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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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 !

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.

Eaten at Starks several times pre-pandemic and am happy to say everything is just as excellent as it has always been. Took my daughter there and it was her first dining experience at Starks. She’s a very sophisticated person with lots of experience with high end restaurants and she loved the whole experience. Bravo!

Waitress was somewhat helpful, but also not very knowledgable on the menu items or specials. Our filet mignons were delicious, but the prime rib was sub-par. All of the sides were delicious!

When we first arrived, the music was loud and fast - not appropriate for this up-scale environment. Eventually, it changed to blues and that was better. I like Stark's but $45 for a small steak, with no sides, no sauce, nothing but the steak ... is too much. I won't do that again. I will stick to their happy hour, which is great!

First time ate in dining room have only been in bar side. Service was superior, ambience great, the steak was melt in your mouth delicious. Salmon also excellent. The crimini mushrooms were just ok.
Definitely would come back, especially on special occasions as the dining room experience was special.
Also would revisit bar side again.

The food was very expensive for what you got. Our server brought the wrong steak and had to take it back. The food was tasty though. We spent way too much for dinner. Would not go there again.
