Nice atmosphere, excellent California Cuisine

We met business associates here for dinner on a weekday evening. The place was packed, but they still found us a table in short order. I had the rotisserie chicken which is served with mashed potatoes and a vegetable medley. Very good. Friends had the grilled salmon on a bed of salad which... read more

This establishment offers a good variety of food on their menu, and I've never been disappointed in anything I've ordered. Often, I will only order a variety of appetizers as my meal. The portions of appetizers and entrees are large, so beware. The wine list is complete, and you make your selection off an iPad. Service is very friendly and... More

Yummy food. The fish and chips are fantastic! Beautiful waitresses! Spacious dining. I hate being crammed together where others can overhear your conversation. Clean facility. Friendly staff. Easy parking. Outdoor dining if you choose

Liked the food, the staff were very friendly and treated us like we have been living in the area rather then tourist. Sometimes Marine County can be rather aloof to people who do not fit in with the local culture. It shows in some of the other restaurants we have been to close by our hotel.

Best risotto ever!! Wildfox is a great restaurant, friendly, attentive staff, delicious food and nice ambiance. Highly recommend this restaurant for anyone in the Novato - Petaluma area. Worth the drive.

We were tired, and Wildfox delivers to our hotel, so we ordered in. The dishes arrived on nice plates, under covers, very nicely done. I had ordered a Shrimp Louis, a very old fashioned dish, but I love it. What I got was a lot of lettuce, some nice tomatoes and four or five HUGE and beautifully cooked prawns. The... More

Stopped off for lunch, as it was closest to my hotel and reviews seemed good. Bar makes a great Bloody Mary. I had the salmon Cobb salad which was excellent. Food is a little pricey, but seemed worth it to me. Good service. I would come back again.

Have had great lunches, happy hours and dinners here numerous times. Tonight we had 50+ people for a formal sit down dinner. I was skeptical that a restaurant could pull this off. It was perfect. The wait staff , the food. Everything. WOW. I utterly impressed!

Wildfox is typical California Cuisine. A bit on the pricey side with mixed results. It can be really good, or so so...However the outdoor part is always a winner. Get together with friends, have appetizers and wine and it will be just fine!
