Great service, bit pricey
Went there for a special occasion... The place is very nice, our server was outstanding!
Although the food was good, it wasn't as good as the price tag.

Great Steak, Unlikely Location
Located at the end of Santana Row, LB Steak did a number of things really well on this second visit with a colleague. It's a beautiful space, in a reserved, modern, steak house type of way. Service was friendly, attentive but informal. Starters of onion soup and the BLT wedge werent the most innovative thing we could have ordered, but they were solid and tasty.
The steaks were excellent, and I commend LB Steak on a wide range of price points for meals - you can probably get a steak dinner here with a starter for under $50. But my prime NY steak was the one you want - yum, well cooked, simply seasoned, with a traditional range of sauces on the side. Brocollini was spicy and great. Desserts disappeared rapidly. We'll be back.

Went to LB Steak for Father's Day Brunch. Loved it! Very satisfied with the service. They made sure grab a high chair for my little one! The food was prompt and delicious!

I came here for the Father's Day special, which was the prime rib. It was fantastic, as was the maple pork belly.

Over all not bad, this time.
Over all not bad. A bit expensive, but a decent meal could still be had for less. I had the aged steak. Good flavor, but a good third of it was fat. I get that most like fat for flavor, but not solid chunks and not for $47. And as the waiter stated, this does not include any sides. Other issues were with the wine. $12 for 2-3oz. This, to me, is not a glass of wine. The wife had the veggie noodles, and enjoyed it very much. She was happy that everything was fresh and flavorful. I have eaten there in the past, and have not been happy, but we will go again, but next time I will try the grass feed beef.

Dry aged meat was cooked and tasted outstanding!
Maple pork belly, egg & savory bread pudding, very tasty.
Chad Lawless with the help of his co-workers of LB Steak are great with the customers e.g. describing the food, wine and beer Sommelier type Knowledge & descriptions, attentiveness, very savvy. Chad likes his job, it's evident.
Kitchen chef(s) and staff made it happen.

Good food n ambience
Had a party of 5 + our boy. Ordered the calamari (tasty), ceaser salad and the pan-seared scallops. Our son loved all 3 appetizers. He had the Mac n cheese which was gd too. I ordered the NY ribeye - medium well, came out a little more pink than desired. My husband enjoyed his rib eye. The sides we had d sautéed mushrooms (gd), fries (ok), mashed potatoes (ok), snap peas (tasted too oily?) n spinach with cheese (gd). For dessert, we ordered d Artisan cheese which our son loved, d beignets n a chocolate/banana dessert (can't remember what it's called but v gd!) Our server was a delight which made our evening really good!

Great food and live music
My friend and i both ordered filet mignons. Done the way we ordered and were excellent! Sides were also really tasty ( mashed Yukon potatoes and asparagus). Service was very attentive; water glasses never hit the half-way mark.
Red wine and cocktail were wonderful. I had the raspberry lemon drop--beautiful presentation snd smooth taste.
Live music was lovely; Amy Dabalos and Company does an excellent job.

I took my son there for his birthday, he has been there twice and recommended it. I wasn't too sure, but was pleasantly surprised, it exceeded my expectations. Service was great, food was top notch. Would definitely go back.

Came 4 steak, stay 4 service
Our we've Stephanie was fabulously knowledgable. She recommended almost everything we ate and was awesome at checking back with us w/o stalking us.
The manager Mark was vibrant & bubbly and made us feel special.
Fried Chicken needs seasoning but the peachcobber dessert was to die for.

Great meals with a view
Located in prestigious Santana Row - this is a great place for dinner with friends. Service is super and menu will satisfy all food lovers. Nobody rushes you even on a busy Friday night.
Good food in a great place.

