The food is unique and tasty. It is a small space and can get a little loud, but it's got a good environment. It's nice for a date night.

Me and my husband visited here on the last night of our week long stay in Fairfax in September '16. The place had a nice relaxed atmosphere and did not appear pretentious like some wine bars can be renowned for. There was a great wine selection with many locally produced wines to choose from and we enjoyed all the wines... More

We've normally gone for wine and snacks but this time we sent for an early supper since we were from a different time zone. I had a cheese board which was just perfect and my pal had a larger plate but now I don't recall which one. I know he liked it very much and the cheese board was just... More

My wife and I found ourselves staying in the Fairfax area a few weeks back after a long time away. In walking the town, we came across 123 Bolinas and it looked like an inviting place for an early dinner and a glass (or two) of wine so we stopped in. It didn't disappoint. First, there is a nice mix... More

They have improved the seating and changed the menu. Still have trouble finding wines that I like here but they have decent ones and great beer options if you like that. They serve great local tasty food. They are on the pricey side but appreciate the fine ingredients. It can get loud in here but lately with new seating, noise... More

The space is small but cute, with eclectic but lovely decor; the staff is friendly and service is helpful without being annoyingly in-your-face; and, most importantly, the food is delicious without being overpriced. This was the best restaurant-meal we'd had in a while, and we'd be happy to go back. The dining room can be slightly cramped -someone at the... More

Good atmosphere but a little loud. The combination of a number of small sharable plates worked out quite well

123 Bolinas is a cozy little restaurant, nestled in the heart of Fairfax. Across the street from a stunning redwood park, in addition to inside you can also chose to sit casually outside on a warm day on the bench seats. Right in front of the two way 25 MPH zone street that runs through Fairfax, if you're local you'll... More

I'm a San Francisco resident and it's pretty hard to impress us when it comes to farm-to-table slow food goodness, and this one definitely did! We were there on a Friday night, so it was packed, but all the warmer a vibe. For an appetizer, we had the fried pickled carrots, which we had to try because, well, where are... More
