All the food was fresh and seasoned properly. We will come back again.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNovato FavoriteWhenever in the area we always plan on dining at least once at Garden Bistro. The food is fresh and delicious with a Mediterranean flair, and the owner/hostess is a delightful lady always there to welcome her guests. Thank you again for another lovely dinner and evening.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA great Mediterranean find.The food has a great mixture of influence for all over the Mediterranean. It's easy to draw inspirations from such a great area of the world. Italian, Spanish, Greek, Turkish taste all in one menu. There is a great patio outside that is landscaped beautifully.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely lunch in the gardenAfter several visits for dinner (all superb), I went with a friend for lunch. We ordered small plates: the sampler (dolmas, falafel, hummus, etc), fattoush, mussels, grilled vegetables - all fresh, tasty and delicious. The patio is lovely. The service is excellent. This is a quality spot. Enjoy!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, fab service, value mealThis place has been around for a long time, and it seems that they have spruced things up. A friend and I stopped in for a Wednesday evening meal. Both of us really enjoyed our entrees. I usually don't order halibut, but since it was caught that morning, I went with it and was not disappointed. The fish was presented on a bed of delicious grilled veg and the buerre blanc was just right.
We fell in love with our server; she could not have been nicer.
It is an unlikely location on the frontage road in Southern Novato (Ignacio), but worth seeking out.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, and warm attentiveDelicious food, and warm attentive service.

A new favorite!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh and deliciousWonderfully fresh, tasty food in a store front off the freeway. A delightful surprise. Good enough to be a special treat. Affordable enough for frequent visits. Italian, Greek, Spanish - a broad Mediterranean menu. Best paella outside of the beach front in Valencia, Spain.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food TI thought the food was great and reasonably priced for quality and portions. The owners were friendly and cordial. There was a large table and due to the small space made it difficult to hear. After being seated it took a bit long to have our order taken. We will certainly go to this restaurant again and compare our dining experiences.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Friendly, attentiveGreat food. Friendly, attentive service.
