J Mark's Restaurant
Posted by Jenny on 07/21/2010
When your waiter walks up to you and asks you if you have been here before and you say no. His response should never have been, " no wonder because if you ever had me as a waiter you would never come back." That just set the mood for a disappointing meal. He was insulting and way to chatty about himself. Even if it was all meant as a joke there is a time and a place for that and that is not while working and trying to have a peaceful meal. My husband and I couldn't even enjoy eachothers company. As he said I will never go back to ANY J Marks again not just this one. It soured my whole experience and the food wasn't even that great.

Great location half way between Coral Springs and Pompano Beach. I meet my son there a few times a month and have never had a bad meal. Did have a situation one very busy night and the manager, Ariel, handled it extremely professionally. My son, daughter and I make this a regular dining experience. The food is truly amazing.

Just got back from this restaurant after trying it for the first time. It is a bit classy inside, with dim lighting, and clean decor. The servers all worked as a team, and were very on point and efficient. I was spoken to by about 7 employees all in one night who made eye contact and smiled, and warmly welcomed/served/said goodbye. The food was very reasonable--$9 for burgers, $10-$13 for salads, and a little higher for some other seafood/grilled items. Here is a synopsis on the food from each member of our table: Seared Ahi tuna salad with mango and avocado--one of the BEST quality tuna dishes i've had. Pastas--just ok. Caesar salad with salmon on top: amazing piece of fish, with a very fresh salad. Burger--generous, good quality, and delicious. Happy hour drinks: Yuengling for $2, and a delicious mojito in a martini glass for only $4--how can you go wrong? One point of constructive criticism for the restaurant: the wooden chairs were a bit heavy, a bit uncomfortable, and made a terribly loud noise as you drag them in or out. I would recommend some felt bumpers at the bottom of each chair and/or cushioning. I usually expect the worst when I try new places, but this place was exceptional. I would highly recommend trying J Marks if you haven't yet.

We've been there 3 times, once with friends at the bar, then for dinner. at a table(drinks are great). The 2nd and 3rd time, drinks and diner at the bar then drinks and lunch at the bar respectively. I enjoyed everything and to expect perfection overall, get real! With the exception of the female sever the 1st time, everything was great . I don't expect the staff to fall all over themselves serving us, but for the most part, I, myself and my friends are planning on going again and again and again!

The food was good but my waitress had an attitude problem. I wanted my steak well done but she wouldn't let me have it that way. She kept insisting that I get it medium rare or medium. I told her that I understood that it might come out a little hard but I wanted it well done anyways. Still...she kept making a face and insisting that I get it the other way. In the end, I had to compromise and get the steak medium-well. She was propably right in that the steak was juicier and all but still...it was just the principle of the situation...I wanted my steak well done and she wouldn't let me have it that way.

My wife and I have been regulars since the opening of JMarks, but after our experience today, we will NEVER return. Although the food and the waitress were top notch, the management was the worst I have ever seen. A man came to speak with my wife and I. He was insulting not only to us, but to the other guests around us at the time and the waitstaff as well. I even heard this man screaming obscenities in the kitchen! I don't know who decided to hire this man, but you are losing good customers because of him.

Finally a good food, good service, good prices and good atmosphere kind of place! Not to mention close to home, we live in Margate. Owner stopped by our table, and we loved our waiter (we sat in bar area) Craig. You HAVE to try the egg rolls, (avacado, sun dried tomatoe, among other great flavors, in a crispy crunchy roll) and the dipping sauce, oh my! I had the tuna salad, husband had the rib eye, soooo good. A fun place to go even for just drinks. Not a quiet romantic kind of a place so if thats what your looking for dont go. Not a sports bar place either with TV screens all over. More of a fun talk out loud, listen to cool tunes kind of a place. For sure we're going back, we dine out alot and are always looking for good spots!
