I don't feel this restaurant is overly costly...for a 5 course meal presented in the way it is and the quality of the food and service warrant the price. this is a small, intimite type restaurant that you might encounter in Europe. quiet, reserved and with a broad menu that is sure to please but all the most persnickity of...

We go to the Lark once or twice a year. Have been doing this for about 20 years. Yes, it is expensive, but reserved for that special occasion. Food is always spectacular, the service is beyond and the attention to detail has been perfected. The menu does change but they have many choices to please all! We always leave full... More

I would first like to state that the prices are very very high. However, the food is absolutely amazing possibly some of the best things I have ever eaten. The service was beyond spectacular. General atmosphere of the old home was phenomenal the owner even walks around telling you the story. Again, the food was spectacular!

After hearing about the Lark for years, my party of 6 decided to dine here for a special occasion. I cannot argue that the food was fantastic. However, several guests in my party stated it was the best meal they ever had, but I could not agree. The meal was delicious, but the best? I have dined in upscale restaurants... More

This is the way fine dining should be. A warm intimate atmosphere. Any or all of the appetizers are included. Outstanding wine selection with very knowledgeable wait and wine staff. Entrees that show just how great Chef John is. My favorite remains the Lamb Genghis Khan. Yes it is an expensive fixed price but perfect for a very special evening... More

I have been to the Lark quite a bit over the years and it has stayed constant. It is a very small place, and it is not uncommon for the owner to walk around and greet the guests. The food includes a five course meal and the waiters are friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. It is good for an... More

Our party of three was greeted by Mr. Lark at the entry. From then on, we were made to feel quite special! Especially when he donned a Crab Hat (see photo) in celebration of Halloween. As a vegetarian, I was bit concerned there would be nothing on prix fixe menu for me, but was delighted at the options. (A vegan... More

We've been go the Lark several times over the years, most recently a couple of weeks ago. I don't believe it's improved with the passage of time. These days the waiters will push hard for you to order a five course meal priced from about $80 to $90 per person without adult beverages. Those five courses comprise (1) cold appetizers... More

The hostess was very nice the restaurant was quaint, we enjoyed hearing the story of the owners from.the adjoining table's waitress. Our food was good however the service left a lot to be desired which was disappointing. The waiter made us wait before he... More
