We were delighted with our experience at Starks . We had a reservation in the dining room and were seated right away. The wait staff were so considerate and professional. Food was delicious! A bit expensive but so worth it.

We love Starks and were excited to be able to go back after a year hiatus due to Covid. It was nice to see the restaurant filled (given current Covid occupancy restrictions) and we were thrilled to be able to dine in again.

We ordered the steak tartare which was very good (a little too caper heavy) and kale salad - our favorite and we are not kale lovers (so that say a LOT about this salad). My husband had the 28 month aged steak which was excellent. I had the butter fish which was not as moist as it usually is and the trumpet mushrooms were a bit undercooked this time. That is why I did not give the food an "Outstanding" - the steak tartare and the butter fish.

Service at Starks is always exceptional and given the quality of the food and the experience it is a very good value for the price. We will of course go back soon.

33 rd Anniversary dinner! Food was as good as ever! Loved the chocolate cake but had our hearts set on the creme brûlée just to find that it was sadly NOT on the menu as an offering. Please bring it back!! Best in town and we’ve missed it!! Great dinner experience as we expect from Starks’

The wedge salad was really a weak sister. The steak did not come out at the temperature I requested. My wife's fish was really good.

Service was disappointing and I expected more of the decor as well.

We had a very nice Birthday dinner there. The food, service and atmosphere were outstanding. Apatisers were fantastic. I’m not a big steak person but that was by far the best steak I’ve ever eaten and plan on going back there again!

Our waiter was great, very professional and personable. The noise level was high considering the type of restaurant, upscale. We had the shrimp cocktail, wedge salad and the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. It all was fabulous. We had the Mac and cheese as one of our sides, it was okay, nothing special. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. We were celebrating our anniversary so the gave us a complimentary glass of sparkling wine to toast the occasion.
We would definitely recommend Starks and hope to visit soon.

Wonderful service and food. Noise level was moderate, but waiting outside is required if your table isn't ready (unpleasant in the heat/cold), in case you're sensitive to that.

Good service and pleasant ambiance but the food was disappointing. Kale salad was bitter with overly lemony dressing, mashed potatoes lacked any character and resembled powdered mashed potatoes with puddles of oil. I had the tuna steak which was drenched in overly salty BBQ sauce...a terrible thing to do to a tuna steak. My fellow diners had steaks and were mostly happy but didn’t like their sides either (they got the cauliflower gruyere and the creamed spinach). And when you’re paying $40+ for a steak it seems like sides should be included and not an additional $10 each. There are so many good places to eat, I wouldn’t bother going back here.

I love fine dining and had been wanting to try Staks as I also love a great steak. What a disappointment! I took my Father there for his 86th birthday and hoped for great food and great service. Both were mediocre. Our waiter took our drink order then we didn’t see him for over 15 mins. After about 10 minutes, a bus girl brought my drink, but not my Father’s. When I inquired as to where my Dad’s drink was, she had no clue. When our waiter finally showed back up, he did not bring my Dad’s drink. We gave the water our order, and although the appetizer was timely and good, after finishing, we waited another 20 minutes for our meal. I ordered the 20 oz prime bone-in ribeye and although the meat quality was good, the steak was flavorless. Now I know why they offer so many side sauces. Call me crazy, but when an a la carte prime steak costs nearly $50, I don’t expect to have to pour sauce on it to obtain flavor. Finally, we also ordered the roasted asparagus which arrived ice cold, and the creamed spinach, which was lukewarm and unimpressive. As a 61 year old attorney who has dined all over the world, Starks at best is middle of the road restaurant billing itself as fine dining. I will not be back!

Great food and place. There were 4 gentlemen stilling near us and one of the four was in love with the word F**K. I did not mention this to our server, but I don't feel that I should have too. No one wants to hear the f bomb for an hour every 5th word. I will 100% come back, but am hopeful this information will be taken into consideration.

Every experience at Stark's is special! My partner and I went for our anniversary and my birthday. We were each given a complimentary glass of champagne, which was an unexpected and wonderful surprise. They are seating indoors, and as always, the nighttime ambience inside is incredibly romantic and cozy. It makes you not want to leave! Our food was incredible, with the steaks cooked a textbook medium rare and seasoned to perfection. It'd been quite a while since I had dined at Stark's, and I can't wait to go back!

We had a lovely dinner on a recent Monday evening. So nice to be able to eat indoors again! There were two things stopping me from a 5 star rating. After being seated, we waited over 10 minutes to be greeted by our server or table assistant. And the plating of my delicious steak lacked any kind of imagination. Not our first visit, I’m aware it is all ala carte, a twig of rosemary or anything green would help

The service was poor, the waitress was condescending and then completely disappeared after our food came, we never got one of the items we ordered, took forever to get the bill. Probably won’t eat in the dining room again, I’ve had way better service sitting at the bar.

Amazing food and service was fantastic. We have all our special occasion and fancy dinners here. The only downside is the food is so good we always leave over stuffed.
We love the ambience and we'll be back as usual sometime soon.
