    The food was delicious, as always. We were a little late for the reservation, but the restaurant was gracious enough to let the kitchen know once we had arrived. The food came out promptly, and our server was very attentive. La Food Marketa is a local favorite of mine, and I will be back to dine in soon!

    Food took awhile to come out and when it did my dinner did not come out until after everyone else’s. My friend split her dinner with me then eventually mine came out with just a “ the chef expresses that he’s sorry for the delay “ . I honestly think the waiter ( who did not write down our order)forgot . The fish taco which finally arrived was horrible. It was a fish stick wrapped in a tortilla. Will never order that again! The grilled cheese and soup was good and so was the hamburger in a tortilla ( which I ate 1/2 of from my friends order!)

    La Food Marketa remains my favorite restaurant in Baltimore. Its the value, diverse menu, food quality and prep that distinguishes it. My biggest complaints are the location in the strip mall, the fact that the restaurant is always a bit on the cool side, and the dining room layout does not provide much privacy. My wife and I sat in a booth at the bar and Ryan served us. He was jovial and attentive.

    I made reservations in advance for a table in the bar, which I have done at least 10 times. Upon arrival they said they had no tables in the bar because it was happy hour and they couldn't reserve tables there! The food was just ok, not up to it's usual. And, there was loud music playing which people had to scream at each other to talk over it.

    This is my favorite place to have lunch with my girlfriends. They have a variety of foods and everything I have eaten has been delicious. (Especially the salmon! So tender!) It has a cozy atmosphere and the servers give just the right amount of attention. (Enough to keep our drinks full but not too much as to interrupt our conversation.) Definitely one of my favorite restaurants!

    Food wasn’t as good as it normally is. It was underwhelming which was really disappointing. Our service was good but the drinks (which always take a long time to come out) they took a crazy long time. My husband went to the bar to order a drink while waiting for our table and asked about HH specials since they have them and the bartender said nine and wouldn’t take his order! It was so strange. He ended up walking away and just ordering at our table. But each drink took about 20-30 min to get. My chicken sandwich was really disappointing. The Yuka fries were delicious as always. We have been to La Food Marketa more times than I can count but we unfortunately won’t be coming back anytime soon. It just wasn’t worth it.

    The food was great. I loved the black bean soup and the portion size is quite plentiful. The chicken and lime quesadilla was very tasty and their chips with guacamole was the perfect start to the meal. The service was excellent from the greeting at the hostess area through the meal. The restaurant is small so it can be a little noisy but my overall experience will keep me coming back.

    This was our second visit, and this time we came for brunch (Sun, 12/4). We love the Street Cauliflower and complimentary chips & salsa. Everything was good, but for some reason, our food took a lot longer than usual and the restaurant only had a few customers. We saw other two-top tables come in after us and got their food way before us. As we looked at the kitchen/bar area, there seemed to be some confusion going on with our order - it appeared that maybe our order didn't go in, or it was accidentally given to another table. We were fine and our server and the manager checked on us and were very attentive, but just surprised on how slow it took. I would also suggest that any servers with long hair, tie it back away from the face. One server had very long hair - it was half braided on the side with the rest hanging in front of her face, not too far from falling into people's plates, if it hadn't already, as she ran them back and forth from the kitchen/bar area. Nobody likes hair in their food. We would still return, as I think they were having an "off-day".

    As always, the food is delicious and well presented. The atmosphere inside is a bit claustrophobic with close tables. The bar clientele has changed and was louder with a bit of inappropriate behavior from some patrons.

    I have been in this restaurant at least 10 times… and every time something happened.. the waiters forgot to bring an appetizer… they didn’t bring the main course to the guests at the same time…. and yesterday the chicken wings were terribly dry, they were not crispy, it was impossible to bite off!

    We had a wonderful dinner in celebration of my son’s birthday. The food and service were excellent. I really appreciated the plate of churros with birthday candle for dessert. The only thing that I would change was the very slippery floor - it’s really a hazard.

    I was in town visiting my friend and she brought me here for brunch. It was so good that we can back again on the same day for dinner! Everything we ordered was culinary perfection. The loaded yucca friends were so crunchy and delicious. The brussel sprouts were unbelievable. There is a line between crispy and caramelized and burnt, and the chef went right up to that line and sat on it. Would also recommend the southwest egg roll style empanadas. The sauce on those was 14/10. And let’s talk about the drinks. The mojitos? Literally perfect. You get the point by now! Eat here! You will not regret it.
