    Everything was delicious and the setting was perfect. We had she crab soup, scallops and cocktails to start the evening. The jalapeño margarita was spot on- spicy and refreshing. We had the salmon and sea bass, both excellent and or server was right on time without distracting us. Also recommend the Rosemary MashPotatoes and Crème brûlée.

    This particular meal was not up to Larkin's typical standards. Two orders placed incorrectly. Orders corrected but no offer to compensate, add a dessert or coffee or similar. With current pricing (inflation etc.) and personnel levels (all understandable) more attention should be given to some form of "customer compensation" when errors are made.

    Met friends we hadn’t seen in a long time for brunch. Normally brunch is slow and relaxed. Never went to Larkins so loved the location in the river and eating outside. Food was very good, prices reasonable, but service poor. Two major pet peeves during the meal- 1. Waitress cleared one plate before everyone was done and asked if we wanted dessert. Big service failure in my option, especially at a finer dining establishment. 2. After declining dessert while she picked up the one plate, she then brought the bill before the rest of us were even done our entree. This is in addition to one of our meals not coming out with the rest but waiting 5-6 minutes. (Shrimp and grits) Sorry, but at almost any restaurant that is a big failure is service. As we were with friends I didn’t want to make a big deal, but the entire situation was a bit awkward. Would I go back, yes- as I said the food was good and priced fairly. Next time I will not settle for sub-par service and it isn’t acceptable. I still left 15% tip but felt it should have been much less.

    REALLY REALLY POOR SERVICE. WAIT STAFF COULDN'T ANSWER A SINGLE QUESTION ABOUT THE FOOD. HAD TO ASK FOR EVERY SINGLE ITEM ( FORK , A STEAK KNIFE , WATER , NAPKIN, ETC (ONE OF THOSE MEALS) AND HAD TO ASK FOR CHECK AT THE END OF THE MEAL - WHICH TOOK 15-20 MINS TO FIND AND DELIVER. AND ANOTHER 10 MINS TO RUN THE CARD. AS FOR THE FOOD ??? STEAK WAS GOOD -A TAD UNDERCOOKED BUT GOOD- WAS WITH A TABLE OF 7 AND A FEW LIKED FOOD AND REST SAID SERVICE -TOOK OVER BAD EXPERIENCE. THREE KIDS OVERED SHIRLEY TEMPLES - ALL MADE WRONG ??? BUT STAFF CORRECTED PROBLEM IN 15-20 MINUTES . BEST PART OF THE MEAL WAS THE BREAD BASKET ??? ASK THE STAFF FOR ANOTHER BASKET OF BREAD AND IT CAME OUT WITH THE DESSERT!! TOO MANY PLACES IN GREENVILLE TO GO BACK AGAIN!! SORRY BUT IF YOUR CHARGING 50 BUCKS FOR A STEAK -YOU NEED TO HAVE THE SERVICE LEVEL ACCORDINGLY !! I OWN A BUSINESS AND HAVE 3 KIDS - THINGS ARE NEVER PERFECT-BUT TOO MANY THING WRONG - MANAGEMENT NEEDS TO STEP IN AND CORRECT ASAP !!

    Stopped here by chance and it was a gem! Great food, great service. I had the sea bass and it was excellent! My wife had the filet and she thought it was great. The couple with us had the salmon and both thoroughly enjoyed it. Couldn't have been more please.

    Very disappointed. For a steak restaurant the NY STRIP 14 oz at $50 was a thin cut , seemed like a cheap piece of meat. A cheap cut not a juicy piece of meat. Very disappointed. Won’t be going back..

    Lovely restaurant. Staff was well trained and accomplished. Our dinners were terrific. The restaurant is on the River, however only the outdoor patio diners can view it. So don't expect to be river side unless you ask for the patio. Otherwise a lovely venue.

    Food and service were excellent. The silver, stemware, and plates all had crude or spotting on them. The devil is in the detail- food was great but make sure what you serve it on and what is provided to eat with is clean.

    Food and presentation were excellent, as usual. The service was not up to Larkin standards. When we arrived, I ordered a glass of champagne and a bottle of wine for the table. The server did not bring either until about 30 minutes later. He came back to the table to take our order and I had to "request" that he bring the drinks before we placed our order. I assumed that the drinks would be brought immediately, which was my error. My suggestion is that the wait staff ask if the patrons would like the drinks before their meal.

    We went to Larkins for a special birthday dinner for our daughter, who was turning 35. The service was topnotch. The food and wines that we had were excellent. We especially liked the oysters on the half shell appetizers (a great value at $1.99 each). The rack of lamb and the elk filet were both perfectly cooked and served with tasty sides. The only complaint that we had for the evening was that, at 7 PM on a Wednesday night, they were out of one of the wine choices (by the glass!) that we wanted and they were also out of the pork chops entree, which was the only thing one of our party was interested in for his dinner. He had to re-look at the menu, chose shrimp and grits and was not terribly impressed with the quality of that rather pedestrian offering. If it had been late on a busy weekend night, we would have better understood lacking two key menu items, but we were disappointed that they were out at the relatively early hour of 7 PM on a mid-week dinner offering. Otherwise, the meal was a very nice one, and we would certainly recommend Larkins to anyone looking for a very nice dining experience.
