Food was great, as usual! And a good value. Still our favorite in this neighborhood. Service was a bit whacked, but it was later on a Saturday night, on St. Paddy’s day at that, so maybe it had just been a long evening for the crew...
I've been coming to Bistro Aix for years and I have never had a bad meal. The food delivers as does the service. Special shoutout to Alfred who has waited on me and whoever I was with several times lately. He is always professional, friendly and attentive.
Great neighborhood place!
This was our second time to Bistro Aix and it did not disappoint. It hits all the right notes in terms of atmosphere and service. The food is creative and super tasty but not too expensive. And the wait staff is excellent - they don't hover, but they always appear when needed. Excellent for couples as well as a special get-together with friends. You won't be sorry!
We went to Bistro Aix for my birthday last week. I have an overwhelming amount of great things to say about this restaurant as I have been a couple of times before and had a great experience both times before. The food is delicious! I got the halibut and others in the group got the pork chop, chicken breast and another halibut. The food was fabulous! We split two salads and got the broccolini as an appetizer. Looking forward to our next meal there!
Amazing food!! Very nice back room with a lighted tree in the middle giving the room a cozy and pleasant atmosphere. It is also quieter back there and we prefer it that way. When we left, the front was full and people appeared to be a bit crammed in - it was also pretty noisy. Yet another reason for choosing the back room. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.
You can't go wrong - this place hits all the right notes. As near perfection as it gets.
I stay a few days in San Francisco frequently on business. The city is increasingly expensive and impersonal. As a visitor, it is hard to find any sense of community and local culture. Cow Hollow in the Marina District is an exception. There you can find small hotels with free parking, small businesses that remember your name, and a few restaurants with dependably good food and personable staff who care about what they serve. More importantly, very few restaurants seem to care about their staff, so seeing the same greeting and wait staff for 3 years and running suggests that his place is an exception. Based on these criteria, Bistro Aix is at the top of my list. Alone or with friends, they deliver an excellent dining experience.
Hard to imagine a nicer dinner experience. Excellent server, very very good food. Comfortable and pleasing atmosphere. We will return for sure.
Consistently good food and service. And they have a good, interesting and reasonably priced wine list!
We came here for Valentines Day dinner and it didn't disappoint. We got seated immediately and the service was great. The server was knowledgeable on the menu and wine list. He even provided a wine taste before we ordered. The place was pretty crowded but the noise level was not too bad. The waygu steak and charred pork chop were outstanding and the portions were pretty hearty. Prices were moderate and overall the bill was reasonable for what we got. This was one of the better meals that I've had lately.
I’ve been to Bistro close to a dozen times. It’s my go to for an impressive night out specifically in the front room. I did request the corner front table next to the window, but the person who seated us was preparing to take us somewhere else. Even though the table I requested was open. Not sure why. Did he not read my reservation request or not care?
The host felt a little rushed with us, although she was polite.
Food was as usual delicious. We had the mushroom risotto and the ahi.
Still on my list but moving down a slight notch.
I've been here a handful of times, on dates, with family, with kids, with friends. Every time it's been top-notch. And the tarte tatin RULES. :)
Probably my favorite restaurant in the City. Consistently good and solid staff.
Great service... our waiter put up with a lot of distracted people who were in midst of decompressing from 2-day off-site. The crab with chanterelle and angel hair was super tasty, as was the tarte tatin.
We love Bistro Aix. Took out of town guests for this dinner and they really praised thei meal. The food was delicious and it has a cozy ambiance for a cold night. The menu is creative and offers something for everyone. Keep up the great work!
A regular dinner spot when I'm in San Francisco, Bistro Aix is a dependable place for good food, good service, and neighborhood ambiance. The fare changes with the seasons, but they don't make a big deal claiming locavore cred. The seafood is much better than average for SF (already good), the meat is from local sources, and the salads are awesome. I'm still trying to figure out how they do this with just 75 seats and a bar.
Great meal! Really interesting wine list. Wonderful service.
Very good diner
Fabulous food and service, lovely space. Consistently one of the best restaurants in SF, quietly under the radar.
Best restaurant in the hood
Excellent dinner! Staff is very attentive. Each course was outstanding. Fresh ingredients, beautiful presentation and quite satisfying. As a whole the dinner flowed with nice pace and each part complemented the others.
I highly recommend Bistro Aix for both casual and special occasions.
It was my friend birthday celebration. We were all happy with the food we got, atmosphere of the bistro, good service.
Want to thank all bistro staff, especially the chef and the waiter!
Great food with a warm and inviting atmosphere.
We came to Bistro Aix for a holiday dinner with coworkers. They sat us out in the back covered patio area which was perfect because we had plenty of space for a party of 12 and it was quieter-so a great place for conversation. They have made the patio very comfortable and warm. Food was excellent, extensive wine list and service attentive but not overbearing. Would recommend to anyone!
I have eaten here many times and always enjoy my meal, the service and the ambiance.
Dinner was amazing as usual. I’ve been going here for years, and the food is always fantastic. This is one of my favorite restaurants!
Our go-to for great wine and fabulous food! The service can’t be beat either.
Friendly staff with great service. Excellent food choices.
A pleasant restaurant to go to with friends for good food at a reasonable price. The dining room in the back is pleasant if you want a place for conversation while the front has a pleasant bar scene. Overall, a neighborhood 'go to place'.
Best restaurant in SF
Not sure about noise level as we were there mid week and late. Really good French food. Perfect halibut and steak. Frites were like in France. Really nice sauces. Service was attentive without being too much. Prices were very reasonable. It felt like a little neighborhood restaurant.
We very much enjoyed it.
The best in the marina district
This is our favorite go-to neighborhood restaurant for genuinely good French and Italian Food. The changing menu is appealing and appetizing. The cooking is very good, creative and always dependable.
We have introduced this restaurant to many friends and family members.
Music was awful. They had hard rock blaring. Other than that, we love this place for the food and neighborhood feel.
If at all possible ... they just keep getting better.
Service be is always spot on. Wine selection has something exquisite for everyone. And on this most recent visit we had the Chicken meatballs appetizer. Unanimous outburst of "these may be the BEST meatballs I have ever had!"
Way to go! Have been going for years and have NEVER been less than VERY happy to have chosen Bistro Aix!!!
After an hiatus of 8 years, a very happy return for my wife and me. All the changes to the back room were a pleasant surprise, as they took place after our last visit. A friendly, polished and amiable dinner. Great evening.
Very good food as always, excellent wine at a reasonable price , and one of the nicest staff in town
An incredible let down. From a Michelin Bib Gourmand and well reviewed on Zagat, we expected more. Food was well presented but had no flavor. No seasoning, no spice.
Service seemed focused on Regulars and not us as newcomers. Fantastic service could not have made up for the flavorless food.
I cannot imagine dining here again.
Neighborhood treasure! Food is great and service is attentibe but not at all intrusive. Been back many times.
Friends were visiting from Montreal - a good restaurant city. The seating was quick and comfortable. The ambiance lent itself to chatting without losing our voices. Our waiter was a very long time employee - we have been customers for 15+ years. Bistro Aix just gets better every year. He advised on the wine and th specials - terrific. The restaurant has an extensive Mediterranean wine selection. Our friends thought the whole experience, especially the food, was excellent. It is the best restaurant in our neighborhood and we have quite a few good ones.
Wonderful as always! Great food and wine. Waiter was super friendly and helpful.
