A word from Bungalow 44
Bungalow 44 brings you the city to Mill Valley. Bungalow 44 serves contemporary Californian American food with an edge. Our wood oven grill adds wonderful flavors to our many grilled fish and steaks. Start with our great cocktails at the always fun bar, then enjoy our Heirloom tomato flatbread and more either in the private quiet fireplace room or in the buzz filled main restaurant.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Whether we sit at a table or our favorite corner spot at the bar, Bungalow 44 never disappoints. We consistently get a great drink and a great meal there with dependably good service.Then it's an easy walk around the corner to the movies. Perfect."

  • "Our Friday evening birthday celebration couldn't have started any better than the great food and drinks at Bungalow 44. Our server, Tyler was friendly and attentive. The GM, Ursula was the most gracious and generous hostess. It was the first time that 4 out of the 6 people in my party had ever been and they were so glad I picked it for our dinner. They loved it and said they'd all go back."

  • "The steak tartare is amazing, the short ribs were very good, but not alot of meat when you get only one small rib.. The chocolate "souffle" dessert was disappointing.. a souffle purist would have sent it back as it was nothing more than a pre-cooked cake of sorts. This restaurant is on the LOUD side, so if you are looking for an intimate setting this is not it."

  • "We went to Bungalow 44 for the first time for my partners birthday and fell in love with it! Ambience is nice, quiet, and warm. Our server was nice and efficient but the food was out of this world!! The hamachi crudo was as unique as it was amazing!"

  • "Typical for Marin. Average overall. We frequent this place simply due to proximity but I wouldn't consider this a destination. Why can't Marin Co. do better? Ho-hum, meh..."

  • "The dishes are well prepared and interesting. Every entrée on the menu is appealing. Our server was friendly and knew the menu when we asked about the preparation of one dish"

  • "Bungalow 44 has become a favorite of ours. I love the kicken fried chicken and always order it without the kick. Now, our grandchildren are growing up and it is where they want to go! Always a YUM experience."

  • "I've visited on a fun date night dinner, drinks with friends and a family meal with the kids and Bungalow 44 delivered each time. There is an energetic and festive atmosphere that masks children nicely (and there is a kids menu to keep them happy). I was pleasantly surprised to be asked how I like my salmon (since I do prefer it more moist and under cooked) but it was sadly over done and dry. I'm not really a picky eater and wouldn't normally have been that disappointed but by asking and not delivering it was definitely a let down. My husband enjoyed the filet and my mom liked the kickin' chicken though. The cozy, yet vibrant, atmosphere made up for any disappointment I had with my food selection on this particular evening."

  • "Lot of folks think of Mill Valley as stuffy and pretentious. Forget-About-It. Diverse crowd,from after work locals to older couples. Don't expect the sedate quality of d'Angelo's, yet the Bungalow is inviting, woodsy, warm. Comfort food dishes likes house made fried chicken, burgers etc looked good. We went for the California cuisine choices and were impressed. Grilled calamari was tender and best I've had this side of Firenze; followed by roasted beets with cannelli beans and greens. Never knew I like beets! We finished up by splitting the seared ahi over blue 'rice cakes'. Service was attentive but not fussy. If you don't mind a bit of volume enjoy the Bungalow."

  • "Went there for business Christmas dinner but also eat here regularly, Bartenders are attentive, knowledgable and interesting... Our Favourite appetizers, Tuna Carpaccio, Gnocci and also this last visit the oysters were excellent.... The flatbreads are always very tasty, my favorite entre is the Wild Boar pappardelle , plenty of meat, good meat to pasta ratio....A fun restaurant, great place to eat at the bar or spend more time eating at a table, the servers are always really nice even when the place is packed.... Highly recommended"

  • "It was my wife's birthday and we invited friends. My wife selected this restaurant for the kicking chicken and enjoyed it again. We all enjoyed our food and being in the "extra" room the noise level was just fine."
    Dined on 12/5/2013
  • "It is really loud and busy frequently there but even at 5:45 it was really loud. The hostess really puts us off right from the get go like we are in the wrong place. That is consistent each time we have been. Its really expensive and our service this time was not good. We have had luck there but seems like weekends are the wrong time to go."

