Criminal Involved Restaurant !

The absolutely worst restaurant I've ever had in San Francisco ! And criminal involved !!!! 1. As I didn't bring my id, the waiter refused to take the master card.That's fine,so we paid by cash 30 dollars, but when I checked my account after I went back to hotel, my master card got over 86 dollars charge by this restaurant !!! This is criminal to use my card. I just can't believe this happened !!! 2.The service is really bad. One staff working there, ask for one more water, he said yes, then doing nothing. We actually spent 27 dollars, he said he will get the change for us, then he ran to welcome new customers without coming back at all. 3. The food is too oily and really hard to eat at all. 4. Over priced on the food, a glass of milk charged 3.95 dollars, and a glass of ice tea, which is terrible (just ice+cold water+ a little bit tea maybe) , charged around 3 dollars. Anybody who see this review, please don't go to this restaurant forever !

Romantic, great food

i have been a regualar at Bia's now for the last 3 years.
it is my favourite places to eat on the haight.
The have excellent food, i love the persian dishes, kofta, yogurt chicken and of course the stuffed pepper and eggplant.

you can come in and chill out from the hustle of haight street, have a glass of wine and spend a nice evening there with friends.
the staff on every occasion I have been there are very accomadating and sweet.
i would highly recommend it.
food is really good here!

Unbelievably bad...how is this place in business?

While so much of Haight St. is overpriced and aimed at tourists, there can be no greater a quandry than how this place still exists. I picked it as a central location for Sunday brunch with friends and I didn't want to wait an hour at Zazi. Mistake! There was one waiter in the whole place (not that there were that many people, but still). He was sloooooooowwwww as molasses, the food and coffee was minimal and cold and wilting. I was just so disappointed and embarrassed for picking it. Don't even bother, with so much goodness up the street in Cole Valley, Bia's is a waste of time and money.

Beware Bad Food and Belligerent Waitress/Owner

This was by far the worst experience in a restaurant I've ever had-- the waitress yelled at me and actually kicked me out for asking to see the check!
After halfheartedly picking at a wilting salad drowned in mediocre dressing, and drinking a flat soda, I sat at a rather grimy corner table reading a book. After clearing away my plate, the waitress, who claimed to be the owner, rudely told me that I owed her 14.25. I handed her the money, and asked her politely if I could please see the bill. She then yelled at me that I should leave and never come back to her restaurant. That shouldn't be a problem.

best food on the haight

this place has excellent food, i have eaten at lots of places on haight and this by far has the best food.
pastas are excellent, risotto cakes, kebabs chocolate souflee all excellent.
it is a mediterean style menu but cant go wrong ordering anything from this. the also have some excellent wines.
i have been going to Bia's for 2 years now, il ive in the neighbourhood, its a family run business which is nice to see in these times. staff are sweet, owners are very accomadating and athmosphare is superb.
i have the most relaxing time when ieat there, i like the fact that its never too crazy busy except on sunday brunches but you have the garden to keep you happy, they have the only outdoor seating on the haight.
i highly recommend it!!!!!!!!

be wary

expensive, slow, unattentive. Do NOT go here with a group of 6 or more. They take your automatic tip (18%) for granted, and then don't earn it--talk about mediocre service (and we were the only ones there). Portions are small. Food is decent. Sangria is too sweet and syrupy. We chose to leave ""only"" 15% instead of 18% (and all cash, too boot), because the service was lousy, and the waitress demanded the full amount as a legal right. I guess she didn't feel the need to hold up her end of the 18% contract. Lousy and obnoxious!

best lam

This place is really romantic and old and adorable looking. Food is all organic. I always have the lamb there which is the best lamb ever. It is on Haight sreet which is a full crazy people who are always ready to jump at you. One time I was there, there was this man who came in to use their bathroom whithout being a customer. The server told him that the bathroom was for customers only and that they risk loosing their insurance if they let non-customers use their bathroom. Aparantly they had had people going in and never coming out and you can guess the rest. The man walked off swearing. I guess he had to go so badly that he forgot his manners. But I am glad that this place tries to keep this kind of people out.
