About Burritt Room & Tavern - Mystic Hotel

Burritt Room + Tavern, tucked into Mystic Hotel by Charlie Palmer, is heavily influenced by film noir. Named for 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.

This was possibly one of the best meals and service we have had in SF. Charlie the waiter was great and the food was so good. We are still talking about it. The menu selections were tasty and the filet with the crab was top notch. The flavor profile was savory and complimentary while each bite stood on its own. Bravo! Only downside was music and bar noise pick up after 8:30 p.m. and the music was a little too "mall organ" style so took away from the ambiance and experience.

I came here for my husbands birthday. We are from Los Angeles, Ca, visiting San Francisico for the weekend. This restaurant was a perfect choice for us. The Burritt room and tavern inside the Mystic hotel offered delicious dinning, great drinks, an acceptable wine list, and great service. I will definitely come again.

Although the food and service were excellent our glasses of sparkling water kept getting refilled with regular tap water. It was annoying. They had to refill our glasses with another bottle of sparkling water. This happened 3 times! I know what you're thinking..why didn't you stop them?! They were too fast with that refill pitcher! They should have left the bottle of sparkling water, even if it was empty, as a sign to the other wait staff not to refill glasses with tap water.

All four of us enjoyed our meals and wine selections. We also enjoyed the great jazz combo playing in the bar. I recommend it highly and will return, but when you go watch your water glass!

While searching for a different place to go while in town on a brief business trip we came across Burritt Room & Tavern. We were pleased with the well prepared food and excellent craft cocktails.

We had to be up early the next morning so needed to make an early night of it. To our great surprize, the music started early. A fine jazz combo started playing at 7:00pm. We couldn't have wished for a better situation. Great food, well prepared creative drinks and live entertainment. And we still got in at a decent hour. While out on a work night you can't ask for much better than this.

I had heard good things about this restaurant, but had never been. So I made a reservation for Valentine's Day. The pre-fixe menu was amazingly delicious. My boyfriend and I both agree that overall, this was one of the best dinners we've ever had. The servers were very attentive, the space is gorgeous, there was even live music. There were two areas - bar and dining - and both were beautiful. We'll definitely be back. The location is convenient as well.

I love this restaurant for the cool bar and the live jazz bar. It has a cool hip vibe. The food is also very very good. I also go for the lemon risotto which was on the menu the first time I went and we flipped over it. The last two times I went it was not on the menu but the chef made it for me anyway. They should just put it on the menu -- its very good

The bar was excellent and I'd go back to visit just the bar.

The food was fine for Vegas hotel standards but not up to SF restaurant standards. I expected more from a chef with such fine credentials.

The server we had interrupted us, didn't know basic information about the hotel, surroundings, foods or wine, and generally behaved like we were there to cater to his needs. By the end of dinner his tone deaf service became comical. He did send over the 'wine manager' to assist with pairing, but that guy was woefully uninformed.

The female bussers were great. Maybe promote them, they seem to understand service.

Liked the private booths but the dining room arrangement was so crowded that we had to bump around people to get in and out even though the restaurant was half empty.

Would not recommend the restaurant to anyone I want to remain friends with.

I went to BR&T for SF Restaurant Week and I was pleasantly surprised by my experience. They offered the standard 3 course menu (appetizer, main, desert) for $40. I was impressed that they took the extra step by starting the meal with an amuse bouche and also paired the main with a complimentary cocktail. Food was good and a nice ambience!

My boyfriend and I liked the looks of their Restaurant Week menu and we'd never dined at Burritt Room so we took the opportunity to try it. We found the food to be enjoyable, it was easy to share and just the right amount to leave you satisfied. Live jazz was streaming in from the bar and the staff was attentive but not overly so, which made for a nice relaxing experience. We will try their full menu some time in the future.

Overall a fair dining experience, although the food did not win my partner or myself over. Our favorite item was the scallop, but it's really not difficult to make a well-seared scallop...
Service was great, but it felt as if they were hovering over us at times, looking for crumbs to sweep away. Dessert was horrible - that root beer float was a twist on the classic but left a sour taste in my mouth. The "cookie" and mint chip ice cream was also just as disappointing.

While I may not return for food, I most definitely will return for drinks.

