A busy, bustling place for a wonderful brunch. Not a quiet place, but their unique menu items makes this restaurant well worth visiting -- everything from salads to Croque Monsieur. Service was great -- even for our table of nine. I highly recommend Bisou!

We were in San Francisco visiting and stopped by here just prior to leaving. This was the best meal we had and were never disappointed with anything. The food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. We look forward to coming back.

Visited a friend who lives in the City. He made the reservations. Small place, crowded and noisy. Food was ok, but really nothing exceptional within our group of 5. I had the chorizo benedict. The egg was poached well, but there was not enough chorizo to really taste the flavors and the hollandaise was simply bland. I understand that at... More

I went to bisou on a Sunday morning to have brunch. There were many super yummy and different options for breakfast. I ordered the crab cake eggs Benedict but was very tempted by the option of the day: lobster egg Benedict. Food was very yum, service was great, location is convenient. It's a great spot when you are visiting the... More

Went to Bisou Christmas Eve 2014 with 5 family members. While resetting the table next to us, a wine glass was broken and glass shattered on our table and on the floor. Rather than cleaning up the glass before seating the diners at the next table, the diners had to step over the glass to be seated. We pushed all... More

Staff are very attentive and friendly and the food is great. French onion soup is to die for as well as the filet mignon. Names of the desserts are fun and are also delicious. Our family dine here on each trip to San Francisco.

This place is trying too hard to be fancy and posh but unfortunately it is not even close. The service is very disorganized and inexperienced. I visited with a couple of friends, one of them ordered a steak well done, got it rare (or the other way around). The other got the starter wrong, eventually they brought the right starter... More

Have a visiting friend who we met back in the South and haven't seen each other for many years. A French restaurant close to Castro brightens my eyes. We arrive before 7pm. The place has not warmed up yet and we were led to a second floor table for two. I do notice that people work there speak French to... More

Staying in San Francisco for a few nights, this was pretty near the apartment. Went in on a Thursday without a booking and were offered a table. Service was good. Food was good. The steak being the standout. Would definitely go back.
