“Lovely spot and good food”
Review of Farley Bar

Farley Bar
Ranked #24 of 79 Restaurants in Sausalito
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: American
Description: Just like its namesake Farley, the popular San Francisco Chronicle comic-strip character created by the late Phil Frank, Farley Bar is a Bay Area favorite. Understated and relaxing, it offers a small-plate menu, creative cocktails, cozy fireplaces, leather club chairs, and a bar crafted from a fallen tree. Farley Bar's merry mix of lodge guests and locals provides the social heart of Cavallo Point.

“Lovely spot and good food”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

As others have said, Cavallo Point is a stunningly beautiful spot. The views are simply world-class. The Farley Bar has a veranda from which you can enjoy the view, and unlike some view restaurants, the food actually is exceptional. You can order dinner off either the bar menu or the main restaurant menu -- I had a bone marrow app that was the best I've ever had, ordered from the restaurant menu. When we were there on the 4th of July they were a bit overwhelmed by the crowds, but it was a fun scene and the food was excellent.

Small plates, lots of variety, very creative, and very accommodating to those of us with food allergies.

“Great Setting - Tasty food”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

With the Golden Gate bridge in the background, lunch could not have been better. Total relaxation defines this wonderful restaurant. The food was very good and the service excellent. There is no signage so drive to the precise address and park in front of the long porch. Full bar, excellent wine selections, and a historic bar.

“Porch perfection”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

I'd heard about Cavallo Point Lodge for over a year, and despite living close by in SF, this was my first visit. It definitely won't be my last. In fact I already have lunch planned with a girlfriend next week! We went after hike in Marin so it was late afternoon. Perfect time for margaritas and the charcuterie plate. The food & drink were excellent. We did a little tour of the property and I hope to come back and stay as a guest as well.

“Great bloody marys!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

They make great bloody marys here. Perfect for Sunday brunch at Murray Circle which is equally wonderful. Or if you're there just for cocktails, while it gets a bit crowded during happy hour, it's a great place to relax.
