Due to current conditions and Marin County's recent stay-at-home order as of December 8, 2020, most of our featured restaurants have either temporarily closed or are currently providing take-out only, with possible curbside pickup and delivery available at some locations. Please refer to our dedicated pages for Food and Wine Options to Go and Restaurants Offering Take-Out Now.
From cozy and casual to elegant and refined, Marin County is home to more than 500 restaurants. Every region of the world is represented with its own rich and diverse ethnic cuisine, and friendly and engaging restauranteurs happily share their history and secrets.
Marin’s sophisticated restaurants have access to California’s freshest seasonal ingredients. Fifty percent of Marin County is farmland growing a variety of fruits and vegetables, including olives and wine grapes. Dairy farms supply 20 percent of the San Francisco Bay Area’s milk, as well as artisan cheeses and butter. Marin County, surrounded by water on three sides, enjoys the freshest of fish and seafood, locally farmed oysters, clams and mussels. Marin County is known throughout California and the nation for its outstanding organic agriculture, family farms, and unique produce. Much of Marin’s overall agricultural production is certified organic, as well as the county’s progressive natural and organic agricultural practices.
Your Marin County dining experience may bring you to a mountain-side lodge providing dramatic views, a bayside café with views of sailboats and the Golden Gate Bridge, a rustic ranch with live music and dancing, a modern Italian villa, or a historic country inn. Fine wines, of course, are the order of the day, with the best of California’s wine country at our doorstep.
