Usual fine selection of entrees plus featuring spring lamb…from the U.S. We had one order of lamb wrap and one of tortilla pancake. Both delicious and washed down with sauvignon blanc and craft beer. Very nice luncheon.

I was here in St Patrick's day. Are ate the bar, bartender was awesome and the food was very good. If you are in the bay area and visit Walnut Creek you can't go wrong here. Can't wait to come back.

I have walked past this restaurant for years and for some reason never stopped in. I'm mad at myself for missing some really good meals! My food was delicious, but moreover the service was incredible. He anticipated every need and went out of his way to have someone make a remedy for my upset stomach (not from their food!).

This is a restaurant that does it right: cuisine, service and atmosphere. We had dinner reservations here but also ended up eating lunch as well on the same day while walking around downtown Walnut Creek. One observation which is always a point of separation for restaurants that do it right: managerial presence and attentiveness. The quality of the food, pacing... More

Went for lunch today. Thought the menu was lacking creativity so I ordered the crab and shrimp louis. My friend ordered the tortilla pancake which she said was very good. When my salad arrived it was served on a bed of butter lettuce and consisted of one small egg, halved, some bay shrimp and shredded crab, probably snow crab. Yep,... More

This restaurant is one of my favorites. The restaurant is always serving up great good, especially the meatloaf. The bar is usually always hopping and the bartenders are astute and enjoyable. The small party rooms are quite convenient for special events. Located on bustling Locust Street with city parking lot above.

We had an excellent brunch at Lark Creek Sunday. Crab is featured on the menu. My husband had crab soup; I had crab eggs Benedict; our son had deviled eggs with crab -- all were very good. Excellent service.

I've been a fan of the Lark Creek Restaurants since Bradley Ogden--I'm a fan of his too!--opened the Lark Creek Inn in Larkspur Landing about 25 years ago. Before that I often ate his cooking at Campton Place in San Francisco. (I bought the cookbooks and imitated some of the dishes too!) Lark Creek, Walnut Creek, is a lovely place... More

Fourth time to Lark Creek for dinner. The food is good, but the waiter service has not been good all 4 times. This past time, we arrived a couple minutes before 8pm and were seated right away. the place was not busy and we were seated in the "wine room". Not cozy and a little cold. By 8:30pm we were...
