Great drinks, outstanding service, and terrific atmosphere. Food portions were a little small, but very tasty.
The restaurant has done a good job in blocking their patio diners from shoppers walking by in the shopping center main walkway It also blocks out the weather. Always great Italian food.
It had been years since I'd had a meal at Il Fornaio when I took my friend there for her birthday 12/2. The restaurant has done everything it can to make diners feel safe; we sat outside with other diners far away. I felt very safe. The food was delicious! A basket of wonderful bread came right away, and a saucer of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Our salads were also most delicious, abundant, lightly dressed, creatively combined.
My only concern was the bill: for two people, two salads, one plain one with chicken, nothing else at all, the final check with tip was $40. Is this usual Marin lunch prices, or is this a Covid price? I eat out infrequently, so am not a judge.
Support IlFornaio, the food is consistently good and the staff is working hard to make customers feel welcome. The outdoor patio is well heated and comfortable.
The waiter was so great and the food was amazing definitely recommend!
Our lunch was fantastic! I am hoping to get my 100 points for it - when I tried to sign up for the points, I was told it was unavailable, as it has been for the last 3 lunches I have had there. Don't understand. Any thoughts?
Lovely covered outdoor patio on a very rainy day. The service was gracious and attentive and the food was delicious. I also felt their COVID protocols were strong and that was reassuring.
The service is always warm and friendly. Salads and pastas are delicious.
Every 2 months, I will meet a friend for dinner here. We have never been disappointed in the service or quality of the food! They offer outdoor dining, or outdoor patio dining, or inside dining. Any of these choices have well spaced out tables.
The only drawback to our dinner was service. The waiter seemed scattered, kept trying to rush us, and did not tell us about the specials (we had to ask). Although we ordered salads, he forgot to bring them. So dinner came and we told the waiter to forget the salads. In general, he was not very attentive. The food was fine.
I have been dining at Il Fornaio in Corte Madera for years and the ambience and quality of food and service is consistent. In the time of Covid 19 it was delightful to sit in comfort and eat my main meal at noontime with a friend. The menu is varied, but it isn't cheap to dine out anymore. For a special occasion in central Marin, this is wonderful.
Our lunch was a reunion of two old college friends who hadn't seen each other for nearly 50 years. Morgan was our server and we explained we were going to be there for a while. He politely and appropriately checked in along the way and we ended up at the table for nearly three hours. Couldn't have asked for better service, better food and a more pleasant ambiance.
After having our appetizers, my husband and I waited almost an hour to get our entrees. There was an error made by our server or perhaps at the kitchen. Puzzling, since there were only a few guests at the restaurant.
Halloween night, dinner with husband and our two grown children. Service was great. Food was delicious. Outdoors with a space heater nearby. Definitely recommend!
I've always been a fan of Il Fornaio and this meal didn't disappoint. Lunch on their extended patio was very pleasant, the service was great and the food was very good.
Our wait person was excellent, the setting pretty sitting outside next to boxes plants and the food was good.
Seated in the patio area which was quiet and lovely. Service was great and the food was excellent.
Il Fornaio is always consistently excellent and delicious--we have it in our minds as the go to whenever we want Italian, and we are Italian!
Nice ambience, great service, and food is consistently good.
Never disappointed with the pasta. I usually get the carpaccio and a nice wine.
Il Fornaio-Corte Madera never disappoints. Food, service and ambiance are always excellent.
Most cozy patio dining experience .The service and quality of food really worth the price.
Decent food. Waiter was busy.
Nice to eat inside again
Delicious food, really nice staff. The patio is perfect.
Really lovely experience...the food, the cocktails, the wine, the service and just being there again! Fantastico!
The food was wonderful as always. We ate outside and the atmosphere was nice. The waiter forgot to bring our party our utensils/silverware and napkins and he had already served our food and needed to be reminded. This also happen to us last time we ate here a couple of weeks ago. Its perhaps a function of having the dining area outside and out of eyesight.
Our server was very rushed and took very little time to explained the special.
Excellent! Wonderful dinner and experience.
Food really good. Nice staff. Plenty of room inside.
We dined out on the patio, and it was lovely. Food and service were both very good. The employees could not have been nicer.
It was our anniversary of when we were married in Rome so Il Fornaio seemed perfect. Food was good but not great, as it always used to be. Oh, and their bread, which was always OVER THE TOP wonderful and warm, was disappointing at best. I know they have cut back due to COVID, but it seems like they gave up on what made them special.
Great food and service! Outdoor seating was nice too.
Amazing always but dealing with Covid even better then most. Feels like home (if home served you amazing food and service ).
It was delightful
Great place to eat outside/socially distanced during COVID. Food was fabulous as ususal.
Always a pleasure to eat here - a tradition with us when we are in the area. Missed the spinach salad from the regular menu - and also the option to sit inside - hopefully not too long till back to normal! Thanks for great service and yummy bread!!
Enjoyed a very pleasant dinning experience on a Saturday evening. The Manager is awesome.
