Steak was well, well, well done. Otherwise I absolutely loved the service and atmosphere. I ordered the Ribeye and always get it medium, some pink. Was totally well done inside to the point it was basically leather.

People were in jeans/hoodies. Not the place In my opinion. Food was pretty salty. Our waiter was very good. He made suggestions, helped pick out wine. Overall a very nice evening.

Dined here last night for my partner's birthday; it was the first time there for both of us. The service was professional all around; our server was friendly and very attentive. All of the food was prepared exactly as we wanted it, and the cocktails were flavorful and well-balanced. Very nice atmosphere; low lighting and good music. It's much nicer on the inside than its outside appearance might suggest (this could be why some diners showed up in quite casual dress). Yes, it's pricy, but well worth it for a special occasion.

Have not dined at Marks since Covid. First thing missing was valet parking. Service was exceptional, however food was mediocre. Steaks for the most part were cooked to proper temperature, but missing that 5star aged beef flavor. Sides were poor with potato side cheesy and greasy. Our waiter was exceptional making overall experience good.

We spent over 500 here. Waiter was great! super good guy. Food was just very very average. Not nearly as good as it should be for an upscale price.

We had asked to sit outside but it was too windy. They moved us inside without any hesitation. The staff was great and so was the service. The food is always outstanding.

We had a drink at the bar before the dinner. The cocktails were excellent. At dinner I had the filet mignon which was excellent but my husband had the lamb chops which were spectacular. We both enjoyed our wines at dinner and the crème Brûlée was the best we’ve ever had. Kaylee our server couldn’t have been more attentive. It was our 45th anniversary and we had an excellent experience.

Atmosphere was good, not busy, service much like any restaurant. Value? Not really anything different than Chili’s, Applebee’s, or Red Lobster. The $51 filet was good but could get it cheaper for the value.

This is the second time we have been to Mark's in the last year. Although a little pricey for the location the food, for the most part, was very good. Three in our party ordered the Delmonico which was excellent. We learned this lesson from our last visit. Each were cooked to the right temperature and very tasty. Although one of us did order the brandy peppercorn sauce on the side it really was not needed. The fourth person in our party ordered the Tenderloin Tips which was just awful. It looked as if they just trimmed the fat from a cooked steak and served it as a dish. It was very rare, fatty and not very good. The person who ordered it opted not to return the dish or make a scene since we were there for a birthday celebration, and she didn’t want to put a blemish on the evening. She chalked it up to a poor execution by the kitchen. Just like our last visit, when we learned to skip the Lobster Escargot appetizer, this time we learned to skip the Steak Tips. For dessert we opted to try the tasting trio as a shared plate. This was good as it gave us an opportunity to try a little of each dessert without being overwhelmed. Of the three tastes the Chocolate Paradise was the clear winner.

We enjoyed our dinner at Mark’s, which I’d put in the Morton’s / Fleming’s / Capital Grille class of steakhouse.

Very pricey, but drinks were great, French onion soup and salads were delicious, and entrees were excellent.

We were able to dine outside (very nice, because the interior of the restaurant and the bar were pretty crowded).

Our server was extremely attentive, though the kitchen really took a long while to prepare the entrees.

Always fabulous at Marks but only one thing this last time. They don’t have valet parking due to COVID so they supposedly validate your parking for the parking garage but after they put the sticker on my ticket and I went to leave I still got charged $7 to park.
