Steakhouse

Holdren’s in Newbury Park offers you the sensational taste that you would only find at a steak and seafood restaurant like this one. With such spectacular meal options and an equally spectacular interior, you are sure to enjoy your dining experience. The interior of Holdren’s appears upscale whether you opt for indoor or outdoor dining, but the atmosphere is inviting and rather laidback.

Perhaps one of the most sought after dishes is the beef wellington, which is a delectable 6-ounce filet combined with mushrooms and cheese and wrapped in a delicate puff pastry that is then coated with a Merlot demi glaze. Other meal options include center cut pork chops and rack of lamb. Grab your friends and family and head into Holdren’s for you next delicious lunch or dinner.

We recently had a lovely dinner at Holdrens! We requested a booth and were fortunate enough to get one. The service, food, drinks and ambience was top notch!

Food was great! Staff attentive & friendly. Place is a little small which made the noise level slightly high. Need better lighting, had to use our phone flashlight to view the menu.

I recommend Holdren's for the amazing food. We had the halibut and the beef wellington and it was so good. The service is a bit on the slower side (expect two hours to complete meal), but the food makes it worth it. One thing this past visit though, my husband sat down on what looked like chocolate. We did not notice until we left. They need to wipe down the seats better.

Very happy to support local business. No complaints but it still feels like they are trying to get things back up to speed - menu, kitchen and service.

I ate something on the lighter side even tho this place is a more traditional steak house. The vide is def old school with Sinatra playing in the background, deep booths and an older clientele. The food was on point but it was the kind, aware and polite service that made the experience better. Was dining alone as I was on the road for work and the hostess as well as my server were welcoming even though I arrived only 30’minutes before closing time. I would return when back in the area but perhaps dine outside on the patio.

Very noisy in the bar area from people waiting for a table. Our server, Scott, was excellent and we were not rushed at all even though they were very busy, I recommend the filet mignon, it was delicious.

The food is outstanding. I had the Beef Wellington and it was cooked perfect. The ambiance is good and overall value is there. The only reason I didn’t give five stars is the drink service was a little slow. Our server dropped my guest a drink and then left before I could order mine from the drink menu she gave me. 5-10 minutes later my guest finished her drink and mine was still not ordered. I finally flagged down a bus boy who saved the day and got me my drink. The service was somewhat better after that. Not a huge deal, but for a high end restaurant you expect your drink order taken faster then 10-15 minutes into sitting. Other than that though the place is great and I will definitely come again for the food.

Even though your bread is fantastic, I don't like having to pay extra for it. Your prices are high enough as it is without gauging the customer even more.

I had a glass of white wine and spicy ahi tuna. It was delicious, maybe a little too much toasted bread, good avocado and cucumber.

Thumbs up to the scallop and risotto cake appetizer. Mediocre spicy ahi. The baby back ribs you will find. Side of sautéed mushrooms - wow. Who knew a side dish could stand on its own.
