... and the wait staff clearly loves working there, in part because the chef and owner treat them well. The views are great from all the seats although we have favorites. High quality ingredients, imaginative menu -- and, as a Sausalitan author/speaker I often recommend to conference attendees in S.F. that they ferry or drive over to our love village and get a great view looking back at S.F. and over at Angel Island whilst dining
This is a very cute restaurant with good views and a nice concept. The menu is fairly limited and the food was average in quality and taste. All three in our party had difficulty finding something that looked appealing and what we selected, we were not real pleased with. My husband said the clam chowder was the worst he had ever had, it was thin and had a lot of bacon and little clams. The vegetarian flat bread that I got was not good at all but was one of the only vegetarian friendly items on the menu. The waitress was less than average with an indifferent attitude. Needless to say, I would not recommend this restaurant other than maybe for a drink and a view
The Barrel House: Finally, that spot has the best location in Sausalito, now there is finally a restaurant fitting of it! We had the oysters, so amazing. Everything was good from my modified cocktail to the service. We highly recommend this place, just save a spot for us again next time we are in town!
The best restaurant I have been to so far!
What a food! Absolutely yummy
Service deserves full five starts
The best eating joint in Sausalito
Kudos to the team running the restaurant
We tood the Ferry from San Francisco to Sausalito and enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Barrel House. The service was excellent. Everyone was quite friendly and helpful. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful in making our selections. We started off with a selection of fresh oysters and they were perfect. We shared a Charcuterie platter and cheese platter. This was a very good choice with a couple of unusual but delicious components. The water view is lovely. I would definitely recommend the Barrel House for great food and service.
Great view but food was average. Resotto a bit dry and burger a little greasy. Can forgive with incredible view!
We went to Barrel House for a romantic meal and were not disappointed by either the food or the service.
The view on what was a clear night was spectacular, and the service was friendly and unhurried even though the restaurant was busy.
The menu was excellent, as was the quality of the food, and I will definitely go back to sample some of the other delights.
Got the best table for two in the house to celebrate Monica's birthday!!
Genuine servers Gabriella and Robin were happy and energetic!!
Food was terrific.... Wine - perfect!!
Thank You, Barrel House, for a memorable evening!!
As the title suggests, reay great view of San Francisco from this restaurant. Our waiter was very friendly and knew both the food and the wine list.
The food was very average, with little imagination in its presentation. Sauces were very heavy, just not up to the cost which was priced high.
As a local, I was skeptical after reading critical reviews, plus most restaurants with views located in locales such as Sausalito aren't going to try very hard to impress one-time tourist diners. But my husband likes a view, so we went for dinner on a Saturday evening. I was thoroughly impressed! Every table has a view, the service was impeccable, and the food was delicious. I was impressed with the creative menu, the generous portion size, and the personable, well-trained wait staff. It's an upscale scene, but well worth the additional cost. I will be recommending the Barrel House to both out of town guests and local friends.
