We had a business dinner for 16 here. The food was excellent. The service was slower than expected. All in cost of $200 each with significant wine and apps.

This is a great place to eat with friends and business associates,especially if the are paying! Larkin's is a bit on the expensive side. The food is good, nice wine selection and the location is beautiful. The staff was very attentive and service prompt.
