We ate at Market about a week after it opened and it was excellent. The food and service was great, its very cozy inside. Highly Recommended!

Good Food, but a little more than I wanted to spend.

Knowing Market was started by the owners of Match, I had high expectations. Market did not disappoint. The food was excellent. The menu was smaller a little funkier than Match, but we all tried different items, and all were great! Service was a little on the slow side for the price, but at least we weren’t rushed in and out. Drink menu was inventive and the design of the place is great.

Save your money.
I ate at Market Restaurant last night in Stamford, CT and was expecting a nice meal with good atmosphere and ended up being quite disappointed. The presentation was okay and the staff was cordial, but neither were overwhelming considering the cost of the dinner.
I went with my boyfriend who ordered the Rock Shrimp, which was the best part of the night as the appetizer was unique, tasty and presented well. I ordered the meatballs, which were cold on the inside with hot sauce on top.
Then came the entrees. My boyfriend ordered the steak, which was cooked well, but the Au Gratin potatoes were super salty and overpowered by smokey bacon and the spinach was quite salty as well.
I ordered the Monk Fish, which is what really prompted me to write this review. The Monk Fish was the worst dish I have ever (yes, ever) had. To compare, a salad at Lucky’s was like a five star dinner compared to the dinner at Market
I never waste food and always take my leftovers home and this was the one time that I had to decline. I even tried to get my boyfriend to eat the dinner, but he took one bite and nearly spit it out.
I suggest you save your money and pass this place up as the bill far exceeded the experience and there are a lot of other great places in Stamford to enjoy a night out.

can’t rate this place because we never sat down. had a 8:30 reservation, walked in @ 8:30 and was told we don’t have a table available yet.i had asked for 8:00 and was told 8:30 would be better . after 30 mins. and seeing there were at least 6 couples waiting ahead of us we went to columbus park which was excellent. we might give it another try but not real soon.

Market and Open Table need to get their act together. I had reserved a table for a nice Sunday birthday brunch. I got my confirmation# and when we all showed up at noon , they were closed. How do they let me make a reservation when they’re closed. Neither were very apologetic and both Market and Open Table blamed each other. We ended up at Napa & Co. and had a great meal. Market will never get my business.

I ate dinner at the Market the other night and can safely say I will never be back. The quality of food did not match the ridiculous price I paid for the meal and the service was horrendous. The Maitre d’ became difficult when she saw I was bringing my two sons to eat. When I spoke to the manager about this issue, he was extremely rude as well, literally laughing in my wife’s face. I have never been so offended by restaurant management in my life, and advise anyone thinking about dining here to reconsider someplace cheaper, more respectful, and with better food.

This place was a huge disappointment. We went b/c they were listed as a participant in restaurant week on the posters and on the Stamford Downtown website. We had a reservation for 8pm, and we weren’t seated until after 8:30 (and they didn’t buy us a drink for our trouble). When we finally got seated, I asked for the Restaurant Week menu, and the waiter says that they weren’t participating for dinner. That was ridiculous. The advertising clearly indicated which restaurants were lunch only. So we were stuck ordering their overpriced food (which turned out to be nothing great). The waiter was totally unapologetic and didn’t offer to do anything to help the situation. All in all, we found this place very snotty.
