Good food in nice atmosphere

We had a good night at this restaurant. The food was good and the service friendly, but a slight bit slow. Overall very recommendable for a dinner with friends.

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

Came here with a friends, one of which is a San Fran local, and without him I don't think we would have found it. Almost don't want to write about the place so that I can keep pretending that is my own little secret. Hidden down a little alleyway you could quite easily miss it, but you really shouldn't.

Reservations accepted one week out for 8pm on a weekday: Check. Greeting and outstanding hospitality upon arrival at the door: Check. The hosts took our coats, our names and suggested a drink at the bar while we waited. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a shrimp and crab dinner salad, an appetizer special, a steak dinner and... More

The charm of this place starts on its location: a small street, full of brick town homes. Inside, a jazz band plays live music while a elegant crowd have dinner or sip drinks at the bar. Food and service were very good but it is the atmosphere that makes the place a special one.

Really solid food and great wine list at reasonable prices however the stand out is the deco decorated building that Bix occupies. I would go back again just to experience the ambiance. It's eirth a visit if your in San francisco and looking for something a little different

Had a most disappointing meal at Bix. We had expected more, but what you get are high prices with quite mediocre food! You get one bread roll, which by US standards is odd. But that sets the tone of the evening portions are small by European standards and not very good. Most dishes needed additional seasoning. Wait staff were pleasant... 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.
