Good food, but much too expensive

Mark's is the place to go for special occasions, if you can afford it. The steaks are very good, the sides are too, the portions are big, and the service is excellent. Still, they are a bit too proud of their food, because prices are too high for what you get. I have had better food at similar... read more

Mark's is a one of a kind steakhouse and luckily it's in Gainesville! I was lucky enough to have my rehearsal dinner at Mark's a few years back and have visited at least once a year since 2010. The food is impeccable. I had the BEST truffle risotto there probably one of the best things I have ever eaten in... More

Nice atmosphere, food was excellent for all four of us. Medium rare steak was perfect, as well as the well done one. The calamari was crisp, lightly battered. The sauce could have had a little more zing for my preference. Portion sizes were more than generous. Yes, it was a little pricey, but the service, and the food excelled; worth... More

We visited for a family night out (major celebration) with myself, my husband and our two children ages 10 and 7. (please let me clearly state, that we loved everything about our experience, but due to the cost will probably not splurge and bring our kiddos here again soon.) Since moving to Gainesville in December 2014 we've been looking for... More

Food was not impressive. Although the atmosphere was nice and classy. It's also expensive for the quality of food they serve!

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.

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.

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
