Total mess up – I had made reservations 2 days before. Still, we had to wait almost an hour to get seated. Messed up on our order. All they had to say was "sorry, we're busy tonight".
Total Waste – I took my wife here a week ago in search of a romantic evening. Instead we found a noisy frat crowd grown old. A wasted dining experience.
Fantastic for special occassions – The atmosphere, food, and waitstaff all added up for a wonderful dining experience. I would highly recommend this to someone looking for a place to celebrate a special occassion.
Better as takeout – Called WELL in advance rsvp for an early 6PM celebration of wife's birthday. Not one mention or indication of the special occasion. Instead of a romantic evening upstairs we sat in the midst of a loud bar crowd with a business deal on one side and a bridal shower on the other. Food was attractively prepared and very tasty, however the experience would have been better if we ordered to go and ate in the car! Please remove the Bix from the romantic restaurant column
jim'll Bix it – Recently we went to Bix for the first time, it was louder than I had expected and therefore not as romantic as one is lead to beleive. The service was excellent. The first course was excellent, but the main course a little dissappointing, the quality of the meat wasn't top notch. The portions are not small as people have said, if anyone has dined in a standard European restaurant, they will know what to expect, unlike the obese Americans who eat 6000 calories a day and expect a plate full of dead cow everytime they have a steak. A full meal for two did cost in the region of $250.
Great atmospere, great food. – Went to Bix for the first time two weeks ago, and loved it! Excellent food and the timing of the server and attitude couldn't have been better. Strongly encourage all to stay late for the music and drinks made with care.
perfect other than hostess – This is the guaranteed home run for business or pleasure. If the host staff werent so consistently awful it would be a true gem. The servers are awesome and every dish I have ever ordered has been solid. The surroundings are unparralelled. Someday they will get host staff that catches up with the rest of the place. Very SF for your out of towners. Great Ports and the bartenders are legit, if you ask for a dirty..you get one!
Raise a glass – An elegant, old-school place to get a perfect sidecar or martini. Love the big murals and all the dark polished wood.
Edgy and elegant – Despite the edgy nature of the host Bix continues to offer a brief walk into the past with its 1930's atmosphere,terrific music and wonderful food.Everytime I visit I wait for Bogart and Hepburn to descend the stairs onto the scene.Bix is a terrific fun place to spend an evening dining,listening,drinking and watching !
The Perfect Standard – Bix is a the perfect standard for those seeking good service, wonderful atmospere, active bar scene and consistently good food. The long time bartenders care about serving you and keep the energy going. Evening jazz brings you back to years long past while the food, whether at the bar on a table is always superb. The one draw back comes from the less then perfect service you may find in the lower dining area. It is a place I frequent with locals and always bring out of town guests to for drinks and dinner.
