The food and drinks were fantastic, the atmosphere was homey and intimate- not too loud or busy (as far as colors and music etc.). The staff was friendly and the set-up was beautiful.

Average at best. When we arrived with a reservation no one greeted us. they kept walking by. Finally we were greeted the host stated that he assumed someone was helping us.Service was average nothing special. Food was good, we ordered steak, lamb chops, and seafood. We ordered our dessert to go. At best an average dining experience.

This place has changed hands frequently. Good place to dine hosting a client, or with your partner. It's kind of out of the way; not much to do nearby. Good food options and wine selections.

We had a small office get-together of 10 and were given a private room, which was excellent. The calamari appetizers were very tasty. The special was chosen by several of the people and they all had food to take home. The scallops and pasta were very good and the server was attentive. Overall good experience. Only reason for a 4...

My wife and I had a really good dinner at Mark's last night. As you enter the restaurant, you will notice a very small bar toward the back. They have a very limited number of draft beers but the variety of styles is good. They have an extensive wine list. The bread they brought to they brought to they table... More

The "new" waitress was very nice, but pretty hopeless, even though she had been there a couple months. Slow delivery of drinks and food. She didn't know there was a gluten free menu, and was not knowledgeable about most of the menu. Forgot to bring steak knives for the lamb chops - which were uncuttable without. The food was fine....

We are sorry you didn't feel as if your experience was more than just average. It was a tough night with the furniture market going on for sure, but that's no excuse. We apologize for the let down. Please allow us to try again in the near future. As Always, thanks for sharing your experience on Trip Advisor. More

Mark's is rather short on vegetarian entrees. The calamari fries were OK- nothing great. The ostrich that a friend had was delicious. The crab confit slider another friend had (a small plate) was good. My pork chop was OK and my husband's duck medallions were delicious.They substituted veggies for the carbs . My coupon did not include alcohol so we... More

The service was friendly and attentive. The menu had a good variety of options -- e.g., duck, calamari, ostrich, Kobe beef, scallops, etc. The trout potato fritters were an interesting twist on the tater tot. Members in our party particularly enjoyed the lamb chops and the salmon. The roasted duck special was well seasoned with Thanksgiving flavors and paired well... More

I normally just get a glass of wine when I go out to dinner, but I saw there was a blueberry jalapeno margarita special and decided to change it up a little. When I say this drink was amazing, it doesn’t do it justice! The glass was rimmed with pink Himalayan sea salt, and the drink itself could best be... More