  • "We have eating at Bungalow 44 several times, and always enjoyed the food. Unfortunately, our latest visit was not up to par. We ordered the Patron Peppers appetizer, which we have had several times. Usually the peppers are really tasty and moderately spicy. This time the peppers were so hot that our mouths were burning. Our waiter apologized, and noted that he and other staffers had tasted them earlier and agreed they were too hot. Given that, they should have either not served them, or at least should have told us the peppers were particularly hot this time. I ordered the steak frites, which I have had before. The meat was tough and fatty. My wife had the fish special which was somewhat dry and definitely not special."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "My pork loin was great. I think it might have been the best I have had ever. The artichoke appetizer and French fries were great too. However, the tomato sauce on ravioli was way too sweet and the fish in their fish tacos were...not good. Also, I had a server who didn't care about my nut allergy. He served me a salad with nuts---after I specifically told him to take it out and I stated the reason why. Another server took it back and gave me new one. Later, I ordered the chocolate cake with the walnuts on the side for my friend. This time, the whole walnuts were on the side dish... BUT the cake had tons of nuts in it. After the first bite, I was horrified. I didn't have enough to cause allergic reaction. But too close."
    Dined on 12/1/2013
  • "The restaurant is not quite at the level it used to be, which was 4+ stars. The fried chicken is fine, but nothing special. The kale/cabbage slaw is inedible - reminded me of shredded newspaper. Cauliflower soup was good, but hot soup poured in a cold bowl, makes tepid soup. Couldn't get anyone's attention to send it back to heat up. Told the waitress when we got our entrees, and she said she would tell the kitchen, but that was the end of that. The ribeye was good, and our waitress was very helpful in making substitutions due to allergies. Hopefully this restaurant will be back to its better times from the past soon."

  • "Saturday night in the main dining room is NOISY! Hint: If you want to have a conversation at a reasonable level, try to get seated in the adjacent room."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "The food was very good but a bit pricey considering the service was lacking. Some dishes were very moderately priced while the specials listed no price and were very expensive. I don't mind paying a lot for exceptional food plus atmosphere and most importantly service. I did not feel "special" at all at this restaurant and even though we came at a time when it was not busy at all our table was not given much attention. We had to ask for many things and there just wasn't that feel, "We are so glad you stopped by!", that you see at many other establishments."

  • "In a county with limited choices Bungalow 44 is up there with the Buckeye, Poggio, Pico, etc. Food, environment, and service are excellent. Only negative is no large round tables for large group conversation. Rectangular tables for parties of eight do not cut it in a county with the oldest population in California. But great for 1-4 persons."

  • "Got right in with our reservation. Drinks arrived promptly. Requested substitution for a side dish was easily handled. Yummy desserts were hard to choose from. It's not as noisy in the smaller back room. Good ambience."

  • "We always go back bemuse we are never disappointed! Love the friend chicken."
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "I used to enjoy this restaurant. However, on our last visit, we noticed the prices were at least 20% higher, the portions were 50% smaller, the noise was so loud we had to yell to hear each other over the drinking crowd and the cuts of meat were fatty. Moreover, my husband has a health condition where he cannot have carbs. So, when we asked if we could swap out his rice for more vegetables, they said they would have to charge for that (keep in mind, his entree was already $28). AND, to add insult to injury, when his entree arrived, the additional vegetables were nowhere to be found. So sad when yet another restaurant in the already restaurant-poor Marin County goes down the tubes."

  • "We'd never been to Bungalow 44 but decided to try it very early one evening. The service was friendly and prompt. The cocktails were excellent, and there was a good choice of wines. The menu selection would please a range of appetites, though all the choices were fairly expensive. It's hard to think of this place as "kid friendly," unless one limited the meal to a hamburger. As the evening progressed, the place got very noisy, with considerable bar action and an influx of families. I'll make special mention of the staff handling of my credit card which, on departing, I'd I left on our table. Needless to say, this was a worry. But it had been laid away safely, and I was able to recover it from a very polite "Ursela" the very next day."

  • "it was really good. the waitress was very helpful and funny and the service was prompt. i can't say too much about the food because i only had a salad and a drink, but the beet salad was very good. the butterscotch pudding was amazing. the ambiance was nice. overall it was good and the menu looks interesting enough that i will return for a full meal!"

  • "We picked this restaurant based on location alone, not knowing anything about it. We were happily surprised at how delicious everything was. We had salads, steak and short ribs. All superb. Two minor complaints: our cocktail waitress never cracked a smile, and the ribeye comes with a very small potatoe side dish. But these are little quibbles. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "Went with friends who wanted to go there. My wife's salad was tasteless and I had the special grilled cheese sandwich that was soggy. The cheese came from a package. Our friends ordered the short ribs which were pretty good. I ordered the squash soup which was pasty and tasteless. Dessert was likewise lacking flavor. The bignets were spongy and needed tons of sauce and the butterscotch pudding had no flavor. I think my additional complaint was that the food was heavy and there was too much on the plate. HOWEVER, the servers (plural) were a delight and very attentive."
