Diner Reviews
  • "Basically, this experience was so unpleasant as to be unrepeatable. It's a nice place, conveniently located adjacent to the marina, where we sail in and docked. among the five of us, two enjoyed the food; and NONE enjoyed the experience. We sail to Sausalito frequently and will never again go to Le Garage."

  • "Good service and good food but tables are very (uncomfortably) close together and the noise level is awful. Can't have conversation."

  • "Overall enjoyed our evening - there for a special occasion. A bit disturbed by $25 for corkage, especially since we also bought champagne from them. Food was very good."

  • "Local Sausalitans are thrilled to have Le Garage in the 'hood! Decor and site unique, mouth-watering menu and thoroughly satisfying fo, service superb. A total home run. I wish they had a full bar, though -- only "complaint"."

  • "The three of us had good service here but you can't really hear what people are talking about. Food is ok but small portions for too much money."

  • "The staff was wonderful, helpful, courteous and gracious! The food was a delight, we ate here on a Wed and it seemed to empty out and close early, but it was a weekday in Marin... We really had wonderful assistance with allergies too, and an accommodation when we wanted to change seats. Probably could be more romantic, but the seating doesn't really allow too much closeness and it was rather loud. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, a celebratory Kir Royale and a very delicious meal with gracious staff! Thank you very much!!"

  • "Based on the excellent service, we enjoyed our dinner at Le Garage but we both commented that there was way too much garlic in the food for our tastes."

  • "Great experience dining. It was just too loud. Not sure if anything can be done acoustically, but if there is, it should definitely be attempted. We were entertaining guests visiting from the Boston area and it was way too loud to have a good conversation."

    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I thought the menu promised great things, but the food delivered was average. My "steelhead" salmon tasted like normal (farmed) salmon, not wild. It was also over-cooked. Our waiter seemed annoyed that we took a long time to order, even though we ordered drinks, and said we couldn't have bread until we ordered food."

  • "The restaurant was just way too loud for us. Even as more tables arrived and the noise level increased the restaurant continued to play music. The food was OK -- we were disappointed overall and sad to say will not return."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "I was so upset about the terrible service we got at this restaurant, but when I read other reviews I realized I was not alone and felt better. The weird thing is, after asking 3 DIFFERENT people where our food (1 hour late) and drink refills were (20 minutes late) no one responded & just walked away! I assume to go find out, but they never returned and more oddly, didn't even stay long enough to listen to me finish speaking or say anything like "i'm sorry let me go check.' they literally walked away mid sentence. THREE people. Then we finally get the waitress, I am beside myself at this point, and she does the same thing! no apology ever! The manager (or who I assume is the manager) was one of them. This place is odd and ridiculous."

  • "Was intrigued by the name and that it's a former garage. Our server was very intuitive, knowing when to hover, when to stay away. The grilled steelhead and asparagus were very tasty. Definitely recommend the stuffed squash appetizer. The $70 bottle of Quivera Zinfandel was exquisite. If you're a Baby Boomer or older, the font on the menu is very pretty and pretty difficult to read. Overall - a nice dining experience."

  • "Our evening at Le Garage was a great experience. The food was excellent and the service was good. It is an interesting ambiance. On a Friday night it was a little loud and chaotic. The tables are quite close to each other, which does not offer a very intimate experience. The wine menu was good, but offered no cocktails."

  • "The staff is almost as good as the food! Sorry guy's, your great, but Love the food!"

  • "Le Garage is a little gem, next to Sausalito beach. The food has gotten so much better, more fresh and organic - almost farm to table, especially on vegetables. We ordered Surf & Turf - Beef Tenderloin and Fresh Maine Lobster Tail and Fresh Fettuccini, Massachusetts Dayboat Scallops. They were delicious. We ordered 2011 Chateau de la Gardine Red and it was gorgeous. Overall, we really enjoyed our experience, and would definitely come back again soon."

