    Came highly recommended when looking for a quality steak restaurant to celebrate a birthday. With a reservation we still had to wait over Reception was not warm. After being seated it was 20 min before our waiter came to table. He was pleasant and affable. We ordered filet mignon (excellent) and New York strip steaks (ok - a little chewy). Caesar salad was good but croutons had artificial taste. Mashed potatoes were bland and baked potato was ok. Mac and cheese side was very good. Valrhona choc cake with caramel mousse was very good. Vanilla bean gelato was mediocre. Overall we had a decent experience, however it was not impressive. We may try again in the future.

    Dylan served us very well. Attentive staff. The bartenders are always very good here. Potato skin fondue is the best starter to share! Great hamburgers! Creamy gelato. Excellent lunch.

    The food was delicious, as usual. But, both of us noticed that our steaks were almost cold. We didn’t complain because our service was amazing! Leo was so welcoming and informative and obviously really cares about his customers. Also, it would be nice to have a few wine choices that aren’t so expensive.

    We were there for our wedding anniversary. Service (our server was Leo) was outstanding - helpful and attentive without being over the top. Steaks and side dishes were just delicious and cooked to perfection. We will be back!

    Last night the dining room was very noisy. We had a party of four and it was difficult hearing each other. The location is excellent if you are going to 6th Street. We have been to Starks many times but will look for another pre theater dinner. Lunch may be a better option.

    Overall very disappointing. No one greeted us or acknowledged us, didn’t feel welcomed right from the beginning. They were out of what I wanted on the menu. We were served so fast our cocktails still weren’t made. The meat was served without the wine and the meat was very smoky so just know that’s their style. We got truffle fries and they were basically frozen with truffle oil. I can do that at home. We can do much better for much cheaper. Starks restaurants are way overrated. If the goal is to get people out of there in a whim and serve as many table as possible, mission accomplished! We were seated and finished in barely 45 minutes. We never go out and this is why. Needless to say we won’t be back to any of their restaurants. What a waste!

    One of my favorite dinner experiences. Steak was perfectly cooked and love the various butters and seasonings to accompany the steak. Service was excellent and staff was very attentive. Finished the meal with dessert and a great French pressed coffee. Highly recommend this place if you are in the area.

    This wasn't my favorite dining experience at Starks. My petit filet a came out very rare (it was supposed to be medium) and I had to ask for it to be cooked longer. My husband asked for his prime rib to be seared on both sides and he was looked at and told it wasn't something they normally do (and yet he's asked for it every time we've gone). Generally everything is wonderful, we will give it a try one more time.

    Our waiter was very professional! All busers and hostesses were very efficient and friendly 👍 I asked for sparkling water, not expecting to pay $9 for a bottle. Suggest to let the customer know the size and price. 🤔 The ribeye steak was mostly fat. The scallops were ok.

    Food is impeccable! The atmosphere is great for an annual special treat. Like a downtown San Francisco old style restaurant with dark wood, "fancy" feel. The only things I'd recommend are to arrange two-tops so that one person isn't facing a wall. It detracts from the entire experience of wanting to be included in the festivities. And please, managers, encourage your servers to drop the "we" pronoun from communications with guests. I.e. "are we going to enjoy some sides today?" or "are we coming to decisions on the menu?" It feels condescending.
