“Nice place, average food, poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The atmosphere is nice, the food average, and the service poor. The artichoke and spinach dip was good even with the store bought chips. The California cheeseburger I ordered was good but undercooked. Although I came here with great expectations, I was completely underwhelmed with the poor service.

“Best burger”

Neat. clean, homey, but sophisticated. Families with young children were as comfortable as the well dressed patron. Nice selection of food. Wait staff very attentative. Would go back in a second

“Awesome Food - for anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

This is one of those places where you feel great just being in the place as it is small enough to be intimate without be uncomfortable.

The menu is wide and modeled after classic New York cuisine. Our group had steaks and fish. I had a french dip that was one of the best I have ever had.

Additionally, they have a good bar and surprisingly good wine list. I will be back for sure.

“Consistently good food, service lacks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

The food here is consistently good, but never great, as is the same with drinks. Service could be a lot better and I with the brunch menu had more to offer.
Still one the of the better places on Calle Uruguay, but nothing you absolutely have to experience.

“New Location, Same Great Food, Service, Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Market moved about 2 blocks away from its original location because they're building a highrise there. The new location has the same great food, steaks/american, friendly, attentive service and chic atmosphere as the original. There are many new copycats that are hard to get into, but this is the original and there's always a table.
