Excellent way of trying lots of tastes

Visited this restaurant whilst staying with our son. Staff so helpful and friendly. Food was really excellent. I would highly recommend the risotto - cooked to perfection. Wine was also very good and served well.

We came to have cocktails and sat at the bar; very convivial and neighborly but classy and comfy. The bartender super guys were making cocktails like chemists dropping elixirs or flavors from a shelf of tiny bottles, true alchemists as we began to float in a plethora of tastes and chatter. We add a divine tuna tartare appetizers on rice... More

I absolutely LOVE this restaurant! The risotto, made fresh every half hour, is to DIE for as well as the specialty cocktails. I will never get tired of eating here...The Hen of the Woods mushrooms & Sliders are on the top of my favorites list but the seasonal menu items that are added make it hard to pick a favorite...

Always crowded and tough to get a reservation, but well worth the wait. The food is innovative and delicious, and although they are "small plates" you fill up quickly. They make fresh risotto every 30 minutes and it is perfection. I especially enjoy the "almond wood smoked mcfarland springs trout, crispy potato cake, crushed avocado".

We came here for my birthday dinner and it was my first time. We enjoyed the atmosphere and had the avocado bruschetta (amazing), eggplant parmesan, kale salad, risotto, and lamb chops. All of them were well prepared and delicious. I don't notice it mentioned in other reviews, so I will say that prices are high - very high for Marin.... More

I ate here with some family members just a couple nights ago and enjoyed it very much. There was a short wait before we were sat on the front patio. We all decided to split about 8 plates of apps and sides and salads between three of us. It was a great idea and the perfect amount of food. I... More
