Catered to all my food allergies. Many entrée choices which the kitchen skillfully modified for my exclusions.

Being from south Louisiana, I'm no stranger to really, really good food. I've been to what I believe to be some of the best restaurants in the U.S. (If not the world) and I'm telling you, South Market Bistro can stand proud among them. Fantastic, friendly, un-pretentious service, a great wine list and creative dishes make this place one that... More

A really wonderful menu! Salad was lightly dressed, not drenched in dressing. I recommend the roasted garlic and artichoke toast points. Ordered the risotto with the canard confit. Not something you see here too often, but the only way I like duck. This was delicious. I even splurged on blueberry/blackberry crisp and was glad I did!

Ignore the linked menu. The new Owner/Executive Chef has created a wonderful bistros with imaginative dishes at affordable prices. Try the goat salad with any appetizer or entree. Everything is top notch local food that works well as an ensemble.

With one vegan, one vegetarian and one meat and potatoes guy finding good optinos are limiting. South Market Bistro rocked it!

We sat at the bar for cocktails and appetizers. We wish we had stayed for dinner. The kitchen was buzzing. The aroma of duck noodle soup was intoxicating. The zucchini and ricotta "fritter" was excellent. We had dinner reservations across the street and had an awful meal. Next time we will spend our time and money at the South Market... More

This is our fifth visit to SMB. We've dined under two different owners. We'll go back again and again. Three of the four of us chose from the fish selections: tuna done to a rare perfection and the most succulent scallops I've probably ever had. The fourth diner had a pork dish with samples of pork prepared different ways with... More

We've dined in many major cities at very nice establishments. We happened upon this quaint little restaurant when making a brief visit to Wooster. Food, service, and wine pairing were exceptional! Plan on another trip soon, just for dinner.

They have a limited menu, but what they cook they do very well. Nice atmosphere but a little noisy. The owner is the chef so a great deal of pride goes into the food.
