Marinitas is a classy yet informal place. The space is nice, tables are well-spaced and most at some distance from bar, service is excellent - prompt and helpful. Prices moderate - pretty good value. Extensive bar offerings, but house margaritas are very good. Queso fundido appetizer excellent; guacamole smallish but fairly priced. Good chips. The entrees we had, which included... More

Marinitas is a hopping spot on Sir Francis Drake Blvd. in San Anselmo. The bar is well stocked with tequila options and the folks behind the bar are friendly and professional. The menu is tilted a bit towards adults, however there are always families with kids enjoying themselves throughout the restaurant. Whether you want to grab a bite by yourself,... More

This is my second family visit to Marinitas. I asked my friends to bring me here again and I vowed to write a review. Having just read Laura P's review, I am glad that I am writing. I never understand why reviewers can have such dramatically different impressions of the same place but I am here to write that I... More

We have eaten here twice now, and it's time to write a review. We won't be going back. We ordered a shot of top shelf tequila, and got something else being passed off as a top shelf tequila. No way to prove it except the flavor, which is unmistakable. Wow. We ordered fish tacos. The fish tasted like a Mrs.... More

My daughter and I ate here while visiting the area. After a short wait we were shown to our table. I ordered a house margarita which was very good. We shared a fundito cheese dip. It was really good. I ordered the beef tacos and my daughter ordered the fish tacos. Both were excellent. Plenty to fill us up! We... More

Marinitas has been open for a few years now, and has matured into a really good local spot. It is also a great place to take friends from out of town, or just have a nice casual dinner out with friends and family. The house margaritas are fantastic as are the house made chips and salsa. Remember to ask for... More

I enjoy going there off hours to meet friends for a drink and some food. It tends to get crowded and noisy so it's hard to have a dinner with friends you want to conversation with. Pick a table away from the bar if you want it a little quieter.

Terrific Margaritas. The place to go for a drink and a bar bite (try the tiny tacos, yum!) They make some of the best Margaritas I have ever had. A good place to take out of town friends for lunch, though I find it over-priced for dinner. A gathering place for young professionals at cocktail hour. Most entrees I have... More
