“Very expensive for what one gets.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

The food is pretty good if very expensive but the wine at more than 3 times retail is ridiculously expensive so we do not go there any more.

“Great Steak Tartar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is one of Mark McEwen's restaurants that has predictable high end food. The patio in the summer is very nice. The dinning room is dark sometimes cozy and some times cold.

“Not my preferred choice for the day but it turns out pretty well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I had this post-holiday lunch with my friend. Bymark was not my first choice as it is typically business people doing powers lunches and chatting loud. Surprisingly it was very quiet that day which is conducive for quiet conversation. Maybe people were still on holidays. Food is ok and tuna sashima is very fresh, which is a nice surprise for a non-Japanese restaurant. The only disappointment is the soggy macrons in the petit fours, which I suspect they bought it elsewhere and not from the kitchen. Overall a good experience and I may rethink coming here more often.

“Great place. Safe for gluten free diners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

Another visit. Another great meal. The menu includes enough for most tastes. The chef has an excellent touch. Food is expertly prepared and they are great with gluten issues. Service level is high. A great spot. Too bad it is in a basement but you can't have it all.

“Nice Luncheon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

dark space, bit pretentious, but food is amazing...had the steak frites, which was done very well - a bit of an asian-fusion element to the menu, which i didn't expect
