I have attended many parties and meals at Dandelion Market and the food is always spot on. Delicious, piping hot, full of vegetarian options for me. Wolf, the mixologist, is brilliant. Balanced drinks. The venue is a great pub, restaurant, club, and lounge all in one!

We decided to try the Dandelion Market because it is conveniently located near the Bloomenthal Performing Arts Center. The small restaurant has a pub vibe both inside and out with dark woods and a dominate bar near the back. We were seated at the last empty table next to the entrance. Chilly here, but worth it to sample the offering... More

This is a short walk from my office near a cemetery but don't let that put you off. This place is a resto bar downstairs and upstairs. We chose to go upstairs and have like tapas, some beer and wine. The waitress was really helpful because we had a vegetarian with us, and we were offered a variety of options.... More

For a self proclaimed tapas ("small plates") place, I found the Dandelion Market a mixed bag. The food was reasonably priced (for tapas), nice quality & quantity. I enjoyed both plates and the portions were appropriate for small plates. The red wine list (by the glass) choices were few and disappointing. Seemed like there was a bigger focus on the... More

We were staying at the Marriott Center City and this nearby Resturaunt offered great small plates. We had the Brussels spouts, gnocchi carmalized, steak skewers which were delicious and affordable. They offer $15 a bottle wine night on Tuesday which is quit a value as the location is so convenient to several hotels and is in a desirable area of... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality and diversity of the food. The menu is primarily tapas style and very eclectic. We had the lollypop lamb chops, spicy and garlicky green beens and the shrimp and grits. All were very good. Since this is a tapas style restaurant the portions are small but shareable. The best part of the... More

Recommended this place by a friend and it didn't disappoint. Tapas style with a rustic feel, the food was fresh and tasty, the service attentive and good value for money. Of the dishes we had, the only one that merited some left overs was the patatas bravas which weren't finished due to them being over-cooked and crispy. Would definitely recommend... More
