My husband made reservations through Opentable, but since the hostess seated us without even asking if we had reservations we didn't get the points. Plus our table wasn't in a good location. First disappointment. I ordered French toasts, and the waitress asked me if I wanted syrup. What?! French toasts without syrup? Of course I want syrup. When the coffee... More

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon we enjoyed lunch outside. The waiter was pleasant , yet slow to follow up. Food was decent, not outstanding. Meals touted as mushroom specials "wild and button" were pretty basic ~not a wild one to be seen.

Based on hearing good things about their San Francisco restaurant, we decided to dine here for a birthday dinner about 5 years ago (Oct. 2013 selected because that is the earliest date allowed in the Tripadvisor selection). By now it has been about 4 years since we had that dinner at Lark Creek in WC. For good reason. This restaurant... More

I recently went back to this restaurant for a business gathering. I had to wait for a couple of people who were stuck in traffic coming from the SF area, but Lark Creek hostess just let me wait at the table so I could be served drinks and snacks (bread, dips, etc.) even though the restaurant was very crowded! I... More

On a busy July 4th weekend,we planned a leasurely dinner at the Lark Creek; however we managed to be late for a reservation.

They understood that we needed to arrive at the Lesher Arts Center for the presentation of "Ella The Musical. We are... More

Had the fire roasted barbecue chicken, looked enticing as we watched them cook the chicken in the fire oven, but it was over done on one end, cooked in the middle and almost raw at the other end. Don't recommend it. My friend had the pot roast, good but a little under seasoned.

When entertaining, gathering, or getting a larger party together, Lark Creek is a good bet. Drive right to the restaurant - there's a very convenient parking garage in the same building and the first hour is complimentary. We were six people plus a toddler. This is an upscale restaurant for a toddler, but our nephew was on very good behavior... More

Family of four, we had the paella- which was slightly undercooked, the meatloaf would have been ok if it wasn't bathed in ketchup, soup was very odd, pot roast burnt. Atmosphere was nice, waitress was friendly.

Our trio had a reservation for 6:30 and it's lucky we did! They were running a 1/2 price on bottles of wine and the place was absolutely packed. Our table had 2 salmon dinners each prepared differently, both good, and the turkey special. That came with sides of mashed potatoes, yams, dressing, and cranberry sauce. I was eating healthy, but...

Our party of 4 had a grand time at the Lark Creek Restaurant in Walnut Creek, California. Our starters were martini's, Flowers Chardonnay, caprise salads and corn soup. Dinner filet of beef and halibut. Desserts were delicious peach & blueberry crisp, homemade ice cream sandwich and smores. The service was excellent and we will return. There is outside dining so...
