    I made the reservation more than a month ago specifically to be outdoors. When we got there, we were told outdoor seats are all sold out so we can sit indoors. The food was alright, price is high for the small portion. Nothing special about the service. When we finished and stepped out, many of the outdoor seats were still empty.

    Our brunch at Murray Circle was disappointing. The service was spotty (although the waiter and helpers were friendly, we had to ask for drinks list, then they only brought one for three people, then we were told that they were only serving beer and wine, then when we expressed disappointment the waiter asked the bartender and he agreed to serve cocktails). The watermelon chicken salad had very little watermelon.

    The service was great but the food was not good. My husband and I both had the pork chop, which was tough and overdone, with some kind of strange spice in the preparation served on a bed of bitter spinach. Very disappointing, especially for the price. Great location but I’m not sure I’ll return. (I’m local.)

    We enjoyed our hamburger and our steak. They were cooked just right and were very tasty. We shared the pavlova dessert which had a unique taste and was nicely presented. The staff was helpful and friendly. The Fort Baker site north of the Golden Gate Bridge is quite beautiful. We recommend Murray Circle to you.

    Graduation celebration with 3 generations of family. While we were unable to get a private room, the staff went out of their way to arrange seating other guests in other areas so we would have a more quiet and intimate experience for the elderly family members (91 and 85 years old) who were hard of hearing. Very much appreciated and helped make it a wonderful experience for all. Thank you very much!!

    Amazing experience at Murray on June 7th after all day long attending RSA Conference. The restaurant is in a quiet location with a tremendous view of the Golden Gate Bridge. The restaurant assistance was very supportive providing the best table outdoors. All the service and food were delicious! We had a very good experience there. Thanks, Fábio Sobrinho

    I have eaten at Murray Circle numerous times and love their food and ambiance. My rating reflects a breakdown in their reservation process, specifically for requests for outdoor seating. Over the last 8 months, I have stayed at Cavallo Point 3 times and booked meals at Murray Circle each time. For at least 3 reservations, they have made a mistake. I'm generally pretty forgiving, but two of these were for special birthdays and I just can't understand why mistakes keep getting made and, more importantly, why they don't seem to care. The last time, I booked through the concierge of the hotel (3+ months in advance!!) figuring that that would be failsafe.. it wasn't. This weekend, I booked through OpenTable (~2 months ahead this time) figuring that might better align with their processes. When we arrived for my husband birthday weekend, they said that, yes, the reservation did show that we requested outside, but whoever transferred the reservation must not have noticed. (They said that OpenTable had an option to click on outdoor seating, but that option wasn't available when we booked... perhaps because we booked so early, so I made a request in the notes.) Since they were fully booked outside, we were out of luck (and since we had our dog with us, we couldn't eat indoors, which is why we booked outside!). It was terribly disappointing that our special birthday plans were disrupted and even more so that they never apologized or tried to make it right in any way. Basically, they just said "too bad," we can't help you. The outdoor bar next door is "first come, first serve" and they wouldn't even guarantee that they would hold a table there for us. Most puzzling for me is that if I want to come back, I have no idea how to ensure that my reservation will be honored. So, my advice is, don't trust that your reservation will be handled correctly and double/triple check a few weeks ahead and a few days ahead... you shouldn't have to do this, but might need to.

    You just cannot beat the view from Murray's Circle, especially if you dine on the front porch. You see both the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate, with the beautiful panoramic view of (my hometown), San Francisco. Well, I do love the food and the staff is always pleasant and makes sure you are well taken care of. Don't miss out on this gem of a restaurant, along with the location.

    Unfortunately, what is typically a lovely experience suffered from a discombobulated wait staff. The food had some “mishaps” as well. The salmon BLT had no bacon. 10 minutes after we ordered cappuccinos, waiter told us that the espresso machine was broken. But even after that, they could not get the drink order correct. There is a lunch menu that does not start until 11 AM and even though it was five minutes of 11, they wouldn’t even write down the order and deliver it to the kitchen at 11. They literally made us wait until 11 before we could even place the order.

    The hostess and manager were both pretty rude. Not the first time I’ve run into this there. I wasn’t aware of a change on the app where you had to specify outdoor seating. I booked the same exact way within the last few months and had zero issues. I have two kids unable to be vaxxed due to age and told them that’s why we didn’t feel ok sitting inside. After going back and forth with the hostess where she was snippy, she just walked off and left us there. After 5-7 minutes/seeing others seated, I went to inquire. The manager snapped at me that they were moving things around to accommodate. We eventually got seated outside but wasn’t the best way to start a super expensive brunch. Probably won’t be back for a while.

    We visited MC on Saturday 5/29 for a special Bday celebration. Outdoor dining, usually a special experience was disrupted by wind despite shades being lowered. On two occasions, full glasses of water fell over the table. Service was inconsistent. We we not reminded to take home special desert pastries. Appreciated fact that no corkage charge was applied.

    The service was nice, although a bit slow, which was unexpected because the restaurant was nearly empty; it was a Monday early evening. Chicken was delicious, perfectly cooked, but the gratineé was nothing to write home about. Oysters were fresh and worked well with a crisp white wine. Their wine list clearly has had a lot of thought put into it. Eclectic and diverse wines from all over the world!

    It took 30 minutes for someone to take our drink order. Seemed very short staffed. One guy was manning the front door, taking drink orders and serving food. The service rating is based on the slow start to service. Once our order was taken the service improved. Would be nice to have more than one or a change in fish options.

    Ambiance is always lovely. Service was ok. Food was poor : hamburger was way over cooked. ; The veggie wraps were just not tasty with not enough variety and although advertised as spicy harissa, the chef used too much ; my husband’s salmon was good, but the potatoes were not. Sorry for the poor review about the food. Maybe yesterday was an off day.

    Absolutely gorgeous location with stunning city skyline and Golden Gate Bridge views from the tables on the front porch which all have very effective gas heaters. Food and drink were also top-notch but the service was a little uninspired. Based on service alone, I probably wouldn’t come back—this one’s all about location, location, location.
