First night in SEattle, family dinner. Great service, extensive interesting menu. Bread (had to pay for it) was delicious. YOU MUST TRY THE SKIRT STEAK. It was amazing. Two from our party ordered it and although everyone liked their dishes, the steak was the winner by far.

The four of us went for dinner last night at Lark. All was so perfect as expected from personal recommendations. We started with a variety of oysters for appetizers along with our tasty cocktails, so delicious. Then onto our wine choice a nice chardonnay from Domaine Drouhin from Oregon. For entrees we chose the Quail, Pork Chop, Lasagna and Pasta... More

Made a reservation here after a recommendation. Had a superb wedding anniversary dinner. Great oysters, main course, desert and of course Cosmo's and Malbec. Would highly recommend.

Lark's food is pretty and well presented. Unfortunately, it is not as interesting tasting as it looks. The tuna crudo was somewhat bland, which was a common theme. Excellent house made bread and delicious lard butter. The interior space is very nice, hip and inviting. While disappointed in the dishes we had, would try it again.

This restaurant has a lovely intimate atmosphere and beautiful modern decor. Even better, it comes with excellent service, food and beverages! This is definitely a "Food Lover's" experience. The menu offered so many selections, more than usual at this level of dining; one side of the menu was marked "Bitter-Raw" (B/R), with Cocktails, Crudo & Charcuterie, and the opposite side... More

We went for a casual small plate dinner and ended up at the bar which was great. Loved the ambiance and the tender was great. Our range of small plates along with some bar nibbles made for a fun and tasteful evening.

My wife and I decided to dive at Lark while we were in Seattle for our 1 year anniversary and that ended up being an incredible decision! We narrowed down restaurants in the city through the restaurants / chefs accolades - John Sundstrom is quite a decorated chef and the menu looked very intriguing. While we ended up sitting at...

The view of over a hundred tiny lights hanging from the ceiling from the elegant oyster bar upstairs is simply wonderful. The oysters and appetizers served upstairs from several expert chefs was fun to watch but even better to eat. A terrific place for a pre-dinner drink. The real stars of the shows are the entrees - I had the... More

I have been at the Lark a few times and they always surprised us with amazing food choices and excellent service. This restaurant is located in the heard of Capitol Hill and shows a very nice ambient. I would put this restaurant into my top ten.

We had an 830 reservation Friday and were greeted by a gruff hostess when we arrived at 820 pointing out immediately that we were early and the table would be ready on time. I had simply walked in the door and given my name. We were in no hurry and happily went to the bar. There was really no need... More
