“Best Dessert Ever”
Reviewed 13 October 2012

We stopped by this place just for the dessert after our dinner. We were told that this place was a restaurant extension of a cooking school and it did not let us down. We had 4 different deserts. They were all delicious, especially the cheesecake. The icecreams were all great, too. They were all presented to us delicately in french style. The service was also excellent .

“Lovely restaurant, good food, wine and service”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

The restaurant had a lovely relaxed, clean atmosphere. We could see the Market's Cooking School from our table. I went with several folks from a local business that I consult for - they often bring people here and it's easy to see why. The service was quite attentive (maybe a bit too much). The menu allows you to select your preferred number of dishes from apps, entrees, desserts. I had the beautiful heirloom tomato salad...but for the life of me, I can't remember what I had for the entree. Perhaps because I left there to catch the red-eye back home and this might have caused a short-lived retrograde amnesia. So, my general impression was quite positive - but sorry about my imprecision.

“Great place!”
Reviewed 28 June 2012

I met a friend here for cocktails yet needed something to eat prior to our meeting. I absolutely loved the roasted beet salad - could have ate more of it. The food that I had was outstanding, and the staff was tremendously kind and attentive. I would absolutely return.

“Scallops to die for”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

I went with some business colleagues so I have no idea on pricing, but we started with a fresh beet salad - multi colored beets with a nice light dressing, then the main entree was sea scallops -- heavenly! If you are a heavy eater, this will NOT fill you up but it was very good. For dessert, we had their strawberry shortcake- this is not the usual layers of biscuit/scone with whipped cream and strawberries but a panna cotta like strawberry dessert that was also very good. They freshly press all coffee for dessert -- and they steam and froth their milk for the coffee -- wow, what service. For wine, I had an excellent Malbec - again, not knowing prices might have made things taste better, but they do have a nice set up.

Downstairs, they have the Draeger's Market - which was a treat in itself to browse for flowers, cheese, chocolate, and fresh fruit.
