AVOID MARIN JOE'S.
I had heard how good this place was. Maybe if you are over 60 and have no taste buds left. The service was rather crappy, the food was salty and reminded me of Chef Boyardee and it was expensive! The best part was the piano bar and fire place. Please, please, please! Do yourself a favor and go to any other Italian restaurant.
Always packed. Get there early..
Marin Joe's in Corte Madera serves a wonderful Italian menu. From their Caesar Salad made from scratch at your table to their broiled steaks (when you say "rare" it comes out rare) to the unbelievably tasty sand dabs, fresh trout, and all of the Italian-style veal and chicken dishes, this place cannot be beat. The only drawback is that they do not take reservations, but that insures that they don't play favorites.
