We live out of town but have been here at least a half dozen times when in the area - often with family or friends. Great steak and always good service. We will be back!
We were disappointed with our dinner on Easter Day. We had an early dinner with the restaurant seating just a few people. The waiters were very noisy chatting up a few customers. I can only imaging the noise level if the dining room were to be full. The food was good, nicely presented but we were expecting a more exciting dinner. We'll not reurn.
Very disappointing experience with my family there celebrating Easter Brunch. We only went because Left Bank was full and tried their branded steakhouse. It started with slow service (it took seemingly 30+ minutes between when we ordered and when we got our entrees, with the wait staff doing little to check on us or even inform us the status. Then the two in the group who ordered medium steaks were presented with rare, unseasoned, flavorless offerings. The management tried to apologize by sending mimosas and then dessert, so I give them credit for that. But it seemed an issue with the kitchen since their signature steaks were so bad.
Loved Easter brunch at LB Steak. Service was friendly and quick. The food was amazing. Would make this an annual tradition!
Told the server "no pepper" three times, yet the meal came covered in pepper. And all the drinks were watered down.
Completely RUDE experience. I've been to LB Steak several times before, and usually had a good time, but not this time. First off, I know it was late Monday evening, but if it's too late and you want to close then: 1). Don't offer reservations for 8:30, 8:45, and 9:00pm; 2). if you want to close early, just call me and say you're already closed, and cancel my reservation; 3). don't greet us warmly when we arrive only to tell us right after sitting down and handing us our menus that the kitchen is closing in two minutes so we need to order now, and ask us if we know what we want; and then 4). come during the meal to ask us if we wanted to order dessert, as if we're going to want melting dessert on the table while we're eating our meal. Once the initial waiter said we had two minutes to decide what we wanted because the kitchen was closing, we never saw him again, and the bartender took over. Plus, they were out of two items that we attempted to order, so that also didn't help make the experience better (how can a steak restaurant be out of certain steaks? Perhaps it would have taken too long to cook, so they couldn't be bothered). I completely understand not wanting to stay open for only a few customers, but then be honest and don't offer reservations at those times, or call me to say that you're closing early before we arrive, or even tell us that the kitchen was closed when we arrived. I've had a restaurant call me and tell me that they cannot uphold the reservation because the restaurant had already closed. I wish they had been honest and up-front about the situation, and we would have made alternate plans. There are too many other restaurants around where we wouldn't be hustled through dinner. And for the prices we paid, the food should have been excellent, and it has been in the past. This time, the meat was overcooked and dry, there was no sauce (I had to walk up to the bar to ask for some), and the fries were covered in too much salt - inedible. Disappointing.
For some reason, I expected an uninspired steakhouse (Sundance, Alfred's), but was pleasantly surprises--several fish items, including the salmon salad, which I had and loved. My dining companion had the burger, which she loved. This place is full of surprises and I found all kinds of other things I could have ordered on the menu.
Very lovely restaurant with delicious food and wonderful service,!
Great place, Great food, nice atmosphere!!
Recommended to everyone.
Never had a bad meal here!!! Bring people here from out of town
Its great to have a good local restaurant where we can bike to.
The restaurant was busy and had a good ambiance.
The food is good quality. Overall a very pleasant experience.
The food was excellent. The Wait staff were very professional, accomadating, and kind. The best service I can remember ever having !!!!
We had roasted chicken which was mediocre- dry and tasteless. On the upside, the cauliflower veggies were good. Popovers were cold and undercooked. Service was fair. LB Steak: surely for the price point you can do better than this.
I've been to LB Steak many times and always enjoyed my visits. This time, I had the prime rib special which I considered to be a very good value. The meal consisted of a nice salad, a generous portion of prime rib with a baked potato and ice cream or sorbet for dessert, all for $37. I enjoyed the entire meal and my server, Anna, was charming, competent and attentive. I only have two suggestions: (1) At the beginning of the meal, a person came around with popovers. Unfortunately, my popover was cold. It should have been hot. I didn't say anything, but the people at the next table did tell their waiter that it should be served hot. (2) The meal came with charred asparagus. In my opinion, it should have been steamed. Charred veggies look like they've been burned and, in my opinion, don't taste very good. Aside from these issues, I loved the meal. I certainly plan on returning.
Too bad we had to wait outside in the cold to be seated during 5 to 10 minutes,even though we had a reservation. Everything was good, no more. Nice gesture : the dessert was free for the birthday boy.
We are used to LB on Santana Row in San Jose and unfortunately this did not meet that standard. They have some work to do.
The food here is mostly good, but none of it stands out. The gnocchi were relatively bland. The calamari were dry and seemed to consist of, or tasted like, mostly onion rings. Service was fast and courteous. The restaurant was very noisy that evening because of a business event, but it's been quieter at other times.
I WENT TO THE lB STEAKHOUSE FOR DINNER ON MY BIRTHDAY. ALTHOUGH i WAS PLANNING ON ORDERING A STEAK, AT THE SUGGESTION OF THE WAITRESS, i ORDERED THE PRIME RIB, INSTEAD. SHE SAID THE PRIME RIB IS A BETTER VALUE SINCE IT INCLUDES A POTATO AND VEGETABLE. ALTHOUGH I ORDERED IT MEDIUM WELL, IT WAS GIVEN TO ME MEDIUM RARE. THE MANAGER COMPENSATED FOR THIS PROBLEM BY GIVING ME A GENEROUS GIFT CERTIFICATE FOR FUTURE DINING. ALL IN ALL, MY EXPERIENCE, WHILE NOT PERFECT, WAS VERY SATISFACTORY.
