A word from Dirty Habit
Edgy, bar-centric concept from former Fifth Floor culinary and bar team features outdoor patio, rare spirits list and an innovative cocktail & wine list.
Helmed by the Fifth Floor’s Chef David Bazirgan and Bar Manager Brian Means, the new bar-centric concept plays host to a vivid social scene and creative craft cocktail menu with an emphasis on rare brown spirits. In a prime location perched five floors above the streets of the developing high-tech start-up epicenter in SOMA, Dirty Habit serves as an intimate hideaway for locals seeking inventive offerings and a sociable dining atmosphere, both inside the restaurant and on the spacious, heated outdoor patio.

    The chef creates remarkable dishes. The flavors were magnificent. It is good to see that the restaurant has returned to its glory. I will defintely dine there again. I was somewhat dissapointed with the portions of the appetizers however. I do not expect heaping portions but would expect a portion that integrates well with dinner conversation and multiple wine selections. Please feel free to have the chef contact me if further explanation is required.

    Our benchmark 10 out of 10 is the French Laundry and we would rate the Fifth Floor about a 6 out of 10. The dishes were good but we did not have any dishes that provided the reaction of "wow"; for us at least one "wow" dish would be required to gain above 6. We had the seared foi gras, the cold foi gras, the lamb dish, the duck dish, chocolat cake, and cheese course; all were good not none were really great. The chairs were a bit low in the back and not really that comfortable.

    Dined on 6/19/2008
    the recent remodel, which is attractive enough overall, discarded the carpeting in favor of hardwood floors, and has had the effect of losing the lovely, intimate, "clubby" feel of the original restaurant that made dining there such a special occasion. it is now moderately noisy, though the tables are still generously spaced apart, and the lighting beautiful; the food is still great (new chef), as is the service, but the atmosphere subtly detracts from rather than enhances the experience, which is a shame, and, ultimately, a disappointment.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 6/16/2008
    Small portions, high wine prices. The food was generally excellent although we all thought it interesting that those dishes with the greatest "buildup" like the fois gras were relatively unimpressive compared with the rest of the menu. Too inflexible about the tasting menu. Unlike many 5 star places throughout the US, there was a bit too much inconsistency. When dishes or components didn't click, or were merely ordinary, they stood out against the backdrop of the many super-duper dishes or components. The service was probably the best we've experienced in years. I would hire every waiter, busboy and hostess to work in my business -but not the wine dude (was the sommelier off on our night?) . Finally, the morsels of smoked duck - o'm'god!

    First, the service was extraordinary. The staff was very knowledgable and attentive, and they were also very friendly and accomodating -- not stuffy or arrogant as one sometimes finds in expensive restaurants. Excellent service is something you expect but don't always get at an expensive restaurant. Fifth Floor delivered. The food was extraordinary as well. We ordered rib-eye steak for two -- I do not recall the exact name of the dish -- that had a wonderful tableside plating. I cannot comment on the desserts since we opted for a cheese course that left us too full to sample the offerings of the pastry chef. Amuse and appertizers were memorable as well. Overall, very expensive, but great for a splurge. We'll be back.

    The food was great, but the atmosphere was very loud. The service was a bit sketchy, felt ignored and the waiters had a bit of an attitude. Sommlier Emily Wines seemed very down to earth and nice, but didn't really spend alot of time explaining, just said she would pick the wines for us-she picked great wines and they were paired perfectly, but some attention and discussion (for a minute or two) would have been nice.

    Fifth Floor possesses something that is rarely found in this city - truly outstanding food without an over-inflated ego. Each dish was surprisingly memorable and showed the chef's skill with seafood, meat and starch alike. The flavors were easily the most impressive part of the meal and each sauce and seasoning seemed to enhance the natural flavors of the food without overpowering it. Case in point was the ethereal Entrecote, which deftly combined a well crusted steak, cut for two with a rich and tangy sauce that made one's mouth nearly pucker. Overall, dining at Fifth Floor was a wonderful experience and I will surely be back again.

    Since being redecorated the space is less romantic. The bar area is very large and the music from the bar intrudes into the dining room. It has lots of glass with lights behind them that make you feel that you are in a bar. The service was very good and not intrusive. The St. Jacques (day boat scallops) were very thinly cut. The pigeon with truffles was not identifiable as pigeon unless you knew it from the menu. The valet parking is validated, but when you are taken to the basement to pick up your car there is an additional $12 surcharge. We were there for less than two hours so this is a revenue enhancement for the hotel. We enjoyed the meal but probably would not go back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 4/16/2008
    Entrees were not what we ordered (lamb vs. pork shoulder), but the food so fussy we honestly didn't realize it until we started eating. They have a bread sommelier, which just means there are a lot of people hovering over you. Fusty, stuck in older "new food trends" (foamed dishes, lots of little amuse boce...). Conversation is constantly interrupted by servers (well intentioned, just doing their jobs), all the red wines were chilled because they'd just come out of the fridge....overall, I feel like I spent $200 on a very bad dinner for two, no dessert, just a few glasses of wine. Never again. Doesn't match informal character of Palomar.

    Dined on 4/15/2008
    This was my third visit to the Fifth Floor. While the food was excellent this time I really preferred the way that the Chef's tasting menu was prepared on the two previous visits. I liked telling my waiter my likes and dislikes and having the Chef prepare what he/she thought would best suit my tastes. This to me seemed more custom tailored as opposed to just picking items from a standardized menu. During our visit on April 15th it was obvious that the food had been driven by the wine which was good but I prefer the wine to be driven by the food. The wait staff was excellent and very knowledgable. I will continue my search for that custom tailored Chef's menu.

    This was a great dinner. The food was exceptional, certainly among the best we have ever had. The menu was interesting and everything was perfectly prepared and seasoned. There was a balance about the food – a gastronomic intelligence which appeared in every dish bringing both a sense of deliciousness and delight to everything we tasted. Three days earlier, I had dined at “Restaurant Daniel” (Daniel Boulud’s flagship in New York City). While I enjoyed it, I found the food at Fifth Floor to be superior. Not sure why except to say that the Fifth Floor seemed to be more about making things taste good than about making them complex.

The only disappointment we had was the valet parking after dinner. It's closed already and we had to go downstairs to get our car by ourselves yet still paid the parking fee and tips for the valet person. We appreciate if the hotel could extend their valet services until the restaurant closes - we understand the valet might be operated separately from the restaurant, but for guests it's still a part of our special night out.

    As a loyal Fifth Floor patron of several years, my wife and I have seen The Fifth Floor evolve through 3 chefs and 2 re-models. Despite all that has changed two things remain the same, five-star food and five-star service. The sommilier, Emily Winer, is a rare breed and adds to what always amounts to an extraordinary dining experience. A word of caution, the bill is not for the faint of heart. You can easily rack up $200 tab per person, especially with some of the remarkable wines that you have to choose from. That said, there are some occasions, when it is best not to look at the prices. This is one of those occasions.
