    Good service and ambience. Some of the food was under seasoned. I had high hopes for the fried green tomatoes but they were a miss. The short rib was amazing! 😊

    I have had several dinners at Food Market, all of them really good. Maybe because it was Father’s Day, maybe for some other reason, the kitchen was really slow. My cocktail came in a tiny glass, my crab cake had shells in it, and one order was completely screwed up. Our server was very nice, but we had to wait 40 minutes for dinner, and one person had to wait another 10 minutes. We finally started eating and sharing because what we had was getting cold. It was really disappointing.

    Great service, entree was excellent, the lamb chops for the small plate portion as an appetizer was not worth it, was a little disappointing. Overall everything else was outstanding shout-out to the crab balls spaghetti my party love that. The bronzini was great and I think the Baltimore club was awesome, according to my sister. Great place to dine or celebrate a special occasion. If you're into the dessert as I am, the key lime pie was awesome the next day. Final question at the table was would we come back and everyone said yes!

    Our waiter Paco was very polite. He wasn’t intrusive but also he made sure he was accommodating. My breakfast turned out excellent but unfortunately my better half eggs were over cooked.But Paco made sure that everything went efficiently, He brought out new eggs at my partners request. The bar moved kinda slow but other than that eve rey thing went great for a lazy Saturday especially with “Hon Fest” surround us been here plenty of times will definitely visit again.

    Delicious and eclectic dishes in a fun, vibrant atmosphere. My teens and I went for brunch and we love that they have real non-alcoholic drink options. My daughter had a refreshing blueberry lemonade; a welcome change from standard juice and soft drinks. All of our meals were incredibly tasty and the service was warm and expedient. Order the mozzarella sticks - trust me, you haven’t had fried cheese like this before and the fra diavolo sauce will kickstart your taste buds. A must visit!

    Delicious food in a lively space. A good amount of options for both folks that enjoy plant-based or meat options. I also appreciate the NA cocktail options, the Gucci Lemonade was delicious. The only bummer is that the take-away box for leftover was plastic. I would prefer this to be compostable. Love this space and look forward to going back.
