Larsen's Steakhouse - La Jolla
毎日の 17:00 - 19:00
We were there on Father's Day, so we were told it was more crowded than normal. Food was delicious, just be prepared to spend a lot of money. I would ask for a booth, although next time we may sit in the bar. They serve the full menu in there and it was much quieter. Also, you get the happy hour drink and appetizer prices!
Excellent food, great service and pleasant atmosphere...
The service was outstanding. Very attentive and personal. The decor was pretty nice. The food portions were decent sized (desserts are enormous) but not the best I've had especially considering the price. Had a 12oz filet mignon which was very nicely seasoned on the outside. However it was a thick cut and the center really wasn't quite as flavorful as the exterior.
I was disappointed that the one thing that Larsen’s should excel at, steaks, they failed. The wet-aged rib-eye that I was served was over cooked, tough and devoid of flavor.
We celebrated our son's graduation at Larsen's and were very glad we did so. The portions were ample, the steaks were divine, and my wife's seafood dish was excellent as well. The service was also top-notch. Would recommend this restaurant for celebrating a special occasion.
We decided to eat in the bar and really enjoyed dinner. Rob, the bartender, was very attentive and made a mean martini. We share most meals and had a wonderfully cooked rib-eye with garlic mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. It was one of the best steaks I've eaten.
The only suggestion I might make is instead of all-night happy hour, offer a meal at a reasonably set price for people who want to experience Larsens. Once they experience how good the food is, they'll return.
Thank you for the wonderful feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your dining experience. I will share this great comment with Rob and the rest of the staff as well. See you again soon Ivica general Manager

Great dining experience. As a service industry professional this was an amazing meal. Went for my mother’s birthday and couldn’t have been happier. Food was superb, service on point and having the executive chef touch your table to check on your meal is always a great vibe. Definitely added to my rotation and a top recommendation.

My daughter and I went to celebrate our birthdays since they are both happening this week. They acknowledged our birthdays when we walked in. And that’s the end of the story. When I asked the waiter if they did nothing for birthdays after he brought the check he said he didn’t know we had a bday at the table. He then gave us a brownie to take home. We had a very nice evening but that aspect of it was disappointing.
Great ambiance, great steaks...Food made to order, excellent service. Staff very friendly and professional.
Everything was delicious. The restaurant was quiet but the service was first class and attentive.
What a beautiful steakhouse!! Our service was impeccable and rinks rope notch!!! Our steaks were cooked to perfection and we wanna come back and just hang in the beautiful bar area.
Overall, excellent experience all the way around.
We will definitely be back😀
I wrote this great review and my browser crashed. So this is all I got now: Our sever Patrick was great, steaks were wonderful, great place for a celebration, go there knowing it is pricey.
My Aunt’s 93rd birthday. Fabulous meal and the special attention we received from the entire team was nothing less then extraordinary. First off, no matter how good the staff, it’s always primarily about the food. From the salads which were delicious to the scrumptious Chocolate Lave Cale (so light as to be the perfect birthday topper. But the Star was the 20 oz Bone in Rib Eye which we split. One of the great steaks in recent memory with bountiful flavor. My comment to our elite server Molly were if this restaurant was in NYc we would not be able to get a reservation. It was that good. Molly did an amazing job of remembering my Aunt’s needs from our previous visit which was pretty incredible. Best service I’ve received in any eatery by far. We also asked for and had a brief chat with the Chef to thank him for cooking us the best meal of 2019. I can’t say enough good things about the food and overall experience. Thanks to the 5 star team in a 3 star San Diego restaurant world 🌹🌹🌹🌹
The bread was good, besides that, nothing was worth the price.
From the first hello with the hostess, to even walking out after dinner, everyone was very friendly. Our food was excellent and the special touches to celebrate our anniversary were very appreciated.
Fantastic food and fantastic service. I took my fiance' out for "date night" after being referred by a coworker. We were both awestruck and extremely pleased with the service and absolutely the food! Thank you all so much for the hospitality! See you again soon!
Went for our anniversary dinner! They started us off with two champagnes on the house which was such a nice touch! Paul was our server and be was amazing and extremely knowledgeable. He also brought us out a complimentary dessert! Such a great experience!
Everything was great
Outstanding service and the steaks were cooked to perfection.
We enjoyed a wonderful evening with friends
Always the best service and food! We come here for special occasions and Larsen's never disappoints. Our fave steakhouse in San Diego Cty!
