“Bit too noisy to feel like a special occassion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

We visited Larsen's Grill on Mother's Day. It was our first time, as we do not live in the area. Our meals were excellent, but pricey. I found it hard to classify this establishment as a "special occasion" place. It was so loud, we couldn't hear our companions on the other side of the table. The tables are quite close. Again, the food was very good, but the conversation that goes along with the food should be good as well. It will take another visit on a non-holiday to know if this restaurant enables patrons to hold a conversation during their meal.

“Good food, but....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

I went to this well-known steak house in April 2013. I have eaten there once before and enjoyed the food. The two martinis were good, but expensive. The two 8oz fillets were outstanding. I enjoyed a wonderful Pinot Noir from Simi Vineyards. The atmosphere is noisy and not classy. The servers were very good.

The problem is that this place is way too expensive. For 2 martinis, one glass of wine and two small steaks (one side each), the bill was over $125. I won't be back.

“Best place for a special meal in Simi Valley.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Top notch steaks are their specialty but I always get the sea bass which is fantastic. Here is a tip: ask for a seat as far away from the bar as possible because it gets really loud there with multiple TVs going and a lively crowd, making it difficult to hear your dinner companions. This is the place to go for a special occasion because it will really enhance your celebration.

“Steakhouse - pricey..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Food is really quite good, but this is a pricey steakhouse. You will end up having to spend a bit of money for a nice steak or other entree. They have a full bar, and a good selection of beer. The atmosphere is nice, and the service is good. For a romantic dinner - a good place.

“Outstanding Job for Special Event”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Held a wedding rehearsal dinner in the private room in Jan 2013. After a mix-up with the reservation that resulted in some last minute scrambling by both of us, the restaurant exceeded my expectations in every category. The waitstaff bent over backwards to meet the needs of every guest, while at the same time discretely checking with me before fulfilling any requests that would impact the budget. The wine and the food were both excellent. One of our 22 filets was somewhat overcooked, and they made it right with lightening speed. I would not hesitate for even a moment to schedule another event there.
