My wife and I went to Market with a large group of friends to celebrate a birthday. The food tasted great, but our entire experience was ruined because of simply terrible service. Even though I've read many other reviews echo the same thing, I went in quite hopeful that it wouldn't be as bad as people claimed. But it really was quite terrible, and even though we really enjoyed the food, we will never go back due to the horrible service.
Our server was very curt, impatient and inconsiderate with us all evening, going as far as cutting in on conversations and rudely lecturing one of my friends when she misheard something. I acknowledge the fact that many of us decided to skip drinks/appetizers/dessert, which deflated her tip a bit - so maybe that's why she was so unaccomodating. That makes it worse though, doesn't it? Good service should be consistent, and not just reserved for customers who spend a lot of money.
At the end of the meal when everybody finished paying, our server wouldn't let us go claiming that she didn't have everybody's signed credit card receipts yet. Nobody was surprised when she actually had it all along (she misplaced it) but failed to come back to our table to apologize for making us wait for no reason. In fact, she didn't even come back at all! Somebody from our party had to go find her to get an update, to which she casually said that she did have them after all. Yikes.
The only good service we received was from the busers, who were all polite and attentive. The manager was kind of a jerk and was very insincere. Kept claiming that "it was no problem" and that "they were happy to do that" when he cleared up some confusion regarding the bill. I didn't even ask him to correct anything, I was just asking a question - yet he had the audacity to come back to our table (after the matter was resolved) to say, "Just so you know, [we were right and you were wrong]... but don't worry, we were happy to take care of that for you." (Paraphrasing was done to make a long story short).
Oh, the place looked beautiful and was very well decorated.
