We had a beautiful rehearsal dinner at the Market. This restaurant just opened in June so some of the issues we had may be just because of timing. We met with staff there to plan this dinner twice. The first time we met, the owner was very excited for our dinner and personable, professional, etc. The second time we met, we waited quite some time for her and she seemed overwhelmed. She was not wanting to give many options and even told us "we are not doing any rehearsal dinners any more. You are the only one." It almost felt like she regretted us having our dinner there. She wanted the meeting over as soon as possible so she could go and cook. She seem frustrated that we had come when she needed to cook, but she was the one who scheduled the meeting during that time. It was disappointing. She did email afterwards to say she was excited for the event which was nice. At the event, the wait staff was very personable and friendly. They were excited for us and congratulated us throughout the night which was really nice. We had a cash bar and our guests all had tabs on their cards. When they went to pay at the end of the night, the tabs had all been messed up so our guests had incorrect charges. Some of our guests were charged $20, $40, or even $100s more than they had actually purchased. Our guests were very patient throughout this process as the staff worked to get the accurate charges on the cards. However, it was difficult to watch the owners yelling at the wait staff and guests. It was not handled professionally at all. The food was good and the environment was very special. We are really glad we had our dinner there. I doubt they will do rehearsal dinners in the future which is too bad. They are a new restaurant, working on the kinks, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is really one of a kind in Sioux Falls. We will certainly go back for dinner again! Read less