We had an excellent family dinner at LB. Food, service were both fantastic. Bone in fillet was perfection.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ate here for my wife's birthday. We ordered maple glazed pork belly for starters; it was cooked to perfection. We were both very satisfied. It was an excellent choice, we highly recommend it. The bread they served was tasty, fresh, and still warm. We both had ribeye for dinner, my wife had the prime ribeye and I had the dry aged ribeye. Once my wife tried my steak, she couldn't believe that it was better than her steak. I ended up giving her a portion of mine. Dry aged steak is highly recommended. I also had 1/2 lobster
tail with my steak and grilled vegetables. Overall experience was excellent. Food were all delicious and service was good!

The filet Mignon melted in my mouth! everything was delicious and the service was great.

Steak and Cocktails
LB Steak makes great conventional beef. They also serve cocktails in a great environment for business meetings and catching up with beef eating friends.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great people watching
LB has a good selection of choices but it is not overwhelming. The wines are good quality. Sitting on the outside patio is fun at Santana Row. Lots of great people watching. The service is very attentive without being pesky.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazingly great for lunch or dinner
Wonderful food. Extremely talented chef. French onion soup is spectacular-a must have! Service was top flight. Great experience.

If you and your gf want special dinner, go LB steak..
It was great dinner :)
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here. We arrived 30mins early and they were still able to seat us at what we thought was the best outside table. I wish I could remember our servers name....but he was very attentive and had a great sense of humor. We live 30+ miles away, but we will be back.

The Place for Steak
Four of us celebrating the 20th birthday of one. I had the spicy shrimp pasta. It was a small portion without much spice. The green pepper tasted a bit "off." My sweetie had the Caesar salad with chicken. It was also a small portion, but fine for him. The Porterhouse steak was huge and devoured by it's recipient (along with the side of truffle macaroni and cheese.) Both items were a big hit. The birthday girl had the ribeye and "loaded" baked potato. She was happy with both and had no leftovers. She had the peach and blackberry cobbler (complimentary for her birthday.) My sweetie and I had the chocolate meltaway with bing cherries and pistachio ice cream (which was not green!) Great dining experience overall.
8/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
Very nice meal
We've been numerous times, each visit is just fine. This time we brought our 28 year old son who wanted his steak "well done". We asked the waiter which cut she suggested and she did her best. I would have hoped for a little more knowledge on steak at a steakhouse but it worked out just fine. Frankly our son's steak was not well done in the end but I guess the chef could not bring himself to do it...

Special Family dinner
LB Steak is an amazing restaurant to bring out of town guests who want a culinary experience without getting too far out of the American comfort zone. Amazing dishes, served by a top notch wait staff. One of my favorite restaurants in San Jose.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a good meal at LB Steak Hous
Once again we had a great meal. Have gone to LB numerous times and it never disappoints.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The steak was just as good as the hype. It was typically pricey, but overall definitely worth it. I would have given it 5 stars for the service because we were always taken care of, but our waitress just had too fake of an attitude that I felt like we were watching a skit rather than being welcomed into a friendly environment.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
the first time I've been there,
the first time I've been there, I feeling warm, the table I have seat very quit, romantic, I like it, good service. I will rate number 4

After reading a few Yelp reviews, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. But to my pleasant surprise my girlfriend and I had a great time. The service was prompt, the waiter knowledgeable and attentive, and the food was absolutely fantastic. I will assuredly be back again. My one complaint is that the noise level was a tad boisterous for a Wednesday evening. That spoiled the intimate ambiance a touch, but other than that our visit was fantastic.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ate at LB Steak to celebrate a family milestone. The meal was delicious. Everyone enjoyed what they had ordered. We will definitely go back. Much more fun than Morton's in downtown!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
You rarely get seated on time (35 minutes late) but once you do, service and quality abound
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cocktails on us
Booked reservations for 7 PM on a Wednesday night and the restaurant was alive and jumping. We arrived a couple minutes late, but we were seated immediately. After waiting quite some time for anyone to pay attention to us, we were finally approached by a hostess who immediately apologized for the wait and informed us that the cocktails we ordered were on the house. After that we met our waiter as well as the manager and the rest of the night went smoothly. Our waiter was wonderful and the food was delicious. We'll definitely be dinning here again.

