One of the waiters literally cussed me out for asking to talk to the manager after portions distributed for a tip and a plate. Disappointed in professionalism and customer service. Will not return.

Was craving fish and chips and chose Bartlett Hall due to its proximity to home. It was a good choice. The fish & chips portions aren't huge but I think that's actually good, too many chips is usually bad for you. Theirs are tasty, not too thin-cut, and the tartar sauce is one of the best in SF. Good beer selection (you can see their beer tank inside the restaurant) and yummy cocktails were recommended. Will definitely return.

We had an early dinner before an event in the SF Union Square district. I was trying to find a not so touristy place, which is a bit of a challenge in this area. Bartlett Hall was a pleasant surprise with regards to ambiance and service. Very vibrant and cosmopolitan and very friendly service. The food was a bit of a dissapointment. Deep fried Chicken Po Boy and Fish Taco's both without much taste.

Food was awful and service was slow - waiter should have noticed we did not eat the food and should have asked what was wrong or offered something else.

Claimed everything was good, and nothing was, including their homemade Bloody Mary.

Overall, a disappointment.

Visiting SF for our annual Granddaughters' Trip and needed somewhere near Union Square that could accommodate the tastes of 10yr old- 73yr old. Bartlett Hall fit the bill! Eclectic menu (we were there for brunch), good drink options (except stay clear of the lemonade- it was both too tart and too sweet), and excellent service.

Passed through San Francisco and asked hotel concierge for a recommendation for a family friendly pub to watch the MLS playoffs at. I made reservations, and was not disappointed with the food or the cocktails. They had a table reserved for us with the TV already on to the station with the game. This really is an adult place, but there is limited seating for families (if bringing kids - I recommend making a reservations). The tempura cauliflower with buffalo sauce, french fries, Yerba Buena and Negroni cocktails are winners. Needless to say we stopped by two other times during our stay to watch other games.

Great beer, great service, okay food. I had two great IPAs, our waiter was great, but service did drop when he went on break. Wings were pretty good, but pricey ($12/5 wings). Iadded bacon to my burger for $2 and got just a single strip. The patty was ordered medium, but came back well done in parts. Location isn't great, I don't like that part of town too much, but if I were close by I'd go back for at least the beer, and maybe try some of the other menu items.

I was a little concerned about eating here given some of the negative reviews related to the service, but I'm glad we did.

We had a reservation and were seated promptly. The food was good. The two desserts we tried were very tasty, with the chocolate mouse being the best.

The Bartlett Hall beers I tried were excellent. I forgot the exact name, but they had a chocolate porter that was incredible. They have guest taps as well if you prefer something else.

No complaints about the service. We had two different servers helping at various times and never went without timely and friendly attention.

Lots of TVs for sports viewing, with pretty much every seat having a good view of at least one of the screens.

We were looking for something casual before a show and gave it a try. Bartlett Hall is more of a sports bar than anything. It was OK, folks were professional but screaming sports fans overpowered everything else.

Overall good. However the menu on open table was totally different from the menu at the restaurant. For example no porterhouse pork chop which is one of the reasons we chose to go there.

The reason for the poor rating is that we were misled. The menu online had items that piqued our interest, but when we arrived there, they had a totally different menu. We were very, very disappointed. For example: Yellowfin Tuna Crudo,Pork and Ricotta Meatballs, House Made Pork Sausage just to name a few were not even mentioned on the menu in the restaurant.

My question is who is responsible for the content of the menu, on the website, accessed through Open Table?

The Female front of house was particularly rude on arrival when we asked for a seat closer to some life in the bar. Waited over an hour for our main course, medium rare steak and the portion of food was tiny for $28. Overall, very disappointing and I'm confused that this place rated so highly. In all my years in USA, I've only refused to tip service twice, this was one of those times.....front of house attitude pretty much spoilt the evening for us, rest was downhill from there; we won't be returning or recommending.

Eleven of us for a football weekend. Fun and loud, but service very sketchy. Had to hunt down waiter, who was barely friendly. They think their menu is creative and cool, but end results were just OK. Off Union Square so location is good.

We were looking for something casual and low key, informal and not too expensive. This fitted the bill perfectly. Our waiter was great - friendly and attentive in the best possible way. We were all very happy with our food - what's not to like - great quality pub food, at a reasonable price and a really great Gin and tonic!

Good food and a cool space. Originally from Chicago so I'm used to high prices but these seemed a little high for sized portions served. Waitress didn't bring a drink for my wife until reminded again and never refilled water glasses. Didn't even bring the appetizer or meal from kitchen and when we were done she didn't clear the dishes. Real star of the meal were the behind the scenes people! Good work!

Went here on a Friday evening and it wasn't too busy but the people at the table next to us were pretty loud and drunk which made for a frustrating first 20 minutes. The food actually was pretty good (I had the chicken, others in my party had salads and thought they were good) the trouble came with the service - our server was pretty pushy and then forgot our in a few of the apps we ordered and in general was very slow even though there was nobody there. Hard to understand why you're going to rush us, push us for the upsell but then not actually provide good service. Would not recommend this place.

We needed a place for a quick bite to eat before an ACT performance and saw Bartlett Hall on the ACT website. You could pass by thinking it was a pub for the many tourists in the area, but it was a nice surprise. The food was straightforward--we had salads and a "small plate" of meatballs--and it was tasty, with fresh ingredients and nicely prepared. A nice selection of wines by the glass. Service was friendly and excellent, and they even gave us a 20% discount because we were going to ACT.
