An exceptionally stylish supper club, civilized speakeasy, a sophisticated saloon. Each of these "personae" is housed in a soaring two-story interior distinguished by a gently curving mahogany bar, fluted columns with ornate capitals, stunning original art, plush banquettes, cozy booths, starched linens, glittering glasses, and polished flatware.
Overall, the ambiance is pure 1930's and 1940's - tasteful art moderne reminiscent of the glory days of Cunard and French Line ships. Fashionable and glamorous are the hallmarks. Trendy is simply not a part of the BIX culture.
The clientele at BIX ranges from San Francisco movers-and-shakers to "savvy travelers" - owner Doug Biederbeck's term for the many diners in the know from out of town who patronize his establishment.
All of them step from the featureless alley into another world - a world of superb cookery and libations, of sparkling service, of stylish nostalgia, of polished live jazz. That world is BIX.

    Classic. Awesome. Bummed the Lobster Spaghetti wasn't on the menu. "Suffered" through the American Wagyu Petite Tender... incredible meal. Great service as always.

    I LOVE Bix. I got together with a friend from high school who lives in the North Bay. I was in San Francisco for business, so I suggested Bix. She hadn't been there but a friend of hers said it was fabulous. I lived in San Francisco from 1975 - 1980 and Bix was there then! The restaurant looks EXACTLY the same! Beautiful, furnishings, art, great musicians. The food never fails to disappoint. We just had the potato pillows, trout rillets and the crab rolls. All were OUTSTANDING!! the bartenders and our servier did an excellent job. Thanks for providing a consistent great experience.

    Nice people but this place is trying to be more high end than it actually is. Also if you want to listen to jazz find another spot, it’s a zoo with screaming animals at every table. Food is mediocre at best and expensive. Again, nice people and very courteous staff but overall it’s not what you pay for.

    Delicious food, especially the Pear Panna Cotta! Beautiful decor and great atmosphere. I dine here every time I visit SF. It always impresses.

    Bix is an enduring classic. Timeless without feeling dated, it’s a remarkable room and vibe in the heart of San Francisco. The perfect spot for a drink, a light meal at the bar or special occasion.

    The update to the menu is terrific, the music was excellent as usual, and the vibe was exactly what you want from Bix.

    Loved the venue. However, it was very hard to hear or enjoy the live jazz music upstairs with the restaurant noise.
