My wife and I love Markt, and now are weekend regulars. The food is fantastic and the extensive, european beer menu with specialty glasses is great as well. Located in the Chelsea "meat packing district" it is in a fun, hip area with lots of other fun, hip places to go for drinks. Markt is a good value for the city. As Manhattan residents, we highly reccomend it!

My colleague and I went here for dinner with his girlfriend and we were all disappointed. Service: unfriendly and very unattentive. Atmosphere: mediocre (we felt like we were in a try-hard motel restaurant). Drinks: very small and overpriced (where do they get off serving 1/2-sized beers?!). Food: tasty but poor value.

I went there after work alone in search of a fruit beer, which was a bit overpriced, but on par with prices for the neighborhood. I ended up ordering food because the beer got to my head, and the food was fine. The bread and butter were delicious and though the waiter was quite friendly and courteous, I found that Markt was not the kind of place to sit and linger. I came early, before the dinner rush, and there were plenty of tables outside. I wasn't offered dessert, or coffee or tea for that matter before the bill was brought to me. I had money to spend, so I went elsewhere for dessert. I'd go back for a drink, but not dinner.

I had the pleasure of going to a different kind of restaurant for me. My friends and myself all had a blast. The 8 of us have never had a good time as we did on this occassion. We were there for 6 hours eating and drinking. The bartenders were great. The servers were at their best. The food was just incredible. Everyone has to go there for the atmosphere, and to just have a great time. I have been there 6 times in the last 3 months, and the food and service just gets better.

Poor service. My wife and I decided to have a small post-city hall wedding lunch at Markt and it was an unpleasant experience. 1. We arrived before the lunch rush but received our food 50 minutes after we arrived. Even worse, at leat 25 people who arrived after us were served first. 2. We asked the waiter for some milk for my 16 month old niece which never arrived. When we asked again the waiter snapped at my sister-in-law. 3. We waited 15 minutes after finishing lunch to order dessert and another 20 minutes before our dessert arrived. Without the coffee we ordered. The waiter claimed that there was no coffee guy. However, we saw others in the restaurant get a table full of coffee from the same waiter. We have lived in the neighborhood for 10 years and have eaten at Markt a couple of times. This will definitely be our last. However, if you like smug service, self-important stockbrocker types, and mediocre food, Markt is the place for you.

The food was fabulous, very European, and this is a great place to go with friends. It would be a little loud for a dinner date, but great for drinks as well as dinner in a group. Service was good.

Upon my recent 3d visit to Markt, I found the quality of the food to have dwindled, and the service abysmal. Our waitress obtrusively grabbed my friend's tissue-wrapped vitamins off the table to throw them away as they spilled across the table. She neglected to tell us the specials, and when asked, forgot what they were mid-sentence and had to return to the kitchen for a "reminder". She was also impossible to flag down for a beverage refill, or the check, for that matter. Plus, the tomato soup I started with was decent-to-poor, and my entree cod was lackluster and disjointed at best. Go for drinks; stick w/ a good Belgian beer.
