Everything was great! I love their crab cakes, truly the best I've ever had! The salmon that i had and the BBQ ribs my husband had were delicious! Our server was professional and friendly and was very attentive to our needs. Thank you Larsen's Simi Valley for a great anniversary dinner.

This restuarant is probably too nice to have in a dumpy mall. We made reservations on OT app for 4 originally but had to quickly change it to 6 the day of because my parents were unable to watch my 8 and 10 year old. Larsens hostess did not like we didnt give them notice of such a “large” party and to please call next time. How could I call “next time” if they open at 5 and that is the time of our reservation? I tried to call earlier but they did not answer. The hostess was also rude to my mentor who is almost 70 visiting from Florida and asked to be seated outside because he was cold. They didnt honor our request and sat us in a back room where it was freezing. All the while, we watched them seat other parties outside. This restaurant seemed to either discrimnate my mentor who is older, or myself as an asian minority, or my mentors wife who is hispanic or my 2 children. I will never dine here again nor recommend to friends and family. Food is not worth it. They are unfriendly and unwelcoming

This restaurant fails at all levels - the food is expensive and not great. The menu is not creative or unique in any way. The hostess was not pleasant. Our server was excellent though.

For the money, there was not one thing redeemable about this dinner. Not one of the items we ordered was memorable.

There is no reason to go here when you could go to Mastros, Ruths Chris, or The Palm and have a better meal in a nicer ambience for the same price

Everything was perfect with the exception that the steak was considerably under cooked. We both asked for fillets to be cooked medium and they were medium rare at best. I know that chefs prefer to under cook, so as not to waste a steak, but then by the time you send it back and they return it to you cooked correctly your sides are now ice cold. Perhaps they should offer to take the sides back as well and either keep them warm or replace the side with a fresh one. Just a suggestion.

We ordered the lobster bisque…it came out cold. The ice tea was all watered down. The porterhouse and the filet mignon we’re totally over priced. The seasoning they use on the steaks was like totally salty. The same for the cream spinach very salty. The asparagus was not cooked all the way

Love Larsen’s and glad they are back but they missed the mark a bit this time. It took quite a while for waiter to show up and we waited a long time for bar drinks. Dinner salads are steep at $13 a salad and our dinner was served less than 2 minutes after salad. I think we had 2 or 3 bites before main course arrived. I recognize everyone is just getting back to work and timing issues will hopefully improve. We had prime rib and it was perfectly cooked and delicious as was the loaded baked potatoes. We will continue to dine here and support this local restaurant.

The food was ok, but they charge like they're mastros and serve just ok food. The servers were nice, but we ordered oysters as an appetizer, and I decided on the lobster bisque and a half salad for my dinner. The oysters were quite good, but we had barely started them when my soup came. So it sat there getting cold. Then when I finally decided to eat my soup, there was a long pause before my husbands sandwich and my salad came. I was very clear what I was ordering for what, so there's a lack of training there. Prices are just too high for the quality.

The new stuffed chicken breast option was not as good as the original stuffed chicken breast that used to be on the menu. The new option had a South Western flavor but it was bland and the stuffing was starchy. I understand that menus need to be updated but why change a dish that is flavorful and delicious?

It was our 22nd Anniversary and the night was on point. Food was amazing as always. Hubby had steak and wild rice. I had the Macadamian crusted Sea bass. To follow with butter cake. Food was out of this world. Thanks for making it a wonderful night.

Our meals were delicious from start to finish. Kids food came out within 10 minutes of sitting down. A real “plus” when you wanna enjoy your night out and not hear nagging to start off 😅
Ahi Tartar appetizer was delicious. It was bland a few visits ago, but asking for a side of spicy Mayo and ponzu to slather onto the wonton crisps took the appetizer to the next level.
My wife got the NY Strip, delicious as usual. Cooked to perfection. Great flavor. Brussel Sprouts as her side were great. I usually get the Kurobuta Pork Chop or Prime Rib dip, never been disappointed with either. I crave them both! This time around I chose the dip and it was amazing… again.
Butter cake was brought out to us to celebrate our anniversary. A very kind gesture. Size got smaller, flavor wasn’t on par with Mastro’s, but no complaints as it was complimentary. Very sweet of them.
Lastly, service was top notch! Allen was our server and we’ll be asking for him again. Very kind, attentive and personable. As a manager walked by to make her rounds, she stopped to check on us and got us drink refills. I can’t say enough when a ‘higher up’ gets their hands dirty to help out instead of pointing their finger and making a food runner do it for them. Real people being real friendly.
This is our go to local spot for family meals, special occasions and everything in between! We love it at Larsen’s Grill and will be back again soon.

It would have been 5 stars all round except for the fact my wife had to watch graphic videos of surgical procedures,i.e. Hernia,Gastric bypass.Trying to eat while this is going on is quite unappetizing.....maybe next time they hold a surgical seminar,someone might have the inclination to put up screens or even tablecloths so the rest of us don't have to watch it while trying to eat....poor choice of seminars to hold in a restaurant......why not a closed room somewhere?

The service was super slow. Ordered a special martini that was on the menu. It was a dirty martini and the waiter brought back a regular martini and asked me if I wanted olives?? I said of course because that is what is in a dirty martini. He never bright the olives. Crab cake app was soggy and very little crab. Steaks were not cooked to order and did not taste like prime. $300 later we were extremely disappointed. We won’t go back.

We all had steaks and added items. The crab cakes were wonderful. The New York steaks were ordered medium and arrived well done, luke warm and tough. Very disappointing. Our guests gratefully had better experience with the filet.
Our waiter never came back to check or bring water refills until our plates were cleared. Need to do better or I won’t be bringing clients here anymore.
