My very favorite restaurant in all of San Diego. We try to go about once a month, and are never disappointed. Food is fresh and seasonal, but some favorites remain. The amuse bouche is always creative and it is hard to get enough of their little corn muffins. Wait staff friendly and informative. Can't wait to go back!

We dined at Market on Monday evening and sat at the bar. We had a few minor order issues but the attentiveness of the staff was so high class the issues were null. Once in awhile issues happen. It's how these issues are handled is what's important. I would HIGHLY recommend Market and will definitely return. Keep up the good... More

Went here in mid January during Restaurant Week so the menu was abbreviated. That being said, the food and service was excellent. Market was recommended by our hotel and I'm glad they did! A little congested upon entering the restaurant as that space is also near the bar, but once in the restaurant there was nice spacing between the tables... More

The Market deserves its excellent reputation for creative food utilizing fresh and generally locally sourced ingredients. Our food was creative and tasty preceded by a nice amuse-bouche. The service was fine and the noise level moderate although the restaurant was not completely full. Wine prices are at the usual egregious restaurant levels with very few truly moderately priced bottles and... More

By far the best restaurant in San Diego. Every visit is exceptional and never disappoints. Great place to impress. The short rib is ridiculous!

We've been there twice in 2 months and it is such a special treat. Most recently we brought a good friend who was visiting from out of town. Their short ribs are delicious and what they are known for. Expensive but worth it.

Twice in three nights. I only wish we lived closer, we would be here once a week. The first night our waiter was Randy and second night was Taylor. But I have to give big kudos to Shane the General Manager. He is amazingly professional. From the moment that I called about a reservation he listened and heard and responded... More

It disturbs me wham I spend my time and fiscal resources to visit a restaurant and review it online when the review disappears. I'LL DO IT AGAIN, as this place is that good. I have visited this restaurant twice. I'm a Farmer and trying always to find new clients to buy my produce. This place wasn't keen on my solicitation,... More

I came here with a business colleague for dinner after a meeting. Great service and good food. We ordered the Pacific sushi roll which was OK. The mushroom fettuccine pasta dish however was superb. Nice ambience and sort of uppity crowd. Busy however even on a Monday night. That must mean something.
