We attended our reservation ! And we stayed at the bar and mu reservation was never confimed
Very odd experience for lunch. Wait staff was great and ambiance is very nice.
Food was not. My wife had tuna nicoise which came with, literally, a cylinder of canned tuna, like it was just plopped out of a can. My daughter has a sushi special that was very small, 4 or 5 pieces and wasn't very flavorful; maybe even a bit spoiled. Son had some type of caesar salad with, I think shrimp, but he didn't finish it. Oh well, live and learn.
Went for brunch. The food is good. but the service is extremely slow. won't be returning.
The Jean George Restaurants have become a “very good standard restaurant”. It is no longer an outstanding place to dine. At the Mark food is always on the edge of been very good or just ok. I think they should make and effort to gain its past glory or risk to loose any reputation that is left.
Food was awful, both my friend and I received meals that were bland and dry (burger and chicken). Unfortunate, as we were looking for this to be a special meal.
We really enjoy the tuna tartare, which is very consistent with the version at the Jean Georges restaurant in trump tower. A lot of the other dishes are a bit ordinary and a bit on the expensive side. However in all a pleasant dining experience.
Over priced. $27 Octapus App had 5 very small pieces of Octapus with potatoes that looked to be the same. I did say something and they brought more. But, it after that, it seemed like they just wanted us out of a very dark corner table next to kitchen. Bad experience.
One of the best restaurants on upper east side! Expensive but worth every bite. Save for special occasion.
but food is delicious & service is perfect
Beautiful room, seated in room with glass ceiling. Overpriced. Bread was cold and a little stale. Shouldn’t be at a restaurant this expensive. Impression is they cater to wealthy locals who live in the neighborhood and tourists staying at the hotel. Nougatine is soooo much better.
From the food to the service, it was a perfect afternoon!
Have been to the Mark many times, but last night the food was very off - maybe a new chef - Jean George
should check it out - also the chairs are most uncomfortable - don't think we will go back after many years of eating there.
Always great food and service
It was so loud, a waiter asked us if we wanted to move. We did and really appreciated it.
I made a booking by mistake thinking it was the other Jean George. I'm a frequent diner at the one in Shanghai and since my gf has never tried and neither have I tried the mark, I thought we would both give it a try. Horrible food, salad was too dry, angel hair looked like chow mein, even the table next to me whom i heard every single word of the conversation commented on how bad the angel hair looked.
My striploin had to be done twice as the kitchen got the medium rare wrong. It turned out to be medium even when cut down the middle. I own 7 restaurants as a hobby and have a Michelin star in the stable, I think I can tell what's medium rare and what's not. One of the waiters insisted that if I cut down the middle it would be medium rare. He wasn't there when I cut it to show the other waiter and still insisted that he's right. Horrible horrible horrible.
A hidden gem on the upper east side.
From ambiance to food to the service, it's all on Mark!
Food was great. Unfortunately, for some of "older" folk, the teenagers (?) were extremely exuberant, screaming & laughing at top volume.....this makes conversation difficult.
Services was terrible.
One of my favorite stand-by places. Consistently good food and usually the other patrons interesting.
Made my mother and my birthday so special thank you so much
The food was very good but the service was terrible.
Waiter and staff were not attentive and didn't clean table and was exceptional slow..
Forgot to serve the amuse.
The GM said they were having staffing problems and that was the reason but that is his problem and not mine.
No one seemed to be in charge.
The Mark ruined what should have been a wonderful anniversary dinner.
Based on the service, I would not go back especially based on their very high prices.
Other restaurant at this level have excellent food and service which is why people go there.
Save your money and go somewhere else.
A good UES hotel restaurant. I really liked the menu and wine list, creative and varied. The pasts I did not like were layout (1/3 of people passing me hit the back of my chair), noise level, and some aspects of service (I never like cold butter being put on the table).
Ambiance and personnel outstanding. Service excellent without being hauty. Disappointed in caeser salad Just ordinary and bland. Good good but overpriced. Wine and liquor prices over the moon. On the rocks not even a full glass for what they charged. Hostess Jeniffer exceptional . Be sure to ask for back room. Quieter waiters very nice
I mentioned that it was a special occasion and they gave us the best table and brought over a dessert that said happy graduation. Thank you!
We had an excellent experience at The Mark and look forward to returning for another delicious meal.
As always this is a perfect dining setting. The food, ambiance and service is delicious and professional.
My guests loved it and will return soon.
service totally indifferent -difficult to wave down a waiter. embarrassing when entertaining. food, less than expected.
Eater's delight! All--please know this is a wondrous place where the waiters speak French, Italian, and Spanish (if not more), address their customer's with the utmost respect, and have a wonderful (but not invasive) sense of humor. The value is well worth it. I had the scallops, and they were beautifully cooked and paired with roaster green peppers. The portions are perfect. I can't say enough about how accommodating the staff is. The ambiance was incredible; cozy yet spacious; greenery abound, but sleek. Not very loud at all, and the music was low, and agreeable. The menu is very well paired to the wine list.
Service was poor - ordering took awhile even though place was half full, then food took a long time to come out and was just ok and servers kept giving dishes to the wrong person at the table.
While the food was good the service was terrible - our lunch took forever and we had to ask repeatedly for things to be fixed... disappointing!
Always a great neighborhood favorite. Consistency in food and service.
Excellent location. Good place for a business breakfast. Staff is very attentive and not intrusive. Food is simple with excellent quality.
So we come here on a regular basis
So disgusted by the bathrooms
No toilet paper, no towels to dry your hands, no bathroom attendants. The floor was a mess just really gross and unkept
I get back to my table and a bus boy steps on my foot at my table
I’m wearing open toed $ 1400 new shoes and a pedicure while he steps on my foot w big black shoes
My shoes are then filthy , my toe is black and throbbing
Just said sorry and walks away
Didn’t bother saying anything to the manager since he saw what happened and didn’t come over
I’m officially adding this to my list of never again
Nursing my toe and getting a pedicure
Tres decevant tres cher tres bruyant, pas au niveau de jean georges service nul, sommelier ignorant
The disappointing evening began with a very cold greeting by the maitre d’ and an assistant. I had requested a quiet table, and ended up with table in a wonderfully bright room with piercing noise level, and maybe 6 inches away from two men who seemed to think it was important that we hear their entire conversation. Not the fault of the restaurant - but beware that if you are seated anywhere that room in a banquet your neighbors will be practically sitting in our lap. I asked that we be moved, and we were taken to a table adjacent to the kitchen door. It was in a less noisy area. I did not mind sitting by the kitchen, as I assumed that would ensure our servers would be nearby. Wrong! The “service’”, if you can call it that, was mostly non-existent. Clearly, this restaurant does not follow the quaint custom of restaurants at any level - especially at overpriced celebrity-chef restaurants - of having the captain and the waiter (a) ask how the food is, (b) inquire during the meal whether there was anything else that was needed, and (c) keep an eye out during the meal so that the patron does not have to flag down other waitstaff to get a refill of water. The food was mostly ordinary, at best. What a terrible disappointment. New York City offers so many better options, both in the high end and at the neighborhood level.
Used to be better but is a nice place to have lunch with some friends
Love Brunch at the Mark. Extensive menu whether you want breakfast or lunch. Service was very professional as well. Started with the black truffle pizza, had a burger, and several salads with chicken and salmon. All cooked to perfection. A very extensive wine list as well.
