Stark's Steakhouse

Stark's Steakhouse brings classic fare with a modern approach to downtown Santa Rosa's Old Railroad Square. The restaurant's decor blends classic charm and vintage detail with lush fabrics, weathered leather, and two fireplaces in an old brick setting.

Stark's Steakhouse features CAB Certified Prime Angus, grass fed and beef and also features the only in-house dry-aging program in Sonoma County. Cuts of meat include Bone in New York Strip, Rib Eye, American Kobe and Filet Mignon. Keeping with owner/executive chef Mark Stark's "farm to table" philosophy, Stark's Steakhouse also offers a wide selection of "non-steak" dishes that highlight the plethora of fresh, seasonal and local ingredients available in Sonoma County.

"Prime rib was very tasty. the meat should have been warm to hot; it was served at room temperature when it arrived. this is the second time this occurred and that is why I am writing. Next time I shall tell staff that the meat is to be served hot."

"We've lived in Santa Rosa for several years, but never been to Stark's. Went there for a special occasion. No corkage for the first bottles of wine - nice. Nice atmosphere but a little noisy. The place has been around in Santa Rosa for quite a while. However parking was limited on a Wednesday night - not nice. Nice menu with quality beef, seafood and chicken entrees. The only (and a big) problem was that the only "small" beef/steak entree was 10oz - too big. "Prime" choices were way too expensive. "Choice" was just okay. Ala cart and pricey but not worth it. There are other places we'll go for the next special occasion."

"Food especially steak is the best. Unfortunately we (and some friends) have recently on at least the last two trips a big slowdown in service. It's quite noticeable and needs to be fixed. It was so bad for our friends that half their meal was compted."

"Love this place, with few exception... Noise level, tired of higher end restaurants that will not step up and implement dress standards. Please no hats, shorts or I just walked in from the back forty attire. Been hear many times and it's unbeleable that they allow some people in... If you want to be high end and charge upper end prices... Have a standard for your main dining room!!"

"Great steak, although my husband's prime rib was highly over salted. The creamed spinach is the best. Couldn't give a full 5 stars overall due to bartender not being able to get my cocktail right after telling how I wanted it."

"This is billed as a steak and seafood restaurant and known for their delicious meats but 4 out of five of us had seafood and were thrilled! Ahi appetizer always a treat, fried calamari fresh, tender, hot and delicious. Entrees all perfect and the cauliflower and asparagus sides did not disappoint. Nice wines by the glass and delightful desserts. Our waiter was spot on, not too over-bearing or pesky. Was there when we needed him. I have been here several times but for my dining partners this was a first and all were impressed."

"I love going to Stark's any chance I have. Their full menu is amazing! The steak is absolutely to die for. My must haves are the garlic bread, crab tater tots, truffle fires, filet mignon. The happy hour menu is also great. They offer a great selection at a great price. The bar area fills up quickly for happy hour, so getting there right at 3 is important to get a table!"

"Heard from a friend that Starks was the place to go in Sonoma County for a really good steak! So for my 6 year anniversary I took my girlfriend to dinner there and we were more than satisfied. The wine was great and the food was phenomenal! Highly recommend the rib eye and the rosemary yam fries."

"Husband and I went for anniversary dinner date. The food, service and ambience deserve a "10!" Our waitress was fast, efficient and had a great personality, wish I remembered her name! Surf and turf was the best we'd ever had, cauliflower with cheddar cheese bake was delicious, as was the garlicky, buttery bread that came before the meal."

"We love Starks. Both of my sons chose it as their top choice for their birthday dinners. My son has chosen Starks for his 16th, 17th and now 18th birthday dinners. That's a compliment when there are many choices in Sonoma County.
My comment has nothing to do with the food. It is always wonderful.
My husband is suffering from dementia. The restaurant is popular, crowded and noisy. That is ok. But our server did not pick up on the fact that my husband, who is 80, was struggling to focus on the menu to make a choice. He sort of "heckled" him in a rather aggressive manner. I know he was trying to be "up beat" but he mis read the situation. I ultimately just ordered for my husband. I think, in general, waiters might be sensitive to elders when they don't answer quickly. We did wait a LONG time for a waiter to come over and maybe because it was busy, the waiter wan't to get our order in FAST. But it was not comfortable for us, how he behaved.
We did give him a good gratuity as I think he was just clueless. But handling seniors is a bit like handling young children in a restaurant. Thanks for listening.

"I have eaten at steakhouses all over the World and Starks real delivers when it comes to the meat! Their dry aged Ribeye is so wonderfully flavourful and cooked to perfection!
Noise level was pretty annoying though, but we still came back on two consecutive nights... :-)"

"A wonderful meal with fantastic service. Waiter was very knowledgeable about the food and how it was prepped. We had a 5:45 reservation which worked out great because it was early it wasn't as loud. By the time we left it was a louder but it wouldn't keep me away another time because the food and service was so good. Just know what you are walking into if you looking for a quiet dinner spot this is not it unless you go a bit early."

"We have dined at Stark's many times. They are THE "go to" steak place in Santa Rosa. Parking on the street is easy, and the neighborhood is safe enough. The atmosphere is a little low-end, which I can't figure out since the prices are fairly high.
They always seem to have very nice servers and we've never had a bad steak there.
