One Market Restaurant features an open exhibition kitchen with a "Chef's Table" in the kitchen, two private dining rooms, a luxurious bar (watched over by a fantastic James Stagg painting of the Marin Farmer's Market commissioned for the restaurant). Add a top-notch staff and there's little wonder why One Market has been packed from the first day. …
...I like this place. I think this place is underated. I've seen really good reviews on Citysearch and a few negative ones. I've eaten there a few times this year and the food is stellar. Service was good too. Personally, I'm tired of small plates and here you get FED. Generous portions of well prepared food. Happy Hour is fun and a deal though I thought music was a little staid. I also appreciate restaurants that have waiters that serve you without trying to compete with you on the hip scale.
Expensive but great food lunch or dinner. I used to work 3 blocks away, so I ate there quite often for power business lunches. The steak was awesome. I always start with their head of lettuce caesar salad. Their best non-alcoholic drink is the raspberry lemonade. I liked the food so much that I would also take dates here for dinners, where the mood is more romantic and the location is very nice, right next to the Embarcadero. The food is just excellent. I've had all their dishes and there's not one I don't like.
..always pleasant. I've been here a few times in the past year and haven't been disappointed yet...delicious meals but last one (this past weekend) was especially good as our bottle of wine was half off. Can't figure out how they can do that but we plan to go a couple more times before the special is over at the end of the month.
Surprised. One Market was recommended to me by another restaurant in the area. I am planning an event there and came out to San Fran to test and review each potential restaurant. The food was consistently good though a bit eclectic. I went with a group of 6 people and each dish was very good. I will be holding my client dinner there and will give another review once that is done, but the staff was very helpful and was the deciding factor between that and my other choices.
One Market Restaurant. I took clients to the restaurant for dinner. The hostess had an aweful attitude. She was very "put-out" that our entire party that we reserved for did not show up (we were one shy of the original reservation). The waiter started out very strong by being friendly and offering the wine list right at the beginning as we sat down. However, after he took the order, the service really slowed down. We waited 1/2 hour between the end of starters until our meal was served.
too much for not a whole lot. i like the place but not the price. you get way more somewhere else. it's not really exciting but it's a great place for business dinner. NOTE: don't take your date there. Also, their set dinner menue might seems to be a good deal but very limited selection.
great fish. I have to admit that I was also pleasantly surprised with the quality at One Market after reading some of these reviews. Service was generous and attentive, atmosphere was inviting, and the food was excellent. I would recommend the celery root salad with rocquefort, and the pumpkin seed-crusted snapper was tasty. If like me, you miss Eleven Madison in NY, One Market almost does the trick.
Maybe I caught them on a good day but.... Wow. If I had read these reviews before going, I probably would have picked another restaurant. The food was excellent - I had the gnocchi and my dining companion had the salmon. Both were absolutely outstanding. Everything is served with fresh, warm bread and a smile. Our server Jeff was attentive without being overbearing and helped us with our selections. I would highly recomend the blended lemonade. Some things were a little pricey but the lunhc menu was quite reasonable. For 2 courses (lunch) it was less than $30 a person.
Pricey and lackluster food.. My company frequently booked One Market for business lunches and evening client meetings. Although the ambience is pleasing, the food is not. A sample entree? Pasta with pesto and belgian endive. For the record, arugula and anisette does not make a tasty pesto--it makes a bitter inedible dressing and when poured over bland over-cooked egg noodles coated in pine nuts with slivers of endive an inedible meal. $14.50!! Snobby service and inflated prices make One Market a less than ideal dining locale.
Bad food!. The restaurant has a nice open feeling to it. However, the food was not good at all. They had no taste to them. The cocktails were watered down as well!
