I like how splendid this place is! They have so many good places in the city but this place really hits the spot. They have so many good canned food that nobody can get for those prices.

One Market Restaurant has horrible robotic service and poorly trained waitstaff. Do not come here unless you want to be treated like a peasant, and made to wait. Given their reputation and cost, I would expect so much more from One Market and highly recommend that you look elsewhere for fine dining experiences in San Francisco.\n\nLong story short, my company had a 40 person event at this restaurant last night. I am suffering from a chronic cough so my girlfriend and I both personally asked at least four off the waitstaff numerous times to bring me some tea. It took these incompetents over 12 minutes to bring me some hot water as I sat coughing up a lung. 12 minutes for water and tea leaves??\n\nI would never come here again, either as a patron or as a guest.

I had heard about One Market from friends, and thought I would try it out. The food is good, with decent proportions, and the location is great. I would definitely go there again.

This would be an absolute perfect place to have a wedding reception. It is open and airy and very elagant. I have never attended a wedding here but I have dined here and the food is very good.

WHILE VACATIONING FROM MASSACHUSETTS, MY WIFE AND I DINED HERE AFTER READING GREAT REVIEWS AND HEARING THE SAME FROM HOTEL STAFF. MENU SELECTION WAS LIMITED AT BEST, AND THE ALA CARTE SECTION WAS DOWNRIGHT LAUGHABLE. MY WIFE ORDERED PORK SHORTRIBS, WHATEVER THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE (I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF IT, AND NEITHER HAVE ANY CHEF FRIENDS I HAVE ) WHICH CONSISTED OF THREE RIB BONES WITH LOTS OF FAT AND A DISGUSTING SAUCE. I ORDERED GUINEA FOWL WHICH CONSISTED OF ONE (SIC) LEG AND THREE SLICES OF BREAST MEAT, ACCOMPANIED BY THREE EXOTIC MUSHROOMS EMBEDDED IN CORN PUREE, WITH FOIE GRAS REDUCTION SAUCE (RIGHT). NEITHER OF OUR ENTREES WOULD HAVE FED A SIX YEAR OLD. WE PASSED ON THE ALA CARTE SIDE WHICH WERE EIGHT DOLLARS EACH; THEY INCLUDED GRILLED POTATO, ONE GLAZED CARROT, AND ANOTHER VEG THAT I CAN'T RECALL. SERVICE WAS FINE, EVERYONE POLITE AND COMPETENT. THE OVERALL ATMOSPHERE WAS OK BUT THE NOISE LEVEL WAS EXTREMELY DISTURBING. WE ALSO WERE SERVED ONE PIECE OF BREAD BY A SPECIFIC BREAD SERVER; HE NEVER CAME BACK. NEEDLESS TO SAY THIS WAS A MOST UNSATISFACTORY EXPERIENCE. THE FOOD WAS TOO SKIMPY, FAIR AT BEST, AND WAY TO EXPENSIVE FOR WHAT WE RECEIVED.

The restaurant atmosphere is nice - nothing too great, but a cool view of the Ferry Building, and that's where the only ""good"" part of this restaurant stops. The soup my wife had was awful - she said it tasted like chicken broth with bits of chicken from KFC in it. My crab salad was OK, but there was WAY too much dressing on it, like a thick yellow mayonnaise/hollandaise sauce on it - completely ruining the great crab taste it was supposed to have.\r\nWe split a main dish (after our horrible appetizer experience) - the halibut. It honestly tasted like soap: if it weren't for the mashed potatoes, we would have honestly only taken one bite. We had to eat them at the same time, dipping the fish in the potatoes. \r\nThe dessert was average, but I would've rather had an ice cream cone. \r\nOk - there you have it. Our experience sucked. One of my good friends lives in San Fran and said ""why did you go there? It's only for business lunches!"" Well, after the fact, the only reason I would take anyone there for business is if I wanted to LOSE the business!

