    Amazing food and people. However it is very loud which takes some of the experience away. Other than that, one of the best places to eat in all of Baltimore.

    Went here on a date with my boyfriend and it was a vibe! Our waitress was very friendly and helpful, I wish I remembered her name. The food was great! We loved everything- Crispy Lobster Fingers, Steak Frites, Spaghetti Crab Meatballs + French Green Beans. It was a busy Saturday night when we went so it was a little loud but overall 10/10, definitely recommend!

    The Food Market is one of our favorite date night spots. Everything we’ve tried has been fantastic. The brined fried chicken, short ribs, and the French onion ring soup are especially great. We will definitely be back again.

    Sat immediately with our group of 4 reservation. Great service and quality food. On every “best brunch in Baltimore” list. Drink prices are high but expected that. City block location so parking is not real easy. Expect to walk a block or 2 but the neighborhood and food/shopping options in Hampden location there are good. Will go again for sure.

    This place is our family's favorite for great southern-style food in the Hampden area of Baltimore. It's always a little noisy, but I don't mind. The fried oysters with two sauces is my favorite! Can't wait to go back.

    Fantastic meal. Brussel sprouts, onion rings, short rib & cast iron skillet were the best we’ve ever had. Definitely plan to come back and try other items on the menu- it was tough choosing! Brandy was our waitress and she was attentive & friendly. Nice atmosphere for a date night! Glad we tried this place!

    Ambiance and drinks were great!! Food was just okay…crab omelette lacked flavor. Pork brunch dish lacked flavor. French toast was good. Shrimp and grits had great flavor but not enough grits for the amount of sauce; sauce was also too oily.

    I always enjoy dining at The Food Market. The staff at both locations is always courteous and provide really good service. This time we were at the Hampden location and sat at the bar for Happy Hour. Our bartender, Jasmine was awesome !! Food was delicious (as always), the vibe is always festive and chilled and the service was great! ALWAYS A GREAT DINING EXPERIENCE! I’m biased because The Food Market is my favorite place to eat.

    I had never been to the Food Market, I made reservations for my sister’s 40th birthday and mentioned we’d be celebrating that. They welcomed us with birthday greetings and a birthday dessert. The food was excellent and so was the service. I can’t wait to go back.

    Delicious, inventive dishes served in a lively, neighborhood favorite. This time, we enjoyed the jammy sandwich, decadently full of blueberry jam and a crab cake sandwich bursting with huge lumps of sweet crab meat. We always appreciate the refreshing non-alcoholic beverages, which are more than virgin versions of their fortified cousins. A must visit.

    I was visiting Baltimore for the first time and tried out the Food Market thanks to my friend. It was awesome! I am so happy that I made a reservation a few days ago. The food was great!! I strongly recommend Shishito Peppers, Amish Pretzel, and charred Octopus. For the main dish, everything was great: sea bass, tuna, and cast iron steak.

    Overall, I had an amazing experience. From the moment we arrived, we were escorted to our table. The server immediately took our drink orders. The food prices are reasonable. For example, Crab Cake Sandwich with Fries was 26$, which is a good price. It was great energy.
