Market is possibly my favorite restaurant and bar combination in San Diego (I'm liking the Pony Room lately too). I'm a cocktail snob and I've loved every drink there. The nibbles on the bar side are delicious. And the food on the restaurant side is worth the price, which is hard to find in San... read more

Jennifer Fine the outstanding concierge at the Del Mar/Hilton recommended this restaurant to me. Her recommendation without a doubt was a treasure. Now I have two treasures in Del Mar -- 1. Jennifer and 2. The Market Restaurant & Bar. I'm sure Jennifer has other places of interest and fun. Just look for her at the Del Mar/Hilton in San... More

Market Restaurant is located in Del Mar across from the Polo Fields. Very comfortable bar with friendly service. Good crowd always so make reservations for a table or just drink at the bar while you wait. Valet parking only. Good food.

The food was the unpretentious and perfectly prepared and presented. The chef makes it seem natural and effortless. Highly recommended!

My husband and I dined at Market for the first time a few Sunday's ago. Having heard great things, we were excited to try a new place for date night. We were not disappointed. We sat at the the more casual bar area and were taken care of by Eve, she recommended I try the Sunchoke soup as well as... More

The service was very attentive. I began with the Scallop & local Citrus Ceviche. It was very fresh and refreshing. A great dish. My wife had the Roasted chicken-noodle soup. She said it was very tasty. We as a table of four shared the main course lobster dish as an appetiser. It turned out wonderful. I had the RoastedCornish Game... More

From the moment we walked in our bartender Eve not only made sure that we were comfortable- she also had the best recommendations. Everything from the amuse bouche(s) to the delicate sashimi bites were absolutely perfect. Eve's wine pairings were intelligently matched for each course of our meal. We ended up deciding on the Maine Lobster with a small portion... More

Decided to make a reservation here based on the recommendations of a server from another restaurant and the rating on TripAdvisor. We were looking for a fine dining experience that was not too presumptuous…spot on, the food was excellent! Our waiter made some great recommendations and they had a very large and varied wine list. Dessert was also fabulous. Every... More
