    Good food and cocktails. Attentive service. Had the rack of ribs, crab cakes, and calamari. Split it between 3 of us. Very filling.

    The food was fabulous. The Petrale and Pot Roast were as good as any I've ever had. Lemon Drop Martini was excellent but small. Could have been twice as big. Excellent value.

    We received really lovely service at this new Perry's, located in the same parking lot as the Best Western Novato Oaks. We had a party of 10, but separate reservations, so we were seated in two booths. When one of us inquired about maybe moving to a seating where we could talk better, the staff and management absolutely stood on their heads to accommodate us. Such nice people. Our waitress was terrific, as well. I had a salad but we also had appetizers to pass, which were yummy. Everyone's food looked excellent. I think mine was the Malibu salad, which was very good. I found the prices kind of high but I'm not used to California prices, so don't go by my judgement.

    The ambiance is wonderful. Great attentive service. Outdoor patio very classy-casual, however a bit squeezed. Cobb Salad excellent. Spaghetti and meatballs: very good sauce, meatballs tender but bland, garlic bread could have been better. Overall rating two thumbs up. We shall come back!

    Nice place but expected more from Perry’s. The chicken in the BLTA could be eaten and was sent back. The salad was delicious but needed to ask for more dressing. With the comp on 2 dinners the bill came to $40 with the tip. A bit steep for one beer, salad and fries.

    Portions were generous, the main dishes were well prepared; the ribs were excellent and the lamb shank cooked perfectly. The sides were less memorable, and the fries were disturbingly greasy. Will give the benefit of new staff and gearing up, but definitely can stand improvement with staff organization. As another reviewer commented there is a problem with temps for white wine. What we had was nearly room temperature. This needs to be addressed.

    We were delayed due to a family emergency, called in and they saved our booth. Our server was great-polite, attentive and fast with requests. The three of us ordered different dishes. I had the pot roast-just delicious! Husband had the spaghetti & meatballs, cousin had the crab cakes, which comes with a small salad. We also ordered a Caesar salad for the table. It was chilled just right and we enjoyed every morsel. My only critique would be to cook the asparagus properly-it was limp and soggy. As it was my birthday, they brought a brownie with ice cream that we all shared. Their portions of everything are HUGE and a good value. So, i benefitted from leftovers the next night👍🏻The new location is lovely and airy inside. You can sit outside as well. Very spacious in general. They have a nice bar, manned by “Erik”, who knows his stuff! There is ample parking. Signage could be a bit more directive upon entry, as there is a Best Western adjacent to the restaurant…confusing a bit. On the whole, good venue, good food, fair pricing! We will return!

    We went on a Friday evening at 5:30 for drinks and appetizers. Although it was busy we noticed a seat or two available at the bar and outside. They expanded the bar area which makes perfect sense. Great service, good wines and beer, and the appetizers were fantastic. Our server was quick, friendly and attentive, despite it being busy. We'll be back!

    Our waiter was very efficient and our service was very fast. We had spareribs and pot roast. Which were good however the coleslaw salad just tasted like mayonnaise. We also had the onion curls which were good and we ran into a friend on their way out when we were going in and they were not happy with their meal. They said the breadsticks were dry like cardboard and the bread on the sandwich was way too thick

    Nice repurposing of the old Wildfox. It’s a Perry’s with the same menu, etc. I think it will successful with the locals. Larkspur is closer to us and is a favorite.

    Perry’s was very crowded on our 7 o’clock arrival. I had made a reservation four days in advance and asked for a table away from a high traffic area. We were seated just outside the kitchen door with servers passing our table constantly. The noise level was a very high and we had to speak in loud voices to hear one another. The service was good, and the food fair. In the ending, we were a bit disappointed. We love Perrys in Larkspur and we will pretty much confine our future visits to that location.

    Service was great. Waiter was so nice and attentive. Artichoke was very undercooked. First time and second time. Would not order again. Most gluten free items were cooked in same oil as non gluten free items so no point in saying gluten free. Petrale sole was very eggy. Crab cakes and ahi were great. Wine and cider was good. Cocktails not very good. Would go back for sports and wine and beer.

    From reception to table service we felt welcomed and valued. The food choices were adequate given that the restaurant was building its staff from a recent opening. The food and drinks were well prepared and delivered promptly. The cost of the meals was expected to be high in view of recent inflation particularly affect food and transportation.

    We were so happy to see Perry's here in Novato. But....I think they still need more time to train and get up to their usual standards. Our food was less than expected. The Fried Chicken was dry and had no seasoning at all! The best plate was their Ribs that was great! Service is not up to standard - I know times are difficult but our server was less than adequate. we will wait another 6-7 months before going again. oh, the bread sticks - over baked! Good black ice tea!

    Not a full dinner, but had the crab cakes & an excellent house specialty Manhattan cocktail. There are 2 crab cakes and they come with a salad dressed in a nice light vinaigrette with pine nuts & sweet cherry tomatoes. Tasty and as filling as an entree portion. Ate in the bar area so I could watch the Warriors Finals playoff game - just enough TVs to make any sports fan pleased. I walked outside to their patio dining area and they even had 2 TVs out there! Recommended!

    Everything was great but the brownie dessert that we ordered and paid $8.00 for was really bad. The ice cream that came with it practically melted and the brownie was so hard we couldn’t even get into it to enjoy it. All the rest of the food was amazing and was very reasonable overall.

    A work in progress. I think it’s too early to give them a serious review but they do need to tighten some things up. Specifically the pile of fat that was supposed to be pot roast.

    Service was great. Noise level made conversation Ok. Place looks great. Food selection was minimal. Only a few choices. I ordered a steak that was wonderful. The sides were two kinds of French fries, Mac and cheese, and creamed spinach. No healthy choices. No sautéed vegetables, nothing but heavy creamed carbs. I will probably try the bar as it looks fun but if I want dinner with some healthy choices, I will go somewhere else.
