Great place for a romantic dinner

Stark's is a wonderful place to have a special dinner or anytime you want to go out. Mention you are having an anniversary or special occasion and they will give you a great table. Food and staff are very good.

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

First of all...be ready to pay. You won't be disappointed. At first glance, the prices don't look too bad, until you find that it is a la carte. Steaks and seafood entrees are around $25-$40. Sides are $5-$10 (however, these are large enough to share) We had 6 women in our party and we ordered 2 starters, no alcohol, 4... More

Stark's is not located in the best part of town. However, once inside, it is a large, very nice restaurant. service was excellent and the food was very good. An added plus, there is no corkage fee for the first 2 bottles of wine. that is unheard of in a restaurant of this quality.

I have been here once before several years ago. I have heard from many of my friends that the Happy Hour is a great way to taste the menu and have drinks at slightly lower prices. I made the reservation thru OpenTable which is a breeze to use. Our dinner was at 6pm. Our party was going to sit at... More

This place is pricey, but the steaks and all the sides are delicious. The ambiance is great, too. It always surprises me how crowded it is because of the $$ so it must be the quality of the food. We've never had a bad meal and have come here for special occasions since it opened. Full bar. Reservations are probably... More

The food was good. We did not see lamb on the menu. They do not charge a corkage fee for the first two bottles of wine you bring.

We came here for a celebrations dinner and shared the aged Porterhouse for two, with blue cheese and truffle aioli. We had truffle fries and sautéed veggies on the side, and french toast brandied cherry foie gras to start (WOW!). Al the food was AMAZING but the service was even more amazing. It is truly a team effort. Our server... More

My family has enjoyed some delicious steak dinners at Stark's, and the accompanying side dishes are very tasty butter-drizzled bread is so good!). I only wish they had a simple mixed greens salad available, as well as the other salad options. The dining room has a dark and cozy feel with a fireplace and quiet atmosphere... very good for a...

Ate at Starks on 14th June 2015, the decor was modern and includes enclosed fireplaces which enhance the atmosphere. Staff were attentive and welcoming We ordered ribeye prime steaks on the bone as no prime rib was available even though it was only 7pm. The steak heavily seasoned and expensive as were the sides, we chose not to have a... More
