Cavallo Point's acclaimed restaurant, Murray Circle, under the direction of Executive Chef Justin Everett, is one of the Bay Area's top culinary destinations. Highlighting refined modern Northern California cuisine anchored to its Marin roots, the freshest local ingredients and stunning Golden Gate Bridge views, a meal here is inspired. Settle into the elegant yet comfortable dining room accented with beautifully restored tin ceilings, fine art photography and toasty fireplaces.

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...

Creative menu with a mix of traditional fare, with modern and unexpected twists. In a century-old military building that has been thoroughly updated. Very comfortable. Good service. Killer view of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Tucked away in the refurbished Fort Baker grounds, the Cavallo Hotel and its Murray Circle restaurant are a hidden gem! We went for breakfast on a Sunday morning and were happy to find a cozy spot away from The City. Fresh ingredients and gourmet coffees make this place a breakfast treat. We dined inside but the next time I go... More

Breakfast on the porch is lovely, dinner at night inside is great. Never left the Lodge during our stay.

Loved the quiet ambience and attentive service! Fresh seafood, beautiful presentation, and great portions. My kids loved the truffle fries and creamy mac-n-cheese. Overall, wonderful family dinner with an upscale and creative menu!

I took my girlfriend here for a romantic dinner after a day of sailing. She looked beautiful, but I guess that has nothing to do with the restaurant. Or maybe it does. I expected the restaurant to pale in comparison to her, but it held its own. The dining room was quiet and romantic, just like I had hoped. The... More

The restaurant at the Golden Gate bridge was closed, so we googled this and happened here by accident. OMG! The food was amazing, the service impeccable. They started us out with a light coffee - moved on to darker as our meal progressed. Simply amazing. They have tables on the porch and inside. We sat inside by the windows on... More

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.

If you're looking for a great atmosphere to eat with you family, this is the place to go! 5 star service + over the top customer service!

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
