Our server was outstanding!! The best service that I have had in a long time!
The beet salad was terrific as were the blackened tuna and mussels. Two desserts were delicious. The spacing of tables was a little tight, we thought, and the server was okay but not quick or friendly.
Went for a birthday and the service was fantastic. The food is delicious, they do not miss.
Always a great experience.
Great menu, great drinks, very nice way to spend a Saturday evening.
Our server was fantastic, and the food was great. Since being here last time they've spaced out the tables and added noise dampening which helped us have a better personal experience. The space was still full and loud but it made a huge difference. Thanks team!
Our waitress Josalyn was awesome. The food was delicious. The drinks were very very good. The ambiance was l welcoming. Will definitely be back
Great food . Great vibe. Will definitely be back with my boyfriend.
Our experience was lovely! I could tell that they were a little short staffed, but our server pulled everything off without a hitch. The food was delicious and the drinks were creative and good. I will absolutely be back!
Amazing food, drinks, service and ambiance! We loved it per usual!
Great time, great service. Second time and all was well. Will return.
Marcus was absolutely amazing. Thank you for making the experience a memorable one!
There is no use to have a reservation, even with one we wait for 30 min. Hostess was not empathetic.
We had a great time!
Food as always was delicious but the service was terrible. Disappointing because normally would rate it 5 stars across the board
We had the Bronzini and the Salmon dishes. Both were excellent. We had a wonderful evening.
The Food Market never disappoints. Great service and great food. It’s always loud there so it was expected.
Its always great food and great service! The Food Market never disappoints!
The experience at The Food Market is consistently excellent, and our visit last evening was no exception. Service and food quality were exceptional, as per usual, and the birthday greeting on the table was a nice touch. We will be back!
great food, great staff no wonder this place does so well!
Good Food for the price. Quick and outstanding service. Rarely am I disappointed.
Great service, great food, a little high on the price point but overall worth it & the drinks were amazing !
Started a little slow apparently was an issue with the server, then we got a new server she was super!!! Food and drinks were great! Had a wonderful experience!!!
My husband and I visited once before, but it was crowded and we didn’t feel comfortable sitting at a communal table, especially since TFM doesn’t ask for proof of vaccination.
We made a reservation and returned on 1/1 and were seated immediately in a nearly empty restaurant. I had seen the chef spotlighted on several shows and wanted to try at least four different dishes. We ordered the lobster fingers, the mussels, and the short rib dinner. I would have also offered the shrimp dinner (shrimp and grits), but I was full and couldn’t handle anymore food.
The food came out pretty quickly, and was piping hot. There was also a cute little dish of popcorn placed at our table and it was delicious. It almost tasted like it was tossed in truffle oil and topped with Parmesan and herbs. I could have ordered a bucket of just the popcorn!
The lobster fingers were decent - I mean, it’s lobster. If you mess up lobster, you don’t deserve to be called a chef - but the mussels were absolutely divine. That champagne cream sauce was everything I didn’t know I was missing! Hubby’s short rib was so tender, we could’ve eaten it with a spoon. The mashed potatoes were light, airy, creamy, and smooth. We both agreed that we could’ve done without the “hickory jus”, which was basically bbq sauce. Hubby even said his margarita was the best he’d ever had.
Overall, we enjoyed our experience and would definitely visit again.
Had brunch for 4 people and we all loved it. Food and Bloody Marys were all great.
Waitress was friendly and very efficient.
The food was outstanding and love the ambiance!
The Food Market is wonderful! However, the night we chose, 12/30/21, was packed at 5:30 pm which proved to cause a huge delay in the kitchen. The food, service, atmosphere was great and I Iook forward to returning soon. Thank you!
The food was absolutely delicious. It was my bf and I’s anniversary and the waitress acknowledged that we were celebrating, brought us new silverware after each course, was constantly refilling our waters, tables were cleared of any dirty plates, and our waitress even let me change a type of liquor in one of the drinks. Our waitress was just overall very kind and attentive and even brought my bf and I free chocolate mousse for our occasion. 10/10 would recommend to anyone
Fun drinks, apps, and atmosphere for a date night
The room was very loud and we were sat very close to another table. Otherwise the food at the Food Market is always delicious and the service was great.
Went for brunch. Good food, wouldn’t get shrimp and grits again. We sat at communal table and no one ever joined which was nice bc covid.
Wonderful brunch menu with a lot of variety!
Christmas dinner for work
Loved our first visit to The Food Market! Our server was friendly, informative and attentive. At his suggestion we shared the Back of the House street tacos to start: crispy chicken tenders with a sweet/hot sauce and veggie slaw. He also suggested my main, the Duck Parts, which had duck breast, a confit duck leg, cornmeal batter “funnel cake” over puréed parsnips, and blackberries. The flavors and textures complemented each other wonderfully. My companion had the Scallops Deluxe, five large seared scallops on mushroom and spinach risotto and topped with portobello slices. She actually moaned with pleasure at the first taste of the risotto Dessert was an eggnog crème brûlée for me and a dirt cup (chocolate mousse, whipped cream, chocolate cookie crumbles and gummy worms) for her. All was interesting and tasty, and just right in every way. The room had an active, happy vibe with both large and small parties and family groups with kids. The music was a bit loud for conversation, but not oppressive. We look forward to going back to try some of the other offerings!
Always amazing. One of our favorite restaurants anywhere.
server was excellent! food was great! The valet attendants were very respectful and polite. The Food Market is in walking distance (really only a couple of blocks) to the famous 34th St Christmas lights. wonderful evening.
Seating was cramped, but good experience
We ate at the Food Market for our anniversary this weekend. It was wonderful from when we entered to when we left. We ordered two appetizers to share: Cheeseburger empanada and mussels. We would NOT order the empanada again as it was a bit greasy and not much to it however the mussels were outstanding and a huge portion. For our main courses, we had the shrimp and grits dish and the duck part and both were excellent. The Heath Bar bread pudding was divine and they surprised by also bringing a chocolate mousse type of parfait to the table with a candle in it. The service was also outstanding!
One of the best brunches around town. I always feel welcomed and made to feel ‘at home’
