The food was very good. The room we were in was very cold (not emotionally, just the temperature. The staff was not able to warm it up, even though another room was very comfortable. The reservation staff seems a bit overwhelmed much of the time and should be more reliable and attentive. The setting and service, though, were beautiful.

Creative menu, we had quail... delish. Service was excellent. We were there midweek and early. No problems with reservation or service. Ask for Cassady. Dining room not full. I mention since other reviewers had waits on weekends. Nice setting but you'll have to go outside on porch to see GG Bridge or SF for best view. Huge wine list! You'll... More

I was celebrating a birthday of a dear friend and wanted a special spot that was also dog-friendly as Bette, my friend's 5 month old puppy would be joining us. Murray Circle allows dogs to dine with their guests on their porch. It was perfect. Amazing view of the Golden Gate Bridge and surroundings along with a little iconic SF... More

I am a huge fan of Cavallo Point. We stayed here last fall, but did not eat at the on site restaurant. We returned with friends for a late Saturday lunch. The setting is amazing. It really feels "off the grid" yet with all modern amenities. I wanted to love the restaurant... But the food was just okay. Not memorable.... More

We wanted to go to a new restaurant for our anniversary dinner celebration. Remembering good things that friends said about Murray Circle, we decided this was the place. It definitely was! First, you can't find a more awesome location and view at the north of the Golden Gate Bridge. The menu is very creative and locally sourced. The friendliness of... More

Largely favorable reviews here led to high expectations that were not met. Food wise, a unique salad of wild greens proved to be the one very good item we had from a rather limited menu. After a tiny and insipid glass of rhubarb juice audaciously delivered as an "amuse-bouche," followed by some now-forgotten appetizer, the entree of Prather Ranch pork... More

The food was excellent and the service was absolutely superb. This was a Friday lunch at 1 PM, and they were not busy. The hostess was gracious, and our server, Richard, was friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. When I made the reservation, the person on the phone asked whether this was for a special occasion. I said, let's say it isn't.... More

When I went here after it first opened I could see why it had earned one Michelin Star however I went the other day and sadly a lot has changed. It's still an amazing location and the ambience and friendly staff still impress however the food is disappointing. An overly clever menu of American European cuisine just doesn't quite get... More

We went for lunch. Beautiful view from the patio, helpful maître'd who moved us to more comfortable seats when they became available. Frederick was our server: he was fantastic-friendly, professional, courteous, knowledgable and being incredibly considerate. He paid attention to detail, so did the chef. The food was tasty and beautifully presented. I had the lentil burger which was perfectly... More

Arrived here by accident after a bicycle tour from San Francisco. They were fully booked, but started at the bar inside and then went to the terras half an hour later. Their lunch was excellent. Had some great mussels and a very fine Spanish alborino wine. Its a very relaxing retaurant with a great atmosphere. Enjoyed it a lot
