About Market Street Oyster Bar - Cottonwood
In 2000, Gastronomy opened it"s first location outside of downtown Salt Lake City. Located in the southern part of the city, the Market Street Grill and Oyster Bar Cottonwood were Gastronomy's first restaurants built from the ground up. Serving the same delicious fresh seafood and tender steaks that you have come to enjoy at our other Market Street locations, but with stunning views of the Wasatch mountains, our Cottonwood location also features a Fresh Fish Market and spectacular patio dining. Private dining facilities include our Creekside Private Rooms, the Garden Court adjacent to Big Cottonwood Creek, and extraordinary Roof Top Dining.

Children should not be allowed in the oyster bar, there was one child acting up which was pretty annoying.

The cioppino was quite good. Haven't eaten it anywhere else so I can't compare quality . The halibut burger was barely edible, rubbery and hardly recognizable as fish. Very disappointed.
Been here bunch times worst experience. Food wasn't up to standards. Service slower slow to top off this restaurant customers walking tables telling is a lot of people waiting and should go. May come back
Not my first choice
I always go to Oyster Bar when I want prime rib, not only it is great, it is on the "Special" before 7pm. I was so looking for it that night, but was told they were out, since I don't eat fish, (I know it is known for its fish) I chose the filet mignon, which was also great, but pricey for me. They did give me a "discount" of $4.00 off the price. Maybe if our waiter was a bit faster, I would have received my prime rib!

Very good, inexpensive, quality food. They use healthy, organic ingredients, & you can taste the difference

I've always loved Market Street Oyster Bar, but this visit was different. Two of us ordered the halibut stuffed with a crab cake and they were terrible. The halibut was overcooked and the crab cake was so salty that I couldn't eat it. My husband ordered a steak and it was not only tiny, but way overcooked. Since we were entertaining friends, didn't want to complain so just let it go. However, with a bill of close to $300.00 for 4 of us, I left not very happy with this visit. Don't know if they have a new chef, or if this was just a fluke. Hoping for the later.
I have been a customer of the Market Street Group since they opened many years ago. The food and service have always been superior. I am sad to say their prices have increased disproportionate to other prices around town and I find myself looking for a new Sea Food Place. I will still go there but not nearly as much as I have in the past

Perfect for a fancier date night. The food is all so so good. Every time I have been there the waiter/ waitress are really great.
Great Dining Experience
While staying in the Salt Lake City-Murray area, we always try to see the kids and grandkids. The MSG-Cottonwood is a great place to have a fabulous meal, cocktails, and enjoy great service. We go every trip.
The food was amazing. Everything on the Menu looked great. The Halibut was fresh and had a great flavor. They had a few specials that also sounded great. The drinks were superb and the server was very polite and knowledgeable.

Good food. Good drinks. Nice atmosphere though a bit noisy. Reliable and friendly.
First Horrid Experience
I am an avid Market Street customer. My family and I dine here all the time and we usually know a lot of the staff and can tell you the menu by heart. Well this last week we went it was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. Note to self, don't go on a Friday night you will be neglected.
Late night dinner at the Cottonwood Oyster Bar
As usual, Gastronomy carries on Tom Sieg's innovations in the Cottonwood Oyster Bar. The cocktails were good and creative. My wife had the "Naughty School Girl" because she likes a sweeter mix and this one was very good. I had a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a New Zealand variety which went perfect with my meal. The oysters were fresh and briny. The salmon was done and served on a cedar plank and was quite tasty. I had the crab Louis...it was wonderful. Desert was fruit, vanilla ice cream covered with sabayon sauce. Again, tasty. Our waiter, Gary M., was extremely helpful and professional. His recommendations were right on!
My food was cold and I was not impressed. I have been there several times to the restaurant side. This time I took my mom for her birthday. Never being at this type of place before. It was an embarrassment to me in the presents of my mom. It's a great place but far from impressed this time. 113$ later & 4 days later still not impressed.

We had 6:45 reservations and did not get seated until 7:30. Took 1 hour 15 minutes to get our meal. People that were seated after us were done with there meal before we got ours. The food was good but the wait was not. Waiter did not know his wines. Ask fora type of wine and he gave us another . For the amount of money spent overall very disappointed.
This visit was much better than our previous visit. Food was good and service this time was great.
Bustling, a bit like Legal's in and around Boston
Appetizers are the strong suit, especially anything that has Oysters. Entrees aren't worth the price or special.
Sunday night 7:00 not to busy. We are seated and when the server came around he said "We are really swamped tonight so be prepared." Not a good start and the restaurant was not even three quarters full so I don't think they were swamped just unprepared. Needless to say we did not have our order taken for an hour after we arrived. The last few times we have been at this restaurant the service has been horrible. This was one of your favorite places to go, but we will not be back now.
We had a lovely dinner, the oysters were fantastic and our meal was very good. The waiter had nice drink suggestions as well
Overall a good experience!
Went for the early bird and we were very happy. The salmon was done perfectly and was fresh! The waiter Michael was great!!!! I would give it a thumbs up!
Too Pricey and Noisy
We love Market Street for the food, but it's getting too expensive to go as often as we'd like. Also, the noise level is so high it's difficult to visit with others in your group, especially to those who wear hearing aids.

Oysters are always fresh! My favorite is Cioppino. Perfect if you want a variety in a warm tomato saucy base.
Great birthday celebration
The food was great and our server, Michael was attentive but not over bearing. We love this tradition we started a few years ago of taking my husband out for his birthday with the adult children and their spouses. We will probably be back next year.
Not the usual experience
Everything was excellent, except the service. Our waiter was not up to Oyster Bar standards.
Worthwhile experience--never disappointed!
My husband and I love to come to this restaurant. We live in downtown so this is a destination event for us. Good food, service and ambience. What more could one want?

Always a sure value! We live to go to Market Street Grill, either for brunch, lunch or dinner.
A bit disappointed
Normally a great spot, but not so much this time. The service was marginal. My market street salad was ok, but only because it was cold. The rest of the meals were also cold, but weren't supposed to be. Probably because it took almost an hour to get them to our table.
great place! The food is wonderful. Service was very good. It is one of my favorite places to go eat out.

My in-laws took me and my wife here for my 35th birthday. Food, as always, was great. Server seemed like a new guy - but he was very attentive and organized.

This is always a great place for brunch. I love their menu.
The last three visits we have ordered a special fish dish. All three times the $30+ entries have been over cooked. Sinful for a fish restaurant. If not for the wonderful wait staff (Mike), we'd probably not return.
Another great night
I love it when our table is ready! We went for a birthday celebration. The waiter, Sarah, was attentive but not hovering. Everyone's food was delicious! I loved the summer caprese salad available. The basaltic reduction was perfect! All in all, it was a great experience. I always recommend this restaurant to friends.
great place to eat
great food , good service and always great people. Fred the managing partner is fantastic.
The best salmon
Very nice dinner. The salmon on a cedar plank was excellent, as were the mashed potatoes and even the broccoli! Service by Monica B. was also excellent, and everything well timed. They have been raising their prices, along with everybody else, but this meal was definitely worth it. Just make sure they give you your OpenTable points!
