Always like the Food Market. Interesting takes on familiar food, and a few unusual items too. Always willing to remix dishes for the diner who wants something plainer.

The Food Market is a staple for really good food. Everything is always perfect from the appetizers to the entree. The problem is that there is never room for dessert. We love how they mix their regular offerings with seasonal and creative dishes. We couldn't dine here enough!

We got 5 different apps and they were all great, particularly the oysters and lobster fingers! Always great food; sitting near windows was a little colder but less noisy.

Always a pleasant experience. Food was good and appealing to the vegan, the vegetarian and the meat eater in our group. The ability to order differently-sized plates a welcomed touch. Friendly service also appreciated. The only detraction is the noise. It's not just a high energy space, it's a noisy one. Be prepared to talk really loudly if the restaurant is busy and you want to be heard.

We took another couple for dinner who had eaten there before, although I wish we had known how loud it would be. Very crowded, with a youngish crowd and we were seated right next to the bar. The braised short rib was very good as was the crabcake. Service was adequate and they did keep my water glass filled. Free valet parking was nice! We did catch wafts of cigarette smoke - coming from outside?

We've been to the Food Market on several occasions, and have never been dissappointed. The menu offers a wide variety of delicious options in a variety of sizes and price points. The chicken dish with mozzarella, proscuitto, roasted garlic potatoes, and broccoli was wonderful, and the leftover served as dinner the next night. Our party also enjoyed the scallops, and the shrimp dinner. Our waiter was wonderful, answered all of our questions, and it won't be long before we go back to this dining treasure in Hampden.

I recently ate at The Food Market for the first time, for Sunday Brunch. The service was excellent. Our waiter was amicable, attentive, and quick. Our food came out very fast after we ordered. The food was great, and so was the drink I had with it (the special mimosa). They kept our waters filled even after we paid the check and proceeded to stay at the table chatting. I'll definitely be going back, sometime.

First time at the food market. Great experience. Wendy our server was awesome! Not only did she take the time to go over a few questions I had, she did it with a smile even though it was busy! Food was fast, didn’t wait long between orders and was hot. Cool atmosphere and great food!

Best restaurant in Baltimore. This chef has created a menu where everyone can find something they'll love on it. The Heath Bar Bread Pudding is out of this world.

Food and service are spectacular. Noise is horrific . I have not been to the Food Market for at least 3 years because of the noise, I missed everything else so a friend and I decided to give it another try for Sunday lunch. Still impossible to have a conversation. I cannot imagine what Saturday night might be like. Makes me sad as everything else is first rate.
