    As always, food was awesome. Prime Rib melts in your mouth and the crispy calamari is just the best. We usually dine here on special occasions and we were celebrating my birthday and usually get something special from the kitchen (dessert with a candle I think in the past) but nothing last night. And we were very clear to have the feta cheese on my wife’s salad is put in the side but this didn’t happen. We didn’t get charged for it but it wasn’t a perfect dinner like we’ve had before.

    It hurts to criticize this place because it’s always so so good in every aspect but the Thanksgiving turkey dinner was not very good. The blue cheesy stuffing was actually pretty good but the turkey itself was in tiny pieces, not the slices I am used to nor the ones I was expecting. Two pieces of broccolini, which were very very good. The gravy was more of an au jus than an actual gravy. It was a big sloppy platter and I was disappointed. However the tomato soup was to die for as were the yeast buns drenched in garlic and butter. Drinks, as usual, were outstanding and the gem of the night were the grasshoppers we had with dessert. What a delicious drink! And so pretty! The interior of Stark’s is absolutely beautiful and welcoming. It is a comfortable place. (We are used to the bar area LOL) The service, as usual, is excellent. Stark’s restaurants have some of the nicest employees.

    Thanksgiving. Food was good. Too much food, very rich. I felt rushed through out the meal. We we served a huge plate of food just after receiving cocktails. The minute a took a break they were risking plates away in to go boxes. Slower pace would be much better

    This was a wonderful dining experience, we were there for my wife’s birthday, service, Great, food Great, value great. Went to a fancy Prime rib restaurant in Beverly Hills, and the food was so so. Stark’s GREAT, we both thought Stark’s was So Much better food, service, ambiance, and value, and in Sonoma county. We will be going back for our next special occasion. Thanks Stark’s .

    We're a big fan of the Starks restaurants (Starks, Willi's, Bird and Bottle, Bar Bravas etc). Living in Healdsburg we have two of their best, Bar Bravas and Willi's Seafood. Both longtime faves. We were thrilled to be given a gift certificate for our choice of restaurants and chose Starks Steakhouse. Located in one of Santa Rosa's oldest nightclub/ restaurant locations in the Railroad Square area Starks repurposed the old Michelle's for one of their restaurant locations. Its large and roomy, with a walk in bar dinging area and also a more formal dining area on the other side. The menu is FUN, we agreed that the sides were far more entertaining than the prime rib and steaks listings. (We both enjoyed the prime rib, queen's cut, and several sides. Service was polite and attentive, and the food of good quality.

    We came from Vacaville for my husband's birthday. Easy to make reservations. Service was excellent. This was our first time there and the server was amazing, knowledgeable and very polite! My husband's words after his first bite of steak "oh wow!". Food was delicious! We will be back! Worth the hour drive.

    Epic meal! Husband had the king’s cut of prime rib and I had the Caesar steak salad! Both were amazing. Onion rings to die for. The only con was the red pepper flakes on the salad. Service was superior. It was a little hard to hear due to noise levels.

    It's been a while since we'd been here and we had high expectations after dining at several top steakhouses in Chicago & Las Vegas recently. Starks didn't disappoint. Cocktails: Roller Girl and Blood Moon Rising --both very good! Bread--They have the best rolls, 6 come in a cast iron dish sitting in a pool of melted garlic butter (also drizzled over the top.) Appetizer: 1/2 dozen BBQ oysters -- very good. Sides: Brussels sprouts (with apples, onions, & sausage), very good. Cauliflower & Gruyere Gratin, very good and a bit sweet from the gruyere. Steaks: Bacon wrapped prime Angus filet mignon, very good. Cooked perfectly at medium. Warning, this is topped with butter, so rich, but delicious. Frankly, with the butter, I didn't need the bacon, but it was great nonetheless. My only critique here would be that it was a bit on the salty side, I would have preferred a tad less. New York strip prime Angus bone out (you get a choice of bone in or out), perfectly cooked medium And perfectly seasoned. Dessert: Meyer Lemon Pudding Cake this was really nice, light, not too sweet, and though the menu says strawberries, ours was a pomegranate drizzle which was fantastic and much better than strawberries ever would have been. Dessert Cocktail: Espresso Martini, very good.

    It is probably my fault for not asking but I made a reservation well in advance and we got the noisiest, least coziest table. Staff was a bit on the 'rush' side, too, but, overall, we will be back.
