Our waiter was great! She had a smile on her face every time she came to the table, even if she was just refilling our water. The chef was amazing!
The seating was a bit close together for a date. And it seemed the later the night, the other guests started to get drunk, swear and shout... but it was a Saturday night, so it happens!

We ordered Sablefish that comes with a bowl of rice. We think the fish was great, but the rice was half uncooked. It was escalated to the chef, but he did not take any responsible for it. I am pretty disappointed. The service of the waiter was great.

Food was excellent. We had the scallops to start and the tenderloin and Parmesan crusted chicken. Everything was cooked to perfection and very nicely presented. We finished off the night with a Mascarpone trifle - which I'm told was delicious (just the right amount of richness and touch of sweetness to end off a great meal).
The service (from the hosts/hostesses checking us in and then our waiter) was outstanding. It was a pretty busy night there - with a number of large parties - but we didn't ever feel neglected or forgotten.
We've been to Market a number of times now and each time have had great experiences overall.
The Shangri-la itself, is extremely classy and we thoroughly enjoy our visits there.

Food was fair. Service was terrible. Server was not friendly and did not come by, only to take order and to drop off bill. Not once did she check on us. Would probably not go back. Will stick to our usually places for celebratory dinners next time.

In town for a conference and came here with a friend to catch up. The food was fantastic and service was great. The seared slavefish was perfectly cooked With a spicy sauce that complimented the fish well. I would definitely come back when I am next in Vancouver.

Having eaten at Spice Market in New York (a Jean Georges restaurant), and thoroughly enjoying it - we thought we'd try his restaurant in Vancouver. It was just excellent. From the ambiance to the service and the food, ...perfect! Would highly recommend and would return.

Food was excellent, the service was a little slow at times but they were busy and the friendliness and enthusiasm of the staff made up for that. Food was very high quality and nicely presented. The only thing that I felt detracted from the experience was that they did not serve any amuse bouche during the meal which seems unusual in this type of restaurant. Friendly, unstuffy atmosphere and staff were happy to chat about the food. It is not what I'd call a romantic setting, it is rather a luxe, informal setting. They also have two private dining areas which would be great for a business or formal meal. Would definitely recommend.

First time but definately not the last! Enjoyed the seared scallops and Heirloom Tomato starters...We had Crusted Halibut and the Steelhead for mains. Both were excellent but the Halibut was beyond wonderful..just like eating silk. A beautiful bottle of Sancerre during dinner and Martinis made just right to start the evening off. Service was impeccable.

Have been a fan of Jean-Georges for a long time. First time at this location and it did not disappoint. Impeccable food , service and ambiance! The halibut and sable fish were super fresh and preparation was melt in your mouth . Excellent dining experience to cap off a great trip to Vancouver !!

Our go to for girls' get together
My friends and I get together a couple of times a year and hands down., "Market" is our favourite place! They have good food, using top notch ingredients and the service is always great. We have a leisurely lunch,enjoy each others' company and catch up with our lives. We have been doing this for over 40 years and have been going to 'Market" the last few years.

A kind tenant in the residences told us to eat the scallops ~ they were great! The sweet pea soup, curry bread, rhubarb & lichee trifle were amazing. We enjoyed the Pinot Gris and the Pinot Noir from the Okanagan Valley BC.
We lamented not sitting outside as the breeze subsided after the sun went down. The indoor tables were quiet and we could easily talk.

A lovely dining room with a refined ambience and very good service from my waitress. The food looked beautiful; my salmon luncheon special was just a bit dry however. It can happen occasionally at any good restaurant, but I just happened to have had salmon earlier this week, at both Estiatorio de Milos and Il Mulino, two Miami Beach outposts of NYC star restaurants, and both FL places prepared their salmon with finesse, with a moist and absolutely delicious result.

This is a favourite spot in Vancouver even if it feels more like a place in a big Asian city. The decor is so tasteful, not too over the top, luxurious and classy. And that extends to the food. Every dish is well prepared and presented beautifully. The service is attentive and friendly if a bit formal. The room tends to be quiet, they really thought about sound and creating a peaceful space to enjoy food.
On a recent visit I did have to ask the parents of a screaming kid to take him out of the restaurant while he was having a melt down. Other than that, I've rarely had an issue with noise in Market. And parents: I appreciate that you want a nice meal but this isn't a "family" restaurant. Kids are welcome but if they act up, it's time to take them for a walk or pick up my tab. Money doesn't buy manners.
Anyway, this is a great spot for a date, a special dinner, business lunches, etc. It's on the second floor of the Shangri-La hotel and takes you on a trip to another city somewhere. Five stars.

Excellent food and ambience with a great location and price-point. Originally we were sat adjacent to a family (the restaurant is family friendly) and, a few minutes in, the younger of the two children became fractious. Within moments were offered another table in a quieter part of the restaurant.

THANK YOU, MARKET RESTAURANT, FOR YOUR EXCELLENT, QUIET, PROFESSIONAL AND SOPHISTICATED ATMOSPHERE. WE DINE WITH YOU OFTEN AND ALWAYS RECOMMEND YOUR EXQUISITE RESTAURANT TO OUR FRIENDS AND VISITORS. WE ARE ABLE TO ACTUALLY HAVE A CONVERSATION WITHOUT THE HORRID INTERFERENCE OF BACKGROUND MUSIC. PLEASE CONTINUE TO KEEP THE WONDERFUL EUROPEAN ATMOSPHERE. YOU ARE THE ONLY RESTAURANT IN VANCOUVER THAT ADHERES TO ITS PRINCIPLES.

All good ordered was fantastic.
Steelhead salmon and scallops to start and lamb / beef tenderloin as entrees. High quality food and great taste. The service was amongst the best I've had dining out as there was a good balance of attentiveness and privacy given

Exceptional service provided by smiling and competent staff from beginning to end. However, having chosen the special tasting menu, 2 of the 4 courses were substandard. The meat dish (lamb) was a true disappointment consisting of a tough overcooked small piece of lamb, accompanied by a small tasteless withered carrot stick and I believe beet stick and good mashed potatoes. Desert was very bland. Overall, a very average but very expensive tasting menu. My overall rating reflects the high level of service and decor. I was offered a free glass of wine to compensate for the disappointing food which was appreciated.

We had an early reservation since that was the only one available. The restaurant was very quiet but never got noisy as others arrived. We were seated in a curved booth which was nice since it was an anniversary dinner. Wait staff was very attentive but not overbearing. Diverse menu with choices for varying palates. and a solid wine list. Food was beautifully plated, excellent preparation and an adequate serving. The evening was what we expected from a Jean-Georges restaurant. Definitely would return if we get back to Vancouver.
