We have traveled to Asheville many times and always enjoyed the wonderful restaurants the city has to offer. This time we were traveling with friends who picked the Market Place for the menu. Wow! I was blown away by the wonderful service of our waitress, Denise. Professional, very knowledgeable of the preparation of every dish and fun to engage with.... More

We sat there and talked about the food the whole time we were there for lunch. It was so good. A must go if you like really good tasting but healthy food. I thought the prices were reasonable also and the place was very classy dark wood everywhere.

Beautifully prepared food for a table of 4. The steak was cooked exactly as ordered, as were the seafood dishes. Waitress a little slow as she had little help for too many tables. Really appreciate being able yo bring our own wine for a reasonable $12 corkage fee. Highly recommend

My BF and I were wandering around after having dinner at another place and stumbled upon this place when we heard wonderful music coming from inside so we stopped in. Originally sat along the wall but moved to the bar for after-dinner drinks and dessert. Service was very nice and bartenders were friendly. We ordered an amazing Crème Brule dessert... More

The Market Place was perhaps the first to bring fine dining regional based cuisine to asheville. In its new iteration under new ownership and after a false start, it has firmly re established itself as an upper echelon restaurant in a city with no lack of great dining. The inventiveness of the menu professional service and tweets to the dining... More

Great location with outdoor seating for people watching. Food so-so---service horrible! We were told 3 times---by 3 different people---our food was being plated...30 minutes later we finally saw our food. Then to top it off, I asked for a side of mayo---and was given butter!!!
