    Went on Sunday morning for brunch/breakfast. Their Bloody Mary board is excellent! You can create your beverage to your liking. I love that! Great idea. I had the meat quiche and it was delicious and the service was great for us, very prompt. I like the grab-n-go options as well as some of the marketplace items like quail eggs, very cool. I will definitely be going back since it's right in our hood as well.

    Service was good but it was very slow and they weren't busy at all. The food was decent. Nothing stand out or memorable. I thought their kids meal was one of the best and most wholesome that my daughter has had at a restaurant. My favorite thing was their bread board. We'd come back for happy hour and bar bites.

    Everything about the experience here is tops. Happened across it while on my way to a different place, and am thrilled with my decision. The food, wow. I had an omelette. The menu liats three different kind, a pepper, a pok and a cheese. I thought all three sounded good, so they made a combo and omg it must be one of the best omelets I've ever had! The details of the whole place have been well thought out. From the size of the coffee cup to the music to even a nice little shelf next the to toilet in the bathroom (perfectly clean bathroom, btw) I'd make this my go to diner if I lived anywhere even remotely close!

    What a cute little restaurant! The husband and I came here to get dessert and coffee one night and it was lovely. We ordered the flourless chocolate cake board.... it was so crazy good, maybe one of the best desserts I've had in Phoenix (maaaaybe). It's a delicious, dense, chocolate cake (and a large piece too!), with an espresso mascarpone topping and 3 other toppings in small containers. The toppings were raspberries macerated with mint, strawberries, and some kind of brittle. The cake with the cream and the raspberries was pure gold. I would come here just for this again. Also, the coffee was delicious and the cream came in a cute mini milk bottle (aww). The only downside was the service was a little inattentive, especially for such a small place. Anyway, I would like to come back to try their other food!

    I came here after flying in from Seattle. The staff was fantastic! I came with 2 kids, they were accommodating and kind. I Loved the interior right away! I love the selection of local foods and drinks. I started with asparagus board. It was divine! Everyone enjoyed the food. We had burgers, salmon, fries. I wish this little gem was closer to me. I highly recommend it. The food was outstanding and the prices very good. Hope I can visit again.

    I've been wanting to check this place out for awhile and after Chow Bella mentioned how awesome the brunch is on the weekends, my boyfriend and I stopped by. He had the vegetable omelette, I had the meat quiche and we shared a side of bacon. The food was delicious, especially the bacon. The bacon had this amazing, smoky flavor to it. The quiche tasted fresh and flavorful. The reason for the three stars is the service. I'm not sure if our server was new, but she didn't seem to know the answer to any of our questions. We asked what was in the vegetable omelette and she kind of hemmed and hawed before asking the chef, then she didn't know what the price of the special bacon was, etc. I had ordered a hot chocolate too, but that didn't come out until halfway through the meal and it was lukewarm. The other server seemed more experienced and I hope to get her next time. The food is delicious, so I'll be back again, but hopefully the newer server gets more training.

    Happened to stop by for a late lunch right as happy hour started. Service was great, both our server Beau and the mgr were very friendly and attentive. We got free wings courtesy of previous reviewer Nicole and they were cooked perfectly and had great flavor. I also had the market burger which is delicious and my girlfriend had the wedge salad. Very happy that we finally stopped by this local spot. We will be back again soon!

  • Julie G.

    I was researching a spot for a large group for brunch and decided to stop in for lunch to check it out. I had the best pulled chicken sandwich ever! It was served on a cutting board with homemade potatoe chips. Kayleen my waitress was wonderful and the love the chic friendly atmosphere. A great find! I will be returning with our large group for sure!

  • Karn H.

    I axles ahead to see if they had a dog friendly patio and any happy hour! We got hooked up by riches he told us about the yelp special and I was in with the chicken wings. The food was great!!!' The polenta was the best! The good selection of craft beer was in a sweet little cooler! Loved it

  • Kathryn M.

    Please go to this place if you want to enjoy excellent food, atmosphere and drinks. Went with my family today and everything was excellent! Best cranberry Mojito and Margarita. The Market burgers were fantastic! The homemade potato chips and french fries fantastic! And whoever said the wings were anything but extraordinary is out of their mind! They were delicious! Hat's off to The Market By Jennifer's! Can't wait to go back and enjoy. What an excellent time!

    Way overpriced for okay food. Sorry, I was hoping it would be a new favorite spot but I'm going to have to pass on this one.

    By far the best restaurant I have been to in the valley. Stacy was awesome and so accommodating. The bread pudding was delicious.

  • John O.

    Fresh, well prepared and inventive food served in a bright, urban environment. Excellent service by well informed waitress. I chose the delicious shrimp and artichoke lemon risotto and my date had the Yellow fin Tuna salad which was sublime. We started with a fresh Asparagus soup that we shared and an absolutely fantastic chocolate bread pudding with caramel sauce. Very reasonably priced for the type of food served. Wholeheartedly recommend this gem.

  • Jennifer S.

    A fantastic add to the AZ dining scene! We stopped in today for wine/champagne and a cheese and charcuterie board. The service was fantastic - our server had a great personality and made the experience an even better one. The space is shabby chic and just fantastic with all of the doors/windows open on a beautiful afternoon. We'll definitely be back to try more food and to be our "go to" place for wine and cheese in the Valley.

    Stopped in for lunch and had a great experience. Parking is easy, right on the corner next to Crudo. I was quickly greeted by a very friendly server who took me over to the cooler to pick out my beer of choice. Ended up having a nice hefeweizen from Temecula, CA. My friend and I decided to split the cheese board, $14. They were out of the brie that comes with it, so they upped the size of the other cheese portions. The goat Humbolt Fog was my favorite. The board comes with dried fruit (similar to the kind you find in trail mix), spiced almonds (loved these) and a very interesting apricot compote (it actually tasted like sausage, but i think i liked it.) The atmosphere is cool and comfortable. It looks like they have some great grab-and-go options as well. I will definitely be back to try more things on the menu, but not when I'm looking for a meal under $12...

    I forgot to review this place right away but we tried this hidden gem awhile ago. All I can specifically remember was the amazing cheesey grits. They were so good we bought a bag to go so I could make at home.... Although I haven't even come close to recreating their deliciousness. Great atmosphere, great food and fantastic staff!

    Friendly casual atmosphere with delicious food at a good price. Good bar selections - margarita was outstanding. All four of us enjoyed our meals. Staff is very helpful. LOVE that it is not a chain restaurant.

  • Tj D.

    I love this place. It's such a wonderful atmosphere and they pay attention to the smallest details, like candles lined up the stairs as you enter and twine wrapped around your silverware. The service is outstanding, the ambience is a alluring, you must come and try it out as soon as possible!

  • Maya N.

    I am not sure even how to give this amazing and beautiful neighborhood spot the words it is due. The service, top notch, we had the kindest server who's only mission was to provide a great Sunday morning brunch experience. The food, made fresh to order with local and organic ingredients when possible. The atmosphere, sweet. Great music, not crowded, and unbelievable attention to detail. From the tags on the wine and beer bottles for sale in the market to the candy cane striped straws and the soft napkins mindfully wrapped with a tiny twine bow. They have a music and event schedule with outside seating. The location is off to the corner so drive around the plaza building if you cannot find it at first. I will be back and look forward to another amazing experience. Thank you.

    I am writing to sing the praises of the Niçoise salad. The seared tuna on it was flawlessly prepared, the haricot verts were perfectly al dente and I loved the touch of roasted tomatoes. And at $13 which may seem a little steep, it was a lot of food---I didn't finish it. The people that worked there were very friendly. It's a little hard to find, being at the back of the shopping center next to Crudo.

  • Janet M.

    Stopped by here on the fly one day to get to go dinners. Revelation! The food was so delicious we decided to come back for brunch. It's a menu brunch rather than a buffet. The food is so well prepared and the ingredients chosen with such care. The staff is very welcoming and knowledgeable. They have a full bar as well as a good wine and beer selection. We went back to try the dinner. I ordered risotto, which was as good as it gets. My companion ordered the salmon. Just delicious. They have a nice selection of desserts. We went with the Bananas Foster bread pudding. Many, many yums. I cannot recommend this place enough.

    I work right down the street from The Market and often have little down time in-between tanning clients to eat, so I love the convenience of stopping by The Market to pick up a delicious, gourmet meal from their "Grab N Go" section that offers REAL, quality meals that'll nourish and energize me for the remainder of my day. You won't find long lines here or in their parking lot. Parking is a cinch (no valet), which allows me to literally walk in and out in 5 minutes. It's one of the best attributes of The Market that I can greatly appreciate. A hungry girl is no pretty sight so time is of value when it comes to feasting. I'm also here every Sunday stocking up on my Evolution Juices for the week because The Market sells them at $4! That's the best price I've seen so far in the Valley, plus the girls and Richard always have a warm smile to share every time I walk in. The restaurant has an open air feel to it, great packaging for spices and delicious pastries. I've only had one opportunity to sit down and dine, but I'd love to explore their menu more.

    First time patrons, Sat afternoon, quaint place, fun and fresh decor. Good service. A bit confusing for a newbie, seeing that there was no direction as to if you are to wait to be seated, seat yourself or order at the counter. Great presentation of the meat nosh board and herb fries accompanied by iced coffee(that had no real strength to it) and was surprised that a restaurant like this didn't serve a simple syrup with the coffee, but packets of all types of sugar. Meat nosh board was tasty, Good variety, could use a bit more cheese and bread for all of the meat they give you, And the peach chutney was oishii(delicious)! Try, it won't hurt.

  • Tracey C.

    This is a great find and a great addition to the Arcadia area! My family stopped in for lunch and was very pleased with our meals. I had the Cuban which was great and my husband had their burger. You can tell they are using fresh ingredients and there is a lot of attention to detail in the entire experience. I am looking forward to coming back and trying their nosh boards! It seems like a great spot to bring a group of friends for drinks (great wine selection) and we def want to come back and check out brunch which they serve until 5pm- bonus! This place really deserves some love from CenPho people and I hope you all check it out!

    Food is awesome! Locally sourced, great service, country breakfast chic and they even play football on the big TV along side your aromatic surgars (locally made).

  • Michelle J.

    So happy to have this in the neighborhood! I've been there several times and not been disappointed once. I can see how Jennifer has been a long-time successful caterer. The Cuban sandwich is plentiful and delicious. The asparagus, burratta, and prosciutto salad is a nice light offering but still satisfying. Butternut squash soup hit the spot. I enjoyed the fresh shrimp po boy - the shrimp was not fried - which made it feel healthier. I'm not a huge fan of the nosh boards, the corn chips are nothing special and the combination is a bit weird. Do try the brownie cookies, you will not regret it.

  • Mike D.

    Amazing food and a great staff. Karleen is one of the employees and she always recommends the best items on the menu to eat. We also met Jennifer for the first time and she made the experience even better, very happy and made us enjoy our meal even more. S'mores board is a must try for desert.

    The Gaslight Square is on fire and this is another bright option to this strip mall. Why am I so hooked to The Market? They didn't copycat any typical new restaurants. All of their interiors are fastidious and tasteful (not just thrown up yesterday) and they definitely have the cafe vibe. I'm excited about the cheeseboard and charcuterie options plus happy hour. Baked goods are very yummy and quiche was gorgeous. Staff were extremely professional - even making sure that tidying up (sweeping) wasn't a bother to me. Thanks for the great option in our neighborhood! Looking forward to kicking back on your patio this spring. Folks, they also have ample parking... A commodity in Arcadia.

  • Jerrod K.

    I'm not one to fling around perfect ratings based on just one visit, but this place made such a great impression on me there was just no alternative. I had the salade niçoise and a side of the herb fries ... MY GOD SO TASTY. The salad had perfectly seared sashimi-grade yellowfin tuna, and the dressing was light and perfect. The fries ... I have no idea how they got the fries so crispy and delicious. After lunch I bought pretty much one of everything from their bakery display case ... their pastry chefs know what they're doing. I loved the French décor, too. The music was hit and miss though, but no big deal. Oh, it's not visible from the street, really. It's on the southwest corner of the strip mall. The main entrance faces south.

  • Catherine H.

    My husband and I came here with a groupon to try it for brunch. We were not disappointed! We both had the steak and eggs, which was savory and filling. We also both enjoyed a Bloody Mary that was made with homemade mix. We really enjoyed dining here and will be back!

    Trying some place new monthly. Friend chose Marketplace. Quaint, little restaurant on a Sat night. Seemed like the server was new. Bread board just ok. Wedge salad ok. Friend had risotto which she said was ok. I had ricotta gnocchi. Was light but also melting into other ingredients. Understand they are also good for breakfast/brunch. Dinner was nothing special.

  • Kevin W.

    Yet another fantastic new dining establishment along the Indian School corridor!!! My company hosted a small catered event at Jennifer's new cafe and everything was fantastic! All of our 40 guests were very happy with the food, service and overall atmosphere of the of this new cafe. Every effort was made to ensure our party was fully accommodated. The food was exceptional and very reasonably priced. Jennifer and her staff are truly trying to make an impression in their new cafe and it shows. I'm looking forward to adding this a one of my new favorite lunch spot and catering options!

