Awesome lunch, private table for 2, we stayed over 90 minutes, great service.
Wait person did not give his full attention to us until we asked for it. He seemed to want to help everyone at other tables and not us.
I love the Balboa. It has a wonderful atmosphere, great service and delicious, fresh food.
It is a restaurant that is consistent and professional in every way. I have taken many clients here for lunch and they always want to come back. We come for special occasions and dinner with friends. It is peerless and when in Mill Valley, look no further.
Excellent service and comfortable atmosphere.
service was a trainwreck. Server see's waits till I have food in my mouth then asks how I like the food. Then server disappears after entre is served. I tracked server down while i was about to ask another wait-person for my bill for dinner.
Food was good not great at brunch. Huevos Rancheros heavy on black beans, bland. Egg was cooked right on beans , just right and avocado portion was generous. Omelet of the day not very creative, ham and cheese, but the cheese was cheddar. Toast was overdone sourdough chunk. Smashed spuds were flavorful and an interesting concept. Bar service slow and portions in drink when it did arrive were wrong. Waiter not attentive and we had to flag down the hostess to get our check.
Balboa cafe is extremely noisy in the dining area. There are no vegetarian options and I left with an upset stomach that lasted for 24 hours. It is not a place that I would return to.
We had a great date night. This was our first time to Balboa and we will be back
Always the best.
Our stakes were undercooked and we were comped a bottle of wine. Oh well.
