this place is such a world way from the hussle on haight street, its cozy, cute, food is always tasty.
i have had so many favourites dishes, pastas, desserts , stuffed eggplant.
the staff are really friendly, always up for a laugh and fun to talk to.
its super busy on weekends especially brunch, very cute back garden.
I highly recommend it!
best food on the haight! friendly and accomadating staff, great for kids.
I am a regular at Bia's, the food is always excellent, i especially love the pasta dishes, risotto cake, chicken dishes and of course deserts.
on all my trips there, the staff are very friendly and play with and are very accomadating to my daughter who is 2.
its very cozy and romantic and also such a nice relaxing environment away from the busy streets on haight.
I highly recoomend the food and athmosphere and service is equally great!
DIABOLICAL SERVICE. Rude staff.
DIABOLICAL SERVICE. I took my mother there. The service was slow, miserable and rude. After waiting at least 25 minutes to be served, I asked for some mustard, gray poupon. The waitress who I believe is related to the owners was very bitchy, had a continuous pout on her face and seemed more interested in her nails then serving anyone. She refused to bring us any mustard and then proceeded to shout at us for no apparent reason.
The bill, which arrived surprisingly fast, was hand written and confusing, we asked her to explain some charges. She got extremely bitchy, called someone from the kitchen, the manager/ owner. They conversed in another language and then proceeded to shout at us using foul language, which was offensive.
I have never been so embarrassed in public and wound never return or recommend Bia.
Apalling service. Awful service. Very slow.We waited almost an hour for the app, which tasted and looked like a hamburger with yogurt sauce. 2 couples left on either side of us, because the service was non existant. One couple was at the bar, no drink after 15 min, no apology. My water glass was empty for about 30 minutes. Most of the plants are dead. It looks adorable from the street, which is why we went. We laughed in the begining, it was so bad, but then we were just starving. the only "apology" we got, was that a big table's food had just come up... Ummm, no, not really working for me. We will never go back. We were also told that there were no tables available, so we sat at the bar, the next 2 couples that came in, got sat at open tables upstairs?!
Abysmal. Okay, I understand, it's New Year's Day. You're probably hung over. You want to hang out at the bar and drink champagne. You don't want to serve customers. That's fine. But drinking champagne is not necessarily incompatible with greeting your customers, especially when your restaurant is half-empty- at the very least you could make eye contact. Maybe after ten or fifteen minutes when you decide to visit your customers' table you could, I don't know, apologize for the wait. I regret going to Bia's, and I regret even more that we were too hung over to leave during that ten to fifteen minute wait. Ugh.
Fantastic Restaurant. I had dinner here about three weeks ago, and have been back twice since then. This place is quietly one of the better restaurants in the city. The atmposhere is lively w/o being overbearing, the service is top notch--the staff is very attentive and you can tell they know the menu front ways and side ways. I've only had wine by the glass but their selection looks very impressive. The grilled lamb sirloin is one my favorites dishes. The risotto hits the spot as well. I haven't had brunch there yet but it looks packed on Sunday, so I'm guessing it's delicious.
A casual, classy treat in the Haight!. We have been to Bia's several times, and are always impressed by the friendly, knowledgeable staff and consistently good food. The best items on the menu are the more eclectic ones -- don't be afraid to take a chance! The more "American" dishes are not amazing but still very good; we've tried maybe half the menu and have never had a bad experience. Prices are high for the Haight area, but more than reasonable considering it's San Francisco. They have a nice wine list -- if you want to just chill over a glass or bottle of wine, this is the place. The atmosphere is great -- casual but classy. I wish the back patio were open more often!
Bohemian-like restaurant is one of the few sit-down options in the Upper Haight..
Neighborhood couples and tourists are happy to take a break and chill in this eclectic hippie-fied space replete with plants, brightly painted walls and folk music. On sunny days, the back patio is a secluded spot for a glass of wine off the extensive list, and staff fires up the heat lamps in the evening. Dishes, made with organic ingredients, include grilled salmon filet with basil-pesto aioli and grilled lamb sirloin with rosemary and wild mushroom sauce.
