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.

We stopped here for a glass of wine and small plates during our recent visit to Sausalito. Sat on their expansive porch. Amazing views of Bay.... Great small bites menu, creative cocktails and nice wine list. There were outdoor heaters if it was chilly but also nestled in a harbor/protected area (probably why the base was located there in the... More

I had the wild boar ribs and they were amazing. We ordered several desserts and they were all great. The wine was delicious (but not cheap!) This was a fabulous meal in a nice spot. I'd stay here for a night just to have dinner. What's not to like?

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.

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.

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.
