    Cold and foggy, but the heater and the warm hospitality made for a cozy dinner. Our server, Sam, was helpful and responsive and she timed everything perfectly, making sure we had finished our appetizer before bringing out the mains and checking in unobtrusively to see if we needed anything else

    Food was very bland. The poke was ok but not superb , the frisée salad and crab Benedicts were not flavorful. Good things were the peach cocktail and the coffee and chocolate bread pudding. For the price, food quality should be excellent.

    Excellent spot for lunch - great views, service, and food. Reservations via OpenTable are confusing because they offer "standard" tables (meaning inside) and "high top" table with no explanation of what this means, and I don't think the restaurant has something called a high top table. And reservations are required for a table on the veranda, but this option is not provided. Open Table and Murray Circle really need to sort all this out.

    We were staying the night at Cavallo Point and met friends here as we heard the dining was superb. The noise was very loud and it was difficult to hear each other talk. As for the food, the entrees were generously portioned for the price, and the desserts were excellent. Our only complaint was that all four of the appetizers we had were overpriced for the size, but the quality was definitely high. Service was attentive and informed. We dined here again the following morning. The service wasn’t as upbeat as the night before - it was clear the server in our section had been overseated. But again, the food and portion size were wonderful and worth the price.

    Arrived for my reservation that I booked a week in advance for my family (including my 11 month old). Told on arrival because I didn’t write ‘outdoor seating please’ in the comments section of my reservation that we couldn’t sit outside. This was at 11:20am- multiple empty tables outside. Was told my reservation was ‘only good at the hotel lobby indoor restaurant’ Ridiculous!!!!

    I went into Murray Circle with low expectations as the hotel and restaurant have faded in recent years. But, the meal was good. Great waiter and very tasty food. The place is significantly overpriced for what you get ($20 appetizers, $30 basic chicken entree and $18 cocktails). We had a gift certificate we had to use. I was close to writing this place off in the last year given some poor meals, disorganized set up, etc. but I'll give it a second chance. The ongoing makeover and renovations will be interesting to watch and follow a number of years of lack of investment in my view.

    We’ve been eating at Murray Circle for years and always enjoy sitting on the patio and the usually terrific food. Maybe today was just a fluke but my meal, linguini with clams and shrimp, was just so so and my husbands risotto was tasteless. He barely ate it. The server rushed us to order, new experience there, but was otherwise pleasant and attentive. Of course you can’t beat the view of the golden gate, and my glass of rose was yummy. Just so disappointed with the food. We’ll probably wait a while to go back.

    It was easy to make a same day reservation. However, we were very disappointed in their new menu. The descriptions were not very appetizing, over priced and sadly not good (minus the short rib tacos that we had as a starter.) The service and ambiance were off. It was not busy at all for a Friday night which was surprising and sad to see. Hopefully they work it out and try to cater to the people who love this special place rather try to fix something that wasn’t broke.

    The fried chicken sandwich was terrible.Salmon was good. The chicken sandwich was two very thin slices of chicken breast deep fried and over cooked. Piatti’s is way better! Minuette sauce was a bit sweet. Pavlova stuck to my teeth - doesn't seem like it was made fresh that day.

    What a pleasant surprise! Notable difference in style and level of service since my last visit earlier this year. I felt like the attention to customer preferences and comfort were back to the levels experienced by myself and friends in the first few years after the restaurant opened. I have continued to frequent this restaurant a few times a year even though even before Covid-19 the level of service and quality of food were on a downhill slide but nothing in the area beats sitting out there on that patio with the terrific view. Kudos to the management! Will spread the word to friends.

    The location is stunning and waitstaff was excellent and accommodating. The food was good but lacked a little creativity and finesse, particularly given the rather high pricing. Decor is starting to feel a little dated/uncoordinated, and music was quirky.

    Waiter was terrific. Blue crab cakes excellent. Shrimp appetizer excellent - 6 lg cold/on ice shrimp. Bransino was good though nothing exceptional; as was the pasta dish (linguini w/2 shrimp and half dozen cherrystone clams. Steak was very good. Sorbet and fresh fruit dessert was excellent. Overall...delightful dining experience.
