    Server was very prompt and attentive, he gave great drink recommendations and the food arrived fast and exactly as expected. As has been my experience before the pizzas are outstanding. Just a great experience all round.

    Menu is lacking, cant get anything but a Cesar salad? Luckily the pizza is good. Very poor service tonight.

    LarkResponded on August 8, 2022Thank you for taking the time to review us. In order to help us better ourselves could you share more information with me? We have more than a Cesar salad on our menu, we also have a Chicago chopped salad and a Southwestern Salad...wondering why it wasn't showing up on your menu? Also what section of the restaurant were you sitting in or do you remember who your server was?

    There is nothing special about this restaurant. Service was mediocre at best. Go only if you are willing to spend money to be unsatisfied and to spend money just to spend money. We have given this restaurant a few chances but every time it get worse and worse. Disgruntled is the only word that comes close to describing any emotion about this place.

    LarkResponded on August 2, 2022We are so sorry about your experience at Lark. In order to help give the type of service you expect some feed back would be appreciated. Please let us know how we can improve and always ask for the manager on duty if your not receiving what you expect. This could have been avoided.

    My sister and I were visiting from out of town and wanted a chill spot with a bottomless option. The food was amazing, pretty sure I had the best pancakes of my entire life, and they kept the bottomless pouring without even having to say a word!

    Waited over 2 hours for subpar food. The fries were rock hard and not warm at all. The server seemed confused but super sweet about everything. My guess is the kitchen is a hot mess and communication isn’t a strong suit for the chef.

    LarkResponded on July 23, 2022So sorry to hear about your experience. Of course this is not what generally happens at our restaurant. I hope you give us another try. Please always ask for the manager on duty if you feel you aren't getting the proper service and we can make it right for you. Thank you

    Excellent pizza (and that’s what I’d recommend) and fun duck mule cocktails, it’s a Moscow Mule served with a tiny rubber duck. It was the 4th of July weekend so I’m sure she or staff and a busy weekend accounted for it. Still, decent enough service. Definitely glad I booked ahead and requested the patio. It was a gorgeous night and we get far too few of them in Chicago.

    We were initially greeted by two servers and rushed to order immediately. We went several times throughout the “bottomless” brunch without refills at points waiting almost a half hour for someone to refill. After being rushed to order it took the food almost an hour to come out and our steak was severely over cooked, we asked for a medium and it was very well past well done. Our servers didn’t check on us throughout the meal but were very quick to announce our 90 minutes were up and brought the bill. Overall one of the worst experiences I’ve had here.

    I’m going to be very honest here. Pretty annoyed that our party of 2 got Auto-Gratuitied. No mention of an auto grat anywhere on the website or from the server. Had they not added the auto grat we would have tipped way more and in cash, but once we saw the 20% auto grat on our check that’s all they were getting. Again, only a party of 2. Very unsure of why we received an automatic 20% gratuity. Would love some answers. Will update if we hear anything back. Otherwise, won’t be back. That’s unnecessary.

    Drink package is 90 minutes. It took a while to get refills so I feel like this might be on purpose since we are on a timer. Food was good. My biggest regret was taking a recommendation from our server on a margarita. I got two, they were very weak. But, the best part of all, the margarita was $25 EACH! I paid $50 for two margaritas and I am convinced had no alcohol. Overall, I just feel like this was a scam. Drag show was amazing, the rest…. Not so much.

    We went for date night, and it just so happened to be the season finale of Drag Race, so we got to chow on their cheesy breadsticks (12/10), my partner got the Lark Lemon pizza (amazing), and I got the steak frites (perfect). Drinks were great and the atmosphere was perfect. Can’t wait to come back!

    Nashville hot chicken had no other flair other than being overly spicy, very bland and dry. Pancakes were soggy and dense at the same time which boggles my mind. Hash browns were precooked and reheated. Sangria tasted like syrupy overly sweet cranberry juice. Watched servers pick ice out of a bucket with her bare hands to make drinks. Also the host claimed that our reservation was messed up, even though my email said otherwise, and that patio seating was our only option.

    Lark has a lively vibe. TVs are everywhere so if that isn’t what you are looking for, this place isn’t for you. We had great cocktails and their smash burgers are delicious. RuPaul’s Drag Race was showing and the whole vibe was tuned to that which made the night very fun for a night with my college age daughter and her friends. Order one of the many mules that come with a rubber duck as a garnish.
