Great hotel restaurant

There aren't a lot of dining options (other than Burger King) if you are going to the Orpheum Theater but this was our 2nd trip to the Market Street Grill and it was great both times. The Whitcomb Hotel, where the Grill is located, is a beautifully restored older hotel in a somewhat sketchy... read more

The restaurants's food is delicious and they make a good Bloody Mary too. The service was very good and prices were pretty good.

Across the street from the Orpheum theater , and a parking lot next doors make for and enjoyable night in the City. Food was very good, the staff all up tempo and smiling. Service was quick and if you are going to the theater, better have a reservation for a 7:00PM dinner. We will be back !!

It's across the street from the Orpheum Theater which houses Broadway tours. Service is shoddy, food at best adequate. My advice: eat before you go to the theater.

This is the restaurant attached to the Hotel Whitcomb, probably pricey but the halibut and the salmon were amazing and the service was excellent!

Grabbed lunch here before seeing a show. Great, accommodating, efficient staff who were true to their word that they would get our order done in a timely fashion to make the show on time. Our sandwiches ( crab and chicken salad) were excellent and tasted freshly prepared. We even had time for coffee which was also very good. This place... More

The servers were rude (actually the male bartender) and the food was awful. They had hours of convenience (when they felt like being open) as the concierge told us. Expensive and not worth the time.

Poor service with a long wait, followed by cold breakfast which should have been hot. Replaced but still not value for money.

Neighborhood Profile
Civic Center
Civic Center is the seat of power for all things government and performance-related in the city. Although its streets are best walked during daytime, numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz center offer year round entertainment within the shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold tipped dome of City Hall.
