I love this place! It's good food done well. The Chef is a riot too! Typical French fun and dry humor.

Since the place is tiny, I'd recommend coming early or making a reservation.

I found Bisou by accident when the last stop on the "F" line tram was a couple of blocks short of the normal end of the line. What a nice accident!!

I had an excellent dinner, well prepared, creatively presented, great service. The menu date makes it appear that the menu changes regularly. Finished my meal with a great desert in a very nice atmosphere.

This is a place worth going back to.

Great food, fab drinks, friendly staff - what more could you ask for in terms of Sunday brunch! Really great place, definitely book though!!

A group of us went to Sunday brunch. Cute atmosphere. Charming waiter, a tease with a French accent. Disco music playing fairly loudly.
The food was a disappointment...croque monsieur was more like cheese toast with very little ham, eggs benedict was pretty but lacked any punch, and a "spicy omelette" was not spicy. The mimosas were served from a pitcher and were a bit watery...not enough orange juice and no bubbles.

We dined here on two occasions during the week we had in SF. All of our meals were excellent. The scallops and beef bourguignon were exceptional.
Definitely have a look at the desert menu.
The owner/chef greets everyone 'warmly' as they enter the restaurant which makes you feel like part of his family.
If it's too loud or crowded for you downstairs, ask to sit upstairs.
