The lamb was a bit dry. Good bone marrow though. Half chicken was really really good. One of us had a brisket which was very moist, tasty and great flavour from the sauce. Duck and waffel was an unexpected combination but it turned out to taste good. Pork was quite ok and very tasty.

I'd been hearing great things about this spot for months and I finally had lunch here. My salad was just incredible, fresh, flavorful and filling. The fries were amazing and came with a "mayo" sauce that was so much more! I also had a side of mustard and was blown away by it. Seriously, when is mustard good enough to... More

I have been here twice in the last few months (I visit for work) and both meals were excellent. This review is about my first visit about 6 weeks ago, more or less. I visited on a Friday night, after 9pm, and sat at the bar since I was solo. A cocktail to start (they have a great beverage program... More

In town for a meeting and snuck in some time for a quick lunch. Hoping to avoid the usual, I asked my friend "Google" where we should go and it pointed us to this place. "Pointed you - how?" Glad you asked. I looked up lunch menus and this place on their lunch menu had a "Grilled PB and P"... More

Black Market has been at the top of my must-try list for longer than I can remember and it lived up to expectations. The signature burger - a mix of beef and lamb - was exceptionally moist and the pork chop may have best I have ever had. Oh, so tender. And of course, we had to get the Duck... More

They have great food here, definitely out of the ordinary. Be sure to try the pickled appetizer. Also they a great list of beers to try. I want to try them all! It does tend to be a bit crowded and loud, but I think the food makes up for that.

Arrive early for a good spot at one of two main tables. It's a tight squeeze next to the bar. Plenty of drinks, but a tad limited on the food side; however, the food is delicious. No reservations taken. Great atmosphere.

What's not to like about this place? Great atmosphere. The community table rocks. Awesome wine and beer menu. Rotating menu items. Love the pickles. Nothing bad to say. Love this place!

Service was excellent and the food outstanding. The brussels sprouts salad was very original. Oh and the burger is totally worth it. Eat the burger quickly while it is hot and juicy, don't let it sit on the plate too long, you can talk afterwards!

I like this place for big groups where you can seat on the communal bench-like table. Otherwise you’ll be sitting next to strangers which is not bad except when on a date. The food is excellent if adventurous and the drinks are well made. They recently (or at least recently to me) introduced a menu of bourbon flights.
