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

Unusual food with lots of dishes worth sharing. Outstanding risotto, sliders and a nice aubergine dish. Noisy front room with lively bar area but nice and quiet in the back. Blessedly free of music. Service very professional yet friendly. Overall still a winning formula. However, the wine list seems really overpriced.

ok, the reception is not very good and the place is too noisy but the food is delicious. We had avocado bruschetta, tuna, oysters, mini burgers and olive ice cream. Everything was very good. Except the french fries which were disgusting. ( overcook) On Mondays, the corkage is free. I will come back soon.