We came in with no expectations. I chose this place because it was the first hotel my boyfriend and I had stayed at together in San Francisco. We went for Restaurant Week and did the set menu for $40. To start, they were out of one of the options for the first course and allowed us to order another starter from the regular menu. This was a wonderful surprise. We ordered the chicken liver mousse from the prefix and the sourdough foie gras butter pancakes from the regular menu. WOW. The pancakes were AMAZING. I could have eaten an entire stack of them. They were rich and delicious, flavorful and had a touch of maple syrup which was a nice.

The entrees were GREAT. When reading them off the menu, I didn't think too much of it, but when they arrived, we were surprised. The portions were very generous and both were delicious. The pork belly with cornmeal fried okra and the smoked scallops with the aged cheddar and broccoli were wonderful. In addition, this is probably the only prefix menu for $40 that you will get with a cocktail (from the awesome burritt bartenders). This was another plus.

Dessert was also light and refreshing. Grasshopper pie with mint ice cream, oreo crumbles and salty caramel. Then they had a housemade rootbeer float with ginger ice cream which was just wonderful.

Nothing but good things to say. Our server was also friendly and cool - we had some good conversation with him.

Will definitely be back for dinner again.

We sat in the dining area (not the bar), we got a little bit of everything and the food was great! Everyone also ordered a specialty cocktail and they were also very tasty.

Our reservation wasn't ready when we arrived and we were going to have to wait 30 mins, according to the hostess, until a table was ready -- despite a reservation. They ended up opening up a back room for us, but it was nothing compared to what being in the actual restaurant would've been like. Disappointing.

There were a number of spills of food and drink during our dinner. The waiter was very kind to comp our drinks but it seemed that other tables were having issues hanging on to their cups and plates as well.... not sure if it is the dinning ware itself to slippery hands!

Otherwise, service was great, food was okay, drinks not bad, very loud and a packed space

The restaurant is hard to find because it is on the 2nd floor of the Mystic Hotel toward the back of the floor. When you arrive at the top of the stairs you are in a narrow, dark and often crowded bar, so it is a pleasant surprise when you make your way to the restaurant which is a bit brighter and more open. If you want to feel like you are in the know bring your date or out of town friends here. The menu is very creative and the food is really delicious. They also make some fantastic cocktails and have an extensive wine list. The Burritt Room is on my favorites list for a place that makes you feel special because it's just that cool.

In the past - shortly after The Burritt opened I brought a group of friends from Central California to experience Mr. Palmer's menu, and it was exceptional. However this time the food had highs and lows: we ordered both salads (the apple and the beet), they were exceptional. For our next course we ordered the pork belly and the fire roasted cauliflower. The pork belly was wondeful, however the fire roasted cauliflower left a lot to be desired - the cauliflower arrived completely BLACK and COLD, and the cheese on the top was LESS than lukewarm - I was able to pick up the cheese as if it were a sheet of paper. For our entree we ordered the Truffle Risotto and Skirt Steak; the risotto was wonderful and decadent. The skirt steak was cooked perfectly however it was seasoned so heavily (salty) it was inedible. I explained the issue to our server - he was very gracious and asked if he could have the kitchen prepare us anything else, and removed it from our bill. We orderd the sorbet trio for dessert - very refreshing and a nice finish to our meal. The only other issue is the noise level - we sat in one of the booths at the very back of the restaurant which is a nice experience, however the music (level of volumne) of the Tavern was deafening and prcved difficult to have a conversation at our table - I cant imagine that decibel level being tolerable for any length of time in the tavern since it was difficult to endure in the restaurant. I'm not sure if they had the music in the restaurant on as well?

Great ambiance and bar menu. Started with drinks and a corn dog off the bar menu which was the best corn dog I ever had! Music was great too! Then.... We went to dinner. My husband had a skirt steak that was just ok. I had goat cheese raviolis. The pasta was hot yet the beets in the sauce were cold as well as the weird green stuff that they put on top. Wish I just ordered the corn dog!!

This is a very nice dining room, with a vibrant bar at the entrance to the dining area. The food was very good and the restaurant has a lot of potential, but just needs to tighten up on some things. We ordered appetizers and a salad to share. The waiter said he would have the salad come out after the appetizers, kind of like a palette cleanser. But the kitchen sent out the salad first and almost immediately after, the appetizers came out. We got the beet salad, but the beets were too salty (from the way the beets were prepared ahead of time). We ordered the matzo ball soup, but it was not your traditional matzo ball soup. It was kind of deconstructed with very little broth. It wasn't what we were expecting. The wait service was very attentive and personable. Other than some of the miscues, we enjoyed our dinner there.

