My friend and I ate here this past week. We shared the potato pillows, BIX chicken bites, and the sword fish. Nice tasting food a bit on the pricey side.

Service is very good and the piano in the background was lovely. Food was good but didn’t match the service and environment.

This is a great spot for dinner! I was there for a business dinner but could definitely see why many see this as a romantic vibe, reminiscent of a supper club. Nice piano music, low lights - you may need your phone light when reading...More

Bix was recommended to us by friends who live in San Francisco as being one of their favorite places and it certainly did not disappoint. This is definitely not touristy and is rather like a step back in time when supper clubs were popular. The...More

A somewhat of a hidden gem, longstanding lovely bar, perfectly made martinis and wonderful food. Grab a booth up top, and enjoy the jazz downstairs......

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.

It's the kind of place where anything goes. Lots of 'well dressed' people and 'smart but casual'. It's got a fantastic friendly atmosphere which would be great to celebrate a special occasion. Hope you enjoy it.

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.
