    This was one of the best meals I've had in Santa Clarita. The filet was outstanding! The bread pudding was my second favorite part of the meal, and the service was second to none. I can't say enough good about this restaurant. They even called me the next day to see how my experience had been. I will go back again.

    It was our 42nd anniversary so we wanted to do something special. Our experience at Larsen's was perfect. Our dinners were so, so delicious. The wine list and dessert lists are a kick (they light up!) and our server was outstanding. He even had a special dessert made for us when what we wanted wasn't on the menu! Of course it was very expensive but, for this special occasion, it was well worth it.

    Great service, outstanding food! I had gotten away from the high end steakhouses sometime ago as I felt they didn't meet my expectations for the cost.. My wife and I needed a good night out and decided to try a new place. Larsens not only met but exceeded my expectations! Excellent service, outstanding food ! The GM and Somm, Richard, was extremely nice, knowledgeable and helpful. Molly, our server, was outstanding as well. We can't wait to go back

    Overall, the food and the service was great the main dinning room is to noising for fine dining. I like to eat my meals in quiet conversation. Not hearing everyone else because of the noise I only visit you fine dinning one a quarter. If the noise level was better I would come more often. Why private curtains round the booth or tables like in other fine dining establishments.

    Our waiter was fabulous. He was extremely attentive, made us laugh and just made our entire dining experience enjoyable. The food however was another story. The steaks tasted like they had no seasoning on them. Even the peppercorn sauce didn't help. My husband and I are seasoned steakhouse diners and have had some of the best in the world. This was no match compared to Cut, Steak or Delminicos just to name a few. If we ever decide to come back I it wouldn't be because of the food.

    Starters, mains and sides were absolutely fantastic. The dry-aged filet, the crab cake and the mac & cheese were standouts. Excellent wine service & knowledge. The illuminated wine list was gimmicky but very cool. On the downside, service was maybe a bit too 'attentive'. It was a nice touch for the chef to stop at the table, but by the time the fifth person in ten minutes asked "how is everything?", I was ready to tell him to go in the back and tell everyone table X is just fine, thank you, but we'd like to eat.

    Brought the wife here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Had never heard of this steakhouse before and had a fantastic time. Everyone that serviced our table was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. We went for the bacon wrapped prawns to start and we had the 20oz prime rib and double lobster dish. Sides included the macaroni with jalepenos and bacon and the ratatoullie. They provided a free chocolate bundt cake for our celebration and we ordered the bread pudding. They fry the edges of the bread and season with cinnamon (awesome). They recommended a great port to complement the desserts too. Finished the night with a 26yr old Glenlivet. Spoke at length with the Chef and apparently they are aggressively opening 2-3 more.

    Everything was great except the Steaks we ordered filet mignon and bone-in aged steak presentation was great the the taste I would say rating scale 4 out 10 the steaks needed a bit more seasoning other then that they were very tender and what we loved was the lobster mashed potato that was awesome.

    Our 12 year-old son said his meal at Larsen's was the "best he'd ever had." I'd rank it among my top 10. Our family ordered two of the prime aged filets to share among the four of us, and Larsen's cut them prior to cooking to accommodate our individual cooking preferences. Delicious! As were the perfectly seasoned green beans, and the lick-the-bowl bacon and jalapeno mac-n-cheese. Our waiter was helpful, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Overall wonderful dining experience.

    We enjoyed dinner here and found the service was great and the staff were all friendly. The champagne and cocktails were very good and we treated ourselves to the lobster mashed potatoes along with our steaks. The restaurant was busy for a Monday night but we still felt our service was attentive and friendly. Pricey but a real treat for a special night out.

    We decided to dine here for my daughter’s birthday, she was back from college. Logistically, SCV was the best choice for a steak house in the area, so we booked at Larsen’s. Service was great, very friendly staff, but the food was lackluster and expensive. Steaks were ok, but not the melt in your mouth experience you would expect from a high end steak house. All in all, I would not repeat, for the same or less you can get a much better steak in any of the better Pasadena or Los Angeles establishments.

    I'd heard that it was the best in Santa Clarita, so we tried it for our wedding anniversary. I had rib eye, my wife had filet. Since we hadn't specified the left or right side of the menu, we got the more expensive left side. Both steaks were flavorful, though mine was somewhat gristly. We each had a glass of wine, bringing our total bill to just under $200 plus tip. Although we pointed out that the printed receipt total came to more than the cost of the individual items shown, they told us that it was a mistake that the $4 charge for mushrooms was not printed. The food pricing is obscene, and it's all a la carte. So start with a $55 steak and then add $12 for mashed potatoes, broccoli, or whatever. We skipped dessert.

    For my 2nd time at Larson's, I was again impressed by the food. It was fabulous. Our waiter, Ian gave us the service I would expect from this caliber of restaurant. The only downfall I heard repeatedly from our party of 5 was how dark it was in the dining room. No one could read the menus without help from the light of the wine menu or a portable flashlight someone brought with them. I do remember that from our last visit as well and would hate to see Larson's lose clientele over that small issue.

