I went to BIX on a recommendation. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, in a beautiful setting. Overall the service was very very good. The starter (Foie gras as the Special) was excellent. The BIX CHICKEN HASH À LA SPRING was disappointing: it lacked flavour...More

We had a business dinner at Bix and were blown away. The food was amazing and interesting, the service excellent and the whole vibe relaxed and inviting. If you are looking for an interesting menu with a fun atmosphere this is a great place.

Bix is located down a small side alley. I loved the location already! Inside it was very nicely decorated in a retro/deco style complete with a grand piano for a jazz pianist. The lighting was a little too dim though. We had cocktails & they...More

Made a reservation, turned up on time, table not ready. Waited 45 mins and table still not ready. Arrogant staff, who couldn't have cared less. Waste of time.

Bix Restaurant is today's version of the old-fashioned supper club feel. It also reminds one of the "great place on an alley" former times in San Francisco. You enter from the alley-like Gold Street into an atmosphere worthy of dressing up. The main floor has...More

We thought this was a jazz and dinner club. There was live jazz music, but it was only background music and the noisy sound-level in the room made it difficult to hear the music at all. The menu looked promising and we ordered two of...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
neighbourhood 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 neighbourhoods 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.
