good, not great, and expensive

We had a delightful time here with friends, but more from the company than the food and drink, although those were pretty good. Many of the reviews here seem over the top to me, since no one in our group expressed much admiration for almost anything except the cheese plate at the end. We shared... read more

We shared a meal with friends on Christmas Eve, for a Pris Fixe menu, though we have also frequented Lark on other more casual occasions and had the same experience. The new location is wonderful -- industrial chic. We enjoyed a booth and an unrushed experience. The service was personal and attuned. The food was wonderful. I have not had... More

My wife were in town visiting from the east coast and met for dinner at Lark with two local friends. I had heard of this place months before and a colleague who visited said it was phenomenal. Our reservation was for 7:30 but the table wasn't ready until closer to 7:45. No big deal, stuff happens, the place was pretty... More

Lark has great food, expensive, but creative and very tasty. I normally bring my own bottle of wine to restaurants, but Lark has a $30 corkage fee. I purchased wine off their reasonably priced and good selection wine list, but personally was disappointed that the corkage fee was almost equal to many of the wines on their list.

My wife and I went there for our 30-year anniversary and that was the right call. I made a reservation in advance and they placed me into a table with decent privacy and welcomed with a glass of champagne. The atmosphere were quiet and enjoyable so we can talk easily. The service was very good. The food was delicious and... More

Convenient Coat check, best pinot noir I've EVER had, my duck confit was crispy yummy yummy, oysters with champagne vinaigrette (divine), and you ruined my husband for any other dessert other than quince. Our table was a tiny one tucked in the corner but considering I made reservations 24 hours prior we really can't complain. Pricey oh yeah, but it... More

My husband and I visited Lark while on a trip to Seattle. The food was very good and our server helped us pick out a great wine (which I'm trying to find so I can buy!). The service was impeccable; everyone was so friendly and it seemed like all the staff work in a team to ensure everyone receives excellent... More

My husband & I went for dinner and was really surprised. Surprised that the Chef and server couldn't let us know the ingredients in the food. With a food allergy it's challenging but not impossible. This chef & server made it impossible to eat a full meal because I was relegated to a salad, Hamachi 4 tiny pieces, and mashed... More

I went to Lark on a Friday night with high hopes given the hype. It was...just good but not excellent. Service was a bit spotty, with some difficulty getting the server's attention in the beginning and hovering service at the end when it seemed they wanted us to leave to clear the table. We were given the bill twice. I... More

There were five of us who went to lark to celebrate my daughters birthday. We ordered cocktails, wine with dinner, starters, entrees and desert. Not cheap, but considering the quality and experience it was worth it. The menu is chock full of interesting options with local ingredients. We had lots of questions and the wait staff was patient and knowledgeable.... More
