Mario is the server you want when you come here! He wasn’t even our server but he really saved the meal for us. One of the tacos we ordered came a bit too dry and we couldn’t find our server (he was very MIA) so ended up asking Mario for a sauce. He knew exactly what was needed and brought us the best sauce we have ever tasted. We will be back for more! He also checked up on us later to see if we liked it even though we weren’t in his section.

Atmosphere takes a hit because the restaurant was very loud and echo-y. But the decor was great and the people were friendly! Aug 2023

Vamos a la Playa: Inspired Mexican cuisine in Mill Valley. Great cocktails can soften a lot of missteps, but even without the effects of Tequila, it is clear that the food at PLAYA is excellent, bolstered by the refined service and atmosphere. Michael Bauer, San Francisco Chronicle

Chef Omar Huerta showcases Mexican culinary creativity at PLAYA. THROCKMORTON AVENUE’S NEWEST restaurant is striking for a number of reasons. PLAYA’s modern indoor-outdoor space features both a colossal mural by Zio Ziegler and, from the kitchen, a blend of technique, ingredients and presentation that highlight the malleability of Mexican cuisine.
