Coincidentally, we (a small group of 4) had a 6:00 dinner at Bix recently, when the restaurant was celebrating its 30th anniversary. The menu was interesting, and each of us ordered something different: sea scallops, lobster/spaghetti, pork chops, and salmon. Not only was the food...More

Amazing food, amazing atmosphere! Quiet, romantic, very classy! Tucked away on hidden side street that has a lot of history from the Gold Rush Days!

We had a fantastic meal at Bix. The made our night extra special as we were celebrating our Honeymoon! The crab starter is to die for, followed by the fillet mignon was superb. Plus they serve our favourite champagne (bollinger). It is a must for...More

We were 4 for dinner. Nice location and well seated next to the kitchen. Menu choices adequate but starters were spitefully minimal and overpriced . Potato pillows were minuscule and unmemorable. Waldorf salad like Faulty Towers, small enough to be fresh out of Waldorf. Deviled...More

When Bix opened, everyone flooded in - it was the hottest ticket in town. For decades, it has kept up a sterling repuation with superior bartenders who can manage a barrage of thirsty clientele.

While the restaurant’s setting was quaint...lovely jazz playing through out dinner...I wasn’t overly impressed with the menu selections. In fact, I was somewhat disappointed because I expected the menu to be the same as what I saw on Open Table when we booked our reservation...More

The restaurant was perfect! We went for an early dinner and the restaurant was pretty empty, but filled up as we were leaving. We were seated right away and the service was great! Our server was very friendly, prompt, and polite. The food was all...More

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.

No dress code, but I expect to dress classy casual. I also may dress in coat and tie. For women, smart attire is good, and not "low" casual.
