Best place to eat in Ocala!
When there is a need to celebrate a special occasion Mark's Prime is the place to be!
The food is exceptional the wait staff is well trained and the experience is memorable.
I took my Father there to celebrate Father's Day since I had to work on the actual Father's Day. The food was great but with the only exception being my salad. I had the Caesars Salad with the anchovies, and I know anchovies are salty, but the combination of them with their dressing was salt overload! Also the service was a little lacking, especially for this price point. My drink went empty every time and went a while between fill ups. Not sure if our server was doing double duty in the bar area, but we would go a while without seeing them. While we were ordering our desserts, we forgot to order coffee to go with our desserts (Our fault there) and after we received our desserts and got a couple of bites in, we realized no coffee. Also no Tea and no Water. And no waiter. When we eventually did see them it was too late, and time for the check. Again, for this price point you simply expect a better attention to detail. Now the positives: Our appetizers were AWESOME! Dad had the shrimp cocktail with cocktail sauce I had the coconut shrimp with a very yummy orange and ginger sauce. The shrimp for each appetizer were MASSIVE! We both had the Bone In Ribeye which were cooked to perfection! And our desserts were an excellent end to our meal! I had the Chocolate dessert which was a mousse encapsulated with a dark chocolate shell. It was great! Dad had the Banana Bread Pudding and loved it! All in all, I would definitely return again.
We thought the service was excellent and the atmosphere as well. However, our steaks were not what we were expecting . Overall, we though it was an overpriced meal.
Enjoyed the food and the service. Our waiter, Nick, was exceptional ! Will go again!
Nice place, went there for a business dinner. We sat outside and enjoyed ourselves. A bit overpriced for the quality of food but would eat there again.
Pleasant surprise! Great service, Grilled bone in Pork Chop was excellent as well as the SeaBass! We’ll be back!
We come here every year for our anniversary. I highly recommend it. Great steaks!
The food was delicious and worth the $$! The side servings were large enough for 2 people. The service was phenomenal!
I went out with seven people for a friends birthday here at Mark‘s prime. The food was absolutely fabulous everything was cooked to perfection and the desserts were decadent. Our waitress was very accommodating to all of our needs and with her pleasant attitude made our evening that much more enjoyable. Her Professionalism and knowledge of the menu was impeccable. I would recommend marks prime for any occasion and will continue to enjoy this restaurant for years to come. I give much respect and thanks to all of the staff and my compliments to the chef. ” The crème brûlée was to die for”
My Wife and I were at the ambiance. Nick was our waiter he was superb. He knew the menu and related the specials to us. the only problem that we both had was our order. i do not make a point of complaining in the restaurant,I don't like demeaning in public. I felt the wine was way overpriced!! The meal was superbly presented but my lobster tail was overcooked as well as my wife's and so were the shrimp. My wife and, I STILL WILL COME BACK IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
I hope that this help's to remedy the problem in the kitchen.
Still all in all a great dinner experience but I still think a little overpriced.
Service was not as good as on previous visits. Server was not as attentive to refilling our wine glasses, etc.
Great food excellent waitress Megan and wonderful Vallet Parking Boys they were so accommodating
Crying kids during our anniversary dinner and at those prices unacceptable
Easy parking across the street.
Dinner was excellent...filet mignon, blue cheese salad, 3 trio dessert.
Definitely recommend and will return.
Excellent service and steaks were outstanding. The classic martini with blue cheese olives was also great. We were even given a complimentary dessert since we were celebrating the purchase of a new home.
It was just an ok restaurant- chef prepared all meals with too much butter !
For the price of the food I expected nice flavor and good quality. I have had better tasting steaks at outback.
Always a pleasure! Always great service and delicious food!!
Daniel was very attentive and his recommendations were on point. The crab claw appetizer was fantastic. Our steaks and spinach side dish were also delicious. We really enjoyed the creme brûlée dessert. All in all it was a great evening at Mark’s.
