Taken immediately to our reserved table...took a little while for a server to stop by our table so we were thinking this wasn’t going to be a good experience...but once they did the rest of the evening was surprising delightful. Very limited menu but our choices of hamburger and calamari were excellent! Drinks were good—(but I wish they had blue cheese olives for my martini) Michael was our friendly host/server and he’s the one who noticed we hadn’t been served. He took very good care of us the rest of the evening and made our experience a positive. I would definitely go back!
Bring cash to tip the live jazz ensemble (they were swinging hard) which plays from a high ceiling stage (good acoustics), very surreal, and poetic, perfect for North Beach; City Lights book store (browse & buy a book before or after dinner) within two blocks walking distance. Check out the beers on tap, only two, but there will be something good. Cocktails were expertly made. Sit back, eat (small menu, but very tasty; the fried calamari and beet & goat cheese salad were spot on, instant favorites, excited to taste other items). Drink, enjoy SF like the Beats would, taking it all in, not in a hurry, not on smart phones, instead bop to the jazz. Tip the waitstaff well. Cheers!
The waitress told us all tables were reserved and our only option was to sit at the bar. I reserved a table on Open table, came back, and was seated by the manager. The waitress was disgruntled and quite rude the whole evening. Sit your customers where they feel most comfortable and welcome them into your establishment, especially when you have EMPTY TABLES.
The service at Comstock was great and cocktails fantastic!
Comstock is my favorite bar in SF. Their cocktails are spirit-heavy, always balanced, and the location is very adult. I want these guys to be around for the next 20 years, doing it just how they do it.
The venue has great ambiance, however due to its size it is very crowded. Our reserved table was literally right next to the double open doors, which in winter is a bit chilly. Oysters, ribs, and fries were delicious. The burger bun was soggy, and the flavor was “blah”. Beers on tap are great! Vodka martini and Irish coffee were great, especially if you enjoy a strong drink. We initially went for the live Jazz music which was enjoyable, but the small space minimized the experience. The wait staff and service were excellent!! Overall a good experience, just not what we were hoping for.
Yummy small plates and adventurous cocktails
The cabernet wasn't great. Go there for the Gin
Outstanding service & I don’t ever say that. Great drinks. Well done, Comstock.
Been here before and had a GREAT time. However this evening they were understaff and it showed.
A place to get a reservation and get gussied up for. Too loud to feel awkward, and wonderful ambiance.
We really enjoyed our Friday Free Lunch. It was a delicious butternut squash salad with arugula, bacon, marscapone and candied pecans. Cassidy was our server and she was very professional and kind.
Awesome staff. Very accommodating. Great atmosphere.
Had a 6:30 reservation in the dining room and weren't seated until 7:15. They made room for us in the bar but I would call this a service blunder. Food was good and service was good following that, but they could improve upon seating logistics.
The service was great. The cocktails were fantastic. I really enjoyed the live music. However, I ordered the shishito peppers, pappardelle, and the half chicken. The pappardelle was WAY too salty, and I like a lot of salt. The half chicken was good. The shishito peppers were my favorite part of the meal.
