Good food and ambiance. Staff very friendly. Worth the wait. Put your name in and go walk around the cute town. Good wine selection.

The eating on patio overlooking the marina was terrific. The food was all very good and a lot of variety. We had a family of 20 and got great service. I would highly recommend.

The restaurant sits on the harbor with local marina boats surrounding the outdoor deck. Aside from aggressive sea gulls this was a great restaurant sitting on a deck over the water. The food and service were terrific and prices reasonable. Would not hesitate to recommend. Less that a couple of minute walk takes you to a small park with views across the bay of the city of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. Well worth visiting.

Always a sure bet for a great meal and an overpriced hamburger with a million dollar view but only on a sunny day. Quick service a lovely ladies working the deck get you in and out quickly. Why visit Tiburon unless you are going to Sam's!
