    Our first visit and our last. Despite the good ratings, our experience was beyond disappointment. The best thing was the bread and it is great. Butterfish was too salty and just not very good overall. I've had a lot of ribeyes over time and this was the worst. It was literally 2/3 fat. A good-sized burger would have as much edible meat and be more tender. The brocollini side was so tough and undercooked we couldn't even cut it, so it didn't get sampled. We had no desire to try dessert at this point. The server was very nice and they adjusted our bill for the fish and brocollini but they should have comped the whole thing. It's rare to be this disappointed at a supposedly good restaurant.

    The experience was overall very good. I liked the crab appetizer and cocktails. My only less than positive review is that Roger the ribeye rare came black and blue. I don’t usually mind it but the fat had not properly reduced so it had a very chewy texture. Still a great restaurant I would recommend!

    Hickory Smoked Prime Rib of Beef was bland. Sauce did not help. Crispy calamari was too sweet, almost like dessert sweet. All other sides we’re good. Service was great. Paid $420 for dinner and didnt even het a free desserrt for our birthday celebrant. Steak is not worth the money. Will not comeback.

    Great restaurant, but not really worth the stars or the money. they do a lot correctly, but a few things that just don't show the class they are trying to portray. For instance, their menu shows the Caesar salad as "Required" .. But they do a horrible job of Caesars ... they send you a plate with a few lettuce leaves with the dressing poured over the top ..cheap and simple... but a true joke for anyone who understands what a Caesar is supposed to be, especially at these prices .. The bread is in a black skillet ... and is drowning and soggy with butter ... so much, it is repulsive... not impressive. The mussels are good, but served without a serving spoon or implement. Would not be so hard on them except that they have no problem putting premium prices on their service's , charging five star prices for three, maybe four star services..

    This was our second time dining at Starks Steak and Seafood. The first time dining the food was good however a very busy evening and our drink order was not up to par! The martini I ordered tasted like water with a little olive brine... I told the waitress and she offered to have the bartender remake but I declined... We went to Starks after a round of golf and this time the food and service did not disappoint! Our waiter was very knowledgable and provided above and beyond service. Kudos to Ramy an outstanding waiter! My husbands steak that he ordered was superb and the butterfish melted in my mouth! We were so glad that we gave Starks a second chance! We will be back!

    My husband and I have been to Starks many times. The food is always fantastic and the service was great as usual. The only comment I would like to say my husbands' steak was on the fatty side. But the bread oh my I forgot how delicious it was. We will definitely be back for sure.

    My family and I were in Santa Rosa to celebrate my son’s birthday. I ordered the $54 ribeye and mashed potatoes. My steak was 25% grisel, and my potatoes were swimming in butter. My total bill for four people was $350+. Very disappointing.

    I had a long week from work, I work in an afterschool daycare program with kids. With all the rain we’ve had they’ve been indoors, so it was a week of high energy and noise. As a reward for getting through it, I took myself and a friend to dinner at Starks. Just what I needed! Great time great food and some fun people to draw. Will definitely be back to recharge the batteries!

    The experience at this restaurant was great before we even got there. The day prior they called to confirm our reservations and told us they were looking forward to seeing us. Also wanted to know if there was any special occasion which was not the case just wanted to do a getaway with my spouse. We arrived 10 minutes prior to our reservations. Our table was already ready we were sat down promptly. We ordered drinks. They were great! We had appetizer of calamari, which was wonderful. It was nice and hot, and it felt fresh. We had the Surf and a ribeye, which was cooked perfectly. The sticky rice was really nice to pair with the ribeye, they had a pepper corn sauce I believe that I would recommend trying. We did look at the dessert menu, but we were very full after that meal. We would definitely recommend coming to this restaurant and enjoy a nice meal. We would definitely return to this restaurant to have dessert that we couldn’t try this time around all the staff was very friendly very helpful and very informative.

    This was my third visit to Stark’s Steak & Seafood. The service and food is so consistently excellent! I love a nice medium rare Prime Ribeye, and Stark’s has that offering perfected! I typically go for the Brussels Sprouts as my side but last night I opted for the Crème Fraîche Mashed Potatoes, which were absolutely wonderful!

    Excellent steaks, prepared to our liking and with delicious toppings and sauces. Fun and lively atmosphere. Will definitely return! Service was a bit off for us last night; suspect our server was either overwhelmed or a newby. Did not impede our enjoyment of the evening in totality.

    The waitress seemed rushed and busy, but otherwise we had great service and food was served as we ordered it. Atmosphere was nice, however it seems like Stark's changed their dress code policy and I felt a little overdressed.

    This high end steak house is quite pricey and the food is just okay. The meat is Al la Carter’s and presented as a slab of meat on a plate. All other sides are add ones and again just fine four of us had a bill with tip for over $400, and that was with our own wine and no desert. All and all, a better fare can be found.
