Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I had dinner here just this week and we were pleasantly surprised by the new (to us) menu. The service was great, the food was good and all in all it was a very good experience. There aren't many choices near Marinwood / Lucas Valley/Terra Linda and we will be back for sure."

  • "The beer was flat and sour. The chicken was tough. The corn-on-the-cob was probably frozen repeatedly to make it as bad as it was. The sauces were all sweet (beef rolls, ribs and chicken). The hostess didn't ask what we wanted for seating and tried to shove us into a booth next to the bar while the entire restaurant was very, very empty. The waitress did not offer us the complimentary salad and dessert that was listed on the menu for early diners (we were at our table by 5:35, under the 6 PM mentioned on the menu). She also did not offer us the 50% off special on wine that is supposed to be available on Mondays. I don't think we will be returning to the Wildfox."

  • "The wait staff at Wildfox was very attentive. The restaurant was busy and our waiter made it a point to check in with us to make sure that all was well. Food was great. It seems to have gotten better. Scott in particular always makes us feel welcomed and well cared for. The bar scene seems to spill over into the dining area making it somewhat noisy."

  • "This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Novato area. Love dining on the terrace with the lovely fireplaces and wisteria. The food is really good and I always stay for my favorite dessert - Bundt cake with carmel sauce and home made butter pecan ice cream. Awesome!"

  • "My wife and I had friends in town and we decided to give the Wildfox a try. What a great find, great atmosphere and a warm setting to enjoy dinner with friends. Loved the fair pricing on the mixed drinks and a solid wine list to choose from. The food though was the standout of the evening. AMAZING dishes basically comfort food all dressed up in a tux! Do not miss the double cut pork chop with a bacon infused green apple chutney, wow is an understatement! We will be back to enjoy the Wildfox again!"

  • "I had high hopes for Wildfox. My husband and I had pasta dishes. He had the papadelle and I had the angel hair with shrimp. His dish was very rich and robust with flavor, my dish was really bland, the shrimp were tough and the pasta too al dente. Our service was okay. We were never once asked if we wanted refills on our drinks and most places often offer Parmesan cheese when you order pasta, they didn't. The desserts were delicious. I may go back to try the pizza, but won't be ordering an entree. If you want a good dessert, I definitely recommend it!!"

  • "Love the outdoor patio and fireplace seating.Wish there were more vegetarian options. Server very friendly. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The food is well priced for what you get. My cheeseburger was perfectly cooked and my husbands salmon was very good. Good place for grabbing a bite and having a real drink. Once we were served we never saw our server, Jose again. What ever happened to "How is everything?" or "Can I get you anything else?". His tip reflected his service. Back to school for you Jose. "

  • "When staying in the area we have dinner at Wildfox and we are never disappointed. From gourmet specials to individual pizzas there is something for everyone's taste. This restaurant is a nice find we can always count on."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "The menu was very limited for Mother's Day and over priced. We ordered the prime rib and it was dry the green been tasted very old and woody $40.00 . I watched one of the cooks using the microwave like crazy. Fresh or frozen food? I don't think we will be back. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The Wildfox outdoor seating is not the best lots of bugs flying around. With the nice weather we're going to be having they should fix it up a bit. "

  • "I had the French Onion soup for an appetizer. Fantastic! One of the best you will ever have! Then I had two more appetizers as the main course: brussels sprouts, and pot stickers. Both were superb. The service was good, and the atmosphere is lovely. This is one of the best in Marin!"

  • "Lots of interesting options here - vegetarian, steak, seafood, and more. Our entire party of 4 enjoyed their selection."

  • "We met another couple from Sonoma here since it's half way in between. The waitress was so kind and the food was very good. Both women had the short ribs which were very rich and very good. The men had the risotto and the chicken and both enjoyed their dinners, as well. We ate in the bar and it was quiet and a nice place for us to catch up since we hadn't seen each other for some time. You could actually here the conversation which we liked."

  • "I have had such inconsistent meals at Wildfox. The environment is so nice that I keep trying it again. My last meal, lunch, I ordered the pulled pork sandwich. It was super sweet and had blue cheese mixed in. Way too rich and it tasted like dessert. My table mates ordered risotto with chicken and it was very salty. One of them asked specifically if a dish was spicy and the helpful waitress changed the sauce, but when it came it was VERY spicy. I tried it, thinking my friend might be oversensitive, but no. The waitress was a vegetarian and she was trying to recommend meat dishes. It became clear she hadn't had a lot of what was on the menu. I am sorry to give it a bad review, but they do need to bring in a taste group...or something."

