Years ago we were big fans of Lark Creek owned restaurants, and in particular our local Walnut Creek venue. They fell out if favor after a disastrous New Years Eve dinner. We discontinued our patronage for the past ten years (paying attention restaurant owners). Last night at the conclusion of a holiday concert by our California Symphony, we decided to... More

Based on how nice the place is inside and the food prices I expected the food to be much better. I had the bacon wrapped meatloaf and it was not bad just OK. Another person in our group had the turkey dinner special and said the same thing that it was ok but not great. The best part of the... More

I had the opportunity to have dinner with a group of friends at the Lark Creek Restaurant. And we were in for a treat! Our group had a private area close to the window and it was wonderful. We could watch the people on the street in between the great conversation and food. Everyone enjoyed the drinks, appetizers and their... More

Very comfortable & cozy restaurant in a fun part of Walnut Creek. Service was superb...waitress knowledgeable and very helpful. Greeting at entrance very nice, too. Meal was very good. Onion mushroom soup yummy, but just a little sweet. Steelhead sandwich didn't have much steelhead, and the sauce overwhelmed the fish. Steelhead itself, when you could sample some without the sauce,... More

This place had great food and a very nice street side setting. The flat bread and dip they start you off with was awesome and the prices were very reasonable.

Service was very slow for a Saturday afternoon, which was something I was not expecting at such a place like this. We had the fried calamari, portobello fries and the (fried) chicken salad followed by the so called "signature burger" which I ordered medium rare. Unfortunately it came out medium-medium well side. Finished off the meal with the signature butterscotch... More

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
