Was down for Super Bowl and went to Phoenicia on Saturday night after checking into hotel. Tons of food, lots of variety. Service was a little slow, but friendly. Food was good. Location is ideal, right in the middle of the downtown hotels.

Everything I've tried here has been fantastic, and at great prices. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu (the halibut in parchment is a favorite), but you really need to try the daily specials. They are always delicious and a real value. I don't usually go for specialty drinks, but these at MKT are different and delightful. I... More

This is unlike the one on Westheimer. The restaurant and food store are together with the bar off to one end. We found the Sharma area and had wraps. They were large and tasty. The decor is very simple with tables in a hallway between the store and the bar. The price was very reasonable.

This place is attached to Phoenicia market but functions as a standalone bar and restaurant on its own. They have five dollar glasses of house wine which is what we tried before heading off to the basketball game. I tried the red blend which wasn't bad.. I had two of them in fact. Service is quick, waiters are friendly.. good... More

My wife and I took my mother-in-law to Phoenicia Market Bar on Saturday for brunch. Our first time to Phoenicia and it did not disappoint. My MIL and I had the black pepper waffle with braised lamb and pecorino romano, while my wife had the waffle and fried chicken. My brother-in-law had the Ham Solo pizza. All were absolutely fantastic,... More

We had been to Market Bar at least 5 times in the past. We always enjoyed our visits. The food was good quality and tasty, and the service was reasonable. However, the last visit was very disappointing. First of all, we realized that one of the best of items on the menu, Moroccan Sliders were not available anymore. Secondly, the... More

I had a lamb wrap that was excellent as well a fresh shrimp spring roll, also good. Bought a little packet of German Speck which was delicious. They have an isle of pistachios of different flavor/spices thats pretty sweet. Just go and buy a bunch of whatever and eat some of it at the tables, you'll be happy.
