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!

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

This place has a cool, unique environment. We sat upstairs which was dim lighting, brick walls & very open. The ahi tuna & lamb lollipops were both excellent. The trio dip was just okay, wouldn't order it again. The mac & cheese was pretty good. They need salt & pepper shakers on tables. Mac & cheese definitely needed seasoned. Overall,... More

Depending on when you visit the Dandelion Market your experience will vary quite dramatically. Exposed brick walls, wood floors and multiple beers on tap create an atmosphere downstairs much like an English pub. Upstairs is overflow restaurant seating that becomes a nightclub after 9PM catering to the 20-somethings. The menu is tapas style, but the portions are large. The crowd... More

My husband and I stopped by on Mothers Day. We were delighted with the food and service. He had a vegetable omelet and I had quiche. Wonderful biscuits with jam to start. Yummy! Our food was perfect and very fresh. We will be back!
