Very creative menu

This place was really good. I'm sitting here on the patio with perfect weather, having a drink I've never heard of, finishing a dish I have never heard of. Everything in the menu, both drinks and food, was very creative. Very cool place to eat.

First off, this is a very contemporary but cozy restaurant. My husband and I were seated in a very comfortable booth in the middle of the restaurant. Love the atmosphere, and it wasn't noisy. Justin was our waiter and he was professional, friendly and offered up some great suggestions on menu items and wine. Loved his wine choice for us.... More

This was our second visit to The Market Place. Our dinner was even better than our first visit. We shared the trout and the cauliflower with curry. Both were terrific. The service was excellent but not rushed. On this visit we are inside. The ambience was pleasant although we enjoyed the informality of the patio in front if n our... More

A large group of friends ate here one night while visiting Asheville! The atmosphere is very nice and the food was very good! Very fresh! We got many of the small plates and shared and to me the small plate portions are enough! The Mac and cheese is very filling and oh so very delicious, a must to get when... More

Sat out on the patio on a Saturday night. Had a table of 4 plus our puppies. Waitress was great and the food was awesome. They had live music playing inside that was piped out through speakers to the patio also. Give them a try if you haven't!

Everything about this restaurant is first class. The servers are extremely knowledgeable about the ingredients and preparation of each item. They always do everything that we ask when it comes to modifying for particular palates. The ambience is romantic. Parking is the only obstacle if the town is busy.

Introduced to this restaurant by friends who were already very familiar with the place (they even know much of the staff by name!), but his was my first experience. The reception desk seemed to be a bit confused. While my friends had a reservation and had requested a particular table, the hostess either misinterpreted the request, gave the table to... More

Our 2nd visit (first was this time last year). Brunch both times, consistently excellent. Banana bread french toast and scrambled eggs with smoked trout and goat cheese are topnotch. Not huge plates, good if you actually ate an early breakfast. Good beer selection and cool cocktails like Pimms. Sidewalk seating is nicely edged with planters, privacy but you can still... More

We ducked into this little restaurant to have a drink while it rained and decided to stay for dinner! Farm to fresh, quiet setting, knowledgeable servers, and great cocktails! We'll definitely be back!

Visiting our son in Asheville and wanted to treat him a bit. We were ALL treated! We started with the mussels and charcuterie. I must say, I have had mussels around the world and these were, by far the best! Tiny.....but exceptionally tener....AND THE SAUCE!! Then the entrees.....trout, red snapper and the pork shoulder. Each one was outstanding. The chefs... More
