My reservation was with Open Table - don't do this! Call the restaurant if you don't mind being put on hold for ?? minutes. I had to make a time change and when we got to restaurant discovered that out table would be inside instead of out as was confirmed in the original reservation. A discussion with the hostess ensued - no dice! We ate inside on what was one of the most sensational days in the Bay Area. Very , very disappointing.

I came here for a Saturday brunch. What a great surprise this gem is! It is a hotel restaurant but it rivals any good brunch place in the City. We splurged and got a lot of items. The Meyer Lemon pancakes and they were superb. You can't tell the are gluten free. The meat/cheese tray was great. The Thai Watermelon Salad was the star! It is a must order. We also loved the burrata - delicious. We had the chia parfait and it was okay, but the only dish we thought we could do without. The outdoor seating has a breath taking view of Golden Gate Bridge. I live in San Francisco and I would come across the bridge for this.

Love to eat here and enjoy the view. We celebrated my daughter's 30th birthday at the spa and then had brunch at Murrary Circle. Had a simple scramble and it was cold. :(. Normally would have sent it back but given the current Covid situation and lack of staff, decided not to but was really bummed out. Cold eggs, no good.

Both the receptionist and server were personable, attentive and professional. All wore masks and kept safe distances.
The staff overall could not have done more to make our evening perfect.
Other diners were the only downside. They were loud and inconsiderate of people trying to enjoy an evening out.

Way overpriced for what you get!

Some nice views and our waiter was helpful.

Otherwise ….. I would definitely spend my money elsewhere.

Asparagus fritters & roasted baby carrots were fabulous! The wine list is extensive, but pricey. Look for reasonably priced bottles on the by-the-glass list.

Beautiful dining room for a special occasion meal/celebration. Outdoor balcony seating, but, only for an exceptional beautiful day when its not windy or cold.
Social distancing is practiced with tables spaced far away from each other.
Very friendly and attentive staff.
Excellent grilled salmon BLT and avacado. NY Steak was just OK, not very tender and smothered in wine sauce. Half of the plated with loaded with umanmi fries that were enough for 3 people, that was excellent. Fries dusted with porcini mushroom powder, parmasan cheese, parsley.

Ordered the Salmon BLT. The bread was stale, and the salmon was two "tiny" end pieces over-cooked. Barely any salmon on the sandwich at all. Seems quality of their food has declined significantly.

There was only one other table in the restaurant and we had to ask for a few things repeatedly.

Great ambience with views from terrace. Food at lunch was very good, with a variety of selections for every palate. The team from front desk to table service is attentive, friendly and welcoming, without being intrusive, which adds to the enjoyment.