  • "One member of our party had a couple of off menu requests which were accommodated without question in a very gracious manner by our server and chef"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Menu lacked enough fish and vegan dishes. The chef has been doing the same thing for many years and the menu really needs some significant changes and more imagination, but if you want steaks and chops and heavier and predominantly meat-oriented American food, this is a nice place to go. Another problem is that it's hard to find from the freeway. Our waiter was polite and attentive, but he was the exception. My experience here s that the servers are mainly young people with little training and not much interest in the restaurant business and its clients."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The shrimp salad comes with two shrimp for $18.00. We asked the waiter and this is no mistake? How cheap. The bbq ribs were just so-so. The kids mac and cheese was stringy and not mixed well. The kids desert took 15 minutes to come. Used to like it. Not going back. Not recommending to anyone anymore. Bummer..."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The problem here was the food. We had a 6pm booking and it was obvious from the dry fries that they were not fresh. The medium steak I ordered was cremated! Well done and beyond! Root vegetables were good. Very disappointing."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "I've been to Wildfox before and have always found the food to be good. I ordered the organic greens salad and the angel hair pasta with jumbo prawns and enjoyed both dishes. My date ordered the French onion soup and the Petrale sole special, but the waitress came back to our table to inform us that they had run out of the sole and it was only 7:30! The sole was substituted with mahi mahi. It appeared that my date liked her food. The service was mediocre, which is why I gave an overall rating of only good. While the waitress was courteous and friendly, she never brought out bread, which I had to ask for midway through the meal, she didn't come to check on how we liked the food and I ran out of water and needed a busperson to bring it."

  • "Ordered a "bone-in prime rib eye" ; Got a not very good piece of beef. Manager insisted that menu had no prime rib, nor any thing with a bone---until I insisted he produce the menu.(lousy steak had no bone)"

  • "Excellent Happy Hour and Options ... Although the main menu items and wine tempted us more ... Great Great Great waiter1"

  • "My Husband and son had been here before with a large group of racers and have always raved about it. We decided to go here valentines weekend since we were doing a track day at Sonoma. Was just the 4 of us. Food was Very Good but a bit too salty! Service was very good and servers were prompt and courteous. I would definitely go again."

  • "Took my mom, MIL and a friend of my mom's for lunch (MY birthday weekend, go figure). They really enjoyed themselves, and the food was good (we all had sandwiches, except for Auntie Terri who had a bowl of soup). Server was friendly and quick."

  • "We can always count on great food and a quiet enough atmosphere to conduct lunch meetings. And, at a good price for our nonprofit budget."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "* Nice dining area * Excellent service from Gabe, our waiter * Nice wine list * Combination of papadum with salmon and albacore tuna poki style was a nice surprise * Braised short ribs were okay, but uninspiring * My wife enjoyed her giant prawn risotto * Overall, it was nice, but not great - deserving of a solid 3 stars"

  • "FOOD WAS GOOD BUT FOR A HALF EMPTY LUNCH HOUR THE SERVICE WAS LOUSY"
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "There was seven of us. I called early to say we were celebrating a birthday & said they would they would take care of it. I told the waitress again, to remind her, but she either could not hear or did not listen. Our waitress, Crystal, seemed to be going through the motions. Rarely came back to table to check if everything was ok. Most of the entree's were average, brussels sprouts, the steaks, french fries, desserts were good. My ribs were ok, short ribs's sauce was a little salty, but most was just adequate and nothing special. I had hoped for the price and the ambience that the restaurant would have been better. Unfortunately, nothing would make, me, my friends, or family members, want to come back again."

  • "One of the best evenings of service. It is always good, but our server really made our meal better with his great attitude and sense of humor, but terrific serve."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "Decided to give Wildfox another try after a recent experience during which we were seated at a bar table and pretty much forgotten. On that visit we had to flag down other staff to get our check 15 minutes after our table was cleared - one star for service that visit. This time the service was better and the food, especially the soups and delicious lamb shank, was very good. However, their way of having all different staff bring food, drinks, etc., is not working too well. The busboys are great, but above that it seems to fall apart. Not sure if we will return, though might do so for the food."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "On the recommendation from a friend, we retried Wildfox. It is close to the Civic Center where we were going to a show. We went early, but the place was already filling up. Prawns on risotto was good. ( Not to compare with Picco). Spouse had fish and chips that were good. I think it is known for steaks and next time we will try those. Lively bar area, dark wood, decor. Easy parking."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "we had a table by the kitchen area and was traffic, noise, and the ventilation out of control, was blowing in my face. Food was good, the service clearly couldn't handle the crowd and time in between courses too long with no attention from the servers. Didn't see the manager around to check on customers."

  • "We have been eating at Wildfox for years. It is about 3 hours from our home, and we often go there when we are in the area especially for special occasions. Their menu is always changing and improving, and although we miss some of our favorites, like the lamb shanks, their new menu does not disappoint. The Brussels sprouts with balsamic vinegar and goat cheese are to die for - don't miss them! We hope to continue enjoying this fabulous restaurant for many years to come."
