Highly recommended! Loved the blackened tuna tumble, special of the day and awesome salad with crab and another salad with an Asian twist with chicken.

This is a very comfortable, casual restaurant with a nice menu. It is located downtown St Helena among the shops and other restaurants. The service was friendly and efficient. I started my meal with the watermelon salad which also included some chopped up heirloom tomatoes. It was both refreshing and tasty plus was a pretty big bowl (my wife helped... More

Very good restaurant in the quaint town of St. Helena on the main block thru town. Had the Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes. Desert was a mixed fruit short cake. Would recommend the Market.

Sunday Brunch was underway but limited menu items were still available. Service was slow but the air conditioning made the wait OK. I was surprised the iced tea was not home brewed.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here. We had a great meal and one of the best servers I have had. First, if you are looking for a quiet place for dinner this is not the place for you. It is noisy and vibrant and the menu has a split personality. One of the evening specials was Manila Clams... More

We had great expectations for Market but were not impressed. We were told Emeril Lagasse had eaten there with three of his sous chefs and came back every night he was in St. Helena. So we were expecting awesome food but sadly, came away wondering what the big deal was. I had their "famous" Mac & Cheese which was very... More

While I'm glad that there were highlights of your meal, Karen, like the calamari with peppers and the burger, I'm of course disappointed that you didn't enjoy all of your dishes. What's more, I'm sorry if you felt service was a tad rushed when you were here -- that really isn't the norm. We're known for attentive and friendly service,... More

We have been coming to the Napa Valley for years and Market continues to demonstrate why they have out lived so many other establishments (sorry Cindy). Consistently outstanding food and service with a menu of fan favorites (the butterscotch pudding is a must). Their wine list is extensive including many small local wineries. When ever we come to St Helena... More

We must have hit this place on an off day. The fish and chips batter was not cooked completely. The chicken, which was supposed to be grilled, was greasy fried. On a more positive note, the salmon chowder was good. We started service at the end of the lunch hour and then it rolled over into dinner at higher prices... More

This is obviously disappointing, Russell, and I'm really sorry if there was an issue with the fish and chips batter and the chicken.

Stopped for lunch here as it had great reviews. We are happy to say that the reviews were well warranted. The service was attentive and the meals were delicious. One of us had the soft fish tacos and the other had the hamburger. The hamburger was juicy with grilled onions and great French fries, and the tacos were quite tasty... More

Description
Market Restaurant offers an elegant yet comfortable dining experience. Located on Main Street in St. Helena, the historical building features exposed stone walls and an antique bar dating back to the turn of the century. The menu features American classics with a fresh seasonal approach and the wine list offers a diverse selection of wines to complement Chef's creations, with an emphasis on wines from local Napa Valley vintners. In addition to a locally inspired and reasonably priced wine list, Market never charges corkage.
