Was our first visit - wont be our last. Our host Alfie was great very friendly and informative as was the manager - everyone who worked there was friendly and inviting. The food was all very good but the crab cake, butterscotch pudding and the wine recommendations were definite stand outs.

For Napa, food was just OK. Apparently the ribs were good and the onion rings were great though! Pork chop was mediocre as were the other entrees.

Amazing. Every dish was perfect. The petrale sole - delicious. Chicken with gnocchi was cooked perfectly, along with the filet mignon. Beet salad, Pasilla soup all amazing. Do not miss this place- perfection all around ! Service was just as good. Just as good as any SF restaurant we’ve dined in, if not better.

Fried chicken, mac 'n'cheese, fish and chips, excellent burger, great onion rings ... you get the idea. This is the place to come for yummy comfort food, in a cozy restaurant with the friendliest waitstaff ever. The bar in front offers a welcome happy hour with $5 wines and small plates. Market is a local favorite.

Market is like an old friend — warm and welcoming and comfortable. The menu is oriented toward comfort food, like decadent mac ‘n cheese, and everything we’ve tried is good.
Their burger, topped with caramelized onions and nutty Fiscalini cheddar, has always been a favorite, although be sure to order medium if you’d like it medium rare, since degree of doneness is really underestimated. The burger’s fries were mediocre, but the homemade pickles were good.
Market has a friendly no-corkage policy for a bottle or two of wine brought from home.

The food was wonderful. The service was a bit spotty. No one got bread for about 20min - this was at 12:30 when everything should have been ready. Then when it came, some tables got olive oil, some butter. Our table got served after several others who came in after us. The bar service used the same wait staff and cocktails were a bit slow to make which threw the waiting time for everyone off. The wait staff were very nice and knowledgeable.

I think they sent over the bartender to wait on our table. All she told us was how great the fried chicken was so she talked us into ordering it. Now it maybe our fault because we’ve had some really good fried chicken especially in some other restaurants around Yountville and Napa but it wasn’t good enough for her to pretty much tell us we would be fools not to order it.
We heard a waiter at another table describe every thing on the menu and was really specific about the chicken being only a leg and a thigh and all dark meat. Had we known that we probably wouldn’t have ordered it. We were a little bit disappointed with this restaurant and it wasn’t only because of the fried chicken but it just seemed a little bit average in every regard. The bar looks really nice so maybe will stop in sometime and have a drink but other than that nothing to brag about.
