- SimBrimDined on 10/15/2014Went for wife's birthday, with four adult children and their spouses and 2/5 of the grandchildren. Everyone loved what they ordered, service was attentive and ambiance was very nice. Wine list is extensive and expensive, but the wine we ordered was terrifIc. It is great place to go for a special occasion or a romantic, special dinner with your wife or significant other. My wife recommended it since she was there a couple of times for lunch. Glad we went.Special Features:
- Nice place...UppereastfoodieDined on 10/14/2014Even though the host (I am not a regular there) sat me in possibly the worst spot in the restaurant and because of this I may never go back, I have to say the place is nice. For a hotel restaurant which forces them in with union waiters who at best are awful, the service was ok. The food also was better than ok for a hotel restaurant. Décor , outstanding. They could do better with the métier de …not rude, but not really great. They should send them to Cipriani for a tutorial in taking care of clients. A great host usually knows who is coming and where to seat them.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- UnevenOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/14/2014Wine list was unwieldy and veal dish was among the worst. Fish was excellentSpecial Features:
- less than 1 star for serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 10/14/2014I have been to many very nice restaurants, however this was not one of them. The initial seating was between to seat cushions & we asked to be moved. We were and then we sat. And sat. And stared at walls and watched 5 minutes go by before anyone noticed and even gave us a menu. Mind you, other tables were greeted. The tuna tartar appetizer was missing ingredients based on their website picture vs. actual item and the taste. Before the second course we requested the wine list. When we tasted the wine, we asked to see the list again as neither chardonnay was buttery. The main course arrived and the waiter said he would be right back. 15 minutes later he showed up confused. White truffle pasta = macaroni and cheese. Thumbs down.
- Expected more for DinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/13/2014Well, I expected more from The Mark... Waited for more than 15 minutes after seated to a waiter come to offer water.... Not compatible with the restaurant... My main course was a risotto with chicken and truffles. The chicken was burned giving a taste at the whole meal... The wine was a dream... The restaurant was full of elegant people... And the hotel is very beautiful The maitre was very polite and kind... But sincerely , I was disapoitedSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- disappointedlolabonnieDined on 10/12/2014Have eaten at the others and find this one the worst. Food overcooked and not that great and noise over the top. Would not returnSpecial Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 10/11/2014The event, my wife's 65th birthday party was a success. Everything, the food, the service, the flowers, couldn't have been better. Thank you Josh for your help in putting everything together and thank you Mr. Carro for everything.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not up to Jean-George's Mark!CygnetVIPDined on 10/11/2014This Mark offers a pleasant hotel restaurant in a bright, tasteful room. We thought it a convenient choice for the Whitney Museum. The food was handsomely presented by attentive, trained staff. who accommodated a surprise guest. Brunch, however, isn't imaginative in the least.
- Overpriced and LoudenjoyaDined on 10/10/2014While the Mark is an "upscale restaurant", the music was sufficiently loud and with a strong beat that conversation at the table was extremely difficult. The food was excellent, but we would have appreciated it if the waiter had explained that it was necessary to order side dishes to have a complete meal. Overall, there are lot's of restaurants in NYC with lower noise levels, same quality of food, and more friendly service than the Mark.Special Features:
- Less than idealmojoDined on 10/8/2014Went for a special occasion- waited 30 mins for server to come to table,served our wine to the next table, forgot candle in cake which was on reservation,waiter knocked wine over into our food- not special at all. Waiter nice but no training . Daniel Boulud's restaurants are so much better for the same money! Food was good but not worth the price for mediocre service.
- The MarkCeciDined on 10/5/2014Expensive, cheeseburger oily, unfortanelly it was a bad experience! I expected more!Special Features:
- Fletch44Dined on 10/4/2014Seemed even better than on previous visits. Food, particularly appetizers, were full of flavors. Service was attentive throughout.Special Features:
- Could have been betterLivetoeatDined on 10/3/2014Everything about the restaurant heightens the expectation of a truly superb dining experience. Alas: service, no matter how solicitous and courteous, was slow - 45 mins before any food was served. Of the three dishes ordered, the appetizer -a grilled octopus - was a real disappointment. On the other hand, the evening was largely redeemed by the two main courses - a filet mignon and the cod served on a bed of spinach - both of which were excellent although the portions surprisingly small. Wine served by the glass was only fair. There would seem to be little excuse for that as there are some very good tasting wines that do not cost the price of an entire dinner. Lastly, and most surprisingly:no French Bread at a French restaurant!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- FAbulousednascarpeDined on 10/2/2014I don't wait for a special occasion to go to The Mark. I can walk 8 blocks easily & find myself in the best environment for a foodie! The service from the minute you walk in is Jean Georges professional!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- disappointingmaryVIPDined on 10/2/2014Sorry to say we were not impressed. Just dined at Inn at Pound Ridge and had a lovely meal. This was not the same experience. Salads were so packed in the bowl we were afraid to dig in too heartily for fear of tossing lettuce all over the table - lots of lettuce very little avocado in mine - my partners : lots of frisee not many lardons. Lobster and three cheese pizza nothing special - again lots of dough not much lobster. Veal milanese was odd in that the breading was puffed up around the veal. Did enjoy the escarole and pecans that came with it. We were seated at the end of a banquette that felt like a see saw each time someone else was seated the entire thing wobbled around. Maybe it should be attached to the wall?
