Market by Jean-Georges Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Market had always been one of my favouri ...
Market had always been one of my favourite restaurants, but recently, the quality of the food has not been exceptional like before. I had a bit of doubt when going in for brunch, but was pleasantly surprised with the food. Our table did not order any of the individual dishes, but rather the social plates. The steelhead sashimi on crispy rice was exceptionally innovative and delicious, and I would highly recommend their oysters (Kusshi), as they were very fresh. The beet salad, avocado toast, and desserts were very good as well. What made the meal exceptional, however, was the service. All of the servers were very friendly, and provided amazing service and suggestions. (One thing I noted especially, was that my water glass was never empty for more than a minute! This is always a plus in my books, as I do not like dinning with an empty glass) Furthermore, I can say that our server (unfortunately, I did not get her name), was one of the best I have ever had from all the restaurants I've dined at. She went above and beyond her role, and we had an amazing conversation about her hometown in Japan and the food. I sincerely enjoyed my dinning experience at Market, and am very thankful for the amazing service.
Always a Special Treat
This is my fourth time visiting Market and I have never been disappointed. Tonight we shared the scallop appetizer and they were amazing. Loved the accompaniment of pureed pea. We both had the Steelhead for our main. Delicious. We also had the mushrooms and the beets as sides. The only complaint was that the sides were large. Hard to finish, but we sure did our best. Overall, EXCELLENT.

Went for Mothers Day Brunch. The food was delicious. However, service was friendly but slightly uneven. Not what we would expect from such a high end restaurant. It could have been because it was Mothers Day so new, untrained staff were called in. Overall, the value of this meal was not as good as we expected.
Market by Jean George
Everything was delicious except for the bread. It was very hard and dry .. took some effort to chew the bread. The Sablefish was silky & perfectly done .. my husband loved his lamb .. the beets and mushrooms were also delicious.
We were so well cared for at this venuevenue from a food allergy to a birthday desertdesert. when my prepaid Visa was not working, no one appeared flustered or assuming. I had to simply change cards, but regrettably was unable to leave the tip I would have preferred. Should I ever be in Vancouver again, I would return and do better by the server(20-25% vs my 15%.)
Construction - no warning
There's some very, very loud construction going on in the retail unit directly below the restaurant. The drilling vibrates the dining room and creates a lot of noise. Management didn't do anything to make us feel like appreciated guests. Even if they offered a small discount for the inconvenience, or something to say "Thanks for joining us despite the noise" would have been nice. Won't be going back for a while.
Our server was excellent and very helpful. I love that there is a vegan and vegetarian menu with delicious choices.
Stale bread, tiny portions for extreme prices and over-priced ordinary wine. Need I go on? I rarely indulge in high-end dining, so my expectations of perfection were being stretched. Somehow Market By George has gone so high-end that it went over a cliff. Food was immemorable, although what was noteworthy were the extremely small portions. Even the desert was intelligible. It was a mishap of sickly-sweet items. Perhaps this is a date place. In this case, I just happened to be hosting a rather elite political guest and thought I would take the gamble. Won't happen again.

Service was non-existent and we were the first in the restaurant. Manager said one staff was on break! Not my problem sir! He did compensate us for the shortfalls but our dinner was ruined, despite the excellent food and restaurant atmosphere.
Typical Fine Dining
Yes, the food was great, but the portions were incredibly small. Don't go here hungry, or you'll be stopping at McDonald's on the way home. It is typical fine dining where you enjoy the ambiance, you are treated like royalty by the staff, but expect to overpay for a tasty snack, not a meal.

Had the brioche french toast with apples and it did not disappoint,it was light and fluffy as I expected.The service was exceptional !What amazed me the most is how the staff supported each other by making sure that all the guests were served promptly and with a smile.The atmosphere was warm and inviting which helped you to relax instantly.

