Mark’s Prime is at top of my list with Capital Grill and Ruths; I actually like Mark’s better as the atmosphere and ambiance is very warm and authentic. Service is professional and experienced. Looking forward already to my next visit to Gainesville.

We started by splitting the crab cakes appetizer. They were better than most. For entrees, I had the bone-in ribeye. My friend had the lamb chops. Both were excellent. We opted for the Lyonaise potatoes as a side, which were fine. And we split the creme brûlée, which was adequate, but certainly not exceptional.
The service provided by Kayleigh was outstanding, as was the supporting staff.

Overall, food was good, though pricier than comparable steakhouses. Escargot and Wellington appetizers were very good, as was the wedge salad. The onion soup was bland, watery with little onion flavor and the cheese on top was not melted, nor browned. It was disappointing. Steaks were terrific and perfectly cooked. Best value we had was the crabcakes. They were really good and well worth the $18. Creme brûlée was ok. Biggest miss were the cappuccinos. We ordered 3 and all 3 came as steamed milk with some cinnamon on top. They forgot the espresso. The excuse was that there was something wrong with the machine so we were not offered replacements.

Steaks were good. Sides were good as well. Prices were on the high side for the quality but probably best steaks in the area. My delmonico was great. Girlfriend’s son’s fillet was just ok. Girlfriend’s Strip was medium instead of medium rare.

Bread and drinks delivery super slow but server (Conner) was great.

Food, service from waitstaff was excellent. However general manager Ben was less than helpful. We asked about large group and Advance reservations and we’re shot down immediately by Ben. Saying how understaffed they are, that they couldn’t reserve the private room because they had to use it to turn tables fast. Wow. They use to cater to large groups. Inexplicable.

We ended up waiting over an hour for our dinner order. When the food came out the surf and turf special was completely cold, and we had to return it to be heated. The manager was kind enough to resolve this issue quickly and waive our cocktail drinks and appetizer for the long wait. Our waitress Kailee Tackman provided superb customer service and food and drink recommendations.

The food was incredible, as was the atmosphere, however part of what made this visit so great was our waiter, Connor. This is for sure our new go to place for a nice dinner in Gainesville. I highly recommend you go and ask for Connor as his recommendations were spot on. Thanks for a wonderful evening and we'll see you soon!

Excellent service but food quality wasn't what we expected. For a high end steak restaurant, we expected the steak to be cooked properly. 3/6 steaks in our party were overcooked. Too much butter on the steak and sides masked the true flavors of the dishes. For the $$$ spent we were looking For a better experience.

We had a great dinner and some drinks at Mark’s. Scott was our server (at our request), and he took very good care of us. Mark’s is our favorite restaurant in Gainesville - high end food and ambiance, great service and reasonable prices.

A huge thank you to Mark and Connor who made my birthday experience AMAZING. the food was delicious and Mark was super attentive and explanatory towards the specials of the night and the menu overall. He was so nice. Connor was super sweet and as well, very attentive. This was the perfect spot for a birthday dinner or any type of dinner, really. Everyone is so amazing and the hostess was also very kind! We came a little late, I called to let them know, and she adjusted everything for our reservation! I wish I got her name, but, super nice young lady. Can’t wait to come back and dine with y’all again!

Always a great time dining in a truly high quality steak house. But more importantly to me than the food and ambiance which are both incredible is the incredible wait staff. Their kind and quick to bring incredible service.
