    Stark's has lot of hype, and is pricey, therefore I had high expectations for our anniversary dinner. I started with a lemon drop martini; my favorite cocktail. It was weak on the alcohol, and much too tart. I only had a few sips and sent it back. I have never done that before. Next we had oysters. They were good- not great. Thankfully, the salads were excellent, both the spinach and the Caesar. For our main course we had the smoked prime rib, and the aged New York. My husband said the smokiness overpowered the taste of the meat. My New York was very disappointing. There seemed to be gristle in every bite. The worst part was how tough it was. For over $50.00, I was hoping for a tender, flavorful prime cut of beef. I have had much better steak at restaurants such as Underwood and Rustic. Thankfully, we ended our meal with cheesecake pie with peaches was delightful.

    Came here for my boyfriends birthday and they followed the note I gave them. Our server was Leo and he was the best waiter I ever had!!! I highly recommend asking for him if you guys want to have a great experience! He has a positive and funny personality that made the dining experience better! I had the wagyu sirloin and my boyfriend had the New York steak and he liked and enjoyed all the food and cocktails we got! I recommend giving this place a chance! Thank you Leo for your excellent service and for checking in on us when we wanted our entrees!!

    The food and service was outstanding, I’ve never had better steaks. The appetizers and side dishes were ample portions. The only detractor is the noise level, making it impossible whole a conversation. They need to address the acoustics of the room.

    This was the noisiest restaurant I have been in. On a Tuesday evening in the dinning room the noise level was higher than the jet I flew in with. I measured. Food was ok. Price was premium. I’m not likely to go back

    Starks Steak and Seafood has become one of our "go to" places. Nice they offer two ways of dining depending on your mood - Bar and dining and Dining only choice. Our favorites are their Caesar salad with toppings, scallops, rosemary/dill bread, mashed potatoes and their oysters are fresh. Of course, their meat is tasty. Their vanilla ice cream mixed I think with marshmallow is just tremendous.

    We had planned to go to Starks and we’re not disappointed. Our reservation was early to avoid the increased noise level that a Friday night brings. Our waitress was wonderful and her recommendations excellent. A thoroughly enjoyable dinner.

    It was ridiculously cold in the restaurant! We don’t drink, so no booze to ‘keep us warm.’ We decided not to go back based on how uncomfortable we were during dinner & dessert. We almost didn’t get dessert because we wanted to get out to warm up, but we love all the desserts there. We know the servers are wearing long pants, socks, shoes, shirts & aprons, but while eating dessert, the a/c kept blowing on us. It was 8:15 pm!!! Also noticed that the food hadn’t stayed hot very long!!

    When we arrived, we had reservations and we were seated within 5 minutes. The restaurant was very clean. Had a very warm inviting romantic feeling. The server Matthew was pleasantly informed of everything on the menu and very very attentive and friendly. The food was beyond amazing. The old saying, you pay for what you get... that is this place. Every bite was full of flavor. Delicious.

    Good food on the expensive side of dinning. Service was great. A little too much time in between courses. Giant cow art on the walls felt wrong. May try again and order much less and sit where we would not see the cows.

    Redemption! The last time we went to Stark's for dinner was not great, but on June 23, 2002 we had a great meal. It's certainly a bit expensive, but the porterhouse was cooked to perfection and had great flavor. The baked potato could have used more butter but again was very flavorable, and the creamed spinach was excellent. The wine list is pretty nice but prices are a little high on many of the selections. I personally think they should have 80% Sonoma County wines. Overall it was great to get a wonderful meal with very good service.
