Our server Ryan was excellent and his recommendations were right on! The whiskey onion soup, chicken roulade, escargot, pork chop were all fabulous! Restaurant has a fun book theme.

This was our second visit to The Goblin Market, and it was just as perfect as the first time. We were seated upstairs this time, where it leads to a bar area and bathrooms. The whole restaurant is beautiful and timeless, it`s worth visiting for...the visual alone. Menu is nice and it does change for some items. We`ve had a few choices from the menu and they are all wonderful, good prices too for the quality and portion size. Steve looked after us this visit and he was wonderful. Also enjoyed a spicy mango margarita which lived up to it`s name and didn`t disappoint. I would absolutely recommend a visit to this beautiful restaurant, you won`t be disappointed.More

Very unusual but intriguing surroundings matched by first class catering. They get very busy - which is a recommendation in itself - don't be impatient, it is worth waiting for.

This restaurant is on the high-end for prices but defnitely worth every penny. The food (portion, presentation, flavor), the ambience & the service. Our server, Mike, was attentive & profesional. We sat upstairs & I was glad I had my sweater with me (a bit...chilly). I had the blueberry sangria (sweet & delicious). My sweetie & I each had the Irish Whiskey onion soup (mine was w/o the croutons). Yummy. My sweetie had the quiche (a special) & I had the chicken breast with Swiss cheese & a mango relish (or salsa) on top (also a special). I had it w/o the Brioche Bun & added a side salad instead. Delicious. Small bar upstairs by the restroom. This place was a recommendation from "Robin" our tour guide on the Rusty Anchor boat tours. So glad we listened & checked it out. No military discount, though.More

Pretty good food as we’ve eaten here several times. However we will never return due to how we were treated trying to make a reservation recently. The management is rude, no customer service, and they simply don’t care. We’ll never return.

Amazing restaurant and a most visit while in town. Reservations need to be made well in advance. From start to finish this place was full of flavor! I can remember a better experience overall.

Five of us dined for lunch with four coming for their first visit. Our waitress was thorough, polite & did her best to make our lunch wonderful. She came to our table 4 times to check on us & refill our waters. The portobello wrap...contained portobello, lettuce, roasted peppers, tomato, red onion, asparagus, and gorgonzola mayo which was delicious! The only thing that could’ve made it better was maybe serving the mayo mixture on the side to dip in so as not to have it ooze out after the first few bites. A mini dish of seasoned orzo accompanied the dish and homemade chips or french fries too. The burger special was enjoyed by others & was yummy. It was flavorful and also came with the orzo dish + fries or chips.More

Best dinner in Mount Dora. On the pricey side but well worth it and a step above other local restaurants. Interesting and tasty food with creative combinations. Both shrimp and duck were excellent. We sat outside in the tiny yet intimate patio which is super...dog friendly. inside looked romantic with nice lighting. Great craft cocktailsMore

We enjoyed it so much!! Such a gem. We had the pork tenderloin platter and the cashew chicken sandwich. Both were delicious!! We were lucky enough to sit outside which was so relaxing. The staff was very kind and we will definitely go back.

You should be able to just walk in. They get busy but it’s not necessary for you to get a reservation.
