The wait staff is not trained at their job. The greeter doesn't have a clue on how to great diners. The waiter delivered the wine, provided enough wine for the taster and then filled the other glass. That was the end of the wine service.
Its really sad because the food is quite good but the staff doesn't provide for an enjoyable evening. I must say though that there is one waiter that is fantastic, and you should ask for Gustavo.
Using a Groupon isn't the ideal way to dine ,savor all that this restaurant prepares. None the less, it was good, we knew dishes we liked, portions were good, but as Groupon users, our portions,vegetable array, and a few other details were different than they were in past without Groupon. Service was exceptional, nice overall feeling. We will return, minus a Groupon. It is especially lovely outdoor dining...well staged, sidewalk privacy, umbrellas and lots of energy.
We were over charged by $10 for a cognac and asked our waiter to fix the bill, giving him my cc back with the bill.
He never fixed the bill and “accidentally” kept
my card. We did not notice this until we were home and had to drive back to retrieve the card .
As far as our food, the place has definitely changed, but not for the better. Very small portions and too many different things going on in the entrees- our fish had multiple flavors that did not blend - citrus, and puréed broccoli stood out - weird. The chocolate mouse was lumpy.
It was my husbands birthday, which was both on the reservation note and mentioned on arrival,and not a thing was said or done
Dinner was decent. Nothing spectacular. Service was very good.
I have enjoyed a fine burger here in the past, but had to send my medium rare cheeseburger back for the cheese to be melted. It came back medium and the cheese had practically disappeared. Pretty tasty, but tough to have to keep asking for the basics. My colleague said her fish tacos were OK. It is a shame, because this is a nice location and atmosphere.
Oh, and on top of that, they tried to get us to sit in the back of a nearly empty restaurant.
Christmas morning 2017 our family was excited to meet at the Tiburon Tavern for breakfast. We had booked a reservation on Open table for
our party. Coming from Sonoma county, we were 10 minutes late for our reservation, we called from our car and someone from the restaurant told my wife it would not be a problem.
The eighty year old male host was a bit grumpy and showed us to a bar style table close to the entrance of the restaurant. He seamed to think we were a "walk up". My wife reminded him we had a reservation and we would like a better table which there was an abundance of. The Host would not accommodate us with our request which was disappointing. Our waiter "hurried us" to order and commented to our party that the kitchen staff was irritated that the restaurant was continuing to seat patrons for breakfast? So much for ambiance. Our party was not cared for, the food was a disappointment for Tiburon. We had a expectation of so much more on Christmas.
Chefs have come and gone at this restaurant, but we were pleased with what this chef is doing.
I would encourage people who have drifted away, because of spotty food or service in the past,
to return and give this place a new try.
Beautiful setting outside on the terrace. Nice menu. Service is inconsistent but well-meaning. They used to offer a pre fixed lunch menu which I was sorry to find is no longer available. I will return again.
I would definitely go back again. Great outdoor ambiance. Fun place to hang out with friends.
The noise level was horrible with little children running and screaming around with no parental restraint. The service was extremely slow at all levels. Some food okay but definitely not worth going back for.
