nice dining atmosphere

Arrived 30 minutes late for reservation. They were able to accommodate us. Food was excellent. Garden Room was warmer than one would expect.

After reading reviews, we chose this restaurant because they said they had a patio with fire pits. That turned out to be a few fire pit/tables (more fire pit than table) in the shade in front of the restaurant adjacent to the parking lot. The restaurant is very dark inside which didn't appeal to us so we sat outside anyway.... More

We've been here before, so I was looking forward to this place. Service was slow. Spinach salad was good. I ordered the fried chicken and it was dry and disappointing. My wife ordered the Kobe burger which was just OK. Combined with the poor service, we won't be back anytime soon.

This is a casual restaurant that always has great food. We bring our kids on the early side but also love to come for date night. $1 oysters from 5-6 cannot be beat. Wine list is affordable and delicious, as are the cocktails.

Three of us enjoyed a nice dinner at Bungalow 44. Food was interesting, service was prompt and friendly. We all had something different, and shared tastes and agreed each dish was excellent. Oysters were a big hit, but so were the main courses. A drink by the firepits out front are a nice way to start the evening. Kids would... More

I just LOVED everything about Bungalow 44. Although it was a sunny day, inside it feels a little like a cozy winter cottage. It's dark, and you can imagine it's fabulous in the middle of January with the fire roaring. Even at early dinner time (5:30-6 pm), the place felt fun and packed. As for the food: I got the... More

This is a local hot spot and great foodery. I had the BEST oysters there the other night ! Nothing on the menu that I wouldn't want, something for everyone. They had the game on when I was there and a table full of children were screaming constantly while the parents ignored them. I did think it would have been... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Marin County. The food is delicious. The service is exceptionally good. The prices are very reasonable when you factor in the top quality food and great service.

Bungalow 44 is a local favorite that is almost always full. They have a wide range of hearty California fare and a superior bar. It is a white table cloth place that you can feel comfortable visiting for almost any occasion. Eating at the kitchen bar is casual and lively. Eating in the main room is more formal but still...

We arrived without reservations (our fault) and sat at the chef's bar. We had a lovely cocktail and shared the flatbread appetizer, which was unique and flavorful. I ordered the braised shortribs and wished I could eat them all. Melt in your mouth delicious! I also had a nice glass of old vine Zinfandel. It was a perfect meal.
