Why We Like This Place

The Tavern at Lark Creek, one of the most popular restaurants in the Bay Area, is a delightful place for a wedding or reception. Built in 1888, this former Victorian country home is nestled in a grove of redwoods, next to a flowing creek. Sunlight filters through trees and windows, warming the tables in the Main Dining Room. Overhead, an enormous skylight creates an open, airy ambiance. Muted colors, rich wood paneling and rotating exhibits of original art complete the tasteful interior. Outdoors, the Creekside Patio is perfect for a romantic outdoor ceremony, and the formal front garden with fountain provides a lovely backdrop for photographs.

The Tavern at Lark Creek has received national acclaim as well as local restaurant awards, and we have found the food here to be some of the best we’ve ever tasted. Note that the special events manager is available to coordinate all aspects of your party, including rehearsal, ceremony and reception. Add to that the outstanding atmosphere and you’ll understand why your wedding celebration here will receive rave reviews.
