Mark's always offers seasonal cuisine and classic American dishes that are fresh and always nicely presented. Good wine selection, service friendly and always smooth. I recommend requesting table upstairs so you can overlook the neat church setting and see the wine cellar. Chef Mark Cox...More

As part of our Valentine/Birthday celebration, we made reservations at Mark's, our first time since we moved to Houston in 2000. The wait was worth it and I can tell you we'll be back but we have to save our pennies a bit. Pricey but...More
