Absolutely wonderful. 35th anniversary celebration and all the food was perfect. Prime meat was prime which meant it was fatty and wonderful, as it was supposed to be. All meat was cooked perfectly and the vegetable sides were fantastic. Service was pleasant and no corkage fee was appreciated. Definitely recommended. Also went to happy hour the previous day to try... More

It's so hard not to LOVE a Stark's restaurant...but this one falls short by a country mile. Our first experience a few years was spot on, professional and talented service, with perfectly cooked food, last night was anything but. I know it was a Wednesday night...BUT... we were welcomed by a hostess in jeans, those horrid military boots and a... More

As I am a burger expert, (Ha!), this is by far one of the best ever. The right mix of fat to high quality beef, the best bun (I inquired, made especially for them), surrounded by fabulous fries, excellent service and a great wine selection. Service exceptional and love the bar with the leather deep seats and you can't beat... More

We went to Stark's Restaurant, which is a superb steak house near the Railroad Square area of Santa Rosa. Service is attentive. We went there for a celebration birthday dinner with family. We first enjoyed a bourbon tasting - we each ordered a bourbon listed on their extensive menu. We then had the salad course. I ordered the very tasty... More

Starks does it right. Very classy place that harkens back to the old steak houses but updated to the 21st century. Beautiful surroundings, great service. Server responded well to my one complaint.They have a bone marrow dish! Had it first time there and was disappointed. Bad choice of bones, not hardly any marrow. Next time I went I told the... More

We have been to Stark's Steakhouse several times. Always had a great dinner. This time I was a little disappointed in my steak. I ordered a USA Ribeye medium rare. I did get the ribeye it was burned on the outside and medium in the center. I did not complain.

Lunch menu is the same as the dinner menu, and that's too expensive for a lunch. Waiter got us our lunch and never showed up again.

In addition to great food, Stark's offers no corkage charge on your wine, can't beat it. The décor is very lush even if the prices aren't

Heard about Starks and since we were in town for a family reunion, took 10 people here. What a mistake. Service was terrible. Waiter was slow, inefficient and not very friendly. Appetizers were OK but nothing special. Entrees were terrible. Prime steaks were the worst I've ever had at a steakhouse. Prime steaks should be served sizzling but ours were... More