Was a lovely dinner! My burger and fries were excellent! I will be back!
It was a mixed experience for us. The drinks were good, but took a while to arrive. The crab/shrimp cobb salad was excellent, and the beet salad with Humbolt Fog cheese was also quite good. The steaks were good, but not great but all three sauces were terrible! The side dishes fell flat too, with the fries not crispy enough, the cream spinach tasteless. Service was spotty as well. One plate was served without the sauce and it took several minutes to get our server's attention.
Our guest was from Sweden and she wanted good steak. My filet was excellent but the rib eye ordered by my husband and our guest was disappointing. The steak was not tasteful and seemed small .
We did not feel it showcased good beef to our guest. Very disappointed.
Met up with friends for dinner and was originally seated behind the bar. We requested to be moved to a table away from the bar and were immediately accommodated. Our waiter was very attentive, friendly and funny. I have rather a dry sense of humor and he was very responsive to it. His name was Lenny and if you go there I'd suggest you ask for him. The food was exceptional and our drinks were excellent.
We will definitely be returning to LB Steak.
This was for a business dinner with clients and everything was perfect thanks
Restaurant published a special offer to local concert goers. When we checked in, they knew nothing about their own offer!
Another GREAT meal! The steaks are delicious, and the service is always attentive and top-notch, without being overbearing. Although we arrived close to closing time, our server never rushed us, and made sure that we were enjoying the meal. However good the service is, the food is the centerpiece, and we've never had a bad meal here. I would definitely recommend any of the steaks, but I've also had the chicken, which stands out as well. Excellent. Thanks for a wonderful experience - hope to see you again soon.
They know how to cook steaks to one's specifications. Delicious. Nice of them to treat me to a birthday dessert.
We visited Christmas eve between services and had a wonderful time. The service was tops and food yummy, though portions small. The drinks were slow coming but was ok in the long run.
Great service and got d food! Made our Christmas dinner so much more memorable! :)
The steak was sad looking. The thinness looking ribeye I have ever seen. The scallops were outstanding!!!!! The sticker piggy sundae had way too much bacon. My husband got sick that night.
Went on a Wednesday night and it was very loud and there weren’t enough waiters to go around. My group held onto their menus for 15 minutes before getting to order. The price was too high for the value of the food. When my mom ordered a soup and short ribs the waiter said that they were out of both (instead of telling us before giving us menus for 15 minutes).
For the price, I would expect better service and even better food.
Enjoy the food, we have been to Lb many times. For me I think it's hit and miss with servers. I'm not sure if our guy was new or not, but I don't like it when someone reaches across my face to grab a wine glass that I put to the side when I said I might have a glass not sure yet. Then when we asked for more butter and still didn't have when he walked passed, he got upset with his busser right behind my head. Not cool. I still tip well because I know others get part of that.
LB Steak in Menlo Park is totally opposite of the one on Santana Row. The food was less than ok, the whole atmosphere reminded of extremely low key restaurants. I've brought a friend for a dinner, hoping to impress her with the whole experience and, unfortunately, Santana Row location was closed that day(Sat). I don't think I will be attending any of the locations in the future. It was quite a sad evening to say the least.
We were pretty disappointed with our experience. The entire wait staff were all running through the restaurant as if they were being timed. Bread was only delivered to our table after we had asked for it when they were bringing the entree. My medium-rare steak came well done and when I sent it back, no apology was made. The restaurant manager walked by (ran by really) multiple times while my husband had is entree and I was still waiting and never checked in to make sure everything was ok.
Overall, a pretty mediocre experience and well below what I'd expect for what was supposed to be a nice restaurant
Food was pretty good but service was poor. Appetizers came before my drink order, and I had to collar the manager to get a soup spoon for my sister's soup.
The service this evening was poor. The wait staff kept bringing food and wine to our table that we had not ordered. We were celebrating a friend’s birthday and we had to wait a long time for the dessert. We had trouble getting anyone’s attention to get our bill but when it came, it was for another table. The food was good but served lukewarm. I like LB Steak and will definitely give them one more chance to improve.
We took friends there to celebrate a special occasion.
The steaks were amazing, and the bar tender did a super job with the drinks we ordered.
Ethan, the host, and Lenny, the waiter, were terrific.
We couldn't get a reservation at our "regular" steakhouse so we went to Open Table and noticed the recommendation for LB Steak. Neither of us had ever heard of it. But we'll be back. Everyone from the host to the manager and serving staff was friendly and we were very pleased with the food and service. We have been converted to a new "regular" steakhouse.
Excellent experience. Good energy. Top notch and attentive service. The steaks were good. The sides were perfect. Bread pudding was excellent. Energetic place but easy enough to conduct business.
We enjoyed Thanksgiving this year at LB. The menu was perfect for us, the portions generous and the service pleasant. Will most likely return! Thank you to the chefs and staff!
Food heavily salted. Sauces were bland and tasted like they were out of a jar.
