This was our first visit to Lark Creek and the online menu sounded perfect for us. My husband was happy with his meatloaf entree but my prime rib was a "comedy of errors". I explained in detail to the server how I prefer it done...pink, but not red, which is usually medium at most restaurants. I also requested brussel sprouts... More

We had another great meal at Lark Creek! The menu is excellent with lots of creative options. The tamale pancake is ordered every time we go there. The prime rib and fried chicken specials are offered once a week and are great. The cocktail menu also stands out.

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

What I got was an overpriced, noisy restaurant with an arrogant bartender, horribly, overpriced food and the slowest service ever! All the patrons were seated in one little corner with one waiter. I am aware that this establishment had only one waiter but I don't like to be... More

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.
