Market on Houston-Sheraton Gunter Hotel Ratings and Reviews

Service was non-existent. The person who originally took my order basically disappeared. My first glass of tea was delivered by a manager, and another manager took care of other needs. Perhaps this waitperson should decide on whether they want to really be one.
Great Pre-Theatre Spot
Had Majestic Theatre tickets and wanted a light, quick dinner prior to show. This was a really nice find. Good selection of fresh, well prepared options. Nice wines by-the-glass. Clean, good atmosphere, servers and management were friendly, accommodating. They asked if we were going to theatre and made sure our food order and check were promptly delivered. Will definitely return here when attending Majestic again soon.
Market on Houston is perfectly located for a dinner prior to concerts at the Majestic. The food was great and super fresh, the wait staff attentive and knowledgeable and there is no better location.
We were thrilled to find this gem, unfortunately it was on our last of 4 days there. The service was fantastic and the food was the best we had in San Antonio. The omelet chef was was amazing!

Big disappointment. Read article about this restaurant being one of five up and coming foodie places and was anxious to check it out. When we arrived and clearly did not need reservations, we should have known something wasn't right. Food presentation was nice but the fried chicken and shrimp and grits were both cold. Never saw waiter again until we finally had gone ahead and eaten. Then waited 30 minutes for check.
Simple and delicious
Small menu, fresh-focused. Can't speak for brunch or late-night. It's in the Sheraton, so I'd hope they were open late. Basic wine list. Our server was new, so a little wobbly, but we got everything as ordered. Staff seemed very attentive to the patrons who were there and trying to make a start time at the Majestic. My dining companion and I were not under time constraints and enjoyed a leisurely meal. The arepas with smoked pork were crisp and light. And my bistro steak could have been cut with a fork, accompanied by perfectly crisp/tender asparagus. Dessert cannoli shell was a little hard and therefore difficult to share, but the chocolate creme filling almost made up for it. 2-tops are a little tight, but the space is bright and welcoming and a nice choice for a weeknight downtown.
Good Theater Fare
We go to the Majestic regularly and look for restaurants that are walking distance. The Market is convenient and has a theater menu that will ensure you make your show on time. The menu is varied enough to cover a variety of tastes. Service was very good and this last visit we had a nice table that let us look out on Houston Street. Very nice!
Sheraton Gunter Market on Houston
We had to wait over 20 min for valet parking, but the hostess stamped our ticket so we didn't have to pay the normal $10-20 to park elsewhere downtown. Nice ambiance (unfortunately too cold and raining to sit outside ), good service, and fair pricing for the dinner. Somewhat disappointed that they did not offer the full dinner menu that night. It was a fixed price, appetizer, main course and desert. 3 choices for each. Good wine selection. Just a note. .this across the street from the Majestic Theater so it's very handy for the Broadway shows, concerts, etc. There is also a late night bar inside the hotel beside the restaurant so you have a nice place to wait out the traffic leaving the theatre.
cute but disappointing
Popped in for a quick lunch. Cute atmosphere. Service was terrible. Crab cakes were good. Fried chicken was underseasoned, bone-in and covered in gravy which made the skin mostly soggy and very hard to eat. Flat-bread smores was a cool concept but the bread itself needed to be cooked more.
A bit of a disappointment
I ordered the caprese salad which, while good, had been downsized from the last time I was at the restaurant a month or so ago. At that time, the salad consisted of 5 or 6 large tomato slices with the same size mozzarella slices. This time I got 3 slices of each and the rest of the plate was filled with greens, definitely a disappointment. It certainly did not fill me up! That being said, what I did get was very good and the service was excellent.

Standard stop for us before shows at the Majestic right across the street. Fresh food, prepared with care without the ever-so-present price gouging that goes on in area restaurants. Would like a larger wine selection and an option to order off the drink menu at Bar 414 (also located in the Sheraton Gunter) would put M.O.H. in a class by itself compared to area dining locations and options.
The Market is definitely a place to which we'll return. The service was very good. The food was too. Their most popular item is the fried Chicken and for good reason -- good chicken, thinly breaded, moist and tender with a great flavor. The steak was perfectly cooked to order. We shall return!

