This is a wonderful restaurant in Asheville. The atmosphere is incredible, as was the service and food. I could not be more pleased with the entire experience overall. We will definitely be back.

Outstanding food. Interesting menu. I had the roasted cauliflower/quinoa salad (a great vegetarian dish) and my husband had the white bean soup and the eggs benton. Everything was awesome! The service was absolutely perfect.

We have eaten there several times and it has been great. However, their limited menu for Valentines Day was not very good. No bread or soup. The beet salad and venison Cavetti was awesome, but that’s about it. We had the filet mignon and it seem like they prepared it before hand and warmed it up prior to serving. Our steak was cold on the inside and too rare. Not what we asked for. They took it back, but it came back really charred to the point it tasted burnt. Not a good meal for $150. Sorry for the bad review. Maybe next time.

Can't say there was anything wrong with the food overall, but the prix fix menu itself seemed really odd for Valentine's Day and certainly non-inclusive for vegan/vegetarian diners, of which there are many who reside in Asheville; four entrees and not one without beef, fowl, seafood or lamb. In addition, the fowl was quail...quail has it's own flavor and many people dislike it, the rest of the general diners never have eaten it and probably wouldn't choose to try it when they would have to pay $65, the prix fix price. How nice, thoughtful, it would have been for the chef to have included something classy like layered veggies in puff pastry with an interesting savory wild mushroom sauce instead or in addition to the other four entrees. One of us had the beef tenderloin which was cooked perfectly and was tasty, but one quarter of it was grisly. We'll choose a different restaurant next time we want a special night out.

The Market Place is a fine spot if you're avoiding long lines and crowds. It's a tad generic but good food overall.

Market place is such a great place and has been for years. The food is creative and delicious. The service always great. Good cocktails. And one of asheville’s few restaurants where the noise level is low enough for conversation among diners. That is a big plus for me. Friends and good food. The perfect combo. And with the wall street garage so close. Parking is not the problem that it is in other parts of town. G don’t miss thiss lovely place or you will miss some of the best asheville has to offer.

The food and service were excellent. The small plates gave us the opportunity to try multiple tasty dishes. The charcuterie plate, scallops and grits and Cornish hens were all delicious! We enjoyed the homemade limoncello and Prosecco to start. Overall, the meal was a delightful experience!

Went from quiet to loud due to one table. I wonder if there’s a nice way to remind people there are other guests trying to converse.

Seafood stew (cioppino) that I had was superb. Everyone loved their food. The charred beets were exceptionally good, too. I really like the apple crisp which was a nice balance of tart and sweet with raspberry puree and ice cream. Will definitely return soon.

Was not at all what we had imagined based on reviews and information available online. We ordered 1 drink and respectfully left to go to another restaurant. The waiter was 100% understanding and assisted us in finding something more our taste.

The atmosphere was great but unfortunately, the food was technically flawed. I got the spinach omelette and the spinach was all in one side of the omelette with totally raw spinach (like from the fridge). They also didn't give me anything to eat with my biscuit! My husband ordered the steak (medium) and eggs, and unfortunately his steak was WELL DONE, his poached eggs a bit undercooked, and his sweet potato hash quite raw. The cocktails were excellent, and it's a bummer the food wasn't better.
