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.

My wife is from SD and we are lucky enough to have a place on the other side of the valley from Market, which is our first dinner stop every time we are back in town. It is undoubtedly one of the best restaurants I have had the pleasure to visit, not just locally, but in the entire USA. Their... More

Went there for a business dinner. This restaurant is amongst the best....creative, artistic, delicious food, excellent service and lovely atmosphere. Simple and elegant. You cannot go wrong here...for friends, family, business or a romantic evening. Reservations are a must, especially in crowded "race" season in Del Mar. The Market is a local favorite, and one can see why !

This is a favorite restaurant of mine. While I generally go to "top and trendy" restaurants, the minute I leave these restaurants I forget about the meal, restaurant and decor. Not so here. The menu is wonderful and inspired. The presentation of dishes are works of art. Not too fussy, but creative, where you say to yourself "I should remember... More

Upon our return to the restaurant, we noticed upon entering, a new pizza oven as part of the renovation. After yet another fabulous dinner in the restaurant, we inquired about it. The bar had a new menu, including pizza and several other tasty treats from around the globe. We decided to return later in the week to try it. We... More

Farm to table is the motto. The service and the food is as good as it gets. Be sure to make a reservation or no chance. We finally found a "10"

I recently enjoyed Dinner at Market in Del Mar. I enjoyed the amberjack, avocado and Dungeness tartar to start followed by grouper with spring vegetables and ravioli. Both courses were outstanding. I also enjoyed the bread; they make home-made corn muffins with sweet butter. I had a glass of very good chardonnay. I must say wines by the glass are... More

I had been to Market some years ago, but I didn't think it was that great. Recently I went back to a new menu, new decor, and new atmosphere. It went from a B to an A in my mind. Jason, our waiter was highly professional and personable.My soup and veal dish were excellent. The vegetables were from Chino's farm... More
