    Have been to LB Steak numerous times, so this is not a one-off reaction. LB Steak is noticeably pricier than any other place on Santana Row, so one would expect the food to rise to a higher level. It doesn't. It isn't bad, but it doesn't justify the prices. $42 for dry-aged ribeye should get you an outstanding piece of meat, but it's pretty average -- consistently so. There are some creative menu items, but the emphasis here is on steak and on that scale it asks too much and delivers too little. Santana Row is an excellent place for pet lovers to dine with their best friends; wish this place were better.

    I have been at the SR location many times.. and for the last two time, i was not happy with it. On the last experience which i arranged for a birthday gathering, the waiter was not notified regarding the special requests. This is not very convenient.. the front manager/hostes had to be notified.. what is the meaning of even meaning of making requests in the first place.. this was not smooth experience ...

    Well beyond your usual steakhouse, this is gourmet meat presented beautifully, with a good selection of sauces from signature house to truffle butter and chimichurri. We shared the Omaha Packers Bone in Filet, 14 oz, plenty for two, especially when accompanied by perfectly plump asparagus and wild foraged mushrooms. The Caesar salad is perfectly lemony, with just the right amount of anchovy & cheese crisps. The rolls are hot and tasty, and the wine list has a decent selection of local wines, including many Pinots. The lunch menu also features fish and shellfish, and a lovely looking asparagus soup with poached oyster, caviar, brioche crouton, crème fraîche and lemon essence that we'll try next time. Chef Thomas Ricci has set a high bar.

    This was the second time I have dined at LB Steak and both times the service and the food were very good. This time the noise level was very high (might have been the day and time). It was hard to have a conversation. I will be going back to LB Steak and would recommend it to friends. The Santana Row setting is great for a stroll after your meal.

    We had a gift card and decided to go here for our anniversary. We made reservations on Open Table. It was very easy to do and I received an email confirmation right away. Initially we were seated by the waiters station. Not an ideal location. We asked to be moved outside. It was a beautiful night and our server was super attentive. The food was outstanding!! I had the prefix menu filet. Perfectly cooked! Great experience!!

    LB Steak really blew me away with how incredibly accommodating they were. While making my reservation, I asked that the corkage fee be waived in consideration of my celebrating my and my husband's birthdays. They agreed! Further, our waiter Ron was one of the best, smoothest, most amicable waiters I've ever had! He was present and attentive without being too overbearing. He responded quickly to even the most random, awkward comment and made us feel very special. The food was outstanding in its own right. Lucky for us, a special was in place for a $65 prefix menu! What a deal! And best of all, any and all leftovers were packed in paper containers (no styrofoam for this place)! Of course, I definitely plan on visiting this place again.

    My girlfriend and I had our second anniversary date at LB as this was the restaurant we ate at during our first date. We got off to a great start with cocktails, which were good but not special. We both ordered rib eye steaks, she the 12 oz. and me the 18 oz. Her steak was extremely fatty, more than you'd expect for a high quality restaurant rib eye. Her baked potato was undercooked, so she requested it be cooked a little more and continued to eat her steak. When she was nearly finished with her steak I asked our waiter about her baked potato? He then retrieved a potato, but at that point it was out of synch with the dinner. They have a decent wine list which helped. But, I don't think the value was there, $210 excluding wine and dessert.

    I took my brother out to dinner for his birthday and wanted to try out LB Steak for the first time. The "Open Table.com" reservation was effortless and a great way to save time waiting time in line. Our server Brooks, was outstanding! He was very professional, timely and personable. His suggestion on the Omaha Premium Filet was absolutely spot-on; one of the most tender, flavorful steaks we've ever had and a MUST for the carnivorous genre. Thanks and see you soon.

    We had tried LB Steak when it first opened and had a bad experience. We decided to give it another shot and were very happy with the food and drinks we received this time. The beef tartare, French soup, and salads were awesome. The cocktails and desserts were also wonderful. The only disappointment really was the steak. The beef quality is supposed to be "prime" but the steaks were rather chewy, which considering that LB Steak is a "steakhouse" we would expect that part of the meal to be spot on. Hopefully they will get this sorted out and be deserving of 5 stars next time.