Sat at the bar ~2 hours waiting for a friend, and had some truly great Old Fashioned and Dark and Stormy variations. They have stacks of delicious bitters and a well-informed bartender, Josh.

Love the location: it's upstairs in a ... hotel? Sort of out of the way on Stockton right outside the tunnel.

Service in the restaurant area was okay -- they consistently forgot drinks and the checks at the end, so just be sure to grab the waiter's attention when you see him.

Burritt Room and Tavern was so unique that I felt like I was in another country. The location is off the beaten path. It is a gem hidden in The Mystic Hotel which is interesting and unique in itself. The restaurant has "draped" booths and regular tables. Requesting a draped booth makes your dining experience more private. The service was great. The menu was a little more limited than I like. And on top of that they were out of some of the items on the menu, so not a lot of choices for main meals. I wish the beer selection had a little more to offer also. There was a little jazz bar that is a part of but separate from the eating area. We left about 9:00 and the bar was hopping. Very hip looking crowd. You have to try it when in SF.

We were visiting San Francisco for the Thanksgiving weekend. This restaurant was offering Thanksgiving dinner and was really close to our hotel.
Our table was not ready when we arrived so we waited at the bar, which had really nice vibe and decor. The cocktail and wine menu was good. Wine by the glass list was not too extensive, but ok.
Once at our table (it took about 20min) we were greeted by our waiter, who was really attentive. The Thanksgiving menu had two choices, a more traditional one - turkey, and the other "nothing to do with Thanksgiving" option - short ribs. We went for the more traditional one: Mushroom soup, turkey and pumpkin pie. Everything was really good, although the turkey was a little bit dry for my taste. (I understand that it is difficult to cook turkey and most of the times it ends up being dry).
Overall, we enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at this restaurant.

Thanksgiving dinner and I was still hungry. No vegetarian option unless you asked. And this is SF? Actually the vegetarian option was Stripped Bass and it was the best part of the entire 3 course dinner, but it was a secret unless you asked for it. Too much money for too little food. Mediocre

Great wait staff. Small but well thought out menu. Food very well prepared and presented.
The bar area is seperated from the dining room more conceptually than in reality so it is a very good place for dinner with a date before 7. After 7 the energy (some might say noise) goes up exponentially with the live band in the bar.

Great cocktails and cool atmosphere but very disappointed in the food. The ravioli, highly recommended by the otherwise great waiter, was very tough...like it had been reheated for days. The New York steak was tough and sinewy. Will be back for drinks but passing on the food next time.

great service great bar expensive but your in union square so expect it. we would go more often, cuz we love the bar first them going right into the dinning area we have also taken a stay cation and stayed at the hotel. BUT wow there are still vegetarians in SF. there use to be menus that would celebrate being a veggie with at least one entree let alone maybe two that a veggie could eat but NONE at all on the menu is kinda behind the time? NO? and you always every time we come have to "make" something for the vegetarians. Really do no vegetarians come to your place? and it's always risotto (which is delicious) but rich and come on we would love to not have to eat cheese pasta (which was a little under cooked BTW) or cheese risotto every super nice restaurant we go to while everyone else at dinner gets these awesome creative dishes. Punishing the vegetarian was big in the early 90's here. I was loving when the city menus served both for about 15 years it was nice. now all meat, some you would never want to eat and no vegetables in general I mean almost none came with the meals. so maybe a more diverse menu and this place would be a perfect gem that even a local could frequent. other wise we can only go a couple times a year or the menu gets tired.

Hotel restaurants used to get a bad rap, but Burritt Room & Tavern goes out of its way to dissuade you of any prejudices you may have in that regard. Start in the bar for one of their signature cocktails ()I recommend the Mark Twain), or order something classic (a Negroni is never the wrong choice) and then head into the informal dining room for steak frites, a glazed pork chop or their famous drunken chicken. For starters, get a plank of meats and cheese and then end up with the cookie plate (but be warned, these are plate-sized cookies and the chocolate milk is more like a chocolate shake). And if desert isn't your thing, grab another cocktail before you head out into the cold night.
