    The service was bad. Our server seemed to be impaired. He didn’t help clean up when we spilled a drink; didn’t voluntarily visit the table, but showed up for his tip. BTW, unbuttoned flannel shirts over t shirts make the staff look too casual, like they slept in their clothes.

    First time here for breakfast. Loved dinner the last time we were there. Coffee and mimosa were delicious. My family ordered the monte cristo, Heath bar pancakes, salmon bacon and eggs and the shakshuka. Everything was delicious. The shakshuka was very hot but flavorful, new on the menu. We loved the free donuts to start.

    Service was very good! Food was hit or miss in my opinion. Some items were very good - Lobster fingers, crab soup, Brussel sprouts, crab cake, creme brulee; others not so much - sirloin was tough and a bit cold, Garlicky, winey, herby shrimp was so-so, etc... Was very open atmosphere with high noise level, so not the best for an intimate experience if that's what you are going for. I can see this being a great place for friends that want unique food and drinks.

    We had both a great food experience and not so great. My husband got the burger and loved it. I got the Seafood dish that was essentially shrimp and grits. The shrimp seemed a little chewy. The flavors of the dish were very good. Brussel sprouts small plate was amazing. If I were to return I think I would get several small plates and share them.

    All-around excellent experience at The Food Market. The cocktails and alcohol-free drinks were creative and the server was helpful pairing wines to our main courses. Our table of four shared three appetizers, all vegetarian and prepared gluten-free. We especially enjoyed the crispy brussels sprouts and marketa's street cauliflower. Our main courses were all beautifully presented and prepared perfectly. The desserts were excellent, and even my husband, who rarely takes more than a bite of whatever I order, happily ate half of the strawberry milk creme brulee. I would highly recommend The Food Market for ambiance, service, and, most importantly, great food.

    The decor is nice, modern interior. Food is very good. Love the complimentary popcorn truffle oil and Parmesan . We had the charred octopus appetizer and the mussels. The sauce was so good with the mussels we requested more bread to soak it up, twice,no charge. The confit duck gumbo was very tender and tasty, a tad salty. The spare ribs were excellent , personally did not care for the steak sauce on the sirloin but the stark was very good, cooked perfectly. Fries with that were amazing. I would definitely return

    Seriously, another wonderful meal at the Food Market. It was our first time in Columbia and we enjoy the other Baltimore locations. You won’t be disappointed and their staff was a major part of the dining experience. The four of us selected full to small plates and all were knocked away by our food. Well done!

    This was my first experience at the Food Market as I was celebrating my parents anniversary. We went on a Sunday evening and it was quite busy, but we received amazing service and were impressed all around. We started with the roasted nut medley that was seasoned in duck fat and brown sugar. 10/10 appetizer - sweet yet salty and just the right amount of fat. There was also complimentary popcorn seasoned with Parmesan that was amazing. My dad had the fried oysters and lamb porterhouse and both of these dishes were well seasoned and unique in flavoring. I had the short rib and it literally melted in my mouth. The mashed potatoes were super light and flavorful as well! We finished up the night with some desserts (pictured below) which were hot and fresh. The food was overall really delicious with a unique twist. The food made up half the experience but the other half was complemented by amazing service! Our server, Morgan, was SO friendly and interactive. We had a lot of questions on the menu and she answered all of them patiently while giving great service. She checked up on us at least 4-5 times outside of taking our order. The food came so quickly (which we were surprised as the restaurant was quite busy).

    Our party all ordered breakfast selections on a Saturday for brunch. The food was as delicious as predicted. I had the eggs benedict with the short rib- great combination of flavors and textures. So many great items it was hard to decide.
