My husband and I will be in Sausalito next week. What are the not-to-be-missed places for dinner? All suggestions are very much appreciated. Many thanks! db

    For dinner Murray Circle is a must, assuming you have a car or can take a cab as it is within Sausalito but not in the "downtown" area. Its in Fort Baker at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge, part of the Cavallo Point resort.

    They make all of their own bread and the food is excellent. The adjacent Farley Bar also has my fave hamburger in the bay area.

      FISH--seafood (cash only). I like the fish and chips.
      Sushi Ran (sushi). Good pricey sushi.
      Le Garage--French. Can't remember what I had here, but I liked it!

        Fish is a wonderful restaurant -- casual, I prefer it for lunch because the outdoors is so nice (and it only serves dinner until 8) but much better food than Scoma's, for example. And Poggio is awful -- midwestern hotel dining.

          Skip Scoma's. Its a tourist trap and the one in the city at Fisherman's Wharf is the same stuff...not good and pricey. Try Poggio or Angelino for a real Sausalito experience. Sushi Ran is also pricey and just lost their Michelan Star...go to JapanTown instead for better value.

            We enjoy Scoma's often, whatever you think of it. Yes, quite pricey, but the building has an interesting history and the restaurant is reliable for great food and service. Sushi Ran lost that star, whatever that means, but still serves some of the best Japanese food in the area that meets OP's request.

              Have been to Sushi Ran 3 or 4 times in the past 2 months and whatever they lost in their star does not show in their food or service. Always excellent and high quality, probably the best in the North Bay for sushi.

            For dinner, it's Sushi Ran on Caledonia. Scoma's on Bridgeway for full bar and seafood... there's more...
