“Best meat in the valley...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We enjoyed a perfect match of beef and wine here in a great atmosphere. My wife had an american kobe filet with truffeld fries and I went for the whole thing, a 30 days dried aged chunk of beef, that was way above to call that a steak! Washed away the whole thing with a 1994 Reserve Cabernet from Robert Mondavi (corkage fee was very low!), this was certainly a night to remember. If you enter the "Bar", at the first look you wouldn't think, there is such a great place hiding behind the walls, but go check it out, it's woth it!!

“Happy Anniversary to us!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I called more than a week ahead to make reservations and told them it was our 24th anniversary. They mentioned it when we arrived andseated us at a quiet table, then the manager came over and poured complimentary sparkling wine and congratulated us. The food (filet and steakhouse salad) and service were excellent, and we spent the rest of our trip recommending Stark's to everyone we met! Also the only restaurant we found in Santa Rosa that offers free corkage - YEA for them!!!

“Good Food, Very Nice Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Starks is an upscale steak restaurant. They have a great happy hour and they have invested heavily in the renovation of the restaurant. While you can't eat atmosphere, it has a very classy, yet cozy atmosphere and the service has been very good. The prices are at the high end, but the quality is generally there too. Nice place for a special occasion.

“Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We didn't have reservations, so ended up eating dinner in the lounge, which was very noisy. My meal (filet and shrimp) was excellent; my husband had the lobster, which was okay, but far from the best he's eaten. Everything was quite pricey -- not a place we'd ever go on a regular basis.

“The Best.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

On my daughter's recommendation we ate here after wine tasting. The steaks were perfect, and the sides were enticing, as was their special dill butter crusty bread. Great flavors and seasonings. The staff kept stopping by to check on us - not intrusively but very genuinely. Wish we could go again! Expect "steakhouse" pricing; but we'd stopped by the nearby casino and that more than paid for our dinner!
