Valet great! Seated right away with reservations! Food was awesome. Service very good but never came to refill water glasses until we asked. One guest asked for a lemon for her water which never came. Otherwise, waiter very helpful with ordering and was spot on with the rest of the service.
Excellent service. Delicious food. Great venue for special occasions.
We requested our waiter-Eric- who knows how to serve. He is one of the best and always ask for him! The food is incredible! We always go home with a doggy bag full of left overs and they are the best the second time around. Highly recommend as always!
Outstanding service and meal. We just moved to Ocala so this was our first visit....already planning to make another reservation soon. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
It was great
Nice, but not exceptional. High end steaks, similar to Ruth Chris. People in jeans and children tagging along, should be accomadated, but let the rest of us know that dress code is relaxed.
Great ambience and great food. This is by far my favorite restaurant to join friends and family.
Cindy, the owner, and the staff at Mark's are an amazing crew. Outstanding job on service and food!
Excellent service, food ambiance enjoyed a great deal
The steaks were excellent. The wait staff provided excellent service. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Ocala.
For the price, it was just ok. Steaks weren’t as good as we expected. We felt like the waiter could of guided us better on sides. Since they are family style, we had too much left over. Felt like a waste of food. In from out of town to take my mom out for her birthday. This place is clearly better than anything at The Villages.
I was overall impressed with the restaurant. I purchased a Delmonico steak and was not impressed. The steak was cooked perfectly but the meat quality was poor. I had several bites that I could not even chew. The amount of grissle in the mean was unbelievable and I just expected better for a $41 steak.
Well, this has always been our go to place for special events for my parents when we visit. We went Saturday night to celebrate my dad's 80th birthday and unfortunately, we had some issues. 3 of the 6 steaks ordered weren't cooked correctly, one was edible, one was sent back and one was completely rare (ordered medium). Restaurant made amends but for such a "Steak" house, we were pretty disappointed. Service was great though and still a special evening.
Steak was over cooked but they recooked it for us.
Always a great place for a special occasion. Great steaks, cooked EXACTLY like you want and great side dishes. We love Mark’s.
My husband and l went for his birthday the food was excellent our waiter was very conciencious and friendly. We were very happy with our evening and will be going back when we come back to Florida.
Nice experience, bar area very-cold.
Always great food and service. A bit pricey which is why we usually only dine there for special occasions. Highly recommend it.
Great food, great service. We had a reservation during a horse parade and we did not know it. When we arrived for our reservation, there was no place to park as the valet parking was full of other cars. Would of been nice to know about the parade before showing up or at least they should have taken better steps to protect the parking area. Had to walk 2 blocks to get to restaurant and my wife was in spiked heels.
Needs to order meat RARE because if you order Medium rare as I like the meat will come medium. Plate is too hot and I think meat keeps cooking.
Also I don't like the fact that the atendant keeps pooring wine on the glasses while there is still enough on the glasses to drink. That's a terrible way to serve wine.
Food its ok; expensive.
Server seemed very inexperienced for starters and poured a $105/bottle of wine like it was a beer full of bubbles.
The bone in ribeye was cut thin, tuff and over cooked!
Excellent food and great service!
Great experience. Seated right away. Not overbooked or crowded. Waiter was prompt and pleasant. Food was very good and came out fresh and hot all the way down to the bread. Great experience. Nice and quiet evening even though we sat outside.
Had a special Valentines Day Dinner and enjoyed the atmosphere and service.
Mario our waiter was superb! The Delmonico Steak was delicious as was the NY Strip.
Great food and service. Steaks are second no none. Great atmosphere!!!!! Loved every minute of it.
It was my sister’s birthday and we were in the mood for a delicious filet mignon with mushrooms and twice baked potato. We started with lobster escargot as an appetizer and it was scrumptious. We shared dinner and it was served to us each on our own plate and we didn’t even have to request that. It is truly an upscale restaurant and we enjoy that the tables are spaced far enough apart that you can have a conversation without sharing it with surrounding patrons. Lovely dinner! Thank you Marks Prine. PS: My sister received a chocolate mousse dessert for her birthday. I would order this off the menu as it was yummy!!!
Delicious food. We eat here often and love it! Highly recommend!
Mark's has been wonderful everytime we've been. Ocala is lucky to have such a great place to dine, the food and service never disappoints.
This restaurant was amazing, staff was very knowledgeable, excellent food! Perfect for a birthday dinner with my husband!
I had reservations for the main dining room. Because I wore a nice sweater without a collar, we had to sit in the bar. Amazing that some people had on shorts no less for dinner.
Dinner is always wonderful at Mark's Steakhouse.....but, I had made a reservation two weeks prior to our visit for 7:00PM. We arrived at 6:30, let the hostess know we were there, and went into the bar for cocktails. The bar was very busy. At 7:00PM we gave up our seats at the bar to go to the hostess station to be seated only to be told that it would be another ten minutes because the people sitting at our table had already paid but were just lingering. At 7:30PM I went back to the hostess station and was informed it was going to be a few more minutes because the party was still there. I asked why I had made a reservation and asked to speak to the manager. Immediately they took us to a table. Once we were seated the service was outstanding and dinner was wonderful. We could not understand why they did not seat us at 7:00 since there were a couple of empty tables in the dining room and the back room (where we were seated) was pretty much empty other than three tables. Maybe that is where they seat the people who speak up.
The service and food were outstanding. It was a quiet and comfortable with an upscale atmosphere.
Mark’s food quality is always excellent and very consistent. Little loud this time but usually ambient noise is at medium level. Always recommend Mark’s to anyone.
Had eaten at Mark's in Gainesville some years ago, and decided to splurge with my daughter & son-in-law on Thurs. evening in Ocala. Marvelous!!! The food was second to none; the service was outstanding; the ambience was great; and while the cost was somewhat high, it was not only expected, it was worth every penny. Will be back!!
Way over priced for what you get. The steaks were over cooked, the sides were not prepared appropriately. The creamed spinach was over cooked and had tiny lumps throughout, the asparagus was burned on the outside and mushy on the inside. The bone in fillet was full of grissel. The whole meal was a huge disappointment. The shinning star was Ashley, our server. I will not ever recommend this restaurant.
We went to Marks for my wife’s and my mother’s birthday. The whole experience was great. From the ambiance to the service and the steaks were delicious. We ordered too much food but that was great. We were able to bring the leftovers home and the food was just as amazing the next day.
Good News! Service was Excellent!!
Our guests who ordered the Grilled Seafood Mix were impressed.
The sides were most delicious and presented quite well for family style.
Then...my filet mignon came out looking like a hockey puck with little flavor. It was cooked medium but the charring was way too much.
If it had not been for the bernaisse sauce it would have been bland.
Next...Very pricey; I think overpriced.
Also...extremely chilly; choose wisely where you sit if the weather is in the low 40's. Every time the door opened we were cold. Dining in a cold environment takes away from the enjoyment. I end up thinking about how cold I am instead of how good the food might be.
We will try again; just the two of us in one of the charming booths for two along the wall. Out of the way and should have a better climate.
Our friends will definitely return (so they said), so that spells success for us and Mark's Prime.
Food and Service, outstanding, but pricey.
Ryan could not have been nicer or more attentive.
Very loud group, seated one table away from us, we and others around them
found them very annoying. Kind of ruined the experience.
Wish someone would have asked them to use their "inside" voices or
Mark's never fails with the food and presentation.
