We have frequented this restaurant 20+ times over the last 10 years and the food has consistently been great with the specials always something to be considered. The only problem we have had is the efficiency of getting seated (even with reservations), the crowds and level of noise. It can be a "happening" place on some Friday nights which makes... More

I ate here several times during my stay, and had a different meal and different server each time, so feel like I can make a few educated statements - the food is very well prepared, and presented...everything I had was delicious...even in the group meal I partook of, the quality was excellent, and the meal seemed to be served in...

My friend and I sat at the bar because we wanted to check out an event on TV. The bar tender was friendly and helpful. We ordered fried Brussels sprouts, won ton and onion soup. While I thought the onion soup was delicious with the thick cheese crust the soup itself was little salty. However, the Brussels sprout dish was... More

I enjoyed the view inside and the food but was surprised how expensive it was for what you got. It's not somewhere we will go again

Stopped in for a bowl of their French onion soup. This is the best in Marin.The main menu is excellent, with plenty to choose from. Prices are resonable.

Nice people and facilities. Menu items are extensive but breakfast dishes ordered were OK not great. Not a destination spot but fine easy access off freeway if your hungry. Service was prompt and responsive anticipating when we needed more coffee or water. Menu has something for everyone.

I stay in the hotel next to Wildfox - ok it's a BW and not so great but I stay there because of Wildfox. Good parking and I can walk over and sit at the bar which for a lonely business traveler is nice. Food choices are deep and the food is good and well priced. Bartender knows his stuff... More

I thought we give this restaurant another chance as we have not been back in 3 years. We noticed the Wild Fox was under new management and that the food was much better. We were a party of eight and ordered different items, and not one of us like our items or thought it was tasty. My husband and I... More
