While staying in Del Mar we ventured out of the hotel to this beautiful restaurant. The food was fresh, beautifully prepared & delicious. The wine list was wonderful, we had great choices of California wines not available to us back home in NY. The service excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

On of the best dining experiences ever - from the prompt seating, impeccable service, 2 amuse bouche intermezzos and dishes perfectly prepared with exciting but unexpected combinations of flavors and tastes. The menu changes frequently based on what is fresh and available from local farms. on our visit we started with heirloom tomato soup served over ratatouille and a warm... More

Went to Market Restaurant & Bar to celebrate a special occasion that put us in the area. Knew that it was pricey going in but decided to splurge. Atmosphere was very nice with acoustics that allowed us to have an intimate conversation at our table for two. Service was exemplary, attentive without being overbearing. Wish I could remember our waiter's... More

This restaurant is not in Del Mar! In fact, it is 3.2 miles from 15th and Camino Del Mar and over an hour walk from l'Auberge Del Mar.

We picked this restaurant from Trip Advisor reviews and they were spot on. From the personable valet to the last bite of the dessert we couldn't ask for higher quality. The combination of favors from our appetizers, remise en bouches, and our main meal showcased the talents of the chef. I had one of their specials of the evening. Cap... More

My very favorite restaurant in all of San Diego. We try to go about once a month, and are never disappointed. Food is fresh and seasonal, but some favorites remain. The amuse bouche is always creative and it is hard to get enough of their little corn muffins. Wait staff friendly and informative. Can't wait to go back!

We dined at Market on Monday evening and sat at the bar. We had a few minor order issues but the attentiveness of the staff was so high class the issues were null. Once in awhile issues happen. It's how these issues are handled is what's important. I would HIGHLY recommend Market and will definitely return. Keep up the good... More

Went here in mid January during Restaurant Week so the menu was abbreviated. That being said, the food and service was excellent. Market was recommended by our hotel and I'm glad they did! A little congested upon entering the restaurant as that space is also near the bar, but once in the restaurant there was nice spacing between the tables... More
