Fairly early evening but with traveling since the early morning we were tired and hungry. Wildfox is 20 steps from the Best Western, where we were staying. A comfortable feeling inside. Waiter was nice. Good choices on the menu: burgers, steaks, pizza, fish and chips (which I had). Wine was good... read more

I sat at the bar and waited for my friend to arrive. It was happy hour so I ordered champagne ($5) and an appetizer. Yum, Yum. The bartender was very good at what she did. After my friend arrived we had dinner. I would highly recommend Wildfox to anyone who wants a great meal and great ambiance!!!

Good food , bar has big screen tvs. Fun place to hang out, nice people . Sometimes they need more bar tenders . Check your bill for drink prices , they're changing over their system . All in all good place .

We have had some really great meals at Wildfox, but we have also had times when the service lacked and the food was only "good". I think you should try it and give it a second chance if you need to - but if they are on it is a really worthwhile meal

We have been to Wildfox so many times and each time enjoyed it. We are not locals but stay at the Best Western Novato Oaks Inn right next door when we travel and always dine at Wildfox or at least enjoy mini bites and a drink at the lounge. This is a very popular place so reservations for dinner are... More

We eat here when we stay at the Best Western Oaks, within walking distance and so convenient. Great bar menu and Bobby will make sure you enjoy your time there and that your libations are to your liking. They have a very good wine menu and we've tasted several wines while enjoying our apps at the bar. Some of our... More

Get the tuna roll! I made it my dinner (it is on the appetizer menu) the first night, and it was delicious. Also, I had the cob salad a different night and it was very filling. Deserts are good, too. Just try it... you'll like it! BTW... if you order it room service to the Best Wester Novato Oaks beware... More

Easy restaurant to get to while traveling. Very busy. Understaffed so service took very long. Friendly but a long wait for our food. But my Asian Steak Salad was a "Ten." My husband's French Dip was a "Seven."

We enjoyed a small meal and some drinks after our wedding last weekend. We were staying at the Best Western so it was nice to be able to walk across the parking lot and not have to drive. The food was fantastic, service was spot on, and drinks were worth every penny. I highly recommend the Wildfox. I would like... More
