Stay Away from this Dump!.
Wife and I went to Mark Anthony's restaurant tonight and had the worst dining experience ever. We had a perfectly good Happenings coupon which the waitress refused to honor. We spoke to the manager, and he too said that they were not accepting the coupon anymore because of financial difficulties. The place was bare except for the rowdy friends of the waitress. I had to get up and look for her to get a refill on my drink. She was sitting talking to her friends.
The salad was old and wilted and the chicken alfredo that I ordered hardly had any sauce in it and they just threw a piece of chicken breast on top which I had to cut up myself. This restaurant is not going to be around very long. My advice is Stay as far away from this place as possible!
Great Italian. Great food, great service. I personally think the one stars are the same woman complaining over and over again. I have been there at least ten times, all great.
excellent food, great people relaxed atmosphere.
Excellent food, real friendly people, ample portions
I recommend the Peach Cobbler for dessert
Manager/Owner needs Customer Service Training.
My Wife and I ate there this evening spending 56 dollars plus Tip and I must say they left a Bad taste in my Mouth. It was not from the Food but the way that they mistreated their Customer. This mistreatment came from "you", the Owner, Mrs Mark Anthony.
We accidentally left our leftover boxes at our Table (which as you stated happens often) but less than 10 minutes we came back as we live Local. You threw them out without setting them aside. This you stated was your common procedure and that no one comes back. Well Surprise Surprise, We Came Back!!! As a Local Suburban Restaurant you should think that people might come back. Did I mention that we had a Plentiful amount of Food Leftover; a 1/2 12oz Ribeye Steak and Cobb Salad. A Simple Sorry would have been Sufficient not a Smug Reply.
I was not expecting you to refund us our money nor give me a new plate, but your lacksidasical Attitude toward me was Just So Astounding, 30 yrs in Business???
Shame on you! As the Owner you should hold the highest standards for Customer Service and should set the example to your Staff.
Now it doesn't surprise me to why your Restaurant did not have a wait line. Blue Fish, Wing Nuts, Red Robin all overflowing with Business.
As we enjoyed our Dinner at Mark Anthony's in the Past we decided to patronize your restaurant again. No more and never again! I'd rather wait 2 hrs then see your Smug Face Again.
Awesome! this isn't the entire article but you get the point!.
Dining out: Mark Anthony's By Stacey KratzDeseret NewsPublished: Friday, Nov. 28, 2008 12:37 a.m.
Mark Anthony's is an oasis of locally owned charm and quality amid the sea of chain eateries that dominate Riverton's restaurant options.This restaurant serves up lovingly made, high-quality Italian food with plenty of unique twists, at a price point that is significantly lower than I expected. Plus, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the service is attentive and cheerful.Our group of five adults and one noisy 2-year-old visited Mark Anthony's for lunch on a recent weekday, after some other lunch plans fell through. Boy, were we glad they did, from the moment our appetizer platter arrived hot and toasty in the middle of our table.We had the combination appetizer, an option that lets diners choose three appetizers from Mark Anthony's menu. We had the sausage-stuffed mushrooms, the hot spinach and artichoke dip and the bruschetta, each in a little dish, surrounded by warm, buttery little toasts. The mushrooms and dip were beautifully browned, and the bruschetta topping ruby-red, fragrant and cool.The dip, spread on toast, was creamy, musky and showed off the flavors of the vegetables, while each mushroom was a rich, not-at-all-greasy little bite of meaty heaven. But my favorite was the bruschetta topping, with perfectly ripe tomatoes and lots of garlic and herbs. We all had salad, a big bowl served family style with fresh greens, croutons and lots of veggies, including black olives. With mine I had a little cup of the house Italian vinaigrette, simple and deliciously sour. And we all enjoyed Mark Anthony's breadsticks, crisp-crusted braided rolls served hot on actual wooden sticks, but they were a particular favorite with my 2-year-old son, who ate almost two of them in addition to his spaghetti with marinara sauce and a big, savory meatball.

Ugh. I don't know how they even stay in business.. I've given this restaurant a few chances. A few chances too many. The salad is terrible. The dressing is just oil and vinegar, salt and pepper. And it's the cheap stuff too - not even olive oil. Bland, flavorless boring. I ordered the chicken parm and got this soggy mess. When I complained the owner told me that "they don't fry it like Olive Garden." Funny, the menu describes it as crispy and you don't have to fry it to get it crispy. It was so soggy I could make a little soggy breadcrumb mountain. When I asked for a new one that was crispy, the OWNER scraped the breading off of my piece and sent it back to me! Even my spaghetti was overcooked. The only plus were the complimentary breadsticks. Nothing else is made well, with love or care. Horrible food. I would never recommend it to anyone.
Great food!!. We have been to Mark Anthony's several times, the first time the service wasn't the best but it was the first week it had been open so I'm sure there were issues they were taking care of because every other time we've been the service has been great. The salad is terrific and the spaghetti and meatballs are extremely delicious. I definitely recommend this restaurant.
Skip this place. Waited over 30 minutes after finishing the salads and complained to manager that we still don't have our food and could not wait any longer. Agreed to take out the suddenly ready entrees and manager gave a discount off the bill. The food was not very good. Everything tasted bland.
