This was a special treat during our Covid 19 year. We felt very safe, dining outdoors on a beautiful evening.

We were grateful for the Covid precautions Murray Circle has in place. We waited quite a while to be served and when presented the food was very good. Our waiter was fine, nothing exemplary. The setting is so peaceful.

Food and service were spectacular both times we had breakfast. Ambiance is great, but slightly reduced due to the plastic sheeting and its support structure that distorts/blocks the gorgeous views. Just nit-picking really, but still.

I am grateful I discovered this hidden gem. It is my new ‘go to’ when family and friends come to visit or if my girlfriends and I just want to enjoy a nice evening out. Everything is perfect here; great service, good ambiance, plenty of parking and only a short drive over the amazing Golden Gate bridge.

Super slow service we sat for nearly 10 minutes before someone approached us, upon greeting the soft spoken limited English gentleman couldn’t take our order. However he came back stating he would take the order.
Food just ok for the price, no coffee refills, I left the table and told my wife to pay since I am in the business and it was a complete sacrilege to watch the poor quality service

We used to love going to Farley Bar. The food used to be really good, given that it came from the Murray Circle kitchen. Now it seems, during the pandemic, that the chef must be on vacation and whoever is left doesn't really care. The prices are still steep, but honestly the food we had was nothing to write home about. The risotto was sticky and soggy and bland. The Murray Circle version of Waldorf salad was OK except for one this: it seemed to have no dressing on it at all, so it was just a pile of apples, nuts and other things. The upper level balcony is all lit up and looks festive, but we were on the lower balcony, which was quite dark and gloomy. Too bad. Total $$ was more than $300 for three people. Not going back until the pandemic is over. Then we'll give it another try to see if it's come back to life. Not happy.

I am a local and have always loved to visit this bar and the restaurant. We went there for a birthday dinner. The food and location are still great, but service has changed. A snooty hostess and uninspiring waiter that seemed like he'd rather be home just changes the mood. I get it's Covid times but this place has so much to offer and can be really great again. Fix the service, place a candle (and maybe a table cloth) on the tables to match the quality of the food and location, and you're back in business.

The food and service was fantastic. I felt like all their Covid protocols made me feel safe eating outdoors. Lots of heaters and a beautiful view of the Golden Gate bridge. Our server Paul was wonderful and suggested a great wine. We celebrated my husband's birthday and would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Just an amazing place and one of the best Covid-safe fine dining experiences in the Bay Area.

Felt very safe and clean. The timing of tables around us made it so we still had our masks on while those nearest ate, and they finished by the time we ate. The weather was surprising beautiful and not foggy, so much so they even put up umbrellas to help with the heat from the sun. The food was delicious and waitstaff was friendly and helpful.

we were seated outside on 2nd floor for lunch. Nice views of the lawn and marina to water and city beyond. they put up umbrellas for shade, and good waiter. My beet and pear salad was very good (could have used more beets), the fries pretty good and my friend's Croque Madame was good.
The park property is nice - take a walk up to the WW2 historic overlook above the Yacht club (which is also historic and only outdoor service for drinks + ice cream at Travis Marina bar...used to have some live music). The pier also has great views.

We had a beautiful lunch on the porch at Murray Circle restaurant. It was a blustery, rainy day, but between the heat lamps, the plastic enclosure, and the shade, we were cozy.
The Covid19 protocol is excellent! They've thought of everything to keep us safe and well fed!

Lovely ambiance. Good oysters.
Service this time was poor: no one came near our table for 15 minutes.
We were not told that you add $3.00 to a straight up martini.
It was our anniversary, and we were disappointed.

This was our first time there. We were very grateful to be seated outside on the patio. It was getting a little chilly but they did have a heat lamp. Definitely bring a thick coat. The food was delicious and our server was great. We noticed how they calmly and kindly addressed the table next to us who were over their allotted 2 hour limit. Overall, a lovely experience especially during this difficult COVID time.
