    Our family gathering of 6 enjoyed the great food--pasta, prime rib, chicken, wedge salad--for the delicious flavors and generous portions. The service was prompt and attentive, our table was ready immediately, and the décor of the restaurant and restrooms is very sophisticated. With other large groups seated near us the sound level was quite loud and conversation across the table was difficult.

    Very friendly but our server was not the best. had to ask to have dirty plates removed and to order another glass of wine. not very attentive. Ribs were good but the thai tri tip steak salad lacked flavor and the mushroom and tri tip soup lacked mushrooms. very few mushrooms for a mushroom soup. This was disappointing as we had out of town guests with us.

    Went to Larsen's to enjoy a dinner with Management and direct reports. Guest attendant was great and very attentive from the get go. The Wine list was good and the sushi appetizer was phenomenal. I had the Halibut and chips and it was quite good. But would have liked to have some type of aged vinegar to enjoy full pallet.

    Caesar salads were fairly ordinary. Her 8 oz filet was prepared to order while my 12 oz New York dry aged (44$) came out very tough. The wait-staff returned it to the kitchen and I eventually got another that was much better. All agreed that the first steak was unusually tough. Her broccoli and my asparagus sides were pretty ordinary. I'm not seeing the place quite up to other more renowned steak houses in the area. I think the prices are too high for above average quality food and service. Again, all encounters with staff were excellent, from hostess to water service to waitress and even the manager. So that part is going well. Ambience is good, not first rate, but good. Also they called us next day for our feedback!

    We have been to Larsen's many times. We have always had the same good food and good service. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. We never have to wait to be seated and are set up with drinks and bread almost as soon as we are seated. We have recommended them to numerous friends and family and will continue to do so.

    We went to Larsen's Grill to celebrate my son's graduation. The staff was very friendly and made a point of finding out who it was that had graduated and all continually congratulated him. This was our third time dining at Larsen's and like the other visits perfection! The food is amazing and the service impeccable! I highly recommend this restaurant!

    I had never been to Larsen's before but was given a $100 gift card for it, so I took my boyfriend and another couple for dinner Saturday night. Kelly was our server and she was amazing, really attentive, very knowledgeable and let us enjoy a leisurely evening without rushing us. Everyone really enjoyed their food (we brought our own wine, but their wine list is very impressive!) and shared a chocolate molten lava cake that was just decadent! The creole cream sauce on my fillet was a little too rich for me, but delicious just the same. The wedge salad was outstanding. Would we go back? Absolutely!

    Larsen's Grill has always been a good experience for us. Main courses are always done well no matter what special requests we may have, they are greeted with a smile. This place seems to take the extra time to get it just right. The only thing better than the management and staff is the desert menu.

    My wife and I dine at Larsen's about once a month. It's consistently elegant, with wonderful service. This time, I tried the new menu item, cedar plank salmon. It was fabulous! Our dining experience was enhanced by Katie's great service.Here's a couple of tips, for Larsen's. If you don't see something on the menu, ask. On my previous visit, I saw that the menu included a choice New York steak. I asked about prime, and it was available, but not on the menu. It costs more, but it's worth it. Also, if you use the gift cards from Costco, note that, if your bill is under $100, and you give $100 in gift cards, the server does not get the excess. It merely goes to the restaurant. Tips must be given separately, without the gift cards.

    Our visit to Larsen's Grill was all we expected it to be after reading the good reviews for the restaurant. We were celebrating our Son-in-Law's birthday. He was pleased to find butternut squash on the menu. We had the most delicious Ahi Tartare as an appetizer and yummy Creme Brûlée for Dessert. The Prime Filet Minion was excellent! Although my husband's was done more than he preferred the waitress was most helpful & courteous and sent it back to the chef. One of the owners came to our table to apologize and make sure the newly prepared Filet was done right. We found a wine from one of our favorite wineries on the wine list also. A very enjoyable evening and will return again for other special dinners.

    My husband and I were driving down from San Francisco to San Diego and rendezvous'd with a friend in Simi Valley. Thanks to "Open Table" I was able to find this restaurant. What a great find!! This restaurant is a real gem, known for the special way it cures its beef on the premises. So, if you like beef, this is worth driving the extra mile. Above and beyond the great food, we we're blown away by the incredible service by both the bartender and waitress who served us. They were so personal and attentive, but not underfoot. Amazing place!

    We have eaten at Larsens a few times, and have always been quite impressed by the place, on this evening, and relatively early, around 7.00pm, I ordered an Amstel Light, which is on their menu. They came back and told me that they were out, for a restaurant that charges the prices that Larsen's charges, there is no way that they should run out an item in their bar. There is a liquor store next door, go buy some.

    Larsens is in a nice setting and is well appointed. For our area, it is considered a high end restaurant. It is certainly at the higher end of the price scale. The food quality was very disappointing. Both my meal and my wife's were sub standard to put it nicely. Simi Need good restaurants. I would like to see Larsen's succeed, but without changes, I doubt it will.

    The food was very mediocre. I ordered a filet medium and it came to the table rare. I was told I should have ordered it "medium plus" which I have never had to do at any restaurant. The steak was tasteless and the garlic mashed potatoes had no flavor and were so chunky they ceased to be mashed. I have never had such a bad meal at Larsen's, it may have been because it was Father's Day, but I would not go back again on a holiday.

    This was a birthday dinner celebration. I have been here before but tonite was perfect as everything seemed to work. The drinks were perfect, the meal, specifically the meat was cooked to perfection and exactly how we expected it. Desert topped off the meal and was delicious. The whole place seemed alive, in part probably because it was the LA Kings Stanley cup playoff but the dining area was full of families and people in addition to the crowd at the bar. The whole atmosphere was just alive and happy. I've given 4 star and 5 star, this visit definitely rated a 5 star....

    Went to Larsen's to celebrate our anniversary with friends. None of us had been there before. Our wonderful experience began the moment we walked through the door. The restaurant is very attractive and has a warm ambience. The staff greeted us warmly and we felt very welcome. We were escorted to a booth as requested. Our server, Reina, greeted us in a very friendly manner. She was very knowledgeable about the wine list as well as the menu and answered all of our questions thoroughly. The food was excellent, as was the wine. The courses were served in a timely manner but not too fast so we never felt rushed, everything was paced perfectly. We all had a wonderful time and agreed that Larsen's is our new favorite restaurant.

    Priced like fine dinning but service and food do not live up to it. They offered bread to start, it never showed up also forgot my baked potato. Food was eatable but far from great. We were told the Prime rib was medium and up, medium rare would have been nice. I will never go back and would never recommend it.
