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.

Market Street Oyster Bar - Cottonwood Ratings and Reviews

In error, I made a reservation for the Cottonwood Market Street Oyster Bar instead of their restaurant. Fortunately, there was room in the restaurant so they were able to seat us there. My husband and I had one of their specials, the white fish with mango chutney, and it was delicious. It is a comfortable restaurant, has a great Sunday brunch so you might want to try that and a lovely patio for summer dining.

The server was a little pushy and when we told her that the food was cold she was telling us that we were wrong, that she saw that cook prepare it, but the eggs were cold to the touch so I don't know what the problem was. The steaks and potatoes were warm. The steaks are always very good there. The manager did bring us out new warm eggs and they were very good. It was nice that table was ready and waiting for us and we did not have to wait. It have been a sometime since we had been there and we are looking forward to going back.

Food was good but service was very slow...we requested lemons for water 4 times before getting any. We were there over 30 minutes before we were able to get our dinner order taken (appetizers and drink she were ordered). On a Friday I would expect these delays but Saturday was not nearly as busy!

Syd, our server, although new, was wonderful. She made our dining experience very smooth and comfortable by keeping everything on time and being super attentive to our needs. She renewed our faith in Market Street after a period of only fair service. I hope to see her when I go back.
The food was ok. The oysters were very muddy, the tomatoes in the chapters salad were anemic, and the Oregon Bay and Alaskan shrimp combo meal was extremely small. The bleu bacon burgers were raved about, and the fries were great.

My husband and I eat here often. We like the atmosphere and the food is usually good. Lately, however, it has been less reliably good. Salad not always as cold and crisp as it used to be. My halibut au gratin was terrible, the fish overcooked and tough, what there was of it - pretty skimpy, just a couple of pieces of dry halibut and rubbery shrimp. Not the quality we expect from Gastronomy!

We are long time customers of Gastronomy, including the Market Street Grill. We especially enjoy the Oyster Bar. Austin, our waiter, could not have been more pleasant and attentive!!! The experience was incredibly positive!!

If you are looking for a restaurant which has great service, good food, and an adult atmosphere then you found The Oyster Bar in Cottonwood. My husband and I enjoy celebrating birthdays, anniversay, or a night out at The Oyster Bar especially during the Summer time. The specials always include either Salmon or Halibut, but their Trout is also very good. Don't miss their signature bread. Enjoy!
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!

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 $300.00 for 4 of us, I left not very happy with this visit. Don't know if they have a new chef, or if this was just a fluke. Hoping for the later.
I have been a customer of the Market Street Group since they opened many years ago.
The food and service have always been superior.
I am sad to say their prices have increased disproportionate to other prices around town and I find myself looking for a new Sea Food Place. I will still go there but not nearly as much as I have in the past
First Horrid Experience
I am an avid Market Street customer. My family and I dine here all the time and we usually know a lot of the staff and can tell you the menu by heart. Well this last week we went it was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. Note to self, don't go on a Friday night you will be neglected.
Late night dinner at the Cottonwood Oyster Bar
As usual, Gastronomy carries on Tom Sieg's innovations in the Cottonwood Oyster Bar. The cocktails were good and creative. My wife had the "Naughty School Girl" because she likes a sweeter mix and this one was very good. I had a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a New Zealand variety which went perfect with my meal. The oysters were fresh and briny. The salmon was done and served on a cedar plank and was quite tasty. I had the crab Louis...it was wonderful. Desert was fruit, vanilla ice cream covered with sabayon sauce. Again, tasty. Our waiter, Gary M., was extremely helpful and professional. His recommendations were right on!
My food was cold and I was not impressed. I have been there several times to the restaurant side. This time I took my mom for her birthday. Never being at this type of place before. It was an embarrassment to me in the presents of my mom. It's a great place but far from impressed this time. 113$ 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.
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.
