My wife’s steak fritas was chewy. The quality of meat should be much better for that price.

The food was amazing, the cocktails were amazing, the price for the portion size was amazing. Everything was perfect except for our server was a little slow and we saw a mouse run across the restaurant at closing time 🙃. It didn’t stop me from being very pleased with my meal.

My Girlfriend & I had yet another successful experience at The Food Market. It was relatively crowded for a Thursday so make reservations. We were seated right away and our Waiter was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. We ordered the cheesesteak steam buns (WOW), big ole' Mozzarella sticks, crispy lobster fingers and truffle parmesan fries & everything was so tasty and flavorful. We tried the "Think Pink" cocktail and that was delicious also. I highly recommend that you give them a try, great staff and a nice restaurant overall. Keep up the great work everyone, we'll definitely be back!

Menu is getting a bit too busy. Too many choices. Scallop dish was strange. Duck confit was good.

Nice meal, apps and drinks for 2. $200 including tip.

We went for branch and order the following: French toast dippers, Jammin good sandwich, and the turkey crunch burger. The French toast had no flavor not even a slight taste of cinnamon. The jammin good sandwich was very dry and you could not taste the jam. The turkey crunch burger didn’t have any flavor either. The potatoes and french fries were good. The complementary donuts were very tasty.

We like Food Market a lot. It rarely disappoints. It seemed that the wait staff wasn't up to snuff for brunch yesterday. We were with an out of towner and he loved the food and the vibe.

Perfect for date night! The food is upscale comfort food at its finest. I got the pickle brined fried chicken and my husband got the steak frites. Both were some of the best meals we’ve had in years.

A must-go place in Hampden (or when in Columbia, that location is great, too!) Excellent service and the food is outstanding. Cocktail and wine offerings perfect complements to the menu.

The restaurant is honoring the social distancing recommendations which is great, and gives you a little more breathing room (what a difference in the amount of people dining here pre and post COVID!)

Great anniversary dinner!! Buffalo pickles and tuna meatballs were great appetizers - unique and flavorful. Chad’s beets were also delicious, very fresh ingredients. The grilled bonzini and crabcake with lobster Mac & cheese - both amazing! Cool atmosphere! Definitely recommend

The pork belly and duck were very good. Beware of the mozzarella sticks, they truly are big and there are 3 of them.

Food was tasty. Small portions. Hence, the 3 stars for value. High noise level which can be fun or annoying depending on your mood. Not a romantic place. But lively. Decor good.

Asked to sub chorizo for boar sausage and was told 3x that the kitchen refused. My bartender gets 11/10 for handling the situation so well but I have never had a kitchen say no, especially because there weren’t many other options. I’d go back but maybe not for brunch. Drinks were 12/10.

I used to live in Hampden, but I moved to Denver 3 years ago and hadn't been back in about 2.5 years... so Food Market was tops on my list to get back to. And, as would be expected, they didn't disappoint. The food was great, the drinks were great and Brandi, our server, was a total rockstar -- navigating an exceptionally busy dining room and still making sure we had everything we needed.
