Did not have the pleasure of enjoying a nice night out at this restaurant. The service was very slow as we only saw our server 4 times. We weren’t even checked on to see how we were enjoying the food. Unfortunately neither of us were and both of us were ready to go rather than try and wait for something new. Overall, just not the best experience.

Our waiter was phenomenal!! (Can’t remember his name) Passionate about his job and he knows what he’s doing!! Food was amazing and butterscotch dessert was a hit. I will be back for sure and I’ll be sure to tell my friends.

Had high expectations but disappointed with the food which I can only describe as “gloppy”
Our Caesar salad had way too much dressing. The seasonal pasta and porcini ravioli were almost like stews with the pasta and other ingredients drowned in sauce.

The staff is very friendly and treat their guests as though you are in their home. The lunch options are too many to chose from, because the menu is so well planned; I could have picked 8 lunches. Service was perfect and we felt that we could/should have spent more for the meal and experience. Well done!!

Comfortable surroundings, excellent food, and pleasant wait staff servicing our table. Will recommend to friends for future visits to Napa Valley, and will return on our next trip.

WE absolutely love Market for its great value, quality of food, ambiance and staff. We've been there 4-5 times in the last month and our only complaint is the service. Not the wait staff themselves, but the time it takes for our food to be prepared by the kitchen. We've eaten at Market when it's often a busy time and appreciate that will slow the kitchen, but we waited almost an hour (no exaggeration) for our entrees to come out about 2 weeks ago on a Saturday for lunch. We had two 6 year old girls with us who were starving by the time lunch finally arrived. We did not even get bread for about 1/2 hour into our wait which didn't help. Thanks for listening.

You do not need to look very far in any direction to find a better culinary experience than Cook.

Mediocrity at its finest. You know it is a subpar dining experience when the salad course is the highlight of the meal.

Very good food, chopped salad was delish! Friendly service but a bit slow.
They really pack in the people. So much so that my husband had to get out of his chair and slide it in 2 times so that people could get by comfortably.

From our welcome at the front door by the owner, it was a most lovely brunch experience. The huevos rancheros and the short rib scramble were excellent choices. I will be anxious to return for a dinner experience.

A fantastic choice of comfort food in Napa, but an even greater if you are served by Alfie. He put a lot of passion as the main waiter in the restaurant floor. It has been a fantastic experience, greatly thanks to him!

Great Valentine’s dinner. Special menu surf and turf was great but I had braised short rib which was excellent. Butterscotch pudding was excellent. Noise was very manageable and waiter was excellent. Wait time for after dinner drink was too long. Thanks for making our date memorable.

We had a wonderful time at the Market. The food was delicious. We had the short ribs, fried chicken and the special, grilled swordfish. Tara, our waiter, really made the evening wonderful. The only hiccup was that the soup was only warm and not hot. Otherwise, it was a great evening. Look forward to going back.

Nice ambiance and good service. Don't get the sushi if you're expecting something to equal at lease an average sushi place. Also the "rotisserie" chicken tends to be on the underdone side, explained away as being that they use younger chickens--not so sure that rubbery, pink chicken can be attributed to the age of the animal. Stick with the basic comfort food and it will likely be OK (the meatballs were good).

Whenever we want comfort food, Market jumps to the top of the list. On a cold, rainy windy day in Napa Valley we were not disappointed. We generally go for the fried chicken or mac and cheese. This time we opted for the lamb shank [moist, well seasoned and delicious] and the baby back ribs [meat fell off the one]. Great diner, great staff, we will return.
