Lively tavern/diner with live music the day we visited for dinner. Food was good very tasty and better than other brewery/diners we have been in recently. Beer very good too and service was speedy but relaxed. Atmosphere great and outside seating comfortable. Well worth a visit also seemed popular with the locals always a good sign.

The most recent visit I had here was terrible. Hostess told us it was a five minute wait. so of course we waited. Thirty minutes went by, and there were about 15 OR MORE table open. And we were still waiting! And there was a woman at the bar screaming -and nobody doing anything about it. So had to sit... More

We have beer and wine people in our group and both were pleased with the selections at HopMonk. Great food and I loved the relaxed nature of sitting outside.

HopMonk Tavern is located in the center of Sebastopol and it’s not hard to find. It keeps it status as a tavern legit by offering many terrific beers on the menu (as well as local ciders and plenty of wine.) The restaurant portion of HopMonk is better than you’d think for a tavern, it’s got good food with a slight... More

We came up for a memorial service the night before the service wanted a drink and a snack, ordered drinks, meat and cheese platter, soup and fries, we are use to charcuterie that barely feeds us, this was great and enough for 4. Our waitress Amber was great, saw to it we had the drinks requested, and was able to... More

We visited on our trip to California in July. We sat outside, there was a live band playing in the early evening and the atmosphere was great. The service, food, and beer were also great. I would definitely recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a nice relaxing evening.

A quick review of Hop Monk. We held off on eating dinner at the Peacetown music festival, holding out for a meal at Hop Monk after the fest was over. Got in late, 8:30 or so, was told they were short-staffed so had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. No big deal. We started with the Tavern Samosas,... More

Greasy heavy non interesting Bar food. Their presentation might be OK but the food was boring. Music also is just OK... not so much the talent that comes thru there. I've seen lots of those shows else where and they have been fantastic experiences. I will use Sweetwater in Mill Valley as my bench mark. Although Hop Munk Has all... More

After a beautiful ride in West Sonoma County the Hop monk Tavern is the perfect place to end your ride. Out doors seating. Bike racks and if your lucky live music. Oh and the great beer!!!!!!!
