absolutely amazing. from service to apps to drinks to entrees. will go again for sure!!
Wedding for a friend
Dined outside because the weather called for it. Service, location, food quality and quantity.. everything was very good.
I wish I could recall our server's name....she was superb!!
Excellent food, well prepared, great service. Indoor dining with Distanced seating and masks worn by staff. Recommend reservations during peak times. Highly recommend.
Entrée Salad served had many ingredients missing
Sandwiches were excellent and well presented
enjoyed our lunch
I made a reservation very early in the week and specifically asked for a table inside. We were seated outside at a table that was not level. This was very annoying the entire night. We tried to fold paper to put under one of the table legs but we were not successful.
When we ordered a bottle of wine, it took forever for them to finally bring it to our table.
The food quality was excellent but I was quite disappointed in the details of the evening.
Excellent food and service. We were seated outside and were concerned about the chilly weather, but it was warm and cozy with the heaters.
We had an amazing time. It was a great night for the patio. Really enjoyed our server- sorry, cannot remember his name. We had a large party and he took great care of us.
Food was amazing!!! Atmosphere was great!
Will be back for sure.
The ambiance was nice, perfect for a date. The food was excellent and the servers really made us feel valued. They treat you well, would definitely recommend.
Wonderful Fall menu!! Safely seated, (Covid times), service was friendly, helpful and timely. Not much room for improvement! Best night out in a while! Thanks!!
My wife and I are doing the around the world tour at Larkins. Last stop was Greece, food was excellent. Been to Germany and Spain, both were wonderful as well. Looking forward to our next stop in France.
Guests were served the wrong entrees. No attempt was made to rectify. Server blamed the chef and walked away.
I Had A Good Time, Food Was Awesome, Customer Service Was Good, The Whole Night Was Just Awesome.
Great good. Great service. Would definitely recommend.
Planned a weekend trip just to eat at Larkins. Wonderful food and service.
My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary, and it was excellent. I would absolutely recommend going here. The food was fantastic, and the whole atmosphere was great. It is a bit on the pricy side, but it was w worth it.
Excellent food, service and ambiance! We had two out of town relatives visiting and they were very impressed!
Overall a great experience, Everything was outstanding. It was my son's b-day and on the card from Larkin's it stated Happy Anniversary! Just a little attention detail.
Lovely night out- outdoor seating- outdoor temperature was perfect but there were heat lamps if needed- service was good- not too intrusive but there just when needed which we greatly appreciated - meal was cooked exactly as ordered and was perfect temp
on arrival (Steak au poivre and rack of lamb) - glad we made this choice - nice wine list-
Enjoyed the experience immensely. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very nice. Our waitress Nina was wonderful. This wasn’t my first visit. I will return again in the future.
We drove down to Greenville to celebrate a birthday and made the reservation through Open Table. Our reservation was for 2:00 pm on the patio overlooking the river. There was also oat nobody there so we had a nice meal on a wonderful day for the weather. Luncheon menu was ver limited but food was good and well prepared. We also had wine and enjoyed the time there.
What a treat for lunch . Best crab cakes in town ! Highly recommend this place !!
I love Larkin’s. Bruce is cute too.
You are too kind. Come back soon!
We can’t wait to return to Larkins! The meal was delicious and our server was very attune to our every need. Overall, excellent dining experience.
And we can't wait for you to return!
Fantastic service, food and beautiful heated patio. We had a wonderful evening!
Thank you for sharing your experience with others!
Service was very slow (despite a small crowd in the restaurant). Food was lukewarm at best.
Thanks for sharing your experience and we are sorry that we did not exceed the standards we set for ourselves. We pride ourselves in providing exceptional food and service and we will use your feedback as a learning tool with our staff.
My husband and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary there, and Serenity, our server, made it so special with a complimentary champagne toast! I had the pork chop, hubby had filet mignon, and both were excellent! We will certainly return to Larkin’s the next time we are in Greenville!
Congrats on 31 years! See you next time you are in town!
Wonderful experience starting with David, who confirmed our reservation to our wonderful server, who I won’t name out of respect for her wishes. Highly recommend Larkins. Inside was much quieter than outside and their cherry vanilla infused bourbon was surreal. The Chilean Sea-bass is a must try also!!!
Thanks for taking the time to share your experience!
Anniversary dinner and did not disappoint. Only glitch was my wife’s filet was significantly overcooked. However, the waitstaff, as well as the Manager, quickly resolved. Steak was replaced in less than two minutes, and was perfectly cooked. We were also offered a complimentary glass of wine as a result. Classy touch with a complimentary glass of champagne for our anniversary, along with a free dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant and will return when we are back in Greenville.
Happy Anniversary! We are happy you chose to celebrate at Larkin's!
Beautiful, quiet comfortable outdoor seating. Delish food, great service. Knowledgeable wine steward.
We are happy you enjoyed your experience!
Birthday was wonderful. Only slight issue was having an early reservation and when I called to confirm, and asked regarding the limited menu at 4:30, the host assured me the full menu was available.
We are glad you had a great Birthday!
When we booked the reservation, it asked if we were there for a special occasion. We were there for our anniversary. No one every mentioned it or acknowledged it was our anniversary. Why did it ask? There was no personalization to our experience and the waiter was in and out like you would experience at a lower end restaurant. There wasn't any personalization like you would expect at a restaurant of that caliber, that location and that price. We were very disappointed.
We certainly fumbled the ball on that. We ask people if they are celebrating anything special because we love to do something extra for that person. We clearly did not do this and I am very sorry about that. I will use this as a learning experience with our staff. I am going to reach out to you personally to try and make this right.
David went out of his way to accommodate us in special seating due to COVID. We had a delightful evening.
We will pass on you appreciation to David! Come back soon!
Larkins on the patio is The Best location in GVL. Quality of food is gourmet . Try it you’ll like it and return often!
Thanks for the raves!
Wine was warm and steak was cold. Ordered medium rare and came out red. Skin was not seared. This is a steakhouse, not a bar. Jumbo shrimp cocktail was grocery store level. Oysters pass but not well chilled either. Overall, very disappointing. Server was very nice, but not attentive.
Thank you for sharing your experience. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your evening and we will share your notes with the appropriate staff.
Was amazing!! Food and service was top notch!! Was just really hot inside. Recommend table outside but def will be back!!!
Sorry about the heat situation. We have that resolved! We look forward to seeing you again!
