I loved that they have a large and small plates option. You can share amongst friends, or get a few small plates for your dinner, or go for the full gusto and get an entree. The rabbit, lamb, and mussels are to die for. Cocktails are great. Service was superb.

This place is white table cloth, the market name kind of throws you off a little bit, it is fine dining. I had the trout, which was great. My wife had the Lamb, also great. This place was really close to some local bars, so it makes it fun to eat here and then go check out the local brew.

We had an outstanding meal at the Market Place restaurant in Asheville. The food was superb and our waiter, Jason , was exceptional. Jason was friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. His recommendations were spot on. We started with the mussels. They were small but tasty. The juice the mussels came in was wonderful. We asked to share a salad and they... More

Market Place is in the center of Asheville. The menu features items from local farmers and varies based on the season and on what is available. We had a pork dish, which was superb, and a house-made pasta with braised lamb sauce, also excellent. The waitstaff was attentive and informative. The ambiance is comfortable. The evening we were there a... More

Snagging an outside table on a perfect night, we really enjoyed our dining experience here. The mac and cheese was yummy, the pickles were great including the kimchi, which I am not normally a fan of, the edamame were so good we ordered another one and the salmon was probably some of the best salmon I have ever had.

After a leisurely day of shopping and wandering downtown Asheville, my husband and I were ready for a great dinner in a great eatery. I am so happy I chose The Market Place. I made a reservation but it really wasn't needed because we were eating prior to dinner rush (we arrived 5:30ish). The bar was so inviting and a... More

I set out to find a perfect restaurant that would meet all the needs of our party....two tweens, two moms and food restrictions (gluten, egg, dairy, etc). This restaurant hit the mark and all loved our meals. The server was kind and accommodating with our needs. The live dj/jazz/chill music was also a nice touch. There are a lot of... More

An interesting and ever changing menu. I had Paul led pork shoulder with a boiled peanut and Lima bean succotash, delicious. Also an excellent assortment of craft cocktails. Relaxing evening with friendly attentive service. Highly recommended.