We booked reservations at One Market for Thanksgiving this year. The three course menu sounded delightful with pumpkin ravioli, turkey with cornbread stuffing and several amazing dessert selections. After we were seated at a table with a beautiful view and ordered, I said to my husband how thankful I was to live in California where I don't have to worry about food being made with beef broth, bacon, pork... (I cannot digest it). Halfway through the meal we asked our waiter what one of the vegetable side dishes was and he happened to mention that the cornbread stuffing was made ""traditionally"" with sausage and then asked if we liked it. I laughed at the irony and then spent the next day crying, nautious, bloated and throwing up my ~$65 three course meal. I wish the waiter had mentioned the stuffing was made with sausage when we ordered our entrees and/or that the chef or manager had included that information on the menu. (Maybe they don't know that some people can eat chicken or turkey or fish but not red meat or pork?) On ""black Friday"" I managed to crawl from my bathroom floor to the phone to let the restaurant know that I did get sick and if they could ask the chef to add specific information on their menus in the future. Hopefully they will be more forthcoming. Since they did not apologize it's hard to say. For all you meat eaters, ignore this review and rating and enjoy the rich&heavy food at One Market. But if you can't eat meat and you go, I thought you should know that you need to ask what ingredients are used to make your meal.

Bradley Ogden's One Market Restaurant is a huge, open space restaurant with high ceilings and windows that offer a sweeping view of The Ferry Building and the San Francisco Bay. It??s a lively place that equally suits business and pleasure.The last time we had dinner at One Market Restaurant was during the Christmas holiday season. Our server Risa, suggested Chef Mark Dommen??s six course tasting menu (at $75.00 per person.) After perusing their massive All-American wine list, sommelier Steve Izzo offered our guests the option of wine pairings with each course (at $45.00 per person.) We enjoyed our dining experience and vowed to return soon.
Our most recent experience was very satisfying as well. We had a group of eight for a business dinner. I booked a table near the Chef??s counter with the banquet department. Our reservation was arranged by banquet manager Beth Brown. We opted for a four course menu (at $80.00 per person.) Upon arrival, we were greeted by a friendly hostess. Our server, Jeff made several excellent wine suggestions. We began with the lovely sparkler, 2000 Roederer Estate ??L??Ermitage.? For our first course, some of us opted for a seasonal spring vegetable salad that was quite lovely, a very light crabmeat salad flavored with various herb oil infusions. I had the tamarind glazed shrimp starter with spaghetti squash and pumpkin seed oil. With our starters we enjoyed a fine bottle of 2004 Hartford Court, Stone Cote Vineyard Chardonnay from the Sonoma Coast. Very nice and reminiscent of a Chevalier~Montrachet. Entrees included bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin served with dandelion greens in a garlic cream and served with sauted apples and salsify, grilled New York steak with a shallot-tarragon relish, braised beef cheeks with celeriac risotto, and halibut served with asparagus and mushrooms accompanied by a red wine sauce. We went the 2002 Doyenne Syrah. A big wine that held its own with the savory fare. The dessert selection included crme brulee, chocolate souffl cake, a wonderful strawberry and rhubarb turnover, and the sumptuous butterscotch pudding. With this we had a Sauternes like late harvest sauvignon blanc from Honig that was a big hit. Speaking of big hits, we all got a kick out of our server, Jeff and his charming assistant Eddiel. Jeff??s style and humor was a delightful combination of Lord Buckley and Cassanova punctuated with the flair of a matador. A very enjoyable meal, indeed.

I was impressed by the food at One Market. I definitely recommend the duck breast and the scallops wrapped in pancetta. We took advantage of crab specials and ate excellent crab cakes as a starter. I appreciated the ""mini desserts"" for just $5. My husband got the prix fixe menu, duck breast included, and we thought it was a great deal. I am happy to say that the food at One Market provided the wow factor that I had been missing at other similarly priced downtown restaurants. The service was also great - efficient and knowledgeable. The wine list has an extensive by-the-glass selection. We can't wait to go back.

my family tried to have a nice birthday dinnner here, but had mixed results. we started in the bar and enjoyed the long and creative drink menu, and when we moved to the table things started off well with tasty bread and good service. my dad described the atmosphere as ""early bank"" - true enough - and i think the description of ""superb"" bay views is a bit trumped up (great view of the embarcadero and the ferry building, sure). our appetizers were good - i personally tried the beet ""carpaccio"" with shrimp and the roasted fig salad, which were decent and at least mildly interesting. we had the sommelier recommend a wine, and this may just be because my parents have boring taste in wine but he recommended a bottle that is decent but one you can find in most grocery stores - for me, when you ask a sommelier for a recommendation off a book-thick wine list, you want them to give you something you haven't come across before, so that was a bit disappointing. the worst part of the meal was our entrees - my parents split the beef for two and it was really beef for one - my mom's looked great, while my dad's looked like the dregs. my sister had a duck dish that came highly recommended but was in her estimation overcooked. i got a dish from the wood fired grill, a rare ahi tuna, which itself was good but came in a grapeseed sauce that was practically inedible, and wouldn't have coordinated with the fish even if it had tasted like what they had hoped it would. dessert, however, was great, we finished everything we ordered. \r\nso i guess my summary experience was that this is probably a great spot for lunch or a quick bite at happy hour, where you focus on salads/appetizers rather than the full nice dinner out experience.

