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.

if you like to spend $50 on a steak, this is the restaurant for you. I did not order the steak I ordered the halibut as it was cheaper. I personally make better halibut at home. The halibut was a little overcooked, the macadamia nut crust was not as I thought it was going to be and then they put a sauce on top of it which, had I known, I would have asked for the sauce on the side.
my friend ordered one of the steaks and the exterior looked very dry, but they did cook it to the temperature she requested.
we chose the outdoor patio due to covid-19, not comfortable eating inside. unfortunately, the patio is extremely noisy due to it being off the freeway with no buffering vegetation to soften the blow of car noise. we had an early reservation time but by the time we left, the patio was fully booked as was the interior.
what saved this place in my rating is the service. our waiter was wonderful, very accommodating, wore his mask and gloves the whole time and we so appreciated that.
I would not go back again, unless someone was buying me my meal. The cost is just too expensive, especially when you know you can make better steak and fish yourself at home.

We've been to the restaurant 4 times since it reopened for dine-in service after Covid-19. All visit have been been outstanding overall. It has a very relaxed, yet elegant atmosphere. 12oz Filet with peppercorn sauce on the side, really nice!

Though I've lived, part-time, in the area for years, and my wife frequently visits on her own, this was my first visit to Holdren's. I was pleasantly surprised. It's clear that the carefully-managed establishment projects a personal and warm ambiance. The service is excellent in all dimensions, the food very good, and the prices quite reasonable, for the quality received.

Holdren’s Newbury Park is a true neighborhood gem. Everything is great here. I’m partial to Filet Mignon and it’s always excellent. And then there’s the bar! Nice selection of beers. Stellar wine list. Great cocktails and a better-than-average spirits selection. Don’t forget dessert!

The four of us had a great meal at Holdren's. The fillets were excellent cuts of meat and done to medium perfection. The sea bass was another terrific dish. Kelly, our server, did an outstanding job keeping us more than happy with her attitude and fine service. An overall great meal and evening.

For a 4:30 reservation, I wasn’t very happy with a two-top table setting just around the corner in the smaller room just to the right of the entrance. By the time we left, about 6:10, there were still several tables empty in the main dining room...offering much better ambience.

This dinner was a major disappointment. I ordered a medium rare16oz Ribeye steak topped with sliced mushrooms and a red wine demi glaze. The steak was to be accompanied by a twice-baked potato. The dinner was also to start with a seafood chowder. The seafood chowder tasted very bland and pasty, almost like it was thickened with flour and tasted of it. To me, it lacked anything that looked or tasted like, well, seafood. The Ribeye was served a bit cooler than I would have expected, but the real issue was that it was VERY tough and hard to eat. The twice-baked potato was just plain cool to the touch and was immediately returned to the kitchen to be heated so it could be served a hot side dish. I suppose I could have taken the steak home to use as a chew toy for my dogs, but I decided to turn it back to the kitchen and not ask for another as I feared that it was the quality of the steak not the cook on it that I didn't care for. On a positive note, the manager comp'd a mud pie desert that was exceptional. I think that if this place re-branded itself as a dessert spot it would get rave reviews.

Yummy food. The serving of my cioppino was enormous and spicy and filled with seafood. My husband loved his steak and lobster and the Thursday discounted price for his meal was a bargain. I’m not sure if there is always a Thursday special (?). We will definitely return.

I have lived in Newbury Park for over 50 years. Holdren's is by far my favorite place to celebrate in all of Ventura County. Their Wednesday night prime rib is the best and they always have a great supply of fresh fish. You you have a big enough appetite oder the scallops appetizer, as you will love it. To top off everything they had fresh blue cheese stuffed olives for my martini.
