Outstanding on every level...warm welcome, comfortable seats, professional server who delivered great service. Oysters were delicious and mignonette sauce was a fine accompaniment. Our dry-aged steaks were superb

Larsen's is a lovely, quiet place. The service is very good. We shared a wedge salad. The waiter asked if we wanted it chopped, that sounded good, so we went for it. Well...it came minced into what my husband said was smaller pieces than coleslaw. I think they put it into a blender!!! Also - the dressing is totally tasteless. The salad experience was terrible. I had a filet "wet aged" and it had minimal flavor but it was, as it should be, lean. I know that marbling in meat gives it the flavor, but I have had filet with more flavor and not quite as steep a price. Cocktails on the other hand are totally amazing! Not sure what the charge was for the enormous martini I had, but it was a "wow"! The pianist is also a very nice touch. Find parking on the street or prepare to pay for parking under the building. The restaurant doesn't validate.

We are repeat customers, we like the atmosphere, piano music and service and the food. One of our favorite appetizers is the Oysters Rockefeller with bacon, spinach and their sauce. Side dishes are also very good-we like the baked potato, loaded. but again, the other sides are very good. It is enjoyable to sit and listen to music and relax. Great place for special occasions.

overrated, overpriced. If you have too much money you can go there and enjoy. Otherwise go to another steakhouse. You'll get the same but will pay much much less than here

Balla I appreciate your comments and thank you for the 4 stars considering. We do believe the product we put out is exceptional (we do occasionally overcook a steak) I have made it my quest to raise the standard of service to meet the expectation of our price tag. This is an on going challenge but I promise one I will not give up on

Great service! I had the dry aged filet and my wife had the wet aged New York strip. I loved my dry aged steak—but beware it is a strong and sweet taste. Steals were cooked to order. We shared a side of kosher mashed potatoes. I added a lobster bisque.

We shared their signature desert dish.

The food was fabulous.

Lovely lunch. Our servers were very attentive, friendly and accommodating, yet not intrusive. The French Onion Soup was a meal in itself, the large portion was excellent. The lunch menu is nice, and nice to have option to order off the dinner menu for those with larger appetites.

The Encino Larsen's is one of the best in California. The steaks are at the 95th percentile in the country (including New York and Iowa). The service at the 99th percentile. The staff is prompt, knowledgeable and attentive. The wine list is comprehensive. The ambiance is on the quiet side and just dark enough to be more private yet bright enough to read the menu. We visit no less than twice a year.

Food was good and server was great. However, the kitchen was so slow that the kids had to leave between the time the ice cream was was ordered and it arrived. Since I live close I actually brought it home. So for a nice slow dinner, this gets my highest recommendation. And besides who wants to rush through a meal this expensive.

The food was horrible. I had Chilean Sea Bass. It was fishy smelling and tasting. I took two bites and stopped eating. Horrible! The server took 50% off of the sea bass entree. But I still paid $26 for two small bites of horrible tasting sea bass. There was no explanation. They just took the plate away. We won’t be going back nor will we recommend.

I stop in at Larsen's grill in Simi Valley every two or three months. The food is consistently good for the price range. Service is always good. It's in a mall in Simi and the clientele is all over the map. Expect to see people dressed up for a nice meal seated next to people in cut off shorts and flip-flops. The bar is always packed.
