“My favorite restaurant!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Our valentine's Day dinner did not disappoint! The lobster tail/steak duo was the best I have had in ages...well prepared! I love the size of the space and the European style banquette seating. A drink next door at the wine bar to start the evening and creme brulee to complete. Thank you for creating a restaurant we always enjoy!

“Excellent Seafood Linguine”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Tried this restaurant tonight. I was the first one in the restaurant, so I cannot comment on the loudness. It is a small place with a bunch of tables. I would assume that it would be loud when it was full.

I enjoyed the house salad with the mustard dressing. The salad was excellent and had olives in it. The pasta was excellent as well. The cream sauce blended with the mussels, shrimp and scallops nicely, and really enhanced the flavor.

“Quaint but a little loud”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Food was very good along with the service. Small quaint space but a little loud when filled with patrons.

“Creative menu and fresh food.”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

We returned to South Market Bistro a couple of nights during our stay in Wooster. The scallop and trout dishes were excellent, as was the house salad, but the star of the evening was tasting the Fig Cognac served either neat or as in a Fig Sidecar.

“Best restaurant in Wooster”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

They offer a daily fish special and soup. Their menu fits the seasonal foods available, the food is prepared beautifully and they offer incredible service. I eat there everytime I go to Wooster and would recommend it to anyone.
