    The inside was "happening" with the Bingo. The outside needs a water feature, more music, more lighting and mores accent lighting to show off the landscaping. If your going to have a TV out there, maybe show something different than what you had on or just remove it. Using it as you music station isn't working. The chicken wings need something. The lemon pizza was excellent. The hummus plate needs a little something. Maybe add some lemons. Also, please discourage the staff from emptying left over water glasses into the landscaping. Need more whimsy outside. Figure it out. The mule was very good.

    LarkResponded on September 18, 2022Thank you for taking the time to review us. We were ticketed by the City of Chicago for playing music outside on our patio this June.We were surprised until they showed us the city law that the only places allowed to play music outside are city buildings.So legally, no business is allowed to have sound outside.Our hummus is made in house with virgin olive oil and garlic, please next time ask for lemon to add to yours.Also for you input on the gardens, it's suppose to be a relaxing environment.

    Was sat at our table, immediately had someone bring water over, then waited for 25 minutes with zero acknowledgement from servers. Both servers in that area passed by the tables around us and asked if they were good. Walked inside to see about moving into a different table all servers were at the bar chatting and laughing. Decided to just leave and go somewhere else.

    LarkResponded on September 12, 2022I would like to start by saying how sorry I am that this happened. It is not the way we do business and I will take immediate action. We strive to be a fun, welcoming environment, but your experience was not anything close. I hope that you would consider visiting us again. Please ask for me Ralph, I am the GM and would like you to have the proper experience and would also like to apologize to you personally. Also can you let me know where you were sitting on this day?.... Thank you.

    We sat outside and it had a nice atmosphere. Service was incredibly slow even though they weren’t that busy. We asked 3 different servers to get my husbands drink and he never got it. We probably wouldn’t go back due to the poor service.

    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.

    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.
