About Mystic Room & Tavern

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.

I discovered this hidden gem searching through Open Table for a location suitable for a party of 6. The ambiance was lovely, they comfortably sat us all together at a long table in the center of the restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised by a live jazz band playing in the bar that you initially walk through to get to the restaurant area. The food was fantastic and the service very attentive. Along the wall sat tables in what resembled private booths, perfect for a date night with that special someone. I would highly recommend this location to friends and family looking to enjoy the night out.

This is a bit difficult as it was NYE and the prix fixe menu was pretty limited on choices (as a prix fixe menu is). There were four courses and a little appetizer and all but the main course were absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, the steak was a bit overcooked a way too tough for the standard set by the rest of the meal. Staff was most accommodating and engaged with us about the situation, and I am confident they carried the comments to the kitchen. I have always had outrageously good meals here and I love the quirky ambience.

I wasn’t expecting the hotel to look so run down; the restaurant was old, not particularly nice in fact it was humid and had a weird odor. The waiter seemed like he was in a bad mood, they automatically added a high gratuity while the service was subpar. The food was excellent -lamb was fantastic.

Terrific, innovative food. I had a great mezcal-based spicy craft cocktail that meshed perfectly with the pork chop. Our table of four shared roasted Brussels sprouts and a beet and goat cheese salad before the entree. Generous portions and delicious food. Recommended.

Felt bad for server. He did a good job but the kitchen dropped the ball on him. Only half the people in our group of 7 got their entrees and the others had to wait for at least 20 minutes or more before seeing theirs.

It was thanksgiving dinner, the food started out awesome and each course was progressively worse and the desert was average at best. The soup and the Brussels Sprouts were awesome. The service was great. The main course was warm, not hot. They did have 20% off bottles of wine.

We came for Thanksgiving dinner which was a set menu. The decor was very cool - flim noir without being so dark that you can't see the menu. Our family of four got a nice "lightly screened-off" space which felt both private and intimate, yet we could still look into the restaurant. The menu was a fixed Thanksgiving menu so no ordering was required.

The breads were delish with elements of surprise both in the bread (scallions) and the butter (herbed and sea salted). The squash soup was delish - purred with sophistication and not seeming baby foodish. The Brussels Sprouts were to die. The entree was as good as Thanksgiving food can be if you don't naturally love turkey, stuffiing and cranberries. The mashed potatoes were perfectly creamy, chunky and tasty. The Bison stew was a nice touch, but a tad too watery and could have been omitted. Short rib would have been a more amazing touch or even some beef or pork medallions w/ more mashed potatoes and a leek confit.

The desserts were parfait to finish the meal. The service fantastic - attentive enough without hovering. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. I nice find inside a hotel that seems very different than the Tavern. Bon Appetit!

Food was decent. Waiter was terrible. Forgot my drink, disappeared for almost the entire meal without checking in, neglected to tell us our minor preparation request wasn’t honored and brought the food anyway, then completely inappropriately commented on my wife’s (good) body.

Excellent! Highly recommend. Jared, our waiter was on point with menu recommendations and drink suggestions and just all around great guy. We had the New York steak, salmon, cannelloni all incredible. For dessert the pudding type dish with meringue ...crazy good and Creme Brûlée. Really cool vibe with live music in the adjacent bar. We can't wait to go back😃

We were told of a "Speakeasy" type of restaurant near our hotel Sir Francis Drake and asked the concierge if he had any juice getting us in as we had tried for 5 days to make a reservation to no avail. He mentioned that he knew of a better one and it was only two blocks away. The Burritt Room and Tavern was just what we had in mind. We enjoyed a couple of their specialty "period" cocktails as we waited for our table. We enjoyed the squash lasagna and the chicken Airlie. Service was great and attentive all in a fun atmosphere. Definitely a hidden gem.

Loved the food, the service and the ambience. I had a reservation and was pleasantly surprised to find that our table was in a little semi private area. Almost like a private booth. That way we could still talk and hear other while enjoying the music from the main room. The cheese tots were fantastic, and so was the spinach pizza flatbread.

The live jazz music was a good addition to an already romantic ambiance.
We love this place and would definitely go back!!!

 (Naples)·Dined on October 28, 2017

This is a great little restaurant within a hotel. In the bar they had a jazz band playing which gave the place an atmosphere reminding us of an old movie. There were curtained booths in the room dating back to the 1930's when private business meetings could be conducted within. The food was very good - we had Wagyu steaks with sauce, roasted potatoes and spinach followed by a shared creme brulee. Our waiter was really good, friendly and efficient. It was busy and buzzy.

Great food. Service was terrific. Highly recommend - brought in a party of five with a reservation and had a terrific time! A nice touch - when they called to confirm our reservation, they asked if there were and food allergies in the group they should know about. The ambiance was great and everyone who came to our table was friendly, informative, knowledgeable and great! I’ll be back for sure!!

A great place for friends get-together. They have live music almost every night at the bar area. My friends and I like to enjoy a cocktail or two before or after our dinner. We would usually share a few small plates and one or two of their big plates.

During our stay in SF we wanted to hear some live jazz music during dinner and Burritt Room was on a Top Ten list of jazz places to go in SF downtown/Union Square.
Great bartender, nice young band playing modern jazz and for once normal size portions (not XXXL) in the restaurant.
Wineprices way out of line!!

Two of the entrees on the rather limited menu were not available so we opted for three apps. The beet salad was good, the wings were average, at best, and the flatbread was inedible. The crust was thick, doughy and very undercooked, so I had to return it. And unfortunately, there weren't any other items on the menu we wanted.
And although the employees were all very friendly, they weren't very efficient.