We shared the steelhead sashimi appetizer and it was wonderful. If I could eat more, would have had my own. We also had the sablefish, both preparations ,and they, too were excellent. We were there early so not too many tables filled. I imagine it would be moderately noisy when full. Managed to share the warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. Small portion but perfectly adequate after the rich meal we had. We've been there before and will go again when in Vancouver.

Great spot for a business lunch! Service and ambiance was great and the food was good too.
Had a great experience with my daughters, sister and cousin for brunch. Was pleasantly surprised that there was a kids menu available as I had my girls check out the menu online to choose what they wanted to eat in advance. I assumed a restaurant like this would just have one menu, such a great surprise! The moment we got there the service was impeccable, the valet, the host who met us at the front of the restaurant and our awesome server was flawless from start to finish. And the food! We ordered a social plate and individual plate each thinking the portions would be small, boy were we wrong! Delicious food, great portions, so worth the drive from the Fraser Valley. Got to try the kids dishes as well and the spaghetti and mac and cheese were amazing! Kudos to everyone. Looking forward to coming back

We had the tasting menu and everything was excellent. Market is a favourite spot in Vancouver. Not only is the food and service excellent, the room is beautiful and the acoustics allow you to hear people speaking unlike so many noisy restaurants.

摆盘很精致，色味俱全。同伴点了一份simply cooked lobster，我点了一份Soy Blazed short beef ribs。肉和龙虾都十分软烂，与配菜一起吃真的很不错，不会腻，比单吃肉或龙虾好很多。我们还点了sachimi with fried rice，这个还好，就是日本三文鱼寿司的改编版；还有raw oyster真的很神奇，脆脆的感觉，赞赞赞👍。最后，我们还加了两个甜品（cheese cake 和Warm chocolate cake），都配有冰淇淋和配菜，但个人感觉偏甜，不适应。服务生的服务很到位，且很仔细细心得回答客人的问题，时不时过来询问是否喜欢这食物，或是否需要什么服务。氛围不错，较为安静。四周有说英语的客人交谈。看起来是交谈会友的好去处。另外，这家酒店在香格里拉酒店的三楼
Have eaten at this restaurant 4 times . The food is inconsistent and continues to not really hold the standard I expect from a Market Restaurant. The value is not there and the food is mediocre.
Outstanding Food and Service
Our family enjoyed a dinner here last weekend. We all tried something different and everyone loved their dinner. The quality of the food and the presentation were outstanding. We tried the halibut dish, short ribs, lamb and beef tenderloin. It is very handy to walk from any of the downtown hotels.Friendly efficient service.
Superb Dining Experience
Located in the beautiful and luxurious Shangri La Hotel, the Market by Jean-Georges Restaurant proved the equal to the Bosk in Toronto. Excellent menu with superb presentation served by a variety of friendly and competent staff made this experience a three hour delight.
For a supposedly high end restaurant with prices to match its reputation this has been an extremely disappointing experience. We ordered the sashimi and salad for starters, the salad was ok but certainly not outstanding but the sashimi was a disaster with the texture of a rubber consistency. The bread that came with the meal was ok if that's what you are expecting from paying $2 for a baguette at Safeway. We both ordered the "roast chicken" for the main course. It is definitely not the caliber of a Bouchon roast chicken which we had a week ago at Bouchon in Vegas. The dish had two pieces of tasteless chicken breast which were so dry we had to keep drinking water to wash it down. I have my doubt the chicken has been roasted but more like pre-cooked and warmed up in a microwave. The chocolate cake for dessert and the foie gras were the only two enjoyable items in our meals. The service was at the level of Red Robins, I had to wave down our server to get more water. Come to think of it actually I have had more attentive service sometimes at Red Robins. After spending $180 for dinner for two I felt like I have been robbed!
Our large group of 10 had a fabulous night on the last evening of dine-out Vancouver. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and we loved the private room for our group. We had an enjoyable, fun evening! Thanks!
very ordinary for the charges
the dine out menu is nothing special can get this somewhere else, would not recommend considering the charges
Best dine out experience
The food, ambience, and service were amazing. Definitely one of the best dine outs I've been to this year/overall. All the food was flavoured really well and the portions were quite good!
A bit disappointing
Went to Market for Dine Out this year, as it was a restaurant I've always wanted to try. I had an amazing Dine Out experience at Chambar last year, so I expected that these fine dining restaurants would have a good way to deal with the set menu and high volume. Unfortunately, the food was only so-so. The chicken I had was overcooked and very disappointing. I feel like I could have had better chicken at any chain restaurant like Earl's . At least the dessert was good? (But I spent the extra 5 dollars for the apple tarte). Overall...very disappointing experience.
Had a business dinner here with a colleague and some clients. We were seated promptly and service was very efficient and friendly. Food did not disappoint, from appetizers to dessert. Definitely a gem , esp for Dine Out Vancouver!
Overall positive but....
A bit over posh! Service good but not overly friendly or personal We had dine out Vancouver menu. 1st course choice of beet salad was very tasty but was small quantity on a large plate. They might have psychologically put it on a smaller plate.. as one felt short changed when could count the sprout leaves and it was less than 6. Main courses of pasta and fish were very tasty and better on quantity. Wanted to try the place but tables are very close to each other so you cannot help hearing other people's conversations. Yes you can fill your eatery but a few less tables would have helped make this more special

