Lovely Ahi tuna. Every entree was much enjoyed and service was pleasant and just the slightest bit quirky in a fun way.

We ate here for New Year's Eve. Part of bonus special when staying at Ashland Springs Hotel. Atmosphere warm and comforting, but our table for two was smashed against a wall. Felt closed up and unable to really have a conversation since another couple was locked right next to us. Food is tasty, rich and my fish dinner was very salty so that's why I didn't give it a high rating. Price is very high for what you get. We were accidentally billed another amount to our room number even though we paid our bill in full at restaurant. It was a good thing we kept our receipt, so the hotel took off the extra charges from this restaurant. I recommend this restaurant if you want a generally nice dinner at an expensive price, but definitely save your receipt if staying at hotel.

Our meal was fabulous. We are locals and love going to Larks for all kinds of occasions. Your eggs benedict were one of the best I have had. Other good news is we used our 10% off coupon. We also like Larks in Medford and Luna in Ashland Keep up the great job of bringing fine dining to our valley.

There are too many items on the menu you need to pick up to eat. I like to use my fork as often as possible so the choices are limited unless you want a salad. The fried chicken is good but I got a very small portion. When I saw a waiter bring the same dish with a much larger piece of chicken on it to another table, I complained and got them to fry me another piece. But I shouldn't have had to ask.

I enjoyed everything but my Cobb salad, which was bland. The rest of the party liked their meals very much. The waiter was terrific and they comped the dessert for the occasion, which was a sweet 16 luncheon.

We had a wonderful experience at Larks in Ashland. The wait staff was cordial, competent, and struck just the right balance between connecting and leaving us to a vibrant family conversation.

Impeccably fine food, served up beautifully.

As a seasonal touch, a group (probably 25) of singers serenaded everyone! Actually, it became a joyful sing-along.

Great service by Jessie, just the right amount of attention. Very tasty appetizers were a beet special and squash rings done like onion rings. Had the Petrale Sole and the meatloaf, both delicious and very ample portions. Chocolate and coconut cake was basically a German chocolate cake, very well done. An excellent dining experience!

Very good food, excellent service, great mixed drinks and amazing desserts. My problem was the small size of the entrees and high prices . My duck confit, for example, was only a drumstick. Not great value. Best for drinks, appetizers and desserts.

We’ve always enjoyed Larks for special occasions and decided that dinner at Larks by itself would be a special occasion. We were right. We enjoyed sharing a “deconstructed” salad and our entrees were delicious and too large to allow room for dessert. We’re glad we didn’t wait for a birthday or anniversary to enjoy Larks once again.

We went to Larks for our anniversary. The food was amazing, very creative and beautifully presented. The service was attentive, friendly, and helpful. Unfortunately, there was a rather loud man at a nearby table enjoying an unpleasant monologue, but that was not the fault of the restaurant. We will definitely go back.

My wife and I ate at Larks before a show. The food was excellent and the ambience was extremely comfortable. The restaurant is well known so be sure to make reservations or run the risk of being shut out.
An additional fun was that this was Halloween and costume watching out the window was a treat.

I was treating a friend from the Bay Area and thought Larks would be a good choice for dinner. She had the fried chicken meal and thought it was OK. I had the Osso Buco and was not pleased.
I've had several versions of this meal and it has always been served in a rich sauce, very moist and baked for a long time so all the fat "disappears". This was fully cooked but very dry, fatty and served on a small mound of vegetables. Pricey, and not what I would call fine dining.

We always try the daily cocktail and have never been disappointed. The wine list includes some of our favorites and lest we sound like drunks, we really like the food, too!! We have had some great desserts to finish off a very excellent dinner. The service is seamless and friendly. You never feel rushed, but you get to the theatre on time. The dining room is light and pleasant tending toward elegant without pretension. (sounds like a wine! Ha!)

We have been eating at Larks for years when we travel to Ashland to see the plays at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The food is consistently excellent and there are usually enticing specials beyond what you can see on the menu online. If you linger for hours over the meal, the wicker seats can become a bit hard. Cushions are available, just ask.

Love Larks, but wish the brunch menu had more variety for those that do not eat eggs. Especially as the weather is cooler it would be nice to have a risotto or pasta dish or other types of non-egg dishes to give a warm alternative to salads. Great place, wonderful staff!
