Guaymas is not what it used to be. Not sure if they're under different management from 5 years ago but they've lost quality. some of the food was bland, the guacamole lacked seasoning, the pico de gallo had wilted cilantro, the tacos were served with cold tortillas, the michelada is a beer with bloody mary mix, they've lost their authenticity while the price suggests 4 star quality. Felt like they were catering to a Marin County clientele with deeper pockets who didn't mind surburban chain restaurant food.

Great spot that we went to an a whim for Sunday lunch. Casual setting, lots of seating right on the waterfront and a delicious menu. The service was great although it did take a bit longer than expected for our order to come to the table, considering it was pretty slow when we were there. Also they have a lot of pigeons hanging around who are way too comfortable hopping on tables to eat scraps of food as soon as you step away...

Took our server about 10 minutes to come to our table to take our drink order. Chips and salsa was delicious except for the two hairs in the salsa. Poblano was excellent and the chipotle prawns flavor was excellent but were cold. Rice and beans flavorful and hot. The service was very inattentive and the lights were too bright. Its a great location near the water but service and food quality has slipped and unfortunately not in any hurry to return.

I usually love this restaurant. I have gone here a handful of times a year for probably the last 15 years. This is the first time I can say the food wasn't good. My shrimp were almost dehydrated and the sides were flavorless.

Very nice restaurant with good food and good service. The noise level, however, was a big problem. Not the noise from the other patrons but their background music. We asked twice to lower the music but they barely did so and it was annoying. It was still so loud that we had to make an effort to hear one another talk at the table.
Other than that, it's a good restaurant.

I made reservations on Open Table. Arrived to find a table for two outside. Asked if we could have told that is for handicap folks ok. Two seconds later a couple sat down at table neither were handicapped. My friend and I went the hostess and manager and asked why we were not seated there. The manager said nothing a real sap and the hostess a bubble head. I will never go back and have told five friends the experience. Poor way to run a restaurant!!

I’m Mexican so I am very critical about Mexican food. Guaymas’ food was tasty, yet nothing better than other restaurants we frequent. Chips were a bit tough. Not fresh. Guacamole was just mashed avocados. No salt or pepper. I had to add the green salsa and lime juice from my drink to it to get flavor. Chiles en Nogada were excellent! Ceviche was marinated in old, bitter lime juice. Tomatoes were not fresh either. Skin peeling off from sitting so long in the fermented lime juice. The ambiance was perfect! Got to see the Blue Angels show! Prices reflect the location. Freshness was just not there. Day of the week, Saturday early afternoon.

Every time we go to Tiburon, we must stop at Guaymas! My husband loves the burrito and I always get the ceviche and the tortilla soup. Hand, get the bowl instead of the cup of soup because it is so good you will wish you did !!

Group of 6. 5 had beef fajitas that were sizzling and had mounds of vegetables. My enchiladas were very tasty--bits of dried chili peppers in the sauce which meant to me that the sauce was made from scratch. View was lovely--fleet week planes were practicing. Staff attentive and pleasant. I would recommend.

Please see "Private Note to Guaymas" below. Service, very scarce, food came very late, we were actually thinking of leaving the place, many people (waiters) all milling around like not knowing what was what, management should hire a food server designer, someone to update staff on how to treat and engage a customer, at one time there must have been 7 to 10 waiting for plates at the service area by the grill. almost laughable. No one approach us for the food delays, if i didn't call a waiter, not our waiter, for an update on the food, i don't think we would have stayed for dinner. No apologies for the lateness of service, even when there was management staff present.

I had heard good things about Guaymas (don't recall where), but had never dined there. So we thought we'd give it a try before heading to a music event in Tiburon. What a mistake.

Asked for seating indoors or outdoors, we asked for a table indoors - and were seated right next to an open doorway on to their deck. We might have well been outdoors.

We shared a chicken fajitas. The food was less than mediocre - totally bland and tasteless. The wait staff were marginal.

We will not return.

It's a simple no frills Mexican restaurant. The food is average but the service is airways friendly and professional. Great location with views of SF and the bay. Ideal choice for a low-key get together where one can dinner outdoors.

We saw online, you sold tamales, however when we got there you had no tamales.
Table was wobbly hostess had to level it out with a folded card board.
I have had Mexican food at much lower scale restaurants and the food was one hundred percent better at other locations.
Service was not that great either.
You did not have bottled water
The patio area is way to crowded, and the tables are way too small to accommodate all the plates even for a party of two.
Don't plan to return after this bad rxperience.

We've dined here, usually for lunch, four or five times since the late eighties. It was inventive and delicious thirty years ago. The luster seems to diminish on each new visit. On Sunday for our party of seven, service was very good, the food was pretty and tasty, value was average (...no appetizers, a couple of salmon entrees, a burrito, four salads, two beers, two glasses of wine, no desserts---$260), but Guaymas no longer thrilled. And the outdoor patio floor needs a good cleaning and more attention ought to be paid to glassware and utensil cleanliness.

Food is decent. They were great 20 yrs ago, now it seems that they are resting on their laurels. Prices are decent, but not cheap, so definitely expect better and more creative food. Service is attentive, friendly, and helpful. If it were not for the service, this would just be another mediocre taco joint....Chipotle anyone? Take the ferry accross to the Ferry Building and go to Mijita's instead. Guaymas really needs to step up their game.

One of the loveliest places to dine outdoors in Marin. The patio views the dock to Angel Island and the twinkling lights of San Francisco. They provides gentle heaters at night that take off the chill. Nearly every dish I've had here was good. However, this evening I had the Mar y Tierra (skirt steak and shrimp) with sautéed vegetables in a well seasoned fresh tomato sauce. It was incredibly delicious! Highly recommend it for the food, the fantastic views and relaxing patio.

I have been coming here for years with friends from San Francisco because we have loved the food and ambiance. Granted, this time the jack hammers outside were not their fault but definitely started us on a sad note. The menu is changed offering very few choices and the food was mediocre. The service was good but since there was almost no one there (lunch in the summer), a bit over-attentive. Better than not attentive though. We will try Sam's next time. Sorry Guaymas - I wish you had not changed your menu.

We had an excellent meal, on the patio, under gas heaters that allowed us to enjoy a view of the Bay and the San Francisco shoreline. Their Margaritas are first-class. The Mexican cuisine is dressed up with some unique house specialties, and my elderly parents were able to get around easily. The indoor scene was truly hopping on a Saturday evening.