This is my favorite lunch spot with clients or co-workers. Great Atmosphere and very yummy menu. They have a nice wine list and their staff is very friendly and knowledgable. My favorite are their tuna dishes, but I've been happy with everything I've tried. Will always be returning and brining friends to share this nice place.

I have eaten here many times and the restaurant never fails to please. The roasted meats are terrific and the sides are fun for sharing, particularly the chickpea fries. The wine list highlights many, many small producers--great choices. The mini desserts are delicious, particularly the Mint Ice Cream Sandwich. This is one of the most underrated restaurants in San Francisco by far!

Maybe its because I always go here with large groups, but I have consistently found both the food and the service to be ""just ok"". Consistency is a plus in that we always can count on a passible meal, but I have never found much ""inspired"" about the menu, the atmosphere, or the waitstaff. Its in a very convenient location and can seat (and adequately serve) very large groups.

I think One Market Restaurant is a great place for a small party but not for a large one - like a wedding. We considered it for our wedding but ruled it out soon after visiting because the space did not fit it for a large crowd. However, my parents had a birthday party there for 25 people and it was perfect. I have to say that the food is extraordinary there - really really good. And so is the service

My girlfriends and I had a great night at One Market. We met the bartenders, Francisco and Brian (who were cute and fun) during happy hour in the bar, and then had dinner at the Chef's table in the restaurant. Chef Mark amazed us course after course, and Steve, the Sommelier wowed us with his wine selections. We will be back soon, no doubt. ;)

I have tried all of the fish dishes on the lunch menu and they are all EXCELLENT. Perfectly cooked, delicious and all prepared with a ""little something extra"" that makes you feel special when you eat it.\n For example there is a Tuna Salad (Nicoise), which has all the ingredients of the classic French salad but is updated with the modern California-styled seared tuna pieces, YUM. The crab salad is a great combination of fennel, avocado, & grapefruit - all perfect compliments to dungeness crab. Don't miss out if this dish is available.

There is only a view of the ferry building not the waterfront. Happy hour is only for the people sitting at the bar not for diners. Very dissappointing! The restaurant was less than a quarter full and the hostess asked us if we had reservations. She seemed displeased that we didn't then sat us. The appertisers were the highlight of the meal. The squash flower risotto was excellent. The bread was terrific, warm sourdough mini loaves. My veal chop was large but tough in areas (range fed). Desserts were good.\nWe had got there at 6pm and by seven the restaurant was 3/4 full. Despite the happy\nhour letdown the beer was a good deal at a little over $4.00 for an imported pint on draft. All in all we would go again gladly.

I went after work one day and it's the best happy hour in the city. They have the best vodka selection I've ever seen. The bartenders are great (especially Francisco ) and so were the drinks. The Sommelier, Steve, was also very helpful with wine selections. We will definitely be back!

I had dinner there last night and it was excellent. My wife had the halibut and I had the pork tenderloin and we were very, very pleased. I liked the fact that the prices were in the $25 dollar entree range and not over $30. We shared the dessert trio where you pick three smaller portion desserts to make up your own platter. Fantastic. Other restuarnants should do the same. Our service was great, too. Prompt, courteous and attentive. All in all a terrific evening. We will highly recommend One Market and will definitely be back.

I've eaten here many times, but tonight was astonishingly bad: we were seated for over 20 minutes before a server first approached us; dishes were served to the wrong people at every course; they attempted to serve us courses that were for a nearby table; at every course there was at least one person who did not receive their order; all the entree plates were cleared while one person was still finishing their entree (the person who's dish had been served 5 minutes after the others); utensils were not replaced after appetizers; the wine steward had no idea who had ordered the wines and asked the wrong person to taste them. Some of these are small infractions, but I expect a much higher quality of service at such an establishment (and at $100 a person), and I was embarrassed at having brought out-of-town business colleagues.

