These guys take pride in their craft cocktails, and for good reason. They put a lot of care into each one, so if you're a cocktail fan this is worth a visit.
They also had just introduced a mushroom bread pudding to the menu, and my wife (a pastry chef) was a fan.

Was on a business trip and
Was on a business trip and meet up with a co-worker for drinks and a steak dinner during the work week. I used Open Table to find a steak place in the Union Square area. And the description and pictures seemed to entice me. All I can say is the description and pictures don't even describe who fantastic both the bar and restaurant actually are. The bar has their specialty drinks that are really great as well as a nice wine list. The food in the restaurant exceeded all expectations. And the service was exactly the right amount checking in to make sure we were doing good without being in your face and trying to kick you out for the next reservation. I will be back on my next trip into town.

Twice in 24 hours!
We enjoyed our evening at Burritt Room! The poutin fries, oysters, cowgirl creamery plate, and beet small plate were all amazing! Lovely wine list with a wide price point. Upon leaving we noticed their Easter Brunch sign. We returned at noon the next day to enjoy a fabulous 2 course brunnch complete with bottomless mimosa and bloody mary bar ( with bacon and oyster accompaniment!!) We have already planned to stay at this boutique hotel and dine here during next visit! Thank you Burritt Room staff for a delicious and entertaining 24 hours!!

Glad we came!
The menu was inventive and interesting. The food was marvelous--excellent, fresh ingredients--well prepared and presented. The service was excellent--timely, responsive, and cordial. The ambiance is comfortable, clean and sleek, and not fussy (yay!). The cocktails were fun and tasty. We're coming back! P.S. the bar scene looks like lots of fun with a 3 piece-jazz combo!

Great find near uniion square
We had a great dinner with another couple here on Thursday nite. Food was excellent as was the wine. Enjoyed our private booth with curtains. Kept the noise at bay. The Mac and cheese were the best I have ever had. The only downside is they do not serve any light beer. Disappoint for my husband. With "tavern" in your name it is reasonable to expect a bigger selection of beer.

tasty food but service lacking
The food was great. No complaints there. Drinks and wine were also great.
However, the service was lackluster and inattentive. I would expect better, especially for a larger group. Waiting 15 minutes after sitting down to have a server ask if we want drinks is a little much. And given that the restaurant was only half full on a Friday night, there was really no excuse.
5/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, good time
I 've dined here a couple of times and I always had a great time. The salmon was very good, in fact my husband wanted to eat it all off from my plate!! I did miss the broccoli salad with bacon ( they've changed the menu since the last time ive been there) but no worries coz they added more good stuff. I love the ambience, the lighting and overall appeal of the restaurant.

Was looking for a place with California cuisine to take out of town guests to. This place more than hit it. The bar scene was great as was the restaurant. The food was excellent and we loved the live jazz. I will definitely be recommending it!
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went there with girl and friend. Got a great table. Terrific ambiance.
5/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Before dining here, I've only
Before dining here, I've only had their cocktails which were delicious (oaxacan crusta and poquito picante) ! Our waiter was very considerate and awesome. We split a couple dishes (baby spring mix salad with chicken sausage, and their handcrafted pappardelle) which was plenty. Of course, we added a bottle of pinot noir (Decoy by Duckhorn). Food was very good and drinks even better. Good place to go grab a drink and snack at the bar.

Great drinks / lounge scene.
Great drinks / lounge scene. Food was ok, but wouldn't return just for dinner.

Second time at this restaurant and still love it. We enjoyed the dine about town menu and it was delicious. We had a special occassion and they gave us one of the booths with the curtains. High recommend it and it is still somewhat of a hidden gem.
Keep up the good work Burritt!
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and jazz too!
What a find! Read about Burritt Room and tavern when it opened but didn't get the chance to visit until the Dine Around Town last Friday. It was perhaps my favorite Dine Around experience ever in the City! Everything clicked- a well planned and executed 3 course meal with interesting and reasonable wine pairing and terrific service! The fun vibe and great music and energy just topped off a 4 star evening. Highly recommend! I will be returning for sure.

