Beer-garden is great!

We had a wonderful meal at Hopmonk Tavern. We went to wine country with our 10 yr old GSD, Chili. Hopmonk won our biz b/c they allow doggies in the beer garden around back. But we'll return b/c the fish & chips were fantastic and I love Death & Taxes (not the real things but the beer). It's... read more

Hopmonk is consistently the best restaurant you will find in Sebastopol. Their staff is ably guided by the GM, Bill DeCarli, a genial, attentive musical genius who also happens to know what running a class establishment is all about. They have a stable and world class group of bartenders and wait staff, the head Chef has an eclectic and adventurous... More

EXTREMELY accomodating - it was so reasonable and delicious at the same time! The venue is really the very best - with a kind staff and thoughtful management who put the guests needs first. My...

We eat at Hopmonk Tavern pretty regularly. Of course, the many different beers are a hit but the outdoor garden is a great place to take out-of-towners where you can sit any day of the year. The food is pretty good and I would highly recommend the sliders and tomato soup.

Went down the street (LITERALLY) from our house and sampled the fare. If the crowds were an indication, then it was good. I was not overwhelmed by anything I had not seen, until we made it into the main venue. The fossilized skeleton was gnarly and the science geek in me cheered.

Sat outside on a lovely day (wish it had been raining though as we need it). Enjoyed a beer, nice roasted beet salad and empanadas.