  • Rae I.

    So it seems that the owner of this business is just as unprofessional as her employees! After my conversation with them on Wednesday, today I received a call from Jennifer and a voicemail that was largely sarcastic in tone, as well as unapologetic for her employee's behavior. Also in the voicemail was her distaste for my yelp review that she called "harsh". She does say "I apologize" at one point in a tone and verbiage that is clearly an "I'm sorry, I'm not sorry". "Hi Rae, this is Jennifer with Jennifer's catering... I would love to chat with you. I know that you chatted with Amanda yesterday and I see you had a "very large problem with that", so I'd like to talk to you about that. I apologize if she came across...um... harsh? But... uh, yeah... this yelp review is awfully harsh too. BUT, I think she was just going by the guidelines but, uh... obviously that was very (inaudible) to you so I'd like to discuss." Jennifer ends the message by leaving her number and an extremely curt "Thank you". How inappropriate can you get?!? The only reason you have my information is because I gave it your staff member before I realized what kind of a company I was dealing with. The information was given under the pretense that I wanted to hire you to cater an event, not call and complain about my very accurate, well deserved yelp review and subsequent review update. A tip: Don't call and leave voicemails complaining about yelp to the yelper who left it for you in the first place. How in the world do you have a successful business when you don't know the basics of customer service, hospitality and appropriate business behavior? I'd also like to add, if you had called and were actually professional, apologetic and genuinely concerned about "very large problem" & the poor experience I had in the first place, instead of your yelp reviews, I would have gladly changed/amended it to say that you called and cared. Instead, you shot yourself in the foot and now this is here... To anyone who is thinking of hiring this company, you've been warned! As for me, I've moved on and booked someone else.

    Loved this place, I had the seared yellowfin salad, and it was amazing. It's pricey but worth it . I would say to order it raw since I got it medium and it was cooked all of the say through, with no pink. It was still amazing, even over cooked.

  • Lisa C.

    First visit...all by myself. Sunday pre-evening, kid-free, errands done, glass of wine and a nosh desired. Drove by, saw a light crowd, a patio, and a bunch of motorcycles. Clearly not overly pretentious...so I stopped. I had a very attentive waiter, a lovely glass of wine, good butternut squash soup and an amazing salad with beets and pistachio vinegrette. Happiness on a patio! I look forward to a family dinner here to try the salmon :-)

  • Amanda R.

    I love the atmosphere & decor-- comfortable and lovely. Our service was excellent yet relaxed. However the food left soomething to be desired... during brunch a few weeks ago I tried the charcuterie board and the huevos rancheros. Although the former was delicious, the portions were little mini bites fit for a dollhouse! And I'm no huge eater! The latter, huevos rancheros, was just ok. The overeasy eggs were cooked perfectly, perched atop two thin crunchy tostada-like disks, and then smothered with thin red sauce. Sometimes simple is best, but in this case it would have benefited greatly from a little side of something...anything... The other folks in my party tried the quiche (pretty itty), the ricotta gnocchi with pancetta (there were seven gnocchi. Literally seven little pillows doused in SO much watery sauce), and the nicoise salad (the definite winner of the meal- nice size salad and fresh tuna). I'd like to give Jennifer's another try, but there are so many places to choose from these days...

    Went there for the first time and it was great! Great in every way. Darling setting, great friendly service. Lots of choices. Everything we ordered and everything we saw others receive were gorgeous! Our food was wonderful. Portions nice and prices reasonable. What more could you ask for? Thanks to everyone at Jennifers. We will be back!

    VERY excited about The Market by Jennifer's. As in, I tried it this past weekend, and oh, I'm already going back today. I was excited to see that the place was packed because I want this market to be around for a long time. The LOCATION is great. In the complex with Antique Gatherings, Poor Little Rich Girl and Zipps, Right next to Crudo, and facing 36th Street. They've taken limited exterior space, and managed to make a great outdoor patio (that doesn't face Indian School - yay!). INSIDE - ohemgee. Exposed ceiling, french-inspired chandeliers, and cafe tables. The devil is in the details, and they nailed it. Even the water beverage bar is on a french industrial table, while the order numbers for your table are made of solid wood with bold-font numbers. It feels provincial, trendy and local at the same time. I like a well-designed space. The SERVICE was great. Diners order at the counter and the food comes to you. As soon as we walked in, a server told us the process, gave us menus and told us to make ourselves comfortable at a table while we decided. This avoids a long line at the counter. While we sat and looked at the menu, we were served water and asked if we had questions. (Although this is an order at the counter cafe, we never had to get up to refill our water glasses. The servers were on top of this for us.) And we did have a question - which of the MENU items do we try because they all sounded ridiculously good. Traditional lunch and dinner entrees and "nosh boards." We went for the Molten Fondue Nosh Board because we were on a diet (I kid, I kid.) Fresh fruit, locally-made sausage, bread and pretzel bites on a great wooden board with a small cruet of fondue. It was a prefect light lunch for two. And it was so good that when we finished the board, I was honestly tempted to drink the few remaining drops of the fondue straight. (Maybe they should offer this as a cocktail "molten fondue, neat.") We didn't have dessert or pastries, but the looked worth the splurge. Last but not least, the "GRAB N' GO " A fridge of prepared entrees that you can buy and pop in the oven at home. I was excited to see entrees in a range of palates - sophisticated choices for an adult get-together to comfort food for the kiddos. (I hear the mac n' cheese is so addictive you should warn your arteries.) My only point of contention (every review has one) is that they are closed two days - Mondays and Tuesdays. Deal breaker? Nah. I'm hoping they're testing the waters and might compromise on one day for those of us hoping to pop in to grab an entree or two for dinner. So clearly, I'm a fan. I will probably become a Norm-like regular. Cen Pho / Arcadia was crying for a place like this - casual, easy with exceptional food. Yay. Yay. Yay.

    This place has great potential, I am going lightly and regarding it has opening weekend pains, however at least 4 front of the house employees working and only 4 people in there (my friend and I included in the 4) I expected clearer direction. I will go back a second time to form my final opinion. So below will be my first impression. I walked into to who I think my be one of the owners, there is no signage to indicate that you order at a cash register and not sit down. (I personally think they should reconsider this format) He starts handing me menus and telling me specials and I don't even know what I am doing. So we walked off and sat down at a table since no one told us to order at the cash register and the giant chalk board when you walk in has a monthly calendar versus directions with arrows that say "seat yourself" and "order this way" Anyway, we sit down and all and there is one other table in there right next to us. I server is talking to them so we assumed that she would help us next. After sitting there for 5 mins we finally figured out that we are suppose to order at the register. I don't mind this format as long as it is done efficiently. My only suggestion is that you make sure the customer knows what to do and put the deserts and some deli/cold items BEFORE the register, along with the jams over by the sitting area. We order, get a number and sit down. We ordered and split the Nosh (cheese board) and Cuban pork sandwich. Both were very good and my only comment would be to include a jam or honey with the blue cheese. However the sandwich was flavored perfectly and found it rather delightful. It was delivered by a server and another girl who must be learning to be a server, they had a discussion on how to present and we had to sit there and wait to eat while we were used as training and the girl in training was clearly nervous and the girl instructing was say things like "your going to have to learn" it was rather uncomfortable. I would recommend writing down what you want to say to describe the food and straight read it. But that's me. Anyway, overall the food was good and if they improve the flow of the restaurant and front of the house service they will crush Arcadia. I will be back in a couple weeks to give it another try and I am looking forward to trying their dinner with some slight spins on comfort food.

    My wife and I went a couple of Wednesday's ago and had the vegetable board, gnocci, and flourless chocolate cake. The food was all pretty good, however, it was a little tight the way the tables were arranged and a bit loud off on and on from a wine group that they do in the middle of the week but otherwise great atmosphere. Also, the chocolate cake was dense, very chocolaty and really good.

    Finally got a chance to come I here. Been eyeing this place since it started being built out. Although we came here for desert and coffee only, their dinner menu looked liked it has some delicious meals. The desert here was top notch. We had an Apple bourbon stack and a brown butter brownie chocolate chip cookie. Some of the best and more unique deserts I've ever had. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is very laid back. The waitress was telling us about their happy hour and how you can see the sunset from the patio tables. We plan on coming back for happy hour and dinner to see the sunset. I love discovering new local restaurants like this. Come by, check this place out, treat yourself to some good food, support local business, and make sure to tell your friends :)

  • George K.

    The concept is a bit different. You order at the counter and service brings the food to you. They just appeared to have opened. My wife and wanted something casual for dinner which this place provided. At the end of the day, restaurants are about the food and this place has excellent food. Great cheese platters and $20 steak. Once this place gets going, it is going to be one of the Acadia go to spots. If you are a foodie who likes casual joints. You will love this place.

    I wish Jennifer's was closer to my house as I would be there all of the time! The food is delicious , the ambiance is great - love sitting on the patio with a glass of wine and a "nosh" board watching the sunset - and all of the staff are very friendly and helpful!

  • Dillon S.

    The market by Jennifer. My first time here, and I get to tour the kitchen with the GM. So clean. I ordered the wedge salad to start, it's a Iceberg wedge, point Reyes blue cheese, bacon. Hard to go wrong with this salad. I also ordered the rock shrimp poboy. So good. The shrimp were cooked to about medium rare. A chewy, hard crumbly bread was the rock that held all the goodies inside and gave the sandwich more body. What was just awesome was the pickled and roasted pig trotter. Freaking awesome. It came with a light green salad with a citrus vin. So tender, juicy and fattening. But well worth it. You can also grab cold food to go pre made. Some you can heat up yourself. I went the other way and took home an awesome imperial stout. (yes, they have beer and wine to go!) I can't wait to take my girlfriend in to try the meat and cheese boards and have a bottle of wine.

  • Christina F.

    I live right around the corner from this place and have been excitingly awaiting it to open. I had friends in town for the weekend and so we decided this place would be perfect for a late Sunday lunch. I was very impressed when I walked in. They put a lot of thought and effort in creating an awesome atmosphere. We ordered the butternut squash soup, a burger, yellow tail tuna salad, chicken schnitzel sandwich and the Cuban sandwich and shared everything. The soup and chicken sandwich was good, the tuna on the salad seemed off and we couldn't put our finger on what it was about the consistency that just seemed off, I didn't like the Cuban but everyone else said it was just OK and we all thought the burger was horrible. Everything on the burger was bland except the burnt onion. The meat had no flavor AT ALL. I feel that there was a lot of effort put into the atmosphere and the menu was an afterthought. I doubt I will be going back.

    The Market By Jennifer's is one of my recent favorites. Today I tried their special of the day: steamed mussels in a coconut curry (I think) sauce. Delicious! Service is always very friendly. Wine list is short but well thought out. I have tried a couple of their nosh boards and the salad nicoise before and they were all very good. Next time I will try to leave some room for dessert!

    We were excited to see this place move into our hood. It seemed hip and a little more upscale than most of the local spots. Kind of like Beckett's Table. But it's not as cool as Beckett's. The only similarity is the lack of veg menu options. There are veg appetizers, but no entrees. All the same stuff we see on other new and old restaurant menus. I guess that's the thing to do - open a restaurant and copy other menus. Boring. And in our case disappointing. If they are going to copy we need a new upscale restaurant that copies and elaborates on Flower Child's menu.

    Unique, friendly little place with delicious food and great take-home meals as well. Service is exceptional and most everyone will find something they love here. Saturday nights are even better with live music from Daylon Greer of Elvis Before Noon. The nosh boards and dessert are must-try items.

    The food was very good but the live entertainment was so loud (Saturday at lunchtime) that is was nigh unto impossible to hear what others at the table were saying unless they leaned forward and shouted, which was very annoying and certainly detracted from our party's experience.

    We were part of a large gathering of about 25 friends brought together to honor a newly wed couple. The restaurant did not miss a beat; truly organized. Tables were nicely arranged and the staff was highly efficient, despite a milling, high-density crowd through which they needed to thread themselves. Appetizers, salad, main course (four choices) and dessert were delights to the palate. Even though there were other tables occupied by diners unrelated to our party, the setting was such that they were not obtrusive. The beer and wine selections were ample but not overwhelmingly large, yet selected with a keen eye. A tiny wine bar (perhaps they served cocktails) was tucked away in the corner. The decor was ecclectic -- a colonial style colonnaded veranda connecting through French doors to one large interior room graced by what appeared to be three Czechoslaviakian crystal chandeliers, a large-screen tv, chalk board menus on the wall, an expansive serving portal to the very large kitchen and a wall of glass-doored refrigeration units -- and yet despite this unusual collage of appliances and fixtures, the ambiance of the space was very pleasant. We all could not have been more satisfied. This place unquestionably is a winner.

