Enjoyed a fine and creative seafood dinner here on the outside patio. Nice wine selection and everything was excellent including service.

“Amazing brunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Came from brunch with my sister this past Sunday and had such a great time!

There was an awesome DJ accompanied by a saxophonist and the ambience was awesome. It was raining and we opted to stay inside but the patio is awesome - one of the best in town: like something out of a European beach club and not just another boring patio.

Instead of a bread, they serve a sticky toffee bun that is out of this world. We were hungry and ate the whole thing before brunch. Had the eggs benny with perfectly cooked eggs and the cocktails were fantastic and again different from what everyone else is doing.

Will be back for sure.

“Average or above average, but certainly not great ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Choices of wines were good. Having a good range to select -- from not so expensive ones to premium ones.
Foods were so and so or just somewhat better than average. Had some nice dishes like a shrimp salad. But then very disappointing salmon tartar and beef carpaccio -- both not up to standard when you are dinning at a 5 stars hotel, at its fine dinning restaurant. Main courses were again only slightly better than average.
No wonder there were a lot of empty tables that evening.
PS. Services were good all the way -- the valet, the hostess at the reception and the gentleman who may be the restaurant manager (not sure about his job position)

“Very good all around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

After a beautiful, sunny day in Vancouver, we ended up for dinner on the terrace at Market. What a great idea. Although not much of a view (buildings are being built across the street) the location is very nice, the service very professional, and the food was great. We were also surprised and very pleased to see David Auer as their General Manager. He greeted us with a glass of Champagne and took very good care of our table. The food and drinks are priced for the location (beers $9, martinis $14). We had the tuna tartar, scallops, and prawn salad as starters. We all finished with a different "simply cooked " fish and sides. Everything was beautifully presented, well seasoned, and tasty. They also have a 3 or 5 course testing menu. Overall, a great night.

Montgomery Lau, former Senior Sous Chef at MARKET, has been promoted to Chef de Cuisine, and David Auer, former General Manager at Le Gavroche, has been named MARKET’s new Restaurant Manager.

“Small bite, ginger margarita”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Visited here on a Gourmet Food Tour and had a sample of their fare, and a very nice, but spicy ginger margarita. We didn't have the chance to return to sample the full menu, but if the samples are anything to go by, the full menu is likely to be spectacular.