The food was great and the service was outstanding, Our first time and will definitely back. Our waiter Bob was very good and helped us get through their menu.
The service and food was great for being the first impression. Location can be a host for various occasions which is good. 10/10 would recommend!
Celebrating our anniversary, we wanted a quiet place to eat great food, enjoy each others company, and have a good time. Larsen's fit the bill. We arrived and were promptly seated. The table had rose petals to help us celebrate. The wait staff was wonderful, attentive and helpful, but not overbearing.
The food was paced well, we enjoyed our cocktails and appetizers, and were never rushed.
The steak was excellent. They even gave us a complementary chocolate cake to celebrate out anniversary. Our 9 yr old son, was with us and while he is used to going to formal restaurants, sometimes the staff can be put out and have issues with children, they treated him like another guest.
We had a wonderful time, and will be back.
Perfect in every way. Best steakhouse in San Diego at the moment. Great service on top of superb food
Exclent restaurant good stake house
Service is terrific and the waiters and waitresses are second to none. Such a welcoming restaurant! Food thoroughly delicious and so beautifully presented. Presentation is everything! A joy to bring friends to your restaurant.
The food and service was exceptional. The dining room was quite noisy however. The General Manager, Ivica Stojanov, was truly impressive. He not only seated us but communicated with us throughout our dinner. He was helping do everything in that room. What a guy! Our waiter Philip also did a great job. The shrimp cocktail is expensive but the shrimp are huge. Steaks were great as was the lobster bisque. Very nice place with valet parking out front.
My very expensive ribeye was ordered medium came very well done, which happens and is not a problem. By the time I got my steak dinner was over. My friend shared with me and every bit of food was eAten and I had to take my $70 steak home in a doggy bag. It was not good the next morning. Dry, lots of peppercorns and herbs over done on the meat. Couldn’t even eat with eggs.
I was shocked they charged me for the steak when I told them we were finished with dinner. They didn’t offer any form of complementary item. Not dessert or cocktail. The bill was $280 and I didn’t get to experience my
Entrée. Not going back
Our wedding anniversary was well spent at/with Larsen’s.
The service was impeccable The food was outstanding.
Molly, our server, could not have been any sweeter.
Frankly I read several reviews before going and we experienced None of the negative review points.
We loved our experience and feel like we were treated so well that we WANT to return!!!
Thank you Molly. Thank you Ivica.
Our wait person knew all 4 of us were celebrating a birthday, and offered us 4 birthday cakes. We declined; one and 4 spoons was just perfect!
For the Lobster Bisque alone... you must go. Overall a fantastic evening.
Larsen’s steakhouse was a complete disappointment. We went on a Sunday night at 7:15 pm. The restaurant was dead so there really wasn’t much of an ambiance! Which was actually OK with us. . . We ordered the hamachi sushi to start. It was terrible. The hamachi had a mealy texture and tasted as though it had been frozen, defrosted and refrozen and defrosted again. The garnish (sliced avocado and mandarin oranges, I think) was extra salty (not sure why they needed all that salt on a saltwater fish)? I ordered the surf and turf with a dry aged filet. While the meat was definitely tender and cooked properly, the pepper rub was overwhelming and took away from the taste of the meat. The lobster was brushed with butter AND a seasoning that, frankly again, masked the taste of the lobster. My girlfriend ordered lobster and had the same comment. We also ordered broccolini which was sautéed with pepper flakes — again, TOO MUCH PEPPER! We had to send it back and by the time they brought the replacement dish, we were done eating and wanted to leave. Food was overpriced. All in all, a terrible culinary experience (except the young servers did a great job).
Delicious food! The tomahawk wagyu is AMAZING! I don't recommend adding any sauces or lobster tail, as it's delicious just as is! Sides of creamed corn and garlic mash are perfect!
Always an amazing experience at Larsen’s! The staff treats us like VIP! Love love the whole crew!
Great food and service. It is expensive but sometimes you have to treat yourself.
Celebrating our anniversary, the staff went above expectations to make our evening special. I found the food cooked either over or under. But you gotta love their wine selection. Our server was awesome!
Had dinner on a quiet Sunday night. Had our choice of table. Service was quick and efficient. Dinner was well prepared, especially the steak which we shared. I thought the side dishes (mushroom, baked potato) were good but a bit overpriced. But all in all we left satisfied and will return.
