We dined here for a special occasion as a party of 4, and we really loved the experience! The food was beautifully prepared and it was delicious! The service was warm and very professional. We have eaten at other Lark Creek concepts before and they have never disappointed. We enjoyed the evening so much, we will plan to return on... More

I love the meat loaf but their fish is also outstanding. The service is great and the food is hot and filling.

Lark Creek is one of the best restaurants in the east bay. They are consistent in quality and preparation. They use the freshest ingredients and their service is always spot on.

Haven't been here in fifteen years. Wonderful to say that upon my return it was a good as ever. The menu still changes according to the season, the food is still top rate. More expensive than many other restaurants on Main Street but worth every penny!

A great addition to Walnut Creek restaurant week. Brunch was very good. The Berry Muffins made the breakfast meal complete. Service was fantastic, Servers and helpers were dressed clean and sharp, rarely a "wayword" crumb got by them. The surrounding galss windows let in the perfect amount of sunshine to enjoy our meal!

This is one of our favorite places for lunch, happy hour and after movie dinners. I can't rave enough about the tamale pancakes -- divine. Also, no visit is complete without the signature butterscotch pudding. The wait staff greets you as if you are a long-lost friend -- gotta love that! The changing menu reflects the seasonal, local ingredients. Any... More

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.
