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.

Great venue and vibe

Excellent spot! There was live music the night I was there (a Friday). I had the cheesy tots to start and they were just as fabulous as they sound. The server recommended the pork chop and it was fantastic.

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.

NYE 2017 was a blast and all due to this great place! Enjoyed dinner with two friends and rung in the New Years at the bar. Will be coming back - thank you Burritt Room + Tavern!

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.

Our anniversary tradition. Always a pleasure.
The new menu is a lot shorter. But the pork chop, Brussels sprouts, and beer salad were fantastic.

My husband and I went for the Christmas Eve set menu. The food was so good, the ambience was festive and felt very San Francisco. The waitstaff was attentive. We will go again next year if we stay in town. Thank you!

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.
