Wish we would have had dinner here. Casual chic restaurant in an area with few options. We had cocktails in the lounge. There was a gentleman belting out Frank Sinatra tunes and he must be popular because the place was packed. No bar menu. The restaurant menu was available in the bar, but we were in search of small plates.... More

The Mark is popular because there's so few nice restaurants to go to in Bakersfield. The Mark offers good food and service but the price is over inflated. On average they're charging at least $10 more than the plate should even be worth. A couple of the reasons someone might go to this restaurant would include being seen and because... More

Cheapest plate is $22 for pasta, which had no flavor and very small proportions for the price. The average price of dinner was about $30 a plate and they didn't have very much to choose from. The waiter seemed to get upset that my wife and I didn't order an appetizer and or alcoholic beverages, due to never checking on... More

I recently went out for a date to The Mark and was excited. I heard the food was amazing. It did not disappoint to some extent. The clam chowder was one of the best I have ever had. It was very creamy and delicious. The valet team was very professional and attended to us a timely manner. Unfortunately, that is... More

My Hubby and I enjoy date night dinners at The MARK! It's located in the Heart of Downtown Bakersfield, in a restored Historic building that dates back to the early 1900's! They have NO Joke, Ginormous Alaskan King Crab Legs!! It's always a lively crowd there and they have LIVE Music too! (Weekend LIVE Jazz and The Kelly Brothers dueling... More

Excellent food, inviting atmosphere, and an attentive, friendly waitress --- a really great night out!. The was a misunderstanding on our hors d'oeuvre order (probably my fault); but the maitre d' handled the situation with aplomb and we were not even charged for one or our hors d'oeuvres. The wine menu was ample and our selection turned out to be... More

We had been talking about going here for some time. I looked up the menu online and the listed prices seemed reasonable. We arrived early for our our reservations and were seated immediately and tended to by a great staff. Upon opening the menu I realized the prices I saw online were nowhere near what I was seeing. No matter,... More

The atmoshere and the service were very good, which is why I didn't give it 2 stars. The food was very below average. I ordered the shrimp stuffed with crab. It was completely tasteless. The stuffing consisted almost entirely of bread crumbs. I could not see or taste any crab. My husband had the chicken piccata which was also very... More
