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!

    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

      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.

          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.
