could be better – The steaks are overpriced $34 for a "usda choice" new york steak!come on for that price you should get Prime.
The rib eye was a bit though and the sauces are watery.
The desserts and bread were really good.
How do you get a table here? – We never got a chance to taste the food. After a wait of 45 minutes and others being seated who arrived after us, we left.
It was good – Expensive but good, my tuna was great. My boyfriends lobster was amazing! However $40 for a lobster tail is a lot. I've been to restaurants around the same $$$ and liked them better...I guess I just wasn't that impressed. Service was good though...my boyfriend liked it... it's not a place that I would go to again and to me it didn't live up to it's reputation. However, I didn't dislike it..
Not was it's cracked up to be – My husband & his family are big seafood eaters (whereas I am not), so we've gone to Market Street a couple of times since it is has the reputation of being the best seafood in the state. Not so...the non-seafood items are all sub-par; not a bit of deliciousness cooked into them - its like their way of punishing those of us who dislike seafood. And according to the rest of our group, not one of the seafood plates was exceptional. Even people I know who have once been big Market Street fans have started to steer clear because it has apparently gone downhill as far as taste. If you want the seafood, I would recommend buying from their fresh market & cooking it at home.
Recommended – I started a review for the Market Street Grill by the UofU and realized that it is called Market Street Broiler. Will post review of MSB.
Worst Service Ever!!! – My friends and I went to this restaurant because it was the only one without a 90 min. wait. Bit mistake. We still ended up waiting more than 90 minutes for our main course. Our drinks were slow, our waiter continually forgot to fill glasses, and brought chowder we didn't order and forgot twice the olive oil and vinigar that we did. The food was all awful. My friend's black bass looked like jerky. My other friend's dishes tasted like they were made with canned spegetti sauce. Normally I like lightly salted food, but the chef forgot to add any salt to my food at all. The waiter at one point left our table unattended for over 1/2 hour. This was overall the worst restaurant experience I have ever had, and except for exceptional company the night would have been ruined. Please spare yourself and dine anywhere else, even if it means waiting 90 minutes for a table. You just might have to wait 90 minutes to eat here anyways.
Great service, great food Sept. 2006 – We went there despite the negative reviews especially the grim reviews about the service. Alll the waiters were attentive and smiley. We had two waiters and both were excellent. The food was out of this world. We were tired of overly salty food, so this restaurant was just perfect. We had Key Lime pie and Almond torte with rasberries. They were the best desert we've ever had!
An eclectic bunch of people come to Sunday Brunch – Sunday brunch is a great all around experience at the downtown Market Street. Being on the list of "our regular spots", I have only been disappointed by the food on a single ocassion. Most times it is totally amazing. I especially like to substitute the au graten potatos for what ever comes with my dish. (Same potatos that I miss from the old Bacci restaraunt!) This place tops my list for fresh fish. The atmosphere is great.
Still good seafood, service is gone – If you want good seafood, Market Street will not disappoint you. If you looking to impress someone, or just want an enjoyable evening with good service, go somewhere else. This place used to be "it". What happened? No more a premier restaurant, a has been.
Don't think you can find good seafood in landlocked Utah? This lively restaurant serves only the freshest fare. – The Scene
For breakfast, lunch or dinner, this is probably the most popular seafood restaurant in town. Fresh fish and other deep-sea delicacies are flown in fresh each day from around the country. The place has a classic look, and the din of enthusiastic conversation rises throughout the day.
Here, you'll find the freshest fish in omelettes, sandwiches and by itself. This restaurant also specializes in shrimp, crab, mussels, clams, scallops--just about anything that lives in the ocean. Diners feast on bowls of the famous seafood chowder, green salads (preferably with the creamy Caesar house dressing) and all the crusty sourdough bread they can eat. There's also an extensive wine list. The desserts are superb, especially the chocolate Decadence, sabayon and fruit tarts.
