Diner Reviews
  • "Bar business is booming there and I now understand why. I came a bit early, but this seemed to upset the hostess, who snapped at a waitress to seat me. Don't care to know about internal personnel problems and I probably wasn't the first diner to be early ever. For this quick bite I ordered 2 appetizers. Why on earth there was a sous vide egg with the sweetbreads only the cook would know. Sweetbreads are sufficiently inexpensive that the restaurant should not have to stretch this. The second item I ordered was fried brussel sprouts. Why on earth the cook felt moved to add crème fraiche to the sprouts escaped me. In addition, having to ask for bread before a meal, is another novel twist on stretching the restaurant's budget."

  • "We love Charlie Palmer we have been to most of his place on the west coast. This was our first time at the Burritt tavern. We loved it the our server Michael was amazing he told us to get this chocolate dessert that was to die for it taste like a sundae. The food and drinks were so good. We will be back I want to stay at the hotel too!"

  • "Searching Open Table for dinner spot sitting in Union Sq, Burritt Room looked perfect and we weren't disappointed. Cool space, friendly and knowledgable bartenders, intersting cocktails and fabulous food."

  • "In-person menu much more appealing than that posted on the web site; tons of great choices, and the food was uniformly excellent. Sweet, helpful waitress, excellent cocktails & cool railroad car-like booth -- very sexy! Packed bar scene (Friday night), but mellower in the restaurant. Very enjoyable!"

  • "This place was excellent. I think it doesn't do the volume of business it deserves because it is a bit out of the way. As more people find out about it, that will change. It's in a very chic, but small hotel on the second floor. You have to take a narrow stairway to get to it. But it's totally worth it. Excellent drinks and ambiance. The food was excellent as was the service. My mom couldn't finish her risotto so there was some left when the plates got cleared. The chef actually asked (in a nice way) if everything was alright with the food. (Of course it was great...she couldn't take it with her because she had a plane to catch). That went a long way with me. Try this place."

  • "I really like this place, and would love it only if the food was better. They've got the ambiance and service down, but the first reason I go to a restaurant is to eat a great meal, and unfortunately Burritt Room falls short. The food wasn't terrible, but for the price point we expected more; a lot more. Also, risotto is truly one of those dishes that shouldn't even be on the menu unless you can prepare it properly, and their soggy oatmeal-esque interpretation of a it was an embarrassment. I'll never dine here again, but the live jazz trio and talented bar staff are top notch. Go for drinks, but don't stay for dinner."

  • "Living in San Francisco, I don't find myself eating downtown a lot, but it is always great to find a spot like this where the food is great and so are the drinks. If you are looking for a great to grab a bite (they have lots of good small plate options), then you should pop in!"

  • "If you are not lookling for Burritt you won't find it. Upstairs at the Mystic Hotel near the Stockton tunnel. You need to find this place. Very cool hotel lobby leading you to a great space upstairs. Brick walls and retro chandaliers in the bar/entry. Trendier decor with a row of private booths in the dining area. Excellent food. Try the sourdhough pancakes and brussel sprouts. Amazing. Great selections on the menu. Many unique choices on the cocktail list. We've been dining in SF for over 20 years. Our waiter Ryan was the best waiter we've EVER had in The City. We are definitely bringing friends back to show off our find."

  • "What I loved: -Great atmosphere. Manages to feel both hip and old school. Love the banquette-style booths, and would request one next time! -Fantastic service. Our waiter was personable and attentive, but never overbearing. He made us feel special, which is always appreciated. -The charcuterie plate was yummy and beautifully presented. -The sourdough pancake with fried brussels sprouts was inventive and delicious. -Fantastic cocktails. What I didn't: -The tombo tuna salad was stringy and difficult to eat. The flavor profile didn't work for me. -The strawberry and rhubarb shortcake was tasty, but very low on the strawberries and rhubarb."

  • "With so many outstanding restaurant choices in San Francisco, you can definitely give the spot pass. The food is a way overpriced for the quality and quantity that you get."

  • "I made a last minute reservation for a small group at the Burritt Room for a Friday night. We arrived early, missing one member of the group, and we had a drink at the bar. The drinks and service were great, and there was a live band. Dinner was in a quieter area, and although the tables next to us were very close- luckily there were no diners to our immediate left and right. Our appetizers, meals, and wine were all very good and there were no complaints at the table! We liked the ambiance, the food, and the different vibe of the bar scene."

  • "On the night I visited, a Tuesday, Burritt was quite busy with what looked like business dinners, and there was jazz in the bar area. Our cocktails were delicious. The food was also very good, though the entrees were over-salted. The prices were a bit high ($22 for a burger?) but nothing outrageous by SF standards. There was a very large group that slowed down the kitchen just as we ordered, but the server graciously comped our salad as an apology for the wait. I'm generally skeptical of the dining options near Union Square, so it's nice to know I have a quality option for dinner or just a cocktail."

  • "Located upstairs in the recently renovated Mystic Hotel across from Stockton St. Garage (and same block as the Green Door), restaurant was a surprise. Large, high ceilings with brick wall and wall of paneled booths. Live jazz at the bar. Service was friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. Small plates are small so order enough. Wine list good, but pricey. Not easy to find, but worth it."

  • "had a nice night at the burritt recently. although the main course(s) were fairly unimaginative, the baby kale salad was great and the bourbon cocktail (modern large cube version of a manhattan) to start was phenomenal. the dining room was recently remodeled in tasteful modern style that accented much of the original wood and brick character; one could almost imaging humphrey bogart sauntering by on his way to order a manhattan, original version. service was great. overall a good but not outstanding, authentic SF experience."

