Trying to find an experience similar to a hip-hop brunch we had in BC - this was pretty good, but the menu was limited, not including the feature offerings on the hip-hop brunch menu shown online. Music-wise the hip-hop was old-school meaning from the last 15 years, which wasn’t what I was looking for… But it might suit others. Very pretty inside, food was good.

During the time of COVID and for that matter at any other time, The Market has been a place to go and have a comfort meal in a pleasant environment. The menu is not extensive, yet all items are superbly prepared and presented. Enjoy the ambience as you savour the food and wine.

Amazing service! Food was so great, had the brussel sprouts, gnocchi, and caprese salad. There was so much flavour and they accommodated my dietary restrictions so well! Loved the ambiance of the patio. Definitely will be back and will recommend to all my friends!

I was disappointed with one of our meals. The fried chicken sandwich was awful. There was so little chicken and a lot of batter. Very hard and unable to eat. The waitress did not see to understand the problem. And just brought a second meal the same. I have enough er before had a bad meal there so was very disappointed. This was a birthday celebration and it was the birthday person who could not eat her meal.

I had the Waygu burger and it was one of the most delicious burgers I’ve ever had. Delicious flavour, and not too salty, even with the bacon and cheese included, on a buttery brioche. Would definitely order again.

We love this place and have been coming here since our first date. They did a great job with spreading people out for physical distancing without killing the vibe. Clean as always and the food and drinks were delicious! Side note: I'm gluten and dairy free and they always do a great job of understanding how to handle an allergy and making substitutions that don't compromise the dish. I usually just pick a dish, tell them my dietary restrictions and let the chef work his magic in whatever way he thinks is best. Jen and Adrian

Ate dinner at Market on June 11, 2020. The restaurant is clearly taking COVID seriously, with well spread out tables. We had the pork belly and prawns to share as an appetizer, then I had the tomahawk pork and my date had the steak. The pork belly and prawns were delicious, and the tomahawk pork was outstanding in taste and presentation.

The steak was in fairly thin strips that were cooked a bit more than the medium rare that was ordered, but was still tasty. My date has celiac disease (gluten free), and the waiter was knowledgeable about what modifications needed to be made for each dish. In general the menu was very gluten-friendly.

One thing to note is that the current menu is a condensed version of the menu posted on OpenTable, and some of the dishes are modified (different sides etc.).

This is one of our favourite date spots. Our two favourite dishes were no longer on the menu so we decided to go for the Arctic Char. Usually the food here is 5 stars however this time sat at about a 2. Dish lacked flavour, was fishy and watery. We had to ask for salt, which we never do. We were reluctant to pay $30 for our mains.. never like paying that much for a meal that isn’t fantastic. Our server was great and the wine was great. We definitely won’t order the fish ever again. But we love the atmosphere so we will be back.

Husband and I reserved a table here for our first date night out since covid 19. Good service. Pork tomahawk was a hit. I got a wrap with a side salad and would have loved a much bigger serving for the salad which came in a condiment cup. Cute place. Good food.

Was excited to try Markets YYC food experience. Made a reservation for Sunday evening. Was not made aware they were out of the yyc experience until after we sat down. Tried to order the sunday dinner but that was not available since they were doing the yyc experience. Felt obligated to stay. Would have been nice to get some heads up or told by the host as other tables were asking about the same thing. Our server was pleasant and what we ordered was good as well. Had the pork tomahawk. Overall would recommend.

Food was tasty but some items were delivered luke warm. Most of us were there to try the three course fixed price menu but it seemed overly restrictive that all 6 people at the table had to order it. A little more flexibility would have been appreciated. Good craft beer selection.
