Great view from the restaurantGreat view from the restaurant - don't know how I lived in Marin all my life and never came here before. I had a good salad and delicious acorn squash soup. My husband really enjoyed his swordfish special. We will be back!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA nice experience, but a bitA nice experience, but a bit too noisy for the level of conversation we desired.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood for FoodiesWe were 5 minutes late for our reservation so they made us wait 15 minutes. This turned out to be a good thing because of time,we ate in the bar. We were there for the food and not the view. Our server was perfect. You could tell she loves people and was a true professional. I don't care if you can memorize the spcials, she was able to make each special sound tasty. Overall the the food was outstanding and was a good value for what we had. I had the day's special, rack of lamb. The wife had sea bass which she said was over the top good. I would have liked to see what the others in the dinning room had.
I would come here again when I am in the area4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's nice to dine and notIt's nice to dine and not be disappointed. Fish special is always "special". They will split things for you so that you can share with a friend.
Drinks and service are wonderful!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant with a 10 mile viewThe Hilltop 1892 has been through many changes over the years. The newest remodel and new ownership has been a long needed change for the restaurant with the incredible view. I had such a great experience on Easter that I will be returning soon. Our waiter Jake was personable, funny, attentive and provided excellent service. All the people in the restaurant on Easter seemed to all thoroughly enjoy working there. The food was very good. I had the poached salmon salad and it was really tasty and the price was reasonable.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBoth had itemd off specialsBoth had itemd off specials for Brunch - Outstanding! Nice view from small deck off the bar, but away from bar noise. All menu items availalble out there.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a pleasant surprise!I was very pleasantly surpassed on this, my first visit. I never even knew The Hilltop was there, until a friend told me about it recently. All the food was spot on! The service was pleasant, and knowledgable, present, but not overbearing. It's nice to have a place in Novato that's upscale, and a nice place to take someone for a birthday lunch or retirement luncheon. They have the perfect sized side room for groups, and for presentations (there was one going on while we were there, and they did not project out to where we sat, bravo!) W'ell be back, especially to lunch, but I can't wait to try dinner at Hilltop.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy group had a wonderful time.My group had a wonderful time. The service was great!
