Bistro Aix - SF
The dinner was delicious. Our server was knowledgeable as well as fun. Overall, a delightful experience.
Service is particularly outstanding - particularly if you're not interested in being treated like royalty, but just like a decent human being! Servers seem to enjoy working there.
Love this spot
Whether you want a quiet spot in their back atrium decorated of a lit up olive tree or more buzz at the bar or front of the restaurant, lovely food, service team is great!
Some context, we did have a 9pm reservation.
Our group of 8 sat down and the waitress came back 3 times ( yes 3 times ) after taking our order to tell us the items/dishes that were no longer available on the menu after we had ordered them.
Not a great start, after that, 6 of us got our main course and the other 2 came after we were all almost finished.
What the chef had to say is that it is a small kitchen so the food cannot come all at the same time. No excuse either from him or effort to try to make up for it.
I do not recommend this restaurant for a large party or a special occasion. Otherwise the food is good and better to seat at the bar.
Really good food, ordered a variety of small plates all delicious. Service was attentive and good humored. Would absolutely go back.
They don’t take Amex.
In this day and age, That is unacceptable. How embarrassing (for both of us!)
A fantastic classic gourmet experience at a very reasonable price point - absolutely unique in an area full of hollow “design” restaurants and places where most pay with other people’s money
Food was pretty good. I would go back and try different things to get a better idea. Our waitress was amazing!
Another fantastic experience! Excellent service and delicious food, creatively prepared.
Thank you Bistro Aix!!
Always a pleasure to here.
The food was good, especially the butternut squash soup. Our server was very good and did inquire about whether our food was to our liking.
High quality ingredients and well prepared. Interesting and diverse menu. Our server was knowledgeable and efficient. We had an excellent meal.
Get the calamari along with a spicy pasta along with one of their excellent Pinots. You will be very happy.
One of the best neighborhood bistros in SF. If you sit in the front of the house dining area, the bar (occupied mostly by other diners) chatter tends to dominate the room. That’s part of the charm, but can sometimes be annoying.
Bistro is always consistently great. They made a nice birthday desert for my 18 year old son and took care of us beautifully.
It’s a good bistro - with good quality food - really well cooked. The restaurant was out of a lot of the menu (6/7 items) by 8p on a Saturday night and that seems to be a general weakness in operations. Wait staff was nice, but a little disorganized - management a tad aggressive, but certainly concerned about customers. The music was unconventional and a little challenging - but added to the ambience which was upbeat.
Definitely will be trying again as the food was really good, but if the operational weaknesses are still there I’ll take it off the list.
Always love this place and the people who work here.
Went relatively early with my five year old and my mom while traveling. Tasty food, the place is comfortable with kids early on and later seems mostly adults when we left. Good food without being stuffy. Good experience overall.
As always, Bistro Aix was excellent in all ways. If you want a quiet place to speak, this may not be the place for you. Otherwise, you’re good to go.
Food and service was excellent, looking forward to going back
Food and service were excellent! We had the lamb and steak and both were delicious. Our server was very helpful with suggestions and didn't miss a beat with outstanding service.
Food was as consistently delicious as we have experienced each time we visit San Francisco and Bistri Aix.
Our second time at this restaurant and it’s going to be on our “regulars” list...notable since we actually live in Washington DC!! The ahi tuna dish is unbelievable. Try to get a table in the back, where there’s a tree and a skylight...very pleasant!
Perfect place for a low-key celebration.
Exceptional service from exceptional staff
Always such a fabulous meal.
Awesome experience all around. Food, service and ambiance were all excellent. Highly recommend!
Love this restaurant--great wine list, great food and excellent service.
Food was just ok. Pricy for what it was. Waiter started off excellent but towards the end of the meal he left us sitting with a dessert menu for a long time.
Always appreciate the atmosphere and laid-back convenience of the Bistro.
Recommend the back room at 6pm midweek if you are planning to have a visit, i.e. you miss the crunch. Food and service was great.
The best waitress ever! Did not get her name but she was really funny while maintaining a professional and efficient manner.
The food was very good, prices still reasonable and the back room is really comfortable and pretty.
our go-to neighborhood restaurant. always dependable. always delicious.
Casual but upscale bistro, with modern take on traditional menu (plus some added specials - the artichoke was fabulous and the Sardinian squid ink pasta was a revelation). While the bottle wine list is way over-priced, there are reasonably priced wines by the glass. Service was knowlegeable, friendly and attentive but a bit overwhelmed.
This restaurant is always consistently fabulous and the servers are so intelligent about the menu.
We really need to eat here more often. The food and service are so consistently outstanding ~ we tend to think of Bistro Aix as a “special occasion” restaurant but it is a wonderful neighborhood gem for any occasion.
We were early, so a lot of young children. Rather loud at times. Food and wine were terrific. Service outstanding. Goater to avoid the kiddies.
Bistro Aix is incredibly reliable. Always good.
Had the persimmon salad which was delicious! My brother had the butter salad which he said was tasty but would have appreciated a larger portion. We split a pizza which was good to the last bite. My entree was the sole which was delicious and my bro ordered the chicken which he loved!
