I have dined here many many times. The food has generally been good but yesterday 11 13 lunch was terrible.
Waldorf salad was all mushy apples and the chef s answer was after he julienned the apples they got soggy.
My father s veal Milanese had a very tough batter which has the odour of old oil. The batter totally separated from the veal like a coat of armory.
Vegetable sides of spinach and hen of the wood mushrooms were fine lackluster
While the food here was tasty enough , it is obscenely overpriced. Worst of all , the server recommended a particular gin for a martini without mentioning the price and when the bill came , the charge was $42 for one drink, almost twice the price for an (already expensive) regular( i.e. Bombay Sapphire) martini!
Admittedly when a manager was called over he reduced the price by 1/2 but by then it was impossible to escape the feeling of being taken advantage of.
While we enjoy and will continue to visit other Jean George NYC restaurants (Perry St, Jojo), this one is off our list and "off The Mark"!
It simply the best! On the UES restaurants either tend to be a much older crowd or have no atmosphere. The Mark is a great mix of people with a a great place to have a drink with a friend or have an amazing meal.
Not at all up to par for service on Friday night....I go there often and I was disappointed this time.
Waiter charged us a $7.50 delivery fee?
When pointed out he corrected according to him, but still ran higher bill.
Great place for Sunday brunch
We have been to the Mark and it has always been a favorite. Service, food and overall quality of restaurant completely changed. Would definitely not recommend for anything but a casual drink. Food, quality, service and overall experience a complete disappointment. They need to regroup before we will go back
TERRIBLE SERVICE - MEDIOCRE FOOD. THEY HAD TO ASK US 3 TIMES IF WE WANTED COFFEE AND IT CAME A WHILE AFTER THAT. LOTS OF STAFF, NO ONE COULD HELP.
We had 5 appetizers, all were good but nothing special or even extra creative. Nicely executed and all but nothing more. We had the dry aged ribeye that was very good but it came with very simple French fries. Out of the 3 other entrees, one was sent back due to temperature and general dislike and the other 2 were just solid good. None of the deserts is something to write home about.
All and all it was a nice meal but nothing more.
The smoke salmon is amazing, including the way they serve it. A bit pricey, but worth it.
Excellent smoked salmon
Lamb chops were delicious
Love the kale salad
the kale salad is so boring and too much dressing.
the bass was delicious.
The service was terrible. We’ve been here dozens and dozens of times because we live in the neighborhood. For some reason the service was awful on Sunday and no one had a reason or an apology.
The lighting has changed, there used to be nice lighting in the bar area with golden light it seems like the lights are now energy saving blue white lights? I have a sensitivity to those kind of lights. Usually I love the food but this time I ordered the artichoke and it had not been cooked properly it was very hard believes almost impossible to eat and it arrived very late also I love the coconut soup and it tasted heavy and not anything like it usually takes this is usually one of my very favorite restaurants but this experience was not one of my favorite experiences at the Mark
I'm a regular at the restaurant. Everytime I go I love the food more and more. Can't wait to go back for my favorite chicken crusted parmigiana. 😀
Food is of course top notch but approaching silliness in terms of price. $56 for tenderloin of beef? $28 for a Caesar salad? Likewise, Wine list is excellent but very hard to find anything below $250 in reds, which is unnecessary.
Chairs are quite uncomfortable, quite low to the ground and there is a built in bolster by the coccyx which pushes the diner forward.
With all the other Jean-Georges offerings in the city, which are more comfortable s less over the top in terms of cost, unlikely to visit this one again.
Always lovely eating and experiencing the magic of The Mark!
Some issue with bar not making our drinks and literally got them AFTER our food!!! There was a very half-hearted apology from the waitress who said “oh isn’t that funny your drinks took longer than your food?”. Um not really considering what you are paying and how many wait staff/food runners they have. Also bread was never served to us or any nearby tables (past times we’d been for brunch they came by offering bread numerous times).
Very disappointing as we live nearby & had guests in from out of town that we were telling about how much we enjoy brunch here. Really need to improve the service for what you are paying...
The service was flaky at best, leading to mismatch on order to what we would have liked. Too bad as have enjoyed The Mark restaurant previously.
Very nice ambience with spacious seating and good energy. Service was excellent and the food was extraordinary. Even though it was crowded, I was able to have a good conversation without strain8ng to hear!
Lovely meal. Food was terrific, atmosphere lovely, and the staff was helpful and attentive. Highly recommend.
Very overpriced for just OK food. I've had better food at dive bars. We also had a shrimp cocktail that was very questionable.
For the first time in history our dining experience was a disaster! Our order shuffled, late, items missing. We waited 25 mins for attention. Water wasn’t filled, coffee served all wrong. Just a total, total disaster. I had plans to return this Friday- but I am cancelling. Not sure what has gone wrong but it looks like the usually staff is missing and no one knows what they are doing.
The food was over cooked and flavorless. We had to send back 2 steaks ordered medium rare that came out well done. Replacement entrees had to be different since they were out of the steaks that were ruined and arrived 20 min after the others ate. When the bill arrived we were charged for the new entrees and when we complained desert was removed from the bill. For a restaurant like this and a $700 + Tip meal that was a disaster maybe they could have taken more off the bill? Maybe offered the replacement entrees at no charge? Maybe the manager could have been more sympathetic for making an awkward experience at what is supposed to be a good restaurant? The waiter put in an good effort but the food was terrible all around. I wouldn’t recommend eating here especially for this price and experience. I have been to this restaurant in the past and it has clearly gone down hill.
Consistently delicious.....however, I think the menu needs some updating. Worth a visit.
We always enjoy the Mark. The food & service are great!
The waiter kept forgetting to bring our coffee and take our orders.
Chicken Caesar Salad was bland, dull, boring, disgustingly presented. Never never again!!
Rolando excellent waiter!
One of the best restaurants in NYC. It is as close to perfection as you can get: the food, the setting, the service. An excellent choice for all occasions
Pretty room. Very old crowd. Ok food. Overpriced. Busy hotel bar.
I do not go to The Mark restaurant if I can help it but my friend picked it. Room pretty but food just not good. The crispy sushi used to be good w nice fish now it’s tiny pieces which aren’t fresh. Tuna burger not good. Food very subpar and very pricey. And it’s the same menu for years since it opened. Service mediocre. They serve and forget you. Go to Cafe Boulud a Bloch south for superb food.
Excellent all around
Best food in the neighborhood, best Dover Sole I eat in New York
Everything was outstanding but the hostesses who had no system for knowing who was there waiting for another guest. I sat in the lobby for a half hour and my friend sat at a table inside waiting for me. She checked in one entrance and gave my name but they never conveyed this to the other hostess who kept telling me my friend never arrived. By the time we figured it out we both we EXTREMELY upset which took away from what was supposed to be a most special afternoon. I hadn’t seen her in five years md she is the best friend I’ve ever had. The hostesses should be fired and replaced with people who have brains and common sense.
Great time there. The menu selection is perfect. The winelist is great too
The restaurant was ok but a little disappointing, especially considering the very high prices. Food was fine but one could easily find better for less pain to the wallet. The service was indifferent, the birthday celebration that I indicated in the reservation went unremarked upon, and this was nowhere near what I expected from my other Jean-George restaurant experiences.
I probably wouldn't consider coming back - many better options out there.
The lobster salad and veal milanese were exceptional, as was the service!
A little dark- can’t see the menu without your phone. Otherwise great service and ambiance.
Was the perfect cozy spot for lunch with a friend on a torrential rainy day. .... staff out front was great too..
