The service was excellent
The service was excellent and always done politely even with special requests. The menu might not sound particularly 'healthy' but the food was prepared that way. We had the Artichoke fritters and they were not oily or overly breaded; pasta was fresh; even the hamburger was done perfectly. Oh, and you can get 'bread on request' - DO IT! It is the best bread I have ever had... Really...

My wife and had a pleasant experience at Bungalow 44. It was my wife's birthday, we had a table in the back room, it was quiet. Also, they comped her cocktail.
I would highly recommend this restaurant to people.
Well done, Bungalow 44 staff.

Came here with my fiance after noticing the sign and lights while walking around the neighborhood the night before. The food was excellent (had steak tartar, pear salad, ahi tuna and rib eye, started with fries too, but should have skipped those, too much food!), our server, Davide, was great and attentive and we had great conversation with him. His recommendations were spot on. Had a perfect little table for two in the corner of a comfy leather booth where we could people watch! Would definitely recommend!

Fantastic Friday Night in Mill Vall
Bungalow 44 is a great place for dinner, appetizers or just a drink. The service was fantastic and the food and drinks were super. Our table choice a full range of the menu for entrees and everyone was happy. thanks

Good food, Nice Setting
We had a very nice meal at Bungalow 44 and I'd be willing to try it again. The setting is nice, tables not too crowded together and moderately noisy. Our waiter was very nice but it was very difficult to understand what he was saying (an odd accent or speech impediment?). Our Brussels Sprout salad was delicious and the kitchen split it for us (since we were sharing it) which was very nice. Of our two entrees, the Chicken was very tasty and well prepared. However, the 2nd entree, the pork chop was a fatty and oddly boney cut of meat that was overcooked and difficult to eat (because of the bones).

We had a wonderful experience at Bungalow 44. The grilled snap pea appetizer was just perfectly done and a good pairing with champagne. My vegetarian entree--spring vegetables sauteed with Thai curry--was one of the best dishes I've had. We'll be back to find out what else this talented and meticulous kitchen staff can do.
5/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Just had to write this!
I have always enjoyed the food here and on my last 3 recent visits it was very good! Our tables have been great as well. The original chicken paillard is back! I had the kicken fried chicken with a kale slaw that is scrumptious! The Sunday special fish tacos are also very tasty. Our servers have all been very nice as well.

Great meal and wonderful service
Enjoyed a lovely relaxed birthday meal here. Amazing service and wonderful ambience. We were there for 2.5 hours and I did not even realize it. Great!
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed everything and will be back soon. Thank you, jimnie

Quality food and great service
We were a group of 8 people and we had a reservation for 8:30pm, although we were there at 7pm and hoping that we might be seated earlier. The place was unusually busy and although there were 2 tables that already paid, tbut neither was leavibg - hey stayed on and on to talk, as a result, the hostess didn't seat us until 9pm! The restaurant was very apologetic and treated us with free tequila shots and dessert. We were given great service, there were plenty if appetizers (pepper poppers, burratta) to hold us over before the dinner. Food is great as always.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food, drinks, & service (christy- you helped make our night a great one!) were all fantastic!

Enjoyed the quiet of the patio
We loved the foodbutthe four of us agreed we would only go back to sit on the patio. The noise level was way too high for us to have a decent conversation in the main dining room. Great drinking space around the bar. Loved all of our dishes, I had the Thai curry and it was spot on in the seasoning.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful meal at Bungalow 44. My husband had the salmon and I had the tuna, delicious! We split the beignets which were amazing. Definately recommend it for dinner!

Thank you! I celebrated my Birthday for dinner on 6/29/13. It was very memorable. The food and service were excellent and the restaurant gave me a fabulous desert on them! I would recommend the restaurant to everyone, and will eat there again for sure.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Bungalow rose to the occasion as usual for a birthday celebration. The food was delicious and our waitress was simply wonderful. The only slightly downside is that it takes awhile to acclimate to the noise level because it is so packed and everyone is having such a good time. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want delicious food, a very nice wine list, and a lively time.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time dining at Bungalow 44, we took our 3 teenage daugthers with us and thourghly enjoyed ourselves. We had a 6pm reservation, the place look fantastiic and the food was outstanding. We'll be back.

Great Neighborhood Restaurant
We've eaten at Bungalow many many times. I have only one complaint. The noise is beyond energetic. There are some people we just can't bring there because of the noise level. My husband and I have dropped by and eaten dinner at the bar by the kitchen and it's actually nice one on one over in that end. The tables...impossible to hear across a booth. Love the food and will return.
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a great evening.
We went there for our 41st anniversary dinner. The food was delicious, especially the ribeye steak. Braised beef ribs were terrific also.
My only disappointment was that I was too full to eat Beignets foe desert. I really wanted them but my stomach did not agree!
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful service 5+ stars
Food was average, some of the best service I have seen! Mac and Cheese and Dessert were excellent, caesar salad was very fishy $30 steak was a little over cooked and lacked much of a kick in flavor. Service again was out of this world...made it worth it
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
A place to go back to
We've eaten heremany times and have always been rewarded with a wonderful meal in a lovely setting. We will eat here again many times in the future.

