    We really enjoy dining at A Caprice. It is a small restaurant with huge views of San Francisco, Angel Island, and Tiburon. Because it is perched at the water's edge, the water swirls just beneath you. There is a fishing pier right next to the restaurant so it is fun to watch the ongoing activity of the fishermen, and the seals competing for the crabs or fish. The food is good, not outstanding, but good, and the service is friendly and welcoming.

    You don't come here for the food- which is mediocre- but you most definitely come here for the view. Unless you have the misfortune of coming here on a totally fogged out night, the view of The Golden Gate is magnificent. Another plus for those coming from the city, Caprice is a short and stunning walk from the Tiburon Ferry pier.

    Anniversary dinner for my husband and I and we had a lovely table by the window. The asparagus soup was fabulous and the beet salad hit the spot. One of our oysters wasn't to our standards. For dinner we both had lamb chops and they were more medium than medium rare but tasty nonetheless. Caprice is a lovely old time restaurant with great views of the bridge and the city. Good spot for special occassions

    I enjoyed my first time at The Caprise. It was a very nice day on the Marin side and a touch of fog on the City side. My bride started with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and some great bread. Then went share the Boston lettuce salad and then had the linguini with pesto topped with shrimp. the Topper was the two sorbets (peach and strawberry?) with red fruit - strawberries and raspberries. She said her view of Angel Island, the Bay and the City were scrumptious. So big success!

    If not for the delicious food, we would come back just for the breath taking views of San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. The Beef Wellington was melt-in-your-mouth perfect. For a busy Mother's Day, the staff did an amazing job...no waiting, and they were very attentive.

    We had a larger group of 9 and the service, the timing of the food for the whole table, the temperature of the food was all great. We enjoyed the time together and the wait staff as well as the bus boys never seamed to be "in the way" of our dinner and conversations. They were very professional. The view is amazing and unequaled. Many people I know have not been to Caprice but I will gladly tell them to give it a try. Thank you for a lovely Mother's Day!

    We celebrated Mother's Day a day early in order to avoid the crowds but found Caprice to be crowded and loud anyway but thoroughly enjoyed the evening anyway. Food was great, view fantastic, drinks good, staff friendly. Service was slow but probably attributable to the crowd. All good we will definitely return.

    Our evening at Caprice was wonderful. The service was attentive but not overbearing; warm and caring staff. Food was excellent, with a large variety of menu options, all diners were pleased with selections. Desserts also very nice. The bay views were outstanding, and the live piano music was beautiful. We had a very fun evening watching the sunset by the bay, enjoying the view as sailboats passed by and otters played in the water below. Thank you!

    The food was well prepared, service was excellent and views were outstanding. Parking is poor so unless you see parking in the immediate vicinity, valet parking is strongly encouraged. Price was consistent with other restaurants providing the same quality food. Some may consider price a bit high but I think you are getting what you pay for plus you get this great view.

    Just moved to Tiburon from the peninsula where I had not known about this restaurant. The food is expertly prepared, and I am hard to please. I was especially impressed with the freshness and preparation of the fish and the vegetables. I have been there twice (so far) and loved the scallops and the halibut. The artichoke appetizer melts in your mouth. It comes with aioli and a raw julienne of beets which is an unusual but excellent combination. The bread is hot, fresh, addictive. You simply cannot beat the views from every table. Service is attentive but quiet and out of the way as you would expect for gourmet dining, but the dress code is Tiburon casual. It will be my go to restaurant for impressing guests or a nice local night out.

    This was our third time and we look forward to going back. My husband had the pork tenderloins and could not believe that they served the whole strip, the carrots and string beans were so delicious and fresh. They make a wonderful potatoe pancake but the only think that was missing was the apple sauce

    The view of SF is spectacular! The seating is a bit tight and the noise level high. The hostess was gracious and warm. I ordered one of the preset 3 course menu items and my partner ordered the lamb shank. A bit to quickly, our waiter appeared with our salads and entrees, slid all the plates onto the table at once and was uninformed as to who got what. My Weinerscnitzel was dry, the breading cracked and sliding off the meat, the braised cabbage was tasty, the potato pancake bland. My partners lamb shank was tender and flavorful, the lemon mash delicious. In summary, the food was good but not spectacular, the plating was uninspired and the service, well, they could take lessons from the waiters at my local diner! We won't be going back.

    A Caprice has the most spectacular view in Marin County, perhaps in the whole Bay Area. So it wasn't unpleasant when our food and drink orders took a very long time to arrive. My husband loved this wienerschnitzel but my pork tenderloin was unremarkable. We will return for the view on special occasions and with guests from out of town.

    We've eaten at Caprice several times now and the food is fabulous, the view of the bay spectacular. Not sure why the Hostess doesn't give more of a 'welcoming' vibe? The last 2 times dining here, our wait staff 'disappeared' after serving the entree, which is not good if you'd like another glass of wine. It's not an inexpensive restaurant, so we'd expect the staff to be a little more attentive to the guests. After all, they are also part of our dining experience.

    The dining room is small but almost every table has a great view of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Angel Island. The food is expertly prepared and presented. The kitchen is very efficient as there was a minimal wait between courses ordered. The wait staff is efficient and personable. The waiter has been working there for 14 years but is excellent and knows what he is doing. On the Sunday night I was there, he handled the whole dining room with ease and efficiency. One of the nicest dining experiences I've had.

    As we have always found at A Caprice over the years, the food and ambiance were outstanding. We were very disappointed in the wait service; everything arrived in proper order and without delay, but our waiter was devoid of personality, made no suggestions, and offered nothing following the main course: no coffee, no dessert menu….nothing. My recollection is, he didn't even bring the check; only our change of a dollar and coins from our Living Social coupon, and check from Open Table! That issue not withstanding, it was a most enjoyable evening!

    A Caprice is truly a favorite. This quiet Tiburon gem sits above Raccoon Strait, one of the most beautiful spots in the bay area. The food and ambience are top notch, and for those occasions where a less boisterous atmosphere is desired, this is your place. The excellence of the food and service are "givens," and all one needs to do is show up, settle in, and relax.
