We enjoyed our 51st wedding anniversary at LB Steakhouse. The waiter was wonderful and made the perfect selection for my wine. I absolutely looooove the baked potato, our hors d'oeuvres, salad, and entree. That extra nice touch of the dessert to acknowledge our special day was so appreciated!

We've dined that LB 3 or 4 times over the past few years. Always a great meal. This time, my wife ordered the scallops - very good! I, as usual, had the rib-eye med rare. Good flavor - but a bit too much grissel. Since it's advertised as a Prime cut...I was not expecting to navigate around the grissel.
Service was excellent - as usual. Great wine selection - and excellent dessert (Bread Pudding).
We'll continue to go back...but was a bit disappointed this time.

It was our Ann so we decided to go there for dinner. We had received some gift cards so decided to use it then. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful throughout the evening. I thought the entree I got was ok as did my husband. It was a nice evening out.

Hi LB, Normally I don’t write negative reviews. However, the 4 steaks, 1 fish, and French fries were too salty. And...I like my meat salty. So...I would talk to your chefs and give the feedback. This was on 11/6 Saturday. I feel that for what I paid...it was not worth what I paid. The drinks and the bone marrow was excellent.

My boyfriend and I decided to have a date for halloween and go eat on Santana Row. We’ve been here before but this time we tried the Japanese Wagyu and it was AMAZING! We may have went a little too overboard with how much food we ordered but it was all worth it. Our waiter was very kind but very busy he took a while with drinks but besides that he was great.

I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner, so it was meant to be a very special date night. We come to Santana Row regularly to dine (about 4-5 times monthly), and LB Steak is a place we save more for special occasions. When we arrived, I quietly mentioned to the hostess that it was his birthday, and she then told her co-host who seated us. Dinner was good, and what stood out most was the pork belly, which was the best we’ve ever had anywhere. My filet was overseasoned, salty, and too ‘done’, but it was graciously replaced with a new one that was cooked per my original request. We had a good amount of leftovers, so we asked for to-go boxes. After that, our server brought our check and left it on the table. I was surprised and extremely disappointed that no birthday dessert was brought to the table, and I didn’t say anything because I was hoping it was delayed. I waited a bit, and still nothing. In fact, our server didn’t even ask us if we wanted to see a dessert menu. So it made us feel like we were being rushed out, and this took away from what should’ve been an elevated dining experience. This has never, ever happened before anywhere, and certainly not what we expected from a place like LB Steak. This was definitely the most incomplete and insensitive birthday dinner we’ve ever had. I wanted to speak to a manager about it, but I didn’t want to taint the evening any more than it had been already. And honestly, when $200 is spent on dinner, one shouldn’t have to ask for these things.