    I've never written a yelp review before, mainly because I've never really been compelled to. Either the place is great and everyone knows it, or it wasn't that good. Let me tell you though, people need to know about The Market By Jennifer's. I'm sitting on the patio enjoying one of the better views of an AZ sunset I've ever seen, while sipping on delicious wine that is half off (during happy hour only of course), and chowing down on this amazing chips and dip plate (complimentary during HH!!). Karlene, our waitress, was extremely knowledgable and attentive. How is this place not packed?! Truly a hidden Arcadia gem. If you don't know, now you know. Get here.

    Sorry, Jennifer'S. Stick to catering where you don't have a customer service component. A service based business should at least require staff to interact with customers. If your staff can glare at customers they can at least fill water glasses.

    My new favorite place! Located in the Gaslight Shopping Center in Arcadia next to Crudo (its in the back on the corner). Cool, casual atmosphere and very affordable for the kind of food they serve. I've been there multiple times now and everything was incredibly delicious. I went with a friend and we shared a cheese board and had the most divine asparagus soup. Was so impressed went again this time with my husband and he loved it as much as me (he raved about his risotto) and I had the Cuban sandwich and then we splurged on some kind of decadent chocolate bread pudding. Ingredients are fresh, menu is varied and interesting, service was great and place is very clean! This is worth checking out!

    Great place, great food. Can't wait to go back. However, we're not sure about the use of the apostrophe in the restaurant's name though. Any thoughts?

    I don't yelp much but I want to see these guys do well. The food is great. The atmosphere is really cute. Loving the nosh boards and the unique wine selection. Fun place to relax with cheese and a drink. Try the chips.

    I hired Jennifer's Catering for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary party, and they were fantastic. They made everything effortless for me, so I could enjoy the party. They were always looking for ways to help me out, and ways to make my guest's experiences even more enjoyable. The food was wonderfully delicious, the bartender was friendly and went above and beyond, and the rest of the crew was just as friendly and professional. They certainly exceeded my expectations and I would definitely hire them again.

  • Janet N.

    Cute space and decor - this place has potential. The only reason I am giving this place a low rating because the food was not very good. I ordered the Shrimp Po-Boy, it came out cold and the complete opposite of what a Shrimp Po-Boy should taste like. The shrimp was small and cold, the sandwich basically tasted like a salad in a stiff baguette. I was so disappointed, I wanted to cry because I was looking forward to fried shrimp in a warm baguette. For $11 I would expected something amazing. Definitely not coming here again :(

    Jennifer's did our wedding and we, and our guests, could not have been happier with the amazing food, service, and attention to detail. I have also used her for several corporate events and my clients always appreciate that little extra that comes from the experience. Professional, classy, delicious, perfect.

    My husband took me to this place last week and what a delight it was! We went for Sunday brunch. From the moment you walk in, I loved the industrial/rustic feel with the beautiful chandeliers that hung.. 5 of them to be exact. The place is not very big, but that only adds to the charm and cozy feeling. The staff was superb, sharing information about local fresh ingredients used and we even got to taste a special dish that one of them was photographing! The food was phenomena!! My kids are not big "kid meal" type kids, they enjoying eating what the adults enjoy eating and my family felt very welcomed here. Everything we ordered came in generous proportions, very fresh, incredibly delicious, and excellent ingredients... just down right fantastic. I love quaint places like this where the chef comes around to your table and talks to you, it just adds to the whole dining experience! If you are looking for something new that will excite your taste buds, come to this relaxed setting and enjoy fantastic food!

    Jennifer's did an amazing job catering my wedding. They went above and beyond and took care of the food, rentals, even coordinating live trees for decoration! People are still talking about our hors d'oeuvres stations, (a innovative alternative to the usual buffet), each one a different theme that allowed our guests to graze all night! I would love to use Jennifer's again in the future, one word: flawless!

    I live very close by and was really hoping Jennifer's would be my new favorite. Although I was sadly disappointed with the service and confused by my meal, I plan to return to try them out for breakfast. I was sat by my waitress who came back 10-15 minutes later asking if I was ready to order, yet she hadn't given me a menu or offered me a beverage. I ordered the herb seasoned fries (delicious! ) and the pork Cuban sandwich. Someone else dropped off my food, and my waitress never came back. I had to flag people down as they passed to ask for things like a refill and for my tab. The "Cuban" resembled nothing even close to a traditional cuban sandwich. I thought I received a bbq pork sandwich someone else ordered. It tasted mostly of vinegar (from the pickled shallots) and bbq sauce. The bun was overly charred, black and burned. They were really busy though and all new businesses experience growing pains so I will definitely be back to test out other items on their menu. There was a blond gal who I assumed was either the owner or perhaps a front of house manager that was remarkably friendly. I gave them 3 stars for now and hope to increase it after my next visit! Major plus......pet friendly patio!

    I decided to try this restaurant based on the good reviews on Yelp. I was meeting a friend for brunch on Sunday the day before Memorial Day. I arrived a little early because I wasn't sure where it was. It is located in Gaslight Square Shopping Center at the back. I suggested that they have an arrow to point where the place was located. I called my friend as I knew she would need good directions to find the place. It was very quiet when I got there so I got good service. When my friend arrived we ordered. She had a cheese omelette and I ordered the vegetable quiche. Her omelette came with shoestring fries and my vegetable quiche came with a salad. She said her dish was outstanding and my quiche melted in my mouth. It was so good. I would like to return as the service was good and there are many items I would like to try. I highly recommend this new place. They also have a Happy Hour as well.

    Amazing green godess salad--I had mine with chicken & my husband had his with Salmon...their proteins were perfectly cooked (tender & juicy) and seasoning was on point! Had an order of grilled chicken wings as well which were soooooo yummy. They had live music too! A small, cozy & awesome place--Will definitely be back!

    (Lyrics - Hoobastank - The Reason) I'm not a perfect yelper There's many things I wish I could have tried But I continue learning I always want to try the things you cook And so I have to say before I go That I just want you to know I've found a reason to stay To eat the meals I want to try A reason to start over new At The Market by Jen's This place definitely is cute and lovely. I came for dinner with a friend. The place was pretty slow since we came early on a weeknight. We both order a couple of wines to start. For our appetizers we shot for the Heirloom Tomatoes & Watermelon. Great start I must say, the sweet cherry tomatoes and acidic oranges neutralized the bitter arugula while the watermelons subtle taste eased it all up! For our entrees we ordered the Organic Chicken and the Ricotta Gnocchi. I didn't really care for the Chicken entree, it was pounded down flat breaded and seasoned and topped with a mixed salad. I didn't really get much out of it since I felt the Sherry Vinaigrette was too light; I wanted a stronger creamier sauce! The Ricotta Gnocchi was the better of the 2 entrees. The dumplings were soft and warm to the bite while the roast pork brought a wonderful surprise but welcoming protein to the meal. Overall, I enjoyed my visit to The Market. Our service was stellar and the place was charming. In the end, ambiance made my night, but for me the food reminded me of a wedding dinner. - Enjoy!

    I've had to run by this place and it's amazing smelling food when I do Crossfit at Sol. It's torture. So my friends and I decided to try this cute little trendy delicious place! First, let's say the service from Youlanda was OUTSTANDING! She was so sweet and down to earth, a great quality for a server. She did amazing at explaining all the items on the menu, she gave us her favorite item in each category of the menu. You could tell she really enjoyed and had a passion for the food served. We started with the chicken tortilla soup. It had incredible flavors! Creamy, fresh and bold!! (Oh and we got the yelp check in-free grilled wings! Yum!) We also ordered the Charcuterie board, the cheese board and the bread board and split the items. It was too much food for two people! But we really wanted to try it all!! We enjoyed all of the meats and cheeses! I can't wait to come back and try more items! My friends ordered the yellow fin salad, which looked fresh and they had no complaints!! My friend who has been to Nice, France had the yellow fin nicoise and said it was on point :) We also ordered the Mille Feuille. It was sweet and tart and the panna cotta. Everything was awesome! Thank you for the wonderful service Youlanda!

    I love this place for lunch and brunch on Sunday. The food and vibe is perfection. Only complaint is the live music --not conducive to conversation. In the cooler months you can sit outdoors to avoid the music.

    First time there. I will be back. I had a daily special which was a procutto raviloli with mushrooms and potatoes. OUTSTANDING meal. Then my wife and I ordered dessert. Lemongrass something or other with mangoes and toasted coconut, and a date shake.... OH MY. Nice place, good wine selection, draft beer, great service, very good food. What's not to love.

    What a charming place to grab a meal! I came here on a Friday night with my friends. I fully expected a wait, from reading other reviews, but to my delight there was none. We started off with the bread and butter board ($4). It came with a few slices of bread, including a pretzel bread, a jalapeno cheese bread, and another kind. The breads were all great and tasted freshly baked. The butter it came with was delicious! If only it had been a bit softer, it would have spread so nicely on the bread. Two of my friends shared the cheese and vegetable boards for their meals. The veggie board came with a wide variety of veggies, with bread and chips to eat them with. It was also served with two little cups of dressing. The cheese board had some different cheese, also with bread and chips, and on the sides little cups of dried fruit and some type of seeds (sunflower maybe?). They seemed to enjoy them! Although I heard the blue cheese was a bit strong. For my entree I got the roasted chicken. After my first bite, I knew I loved it. The chicken was served at a great temperature - very warm! It was so juicy - the juiciest piece of white meat I've ever had. My only dislike was that they sprinkled some peppercorns on top and those were REALLY strong peppercorns. I had to pick them off bc I didn't like the taste. Also, they included a sauce on top of the dish that was a bit too salty. Towards the end of eating the salt became a little overwhelming. I liked the dish a lot, but if I came again I'd probably try something else bc they had lots of interesting stuff on the menu! tip: it's kind of hard to find, located in the back corner of a little strip mall center type place. another tip is that they sell bundles of local veggies here for $25. so you can come every Friday and pick up a box of local veggies if you want. another tip: they serve brunch until 5 pm on the weekends, awesome for late risers (like me)!

    What a refreshing afternoon. Had never heard of The Market. Drove by, it looked friendly and so happy we stopped. Greeted by Caleb who had terrific menu suggestions. Bacon-wrapped prawns with fry bread and sauce; cheese platter with pears, local honey and homemade crackers; and a fresh warm bread and butter assortment. Then came the tortilla soup. Wow. Just wonderful. Creamy tomato base, gentle seasoning with succulent cheese and shredded chicken. Yum. A leisurely afternoon of nibbling and chat. Owner Jen made sure we were happy and Richard came by the table and talked about local resources. Just a comfy time. Couldn't recommend the total experience more highly.

  • Irene V.

    What an adorable, curious place! Everything I'd heard about The Market is true + infinity! On the very corner of Arcadia's Gaslight Square is a hybrid dine-in restaurant with curbside catering. (If you're short on time prepared food is available for quick "grab and go".) I popped in for a speed lunch with my Yelper friend Su-Shien and was *delighted* by the food, service and decor. Think fancy pants (chandeliers sprinkle the room) with rustic touches (cord is used to tie silverware). The space is intimate yet casual. Two top tables can readily be combined for larger groups. I would love to return for dining IN the kitchen. That's right: There's a bigger table where the magic happens. Friends of mine have eaten there and raved about it. (Soon!) The food is made for sharing. Nosh boards range from meat, veges, cheese, fondue and (get this) plain ole' bread and butter. My first experience was with the charcuterie (meat) board. The menu doesn't do justice to what is delivered. Delicate sides accompany prosciutto, sopprasata, bresola and spanish chorizo. Thinly sliced wafers of bread can be layered with violet mustard, apple chutney and pickled shallots. We made our selection while enviously eyeing the table next to us. ....where The Very Jennifer was seated! She's a breath of fresh air! So sweet it (almost) hurts. You'll love her (and everyone else that works there). My friend and I split the Roasted Pork Cuban Sandwich. The pork melted away, deliciously prepared and served on a brioch bun with a side of sea salt chips. Generously sized we were very happy with our portions Happy Hour! *Every* Day They Are Open. (3-6pm) - 12 oz beers $2 - Well drinks $5 - Wine by glass 1/2 off Love, love, love this place!

    Great meal! Great service. This is a small but eclectic place to enjoy a good meal for a fair price. They pride themselves on using local sources for food. We enjoyed everything we ordered for dinner. The watermelon salad was refreshing. The grilled calamari appetizer had a great flavor with a kick to it. For my main entree I had the Ricotta Gnocchi. Yum! Amazing flavors. Kyle our server was excellent. Attentive and engaging in conversation. Definitely will be back to try other creations as this restaurant.

    We dined here for Valentine's Day. It was great but a few things stuck out. My boyfriend had called ahead to make sure they had their regular menu too- which they did but they failed to mention it. The maitre de also placed us next to another couple when we came in and the place was far from empty- we asked to move tables and lucky we did because it never filled up. Otherwise, the food was amazing and our server was great. We really enjoyed the wine pairing with each course. I think we would try it again.