    Food was poor and the service wasn't much better. I ordered a steak, medium. After three tries they couldn't come close. You would think that a high-end steak house would be able to get a simple order like that right. They offered me a free glass of wine - which didn't come for at least 20 minutes. This was my first and last time here.

    My wife and I had a wonderful anniversary dinner at LB Steak. The steaks were prepared as ordered and the service was great. We skipped appetizers so that we could focus our stomachs and attention on the steaks. Great side dishes, too (potato puree, onion rings, asparagus). Wonderful service. The restaurant is certainly pricey, but it met all of our expectations. It is a bit noisy and not a place for a quiet, romantic dinner. Don't expect to find parking at Santana Row on a Saturday night; get there early. Great restaurant!

    My favorite steak/experience is Ruth's Chris, so that was my benchmark. LB had great service, but since their steak wasn't quite as good as Ruth's, yet they charge nearly the same prices, that automatically dropped them to a 4 for me. Other than that, everything was great. Am still contemplating whether we'll be back or not.

    We have eaten here before and things have changed dramatically. How can a restaurant be out of an ingredient for a signature drink on their menu....that should have been a red flag. Then we went ahead and ordered their wedge salad which was a disappointment in that the blue cheese was hard to find and the bacon with on the side. They definitely have scaled back on their presentation. The finally straw was we both ordered the hamburger which arrived dried out like a hockey puck. It was a horrible experience. The only good thing was the waitess was very attentive, she was the only saving grace out of dining experience.

    I was almost set at going to Sundance or Alexanders (ate at their SOMA location prior but for $900 wasn't that impressed) base don reviews. After dining at 5A5 having a few nights prior anything less then amazing steak was going to fall short. Chose LB's and wasn't let down as it actually exceeded our expectations. The quality, flavor, and preparation of the beef was outstanding, so were side dishes (gratin,cream spinach) even for this steak aficionado. Even though our 48oz'r was under cooked on the NY side we split, they rectified that promptly. Staff was attentive, but not too attentive. Our waiter was great though a touch cocky on his wine knowledge. Our wine was still good but not as he described it. Would recommend this place.

    We had a wonderful experience at LB Steak House. Enjoyed our service. Steak was so yummy. Was disappointed in the spring salad. It was just a couple leaves with barely any of the goat cheese or almond slivers. For $15 you'd expect a lot more from a salad. Was told it's organically grown in Campbell. Well.....that just doesn't cut it for such a high priced salad. We mentioned it, and they took it off our bill.....so that was very good of them to take care of us. All in all, a good experience.

    We were there for a farewell party. The steaks were seasoned well and cooked perfectly. Most of us had the asparagus and mushrooms for the sides. Appetizers we shared the calamari and pork belly. Pork belly was insane! Service was attentive. We had small problem which was quickly resolved to our satisfaction. One of the service person refilled a wine glass with the wrong wine. When we brought this up to the manager, she offered to provide another 1/2 bottle at no charge.

    Had to see what a $55 steak was all about. It was a Friday night early about 7 PM, we had reservations but probably not required at this early time. We only waited 5 minutes before being seated. The decor is nice but would not call it romantic. The food presentation and taste was excellent. I ate everything on the plate, I had the aged Victoria fillet, absolutely delicious, they had a grilled whole onion and roasted garlic cloves on the plate. so good I stole the ones off my wife's plate. The service was just okay, for a $220 meal for two, I expect our drinks wine, tea and water would be filled up regularly without having to ask on multiple occasions. I would recommend for special occasions.

    I had made reservations for a party of 9 on Saturday afternoon. We got there and were seated promptly, but it took two hours for the food to arrive. Wagyu cut wasn't even Wagyu beef; they said the 12oz was a NY cut and they brought a ribeye, which looked and tasted the same as the $30 ribeye my neighbor ordered. This was garbage worse than what I would have gotten from Denny's. I asked politely if they could remake it, and ensure that it was an actual Wagyu cut; they brought me back THE SAME STEAK and said "yep, it is." I asked to see the certificate of authenticity, they said they didn't have it but they could email it to me tomorrow.
