We had lunch on the veranda, dinner in the restaurant, and breakfast delivered to our room. Everything about eating here, from the quality of the food to the professional, timely, and even, at times, humorous staff, is beyond reproach. In fact, I cannot say enough good things regarding the staff within both the food service areas and the hotel in... More

This is a great spot for snacks and drinks right next to the Discovery Museum. My mom and I snuck away from my husband and 2.5-year-old son for a cocktail break and snacks (we just reek of maternal instinct, don't we??). Glad we did! I had a seasonal tequila-based cocktail with strawberry and basil, my mom had something minty- whatever... More

Overpriced, dull food. Not horrible but very bland. The service was adequate, although after we were served we were not given much attention.

The restaurant at Murray Circle is at Cavallo Point Lodge in Sausalito. It's draw is the amazing view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Although the food was good, it was the view that was the real reason for going. The brunch is good, especially the pastry basket, but not a "wow" factor. I would definitely return, especially to show the... More

This restaurant is a great discovery for us. We love its location, removed from any city hustle and bustle and tucked into the Ft. Baker area near the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge.
