Of course the setting is absolutely gorgeous, it's such a shame that the service is so bad, seems like such an easy fix when you are located in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

We were taken to lunch on a Friday by friends to Murray Circle Restaurant. The room is wonderful and service was great. The lunch was good, I had the taster's lunch with a house slider burger that was solid. I'd recommend going solely for the view and a visit to Ft. Baker. It is a local treasure for sure. Parking...

We met friends here. Got the 76x over, then scooted down under the Golden Gate Bridge on a twisty path (with cyclists) to the harbour below. Behind it is this treasure beyond a stretch of grass. Lovely sunny day and this has great views back over the city. Didn't get to sit outside but interior is nice; dark wood and... More

We looked the location and the atmosphere of the old buildings. The food was disappointing. We expected so much more for what we were paying. The service was slow and the food was over cooked. Our beef loin was tough. The waiter didn't know his menu and pretended to be an expert at it. We walked away very disappointed.

We stopped here for lunch on our bike trip from Fisherman's Wharf to Sausalito and was the highlight of our trek. Beautiful restaurant & lodge located on National Park Land. Neat experience to be in the city but seem so far away.

We had perfect weather for our weekend at Cavallo Point, which certainly helped. Both days we are breakfast here out on the porch with the sun just coming up in the sky. The french press coffee was very good, but the star of the show was the gluten free waffle - best one I've had. Delicious! Service was top notch.
