Pretty good.

This place has been around a long time. The atmosphere is nice and the food is pretty good. (I would pass on the crab cakes though. Tasted like they were pulled from the freezer.) Salads are fresh as is the bread.

Highly recommend this restaurant! The food was excellent. I had the chicken with roasted pistachios and enjoyed every morsel. Makes me hungry just thinking about that dinner. Ali was an excellent server, with impeccable service. Live jazz music in the background added to the atmosphere, which was very relaxing after a long day at work. Will definitely add to my... More

We have eaten at Larkspur quite a few times and were never disappointed. This time, however, was different. My food was not hot and my chicken dish was very tough. It is rare for me to send anything back, but this time I did. They graciously exchanged it for a salmon salad, which I enjoyed. The service was great!

Have been a number of times over the last 5 summers - had not been back for two years until last night for dinner with a party of five. Service is impeccable; food is downright terrific. Great venue for anyone to have a well-prepared and well presented dinner experience. Will be back next year!

Whenever we visit old town Wichita we just have to go to Larkspur. The food is always excellent and the live music on the weekends when we are usually there is a nice change for us. The wait staff is always very pleasant and attentive. The decor is very pretty and gives it a higher end feel. Great for date... More

We recently brought 30 of our clients here for a business presentation and it was a great choice. The room was incredibly spacious and comfortable. The staff was remarkably efficient and exceptionally quiet and the food was beautifully presented and delicious. We would absolutely use this space again.

Perfect place to unwind after work for a nice dinner/drinks. One of only a few places in Wichita that actually have outdoor seating and they did an exceptional job of making that area very nice. I would recommend the fresh catch seafood option as I have had it on numerous occasions and it has yet to disappoint. Also, the salmon... More

Nothing to say about the staff. They were great and very friendly. However, the food was bad. I had the Calamari and the Cesar Salad and both did not taste good. The steak (Filet Mignon) was excellent, But was overwhelmingly subdued by the accompanying dishes. I will not go there again unless they change the chef.

Four of us had dinner at Larkspur recently. Starters: Fruit and Cheese Pate, and Caesar and Greek Salads. Main courses: Tilapia, Rocky Mountain Trout and Lamb T-bone. Good points: Nice facility with comfortable seating and plenty of easy parking. Overall the food was acceptable, with the star of the evening being the lamb (nicely prepared and seasoned, and coming with... More

We were in town for a wedding, and came to Larkspur the night we arrived. The restaurant is really nice, quite large, and the food delicious, especially the steak.
