Voted one of Marin County’s Best Restaurants by the Chronicle, Insalata’s has been bringing its signature Mediterranean taste to San Anselmo for nearly 30 years. Their 4-course $78 Thanksgiving menu offers modern fare such as a fruit speckled treviso salad and a baklava cheesecake, as well as familiar favorites. Insalata’s promises to bring fusion and variation to the typical holiday spread, including vegan and children’s options on the day.

The picturesque Marin County spot guarantees the utmost quality in their $95 Prixe fixe Thanksgiving menu. You can choose to soak in surrounding views from their patio seating, or get cozy in their welcoming dining room. 

Le Garage

This Sausalito waterfront haunt, also commended by SF Chronicle, offers the most budget-friendly Thanksgiving menu on our list. The 3-courses at $55 per person includes some rich french bistro flavors added to classics such as turkey and salmon. Le Garage is extremely accessible, being only a twenty minute walk from the ferry.

After 75 years in Mill Valley, this Californian bistro has mastered the culinary arts.
