Dining room at Comstock Saloon, San Francisco, CA

Comstock Saloon Restaurant Review

: Taking its aesthetic cues from its Barbary Coast roots, the Comstock Saloon whisks diners away to an entirely different era as soon as they step through the door. A pukka walla fan dating back to 1916 hangs above the sweeping 20-foot mahogany bar stocked with vintage glassware. High-backed wooden booths line the wall of the main dining room, overhung by a balcony lounge outfitted with a piano where jazz trios perform most nights. A second, cozy dining room features patterned wallpaper, velvet settees and a wood-burning stove. Ronnie New's Victorian-California menu features Scotch eggs, beer-brined pork chops, rabbit currywurst, and oysters and peel-and-eat shrimp from the raw bar. Though the wine list is hearty, the real stars of the bar are the cocktails by mixologist Jonny Raglin (Absinthe). A three-hour daily happy hour is happy indeed. Free Lunch Friday --- order two alcoholic drinks and get lunch for free --- is a popular weekly tradition.
