Food and service very good. Nice that there were half-bottles of wine, especially after 4 days of wine-tasting in Napa. Pianist added much to enjoyment (is there Mon.-thurs.)

This place is on and off with service, I'm im hoping it has nothing to do with me being "brown". We have friends who quite often visit us and love this place, many times the service is Ok but this last time it lacked a lot. The waiter was late with opening our wine, late food and poor service. The... More

This restaurant at the Cavallo Point Lodge in Fort Baker, Sausalito, CA is really great, it would take a curmudgeon not to give it 5-stars, so I guess I am a bit of one (read on to see what kicked off my inner curmudgeon), hence my 4-star rating. First the good news. The location is wonderful beyond belief, right across... More

A 1905 setting with great food and service. Could not have been happier. Near the Golden Gate Bridge, but the old fort has lots to see and do. I liked it all.

We were really looking forward to trying the Cavallo Point dining experience based on the generally excellent online reviews, so booked a private room for a 15 person family get-together. The price point was a bit steep for, say, a Dungeness crab sandwich prix fixe menu, but we figured overall we were paying in part for the venue & view,... More

Great burgers, eaten outside with the view of the Golden Gate above you. Wow, this was a great experience and I would love to come back the next time I'm in San Francisco!

It was crowded, but you can bring the drinks outside to the lawn and wait for your table. Really cool for our group of 4 adults and a minor. Once we got seated (30 minutes estimate was accurate) we at on the porch and food was really good.

This is one of my favorite splurge restaurants for extra special occasions. First - you cannot beat the view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Second, the food is excellent. The service is courteous and always leaves me feeling pampered. If you want to wow someone - take them here.
