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.

Ate mid week with friends - attentive service and lovely food. Didn't feel particularly French but that did not bother me. Very close to the Castro for a pre or post meal drink. Would recommend.

A bistro type setting in the Castro area of San Francisco...our dishes were creatively presented with tons of flavour . The escargot with a bone marrow presentation was unique with the very best escargot dish we have ever tasted . The sea bass was another hit...fresh and so attractive . The service was friendly and non-pretentious . Bravo !

I had a small bowl french onion soup, a salad and one fancy cocktail. All delicious. $42 without the tip. The place wasn't bad; but it wasn't great. For the price, I wished I had eaten somewhere else.