Two people at the table had meat that was under-cooked. medium rare was really rare to walking off the table. otherwise all other was just great. server did forget to order one salad.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for a celebration
Went here with a friend to continue celebration two achievements on our end. The place was quiet, I'm assuming because of it being a Monday, and the service was excellent. I will be coming back!
6/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We'd been here in January for an anniversary dinner. This time we returned for a group dinner, and it was a hit. They were very flexible with changes to the size of our group. In a fairly diverse group, everyone was very happy with their experience. The menu options are interesting enough for the foodies and standard enough for the less adventurous.
I started with a salad with avocado, bacon and a horseradish dressing. So good! I ordered the salmon for my entree. It was perfectly cooked but a bit too salty. Still, I devoured it along with its minimal accoutrement. Order a side if you're hungry.
Our server was warm, friendly and helpful. The bussers were slow. We had ask for bread, and it took too long for them to clear our plates.

Great Jazz, Drinks, Food
What more could you ask for... Definitely the gem of the block, but if you are looking for a small intimate location for cocktails with fun mixologists, a dinner menu that will make you indecisive and some great wines... this is your place. I took a group of 10 co-workers and had rave reviews from all. Will definitely go back!
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good times, great drinks
I've been here several times to visit the great bar. The drinks are delicious and the punch bowls are great for groups. Finally got a chance to dine here and the food holds up to the drinks' reputation. WIll be back for sure!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good choice in the neighborhood
This is the 3rd time I've eaten dinner here with different sized groups. Food as always been very good. Service has gone from poor to very good, so I hope that's a trend. Lots of places that cater to tourists in this part of SF. Burritt Room & Tavern seems to be looking for repeat customers.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Laid back Tavern with good food
Comfortable with a creative flair food. Good wine list - not deep but broad.

Don't Miss Burritt Room & Tavern!
We recently had a wonderful meal at Burritt Room & cannot wait to go back. The atmosphere reminds of me old time San Francisco restaurants with a few modern touches that give it a contemporary feel. The bar which is straight out of Sam Spade's Maltese Falcon and perfect for pre-dinner cocktails or a romantic rendezvous. The restaurant is to the left and packed with tables filled with enthusiastic diners that can make it a little hard to hear your companion. We were greeted & promptly seated, were sent a generous salumi platter from the chef, & settled in to enjoy ourselves. The menu is short but varied with something for everyone. I was able to easily find several gluten-free options. Try the halibut, it was outstanding!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food; Great Staff!
I had steak tartare followed by the Halibut dish, My associate had the risotto and then the steak. All of the dishes were well prepared, beautifully presented, and very very tasty.
Conor (Restaurant Manager) and Ryan (waiter) were fantastic.

Great cocktail list and live
Great cocktail list and live music. The salmon was excellent though the portion would have been small for my husband. The service was friendly and attentive.

Nice gem in the neighborhood
Very good food and some good wines on the list. I like the atmosphere of this place and the bar next to the restaurant is a nice addition if you want to keep the night going afterwards.
It was a monday night and extremely quiet, hence an enjoyable noise level but as our waitress said, mondays are totally random: can be packed, can be quiet.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were very impressed!
What a find. All thanks to other Open Table reviews. We were staying in the Union Square area and this was just 1.5 blocks from our hotel on Powell Street. Our waiter was very engaging (in a good and helpful way) and tried some of their rather creative cocktails from the bar ........ each one a hit! Then the food started to arrive. We shared a risotto to start that we both agreed was probably the best we have ever had. Then salads and entrees. Not one item was a let down. We will be looking to go back on our next SF visit for sure.

Fun Dinner at the end of a long day
We picked this restaurant based on the reviews and it didn't disappoint. Ryan was our waiter and he provided great suggestions. We really enjoyed the cheese plate and halibut main course. They also have a fun and different drink menu. The bar had great jazz music so it was a bit loud but it fit the vibe of the place. We will definitely go back.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome find in Union Square
I took my hubby here for his birthday and we were seated in a private booth (didn't even know they had them). The bar was packed when we walked in at 7 and the restaurant was just starting to get busy. We were greeted by everyone in the place and they all knew it was my husband's birthday which was pretty cool. (I told the staff when making my reservation and never said a word upon arrival about it). We sat down and ordered some drinks. - They have a great cocktail and wine list. Our server Sarah was awesome. She really helped us with our decision making. I had the salmon, hubby had the steak. We tried the polenta and the butter lettuce salad. It was all AWESOME! Plus Lemon Tart for dessert... Decadent. Will definitely come back!

A Fine Friday night of Food and Win
Our group of five was able to sample much of the menu collectively, and consensus was that the entire meal from appetizers to entre's to desserts were excellent. The marinated Monterrey squid and spiced prawn appetizers, halibut entre and several of the featured desserts were among the favorites. Our server, Ryan was knowledgable, attentive and an enjoyable personality. A very enjoyable experience.

