Excellent Prime Rib

This is a very nice restaurant. Their specialty is beef, though seafood is also available. My wife and I each had the prime rib, which was excellent. And there is no corkage fee for Sonoma wines, which makes it an excellent deal.

We went on a whim after our wine tour and I have to say the service was amazing. I work in food service and I set a high standard when I go places and they are definitely 5 star worthy. The food was great and the staff if super friendly and helpful.

Big $$$$$$$ for a steak that had more fat then meat ... Chair I sat in had more lumps then under cooked bowl of Cream of Wheat ... I just don't get the hype on this place. But that is only one opinion in a sea of positive reviews I am sure .. just didn't work for me .. sorry.

We've been to Starks on two special occasions, and weren't disappointed. In fact, the portions are so generous, the service so wonderful, and we can rarely finish our food. There is a great selection of traditional steakhouse entrees and appetizers, great cocktails, both house and made to order. The first time we visited, the service was way beyond expectations. When...

For a steak house, the food is pretty much what you would expect. The steak was cooked correctly and tasted good, but not great. The bread was good, but heavy on the garlic. The prawns were ok - a little on the rubbery side. The truffle fries are always great.

My husband and I celebrated our 21st anniversary at Starks. The food was wonderful, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was great. We spent three hours at our table eating various courses. We were not rushed & we were relaxed and had a wonderful dinner. We would recommend Starks for any occasion.

Friends in the restaurant business took us to dinner here, explaining it is one of their favorite restaurants. We can see why. Good service, fun, creative appetizers, and great entrees. We tried starters that includes bone marrow with toast; ahi tartare; and their famous french fries. Don't miss the warm spinach salad served with a truffled sunny side up egg!

We dined at this restaurant two days ago. The place has been completely remodeled and is quite nice; when we entered the place it looked so nice that we all immediately expected a good meal. We were a party of 4 and had made reservations for 5:45 PM. We ordered a drink from the bar that didn't come to the... More

Alex told me about the happy hour at Stark's and she took me there, saying "That will be our dinner tonight." The happy hour menu is available in the bar area for limited hours. There are BBQ oysters and oysters on the half shell and "not-so-mini" hamburgers (1/4 lb. Prime certified angus beef fontina cheese, caramalized onions truffle aioli, house... More