    We waited an hour for our food. The "hot" wings were flavorless and not hot at all; they were so disgusting they tasted like they took the wings from the fridge and dumped them in the fryer, didn't even taste like anything but chicken and oil; I didn't eat them so they were taken off my bill. The steak and eggs were ordered medium well it came out rare and had to be sent back; they remade them and my friend ate it. (This was her 4th time at the market and said this is the 4th time of having bad service/bad food) her other experience was when the quiche was frozen in the middle. The beer comes in an 18 oz. glass but is only poured halfway so it feels like they cheat you when you look at the glass when ordering a 12oz. beer, I ordered a bud light which was $5 I don't even want to know how much their craft beers are. Our waitress was nice but she was overworked and running around to other guests most of the time so our table couldn't ask for anything promptly. It's just not a place I will ever visit again, and telling friends and family not to even bother. I have been contacted by a manager about my review and he tries blaming me about our party size and that I didn't have to pay for wings, and asked if I could change my stars because I like the band. Excuse me, your band has nothing to do with: food prepared wrong, disgusting wings, overpriced menu, and lack of good timely service. My one star is for the band. And yelp doesn't allow zero stars.

    Solid 3.5*, I will go back maybe it is 4* (I'm stingy with the star rating). Good neighborhood spot for brunch, especially of our looking for laid back and not the bottomless drink and loud party spot. well seasoned and executed dishes. Their outdoor seating is well thought out, shaded and was pleasant for a warm June morning. I will have to go back and check out their dinner service. Our server was great, seemed like someone who would really take care of the regulars and great service overall. I wanted the coffee to be a little better.

    Came in for lunch based on previous reviews and am glad I did. Had the wedge salad and chicken...cannot express how delicious and fresh the food was. Certainly wish we had a "go to" spot like this is N Scottsdale. I am a big fan of Becket's Table but would be just as happy eating here and this place is certainly a little more reasonable. Not only was the food awesome but the server took the time to explain their process in the kitchen which I find not only a wonderful personal touch but as a foodie enjoy learning new ways to prepare food. Do yourself a favor and stop in, you will not regret this truly pleasurable dining experience.

    Oh my!!! This place knocked my socks off!! I am so glad we stopped by this evening for dinner. I was aprehensive at first because it was nearly empty, but that changed as soon as we were dazzled by the amazing customer service from the staff. My husband and I ordered drinks from their menu. He had a Moscow Mule, and it was tasty. I ordered an Old Fashioned, but it was a little to old fashioned for me...lol.. not throwing shade to the bartender, but I guess I really didn't know what I wanted. She recommended this amazing drink to replace the first one, I can't recall the name of it, but it had ginger beer and I believe it was a Margarita of some kind. Bomb!! I am super obessed with that drink. For dinner, hubby order The Market Burger, which was very nice on the eyes and his stomach. It was huge, a great value for the price of $11. I had the Pan Seared Salmon with sticky rice and boy choy with a balsamic reduction and mushrooms....it was damn good! Seasoned so well, and the fish was cooked to perfection! Sorry we didn't take pics, the food looked and smelled so good, it didn't have a chance. I am not really much of a desert person, but I was so impressed, I ordered the brownie with rocky road ice cream and it was garnished with mint!! Woo chile, listen I ate all of it...super satisfied and I am a fan!! Will definitely be back sooner than later!

    What a great little neighborhood place! The minute you walk in you feel like a friend. The food is fresh and innovative without being pretentious.

  • Krista N.

    Welp, mark this as my new favorite place. We were waiting for the dust to settle a bit and decided it was finally time to visit this new spot. Wow is all I have to say. The decor and atmosphere are great, the service was genuine and some of the best I have had and the food....ohhhhhhh the food. I'm not one to over eat, but I left in pain with how full I was and it was worth it. We started off with the Bloody board -delicious and simple. I ordered the quiche which had chorizo, gruyere and spinach. Amazing! It was a good sized piece with a little salad along side it. I would eat that again a million times. Fiance had the steak and eggs. HOLY SHIT. I just about orgasmed over the flavor of this dish. I have never had anything so delicious and she only serves it on the weekends. If I had unlimited funds, I would eat that every day - morning noon and night. SERIOUSLY. We decided, based on a recommendation, to get the banana's foster nutella bread pudding. We were like, "oh we are full let's save this for later". NOPE. Ate it right there like fat asses...and we ate all of it. There wasn't a bite left and I even upended the caramel container into my mouth. Yeah, that good. I loved our server. They have a little market area with local cheeses and products and flavored salts. He sat with me patiently while I tried every flavor and explained to me why he liked each one, what he used them for and why they tasted the way they did. Another server came up and explained the cheese buying/making process from the local dairies. I freaking loved it there and would return any day for more.

  • Pepper T.

    I've only heard positive things about the Chef of Jennifer's. She is a well trained chef and has worked in many very prestigious restaurants. I came here for restaurant week and whoever prepared the food clearly wasn't Jennifer. The best dish of the six we tried was the soup and sammich appetizer. The soup had little taste and seemed like half and half with pureed squash that was decorated nicely. The sandwich was tasty Grilled Brioche Bread that was stuffed with quality cheese, local honey and fresh pears. My husband had Arborio Rice that was still hard and not very creamy or tasty it was very flat and dry. My second Course was Patagonia Salmon over a Sunchoke Puree that was getting broken up by a big puddle of oil. The Fish was topped with not so tasty combination of raw tomatoes, and brown chunks of garlic and some fresh basil. The Fish was edible. My husband's Fresh Pasta Dish seemed like boxed spaghetti instead of fresh pasta that was prepared mushy and seemed sort of watery. At this point we were checked on and my husband informed the waiter about Hard Arborio Rice and Mushy Pasta. The waiter seemed sorry about that and walked away. I was hoping that desserts would be redeeming but for me they were the worst part of the meal. My favorite dessert is Lemon Meringue Pie so I was hoping the Mason Jar Lemon Meringue would be delicious. The Meringue wasn't Meringue but tasted like that gooey jarred Marshmallow Stuff called "Fluff" It was terrible to me. Nobody goes out for dinner and expects to receive jarred "Fluff".My husband was hoping for an apple Tarte Tatin. You can tell by the photo he didn't receive a Tarte Tatin. I didn't taste his dessert because I was too grossed out by the Marshmallow Fluff I just had but he said the dough was really weird. Maybe this is a really good sandwich place and not a dinner place? Maybe i hit this place on an off night and it's a possibility you might get a better prepared meal. I don't know. This was more disappointing to me than the not so fresh sushi I had last week somewhere. Jennifer needs to taste the food her cook prepares before it's too late. I will not return.

    I am giving this place 5 stars before I even finish my meal. I had bid on a catered wine tasting meal from an auction for the SW Ctr for HIV/Aids fundraiser. The meal started out with happy hour cocktails and then progressed into Prosecco and the BEST EVER scallop and citrus I have ever tasted. Then there was a green goddess salad and Pinot Grigio, with crisp thin green beans, zucchini and broccoli...so fresh! Then an amazing corn bisque and caramelized popcorn. Who knew? Salmon in a red wine with Pinot noir and later, a filet mignon and Cabernet Sauvignon. Even though I have a Type A blood type, I thoroughly enjoyed the tender meat and willingly am taking the consequences. Meanwhile live music from Korbe Canida is taking the enjoyment factor to another level (in addition to the varied lovely artwork which changes every few weeks). Dessert was white chocolate mousse and the caramelized popcorn and raspberry tart. Ok we have all agreed coming back is mandatory for brunch and dinner...great wine selection and very impressive quality of food. "Definitely come back" "food was way beyond""very impressive"..."a hidden treasure" from attendees. I need to repeat this event. Family and work events, as well as any catering, in the future, I'm sold.

    Jennifer, Jennifer how wonderful are thee. I might be dating myself when I disclose that I've had the pleasure of eating Jennifer's cooking when she was starting out in catering. At least, I think it's the same Jennifer. Her food was scrumptious then as it is scrumptious now. And creative. And fresh. The location is a bit hard to find but once in, the interior is delightful. I hope her place success because of the location and she starts to have loyal costumer and a cult following. The kind of place that spreads by word of mouth and people from the neighborhood who Become regulars there all know each other one way or another. A bit of a Friend's place. Just by chance, when Irene V. and I were there, Jennifer herself was there giving an interview to New Times- ever friendly Yelpers we introduced ourselves and Jennifer was equally friendly to us. We had ordered the charcuterie nosh board to share and she generously gifted us with an order of her famous roasted pork Cuban sandwich which we furiously said she didn't have to- but I mean, we're Yelpers and we love food- so once arrived, we helpfully enjoyed the sandwich, exclaiming over the robust flavor! Even without the unexpected gift, I would still write a 5 star review as like I had previously written, I loved Jennifer's food when she was strictly a caterer. Back then she had said she wanted to have a restaurant and I am happy for her her dream has come true. And I wish her many years of continued success!

    Happened by this hidden gem and decided to stop for dinner. They have live music and they just started all day happy hour on Thursdays. I had the beef tenderloin which was made perfectly! Also the wedge salad which is made with butter lettuce instead of iceberg. I like that much better. Recommend and will return. The rest of the menu is very interesting.

    Get the gnocchi. The waitress described it as pillows of happiness and she is 100% correct. We went for a quick bite after a long week of work and it met all my wants. Quiet, friendly, comforting food. Will have to go back when I have time to relax with a cocktail and nosh board. That is what the neighboring tables were doing and it looked perfect.

  • Stacey H.

    I really enjoyed a date night at The Market. When we walked in, my first impression was that it was small and the tables were super close together, however, my initial trepidation was quickly put to rest when we were greeted by super server Kyle. She was amazing! Very knowledgeable and all-around fun. The place was buzzing on a Saturday night, so I would definitely recommend reservations. Super secret info - the nosh boards are broken down by meat/cheese/veggie, but they can put something together for you if you want to try some of the various elements and not just opt for a single-stream board. And - though this may not seem like a big deal - our food was timed perfectly after our appetizer and the food was HOT. Not heat-lamp-hot-plate hot, but hot food like it was just perfectly prepared and brought to our table. I thought that was really impressive. I had the salmon, which was lovely and my husband had the gnocchi, which he devoured. My only recommendation? Dim the lights a bit once it's dark outside. it was still fairly bright throughout our meal and a bit of ambiance might have been nice. Otherwise, perfection. We'll be back.

    I am so happy such a beautiful and intriguing dining experience exists in the neighborhood I was raised in. I am always excited to see gems like this pop up, especially if they are in walking distance from my home! I've been to The Market twice now and each visit has been lovely. The service is both kind and casual, pricing is outstanding, and the overall vibe is warm and unique. I say "unique", due to the space's ability to shine within Phoenix's all too familiar stripmall culture. Something that is incredibly difficult to execute out here. Both visits I have ordered the nosh boards, which in my opinion seem to be their signature offering. I've had the charcuterie, as well as their fondue board and each is stunning in display and just delicious. The flavors of the meats and accompaniments blend perfectly, especially combined with their prosecco. Just perfect! My friend ordered the artichoke risotto and that too was amazing (not mushy or bland). What I value the most about The Market is their knowledge in creating a complete experience for the customer. There's a certain low key flair I appreciate, from the decor to the artisan products they offer. Can't wait to visit for brunch!

    The food here is always fresh and amazing! The gnocchi is my favorite, but the tuna nicoise salad and Cuban sandwich are also very good -- as are the soups. Note: if you get the Cuban sandwich, request that they put it on plate -- it's very hard to eat on the cutting board they serve it on (the top of my bun fell on the floor, LOL).

    Wonderful neighborhood bistro with real community spirit. They approached me about doing a food bank find raiser and the nopales frites they created for the event were so popular they continued to keep them as an ongoing fundraiser. We need more great places like this! Be sure to try the Superior-tini (jalapeño laced, made with legally harvested Superior prickly pears) while you're there!

    So I was a little hesitant about coming here because I didn't see any great reviews on google and menu prices were high. We get there and it literally took over an hour to get our food. I ordered a bread board and nachos. Bread board was good which is why I gave 2 stars but the nachos...Geeze they should not be called nachos I paid $6 for a tiny bowl of potatoe chips with very gross, COLD cheese (if I could even call it cheese) I have a pic attached so you can see for yourself. I only ate like 2 chips and had my friends try too, they weren't pleased. My friend ordered wings which tasted like plain chicken and they were suppose to be spicy. Those were also not hot. Another friend ordered steak and eggs medium and got rare. I do give props to the waitress she tried really hard to fix the situation, but often it took her a while to even get to the table which is why I think our food took so long. would not recommend this place, overpriced and food is not good.

    Wonderful Sunday Brunch! We arrived as a group of 12 around 1:00 pm. We were seated quickly, welcomed generously, and brought coffee and drinks quickly. All around, everyone agreed the food was top-notch. And we sampled a wide range of offerings. The eggs were amazingly fresh tasting, and served on top of enchiladas, as well as other dishes. The fresh tuna on the niscoise salad was rare and delicious. Etc., etc. The service was incredibly attentive, friendly and helpful. When my order for chilequilas was mixed up, it was corrected in just a few minutes, so I wasn't left behind to finish last. And the server gave me a free cookie to acknowledge his mistake. For which I felt he redeemed himself. I would recommend this jewel of restaurant without reservation (pun intended)!

