. There is so much like about The Market, even if from time to time forgiveness may be called for. My wife and I have dined there almost weekly for many years. Like some other reviewers, we, too, have dined at some of the finest...in the US and Europe. . It’s worth noting that two different experiences are possible, maybe more. The bar is definitely casual and welcoming to all. I like it because that’s where the action is, TV’s and all. Through an inside door is a quiet dining room with white table clothes, more intimate and perhaps more relaxing, a place you might want to linger. Same food, same prices, same service. . Karen, the owner, prepares some great food, using the best ingredients she can get. There are many items that are dependably good. Her chicken offerings begin with organic chicken and never disappoint. Her homemade soups are always outstanding. Italian offerings are dependably excellent. She takes personal pride in every aspect of the restaurant. . We sometimes stop at The Market on the way home from a party or even after dining somewhere else. She has an array of deserts broader than anywhere in area. . Regrettably for regulars like us, they get slammed sometimes, and we’ve had to leave for another place, but we know that they are doing their level best, and the big party jamming things will not leave disappointed. Market staff do the most and the best they can in all circumstances. . We go back and back again because we enjoy the whole dining experience, and I highly recommend that you try it and judge for yourself. My wife and I enjoy Michelin-starred food and service, but we never tire of The Market. Located on the south edge of town, it’s worth the time and effort to find. . Dr. Scott says: Check this one out.More

The Market is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant, casual or fine dining. The menu is fantastic! The appetizer tuna dip is delicious!

Not a crawfish fan but we do really like fresh shrimp, they were cooking them up fresh and a one pound basket was all the two of us could eat (well and still have one of the desserts...which are really good here).

First time we visited a month or so a go very good. This time average to poor. Grilled Caesar the highlight of the meal Downhill from there. My ribeye was overdone my potatoes, mashed were cold. Told waiter but never heard another word about it...from the kitchen. Wife’s snapper, average, service indecisive. I’d give it another chance but for tonight, very disappointing after a previously enjoyable meal. Got to get their consistency down to be a good or great dining option.More

The Market Restaurant is a locals’ favorite......a slightly funky place with good food giving the diner more taste than expected. Separate casual and upscale dining rooms with separate menus, but locally famous for crawfish dinners ( in season). But my favorite is the boiled shrimp...dinner.... a mound of large shrimp cooked in Cajun spices with corn, red potatoes, and baked onion , wow!! .... what flavor! Full bar and wine list. Owner chef prepares wonderful desserts..... all this food at fair prices! Far south side of Shreveport off Southern Loop , about a mile west of I-49 in thriving restaurant area near Southern Trace CC. More than worth the short drive! Most taste for the $ in Shreveport!!More

The Market Restaurant has been open for quite some time, but this was our first visit. Nothing special about the atmosphere. The lack of parking could be a problem at busy time. Service was friendly and fast. All 4 in our party ordered different entrees...and all were pleased with our choices. There are 2 menus with lots of options. We'll return.More

It was hard to tell if the restaurant was open or not. If there had not been one table occupied, we would have left. They need more staff. Only one person handling the whole restaurant & if he is off getting change in another part...of the hotel or in the kitchen placing orders, no one is there. Food was good but slow in coming out although at this time we were the only customers there.More

Ordered fish which tasted like it was just taken out of a deep freezer after being placed with rotten food for a year. It's expensive, but i couldn't even finish it because it was so bad. It arrived doused with some type of sauce which...didn't help hide the taste. I was stunned because I had heard such good things about this place, and it is close by to me. One of the worst meals I've ever had. What a waste of money, wow.More

My best friend let me tag along to her business meeting and we ended up having lunch in the hotel of her conference. The choices were limited but i was ok with that....my burger was great! I ordered medium rare and the juices were flowing...and the burger was seasoned just right. It was bigger than the average burger but not too big that it couldn't be finished in one sitting. The wait staff was very cordial and prompt.More
