Great food - Our service was disrespctful... 3/27/2007

Went on a Thursday night without reservations - larger group (6 of us)... were treated with very little respect. I feel very belittled when I go out with a group of students and am treated as we are ten years younger. We were not asked for drinks, were not given specials, handed our meals and NOT ONCE asked how our meal was. Turns out, the food was excellent. It's a shame the service left much to be desired. I'm sure the treatment would have been different if we were a group of 50-somethings, but who's to say we don't have twice as much money as they would? Nothing ticks me off more than receiving poor service due to my age. My final word: If you're over 30 and with 4 or less, give it a shot and pray you don't get our waiter. more

another great meal 2/23/2007

Earlier this week we had dinner at Market Street Grill and we received the usual lovely dinner fare. This time I had the grilled escolar dish and it was a wonderful meal of one of my new favorite fish types. I'd been introduced to escolar via sushi at Rain but having it grilled is just as decadent. My partner had the Caesar Salad and the roast chicken dinner. My assistant had the bar menu macaroni and cheese, tuna tartare, and the squash soup. All were very good and we all left sated and happy. There are some new wines by the glass (and bottle) on the menu and I love that they rotate some of these around. It's definitely worth coming here frequently to check out the menu and wine list changes. more

Summer menu at Market Street Grill 7/21/2006

We went to happy hour at Market Street Grill on Monday July 17th and checked out the latest seasonal fare. Besides the lovely new rose' on the wine by the glass list ($4.50 at happy hour) we sampled the happy hour seasonal salad ($4.00 each) made with butter lettuce, and a beef carpaccio ($7.00). I thought the carpaccio was so good and I wanted more that I ordered another one for my dinner. Michael decided to order the rainbow trout entree ($18.00) with peas and pea shoots along with a potato puree. It was a wonderful dish (I sampled). Overall a great summer meal. more

Truffled scallops - yum. 4/17/2006

We visited Market Street Gril in Ballard on Saturday evening and were treated to a very good meal. The restaurant sort of looks like a Wrap place from the outside, and inside the decor is also a bit unusual and didn't all seem to fit together - a huge street map on one wall, a diner-style neon clock on another, and more traditional paintings on a third wall. This interesting, but slightly out of place decor did a good job of describing much of the experience. They were out of the first wine we ordered. And the second. On her third trip, the waitress suggested a wine that she knew they had, but as also notably more expensive then the first two we attempted to order. We had the braised short ribs and calamari appetizers. The short ribs were excellent - so tender that the meat just fell off the bone. However the calamari underwhelmed us - it was a bit heavy and somewhat soggy. The salsa-verde, cilantro soy vinagrette didn't compliment the calimari nearly as well as I had hoped it would. Our group sampled several entrees, the rib-eye, the sea scallops and the lamb sausage. The scallops were undoubtedly the standout dish, featuring delicately shaved truffles scattered along the dish (although the plentiful daikon sprouts just got in the way of the rest of the dish). The scallops are reason enough to go to the Market Street Grill. The rib-eye was good, but not exceptional, and the same could be said about the lamb sausage. We had a great lemon bread pudding and a so-so chocolate torte. The bread pudding was very good, although the berry sauce at the bottom seemed a bit unusual. Definitely worth a visit, even if you have nothing more than the short ribs and scallops. more

Great dinner at Market Street Grill 3/20/2006

We tried Market Street Grill during the 25 for $25 last week. The romaine hearts caesar was delicious, and those brown butter croutons - yum. Unfortunately, we all had the same thing, so I can only comment on that entree. A ribeye. Perfectly cooked and tender. Dessert was creme brulee for me, and it was awesome. The service could not have been better, and if I could afford it a regular prices, I'd go back! more

too ritzy for me 12/29/2005

It's a really delicious little spot, but it's way too expensive for me to go too often. more

Ballard's little secret 9/7/2004

Market Street Grill, one of Seattle's best kept secrets, is a delightful restaurant with delicious, innovative fare and terrific service. Why it has gone relatively under-appreciated for so long is a mystery. The menu is ecclectic northwest, the wine list is robust, and the neighborhood feeling is unmistakeable. Enjoy! more
