Black Market Opinions?

Going Saturday night. How long do you think the wait will be if we get there around 7:00. Also what do you all think of the place and what are the best things to order? No need to suggests the re-opened Black's- there is no room this Saturday night. TIA

  1. My husband and I go to Black Market about once a month- we've been for brunch, lunch, and dinner. The wait generally grows from about 6:30 on until about 9:00, but at seven it might be about 1/2 hour or 45 minutes. We've been lucky- we've only waited a significant amount of time once, when my parents were in town. Both of us like the place, it's very good although not excellent.
    Go for seafood- on Tuesday, I had a great rockfish surrounded by clams in a wonderful broth, and my husband had the barbeque shrimp. The soups are always good, and the wine list is well-chosen. We both really like the atmosphere and the neighborhood- those are on par with the food or even above.