The food and service was excellent but I would not recommend it for a "vibrant scene". On a Friday night, the restaurant was empty shortly after 10PM besides us.

The restaurant is extremely accommadating with our dietary restrictions. I emailed the restaurant prior to making a reservation, Karla Foronda who answered my email is very helpful and patient to check and confirm with the chef with our requests. We had the pleasure of meeting Karla when we dined on Thursday Jan 21. The foods were wonderful and flavourful, despite that all dishes are vegetarian and cannot include onions, garlics, and leeks. We enjoyed the both the food and ambiance immensely.
Relaxing ambiance, salty entree.
The hosts and our server were delightful! Just wished my tagliatelle wasn't so salty. The crunchy bacon sprinkled on top was unnecessary, since the pasta already had prochito mixed in. Haven't checked out their regular menu, but their dine out menu was not worth $40 :( maybe next year!
Really enjoyed the food, service, and the overall experience was pleasing. We all ordered different things on the Dine-out menu for entree, no complaints from the party we were in. Although fish dish (both appetizer & entree) looked and tasted good, everything including the molten lava cake stood out to be excellent. Will be returning again for sure!

Our meal was delicious. We had very friendly attentive service. The pace of the meal perfect and never felt rushed despite it being Dine Out Vancouver. Dessert was absolutely fabulous.
Old world charm with classy modern essence in flavor and service.
Great food and staff
My wife and I needed to find a restaurant last minute downtown and Market still had some tables open. What a lucky find, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and very attentive to my food allergies. High quality food with great presentation. Hard to choose a meal because the menu had a wide variety.
As good as ever
Appetizers were interesting (something different) and very flavourful. We had sablefish for the main course and it was exquisitely cooked, a slight grill on the outside yet moist inside. Good wines and great bar. Still as good as when we first went 5 years ago
Wanted a special place for lunch on New Year's Eve day. I'd had dinner at Market a few months earlier so knew the restaurant would suit my needs. We were extremely satisfied: Seared Scallops - the Soy-Yuzu Broth was a nice complement, the slow-cooked steelhead was done to perfection, the Soy-glazed beef Short Ribs was melt-in-your mouth tender. Our wine was a favourite, Tommasi Le Rosse Pinot Grigio 2012. Rather than dessert, we had not finished our wine, so we chose the cheese plate. Just the right amount of cheese with dried cranberries ), dates, glazed hazelnuts (not sweet, probably soy glazed). Did not try the chutney but my friend approved. Nice end to the meal. Server was pleasant and knowledgeable. She was a professional, her timing was perfect. Market was everything I expected. Love the natural light during lunch. Ambiance was perfect for good conversation. I will go back again.
