BIX is a true SF restaurant. If you are new to the City its a bit hard to find but tucked in an alley in the Jaskson Square neighborhood is the unassuming entrance of BIX. The restaurant has live jazz nightly and the food is out of this world. This is THE place for an initimate dinner with a great group of friend or family. Thanks for the great time!

Extremely poor service, terrible attitudes, non-welcoming environment, and tier-3 wait staff - with as many great restaurants as there are in the city (next time go to Boulevard, Jardiniere, Aqua...or any other), Bix should fall off of anyone's list as a restaurant option. The staff at Bix is just flat out rude... From the unpleasant and unaccomodating host/hostesses, to waiters with major attitudes purely focused on how much and how fast you order so as to maximize their tip potential. I would highly recommend that anyone considering this restaurant, very much reconsider - you will be incredibly disapointed.

My husband and I just had dinner here the other night, and the restaurant and the atmosphere did not disappoint! We made reservations on Open Table. We arrived 10 minutes early, had one drink at the bar as we waited for our table we were then whisked away to our table (upstairs!) This place reminds me of a 30's-40's supper club, very romantic. A little loud, but what restaurant in San Francisco isn't?! I had the Risotto with Lobster which was delicious! My husband had steak (typical right?!) Anyway, this place has it all! Attentive wait staff, great food! and a romantic atmposphere. They also have valet parking(which felt like we were in a movie, because of this restaurants location in an alley, Gold alley!) Well this place is gold! My husband and I will be back!

Probably the worst service we ever had in the Bay area. The waitress was extremely cold and unfriendly.
Seemed more motivated to assist a table of 8 than ours. Our cocktail was wisked off the table before it was empty, bread was never replenished, had to ask for the wine list after the first drink was removed and she never came to check if the entree was ok. The food was mediocre for the price with flavor combinations that didn't quite work for us (like sweet corn with fish). The table arrangement, music and room was nice.

This is a great resturent. I've been here a few times and it's exceptional in ambiance and style. I always leave satisfied with my meals. It's a great place to show off the beauty and charm of this city and the excellent food it is know for. I think it's great for groups and out of town guests.

I went to Bix last Sunday night with a party of 5. Bix has a lot of style- it's tucked away in an alley and gorgeous once you walk inside- it has a 1920's elegance to it. We were seated immediately and the server came and took our drink orders promptly. We ordered appetizers- the potato pillows with caviar were tasty, the tuna an steak tartares were average, and the crab rolls were boring. I didn't get to try the mini lamb burgers since the harissa was made with almonds (I'm allergic to nuts) but was told they were also average. I will say that our server was amazing- the second he heard I was allergic to nuts, he scoured the recipes to ensure that I knew what I could and couldn't eat. Our entrees consisted of the kobe beef, the short ribs, the crab spaghetti, and the lamb. The kobe eaters were unimpressed stating that they had had better. The BF thought the lamb was boring- it had been cooked with no seasoning and he was expected to use the scant balsamic vinegar to bring out the lamb's flavor. The crab spaghetti was interesting but uninspired. While the short ribs were tasty- they were similar to the short ribs I could have gotten at a Claim Jumper franchise and I was annoyed that the squash that was mentioned on the menu was replaced with carrots. As far as dessert was concerned, we had the bananas foster which was decent but not anything special. The last mediocrity was the drink quality- the BF had the Manhattan and said it was ""okay."" All in all, Bix is not ridiculously expensive and the service was outstanding but this LA girl wouldn't waste a night out in SF there again.

Seriously, and I am in no way exagerating, I had the best meal of my life at Bix about a month ago. Unbelievable selection of food and wine where the wait staff will make great recos on both. I had the Lamb with eggplant and a few bottles of Red Zin. I have been to MANY good restaurants, however, none hold a candle to Bix. Go and enjoy.
