We arrived at the restaurant to find valet parking. First good point on what turned out to be a wonderful dinner and evening. Upon arrival the hostess showed us to the table they had reserved for us but said if we didn't think it was big enough, we could have any other table we wished. We did move to a... More

Went to the Gainesville location. Ordered the 11 oz. filet minion. Good meal and steak done to perfection. Only ate 1/2 as portion sizes were large, and wasn't overly hungry and asked for the other 1/2 to go. Imagine my surprise when the next day I find only a small portion of the steak in the to go box. I... More

The food and service were exceptional tonight. I adored my salad with Mark's blue cheese dressing. My 11 ounce filet was absolutely perfection, and nicely complemented by the mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. Excellent meal!

Popped in late and despite that Stacy at the bar greeted us warmly.. Many places would not be so gracious at 9:45! We opted for a Cosmo and a couple of apps. The lobster mac was the best I've ever had and loaded with lobster meat but not "soupy!" The crab cakes beat ones I have had in Maryland. No... More

Good salad and steak, ordinary sides w/o starch selection for those of us who are lactose intolerant, room much too cold. I prefer Embers but sometimes friends suggest Mark's. Wish Mark's would raise the temp in the dining room and not make me feel as though I were eating in the meat freezer.

Service was the best part of the meal but no better than any lower cost restaurant. New York strip, average (not worth the $). Sloppy plate presentation. Will not go again.

Excellent steak house, just what you would and should expect! Service was great and the steak was cooked perfect. Could not have asked for a better place to celebrate a birthday.

I wish I could give six stars. This is the best steak I have ever had! I always order my steak well done. This steak - cooked well - was so tender I could pull it apart with my fork. I am not exaggerating. It really was that tender. We will definitely eat here the next time we are in... More

I did have the petit fillet and was good as well as the Brussel sprouts which was a bit over done. But for some reason every time I eat here I get very ill in the middle of the night and not sure whether it was the she crab bisque I also had as the culprit. Very tasty but something... More

Dined as a large group for a business meeting. Amazing location. Amazing food. Amazing staff. The filet was delish. Valet parking available. Garage parking also an option. Definitely a must stop when in Gainesville.