- Perfect as always!FoodieVIPDined on 9/30/2014Once white truffle season started could't stay away from one of my favorite spots in the city. The experience here is always guaranteed to be impecable. From the host to the service to the ambiance but most importantly the food! Amazing with new dishes every season and consistantly perfect! The white truffle pasta is a must have and also the Dover Sole that is one of the best I've had in a long time... They also have a new Cod dish that is to die for and now that the season is getting cooler the lamb chops are a must try. Highly reccomend this place again and again. Always perfection!Special Features:
- Tres manifiqueOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 9/28/2014Convenient for hotel guests and a regular spot for the upper east side crowd, Jean-George's is a find and the kind of upscale dining you seek out repeatedly because it is so consistently excellent. We dined on a Sunday night at a great table in the central dining room, surrounded by couples and families. Our salad and salmon dinner was divine, the fish roasted to perfection and simply served with sautéed spinach and creamy mashed . My mom had caramel ice cream fir dessert and we sipped a good french white. The breakfast is also superior to any hotel I've experienced -soy lattes made to order and stevia included in the sweeteners was satisfying. We ordered yogurt with fruit and poached eggs and everything was seasonal and ripe.Special Features:
- LaurenVIPDined on 9/28/2014We love everything about this restaurant. We have never had a bad meal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Go to Jean Gorges insteadOpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 9/27/2014I arrived at 7:35 for a 7:45 reservation. I was not seated till 8:30. I was seated in the bar and a close by guest was speaking so loud to his table it was hard to ignore his constant use if profanity. My server was nice and helped navigate the meal as I have to eat gluten free. The good was good, but the entire experience was one of the worst I've had in NYC.
- A safe betOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 9/25/2014If you are in this area, it is a safe choice. Unfortunately, nothing was wonderful. Lots of staff, but the kitchen was slow and got the order wrong. Chairs were not comfortable.
- One of my favoritesTheatreGoerDined on 9/23/2014there is nothing better than a restaurant that is always consistent - from the food to the staff, to the experience. It's always great.Special Features:
- RemiVIPDined on 9/22/2014While the restaurant ambience is quite good, the dining room was one quarter full, and we were put at a small table for two, even though there were plenty of larger tables which would have been more comfortable. This restaurant is very expensive. I had an appetizer size portion of pasta for $22, and it was lukewarm and mostly pasta, not other added ingredients. Wine prices are ridiculous, and they get six glasses to the bottle! Not a wonderful experience by any means.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- LoveNYCdiningVIPDined on 9/21/2014Took my mother who was celebrating her 90th Birthday. She love the brioche French toast, soft scrambled eggs, bacon extra crispy and the cucumber martini. Perfection per my mother.
- Good food,bad service, very loudBkcouple14Dined on 9/20/2014Great food but took forever to get our main meal. We got there at 8:45 and didn't leave until well past 11. I want to say we waited 30 minutes at least between apps and main course. The sticky sushi was great, shrimp salad, desserts, drinks. Not very romantic as the place is so loud. They sat us right next to the bar initially with waiters butts in our faces and we asked to move which they did and our waiter was nice but the wait for food was just bad. We were starving!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- SuperbOpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 9/20/2014My friends and I meet in the lovely bar prior to our dinner reservation. A beautiful restaurant and wonderful menu. We had a fantastic dinner. It was a fabulous choice to celebrate my 40th!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Will not return to The MarkNolzeeVIPDined on 9/20/2014Despite having made reservations a month ago, we were seated in the very noisy bar. A small, cramped table began the experience. We arrived at 8:15 and did not receive our entrees until nearly 10:30. Food was just ok...a squash side dish was cold and uninspired. Waiter blamed the kitchen, and manager apologized with a glass of wine, but still a difficult experience.
