We sought out Market for lunch based on our past experience. The food was wonderful as has been the case in the past. One sour point was our inattentive waiter. When we were greeted and given menus we asked for some water as we made our lunch decisions. He forgot. Overhearing another waiter we found there some daily specials. We... More

I'm so glad that you decided to come back for another meal, Norbert, and that you enjoyed our food again. That said, I'm sorry that our service was less than attentive. As you know, that's not the norm here, so I appreciate the feedback. I'm sure it won't happen during your next visit, though, so I can't wait for you... More

Day trip to St. Helena, CA to pick-up some wine and decided to try a new restaurant for lunch. After reading reviews on Trip Adviser we chose to eat at Market. Started our meal with the Fried Green Tomatoes. Excellent and kicked up a notch from with a great sauce. The bread served with olive oil prior to our meal... More

We stopped in to this restaurant randomly and it was an excellent pick. If you can snag the front table for two in the window - do so! I felt like we were the only ones there. =) Great wine, and service. We ordered the crab cakes which I loved. My BF got the sesame-soy chicken salad and enjoyed it,... More

Alfie our waiter was enthusiastic and knowledgable, he gave a great tour of the menu. We had ribs, shrimp/pasta, crab Louis salad, and more but the clincher was butterscotch pudding, OMG!! You need to book ahead it got busy on a Friday night

A few days ago when my wife and I were in the Napa Valley area to celebrate our 50th anniversary, we made a reservation at Market for a special dinner. And we were amply rewarded.

We had dinner here and loved it. Our server was very attentive and the restaurant was very well organized with runners doing a great job of bringing our food out quickly, refilling our drinks, changing the cutlery between courses, etc. The food was absolutely delicious. We ordered the Ahi Two Ways, Filet Mignon, and a special of bowtie pasta and... More

We really loved it here - service of the highest order and food to match. The interior of the restaurant is lovely - high ceilings and bare stone feature walls. We started with the salmon ceviche and shrimp cocktail (both lovely) and grilled swordfish and wild king salmon for mains .....again both were excellent. Whilst both full up we wanted... More

My daughter (22) and I had lunch here and it was fabulous. We shared a market salad and fish tacos. The fish tacos were some of the best I have had and we are from Florida. It's a nice spot in St Helena and the menu offers a lot of variety. We will be back.

While ambling around St. Helena we stopped by "Market" for lunch. We found the wait staff to be quite competent and helpful. We had the soup, sandwich and treat. Both soups were good (strawberry and a chicken vegetable). The sandwich was smoked turkey on focaccia bread and was nothing special but was good. The peanut butter cookie was my favorite,... More
