I give La Food Marketa kudos for doing such a great job with safe, outdoor, socially distant Covid-era dining

The food was delicious from the Peruvian chicken wings to the salmon on gazpacho with cucumber salsa to the salad with salmon as well. Very filling and good service on the patio.

Food & drinks were good, everything would’ve been great if the establishment would invest in having some ceiling fans or regular fans for outside dining. We’re really trying to support some of our favorites during this tough time, so try to make it as comfortable as possible for your customers.

As my first time having lunch there I really enjoyed every aspect of the restaurant. Our waiter/ bartender Brandon was very attentive and knowledgeable, the food was very tasty and very happy they had options with no meats added. The outside sittings were spaced out and I felt safe. Will definitely go back!

We brought two people who had never been there before. Everyone enjoyed the lunch, but the bread pudding one person ordered for dessert was not enjoyed. Our server took it back and did not charge for it.

Love La Food Markets! We sat outside, tables were placed at socially distant locations on their large patio. Waitstaff wore masks, menus are all online so bring your smartphone. The food here is always delicious, and they have many gluten free options, which is key for us as there are two family members with gluten allergies.

Food was okay. I’m a big fan of the food market so I was expecting a lot more. It was also way overpriced for what you get. We started with the shrimp appetizer. It was pretty good until my husband found an insect in the sauce. We pointed it out to the waiter who apologized and took it away. Then we got tacos al pastor and chicken fajitas. There was a long hair on my chicken fajitas when they arrived (how clean is their kitchen???). The tacos and hairless pieces of chicken were just average, def not worth the money.

Considering the insect and the hair, I would have thought that they might comp the shrimp or, at minimum, have the manager come by to apologize. Nope. Nothing. We overpaid for very average food with disgusting add ons. We won’t be coming back.

I was a fan of La Food Marketa before the pandemic and am an even bigger fan now. I have been to a few other restaurants and felt they were not taking enough care. This place seems to do it right - masks, hand sanitizer on the tables and only online menus that you easily access by scanning the code on the table into your phone. As always, the food and service were wonderful.

Always enjoyed the place, however, menu changed and food became very typical, service fell below average. Hope with time restaurant catches up to previous reputation.