Great Night Out
The food was spectacular and the service was terific. The waitress made some great suggestions from beverages to dessert. It truely was a great night out eating wonderful food. Makes you want to go back right away.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Well conceived and executed food with a comfort feel and without heaviness. We come here regularly and have never been disappointed. Bar can be raucous Thurs-Sat so ask for a table in the back if conversing with more than the person next to you is a value. On the other hand, the bar is a fun spot to stand or sit! We've had a party here and enjoyed the same high quality in food and service.

The food and service are above
The food and service are above par. The noise level is above "energetic". Mega - decibels do not make a restaurant more fun, lively, give it more "energy" -- they just make it more difficult to talk.
Everything we ate was delicious. The artichoke fritters, heirloom tomato flatbread (so good we ordered a second), kobe/lamb meatballs with mint risotto, special fish (sole).
Not surprising that the food and service are excellent. The restaurant is owned by the same folks that own Buckeye Roadhouse. One of my favorite restaurants.

Mill Valley Special
Bungalow 44's food is delicious (don't miss the fresh baked bread - served only on request). Much of the food is rich, so maybe not an everyday kind of restaurant, but not to be missed. I think Bungalow fits right in with Mill Valley! Keep up the good work. And, our server Kristy was a delight!
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Does not disappoint
I could live on the warm brussels sprouts salad and the mac and cheese! So delish! A party (and some might say "pick-up") atmosphere. Reliable place to go on a date night or with friends.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is always nice when you go to the place for the first time and they treat you as if you are a welcome guest who has been there before.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to Bungalow 44 for a mini-family reunion. The ages in our group went from 27 to 68, and food tastes were vegetarian to meat eaters. Everyone came away very pleased. Save room for dessert....they are to die for!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
great starters and great service!
We really enjoyed Bungalow 44 - lovely setting and absolutely wonderful first courses.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and atmosphere
Loved the food. Appetizers were amazing; try the artichoke fritters (yum). Shaved brussel sprouts salad was delicious, A bit noisy inside because a busy bar, but we asked to be moved to the covered patio area and that was perfect. All five of us enjoyed our entrees as well.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
I go here all the time as it's one of the best restaurants in Marin. Everything we get is usually very good to great and they make excellent cocktails.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A terrific restaurant
Great food, great service. Bar is so busy that if you sit in area close to bar their butts are right in back of you.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM

Our food was tasty, great and innovative appetizers but the menu is very heavy comfort foods. This is not a place for health conscious folks!

Great restaurant for specioccasions
Fabulous food. Quite noisy, but much quieter in
the outside room.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was very friendly
Service was very friendly but not overly solicitous which is appreciated. Menu quite varied-something for all tastes. The poached black cod was fresh, flavorful and generous portioned. Grilled octopus salad was delightful-done just right. Front dining room, where the crowded bar is can be noisy; ask for table in the back dining room where the fireplace is.

First Visit to Bungalow 44
Came here with family for my birthday. Food was delicious and service was equally good. Only snag was getting a salted margarita when I ordered no salt. I tried the Red & White cocktail, a margarita with Fresno chile in it. It was very spicy so be warned. The kickin' fried chicken lived up to its good reputation. Nicely spiced and the light coating was not greasy. Along with the mashed Yukons and kale slaw, the sides were as good as the chicken. Perhaps the kale slaw was even best thing on the plate! The party of 4 split desserts: the butterscotch pudding and bungalow beignets with 2 kinds of dipping sauce, were amazing. Looking forward to coming back soon.

Vibrant Mood & Food
This was our first visit to Bungalow 44 - on a Friday night. Reservation was for 8:45 and the room still was full and buzzing when we arrived. (We came 25 minutes early, got a drink at the bar, and were seated 5 minutes early). Steak tartare was among the best I've ever had. I had to try the Kickin' Fried Chicken since it gets such rave reviews and it did not disappoint. Luckily we saved room for dessert and had the Beignets. Amazing. I can't wait to go back.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always reliably great food and service. Fun setting in beautiful Mill Valley. Great excuse to get out with friends.

Great Food at Bungalow 44
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.

Excellent food and service. Looking forward to our next dinner.

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!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food – but pricey.
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.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always go back bemuse we are never disappointed! Love the friend chicken.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great dinner choice for small group
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.

I always have a great time at Bungalow. Hip, good food and friendly.
