    Fun experience! Went for brunch with some girlfriends and had a ball. Food and drinks came out super quick even though the restaurant was full. Had the avocado toast and the turkey sausage tacos and both were savory and delicious ! Definitely will be back

    The Food Market was the perfect spot for a cozy brunch on a rainy day in Baltimore. I had the shrimp and grits, which was a healthy portion with massive shrimp in a delicious sauce. The cocktails are also spot on. Love this spot!

    The table are close together and it's an open concept. I've been here numerous times but this time wasn't as enjoyable. Multiple tables were very loud as though they were the only ones there. The service was great as usual, but the food wasn't as good as I remembered.

    Wow. Normally our dining experiences at The Food Market is most enjoyable. However our last experience the food was just ok. This was our first brunch experience and after checking out the offerings I was really looking forward to it. Three of us went to Saturday brunch. The tastiest and most enjoyed item we had was the Sausage Gravy Parfait. The Huevos Carnitas was delicious as well. Then the food quality took a dive. The Short Rib Benedict, the short rib was skimpy, dry, and flavorless which dampened the enjoyment of it. I got the Smokey Bowl who’s centerpiece are dippy eggs, which pulls the whole dish together, except whoever prepared my dish left my eggs more well done then drippy thus ruining the dish. We may have to give The Food Market brunch another try but

    Place is lively, seating is close - no social distancing here. No accommodations for persons allergic to pet dander. Family sat with their dog at the table right next to us, less than 2 feet away, without warning. Would have preferred to be asked if we wanted a pet-free area. Wont return due to lack of consideration for preferred pet free dining. Waiter was very personable, attentive. Food was okay.

    The food and service was amazing. I don’t understand the need to sit people so close together when there are so many empty tables. It’s ruins the ambiance when you’re trying to have a conversation. We literally had people’s tushes in our faces when they got up. Makes no sense.

    The food was good, the different size options for plates is nice when sharing. We had the lamp chops, curry green beans, cheesesteak bao buns, fried oyster bites, big ole mozzarella sticks, and one of their shrimp dishes. The food was all good quality, least favorite was probably the mozzarella sticks. Drinks were very tasty! Overall, I think the cost of the food is a bit overpriced for what you’re getting, but is alright for a night out! Ambience of the place is nice!

    The Food market has recently updated their menu and added some great appetizers and a couple of big plates which were really good! We tried the crispy squash and the corn off the cob beignets , we also tried their new scallops dish and the steak Frites, the duck and the cast iron steak, all excellent!

    the food and service are excellent. However the noise level is a problem. you cannot have a normal conversation with those you are seated with. Several friends no longer want to go there because of this issue. This is a shame because it could be our favorite restaurant, but we don't go often because no one wants to go with us and we will only go if we get a very early reservation.

    It was a birthday and engagement celebration. The food was incredible from the small plates to entrées and the cocktails were great too. There were at least five other things we wanted to order I just didn’t have any more space on the table or in our stomachs to do it. Andy was fantastic he was very accommodating, attentive and all of the staff was incredible from the hostess to congratulating us and mentioning the birthday too. All of the dishes were perfection and we’ll be talking about them for a while. I’m definitely hoping to go back soon. Thanks for making my fiancés birthday and our evening extra special. Get the mussels and keep the cream sauce to dip in your pasta from the delicious pasta and crab meatballs. We tried the cream and diavolo sauce separately they have a phenomenal flavor. Together, both sauces merried really well where we couldn’t get enough. The tuna meatballs, the seared octopus, pork belly and mussels packed in a great flavor without being too salty which is difficult to find these days. Everything was also perfectly seared or had a great crunch. I can keep going and you can’t go wrong checking this place out.

    The Amish pretzels with beer cheese and the cheesesteak buns were the stars. The Caesar salad, beet salad and shrimp in garlic cheese sauce were mediocre. The drinks - Mary Jane and The Mule were only ok. Quite frankly, I was disappointed today. I had not been here in over a year and it was not like it used to be.
