One Market Restaurant Review

: 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 separate bar attract travelers, executives and locals. Though the restaurant was founded more than two decades ago by chef Bradley Ogden, chef Mark Dommen has now long held the reins in the exhibition kitchen (which features a delightful chef’s table) and can be credited with prettying up the seasonal contemporary American menu with equal parts zest and accessible sophistication. Lush Tasmanian ocean trout mi cuit is layered around potato rosti and topped with a poached egg. Just-right pork tenderloin is neatly wrapped in bacon and served over dandelion persillade and salsify, while roasted Liberty Farms duck breast is accompanied by duck andouille sausage, hazelnut granola and chocolate. We like anything here prepared with hand-picked Dungeness crab. Guests looking for a light bite in the bar can choose from dishes such as savory cheese donuts with bacon aïoli and habanero cheddar. The wine list is hefty, fun and features American wines only, with a short list by the glass. Pastry chef Patti Dellamonica-Bauler’s deceptively whimsical desserts burst with seasonal flavors straight from the farmers market nearby. Servers bustle and guide with warmth and panache. Private events are a specialty here.

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.

Long 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??

I would never come here again, either as a patron or as a guest.