    Love this little hidden Gem in Arcadia off Indian school. Has a cute interior and outdoor patio that has been dog friendly. My dog has always been given a bowl of water, on top of that Iv yet to have had bad service. Everyone has been lovely and I get the sense they enjoy working here. Now to the food. It's fresh and much of it to my understanding is locally grown. The menu is not overwhelming so what is on it has been outstanding. They used to serve breakfast during week but sadly now it's only on weekends. They often have live music on some week nights and during brunch on Sundays.

    The Market By Jennifer's is one of my recent favorites. Today I tried their special of the day: steamed mussels in a coconut curry (I think) sauce. Delicious! Service is always very friendly. Wine list is short but well thought out. I have tried a couple of their nosh boards and the salad nicoise before and they were all very good. Next time I will try to leave some room for dessert!

    This place has great potential, I am going lightly and regarding it has opening weekend pains, however at least 4 front of the house employees working and only 4 people in there (my friend and I included in the 4) I expected clearer direction. I will go back a second time to form my final opinion. So below will be my first impression. I walked into to who I think my be one of the owners, there is no signage to indicate that you order at a cash register and not sit down. (I personally think they should reconsider this format) He starts handing me menus and telling me specials and I don't even know what I am doing. So we walked off and sat down at a table since no one told us to order at the cash register and the giant chalk board when you walk in has a monthly calendar versus directions with arrows that say "seat yourself" and "order this way" Anyway, we sit down and all and there is one other table in there right next to us. I server is talking to them so we assumed that she would help us next. After sitting there for 5 mins we finally figured out that we are suppose to order at the register. I don't mind this format as long as it is done efficiently. My only suggestion is that you make sure the customer knows what to do and put the deserts and some deli/cold items BEFORE the register, along with the jams over by the sitting area. We order, get a number and sit down. We ordered and split the Nosh (cheese board) and Cuban pork sandwich. Both were very good and my only comment would be to include a jam or honey with the blue cheese. However the sandwich was flavored perfectly and found it rather delightful. It was delivered by a server and another girl who must be learning to be a server, they had a discussion on how to present and we had to sit there and wait to eat while we were used as training and the girl in training was clearly nervous and the girl instructing was say things like "your going to have to learn" it was rather uncomfortable. I would recommend writing down what you want to say to describe the food and straight read it. But that's me. Anyway, overall the food was good and if they improve the flow of the restaurant and front of the house service they will crush Arcadia. I will be back in a couple weeks to give it another try and I am looking forward to trying their dinner with some slight spins on comfort food.

    Amazing green godess salad--I had mine with chicken & my husband had his with Salmon...their proteins were perfectly cooked (tender & juicy) and seasoning was on point! Had an order of grilled chicken wings as well which were soooooo yummy. They had live music too! A small, cozy & awesome place--Will definitely be back!

    The food is outstanding. They had a special menu for restaurant week. The risotto was creamy, savory, and well balanced. The squid was light and fresh partnered with a lemon aioli. The service was good. The chef checked every dish before it left the kitchen... A nice commitment to quality. I give the food 5 stars out of respect for a job well done. The downsides... The dining area was cramped and hot inside. Sitting through dinner was loud and uncomfortable... For this I had to drop a star. I will definitely be back when the weather cools off and we can eat outside... Or sooner if they can turn on the air conditioner.

    What a charming place! Went on a Friday night and had no trouble getting seated. I had the steak which was delish but came with a pesto type sauce on top which I was not a fan of. I'm a purist so I like to taste the meat only. My friends ordered the calamari which was also not my favorite. It came swimming in a teriyaki sauce that was overwhelmingly sweet. Just too much again for my purist tastes. The flavor profiles of every dish were very unusual and for me that was a thumbs down but I could appreciate the food for it's quality and care with which the Chef prepared each dish. I will say- I love love the salt collection! Ask for some and your server will be delighted to give you an education. One other thing, I will be back because I am dying to taste their Bloody Mary. It's a weekend thing only? I didn't fully understand why it wasn't available but I can't wait to try that.

    (Lyrics - Hoobastank - The Reason) I'm not a perfect yelper There's many things I wish I could have tried But I continue learning I always want to try the things you cook And so I have to say before I go That I just want you to know I've found a reason to stay To eat the meals I want to try A reason to start over new At The Market by Jen's This place definitely is cute and lovely. I came for dinner with a friend. The place was pretty slow since we came early on a weeknight. We both order a couple of wines to start. For our appetizers we shot for the Heirloom Tomatoes & Watermelon. Great start I must say, the sweet cherry tomatoes and acidic oranges neutralized the bitter arugula while the watermelons subtle taste eased it all up! For our entrees we ordered the Organic Chicken and the Ricotta Gnocchi. I didn't really care for the Chicken entree, it was pounded down flat breaded and seasoned and topped with a mixed salad. I didn't really get much out of it since I felt the Sherry Vinaigrette was too light; I wanted a stronger creamier sauce! The Ricotta Gnocchi was the better of the 2 entrees. The dumplings were soft and warm to the bite while the roast pork brought a wonderful surprise but welcoming protein to the meal. Overall, I enjoyed my visit to The Market. Our service was stellar and the place was charming. In the end, ambiance made my night, but for me the food reminded me of a wedding dinner. - Enjoy!

    I love this place for lunch and brunch on Sunday. The food and vibe is perfection. Only complaint is the live music --not conducive to conversation. In the cooler months you can sit outdoors to avoid the music.

    I've had to run by this place and it's amazing smelling food when I do Crossfit at Sol. It's torture. So my friends and I decided to try this cute little trendy delicious place! First, let's say the service from Youlanda was OUTSTANDING! She was so sweet and down to earth, a great quality for a server. She did amazing at explaining all the items on the menu, she gave us her favorite item in each category of the menu. You could tell she really enjoyed and had a passion for the food served. We started with the chicken tortilla soup. It had incredible flavors! Creamy, fresh and bold!! (Oh and we got the yelp check in-free grilled wings! Yum!) We also ordered the Charcuterie board, the cheese board and the bread board and split the items. It was too much food for two people! But we really wanted to try it all!! We enjoyed all of the meats and cheeses! I can't wait to come back and try more items! My friends ordered the yellow fin salad, which looked fresh and they had no complaints!! My friend who has been to Nice, France had the yellow fin nicoise and said it was on point :) We also ordered the Mille Feuille. It was sweet and tart and the panna cotta. Everything was awesome! Thank you for the wonderful service Youlanda!

    What a charming place to grab a meal! I came here on a Friday night with my friends. I fully expected a wait, from reading other reviews, but to my delight there was none. We started off with the bread and butter board ($4). It came with a few slices of bread, including a pretzel bread, a jalapeno cheese bread, and another kind. The breads were all great and tasted freshly baked. The butter it came with was delicious! If only it had been a bit softer, it would have spread so nicely on the bread. Two of my friends shared the cheese and vegetable boards for their meals. The veggie board came with a wide variety of veggies, with bread and chips to eat them with. It was also served with two little cups of dressing. The cheese board had some different cheese, also with bread and chips, and on the sides little cups of dried fruit and some type of seeds (sunflower maybe?). They seemed to enjoy them! Although I heard the blue cheese was a bit strong. For my entree I got the roasted chicken. After my first bite, I knew I loved it. The chicken was served at a great temperature - very warm! It was so juicy - the juiciest piece of white meat I've ever had. My only dislike was that they sprinkled some peppercorns on top and those were REALLY strong peppercorns. I had to pick them off bc I didn't like the taste. Also, they included a sauce on top of the dish that was a bit too salty. Towards the end of eating the salt became a little overwhelming. I liked the dish a lot, but if I came again I'd probably try something else bc they had lots of interesting stuff on the menu! tip: it's kind of hard to find, located in the back corner of a little strip mall center type place. another tip is that they sell bundles of local veggies here for $25. so you can come every Friday and pick up a box of local veggies if you want. another tip: they serve brunch until 5 pm on the weekends, awesome for late risers (like me)!

    First time there. I will be back. I had a daily special which was a procutto raviloli with mushrooms and potatoes. OUTSTANDING meal. Then my wife and I ordered dessert. Lemongrass something or other with mangoes and toasted coconut, and a date shake.... OH MY. Nice place, good wine selection, draft beer, great service, very good food. What's not to love.

    What an adorable, curious place! Everything I'd heard about The Market is true + infinity! On the very corner of Arcadia's Gaslight Square is a hybrid dine-in restaurant with curbside catering. (If you're short on time prepared food is available for quick "grab and go".) I popped in for a speed lunch with my Yelper friend Su-Shien and was *delighted* by the food, service and decor. Think fancy pants (chandeliers sprinkle the room) with rustic touches (cord is used to tie silverware). The space is intimate yet casual. Two top tables can readily be combined for larger groups. I would love to return for dining IN the kitchen. That's right: There's a bigger table where the magic happens. Friends of mine have eaten there and raved about it. (Soon!) The food is made for sharing. Nosh boards range from meat, veges, cheese, fondue and (get this) plain ole' bread and butter. My first experience was with the charcuterie (meat) board. The menu doesn't do justice to what is delivered. Delicate sides accompany prosciutto, sopprasata, bresola and spanish chorizo. Thinly sliced wafers of bread can be layered with violet mustard, apple chutney and pickled shallots. We made our selection while enviously eyeing the table next to us. ....where The Very Jennifer was seated! She's a breath of fresh air! So sweet it (almost) hurts. You'll love her (and everyone else that works there). My friend and I split the Roasted Pork Cuban Sandwich. The pork melted away, deliciously prepared and served on a brioch bun with a side of sea salt chips. Generously sized we were very happy with our portions Happy Hour! *Every* Day They Are Open. (3-6pm) - 12 oz beers $2 - Well drinks $5 - Wine by glass 1/2 off Love, love, love this place!

    We waited an hour for our food. The "hot" wings were flavorless and not hot at all; they were so disgusting they tasted like they took the wings from the fridge and dumped them in the fryer, didn't even taste like anything but chicken and oil; I didn't eat them so they were taken off my bill. The steak and eggs were ordered medium well it came out rare and had to be sent back; they remade them and my friend ate it. (This was her 4th time at the market and said this is the 4th time of having bad service/bad food) her other experience was when the quiche was frozen in the middle. The beer comes in an 18 oz. glass but is only poured halfway so it feels like they cheat you when you look at the glass when ordering a 12oz. beer, I ordered a bud light which was $5 I don't even want to know how much their craft beers are. Our waitress was nice but she was overworked and running around to other guests most of the time so our table couldn't ask for anything promptly. It's just not a place I will ever visit again, and telling friends and family not to even bother. I have been contacted by a manager about my review and he tries blaming me about our party size and that I didn't have to pay for wings, and asked if I could change my stars because I like the band. Excuse me, your band has nothing to do with: food prepared wrong, disgusting wings, overpriced menu, and lack of good timely service. My one star is for the band. And yelp doesn't allow zero stars.

    Solid 3.5*, I will go back maybe it is 4* (I'm stingy with the star rating). Good neighborhood spot for brunch, especially of our looking for laid back and not the bottomless drink and loud party spot. well seasoned and executed dishes. Their outdoor seating is well thought out, shaded and was pleasant for a warm June morning. I will have to go back and check out their dinner service. Our server was great, seemed like someone who would really take care of the regulars and great service overall. I wanted the coffee to be a little better.

    Oh my!!! This place knocked my socks off!! I am so glad we stopped by this evening for dinner. I was aprehensive at first because it was nearly empty, but that changed as soon as we were dazzled by the amazing customer service from the staff. My husband and I ordered drinks from their menu. He had a Moscow Mule, and it was tasty. I ordered an Old Fashioned, but it was a little to old fashioned for me...lol.. not throwing shade to the bartender, but I guess I really didn't know what I wanted. She recommended this amazing drink to replace the first one, I can't recall the name of it, but it had ginger beer and I believe it was a Margarita of some kind. Bomb!! I am super obessed with that drink. For dinner, hubby order The Market Burger, which was very nice on the eyes and his stomach. It was huge, a great value for the price of $11. I had the Pan Seared Salmon with sticky rice and boy choy with a balsamic reduction and mushrooms....it was damn good! Seasoned so well, and the fish was cooked to perfection! Sorry we didn't take pics, the food looked and smelled so good, it didn't have a chance. I am not really much of a desert person, but I was so impressed, I ordered the brownie with rocky road ice cream and it was garnished with mint!! Woo chile, listen I ate all of it...super satisfied and I am a fan!! Will definitely be back sooner than later!

    Great meal! Great service. This is a small but eclectic place to enjoy a good meal for a fair price. They pride themselves on using local sources for food. We enjoyed everything we ordered for dinner. The watermelon salad was refreshing. The grilled calamari appetizer had a great flavor with a kick to it. For my main entree I had the Ricotta Gnocchi. Yum! Amazing flavors. Kyle our server was excellent. Attentive and engaging in conversation. Definitely will be back to try other creations as this restaurant.

