We were at Bix with two other couples, one couple from Copenhagen and the other couple from Rome. We wanted to show our friends a little slice of old SF but not with old food. We had a late Sunday evening reservation and had a wonderful time. The staff was great and did not make us feel rushed. The food... More

Bix has the dim and might be smoke filled atmosphere, were it not the wrong decade, where you might expect to see Humphrey Bogart smoking at the bar and Bacall in a slinky, satiny gown picking up a mike by the stage. There's dining downstairs to the left of the bar, as well as up a wide, ornate staircase. Bartenders... More

My husband and I wanted to have a romantic meal while in SF and thought that Bix would be the restaurant for such a meal. The atmosphere and music were great. The food was and the service were excellent. But it was so noisy that you could hardly hear the music (and were we seated two tables away from the... More

Overcrowded with yuppies from the financial district. So loud we could not hear the music. Table not ready at reservation time. We were celebrating boyfriend's birthday so they put a a candle on his dessert and that was it. No singing, no free dessert, nothing. Food was OK but nothing special. Wait staff was efficient but not very personable (I... More

A real find around a little side street. Brilliant truffle cheese burger ever, fresh thick and juicy. Very dark and interesting interior of restaurant, great for a quick drink at bar and listen to jazz pianist.

Loved the atmosphere in this place, you will feel like you are in the roaring 20s at a speak easy. Menu was OK, food was OK, service was OK, wine was Outstanding. Music and Atmosphere made the hum drum food worth it. Dessert was good but not anything I would have to have again. Oh and no toilet paper in... More

We went here for a business meal. We knew that the restaurant might be a bit noisy so asked for a quiet table upstairs, and were assured it would be quiet. Unfortunately, we arrived early enough so that the bar activity on the first floor was at full swing, and it was loud enough that one had to talk loudly... More

We were in SF for a few days and a friend had recommended this spot, so we gave it a shot. Wow. We are so happy we came. The ambiance is wonderful. Our waiter, Chris, was great and was very knowledgable on the menu. We split an incredible heirloom tomato and fresh mozzarella salad that they made table side. We... More

What a great upscale restaurant off a quaint alley. Food, service and music was excellent. The ambiance and old jazz club lighting was perfect!
