    Dined on 9/11/2014
    We've been exploring new restaurants in Marin for a few months now, and this was our first visit to A Caprice. After our waiter took our order, we never saw him again during the meal. Someone else brought our salads and entrees, and no one ever offered pepper for the salads, asked if our meal was OK, or even filled our water glasses. The waiter was not particularly busy, and we saw him in the dining room, but I finally had to flag him down for our bill. I even asked him "you are our waiter, aren't you?", because I really wasn't certain. He said he was, in fact, our waiter. Something was amiss. Maybe this place is just for the locals, and they don't like strangers? The food was fine, but I honestly can't imagine going back.

    Caprice is a great spot for a special occasions. The view is outstanding, we had a wonderful table and our waiter was friendly and helpful. My wife and I debated between giving the food two or three stars (she loved the dessert). We decided on two stars, hopefully to send a message to the owners. With better food, Caprice would be one of the most attractive restaurants in the area.

    Can't believe I experienced discrimination against not white person in such a place. The bartender and 3 all white guests around the bar made it impossible for me to get a drink in almost 15 mins. They all had drinks had drinks and didn't allow me to get a drink as we were waiting for out table. Every time I try to get the bartenders attention, he would disappear and as he came back, all three guest took up all the counter space available and blocked me from etting to the bar. The bar tender completely ignored me, it was like they were playing a game to keep me from getting a drink before being seated. The food is great and the views are amazing, they only disappointment I have was the experience. And out table was not ready on time.

    This spot is hard to beat for the view and the ambiance and the service has always been great. Now all that's missing is some stellar food. It's not bad, but it's not any better than what I can make at home and for those prices, I expect more. Nothing on the menu really rocked us and we tried many things. My cocktail tasted more like kool-aid than an 11.00 drink should. Wish I had better things to say, the ocean view is lovely, let's hope the food can catch up. Nothing was bad, just wasn't great.

    Was it the most prolific experience I have ever had? No. But the food was good enough to make me want to check out the rest of the menu, the view of the Golden Gate Bridge from our table couldn't be beat, and the service was very good. They were super busy from the Living Social coupon they had, and you could tell they were stretched thin for front of the house service, but our server had a good attitude and was great to talk to. I'll be going back. No question.

    My husband and I love coming here for a nice romantic dinner But we also love bringing our out-of-town guests here for a special night of looking at the beautiful scenery out the window while dining. There is nothing like it! We have many favorite dishes here. The lamb, the scallops, and the wonderful trio of chocolate for dessert! On Friday night the view of the sales in action is fun to watch. And on Saturday we love the live piano music!

    When I made a reservation for a restaurant in Tiburon that had been around since the 50's and had a great view of the bay, I was expecting something really nice. I was very disappointed! The food was average at best, the waiter was inattentive and the restaurant itself seemed poorly maintained as far as cleanliness. The only thing I will say was that the view of the Bay was gorgeous, so there was that. Other than that, I would never eat there again.

    Beautifully situated on the water in a lovely area. Chose this over Sausalito where we usually go when in San Francisco because we're finding the Sausalito waterfront restaurants need some "refreshing". This place filled the bill. Food was wonderful and ambience great. Wasn't much more time to get to beyond Sausalito and was worth it! We will come again.

    Amazing food....and service was outstanding! However....The six of us sat next to a table with very loud "older" patrons for quite sometime but they finally left. Rest of the evening was fantastic!! We've been going to this amazing restaurant for over 30 years...especially for special occasions.....when we are in the Marin area! It's a "must go" for anyone in SF or Marin areas! It's in the beautiful and quaint little town of Tiburon!

    What a wonderful find. We have eaten in Tiburon several times, but because this restaurant is a bit off the downtown rush, we somehow have missed it. Food was excellent, view unbelievable, and service was very good. Artichoke appetizer was splendid while the main courses were perfect. We can't wait to return.

    Both the Brunch items that consisted of French Toast and an omelet were tasteless and the presentation/plating of each entree was unappealing. The mini mini muffins too were plated poorly and tasteless. The scant amount of fruit ( 2 cubed pieces of pineapple with 4-5 cube pieces of watermelon) did not appear to be fresh nor were they plated in a visually appealing manner.

    Such an excellent way to spend a Sunday. We wanted to escape the heat of Sacramento, so we decided to go to the beautiful city of Tiburon, and have brunch. The Caprice was extemely helpful in accomodating us with a change of reservations from 1:15 to 11:30. From the moment we arrived it was shear enjoyment. There is valet parking and the man handling the parking was plesant and greeted was with a friendly smile and welcomed us to the Caprice. We had a lovely window seat to view all of the beautiful sail boats out for the day. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and assisted us with choices from the menu. I ordered the crab bendict and my husband had the corn beef hash with poached eggs. Both were excellent choices. We will be back.

    Initially, I thought the service was slow in order to allow us to enjoy our glass of champagne. When the glass was almost empty, the waiter returned and asked us if we wanted to order. The food took a long time, too. The check was presented with an 18% gratuity added to the bill. There were 3 of us. It's a great view and quiet. The interior is non-descriptive.

    I took my family to The Caprice last night and we built another outstanding memory there. Our waiter, Jeff, happen to have his family seated close by celebrating his wife's birthday. We all broke into song congratulating her in the most natural, easy way because it felt right. When the food is so good and the service is so good and you've got the Bay with a view of both bridges and Angel Island right outside your window you have to have a good time. If you can't relax with all of that abundance surrounding you, it's your fault. We loved it and we know that you will too. Enjoy!!!!
