Bix is hidden off Gold Street and looks a bit like a speak easy when you first walk in. The room is nice and very romantic with a grand piano playing in the background. We were seated promptly and service started out great. We ordered drinks, appetizers and later entrees. Drinks came quickly and were great. We shared two of... More

The food was ok but nothing special. I had the tuna (very good), prawn linguini (average) and the chocolate bread pudding (terrible) The decor was nice and the staff attentive but at this price I would have expected far better food - I would have said that it was no better than your average mid-priced family restaurant. I wouldn't go... More

We arrived for a dinner reservation for 12. The restaurant has very dim lighting and initially when we stepped in off the street I could not see the flooring as we were escorted to the table - just hoped it didn't have a step down/up where I would trip. Once seated, it was very tight. We were also informed that... More

You may not come across this gem if you don't know it exist. This has been my third time here. The previous times, I went for dinner with a friend. Dinner was good on both occasions. This time, my sister and I went for a cocktail for the atmosphere.

My husband & I dined @ Bix on a Sunday evening. I'm disabled & use a mobility scooter. The staff were very helpful in guiding me for an easy route to a comfortable seat. The 1930's speakeasy atmosphere is glorious. Unfortunately, I also have a food allergy. But, they were kindly accommodating. I enjoyed the Dry Aged New York Strip... More

Bix creates an fun dining experience - great food, cocktails and atmosphere. The menu is seasonal and fresh. We had a large party of 8 with everyone ordering a variety of dishes. All were perfectly prepared and appropriate to the season, e.g. pork chop, halibut. The cocktail menu is classic and presented well. We really enjoy the music. It's great... More

Friends took us here for dinner while we were visiting SF. The atmosphere here - the building itself, even - is amazing and feels romantic and relaxing. Our cocktails were delicious and strong. I had the lobster spaghetti, which was delicious if a little light on the portion size. Everyone else seemed really happy with their choices. The noise level... More

This is the ultimate date or business eatery in the district. To start the appetizers were great , try lobster roll savory will be your new dinner word. Wonderfully fresh oysters just to start . Lobster spaghetti was divine or so said my date . The blackened cod was everything you look for in that dish. And to top it... 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.
