Great service, and wonderful food!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMour waiter who i think isour waiter who i think is Michael is wonderful each and everytime - the food is outstanding especially the calamari which metlst in your mouth and the filet was accompanied with some great sides. always a five star experience for our family.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great. I lovedThe food was great. I loved the hot lamb sandwich with a hint of mint. It was very relaxing, we had not met for a long time, and,we were left to chat in peace, no hurrying to be served or to leave.
We shall definitely return..6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReliably good...The food is consistently good at this chic Walnut Creek setting. Wine selection offers many choices. It was quite busy on the Monday evening we visited and staff seemed a bit overwhelmed.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, but Server ....I took my family for an early Father's Day celebration; there was a group of 11 of us. We were seated in a nice enclosed "room" outside. The food, and prices were outstanding. However, the service was not. Our particular waiter made numerous assumptions about our meal and did not present the alternatives that came with our meals. He served large orders of soup instead of asking which we preferred, and an extra side dish to my 8 year old grandson. Since we were a large group and the tip was set, it was as if our waiter didn't care. At the same time, our bus boy was excellent! I spoke to the manager before leaving and she was very nice.
Be sure to be specific when you order, and ask what your dish comes with!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways greatI've been here many many times, and the food is always delicious! Highly recommend the meatloaf. Looking forward to a return visit soon for 1/2 price wine month!!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAttention to DetailWe were a party of 5 and had several requests, including serving a cake we brought to celebrate a birthday. One of our diners was unable to join us until later; we asked for some changes to the dishes - all our requests were accommodated cheerfully and expertly. The food was divine and the service was impeccable. Absolutely top of my favorite dining spots.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, as usualLark Creek is one of my favorites in Walnut Creek, mostly because it feels real and unpretentious. Good food, friendly service, good location.: everything I require. I had the Saturday special which was the Prime Rib with twice-baked potato and creamed spinach. I had not had Prime Rib in ages and this did not disappoint. My wife had the Halibut which she especially enjoyed. We started with calamari which was some of the best I've had. Dessert, however, left something to be desired. My wife had the pineapple-carrot upside down cake and I had the rum cake, both of which we dry and less than satisfying. All in all, we enjoyed the experience and will always return.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & atmosphereWe Went to Lark Creek for a casual lunch.
It was wonderful , fresh & delicious from beginning to end.
We didn't feel rushed but relaxed & attended to when needed.
Tamale pancake is always a favorite.
But this time I had the halibut & it was cooked perfectly.
Lark Creek always has a good energy & a great staff.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTastyThe best pot roast, meat loaf, prime rib, chicken and snapper ...6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat space to dine inThis is a large, very pretty restaurant and I appreciated that they spread diners out over all the sections. It gave us a lot of space around us to appreciate the ambiance and kept the noise level down. The food and service are first rate and the whole experience was lovely.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and great service!Excellent food and great service! A must if you are close to Walnut Creek5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLoud but goodThe healthy lunch was tasty and good value for the quantity of food. Restaurant was loud which made it difficult to hear the person across the table. That said, I would definitely return as want to try more of the menu items; great choices!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMteacher appreciationAs a teacher who doesn't make a lot of money, I especially appreciate Lark Creek's commitment to teachers by offering a discount during the month of May. The service was wonderful and caring, and even my vegetarian friend had options and enjoyed her meal.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLuv LarkCreek Walnut CreekIt is one of my favorite restuarants of all time. Great service, Great food. Love the people - managers - servers and Chef - always have time for a questions and making my dining experience lovely in every way. I really like LarkCreek for business meetings as the noise level is just right and seating offers good lighting if there is something to read during our lunch. Great for just celebrating and having a evening of fun and frolic. The wine list is excellent offering a wide range of choices with variant price points. The mini deserts are great if you want to try a variety. All fruits and vegies locally grown, in season and fresh. All in all I continue to be big fan..5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Lark CreekLark Creek is one of my favorites - been going there for years. Food is wonderful as is the service.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBeing vegan friendly, a fewBeing vegan friendly, a few more options should be available other than salad or veggie sandwich. Otherwise for non-vegans, the food was tasty and plentiful.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Okay LunchWe have eaten at this restaurant many times. This lunch was just okay. The pea and lettuce soup was tasty but very salty. The pasta with sun dried tomatoes, olives and tomatoes was also very salty. My husband's pappardelle on the other hand was bland. Service was friendly but slow. Just not the usual Lark Creek experience.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, Wholesome, All American FoodThere was something on the menu for everyone! It was perfect for just before the theatre. Lark Creek has been known as a place for meatloaf and mashed potatoes but I found items that were great for a diet too. We will certainly be back sooner that the last time.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Comfort FoodHad a great meal at Lark Creek. A good meal at decent pricing with wonderful choices (wood roasted half chicken, bacon wrapped meatloaf, salads, etc.). The atmosphere is bright and open. The servers are attentive but not hovering. Enjoyed the meal and the experience!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA Walnut Creek GemThis has been a consistently high quality restaurant for a number of years. We've had very good to excellent lunches and dinners here. The restaurant has a good selection of meat and seafood dishes including good old comfort food choices. Food prices are reasonable considering their high quality. Wine prices are better than at most other local restaurants. After a filling meal, half-size desserts are a good option. Behind the restaurant is a convenient city parking garage.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMReliably tastyI know someone has to sit next to the servers station in every restaurant but it doesn't add to the experience! There were times I felt like I was in their way.
