Market Street Grill - Cottonwood Ratings and Reviews
Had the best server ever. Her name was MJ and she made the entire evening so enjoyable. The food is typically good at this location, but tonight was especially amazing. I ordered the fresh grouper, and it was done to perfection. Hadn't enjoyed grouper since my last visit to the Bahama's. I'm still swooning over it!
Unfortunately, the last few times of dining here have not been great experiences. This most recent was probably the one where we don't go back for some time and here's why. 1- The clam chowder was so scorching hot, the clams were overcooked. 2- They were out of crab cakes at 8pm. This is a main menu item, not a special item. I find it difficult to understand running out of one of the staples on the menu. 3- The Florentine bake was way overcooked. The halibut was so dry and tough, your teeth clicked while chewing and the crab was chewy and had no flavor. 4- The overall service was extremely slow. I had to ask for my drink 3 times before getting it.
It's understandable that once in a while things will happen but, this has been a pattern for at least the last 3 times we've eaten here. When you drop $100 on dinner for two, I don't think it would be unreasonable to expect a high level of quality coming out of the kitchen resulting in a meal worth repeating. It seems like since the death of the owner, things have declined.
first of all when came in, table was dirty and had old butter sitting there, then the ambient was not the greatest need of remodeling and new plating, especially for the price people pay for their food. Then the food was not worth the price, salmon was very dry and didn't have a lot of flavor and same for the halibut and sea bass, presentation was not there, and the worst part was the side salad, it seemed old and seem that they didn't take the time to cut the lettuce and make it look presentable and didn't know whats a Caesar salad instead they just brought a toss salad with caesar dressing ....it more looked like chopped with hands. I mean for the price of the food I feel like it should be one of or the best seafood restaurant around utah. they really need to improve their flavor and moisture on the fish....and make way better salads. It was embarrasing.
Still one of the few seafood restaurants that serve halibut. Went during crabfest. I had the crab stuffed halibut. It was done just right. Our son had the halibut fish and chips a family favorite. Serve was spot on. The Cottonwood location is very scenic with a good view of the mountains and with a mountain stream cutting across the outdoor patio. For a place 800 miles away from the nearest ocean they have a way with seafood.
Market Street Grille came highly recommended by a friend who lives in the area. We made a 7pm reservation for Friday night, and even then had a 10 minute wait. The restaurant has a fun "New England fish house" decor, complete with a lively oyster bar. The service was timely and friendly. We both ordered seafood. My husband's Ahi tuna was wonderful. My Alaskan planked salmon was over-seasoned and a bit overdone for my taste. Still, it did not warrant sending it back. We splurged on the chocolate cake to split and still had to take some home! Net, an enjoyable evening.
Disappointing visit. The food was very good as always, but the service was so slow it was very disturbing. First we had a 6pm reservation, it took 15 mins to be seated--I have dined at Market street where I have been 15 mins late for my reservation and they have cancelled it. Should go both ways, and at 6pm, please it should not be a 15 min wait when you have a reservation.
Server was also very slow, bar was slow, took forever to get food. In total we were at our table for 1 and 1/2 hours. That is too long. There is no restaurant that doesn't want to turn a table in more than that time. And as a guest, I don't want to wait that long.
Second time in a row that we have had a disappointing dining experience. Food is good, rest not so much.
The service was great. I had the special a steak with lobster. The "steak" was 1/4 in thick and mostly fat and grissle. The management should be embarrassed by the tablespoon of lobster meat. For that I paid $35. Chef, how could you serve that and call it special?
So disappointing. My friend took me for my birthday lunch. We ordered oysters, chowder, and a caprese salad. The service was so slow, the table of three that came in AFTER us were served full hot entrees BEFORE we got our salad. The server knew nothing about oysters - introduced the Select Northwest as "West Coast", and called the balsamic glaze "sauce". Actually, that part is kind of funny now.
I have enjoyed dining at Market Street Cottonwood over the years, from special occasions to business meals and large parties. The quality of the food is consistently good but some of the menu items are a bit on the expensive side, although this could be a supply and demand issue with seafood. The service is generally prompt and very good. I love the views of the mountains.
Wish the salmon sandwich had more veggies (on the patty or on the side). The crab cakes were light, flaky and mostly crab with no fillers added and were served with my favorite green, arugula. The New England chowder was/is a masterpiece, as usual, and served piping hot-- the way we enjoy soup!
Attentive service and delicious food is the perfect combination for a lunch gathering with friends.
Poor food no taste. We were six people only my granddaughter like her Ravioli dish. The fishes from salmon to trout were tasteless. The sauce for the muscles was supposed to be marina sauce it was tasteless tomato sauce. Dinner was well over $250.00 and was not worth $10.00 my birthday was supposed to enjoyable but it was food disaster
It was all just OK. Market street is now officially overpriced. Things are just a little too much for the getting dated restaurant. Menu is now really boring. It's good and fine but not enticing or exciting at all anymore. It's past it. Do something now. Make and advertise a changed menu. Quick.
Market Street Grill still has the most delicious clam chowder anywhere It's worth the trip just for the chowder. Their seafood salad is refreshing and their warm crusty bread is excellent. It is unlikely you would get the server we had on New Year's Eve. The service is usually good but we practically had to stand up and wave our arms to get our server's attention.
We went for New Year's Eve. Our server was a little harried and scatter brained. He noticed my soup spoon was dirty and then forgot to bring me another one. He did bring me another bowl of soup but by then my husband and daughter had finished their salad and soup. He misplaced my frequent diner card, apologized and told me where I could request another. Luckily, my daughter looked down and saw it on the extra chair at our table. He was a nice guy but a bit organized. Kind of dampened our evening.
Disappointing upon checking in. Despite my efforts of communicating with manager via email nearly a month ahead( celebrating hubby 's 60th) . Greeted with you will have to take what's available 🙄. I understand that it was Christmas Eve and staff wants to 'wrap it up' for holidays but don't accept reservations then! By the way , waitress we had she was throwing the menu, napkin at me . Very embarrassing! Then to be told with 'it's my 4th day!"
Customer's standpoint - we are still paying for meal and service irrespectively!
Shame as food was good. Decor good but lose the ketchup bottles from the table!!
The early bird special is great. Three courses plus bread for $20. Service was slow but that is pretty much always the case here. Love the decor, it's especially festive at holiday time. For a group of six request a round table on the upper level-- pony walls give a more private dining experience.
We frequent Market Street often, we are part of the frequent diner club. I was severely disappointed with this trip. We made reservations for 6:30pm and we were seated promptly when we arrived. Everything was going well, until we waited almost an hour for our food to be brought out to the table. I had a discussion with the waiter and the manager to let them know that I didn't find this acceptable as this has never happened before. I am not someone looking for a free meal, I can pay for my meal. I am someone that if I am going to a fine restaurant I expect good service. The manager did offer free dessert which was fine, but it would have been better to just receive the good service to begin with.
As always our experience at Market Street Grill was outstanding. The service was perfect, she was always right there when we needed her. The food was amazing for everyone in our party. For special occasions or business reasons this place is Top of the List.
