Great Atmosphere !

This was the 2nd time we've been to Goblin Market. Did not make a reservation, prefer to sit upstairs in the bar. It was quite full but we hit it just right and arrived when 2 large parties were leaving. Settled in on a lovely couch. The bartender/server was a bit frantic but took our order... read more

Restaurant is way way overhyped. Food was mediocre. We had the chicken and salmon but it was overcooked and dry. The waiter was not very attentive. For $100 without drinks for two people I would have expected better food and service

Great food and atmosphere. Friendly people, small but romantic yet social environment Met some great new people. Wait staff is very attentive and so nice. The food was great. Expensive but worth it.

This was the second time I've been to the Goblin Market. The first time was during one of the yearly craft fairs that are held in Mt Dora. The food was great and the service was wonderful for a lunch meal during a very busy day in Mt Dora. I was determined to return for dinner during a less busy... More

Excellent service and food -- we go out of our way to come here! Onion soup is excellent and the burgers and salads are all good ... the MUSTS are the Onion soup and the Creme Brulee! Served in a relaxing library room (ground level) with another floor upstairs. A bit pricey but so worth it! My only heads up... More

This restaurant gets everything right. Gorgeous decor, completely reasonable prices, and delish food. I had the smoked cheddar bacon cheeseburger with sweet onion relish and it is making my mouth water thinking about it right now. My friend had the cashew crusted chicken sandwich and it was not only HUGE but envy worthy. Our server was conscientious and polite and... More

The charm in the name and the charm of the location can't be beat, however, the prices are very, very, very, steep which prohibited me from trying an appetizer and a dessert, which was a bummer because they might've been good. I just can't see spending $60 or more for lunch for two people which is what an appetizer or... More

We stopped in for lunch on our first day visiting Mt. Dora for a late lunch. It is located down an alley way with a pretty Florida patio landscaped entrance. Look for the sign hanging outside. Lunch menu prices looked reasonable but dinner prices seemed ridiculous outside of the lighter dinner menu being advertised. Summer traffic probably pretty slow prompted... More

A fabulous dinner, great service and all around wonderful experience. I intended to eat somewhere else, didn't get waited on and walked over to the Green Goblin. My gain in being able to have such wonderful food. I am so glad that is how the night played out and look forward to going back again.

Went for lunch. We had salads and turkey sandwiches. The place is very unique. You feel that you are in a library. We would have returned for dinner but did not have the time.
