Delicious

The food here was great and the service from our waiter was just as good ! I didn't rate it 5 stars because there was a clueless kid at the front desk who couldn't figure out how to seat our table of 5. They don't take reservations for parties under 6.

The food and service were top notch. We choose outdoor seating which made for pleasant dinning. This is a great choice for a night of fine dinning.

This was our first visit to The Goblin Market. It was recommended by an employee of another establishment in Mt. Dora and we were not disappointed! Everyone on the staff was friendly and efficient. The meals were delicious and appealing. We plan to visit again!

The Stuffed Artichoke Appetizer was excellent, very different and flavorful. Each of our sandwiches were unique and very flavorful. The restaurant itself was very interesting and nicely decorated rooms. Lots... More

We ordered the Arctic chard and caesar salad prepared perfectly. The service and atmosphere were wonderful. Although, I would recommend that red wines be stored in a cellar...ours was a tad warm. It should be stored at cellar temperature 55 degrees and we are in Florida... no room temperature for us! Nice evening, but a special treat for the price.... More

I read other reviews on Goblin Market before we went and it was everything I read and more. The food was the best in town even though pretty pricey. You really must have reservations to ensure you get in. The garden is beautiful but was too warm the day we were there so we ate inside. It really was like... More

We go to Mt. Dora each Christmas to see the lights. Going to the Goblin Market is something we always do. Make reservations early. They're always packed. The sea food is fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is wonderful, and the service is perfect.