    Came in for lunch based on previous reviews and am glad I did. Had the wedge salad and chicken...cannot express how delicious and fresh the food was. Certainly wish we had a "go to" spot like this is N Scottsdale. I am a big fan of Becket's Table but would be just as happy eating here and this place is certainly a little more reasonable. Not only was the food awesome but the server took the time to explain their process in the kitchen which I find not only a wonderful personal touch but as a foodie enjoy learning new ways to prepare food. Do yourself a favor and stop in, you will not regret this truly pleasurable dining experience.

    Welp, mark this as my new favorite place. We were waiting for the dust to settle a bit and decided it was finally time to visit this new spot. Wow is all I have to say. The decor and atmosphere are great, the service was genuine and some of the best I have had and the food....ohhhhhhh the food. I'm not one to over eat, but I left in pain with how full I was and it was worth it. We started off with the Bloody board -delicious and simple. I ordered the quiche which had chorizo, gruyere and spinach. Amazing! It was a good sized piece with a little salad along side it. I would eat that again a million times. Fiance had the steak and eggs. HOLY SHIT. I just about orgasmed over the flavor of this dish. I have never had anything so delicious and she only serves it on the weekends. If I had unlimited funds, I would eat that every day - morning noon and night. SERIOUSLY. We decided, based on a recommendation, to get the banana's foster nutella bread pudding. We were like, "oh we are full let's save this for later". NOPE. Ate it right there like fat asses...and we ate all of it. There wasn't a bite left and I even upended the caramel container into my mouth. Yeah, that good. I loved our server. They have a little market area with local cheeses and products and flavored salts. He sat with me patiently while I tried every flavor and explained to me why he liked each one, what he used them for and why they tasted the way they did. Another server came up and explained the cheese buying/making process from the local dairies. I freaking loved it there and would return any day for more.

    Get the gnocchi. The waitress described it as pillows of happiness and she is 100% correct. We went for a quick bite after a long week of work and it met all my wants. Quiet, friendly, comforting food. Will have to go back when I have time to relax with a cocktail and nosh board. That is what the neighboring tables were doing and it looked perfect.

    I've only heard positive things about the Chef of Jennifer's. She is a well trained chef and has worked in many very prestigious restaurants. I came here for restaurant week and whoever prepared the food clearly wasn't Jennifer. The best dish of the six we tried was the soup and sammich appetizer. The soup had little taste and seemed like half and half with pureed squash that was decorated nicely. The sandwich was tasty Grilled Brioche Bread that was stuffed with quality cheese, local honey and fresh pears. My husband had Arborio Rice that was still hard and not very creamy or tasty it was very flat and dry. My second Course was Patagonia Salmon over a Sunchoke Puree that was getting broken up by a big puddle of oil. The Fish was topped with not so tasty combination of raw tomatoes, and brown chunks of garlic and some fresh basil. The Fish was edible. My husband's Fresh Pasta Dish seemed like boxed spaghetti instead of fresh pasta that was prepared mushy and seemed sort of watery. At this point we were checked on and my husband informed the waiter about Hard Arborio Rice and Mushy Pasta. The waiter seemed sorry about that and walked away. I was hoping that desserts would be redeeming but for me they were the worst part of the meal. My favorite dessert is Lemon Meringue Pie so I was hoping the Mason Jar Lemon Meringue would be delicious. The Meringue wasn't Meringue but tasted like that gooey jarred Marshmallow Stuff called "Fluff" It was terrible to me. Nobody goes out for dinner and expects to receive jarred "Fluff".My husband was hoping for an apple Tarte Tatin. You can tell by the photo he didn't receive a Tarte Tatin. I didn't taste his dessert because I was too grossed out by the Marshmallow Fluff I just had but he said the dough was really weird. Maybe this is a really good sandwich place and not a dinner place? Maybe i hit this place on an off night and it's a possibility you might get a better prepared meal. I don't know. This was more disappointing to me than the not so fresh sushi I had last week somewhere. Jennifer needs to taste the food her cook prepares before it's too late. I will not return.

    What a refreshing afternoon. Had never heard of The Market. Drove by, it looked friendly and so happy we stopped. Greeted by Caleb who had terrific menu suggestions. Bacon-wrapped prawns with fry bread and sauce; cheese platter with pears, local honey and homemade crackers; and a fresh warm bread and butter assortment. Then came the tortilla soup. Wow. Just wonderful. Creamy tomato base, gentle seasoning with succulent cheese and shredded chicken. Yum. A leisurely afternoon of nibbling and chat. Owner Jen made sure we were happy and Richard came by the table and talked about local resources. Just a comfy time. Couldn't recommend the total experience more highly.

    What a great little neighborhood place! The minute you walk in you feel like a friend. The food is fresh and innovative without being pretentious.

    Jennifer, Jennifer how wonderful are thee. I might be dating myself when I disclose that I've had the pleasure of eating Jennifer's cooking when she was starting out in catering. At least, I think it's the same Jennifer. Her food was scrumptious then as it is scrumptious now. And creative. And fresh. The location is a bit hard to find but once in, the interior is delightful. I hope her place success because of the location and she starts to have loyal costumer and a cult following. The kind of place that spreads by word of mouth and people from the neighborhood who Become regulars there all know each other one way or another. A bit of a Friend's place. Just by chance, when Irene V. and I were there, Jennifer herself was there giving an interview to New Times- ever friendly Yelpers we introduced ourselves and Jennifer was equally friendly to us. We had ordered the charcuterie nosh board to share and she generously gifted us with an order of her famous roasted pork Cuban sandwich which we furiously said she didn't have to- but I mean, we're Yelpers and we love food- so once arrived, we helpfully enjoyed the sandwich, exclaiming over the robust flavor! Even without the unexpected gift, I would still write a 5 star review as like I had previously written, I loved Jennifer's food when she was strictly a caterer. Back then she had said she wanted to have a restaurant and I am happy for her her dream has come true. And I wish her many years of continued success!

    I am giving this place 5 stars before I even finish my meal. I had bid on a catered wine tasting meal from an auction for the SW Ctr for HIV/Aids fundraiser. The meal started out with happy hour cocktails and then progressed into Prosecco and the BEST EVER scallop and citrus I have ever tasted. Then there was a green goddess salad and Pinot Grigio, with crisp thin green beans, zucchini and broccoli...so fresh! Then an amazing corn bisque and caramelized popcorn. Who knew? Salmon in a red wine with Pinot noir and later, a filet mignon and Cabernet Sauvignon. Even though I have a Type A blood type, I thoroughly enjoyed the tender meat and willingly am taking the consequences. Meanwhile live music from Korbe Canida is taking the enjoyment factor to another level (in addition to the varied lovely artwork which changes every few weeks). Dessert was white chocolate mousse and the caramelized popcorn and raspberry tart. Ok we have all agreed coming back is mandatory for brunch and dinner...great wine selection and very impressive quality of food. "Definitely come back" "food was way beyond""very impressive"..."a hidden treasure" from attendees. I need to repeat this event. Family and work events, as well as any catering, in the future, I'm sold.

    Happened by this hidden gem and decided to stop for dinner. They have live music and they just started all day happy hour on Thursdays. I had the beef tenderloin which was made perfectly! Also the wedge salad which is made with butter lettuce instead of iceberg. I like that much better. Recommend and will return. The rest of the menu is very interesting.

    I really enjoyed a date night at The Market. When we walked in, my first impression was that it was small and the tables were super close together, however, my initial trepidation was quickly put to rest when we were greeted by super server Kyle. She was amazing! Very knowledgeable and all-around fun. The place was buzzing on a Saturday night, so I would definitely recommend reservations. Super secret info - the nosh boards are broken down by meat/cheese/veggie, but they can put something together for you if you want to try some of the various elements and not just opt for a single-stream board. And - though this may not seem like a big deal - our food was timed perfectly after our appetizer and the food was HOT. Not heat-lamp-hot-plate hot, but hot food like it was just perfectly prepared and brought to our table. I thought that was really impressive. I had the salmon, which was lovely and my husband had the gnocchi, which he devoured. My only recommendation? Dim the lights a bit once it's dark outside. it was still fairly bright throughout our meal and a bit of ambiance might have been nice. Otherwise, perfection. We'll be back.

My friend ordered the artichoke risotto and that too was amazing (not mushy or bland). What I value the most about The Market is their knowledge in creating a complete experience for the customer. There's a certain low key flair I appreciate, from the decor to the artisan products they offer. Can't wait to visit for brunch!

    Wonderful neighborhood bistro with real community spirit. They approached me about doing a food bank find raiser and the nopales frites they created for the event were so popular they continued to keep them as an ongoing fundraiser. We need more great places like this! Be sure to try the Superior-tini (jalapeño laced, made with legally harvested Superior prickly pears) while you're there!

    The food here is always fresh and amazing! The gnocchi is my favorite, but the tuna nicoise salad and Cuban sandwich are also very good -- as are the soups. Note: if you get the Cuban sandwich, request that they put it on plate -- it's very hard to eat on the cutting board they serve it on (the top of my bun fell on the floor, LOL).

    We dined here for Valentine's Day. It was great but a few things stuck out. My boyfriend had called ahead to make sure they had their regular menu too- which they did but they failed to mention it. The maitre de also placed us next to another couple when we came in and the place was far from empty- we asked to move tables and lucky we did because it never filled up. Otherwise, the food was amazing and our server was great. We really enjoyed the wine pairing with each course. I think we would try it again.

    Yumm!! We got the beef filet and the gnocchi to-go and we were pleasently surprised! The lady behind the counter was wonderful and super friendly. I loved the decor and our food was perfectly cooked and equally delicious. That chimichurri is to die for! We'll definitely be back, thanks for a great meal and service!

    So I was a little hesitant about coming here because I didn't see any great reviews on google and menu prices were high. We get there and it literally took over an hour to get our food. I ordered a bread board and nachos. Bread board was good which is why I gave 2 stars but the nachos...Geeze they should not be called nachos I paid $6 for a tiny bowl of potatoe chips with very gross, COLD cheese (if I could even call it cheese) I have a pic attached so you can see for yourself. I only ate like 2 chips and had my friends try too, they weren't pleased. My friend ordered wings which tasted like plain chicken and they were suppose to be spicy. Those were also not hot. Another friend ordered steak and eggs medium and got rare. I do give props to the waitress she tried really hard to fix the situation, but often it took her a while to even get to the table which is why I think our food took so long. would not recommend this place, overpriced and food is not good.

    Wonderful Sunday Brunch! We arrived as a group of 12 around 1:00 pm. We were seated quickly, welcomed generously, and brought coffee and drinks quickly. All around, everyone agreed the food was top-notch. And we sampled a wide range of offerings. The eggs were amazingly fresh tasting, and served on top of enchiladas, as well as other dishes. The fresh tuna on the niscoise salad was rare and delicious. Etc., etc. The service was incredibly attentive, friendly and helpful. When my order for chilequilas was mixed up, it was corrected in just a few minutes, so I wasn't left behind to finish last. And the server gave me a free cookie to acknowledge his mistake. For which I felt he redeemed himself. I would recommend this jewel of restaurant without reservation (pun intended)!

    Went on Sunday morning for brunch/breakfast. Their Bloody Mary board is excellent! You can create your beverage to your liking. I love that! Great idea. I had the meat quiche and it was delicious and the service was great for us, very prompt. I like the grab-n-go options as well as some of the marketplace items like quail eggs, very cool. I will definitely be going back since it's right in our hood as well.

    Love this little hidden Gem in Arcadia off Indian school. Has a cute interior and outdoor patio that has been dog friendly. My dog has always been given a bowl of water, on top of that Iv yet to have had bad service. Everyone has been lovely and I get the sense they enjoy working here. Now to the food. It's fresh and much of it to my understanding is locally grown. The menu is not overwhelming so what is on it has been outstanding. They used to serve breakfast during week but sadly now it's only on weekends. They often have live music on some week nights and during brunch on Sundays.

    Everything about the experience here is tops. Happened across it while on my way to a different place, and am thrilled with my decision. The food, wow. I had an omelette. The menu liats three different kind, a pepper, a pok and a cheese. I thought all three sounded good, so they made a combo and omg it must be one of the best omelets I've ever had! The details of the whole place have been well thought out. From the size of the coffee cup to the music to even a nice little shelf next the to toilet in the bathroom (perfectly clean bathroom, btw) I'd make this my go to diner if I lived anywhere even remotely close!

    Service was good but it was very slow and they weren't busy at all. The food was decent. Nothing stand out or memorable. I thought their kids meal was one of the best and most wholesome that my daughter has had at a restaurant. My favorite thing was their bread board. We'd come back for happy hour and bar bites.

    What a cute little restaurant! The husband and I came here to get dessert and coffee one night and it was lovely. We ordered the flourless chocolate cake board.... it was so crazy good, maybe one of the best desserts I've had in Phoenix (maaaaybe). It's a delicious, dense, chocolate cake (and a large piece too!), with an espresso mascarpone topping and 3 other toppings in small containers. The toppings were raspberries macerated with mint, strawberries, and some kind of brittle. The cake with the cream and the raspberries was pure gold. I would come here just for this again. Also, the coffee was delicious and the cream came in a cute mini milk bottle (aww). The only downside was the service was a little inattentive, especially for such a small place. Anyway, I would like to come back to try their other food!

