Great food, great service

One of the better meals in Gainesville. Ate at the bar, service was fantastic. We both had the filet mignon which was cooked as ordered, split a salad and baked potato.

We found this place to be a mixed bag. The service from Stacy was excellent. The food on the other hand had some problems. We both ordered seafood and perhaps that was a mistake at a steakhouse but the food was only lukewarm. It tasted good so we didn't send it back or anything but our side dish of cauliflower... More

The food was great. Had a small steak with potatoes. Great service. I was surprised by the staffs resilience dealing with my dad whom has owned a similar style restaurant for 11 years. You pay for what you get. The prices are certainly justifiable. I'm just surprised this isn't the #1 restaurant in Gainesville. 10/10 would eat at again.

It was a wonderful meal. We had the Ravioli w/lobster for apps and it was soo good with big chunks of lobster. The she crab bisque was creamy and full of crab. I had Grouper Santa fee and it was very good. My son had Swordfish and there was none left. My husband had the Ribeye and it was cooked... More

On our visit I wasn't sure we could top other places we've been but Marks Prime was so awesome! The selections were fantastic, the actual food was so delicious! We had lobster ravioli, pork chop ( best ever), petit filet or mixed grill .... Everything was fantastic! We split the Cesar salad between 3 of us and we all had... More

Bartender was very friendly and made the meal more enjoyable sitting at the bar, she recommended a great bottle of wine, Horse Heaven Hill H3. Will go back again.

Great happy hour prices. Less selection on the food & a little bit on the expensive side too. Margaritas & Mojitos are really fresh.

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

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 prices in... More
