We had reservations for Mother's Day and were seated right on time. Our server Nick was very attentive and friendly. Our food did not come out all at once, but there was not a big discrepancy so it was not a big deal. Overall we had a great meal and a nice time. The space is beautiful!

Pros: parking, ambience, downstairs market, polite wait staff.

Cons: service was slow, food was just okay,

Summary: 818 market is beautiful, sleek, and clean. I went on a mothers day so I expected them to be a bit swamped. Ordered tacos to start the meal, however three charizo taco took over an hour to arrive so we didnt bother ordering anything else. Had an empty glass with no drink for quite awhile too. Im going to give them another shot because the place was gorgeous and everyone was polite, but be weary on busier weekends, and if your hungry go somewhere else first.

Food was outstanding. Mother's Day brunch and kitchen was slammed, food came out slow but staff was attentive and more than made up for the wait. Great atmosphere, definitely going back.

The service was terrible. We ordered two entrees, they came out separately. We were able to eat halfway though the first entree before the second one came out. Their crab cake was one of the worst I’ve had. This place is definitely not worth the money.

The meals came out at different times and the stake was over cooked. It was ordered at medium but when it arrived it was well done. My and one of the other patients got our steamed shrimp appetizer well after we finished our main course my shrimp was a little too well cooked. It’s a nice restaurant and the food usually is good at lunch time. This was our first visit for dinner. I’m willing to try dinner one more time but not with a group of friends. I would rather invite them to Sunday brunch. Sunday brunch has been very good as well as the service. It would also be nice to see an expanded dinner menu.

Group of 9 diners all trying 818 for the first time. One of the best quality meals for the money the group has had in the area. Unfortunately, the service was abysmal. One teenage server taking care of the entire restaurant (which gradually filled) for the evening and it was her first job as a waitress. She got almost no helpful assistance from the kitchen. All of the courses arrived to the table late. Most of the courses arrived to the table out of order. We had to constantly remind the staff of our drink orders. Manager was called to the table. He offered only excuses and no compensation - you could smell the indifferent vapor seeping from his pores. Your best bet here is takeout because the food was terrific - compliments to the chef.

Our meals came out at completely different times. Everyone was finished eating before the last person got their food. The food was delicious though. Our server wasn’t very attentive but I think he was the only server for the whole restaurant.

I hate doing this because it is a local establishment, but I'm hoping they get better from feedback instead of feeling offended by honesty. We gave them some leniency on our first visit, as this was their first attempt at a brunch and wanted to let them grow into a better, well-oiled machine without complaining.

In this, our second visit for brunch, we looked forward to the pancakes we had on their maiden voyage on Easter Sunday. The pancakes were good, better than the typical, dense bombs you would get at a chain breakfast restaurant, but not as good as the initial iteration we had on Easter. Those Easter pancakes were heavenly, very crepe-like, and the right amount of butter and syrup to accompany them. The pancakes we had today were a little heavier and absorbed the small ramekin of syrup in a heartbeat, which means flagging down a busy server to get a second serving of syrup was a task in its own right.

The biggest misstep from this brunch service was when I raised a concern about a blonde hair stuck to my last piece of bacon. I mention the color of the hair merely to serve as a reference point that it was not mine or my wife's, of which we both have brown and black hair, respectively. When I raised my concern to our server, he politely took it away, and I was then expecting a manager or chef to apologize for this unappetizing event. Instead, they brought us three more pieces of bacon, which we did not ask for or at this point wanted, considering the hair in my previous batch.

818 needs to work on their customer service and make sure the customer leaves happy every time. Unfortunately, this lack of effort by the management leaves a bad taste in our mouths, literally. I am not 100% sure the chef or manager knew about the situation or if the server diverted that authority and tried to fix it independently. Still, in either case, this is a situation that makes us less likely to come back for brunch until we see a positive trend in reviews in the future.

As a Catonsville resident, I was excited to try out this new place. It is a food market, deli, wine and cheese shop, and also a bar and restaurant on the 2nd floor. They were listed as a participant of Baltimore County Restaurant week, so 4 of us went. We were seated and given the menu, but no mention of the special restaurant week menu. When we asked, the waitress had no idea that they were supposed to be participating. We ordered a bottle of wine and a cheese plate. The cheese was good, but so cold, you couldn't really slice it, even the soft cheese. (It should be brought to room temp before serving). I asked about the lamb ragu served over spinach noodles, and the waitress said it was really good, so I chose that. Two of our group ordered burgers, the other, a chicken sandwich. We ordered another bottle of wine, but they were out of it. However, there is a large wine department within arms reach of our table, so we asked if they couldn't just grab one from there. She said we could, but they would charge us an additional $8 corkage fee. Nevermind, we ordered a different wine from the menu. The 3 sandwiches were brought out together, however my lamb ragu didn't come out for at least 10-15 minutes later. Not OK. My pasta was not spinach pasta, but just regular pasta. I asked the waitress, and she said she thought they were out of the spinach pasta. Again, they have a whole market downstairs, perhaps someone could have found some? Or at least, let me know? It was really good, however, and the sandwiches were good. They really just need some better management to keep things on track. Our other two dining guests said that was their 3rd time there, and pretty much the same kinds of issues. I doubt we'll go back, which is a shame.

