Contemporary American
Owner & Executive Chef Mark Freedman, formally of his critically acclaimed “Mark’s on Westover”, returned to the Triad's fine dining scene with "Mark's Restautant" in June of 2011, and has since forged Greensboro's best kept culinary secret. His lavish seasonal menu-featuring a diverse spread of unique small plates, distinctly crafted Entrees, and a wonderful selection of housemade desserts-reflects his French classical training; but, where Chef Mark distinguishes himself is through his heavy use of locally sourced & produced ingredients, and 30+ years of eclectic culinary experience.

Mark's has an exceptional lunch menu. Mark the Owner/Executive Chef creates the same high level of flavors & creativity in his lunch menu as he does in his dinner menu. Perfect place for business lunches & catching up with friends lunches.

Always a lovely way to spend lunchtime with my daughter...a lovely vinho verde to enjoy our meal of the cheese plate, sliders and quiche...if we lived in Omaha we would come more often...service from Maren was impeccable and professional...thank you very much!

The menu is extensive for lunch. Quality and presentation of food was excellent. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Coffee refills were offered several times which was nice and more than we experience at other places. We will add Mark’s to our regular rotation for lunch out.

My husband and I were out for our anniversary. Our dinner was delicious, however I had my heart set on the Chilean Sea Bass but they ran out after I ordered it. The chef was gracious enough to offer dessert at no charge. Will h that said, the dark chocolate bread pudding was not desirable.

Our meals were delicious and varied...all kind of "regular food" but prepared by a first class chef. I had trout that was served with a touch of green tomato salsa on a bed of lemon risotto and accompanied by fresh veggies (brocollini, brussels sprout, sugar snap pea, asparagus). The serving size was more generous than other upscale restaurants that serve pretty food, and I cleaned my plate. White tablecloths, candles, friendly service made for an elegant but relaxed dinner. We felt the prices were lower than we had expected for the high quality of the dinner.

Consistently good food and drink in a nice atmosphere. Remember to ask for the chocolate souffle when ordering entrees as these take about forty minutes to make - and they are made fresh. I love having the souffle with a small glass of Port and the end of my meal.

We love Mark's, and have never had a bad experience, or bad meal, or bad drink, here.
We haven't even had a "Gee, that was pretty good, but there was one little slip up."
The menu changes, and always has a great variety of choices, including small plates that could be a meal if you want something lighter or smaller. Mark puts as much attention and care into the small plates as he does the entrees and specials. The specials are wonderful ... have you ever had wild boar? I had not, and knew I had to try it as soon as I heard it. It did not disappoint!
Go visit Mark's, but don't tell TOO many of your friends .. I don't want it to be impossible to get into! :-)

Tender, tasty beef filet with foil gras, the best. Outstanding chocolate soufflé, difficult to find entree and dessert on restaurant menus, in a class of its own.

We enjoyed this chef owned restaurant. We dined on duck breast from the menu, and venison as the special. Both were delicious.

We always go here for special occasions and when we are just wanting a super nice meal with excellent service. The bartender Conner and Chef Mark always remembers us even when it has been 6 months since we have been there. I have a gluten intolerance and always get the duck off of the GF menu as it is my favorite and is always cooked to perfection. My husband had one of the specials which was venison and he said is was really good. This was my birthday dinner so I was treated to desert and had the chocolate souffle (yummy).

Mark's is a great, "off the beaten" path of Greensboro Restaurants that presents a great ambiance and entree. Mark, the owner, walks the floor to meet his customers and check on the food. Can't beat that. I have been going to Mark's since it opened and it never disappoints.

It was finally cool enough to eat outdoors. But, the restaurant could have let citronella candles out to ward off the mosquitoes.

Our visit to Mark's was very enjoyable. Extensive list of reasonably-priced wines. My wife had to leave some of the pasta in the grilled shrimp and lobster ravioli - just more than she could eat. My wild boar chop was a new experience, and the tomato-based sauce was perfect for what otherwise would have been a bit dry. Our server was very attentive while also being unobtrusive - excellent! The pacing of the meal was perfect. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

Come here 3 - 4 times a year, always great food. Service a bit slow this time, server forgot to place order for our chocolate soufflé when we were sat, which we order every time. We really missed not getting it. Hopefully next time we’ll get to enjoy it.

I was hesitant to make reservations here after a bad experience with owner years ago, ( witnessed him being horrible to employees) however our go to restaurant for steak was under renovations so I thought well everyone had a bad day.
It was fabulous! Food was fabulous, Filets, veggies everything was perfect. We ordered the chocolate soufflé and that is a MUST! Well worth the wait!
We are once again fans and will become regulars again.
Service was great
