  • "Best halibut ever. Steaks better than most high end steakhouses in town"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I had never been to a steakhouse. I loved it! It was pricier than I expected, but it was worth it. My husband and I were not celebrating anything but decided we needed a night out. Our waitress was amazing and she was very thoughtful and attentive."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "There are no steaks in this town that are better. I have been to just about all the steakhouses you can go to and I have not found a better one. There are one or two that may come close but dollar for dollar I would rather eat at Larsen's. This is not my first visit and again I was not disappointed. Everything was perfect. They prepare the food just the way you want it and the service was great."

  • "there were three of us and we all ordered different steaks. surprisingly, all turned out great. my only complaint is that the Manhattan was without a cherry. when i called this to their attention for the next round, i had two cherries."

  • "A good steakhouse with friendly service. Food was very good. Booth was comfortable and exactly what I requested. Reasonable price for this quality. Ambience is classic but still fresh."

  • "We don't go out much when we do we go to the best. Well not in this case my med rare was med well. Not much flavor you should not have to put steak sause on a 55 dollar steak the sea food tower was way over priced for the few pieces you get. The Mac and cheese was the best ever I have to say. I ordered a beer that was slightly warm. "

  • "We met with long time friends and enjoyed our experience at this restaurant. Everyone from the hostess to the server was pleasant, helpful and friend. Even the manager came by to deliver our dessert! Lovely restaurant and delicious food....we go again!"

  • "Great food and great service. The waiter was unparalled with his service. The artichoke/crab dip was excellent!!!!!! The recommended blueberry cosmo was delightful."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Food was excellent and we ate in the bar area this time. Only issue was that it took an exceptional amount of time to get our main order.....so much so that we thought they forgot to put it in and told them if not ready then please cancel as we filled up on appetizers and salad. The order came shortly after that and we boxed it up and took it home. First time this has happened and hope it is not a vision of what is to come. "

    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Our waiter Russel was especially engaging and knew as much about the wine as he did about the food. Beautiful piece of peanut butter cake with a candle on top. Mission accomplished! Thanks, Larsen's."

  • "We celebrated our 35th Anniversary at Larsen's on Tuesday night. The dinner and the service could not have been better. We both had small filets (big enough to take some home) preceded by, in my wife's case, a wonderful tuna tartar and, in my case, oysters on the half shell and a tomato & burrata salad. The young woman who served us was exceptional and is a real plus for Lasrsen's. Although we live in Studio City, Larsen's in Encino has become our "go-to" restaurant for special occasions, even though we are a 10-minute drive to the wealth of restaurants in Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. Bottom line -- we will be returning to Larsen's again very soon. Mike & Debbie Murphy"

  • "Food was good, but nothing special. Drinks were weak, Salad was mediocre, steak good but way overpriced. I was not impressed."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I actually expected more for the the price. We went 2 couple and the steaks were okay and I had sea bass and that was delicious. The service was not friendly at all. Seemed like the waitress was in a hurry to serve and get us out of there! Kind of disappointing!"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Been there many times for lunch and have never been disappointed. Looking forward to having dinner at Larsons. "

  • "Overall, it was an OK experience. Nothing extraordinary. The steak was good but didn't quite meet my expectations. For these prices, I would rather go to Mastro's."

  • "Refined atmosphere - very unexpected for a restaurant over a strip mall. Live music, classy atmosphere, noise level just right. The A/C was set to way too cold. The meat is of excellent quality. One person had fish and didn't rave about it, but didn't dislike it either. The chopped salad was amazing, the crab cakes were good, however the tomato burrata salad was a disappointment: regular tomatoes from your local supermarket instead of heirloom as one would expect at a restaurant of this caliber. Sides and deserts were tasty and of generous portions; however the chocolate covered strawberries were too sugary, the chocolate should be of a deeper, darker aroma. A non pretentious restaurant with great service and food if you know what to order."

