Just had appetizers and drinks at the bar this visit but really enjoyed it. The manager came over and talked with us. On a previous visit many years ago I had one of the best steaks I have ever had anywhere. They shared their method of searing their steaks with me and I have tried to duplicate it at home.... More

So we came here for dinner with the family. I was a bit suspect if Mark's could deliver simply because I am so particular about how my steak is cooked. I am a Pittsburgh Rare kind of girl. Knock his horns off and bring his butt to me! Nice cold center ;) I ordered the Wagyu New York Strip special... More

Joshua was out waiter on last visit for dinner and even the manager came by our table twice. Twice - to check on us. Super dining experience. This is a... More

We went for my 30th birthday and I was quite pleased. The food was delicious. The steak could be cut with a butter knife. Quite impressive! Our server was lovely as well. It was a fine experience. The romantic atmosphere sets the tone for a fine dinner.

The steak was brilliantly prepared. The sommelier was not very helpful and was actually very annoying. The food was great and so was the rest of the wait staff. I'll definitely return.

The food was very good, but the drink and food prices are astronomical. I was with a group, and did not buy any adult beverage, and my tab alone (with no dessert) was over $70. They are always pushing add-ons without telling you the price. My steak was good but not great. The sides were enormous, but nothing special, and... More

My first visit to Mark's Prime was exceptional! Waitstaff was very attentive. The bleu salad was put together with a unique combination of flavors to me that turned out to be really good. I loved their fresh break. My filet was cooked perfectly, and it was so tender. I also had a the twice baked potato which was good, but... More

My wife and I had not been to Mark's for several years, we had a wonderful time returning. I had the Delmonico, which was perfectly done and well seasoned. The Delmonico potatoes also were well received, along with the Oysters Rockefeller. Good wine list, reasonably priced for a higher end steakhouse.
