    I celebrated my birthday at Larsen's and it was wonderful. They gave me a card that everyone signed. My waiter Mark is fun he had us laughing the whole night. The atmosphere was relaxing no one tried to rush us to eat our meals, and the manager even came to see how we were enjoying our food and service.

    Everything was perfect starting with making the reservation at opentable, then at Larsen's the hostess greeted us and sat us without any wait time. The ambience was nice, the server brought a card signed by all of the staff, The filet mignon was perfect, the wine (malbec) was very good. The complimentary chocolate bundt cake for dessert for her birthday was amazing. I will definitely recommend Larsen's to all my friends.

  • Lacking Quality Cooked Steaks
    MamaFan
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    I expected Morton's or Ruth Chris quality steaks and I was very disappointed. I ordered a bone-in filet (medium) and the steak came out detached from the bone, looking like it was beat with a meat cleaver, and was burnt on the outside. It was seasoned unevenly with 1/4 - 1/2 pieces of peppercorn and delivered with béarnaise sauce that I did not even request. There was a certain quality of service lacking here that you get at other steakhouses such as Morton's, Ruth Chris, Mastro's, or others. I would rate it higher for food if I were comparing it to Applebee's, TGI Fridays, Chili's, etc ... but for the price however, I truly expected much better quality and consistency.

    We dined there on a Sunday night; celebrating a friend's 50th B-day. It was not very busy, and we got all the appropriate attentions. Eric, the Mgr, was excellent and his team was right behind him. Eric did everything to make sure that we left that night with a very, very good experience. My husband and I ordered the 28 oz rib eye, and Larsen's was more than happy to split that for us at no add'l cost. I have to say though that I was expectnig the 28 oz rib eye to be thicker cut, but it tasted wonderful regardless. My friend ordered the 8 oz filet which just fell apart in your mouth. The wine list was extensive but compared to Fleming's and Ruth's Chris, it was higher in price. Next time we will bring our own wine & pay the $25 c/f.

    Everyone that we had contact with was very attentive and helpful. The food was great except for the bread as I loved it but some guests thought it was too doughy. I felt that is common with hot bread, if they had waited until it to cool a little the texture was very good. I knew the prices prior to going there but I still went. It is tough for us seniors on a limited income, but it was a great birthday surprise for our guests. It will probably take us another 6 months to save $ to go there again, but it does give us something to look forward to.

    My wife and I had a date night for the first time since Valentine's day. We had a 20 oz NY strip and the Seared Ahi with garlic mashed potatoes and mushrooms. My steak was a little less than medium rare but due to the lack of light it was impossible to tell. I made mention that the center was not warm and that I wasn't sure. The waitress took back my steak and had them throw it on a for another minute or two. I then felt the center and it was warm but now some was medium and other parts were around medium rare. The seared ahi was something that I have gotten at the airport before on a salad. Nothing special. The highlight of the evening was the service. Our waitress gave us a complementary lava cake which was delicious.

    Likely the most expensive dining in Santa Clarita, but arguably the best. Extensive choice of large cuts of dry and wet aged meats. We had the Chateaubriand for two, split one huge baked potato and a large side of creamed spinach. I began with the best lobster bisque anywhere, with large chunks of lobster, and my wife had the arugula salad. The wine list, presented in a backlit tablet, is quite extensive. We ordered a 2009 Round Pond Cabernet (after consultation with the manager/sommelier), which was a perfect match to the melt-in-your-mouth cut of beef. We finished off with a very large slice of chocolate-peanut butter cake. The portions are so large, that we took home what became another full meal for myself on the following day!

    Husband and I went here for anniversary dinner. Server: Gary = AMAZING! He was the only reason we would ever go back. Food: such a disappointment. The french onion soup was good, very cheesy. The bread was AMAZING. When it came to the actual meal, however, we were left so disappointed. Sauteed mushrooms were over-sauteed, almost canned mushroom-like, our steaks were tasteless. I had the dry aged filet, husband had the bone in ribeye.. I couldn't even finish my steak. Gary brought us an anniversary cheesecake and it was delicious. Overall, the only thing lacking (which happens to be the most important) were the entrees.

    The staff all personally signed a birthday card for my father, which was a nice & unique touch. The lighting was beautifully dimmed, so they also offered lighted menus. Service was excellent, drinks were top notch, food was spectacular. Best steak of my life: even cooked med-well it just melted in my mouth & the flavor was exquisite considering it was only lightly seasoned. We had a party of 10, which they accommodated well but I can tell they wouldn't be able to hold several large parties at once. My 2yo went without a highchair as they do not have any (too upscale). Dining is very pricey but well worth the splurge; keep in mind the salads & sides are large enough to share. Overall it was friendly, delicious & classy without being snooty.

    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.

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.

    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.

    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 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.
