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.

Took my wife to Mark's for her birthday and found the service excellent. Food was good but pricey. ($33.00 for the petite filet steak and grouper dinners). Al la Cart for the sides which were more than ample for two people. We ordered the Layonaise Potatoes and Asparagus for sides and were given large portions of each. The potatoes were... More

Very well priced for the quality of steak. Robust wine menu offering a number of options for more discerning palates. Truly professional steakhouse in the likeness of a Morton's or like a miniature Del Frisco's. The bar is nicely blocked off from the dining area as to not impede on your experience. Don't need to discuss the food. Everything everyone... More

Great steak but very expensive. Having just recently eaten at Berns in Tampa we found the steak comparable but value goes to Berns where unlike Marks steak comes served as a complete meal . Go for the steak and bring your wallet.
