“Almost there!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

This was our first visit and overall we had a good time, we did wait a long time from being seated to having the waitress come over, in fact I the manager or owner came over to ask if the waitress had served us yet, we said no and she was over in a shot. we ordered a starter and an entrée, the entrée arrived first, I asked what happened to the starters, the waitress simply said she had arranged for someone else to bring them, then brought them over, no real apology. The food was very good, the desert portions were very big, they had great live music which made a huge difference, overall I want this place to succeed, I think we just got a new or poor server. we will try this place again in the hope the service improves if it does it will be our regular, even though its a 30 minute drive.

“Stumbled across a gem ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

I was just passing through town and stumbled upon this place. What a gem. The decor has a very nice rustic feel, the staff was impressingly attentive an the food was fantastic. I had the grilled chicken salad and chicken and dumpling soup. Food was fantastic. Highly recommended.

“What a great surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We wanted to take our sister out for brunch after church. She suggested City Market where she had once had lunch. Great first impression outside and in emanated from this historic building. Owners are new at being restauranteurs but have achieved the best ingredients to success with a great chef and interesting atmosphere. Abundance of beautiful fresh fruit accompanied all of our entrees. Mascarpone stuffed French toast was scrumptious and so large that half was taken home. The ahi tuna was perfect according to my sister. We appreciated personal attention from the friendly owner. Can't wait to return for another visit. . .

“Great new restaurant in Dade City, FL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

My wife and I recently had lunch at City Market Bistro, a new restaurant in Dade City, FL. We ordered one of their hand made, hand tossed pizzas. It was excellent and rivaled any pizza we have had including the best New York pizzas. The service was very attentive and friendly. The menus, both lunch and dinner offer a variety of meal selections freshly prepared with quality ingredients by a professional chef. Do not miss this restaurant. We will certainly be eating at City Market Bistro again in the future.
