Mealey's Table reviews from OpenTable diners

    Beautiful restaurant, excellent service, truly outstanding food, and closed down the day after our dinner. I don't know what happened, but it's heartbreaking to lose such a special place so soon.

    This is the first restaurant meal in a long time where everyone in our party left thinking, "Now, THAT was a great meal!" The ambiance is one you'd expect to find in a big city restaurant. The food was perfect (creativity/quality took priority over quantity). And the use of local sustainable products adds to appeal. This is definitely a "find" and, once word gets out, will make New Market, MD foodie destination.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/24/2012
    Having been a customer of the former Mealey's Restaurant (before "Table" was added), my wife and I were terribly disappointed with the new setup. There were no selectable items on the menu for customers with special needs. We had to ask that our food be made "special." Most items have a garlic or onion base. The jazz music in the background was too loud and distracting. The new Mealey's Table is an attempt to bring a stark, chic, eclectic, New York style to a small, quiet, country town; very out of place. Even though the wait staff was friendly and helpful, Mealey's Table certainly did not work for us. We will neither return to nor recommend this restaurant to our friends.

    Excellent. We went for our third anniversary and we're so glad we did. We didn't go to the old Mealey's but from what we heard, we wouldn't have liked it very much. The decor, service, and food was all top notch. Plus, there are some real gems on the wine list. Give it a try. You won't regret it!

    We went for a girls night out. Delicious food, cooked to order. Expect to be there for some time. Not good for kids at dinnertime. We were there from 7pm to 10pm. Pricey for New Market, so I would recommend this for a special occasion. The side dishes were especially delicious. We shared fried green tomatoes and grits with goat cheese. Yummy.

    Excellent, tasty, very well presented food, combined with superb service makes this a place we will be visiting on a regular basis. Oh, and nice smooth jazz as low-key background music was quite enjoyable. Overall, we were very, very pleased. This was our first visit, but certainly not our last. We enthusiastically recommend Mealey's Table.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/13/2012
    The acoustics here were so bad that the constant din was similar to eating in a cafeteria and between that and the restaurant's radio being too loud, it was difficult to carry on a conversation with the person on the other side of the table. Carpeting the bare concrete floor would go a long ways towards solving this problem. The person I was with requested that the radio be turned down and, to her credit, the waitress accommodated her. We were there for Mother's Day brunch and the food was take-offs on traditional dishes. For example, I ordered Shrimp and Grits, but what came was not any kind of grits I have ever seen. Although somewhat good, it was a very soupy version which would have made any true Southerner cringe. I do not recommend.

    Dined on 5/12/2012
    For Mother's Day Weekend brunch, chosen for Saturday to avoid the usual main day crush, we hoped to find Mealey's a quiet respite celebrating quality local fair. Instead we found a small jazz band setting up & then proceeding to play in a lovely space, but with the cavern effect of high-ceilings and polished surfaces and not enough thought given to sound. We were relegated to eyes and smiles as we were unable to converse. The service was good if not as attentive as it should have been given the number of staff in the vicinity. The food was tasty but not impressive though the underlying quality of the products was clear. Mimosas were OJ with just a splash of champagne, sorrowfully not the reverse.

    Mealey’s Table isn’t what you expect. The historic exterior suggests a period dining room and a comfort food menu. In reality, both the room and menu are urban and modern. The dining room is spartan, with bare gray walls and a cement floor. Neither curtains nor table cloths soften the cold tones and hard edges. They’re not shooting for warmth here. The menu is nouveau locavore – local farm ingredients elevated to haute cuisine for well-endowed checkbooks. Individual preparations are hit or miss, though they all look nice. The wine list consists of a wide sampling of local selections, which are expensive by the glass. This restaurant would be comfortable downtown. Whether it will succeed in the country remains to be seen.

    It was a great experience eating such amazing food! We had drinks, appetizer, main course and dessert so it was a hefty bill but worth it. It's an opportunity to try new things and even the way every day items are cooked is like it's brand new and the most amazing thing you ever ate! And you must get a dessert, they are out of this world! The food was a little slow arriving but they are still new and it was worth the wait. Highly recommend this place!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/2/2012
    The food was excellent although a bit unusual for this simple meat-and-potatoes girl, but my husband loved all the new taste sensations! An added plus was the fact that the food was all locally sourced. Our waiter was very knowledgeable, attentive, and helpful with his suggestions throughout the meal. The ambiance was a bit austere and the lighting a bit dim (romantic?), but since they've only been open about a month, they're still "finding their stride". All in all a unique and pleasant experience.

    This is not the old Mealey's! Looks completely different...much more modern. Farm to table food was delicious! Very interesting small plates and entrees to try. Service was good but can be more refined and better timed. Will definitely head back for another meal.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/27/2012
    The very small amount of food that was provided was good. The menu was confusing and did not adequately inform the customer what they would get with the meal. There was very little flexibility for the customer to choose items. It appears that no market analysis was done to determine the interests of the customer in New Market or surrounding towns by the menu selections. The prices were very high, especially considering the very, very, very, small amount of food that was provided.

    Due to the nature of the farm to fork philosophy the menu changes as local ingredients are available. The on-line menu changes but does not keep pace with what is being served on a particular day. The menu choices on the day we went was seafood heavy. The presentation for all dish was nicely done. Flavor was excellent and all enjoyed their selections.

