Larkin's on the River
Birthday DinnerTook my wife there for her birthday. Parking was a little tough but it was worth it. The service was top notch and the food was worth every penny. Highly recommend Larkin's on the River and we will be back.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place for Mother's Day !We had a great time here the restaurant personnel were very accommodating.We were traveling some distance to get there and were running late they were able to reschedule our reservation without a hassle. We were not rushed to complete our meal and sat an relaxed the whole time even though it was a popular day to take the family out for brunch.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat.We had great experience. The waiter was fantastic and so was the food. Highly recommend.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice treat for Mother's DayI took my mom for lunch for Mother's Day and she really enjoyed. Good food, smaller portions, and nice service. I'd go back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic FoodGreat evening with fantastic food. We had some problems with service (over an hour wait, food had cold), but everything was fixed to our satisfaction. In all fairness, it did not seem to happen to anyone but us and was fixed so well that you wouldn't have even known there was a problem. Would go back again in a minute.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful LunchWe decided to drive down from Asheville for the Fine Arts Festival downtown and looked online for a restaurant with an attractive setting, diverse menu and close to the Peace Center. The photos and menu from Larkin's on the River fortunately caught our attention. What a terrific place. Having a reservation was helpful, due to the traffic from the festival. The service by our waiter Bill was attentive and friendly. The food was exceptional. The chef's speciality of she crab soup was melt in your mouth, and chocked full of crab. The peppered and seared salmon was perfectly prepared and could not have been better. The ambiance is upscale and comfortable. It will be hard for us to get back to Greenville without returning to Larkin's.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience.Our waitperson was outstanding. She provided all the info for selecting food and wine to aid in our selections. Job well done. It was our first trip to Greenville.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Go-To Place!Larkin's is one of my go-to places when I have clients in town. I also visited for my anniversary this year and they never disappoint. The staff is very accommodating and they answer your every special request. The food is amazing. They have a wonderful wine selection and great view. Highly recommend to all I know!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe we there last Sunday, evenWe we there last Sunday, even during the horrible rain, and it was fabulous! We enjoyed every minute and every bite we had! The best!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantMy wife and I went here for her birthday celebration. The ambiance was great and the noise level was reasonable. We selected the Caesar salad and it was the best we've ever eaten. You must try this dish if you have two or more people. As a main course, we selected the Ahi tuna and Sea Bass. Both were excellent. The fish was fresh and not overcooked. The portions were generous. Unfortunately, we did not leave room for any of their desserts - an oversight we will correct on our next visit.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceThe staff was professional and courteous. The meal was exceptional and the wine list is one of the best I have seen. Thanks for a great evening.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEarly morning treatHad gluten free bread pudding that was outstanding as well as gluten free she crab soup.
All the waiters were most knowledgeable and helpful. If they weren't sure about an item
they immediately spoke to the chef. I would and will definitely go back.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMJason W. Buda, Elec EngineerMy wife and I celebrated our 17 year wedding anniversary. I wanted a nice restaurant that has great food with great ambience. We found it at Larkin's on the River! Both my wife and I ordered the three course meals and loved the She Crad Soup (Especially delicious!), Main Entree, and dessert. Was a very memorable restaurant experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first trip toThis was our first trip to Greenville. The downtown is just beautiful & Larkins was the perfect spot for Sunday Brunch with our 2 grandchildren 7 & 4. The food was delicious & we thought the Bloody Mary menu very unique. However I had noted on our Open Table reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, it was never mentioned or acknowledged which was disappointing. Not sure if they do not read the notes or did not get it. Otherwise a great experience & would definitely go back.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI very good restaurant. SteaksI very good restaurant.

The found a wine they served at their wedding that compared to California restaurant prices they thought was a great value. And a great wine too.
I've never had a bad experience at Larkins, that's why it's a favorite dining experience each and every time4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service,Great food, great service, reservation was there and had zero problems.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved our waitress.

We were seated very quickly, the wait staff was excellent the food even better. Will be back for sure.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA magical nightGenuine friendliness of the staff lead to a warm greeting and swift seating as we were whisked to our booth.
We were made comfortable with a practiced elegance born of professionalism and tender care and were introduced to our server, Mark.
Mark turned out to be a master of his craft as he seemed to anticipate every nuance of our needs. From coming to us with a beaming smile as he entertained with wit and knowledge as he served, or flying through his practiced motions in silence so as to give us that "just right" amount of privacy.
And then there was the food. Highest quality met artisan's touch as the taste, texture and even placement of the food made for extraordinary dining.
In a word: beautiful.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary? Chose Larkins.So, I decided to take my girlfriend out for our 2nd anniversary. I picked Larkins at random, and it was the right place! Our bill ran up to the price of a night at a decent hotel, but the food and the environment was more than I could have expected. We went all-out and ordered bacon wrapped scallops, she-crab soup (which rivals the best in the lowcountry), filet minion, Atlantic salmon, and chocolate torte. The food was the best you can find, and the service was polite, considerate, and also down-to-earth in a way that many high class restaurants lack. In other words, it was fancy and comfortable in all the right ways. If you don't care about price and want a memorable night, chose Larkin's.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPure class and hospitality!After trying to push back our reservation at another restaurant and being told we couldn't since their kitchen closed at 9:00, we ended up at Larkins on the River. The manager welcomed us upon our arrival. When we informed him we were waiting on others who were traveling, he made us feel comfortable and unhurried. After the rest of our party arrived, the manager and our server continued to deliver excellent service, as well as delicious food (the filet au poivre is to die for!), despite the fact that we kept them there past their closing time. They were completely gracious and willing to accommodate.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeThis is a noce place in downtown Greenville. The view by the river is nice. The food is always terrific.

The service was excellent and the small touch that the kitchen did for our dessert by writing "Happy 17th Anniversary" in chocolate on the plate was an unexpected and very nice touch to an incredible meal.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Creamed SpinachLarkins is one of our favorite restaurants and we always have been very pleased. On this occasion we were seated side by side in a banquette, and Michelle leaned in and spoke clearly, which accommodated our hearing loss. Also, Michelle was mindful of our timing for the Peace Center performance and our need to adjust portion sizes. The salad was special, and the chef made just the right difference between our request for rare and medium rare. We always order the side of creamed spinach---the best in Greenville!2/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
