I've been going to Bix for as long as it has been open. Haven't been back for a few years until Valentine day 2015. I wasn't disappointed at all. Food and services are phenomenal as always. My well travel LA friend was very impressed.

My husband and I have been going to Bix for our Anniversary for many years now and it never disappoints. I always try to do different dishes because each is so special. This year I did the oysters and the foie gras...perfect as I do not have a huge appetite. My husband had the fried chicken appetizer and the truffle... More

Had great hopes for this place on the recommendation from a local I met on transcontinental plane trip. Had all the earmarks: not easy to fine, warm welcome form the staff; crowd at the door; jazz band playing. The menu was a bit limited but OK. All 6 of us managed to find something tempting. Food well prepared and nicely... More

Great early dinner with superb halibut, but the surroundings and the Manhattan made the evening. The sweeping staircase and 30s features were amazing.

Celebrating an event with my son. Meal was great. The son had the duck breast, moist and tender. I had the pork chop. Great meal. Only thing that could have made this Nebraska girl even happier would have been a good filet of beef on the menu. They did have a NY strip, but I'm a filet kinda gal. On... More

Bix is an incredible experience, the service was great and the food was some of the best I have ever had. I had the lobster spaghetti and also at the table was a Kobe steak. All of the food tasted fresh and delicious. The ambiance was great however it did get a little loud on occasion. The meals where very... More

This was our second visit after a three year hiatus. I love the location in an alleyway! The restaurant has an Art Deco feel and great art. Around 8:00 pm on a Saturday night, a jazz band plays, but mellow enough so you can still hold a conversation. The restaurant gives you reason to not wear your jeans! I ordered... More

For a long time this has been my "go to" restaurant recommendation for out of towners. I recently went with a person from Singapore, Australia, Dubai and London. Each and everyone of the people loved the atmosphere and most importantly the food. For 2+ hours they said they didn't feel like tourists, which was one of the goals. Three people... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
