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

The food for lunch was not impressive. We ordered soup and it took 15 minutes for the server to tell us the soup was "no good".

We had our "wedding dinner" in Murray Circle and we enjoyed it quite a bit. We had multiple courses, and it was all served generously, and slowly, and in a way that allowed us to enjoy, not feeling rushed.

If you are staying in the city you must take the quick trip over the Golden Gate for breakfast at Murray Circle and a trip around the surrounding property. The food is excellent (not inexpensive, but reasonable for the quality) and the atmosphere is breathtaking. The bloody mary I got from the bar was more expensive than one of our... More

The historic buildings and views of San Francisco & Golden Gate Bridge were matched by excellent food. Our drinks (large ice cubes!) were served with warmed rosemary pistachios.You can't go wrong with these starters: tuna tartar with pistachio/poblano puree (excellent combo), the marrow (yum) and seared scallops that were tender and flavorful. Our entrees were Black Cod with kale, and... More
