We've gone here various times now. I almost always get a steak, which is where they excel. The prime bone in ribeye is tough to beat. Not sure why this restaurant is let higher on the trip advisor list. As far as nice restaurants in Santa Rosa go, this has to be in the top 4. Great ambiance and attention.... More

One of the better steakhouses in California. love the grass fed/finished option for select cuts. There house garlic bread is sinful

My family just dined at Starks this last weekend. They have a full bar, great menu and extensive wine list, and good atmosphere. Their entree's are just that- side dishes are extra, so it gets spendy quickly althougth all of our dinners were great- really enjoyed the prime rib. The service however was suprisingly a bit lacking-too bad

Great place for steaks and fish! They do not have a corking fee so we took our favorite bottle of wine with us. thought the oysters and shrimp cocktails were pricey.

Best steak house in wine country and they charge NO CORKAGE, which is amazing. The service was excellant. I highly recommend Stark's.

We try to eat at Stark's whenever we're in the Santa Rosa. We were able to go again on our last visit, and once again, we were really pleased with the quality of food and the service. I'm gluten-free, and they have a special menu for gluten-free. This makes ordering so much easier. They also have a great wine list... More

We splurged for dinner at Stark's on our anniversary weekend in Santa Rosa, especially since it was only three blocks from our hotel. It was a wonderful meal. We started with dungeness crab tater tots, which were a delicious novelty. My prime bone-in New York strip was cooked perfectly, flavorful and tender. It was topped by a glass of wonderful... More

My husband and I recently visited Starks for his birthday dinner. Service was polite at best. Food was good, however it is served very minimally. I ordered a New York steak, and that is exactly what I received, in the middle of a large plate. Side dishes are seved and charged separately. Including tip, our bill was $138.00. We had... More

We're very thankful to a helpful/knowledgeable local sommelier we encountered who pointed us in the direction of this place... we wouldn't have found it otherwise! A proper daytime gem at happy hour. Sports on screens behind the bar did not overpower the cool atmosphere in the rest of the bar. Excellent cocktails, and tapas we couldn't stop ordering, the mini... More
