Bix is not a walk by and drop in place. It is down a small side street, no parking (but valet), no sign evident from the corner. But when you go in it is a classy atmosphere in a delightfully designed space. The restaurant has...More

Coincidentally, we (a small group of 4) had a 6:00 dinner at Bix recently, when the restaurant was celebrating its 30th anniversary. The menu was interesting, and each of us ordered something different: sea scallops, lobster/spaghetti, pork chops, and salmon. Not only was the food...More

Amazing food, amazing atmosphere! Quiet, romantic, very classy! Tucked away on hidden side street that has a lot of history from the Gold Rush Days!

We were 4 for dinner. Nice location and well seated next to the kitchen. Menu choices adequate but starters were spitefully minimal and overpriced . Potato pillows were minuscule and unmemorable. Waldorf salad like Faulty Towers, small enough to be fresh out of Waldorf. Deviled...More

When Bix opened, everyone flooded in - it was the hottest ticket in town. For decades, it has kept up a sterling repuation with superior bartenders who can manage a barrage of thirsty clientele.

While the restaurant’s setting was quaint...lovely jazz playing through out dinner...I wasn’t overly impressed with the menu selections. In fact, I was somewhat disappointed because I expected the menu to be the same as what I saw on Open Table when we booked our reservation...More

We enjoyed Bix very much, they did everything well. Restaurant has good space, staff very professional, food good - but expensive overall. You get what you pay for!

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.