I had high hopes for this "farm to table" restaurant but was disappointed. The food was uninventive and mediocre. The place was empty at 7 pm. I sat at the bar and the bartender was attentive and nice, but it didn't make up for the uninspired, bland food.
GOOD HOTEL RESTAURANT
I normally have breakfast at this restaurant inside the Sheraton Gunter hotel. The buffet is good and the staff great.

I dined here for the thanksgiving buffet. If I had it to do over again, I'd pick another location. We were seated and nobody attended to our table. When we finally got attention, I requested a coke and get this got a diet coke three times in a row. In general the food was not great either. Cold mashed potatoes, no desserts, dry and no pink prime rib were the lowlights of the visit. We also had a hard time with payment, lots of confusion with the staff and elevator music was turned up way too loud.
Great Hotel Restaurant
I have to compliment the staff for getting me in my on short notice...I made the reservation 30 mins prior to my seating. It happened to be a theatre night, so very very busy. They seated me down and I ordered my steak (which was done very nicely) and got my glass of wine all in 20 mins! Now that's service!!! The food was good, but the service was AWESOME!!!

Waiter was very slow and forgetful. He was the only person waiting tables outside and it wasn't very busy at all. Ordered a lemon Danish and coffee which was great. We were a bit upset that breakfast/brunch was over at 11:30 a.m. Once our third person for our party arrived we decided to eat elsewhere.
Charming spot along the Riverwalk
We had a Friday 7 pm reservation and found the restaurant light, airy and not at all crowded. The food was delicious and the server attentive and friendly.
Downtown & Missing Something
With lots of competition in the downtown area for dining we expected a bit more to a simple sit and dine location. The menu has a number of interesting items that are not easy to duplicate, the fresh market to table concept has been around for some time but MOH has done a great job with setting up a place that can offer great food at a reasonable price. The only missing element that will hold them back is the wait staff. More attention to detail needs to be stressed by the management team, tables needs to be cleaned in a timely manner, the server should check back often to make sure things are OK with the customer.

