Hi guys,

I'm planning a private dinner event and trying to decide between Market Table or Blue Hill. I would love to hear some thoughts on this since I'm really stuck between the two. Which would you guys recommend and which has the better food?

Thanks!

    Thanks guys. I went with Blue Hill after hearing some good things about it. very excited about the event. I did consider MAS and a number of other places, but I think I made the right decision. Will update with how it went in a little while....

      Blue Hill is great for special events. My friends had their wedding reception there and it was fantastic! Staff seemed genuinely happy to be a part of a joyful occasion. The food was freaking awesome too.

        I haven't even been to Blue Hill but would recommend it over Market Table, which I found to be overpriced and not out of the ordinary. Market Table only has a name because of its connection to Little Owl, which is much better.

          They are really very different. Blue Hill is more of a special occassion spot and Market Table is very casual but good, simple food. Market Table is extremely small - I don't know how many people you are planning for.

            I hosted a party in the back room at Blue Hill. The food and service were wonderful, The room was a little cramped (maybe we had 18 or 20 people....I don't really remember).I'd go back to Blue Hill a minute. I went to Market Table based on loving Little Owl and wasn't really wowed with the food. Not really a "destination" place like Blue Hill is. Market Table is good, solid, albeit unremarkable
