You could not ask for more6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific Anniversary dinnerI made dinner reservations for my wife and I to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
Walking up to the host and giving my name, he greeted us with "Happy Anniversary" and seated us immediately.
We enjoyed the drinks and food very much.
As a pleasant surprise, they brought us a complimentary dessert as an anniversary treat! That was very gracious of them.
My wife and I very much recommend this restaurant for special occasions.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!Went there recently and had the Blackened Mississippi Catfish. I was surprised at how good it was! It was a very-fresh-tasting single fillet served over rice & braised greens that were also very flavorful - the greens (swiss chard?) had small bits of meat in it that made it quite delicious. My husband had the asparagus risotto, lots of good flavor and it was served with veggies almost equal to the portion of rice (50/50) Yay! The Williamette Valley bottle of pinot noir was excellent, and so was the carrot cake for dessert... tasted like it had been made that afternoon. Service can be a bit slow when things get busy, but the food I had last night was worth waiting for. Bravo Blue!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeWe are a group of teachers who came to celebrate our end of the school year. They took great care of us and we got $100 dollars off. This place was terrific to us and we will go again.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOutdoor diningWe ate lunch outside, very nice weather and a pleasant dining experience. Service was prompt and the food was great.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food on a special occasionOur family visited this restaurant for the first time for a Mother's Day brunch. The food was excellent, but the menu was slightly confusing (perhaps because it was a special day). The service was attentive and the interior decor attractive. The location on Santana Row is always an extra dining bonus, with many interesting shops to visit before or after a meal.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellenceWe couldn't have asked for better or more attentive service - and yet it was not forced or over done - it was naturally nice people happy to provide excellent service (nothing more nothing less). We were very impressed and will definitely return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSkip the salads -- they wereSkip the salads -- they were tasteless -- but the halibut was great.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice for Mothers Day Friday nightFood overall was great except for the side of asparagus. It cost $6.75 and we were served only 8 very thin spears. Seemed overly pricy for so little a serving.
Other than that, the food was excellent. Two of us had a fish (can't remember which fish), but the taste and presentation was wonderful.
We also shared tuna tartar which was great too as an appetizer.
Service was excellent as well. Almost didn't notice the serving staff at all - felt very private in an obviously open place. Very nice.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat option on Santana RowA great dinner at Lark Creek Blue - great wine list, delicious food, moderately priced for the quality. A wonderful discovery and a lovely evening. We're planning to come back in June.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA fun placeHad a great time here with friends. Staff and food were very good. Sure it would have been fun to be outside during a warmer day watching the activity at Santana Row.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCame here for the Lobster SpaghettiEvery time I crave for Lobster Spaghetti, I go here. But this time, we were celebrating my hubby's birthday dinner. I had the Lobster Spaghetti while he ordered Steak! We were Surfing and Turfing separately. We also ordered their Ceasar Salad and the dressing was amazing! I also recommend their organic teas to cap the night. I had the Organic Assam Black Indian Tea. Very flavorful!
We even got a complimentary birthday dessert. Awesome!
We love the food, the unpretentious ambiance and excellent service! The birthday boy agreed. Am so happy!
Lark Creek Blue is one of my fave dining spots at Santana Row. Lobster Spaghetti rules!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the fish and chips. VeryHad the fish and chips. Very good...great batter and the fries were good as well. My wife had the shrimp salad. Excellent with a great homemade 1000 island dressing. We sat outside on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Well done!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food & ServiceThis was my third time dining at Lark Creek! they have great food and great service! I love their carrot cake, the keeper appetizers is good! One of my favorite is their Ceasar Salad! Very simple and the dressing is perfect. The Ahi Tuna Steak is the bomb! It melts in your mouth.
