Marin Joe's, Corte Madera, CA

Marin Joe's Restaurant Review

: Owned and run for more than 50 years by two generations of the Della Santina family, Joe’s is a longtime draw for locals who enjoy the retro atmosphere, large portions of Italian food, good steaks and moderate prices. The Caesar salad tossed tableside, Joe's special with ground beef, spinach and an egg, and ample pastas are all satisfying options, and Wednesday's osso buco always consistently sells out. The massive mesquite grill turns out flame-licked steaks, inch-thick onion-laced burgers, calves liver and fresh fish. Save room for the made-to-order zabaglione and fried cream, throwbacks you don't often see on menus anymore. Marin Joe’s is also the only piano bar in Marin County, featuring live music nightly in a saloon that would have made Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack feel right at home.
