The service was great. The food for the most part was great. However, we got the french fries and they weren't so good. In fact, downright disappointing. Hence the 4 stars instead of 5.

Definitely one of the premier
Definitely one of the premier restaurants in Simi Valley. The staff is friendly, knowledgable on the menu items, and prove great service. Good for a romantic dinner or just a nice night out.

Outstanding food and service.
Outstanding food and service. Parmesan crusted halibut was perfect as were the filet and scallops. My previous dining experience here was disappointing which management recognized and responded by doing a truly extraordinary job in turning around. It doesn't get any better than this.

Food was outstanding, service was top-notch. Bartenders were very knowledgeable and generous with the pours. Wife and I went for lunch, we will return for dinner soon.

My husband and I have been to Larsen's Grill for dinner a number of times, by ourselves and with others, and we love going there to eat. Food and service is always superb.

Great neighborhood find
I think this is the nicest restaurant in Simi Valley. It's a pricey steak house and well worth it. My New York strip steak with the peppercorn sauce was as good as you'll find at Maestro's or Ruth Chris and it is less expensive. The menu is varied . They have fish and pasta dishes and even BBQ Tri tip and these dishes are more reasonable . My husband was hoping for prime rib but it is only offered on the weekend. He had a seafood dish instead. The dinner rolls are good, the salads are fresh and flavorful and I liked the drink menu. They offer some interesting martinis. I had a blueberry lemon drop. It was very good.
I hope this place stays around. It seems hard to keep good places open in Simi Valley. I hope to return soon!

A little noisy.
We thought the food was great and, the waitress even more wonderful.

Absolutely delicious! The best steak ever! Price is on the high side but worth it. Wine was excellent and had many choices. Kobe beef was on menu for $150.00 but they didn't have it. Not that I'd have ordered it. Service was great as well. I've been to both Valencia and Simi and both are top notch. I think the only difference was the entree at Simi came with a side but at Valencia the steak was a la carte as well as sides.

Larsen's is reliably wonderful.
Our party of 4 started with a spicy shrimp appetizer, followed by wedge salads; New York and Ribeye steaks; and chocolate cake with ice cream. What's not to love? The shrimp were intriguingly tasty; the salads were fresh and flavorful; the steaks were prime and cooked perfectly; the cake was a great ending. I eat at Larsen's about once a month and recommend it for a high end meal. Of course, it's no bargain, but, it's worth the price.

I have been going to Larsens
I have been going to Larsens Simi Valley for over 4 years and bar none the best restaurant in Simi Valley. Staff is excellent and caters to your needs and the food and drinks are always great. I have many happy hour work events at Larsens. Its spacious and the happy hour menu is great as well. :)

The salads were especially outstanding an our waitress was absolutely the best ever...anywhere, and we dine out often! Now I'm upset I can't think of her name!

Great Dinner - Somewhat Overpriced
Had a great Father's Day Dinner. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Did everything, appetizers, cocktails, entrees and desserts.
Waitress was in training. Good that a senior waitress came over and mentioned that, so we cut her extra slack. Other wait staff kept interrupting us asking if they could clear plates. Guys chill! A plate can stay on the table a few seconds.
The bill was a bit of a surprise. My husband got the steak and lobster special and was somewhat surprised to see the $73 price. Will have to be more careful next time.

One of the Best in Simi
Just fantastic, Our family has dined at Larsens since it opened several years ago and we still love it. Not only are the steaks superb, but the sides are excellent as well. You are one of the few "Chicago style chop houses" that offer my favorite Pinot Noir, La Crema Los Carneros.
The baked potato is a meal in itself. And you alway make it a special occasion whether we are there celebrating a special occasion or not. The wait staff is very attentive and professional.
Bring back the sea food salad.
Again, thanks for bringing high quality and great service to Simi. We are regulars and look forward to our next visit.

