Market Tavern Ratings and Reviews

Horrible Customer Experience with waitress Celeste. The Open Table app doesn't allow enough characters for my detailed lengthy review of my very disappointing experience. I was able to post my scathing review on Yelp!, TripAdvisor and ZAGET Google review. Please read before considering dining at Market Tavern with waitress Celeste. The food is very tasty and.is not to be missed !

I've had lunch/dinner here before and really love the food and the atmosphere here. A friend was visiting and I invited her here since she hasn't been here. Upon arrival she immediately said she loved the atmosphere. The food here is always amazing! I got the pork chop dish and she got a beef dish. She raved about how tender the beef was and how the whole dish was so delicious. The pork chop was amazing as well. Wish we would have had dessert but we were stuffed. Will definitely be back soon.

Food and service was pretty good. My two complaints are, 1- they brought a water cup that was half empty and clearly someone had drunk out of it, 2- I ordered a glass of wine and the glass was clearly very dirty.

So much fun! Down to a person, was greeted by anyone who worked there. Showed awareness and the importance of reaching out to provide a great first impression. Food was great. Tanya was our server. Can't wait to return. Great ice tea also. Super friendly. Evident teamwork across the board. And no patron in my view was on the cell phone during dinner.

Enjoyed eating at the Tavern Market, interesting menu. Server, Brien was great and we had special input regarding donuts from Julia, we all ordered them to go. Thanks to Julia we all enjoyed homemade donuts, and they were very good. Great time.

i love this restaurant. we eat here more than anywhere else in Stockton. but, I was very disappointed in the four cheese lasagna this night. it came out cold and then I sent it back and when it returned, it was just warm and not hot as it should have been. very disappointed,. But, my husband loved his steak and our two friends loved the short ribs and polenta.

Even with a reservation, we were seated in the bar, directly under speakers. We asked to be moved, and we got a table, in the bar, directly across from a door which goes outside--lots of cold air. Music was loud, patrons were loud, and bar tenders literally threw the empty bottles into the garbage. I was not impressed. Reservation means restaurant, NOT THE BAR! Food was good, service was good, but for $70 for dinner for two, I expect more.

We are regulars at Market Tavern. The food is consistently good to great, very fresh, and the service prompt. We went for Christmas Eve with a reservation and had to wait a bit because they at first wanted to seat us in the bar. I really dislike bar seating, especially when there are numerous TVs going and you can't hear yourself think. Fortunately, they seated us in the back near the fire. Our server didn't notice us at first but she made up for it with very friendly and attentive service throughout the meal. It was quite busy for the holiday and the staff did a very good job considering the rush.
Christmas Eve tradition at Market Tavern ...
Christmas Eve tradition at Market Tavern went very well. It was festive and our meal was delicious: white bean/chicken soup, short ribs, pork chops, and Meyer lemon meringue pie. It was suggested I try 'The Nog' which was the perfect festive drink. The serving team were friendly and helpful...It was a great Christmas Eve!

After making a reservation ahead of time, I was extremely disappointed that we were seated in the bar area. We had people bumping into us, there was yelling and screaming from the bar, the noice level was so high we could barely have a conversation and the "chair" my friend had to sit on was a bar stool, with no back! This is not appropriate seating for people wanting to have a nice dining experience. Especially when we took the time to make reservations ahead of time. Those wanting to simply have dinner, should be seated in the "dining room," NOT the bar. This was a VERY disappointing experience.

Market Tavern is one of the best that Stockton has to offer. The food is always fresh and full of flavor. There are always menu staples but also seasonal offerings that a pleasure to the palette. The bar menu is extensive and full of local selections. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Whenever our family and friends go to Market Tavern, we know we can expect an all around quality experience. Whenever we have visitors, we know we can rely on Market Tavern to help showcase the best of Stockton.

Seven thirty reservation; table didn't materialize until 8. I understand people don't always leave promptly but really, a 30 minute wait on a weekday is a little much. Once seated, service was great, food was good.

The Thanksgiving Menu here at Market Tavern was soooo delicious, the service was awesome and the ambiance is just so relaxing and romantic!! ❤️👌🏼🙌🏼 Yes, definitely on the upper end of the scale! But the price is just right!!!

Our family of four has celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday at Market Tavern for two years now. Both times, everything was fresh and delicious--especially the stuffing, which was full of delightful surprises, like mushrooms and walnuts. The service is friendly and attentive. We have decided that Thanksgiving at Market Tavern will be our tradition from now on.

For our annual Thanksgiving celebrations my husband and I were delighted with the delicious 3-course Turkey meal. The squash soup with apple bits was tasty, light and dark turkey was moist, mushroom stuffing flavorful, the yams just the way I like it, and the pumpkin pie was the perfect end. We had a very friendly server, Celeste, who made sure we were enjoying our time. And the extra leftovers? What a surprise! It made for wonderful turkey sandwiches the next day. We've already made reservations for Christmas Eve! HO! HO! HO!

We got there at 7:15, because parking is so limited with the other restaurants near by. Reservations at 7:30. Was told that the people were finished but still sitting at our table. Best tip, dont make reservations. They seem to value the walk ins while we waited 45 minutes. Had to remind the hosts that we were waiting. They seem to enjoy talking with each other than notifying us how long we had to wait. Even had the same host ask us if we had a reservation after waiting a half an hour! 3 times i had to tell them i had a reservation. Another 20 mins to get served salad for just me and husband. Another 20 mins for only two meals while the other couple waited 40 mins for burgers that were dry. My husband skirt steak was suppose to be med rare, it was on one side but well on the other side. We haven't had servive this bad for a long time. Only thing i can say positive about this place, bottle of wine was reasonable and i enjoyed my pizza but it very oily.

Wow! What a great find! We had tickets to see The Beach Boys at the Bob Hope Theatre in Stockton and wanted to do dinner first. Had never been to this restaurant, but we were both blown away: Fantastic, friendly service; great cocktail menu; amazing dinner menu. Everything was just perfect.
While I don't live in the Stockton area, I'd gladly go back to this amazing restaurant! I HIGHLY recommend!

Had a reservation at 7:15. Got to the restaurant at 7. Said they would seat us right away, but after waiting 1/2hr I went to follow up. I think they forgot about us!! People there without a reservation that arrived after us had already been seated. Disappointed with the hostesses. But dinner & drinks were amazing!! Will go again for sure
