We went to Tiburon to celebrate an anniversary (actually a monthly anniversary). When we arrived, we were greeted warmly, and we opted to sit on the patio. The setting wasn't anything remarkable, but it was very nice (clean tablecloths, nice place settings, well land-scaped area). We ordered the Polenta and the Pork Belly appetizers, and were impressed with both. The polenta was served with a delicious rich brown sauce and plenty of earthy mushrooms and tender sliced chicken throughout. The real jewel was the Pork Belly, however, which was served with delicious brie and caramelized onions. Following the appetizer, we had a wonderful salad of mixed greens with fontina cheese, candied pecans, fresh braeburn apples, a roasted roma tomato, and a creamy raspberry vinaigrette dressing. The nicest touch was the house-made raspberry and lemon sorbet served directly after the salad as a precursor to our entrees: we eminently enjoyed going into the main course with a cleansed palate--too few restaurants do this anymore. The entrees were scrumptious -- we had the ribeye (served with garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus, a cooked carrot, oyster mushrooms, and a delicious brown sauce) and the filet (served essentially the same way, though shiitake rather than oyster mushrooms). The filet was very tender, and the ribeye was full of flavor. I rank this among some of my favorite restaurants, though there are places to which I would give preference for their superior ambience. The staff was very helpful, knowledgeable, and blessedly understated. We will return, but if you eat out infrequently and don't enjoy spending money, you can find nicer places for the same money (though the food is on-par with some of the best in the valley). Give it a try, you won't be sorry. :)
Pros: Great food, wonderful service
Cons: Ambience leaves a bit to be desired, but if La Caille had this food I'd be there all the time.
