    We just loved Johana our server and George the runner. So great and friendly and kept their wits about them. Food good, drinks great (kudos to the bartender!!) and my only issue was when I made the reservation I didn't know breakfast was over SO we enjoyed the Mothers Day Brunch Menu. (even though there wasnt any pancakes) We had eaten here before when it was under other ownership. So glad to see it re-opened and it is really good. We are looking forward to going back. We had a nice meal and chatted with staff and then we even walked around the hotel. if you are thinking of a place to go for any meal, go here it was a good experience

    Great stuffed dates and artichoke Appetizers split the Mary’s fried chicken. I’m southern and I’m very picky when it comes to fried chicken. It was delicious double crunch not greasy. Will definitely come back. Band was lovely too. And service. Alicia was great .

    We made reservations for date night and the hostess was disinterested and asked us to sit on small bar table and offered to seat us to the bar! When we insisted that it was a dinner date she took us to the booth The food was below average The date wraps were burnt The salmon didn’t taste good The beyond meat bolognese was tasteless Felt like they were reheating and serving us frozen TV dinners Way overpriced Would not come back here ! The band was good

    Staff were nice and welcoming. Service was enthusiastic but not very professional. Food was extremely disappointing. Chicken was bone dry and lacked taste. Burger was pathetic in every regard. The food was what one might expect in an inexpensive pub chain. We wanted to enjoy the experience so much but we were completely and utterly disappointed. Charging almost $20 for a speed rack quality martini is insulting.

    Outdoor seating was great and I appreciated the host calling me in advance for seating preference. Once we got there, the table was great, but the experience worsened from there. While the music was great, it was way too loud, and we sat outside and couldn’t carry on a conversation. The volume could be dropped down a couple notches. Our server, while friendly and courteous was not attentive and even though she wrote drink orders down, did not get them right. We also waited quite some time for food and drink orders. I ordered the Short Ribs. These were marginal. First off, the portion was huge! Way too much food. The ribs were bland, fatty and tough. The sauce could have been reduced and more rich in flavor. I could still taste “raw” wine. We would come back for drinks and listening to music, but for dinner, probably not.

    The food was too expensive for the type served The staff was poorly trained (but pleasant). eg. they brought our main courses while we were still eating our appetizers! I requested my salmon "under-cooked"; it was crisp and dry. I requested my slider medium rare; it was very well done.

    the calamari was burnt. almost inedible. i’ve had the hummous several times but this serving was weird. really didn’t taste like hummous and the pita was rock hard. the brussel sprouts are the best anywhere! service was very good. curious tho that in an empty patio a large table of coachella kids were seated right next to us-we are an older couple.

    We were very disappointed We arrived for a 6pm reservation made on OpenTable The two hostesses looked very confused They chatted about where to seat us. Though there was only one other table seated when we arrived, we were told we could have a booth as it may overwhelm the server. We waited a long time for a beverage and even longer for the second. The salad was underwhelming. We were looking forward to entertainment which was so loud we had To leave as we could no longer visit. A disappointing experience all and all. We won’t be back.

    Our dinner was very disappointing. We have been there before and loved it, but last night??? The waiters couldn’t get the sparkling water and water straight…they kept filling up our glasses with wrong water. Most restaurants give different glasses for sparkling water to cut down on the confusion. But these were all the same glasses. Our friend ordered the chicken bowl which came with no chicken. They had to bring it later. My husband ordered avocado on his burger and the avocado came late. My beet salad was good but all the quinoa on it was very undercooked….crunchy, and it hadn’t been washed properly before cooking so was very bitter. Bitter and crunchy….two things quinoa should not be. Other than that it was okay, but we won’t be going back any time soon.

    I liked everything about this restaurant. But request an outside table, because at 7pm there's live music and it gets really loud...can't hear yourself talk kind of loud. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is well prepared and served. Several interesting cocktails and a good wine list, including some good moderatepriced house wines by the glass. We will go back.

    We were very disappointed with the dining experience at Larkspur. The wait staff were friendly, but were mere order takers. The quality of the food was above average, but not superb - especially for the price. I think they have the ability to do/be better.

    We had asked for patio seating and the hostess called to say they only had indoors but there was a jazz band. I said fine as I love jazz but didn't want to be too close to the band so we could converse. It was a 3 piece rock band that was so loud it was comical! I have nothing against a rock band but it is not for a dinner atmosphere! We couldn't wait for the band to take a break so we could talk! Food was great and the server was good.
