The waiters checked on us before we could take our first bite, and took the appetizer plate too soon. The Brussels sprouts were burnt to a crisp. I wasn’t given a steak knife until I asked for one after struggling to cut my tri tip with a regular knife. It wasn’t necessarily an inviting environment and the waiters and hostess wouldn’t rotate their heads in case someone like myself tried to get their attention. Th waitress’s however were quite helpful and kind, they had the type of smile and kindness you can see through their masks. Wouldn’t go back. Not recommend it.

We have dined several times at Larsens, pre-Covid. This was our first visit since early 2020 and it was an unhappy experience. 3 of our party ordered steaks and all 3 complained about the poor quality of the meat - tough and chewy. We’ve always had a good experience before this time. One person in our group had grilled salmon & raved about it. The service was very helpful. When we complained about our steaks, no one offered any type of accommodation. So we’ll try them again based on our good past experiences but we’re a little worried about these guys now.

Everything was great.. Our server was fast and very polite. The only thing I might say, and I have no idea who's side this falls on, the restaurant or OpenTable, but we did specify outside dining and that it was our anniversary on the reservation. They immediately took us inside to seat us... No problem, we decided it was not too crowded and would be safe, but no mention of the anniversary either. Now we didn't really care, but still don't know if that was supposed to mean anything on the reservation or not, maybe we were supposed to get a free small desert or something? Anyway, we gladly bought a desert to go. Just a heads up for whomever cares about such things.

First time eating indoors since the pandemic. We had a new waiter he was great. The food was excellent the pork chop was very juicy and tasty with a delicious chutney that goes with it. Rolls were good as usual the ribeye was delicious although I found it salty. Salad was delicious and of course the stuffed baked potato was also sumptuous

The service was pretty good. The food was not worth what they charged. We had to add salt to pretty much everything. The asparagus side we added to share was, literally, 10 stalks of asparagus and came out cold. My wife’s filet was overdone to what she ordered. The bearnaise sauce was good, but without it my ribeye would have been bland. Overall, it was ok. But we probably won’t be going back unless we’re restricted by location again.

The steaks and chilean sea bass are awesome. The potatoes were cold and my husbands rice and asperagus were cold. Waaaay overpriced for what you get.

We usually have an awesome time at Larsen's Grill - Simi Valley. We especially noticed a real upgrade in the atmosphere, service and food/drink quality when Derrick Roberts was working with the team here...but he's not anymore, and our last visit really disappointed. We were originally escorted to one of the couch/table areas with a non-working fire pit and about a 8 inch space for dining - this would work for cocktails and appetizers, but not for ordering a steak for dinner! We asked to be moved, and were taken to a table in the outside courtyard area, on the outlying edge. The busboy lit the heater, but it ran out of propane after about an hour. Our waiter was nice, but somehow couldn't keep things moving for us. We waited 20 minutes for drinks... appetizer plates and place settings came about 20 minutes later. My husband's martini was not very cold, but we didn't mention it at the time, just wanted to enjoy the night. Our artichoke dip appetizer was given to another table, so it was again a wait for another 20 minutes. We ordered dinner and almost said to cancel the appetizer. We're glad we didn't cancel, because our meals didn't make it to the table until almost two hours had passed. Most everyone's food was good, but my filet mignon was overcooked to the point that I couldn't eat it. Our waiter let us speak with the manager, who was also very nice, but explained that the kitchen was "slammed" and overloaded. They comp'd my dinner, and gave us free desert to-go, which made us feel like they did care. We will try again, and hopefully can report a better experience!

Our server was very friendly and attentive, I think they were doing some kind of promotion to welcome people back and comp'd our dessert. Ribeye was delicious and the swordfish was a hearty portion too.

We had an excellent meal with an attentive server, Trevor. He was awesome and deserves a raise/more shifts.

Loved the butter cake, wedge salad, filet mignon sashimi, crab cakes, artichoke dip, Mac & cheese (very very tasty!!) and loaded baked potato. Oysters were good too but almost every piece had shell fragments. Will def come back again

The prime rib eye and prime filet were fantastic! The chop salad, brussel sprouts, and cream spinach made the dinner over the top! For all the ladies, I recommend the Pretty in Pink cocktail. This is our new favorite place to eat!

Although our steaks were cooked perfectly my meal was less than piping hot, and I have a real thing about that. Larsen’s is the best steakhouse in Simi Valley and basically within 20 miles of here. It makes absolutely no sense that they have taken things off of their happy hour menu, the prime rib sliders are a steady and constant go to but for some reason they’ve taken them off? yeah ambience scored low simply because the place was barely half full. Service as always was excellent. I would guess that Mastro’s in thousand Oaks and Ruth’s Chris in Woodland Hills would be alternate choices if you feel like the drive.

I made a reservation on open table and had the confirmation email. The hostess would deliberately not seat me because I had called earlier and asked for a reservation that she decided they did not have. I informed her that the reservation I was asking for was in fact available through open table and she told me that they would not accept this reservation.
I made the reservation on OT anyway and showed up at my reservation time, I went to check in and the hostess told me she couldn’t find the reservation and that I would have to wait (out of sheer vindictiveness)
I asked for the manager who promptly pulled up my reservation and immediately sat us. The rest of the meal went quite well.
