we went here for dinner mid-week around 9ish. the surroundings are a little spooky (as in a deserted shopping plaza reserved for yacht sales), but the restaurant itself is beautiful....everything (once you find it) from the area reserved for patio dining to the bar and restaurant itself.
they have an extensive wine list and offer mini portions of wine (i believe these were 3 ounces), which i found to be a bit odd. but part of their concept included a tasting menu, so i guess the wine is available for sampling as well.
their ceviche was fresh but a bit dry and bland for my taste, but most places dumb the flavor of their food down for american (and tourist) tastebuds. we had the petite entrees (grouper and snapper), which were both delicious. the forbidden rice was heaven on a plate. i was tempted to order a side of this alone after i tasted it...as well as another petite entree of the duck after i spied it on the table next to us.
we shared a dessert (brownies and ice cream) that was very good as well (but the ice cream seemed overly sweet). all in all, i would highly recommend market 17. the crowd was of varying ages - some people look like they had been there since happy hour, a few families, a few couples, etc.
