I love the staff at Mkt.!!! They are so personable, professional and they make you feel at home every time. Chef Alvin and his team cook delicious and creative dishes. Me and my husband have tried pretty much everything on the menu and have enjoyed every meal. Desserts are just as wonderful. We try to come her at least once a week or every other week.

MKT continues to be a (literally) tiny neighborhood gem. It never disappoints. They turn out creative, tasty and tasteful food. The menu is small but the choices varied. Service is always sharp. The wine list, like the menu, is small but with lots of good options in a range of prices. The one limitation to MKT is its size, which makes getting a prime time table a all to frequent misadventure. Plan ahead if such is your desire. It is well worth it.

Always, always, always order the green beans! They are fabulous and you won't be disappointed. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Also, I was thrilled to see some reasonably priced Souther Italian wines on the menu - for those of you who want to explore wines from this region, there is a mid-$30 bottle of negroamaro on the list.

Flew in to visit my daughter in Seattle and she raved about this resturant!! As good or better than NYC....staff was awesone. Food just delicious. They forgot to bring a dish but we felt " who cares" and they were very apologetic!

We had a good meal overall. Very good service, ok but not fabulous wine. Some dishes were really good (pea risotto, sweet potato croquettes) others just ok (scallops) and one somewhat lacking (a warm carrot salad that was not particularly flavorful, short on hazelnuts, and undercooked to the point of being difficult to manage, especially with the peculiarly hefty jumbo sized forks ). The place is tiny with an elegant upscale vibe, an interesting creative menu overall, and we'll probably go back to see what it's like at least one more time.

Our first visit to mkt. was wonderful, and I can't wait to go back. We shared the grilled green beans, roasted carrot salad, and butter lettuce salad, all delicious. Then we had the scallops and the salmon, equally good. I especially loved the green garlic purée with the scallops. We finished with a chocolate budino and an impressive glass of Capitello Dolcino dessert wine from the Willamette Valley. The service was perfect, polite, helpful, and timely. Another great ESR experience!
Top notch gem
had a phenomenal meal...they took great care of us. server was very nice and helpful/knowledgeable. everything we had was fantastic!! the green beans are amazing which sounds crazy because they're just green beans but they're the best green beans i've ever had. asparagus dish was also spot on. also the best tuna poke i've ever had-a very overdone dish but what they do with it here is new and fresh and makes you want to order ten more. the fish dishes were perfectly cooked, nice and flaky and juicy. the pastas were great-especially the pea risotto-so vibrant and fresh and light for a risotto. pork was very good. as were the desserts. top notch from start to finish!

This is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants for birthdays and anniversaries. The food is always excellent, as well as the service. Our favorite item on the menu is the crispy fried quail. It is so good that even though this is a restaurant that encourages shared plates, we always order two plates of the quail. Also highly recommend the grilled and marinated green beans and the grilled squid pasta.

It's a fairly small space, so the tables were a bit close, and we couldn't help hearing everything said at the neighboring tables. We were very impressed otherwise. The standout dishes for us were the Wagyu beef, and both deserts - the rhubarb and pistachio tart and the malted chocolate. We'll definitely be going back.
Fabulous Mothers Day dinner
Great dinner! We mentioned that we liked tasting menus and the chef offered to put one together - think we counted 10 separate items by the end- along with an abbreviated flight of accompanying wines (including splitting half glass portions as we are not heavy drinkers). We found the vinegar condiment with the oyster dish too sour but enjoyed everything else, especially the purple sweet potato croquettes, chèvre & pea raviolo, and the out-of-this-world hamachi ceviche with citrus cucumber ice. The place is tiny but well staffed so our food got to us quickly. Noise level meant we could converse easily. Seating is on cushioned banquettes which I found okay but my husband found a bit hard. Our bill was lower than comparable dinners at other foodie establishments.
Was in Seattle for the weekend to celebrate my finance's birthday. I read a lot of positive reviews for mkt and decided to go there for dinner. Cute, cozy place. We ordered several items on the menu to share and each one plate was delicious. Everything had such great flavors, some we're very familiar with, mixed with some we weren't familiar with. Service was super, very friendly servers and were attentive to us while also allowing us "space". My fiancé and I loved our dinner there and we will definitely be back the next time we're in Seattle.

mkt never disappoints. Each visit ends up being a memorable experience. If you allow the chefs to display their remarkable creativity and skill with your menu selections, you're guaranteed to leave impressed. Fresh ingredients, the warmth of their service, incredible attention to detail, and a cozy atmosphere make this my favorite restaurant in Seattle.

Very enjoyable evening. Food was very good and mostly inventive. Cheese presentation outstanding. Bean melange delicious. Risotto fresh, clean and flavorful. Trout expertly prepared. Brussel sprouts were just fair. Service was outstanding and immeasurably added to the dining experience. Wine pairing also excellent. Best meal we had in Seattle.
A nice neighborhood addition
Went with the adult family for my birthday. Most dishes hit and few missed but the menus offer an interesting variety, including fish and veggie dishes. The Steak Waygu was great and some of the veggies ie asparagus made for a tasty variety. Family style and recommended 2-3 small dishes per person with sharing (family style) which can quickly add up (check the menu) but it makes for an interesting and relatively fun experience. Not quite as good as Stowall's "How to Cook a Wolf" but it's still too soon. Small venue and tight with a vibrant atmosphere. Not intimate the the staff waited hand and foot. It's a nice addition to the neighborhood.
