We celebrate special occasions at the Lark. We have never had a bad experience. This family run restaurant is high on my list of places to have a great meal

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

We went here for sweetest day and we drove two.hours to give the Lark a try. 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

I have dined at The Lark on many occasions, usually with my husband. This is a dining experience suited for a romantic dinner or special occasion. It is rather pricey but the food is worth it. The seafood is fresh and the appetizers are excellent. We took our daughters here for a special birthday dinner and they were very impressed... More

If you have not dined at The Lark, you are missing an epicurean delight! The service is wonderful and the food is superb. The night we dined in honor of my birthday, Mr Lark was present, dressed in tux,and took us on a tour explaining how he and his wife created the villa type restaurant from the tile used throughout...

They raved about the lamb chops, but mine were undercooked. The shrimps on the appetizer plate were overcooked. The Moscato wine wasn't as good as I've had at other restaurants. The atmosphere is good, the service was fair. The place is overrated and over priced. Oh, as a Birthday gift, from the restaurant I was given a 1/4 of a... More

A true gourmet experience. This is a wonderful memory in every way a restaurant should be. The food, service and ambience could not be better.

If you are looking for the ambiance and menu from the 70's this is the place for you. Mr. Lark has the humility of Thurston Howell, III. Having been a customer more than several times, I can attest that the food is mostly prepared right. I can also attest that if you like a rare veal chop, you probably should... More
