This was the second time we dinner at Mark's. We arrived about 10 minutes early and were seated immediately. The waiter Daniel greeted us right away. He provided excellent service and answered all our questions. The food we ordered was delicious. It was my wife's birthday and Daniel brought her a dessert with a candle on it that was very nice. The whole evening was wonderful. They also provided valet parking and when we were ready to leave the valet Parkers were Johnny on the spot and brought us our car immediately, I was impressed. We will definitely go back again for special occasions.

The drinks were good at the bar and the bar staff friendly, although the waitress did not offer back any change when paid with cash. We had a quiet table as requested. Our server Sam was not very friendly or engaging. He did not offer up much conversation. I had to tell him we had three birthdays and he went and checked our reservation, I do not think he believed me. I asked him if I could take home an extra bone (I bought a $50 steak) and he told me there were none and people come in and offer $50 for bones for their dogs. We spent $250 plus bar drinks for dinner, we could have had a better response. I found him unfriendly and he did not add to our enjoyment of dinner. It made it disappointing.

Reservations were for my wife's birthday 7:30
we did'nt get seated till 8:10 steak was delivered & was over cooked. The waiter never stopped back to check on how it was prepared. We waited to have plates cleared, had to to request another hostess to help clear the table & finally saw waiter & mention the steak was overdone. He did take the steak off the bill, but never was given a chance to ask for dessert.
Have been to restaurant several times in the past for special occasions, but will be reluctant to return anytime soon

As always, the service was impeccable! Martini's were perfect and wine recommendation was spot on. But, my petite filet arrived rare instead of medium well. A quick back to the grill took care of that however it arrived with a very charred exterior swimiming on a hot plate of butter. The chef should have started over. Seasoning could be amped up a bit. It was probably the toughest most sinewy filet I have ever had! How that can happen at Mark's is beyond me. How a filet can have any tough sinewy spots is another question. Perhaps they ordered a lower grade of meat to accommodate the New Year's Eve crowd. I'm not sure I will return... If I do, I won't have the filet. Too bad, Mark's.

Perhaps I was expecting too much. The first table they offered us was immediately inside the front door, when I had had the reservation for 3 weeks. Eric the waiter was very good. The bartender did not prepare my husband's drink as requested. When they called us to our table we had to carry our own drinks. It was good but I've eaten in better places. It was the overall service that disappointed me.

Best high-end steak house within driving distance from The Villages, FL. Always great service and delicious steaks and sides. Highly recommend if you are looking for a quality, white table-cloth evening. Can be a bit noisy, but the great food and service make your visit well worth it.

A nice steakhouse with excellent steaks at a premium price. As long as you are aware that this is not a 99 or Longhorn, or Outback, you will enjoy the meal. The service is very good and professional, though good service does not mean fast walking everything. Overall, the steakhouse is almost on a par with Ruth Christ's, but much smaller.
A nice evening out and very good food, but be prepared for the final price or don't bother going and then complaining.

Pricey, but the the filet mignon was fabulous. Paid a lot for lobster mac& cheese and could not eat. Had a strong over powering stinky cheese flavor. Not good. The best bread we have had anywhere. Wish server had offered another loaf. This is a very pricey restaurant. Leave for special occasions.

The food is excellent but be careful ordering sides. They can be pricey and are quite large so it might be too much food. I only gave the Ambiance a score of good as the restaurant was really cold (and I am almost never cold). We love Marks for special occasions such as a pre Christmas dinner. The steaks are the best!

I brought my husband for a good steak and to celebrate his birthday. We were delighted with the meal and service - both outstanding. We will return for special events. Our waiter, despite being very busy was extremely attentive and brought everything we requested promptly. Five stars for service! Excellent ambiance. Accommodates large groups but it did not detract from our quiet dinner together.

Rather old fashioned. Slightly over-priced. But the food and service are excellent. A great place for dinner if you want to be able to have a conversation with your tablemates where you do not have to out-shout all the background noise. We are looking forward to coming back in the near future.

The food was excellent and service superb. With the side dishes being served family style there was more than enough for everyone with boxes to take home. The Delmonico steak was huge - surely large enough to have split for two people, which is what we will do when we come back. If you like calamari, theirs is the best! This is definitely a "Yes" on a return date.

Went on a Saturday night so was very busy but we were seated at our table at the time of our reservation. The food was excellent, my steak exquisite. Our server was not particularly friendly and was quite abrupt at times, interrupting our conversations. He gave us the impression that we needed to work around his routine and at his convenience. I thought perhaps he was just trying to create an air of professionalism and class, but the rudeness dispelled that notion. Our friends had been there for dinner prior and had a lovely experience and their service was excellent, so I would suspect this was just this one server who was having a bad day or just needs some customer service training.

We had brought friends to Mark's for their first time. The food, service and atmosphere were excellent. All of us had something different and all of us thought our meals were delicious. From steak to seafood, if you are looking for an upscale dinning experience Marks is the place.

We arrived right on time and were seated in 4 minutes, The waiter arrived within 2 minutes and was very nice and helpful with suggestions and with the wine list. We ordered the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer, and it was absolutely wonderful. My wife ordered the sea bass and I ordered the new York steak garnished with deep fried oysters. Both were the best ever. Our overall experience was great and we will definitely go back again
