EV Haus is a lifestyle space for productivity, creativity and celebration. A welcoming spot for wine and small bites.
This is just a great concept - only open Thurs-Sat from 5-10pm. They have a nice selection of wines, draft beers and they serve artisanal bites. We were just there for a glass of wine and some chatting; The man behind the bar knows San Anselmo well and is delightful to talk with. This lounge has a wonderful upscale decor with sofas and chairs and a nice long bar - it's billed as a lifestyle space and that it is. We've enjoyed it whenever we are in town.

We ate dinner at the Lincoln Park restaurant on New Year's Eve, 2915. The outer room holds an L-shaped wine bar. The adjacent dining room is long and narrow and tables are arranged along the walls. Tables for two, which we occupied, were small and round and we had to have the water bottle taken away to provide room. Wine by the glass is expensive, which more or less forces one to purchase a bottle. That, besides the rather hard seats, were the only negatives we found. The staff was exceptionally friendly and attentative. We started the meal with citrus marinated olives and roasted Brussels sprouts. Then we ordered a beef slider and pork tenderloin schnitzel. What great food!! The pork was covered with applesauce and came with mashed potatoes, cauliflower, carrots and broccoli. We came away quite sated. If you don't order wine the meal can be relatively inexpensive.

Marin Countyâs award-winning artisan pizzas, chef-built salads, sandwiches and specials. Open 7-days a week. The best craft beer selection on tap, with 40 draft handles pouring over 30 craft beers from more than 25 craft breweries, plus regional wines, ha
They have a large beer selection, although the one special had just run out when we were there. Almost everyone in the restaurant ordered pizza from what I could tell. The pizzas are about 12" and good for two people to share although you may want another dish or salad if you are really hungry. We asked the bartender for a recommendation since we couldn't decide between two options and he said the Geronimo pizza. It did not disappoint and the burrata on top made it so delicious. I have already recommended this place to some friends and can't wait to go back!

This has been our favorite restaurant in San Anselmo for years due to its quality, friendliness and general atmosphere. The Marin dining scene is rapidly changing with newer places to challenge the old. Cucina recently expanded to incorporate the storefront next door to now include a full bar with seating. The bulk of the dining area remains the same. The good news is that it now has a full bar which can serve cocktails as opposed to wine only. That is a big plus. By the crowds we saw this weekend it is a popular, happening spot for San Anselmo. This is our first visit since the recent expansion so we should not judge it on this one dining experience. The young hostess seemed unsure of herself and not as friendly as the woman who once greeted you in the restaurant. It was a mass of people to walk through and quite loud in the bar. Nothing much has changed in the dining room, including the waitstaff. The menu seemed mostly the same but perhaps a bit longer. I do not recall seeing mahi mahi and steak on the menu previously. There are still the favorites such as the brussel sprout chips. It was nice to get a martini now, but they were a tad skimpy on the olive(s). The beet and arugula salad was heavily dressed, wilted and with only a few slices of flavorless beets. It was not my favorite. The bruschetta was good and garlicky as usual. The butternut squash and sage ravioli was the same. My rigatoni was sort of soupy and not my favorite. I was never offered parmesan cheese which seemed odd. There was just a different vibe this time. The service was perfunctory where it had always felt inviting before. There were no longer little touches like little candles (the table next to us actually requested one). The owner made the rounds to check on diners and simply skipped our table. Most uncomfortable was the hot, humid interior which fogged up the windows and left every surface clammy. Halfway through dinner they turned on the AC which made an enormous difference. I am not sure what is going on with their climate control. There was nothing wrong with dinner which passed very quickly. There was no lounging about (perhaps because we had cocktails and not wine). All in all, this was not an impressive meal. However, since we have always loved the restaurant, and there can be off nights, we will try it again. I hope the expansion has not changed it.

phone - 415-488-6123 - a great little organic wine bar serving great food as well
They have improved the seating and changed the menu. Still have trouble finding wines that I like here but they have decent ones and great beer options if you like that. They serve great local tasty food. They are on the pricey side but appreciate the fine ingredients. It can get loud in here but lately with new seating, noise level seems to be improved.

Farm-fresh authentic Northern Italian restaurant from chef Duilio Valenti and his family. Freshness is what it's all about here and chef Valenti makes extensive use of local and Italian products, and even grows several of his own herbs, vegetables and fru
I went here for a birthday dinner and really enjoyed myself. The waitstaff is very professional and the food is delicious. I'm really tired of high fat "comfort" food being the norm at many restaurants. The focus here is on high quality ingredients and emphasizing the flavors of those ingredients rather than smothering everything in cheese, cream or oil.My husband chose to make a dinner of appetizers and had the smoked trout, the anchovy salad, and a half order of the rabbit pappardelle. He thought they were all delicious. I especially liked the rabbit pappardelle since it was a chilly winter night. For my main I had the black spaghetti alla chitarra, with Maine diver scallops, San Marzano tomatoes, and chile pepper and enjoyed it thoroughly. Portions are generous so I had enough left over to take home for lunch the next day.It's tough to pick a wine that will go with both rabbit and scallops, but our waiter successfully paired a teroldego, a northern Italian varietal, with our meal. Interestingly, the wine came from a northern California winery called West of Temperance in Santa Rosa which specializes in Italian varietals. I enjoyed the wine so much I plan to visit the winery!I tried the Milanese style saffron panna cotta for dessert. It was a lovely texture but I wouldn't recommend it unless you also like flan. The 20 year tawny port we ordered to go with it was delicious and a good value for the price.Thank you so much for the review! We're glad we could be apart of your birthday celebration! You really hit the nail on the head when you said, "The focus here is on high-quality ingredients." Choosing fresh, local ingredients for our dishes makes them so much more delicious! Thanks again for stopping by!