We ate there twice. Tfhe young lady that waited on us Sat. night (7/18) was very nice but had to be reminded alot for items we requested. Food was good and my grandchildren appreciated the choices they had on the kids menu. Sunday brunch was also good and the gentleman who waited on us was very nice and attentive. I would go to the restaurant again.
GOOD HOTEL BREAKFAST
I normaly have breakfast here and evrerything was great with the friendly staff and food. If you stay in the hotel visit this place.
GUNTER HOTEL RESTAURANT
I like to have Breakfast during my stay at the Gunter. The staff very friendly and you have what you need for a great start in the morning.
Too Much Salt
The lamb meatballs were too salty. We asked several people in our party to try them, and all agreed they were inedible. I did not enjoy the flavor of the Oysters Rockefeller pizza, but that's my fault for ordering it. One of our party ordered a burger and he said it was good. The main thing this restaurant has going for it is it's proximity to the theater, and the convenience of getting a handicapped individual to the show.
Our server Rey was very attentive and informative. We've had him many times in the past and try to get him whenever we're there.
Service was awful. Server threw the food down and we never saw her again. One at our table NEVER got the food that the menu said would come with that entree. Never again
Salmon was bland. service was slow. A little pricey for what was offered.
Soup and Salads
The menu isn't very diverse...soups, salads, wraps, hamburgers, flatbreads and pizza. Couldn't get the wraps warmed and couldn't swap the homemade chips ($4) for the Fries ($4) unless you ordered a hamburger. Food was good, but if I dine there again, think I will opt for soup and/or salads. They look delicious! Recommendation for the wait staff...when bringing back change or credit card receipts, 1) bring back the original ticket and 2) don't assume the patron is going to leave a huge tip...bring back change (break down a $5 bill) for the cash paying customer or you might get no tip or only $1 (if that's the only thing the customer has), especially if the bill is less than $10.
The Market on Houston was very disappointing. The food was mediocre and the service poor. I was looking forward to a good place to eat before attending the plays at the Majestic, but I will not not be returning to Market on Houston.
Another night at The Majestic
This was the third time we went to the Marketplace before going to a show at The Majestic. We enjoyed our previous two visits, this one not so much. The food was excellent but the service left much to be desired. The waiter was not familiar with the menu and was not very attentive, not only to us but other tables in his area. This will not discourage us from returning and hope this was just an off night.
Convenient for pre or post majestic shows. Recommend reservation
GOOD HOTEL RESTAURANT
Is the Gunter Hotel Restaurant. Normally I have great experience but today the service was below the standard. I ate fine and regularly have breakfast here. Is not going to win a competition but is a good hotel restaurant. The place is nice and also de Bar of the restaurant with an open view of the lobby.
VERY GOOD HOTEL RESTAURANT
Good quality and service. They homemade Pizzas and their bread. For breakfast they have a Buffet with some alternatives. The restaurant is like a Wine bar. They have a terrace and food is good.
Christmas Day Buffet
We were here for the Christmas Day buffet. They did not seem prepared for how busy they were. There was always a shortage of plates and bowls. Everyone was working hard, just not enough staff. The food was good, just not always hot. But overall we enjoyed the experience.
Rude hostess and waiter
Everything about our experience here was awful. The staff was rude and the food was mediocre at best.
I have enjoyed dinner here before and in ...
I have enjoyed dinner here before and invited my book club to have dinner. We were six people, and there appeared to be only one other table occupied. I was there a bit early, but when my friends started arriving, the waiter brought water but didn't offer to take any drink orders or appetizers (which would have given us happy hour prices). When the drink order was finally taken, it took quite some time for them to be delivered. There was also a significant time lapse between the salad/appetizer delivery and the entree delivery. The food was pretty good, but not outstanding. It was nicely presented (plated) and visually appealing. This restaurant has a very nice location, and it has potential, but I wonder why each time I've dined there, it seems pretty empty.
Cold food, sloppily heaped on the plate. And that for a special holiday meal. Service was poor-to-lousy. Only good thing was the apple pie. That was a wonderful apple pie.
Good food; disappointing service
It isn't often that I'm disappointed with a meal through Open Table, but this one was one of those times. Service was lackluster and it detracted from what was otherwise a tasty meal and pleasant preparation. Our server was pretty new and didn't know that some of the beer options weren't available for a beer flight, but never offered us alternative options. Also, the restaurant appeared to be short staffed and it showed; it took quite a bit of time to get our check at the end of the meal as well. It has the makings of being a solid restaurant if service issues can be addressed.
Stopped by find something nearby majestic. They had a show menu. The weird flatbread pizza we got was very gross looking with mounds of cheese and green tomato sauce. Desert was very old. Maybe the regular menu would be better but our experience was not good. Service was lacking too.
We are long-time season ticket holders to the Broadway series at the Majestic. However, for some reason we had neglected to make a dinner reservation ahead and by the time we realized that we had not there were not many places available for pre-theater times on a Saturday night except for Market on Houston. We should have realized this was a red flag waving...however went ahead and made took a quick Open Table slot! The PrixFixe Theater Dinner options were the most unimaginative I have ever seen! 1st Course a Soup; Entree- choice of some FlatBreads; or Salads; or a Shrimp Pasta dish! and 3rd course Dessert!!!! Then it was rushed like show was on in seconds...had over an hour left!!
Have had good experiences at Barron's, the restaurant just replaced by the Market on Houston. I was a little skeptical upon seeing the new arrangement but am happy I booked it for 4 of my friends when we had dinner and went to a show across the street. The waiter was so patient and helpful to us while waiting for a couple, who were delayed, to arrive. Everyone enjoyed the food - not exactly your regular, typical fare, but interestig and well prepared. I'd certainly return.
