We had a wonderful dinner at The Market Place. We had the hand cut Pappardelle and the Roasted Beet and Ricotta Agnolotti. Both dishes were delicious and expertly prepared. The live music was great!

We had a wonderful waiter who was very attentive and knowledgeable. 4 of us shared a variety of the appetizers and one entree. The food was all good and unique, but not so wonderful that I'd make a special effort to go back. The pork shoulder we read so much about was tasty, but a bit dry. The truffle fries... More

Had a recent meal here with friends, 7 people. We were seated at a terrific table, with a great and attentive server, wonderful food, paced right, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I wish I could remember what we ate, it was all good, I highly recommend this restaurant- one of the best in Asheville!

The food is excellent. Portions are small. The service was inattentive. Very noisy with a group upstairs. I think they're trying too hard to be the coolest place in town.

Unique menu, casual atmosphere. We ate outside on the patio, right on the street. It was a bit buggy, but that's not the restaurant's fault. Enjoyed our dinner, water was cool.

Food was excellent at recent dinner, especially the house made pickle appetizer and snapper entree. Dinner for 4 with three courses and one round of drinks took over two hours on Friday night. Server offered little enthusiasm for or knowledge of the menu. He read descriptions of the two relatively simple special menu items from his notepad even though we... More

First I love the quaint Wall Street location! The restaurant offers some outdoor seating and a bar area if you are waiting for your table reservation. I have visited several times and find the menu to be consistent with delivery each time. All ingredients are sourced local and are fresh. Kudos to the chief and staff!

Went for dinner after being caught in a t-storm (wet!). Expecting fine food, especially the lamb dish, as recommended by others. It was tasty but the portion was small. No bread was served. We were still hungry so ordered dessert. As explained to us by the manager, the ice cream with the cake was just a toping and not a... More

We had never been to The Market Place for brunch and decided to try it for Mother's Day. Good choice! The rear section of the restaurant is a very attractive two-story space that overlooks Pritchard Park. Service was a little slow because there were a number of big parties in our area. The piped in music was too loud, as... More
