A quaint little place that you will enjoy with seating inside and out good location not far from where we stayed at the Bel Air Resort we could walk there. By the time you get there you are ready for a cold beer or what ever tickles your fancy meal are good and you can relax and take it easy... More

Beautifully presented, innovative and delicious food. An excellent dining experience, although can be a bit pricey. Service is excellent and Jan Benton has made the restaurant a delightful showplace to dine on any occasion.

Mark's was one of my favorite special occasion restaurants for years, but I have been disappointed the last few times I was there. The portions have grown smaller, the prices are higher, and the service is lackluster. During my last visit I ordered gazpacho "with shrimp" - twice the price of plain gazpacho. When it arrived, I had ONE shrimp.... More

We had heard about Mark's through a friend that has mentioned that this place makes a great martini. We dropped by around 6pm for happy hour. And they did deliver a great martini for my husband a fabulous margarita on the rocks for me! The service was fantastic!

Wow, don't even know where to start. There were 14 of us the first time and everything was so good we went back a second time. The lamb and tuna were amazing and the apple beet salad was unreal, Enjoy!

Food was excellent. View of courtyard was relaxing as well as the music. Favorite dishes were: Lobster bisque soup, Red snapper, calamari, Large prawn shrimp, and finally Salmon. We will totally come back! Highly Recommend :-)
