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.

"Runs hot & cold....sometimes just so-so & sometimes really good depending on how busy they are. We were there last Sunday for lunch with 2 visitors from Palm Dessert. Food was really good & the service was fine. If it could be on that level all the time it would be great but sorry to say it's not. I don't know about the wine list, but the selection of beers is fine. We did have a good time overall."

"It is a cute place, very family friendly and great outdoor dining. However, the music outside was way too loud. It was difficult to have conversation. There is limited food selections and it's a bit pricey but the staff was great."

"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!"

"Food was just okay, and several beers were out due to SF Beer Week. Overall, I wasn't totally impressed with the food or drinks, but service was great, and it's a fun spot."

"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.