    I've been wanting to check this place out for awhile and after Chow Bella mentioned how awesome the brunch is on the weekends, my boyfriend and I stopped by. He had the vegetable omelette, I had the meat quiche and we shared a side of bacon. The food was delicious, especially the bacon. The bacon had this amazing, smoky flavor to it. The quiche tasted fresh and flavorful. The reason for the three stars is the service. I'm not sure if our server was new, but she didn't seem to know the answer to any of our questions. We asked what was in the vegetable omelette and she kind of hemmed and hawed before asking the chef, then she didn't know what the price of the special bacon was, etc. I had ordered a hot chocolate too, but that didn't come out until halfway through the meal and it was lukewarm. The other server seemed more experienced and I hope to get her next time. The food is delicious, so I'll be back again, but hopefully the newer server gets more training.

    I came here after flying in from Seattle. The staff was fantastic! I came with 2 kids, they were accommodating and kind. I Loved the interior right away! I love the selection of local foods and drinks. I started with asparagus board. It was divine! Everyone enjoyed the food. We had burgers, salmon, fries. I wish this little gem was closer to me. I highly recommend it. The food was outstanding and the prices very good. Hope I can visit again.

    Happened to stop by for a late lunch right as happy hour started. Service was great, both our server Beau and the mgr were very friendly and attentive. We got free wings courtesy of previous reviewer Nicole and they were cooked perfectly and had great flavor. I also had the market burger which is delicious and my girlfriend had the wedge salad. Very happy that we finally stopped by this local spot. We will be back again soon!

    I was researching a spot for a large group for brunch and decided to stop in for lunch to check it out. I had the best pulled chicken sandwich ever! It was served on a cutting board with homemade potatoe chips. Kayleen my waitress was wonderful and the love the chic friendly atmosphere. A great find! I will be returning with our large group for sure!

    I axles ahead to see if they had a dog friendly patio and any happy hour! We got hooked up by riches he told us about the yelp special and I was in with the chicken wings. The food was great!!!' The polenta was the best! The good selection of craft beer was in a sweet little cooler! Loved it

The Market burgers were fantastic! The homemade potato chips and french fries fantastic! And whoever said the wings were anything but extraordinary is out of their mind! They were delicious! Hat's off to The Market By Jennifer's! Can't wait to go back and enjoy. What an excellent time!

    Fresh, well prepared and inventive food served in a bright, urban environment. Excellent service by well informed waitress. I chose the delicious shrimp and artichoke lemon risotto and my date had the Yellow fin Tuna salad which was sublime. We started with a fresh Asparagus soup that we shared and an absolutely fantastic chocolate bread pudding with caramel sauce. Very reasonably priced for the type of food served. Wholeheartedly recommend this gem.

    A fantastic add to the AZ dining scene! We stopped in today for wine/champagne and a cheese and charcuterie board. The service was fantastic - our server had a great personality and made the experience an even better one. The space is shabby chic and just fantastic with all of the doors/windows open on a beautiful afternoon. We'll definitely be back to try more food and to be our "go to" place for wine and cheese in the Valley.

    Stopped in for lunch and had a great experience. Parking is easy, right on the corner next to Crudo. I was quickly greeted by a very friendly server who took me over to the cooler to pick out my beer of choice. Ended up having a nice hefeweizen from Temecula, CA. My friend and I decided to split the cheese board, $14. They were out of the brie that comes with it, so they upped the size of the other cheese portions. The goat Humbolt Fog was my favorite. The board comes with dried fruit (similar to the kind you find in trail mix), spiced almonds (loved these) and a very interesting apricot compote (it actually tasted like sausage, but i think i liked it.) The atmosphere is cool and comfortable. It looks like they have some great grab-and-go options as well. I will definitely be back to try more things on the menu, but not when I'm looking for a meal under $12...

    I am not sure even how to give this amazing and beautiful neighborhood spot the words it is due. The service, top notch, we had the kindest server who's only mission was to provide a great Sunday morning brunch experience. The food, made fresh to order with local and organic ingredients when possible. The atmosphere, sweet. Great music, not crowded, and unbelievable attention to detail. From the tags on the wine and beer bottles for sale in the market to the candy cane striped straws and the soft napkins mindfully wrapped with a tiny twine bow. They have a music and event schedule with outside seating. The location is off to the corner so drive around the plaza building if you cannot find it at first. I will be back and look forward to another amazing experience. Thank you.

    I am writing to sing the praises of the Niçoise salad. The seared tuna on it was flawlessly prepared, the haricot verts were perfectly al dente and I loved the touch of roasted tomatoes. And at $13 which may seem a little steep, it was a lot of food---I didn't finish it. The people that worked there were very friendly. It's a little hard to find, being at the back of the shopping center next to Crudo.

    Stopped by here on the fly one day to get to go dinners. Revelation! The food was so delicious we decided to come back for brunch. It's a menu brunch rather than a buffet. The food is so well prepared and the ingredients chosen with such care. The staff is very welcoming and knowledgeable. They have a full bar as well as a good wine and beer selection. We went back to try the dinner. I ordered risotto, which was as good as it gets. My companion ordered the salmon. Just delicious. They have a nice selection of desserts. We went with the Bananas Foster bread pudding. Many, many yums. I cannot recommend this place enough.

    I work right down the street from The Market and often have little down time in-between tanning clients to eat, so I love the convenience of stopping by The Market to pick up a delicious, gourmet meal from their "Grab N Go" section that offers REAL, quality meals that'll nourish and energize me for the remainder of my day. You won't find long lines here or in their parking lot. Parking is a cinch (no valet), which allows me to literally walk in and out in 5 minutes. It's one of the best attributes of The Market that I can greatly appreciate. A hungry girl is no pretty sight so time is of value when it comes to feasting. I'm also here every Sunday stocking up on my Evolution Juices for the week because The Market sells them at $4! That's the best price I've seen so far in the Valley, plus the girls and Richard always have a warm smile to share every time I walk in. The restaurant has an open air feel to it, great packaging for spices and delicious pastries. I've only had one opportunity to sit down and dine, but I'd love to explore their menu more.

    First time patrons, Sat afternoon, quaint place, fun and fresh decor. Good service. A bit confusing for a newbie, seeing that there was no direction as to if you are to wait to be seated, seat yourself or order at the counter. Great presentation of the meat nosh board and herb fries accompanied by iced coffee(that had no real strength to it) and was surprised that a restaurant like this didn't serve a simple syrup with the coffee, but packets of all types of sugar. Meat nosh board was tasty, Good variety, could use a bit more cheese and bread for all of the meat they give you, And the peach chutney was oishii(delicious)! Try, it won't hurt.

    This is a great find and a great addition to the Arcadia area! My family stopped in for lunch and was very pleased with our meals. I had the Cuban which was great and my husband had their burger. You can tell they are using fresh ingredients and there is a lot of attention to detail in the entire experience. I am looking forward to coming back and trying their nosh boards! It seems like a great spot to bring a group of friends for drinks (great wine selection) and we def want to come back and check out brunch which they serve until 5pm- bonus! This place really deserves some love from CenPho people and I hope you all check it out!

    So happy to have this in the neighborhood! I've been there several times and not been disappointed once. I can see how Jennifer has been a long-time successful caterer. The Cuban sandwich is plentiful and delicious. The asparagus, burratta, and prosciutto salad is a nice light offering but still satisfying. Butternut squash soup hit the spot. I enjoyed the fresh shrimp po boy - the shrimp was not fried - which made it feel healthier. I'm not a huge fan of the nosh boards, the corn chips are nothing special and the combination is a bit weird. Do try the brownie cookies, you will not regret it.

    Amazing food and a great staff. Karleen is one of the employees and she always recommends the best items on the menu to eat. We also met Jennifer for the first time and she made the experience even better, very happy and made us enjoy our meal even more. S'mores board is a must try for desert.

    The Gaslight Square is on fire and this is another bright option to this strip mall. Why am I so hooked to The Market? They didn't copycat any typical new restaurants. All of their interiors are fastidious and tasteful (not just thrown up yesterday) and they definitely have the cafe vibe. I'm excited about the cheeseboard and charcuterie options plus happy hour. Baked goods are very yummy and quiche was gorgeous. Staff were extremely professional - even making sure that tidying up (sweeping) wasn't a bother to me. Thanks for the great option in our neighborhood! Looking forward to kicking back on your patio this spring. Folks, they also have ample parking... A commodity in Arcadia.

    I'm not one to fling around perfect ratings based on just one visit, but this place made such a great impression on me there was just no alternative. I had the salade niçoise and a side of the herb fries ... MY GOD SO TASTY. The salad had perfectly seared sashimi-grade yellowfin tuna, and the dressing was light and perfect. The fries ... I have no idea how they got the fries so crispy and delicious. After lunch I bought pretty much one of everything from their bakery display case ... their pastry chefs know what they're doing. I loved the French décor, too. The music was hit and miss though, but no big deal. Oh, it's not visible from the street, really. It's on the southwest corner of the strip mall. The main entrance faces south.

    So it seems that the owner of this business is just as unprofessional as her employees! After my conversation with them on Wednesday, today I received a call from Jennifer and a voicemail that was largely sarcastic in tone, as well as unapologetic for her employee's behavior. Also in the voicemail was her distaste for my yelp review that she called "harsh". She does say "I apologize" at one point in a tone and verbiage that is clearly an "I'm sorry, I'm not sorry". "Hi Rae, this is Jennifer with Jennifer's catering... I would love to chat with you. I know that you chatted with Amanda yesterday and I see you had a "very large problem with that", so I'd like to talk to you about that. I apologize if she came across...um... harsh? But... uh, yeah... this yelp review is awfully harsh too. BUT, I think she was just going by the guidelines but, uh... obviously that was very (inaudible) to you so I'd like to discuss." Jennifer ends the message by leaving her number and an extremely curt "Thank you". How inappropriate can you get?!? The only reason you have my information is because I gave it your staff member before I realized what kind of a company I was dealing with. The information was given under the pretense that I wanted to hire you to cater an event, not call and complain about my very accurate, well deserved yelp review and subsequent review update. A tip: Don't call and leave voicemails complaining about yelp to the yelper who left it for you in the first place. How in the world do you have a successful business when you don't know the basics of customer service, hospitality and appropriate business behavior? I'd also like to add, if you had called and were actually professional, apologetic and genuinely concerned about "very large problem" & the poor experience I had in the first place, instead of your yelp reviews, I would have gladly changed/amended it to say that you called and cared. Instead, you shot yourself in the foot and now this is here... To anyone who is thinking of hiring this company, you've been warned! As for me, I've moved on and booked someone else.

    Trying some place new monthly. Friend chose Marketplace. Quaint, little restaurant on a Sat night. Seemed like the server was new. Bread board just ok. Wedge salad ok. Friend had risotto which she said was ok. I had ricotta gnocchi. Was light but also melting into other ingredients. Understand they are also good for breakfast/brunch. Dinner was nothing special.

    Loved this place, I had the seared yellowfin salad, and it was amazing. It's pricey but worth it . I would say to order it raw since I got it medium and it was cooked all of the say through, with no pink. It was still amazing, even over cooked.

    First visit...all by myself. Sunday pre-evening, kid-free, errands done, glass of wine and a nosh desired. Drove by, saw a light crowd, a patio, and a bunch of motorcycles. Clearly not overly pretentious...so I stopped. I had a very attentive waiter, a lovely glass of wine, good butternut squash soup and an amazing salad with beets and pistachio vinegrette. Happiness on a patio! I look forward to a family dinner here to try the salmon :-)

    VERY excited about The Market by Jennifer's. As in, I tried it this past weekend, and oh, I'm already going back today. I was excited to see that the place was packed because I want this market to be around for a long time. The LOCATION is great. In the complex with Antique Gatherings, Poor Little Rich Girl and Zipps, Right next to Crudo, and facing 36th Street. They've taken limited exterior space, and managed to make a great outdoor patio (that doesn't face Indian School - yay!). INSIDE - ohemgee. Exposed ceiling, french-inspired chandeliers, and cafe tables. The devil is in the details, and they nailed it. Even the water beverage bar is on a french industrial table, while the order numbers for your table are made of solid wood with bold-font numbers. It feels provincial, trendy and local at the same time. I like a well-designed space. The SERVICE was great. Diners order at the counter and the food comes to you. As soon as we walked in, a server told us the process, gave us menus and told us to make ourselves comfortable at a table while we decided. This avoids a long line at the counter. While we sat and looked at the menu, we were served water and asked if we had questions. (Although this is an order at the counter cafe, we never had to get up to refill our water glasses. The servers were on top of this for us.) And we did have a question - which of the MENU items do we try because they all sounded ridiculously good. Traditional lunch and dinner entrees and "nosh boards." We went for the Molten Fondue Nosh Board because we were on a diet (I kid, I kid.) Fresh fruit, locally-made sausage, bread and pretzel bites on a great wooden board with a small cruet of fondue. It was a prefect light lunch for two. And it was so good that when we finished the board, I was honestly tempted to drink the few remaining drops of the fondue straight. (Maybe they should offer this as a cocktail "molten fondue, neat.") We didn't have dessert or pastries, but the looked worth the splurge. Last but not least, the "GRAB N' GO " A fridge of prepared entrees that you can buy and pop in the oven at home. I was excited to see entrees in a range of palates - sophisticated choices for an adult get-together to comfort food for the kiddos. (I hear the mac n' cheese is so addictive you should warn your arteries.) My only point of contention (every review has one) is that they are closed two days - Mondays and Tuesdays. Deal breaker? Nah. I'm hoping they're testing the waters and might compromise on one day for those of us hoping to pop in to grab an entree or two for dinner. So clearly, I'm a fan. I will probably become a Norm-like regular. Cen Pho / Arcadia was crying for a place like this - casual, easy with exceptional food. Yay. Yay. Yay.

