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. Outside, soak up the sun on plush outdoor seating on the historic porch, with sweeping views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge.

We enjoyed a delightful lunch at this lovely restaurant. Our host, a local San Franciscan, chose this fine spot for lunch during our day trip to San Francisco. She had reserved a table in advance. It was a beautiful sunny day and we asked to be seated outdoors. We ordered drinks from the bar while we waited for an outdoor... More

Dinner for 10. Food and service were excellent. Everyone raved about the cake they made. Call and discuss what you want. Staff is accommodating

Really nice place, great location, but unfortunately on the day we visited the service was very very very slow. We watched other tables get served before us and when our food finally arrived some plates were warm and others almost cold…

This is the hotel's fine restaurant, but they let you order from the Farley's Bar menu here as well as long as at least one diner orders from the Murray Circle menu -- how nice. We had the short ribs, pork tasting, black cod, quinoa mac n' cheese, duck sliders, and crab sandwich. All of us were very very happy.... More

If you're looking for a bit of a getaway, Murray Circle is just the right spot. It's a short drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, down a windy road, and into a national park with spectacular views of the bridge and San Francisco. If it's a gorgeous day, you can take a short walk along the water to help build... More

A delightful, pleasant brunch. Not a complicated menu, just good. The setting is unusual with good parking assistance.

We dined here for both dinner and breakfast while staying on the property. All of the food is seasonal, fresh, and delicious. I find the dining room elegant and soothing. The service was spectacular.

I found this place by accident while on the business trip. It's got a great atmosphere, good food and an unbeatable view on the park and the Golden Gate Bridge. A bit on expansive side, this restaurant is great for a date.

Enjoyed thoroughly one weekday afternoon. We had the set lunch menu for $28 with choice of one of four mains. Beautiful presentation, creative interpretation by deconstruction of standard presentation. Innovative and would recommend. Lovely on a cold day inside. Great experience!
