First time dinner dining with friends at Lark Creek. I was hesitant to go back to this restaurant as my previous lunches we marginal; however, we gave it a try again. Our friends had NY steak which was prepared as ordered and enjoyed and meatloaf which was a healthy serving and enjoyed. The Caesars salad was very good and portioned... More

I guess when you go to a steakhouse it's a good idea to order steak. That's certainly true here where the steak is good and cooked perfectly to my order. They have all the usual appetizers and side dishes that go with that. The service is good and attentive. The people I was with raved about the chicken and that's... More

A great meal with excellent service. A higher end dining establishment in Wanut Creek's main strip. Prices are higher than the average meal out but very good. Lovely atmosphere. Must haves: whatever you want, as long as you finish off with the house fudge with coffee.

You will have a hard time getting served unless you make a reservation. They have increased their seating by using every space available inside and outside the restaurant. The wait staff was efficient and very pleasant. The best dish we had was the fried onion rings.

It was so loud we could not hear each other yelling across the table for party of 6-our ears and throats hurt at the end of the meal.... Parking is really tough, takes 20-30 min to find parking garages were full. Our table was tucked into the corner and the wait staff could not reach 2 of us. Service was... More

Three of us had dinner here midweek and the food and service were average. One of us had steelhead, one pot roast, and one meatloaf. Two of us had kale salad which was very good. The service seemed perfunctory and not sincere. I think given all the options in Walnut Creek you could do better elsewhere.

The food is delicious from the bread to the salad to the entree. I ordered the turkey dinner which was the special for Thursday and the turkey was very tender and the stuffing was just the way I like. The salad was very fresh and sweet(tomatoes). The waiter was very polite and helpful.
