Good spot for a drink since the bar tender here has a wonderfully generous hand with his pours. They pour my current second favorite bourbon, Basel Hayden’s and the appetizers, especially the calamari, were delicious. I liked the glass of Sauvignon Blanc that I go with my Grouper which was also good. The risotto side was a bit of a... More

My husband and I have been here a few times and only one time did I think it was soso. This time we went for an early valentine's day dinner. We both ordered a drink, my husband a solo and coke and I had a sangria. The sangria was really good, just fruity enough with a nice juice, alcohol ratio.... More

Wonderful experience for a couple's night out. Great appetizers and scallops. The meals are pricey and I really wouldn't take kids.

The cocktails are excellent and you can't beat the view of the Hartford skyline and surrounding area. They have a modern fire pit outside for colder weather if you want to sit outside. The main meals are not that great but the cheese plate and other appetizers are pretty good. Nice spot to unwind on a Friday after work.

Market Grille is situated on a hillside with a commanding view across the Connecticut River Valley that is especially impressive at sunset. Most recently, we visited them on a Saturday night to celebrate two birthdays. Predictably, there was a delay in being seated (not MG's fault, the group at our intended table chose to linger and converse after settling up... More

Have been here a number of times and have never had a bad meal here, but find the price isn't really worth anything on the menu. The same person owns this restaurant as Mill on the River and the food is much better there although the prices are not that much different. I only will go here if my family... More

I frequent this restaurant for business lunches for it's atmosphere and menu. I've probably been here 50 times. The food is consistently excellent and the service is typically attentive and good. A couple great dishes... Helmar's salad, and for a couple dollars more, get it topped with Asian glazed salmon, and the best ever... eggplant parm. It's the most perfectly... More

We have been to Market Grille several times and have always had a good meal. Problem with this place is it's close to Buckland Mall and it attracts a LOT of people and it's almost always mobbed so that takes away from the experience for me. I don't mind people but loud noisy mobbed restaurant when your meeting friends for... More

Alone. In a strange city. Looking for a place to get a decent meal. Found this gem not far from the hotel. Good menus for both food and bar. Started out with a bowl of their New England clam chowder. Nice and thick, flavorful and very tender clams. Then chose the Idaho Trout with pumpkin seed and panko topping. Served... More

The Market Grille is a wonderful spot to celebrate a special occasion or simply the logical place to go if you want excellent food and service topped off by pleasing surroundings. This restaurant is definitely a cut above the cookie cutter chains that are abundant in Manchester plus it has a really nice vantage point. We watched a pretty impressive... More
