Lark Creek Walnut Creek
Reliably 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 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 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!

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.

This was our first time at the Walnut Creek restaurant and we were thoroughly pleased. We will return. Our food was excellent, our waiter, Daniel, was most hospitable and kept us smiling all evening. I must say the Cucumber Refresher was one of the best non-alcoholic drinks I have had, it went so well with my dinner, and my husband is still talking about his pork chop. Thanks for a great evening.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had out of town guestsWe had out of town guests for a late lunch and spent two hours with them over great food and wine.

The waiter was friendly and accommodated a few dietary needs to our order. The food was very good and we enjoyed the bruch. The restaurant can get congested & noisy but the front alcove with heat lamps was perfect for us. We were able to enjoy our conversation easily.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service was good.The food and service was good. The waiter missed on our drink orders he attended other tables maybe they were too busy or lacked enough help during the time we were there. I have always seen this place to be very busy for lunch on weekends so I hoped for better service. It was a bit pricey on the days menu. Surprised the atmosphere was so basic nothing special..3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Easter BrunchThis was our 1st time at Lark Creek Walnut Creek. We went for the Easter Brunch and we were not disappointed. The Eggs Benedict was delicious and prepared with sourdough bread which added a nice touch instead of the typical English muffin.

Food and service was good, although it was a little slow due to the Easter crowd that was there. Restaurant was very busy and seemed to handle the volume.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVery overpriced for what youVery overpriced for what you get. Everything is ala carte & even the wines by the glass are very pricey. If you have lots of $ to spend, no worries, but it's a little noisy as well, so if you're looking at a nice quiet dinner, it's not the place.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it. Large place withLoved it.
