We went here on a Friday night, and this place was jumping. Plenty of action at the bar, and no empty tables - reservations definitely recommended. I believe we sat at table 37, which was upstairs/center offering a 66% view of the three piece band, full view of the bar and a great view of the place overall. The music... More

Wait staff was very attentive. We sat upstairs and had a great view of the bar. Around 7:15 the piano player and bass player... More

The entrance to the Bix is like a back alley speakeasy straight out of the prohibition era- A very neat place- We didn't have reservations and the place was packed so we had appetizers and cocktails at the fabulous bar which we really enjoyed- Great art deco interior- We will be back!

Excellent, friendly service and a delightful menu. Bar has an endless array of options and servers will happily customize the menu based on a wide variety of substitutions. Great people watching; bar is friendly and welcoming. Can't wait to return.

Friends and my husband treated me to quite a lovely experience last night, dinner at Bix. The service was great ( a little hiccup at first as we had requested and received confirmation for an upstairs table which wasn't "available" at first but Jesus straightened it all out and we had a cat bird's seat for the art and ambiance.)...

Overall a good dining experience. Loved the decor and drinks menu. The tomato cart was lovely, as was the duck entree.

I Have taken my wife on numerous occasions and have always had a first rate dinner here. Bix is located on Gold street in the Historical Landmarked Gold Exchange building. The atmosphere is wonderful, Jazz music a delight, my only tiny complaint is the expense of a night out will leave a large hole in your pocket.

This was my second time to Bix and it was another great experience. The ambiance is top notch along with the service. I think most would agree it's a little over priced, but not enough to make you not go back. I got the steak dish that was on special and was not impressed with it. Especially at the price.... More

Hi there, We pulled up to this restaurant in a taxi and thought... Where is the restaurant? It is down an alley and looks like nothing on the outside... Enter to a beautiful open multi story restaurant with piano player and grand staircase. The food was great and really reasonably priced. We ordered 2 mains, 2 side dishes and 1... More
