Market Table?

How's the food and drink at Market Table? Looking for a romantic spot comfortable for a lesbian couple's anniversary; hotel is in East Village.

    The food is nothing special, overpriced IMO and it's excruciatingly loud, and cramped. It is not at all romantic. Perilla, as suggested above, is a much better choice, but ask for one of the 2-tops next to the wall as opposed to the row of tables along the banquette, which are close together and can be noisy. I would also recommend Bar Blanc.

      I'm with the earlier "boring food" comment. It has good ambiance, but nothing more to excite me beyond that.

        It's a very nice place and the food is consistent and very good. Not mind-blowing but always a great meal!

          i went a few weeks ago and was pretty disappointed. it wasn't bad...just nothing special. i would look elsewhere since it is a special occassion.

          its a nice spot but the food has always bored me to tears. food-wise i prefer perilla nearby off west 4th.
