Other than running out of signature prime rib by 6:30 pm, we enjoyed a wonderful meal!
Restaurant ran out of prime rib and lobster at our 7:30pm dinner. I was a little disappointed, but I ended up going with the scallops which was very delicious. Ambience is wonderful! It would help if better lighting is provided at the main entrance. It is fairly dark and I would hope no one trips on those steps.
Great dining experience! Was my friends first time.
Great spot, great quality beef and perfectly cooked temperature 👌🏻
The restaurant was extremely busy and way overcrowded with tables placed extremely close together. Two tables over from us was a party of perhaps six women screaming their heads off through the entire meal — even after their to-go bags were placed on the table! We somehow felt like management should have stepped in to remind these diners of common courtesy. We could hardly speak to other members of our party of four.
Service was kind of basic/adequate; wait staff never checked back with us or appeared attentive or concerned about our overall experience. Quality of the food itself was only average. Our experience was completely different than that at other Starks properties. We had really looked forward to this dinner out with longtime friends, but we think it will be a long while before we return.
With a fabulous experience with the most lovely steak. The only thing I would say is the music was really loud and not my style of music
I have not been impressed with many NorCal restaurants, but Starks has impressed us!! Not only have we eaten a fabulous dinner there, we have also just gone to their lounge for an amazing cocktail! The building has a great old charm and a sophisticated yet causal dining room.. old school charm! I always get scallops if a place serves them.. o enjoyed my generous portion that was under $30!
We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation, checked in with the hostess and we’re told to go outside. They didn’t call us to go back to a table until 7:20. During that time no one updated us on our status. Once at our table, we received our waters but our server was approximately another 5 minutes before he arrived to take our drink orders. We ordered an appetizer and it came out quickly and was very good (shrimp cocktail). We ordered our entrees and it took approximately 40 minutes for our food to arrive. That would have been okay if our server had kept checking with us for drinks, but we had to flag another server down to get another drink. Then, the food. The prime rib was served cold and when it was sent back to be heated up it returned lukewarm at best and was a lovely shade of “microwave” grey. The other entrees were okay, but the steak with the surf and turf was extremely salty. To say this was a let down would be putting it mildly. When the server was told that we would not pay for the prime rib he handled it well and didn’t question it.
We recognize that finding enough people to work is tough right now, but when you come in expecting a 5 star experience based on the reviews and get a one star experience it’s extremely disappointing.
Fantastic first time. Food was amazing. Overall fantastic experience. Thank you. We will definitely come back!!
Everything was delicious! Our food came very quickly and we had excellent table service. Lots of fun options for the vegetarian and the pescatarian at our table, only wish we could have tried more goodies. My fave was the understated but satisfying sticky rice with soy butter and scallions, the broccolini with golden raisins and pine nuts, the crab brandade... My sister’s ribeye was cooked perfectly and the bearnaise sauce was everything. Campari spritz ftw.
Food and service were both great!! We would definitely recommended to others.
The waiter tried to rush our ordering of our meal. Drinks took a long time to arrive. Meal was excellent as usual
We ordered a filet and salmon and both ere outstanding. Our waiter was also outstanding some of the best service we’ve had anywhere. We are in the bar but it wasn’t loud at all and the atmosphere was comfortable
The Garlic bread was amazingly soft with a flavorful punch of garlic and butter. The prime rib was solid. The corn meal breaded scallops are something you don’t want to miss.
Love it here
Have always loved stark’s steakhouse. It was definitely a fun date night spot! I ordered the lobster, calamari, and broccolini. Everything was super flavorful and the cocktails were on point!
Anniversary dinner service was excellent and food was perfect. Great restaurant for any celebration 🍾
Great service. Very loud. Scallops not very flavorful.
Went to Starks on recent wine trip to Sonoma. Service was great, best steak I’ve had in a long time. Oysters were disappointing. Prices typical high steak house prices.
The food, service and personnel was outstanding.
We had wonderful evening. Very relaxed and
Great restaurant and food for a special occasion, a little noisy but worth putting up with
We celebrated our 50th anniversary with our family and had a lovely experience.
Food was good - too dark inside…need more light. Visited from Midwest. Steaks were awesome!
Always perfect! STILL THE BEST IN TOWN. Had a great time, as usual.
Stark’s is our go-to place for celebrating special occasions. They have never disappointed. The food is consistently excellent, the service attentive and efficient, and the wine list broad. It was a great experience. Until next time...
Starks Steak and Seafood lived up to its reputation!
Best place for a great steak and all the fix'ns.
The food and drinks are on point, as always. I have been there more than five times and every experience has been great!
Loved it! Loved the menu, the food, the service. It said exceptional on OpenTable and it was!
Ribeye steak was to die for. Yam potato fries were also very tasty. Great martinis in the bar
Had the calamari to start. Covered in a sugary sauces and too sweet to eat. Had the surf and turf. Shrimp were so over spiced and small that I couldn’t eat. Baked potato was soaked in melted butter. Filet was good. If you like everything drenched in butter and true flavors disguised then this is you place.
Very good restaurant. I was impressed by the food and service. Efficient and well prepared staff that was attentive. Food was well prepared and was good value. Plan on coming back to grab another great steak.
Love the potato fondue for a fun indulgent start. Excellent entrees - carmelized butterfish, each steak dish prepared perfectly to order and delicious sides such as the cauliflower gruyere gratin.
Excellent Service for full dinner in the bar was inviting as a more causal experience yet still fine dining. Yum all around.
Great place. Waiter was phenomenal. The value was great. The only complaint was that the burger was a little salty for my girlfriends taste. The steak was perfection and the sides were just as ordered ! Thanks. We will visit again !
We waited almost an hour after our first course to get the entree.
Amazing dinner with wife! Excellent food and service.
Great experience. Food was delicious and service was fantastic. Will go back again.
Out server was wonderful. She went out of her way to identify the oysters and where they came from for my husband. The food was incredible and even though we only ordered one entree we still had leftovers. The Strip steak with mushrooms and onions was one of the best I have ever had.
Great food and good portion. We’ll definitely be back.
