There are plenty of better ways to spend your money on a good meal. Even the Happy Hour is hedged in by rules about what you can get and where.

We had dinner here. Good drinks, friendly wait staff, food was well above average. We had burgers, pasta and fish and it was all good.

This is great restaurant. We've had the brunch which was excellent and we've had dinner here too, which was also excellent. Their patio is so peaceful and romantic complete with fireplace! We've never had a bad food experience here. The staff is also very friendly and we didn't have to wait long for our food. Great for couples!

A well run restaurant adjacent to the Best Western Hotel in Novato. Excellent sandwiches; the pork chop is perfection; grilled prawns are amazing (though slightly spicy). However,the wood fired pizza was a huge disappointment. Prices are slightly high, but considering this is Novato -- to be expected. It is a classy place with very nice decor, a professional kitchen &... More

We enjoyed our lunch. I had a delicious chicken sandwich and my friend had salmon.The food was flavorful. The service was a teensy bit lax, but fine since we weren't in a hurry. We had a Maguerita, which was very fresh-tasting but very little alcohol. I could tell that lunch wouldn't be their priority, since there were few customers there.... More

Met several friends for a birthday lunch celebration. We all had salads. I asked for a Southwestern salad without meat. The waiter suggested extra avocado instead. Very tasty salad! Others ordered the Greek salad which they enjoyed. Then a friend asked if she could if she could bring in a vegan dessert she made and the staff was very accommodating.... More

We visit Wildfox fairly regularly for dinner and are always pleased with the friendly service and the good food. Our favorites are the salmon Cobb salad and their pizzas. The bistro steak is good too. They have a nice varied menu with something for everyone, whether you just want an appetizer and a beer or a full meal.

You don't expect to find a good restaurant across the carpark from a Best Western, but this is a very good restaurant and there is simply no denying it.
