Sort of upscale comfort-food experience in a large, airy setting. We were there on a Friday and had made reservations. There is an adjacent parking garage that is very reasonable. Service was friendly, but the waitress tended to disappear for a while. Wide-ranging wine list. There are daily specials at dinner, but we ordered from the menu and enjoyed good... More

All I wanted was a nice restaurant with cloth tablecloth and napkins.

Lark Creek continues to serve quality, fresh food. They are known for 'comfort food' and also serve California cuisine, as evidenced by the heirloom tomato caprese salad or the polenta fries. Always hits the mark.

First, I have been here 10 times over the past 10 years and always enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere. But unless you are into being pestered every 5 minutes to buy up for another item, then this is not the place. The food is still very good, the prices are up from before, but constantly being asked to buy... More

Delicious lunch selections. Had a hard time deciding what to order. I have also eaten here for dinner and it was a very enjoyable meal for 4 family members.

The restaurant has that nice classy feel that you need to celebrate a special occasion. Great and friendly service and the food was excellent. The wine menu offers great choice, but rather on the pricey side. Overall good experience.

Thank Dirk W
