We had a sales meeting with more than 30 people at the Wildfox and I was really disappointed. Slow service, the food on the menu was not available, the wine ran out, ... There are definitely better choices in Novato!

We went there for Fathers Day. My sons girlfriend ordered French Dip. It had little spots on the bun. When we turned it over it had green mold underneath.I went to look for the waitress. I found two people who worked there and told them about the bread. To my surprise one of them said "oh, you must be having... More

Spouse, adult son and I enjoyed dinner here twice while staying at the Best Western Novato Oaks, with which it shares a parking lot. First night, I had halibut, son opted for filet mignon, spouse had pork chop. Second night, I had tuna steak, son had half chicken - huge portion, spouse chose short ribs. We all enjoyed our decently... More

I've had almost everything on the menu and it was all great! Great ambiance inside or outside. I love sitting outside by the fire place. The appetizer selection is the outstanding. The roasted brussel sprouts are my favorite. Leave room for the ice cream sundae that comes with roasted marshmallows. Easy to get to right off highway 101 between Marin... More

The Wildfox is a must when visiting the Novato area. My motto was "don't eat where you sleep" but the Wildfox is an exception. Wildfox is the restaurant serving the Best Western Novato but don't hold that against it. "Local" ingredients on a daring menu of comfort food including roasted brussel sprouts with balsamic glaze, almonds, goat cheese… mmmmm…. macaroni... More

We walked in at 9:30 PM and they close at 10. We were greeted warmly, shown to our table, and waited on by a friendly waiter. The food was good and served quickly. We asked for a split plate, since it was late and we did not want too much to eat. They did it for free and it looked... More

Ate here a few times, they seemed to be hit or miss. Their Easter menu items were decent, giant prawn angel hair pasta was great, also their roasted chicken was excellent! They aren't anything to brag about but with this place and burger king being your only options within walking distance to your hotel it will do the trick.
