Food and restaurants in Larkspur

Top restaurants

American Restaurant
“For a nice dinner out, we highly recommend this restaurant. They make fresh risotto of the day every half hour. If you would like a slightly more casual feel, the pizzeria next door is excellent but is small and does not take reservations.”

French Restaurant
“The onion soup, the pate, the cone of pomme frites, the hamburger, the steak tartare, the fondue, the trout almondine, the niçoise and lyonnaise salads, the beef bourguignon, the profiteroles! Great bar scene with both early and late happy hours. Patio is perfect when the weather is nice. Continuous service during that lull between lunch and dinner everywhere else. We love that we can grab a bite at 3:30pm!”
