My boyfriend and I happen to stumble across this restaurant on the way home from a trip. We love menus that offer things different from typical hamburgers and steaks. This menu was very different and amazing. Offered lots of vegetarian and healthy choices. We would definitely try it again!

Went on a Sunday for lunch. I ordered the caprese salad, which was mostly greens and not so much tomato and mozzarella. One of the greens in the salad had a bitter taste that was very off-putting. Then I had the shrimp and grits...a dish which I normally love...but which this chef puts cilantro in, which I detest. The flavor... More

So a friend and I wanted to go to a nice dinner. We chose this one because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor, boy were they right! I will say the decor didn't match the food. What I mean, the food is a five star restaurant, the decor was a typical chain Tex-Mex restaurant. The bread plates and napkins... More

After checking a few other restaurants this one appealed to us the most. We had the salmon and veggies all very fresh. The bread was delicious right from the oven. I would definitely recommend this very peaceful restaurant. Good and quick service.

Very pleasant appearance. Staff was very friendly. We had two young children with us, family friendly and able to meet their needs. Our waitress was extremely friendly, accommodating, professional and efficient. Restaurant was great in meeting our special needs, gluten-free & dairy free. Very good dinning experience.

I love 212 Market and eat there regularly. Fresh, beautifully prepared food, much of which is local. Mother and 2 daughters own the restaurant and all 3 work there. Staff is always helpful, friendly and fast. My favorite scallops almost anywhere...99% of the times I've tried scallops, I've been disappointed. I've lived in big cities and on coasts where the...

Had lunch here on a Friday afternoon. Was quiet, and we were seated and served quickly. Lobster bisque was very good. The bison spring rolls and filet mignon were good, but not outstanding. Spinach ravioli was a little disappointing; there was way too much spinach and it was bit on the chewier side, and the pesto sauce was watery. Pricing... More

I have never been disappointed by a meal at 212. This was one of the first restaurante to open in the revitalized downtown. The dining experience was excellent when they first opened and it continues that way today, We have been there with a party of 2 and a party of 40 and they handle both well. The food choices... More

Great food, market to table. Reasonable pricing, especially after being swamped by Florida prices. Their draft beers are some of the best. Servings ample, not too much food to feel overstuffed.

We stopped here for a bite of lunch. We ordered the pork loin and it was very tough. The sweet potatoes were the best part. Nothing to write home about in our book.
