Spectacular setting; average food...

Beautiful, unusual charming hotel set literally under the Golden Gate Bridge. Fabulous views. Restaurant is era appropriate and room is wonderfully period. Service was adequate but unremarkable as was the food. Most things were under-seasoned and bland…. We did LOVE the room...

Had both a dinner and brunch at Murray Circle and both were excellent. The appetizer tamales were wonderful and I had the wild boar ribs which were delicious. Having brunch on the front porch with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge was quite magical.

We had lunch on a Friday with a 12:30 reservation, and all the tables for two (there are not many) on the porch were taken, except for one in the direct sunlight, which was not suitable for us. We were offered the opportunity to sit a long table where half the seats face the meadow, and the harbor in the... More

Beautiful setting. Fancy food and good. Raw oysters,bone marrow and burrata (separate! not one item) were very good. My halibut was wonderful and everyone else loved their lamp and salmon entrees. Extensive wine list. Expensive. Not a huge menu, but a nice variety. Everything local. The only disappointment were the desserts. Out of the 3 we ordered, only 1 was... More

We had a wonderful lunch on the porch overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Headlands. Very friendly and attentive servers and the food was great. I had a wonderful burger with homemade chips, just right. A lovely spot to just sit and watch the world go by

Before getting into details, one thing I really liked and enjoyed was the bone marrow. Order it, spread it, and savor it. So good. About the tasting menu. I really didn't know how to rate it. Compared to others I've experienced, and there are many of them, this was just OK. I didn't feel any love out of it. The... More

Located in an old Army Base, Murray Circle has a small menu, but excellent food and a very helpful staff. Having spent several days in the San Francisco area, this was by far the best food we had and not near the most expensive. Arrive early and walk around and see the sights close by. Well worth the trip!

Outstanding food by Executive Chef Justin Everett using local food; the lamb combo was excellent; service by Julian was excellent; the ambience is very good. The Cavallo Point setting under the north end of the Golden Gate bridge is special. Consider before dinner drinks on the balcony of Farley Bar. Farley Bar menu is also very good. Will definitely return.

Cavallo Point is adjacent to the Golden Gate Bridge the one of the most coveted views....paired with historic building and pristine step back in time 1700's architecture and sprawling landscape...Murray Circle's location makes it perfect. The cuisine is better than average and makes every effort to stay creative.