Excellent dry aged steak
Excellent dry aged steak and service was great. Everyone love their food in our group. Try the grass fed steak or dry aged for most flavor.

Better than expected
We haven't dined at LB Steaks in a while and we were surprised at how good the food was and that the service was fabulous.

Best steak I have had!
This is not the first time I had been here and this visit did not disappoint. The filet steak was amazing.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice food, nice service
Had a great dry aged steak, fall vegetables, and sweet potatoes with marshmellows and walnuts. All tastry and reasonably healthy. Waiter was attentive and quick while still allowing privacy.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing dinner. Wonderful
Amazing dinner. Wonderful food. Fabulous service. Extremely knowledgable and attentive manager Josh. 100% recommend. Get the bone in filet and the oysters. We will be back.

Always delicious, always perfect
Ive been going to L.B. Steakhouse for a few years now, and each time I leave very satisified.
Amazing steak selections (I've almost always got the 12oz. dry Aged Ribeye, and it's always been perfect). The sides are delicious as well, twith ruffled Mac and cheese & and multiple other potato options as well how do you go wrong).
The ambience has been the same, as well as the patrons frequenting each time. Most folks will be business dressed, suits, etc. along with the beautiful dresses for the ladies.
Drinks have always been top notch, and the noise level is somewhat high during the busy times. You don't need to shot, but you won't be able to whisper :)
L.B. Steak is a great place, very highly recommended, you will be happy you went.

Best meat in San Jose
The steak I had here at LB Steak House was the best steak I have ,ever had in my entire life. The steak was so tender and so juicy it was unbelievable. The flavors of each side of the Prime Sirloin were very different but each good in tier own ways. The marbling was perfect and the fat was so juicy and flavorful, and it was like butter in your mouth. I don't usually enjoy fat on any steak, but I can proudly say I enjoyed every bit of this 22oz sirloin. Their sides of blue cheese salad, and truffle fries were exquisite. The best blue cheese crumbles I have ever had, and the truffle fries were the best in all of Santana Row. This was by far the best meal I have ever eaten, and the best ambiance to go with our dining.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
My boyfriend and I went here for my birthday dinner and absolutely loved it. Our waiter was excellent. Well knowledgeable of the foods, great personality and very on point with our refills and needs. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
so nice to find a place for fried chicken - unexpected at a steak place. The steaks are awesome but i can never resist fried chicken.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I like the steak ,which will get 5 stars,but the side dishes didn't taste good. First, it was too oilery, second why it tasted every thing sweet, and the scallops dish tasted like diseaer. I got disappointed.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM

Wonderful service and good!!! They made us feel welcome and we loved the food.

Like always, good overall, not amazing, some VERY loud BIGvgroups near us, makes a quiet night & conversation a boy too hard.
Sommelier rec Avery nice Pinot Noir :)

Best service and food
The restaurant provides the best customer service, all waiters and servers are prompt and efficient including the female manager or supervisor who's been around and checked occasionally to secure satisfaction... not to mention the food is a phenomenon!!!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Usually excellent; prix fix menu no
We have dined here a couple of times and previously had been very happy with the quality of the food. Not so for our Thankgiving meal. We chose the turkey 4-course menu and it was uninspired. It was as if the B team in the kitchen was preparing it and the rest of the selections were being done by the regular chefs. However, the ambiance and the service remain at the excellent level and we will definitely dine here again.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
I ordered the 8oz filet and my husband had the Prime Dry Aged New York and both were good cuts flavored with a nice seasoning . Since nothing is included with the steaks, we split a Wedge Salad and ordered the Truffle Mac & Cheese and the Loaded Potato Gratin - all very tasty! Since the entrees are a la carte, this was an expensive dinner. However, we would go back for a special occasion.
