Went in with a large group for brunch. Had reservations and restaurant is very large and was able to accommodate us with no issues. The food really was great. Every single thing our group got was good. Would make a point to go back every time we are in Asheville. The highlight of the trip.

We were looking for a brunch place in Asheville and found the Marketplace. Parking is very close in a garage. It is near a lot of shops. Food was very nice and they had different things than many restaurants.

My wife and I have visited the Market Place several occasions over the years, and it never fails to disappoint, at least me! We arrived at our reserved time, 6:45, and were immediately seated. On this occasion we both had the pear salad to start and enjoyed it. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. My entree was the beef... More

We dined at The Market Place with friends. It was our first time in this busy and hip downturn restaurant in Asheville, NC. The food choices were many and amazing. Prepared to perfection and delicious is how I would describe our wonderful dinner. We definitely will return on our next visit. The trout I had was wonderful!

Stopped in for brunch on New Year's Eve before our flight back home. We arrived at opening and had a reservation, though it looked like we didn't need one. I was worried that might mean it wasn't going to be good, but luckily it turned out to be a great meal! The restaurant is beautiful, bigger than most in downtown... More

A very quaint place with excellent service and locally sourced food. Our waiter told us they pride themselves on being local. It was an all-around great experience.

Been waiting a while to be able to get reservations here. It was worth the wait. The atmosphere here is very relaxing and European. Loved the live music by the front of the restaurant that filled the whole building. The mushroom small plate was delicious. There were three of us and we all tried something different. It was a special... More

Serving Peet's Coffee, this market had great breakfast sandwiches and fresh pastries. The house made donuts are outstanding. Great value! Grab you breakfast and sit along the windows facing the mountain. Very relaxing.
