lucky to get it on a quiet nightwe couldn't have been luckier on our first date. it was a warm san francisco nite, wednesday, and a clear view to the bay and bridge. surpriseingly there were not many people there. we started with wine on the porch. the waiter let us try the different charnannays before ordering. my date ran late and they let us push back the dinner reservation 1 /2 hour. very accomadating !. we had a nice table for dinner in the corner so we felt private from the rest of the diners. my port tenderloin was cooked just as i ordered, her halibut was perfect for her.we shared an exciting salad. we were full but want something sweet so the waiter let us split a dessert from the trio. love the place---oh, back out on the porch for the moonlite evening.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLaid Back EleganceMurray's circle dinner was phenomenal. We started with gnocchi; burrata cheese salad etc. Our main courses where pork tenderloin and New York steak. Both were unique and done to perfection.
Fabulous dessert specials.
Very extensive wine list from both California and around the world.
Many thanks to Michael, Debbie and others for making the dining experience memorable.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile the dinner menu wasWhile the dinner menu was very small, the choices were diverse. The apps and mains were well executred with very fresh ingredients. Free valet parking was an unexpected perk. We will be back.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBay View with Golden Gate BridgeThis restaurant is incredible...the food, ambiance, wait staff, everything from A to Z just wonderful!!!! This is a very romantic location with a view of the tops of the Golden Gate Bridge across the greenery and bay.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful 25th Dinner!My wife and I met on the GG Bridge on its 50th and went to Murray Circle to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. A chance meeting with Chef Justin upon entering convinced us to try the Tasting Menu with the wine pairing. Seated at a corner table with a view of the Bridge and the fireplace off to one side established the perfect spot for our unhurried evening.
The service from Mike and support staff was exceptionable. He was always at the ready without being overbearing, delightful in casual conversation, and knowledgeable on all offering.
I am limited to characters left - so the food was EXCELLENT! Fresh, different blends of flavors while being familiar.
Try Murray Circle for a special occasion you'll be very satisfied! Desserts +++6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food and serviceMurray Circle provided one of the most memorable dinners we have ever had. The preparation of the wild salmon (poached in olive oil) was both imaginative and superbly executed as was the simple salad of little gem lettuce and the variety of chocolate creations for dessert.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulWe celebrated our parents' 50th anniversary here and booked the private room for 12, including two kids - great ambiance, service and setting - food was terrific as was the wine list - would definitely recommend. Very nice patio outside as well with a grassy knoll where kids can play.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view and foodLocated right off of Golden Gate Bridge. Great view. Ask for patio seating upon arrival. Delicious food and drinks!
Strongly recommend walking around premise.
On a sunny day, you can capture beautiful pictures with the Bridge as your background.
Ask for a blanket if seated outside, as it might get a bit chilly.
Strongly recommend this spot for locals and visitors alike!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful time seatedWe had a wonderful time seated in the semi private area niche with great service. Our waiter was outstanding. The food was excellent!
Thank you!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMsimply awesome!!This was one of my top dining experiences, ever! From the moment my husband & I arrived & handed our keys to the valet to the end of our visit it was perfection. We started out enjoying a lovely beverage on the patio with a gorgeous view of SF, then onto the dining room for the most delicious food & wine. Each morsel was a delight. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable, and had a great demeanor. The assistant staff, busboys etc. , were also very efficient & pleasant. Also the manager was around keeping an eye on things but not intrusive. I NEVER review but this was a stellar experience i felt compelled to make the effort this time. Been telling all my friends!!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMurray Circle is at CavalloMurray Circle is at Cavallo Point which is a spectacular resort. We enjoyed lunch while celebrating a birthday. The crab sandwich and garden vegetable sandwich were fine as was the seared rare tuna salad.
Enjoying a massage and the spa after completed the day.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was awful !!!The service was awful !!! it should be better in a place like this !5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting and elegantThe wine and bar list are very extensive. Food choices are interesting with unusual ingredients and flavors. This is a high class restaurant in an historic and beautiful location. Stroll the grounds of Fort Baker--in the shadow of Golden Gate Bridge with awesome views of the city of San Francisco and the Bay-- before or after your meal.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA thoughtful touch is servingA thoughtful touch is serving warm pistachios in the shell when you arrive. One of the best things about dining here is the privacy and elegance afforded by space between tables, so you can actually have a conversation with your company. Service is friendly and casual, and the food enjoyable with good accompaniments. The only downside is it took me half an hour to find a way out with all the narrow roads that are blocked off and end abruptly with no exit. The whole complex is really more like a military encampment than the luxury resort it supposedly is. Nevertheless, the dining room is pleasant.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMurray Circle's stunning viewMurray Circle's stunning view of the bay and the San Francisco skyline was only the beginning of our culinary adventure.
The restaurant on the former Ft. Baker military site, has been updated but retains its original splendor. Our party of four enjoyed a variety of wines and appetizers including fried asparagus which we unanimously voted "the best we had ever had". Our entrée choices were halibut and salmon, both cooked superbly; so tender the fish fell right of the fork.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an excellent experience.We had an excellent experience. The wine list is extensive, with great selections at all price points. If you are a carnivore, don't overlook the charcuterie board as a starter. Great service as well.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday girl rates it highlyMy bride loved the service from the time we walked in the door. She had the buratta with interesting greens to start, the grilled halibut as the main, and a tiny cheesecake for dessert. She said I would have given it fives all the way but the decor was a bit stark. She can't wait to go back.
My oysters were ok. The pork tenderloin was done medium with cauliflower several ways - fritters, gratin that was killer.
The only downside was leaving Ross at 82 degrees in summer heat jacket and sundress and hitting 59 degrees and 20 knot winds when we arrived. Fortunately there's complimentary valet.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food, service andWonderful food, service and atmosphere.

