Received an email 2 hours before reservation time that Markt was not opened. Had to scramble to find a restaurant. Very disappointing!

This restaurant is no longer open. I made the reservation through open table, but when I walked by, there's a sign indicating that it's permanently closed. So, don't reserve here!

They were out of salmon. They were out of coffee. Really. Out of coffee and salmon at 1:30 on a Sunday. The food was ok, not great, except for the shredded fried potato dish that came with the omelet. That was awesome. Dessert was delicious. Service was good.

Markt is an under-appreciated gem in the middle of Chelsea. The menu is top notch, with several Belgian specialties ranging from seafood to steaks, and the place always delivers a great ambiance with top-notch service for reasonable prices. Great spot for a casual date or a bite before a night out.

Markt is our neighborhood reliable go-to for brunch or special lunch. We sat just inside on a beautifully sunny though windy day. The side windows were open which let in the city sounds (and occasional smoker smells), but it was worth it. I hadn’t ordered the salade niçoise in a while and forgot how spectacular a construction it is that they serve! Quite a conversation piece! And delicious. The host recognized us as at least semi-regulars and welcomed us back. We’ve never been disappointed. Thanks again.

Nice Belgian style restaurant on 6th ave. Food was very good. I had the Blueberry pancakes with a side order of bacon. All food was fresh and hot. Was a bit pricey, $15 for three pancakes, but after all this is New York.

This was our first visit to Markt. Three of us enjoyed our meals (steak frites, coquille st. jacques, and moules frites, while one (skate) did not. Overall, a pleasant experience. Service was quick and the prices are reasonable. It's a nice place when attending theater at the nearby Irish Repertory Theater.

Host asked if lunch was business or pleasure, so was able to seat us at the perfect table. I have not been at Markt for lunch for about a year, and the lunch menu has changed with great new offerings - such as a crab salad sandwich. The basil pesto soup has also improved topped with a spoonful of basil-cream and a Parmesan cracker. Delightful!

Cute place. Was eager to try a different menu. Maybe moules frites should have been choice. I told my husband the lobster bisque was well reviewed. He ordered , but was told there was no puff pastry. Ordered a Belgian Pilsner, was told they were out. I had shrimp cocktail--tasty sauce, skinny, flavorless shrimp. Waterzooi was the consistency of clam chowder--very little chicken.
On the plus side, our waitress was delightful, and I like the decor. It looked like everyone was doing the mussels/fries, so I would go myself or recommend if that's your mood.

First time I’ve been here for dinner. Family get together on a weeknight and we were happy to get a table for 7 with short notice. Menu has a good variety of choices and everyone, including the kids, was pleased with his meal. The service was very attentive.

I've been here many, many times and generally find it a good value with professional staff and the waiter on our night was particularly friendly and helpful (not always the case here, they can be a little stuffy.) Unfortunately, a simple burger I ordered medium rare must have been more rare than it appeared and I actually got very sick as a result. It happens. But it certainly doesn't make me want to return after some 6 years or frequenting this particular restaurant. It's not an awesome dining experience. It's just solid. Nice upscale feel and, as I said, professional. Although this time might have ruined it for me forever.

Lunch selections nice, with fresh salads and nicely prepared fish. Beers good. Noise level not so good. Percussive, especially in the congested back area. For the older set: bring ear plugs and pretty much give up on conversation unless you yourself are a shouter.

Wonderful mussels and oysters, but the highlight was the best French Onion soup which warmed us up immediately on a windy cold March early evening.

I checked Vibrant Bar Scene above but that was the actually the main problem—I wanted a catch-up dinner with a friend, and sitting near the bar was deafening. It was very loud in the back room too. Great ambiance, high tin ceiling, attractive crowd, but LOUD.
Food & service good. (Lobster w pasta disappointing though. )

One of the oddest steak tartares I've ever had. A generous portion of chopped steak, but with no seasoning. There were two little piles of capers and chopped onions on the side, and a tiny egg yolk on top, but that was it. I asked for Worcestershire and Dijon mustard and mixed it myself.

Our server was lackluster at best. He spilled wine in our appetizer and just left it, didn’t offer to replace it. We repeatedly had to ask for plates and to have them buss the tables in between courses!! I have been here for brunch before and had a very nice experience. Perhaps because it was the Super Bowl we had he “b” team but i was embarrassed to have brought my employees for dinner. The meal was delicious but the rest was awful. I will not come back again. To top it all off: There was a mouse running through the restaurant- very unsettling.
