I went with friends for drinks and music. Service was friendly but totally missed "the mark." It took quite a while to get a wine menu, and then quite a while longer to actually get drinks -- about 45 minutes altogether. The waiter never did...More

My first visit to The Mark. The menu was short but as we found, very good. They do not serve a huge variety of food but what I saw was very very good. I had the salmon which was cooked just perfect. I will return...More

Based upon what I'd read in TripAdvisor, a recommendation from the front desk of my hotel, and the fact I am staying in the downtown area, I chose The Mark for dinner. For a middle of the week evening, the place was hoping! The bar...More

We usually like to have one nice (expensive) meal when we travel and chose this place to be it, but unfortunately, it was not the best decision. Service was good, as was the steak but the pasta was only so and so. Service was good,...More

Reservations were made for a birthday dinner. Took over an hour for the food to arrive, and two pieces of salmon were forgotten and had to be brought out late. The menu is limited and pricey. Wine menu was fantastic, and good wine was indeed...More

Had 10 days in Bakersfield so made the rounds of restaurants around the Padre. Went to The Mark for a steak dinner. The service was indifferent and while decent the food was nothing remarkable. Much more interesting places to go in the neighborhood.

This was a great night. Probably too much wine but what a list. I even found a great Bordeaux on their list as well. Service was top notch and food was delicious. Would definitely recommend and it was easy to get back to my hotel...More

The Mark is a beautiful restaurant with great ambiance. Unfortunately, the service and food did not match the premium prices being asked for the food. Our server it seemed was only capable of doing one thing at a time. She would forget items that were...More

Wish we would have had dinner here. Casual chic restaurant in an area with few options. We had cocktails in the lounge. There was a gentleman belting out Frank Sinatra tunes and he must be popular because the place was packed. No bar menu. The...More

Casual dressed nice is appropriate. Concert t-shirt and jeans? I'd consider that too casual. This is a place where people come to be seen so most patrons are dressed up a bit.