  • "The Food and the service was very good, A bit pricey however."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "The service was great from the moment we entered, we were pleasantly surprised that the food was great too! It was late when we got there yet we still received very good service. It was quiet, but I figured it was timing and didn't mind, besides it is very pretty inside."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "I really enjoyed going to this steakhouse. It's quite pricey ($250 for two with no alcohol), but worth it. I ordered the ribeye with this amazing bluecheese and scallop Bearnaise sauce, and it was outstanding. We also got the wedge salad and the mac/cheese, both of which were terrific. It might be the best steak I've ever had. My husband and I went for our anniversary, and it was a good choice. Dark and romantic, but with back-lit menus so you can see what you're ordering. The staff was terrific. I would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "My Porterhouse steak is always better than the same at Mastros or Ruth's Chris. The service is excellent. Thank you, Larsens Steakhouse."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The service was great from the waiter to the buss man. The cocktails were abundant, to the top of the glas, the wine list has a wide selection, the food was prepared and presented exceptionally. Parking is convenient, lots of privacy while dining. I have told several friends of my experience."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "I went to the Encino Branch with my wife and adult daughter. The staff seemed totally indifferent and the service was sporadic at best. For a high priced steakhouse there was little attention payed to how the steaks were cooked and the sides did not come out at the same time as the steaks. The sides also seemed pre-packaged We had to flag down waiters for drinks and were mostly ignored. The place was not that crowded yet they seemed understaffed. The bill was over 300.00 for a very inferior experience. The following week we were called asking for feedback. We explained everything your reading and was told the manager would call us. He never did. We are frequent restaurant goers and we would rate this as one of our worst experiences."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Disapointed; our first time at the Encino location (have been to Simi several times). Nice place but very loud. Priced too high for what you get; mac & cheese was just like out of a box of velveta, bacon shrimp were overcooked & hard, apple cobbler came out ice cold. Steaks were good."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This restaurant is not the equal of a Morton's or Ruth's Chris, except for the prices which were higher than either of the aforementioned places. The wine list was overpriced but, more importantly, the meat served was not up to the standards of a fine steakhouse. The rib eye had an unacceptable amount of gristle and the lamb chops lacked flavor. The only portion that was tasty was the petite filet, although it too had a problem because it was overcooked beyond the degree that was specified when the order was placed. I was not favorably impressed and, hence, would not consider ever returning."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "If you are a steak lover this is the place for you. I had the Rib-eye and the wife had the Chilean Sea bass and they were perfect. The sides are hugs so don't over order."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "We went to celebrate a late birthday/Valentine's Day with sis and her husband. Never been before, but was pleasantly surprised. Very good food, but wine is a tad on the outrageous side. We usually do a bottle that runs us around $32, at places like Fleming's and The Grill, but their Riesling and Zinfandel's were $50 and up which is really overpriced in our opinion, so two of us just had a glass. Overall, nice place and we would definitely go again, but only on special occasions."

  • "Another great night at Larsens. Food is excellent and they added Lobster mashed potatoes to the menu!"

  • "Hostess of the day 2/19 looked depressed and angry. Also should warn people that lunch closes at 2:00 pm, sometimes 1:30. Had reservations at 1:30. Traffic delayed me so had 10 minutes to order. Waiter absolutely fabulous . Give him a raise!!!!!"

  • "I had a great time at Larsen's!! The food was delicious. I had the filet mignon with fries, My boyfriend had the bone in rib eye and mashed potatoes. I also got the filet mignon pasta to go. Our waiter Simon was great, very friendly and attentive. I will definitely go back : )"

  • "After several great meals at Larsens, it was our first visit that we sat in the main dining room & not in the bar. (Missed you Derek!) The room is really lovely, and it was bustling with guests enjoying their experience. We got lucky & were given a table that seats 4 people (it was just 2 of us), so we were able to sit in a booth next to each other...our favorite! The food was great. Highlights: Heirloom and blue cheese salad, New York Steak, crab legs, french fries. All were excellent! Medium: green beans, good flavor not great. Bacon-wrapped shrimp..my hub LOVES these but they came out barely warm this time. boo. Lowlight: their caesar is not their finest work. Overall, we are so lucky to have a top tier restaurant right here in Encino."
