Diner Reviews
  • "I've been to Markt before and always enjoy myself because I LOVE mussels!! I happened to get fish this time since I was with a few people that couldn't order shellfish, but I still had a delicious meal. Great ambience - clean, energetic, but not too loud to have a conversation, food came out fast and was hot. They open the doors and put tables outside in the Summer but it was so hot the other night, I was happy to sit inside. They must have had the air on though, because it was comfortable even with the doors open. I had the cod, which was delicious. Flaky and tender in a great sauce. Mac n cheese was ordered, as were fries for the table. So yum! Markt is a favorite of mine, so of course, I'll be back!"

  • "We enjoyed our brunch here. The service was fair (three asks to get refills on water) but staff was friendly, service quick, food was good."

  • "This is one of my favorite restaurants in Chelsea. With a great selection of German/Belgium beers on tap and an equally impressive selection of bottles, I always find a new beer to enjoy. I have never been disappointed with the poached salmon, which is always cooked to perfection, and any dish that comes with a side of stoemp is worth your time. The buttery mashed potatoes, with lobster, are melt in your mouth! Good desserts, slightly different than your standard menu, and lean toward Belgium roots with waffle options as well."

  • "I promised a colleague to take her to a restaurant serving Dutch cuisine, but unfortunately, the last restaurant serving Dutch food closed some time ago. So I settled for Belgian (geographically close, cuisine wise not really). Markt is right across the street from where I live, so it was an easy and good choice. The menu is Belgian, with a splash of US (hamburgers aren't really Belgian). I can especially recommend the "Garnalen Kroketten"! Very yummy! With deep fried "look" to really complete! Just one thing: why only 2 per serving..........? The rest of the menu looks good. We both had "Mosselen met Frietjes"."

  • "Service has always been iffy here but the in attentive waitstaff continues to decline. I've always enjoyed the mussels but this time they were bland, rubbery and rather tasteless. I sincerely hope things pick up or I won't be returning."

  • "They were definitely having a bad night. The service was really lackluster compared to normal. The food was also just okay. The mussels are usually very good. This time they were not."

  • "I have eaten at Markt twice, with both my dinners being quite good. The place has a good feel, on a busy, but not deafening corner. I like it a lot. The disappointment last time was that what remained of my wine and my coffee were quickly removed when I used the bathroom. The bus staff is much too aggressive at clearing tables, even taking into account that it was a Saturday night."

  • "On Sunday May 11th (Mother's day) we sat at the long middle table closest to the back area of the restaurant. Our waitress was the rudest server ever. She poured everyone water and managed to spill each pour all over the table and did not bother to clean it until we tracked her down and asked. She seemed very out of it as if she was hungover and did not want to be at work that day. Not one person wished our mothers a happy mother's day at the table either. We had to ask around to track our waitress so we could order drinks and food because she took forever.We love coming to this restaurant because we live in the area but were very disappointed to bring our friends there this time. This waitress should be fired."

  • "We had a reservation for our group of four this past Friday 4/30. Although we arrived a little earlier than our 8:00pm res. we were led to a table just outside the kitchen. Almost immediately servers started rushing through the swinging doors bumping into my spouses chair just about everytime! The hostess was accomodating and led us to the bar to wait as, according to her, a table was about to open up for us. Fortyfive minutes later we were seated :( No bartender to serve us as the hostess had to do double duty & make us drinks when she could. Needless to say a poor experience for all."

  • "Very attentive service, great menu selection that changes up old favorites, and not a rushed meal. A good vibe from the neighborhood and crowd, without being overly trendy or high-maintenance. Also made same-day reservations and there was no problem for a noon-2pm brunch! "

  • "typical Saturday afternoon brunch scene - very loud and very crowded. Service suffered for it - but food was good. A bit over-priced: Lobster Bisque for $12?! "

  • "The food wasn't bad, but nothing to rave about. It wasn't great, it wasn't terrible. I'd say the same for our waitress. She wasn't blatantly rude, but we found her to be generally unattentive, and she seemed annoyed when we asked for anything that wasn't an additional order - i.e. salt, pepper, and ketchup - which should have come without asking with our eggs and fries."

  • "I do not live in the area so I relied on OpenTable reviews to choose a restaurant. This restaurant had very good reviews so I decided to give it a try. I ordered Tuna and my husband order lobster. My tuna was ok but the tapenade was over powering and did not belong with the tuna. My husband’s lobster was grilled and tasted burnt. It seems everyone was ordering mussels so I guess that is the entree to order at this restaurant. The service was good and the waiter was very friendly."

  • "Our food was very good and there is an impressive selection of beers. Markt is a comfortable place for food and conversation; service was also fine. We were a party of four, and we would go there again."

  • "I came here for my birthday dinner and enjoyed the whole experience. I started with the french onion soup, which was delicious. It was your standard french onion soup but had I believe what was bread crumbs on top of the melted cheese, which made each bite slightly crunchy and offset the softness of the bread in the soup. I then had the lobster in the pan, which came with julienned vegetables in a slightly creamy white wine sauce. The lobster was huge and I took more than half of it home. The best part of the meal, however, was the fries. WOW. They were crispy and just had the perfect texture. All of this topped off with a Kriek lambic (cherry beer) made for a great meal. Our waitress was great as well."

  • "I came here with my family because it was relatively close to a movie theater. We came here for Christmas day. The atmosphere inside was nice. I sat at the bar while I waited for my family to arrive. They had a nice selection of beer and wine. When ordering the server was very helpful with beer suggestions being that the list is extremely long. The mussels were ok. Not the best but definitely not the worst. My family enjoyed their meal. Would come back to enjoy a interesting beer at the bar."

  • "Very cute and pleasant place to have brunch. They had an extensive menu so it made it really easy for everyone to find a dish they liked. It was a bit noisy when we got there (like all NYC restaurants around brunch time) but simmered down by 2:30. Overall a great experience and I would definitely go back!"

  • "Took out of town friends here for mid afternoon brunch/lunch on a Saturday. And have to say, not as good the first time I came here. Service was ok and food was just ok, nothing stellar or anything to write home about. Though the frites are very good. Had the Tartare accompagné de frites because another reviewer raved about it, but completely fell flat for me. Basically a piece of raw meat burger, and chef complained when asked to be heated. Guess he was insulted BUT hey, whose paying the freakn bill here! Anyway, with so many "good" restaurants to choose from in Gotham City, can take this one off my list at least for now. Worth a visit, perhaps if you happen to be in that neighborhood. First time here was great not so the 2nd."
