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.

Always reliable. Favorite with locals. I wouldn’t say that it has the most creative dishes however what they do they do well. A sleeper dish is the tomato basil soup that might be overlooked as you get other choices along with a dinner such as their Cesar salad.

Holdren's Filet and parmesan risotto is mouth watering, juicy and very satisfying. I ordered it with the Ilaria Malbec and it was a perfect combination. The new bread service is worth the extra charge because the oil and garlic that's served on the side has just the right balance. We also ordered the Blackened Ahi Shashimi and we ate every bite!

Food was not as hood as it used to be.
Servuce was terrible, had to ask twice for every thing including straws, bbq sauce, extra napkins and still waited too long. Server rarely looked our way let alone gone out to check on us.

The menu had a nice variety. I chose the 6 oz filet mignon with the Caesar salad and twice baked potato. The salad was okay, if we return, I’ll ask for extra dressing, the steak was very flavorful but not medium rare as ordered, a little dry, the potato was delicious! One disappointment was the bread was not complimentary, which I would expect at an upscale steak house. The dessert, lemon tart, was also delicious.

Would have given them a 10/10 as the service and food was fantastic.
But they missed on a special request for a birthday mention and nothing was said.
So easy to do considering out of all the options to dine, they chose Holdren's as first choice.

Great local steakhouse. It’s a Bit too Pricey I think. Not over the top but it’s not a Ruth Chris / Maestros experience so the prices should reflect that in my opinion. Very Nice though

Being our first time, we only had reviews and pictures to make our decision to have dinner celebrating our 25th anniversary. We were not disappointed, the steak could melt on your mouth. If you want to try a unique dish not many can master, try the Beef Wellington. OMG it was beyond delicious with the beef cooked perfectly the puff pastry just crisp and the mushrooms and cheese adding a layer of flavor that hit the mid palette. The wine and spirits list is extensive as well. More importantly above all are the wait staff, they are true professionals creating a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere. Just go and experience the food and service for yourself.

1st timers but defiantly not the last. Everything was perfect from the starters thru dessert. Highly recommend the bacon wrapped shrimp and jalapeños with the sweet chili sauce.

The food was fabulous. I had the Beef Wellington and it was prepared perfectly as I requested "medium". My husband had the pork chops and his too were moist and plentiful. Stephen, our waiter, was attentive without being too much so. We thought the room was a bit cool when we first got there and he changed the thermostat for us and then checked back to see if we were comfortable. It was our anniversary and we were given a complimentary cheesecake to top off our special evening.

Phenomenal steak house. We have been celebrating anniversaries and birthdays here for many years. The steaks are excellent, always cooked to the proper wellness. Try the Cowboy steak - medium rare - tender and juicy! The service was superb. Our waiter was attentive, but not irritating with constant trips to the table. He knew when to be there and when not. Very casual and relaxed dinner.
One irritant was the noise level caused by two women at the bar that were very close to our table. They were loud and a distraction to the conversation. I would have liked someone to ask them to lower the volume a little.
Still a 5 star experience!

The food and service was outstanding as always. The only thing that made our dinner slightly less enjoyable was an intoxicated women at the table next to us who could not stop laughing very loudly. But not the restaurants fault, so no reduction in points!

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.

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.
