Spent $500 last Saturday evening with some friends. We found that service was very bad, we could get them to give us any service half way through dinner. Highest price drinks I've ever seen. The food was so so nothing wow by the food. The staff needs to be trained better if they are going to charge this level of... More

Murray Circle is a "hotel restaurant", but it's much better than the term implies. It's in the remains of a military base just north of the Golden Gate, with a view stretching out to encompass most of the bay. The service is stellar, four-star quality with well-dressed staff and most of the formal etiquette - you will get served from... More

We came with high expectations because of their location. The views from the front deck eating area were outstanding on a nice sunny afternoon. Service was great in a friendly environment too. Oh, but the crab and pastrami sandwiches were just OK. Crab sandwich came with nice chips and onion dip and pastrami came with fried egg on top and... More

I had brunch with friends on New Years Eve. The food was amazing!. We chose to eat outside where it was a bit chilly, but they provide lap blankets for you so it was perfect while we looked at the amazing view of the Golden Gate Bridge. It was remarkably affordable considering the posh surroundings and location. I would highly... More

About two to three times a year I am fortunate enough to have dinner at Murray Circle. Every time I think - there is no way they can improve on the last time - and I am always proven wrong. Despite being so good, they just get better. I highly recommend eating from their "tasting" menu. You can select either... More