Good food but loud
I ordered the Caprese salad and the tomatoes were hard.The manager saw it and said they were green. I didn't get another salad. My husband liked the salad he got. I got the petite filet and he got the grass fed filet with mushrooms. They were both very good. The grilled asparagus was good but the mashed sweet potatoes come with a lot of marshmallows on top. We did not get our cheese rolls until our meal came and then we only got two. They said they would bring more but never did. We got the key lime pie with vanilla bean ice cream for dessert. It was very good. It looked like it was made in a cupcake tin and you got two so it was perfect to share. It was not too sweet. It was the perfect ending. We also had a nice bottle of Wine.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice night out.
Larsen's is reliably outstanding. Always having ordered a steak, I decided, this time, to try the baby back ribs. They were tender and nicely cooked, with a very nice sauce. My wife's prime rib was, as always, cooked properly and delicious. The service is wonderful. Thank you for making us have a great experience, Jen.

Always a treat to dine at Larsen's
We are frequent patrons of Larsen's Grill and always enjoy the food and the service. (We have a favorite server!!) The manager, Michael, always makes sure we're happy with our meal and service. Their happy hour is great, you can't beat the prices. I enjoyed a petite filet w/grill asperagus, my husband had a NY Strip steak w/broccolini, our son had fish & chips. the cuts of beef were tender, nicely seasoned, and delicious. We enjoyed the caprese salads first and because it was our anniversary we splurged and got two desserts, hot fudge sundae & apple pie a la mode. Scrumptous!
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated July 4th with a great bottle of wine and delicious steak, perfectly cooked. What more could you ask? We'll be back.
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took another couple out for a nice dinner last weekend and chose Larsen's due to having dined there once previously. Even though the restaurant was very busy due to a huge car show in the parking lot of the mall, the service was great and the food was top notch and delicious! Our server, Elise, gave us business cards at the end of the night and encouraged us to return to see her. She also followed up with a phone call the next day to ensure we had a great experience. This is great customer service that you don't see much of anymore. I highly recommend Larsen's!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was very enjoyable. service good. Food good. We will be back
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We discovered Larsen's last year and have eaten there many times since - for birthdays, special occasions, and just for a great dinner; we have never been disappointed. The food is fresh, well seasoned, and delicious; the steaks are cooked to perfection and the seafood is very well prepared.. The kitchen can become overwhelmed when a large party is served but the quality never suffers.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food & great service
This is our second time going to Larsen's Grill. A lot shorter drive then going to BH. Last time was for our anniversary, this time, for a birthday. It has nice selection of steaks and seafood. We all enjoyed. But the side dishes can be improve, taste and texture. My family preferred the sides at Lawry's. I guess we will make the drive to BH next time. Overall, Larsen's is good place for a good piece of steak.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service made the night
Was in for a business dinner. The first thing that I noticed was vanilla scented electric candles on the table - ugh, scented candles?!?!?! Our server was great however. She the table feel right at home. The food was generally good with desert leaving something to be desired. With that said, I'll return.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Quality food and Service
We had a great dinner and great service. Have been here several times and food and service are always excellent.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love Krista
She is a great server, aims to please. Tried their chopped salad, it was tasty and the presentation was great, shaped ina small tower!
Unfortunately steak was under cooked, otherwise bread good etc.
Unfortunately the prices have gone up, a petite filet mignon was $30 a 1 1/2 yrs ago and now $38, too pricey hard to make dining at Larsen's a weekly dining experience.
I would definitely go more often if the steak prices were more reasonable.

I was unaware that Larsen's
I was unaware that Larsen's had a grill and am so glad we found it! We dined there for my birthday and were a party of 8. They gave us a room in the back. It was nice and private. The service was excellent and the food was even better. We will definitely dine here again. And there was a plus when 2 days later the restaurant called to make sure our dinner went well and invited us to come back. Nice touch!

Our family had another terrific dinner at Larsen's, the cedar plank salmon was to die for and everyone else in our party had equally as good as food as I did, the service was attentive and not to obtrusive.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed by All
There were 5 in our group and all thoroughly enjoyed food, service , and each other. My petite filet was done to perfection as usual. My daughters shared the Blackened Tri Tip and loved it. The men tried the Baby back /tri tip combo and Chicken Marsala.
All were happy and fully satisfied. We will be back.

