Went there and sat at the bar with friends for lunch. Their chicken sandwich is really good. Great wines by the glass and very friendly service.

My husband and I really enjoy Lark Creek and have dined there several times, always coming away happy. For lunch, the go-to entree is the tortilla pancake, which is just delicious and involves high labor...always a plus to pay the bill for something you know would have taken you a LONG time to create! I started with a cocktail not... More

We have been to the Lark Creek several times. It seems to be a good (not great) dependable slightly pricy restaurant. Good place to take friends or family to enjoy each other and some good food. Service was always good and I always felt comfortable. The food is well preparred, but not very inventive.

The meatloaf was tasty and had a nice, light texture. The Paella was good (although slightly under-seasoned). Our waiter was very attentive, and recommended several nice options for wines by... More

Three of us went for lunch. No food in 40 minutes when people after us got theirs. Repeated complaints finally got service. Price high, portions small. We won't go back
