“Nice Restaurant, But Not On My Top List”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

I've stayed at the W for around 4 months while staffed on a project in Doha. During my stay I've had a couple of business dinners at the "Market".

So let's start with the pros: 1. Very nice set-up; 2. Friendly and attentive staff; 3. good quality food; 4. nice food presentation; 5. nice atmosphere

Moving on to the cons: 1. Similar to the other restaurants at the W, they don't provide any booking/ entry preference to in-house guests; 2. restaurant is packed with tables to the extent that you can actually listen to conversations on nearby tables; 3. the food is of good quality, but the steak, for example, is definitely not the best I've ever had. Having been around quite a bit, I can comfortably say that the restaurant is somewhat overpriced given the quality it provides

Overall, the "Market" may be a very nice restaurant, it also may be one of the better ones in Doha, yet definitely not #1!

“Great Express Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

One of my favorites so far in Doha, delicious food with many options to choose from, great atmosphere and very good value for money

The day we visited they had a promotion called Express Lunch where we got to choose our favorite starter, main course and dessert for an amazing price

“Great food but always served late”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Tenderloin steak with the caramelized sauce is heavens on a plate. This is not one of the sauces offered for the tenderloin but i tried it once on the sirloin steak and fell for it.

Take a bite of the cheesecake and close your eyes to enjoy the taste... One of the best i tried.

The only two annoying things are that (1) the steak is served in 50 to 60 minutes but maybe because we don't come during the lunch hours. I've ordered this steak three times already and it was all around the same time from 4 to 6, (2) the music is too loud in a disturbing way.

It would be the perfect place to dine at if it wasn't for these two reasons.

Nice ambience,overpriced food compared to the quality.The risotto was the worst I had in my life.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

A fresh feeling in an elegant place. The W hotel is one of the hip boutique hotels. This joint is set up like a cozy market place yet with an upscale feel & service that compliments its menu & prices. Good selection of drinks with limited but well chosen food selection.