Best steak house in Simi Valley
I recommend you give Larsen's a try. This restaurant can compete with the best of them. They pour a great martini. They service is great and everyone is friendly. We went for my husband's birthday which I mentioned in my Open Table request. The hostess wished him happy birthday upon arrival. Our waitress brought over a signed Birthday card, nice touch, and there was a complimentary dessert. I had the small New York strip which is plenty big and it includes a choice of sides. My husband had the rib eye and loved it. We each ordered a salad, one drink and our steaks and the bill was half of what we have spent at Maestro, and my husband liked the steak at Larsens better. They even called the next day to ask about our dining experience, classy
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a good time at Larsens
Our favorite place to dine in Simi Valley! This time we had prime rib on a Friday evening with a nice glass of wine (Simi cab) to go along. They were cooked the way we like, tender and tasty. We enjoyed the caprese salad and our son loves the fish and chips. A fine dining experience with service extraordinaire from Kelly!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
When our order came out to the table, they forgot one of the sides and my son's steak came missing the special blueberry reduction sauce.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I had an amazing experience! The filet mignon and the miso seabass were amazing as was the lobster tail! Service was terrific and we didn't feel rushed. Love this place! We'll be back for sure!
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hello. We enjoy coming to Larsen's. My husband and I like to sit on the patio and listen to music at the restaurant across from the Grill, as well as people watch. While the wine list is not extensive, they do have some wines by the glass that we enjoy. And our server remembers us and makes us feel special. She knows which wines we like! Kelly has been our server several times and she is great!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Ribs EVER!!
Fast becoming our favorite restaurant! Just tried the ribs and they were so good they fell off the bone! My husband had the filet and huge crab stuffed prawns which he also loved. Service was perfect. Gonna check out happy hour next time before dinner. Bar looked like a lot of fun for Monday night football.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Many happy Returns
Have been there numerous times and will go again. Food, service, and atmosphere is always good.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server Elise, was fantastic. Best French dip around; lots of garlic!
Beautiful & tasty spicy tuna roll, and my husbands grassed steak was unbelieveable.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Can't street it enough. This place is great. The food, the service, the environment. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Kelly was amazing, being in the restaurant business and visiting from out of town I was so impressed with the quality of the food, service and ambiance I had asked her for a tour of there kitchen and she absolutely did and I was impressed how clean it was for such a busy restaurant, thank you Kelly. All 8 of us enjoyed our food very much, when we visit simi again we will definitely be back to Larsen's.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent food and service!
Filet sashimi and the tempura bacon are to die for! Love the new items on the menu! Service is always a step above! We will be back!
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Not what I'm used to
My wife and I come here at least once a year primarily for our anniversary. We've been a total of 7 times, 4 for dinner and 3 for lunch. The food is always good, drinks are excellent and the atmosphere is inviting. However on this last visit it wasn't what we've come to expect. There was nothing major just a few things that added together made for a less than 5 star dinner in our opinion. Everyone has an 'off' night but there was nothing glaring that would keep us away. The food and drink were excellent but the service could have been a little better.

Latest Dinner at Larsen's Grill
My husband and I have been to Larsen's Grill a number of times, and no matter what the meals selection is, the food is always perfect. It's my favorite place for my birthday dinner.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nicest restaurant in Simi Valley
Larsens does not disappoint . I think the menu changed a bit. I was looking for seafood and didn't see as many choices so I had the filet mignon. It was cooked as ordered. My daughter had the salmon and said it was really good. My husband enjoyed BBQ tri tip and he always loves the wedge salad. They make a good martini. The servers are all friendly and come back to check on you. The cheesy rolls are great.
We were celebrating a birthday and they bring a nice ice cream dessert on a decorated plate that we could all share. They call the next day to check if you enjoyed your experience. This is a very nice touch. I look forward to returning.

Great Dinner After Long Day
We dined at Larsen's on Wednesday night. I knew my sales team would appreciate a good meal after a long day of planning meetings and goal setting. As usual, Larsen's didn't disappoint.
Kelly was our server for the evening...and as always, she excelled at helping each of my guests settling in for an enjoyable dining experience. Her knowledge of the wine list, beer selection and specials was spot on right along with her appetizer and meal recommendations.
Our dining experience was well-paced and allowed for us to put a perfect finish on a very successful day.
I realize there are lots of outstanding dining options in the surrounding areas, but as a Simi Valley resident...it is also nice to know that one of my favorites is right here!
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
They often have a special event with Food and Wine Pairing. Very good and worth the price.
