“Perfect steak but skimpy salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We ordered a porterhouse steak for two and it was perfect in all respects. I cant think of any way this steak could be improved. Everything is ala carte so we also ordered Caesar salads. For $10 each we received a few leaves of Romaine with a tiny amount of extra finely grated Parmesan ( I had asked them to hold the croutons). I could have made this salad at home for about 10 cents instead of ten dollars. Our waiter was as perfect as the steak; attentive and knowledgable but not obtrusive. He even handled my special drink request even though it was not on the menu. I can't give Lark Creek 5 stars because the ambiance was not great, and being in a busy mall didn't help with the ambiance. That extremely skimpy salad is another reason for 4 stars instead of 5. But if you are a true devotee of steak, you will want to try this place.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

The food is fresh and inspiring and the service superb. I have dined here on numerous occassions and notice their servers stay. Single dining or more - you are always welcome. Their homemade lemonade is beautfiully presented and quite a treat...I try to make sure it is always on the list of places to visit.

“Beautifully satisfied our steak craving!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We were both craving a good steak and decided to try Lark Creek. We were certainly not disappointed. We appetisers of soup and pork belly got us off to a great start and the steaks were just perfect. The service was excellent too.
We were slightly hesitant to visit a chain restaurant in the Westfield but were so glad we did. We would recommend to anyone looking for a great supper at the end of a long day. Will certainly be back on our next visit to the city.

“Good burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Based in the Westfield Shopping Centre so great for tired shoppers. We tried the burgers and Anchor Steam beer both of which were excellent.

“Fantastic Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

This restaurant is tucked away in a corner of the Westfield Mall (4th floor) a few blocks from Union Square. The service was top notch and the food was excellent. How do they make mashed potatoes and french fries taste that good? The Cobb Salad was incredible! Be sure to check out this gem!
