A family member had his rehearsal dinner here this weekend and it was great. The food was AMAZING. There were 45 of us and every person said that their food was amazing. We had 3 things to pick from and they were all great. The service was excellent was well. I will go bak again and again.

“Very pleased overall”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Excellent Service, food, and value. Nice décor. Like many places like this however, apparently the Chef is a bit pretentions, preferring not to pair certain items upon request. Who's more important here, the chef, or me? I'm just the customer, I guess.

That said, everything else met or exceeded our expectations. We have reservations to return on New Year's eve.

“Great Start to our Asheville Foodie Vacation!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

It was our first night in Asheville. Happily, we picked the Market Place for dinner. We went on a Wednesday evening, thankfully, because it was Half Off Glasses of Wine night! I think they offered some kind of fun special each night. ,and some nights had live music. We sampled many of their tapas-style menu items. All were good, including the complimentary bread and olive oil, edamame (if you like soy- my husband does; I don't), some kind of deep fried cheese ball that was an evening special, the seared tuna (my husband's favorite!), and the sweet pea and goat cheese ravioli (my favorite!) . The prices were affordable enough to get a couple items each. They focus on farm to table and even had a large chalkboard listing the many local farms they are sourcing from. At one point, the chef came out and showed a few tables who were interested the freshly harvested mushrooms he was preparing that night. It was very cool and informative. We also sampled greatly from their wine list- at bargain prices! They even included sparkling and dessert wines in the special, whereas many restaurants exclude them. It was nice to sample some delicious known wines (Molly Dooker) and some unknown local ones. Our waiter was super friendly, offering to take pictures of us and telling us the history of the restaurant. We ate in the dining room, but it looks like they have a very active bar and outside patio, too. Blink and you'll miss their street, but it is definitely worth searching for. When we return to Asheville, we will absolutely reserve the Market Place before any other!
