This restaurant has quite a serious reputation in the area and it does impress with its level of professionalism, focus, and careful execution. The menu is creative and on point, very nice cocktail offerings as well as wine list, and a super server who is French and incredibly engaging and knowledgable. The food though really is the show-stopper and it... More

Used to think this the best restaurant in the county by a long mile but a recent Saturday visit was disappointing in many ways. Called ahead to say two of our three requested gluten free menus and was assured there would be no problem. However the GF choices were so limited it was ridiculous. Salads were wonderful but entree lobster,... More

I just don't understand it, Market is one of the best restaurants in the country, but somehow Carl Schroeder and his team of professionals seem to get better with each passing day. The menu is not only inventive, but it is just damn good. The food is always perfectly prepared and perfectly portioned. The service staff is some of the... More

SPECTACULAR: Have the blue cheese souffle and then the short ribs. Can't wait to return. We've come once/year for almost a decade when we visit friends at Santa Luz.

One of the best restaurants in San Diego. Chef Schroeder has been nominated y the James Beard foundation multiple times. His food uses seasonal ingredients and is creative. We really enjoyed our time here, service was top-notch and the course tasting is a good bet to enjoy his food.

The presentations were spectacular and the flavors were as wonderful. My husband and I had the most amazing burrata, tomato and other amazing things in the salad with a most beautiful presentation. It was a marriage of so many elements that were wonderful together. The beet and grapefruit salad was also lovely. The short ribs were deliciously coated with a... More

This is a favorite for our family. Everything is always fresh and beautifully presented. New decor is darker but still pleasant & food not to be missed.
