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 have the best time at Holdren's! ALL of the staff are so friendly! The food and drink are wonderful too! They have a great happy hour with lots of yummy appetizers! Can't wait to go back!!
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.
We are so happy we found this place. All the food is great and so is the service.
Top notch food and drinks. Decor was dated but it didn’t matter. Can’t wait to go back!
Food is as stellar as ever. It’s a bit of a drive for us to get to, but it’s hands down my favorite restaurant in the region.
We had a wonderful time at Holdrens last night. The food was amazing, the server was attentive, and the outside dining was wonderful.
Always a great time with fine wine and great food.
First time at Holden’s. Great experience, staff, food just a wonderful dinner. A definite do again.
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.
Had reservations were made, website said walk-ins would be seated on patio and we were seated on patio.
Had to ask for drink refills.
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.
Delicious food, great service and pleasant ambiance on the patio.
Outside patio was absolutely wonderful! Food and service excellent. Thank you!
Anniversary dinner. Holden’s is always great and the staff are wonderful. Highly recommend!
Great Service Food etc.
Nice date night. Good food, nice atmosphere and great service.
Great steaks. But it's all good
My experience at Holdren's was great as usual. Staff is friendly and customer service is top notch. My server was Minesa. he was great. I have been coming here for years and will continue to for this great service and food, that you can't find everywhere and not always both.
Excellent as always. Our favorite local gem for a nice meal out. Holdrens never disappoints.
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.
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.
Love going there. Good service and good food.........
Had a nice 49 anniversary dinner there and enjoyed the complimentary dessert.
Have dined here many times in the past. The food was well prepared. Calamari was outstanding. The Cowboy cut rib eye was great.
Great birthday dinner with my family!
Outstanding food and customer service. Ensure you have a RSVP.
We had a wonderful dining experience!
Service was excellent
Professional and helpful and attentive to our table.
The food was perfect!!
Thank you Elaine & Larry
Food was delicious as always. Server was excellent. Highly recommend
Great to be back inside. The service was great! It was a bit pricy and the charge for bread???? Overall good.
It’s always great here.
Excellent food and service. I will be going back again soon.
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
Great food!!! The ciopinno is one of my faves!!
Ribeye steak was flavorful but tough and stringy in texture. Not the quality of steak I expected.
Service was excellent and we enjoyed the patio ambiance.
I had the center cut pork chop and it was excellent. Wife's salmon was a bit fishy. Drinks were good,. Service was good. Expensive!
