The Market Place Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The Market Place Restaurant was outstanding. The food was creative, delicious, and artistically presented. The service was just right. I was impressed at how our table could have a nice conversation without talking loudly. This place gets high marks all around.
We arrived at 8:00 on Saturday night after watching the SEC Championship game for our 8:30 reservation... we were seated at an upstairs round table for 8 people at 8:15 ... we’ll done on the quick seating!
They were no negatives. Service, food and drink were all above standard and the value was good.
Would recommend highly!
We tried too many dishes to list in a review. Leonardo provided exceptional service and took cues from the table on the pace and plating. I always add pepper to enhance flavor and I can say I never even considered using pepper...not even sure if salt and pepper are offered at the table. My only negative comment was around the portion size for the tuna tar tar. It was close to half or a third of the size I would have expected for the price. Everyone got pleasantly stuffed, so please understand this was one out of 15 dishes. I look forward to our return to Asheville and The Market Place will definitely be one of our dinners. No question.
Jordan was an excellent waiter. He helped lead us to some astonishingly good choices from the menu. Don’t miss the lamb, it was truly exceptional. We recommended this establishment to everyone that asked where to eat a nice dinner.
Excellent! We were visiting Asheville from New Jersey and I chose this restaurant among many to sample the local farm-to-table fare. We were greeted warmly, our server was professional, lovely and informed. Our meals were INCREDIBLE and the price was reasonable for what we ordered. Overall, great experience and we would go there again if we happen to be in the area.
No bread served with meal. Had to buy for $4. Even then was ridiculously small amount, not enough for table.
Wanted to bring in birthday cake and told on the phone " we discourage that, but if you decide to bring it will cost an extra $4 per person to serve.
This was our third visit in as many years and our first disappointment. We were seated late despite a reservation made a few days in advance. For our party of 4, two had fish dishes which were both overcooked. Steaks were just adequate. Except for the fabulous bartender and his amazing old fashions we will probably not return for dinner.
We live locally and try to avoid hotel restaurants as they are pricey and not as good as Asheville's independent locales. This restaurant has always been good, and we can highly recommend it for Sunday brunch. The bloodies were as spicy as we requested, and the steak and eggs were perfectly prepared to order. Don't leave out the house made donut holes!
Delicious food, great drink selection, our server was very knowledgeable and attentive. The staff was very helpful. We had a few of the small plates and they were all amazing. I would definitely recommend and return to this restaurant.
Very accommodating to my severe dairy allergy. There were three of us dining and all had an amazing meal (trout, salmon, and pork entrees). The garden salad was not your ordinary salad! Delicious and beautiful presentation.
My wife & I had dinner there this past weekend. Excellent service, delicious food and great vibe. Very much enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommend as a go-to place in Asheville for a nice dinner.
I have also been here in the past for a larger business dinner and was equally impressed.
The service was prompt and the server's recommendations for the entrees were spot on. The main course was completely our own choice and was the least favorable part of our experience, but that had more to do with our own judgement and tastes. The prices were a little steep but not atypical for downtown Asheville. When the quiet and tasteful ambiance and pleasant and prompt service are taken into account, it is money well spent.
Don't waste you time with a reservation if you are bringing a dog. Come to find out the tables outside are first come first serve. Would have been nice if someone would have let us know so we didn't waste our time. It was noted in the special request section.....not worth a hour wait!
