The innovative cuisine at Market is consistently outstanding, and we salute the chef. Beyond the quality of the food and wine, which is wonderful, the dining experience is enhanced by the carefully designed dining room, which softens the impact of sound and allows one to...More

Excellent farm to table using fresh ingredients. Menu changes often as Chef works with the best local products. Fish, meats and more. Excellent presentation and service. The most delicious of foods. Perfect for a special occasion rather than the daily meal.

We don't drink wine and Dale has two vodka with dinner. My guess is that dinner for two on this basis is about $150 plus tax and tip and well worth it

I don't recall the prices but comparable to the places we frequent in Houston. The service was above par, even brought us some free samples of new dish they were trying.
