MARKET is inspired by market cuisine, local, fresh, seasonal ingredients with regional influences. At MARKET we start by homemaking a majority of our ingredients from baking bread, curing meats, cheese making, and even growing our own greens, herbs and vegetables.
We’ve been here a few times and it’s always been fun. But this time was definitely a new one for hospitality experience. I just left the patio after spending a couple hours enjoying the afternoon. Our bill was $37 and change. My boyfriend paid with a $50 bill and was waiting for change. We realized that after 15 minutes he didn’t return so Dave approached him in the restaurant. He claimed he asked if we wanted change and Dave said that he didn’t hear anything on the patio. Sitting right on 17th Ave, it’s easy to miss what people say, especially with all the loud mufflers of the cars cruising about. Even still, you should never ask but assume your customers want their change. Your server immediately assumed an attitude and said that your restaurant doesn’t give change. How can he say that when he said he asked if we needed change but now that we do, it’s restaurant policy to jot give change. Is this for real?! What restaurant policy is this?! Your server, who appears to be Hispanic(?) male, then proceeded to tell us we are sooooo lucky he even accepted our cash and we should be so grateful because no other restaurant on 17th accepts cashier. AND then told us to get out and get over ourselves. To. Get. Over. Ourselves. I have never been shouted at by a restaurant server. I myself have been a server/bartender for 6 years while attending university. Never have I ever, shouted at patrons, even the most drunk and belligerent ones. And this server is upset we dared to ask for change. How could he be so entitled and assumed he would get $50 on $37. Had he brought change, we would have taken $5 and left the rest which is a sufficient 20% tip. But we obviously didn’t after he gave us such terrible attitude. Never have I ever experienced such atrocious attitude from a server. I am so embarrassed for you to employ this staff member. Clearly we will not be back.
Sister came from Vancouver to visit me. Yes I was excited and I did some homework on where to bring her for dinner etc. So I googled and found Market Calgary. Food rating very high and I have to say I was not lied to. I came here on Thanksgiving Sunday (No turkey for me). To my surprise not too many people (because everyone having turkey at home). I made a reservation on the day and usually you need at least couple days in advance. So we walked in and the whole night there were only 3 tables. Our server told us that their brussels spout are really popular here. I read the menu carefully and at the very far bottom corner right. There is a dinner platter chef special for 2 for $55. I had to ask what that was. I was told it was beef tenderloin with mashpotatoes, comes with a salad and brussel spout. I thought I heard it wrong. Too good to be true. So I asked if its Alberta beef. Server said yes. OMG….. This is such a good deal. I was amazed. Well I wanted my sister to have Alberta beef in cow town. Yes I got that. The platter came with 2 piece beef tenderloin. It was delicious. Mash potatoes very buttery and fluffy nice. The brussel spouts were amazing. They were super delicious. Salad was ok. Food was amazing. We were very satisfied at the end. Décor was nice. Kind of have that trendy, modern but not too classey feel to it. Food did take awhile to come out but that is probably because of lack of staff working during Thanksgiving Sunday. Its a holiday so I can’t expect too much on that part. We also noticed that they have handmade chocolate. WOW interesting. I didn’t pickup any chocolate. Overall, very happy. Highly recommend this place.

We came here for happy hour drinks and snacks and ordered a few half bottles of white wine and some Brussels sprouts. It was such a good deal and we had great service.
“””TL:DR – If you’re looking for a great farm fresh casual dining experience at a moderate price point, look no further Note: This visit was from August 2018 – so the menu has changed (Menu changes from season to season so check back regularly) Wanting to try a new restaurant for our 1st wedding anniversary with my wife, we decided to pay a visit the the Market. It had a unique storefront that made it very easy to find from the street. Upon walking in we found the decor inside to be very bright, clean and well designed. There’s a large sized bar area distinguished by it’s darker toned paint, as well as a brightly lit “”””dining room”””” area. We didn’t wait long before we were seated at a cozy table for two, located near the open kitchen. The wait staff were very friendly answering any questions we had regarding the various things on the menu. We decided on the Duck Confit and Tuna Poke Tacos to start, the B.C. Halibut with Sauteed Prawns for my wife and Bone In Pork Loin for myself. It wasn’t too busy when we went, but even so the wait staff checked in to make sure we were topped off on our drinks while we waited for our food to come. The tacos came quick and they were good solid tacos, not the best I’ve ever had but probably the best I’ve had in a few years. Fresh salsa verde along with serrano coleslaw made them delicious just enough to get us through till the main courses came. The butter poached B.C. Halibut came with broccolini, sauteed prawns, and a lobster mashed potato crepe. It was light and moist, but the flavours were very muted and nuanced. If you’re looking for something that’s light and will leave you satisfied a the end look for their fish options. The Bone In Pork Loin came (at the time) with a peach mustard BBQ glaze, grilled broccolini, heirloom carrots and a corn cheddar mashed potato side. This was cooked to perfection as there was  ”