  • "Don't let the lobby of the Mystic Hotel fool you... head straight up the stairs to the bar and restaurant. The bar has a great cocktails. Our VERY young waitress seemed overwhelmed by crowd and seems they need more people on the floor serving cocktails. I was pleasantly surprised by the bar scene and it's great for an initial drink before you move on for the evening. We decided to stay for dinner and glad we moved into the restaurant when the band started because it was already pretty loud for talking before the band started. The restaurant was goodm our waitress was excellent. Great timing on her pacing of our table. Loved little alcove tables but regular tables were so close it was like joining another party. Would definitely go back."

  • "Group of 4. We were seated in between two tables that had single diners, so strangers were listening to our conversation for the first half of our meal...they were then changed out for two couples, one of which was fighting in broken english...not distracting at all. Plenty of tables available, so I don't know why they sat us directly next to people. The service and food was on point. The wine list is pricey, so we stuck to cocktails and wine by the glass. Shared the kale caesar and the sourdough pancake to start and I went with the New York steak for my main. The sourdough pancake with brussels sprouts was my personal favorite. The older crowd enjoyed the jazz playing in the background."

  • "The drinks, food, and scene all make a good impression, but you get the distinct impression that the management isn't as talented as the chef and bartenders are. Everything we ate or drank was at least good and sometimes excellent, and the ambience was fun and cool without being too loud or hectic. On the other hand, I don't think we could ever figure out who our waiter was. There seemed to be at least three different hosts, and we stood around in purgatory for a little while before being seated. We had a green bean casserole that wasn't a casserole at all, though it tasted great. Even the decor seems to underutilize a great room. All in all, very recommendable, just needs a little management polish."

  • "I am always skeptical of restaurants in Union Square but the Burritt Room was a phenomenal experience. The sommelier was extremely knowledgeable, very friendly and very approachable. All of the food, from the house-made bread to the salads and entrees were absolutely delicious. The service was attentive and the ambiance is warm and inviting. We followed our meal with an after dinner drink in the bar area to listen to live jazz. Overall, a perfect evening."

  • "The restaurant felt put together without making you feel uncomfortable. The staff was friendly, welcoming, and knowledgable. They had an interesting variety of cocktails with a good spin on old classics, but I loved that serve anchor porter beers. Food was wonderful like an elevated gastropub."

  • "Based on the review, we picked this place for dinner prior to our show. Ambiance was great, service was great and the food was good. We were there when the restaurant opened so we were able to enjoy everything in just over an hour. We were told that they have a small kitchen so if it is crowded, do expect dinner to take longer. But we think it is worth it. Enjoy yourself, the food and the ambiance!"

  • "The ambiance and service were impeccable. The food that was served was for the most part plated attractively. We ordered and shared the pork, the portebello mushrooms as main dishes, terrine and pate as firsts , and brussel sprouts, and french fries as sides. The reason I rate the meal good but not great is that the main dishes were very simple and not very flavorful, though the pork was served at the perfect wellness. The Brussel Sprouts was the only dish that really stood out, You really have two options with french fries -- serve in a decent quantity and treat it as an alternative with bread or prepare them in a way that partially re-invents it. These did neither,"

  • "Excellent food which included. Kale Ceasar Salas Sweetbreads with Truffle Oil Brussell Sprouts New York Steak Lovely atmosphere. Low light. Great decor. However, the live music almost wrecked it for us. The bar and dining room spill into each other and the noise level was ridiculous. We were practically screaming at each other to be heard! Only go if there's no live music."

  • "I absolutely LOVE this restaurant. Great drinks, food and service. I only discovered it a few months ago and I have been 6 times. The bartenders are friendly and make perfect craft cocktails. The fries are the perfect side to a Poquito Picante cocktail!"

  • "Although the restaurant wound up being very good, we got off to a rough start. After being seated it took the staff a while to get to us at all. Once the staff did get to us we were told that the dine about town menu is for parties of less than 5 (we had 6 people). Let me be clear that the service from this point forward more than made up for these events, but not the best start to things. I didn't see any revolutionary offerings on the menu, but what was there was excellently prepared and generous in portion size. The wait staff was friendly and helpful as well. I have yet to find documentation for the party size limit for the dine about town menu."

  • "I went to this restaurant for dinner during Restaurant Week. The server was very friendly when we were seated but the service was very slow. Our three course dinner took 2.5 hours. I had to ask our server to check on our appetizers - only one was a hot dish and a table who had been seated after us received theirs first. We had waited at least 30 minutes. She brought them out and said they had been waiting for her to pick them up - miscommunication with the kitchen. The food tasted good but I was a little disappointed with my cut of meat. It was one of the more expensive items on the menu but hadn't been trimmed properly. The tables were close together so not great for romantic or private conversations. Overall, good but overpriced."

  • "Burritt room has great ambiance, and wonderful live music. However, the food is so-so, and the service really needs work. The hostess asked not to even speak to my party until the entire group was present, and then it took us over a hour to get our entrees. Our waiter was nice, but he completely abandoned us after taking the food orders. We sat with empty wine glasses for about 30 minutes before managing to flag him down. I might come back for wine and music, but for the price point, there are definitely better options."

After dinner, we were donned with New Years head gear and we had a wonderful rest of the evening in the bar area with live music, confetti and a festive, fun spirit with a few more Berlinetta's :) We will be back for dinner, drinks and quite possibly another NYE next year. Thanks, Burritt Room!"
