Food was barely acceptable. Had a crab meat Benedict. The two eggs that were supposed to sit nicely on top of the crab meat fell off to the plate; then the crab meat was cold, making the bread underneath cold as well. Presentation wise, not very appealing. Cappuccino was barely warm. No second chance for this place. Plus service was just acceptable- you won’t feel welcomed at all.

This place was perfect on all accounts. Beautiful venue, attentive service, and excellent food. We were in San Fran for a week. We ate at a few of the top restaurants. This was still among my favorite meals while visiting. The menu changes, but the Beef tenderloin and seafood stew were both amazing.

Beautiful place! There were 4 of us, and to be fair, the others loved their food while mine was so so. The sauce for my chilled shrimp was bland but the shrimp were excellent.Requested cocktail sauce was like ketchup. My salad, while very fresh, was over dressed. Perfect service.

We had a very nice meal here . The service was terrific, it was quiet, and it's a beautiful location, of course. The food was fairly creative and well prepared, but not quite good enough to justify the prices. But the experience overall was very good.

I went to Murray Circle for a Birthday dinner with 8 friends. The food and service was great, we had a fantastic evening. It was a Monday evening so we had most of the restaurant to ourselves, hopefully didn't disturb the few others trying to enjoy their dinners.

Brunch menu changed, some of the best offerings no longer available (chicken, egg and hash), my burger was dry an overcooked, service was poor, coffee was not listed on the menu and the only option we were given was French Press, which must have cost around $6 and no refills were offered. Coffee pot used to be put right on the table.
I've dined for brunch many times at Murray Circle and prices have gone way up and service and value way down.

Love this place! However we had an elderly gentleman fresh out of hospital joining us and our dinner was delayed. Other dishes were provided in the interim which was most appreciated. The Pekin Duck was inedible though. I had to discreetly spit out the chewy mess behind my napkin to place on my plate.. I was so filled up with oysters and fois gras all ended well.

Nice room, quiet atmosphere. We arrived for a 7:45 dinner. The room was half full (and cleared out as the evening went on). Our host sat us in the middle of two other two-top tables, so we were all clustered together in this big open room. So, our intimate dinner date was not so intimate. Honestly, of all the tables in the room, why did they have to seat three tables elbow to elbow next to each other?

We ordered dry martinis to start and ended up getting dirty martinis. Sent them back.
Later, we ordered two different glasses of wine. One arrived, the other didn't. Had to ask for it after several minutes.

Food was good, but extremely small portions. We left hungry. Came home and ate some leftover pizza.

Don't need to go here again.

It pains me to write a negative review for a restaurant that I've really liked over the years. I've had two lunches here since there was a change in the menu and chef. The new menu is limited and the food mediocre. Much too much money for the quality of the menu. The servers, on the other hand, are excellent. I hope that the food improves to the level of the previous menu and chef. The atmosphere is really lovely and the restaurant should be allowed to be as special as it can be.

I've been several times and have consistent results. The bar, lunch and dinner menus are interesting, several of the dishes are delicious. The service is friendly but often kind of disorganized. The setting is convenient and beautiful, and helps mitigate the high prices.

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.

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.