We toured the bar, across the hall, and I would love to come back for an evening cocktail someday--it's a gorgeous room.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful FindThis restaurant is a gem in all it has. Friendly to the family out for a day in a park, to those seeking a more formal venue. The food is wonderful, the staff lets you take your time between appetizers, salad and entree - no rushing you in and out here, and all in all a great dining experience.
This was my second time here and it matched the first in all aspects. We will return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe dining room staff is EXCELLENT.The dining room staff is EXCELLENT. I gave only three stars for service due to very poor manners and behavior of the maitre d'. It started the evening off on an bad footing. Our waiter was so kind and attentive, but not in an overbearing fashion. He gave us lots of time and paced the evening in a way that made us feel as though we were having dinner in his own house. What a wonderful evening the dining staff gave us!!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for special occasionsGreat for special occasions with your wife. Only negative issue is that you can not reserve an outside table.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWonder service, amazing food,Wonder service, amazing food, unforgettable view! We'll be back!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI cannot say too many goodI cannot say too many good things about Murray Circle. We have been fans since they first opened. The menu has gone through two major shifts and we are personally very happy with the current incarnation. Our server, Borhen Hammami, is a delight. Total gentleman, perfect, textbook service (this coming from a former server who is highly critical). The food this night was, as my husband said, the best he has ever had, anywhere. Asparagus salad for me followed by trout. Asparagus soup for him followed by halibut. Dessert for me was the buttermilk ice cream/waffle/rhubarb/butterscotch sauce. Yum. His was (don't remember, our minds are blanking...). Anyway, it was wonderful. The best part is the restaurant is quiet.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is excellent, butThe food is excellent, but what makes it truly special is the service that makes you feel like a welcomed guest. Erin is a smart and thoughtful server who makes the experience shine. She is a gem.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA unique place for very goodA unique place for very good food.

We had 5:30 reservations because that was all that was available but it turned out to be perfect as the sun went down and the view remained beautiful. Food was just incredible, every step of the way. Our server was pleasant and attentive without being intrusive and helpful with wine and entree recommendations. Outstanding experience for a special occasion.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to Murray Circle forWent to Murray Circle for my husband's birthday last weekend. Very pleased, we ordered the chef's tasting menu, they were able to substitute the lamb for fish. Service was impeccable. We will definitely come back. Arrived early and had oysters and a nice drink on the deck outside first, great drink menu. Tasting menu was really good. The only negative was the chocolate dessert which was somewhat bland, but there is so much food on the tasting menu that I could not finish the dessert anyway.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful service, beautifulWonderful service, beautiful and understated ambiance, and delicious food. The chilled asparagus soup was absolutely the best I have ever tasted, and the duck breast was perfectly cooked and seasoned. In addition, the cocktails were generous and well-made. The added treat at the end of our meal was much appreciated as we were celebrating a birthday during our visit. Overall, a great meal and a great value.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice, "Clubby" atmosphere,Nice, "Clubby" atmosphere, very comfy feeling, busy but not crowded ::: Warm pistachios greeted us at the table - who doesn't enjoy that? ::: Fantastic grain and seeded bread served (where can I buy it??!?) ::: Bone marrow was pretty and tasty, but difficult to eat ::: Two salads were tried, very nice presentation on both, the beet salad was rather unremarkable ::: Four diners, we all had the two offered fish dishes, both were visually presented well and with nice flavor and proper cooking ::: Menu in general seemed good albeit rather small with not a lot of choices ::: Service was spot on, they have that down pat...4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything here will enticeEverything here will entice your senses.

Chardonnay was a good price performer. Service could have been better (had to ask twice for burger condiments and entrees were distributed to the wrong parties). One of my Scottish guest left her eyeglasses on the table and though we were in the lobby for nearly 10 minutes waiting for our car no one alerted us to the glasses until we called from a long distance away. Surely, the bus boys saw the glasses but did not alert anyone. It will be costly to ship the glasses to Scotland.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMade a Lasting ImpressionI went to the restaurant at Cavallo Point to celebrate a birthday and we had a fantastic time! We were in a side room, which was fairly quiet, and it was a beautiful day...with views that couldn't be beat. Our food was delicious, our waiter was very attentive without being annoying, and it was a wonderful two-hour lunch. In fact, I have told everyone since that meal about what a terrific experience it was. A class act all the way, and I thought it was also reasonably priced.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy date and I had a greatMy date and I had a great time "brunching" but the only "negative" was that we felt the server was rushing us with the check before we'd finished our meal. Had the restaurant been full/crowded, I would have understood.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food in a good setting.Good food in a good setting. The comfy leather chairs and fireplace are the perfect setting for a mini retreat away from the hubbub of San Francisco. The mains were fresh and relatively simple, which seems appropriate to the local nature setting. The only semi-flop was the dessert. The temperature of the cake was room temperature and overall the taste was plain.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and very attentiveWonderful food and very attentive staff!
