    The food was really great, steaks were cooked to perfection. Our waitress was very pleasant although she make a few mistakes through the evening like ordering me a third glass of wine and then charging me for it. I didn't say anything because she was trying hard. Also it took a long time for food and drinks to arrive at the table. This wasn't her fault but she kept having to tell us that the kitchen or bar were really backed up. Our dinner for 2 took about 2 and a half hours! Thankfully we didn't have to be anywhere.

    If you're in the mood for a great steak, Mark's is THE place. I had the Delmonico with creamed spinach side, both of which were excellent. Others in our group had various steaks, mashed potatoes, and salads, all of which were pronounced excellent. We also had a bottle of Jordan Cabernet, one of our favorites, reasonably priced. My only mini-gripe is that they didn't have decaf cappuccino.

    The only thing I was a little disappointed in was I noted it was my fiances bday and wanted a cozy quiet table and they did not read that apparently as we were placed in the middle of restaurant. And nobody said Happy Birthday to him. It was a surprise dinner and I made the reservtions . Other than that everything was amazing. Just think they could improve on the fact if they ask for speciaL requests on the open table then they shoukd read them at the restaurant.

    Service and food were good but I think the prices are a bit too high. Steaks were good but not in the top 10 of steakhouses I have visited. I don't think I would make a special trip to return, but if in the area would give them a try again.

    Living in Boca Raton, there are PLENTY of steakhouses around and that I've been to. But this one has the BEST food hands-down! The bread, crab bisque, & wedge salad we started with was amazing. The filet, delmonico, and my strips were ALL mouth-watering and cooked to perfection! The sides of cauliflaur mashed, & potatoes cooked in duck fat were amazing!! Even their fresh-squeezed grapefruit for a Greyhound cocktail was out of this world!! My one complaint is the outside lighting. It was so dark we could barely read the menu, and see our food. Inside dining wasnt an option because it was freezing cold. I will absolutely be back if ever in the radius!

    The service was good, the food was excellent. The portion and quality of the asparagus was exceptional. My daughter loved the lobster escargot and the salmon was great. The complimentary birthday dessert was wonderful and unexpected. We missed out on the valet parking as we did not see it when we drove in front of the restaurant

    Went there with friend early on a Tuesday Evening. Not crowded. Nice Ambiance, waiter was prompt and efficient. I drank Ice Tea and my friend had Wine. I order escargot. It was just okay, nothing out of the ordinary. Friend ordered French Onion Soup, nothing exceptional here either. My Friend had a chef's salad, which was very good, and I had the 11oz filet. It was cooked properly, but had a broiler like taste to it. Our bill came to over $75. All sides were ala carte and we did not order any potatoes or vegetables with the meal. For the quality of the food we were disappointed. Probably would not return.

    We arrived early and were promptly seated. Initially seated next to large group that was quite noisy and asked to be moved and they quickly moved us to a table away from the noise. The wait staff was extremely patient and took the time to explain the entrees and answer all questions we had. the pricing was reasonable for an upscale steak restaurant. This is a place to Dine, not just eat,

    No disappointment here. Three filets and 1 strip steak all cooked to perfection and oh so tender. This is a quality product restaurant. Top of the line service too, attentive without being overbearing. And, of course, they continue to serve your food hot. We are always reluctant to recommend a restaurant to a friend or neighbor because so many are inconsistent. Not a problem with Mark's. Total quality is always there.

    Only our second visit impossible not to be satisfied at Mark's! I had the Crab Bisque App so tasty with chunks of crab! Not heavy at all and so full of flavor! Wife had the Shrimp & Petite Filet and I had the Bone in Filet! Both were excellent! There is a lower priced Chateau Ste Michelle Merlot that tastes like you should paying much more for this one! Debra is an excellent server and was so attentive despite the room filling up with patrons very rapidly! Your water glass never goes much below a couple inches empty from top before refill occurs! So much attention to detail this eatery knows how to do it right!

    Our second time at Mark's Prime. We were cordially greeted at the door and immediately seated. Our server, Adam, was very knowledgeable and outstanding in his service. My husband ordered the Filet and I had the Bleu cheese topped sirloin. Both were delicious and cooked to our specifications. The sides were very good (twice baked potato and green bean almondine). It was my husband's birthday and at the end of the meal we were pleasantly surprised with a complimentary dessert. All in all, a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back again and again.

    This was our first visit to Mark's Prime. We were seated at a table they refered to as "Grand Central Station Table" that sat in the middle of a smaller room. Considering we were there at 5:30 with a reservation and the place was mostly empty that we would have been seated in a less high traffic location. We ordered Shrimp cocktail, crab bisque, and ceasar salad to share, all excellent. Dinner my wife ordered a Filet special with 2 grilled shrimp and asparagus. The filet was ordered medium but came out closer to well and they had to remake, but they were apologetic and the new Filet was perfect and delicious. I did the Delmonico med rare that was perfect. Sides lobster mac and twice baked, both great.
