Noise level really took away from a nice meal. People in the side room were literally screaming, shouting f-bombs. Just too bad that the environment was such a negative. Food and service were terrific.

This was our second time dining at Marker 32. The first time was a midweek night this last time was on a Friday evening. The noise level was very high and to the point where conversation was very difficult. The service was spot on and the food was excellent. Would I rebook? Yes, we will try again but on a week night and hope that at least one could converse in a normal voice and not have to shout. BTW there are things that restaurants can do to abate the sound and make the dining experience more pleasant.

We went to Marker 32 for our anniversary and they made it so special with a champagne toast and "Happy Anniversary" painted in chocolate on our dessert plate! The food is incredible and we will make it a point to visit more frequently! It is so much better than the chain restaurants. Excellent food and drinks! I would highly recommend them!!!

Octopus starter was very good. Fried oysters and shoestring fries were both good, but not outstanding. Crab cake had a starch content content that was higher than desirable. Drinks were excellent, but it took one-half hour and three requests before they arrived.

I've been to Marker 32 three times now, never disappointed. This was the first time with a date. She totally was impressed as she works as a Las Vegas restaurant manager. Knows quality when she sees and experiences it. She spent some time chatting with "Dave" the manager who aggressively worked the house ensuring customers needs were being met or exceeded. Dave has lived and worked in Las Vegas, they were having an a good time comparing notes. As an observer, it seemed like "old home week".
I had a grilled lamb chop, a new experience, it was great! My date had the grilled pork chop, her comments indicated complete satisfaction. I had the key lime dessert, my date also had a dessert but I don't remember what she had. We were both satisfied with our dessert choices.
I regret I did not get our server's name, she executed her duties flawlessly.

We had the snapper special and the salmon entree. Both were prepared as requested and were delicious. However, a major faux pas in service. The salad took a bit longer than one would expect to arrive at our table. That was okay. We were catching up with friends who we hadn’t seen in some time. We were taken aback when our entrees arrived three to four minutes after the salads were served. Salads (not nearly finished) had to be pushed aside to make room for our entrees. Our server gave no indication that anything was amiss. No “I’m sorry”, didn’t mean to rush you.” Or, “would you like us to send your entrees back and keep them warm while you finish your salads?” This is a fairly pricey restaurant. Surely, the servers should have been trained regarding the pacing of courses. It made for quite an awkward transition into our meal. Also, it would be nice to dine here with a softened noise level. We have dined here quite a number of times over the years. It is extremely hard to converse over the loud roar coming from all of the surrounding tables.

Once again, Marker delivers! This was a date night dinner. I had the ribeye which was incredible. Served with an alligator sausage rice that was incredible. The service was TOP notch. We had Todd, who was energetic, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and just plain awesome. He truly elevated an already fine experience to the next level. The only gripes I have are that I reserved the table two days in advance, requesting a water view. We arrive and the young dippy hostess tries to stick me and my date by the front door, next to some guy with a baseball hat on backwards, etc. I was like, uh, no. They relocated us to a corner table on the water (why was that so hard to do in the first place?) and all was well until a table of three obviously drunk middle aged men came in, were loud, and started F bombing right next to us. Hardly a romantic experience at that point. Nice. Apart from those issues, the experience was awesome. The food is creative and quite expertly prepared. Again, top notch service, especially for Jacksonville. Would highly recommend.

This was our first visit to Marker 32. We were a party of 4 with a reservation and they sat us at a very small table, it was uncomfortable. I didn't actually notice the size of our table compared to the other 4 place settings until after we were seated for a few minutes. There were plenty of other tables so I am not sure why they put us at that table.

Most of the food was good, the salads were very good. I am a vegetarian and there were basically only 2 options for me on the menu. I ordered the Vegan Pad Thai and while it was a lovely display it was pretty disappointing on flavor would not recommend. 2 of our party ordered the Shrimp Fettucini and again they said it was good but it was made with a tomato sauce which was kind of weird.

This was a Tuesday evening around 6:00 and the bar was busy and there was a table not too far that had a group of men that were very loud and boisterous, pretty annoying which I understand the restaurant really has not control over.

All in all it really wasn't that great and probably will not be back.

I ordered a salad and a dozen oysters on the half shell. The salad was good. The oysters were all small and not a very good value. The one thing that irritated me the most was the size of one oyster. The shell was no bigger than a quarter. The oyster was even smaller. That oyster should have been a snack for the person doing the shucking. I would expect a restaurant of that caliber could afford to plate a dozen oysters. I would be ashamed to send out a plate like that.
