Italian | Mill Valley, Marin

Everyone in our party on October 19 had a wonderful meal except for my pork chop. It was nearly inedible. Tough and chewy. When I told our waiter, he asked if I would like something else. Since we were headed to the theater I told him we did not have time. The meal still appeared on the bill. I was quite surprised that management did not take the charge off the check. More

We chose Tarla for a pre-theatre dinner. It’s a short walk to the theatre. The menu includes many options. We each ordered different meals and they were all amazing. (Calamari salad, Short rib, ribeye, and lamb) The employees were friendly and attentive. I would recommend Tarla. More

Farm-to-table | Ross, Marin

Marche Aux Fleurs is one of our favorite restaurants in the Marin and probably in the Bay Area! We were celebrating our 42nd anniversary last night and our dinner was absolutely delicious. The ambiance is always pleasing and cozy. The owner Dan greeted us and the maîtresse d’y showed us to our table. Peter our server is a pro and so friendly. And what a memory-I follow a special food plan and he always remembers what I need and what I don’t eat. We both ordered the wonderful chicken Breast dish they offer with vegetables and potatoes. They only had one left so of course my husband offered it to me and he tried the Fried Chicken with Cole Slaw and Cornbread. He said he’d never had such delicious fried chicken! Totally not greasy. And very crisp. He loved the cornbread which had some great combination of honey and butter baked into the bread. My husband always orders the BLT Salad which apparently is very yummy since there wasn’t any left! We were offered their special chocolate extravaganza cake but we passed as we were so satisfied. Peter knows that I can have fresh fruit so that’s what he brought after asking which ones I’d like. And the coffee is great as well! Holly and Dan have done and continue to do a magnificent job in the little town of Ross. Oh and in the Spring and Summer their outdoor patio is like being in Italy. You will love it! More

A real treasure in Tiburon. Warm and elegant decor, the patio is blue, comfortable and intimate space, with a view of the boats. The service is friendly and knowledgeable. The food is very good among our favorites is the Ciopino and the eggplant parmigiana. All their seafood is responsibly caught. More
