This is a neighborhood gem. We enjoyed one of the last warm fall days sitting on the open porch for brunch. The eggs benedict with the house cured salmon was delicious and the french toast came with sweet fresh berries. A lovely place to spend a late morning with your honey.

The food is always very good here, but like all of the Black's restaurant chain, it's over priced. One of MoCo's best dining experiences, even with the occassional train going past. That's why we keep returning.

Two other couples and my wife and I dined at Black Market Bistro. So we had a variety of dishes to sample from over the course of the evening. All were delicious and very nicely presented on the plates. The service was attentive and very polite. We were not rushed, but we let our service person know that we had... More

Dinner review: Good Malbec to start. Mushroom pizza (4 stars) was very delicious with hearty cubed mushrooms amongst smooth pecorino. I was pleasantly surprised by the tinge of sweet honey that did not overpower the balsamic. Black market vegetable plate (2 stars) was really disappointing. Carrots were the only veggie not overcooked -- there were deflated looking eggplant, brown soggy... More

I've eaten lunch at Black Market Bistro many times (never dinner) but have never taken the time to write a review. Until today. Today was very special as it was the most beautiful Fall day and we got to enjoy lunch outside. It's the ambiance of this little treasure that makes it special although getting there can be a trial.... More

We've been here many times and the food is always good. In fact, it was the best ever last night. Service was alao very good. Very charming atmosphere. Only negatives--loud train whistle as it passes the restaurant and the prices are gradually increasing to a more expensive area.

Have been to this restaurant many times over the years, and it just keeps getting better. First, the ambiance is charming both inside and out (weather permitting). Next, the service is really terrific -- from the time you are greeted by the hostess until the waitress serves you dessert. The menu has a range of prices that will make everyone... More

We called the restaurant and were given an 8:30pm restaurant. The host told us that half of the tables were held for "walk-ins." We took a long cab ride from Gaithersburg to enjoy a decent meal in a special place and when we arrived, the host wouldn't seat us because "all of the empty tables were being held for diners...
