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.

Delicious food excellent waiter
Creative, fresh and flavorful food with a middle eastern influence. Can’t wait to return. Delicious!
Transitioning from take to dining in has not been easy for us, yet Insalata has managed to create a friendly and safe environment for diners. The food was the same excellent quality, and service was friendly as always. We will be going back soon!!
So glad to participate in indoor dining with white table cloths, white dinner napkins and great food.
One of the reasons Insalata is one of my favorite dining venues is the service. The wait staff makes you feel welcome and special. I brought a friend along last evening for dinner who was new to the restaurant. She, too, gives it 5 stars.
Absolutely delicious! Food and service (Richard) was top notch. The clams were the best we ever had- the scallops were so fresh and the steak was mouth watering. This restaurant is a NO BRAINER.
Will be back !
Insalata's never fails me. The food and service are outstanding!
Loved the Mezze plate and always love Fattoush! Service was a little slow and inattentive, there were a couple large parties, I guess.
We sat outside, so was a bit windy, conditions out of Insalata's control. Excellent food, wine and service.
The lamb skewer and the salmon were both out of this world, and the Kanpachi Crudo (sort of a poke bowl) was a nice addition to the menu. Maybe it's the post-pandemic high, but the food at Insalatas has never tasted so good.
Delicious food with a lot of variety and excellent service from the waiter.
We were rushed through our meal, taking away plates literally while we were still chewing. I didn’t appear that people were waiting for our table. The appetizers were great. But the mains were just so-so. Maybe it was a bad night getting back to the swing of being open. Not too many patrons, so courses may have just been ready sooner. Or maybe new waitstaff?
Host was rude and treated us with indifference upon entry. Restaurant was empty and the waitress came to our table in 5 minutes asking if we were ready to order. No specials or recommendations. Annoyed and in a rush. Platter was small, but good. Yogurt chicken dry…. Pasta was over cooked. Not sure what the big deal is about this place.
Excellent Mediterranean based food in a very pleasant room. Staff was perfect, always around when needed without hovering.
The lamb on flat bread was excellent, ginger iced tea very good. Dessert choices not so great.
Despite arriving early when they were not busy, the waiter could not find time to take a picture for our special occasion, even though we asked several times.
Outstanding food cooked and seasoned perfectly. Friendly and efficient but laid back service. Will definitely return.
They offer a limited menu and no gluten free substitutes for wheat pasta in their several pasta dishes or gluten free bread for their sandwiches or for their Middle Eastern salads. It is a real short coming of this restaurant.
We ate inside this visit. Tables well spaced, wait staff all masked. Even though our wait person said that Instalats has been fully booked since it opened there was no pressure to vacate our table. The food was as always, outstanding.
Outdoor setting was better than I expected.
We had a very good dinner with friends. Everyone like their choice. Servers were friendly and responsive.
Insalata never disappoints. I is a favorite of my friends who travel from San Francisco to dine there for lunch. The food is delicious, the staff, gracious, courteous, and prompt. My favorite: grilled lamb on flatbread with salad.
excellent service. good hummus for a vegetarian--I enjoyed it.
The coffee is high quality and the dessert was awesome.
The food was mediocre and not up to their past quality. The service was terrible. We were one of the first outdoor diners and it took forever for the waitress to get to us. Took forever to get fries and another ten minutes to get ketchup. I decided I wanted wine after the food arrived and she never came back to ask how the food was so I never ordered wine. Took forever to get bill and I had to take the card to the hostess because again…it took forever for the card to be picked up.
Sorry to pan a restaurant when they were finally opened but this was an anniversary lunch and it only got busy when we finished our meal. They have lost an old customer.
Sat out on the patio which I hope they’ll
As a vegeterian it can be challenging but my dinner last night was outstanding!
Always full flavors....outstanding service. My guest was vegetarian and he thoroughly enjoyed the selection and taste.
The food, cocktails and ambiance were all fabulous!! We celebrated my daughter's birthday with a Mother/Daughter lunch and everything was fabulous. Our delightful server was friendly and attentive and she provided the best service! We sat outdoors in the patio under the shade of umbrellas. Just a wonderful afternoon all around!!
From the moment we arrived for our reservation, we were greeted by wonderful folks. Beth ordered for us two (!) delicious appetizers (and an anniversary card) that were amazing; the lamb skewer and salmon were fantastic and the scrumptious carrot cake arrived with a "Happy Anniversary" decoration. The Manhattans were perfect. Our wait person was fantastic. Your staff is very aware of its customers needs, but not annoyingly so. The ambience was perfect. We could hear music and voices and an occasional pan (loved that) in the background - ALL were indistinguishable and soft and lovely. AND we felt safe in your restaurant. Thank you for a perfect anniversary dinner!
Our first time at Insalata and we know it will be a frequently visited favorite restaurant. All the food was delicious, and we tried a lot of different things. Service was excellent, with a sense of humor thrown in. The outdoor setting was perfect, the only noise came when some ambulances raced by with sirens blaring, but it was short-lived.
Love Insalatas but the road noise level outside can be a bit much and last evening the service was subpar (slow, took 3-4 asks before getting water, drinks to too long to be served). The food was, as ususal, absolutely wonderful.
Wonderful! Food and service are extraordinary!
Food and waitstaff were amazing but took 45 min to be seated despite having r
We had a wonderful dinner. All of our meals and appetizers were delicious as well as the rhubarb crisp for dessert. This is one of our favorite spots in Marin.
Food service great but front far right
Outside seating would benefit from better barrier for wind and traffic..
We had a fabulous meal & the service was excellent. Will definitely dine here again!
I love Insalatas. The food is wonderful and really creative. Great team and service, wine list and cocktails! Always a treat to go there for dinner (or grab something to go in their deli!)
Insalata offers an interesting and varied menu of fresh ingredients, very pleasant outdoor dining with both umbrellas and heaters as weather warrants.
The food is just hands down outstanding! We are so lucky to have this GEM in Marin... thank you Insalatas!!!
Red wine that was served was cold out of a fridge not room temp. Also the Carrot cake was dry. Eggplant fries were delicious,
Beautiful restaurant! First time there to celebrate a BD. Interesting, delicious food. Our server was quite charming, but we sat there for at least 15 minutes before he greeted us. Food brought hot by helper, but server slow to check in. Maybe he was covering the whole restaurant and it was surprisingly busy for a Monday night. When he was there, he was quite engaging. Bill came to $270 for 4 with wine (1 bottle) and tip which is high for me. Will definitely return, but probably mostly for special occasions. Too expensive for regular dining.
