My last experience was a very terrible experience, although it was the first time that has happened. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and try again.

The meal was excellent and they had a cellist playing beautifully during the meal. It was quite busy so the service was a bit slow but good. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone

If you want excellent food ranging from classic to fusion choices then this is your restaurant. The steak melted in my mouth, scallops cooked to perfection and the tuna was Devine! A classy setting, excellent wait staff that stress a dining experience instead of quick turn over of table. Love this restaurant!

Everything was very nice, food was a little on the heavy side. It was very tasty but a little to heavy for us. No complaints at all. Service and atmosphere was really good.

Food was mediocre. Cesar salad was great, cheese fondue was not good. Sea scallop fish of the day was incredibly salty and the pasta had zero flavor. Meatloaf was good and fried chicken was good but a very small portion. A bit of a disappointment to be honest.

I don't remember ever having been disappointed at either of Lark's restaurants in Medford or Ashland. I prefer Ashland because the ambiance is much nicer than Medford. The food I've ordered has always been delicious and well presented on the plate. The service is top notch. We were there this last time for lunch in Medford, the last day in December. It was very quiet and relaxing. We were able to share a dessert. Dessert isn't something either of us usually orders but we decided to end a very sour year on a sweet note! There is something I miss, though. In past years a basket of and warm rosemary bread with butter was always included with a meal. I always looked forward to it. That doesn't happen anymore. But it won't keep me from returning. I look forward to more lunches and dinners with friends close by and family visiting from far away!

Decided to have our company Holiday dinner here. My first time to try Larks and I was truly impressed with everything. Some of us met in the bar that got there a little early and that was really nice they had a little live music which is really nice and then the rest of us arrived and we sat at our table and from the moment we all arrived Larks really treated us exceptionally well the service was excellent the food was excellent everything was just spot on I’m really impressed our whole group really enjoyed themselves.
Thank you Larks for a wonderful evening. Thank you Shannon for being so super awesome. 🤗

My wife and I ordered the Umami burgers which are ordinarily fantastic. Both ended up charred on the outside (tasted burnt). Although both were ordered medium, only one was pink on the inside. The cocktails were perfect! Very delicious without being overpowering. We will go back.

Larks is my husband's favorite restaurant. We came here for his birthday and had a few friends join us who also have birthdays in November. The restuarant changed up their menu for fall and it was very good. The beet salad had more greens with terragon added. We all agreed it was much better than the old recipe. I tried the risotto. It was very tasty and filling. The only thing I would have changed was add some more meaty mushrooms to the dish. It was difficult to find any. Everyone else stayed with their old favorites of meatloaf, chicken, and fish tacos.
The fall sangria was very refreshing. Everyone loved the sorbet and ice cream, which was on the house, for the birthday crew.
Our server was great! She was very professional, which was appreciated, since my one friend is "prim and proper".
I can't wait to return again in the near future.

They only issue we had was that my friend, who I treated to lunch for her birthday, asked for ranch dressing, that never came. Finally after the second request, it came. then she asked for the dressing to be boxed up with her leftovers and ketchup was included instead. It wasnt her day for ranch dressing! Overall food was lovely.

We had one night in Medford before heading out. After reading many reviews online, we opted to give Larks a try. We were not disappointed. The food was fresh and they had a nice menu. They also had some unique cocktails too.

If you are looking for a good meal, give them a try.

Another great meal from the new team at Larks Medford! Diver scallops for one, classic burger for the other - they have something for your appetite tonight. Delightful music from Paul Turnipseed enhanced the experience!

We went for our 40th wedding anniversary. As always, wonderful experience. Top notch service, tasty food. A real highlight of the evening was the Pan de Elote dessert. BRULEED SUMMER CORN CAKE, BASIL MACERATED STRAWBERRIES, LIME RICOTTA GELATO. A very enjoyable evening. Do not be in a hurry as the service is very relaxed. Not a complaint at all. We really enjoyed the low key evening.

Meh. I found the menu to be just OK. The ambiance is good, but the food leaves a lot to be desired. Way too many ingredients that seem to be there just because they're trendy. I don't need pretentious names, peppers on my fish, and salad dressings that are so hot you need a fire extinguisher. It was hard to find anything on the menu that I liked. Keep it simple, give the diner choices that aren't so trendy, and not fully realized. I live in Grants Pass and Medford is the "big city" but we have so many good restaurants in my town that I'll save the drive next time.

We love the amazing creative and locally sourced food at Lark's Kitchen and Cocktails! The Umami Burger was like no other! Staff was SO very friendly, and attentive. This is one of our favorites in Medford. Our elderly (93 years young!) mom appreciates the quiet conversations that she can have in the spacious booths. Thanks for great ambience and food!
