The bar is a fun clubby atmosphere with a great scene. Best to have dinner in bar. Separate restaurant area is staid and boring. Disappointing wine list considering it is a steak house in wine country. Food is ok. Calamari had too much garlic and salt. Main courses were cold. Service was slow at times. They do have an excellent happy hour for drinks and appetizers.

We (parents + kids 7 and 10) had a great evening.
Different menue with nice combination of very good meat/fish and a variety of vegetables, making a difference to the average US-offers. Kids menue is missing but the waiter is very accomodating and ready to arrange what is required. Very nice athmosphere and higher level service. Located not in the middle of everything still easy to find.

....which is a good thing. The bar is laid back but elegant with fabulously well designed decor, historic feel and gourmet comfort food which is quite good. Live Jazz on Fri. and Saturday make this a great spot to hit after seeing a show at 6th street playhouse. This place feels like a classic. Large, lovely, formal dining room is part of the deal separated by doors.
If I were to make one minor criticism about the food, it would be that the menu feels like a one trick pony. Everything seems to be over drenched in butter or saute oil -both cooked in, and added on in certain occasions after cooking. I really like butter, but I feel pretty heavy after eating a few bites of most of their dishes. they could do a little to provide a lighter flavor in some of their offerings. The bartenders are usually great and know what they are doing. Overall, a great find.

My family of 4 walked in without reservations and got a table right in front of the fireplace. We all had perfectly cooked steaks and outstanding sides. Treat yourself to the frozen hot chocolate at the end... super good. Everything is Ala Carte, so it is a bit pricey, but well worth it. You will not leave hungry.

You can't go wrong choosing Stark's. It would be great for any special occasion or a romantic dinner, but it's also just right for business or leisure dining. It has the atmosphere of an elegant club with a bar and several very upscale dining areas done in wood, glass, leather, white tablecloths, and candlelight. Menu features excellent steaks and seafood and wonderful bread served in a sinful garlic-buttered loaf.
