I wouldn't recommend the new inception of the tavern at lark creek inn. Food is uninspired, decor is ho hum, and it is so noisy! Skip this one.

The Lark Creek Inn is now the Lark Creek Tavern. It's more informal, with some scaled-back prices and more "hearty fare" dishes on the menu. The quality is still there, though: great ingredients, excellent preparation. Keep an eye out for their specials - some good...More

My first visit. Walking in, I loved the old-Inn feel. Sat at the bar. Unfortunately, there was a dance class (?) about to begin, so the one poor lonely bartender was SLAMMED. Once that cleared out, had a nice meal: lamb bolognese very good, and...More

I wish I had looked at the other reviews before booking this for a Mother's Day dinner. The food was mostly a miss. The signature artichoke dip was cold, and frankly inferior to the packaged stuff you can buy in any supermarket. About half of...More

The Tavern at Lark Creek represents the next chapter in the life of the historic, circa 1888 Victorian Murphy House; a Larkspur landmark. Designed to appeal to diners looking for value, fun and great ambiance, The Tavern at Lark Creek seeks to capture the more casual feel diners look for today. High-backed cherry chairs and period oak tables surround a grand Carrera marble-topped table beneath a giant skylight, providing lots of great seating options for parties both large and small in the main dining room. Oak tables fill the cozy bar, which offers artisanal cocktails and wines from our proprietary tap system. The wood oven has been renewed, along with the garden. A dramatic lighted display case in the entryway welcomes diners. Chef Aaron Wright and Culinary Director Adrian Hoffman’s menu focuses on value, while remaining true to farm-to-table sensibilities.
