I've driven by this restaurant many times and thought about having dinner there, but it's only open Thursday-Saturday so I always seemed to remember it when it was closed. But I finally made it and it was a very pleasant meal. My husband had the...More

This restaurant serves healthy, fresh food in an eclectic but comfortable environment. The food is locally sourced & vegan options are always available. The staff is welcoming and knowledgeable. Perfect meal.

As most reviews may suggest, going to the Mark is unlike going to any other restaurant or bar in Olympia. Why? It is intentional and fresh. The intimate, sophisticated space invites you in with candlelit tables and enticing cocktail, antipasti, dessert, and dinner menus. Perfect...More
