"Met some friends here for a casual evening get together. We sat on the deck and the sun was just setting; someone was playing guitar music below and maybe a 100 feet from the deck. It was pretty nice. All ages are welcome and some folks had their kids as we were dining early. The outdoor music ends at 7 but professional musicians play nightly for a small cover in the adjacent music venue--the sounds drift pleasantly out to the dining area.
The food is fine. Fried calamari, fish and chips, the usual are really good. The jambalaya lacks depth. It is toned down for a 10 year old's taste buds and need to be layered and pumped up . The reuben is generous but in my opinion there's just too much cheese.
Service is energetic and pleasant but requests are sometimes forgotten. There seem to be a fair number of newer/learning servers.
The beers on tap are always interesting and delicious. Fall in and have a good time."

"The mussels with sweet potato fries are amazing!!!
And Wednesday nights Frank, a magician, comes around the tables doing tricks. It may sound stupid, but he's incredibly good and still mesmerizes my teenage kids."

"Have eaten here numerous times, mostly for lunch. Great Beer selection! The food is always good, as is the service. The outdoor area is even good in the winter as they have a giant clear plastic tent over the yard and it is heated. Great place!"

"Hop Monk is a local favorite and our office staff met there last year for holiday lunch so we planned the same for this year. But, even though we had reservations, and presumably the restaurant was gearing up for holiday crowds, they must have been short staffed on that Wednesday because our wait was way too long. We brought wine with us, expecting a corkage fee, but the glasses and opener didn't arrive, so we went to the bar to get what we needed. The food was great, but by the time it arrived, we all needed to get back to work! It took 45 minutes to get our appetizers, and more than 90 minutes for our meals to arrive. We even had to chase the waitress down to get our check."

"Food was good a lot of organic and out of the box from normal bar food. They had a great selection of beer both bottled and on tap, which is why we chose this restaurant. The venue got very loud as the evening went on, the open design was probably why, not a huge deal to us. The service however was very, very slow. When we arrived the restaurant was not very busy, that being said it took 15 minutes to get a server and another 20 or more minutes to get served our drinks. The same was true for ordering our food, server was slow to come back, and from drinks arriving to getting food was another 45 minutes. We were never asked about our drinks again. We ordered beer flights so we could taste several and order based on that and unfortunately we were never given the opportunity. We were there for almost 2 hours for a beer flight and an entree. This was the location in Sebastopol, the location in Novato however, I have visted many times and had great service!!"

"Good Pub Grub at Hopmonk. Great beer selection. We ate at the Sebastopol location, but have been to the other 2 locations. Everything is the same for all 3."

"We went to the Hopmonk for a date it was recommended by a friend and when I mentioned it to my date she was very excited. We got there and were very excited and the place was full of energy. After being seated we were greeted by our waiter very quickly and had our beers ordered and appetizers on the table. Calamari was excellent! After that we had the main course which for my date was the Chili Verda and I have the braised salmon. Both very good. We got another round of beers and by that time the place was slowing down. We paid the bill and headed out.
The one thing I would have liked to know is where does the band play at? We wanted to dance but had no idea where to go. Other then that great time and would totally recommended it for others."

"Been to hopmunks quite a few times over the years....service has gotten worse. Servers constantly forgetting orders, not coming back and checking in with large groups and small ones as well....waited for a beer on second order for almost half an hour... Could just br managements inability to properly staff or run kitchen . but its been consistently bad service. Food and beer is great...if the orders are ever right, if they have the food in, and they remember that you ordered any of it."

"Loved the outdoor seating and the fact they welcomed our dog. Easy to meet new people and definitely a party feel to restaurant."
