good but contained maybe 5 ravioli and a leftover bowl of pesto sauce. I had the mushroom risotto which was basic at best. Maybe two mushrooms and a couple sheet tomatoes. Otherwise boxed risotto is just as good but less expensive.

    Delicious dinner to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The tuna was cooked to perfection and very tasty. The lamb tagliatelle was flavorful as was the trout. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Wine selection was very good as well. Only negative is that the size of the portions was small especially in light of the price (eg., tuna was $40). Otherwise, was a lovely but expensive meal.

    The quail was to die for delicious. Seed bread app was also quite good but I don't understand why no restaurants in Asheville bring bread to the table to start, which is a given in most other cities. Others at the table ordered the ravioli, which was more soup-like than expected but quite tasty. Kudos to our server, Leonardo.

    My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary yesterday and had dinner at The Market Place; we had an incredible appetizer which was a first-time special: lightly battered and fried squash blossoms filled with goat and ricotta cheese with herbs; our server Jeff was great and recommended an excellent white Burgundy that paired well with the appetizer and also our entrees; my wife had the mushroom and pesto ravioli and I had the trout with roasted root vegetables and wilted greens. Everything was excellent; we even shared the special dessert of the night - poached peach with bourbon butter sauce with orange ricotta and graham cracker crumble. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