Last minute reservation recommended by concierge did not disappointment. Excellent food and very happening bar scene. Remiinded me of a speak easy. I wouldnt hesitate to go back and will recommend it to friends travellingto San Francisco.

Outstanding Dinner Date
Found Burritt Room on OpenTable and made a reservation 20 minutes before; and am very glad we did. We requested and got a private (curtained) booth, and had an excellent server and overall experience. The drinks were outstanding & creative, the food was great (Tavern Steak & Salmon) and overall just really nice place. The ambience was the kicker - what a cool hotel and restaurant, just really classy & cool.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The bar or the restaurant?
The Burrit Room has two very different crowds -- the drinkers chattering noisily around the lively bar and the diners eating in the restaurant area to the rear. If you will be among the latter, make sure to get a table quite distant from the bar.
9/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had not made dinner arrangements and checked Open Table for restaurants near our hotel. Burritt Room was suggested and had good reviews. My wife and I were given a private booth which is a nice touch. I had a steak and my wife had chicken and both were well prepared and we're quite reasonably priced. Great place for a casual dinner.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the atmosphere, food and service. Nice variety. Jazz music was wonderful too
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
My daughter and I found this restaurant and had a great experience. The food was delicious and different. The drinks we so creative. The service exceptional.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food
The restaurant is upstairs in a hotel near the stockton street tunnel so an enexpected find. The service was very good especially the wine service.
If you want to chat, ask to sit at the back away from the bar because it has live music.
The food was very good and from first to main course and dessert out party of 3 enjoyed everything they ate.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just the two of us, had reserved
Just the two of us, had reserved and were sat in one of the cubicles and every time our server came in and out he slightly pulled the drapes, so a casual date night with hubby turned into a more romantic evening. The almond milk mushroom risotto creamy and delicious. My husband loves short ribs and these were so tender, cooked beautifully you don't need a horrid steak knife (why do you anyway) you could cut it just with a fork. Service is polite is prompt.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was surprised to find this gem of a restaurant hidden away on the second floor of the Mystic Hotel in San Francisco. Much to my great surprise, the food, service, and ambiance were tops, and it was one of the best dining experiences I had in SF. The staff was attentive and the food was prepared to perfection. After the dinner, we enjoyed an after dinner drink and some nice jazz in the adjoining bar. All together, a very nice evening!
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great, funky and fun
Love this place. Ambiance is fun, food is inventive (kale Caesar starter and salmon entree for example) and the wine/cocktails are terrific. They have tables for big parties and private curtained booths for smaller ones. A funky place for the neighborhood. Definitely recommend and will go back.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was delicious, however limited number of choices. Music in the bar area very loud and difficult to converse in the dining area. Incorrect choice for a familial conversation.

Had a delightful dinner in one of the private compartments in the main room. Wonderful food and service.

We had a great meal here.
We had a great meal here. Sat in a booth towards the back of restaurant, so noise from bar was much reduced. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food, wine and cocktails. I had the salmon with Swiss chard and beets, and it was fantastic. Others at the table all enjoyed their meals, and we finished off with interesting selection of sorbets. Would definately go back.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, fun bar
Second time and we really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. My only complaint is that the wine list is WAY TOO Expensive, with only 1-2 botlles starting at $50 and the average price is above $75.

SF Swank on Stockton
Burritt Room & Tavern is a pleasant surprise from the gritty Stockton/Sutter location. It reminds more of a NYC spot than SF. The bar is spacious, dark, moody, eclectic and serves some funky cocktails (I don't drink so I can't comment). There was a 3-piece jazz trio playing the Saturday night we were there that added a great background vibe without being so loud you couldn't talk/hear. The dining room is a bit more sparse/minimalist with lots of dark wood and red candles (I think). Go for one of the curtained-off booths and make sure they don't sit you by the kitchen/servers station, it will kill your buzz. Little gem salad was delicious; salmon was okay, did not blow me away for $28. Our server, Ryan, was top notch - friendly, attentive.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Impressed and then some!!
For a tavern-based Thanksgiving family dinner this was exceptional. It took a 25 minute delay in seating us past our reservation time (it was Thanksgiving buisy) and somewhat chaotic in getting our table but it was wonderfully down-hill from there. The service, friendly and conversant waiters, and especially the food (4 course meal) was impressive - delicious and marvelous presentations. I would recommend to anyone. The eclectic jazz bar trio was a perfect acoustic backdrop. Well done Burritt!!!