  • "Great atmosphere and beautiful views of the harbor. The food was presented beautifully, but my tenderloin medallions were tasteless. Our waiter was friendly, but annoyingly told us "bon apetite" about 50 times while playing up his frenchness. Overall not a repeat."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "The goat cheese filled squash blossoms were perfect and the surf 'n' turf was cooked perfectly. The wine recommendation was flawless & service was flawless! Consistently good!"

  • "If this was our first time here,I wouldn't hurry back, but we've been here so many times we will just say that we will certainly give them another oppty. All restaurants can have an off night. Food was bland."

  • "We went to Le Garage not knowing what to expect people we asked re directions all commented, you are really going to enjoy it. And we did superb food first class service and lovely position in a quirky setting. We have never eaten in such a first class garage!! Nice crowd with vibrant atmosphere."

  • "One of my favorite Sausalito spots. Food, ambiance, and staff are all wonderful. Pair that with a warm evening, a bottle of rose, and you have the perfection!"

  • "How can you beat sunset dinner next to the harbor in Sausalito? Amazing food. Loved the stuffed squash flower appetizer! Great wine!"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Nice "hidden" place in Sausalito. Thanks to "Check please!" for revealing this restaurant to us. Simple but comfortable atmosphere at the harbor. Food is very good and nicely presented. Wine list is long enough. Squash blossoms stuffed with goat cheese melting in your mouth! Mussels and duck breasts are yummy! French fries prepared with herbs is so good! Service is very good. Grand merci!"

  • "It really is in a garage - but with great French food. With a view to a yacht harbor. and I mean yacht not boat harbor ."

  • "Another nice stop at Le Garage to meet old friends. We were on time and entered a quiet bistro, but by the time we left things were rocking. Just off the water in Sausolito, the place has a real garage feeling which the owners have played up to with the uniforms. Great place for a conversation with friendly and helpful wait-staff who do not push you to turn over the table. We loved the white burgundy recommended by our waiter (corkage waived on our other bottle) and also loved the charcuterie appetizer. Halibut entrees were great if somewhat diminutive, the steak frites, however was huge. One diner had the veggies pasta option, which was delicious. All this plus cheese for dessert. A great time at Le Garage."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Amazing find. Incredible food. We kinda over did it....beet salad, charcuterie platter, fettuccini with large scallops, duck, chocolate molten cake, bottle of wine and a glass of port. All were excellent! (We did take home half of our dinners) really good service, and, for us, the atmosphere was perfect."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "A little disappointed with the meal. It wasn't as good as all of the previous meals. Mussels are my go-to dish here, but they were overcooked and the broth was watery and needed to be reduced for depth of flavor. The other person had the rib-eye steak and frites with morel sauce. It was lovely. I'd like to think that maybe this was just an off night for the kitchen because I love this restaurant, the staff and the location. Will go back and give it another try."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Always coming here is a treat. The food never ever disappoints with positively fresh ingredients and the je ne sais quoi making every French dish divine from salad dressings or sauces or simple preparations which are distinctive.Wish I remembered to come more often. "

  • "This was my first time at Le Garage. I loved the venue although the noise was a bit surprising. The waiters were lovely. My vegetarian plate (not on the menu) was DELICIOUS and SATISFYING; I was skeptical when I saw it because it was not what I envisioned, but it very well done. My only complaint was the wine prices, and this is what will prevent me from returning. $10, $12, $14 per glass for the basic wines by the glass is inordinately high; I would recommend some more reasonable choices, as well, ($7-$8) -- just a thought! If this changes, we'll be back!"

  • "As a French girl who lives in the USA since 8 month, this dinner at Le Garage was a real taste from my home country ! The mussels marinière were succulent and the duck delightful ! I can't describe the Crème Brulée, such it was sssooooo goood ! The ambiance is class and warm. The view on the marina with the boats is pretty. I had a really good time and it was for me a good occasion to show to my american family how we eat in France. "
