We love Dandelion Market!! The bar tenders were talkative and friendly, and offered their recommendations for drinks and food. The Kansas City-style ribs were delicious. We also ordered the stuffed poblano pepper (my husband raved about it, but I didn't even get a bite - so it must have been outstanding!!), and the Brussells sprouts (we've had them before)...great as...

We've been here several times. It is a small plate type of place, so order several options and share with the table. Love the shrimp and grits (grits cake) and the green beans. The menu has lots of options too. The service is good and the staff circulates to clear plates often, so your table doesn't get loaded down with... More

After hearing great things about this restaurant, we made a reservation for a group of 8. We had a great time! Our group ordered quite a few things off the menu and loved almost everything with the exception of the bland potato croquettes and overly salty chips. We LOVED the green beans! The waitress was phenomenal and found that the... More

My wife and I recently went to the Dandelion Market not really knowing what to expect. Turns out it was spectacular. We were very impressed with three of the four things we tried. The baked potato croquettes left a little to be desired. As for the red pepper artichoke dip, crab cakes and the grilled lamb lollipops, we were left... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by a passerby who raved about it while we looked at the menu in the window. We sat at the bar and our waitress attended us right away. We had a Malbec and a local beer. We then asked for the Bruschetta with shrimp, one shrimp on the bread, four pieces of bread for... More

Absolutely love all the tapas options here. This has always been a group of girls favorite spot for wine and gossip. Always have to get an order of the prosciutto crostinis. Best cheese board in uptown!

I really enjoyed my meal at Dandelion Market! I was here with my family for Brunch, and we had a great time! The setting is intimate and cozy, while the servers were very friendly! We sat in a booth in the corner of the restaurant, which made us feel both comfortable and relaxed! The food was delicious! I had the... More

I have been here several times and have always struggled to see the menu due to the darkness, many times having to pull out my smart phone flashlight to even see. This is mainly a Tapas menu and does have interesting offerings. The Black Bean sliders were pretty good but nothing else was memorable. The menu is pretty pricey as... More

Waited 30 minutes for a table. Which was advertised on the main level. One of the people in our party could not do the long flight of steps. There were tables available the while time but they were reserved. The hostess seemed delighted when we left - clearly uninterested Never got to the food - drink. Oh well
