I've dined at Murray Circle in the past and had wonderful experiences - food, service, ambiance - this time was unfortunately not the case. We arrived a few minutes early to our reservation and the hostess was able to set us up at our table quickly, and provided us with some coloring for the two kiddos in our party.
The restaurant was half empty when we arrived. After being seated, and had our glasses of water refilled twice, however, we then waited 15 minutes before a server came to check in on us and take our order. When the server did arrive to take our order, there was no apology for the wait, rather a very brusque and distracted bit of service.
The food was good - which is the one upside to this experience, but the service was truly dismal and sadly made us not want to return again.
The restaurant is quite old and not updated. I understand the ambiance is its selling point, but a refresh on the pain and cleaning the carpet would give it a much needed uplift. The service was quite poor as well. We waited 45 minutes for our appetiser, which then came with our meal. I would have understood if the restaurant was busy, but there were only 3-4 tables of diners. The food was also pretty average.
I would not recommend this restaurant. there are far better ones in SF and Sausalito. Go for a walk on the green if you want the view, but the food is not exceptional.
My sister and I were celebrating her birthday The service was wonderful attentive without being too persistent Food was perfect I highly recommend for an enjoyable meal
The setting cannot be beat, but once inside for dinner, the room is not particularly memorable, Food was good but nothing out of the ordinary. For the price-point, they really need to work on service, ours was not great.
Changed the menu and is not exciting, or creative. Plus vegetarian options dried up.
The salads and entrees were excellent and the desserts were outstanding. The service was very good.
Great food. Fab setting. Quite. Service suffered from limited English by servers we had this lunchtime.
The beet salad was superb! My duck breast was prepared in a grain crust which had a crunchy texture which I found displeasing. The dessert of lemon tart was delicious.
We walked the bridge and said we want to check that place out, ended up that’s where Murray Circle was. Beautiful day!!! Early Valentines Day. Would go back again for sure.
Food and view was amazing. Service was lacking. When I have to flag down the bus boy. There’s a problem.
Murray Circle continues be excellent & a favorite place - especially for lunch on a beautiful day like Friday. The food was delicious & our waiter, Francisco was great.
treat as always. Beautiful location, spectacular views. Service friendly and efficient. Food good. The fries are very good,
It's been a couple of years since we ate at Murray Circle and the food quality is not performing well. The drinks were fine. The service was terrific and we found the food both boring and too expensive. Foe some reason they split the cauliflower soup between 2 people? They couldn't tell the flavor and there was a small amount in each bowl. I had the foie gras. We all love foie gras but not this time. It was way too strong and I took 1 bite and passed the rest to my friends. They each ate a bite or two and said the same thing. No thanks. The two other guests has the Bavette steak which they liked. It was tasty, tender and thinly sliced with wild mushrooms. I has the black cod in parchment. The fish was cooked just fine. The vegetables were not. They were tough and hard and needed a bunch more cooking and it was a very sloppily presented dish. Not much flavor and a wedge of lemon but no sauce at all. It really didn't work for me anyway. The two desserts were OK but they were trying too hard. Sorry. I love the restaurant esthetics but not the food. Sad. We won't be back for a long time. The dishes are too expensive not to be decent and there aren't that many choices in the first place.
Service was slow and inattentive - had to ask several times for help.
Beautiful day and we would have preferred to be outside - didn't
realized, no reservations for outside.
Our waiter was outstanding. The best any of the four of us have had in years. The bread was fabulous. The cauliflower soup was good but the flavor very vague. I ordered it because I like cauliflower but it could almost have been anything. The same for the dessert we shared. A miso burnt chocolate affair with no distinctive flavor, least of all chocolate. Loved my fresh cod cooked in parchment. Those who ordered the fish stew said good but not great. We also ordered sunchokes as an experiment. I wanted to see what rye cream was. Again, nothing jumped out at me. We spent quite a bit if money and had a great time but will probably scale back back going forward and choose places with specific cuisines.
Great spot (ambiance/ decor), ok food, weak service
We have been to Murray's Circle many times and it is always excellent. We had a very private and cozy corner table near the fireplace celebrating a birthday. The service was excellent, and food was creative and delicious. Wine recommendation was right on par. Thank you!
Fantastic and enjoyable experience, one our party of 4 will always remember. They hit a perfect balance on all aspects of great food, presentation, environment and service . A rare find in Marin. Have the tasting menu and spend a glorious night at Murray Circle.
was there with a guy that is a a founder of a large Omaha co he liked it was looking for jordan wine
Good restaurant in a great setting. Located at Cavallo Point, Fort Baker, the restaurant itself doesn’t have much of a view but the surrounding area is spectacular. The food was good if a little pricey. Everyone there was very friendly, attentive and accommodating. There is also a nice bar adjacent to the dining room. The bar also serves food (same menu), has a cozy fireplace and a pleasant overall vibe. Wouldn’t necessarily recommend Murray Circle for the food but would most certainly return for the scenery and ambiance.
We had a great time! The views were spectacular and eating on the porch made things easier with a little one. The food was excellent and beautifully served.
a bit of a let down. overpriced for the fact the food wasn't great - smoked salmon clearly was frozen prior. the desert was good but the desert didn't make up for the rest of the meal and the fact the service was poor as well
Cocktails were superb and with a wonderful twist!
For sure more creative than the salad!
Had the Bloody General Baker ( vs Mary )
This is a wonderful restaurant. The food is interesting and delicious. The service professional and friendly. Noise level low. Seating not on top of one another. And I appreciate that the dinnerware is our local Heath company.
Murray Circle is a beautiful restaurant, with outdoor dining. The service is impeccable and the food is very good but not exotic. It is a great place to have a relaxing lunch or dinner and enjoy being in Marin while viewing the GGB and SF.
Mushroom sandwich was cold. Food was bland and very mediocre.
Meet friends, take a walk, enjoy the breathtaking views, watch the sunset from the Golden Gate Bridge and then indulge in a superb dinner. The best.
Good great, BUT once again...service issue, arrived on-time for my reserved OT reserv that included online note for a 2-top table sitting across from each other...but NO, hostess says they did NOT do that...we wait a bit, pretty uncomfortable & indifferent hostess, then our pre-requested 2-top was found...then all good. What a BAD & sad way to be greeted...like a funeral!
One of our favorite restaurants! We had a wonderful dinner at Murray Circle; the food was excellent, as always, and our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive.
