When we walked in the hostess asked to sit in or out. Well we decided inside as the weather was brisk and overcast. The wait would be 15 min yet there were several booths open. After a party of 11 came in the hostess mentioned the wait time and it would be outside but it was covered and heated. I... More

Been wanting to check this popular hot spot for a while. Good location with parking if you get there early enough on a Friday night. Otherwise, there's parking on Main Street. I was looking for gluten free items and chose the risotto. I didn't expect such a large plate of it and I split it with my sister who had... More

We like HopMonk a lot. Great local pub, and very nice variety of menu items for the entire family. One of my favs is the taco trio. The kale salad, sliders, all delicious. Very good selection of beers. A big negative is lack of live music free to customers. We don't Often want to stay much later and pay again... More

The outside decor is aesthetically pleasing! It is perfect for dinner or a special occasion. (I think there was a rehearsal dinner the night we ate there.) The food was also fantastic. We have told a lot of friends about this place and we will definitely go back if we are in that area again.

This was a nice little "bar/tavern" and was obviously a locals favorite as it was pretty busy for a Tuesday night and most people seemed to know each other. Food was good, service was prompt, so it was a good choice not far from our hotel. Menu was not extensive but had some good choices.

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.

Great little place to eat some good food and enjoy a relaxing atmosphere either inside or outside on the patio.

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
