    If you love French food and you love boats, you'll enjoy Le Garage. We liked everything: the charcuterie starter, and the chick pea fries, the salad with french plums and bacon-wrapped figs, and the black cod. Will definitely go back again and bring friends.

    When I'm at Le Garage I feel like I'm on vacation in the Med. It is a Sausalito favorite of mine. The food is super fresh (the nicose salad for lunch is always good), healthy french/american and they have the best bread in the Bay Area IMHO. The waitstaff is knowledgeable, energetic and super professional. I've never had less than a perfect experience at this restaurant. And looking out at the various super-yachts that come from all over the world is always fun too.

    Long & short- our order apparently got lost in the pass and never got cooked. So as tables after us were served and paid, our food was nowhere to be seen- or was our server! On several occasions we had to wave down other servers to get us more sparkling water(we spend more on that than many do on wine). The food- it was delicious- for the most part. My frites of the steak frites, were cold and soggy. They tasted like they died sitting in the pass. My steak was killer, but the damage was done. If you make a mistake, fix it PERFECTLY. The server then blamed the kitchen. C'mon man, no excuses. Just fix it, apologize, comp some beverages as a gesture (which he did only after we asked) and save the service with grace. Disappointed.

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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.
