Reviewed June 24, 2014

Our server was friendly and fantastic- providing great recos. The food was quite good, and the hazelnut chocolate marscapone mousse was delish- do yourself a favor and order it!

“Unique downtown gem”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

Our first time at Marketplace was terrific. Food was excellent and service very good. Chef Dallas makes the most amazing Brussel sprouts and we highly recommend them. The combined flavor of the cherries and almonds with the sprouts was unique. Also loved the lamb bolognese on polenta. We will be back when the weather is good and enjoy dinner on the lovely patio. It was a 5* experience for us.

“Great location and food.”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Stopped at the Marketplace before a concert at the Palace. Very interesting decor. Choice of seating inside or out. Service was great. Very friendly staff. Wonderful food. We choose to eat light . Lamb meatballs were awesome. Flatbreads very yummy. Would definitely go back when we are in town.

“Hits and Misses”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

The inside is very dark, but, luckily, it was a pleasant temperature outside and a table in the back near the fountain was very pleasant. As mentioned in ither posts, the goat cheese and crostini appetizer is delicious and will suffice for four people. Diners in our party also liked the spinach salad and scallops. A few dishes didn't quite hit the mark in terms of seasoning and flavor combinations: Brussels sprouts, short ribs, and shrimp and "grits." Overall, it was a pleasurable experience.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Stopped by here for a dinner meeting using a reservation through Opentable. We were not disappointed. The wine list is limited, but the by the glass selections are my preference. We started with some wine and the feta olive tray and truffle fries. The truffle fries are as good as some reviewers have written about. A must try! Three of us had salmon and one had scallops. The servings were well portioned and cooked perfectly. To finish, we asked the server to prepare a selection of desserts for the table. I have read the cheese cake is to die for, and I agree, but the other desserts were just fantastic. We sampled the chocolate mascarpone, chocolate tort, and bourbon bread pudding. I must say, the bread pudding was my favorite. I would have never ordered this but so glad I was able to try.

Also of note, I ordered the incorrect wine when I started. I recognized it upon service and our server took it back, no questions asked. I was really impressed with the level of service and quality of food here. I solid recommendation to anyone who reads this.
