Pretty good for Gainesville, not great overall

I've definitely had a better steak, but I haven't had a better steak in Gainesville. If you want a steak in Gainesville and you are willing to pay a lot of money for it, this is the place to go.

If you want a great steak, this is the place for you. The food is traditional and fantastic. The bar is good, and the wine list is solid. I normally come here for business or date night.

Service was excellent. Lacked ambiance. French onion soup excellent. Then, martini had no liquor taste at all, soups (crab bisque-tasteless) were stone cold, caesar salad sent back-brown on all edges. Worse yet, peppercorn sauce on steak was tasting like sour cream not peppercorn as expected. Best was the plain coffee. Would we ever go again--NO. For the price, Harry's, Vellos's,... More

My wife and I went there recently to celebrate our son's graduation from U.F. The food was very good as were the drinks. Service was good. Not a lot of ambiance though. I was a little surprised when the bill arrived and glad that I had credit cards with enough room to charge it. I would never have had enough... More

Gainesville has many fast food/chain restaurants and Mark's Prime Steakhouse is a good alternative. They have a varied menu so you can eat 'large' or "small". The top sirloin and NY strip were delicious. A nice assortment of sides included tomatoes and mozarella, crab bisque and cauliflower casserole. We'll be back. Parking is on the street so be prepared to... More

We were very excited only to be very dissapointed after waiting over an hour for 1 slab of meat per plate. Nothing else. Wait staff never explained it was ala carte, which would have not been a big deal if we had known. we got some bread about 10 minutes before the meat arrived. Thanks for ruining our company Christmas... More

Atmosphere is awesome-beautiful stained glass inset "window" in the ceiling. We came for dessert (consolation after horrible Gators Homecoming game) and it hit the spot-pumpkin cheesecake and chocolate brownie torte. Also had a chocolate martini (delicious!) Prices were a bit steep but you pay for good food and atmosphere
