    Food was not hot, in fact beans/rice was cold. Taco was soggy/somewhat greasy. Very little spice (not meaning heat spice but rather flavor spice). I loved the place the first time I went and it has deteriorated considerably since. Not likely to go back

    Had brunch here this past Sunday and all 4 of us loved everything we ordered. If I had to nitpick at all, it would be the small size of the coffee mugs and our table was rather wobbly. I will definitely be brunching here again very soon. The sunken beef & bean burrito is absolutely one of my favorite things I've ever eaten! I could only finish half!! Also, do yourself a favor and order some pan de queso for the table.

    A consistent favorite that never disappoints and it was the perfect cozy spot for my daughter and me on a frigid winter night. There were new items on the menu for Baltimore county restaurant week and we were pleased to learn that we could order any of them along with regular menu items. The Beet "Ceviche", Jalapeño Popper Quesadilla, and Cubano Steam Bun were new items we tried and they were outstanding. The chefs here are masters at Umami and hitting all the right flavor notes. The Confetti Bowl is delicious and was enough to take home for another meal. The hardest part about eating here is trying to make choices, but that makes us look forward to our next visit. The music was a tad loud this time, but other than that it was perfection as always.

    Two us in our party of three ordered the fish tacos. We both agreed that the fish did not taste right, too fishy, and almost like the flavor of bluefish. When we asked the server about the fish, he said it was Mahi Mahi but did mention that other diners recently felt the same way about the off taste. The third diner was pleased with the chicken frajita dish he order.

    I like La Food Marketa because it’s casual, busy and conveniently located. Everyone seemed to like their meals more than I did. I love fish tacos & have eaten them there a number of times. Last nite, the fish was less than fresh and was so ‘fishy’ that I couldn’t eat it. Our server was nice, efficient and fast. The restaurant was very busy & he had a lot of tables to tend. I thought about sending it back (which I try not to do) but by the time he got back to us he already had our friend’s birthday cake and I decided to say nothing.

    Always wanted to try this restaurant and finally did with a friend for lunch. It was difficult to select a meal from the menu since it had so many appealing dishes. I went with the sirloin tacos which were delicious. A large serving for lunch, so took the rest home. My friend got the fish tacos and loved hers too. Definitely recommend this place. Freshly made and delicious food. Don't fill up on the fresh salsa and chips like I did!

    We sat at the counter by the kitchen. Being able to see how plates were finished was a turn-off. Staff handled food in an unhygienic manner. We lost our appetite and ordered just drinks and one appetiser, which can to use like warm. Lynn our waitress was very nice, despite the food. Don’t think I’ll be going back any time soon.
