Great atmosphere and service. Food was very good but it is a very limited menu. Luckily, we found choices we liked and had a great dining experience there

When you go out to spend your hard earned dollars you are hoping for great service, food and ambiance. The Larchmont hit all three for us. Our friends had eaten here last year and wanted to return and we can understand why. The cheese and meat platters gave a great variety. My husband and I shared both the lamb shoulder... More

My wife and I live in CA away from our family and friends. We decided to spend Thanksgiving in town and set out to find a place to eat. We saw no reason to cook a full Turkey dinner for two. We researched several places and decided on The Larchmont after looking at the menu and the price. We are... More

The Larchmont never seems very busy but early Sunday night is especially quiet, yet comfortable with friendly service. Our staples are the burger, the kale salad and the Brussels sprouts. We tried the baby gem salad most recently which is good if you like dill and pickled vegetables in your salad. This is a reliable neighborhood restaurant.

This was an amazing find. The ambiance as you enter the restaurant feels like you are being welcomed into someone's home. There were 3 of us and we were seated in a cozy table next to the fireplace. The waiter was super helpful, knowledgeable and talked to us about the menu and the chef. Great variety of food choices that... More

I took my friend out for bottomless mimosa brunch. The patio looked beautiful, however, it attracted a lot of heat and we opted to sit inside. The accommodating host, sat us upstairs-- which was not ideal, as the air con aimed the opposite direction. The service was a little slow and robotic. No bread or toast to start, as we... More

We had not dined at the Larchmont in a few years, and we will never wait that long again. They grow many of the greens and herbs in their dishes, and French Grill influence is in every dish. Everything on the menu is great and the dessert amazing. Service is a 10. If it were 5% less expensive i'd rate... More

I visited The Larchmont for dinner based purely on the reviews I had read. We were very warmly greeted & seated on time for our reservation. The most knowledgable & friendly server took great care of us right away. We followed his lead on house specialities (although I'm sure everything is well deserving of being on their menu), and enjoyed... More

I visited The Larchmont with friends and was so pleasantly surprised! Situated behind a wall of shrubs, The Larchmont appears to be a large house, but is a split level restaurant. The interior is clean white with moderate decorations. It's light and airy, not overly "modern". The food was outstanding. We started with the crudo - which, infused with lemon... More
