We hosted a rehersal dinner on a Friday night. Since we live in Texas, all the planning was done by phone and e-mail. The events manager, Gina Downing, was great to work with. On Wednesday before the dinner, we sat down with her and went over all the details. The rehearsal dinner exceeded our expectations. The Redwood Deck area was... More

Go for dinner it's a lovely, serene atmosphere and you'll see It's a great place for an event of any size. The food is good, the staff is very friendly, there's plenty of parking and there are several areas for events. Deer Park is also a part of Marin history, having been there as long as I can remember. Everyone... More

There were over 100 people at the wedding we went to, and the facility was able to handle all of us. The food was excellent (lamb chops for me), especially considering how many people were served. The setting is very nice and the staff was organized and helpful.

This location is tucked away within the redwoods and couldn't be a more romantic place. Loved the atmosphere and that there is plenty of parking, which is huge in Fairfax! My entrée was good, the appetizer was excellent and I plan on going back very soon. Highly recommend for parties and for a nice romantic dinner.

Many people pass this place on their way up Bolinas just outside of the downtown. It is set in a grove of redwoods the family planted years ago. Yes you will see deer in the parking lot. There is a terrific outdoor area for weddings and such. Inside, you can sit in or at the bar, especially during the happy... More

I met up with a bunch of old friends who I haven’t seen much in the past 25-30 years to enjoy our classmate’s music. It had been many years since I was at the Villa and I was impressed how they’ve kept the classic nostalgic feel under the redwoods, but recreated the menu. We enjoyed the juicy burger, linguini vongole... More

Amazing! I have been to both brunches, Easter and Mothers day. They graciously accommodated me and greeted me with a mimosa. The setting of this 92 year old legacy is breathtaking. Service was warm and very hospitable. Food was delicious!

We finally made it with relatives. Although we arrived just about end-of-service time, we were nicely accommodated. When asked, the waiter "approved" the wine I asked about and was very right! I had the veal cutlet parmesan and was oh-so-pleasantly surprised! Most I've had were very heavy on the sauce. Not this one! A nice touch with the prosciutto too.... More

Thus was a beautiful venue for an outdoor wedding. The redwoods were a perfect backdrop for a memorable event. Staff quickly transitioned from seating for 180 for service to tables for dinner and space for dancing. Food was excellent as was service. Though the bartender wasn't too skilled on mixed drinks.
