Great food & drinks. Did a great job at following Covid safety protocols, took temp upon arrival & had tables spaced out, all staff wearing masks. There are too many yummy menu items to choose just 1 or 2! Will definitely be back.

Love the covid standards that are being maintained. Everyone on staff was friendly and personable. I’ve been to this restaurant many times and love Chef Chad. It was a great experience and my marketing manager still hasn’t stopped talking about how amazing everything was!

Love, love, love most of their dishes. I got the fried chicken breast for the first time. Very crispy and yummy, but maybe could have used more seasoning.
They are doing a good job with Covid rules, server was in great mood about it all and table on the sidewalk was very city life like!

Freaking amazing find! As someone who searches these places out and lives in the happening Philly restaurant scene the bar is pretty high. These guys nailed it. From service to decor. But... the food!!! Great food isn’t easy to find and you can’t just go by the number of stars. Pick this place if you love excellent food. You’re welcome in advance!

Food was great. The appetizers were superb. Dining outside in Hampden is always an experience. Can’t wait to go back when things are normal and we are comfortable eating inside.

This was my fourth visit to the Food Market. I’ve always had great food and drinks and was very satisfied, but this time it was just average. Everything was too salty. The service was ok. The tables were spaced so we felt safe eating inside.

Brunch at The Food Market is one of the best! This was our second visit for brunch and we could not pass up the french toast dippers. They are a decadent treat to start off with and I highly recommend those. The pretzels with beer cheese is another favorite. For my main course, I had the short rib benedict which was out of this world amazing! My boyfriend had the Baltimore club and loved it. The brunch cocktails were great too. Our server was fantastic, very friendly and personable. Can't say enough good things about The Food Market and we can't wait to go back.

The Food Market always knocks it out of the park. We dined outside and in the cold and it was still absolutely worth it. Their servers are so kind and knowledgeable about the menu, and the menu is bomb. Great cocktails and wine selections. Killer small plates. You can't order the wrong thing because there is no wrong thing. 10/10 would recommend.

Jennifer did an excellent job as our server. Make sure to ask for the Basil popcorn in case they forget to provide it. We truly enjoyed the Honey Brussels, Lamb Chops and Scallops Deluxe. I do not recommend the Barbecue Carrots whatsoever - way too acidic in taste. This has become one of my favorite restaurants in Baltimore so I will be back for sure.

The outdoor seating does not come with any heaters, and it is Hampden so you can sometimes feel like you're sitting in the smoking section. Our waiter was awesome, the food was great, COVID dining, not all together too relaxing.

My husband and I stopped in for brunch on our way back to DC from Delaware. We were running behind, but the hostess was (thankfully) super understanding and forgiving. Our server, Brandy, was so awesome. She has great energy and provided us with excellent recommendations. We started with the French toast and mussels. The mussels were cooked perfectly, and the broth was insanely good. I wish I could have ordered a bowl of it by itself. My husband had the breakfast tacos, and being in Maryland, I felt obligated to have the crab cakes Benedict. The tacos were almost too pretty to eat and packed in a ton of flavor. I received two generous crab cake patties with mine and was happy to not see them drowning in hollandaise. The Benedict paired really well with the house hot sauce (thanks for the rec, Brandy!). Also, do yourself a favor and get the habenero Bloody Mary.
