Description: LARKS HOME KITCHEN CUISINE celebrates Oregon - its farms, orchards, creameries and wineries - offering dishes that excite and surprise with freshness and flavors. We are passionately committed to offering the most fresh & local ingredients possible. Larks celebrates Oregon's bounty by creating innovative cuisine from scratch, offering a unique dining experience. Our restaurant Executive chef, Damon Jones, is a master in showcasing opulent seasonal ingredients delivered daily from local farms, delighting visitors with the flavors of this amazing region. Larks' kitchen is full of many talented people including two Sous Chefs - Franco Console and Robert Wilson - Pastry Chef Terra Sharp, and many other 'food artists' whose creativity and attention to quality is expressed in every daily special. Dishes like steak, hearty soups, flavorful salads and grilled Northwest steelhead are the most popular. Other specialties include pork chops and apple and caramelized onion fondue. Ingredients like truffle oil, wild mushrooms, hazelnuts, pears, and marionberries layer in the Oregon flavor. Our Pastry Chef's creations depend on what is available that season and include fruit tarts, chocolate cake with housemade salted caramel ice cream, or cranberry-pumpkin bread pudding. Our beverage selection extends the theme of local and seasonal with a choice of herb-infused cocktails made with Oregon spirits, local wines, and beers. Larks' downtown Ashland, Oregon restaurant creates a connection between restaurant guests and our local farmers, ranchers, distillers, and winemakers. Come on in for a taste of local flavor.

“Excellent lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

My daughter and I shared a salad and a turkey sandwich. Both were excellent and the portions were very generous. Almost too much food.

“Lovely meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Had 2 meals here, both times were excellent. First was with a big group and the service was attentive and not obvious. Ordered the Hot and Sour Soup (nice) and then Pork Chop - it was a thick cut and evenly cooked right through. Next meal was quieter, equally attentive. This time it was the Fried Chicken and Brussel sprouts as a side - delicious.

“Great Comfort Food Upscale Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Lark's is one of our favorite restaurants for lunch is also special dinner occasions. Most of the items on the menu are prepared with organic and local ingredients if available. You have to try the southern fried chicken breast, it's delicious. Usually, they have great specials also.

“Incredible service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We ate here out of convenience as we were staying at Ashland Springs. We were pleasantly surprised by the selection, freshness of ingredients, the soup was incredible but all of those blown away by the awesome service! Highly recommend it if staying at Ashland Springs.

“Good for a Hotel Restaurant . . . not particularly fine dining.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Larks is a restaurant in the majestic and historic Ashland Springs Hotel known also as the Marc Anthony Hotel. The hotel lobby is beautiful with a bit of a Casablanca decor. Numerous taxidermied birds, a fairly impressive shell collection mostly from the Indo Pacific region, and many Audubon style bird illustrations. This decor continues into the restaurant. It is very bright and open with wicker chairs. The decor is pleasant for a hotel restaurant and very appropriate for a spring brunch. It really isn't intimate enough for what I would call fine dining.

For the most part the menu is fully ala carte. The dinner offerings were varied and diverse enough for a fine dining establishment with items such as Braised grass fed beef and duck fat potatoes, 10 oz. Ribeye on top of Garlic mashed potatoes, braised pork chop on a bed of pan roasted root vegetables, brook trout, and a few others. It is interesting that the only chicken offering was southern fried chicken breast.

I ordered a house salad and the rib eye steak. The salad was a mixed green salad with craisons and almonds with a light vinigarette. The salad was pretty good but a bit boring. The steak was prepared just as I ordered it and was very good. Steak was $32 and the salad about $8. My wife ordered Sea bass cakes which were served on a salad bed. They were quite small and reported as fair. Another at our table ordered the pork chop which looked great and was reported as very good.

The waiter was very good and professional. He did an excellent job. My compliments to the chef in as much as the presentation of all dishes was very creative and elegant.

What this restaurant lacks is an intimate setting and decor to be a fine dining experience. Due to the atmosphere I believe the restaurant is overpriced. The wine list was fairly comprehensive but a little overpriced with wine by the bottle prices approximately 2.5 times retail. Date night here will set you back approximately $135 (including a reasonable tip).
