“[Comstock is] the kind of old-school bar that feels like it existed before Prohibition was ever a thought and where a beer or a simple gin and tonic feels like a cop-out. The bartenders here will make anything you like, but off the menu, we like the Martinez, a sort of precursor to the modern martini made with gin and sweet vermouth,” via The Infatuation SF, September 2019.
“When it comes to restaurants that pay homage to a different era, there’s a fine line between undesirably kitschy and genuinely authentic. Comstock, the North Beach watering hole that’s been serving up libations to thirsty patrons since 1907, nails it,” via Forbes, August 2019.
“By evening it’s a buzzing cocktail bar housed in a historic North Beach structure, but on the weekends the beloved Comstock Saloon serves up a decadent brunch that’s one of the hottest tickets in town,” via TripSavvy, August 2019.
“Comstock is mainly a bar, but it’s a bar with great food. Start with some white cheddar chexx, skip the rainbow unicorn tartare that mostly exists for pictures, and order some lo mein cacio e pepe or the burger. Get a daiquiri or a manhattan, too,” via Infatuation SF, August 2019.
“At the intersection of North Beach, Chinatown, and the Financial District, drinkers will find Comstock Saloon, a modern San Francisco take on a Barbary Coast saloon. Featuring big post-work happy hour crowds and nightly live-music, Comstock is a worthy stop for drinkers and diners alike,” via SFist, June 2019.
