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 dinner.

    The food and service is excellent. A neighboring table smelled like they doused themselves in cologne. That was the only damper on the night. Not the establishments fault though.

    Amazing birthday dinner for the best friend. Food; spot on. Steaks and scallops were outstanding. Service; excellent. Our server was extremely kind and did a spectacular job on the little details (candle in desert for one)! Overall, a bit pricey but completely worth it for a holiday or special occasion dining experience. Thank you Holdren‘s. Until next time!

    When the host/manager (???) tried to seat us at the first booth near the door (it was nearly empty inside), I asked to move one booth away because experience reminded me that the cold breeze blows right into that first booth. The host/manager acted annoyed, didn’t say anything, and just picked up the menus, moved them to the next table, and walked away. Then, it took almost 15 minutes just for someone to come take our drink order while 5 servers stood around at the bar. We watched the table next to us arrive and have their drink order taken immediately. We also watched them get bread, which we had to ask for and then our food arrived, but was cold. My sea bass was bland and covered in vegetables and only the middle was warm. My husband said his filet was lukewarm. We have been here several times and always had a decent experience, but this was super disappointing. The server was nice, but overall, I don’t think we will be back.

    Drinks Ordered: Moscow mule & pomegranate mojito, first one was missing more lime juice and second was too bitter, needed a touch more sweet. Not worth the $16 each. Appetizer Ordered: filet mignon bites, hard pass. The meat was extremely fatty and lacked the tenderness of a mignon which made me question if this was even filet mignon or a cheap cut substitute. Their "bourbon teriyaki sauce" to sub for a dip was 100% just teriyaki sauce from a bottle and not housemade. I could see and taste the corn syrup. Entrees Ordered: Macadamia Crusted Halibut & Pan Seared Salmon, the halibut tasted and looked deep fried and had a fishy smell, was not fresh or what you would expect from this dish. Normally, the crust is lightly toasted with a nutty bite from the macadamia nuts and it was completely missing. The fish is suppose to be flakey and this was 100% not it. At this point I was disappointed and wasn't expecting a high note but the pan seared salmon saved the day. I got both the spinach and garlic mash potatoes, everything came well seasoned, sauce was the perfect touch, mash was creamy and had loads of garlic, yum, and the salmon was grilled and prepped thoroughly. Worth trying if the restaurant option to come here wasn't your choice. The service was great but I can't blame them for the downfalls for the food quality and preparation. Wouldn't willingly come back as everything plus tip was $130.00 and could of spent less at Twenty88 in Camarillo.

    My wife ordered the sea bass, which she took 4 bites of and thought something was off with the fish, I tasted it and agreed. I ordered the beef Wellington, which had raw puff pastry still inside, and the filet inside was sinewy. Hiding a poor cut of meat inside a Wellington is bad form. The calamari was excellent, though small, and the mushrooms were good but the wine sauce was overly tart. While the food wasn’t great, the service was spectacular! Our waiter Scott was lovely.

    We love Holdren's. However, last evening there were a couple of minor issues. My husband's steak was not medium rare as ordered, it bordered on medium and medium well. A side order of sautéed mushrooms was forgotten. Again, we love this restaurant and these minor issues will not keep us from returning....

    We’ve eaten at Holdren’s many times before, and always enjoyed great food and service. However dinner this time was a little disappointing. The iceberg lettuce for the wedge salad was not green/fresh looking; it was actually white/yellow in color and tasted stale. The salmon I ordered was overcooked,

    Holdren’s never disappoints. The menu is very diverse so you can always find something that appeals to you. Last night my small filet was cooked to perfection The steak along with a delicious ceaser salad and baked potato and a glass of red wine rounded out a delicious and satisfying meal. Our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. He seemed to know the best times to approach the table. All in all in was a wonderful evening.

    Food and service were outstanding. Even though I reserved a week in advance, I was put in a back room because the manager said I used a 3rd party app.for the reservation. I was the first customer for a 4pm reservation and was told that the 5pm reservations received priority seating. Unbelievable!

    One of the better steak houses in the area...always good on the steaks...at least you get a soup or salad and a side WITH the entrée, unlike some other a la carte places. Service was very good as well. Will go back.

    I want to love this restaurant. The price point for a Steakhouse is excellent. All the steaks include soup or salad, a side and a sauce. These are a La carte at almost every other steakhouse and would add to the cost significantly. The wine list is excellent and much lower price per bottle than most restaurants. The staff is super nice and our waitress was fantastic. So why is this not a five star restaurant. Well, unfortunately, the food is just not very good. While the steaks were cooked perfectly, the quality of the meat is not good. On their signature steak, the bone in ribeye, there is a ton of gristle. Marbling is a good thing in a ribeye. Gristle is bad in any cut. Also, the sides are just not very good. The bacon wrapped prawns were very dry and overcooked. But the Scallop appetizer was good. Maybe it was just a bad night for the quality of the steaks or I should try a different cut. But again, I want to love this restaurant but the taste of the food is pretty much what matters most.
