About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Mystic Room & Tavern, tucked into Mystic Hotel, is heavily influenced by film noir. Backing onto Burritt Alley, where detective Sam Spade's partner Miles Archer was gunned down in 1941 classic hardboiled crime film The Maltese Falcon, the distinctive atmosphere appears in the handcrafted cocktails as well as the tavern’s walled-in and curtained booths that create dark corners for private conversation.

Went here on a larger group work dinner and had a great time. The drink menu is interesting and expansive, as well as the appetizers and small plates. The dinner menu left something to be desired in terms of choices, but the food was still good.

Menu is pretty limited. We each found something we liked, but there’s was only one good choice for each of us. Dining room was nice but extremely casual. Service was good, but a little bit slow.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Mystic. Had a drink at the bar, too, good bar staff. We had a very private very comfortable booth which we enjoyed but the highlight of the meal was both the service and the food. Two appetizers beat salad and the brussels sprouts excellent. We each ordered a burger which was probably too much however it did taste great the next day, As well. The The service was also a highlight we had an excellent wait staff in Cody. He was knowledgeable of the food and of the wine. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the Mystic. Loved the jazz band.

Mystic room is a great setting. But they had us sit at the bar in spite of our reservation. No waitress to be seen. Food was not very impressive. Worse yet, they now claim that we did not show up for our reservation. Frustrating experience all around.

First time, early dinner before theatre, very pleasantly surprised - great food, great service and interesting historic site. Live music on Friday night attracted bar crowd for cocktail hour (jazz). Will keep on short list for Union Square fun places!

We went to celebrate our five year anniversary. All of the staff was attentive, helpful, knowledgeable, and had a really fun attitude. The vibe is laid back, which we like, and the food was delicious. The menu is rather small but I prefer less of a selection because its tough to make a decision when everything looks good! The live music was really nice and didn't overpower the ambiance of the restaurant.

Service was excellent. Drinks were awesome. Menu is in flux with recent changes to the restaurant, but the food was good. Try the Asian style chicken wings. The Maitake sandwich on their summer menu was a very delicious, and pleasant surprise.

One of the best restaurants in San Francisco - dined here twice in the past month! Great, top-notch service. The ambiance is great and they have private booth seatings that are great for groups of 2-4! The food here is mostly good (95% I would say). Would definitely recommend!

A bit overpriced across the board from the tiny cheese plate for $16 to wine bottles with an average of $200.

The QUALITY of the food and ingredients were fine but the flavors were just OK. The kale salad was a little too salty, and the pasta was rather bland. The service was excellent, and we liked the space, but need to work on the tastefulness of the menu items.

Allow youself some time at the bar before dinner. Watson can mix any cocktail imaginable and is among the best bartenders in the city. Dining was great with live jazz band. Loved the beet salad for starters. NY Steak med rare was very good as well, just be ready for garlic butter topping. Very tasty.

We loved the service that was provided to us from the moment we walked in and till we left. The staff was excelent and made us feel really special. We went to this place for the first time for our anniversary dinner. They gave us a private little room to eat and the waiter greeted us with champagne. They took really good care of us and made our night special. The food was really good. We ordered chicken wings, margarita flatbread, and the chicken.

Extremely helpful and knowledgeable waiter. Outstanding and exotic cocktail menu, although a bit esoteric but waiter was extremely helpful to interpret. Food was delicious. Difficult to decide what to order because I almost everything on the menu sounded delicious! Live Jazz band was a nice addition to drown out the loud bar area. They were very pleasant to listen too. Service was a bit slow but tolerable. They made up for it by being incredibly accommodating and thoughtful. Hostess was very pleasant and helpful as well.

Great food and service. I have been here several times and there is always an issue, they are out of the Vodka you order, the wine you order isn't cold, they bring the wrong desert, but they always make good on an issue with a smile and a "free something". Over-all always good food and service in a great atmosphere. Strange review, but I always have a good time and go back.

Love everything about Mystic - live music, GREAT sommelier (kevin!), awesome wine list, tasty food, and best of all - the ambiance. It’s not super fancy, but is exactly what you want for a nice Friday night out with friends and has a unique vibe - not like every other SF spot. Two thumbs up!

Great Food and Drinks! My wife, cousins [spouses] and I went (9 ppl) and we enjoyed this place. The menu was good and the value was great. Handcrafted cocktails and a foodies type menu. I had the vegetarian pasta which was awesome, but boy did I want to try the wagyu burger (currently not eating meat). Would definitely return.

Super great place, recently changed named from Burritt Room to Mystic, still the same great place. Menu is creative and delicious. Great drinks at the bar too! Live music in the lounge and private tables on the other side. Very good food.

What a gem! I wasn’t too sure about this place as we walked up to the hotel (almost In the tunnel!), but the jazz band playing as we entered on the second floor set me at ease.
The ambience feels like a speakeasy with”booths” that are recessed and lit by candlelight.
The food was delicious and delivered quickly and the drinks were spot on.
I’m so glad we found this place and we will be back ;)
