Went here on a Friday night with a group of friends. The food was outstanding. I had the "waterzooi"--the creamy chicken stew--comfort food with panache. For dessert, the trio of mouses with a fresh raspberry sauce was amazing. Several at our table sampled the Belgian beers. Everyone was very happy with their food and drinks. Though in a trendy area, there's not a lot of attitude. They seated us even though our entire party was not there yet, and quickly turned our table around when the last person arrived so she would not be sticking out in the aisle, in the way of the wait staff and other traffic. My only quibble is the place can get pretty noisy, but other than that the atmosphere is very pleasant. Open, airy, casual. Would definitely go back!

...perfect place to down a few delicious belgian beers, savor the hoegaarden moules, and indulge in the zesty lemon tart. get a table outside or even one of the coveted window side "indoor" tables. fantastic people watching, great ambiance, and attentive service. markt my words...belgian bistros don't get much better than this!

Entering this place, a "brasserie", you know what will happen: excellent service combined with good food. Belgian Beer is famous and is creating the atmosphere. I come back.

We used to live in the city and came here a few times. It's a great venue for brunch to meet friends and we always had good food and service. Now we live out of town we almost always come here if in town for brunch. Relatively easy to park and still good atmosphere, service and food. We book ahead but not essential for small parties (I think). Special mention should be made for the french bread. Having spent much time in France appreciating 'real' French bread, this is the only place I've found in the city that can compare. Being Belgian, though, I assume Markt is offering authentic Belgian baguettes, not French! Anyway, it's great and we keep coming back...

We arrived very early on a Sunday morning; therefore, we were seated right away and didn't have to wait more than 2 seconds to be approached by our server. The homemade waffle with fruit and whipped cream is to die for! The best waffle I have ever tasted. The bread basket and omelets were equally as good. However, the one downfall to Markt was the lousy coffee but the amazing food made up for it.

This is a great place for lunch before you head to Chelsea Market. Mussels and Frites are excellent, 6 different kinds. Fun city atmosphere, and our service was great. Pastis is right down the street, but did not miss it a bit. I've read other poor reviews about the service, but maybe they have a problem at dinner. It was packed for lunch and we never had to wait for anything!

I have to admit, after reading previous reviews, I was VERY hesitant about this invitation to dine at Markt while visiting NYC. I arrived early on a Saturday evening and made an "in person" reservation for 7pm for three ---- @ 6:30pm.... It was accommodated and from that point forward EVERYTHING was simply first class. My guests and I were seated upon their arrival at 7pm, and in the midst of a crowded and happily noisy venue, we were treated like singular guests. The food was wonderful, from salads to entrees, with our desserts standing out over the rest. I have already sent recommendations for Markt to everyone I know. Bon Apetite!
