This is the first time we went to Wildfox, even though we live in the neighborhood. We opted to have a tapas meal and 2 of us shared the red curried mussels, caesar salad & french onion soup. This was plenty of food and each dish was delicious. The prices were reasonable & this will be our new favorite neighborhood... More

Excellent food and friendly service- Novato doesn't have many restaurants that rival San Francisco's choices- this is definitely one of them. Steaks are fabulous though i think a touch overpriced.. but still very good. Tuna and Bokchoy is an inspiration- decadent but healthy- a rare combination in fine dining. Nice bar- and half priced wine night is always worth a... More

We celebrated my Mom's birthday at the Wildfox. Great food and we even talked with the pastry chef a few days before our dinner and she made a special cake for my Mom. It was wonderful! We sat out on the deck and enjoyed the nice weather.

I've been here twice in the last couple of weeks. First time was a Saturday evening and we sat in the bar. Service was just ok. Felt like they were short a person. I ordered Shrimp Louie. It came with just two shrimp, although they were very big. I didn't care for the capers on the salad-personal preference. Today I... More

We have always been pleased with the quality, presentation, and selection of the menu at Wild Fox. Full bar, wonderful dessert menu (Owner, Debbie, is a pastry chef), and service….all are 5 Star quality in our little town of Novato!

Not many 'finer dining' restaurants in Novato that appeal equally to the executive set and the date night set, but this is one. Outdoor woodsy patio with huge fireplace is very cool, and open kitchen and warm lighting make this place both a happening and busy spot as well as a getaway for the evening for couples. Food much improved... More

This restaurant is consistently good. The menu is varied, yet offers traditional comfort foods with a stylish twist. Their fare is always fresh and well presented. The wait staff is well trained and are familiar with the menu and wine list. Wildfox has a pleasant ambience. The restaurant is conveniently located near a freeway exit/entrance.

I've been dining at Wildfox, which is located very conveniently right off a freeway exit, since it opened many years ago. In the interim they've redecorated and redesigned, yet I found the original design and menu perfectly nice and I find the new interior also nice. I think that the menu includes more modestly priced items, but everything I've ever... More

We ate at here when we stayed at BEST WESTERN PLUS Novato Oaks Inn. This restaurant is 50 yards away, the other side of the parking lot. We firstly sat in the bar corner, had some cocktails then proceeded to the dining area. Service was a bit slow because of plenty of customers. Wine list was in a high-tech tablet... More

Stopped in here for a dinner meal while traveling with colleague and we were not disappointed. Lovely atmosphere with outdoor covered seating and fireplace. Inside is very ambient as well. We had the filet Mignon and the pork. Cooked perfectly. Veggies were done perfectly as well. A couple of reasonable priced glasses of wine also. Not the cheapest dinner around... More
