Outstanding Atmosphere

First time we tried this restaurant and will plan to come back. We chose to eat at the bar, very pleasant, great waitress, and excellent bone-in rib-eye steak. Meal was very comparable to a high end steak place, (Morton's, Flemings, etc.) but at a lower cost.

This is a great place for happy hour, although you need to get there early to get a table. Parking is also a challenge. Happy hour drinks are generous and the food is cheap & tasty. Dinners are really good too, excellent steaks, great service.

I needed a wonderful restaurant that provided a great steak today. I went to Stark's. There was no better choice. My fiancé and I were treated so kindly from start to finish. The staff worked as a coordinated and knowledgeable team providing excellent service to go with a fantastic meal. Today, I and my fiancé were treated to the most... More

This was recommended to us by a Vivianne at Jigar Winery and did not disappoint! We sat in the bar for their happy hour menu which included tapas style food items at great prices. They have a very large bar area that was a lot of fun. Would highly recommend!

Really enjoyed dining at this restaurant. We both had the wedge salad to start and it was crisp and good. My only complaint was that the prime Ribeye was only available as a 16 oz cut...a bit more than I wanted for dinner and not quite as tender as I expected. I ordered the truffle aioli on the side, but... More

Visited this establishment whilst staying at the Hyatt Hotel in Santa Rosa. We walked from the hotel, and I agree that this restaurant is in a rough part of town. At first we wondered what the hotel had recommended! However, once inside, this place is fantastic. Perfect venue for taking clients or just for a great meal out. We wanted... More

I don't think I need to go to San Francisco for a great prime rib. Stark's took care of that. My husband's ribeye steak was absolutely delicious. He still talks about it and our friend who got a taste of it wants to come back and have it. So, we'll be coming back and try tie ribeye. The mashed potatoes... More

Unfortunately located in a surprisingly rough part of town the unattractive exterior gives the visitor no confidence. However, plunge in anyway for a sumptuous interior of leather, dark wood and books. As the name implies, vegetarians probably going to be resentful their table-mates dragged them here as the focus is squarely on the carnivores. Meats of different levels of refinement... More

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
