About Mark's Restaurant

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.

Valentines Dinner was met with a table that wasn’t prepared so we stood there awkwardly in a crowded small dining room trying not to intrude on others until the table was set. Secondly, we waited 15 minutes or more for a drink order with 15 more minutes to arrive. Third, the trout tater tots came out cold with a pasty undercooked center after waiting 30 minutes after placing the order. We sent them back and returned with just barely cooked trout tots, still with a pasty center and really no trout to be found after another 30 minutes of waiting. Dinner finally arrived another 45 long minutes later. The steak was good however, the side vegetables were cold. My fiancé ordered the duck and the entire plate arrived cold including her vegetables and additional side. The entire dinner date stated at 7:15 and we finally left after 9:45. I’ve been to Marks before and never experienced this but it was an experience worth noting after paying $110 for just the meal and drinks without a 20% tip. I don’t believe I’ll be going back unless I’m invited by others.

Food was sloppy and lacked flavor. The menu had potential. I order the special, crab cakes were burnt and my meal as well as my dates were thrown together. My date ordered the chicken and the sauce was poured all over the plate in addition to the chicken. Would not eat here again.

The food selection was very good, all four meals were quite good. Drinks were very good, the atmosphere was quiet, you could have a nice conversation. The waitress seemed a bit pre-occupied is my only concern. I will be back to try more of your delicious menu.

Mark's has excellent food at acceptable prices for the quality. Service was good but not overbearing. When the restaurant is full, it is very noisy, especially in the back corner. It remains one of the top 2 or 3 restaurants in the Triad.

Two or three of us enjoyed the good burgers. I enjoyed the mushroom soup and shepherds pie that were specials. In the past I have enjoyed the ostrich entrée. One of us complimented the mac and cheese and another the wrap. Each couple shared a desert , and as I recall the key lime pie and chunk chocolate bread pudding were pleasing. Presentation and service were good.

Third or fourth time eating here. Ordered the beef filet. It was cooked perfectly medium, however there was no sauce and the steak could have had more flavor. The apple potato cake was very tasty. My wife’s scallops were perfectly seared and delicious. Tiramisu was average.

the food was wonderful, some of the best chicken ever. the only complaint was the coffee was kinda weak, but that is a small price to pay for all the great food we did get.

Tried to make reservations for 3 but OpenTable system kept defaulting to 2. Even tried to Modify to 3 with no success. I included a note to the restaurant that the RESERVATION was for 3, not 2. They had four days to read the note and call if necessary. Nothing. When we got there they said they only had a table for two and we could squeeze three at the table. I explained 4-5 times that I put a note to the restaurant about increasing it to 3 but they talked to me like I was a liar. All my fault, not theirs. All they wanted to do was argue. Mark read the note for the first time while standing there. VIP, Reservation is for 3, not 2, birthday. Offered to put us at the bar but with underage granddaughter it wouldn't work. Offered to set table up in the entrance in front of the bathrooms. I declined and said we would go somewhere else. We have been patronizing Marks for twenty years going back when he was on Westover. I won't have to worry about being embarrassed again. Very unprofessional.

Service was slow, salmon was undercooked and raw in places but I was afraid to send it back as I feared I would starve before I got it back again.
We expected a great experience after reading about it in the newspaper but my husband’s Kobe chopped steak was overdone. It will be awhile before we go back or recommend it to others.

Where do I start. I had high hopes from all the reviews I had read. Got there and was lead to a table in the middle of the room. Asked for one in a little quieter area and was offered one by the window. It was so loud we couldn’t hear each other talking even though we were sitting less than three feet demo each other. Waitress was quick to get us water and drinks. After that it was like we didn’t exist. Another waiter came by to take our order after sitting for 20mins. Ordered Shrimp Risotto which was fair. Extreamly small portions, the Risotto was all of five bites with three shrimp about the size of a silver dollar. My date ordered a salad with scallops on the side. The salad was soaking wet and wilted, the scallops came on top of the salad after she had said twice, on the side. We were brought bread after saying we didn’t want any. Had to wait for a second glass of wine. Did I say it was loud? Wow I still can’t get over that. Any way it was a terrible experience for my date and I was horrified after telling her that the place got rave reviews. I may go back, just to give them another chance. But if it’s as loud as it was that night the next time, I’ll just turn around and walk out.

We had enjoyed Mark's on a previous visit (with coupon) but had forgotten to return until we read the review in the N & R. Deb and I split the salmon dish. She was more enthusiastic about it - I found it nothing special. We had the soup as well and both thought that it was excellent - creamy and plenty of chicken. She mentioned politely to the server that the main course could have been warmer. I appreciate the fact (mentioned by Batchelor) that conversation is easy. It's easy to hear one another. We like the ambience. We'll return. An excellent place to come with friends. One grammatical error in your stylishly produced menu. It's at the very bottom - I forget what the topic is. But you have a compound (plural) verb and a singular subject. Probably something that ddn't get caught in the composition process.

Enjoyed our meal at marks again. This was for my birthday and as always the duck off of the gluten free menu was excellent. Connor was an excellent server and even went out of his way to get some gluten free bread for mw and brought a yummy creme brulee as a special treat free of charge for my birthday. It is always worth the drive from High Point and the quiet room makes a nice place to have a conversation.

The Chilean sea bass was outstanding. Our server Deborah was attentive but not intrusive. This is a great restaurant who doesn't seem to need loud music to entertain their guests and I appreciate that. One of the few restaurants in Greensboro that we can go to and have a conversation and not have to shout.

I had the duck and replaced sweet potato hash for the mac and cheese. Phenomenal... never had duck before but loved it. My husband had the fried chicken which was really unbelievably great. My mother-in-law had the quill and she raved about it. Aaron was our waiter and he was great and very knowledgeable we enjoyed him very much.

The food was amazing but the wait between courses was unforgivable. We spent over two hours there. I did order a souffle for dessert (which needs a 45minute advance order) ... at the same time I ordered my salad and entre and yet I still found myself waiting for over 30minutes after I'd finished my entre for the dessert to appear. I don't know that I would try Mark's again.
