Fantastic place!

Went there for an anniversary dinner on a cold winters night! The food was fantastic,the service was even better. We had the place to ourselves so the service was exceptional. Great selection on the menu and the wine list. We will return again!

Just great food and service. Much larger on the inside than I expected. Servers were great, food was excellent. We'll return. Great location on Wall Street.

We had a Saturday evening dinner here. Our table was excellent, at the edge of the second floor loft, looking down on diners below. Our waiter was very thoughtful and attentive. They have a full bar and a pretty good wine selection. Very nice ambience and excellent service. We wish that the food had been better. My wife had the... More

First, the caveat--I normally eat 1200 calories a day, mostly raw veggies, fruit, and lean protein, but it was anniversary weekend and I was ready to splurge! The pleasant experience started with an online reservation where we left a request for a quiet table for our celebration. Arriving at 6:00 was perfect for making a 7:30 show, and we liked... More

Chef William and his staff created a memorable evening full of truffle dishes my French dining companion and I declared to be delicious. The service was impeccable. Too bad fresh truffles only arrive in winter so we have to wait too long for a repeat performance. However, I will return as soon as possible for other menu favorites. I highly... More

Found this based on reviews and availability for V-Day. The menu was excellent and the quality of the food was great and inventive. The waiter assured me that he was alerting the chef to my gluten-intolerance, but I think something might've slipped through - it wasn't tragic, but annoying. The only part that WAS tragic is that the hostess acted... More

Absolutely, to die for! My husband and I shared the Mac & Cheese Small Plate AND WISHED WE'D ORDERED ONE FOR EACH OF US! Next time we'll do that. We ordered the Trout and the Quail as entrees and shared those, too. We really liked both. My husband liked the Apple Tart dessert but I didn't.

Let me say first off that I am not one to complain just to complain. The following is very truthful and fair based on our experience. PLEASE read full review. My girlfriend and I had dinner at this restaurant Saturday, January 24th 2015. Leonardo was our server. The atmosphere was very trendy. Music in the background which was perfect volume.... More

This restaurant will definitely serve up something different and interesting. We ate here for both dinner one night and then brunch the next day. Reservations are highly recommended. We made reservations for dinner the day of and couldn't get in until 8:45 pm. The menu is very interesting. I enjoyed a vegan dish of curried cauliflower with black quinoa and... More

The Market Place is not the usual "Let's go grab a bite 'cause it's easier than cooking" restaurant. It's geared to foodies who appreciate an inventive, locally-sourced menu with meals that are carefully prepared and beautifully plated. Our server, Andrea, was the perfect mix of friendly and helpful without being intrusive. She definitely added to our enjoyment of the evening.... More
