    Wonderful food, nice wine selections, fun bar scene and good service :) My family and I were traveling up to Napa Valley for Spring break and stopped here for dinner and also stayed overnight at the hotel called The Lodge at Tiburon which was also comfortable, quiet and clean. We will come here again next time we are in the area traveling with our family.

    Nice restaurant. The quinoa salad was delicious but served cold. The salmon was perfect and wild caught. The patio was so nice to enjoy. The artichoke dip was delicious and very small portion. Overall very nice experience and will go there again. Thank you.

    Rude host was just the start of this unideal experience; asking my name multiple times and when she couldn't find it and I looked down at her screen - she rushed to cover it up as if we were attempting to steal classified secrets. She then referred to us as "one of those people" before awkwardly seating us in silence and this regretful experience just colored the rest of the awkward experience. The waitress was charming, kind and thoughtful - just totally stretched with the number of tables she was tending to. Other than the rude host having to help the waitress, and perpetually making things awkward for our group, everything else was just fine. I'd come back if I was sure the host wouldn't be there. Otherwise, happy to never return.

    Another great dinner in one of our favorite Tiburon spots. If you want to taste a pork chop wonderfully cooked, I highly recommend the Tiburon Tavern. My husband loved the burger and the chicken wings were absolutely delicious! We will definitely come back soon!

    The fajitas I ordered were cooked to perfection, but what made them really over the top is the habanero creamy salsa if you like delicious and spicy you gotta try it

    The place is now a favorite when the music plays. The bassist leader MP always gets a good compliment of musicians playing the jazz standards. The food and service continues to be top notch.

    We came back here, after 2 years, for the Lobster Hash and it's still the BEST. We brought our son who was visiting us and he too loved the Lobster hash. We also had the french toast - really good too. Excellent service. We got to the restaurant 20 minutes before my 10am appt and we were seated right away. First inside but it was too hot for us so we asked to be transferred to their patio. Service was excellent especially from Juan. The staff was friendly and checked on us a lot. Thank you!

    They didn’t have the Mahi Mahi which was the only thing on the menu I wanted since I have a gluten allergy. They substituted it with halibut but the halibut was very dry and overcooked.

    Nothing special about the food or service. Not bad, just ok. Have been here before with friends who seem to like for some reason. I think food is way overpriced for how average it is. Almost $100 for 2 salads, no drinks plus tip. Waiter was accommodating to our needs and the environment was certainly pleasant enough. The host is particularly unwelcoming to the point of being sour/dour, forbidding. Mismatch for the job. If it were my choice I would not go back.

    The wait staff is friendly and helpful. The food is excellent. It was super busy due to Mother's Day, so food came out a little slower than expected. But not terribly so. We sat inside because it was it was windy and cold outside. Lots of hard surfaces, so it was very noisy and conversation was difficult.

    We came for Cinco De Mayo and it was so much fun. There was a special menu and live music. The food was very authentic and delicious, especially the tortilla soup, enchiladas and fajitas. The churro dessert really hit the spot too. The bartenders wore sombreros and there were decorations throughout the restaurant and patio which set the scene for a perfect memorable night.

    Boring! We read about Tiburon Tavern then saw that they were having a Cinco de Mayo celebration with music. We decided to try it even though it is not a Mexican Restaurant. We arrived to a noisy place with a lot of older people and a large group business type gathering. The music was pathetic, it was some older folks playing a keyboard and a singer that was impossible to even really hear where they were located. They played boring music and nothing celebratory of the day. The menu was a small selection of "Mexican Foods". I had the steak Fajitas which were pretty good and I enjoyed that , my partner had the fish tocos which were not well spiced and very boring. He did not enjoy them. It's too bad we wanted to love this place but it was just not fun at all.

    We had dinner there on Valentine’s Day. I couldn’t get a table in Sausalito so we found Tiburon Tavern, and we are so glad we did. No waiting to be seated, and not crowded. We parked in the adjoining hotel parking lot, confusing and it worked out, there isn’t much parking around there. Our meals were cooked to perfection, everything tasted so fresh, the meat was super tender. The dessert (cheesecake) was the best we’ve had in a long time. It was a ricotta and lemon based cheesecake…. Not a Costco NY cheesecake doorstop. The coffee was delicious. We are planning to return for more dinners. It was so nice! The service was so polite and even gave me a red rose at the end of dinner. We are so glad we found this place.

    I have eaten at Tiburon Tavern many times throughout all its changes in chefs and menus. When it first opened years ago, it was a lovely high end restaurant with an innovative, although quite expensive menu. The ambiance indoors was warm and beautiful. Since then, the menu, food quality, and service took a considerable downturn. Recently, when Renzo, from Luna Blu , became the master chef, the menu and food quality improved considerably, but service was still a problem. On New year’s Day, 2023, I took my granddaughter for a special treat and we ate outdoors. I was truly disappointed. Although there were very few tables occupied on the patio, the service was extremely slow. We waited over 15 minutes for anyone to take our order, then over 30 minutes for the order to arrive. My granddaughter’s sliders and Caesar salad were good. But my mussels were just okay… very ordinary and not as flavorful as I had in the past. I asked for a cup of hot water and another slice of toast to dip in the broth. . They never came and I had to flag down another waiter to repeat my request. I finally got the hot water, but I had to remind someone about the slice of toast. By this time the broth was completely cold. Finally the bread , without any butter or olive oils arrived. I only wanted one slice of toast, but was charged $4.00 for an order of bread! The whole experience was not satisfactory in terms of quality of food and service. Has the management changed again?
