    I asked for extra sherry for my she crab soup. It was sherry vinegar which tasted like apple cider vinegar. Had never experienced that before. It ruined my soup. I never complain but did say something to no avail. Terrible!

    Went in for a second try after a terrible first experience. I will say they definitely made up this time for last time. Excellent service from the beginning to the end. Simon was a great server and was on his a-game. Food was great, oyster rockafella was a great start and the steaks were cooked perfect. They made my wife feel special on her birthday and was offered complimentary champagne and dessert. My only gripe which is a slight gripe is the cut of meat for my my strip wasn’t the best for a medium rare. It was slightly tough to the cut but it was cooked perfectly so I didn’t send it back. Job well done Larkins!!

    While service from our server was exceptional, the food was not commensurate with prices. Taste was very bland on meats and pairings were somewhat distasteful. The flavors/plating/offerings left much to be desired. Our party ordered a variety of entrees and only a small percentage was enjoyed. The desserts were nice.

    Service was wonderful! Nice water flowing sounds in background. Truffle fries were incredible, tomato salad dish very good, just not impressed by soggy Brussels or their taste and the tuna app. All 3 of us were in agreement on those. All in all would still recommend.

    It’s surprising to me that with all the fine dining places we have in Greenville that Larkin’s is still in business. Our two invited guest had to cancel due to COVID…turned out I’m glad as I would have been embarrassed to have brought them to Larkin’s.

    We had a reservation. We were promptly seated outside. Such a beautiful location. It’s sad that they are moving across the street in a couple of weeks. They are losing such a picturesque location. We had the scallops with bacon to start. They were delicious but think there could have been four instead of three for sharing and the price. I had the shrimp and grits. They were very very good. Just a little too many peppers and onions. Hubby had the elk tenderloin. Small but delicious portion of meat. He said the broccolini was fantastic as well. Ended with the tres letche cake. Super delicious. Our server was great.

    It was a bit annoying that the valet service was not operating - no indication of this on the website that I could see. Obviously it's been a while since we were last at Larkin's; they had valet parking then. Time flies. Service was good, but the food is way overpriced; it's very good, but not that good. Brian was an excellent waiter.