- Great good, but expensiveApsaraDudeVIPDined on 9/20/2014The food was delicious although the main courses were somewhat uninspiring. The wine was also outrageously overpriced with markups around 4-5 x retail and almost nothing under $100/bottle. Prix fixe menu would also be a good addition, as well as more attentive service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Upper east hot spotSarabVIPDined on 9/17/2014The bar was full at 7!! Nice maître d set up a perfect table for 6 in the glass roof room. Lovely bright high ceilings, comfortable banquette for 3 on one side, chairs on the other. Very tasty cocktail, yummy ginger margarita...food was all very fresh and well prepared. My gazpacho tasted like it was just picked from the garden. Clean bright flavors, not oily. Fresh hamachi sushi perfect. All the mains perfectly prepared with care and clear tastes. Nothing fussy and weird. That's a relief. Service was very good although wait time between courses was a bit extended. For a special evening I would recommend. Staff helpful with 2 guests with food allergies. definitely pricey...Special Features:
- Enjoyed itNYNYVIPDined on 9/12/2014Nice....excellent service...food was good....would returnSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- not worth the moneyeaterVIPDined on 9/12/2014The food was okay but no better than more moderately priced restaurants. We were first seated in a banquette with a ridge in the middle of the seat against the wall, which is very uncomfortable to sit on. No one should be seated at this table. We moved ourselves one table over. The service was terrible. We waited a while for our main courses. When we finally saw them arriving, my $72 main course was delivered to the table next to us. I would not go back.
- Lunch betterLuvredwineDined on 9/10/2014First time I had dinner and have had lunch many times with clients. I like the menu a lot but service not as good at night, even though wasn't crowded when we got there. We ordered a bottle of wine and took a long time to get it -15 minutes. Otherwise food was good and support wait staff very good.Special Features:
- Absolute perfectionAlexaVIPDined on 9/8/2014The bar scene is sexy, trendy and perfect. One of the best restaurants on the upper east side. The hotel is also exquisite and the decor is top-notch. Overall an exceptional experience! Would definitely go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DisappointedDMBCABDined on 9/4/2014Sat outside based on other recommendation. To my surprise in this small space they allowed smoking! A good bottle of white wine arrived warm and was taken away for chilling only to return upon my request each time our glasses were empty. Sever was ernest but disappeared for long periods. Food was good (not great) and over priced. Overall a very disappointing experience after high expectations based on experiences at other JG establishments. When I mentioned this to the maître d, she seemed uninterested. We won't return.
- Great dining experienceComebackVIPDined on 9/2/2014This was my second time at The Mark with business associates, only this time we brought our spouses. We all had a great time. Excellent food and wine list, impecable service, and great ambience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- The MarkNy262Dined on 8/29/2014A Gem in NYC! Weather permitting, The Patio is a perfect spot to enjoy a glass wine or dinner. Food, service and ambiance deserves a 5 star rating from this diner. Plan to return soon!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2004Dined on 8/26/2014The restaurant is lovely. The food was very good and very beautiful the way was presented. The lady who took care of me was WONDERFUL. The only think is the table where I was assigned was very uncomfortable and the chair too.Special Features:
- Another "Home Run" At MarkChristine39Dined on 8/21/2014My friends & I enjoyed another wonderful evening at "The Mark" - The service was EXCELLENT and the food was OUTSTANDING !! One of the restaurant's specialities is "Salmon Pizza" which is a BIG HIT !! We are already looking to spending another FINE DINING evening at your fabulous restaurant !!!!!!Special Features:
- Truly Outstanding!GlennWDined on 8/19/2014Our evening at the Mark was one to remember! Beautiful people and beautifully presented cuisine in a richly elegant atmosphere was wonderful all around. Grilled Octopus and Crispy Sushi appetizers were as good as they looked, and the Veal Milanese was great as well. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Our waiter recommended an excellent wine which I appreciated. Pretty expensive but worth it. I highly recommend and look forward to returning one day!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A favorite go-to place for brunchi82muchDined on 8/17/2014As a creature of habit, The Mark Restaurant is a favorite go-to place for a special brunch. Always consistent, and a pleasant experience. We always start with the cold lobster tails and sushi. The sushi includes a nice mix of flavors and color, all resting on delicately toasted bread-- a nice alternative to the standard rice base. A personal favorite entrée is the Croque-Monsieur (listed as 'Croque M' on the menu). In my opinion, it's one of the best items on the menu. The perfectly toasted bread base makes a delicious vessel to hold the béchamel, add to that, the ham, Gruyère, Herbes de Provance, and topped with a quail egg-- all balance perfectly, and stand out individually. Quite a challenge for such a rich sauce. Brilliant!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
