Our goal at Insalata's has always been to bring luscious Mediterranean food, gracious service and a warm atmosphere to our diners. For over 20 years we have shared this experience of intimate dining and joyful celebrations in a variety of ways. First and foremost as a fine dining restaurant with our beautiful private Siena room in which to sit and relax and enjoy a meal. We also offer take out dining for those days when time is of the essence, or catered affairs where we bring great food and staff into your home or venue. Our guests have become family and we have grown together in the community in which we all live and work. Everyone at Insalata's is extremely proud to be a part of this extended "village" family.

Mother's Day Menus & Specials
Mother's Day Brunch is a special 2-course prix fixe menu with treats to go. $42 for adults and $25 for children under 10 years of age. 72 hours cancellation policy for this day and fee is $25 per person.
I love Insalata's and have been going for years. It's consistently delicious and a wonderful experience. I was a bit disappointed to see that they are requiring a credit card to make a reservation. And that you are charged $50 if you cancel. It's unfortunate that a local restaurant in our community feels the need to do this. Other than this, the experience was superb. Great service by the way.
Enselatas has always been a wonderful place to dine. It is especially when you are celebrating a special occasion they go the extra mile.
A fabulous dinner. Each entree was delicious. The service was excellent.
It felt great to be dining indoors again. The tables were spaced out appropriately and the service was excellent. The food was delicious as always.
We had a wonderful dinner of Lamb Kabob - cooked perfectly and served with a yogurt
cilantro pine nut sauce to die for. Soup was fantastic as was the dessert.
Waiter, calm, cool and extremely helpful. We split everything and sometimes waiters
can be very snooty about that. We end up spending as much as any other two people,
we just like to taste test several items that sound good. Fun evening in spite of the
time restriction which I am sure will end soon.
This was a celebration dinner for us -- partly that we could safely eat inside! The timing was such that there were not many customers so it was especially quiet and service couldn't have been better. Food and drink were excellent. Insalata is always a good bet, but right now, it's amazing -- especially after so many months of home cooking!
Exceptional meal. Friendly service. Took a bit long to deliver entree but we were having a good time and only noticed a little. No music or any ambient noise inside and fairly empty during covid so a little too quiet maybe but we made enough noise to compensate. peeked at the outdoor patio set up and it looked nice.
Easter dinner with the kids: fabulous food and service as always
We were excited for our party of 3 to enjoy the Easter prix fixe brunch at $42 per person. The offer bragged about a 1st course of Brunch "sweet offerings of hot cross buns, and morning glory muffins" note the plural of each sweet. and a "SUMPTUOUS" seasonal fresh fruit PLATTER" . This was to be part one of a two course brunch (plus a little to go box of 3 cookies as a bonus" the second course was an entree which actually was pretty good though my salmon tasted mushy. We were upset with the false advertising about the first "course". We were presented with and restricted to 3 tiny sweets total for our three $42 charges- yes one mini bun, one scone, one muffin for all three of us- no seconds allowed they said- we cut them into 3 parts to share. The sumptuous fruit "platter" was a 3 inch by 4 inch plate with, I kid you not- one strawberry cut three ways, 3 single blueberries, 3 tiny mango slices, and 3 single raspberries-TO SHARE AMONG THE THREE OF US. That was it- I was incredulous. We commented but the staff said they were restricted from giving us any more. It pretty much spoiled the day because we just felt cheated. Beautiful place of course and happy to be out in fine dining on Easter but just wasn't worth the $200 total for the above plus 2 ice teas and a spritzer.
Excellent prix-fix Easter lunch! Food was interesting, tasty, and very well presented.
Always a great spot! Great food and friendly and able service. We have come back time and again ever since Heidi opened years ago.
Their outside patio is perfect. Carpeted, heaters, tables well spaced. Food is always great! And service with smiles....
The crispy artichoke appetizer was not crispy, except for the snap peas on top, and was generally a bit mono texture and mono flavor. The “medium rare” lamb burger was definitely rare, but tasty. The tuna appetizer was very nice with a balance of crisp, cool, soft, and complimentary flavors. The service was a bit slow on our side. Our candle remained unlit and our server wasn’t around as frequently as the table next to us. Overall good experience.
Always reliable - delicious, flavorful food. Service was very good.
While it’s been awhile since we went to Insalata’s, it is always consistently good. Shared the kampachi appetizer and had the lamb kabob for dinner - both were very flavorful and yummy. Very nice, comfortable, outdoor dining set up with heaters.
Excellent server and lamb meatballs. We missed the eggplant fries.
Stopped for late lunch. Sandwiches were very good and the prices were reasonable for quality. We sat outside next to the street so that was a bit loud at times but overall a very good experience.
We love the food here, and the service is always very attentive. Glad to be able to enjoy indoor dining again.
Angela, Paris and Brent...Thank you again!
What a terrific place to do a gentle re-entry to restaurant dining! The outside area is well-spaced and looks lovely. Fabulous food - the flounder was perfection. Our waiter, Carlo, deserves a halo. The entire staff was fun, very conscientious and safe.
Good all around. We love the menu.
Wonderful experience! Our first get together in over a year; very special
Even though we were the first diners of the evening we were seated at an isolated outdoor table with a huge amount of noise from SFD. We were able to request to move, but it was very weird. The food was ok....
Great to see Eirene and Joe again! First time back for dining since last May. Looking forward to more visits now that we are vaccinated!
Walt & Ellen Cook
This is the favorite gathering spot for three of us to celebrate our respective birthdays. Insalatas has nicely adapted safe distancing. Menu options have changed and are less refined than they once were.
The food was great!
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! Yum! I splurged on a nice meal for my birthday, and was so happy to have an excellent experience with Insalatas!
Excellent service. Excellent COVID protocols. Felt very comfortable dining outdoors. Spacious and nicely designed. Wait staff could not have been nicer. Love the mezze and Mediterranean plates.
It was our Anniversary and had a delightful meal except it took awhile to get water to the table and the heat lamp was out and it was 52 degrees!
Great! Good food, a little cool in the outdoor area, but I think the heater wasn't working well.
Lovely outdoor setting. Great service. Always consistently delicious food.
Excellent food, setting and service. Great cocktails and selection of wines
Insalatas is one of the best restaurants in Marin. It is extremely comfortable outside. Very warm and cozy. Food is better than ever and the service is fantastic. You wont find a better experience.
Everyday becomes special dining here.
Food was excellent
Great meal on Valentine’s Day. But the crab salad felt like it definitely lacked crab otherwise the two main meals were enjoyable. Carlo, the server was very attentive but not overbearing.
We had a wonderful Valentines lunch with excellent food and service!
Insalata's is always excellent - great service, presentation and flavors. Their converted outdoor space is warm, lovely and cozy with proper ventilation during the pandemic. It's always a special meal and feeling at Insalata's!
Food was not as good as in the past. Cioppino was particularly disappointing for $32, lacking essential Cioppino flavor and enough good seafood. Other food items were okay but not up to their usual level. Service was very good. Wine selections were very good
Best patio around! Food, drinks and service as fantastic as ever...loved my cioppino. Highest standards in Covid safety. It doesn’t get any better than this, especially mid-pandemic.
