I have been to Food Market a bunch of times for Dinner, drinks and brunch. Hands down I think brunch is my favorite meal to eat here. Maybe because they start serving early and I am an early riser, maybe because it's just loud enough after a night out but not too loud.

Reservation for late Saturday brunch. Pretty noisy until the restaurant cleared out. Good food and service. We were surprised we couldn't get a Saturday evening dinner reservation (we called Monday at 5:00 pm; nothing before 9:30 pm). A bit odd they take no calls before 5:00 pm ("number not in service" or something similar). We might give it another try if we can get a decent reservation.

The food is absolutely amazing , I’ve never had a dish that I didn’t love..... I come often especially if I have friends come from out of town, and they’re always pleased.... also a couple of times I had Jermaine as my waiter and he’s the best, very helpful & knowledgeable and keeps us laughing the entire night.... #favoriteplacetoeatinbaltimore.....

Wow, the Food Market really impressed me. The menu was whimsical and creative and the food was out-of-this world delicious. I'm still dreaming of the duck entree I enjoyed and pretty much going to be disappointed with all other food for the rest of my life. Oh well, worth it!

We made an 8:45 reservation and were not seated until 9:25. Once seated the food took FOREVER to be served. The Bison Burger (which we've had many times) had a different cheese (strong aged flavor) on it which ruined the burger. Also the menu was missing those less decadent appetizers which keeps one from getting bombed before dinner (Cocktails are amazing.) May wait to see what the spring menu has to offer..fun place...but menu needs some healthier options.

Once again, The Food Market provides an excellent dining experience. Our pre theater meal was every thing one wishes for when needing to make a timely exit to catch a show. Service was efficient and well timed and responsive to our need to hurry a bit. Our entrees were wonderful. My blackened tuna was prepared perfectly, even though I passed on the "rare" recommendation, desiring my tuna prepared medium rare. It was spot on and delicious. The apple slaw was an excellent side and combined well with the spicy blackening of the tuna. The wagu meatloaf was an excellent representative of a "comfort food" with a difference.
Great meal!

Went out to FM for the first time - date night with the hubby - food, cocktails, and service were all good. Only negative was our table was right by the entryway from the foyer into the main dining. It was distracting having every single patron walk by us and cold air kept blowing through the curtain - my husband was freezing (and he never gets cold). Was it worth the $120+ for the two of us to each have a cocktail, share an appetizer, each have an entree and dessert? Meh. This is more of a special occasion place for us in the future.

Excellent food and service! We went for my boyfriends birthday, we got the lobster fingers and beef Wellington bites for apps, for dinner he got the lamb rack which was amazing and my mom and I split the scallops and steak frites to make our own delicious surf and turf. The ambiance is very nice and not too loud, my mom is a little hard of hearing. Overall wonderful experience!

Okay but some serious flaws. My wife and I visited the food market after rave reviews from our friends and coworkers during Baltimore's 2018 restaurant week. We found the food to less than perfect due to some parts of the meal. The beef short ribs
, Although moist and cooked well, was covered is a super sweet BBQ sauce that lacked the depth needed with such a fantastic piece of beef. Although we found the Blondie to be delicious and addictive the toffee bread pudding was severely burnt on the bottom leaving a bitter after taste. The Food Market has great portions and service however we believe it misses on some of the fine details to make it above some of the other farm to table restaurants in the area.

Made reservation for restaurant week for early in the evening. Place was essentially empty and hostess seated us first at table by the restrooms and then right in front of kitchen. Hostesses should be accommodating. This one got a c-.! Chicken dish was very dry but spares ribs were delish! Great ambience. Will try again when not restaurant week.

Definitely make reservations.

You are seated close to others and can hear others conversation clearly. It’s a bit loud over all. Might be a turn off to some.
