Chalk up another mediocre (if hopeful) review for the Marin location of Carlos Santana's flashy Maria Maria: "Two months in, I would say it still needs a shakedown. There are charms. I love the decor ... I wish the food was up to the atmosphere. The large menu, one of the lengthiest and certainly most inventive I've seen in Marin, reads wonderfully ... Maybe this restaurant just needs a few more weeks to fine-tune the details. Certainly some of what we ate was appealing enough to make me want to go back." [MIJ]