    The concept is a bit different. You order at the counter and service brings the food to you. They just appeared to have opened. My wife and wanted something casual for dinner which this place provided. At the end of the day, restaurants are about the food and this place has excellent food. Great cheese platters and $20 steak. Once this place gets going, it is going to be one of the Acadia go to spots. If you are a foodie who likes casual joints. You will love this place.

    Yet another fantastic new dining establishment along the Indian School corridor!!! My company hosted a small catered event at Jennifer's new cafe and everything was fantastic! All of our 40 guests were very happy with the food, service and overall atmosphere of the of this new cafe. Every effort was made to ensure our party was fully accommodated. The food was exceptional and very reasonably priced. Jennifer and her staff are truly trying to make an impression in their new cafe and it shows. I'm looking forward to adding this a one of my new favorite lunch spot and catering options!

    I live right around the corner from this place and have been excitingly awaiting it to open. I had friends in town for the weekend and so we decided this place would be perfect for a late Sunday lunch. I was very impressed when I walked in. They put a lot of thought and effort in creating an awesome atmosphere. We ordered the butternut squash soup, a burger, yellow tail tuna salad, chicken schnitzel sandwich and the Cuban sandwich and shared everything. The soup and chicken sandwich was good, the tuna on the salad seemed off and we couldn't put our finger on what it was about the consistency that just seemed off, I didn't like the Cuban but everyone else said it was just OK and we all thought the burger was horrible. Everything on the burger was bland except the burnt onion. The meat had no flavor AT ALL. I feel that there was a lot of effort put into the atmosphere and the menu was an afterthought. I doubt I will be going back.

    We were excited to see this place move into our hood. It seemed hip and a little more upscale than most of the local spots. Kind of like Beckett's Table. But it's not as cool as Beckett's. The only similarity is the lack of veg menu options. There are veg appetizers, but no entrees. All the same stuff we see on other new and old restaurant menus. I guess that's the thing to do - open a restaurant and copy other menus. Boring. And in our case disappointing. If they are going to copy we need a new upscale restaurant that copies and elaborates on Flower Child's menu.

    Unique, friendly little place with delicious food and great take-home meals as well. Service is exceptional and most everyone will find something they love here.

    We were part of a large gathering of about 25 friends brought together to honor a newly wed couple. The restaurant did not miss a beat; truly organized. Tables were nicely arranged and the staff was highly efficient, despite a milling, high-density crowd through which they needed to thread themselves. Appetizers, salad, main course (four choices) and dessert were delights to the palate. Even though there were other tables occupied by diners unrelated to our party, the setting was such that they were not obtrusive. The beer and wine selections were ample but not overwhelmingly large, yet selected with a keen eye. A tiny wine bar (perhaps they served cocktails) was tucked away in the corner. The decor was ecclectic -- a colonial style colonnaded veranda connecting through French doors to one large interior room graced by what appeared to be three Czechoslaviakian crystal chandeliers, a large-screen tv, chalk board menus on the wall, an expansive serving portal to the very large kitchen and a wall of glass-doored refrigeration units -- and yet despite this unusual collage of appliances and fixtures, the ambiance of the space was very pleasant. We all could not have been more satisfied. This place unquestionably is a winner.

    Went there for the first time and it was great! Great in every way. Darling setting, great friendly service. Lots of choices. Everything we ordered and everything we saw others receive were gorgeous! Our food was wonderful. Portions nice and prices reasonable. What more could you ask for? Thanks to everyone at Jennifers. We will be back!

    I love the atmosphere & decor-- comfortable and lovely. Our service was excellent yet relaxed. However the food left soomething to be desired... during brunch a few weeks ago I tried the charcuterie board and the huevos rancheros. Although the former was delicious, the portions were little mini bites fit for a dollhouse! And I'm no huge eater! The latter, huevos rancheros, was just ok. The overeasy eggs were cooked perfectly, perched atop two thin crunchy tostada-like disks, and then smothered with thin red sauce. Sometimes simple is best, but in this case it would have benefited greatly from a little side of something...anything... The other folks in my party tried the quiche (pretty itty), the ricotta gnocchi with pancetta (there were seven gnocchi. Literally seven little pillows doused in SO much watery sauce), and the nicoise salad (the definite winner of the meal- nice size salad and fresh tuna). I'd like to give Jennifer's another try, but there are so many places to choose from these days...

    I wish Jennifer's was closer to my house as I would be there all of the time! The food is delicious , the ambiance is great - love sitting on the patio with a glass of wine and a "nosh" board watching the sunset - and all of the staff are very friendly and helpful!

    My wife and I went a couple of Wednesday's ago and had the vegetable board, gnocci, and flourless chocolate cake. The food was all pretty good, however, it was a little tight the way the tables were arranged and a bit loud off on and on from a wine group that they do in the middle of the week but otherwise great atmosphere. Also, the chocolate cake was dense, very chocolaty and really good.

    Finally got a chance to come I here. Been eyeing this place since it started being built out. Although we came here for desert and coffee only, their dinner menu looked liked it has some delicious meals. The desert here was top notch. We had an Apple bourbon stack and a brown butter brownie chocolate chip cookie. Some of the best and more unique deserts I've ever had. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is very laid back. The waitress was telling us about their happy hour and how you can see the sunset from the patio tables. We plan on coming back for happy hour and dinner to see the sunset. I love discovering new local restaurants like this. Come by, check this place out, treat yourself to some good food, support local business, and make sure to tell your friends :)

    The market by Jennifer. My first time here, and I get to tour the kitchen with the GM. So clean. I ordered the wedge salad to start, it's a Iceberg wedge, point Reyes blue cheese, bacon. Hard to go wrong with this salad. I also ordered the rock shrimp poboy. So good. The shrimp were cooked to about medium rare. A chewy, hard crumbly bread was the rock that held all the goodies inside and gave the sandwich more body. What was just awesome was the pickled and roasted pig trotter. Freaking awesome. It came with a light green salad with a citrus vin. So tender, juicy and fattening. But well worth it. You can also grab cold food to go pre made. Some you can heat up yourself. I went the other way and took home an awesome imperial stout. (yes, they have beer and wine to go!) I can't wait to take my girlfriend in to try the meat and cheese boards and have a bottle of wine.

    Awesome staff, Epic food, and Rad Happy Hour. A great Arcadia location and is beach cruiser friendly..

    The food was very good but the live entertainment was so loud (Saturday at lunchtime) that is was nigh unto impossible to hear what others at the table were saying unless they leaned forward and shouted, which was very annoying and certainly detracted from our party's experience.

    I've never written a yelp review before, mainly because I've never really been compelled to. Either the place is great and everyone knows it, or it wasn't that good. Let me tell you though, people need to know about The Market By Jennifer's. I'm sitting on the patio enjoying one of the better views of an AZ sunset I've ever seen, while sipping on delicious wine that is half off (during happy hour only of course), and chowing down on this amazing chips and dip plate (complimentary during HH!!). Karlene, our waitress, was extremely knowledgable and attentive. How is this place not packed?! Truly a hidden Arcadia gem. If you don't know, now you know. Get here.

    Sorry, Jennifer'S. Stick to catering where you don't have a customer service component. A service based business should at least require staff to interact with customers. If your staff can glare at customers they can at least fill water glasses.

    My new favorite place! Located in the Gaslight Shopping Center in Arcadia next to Crudo (its in the back on the corner). Cool, casual atmosphere and very affordable for the kind of food they serve. I've been there multiple times now and everything was incredibly delicious. I went with a friend and we shared a cheese board and had the most divine asparagus soup. Was so impressed went again this time with my husband and he loved it as much as me (he raved about his risotto) and I had the Cuban sandwich and then we splurged on some kind of decadent chocolate bread pudding. Ingredients are fresh, menu is varied and interesting, service was great and place is very clean! This is worth checking out!

    Great place, great food. Can't wait to go back. However, we're not sure about the use of the apostrophe in the restaurant's name though. Any thoughts?

    I don't yelp much but I want to see these guys do well. The food is great. The atmosphere is really cute. Loving the nosh boards and the unique wine selection. Fun place to relax with cheese and a drink. Try the chips.

    I hired Jennifer's Catering for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary party, and they were fantastic. They made everything effortless for me, so I could enjoy the party. They were always looking for ways to help me out, and ways to make my guest's experiences even more enjoyable. The food was wonderfully delicious, the bartender was friendly and went above and beyond, and the rest of the crew was just as friendly and professional. They certainly exceeded my expectations and I would definitely hire them again.

    Cute space and decor - this place has potential. The only reason I am giving this place a low rating because the food was not very good. I ordered the Shrimp Po-Boy, it came out cold and the complete opposite of what a Shrimp Po-Boy should taste like. The shrimp was small and cold, the sandwich basically tasted like a salad in a stiff baguette. I was so disappointed, I wanted to cry because I was looking forward to fried shrimp in a warm baguette. For $11 I would expected something amazing. Definitely not coming here again :(

    Jennifer's did our wedding and we, and our guests, could not have been happier with the amazing food, service, and attention to detail. I have also used her for several corporate events and my clients always appreciate that little extra that comes from the experience. Professional, classy, delicious, perfect.

    My husband took me to this place last week and what a delight it was! We went for Sunday brunch. From the moment you walk in, I loved the industrial/rustic feel with the beautiful chandeliers that hung.. 5 of them to be exact. The place is not very big, but that only adds to the charm and cozy feeling. The staff was superb, sharing information about local fresh ingredients used and we even got to taste a special dish that one of them was photographing! The food was phenomena!! My kids are not big "kid meal" type kids, they enjoying eating what the adults enjoy eating and my family felt very welcomed here. Everything we ordered came in generous proportions, very fresh, incredibly delicious, and excellent ingredients... just down right fantastic. I love quaint places like this where the chef comes around to your table and talks to you, it just adds to the whole dining experience! If you are looking for something new that will excite your taste buds, come to this relaxed setting and enjoy fantastic food!

    Jennifer's did an amazing job catering my wedding. They went above and beyond and took care of the food, rentals, even coordinating live trees for decoration! People are still talking about our hors d'oeuvres stations, (a innovative alternative to the usual buffet), each one a different theme that allowed our guests to graze all night! I would love to use Jennifer's again in the future, one word: flawless!

    I live very close by and was really hoping Jennifer's would be my new favorite. Although I was sadly disappointed with the service and confused by my meal, I plan to return to try them out for breakfast. I was sat by my waitress who came back 10-15 minutes later asking if I was ready to order, yet she hadn't given me a menu or offered me a beverage. I ordered the herb seasoned fries (delicious! ) and the pork Cuban sandwich. Someone else dropped off my food, and my waitress never came back. I had to flag people down as they passed to ask for things like a refill and for my tab. The "Cuban" resembled nothing even close to a traditional cuban sandwich. I thought I received a bbq pork sandwich someone else ordered. It tasted mostly of vinegar (from the pickled shallots) and bbq sauce. The bun was overly charred, black and burned. They were really busy though and all new businesses experience growing pains so I will definitely be back to test out other items on their menu. There was a blond gal who I assumed was either the owner or perhaps a front of house manager that was remarkably friendly. I gave them 3 stars for now and hope to increase it after my next visit! Major plus......pet friendly patio!

    I decided to try this restaurant based on the good reviews on Yelp. I was meeting a friend for brunch on Sunday the day before Memorial Day. I arrived a little early because I wasn't sure where it was. It is located in Gaslight Square Shopping Center at the back. I suggested that they have an arrow to point where the place was located. I called my friend as I knew she would need good directions to find the place. It was very quiet when I got there so I got good service. When my friend arrived we ordered. She had a cheese omelette and I ordered the vegetable quiche. Her omelette came with shoestring fries and my vegetable quiche came with a salad. She said her dish was outstanding and my quiche melted in my mouth. It was so good. I would like to return as the service was good and there are many items I would like to try. I highly recommend this new place. They also have a Happy Hour as well.
