“Pleasant option on Santana Row”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

This restaurant is a pretty good option if you're looking for a meal along the Row. We dined al fresco and enjoyed the warm evening in quite cleverly set up curtained booths that can be reasonably private from the street, if you want them that way. We didn't - we just watched the world go by as we enjoyed our meal.

The steaks here are very good, and the menu range is extensive. We had some confusion from the waitress about menu options advertised at the entrance not being on the main menu, so we missed out on what we actually wanted, but what we had was good.

As others have noted this is a pretty pricey restaurant, even for the area, but the service was good and the setting pleasant.

“Food is good, service continues to be slow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

We scheduled a business lunch for 9 during the week at LB. The restaurant was relatively empty - the service was very slow; they only assigned a single waiter to our table; and while he tried; the food service was slow; it took a long time to take our drink and food orders.

I've been here several times since over the past few years; while the food is ok; service continues to be spotty and slow.

“Good steaks, slightly overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

The food here was good and what I would expect for a higher end steak house. The ribeye was good quality and cooked perfectly. The sides were overpriced for their size and were alright, nothing was overwhelming. The steaks for what they were I would have expected lower prices.

“Where we go for a steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

We have tried various places in the area for a good steak and find LB to have consistently good steaks.The side of mashed potatoes I expected to be just so were very much full of flavor and I loved.They also serve a good cup of coffee.The only glitch was when we ordered dessert.Another person brought it and left.We had no silverware and tried to get someones attention.I finally flagged down another waiter.By the time we finally got spoons the ice cream had melted and dessert was cold.They apologized,replaced the dessert and took it off our bill which was very fair and kept them a steady customer.We will come back.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Went here with high expectations. We didin't have a reservation but waited patiently 110 minutes for a table. At this time we were asked if we still wanted a table - odd question when you have sat thee for nearly two hours.Waiter was friendly but took our order in bits as he rushed around. Starter of Pork Belly was OK but not very hot. Main course was barely average and definitely not good value.
Best word to describe the visit is dissappointing.
