We were visiting San Francisco over the holiday and booked our New Year's Eve dinner at Bisou. It was a five course menu with several selections for each course. When we entered the restaurant we were created by the chief. We were given a table that was in a busy area and the chief came back and moved us to an end table over looking the bar area. Each course was better then the one before- the food was outstanding- just the right size and severed at a comfortable pace that allowed us to really enjoy the evening. The martini's were on the small side but other then that it was an outstanding night. When we went to leave I found the chief to thank him and tell him how much we enjoyed the meal- he thanked my by name which impressed me!

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.

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.