Fortunately I love the food here, and the fact that they focus on a few things rather than a 20 page menu, so this seat will not stop me from returning.
We were a little early but that was no problem. Usually I go right to wine but their cocktails are clever and tasty so we always start with a cocktail here. Food as usual was very good.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMone of our local favoritesDaily specials, a couple of fixed price three course specials, and really good foot whatever you choose. The good folks remedied a service glitch (spouse and I arrived separately and were seated at different tables!) remedied quickly and with good humor. Lark Creek never disappoints.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch reviewOur reservation was for lunch, the food was simple but very tasty.

A good consistent place!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!We went to lark Creek for Mothers day dinner and had a wonderful time. Susan, our waitress was very nice and took great care of us. The manager came by our table numerous times to see how everything was and the General Manager was out on the floor visiting with customers and even serving food to tables. It is very refreshing to see the managers out on the floor. Very happy atmosphere too.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Yummy!LCWC never disappoints: the food is wonderful (and nice that many entrees can be ordered in a smaller portion) and the drinks are outstanding. It's always a treat to eat there.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways PopularLark Creek is a popular spot and I know why. It is always delicious, always fresh and always accommodating. Requests are anticipated. Tamale pancake is to die for!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite placesOne of our favorite places to dine in the east bay. We've been enjoying this restaurant for over 15 years. Food, service, ambiance are always wonderful.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPork chops and applesauce!Not a Brady Bunch bite in the whole meal! Great green salad with rutabaga, almonds, and goat cheese. Then a delicious pork chop, applesauce, and cabbage dish. Sounds boring......It was the most mouth watering, tasty, and innovative dish I have had in years! Groovy!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good choiceLark Creek has a varied menu and is always a good choice for lunch or dinner. Service is great and they never rush you no matter how busy they are.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome FoodThe food at Lark Creek is the best I have ever had! I love sitting outside under the tree lined street as well. The Petrale Sole dish with carrot puree and snowpeas was incredible! Melts in your mouth. Highly recommend this restaurant for any occassion. Excellent dinning experience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a good meal, but expectedWe had a good meal, but expected a good meal. Prime rib, sole, and steelhead. The prime rib was plentiful, not a tiny cut at all and prepared as ordered, medium rare.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe vegetarian pasta dishThe vegetarian pasta dish wasn't quite as good as the sundried tomato feta one that has been on the menu; the broth was too soupy and not savory enough. The fish dish over carrot puree with spring vegetables was surprisingly good but also very light. It was entertaining to watch the expeditor and see all the dishes pouring out of the open kitchen. It's good to see a restaurant that has been around for years but still bustling with activity on a Saturday night.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI treated my friend for herI treated my friend for her birthday before a show at the Lesher. The meal was great (steelhead, salads, strawberry rhubarb crisp). We shared the entree and it was brought out already split and plenty of food along with salads. The dessert was complimentary for my friend's birthday. The waiter was polite and helpful. So, all in all, an outstanding experience.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated a birthday andCelebrated a birthday and our waiter made it alot of fun. Glad to see the menu now gives you a choice of two sizes of entrees - was able to save room for dessert - which was free for the birthday girl! Always enjoy the food at Lark Creek - it's consistently good.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful time. IWe had a wonderful time. I highly recommend this Restaurant.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMUnable to give a higher ratingUnable to give a higher rating because it took an hour to get our food. The restaurant was very busy, but something must have happened in the kitchen for the service to take that long. This is the first time we've eaten there so I'm willing to try again sometime, but hope this was unusual.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMALWAYS a positive experienceALWAYS a positive experience from the minute you walk in!Food always correct temperature down to the warm plates and delicious. Great team work on making us feel special; a favorite for us!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have enjoyed Yankee PierWe have enjoyed Yankee Pier for years, but this is the first time we have tried Lark Creek. My salad and fish were fresh and well prepared. Delicious calamari, and butterscotch pudding - yum!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant was busy, whenThe restaurant was busy, when we arrived. None of the staff would even look at us, just kept rushing by. Service was slow. One of our party received pork chops under cooked, it took at least 10 min for us to catch the servers eye and get him to come over and have it heated thoroughly.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNice weekend lunch placeA friend and I recently had lunch at the Lark Creek Cafe in Walnut Creek. She had never been to the restaurant; I have been many times, but not often for weekend lunch. We had a lovely meal on a beautiful day. We were not hurried along and could eat at a leisurely pace.

We have enjoyed brunch, lunch and many dinners at Lark Creek. I often have their meat loaf as a favorite each visit, but I am enjoying other entrees as we visit more often.
It was unusual this week that I could not reach them by phone for my reservation and your service was a convenient solution.
