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 always love coming here as a special treat. The food and service are both amazing. The only negative I can think of is that it can get quite loud sometimes. Overall, I highly recommend this restaurant.

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.

Always a great experience at Holdrens. Our waitress was excellent and friendly and the food was amazing as always. It was not very busy on a Tuesday night so was the perfect anniversary date for me and my wife

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.

This was my third visit to Holdren's. My siblings and I wanted to have a nice dinner where we would be able to enjoy the food, and the conversation. Win Win! Outdoor dining was perfect and the service was excellent.

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.

The 16oz rib eye and macadamia crusted halibut were to "die for." The absolute best I've ever had and I've dined at some of the best resuarants.
The only thing I would suggest to improve upon would be the dinner salad. It just wasn't up to par. Also, dinner roll. We had to order bread as an extra and it was just so-so, sourdough bread. The service was attentive but a little slow but I'll cut them a break on that because of all the covid-19 restrictions. Overall, a great restaurant and excellent food.

This was my first time at the restaurant. I was very excited because we were celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday. He had told me he was a fan of Holdren’s so I figured I would take him there for his birthday dinner.
When we arrived the Hostess was super sweet and greeted us with a big happy birthday. She was so nice. I expected the rest of the dining experience to be just as positive.

Once we sat down the waiter came over and never acknowledged Scott’s birthday.

Everything seemed a little rushed. The food was fine. We had ordered the onion straws which came out cold so we sent them back.

After dinner the waiter asked us if we wanted to dessert. I said “of course, it’s Scott’s birthday”.
He told us the dessert options. Scott wanted the peanut butter chocolate pie, so I asked our waiter if he could please put a candle in it.

He did and when he brought out the dessert a candle was in it and lit. He left it on the table and walked away.
No happy birthday, no singing, no offering to take a photo of the two of us nothing.
When the bill arrived, I picked it up. On the check it said Peanut butter pie BIRTHDAY. $10
Usually when bills have the word BIRTHDAY posted next to it, they take that off the bill. The birthday dessert was NOT taken off the bill. This was the first time I’ve ever been charged for a “BIRTHDAY” dessert.

The check total with tax was $99 and change ($92 and change pre- tax). I put $120 in cash into the bill and the waiter picked it up and said he would be back with change.
He never came back. We waited 20 minutes. I never got the receipt, I never got change, I never even saw him again.
We left.
The truth is, I am definitely someone who over tips for great service.
This was not great service. I didn’t feel all that special or that anything special was done for Scott’s birthday.
I dine out a lot and tend to go back to places when I like them Over and over again. Based on this experience, I’m not sure I would ever go back or recommend.

My husband and I have been frequenting Holdren's Newbury Park for several years now; and have always enjoyed the pleasant and attentive wait staff. Their food is delicious also. Our favorite is their Valentine's Day four course dinner.

Went to Boathouse Restaurant tonight - ate outside. After each guest left they removed tablecloth and replaced with newly laundered cloth. Then took square white paper and put catty corner on top of clean tablecloth. Would go Back - they were super aggressive with cleanliness Also had a hand sanitizer on each table
Wish all restaurants would follow this protocol

Ribeye steak was flavorful but tough and stringy in texture. Not the quality of steak I expected.
