My date and I visited Market Street Grill for the first time on a quiet Tuesday night around 7. We were one of the only couples in the place, and accordingly service was fine, though perfunctory. The food, however, proved disappointing, especially considering the prices. A "Scallop Two Ways" appetizer offered a tasty sashimi preparation and a slightly mushy piece of tempura with a heavy sauce--not an inspired way to prepare a scallop. Sadly, this dish was the highlight. Wild boar was nicely cooked but dull. The lamb was a cut that apparently should never be prepared in the manner it was. Fatty, sinewy, and chewy, the thick pieces required sawing with a steak knife. The nearest equivalent would be a quickly grilled London broil -- not a good idea. To conclude we ordered a chocolate hazelnut tart which appeared to come straight from a Marie Calendar's box. It was cold, the crust looked premade and was hard as rock, the filling tasted like instant pudding. This dessert was $8. Our entrees were each over $20. We don't mind spending money for quality food, but nothing we ate this night came close to rising to fine dining standards. Maybe we just came on an off night? Ordered the wrong things? We won't be returning to find out.
Pros: Nice ambience
Cons: Overpriced, poorly executed food