818 has a great ambiance, but the food and service were just okay. While everyone is friendly the service was slow
Very good cocktails and dessert, but both main courses were in line with major chain restaurants, but double the price.

Loved the atmosphere. Was a great experience. Enjoyed just walking around and taking in all that is offered. Our food was presented well, served hot! The waiter was a little slow getting back with us before we ordered, but overall he was helpful. We would definitely come back and recommend 818 Market again.

This was our second time visiting 818. They offer a very limited menu as it is, but they were out of certain dishes by 7:30. While the food quality/taste is very good, food and especially drinks are over-priced and under poured . . especially for the area. While other local establishments have decent crowds, very few folks are dining here (at least when we visit). Unless the owner has deep pockets - not sure this one will make it.

1/2 the tables food was brought out 5 min before the other half. The pancakes were brought to me cold, my friend ordered the steak and eggs dish and asked for her steak to be medium rare, it came out medium well after being the later arrival to our table. The reason they get 2 stars is because the manager was very apologetic and only charged us for the mimosa's that were ordered.

Wanted to love this place - it's got a great market downstairs, fantastic location, and overall nice ambiance. However, the service was terrible and most of the food was not good. My husband's chicken was very undercooked and pink, plus the menu said it was a stuffed chicken with chorizo - no stuffing in sight. We would have sent it back but honestly, we had to wait so long in between even seeing our server, that we didn't want to stay any longer than we had to. The waiter forgot our appetizer, and we had to ask twice for it - waiter never apologized and brought it halfway through our main meal - dropped it on the table and literally said "here you go." My pork loin was very dry and overcooked, and our friends both got a chicken sandwich that was overcooked and dry. The tuna tartare and the root beer cocktail were both very good, but everything else was a huge disappointment. I would go back for a drink, but not for a meal.

Great, attentive and friendly service. Tables were well spaced. We got seated near the stairs/entry, so a little noisy (the market was still open and they were grinding coffee, as well as people checking out, coming and going). The cocktails and wine selection were stellar. The duck was very disappointing, not tender or crispy, overall bland dish. But everything else was great. Tuna Tartare and Pork Belly were well seasoned, great presentation. The Brussel Sprouts, I would perhaps commit crimes for, they were incredible!

The highlight of our evening was having Nick as our server. He was very pleasant, courteous, and attentive.
The downfall was the drink and food items. We've been to this restaurant on a few occasions. We are less impressed after each visit. On this particular night, we ordered the chorizo-stuffed chicken. There was NO chorizo stuffing. Nick was unable to explain why, so he took the plate to the chef for explanation. When he returned, he said the chef told him they were out of chorizo, so it was stuffed with chicken. Chicken-stuffed chicken??? Thats just chicken, folks. That's also false advertising. In addition to the chicken, we ordered the falafel and lamb chop small plates. They were ok, but they both came with the same cucumber salad and sauce. They might think to mix things up a bit and eliminate the redundancies of flavors. The menu is small enough to be duplicating tastes. Lastly, we order the beignet and coffee bread pudding. Nick did tell us that the texture was weird but to give it a try. He was very right. It was weird. We would not order this again.
This restaurant is a couple of miles away from home, but we think we'll drive a little further for a better culinary experience.

We had a lovely time dining with friends at 818 yesterday. This was our first dining experience there and we were very pleased. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and the ambience was perfect. We will definitely go back. So great to have such a special place 5 minutes away from home. We may even try walking there some time.

Ambiance was decent, food was so-so, our bartender was friendly, but the lack of systems was a miss. While sitting at the bar & in the middle of ordering our meal, we were interrupted by other employees twice who simply walked up next to us & asked the bartender to make them a drink for their table. It was very weird. The biggest issue at 818 was the way the short, bald manager was treating the other employees. He was berating the bartenders & servers right in front of customers, saying things like "Don't you have a brain?" and "Try using your words." It was shocking & unprofessional, his attitude was just a total turnoff & I felt bad for the staff.

Our family of 4 ate Easter Brunch at 818 Market. It was our first brunch there, but we've gone before for lunch, dinner, and tapas. Every experience is wonderful! The food is elevated and interesting, but not pretentious. Our kids loved the breakfast sliders (breakfast sausage, maple aioli, brioche) and the avocado toast. We loved the steak and eggs and the BLTP (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Peaches on Texas Toast). We finished our brunch by sharing a couple of strawberry shortcakes, on biscuits our server said were made in-house. Every bite was amazing! This place does great craft cocktails and their team had built that into an impressive mimosa list. Service was friendly and professional. On the way out, we got a housemate quiche in the market downstairs, for breakfast tomorrow. Definite A+ - can't wait to go back!

The food was outstanding. Oysterd on half shell delicious and varied kinds. Small plates of lamp chops in cucumber sauce,, sliced succulent duck, and a marvelous pastry tart filled with a mushroom mixture were prelude to what one Baltimore native claimed to be the BEST crabcake he’d ever had.
The saffron house-infused gin and with champagne cocktail was delicious. The server was cheerful and totally efficient; every staff member greeted us with a smile and offered help. An outstanding birthday celebration with delicious desserts, a candle, and a song.

Excellent atmosphere. Everyone inside was truly wonderful. Julia, our server, was perfect. Not overbearing but attentive and pleasant. Food portions are more European in size, which means you get a serving. Not 2 or 3, so you don’t feel bloated at the end of your meal. Everything about this says return.
