I was not aware of this lodge until I came to stay nearby with friends. I made a reservation at the last minute and it was an excellent dinner with great service by Tim.

Dinner was great! We ordered a last drink after dinner and wanted to take it next-door to Murray bar. They were very sensitive about allowing someone to bring a drink in from the dining room. Understandable given the limited capacity of the bar and recent Covid restrictions going back over a year. We ended up enjoying our drink and tipping again to make sure the wait staff was happy.

There was absolutely nothing wrong with our meal, in fact the appetizers were excellent including the short ribs, crab cakes, burrata, and poke. My half chicken was excellent as was my friends Salmon. The reason for the 4 star review is the value. I felt it was overpriced.

We had a total 5* experience with perfect weather, phenomenal views of the Golden Gate Bridge, historic Fort Baker, most of the San Francisco Skyline, and the very blue SF Bay from our outdoor table. With the provided heaters, it was just right. Our lunch was both extremely tasty and presented very attractively and sized just right for a lighter lunch. The service was thoughtful and available in just the right quantity as we were visiting with out of town friends and even though we took 2.5 hours for lunch no one hustled us to leave. Free valet parking was just the icing on the cake!

We were given a table in a dark hallway corner passageway for the waiters, even though we were resort guests and had indicated it was our anniversary. Watched other guests being seated at « reserved locations » something we thought à four star hotel would handle for us in planning the seating.
After two attempts we were relocated to a high top table in the bar. Management offered complementary champagne which was a nice gesture but too little too late. Rude hostess, one very rude waiter. Bar staff was friendly

My favorite venue for special friends and out of town guests. We loved the Thai Chicken Watermelon salad and the Sumac Salmon BLT. Both were so Yummy! Our waiter suggested the perfect wine pairing to have with our lunch...Salt (something?)...a delicious white. He even offered a tasting of a couple wines since we were ordering a bottle. Would definitely order it again. Always delicious, beautiful and relaxing. Enjoy!

We thought that the food was excellent; the salads were very fresh, the salmon and halibut entrees were flavorful without overseasoning, and the desserts were beautiful.

Main dining room service was very friendly and effective, but a little slow.

The bar is superb and recommended even for meals (same kitchen).

A+ atmosphere even while rebounding from COVID.

Party of 9 seated 4/5. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Service was off. Wait staff were professional but clearly overtasked. I suspect staffing shortage due to pandemic. That didn't interfere with our enjoyment of the experience. Been here before and will return.

We always LOVE eating outside & with a view like theirs, eating outside is a no-brainer! The heaters & the plastic on the railings to block the wind are also helpful. (The latter does impede the view a bit though.)
Just a WONDERFUL (if pricey) place!

The oysters seemed to have been opened an hour or so. Not a bit of brine. Charcuterie plate meats were dry maybe not sliced fresh The rest of the meal was 4 star. I’m used to 5 stars at this restaurant. Been here many times. Disappointed but will return. Hopefully this was a fluke.

Food is excellent. Service left a lot to be desired, especially at such a high end resort. First day we waited over 10 minutes for someone to come by after the meal was clearly finished. Second morning we waited 20 minutes between ordering coffee and the waited coming by to take our food order.
