Lark Creek Blue
Santana Row welcomes a new dining destination this summer with the launch of Lark Creek(R) Blue which opened its doors on August 1, 2012. The restaurant features ocean-fresh seafood, a selection of USDA Prime and grass-fed steaks and a variety of globally-inspired seasonal dishes under the direction of Chef Paul Bruno. Lark Creek Blue is housed in the space formerly held by Yankee Pier, which had its last night of service on Sunday, July 15, 2012. The space has been completely renovated to offer casual, contemporary design with a circular raw bar, open kitchen and ample covered patio seating, perfect for warm summer days and nights.
This is not a seafood house, this is a fast food verson of fish with bad service!
This could be the worst seafood restaurant: This is simple the worst seafood restaturant you can eat at. I love fish for its delicate flavor, texture and healthy values. Leave it to the Yankee pier to overseason it, load it with butter and simply make fish dishes everything they should not be. I love fish with olive oil, light lemon seasonings, and fresh Italian parsley... Forget it here. Loaded with pepper, butter, overcooked, unhealthy pre-prepared sauces and even cheese. You wont find anyone who knows anything about good cuisine either eating here or working there as a chef.
Avoid the Yankee Pier.
Never go to the Yankee Pier at Santana Row!: I will never go back to this place again! Food was terrible and the price was well over what it should have been for the cheep decor. The service was awful, rude and forgetful, 6 people working the floor and we still had to ask 3 times for help, when the store was less then 30% full. The food was really bad, when you spend over $140 for 2 people to eat, I believe you should get some good quality food. After the meal they tried to over charge us, we had to argue with the server and the manager, even after they had to bring over the menu for us to show them they were wrong there was no apology. Please find another place to eat, there is much better seafood in the area, this horrible restaurant, I just can't see the Yankee Pier staying in business too much longer.
I never like to write reviews, but if this saves one person from going thru what we experienced it was worth it. Please spread the word. DO NOT GO TO THE YANKEE PIER!
This place needs to get with it! My girlfriend and I was there on a Friday afternoon. We sat down on the outside patio, after 20 minutes, we only got water. No one other than the water person came by. However, a white couple came about 10 minutes after us, sat three tables from us, received service, water, bread, and even took their orders. For us, Asians, no one even said anything to us. We walked across and ate at the Left Bank, with clear view of the restaurant. Another white couple sat the very same table as we did, and receive service right away! WTF??? This is the Bay Area, get with it people! This time and age...
I was surprised at the poor reviews. Yes, it is overpriced, at least at lunch. I had the Snapper and asked for it Cajun style. It was very good with a side of mashed and mushrooms. The squash soup was outstanding. Service was average but the place is clean and sitting toward the front window was nice. Dessert was not too sweet (berries, pears, with vanilla ice cream) but was the worst part of the meal. Non alcoholic beverage selection was very weak. Overall due to nice setting and good basic food, it eaks out four starts.
I loved this place and will go back. I've been twice over the past few years and both times we had a great experience. Yes, we did have to wait in line a bit last time, but we came on a Friday night. The service was good, not spectacular, but good nonetheless. The food was excellent. Very fresh oyster bar with a great variety. The clam chowder was very flavorful - smooth and complex and didn't overload on the clams. The butterscoth pudding desert melted in my mouth.
I understand that they are doing very well and will be opening another location in Lafayette by December of this year (2007) - looking forward to an easier drive and more great food.
I've been to this casual eatery twice and was moderately satisfied with my seafood choices. The food isn't mind blowing and can be overpriced, but I enjoyed the outside dining area. My Lobster Roll had meaty chunks of lobster tail wedged between a soft, grilled french bread, accompanied by lightly seasoned kettle chips. The crab chowder lacked crab meat but had a flavorful cream base. The highlight of my meal was the free bucket of oyster crackers found on each table.
