Other than a crying baby eroding the ambiance of the setting (highly inconsiderate of other dining guests; the evening was very pleasant. Thanks to Bobbie and Georgia for their attentive service.
I expected more out of the service for a place like this, but the service was just adequate. The food was okay, the mushroom soup was really good and the ling cod was decent. However, the lamb bolognese was underwhelming.
The ambience was nice and we had a nice view of the busy streets and shops.
We had a decent experience, but I don't think I would go back here or recommend this place to a friend.
We had a great time. The chicken and the lamb were phenomenal with perfect portion sizes. The service was very good. We will definitely visit again.
The food was very good but the service was slow and intermittant
service was 👌🏻 but everything was amazing.
I have always wanted to go to Market and took the opportunity to go with a friend. The experience was beyond my expectation. The service was impeccable and the server was very knowledgeable and patient. While I was waiting for my friend, the bartender was very kind to offer snacks with water even without me asking for it. He was coming from time to time to make conversation and check on me. The steelhead I ordered was cooked to perfection and it was the first time this happened, so I was very pleased about that. The oysters and dessert we shared were delicious. What a great experience! Thank you.
Really great food & service but the servings are very small...just a heads up. I didn't mind this but the other's in my party thought the servings were very small for the price.
My friend, sister and I dined here for a Sunday brunch. Staff especially friendly, the ambiance modern and beautiful and the food was outstanding. I had the wild mushroom risotto and poached egg on top, my sister had eggs Benedict and my friend had the short rib hash. Every dish was delicious and cooked to perfection. We are visiting but will definitely return to this fine dining destination.
Beautiful setting with lovely service and even better food!
Great service and the food was well prepared and enjoyable
Fantastic service and exceptional food. The foie gras melted in my mouth. Rack of Lamb was perfectly cook and presented. All in all a wonderful evening.
Great as always! The servers are very accommodating which is great help. My date and I aren't big fans of foie gras but we wanted the 5 course set. Our server went to the kitchen to see if it was possible to switch out the single course and found great substitutions!
Excellent, very imaginative food properly served by a well-trained serving staff. Up there with Hawksworth, but slightly less expensive based on several visits to each. Very good value for a high end restaurant.
Great Nicoise Salad. No Salt and Pepper on the table. A little pushy with the bill, as we were still talking and eating.
Best part about the place is services (it was a quiet night and late dinner). I only ordered a pasta dish which was a bit too salty for my taste. They can also accommodate larger group and the bar looks very nice.
We enjoyed celebrating our 1st year anniversary here. So rare to find a restaurant serving 'haute cuisine' with a separate menu outlining vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. Impeccable quality and service.
Awesome - best restaurant in Vancouver
We've decided to try their tasting menu. I asked if non-alcohol beverage pairing is possible, and the host confirmed when she called for reservation confirmation. The pairing was nice, but there was tiny bit of alcohol added for the flavor, which made me little buzzed. Overall the food was good. I loved the first bite of sable fish, but it became bit salty when the warmth of the food was gone.
Just the Sevice, Not as good as the food
Rarely does a restaurant hit a home run with the food, the ambiance, the service AND the value. This one hit the grand slam: superb and creative food, fantastic service (including attention re gluten-sensitive options), elegant and quiet setting, and excellent value. The only downside was that we did not have another night in Vancouver to come back! (But I will do so the next time I am in town.) What a gem of a place.
We went to Market for our 25th wedding anniversary and, although we said it was for an anniversary, we were given a table in the center aisle at the entrance of the restaurant that was the main thoroughfare into the restaurant. Thankfully, they were kind enough to move us to a booth when the one next to us came available. The first course of the tasting menu was incredibly slow (about an hour!), but after moving to a booth for the 2nd course onward, the rest of the dinner was fantastic. Very pleasant service, great timing between the rest of the courses, and the food was absolutely exquisite! Each course was a delight to the senses, well-balanced and complex. The dishes were unique, fresh, local and beautifully presented. The portions were perfect and we didn't go away hungry or over-stuffed. This was our 3rd time to this restaurant and I can't wait to go back for another memorable meal.
