I discovered Markt on New Year's Day with my boyfriend and a couple friends. The space was really great - although the tables were close together, the ceilings were high, so it didn't feel too crowded. The atmosphere was really that of your typical European bistro - bustling and busy, but also somehow relaxed and comfortable. I could see myself sitting in there with a friend for hours. The staff were friendly and helpful, giving suggestions on their delicious desserts (I recommend the Dame Blanche!). It was really great to find an authentic piece of Europe in the ultra-trendy meat-packing district. And the food was great! Excellent fries!

Gorgeous selection of Belgian beer (domestic won't cut it anymore!) fabulous menu, beautiful atmosphere. Pricey, but memorable!

I must admit, I was a bit apprehensive about this place being that it is located at what my boyfriend says is the "nexus of the universe". However, my nervousness was immediately put to rest by the warm service and the beer list. With many draught and bottled beer to choose from (we recommend Leffe Blonde & brown), we settled into our menu. Starting with a seafood sampler/raw bar ($49), we figured we'd peruse the menu more before ordering our main course. The raw bar was huge, so we were too stuffed to eat anything else. Go there. Its great.. but save room for a main course.

I love that little corner of the meatpacking district--in fact, I especially loved it before they remade that wonderful abandoned corner building across the street into some sort of sceney restaurant--Markt has very nice outdoor seating and fine food...I would go there for steak tartare and fries and a raspberry dessert ale. However, the crowd that Markt attracts is haughty as hell. They're so busy with themselves. The service has been friendly and not snotty when we've been there, but I still always feel a little bit like I'm at some horrible prep school event.

I am a happy man tonight. I went to the Markt in the Meatpacking area. It is a truly Belgian place. That means friently people, great food and Duvel served by people who know what they are doing. I am a Belgian businessman who has been working in New York for several years and always taking my business clients to more "established", highclass restaurants. From now on, we will dine at Markt, where I can show them really great Belgian food, served in a traditional, welcoming style but in the most exciting area of New York. Markt is the best!

We've been coming here a few times a year since they opened. My best friend is Belgian and she says a dinner at Markt is just like being at home. I think the food is fantastic and very reasonable.... a whole lobster served in the pan is still only $29.00 and a huge pot of mussels is $14.00!! Since the neighborhood has gotten so trendy, Markt is busier than ever. Still, the manager remembered us, the service was fantastic, the food perfect... and we had our usual wonderful time.

I have lived in NYC and been a total foodie here for 11 years. NEVER have I been treated so RUDELY as I was at Markt. My party of 4 showed up on time at 8:30 for our res. We ordered generously, our total about $115. After we paid, we sat and talked for about 10 minutes at our table. The manager had the nerve to tell us people were "waiting" for our table and that we were requested to get up and go to the bar. (he did offer a round of drinks there, although that was no consolation) I have been going there for their mediocre food (I live nearby) since they opened. Never again.
