    We have celebrated our May anniversary here for many years. This dinner was day after Valentine’s and an early birthday celebration for my wife. We always share the Lobster Escargot, perfect for two as an appetizer. We ordered bottle of Jordan Chardonnay (we stock Jordan Cabernet at home) as an accompaniment. My wife had her favorite sea scallops beautifully caramelized top and bottom with a silky translucent center. I had a pair of lamb chops that were as tender melted in your mouth as Mark’s fillet mignon. We shared Lyonnaise potatoes and Brussels sprouts broiled with bacon bits. Our server brought a complementary cheese cake for my wife complete with a little candle! I stole a couple bites to enjoy with my coffee. Our server was attentive, professional, and comfortably in tune with our visit. She made our evening even more enjoyable than usual. We drive an hour to get to Mark’s in Gainesville. It’s always worth the trip and we have always enjoyed our meals there.

    Mark's has always been our go to place for celebrations. You can generally count on amazing food and terrific service. Our Valentines Day experience was disappointing. Mark's always gives a rose to the ladies on Valentines day. This year the roses were entirely wilted and the thorns had not been removed. We didn't bother to take it home. Who wants a dead rose? The food service was simply unacceptable. It took an hour to get our food. Our server was very attentive and he was very apologetic about the wait. Our bill was $129 and we had no alcohol. We will look for alternatives in the future.

    Normally a great place , but last night was not good at all! Appetizers were overcooked , Steak ( ordered medium ) was very dry like it was cooked in oven too long ( had that taste ). just overall not a great night at Mark's Prime Steakhouse. And no I didn't bring it up or send the food back , to many horror stories about what they do to those ppl , we ate a little , boxed up the rest and left.

    Service was great. Nice bar area and great hostess. Server was observant and not rushed to make sure we had an excellent experience. Food was really great and steak came out on a scalding hot plate which gave the steak a nice temp that was perfect. Drinks, wine recommendations and dessert wrapped up the evening. I’d easily go back again.

    Incredible food but the service was lacking. For $100+ per person, the service should be much better. The kitchen had a “snafoo” with our appetizers and the when the manager notified us, he didn’t even offer anything to make up for the lengthy delay.

    I have no idea why I spent $50 plus on a steak that I could’ve cooked better myself and gotten a better quality cut myself. Marks used to be one of my favorite places in Gainesville, haven’t been in a few years and it is noticeably worse than it used to be. Service was good, but was never asked if I liked my steak, or if it was cooked properly, which it was not, it was over cooked . Twice baked potato was good. Bread was undercooked and raw on the inside. Unless something changes there’s a lot better way to spend $100 in Gainesville (dined by myself).

    I am from out of town visiting my parents who live in Gainesville. Decided to treat them, my cousin from out of town and my family to Mark's. There were 6 of us. The food was very good but I expected a whole lot better table service. We started with a secondary server who brought water and bread but then disappeared. The drinks were slow to come out and then the appetizers we ordered were left in front of us, on empty dishes, for almost 20 minutes. The secondary server nor the main server ever came back to the table to clear the appetizer plates and/or ask if we needed more drinks/bread. The main server finally came back to clear the plates and then came with the entrees and another server came with all the sides....It is important to provide prompt table clearing in between courses and not leave empty dishes in front of guests. This isn't Applebees so the quality of service should be much higher. Otherwise, the food was very well prepared and the tastes were good.

    Most flavorful food we’ve had in a very long time!! French onion soup..wonderful! Filet…perfection! Herb Chicken was so freaking amazing I wanted to lick the plate!! Seriously! Had the creamed spinach & Brussels sprout sides! Truly excellent! And….get this….all food brought on on sizzling hot plates so food is piping hot entire time! And bread was also outstanding although I don’t allow myself to eat much of it. 🤔 Alex was an excellent waiter! The martinis were superb. I had a totally sugar free lemon drop & it was fresh without any premade syrup crap. Will visit again next time in Gainesville 🥰

    I chose this particular restaurant because my husband and i enjoyed it when we visited jacksonville for our first wedding anniversary. So i reserved for 12/28 our 5th wedding anniversary in Gainesville. When i booked i let them know it was for an anniversary. We didn't get offered the dessert. Other couples who celebrated that evening were acknowledged by the servers. We had to ask for the sourdough bread, had to ask for refills, it wasn't as enjoyable as the one in jacksonville we left feeling disappointed in the service we had unfortunately.

    Steaks and bread were great. Appetizers were not. Super thin sliced seared tuna and overly breaded calamari. For a steak house, I expected more quality and quantity of the good stuff.