I love this restaurant.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLark Creek Blue wins me overHad a business lunch there and really enjoyed the staff and the atmosphere. Great food made it perfect. Good lunch specials with adjustments made to the menu to accommodate diet restrictions. We ate inside because of the cold, but if the weather permits next visit we'll dine outside in the lovely patio area. Overall a great experience, I'll definitely be back!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there with 2 other people.Went there with 2 other people. We shared a dozen Kumimoto oysters and the tuna tartare. It was yummy! The food we ordered was the ahi tuna steak, stealhead fish and the 12 oz new york strip. I really enjoyed the ahi tuna steak dinner. The steak was good, but nothing special really set it aside from other steakhouses. I wasn't able to try to Stealhead fish. Our server was great. When we were seated, we waited awhile (over 20 minutes) until someone came over to greet us and provide us with menus. However, once we met our server, he was worth the wait. Funny, delightful & gave good food recommendations.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAbove expectations, except EspressoWe enjoyed ourselves and particularly our waitress. The hostess was a bit officious for our taste, and seemed to be in a bit of a snit. Our food was very good (fresh seafood!), nearly outstanding. Service was great. They do not understand the concept of a restretto espresso at Lark Creek Blue, and this is perhaps a small point, but not for us. Otherwise this place exceeded expectations. We are big fans of the Lark Creek Group, including One Market.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our dinner at LarkWe enjoyed our dinner at Lark Creek Blue very much. We were seated immediately, and our waiter provided very good service the whole evening. Since it was our first time, our waiter gave us many good recommendations on the menu. We had the Dungeness crab cake appetizer, the Maine lobster spaghetti and the petrale sole with sauteed spinach and shoestring potatoes. Everything was prepared well and delicious. We finished with a tasty apple/pear crisp. The atmosphere was energetic at 7pm on a Friday night, but we did not feel rushed. Between the menu choices and adult diners (lots of couples), it wouldn't be somewhere I'd take my 7 year old. But, that was the point of date night...3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Food and ServiceOur experience at Lark Creek Blue, Santana Row, formally Yankee Pier was very excellent, which is more than excellent. Out table was ready when we arrived and we had prompt wait service. The seafood dish was amazing, and the flatiron steak was cooked to perfection. Our guests thought the prime rib was very tender with great flavor. The special cocktails were interesting and refreshing and the bottle of Morgan Pinot Noir was delicious.
With all of the good food and drink the service was the star. Our server that evening was Ken and he was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Our food came to all of us at the same moment and the chef came to our table as well. On a busy Saturday evening we couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommende3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a re-packaging ofThis is a re-packaging of Yankee Pier. It's still a Bradley Ogden restaurant, but they've expanded the menu to incorporate a variety of steaks. They carried over much of the original seafood items, including the fresh oyster bar, New England clams, and the option to pan-fry your selected fish with healthy sides. And yes, they still offer the butterscotch pudding for dessert.
If you liked Yankee Pier, you'll like Lark Creek Blue... and if you wanted red meat, they've now got you covered as well. I absolutely recommend.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat outdoor dining.We sat outside on a nice day. Got seated and had a mix up of who was taking care of our table wit the servers. Took about 10 minutes to take the order.
ONce we got our food however....all was forgotton. They also picked up the tab for our drinks...nice gesture. My wife had the shrimp and crab salad and she loved it. great presentation....and lots of fresh crab and shrimp. I had the roast beef sandwich with fries. Great! Fries were fantastic, great bbq sauce on the sandwich!
Great job, and we will return.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is good, but itThis place is good, but it still has a long way to go. The steak was just okay and the menu prices suggest food could be better. We loved the service, the decor and we believe this place has promise.2/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI made a reservation hereI made a reservation here for Valentine's Day and was surprised to be accommodated with the best seats in the house. The staff did a wonderful job of setting things up the way I had asked. We were sat in the only booth in the restaurant with cushy seats and a beautiful chandelier.
The service was very attentive to the point that they did interrupt the atmosphere on occasion. If the only issue at a restaurant is overly attentive service, you're doing something right in my book.2/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOk but not great.Overall I was under impressed. Out of the dish of the day early in the day. I was given a lunch menu for dinner. It was noisy. The bright spot was the service, she was great.
Not sure that with all the choices in Santana row I would return b12/1/2012 12:00:00 AM
