  • bobbi2 reviewBix was good to me. All I can say is that my potential business deal became a big deal to me thanks to Bix. I really believe that it is the perfect place to entertain work people and take family when they come to town. Great San Francisco food from bread to dessert!!!

  • sfx1 reviewVisited SFO for the first time this Jan. Was lucky enough to hear about BIX. Very sexy atmosphere. Great artwork, flattering lighting, good acoustics. Try to get a booth upstairs. Female Jazz vocalist was easy listening. Dinner was absolutely amazing. Heard they have a fabulous new chef and he lived up to his reputation. Bartenders are very professional and friendly. Good looking crowd of all ages. Compared to NYC the meal was great value. Remember it comes with excellent live entertainment and every course we had was outstanding. We will definately go again!

  • fsmith reviewGreat restaurant! Very much like a 'New York supper club,' yet distinctively San Francisco. Good people watching.

  • alexkoshellward reviewAfter trying to change a drink order at the bar, my friends' already delivered orders were poured out with a `I guess you aren't ordering another round` comment from the bartender.His comment had more truth than he knew: I'll never ever have another round at Bix.

  • mrbtxtc reviewIf you feel like waiting...and waiting...and waiting, then Bix is the restuarant for you.For a reservation at 9:30 (this was the earliest after 3 weeks of trying for a Sat night) we expected to be seated before 10pm, especially since the table we were given had been free since before our reservation. UGH! The food is good, but not worth the cost - honestly for a restaurant that serves $700 bottles of wine, you'd expect better. Plus, what's with the additional 35 minute wait between courses?Aside from the hostess' bodily enhancements, this restaurant really isn't worth a second glance.

  • Tina S.Fun times watching Alex Vargas sing live

    55555 by Tina S.

  • Kevin JDo not get their truffle burger. Everything on that plate is the too salty and unedible. Lobster spaghetti was good but not amazing. Poor inattentive service. Overall a disappointing restaurant.

  • Paul de HalléThe steak tartare is to die for. Amazing ambience and food.

    55555 by Paul de Hallé

  • Dave N.Pork chop and bone marrow were both delicious.

    55555 by Dave N.

  • Brendan CurranGreat atmosphere and an opulence that's rare for SF. However, you're definitely paying for that, and not the fare, which is good but not equal to the cost.

    55555 by Brendan Curran

  • Leah J.Spaghetti lobster is divine. Lives up to the reviews left here.

    55555 by Leah J.

  • Sam M.Eat at the bar! Ask for Bradley. He has great recommendations

    55555 by Sam M.

  • Tracey B.Very cool, darkly lit, old timey San Francisco speakeasy. Upscale and spendy! Everything was impeccable from the cocktails to the service.

    55555 by Tracey B.

  • Andy M.Have the truffle burger (delicious and filling). Don't have the pork (possibly the smallest piece of meat I've ever seen served in this country).

  • Jorge J.always go for the manhattan best in the city

    55555 by Jorge J.

  • Tim P.Great, old-style steakhouse tucked away in a random alley. Get the deviled eggs to start.

    55555 by Tim P.

  • Tablet HotelsA swanky speakeasy-style supperclub in a hidden alley downtown, Bix is private, exclusive, atmospheric, and with live jazz most nights, it’s almost too precious to be true.

  • Pacific Union InternationalNice mix of chic and old San Francisco. Great martinis!

    55555 by Pacific Union International

  • Kelly P.Get a Sidecar, bone marrow and truffle fries for starters. Chicken hash is unusual so you might want to try that. Fish portions are generous for this type of restaurant. Bread is sourdough!

    55555 by Kelly P.

  • Tony O.Bix Burger is the bomb!

    55555 by Tony O.

  • Larry H.Bone marrow = delish! Deviled eggs, butternut salad, lobster spaghetti, duck and truffle cheeseburger also fit into this same category. A delectable experience with amazing staff. <3

  • SFGate M.You might linger over snacks like harissa-spiked lamb sliders to fortify yourself. But even a quick pit stop for one of Bix's stiff, proper drinks is a true San Francisco treat.
