    The service was superb! The food itself wasn't my favorite, but I would go back because everyone was so nice :)

    For some reason Yelp! lists this as a great place for vegetarians. It is not. If you ask they can make a mushroom pasta, but it is not on the menu.

    Dark, secluded, jazzy. Speakeasy vibe and great food at this SF classic. Take your visitors and parents here.

    Classic cocktails served by an old-school professional staff. Steak tartare was great, with a dash of sriracha. Pork chop was juicy and flavorful. Great place.

    A very delightful, SF ambiance. This restaurant has amazing food. You can't go wrong with any of the choices. I definitely recommend the Brandt Beef Short Ribs and the Warm Chocolate Bread Pudding.

    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).

    Both the lamb chop, and the cucumber salad were delicious. We had an excellent German Riesling and the atmosphere was classic old school.

    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!

    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

    Tucked away in a random Financial District alley, Bix is a restaurant like no other in SF. Classic cocktails flow at the bar and the dining room is alive and popping every night. [Eater 38 Member]

    A 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.

    A mainstay on my personal "martini trail". Love the classic SF cocktail atmosphere. Love the potato and caviar puffs.

    Beautiful old school, sophisticated atmosphere. You feel like wearing your pearls and ordering a martini. The deviled eggs are phenomenal.

    Deviled eggs were ridiculous delicious! Had the chicken and hash and it was creative, delicious and a fun dish!

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

    Located on a romantic alley in San Francisco's charming Jackson Sq., this spot is perfect for any occasion. Be sure to take in the live, nightly jazz!

    This place has AMAZING food, but if you don't have time time to enjoy dinner here, try and grab a seat at the bar, order one of their famous cocktails and their Bananas Foster. HEAVEN!!

    Has an old school jazz club vibe. Fish dishes are great, esp. the whole roasted fish if it's on the menu.

    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.

    This supper club evokes the ambience of Cunard ships from the '30s and '40s with classic drinks, a massive spirits selection and live jazz every night.

    Great 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.

    Great staff (except luke warm hostess), great cocktails, good atmosphere, live music. Small portions and way over priced average food. Go to Wayfare instead.

    Tucked down a quiet alley, Bix stands alone. Consistently on the Chronicle’s Top 100 Restaurant list, nothing in San Francisco means old glamour like this.