  • There are a few things I feel
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 4/21/2012
    There are a few things I feel could vastly improve the experience as the food was amazing! First off, the restaurant is dimly lit and the menus are printed on beige paper with brown ink. None of us 40-something diners could read the menus without straining or reading glasses. Our server, who seemed very interested in our neighboring table and the Scotch they had brought for dinner, did not bring us bread, water refills, or lemon for our water unless prompted. While our fries and fried green tomatoes were served piping hot, our pork chop dinners were barely lukewarm. Our waiter never checked back to inquire about our food which we we ate as the temperature did not affect the delicous taste. Some server bumps, but we will be back to try again

    8407 Kitchen Bar really promoted that the managers opened up this place, so my boyfriend & I were intrigued and had high hopes. It was BYO because their liquor license wasn't finalized, but they did have a local winery come by our tables for samples. The menu is farm to fork food (sort of like Founding Farmers) (their menu changes daily) We ordered: -Garlic & Potato Soup w/ some type of croquette (recommended by the Chef). We were warned it was cold, but we thought we'd try it anyhow. It tasted like ranch dressing, soup-style. -Crispy Soft Shell Crab (entree) was crispy only because they put this sunflower "breading" around it. When I think crispy, I think fried chicken crispy; other than that, it was quite soggy, which was supe

    One week in, they were still working out the kinks. Very noisy and food was hit or miss. Hopefully they address the noise as the kitchen will probably settle down with time and hits its stride. Fried oyster appetizer was exceptional, mains ok, desserts disappointing. It will be interesting to see how the crowd who knew/loved the former Mealey's establishment will respond to the "farm to fork" food is art approach and the minimalistic interior. It seems like they are going for a very different demographic!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/14/2012
    For a restaurant that had just opened, we had an enjoyable experience. Though there were a few kinks to be ironed out in their service, we have to give Mealey's Table a solid thumbs up. If you're returning to Mealey's Table expecting similar offerings as what was served by the former Mealey's, you will be in for a surprise. The fare is geared towards a more exposed / sophisticated palate....so if you are into a hearty portions and old fashioned "meat and potatoes," then you might be better off spending your buck elsewhere. The atmosphere and decor was a nice change....updated, but with a respectful nod to the prior restaurant and its history.

    The food was exceptional, along with the presentation. For a restaurant that had only been open a couple of days, service went smooth and the staff was very helpful and knowledgable. Love that the owners are using local farmers and merchants to spread their fair. Don't believe you will see one of those giant SYSCO trucks dropping off the same food that most restaurancts regretably serve. Did, however, miss the quaint colonial tavern atomsphere of the old Mealeys. The new look is mordern, but somewhat loud. I will be back!

    The focus on local, artisianal foods is great. The portions are smaller than patrons of the "Mealey's of old" are used to, though. Everything was very tasty. The ambiance is modern and trendy, but comfortable now. Probbaly the prices will have to come down and/or the portions will have to be larger for the restaurant to be fully appreciated in this town.

    This is not your mother's Mealey's, nor should that have been expected. No such restaurant could survive in today's market. Mealey's Table is shooting for a fine dining experience with contemporary Napa-style cuisine and prices to match. Since it only just opened, diners should expect an evolving experience. The interior is spartan, and the bar is not yet operational. Music comes from a stereo on the floor. The wait staff is learning. Diners should expect to see an ever-changing menu that reflects the availability of local ingredients and the chef's attempt to find his audience.

    The flavors were good and unexpected - the meatloaf had a slight foie gras taste which was okay but not my favorite. The servers need a little more knowledge of their product and / or how to explain what you are getting. For their first week all is to be forgiven - will be going back soon.

    We visited the newly reopened Mealy's in New Market during opening week and were very happy with the results. We ordered the pork chops and meatloaf and both were quite good. The pork was my favorite though. The organic greens from the smalls menu made for a nice salad. We also ordered a side of roast potatoes. These were great. Like gourmet fries... garlic, oil, and herbs. We could smell them coming. Black Ankle winery was there pouring wine since the liquor license isn't in yet. The best Maryland wines I've ever had. They don't taste like typical Maryland at all. More like California or France. The inside is nice and clean with old wood and brick. Grey epoxy concrete floors and some odd lighting choices detract from the overall charm.

    Negative and positive things to report... 1. that this place is not at-all kid friendly. One of the servers scoffed at the coloring books we brought along. We were not offered a child seat... not sure they had one. There was no kid menu (we asked) and there was no ketchup for the slider burger(not on the menu) that "Chef" was able to put together for our children. 2. while we were seated right away, it took 15 minutes for a server to come to our table. 3. On the bright side, they were able to accommodate several unusual food allergies and the food was good. 4. we love that they are inviting local wineries in for tastings. It was great to taste Black Ankle wine since we've not had a chance to get out there.

    The food was very tasty and nouvea. This is not your mother's Mealey's--if you are not a foodie, the descriptions may be of little help:fennel tartar (raw fennel?), Deconstructed Ravigote. No comfort food. We went on the second night Mealey's Table was open, so the wait staff was still pretty green. Water goblets were down to empty before they were filled and when our server dropped a spoon, it took about five minutes to get a new one, so my guest used a fork to stir his coffee. Prices were a little high for the appetizers, but the portions were generous. I hope they get out of town foodie crowd. I will try it again since I live nearby. No Liquor license yet, but you can bring your own and save money! Can't wait to try the bakery!

    Dined on 4/11/2012
    So happy to have this location in New Market open again. The decor has a fresh, modern feel, but still maintains a nod to the past (check out pictures on their Facebook page). The food incorporates local ingredients (England Acres, South Mountain Creamery, ...) depending on what's is season. I had a bone marrow appetizer (that was a new one for me); it came served in the bone, and you scoop it out onto some nice toasted bread. Both entrees we ordered were beautifully plated. The Maryland Pork Chop with Red Cabbage Puree, Potato Mousseline, and Braised Cabbage had the components of a traditional chop, but interpreted in a modern way. We will definitely go back again.
