Flat breads are all great, and the tuna appetizer is spectacular. Last time I got the lobster, but it's all deadly... The filet... read more

Mark's is charming and the food is delicious! Don't miss the Albacore Sushi Rolls on the appetizer list. They are the best I have had and would also make a fabulous small meal!

Had wanted to visit another restaurant in the neighborhood but couldn't get in that night. That was the best thing that could have happened. The flavors of the food here are fantastic. My wife and daughter had the evening Snapper special and I had the San Blas Shrimp, very good! To start I had the Miso Marinated grilled beef strips.... More

Awesome place to eat! Food was excellent! Do make a reservation to enjoy your evening. Waiters were prompt and very friendly. After dinner, take a stroll to wear off the deserts.

We decided to have our anniversary dinner here and were not disappointed! The fish was fresh and prepared and presented perfectly. It came out hot and in a timely fashion. We were not hurried or delayed. The wine selection was sufficient and my strawberry colada was refreshing. The pricing was more than fair as well. One small tip..... If you... More

although we always try and dine seaside we couldn't resist trying due to reviews. We were not disappointed, the food was incredible. Our table had the ceviche, tuna tartar, spring rolls, beet salad, seared tuna, and macadamia crusted snapper. Every single dish was perfection. Prices were very reasonable for the quality. Will be sure to put on our list of... More

Perhaps our tenth visit over the years. Not as crowded as in the past. However the food is delicious and nicely plated and the standard of service remains high We started with Caesar salad and beet salad. Both very tasty. My wife had the salmon and I had the fish of the day. Each a margarita and one wine. Everything... More

Had dinner with my wife and the service was only out-matched by the awesome uniquely prepared foods. Luus was a terrific waiter and the soup, salad and entrees, were truly unique and amazing. Jan has got a special place here!
