We love the Funk Zone. As State Street continues to decline, the Funk Zone continues to grow and thrive. The Lark is our favorite restaurant in this area, and one of our favorites in the city and along the Central Coast. It’s a fun place to hang out to drink and to eat — with a great ambiance and a high energy level. We love the decor and enjoy sitting anywhere inside or outside. It’s very popular, so make a reservation. They will try to work in those without reservations but the wait can be long and there isn’t a great place to wait. You can head to the bar, but that’s the hub of this place and it’s usually jammed.
We thoroughly enjoy the food here, and always start with one of their excellent specialty cocktails and a half dozen oysters — some of the best we’ve ever had. The cocktail of choice this time was the La Huerta—very good! On this visit we split the roasted Brussels Sprouts, the White Sea Bass, and the Hanger Steak. Everything was wonderfully prepared and delicious. We finished with coffee and an order of Fritters and ice cream, which we enjoyed.
Our service was very good, albeit a bit harried at times. Our server warmed up and slowed down at the table as our dinner went along.
We will certainly return.