We had a wonderful meal with great service.
The dessert was especially delightful.
First time at Marks steaks were perfect as was everything else.
The food and service was was great, yes food was pricey however you’re paying for quality! Will come here again.
Great food....Perfect Service.....Wonderful atmosphere....
I at there with my husband my mom and stepdad on Saturday evening to celebrate Mother's Day early since typically it is so busy on Mother's Day it is hard to get reservations. My mom and stepdad are elderly and it is uncomfortable for them to sit in regular dining chairs for very long so I requested a booth and when we arrived we were told the booths on the dining side only sat couples so we would need to sit in the bar. The noise level was high and it was crowded, which is what you would expect on a Saturday night so it was not the intimate celebration I was expecting, however, that being said, the food and service were outstanding. A little pricey but ok for special occasions. Yes I would visit again, no question.
Have dined here every time visiting my parents for special dinner out and has ways been a lovely evening
You get what you pay for does not apply here. You are just helping pay the rent for being on the square. The food is not bad, but it had no flavor and is nothing at all special. The steak was just warmed up meat. There were four at our table and all were disappointed and will never return.
Dinner is always great. The sign at the door has always said proper attire. Gentleman at next table was in shorts. Young lady seated before us was in short shorts. The owner either has a dress code that should be followed or take the sign down.
Our dinner at Mark's was perfection for celebration of our 35th Anniversary. Our steak and fish were excellent. Pre-dinner drinks were well crafted. Side dishes and salad were outstanding. I can't say enough about the excellence of our server! Thank you, Mark's Prime Steak House for an excellent evening.
Mark's is always good the steak was done just right and was delicious.
The drinks were great and service as always was professional. It was my wife's birthday
and they are very suttle no group of waiters singing Happy Birthday, which can be embarrassing, just a free dessert. Our server was very attentive and helpful.
We have never had a bad experience at Mark’s Prime. The food is delicious and the service has always been great. We asked if we could sit at Crizz’s table, and even though he had some large parties for graduation celebrations, we were accommodated. It made for an outstanding evening with our son and his fiancée
We were a party of four and our dining experience was fabulous, as always! Our server, Ashley, was very attentive and personable. Each of our entrées were outstanding, as well as all of the sides and desserts. We have never had one complaint in the numerous times we’ve dined at Mark’s Prime Steakhouse.
Great dinner. Expensive and worth it.
We love Mark's. Great ambiance, outstanding food and a great wine list. Our server, Enos, was top notch. This is the second year in a row that we celebrated our anniversary at Mark's.
Every course was outstanding. Equivalent to Smith & Wollensky in the North East. Lighting could have been brighter but the menus came with flash lights. Restaurant is much higher caliber than its location/surroundings would suggest.
Everything about our experience at Mark’s was amazing! It’s our new “favorite “ restaurant. We’ll definitely be going back!
Food was good but not amazing. Service was good but not above average. Very friendly staff. We are outside and there were heaters.
You must try the lobster escargot!!! Amazing! I also had the filet with scallops and it was delicious too! You will not regret this decision.
Took my son and his girlfriend and another couple who have all been very generous to me and helpful since my husband passed away. I wanted to treat them to a special dinner and the waiter and another waiter were very accomodating to help me pay the bill without my guests noticing.
Dinner did not disappoint. I was particularly impressed that the waiter did not try to pad the bill and was very helpful in advising us on how many sides to order and the size of the salads.
Overall it was a lovely, albeit expensive evening.
My steak was over cooked which is unusual for this restaurant. The manager and waiter both wanted to cook me another steak. I did not want to waste it so I ate it. They took my steak off the bill without me asking to do it. Wonderful! I will be back. It is very pricey with everything a la carte. Veggies are $7.95 for two. Potatoes same price and salad extra price. Appetizers extra cost. Expect a big bill at the end of the night.
Steak was worth it despite the fact it was not cooked to perfection.
