HopMonk Tavern - Novato

If you’ve been to our first two Taverns you’ll expect another original interpretation, this time in Northern Marin County, of the things we love. That’s serving fresh, in-season craft beers alongside our Tavern classics, Kellerbier, Tavern Ale, IPA, and Dunkelweizen. Preparing in our new exhibition kitchen tasty Tavern fare, this time adding wood fired pizza. We bring the outdoors in by connecting the tavern to our beautiful beergarden under five California old growth oaks. Our Novato Tavern can comfortably entertain groups large and small in our music venue.

"I was excited to be going to a restaurant that I had not been to before. I was hoping to experience a place worth talking about in a good way but unfortunately it was the complete opposite. I requested a quiet table due to my mother's hearing issues (even with a hearing aide) and we were literally sat in the middle of the restaurant. I ordered the sliders, medium rare and my nephew ordered the burger medium. Both were well done and dry. We were never asked or received a refill for our drinks and when we finally received our dessert, that's when they cleared some of the dinner plates. The most enjoyable part of the evening aside from being with my family was Frank the magician. Even my 18 year old Nephew got a kick out of him. As an executive that is also in the hospitality industry, I understand if you are short staffed for the night due to Super Bowl weekend and all of the festivities, however guest service should always be the number one priority as you well know. Sorry I won't recommend in the future."

"Took my son to an early dinner here before shopping. Our server was outstanding! The menu is varied with choices to suit anyone's dietary needs/desires. The food came on time and was delicious. This is far better than "normal" pub grub prepared with care and with fresh ingredients. Prices are reasonable. I highly recommend Hop Monk for a casual meal!"

"The food and service was good. It was a little too cold out in the enclosed patio.
However, because of large group parties inside, the noise level was quieter in
enclosed patio even though there were 2 birthday parties. So it may be wise to
check before being seated down at the table.

"We ate at Hop Monk prior to a gig at the Session Room adjacent to the dinning room. The pork sliders were delicious; the fish and chips were well-fried. The portions were generous and the prices were very reasonable. The beer offerings were varied and delicious. It was a fun way to spend an informal evening."

"Last several times not enough servers working. Very slow. Today had reservations for 2 people at 1230 and they called to confirmed. We showed up on time and was told that we had to wait 10 mins because two big parties showed up. We only had 1 hour so we left. I can understand with walk ins but when you make reservations? They need to add more staff."

"Three of us (all October birthdays) had lunch at Hop Monks a few days ago. Been there many times for lunch or dinner and it can run hot & cold depending on how busy they are. This time it was just fine and the three of us had a great birthday celebration. Food and service were both very good and everyone was happy with what they had. I hadn't even mentioned to any of the staff that it was a "birthday lunch" but they picked up on it and brought us a very nice surprise dessert (candle and all). We were quite pleased."

"Workday lunch spot with nice outdoor seating. The $8 lunch combo is a deal and the food is solid. Service is attentive most of the time but every now and then there is a lapse with new staff. Last visit they forgot our water we ordered along with other beverage. Wont stop me from returning..."

"Hop Monk should concentrate on making good beer only. The food is mediocre and hardly fit for foodies - totally tasteless. One example: We ordered the Samosas - the wrap is wonton and that is not authentic; one can not tell what the filling was. Cutting corners won't earn you repeated diners. Hop Monk is off our list."

"Came to see a show in the back room - Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers. Before the show we thought we'd grab a bite. Our reservation was easy to make through Open Table. The service was great and the food was outstanding. They have some great unique dishes and I chose the Jambalaya. I lived in Houston and visited Louisiana several times and the quality was no less authentic. Loved it."

"Seemed like 7:30 was a little early to run out of Rueben sandwiches, so that was disappointing. Odd there was no music in the special room on Saturday night which would have extended our evening there."
