We were on a daytrip from South Carolina and went to Market Place for dinner. Everything was wonderful! The bartender was friendly and we enjoyed 2 beers, one was a special $3 draft, and both good. Our servers were friendly and prompt and helpful. One even wrote down the ingredients for the olive oil I was curious about. Our dinner was fabulous, we had 2 small plates: the mussels, and scallops and pasta large plate. Also shared an apple crisp for dessert.

Extraordinary..friends we were with live in the area and have eaten at many Asheville establishments but this was their first time and they were blown away by the food. And it was so very quiet..you could actually carry on a conversation without yelling. Music was good, service exceptional..will certainly go back here again.

I have enjoyed a few meals here and have enjoyed the meals. The wine list is also excellent. It is usually quieter upstairs.

Exactly what farm to table food is supposed to be. Perfectly executed dishes that are authentic and creative, yet unpretentious. Local farms and farmers utilized by the restaurant are listed throughout space, and the staff are extremely knowledgeable and can tell you about each one. The cocktails are inventive and well thought out, and the wine list is a perfect match for the cuisine. Lighter, acid driven wines that pair perfectly with food and very reasonably priced. You can't go wrong with the house made charcuterie and local cheeses, and the goat cheese and beet agnolotti may be the perfect pasta dish. There is no better place to eat in Asheville, and the value is out of this world.

Exceptional server! He knew the wine pairing very well. And he was very attentive. We were the last table of the night and they did not rush us out of the restaurant. Definitely plan to return when we are in Asheville.

Excellent food and service. I would recommend it to people who like innovative food and preparations, but not necessarily for the meat and potatoes only guy! It was an excellent meal and reasonably priced for an upscale Asheville restaurant.

Delicious food and great service. The cocktails were unique and so very tasty. (I recommend the Bentons Old Fashion.) You will not be disappointed.

Service was timely orchestrated, food was mediocre, wine was delicious and Wednesday 1/2 off glasses was most fitting. Quiet setting for conversing. May choose more ethnic type menue choices in the future.
