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 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 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.

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! You will leave pampered, full, and taken very well care off! My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Murray Circle and found this place perfect for the occasion.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Anniversary dinnerExcellent food, Cavello point is a hidden gem !! Comfortable and quiet too !3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI used to own a resturantI used to own a resturant and I cannot speak highly enough about this experience. The Service was outstanding as was the food. This is the "Gold Standard" for resturants in the bay area.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat but not amazing food.Four of us enjoyed two different starters, four different entres, and two desserts. I have some dietary restrictions and was delighted to learn that a special menu had been created for me. Most places offer me a dry salad or a plain piece of fish, so this was a huge positive - everything sounded fantastic and the other diners tempted.
I would have given 5 stars based on the food had we not eaten there before. The food was excellent, but lacked the cutting edge creativity that kept us going back and being guests. I still rave about a watermelon starter that had been infused with extra flavor via a vacuum process that I had when the restaurant first opened. Now, each of had a meal comparable to another good restaurant.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMReally outstanding food, withReally outstanding food, with exceptional service. It was locals night so there was live music next door at the bar but it wasn't too loud or problematic.