The Matket was just what we needed. Later Sunday evening dinner with friends in a quiet comfortable setting. We were able to converse easily making meeting old friends more pleasurable. Service was top notch and every aspect of our meal was detailed by all staff. Food was superb and timing was great. Menu was varying and not to large to make decisions easy. We enjoyed appies, mains, deserts and drinks. Great setting as well. Recommended!
Went for the Murakami inspired dinner and it was quite good! The foie gras was okay, wasn't a total fan of it. But overall the experience and the food was great! But of course, it was a little on the expensive side
Service was exceptional, we showed up on time for a reservation and there was a five minute or so delay well they got the table ready and we were all given complimentary champagne for waiting. Food was good but dishes were small and not worth the price.
Beautiful presentation. Delicious dishes, not too heavy and great staff
Hands down one of the best food in Vancouver. They take your traditional dish and elevate it to flavours that you never think existed. The venue is beautiful and service is great, the restaurant is also very well managed. Heck put on a nice outfit and go treat yourself - this place is worth it!!
The service was outstanding without being too overbearing.
The food was spectacular!!
One of our most favourite new restaurants!!
10 our of 10
Great experience . Connie was great!
Beautiful and well lit restaurant that was a perfect fit for our mixed omnivore and vegan marriage. We felt the prices were easily justified by the extremely high quality and deliciousness of the food. This will now be our date night venue.
It’s our first time there, and brought my parents since they visiting Vancouver. We ordered two Ling Cod and two Steelhead. They taste very good. My dad would like to come back next time he visits here.
Food was horrible. Don’t waste your time and money there.
Had pre-valentine's day dinner with my wife here but quite disappointed. We aren't alcoholic people so asked the server to recommend two non-spirit drinks while both of them don't taste good, we had only one sip of each of the drinks. (Fine, different people have different taste right? - ok).
The appetizers are pretty good, 4 star level - we should have simply ordered appetizers.
Entrees were --mediocre - Tenderloin's cook is up to level but tasted not very fresh. Short ribs are ok, slight sour ~~
Our main (male) server was the most disappointing point - apart from taking our order and getting paid, he didn't talk to us. He did not check with us how the food was or checking if we were ready for the next course or not. (He did that to other guests next to us ~_~) There weren't that many people and it's definitely not a 5-star level restaurant's service.
On the other hand, there was a female bread server who somehow asked us how the food was, asked us if we needed extra bread, etc. We felt like she is more a server than our server.
We gave 14% tip at the end hoping the tip will go to other servers especially that lady server. If it was just our main server served us for the night, probably we would have given less than 10% tip.
Manager of Market - If you see this, please share it with your colleagues, thank you!
It isn't easy to find a restaurant of such high quality that can easily cater to both omnivores and vegans/vegetarians, but Market has it all. The quality of the food, presentation, and friendliness of the staff are unmatched at any other restaurant in Vancouver.
This was our first visit to the Market, and we were very pleasantly surprised. The OpenTable entry described it as “casual family dining” but it is, in fact, a sophisticated and refined restaurant. The service was attentive and the staff exceptionally well-trained. Our entrees (rack of lamb and pan-seared lingcod) were cooked perfectly and served with imaginative accompaniments. Definitely save room for the peanut butter chocolate bar with salted caramel ice cream. By way of comparison, our go-to “special dinner” restaurant when visiting Vancouver has always been CinCin; the Market is its equal in quality and service, with a quieter atmosphere. We will definitely be dining there again.
With so many culinary delights nearby this place gets a pass from me. I had other reviews before going and it was a mix bag but I went in optimistic. Turns out the one star reviews were accurate.
For a nice restaurant they lack in all the details that really give guests that full experience of real fine dining. Lack lustre host, slow table service, servers don't engage, you have to wave them over for drink lists you already asked for, etc.
It was fun. It was nice that they would allow us to bring our own cake and serve it to us for only $4.
Food, mood & drinks were great, but what stood out to me was A. Consistent service - every single employee acknowledged us even if we were just walking by! B. Strong branding - it was my first time here, and the bartender knew this, and took 5m to explain all of the features and events that happen each year in the hotel and restaurant! Very exceptional experience and great for dates or friend nights
The food is great esp the steak.
