“Very enjoyable dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

This place is consistently good - this was Sunday dinner for 4 people. Jeff was the waiter and he was excellent - knowledgeable and engaging. The food was excellent - I had lamb meatballs that were spicy in a tomato based sauce and paella for an entree. The meatballs were a highlight while the paella was good but overcooked considerably. All in all a very good meal for all. Also, the wine list includes a lot of variety and has some decent values on it.

“Not a very good value for average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

We had dinner here this week and were disappointed. We had two entree salads with shrimp and chicken added. Essentially lettuce with some tired looking shrimp on top (and they added an extra $8 for the shrimp...so I expected them to be grilled prawns, what a disappointment). Overall, this is the type of food I would expect from a chain, not from Lark Creek. We'll be going elsewhere next time.

“Good Food but Great Dessert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

This is one our our "go to" restaurants in Walnut Creek. The food is always top notch. We have never experienced anything other than superb service at dinner but we have had some service quality issues at lunch or brunch. Our favorite thing on their menu is dessert - a must is the butterscotch pudding. I think it is safe to say that we almost NEVER eat dessert at any other restaurant in Walnut Creek. A perfect evening is dinner at Va de Vi, stroll a bit around downtown WC and then stop in for after dinner drinks, dessert and coffee at Lark Creek!