    Overall, the experience was very good. The noise level was a bit much, but not unbearable. The noise is what kept me from rating the establishment romantic. We were seated immediately even though we arrived 20 minutes early. The service staff were extraordinary. The meal arrived in a very timely manner. The ribeye was cooked to perfection (rare). The mac and cheese (with bacon and jalapenos) was amazing. We read several negative reviews before we decided to try Larsen's out, but couldn't find any reason for negativity. A bit pricey, but to be expected for a high-end restaurant. We were very pleased.

    The food was delicious, every bite was perfect from the crab cakes and ahi tuna tartare through the bone-in ribeye, the sauteed broccolini, and the AMAZING sweet potatoes with the pecan caramel sauce, down to the terrific creme brule and a chocoholic's choice chocolate bundt cake. The service was awesome (which is really only to be expected). The only thing that wasn't perfect, was that it was kind of dark and when they set the room up for evening the lights noticably flicker.

    2 out of 3 meals were good. My grass fed filet was terrible - zero flavor. When I told my server that my steak was not any good and unlike the steak I ate the previous time, his only response was that all the steaks should be the same. Exactly my point. The server didn't seem to care that I had wasted $57 for a terrible steak. I will never go back to Larsen's. Unpredictable quality and zero concern for the customer.

    I made a reservation using OpenTable. I was by myself so I asked if I could sit in the bar so I could watch TV. The Hostess obliged but failed to mention I would lose my points if I sat there instead of the dining room. That's a cheap trick. The Blue Cheese salad dressing was so full of pepper it burned my mouth. I guess the chef has to cover up incompetence with Pepper? If I wanted a lot of pepper on my salad that's what the pepper grinder is for. Not on the level of Ruth's Chris, Morton's, or Mastro's. Not up to par

    The prices have risen; the quality of the meat does not appear to be prime; they could not cook my steak well done, so I ate after my party. Opinion rings were soggy .Wedge was very salty. It was a very hot day and we were disappointed that there were no blended drinks. The bartender told us it was because management had determined that blenders diluted and detracted from the ambiance. If Flemings, and Morton's, the Chart House and Gulfstream can do so, perhaps you should reconsider.

    My bf loves good food and good service and for his birthday I decided to bring him to Larsens. It was the perfect night. We were seated immediately upon arriving. We had menus and water right away and our waiter was very helpful with his recommendations. We had a few sides that weren't on the menu and the absolute best wine pairing with our food. At the end of the night we were brought over a birthday pastry and a very nice birthday card, compliments of the restaurant. The crab legs and bone in filet were cooked to perfection and the Yao Ming 2009 wine was exquisite.

    Saturday, June 21, 2014, my boyfriend and I had an early dinner at Larsen's steak house. It was our first time there. Larsen's open's at 5:00 pm and our reservations was made for 5:00 pm. We arrived 15 minutes early. Because we were early, they had us sit in the bar area until they were ready for guest. We waited and noticed at 5:00 pm they were seating guest so we went back and asked to be seated. I asked for a booth and the lady who was seating us said she was planning on seating us at a booth. Our waiter was Troy and he was very attentive. The Food was delicious and very rich. Over all we had a nice evening.

    Everything we ordered was delicious and top quality. The service is excellent and the noise level santa bad either. The only complaint I had was how dark the restaurant is. They used to have menus that lit up but don't any longer. The waiter had to lend us a flashlight to read the menus! It's like eating in a cave--albeit a comfortable one. If the adjust the lighting it would've been perfect.

    Went to Larsen's for Father's Day and decided to try one of their specials, the three piece (wet, dry, and kobe) steak offering. The wet piece had grissel running through the middle leaving 50% of it uneatable. The kobe piece appeared to like a quarter inch thick. The wet piece was pretty good. I've been to Morton's, I've been to Lawry's and The Cut. I know what good steak is...and this wasn't it.

    Larsen's is an upscale restaurant in Valencia where for the price, you'd expect flawless service and excellent food. They have a great happy hour and the low key lite bar with pianist does fill up with an older crowd. The dining room has a real old school feel. Our server was excellent but the restaurant was empty so you would expect it. The seafood platter was disappointing...the shucked oysters were rinsed to the point where the natural liquor (flavor) of the oysters were gone. There was rosemary as a garnish on the platter which was silly and so pungent that it overpowered the smell of the seafood. No lemon/cocktail forks were served so we had to ask our server. The steak was absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked.

    1st visit to Larsen's Steakhouse in Valencia. Outstanding selection of Scotch Whiskys, spirits, wines and beers. Our dining experience was fabulous. George, the assistant GM/Sommelier, made a recommendation of a fabulous Pinot Noir that was not only the perfect match for both my Ribeye and my wife's fish but also one of the lowest priced bottles on the menu. Nice to be recommended a true match not a way to up the bill. Everyone was professional, warm, friendly and attentive. While Larsen's is on the pricier side for Valencia, it is not out of line with any of the better restaurants around L.A. and compares favorably to all of them. Pianist was exceptional. played Jazziest interpretation of Happy Birthday that we've ever heard.

    We took another couple to celebrate their marriage. The waitress was good. It was too noisy to have any conversation. The side dishes are large but nothing great. The steaks had little "well aged flavor" and they were TOUGH! How does a steak house have tough meat? Sad, we won't be back or recommend it to others. It cost the four of us almost $300.00 for what you get at Denny's.