Pros: ambience, location

Cons: , bad attentiveness

We've eaten here twice. The food is very good but the service has been lacking both times. The second time we ate here, we booked the chef's table with some friends for a birthday celebration. At $95 per person, we shouldn't have had to wave down a cook to find our server on numerous occasions. I doubt I would come here again when I can get great food AND GREAT SERVICE elsewhere.

I think this place is underated. I've seen really good reviews on Citysearch and a few negative ones. I've eaten there a few times this year and the food is stellar. Service was good too. Personally, I'm tired of small plates and here you get FED. Generous portions of well prepared food. Happy Hour is fun and a deal though I thought music was a little staid. I also appreciate restaurants that have waiters that serve you without trying to compete with you on the hip scale.

I used to work 3 blocks away, so I ate there quite often for power business lunches. The steak was awesome. I always start with their head of lettuce caesar salad. Their best non-alcoholic drink is the raspberry lemonade. I liked the food so much that I would also take dates here for dinners, where the mood is more romantic and the location is very nice, right next to the Embarcadero. The food is just excellent. I've had all their dishes and there's not one I don't like.

Pros: Food!, Ambience, Service

Cons: , Sometimes very busy

I've been here a few times in the past year and haven't been disappointed yet...delicious meals but last one (this past weekend) was especially good as our bottle of wine was half off. Can't figure out how they can do that but we plan to go a couple more times before the special is over at the end of the month.

One Market was recommended to me by another restaurant in the area. I am planning an event there and came out to San Fran to test and review each potential restaurant. The food was consistently good though a bit eclectic. I went with a group of 6 people and each dish was very good. I will be holding my client dinner there and will give another review once that is done, but the staff was very helpful and was the deciding factor between that and my other choices.

I took clients to the restaurant for dinner. The hostess had an aweful attitude. She was very ""put-out"" that our entire party that we reserved for did not show up (we were one shy of the original reservation). The waiter started out very strong by being friendly and offering the wine list right at the beginning as we sat down. However, after he took the order, the service really slowed down. We waited 1/2 hour between the end of starters until our meal was served.

i like the place but not the price. you get way more somewhere else. it's not really exciting but it's a great place for business dinner. NOTE: don't take your date there. Also, their set dinner menue might seems to be a good deal but very limited selection.

I have to admit that I was also pleasantly surprised with the quality at One Market after reading some of these reviews. Service was generous and attentive, atmosphere was inviting, and the food was excellent. I would recommend the celery root salad with rocquefort, and the pumpkin seed-crusted snapper was tasty. If like me, you miss Eleven Madison in NY, One Market almost does the trick.

Wow. If I had read these reviews before going, I probably would have picked another restaurant. The food was excellent - I had the gnocchi and my dining companion had the salmon. Both were absolutely outstanding. Everything is served with fresh, warm bread and a smile. Our server Jeff was attentive without being overbearing and helped us with our selections. I would highly recomend the blended lemonade. Some things were a little pricey but the lunhc menu was quite reasonable. For 2 courses (lunch) it was less than $30 a person.

My company frequently booked One Market for business lunches and evening client meetings. Although the ambience is pleasing, the food is not. A sample entree? Pasta with pesto and belgian endive. For the record, arugula and anisette does not make a tasty pesto--it makes a bitter inedible dressing and when poured over bland over-cooked egg noodles coated in pine nuts with slivers of endive an inedible meal. $14.50!! Snobby service and inflated prices make One Market a less than ideal dining locale.

The restaurant has a nice open feeling to it. However, the food was not good at all. They had no taste to them. The cocktails were watered down as well!

I feel that One Market is over priced, especially for the quality of food. I wouldn't mind spending the money if it was good..but I found the food to be moderate.

If you have an unlimited expense account and are not interested in good food -- this is the place for you. The setting is noisy, the food is average at best, and the prices are high. Add poor service to that and you have a good description of One Market.

I have eaten at this restaurant twice and both times the service was horrible. The wait staff there are very unprofessional and rude! Food was only ok. There are other restaurants of the same level with much better food and service such as Rubicon, Farrallon and Hawthorne Lane.

We didn't expect too much based on other reviews here, but everything was perfect. Perhaps there are consistency problems, but start to finish we had a great experience. Super food (foie gras salad!!), great service, nice wine, and piano music. All together a hard to beat combination.

One Market serves as a sort of festive, highbrow gathering spot for all of San Francisco thanks (as its address suggests) to its keystone location at the tip of Market Street, across from the Ferry Building. The lovely, expansive room and…
