Killed a poor oyster

For a steakhouse that is supposed to be great how can you make raw oysters that are so bad. We'll stop wondering and accept it. Staff is cool and entertaining. Drinks are equally good. But.... a raw oyster should be just raw

We were in town visiting friends and were lucky enough to go to this restaurant on Restaurant/Food week. For four people getting the restaurant special (ribeye and potato, salad and dessert) plus a round of drinks was around $250. The in-town couple said the last time they were there, their dinner for two was around the same price (so we... More

Expensive but delicious food and good service. Start with the very cheese y Caesar salad. Steak is always cooked exactly as requested, and barbecue sauce is great. If you ask for horseradish, it is creamy and delicious. Love that this wine-country restaurant shows its respect by having no corkage fee. For this alone, it's worth giving them some business.

First time here. Friends who still live in town said it was good. So we went. Great service, excellent food. A little pricey but not unreasonable. Very busy considering it was a week night.

Very good steak though my medium rare came out moo'ing. Super expensive, this is definitely a special occasion restaurant. All sides and salads are an individual charge and pretty expensive ($7 for a fully dressed baked potato.) They brought us this delicious bread smothered in butter and garlic. The potato fondue appetizer was very good, perfectly roasted potatoes with a... More

We were referred here by a local who proclaim this the best steak ever. Maybe she doesn't get out much. It was ok. Not great. Neighborhood is scary. The place is large And very dark in true steakhouse style. There are multiple steak choices and seafood too. It's all a la cart and expensive. Steak was too large but mostly... More

We were able to make a reservation through open table and they accommodated our request for a booth for two at 8:30 on Thursday before Valentine's Day. The waitress was polite and informative with the questions regarding the menu. I had the scallops with a side of mushrooms and my husband had the steak and shrimp special with the loaded... More

This is a very good place to eat. Go on line to see the menu and if you see something you like be assured they do it well. Owning a restaurant is a tricky business. Many restaurants fail every year. Well the owners of Starks own SEVERAL. It's weird they all serve great food. The owners must know what they... More

First time was great. Second time so awful we will never return. Service was mediocre. One of us ordered salad and was told to hurry and eat it because I order was up. Then we waited forever (1/2 plus), for meal. Ordered filets. Terrible, tough not hot. My fish was not done and cold. Side dishes were luke warm at... More

It was a great steakhouse. I had the butterfish, kale salad and rosemary yam fries. All were absolutely delicious! My husband had the ribeye with bacon and broccoli. They were extremely flavorful and he portions were very large! In fact, we ordered two sides and could have just stuck with one to share because there was so much food. The... More
