Rustic Bakery

Reviewed By ParkMarin - San Francisco, California

This bakery is awesome. I absolutely crave their chicken Cesar salad. Their bakery goods are to die for, and they have Stumptown coffee!! Nice outside seating in good weather. I was last there last month, but it's pretty close to my house so I go often on weekends and the food is consistent.

Marvin's Restaurant

Reviewed By xerxes100 - San Rafael, California

I went there for an early morning breakfast - the small indoor seating area had the typical customer array of workers / regulars / and even a couple of take -out customers.
The waitress was quite skilled balancing all the activity ( she was the only server), polite and attentive. The food was generously proportioned and surprisingly, my omelet was not over cooked, hash browns were a bit on the greasy side though... Coffee was nothing remarkable and tasted like s**t. Odd in this day and age of so many better coffee choices
What ruined it for me was the whistling cook. I hate loud whistlers at the best of times, and especially at 0 dark 30 in the morning. I was on the point of saying something to the server, when he mercifully shut up.
Friendly atmosphere overall and easy to see why there are a steady stream of regulars.

Arun Thai Restaurant

Reviewed By BayAreaM0M - Novato, California

We are admittedly Thai food snobs and don't settle for mediocre Thai food. This place is LEGIT. Don't be fooled by their odd business park location in Bel Marin Keys. Highly recommend Arun if eating Thai in Novato. Favorite dishes include the King Neptune, Basil Chicken, Green and Yellow Curry, Spring rolls. So delicious.

I can't eat grain of any kind (except non-GMO organic corn) so finding a truly delicious bakery that uses almond flour was life-changing for me. I absolutely LOVE the Rustic Lemon Torte, the Rapture (not an over-statement), the Pure Chocolate and the Espresso Chocolate tortes -- all Divine. I got several for my wedding and the guests went wild. Whenever I travel back to Novato, I get at least two to bring back home to my husband. This bakery is truly one-of-a-kind.

We wanted a casual place with nice food with a quiet atmosphere so we could catch up with friends we hadn't seen in years. Boca Pizzaria suited the bill, perfectly. We each ordered a personal size pizza and shared a good bottle of wine, which was reasonably priced. Service was good. We would definitely return if we are ever in the area again.

Located in a mall, this modern, clean, and quiet restaurant is great for breakfast! I had fabulous lemon blueberry pancakes with real maple syrup for $14. The food at neighboring tables looked excellent, too. Service was very good.

We were staying in the BW so this was very convenient. We had made a reservation but they could not find it but were able to seat us. Service was a little slow but not a big deal. Food was good but garlic bread was a little dry.

Hilltop 1892

Reviewed By AMKaja85 - Delafield, Wisconsin

The setting is outstanding, with exceptional views. The food was perfectly prepared, great presentations, well seasoned and delicious. The chowder was tasty and a great consistency. The sole fillet was perfectly cooked, as were the veggie sides. The devil's food cake with ice cream and toasted coconut was exactly as promised!
The only misstep was the poor lighting on the outside veranda, otherwise would've been a 5. We definitely want to visit again before we head back home.
