LOVE - FOOD - WINE - PASSION - LIFE - PEOPLE
Bisou translates to “Kiss” in English and illustrates the love we give to the food we cook, the wine we select, the passion that animates us everyday, the life we live and the people we host.
Situated in the heart of the Castro (at Market and Castro St.), Bisou serves traditional French cuisine in a new style and based on locally and organically grown products.
Bisou offers dinner and weekend brunch menus, but also provides late-night dinner that pairs well with a delicious cocktail or glass of wine.
In 2014 Bisou has evolved and started to grow its own produces at Napa Kitchen Garden situated in Pope Valley, Napa giving another all dimension to the guest experience and quality of food.

Authentic French Bistro. Does not have to be so noisy,but that's the way it is. The service is friendly a bit casual. Great bar service.For a French restaurant the servers lack a certain spark.
The kitchen is amazing. The Foie Gras is a main draw. The Pre Fixe of Foie Gras was a marvel.
A must restaurant to return and return.

Oh boy,
I know New Years Eve is tricky to find a fun, happy meal in a celebratory mood, and we didn’t have that at all.
We had a rez. And waited over an hour to be seated. The staff seemed dazed and confused, and completely random. We just laughed that it was so bad it was funny.
Food was ok, but poorly presented. Tables looked sad and forgotten. I don’t think they know what they are doing in the front of the house, kitchen is trying to do a good job.

I can always count on Bisou for a great meal, whether it's their burger and fries to any dish with foie gras. The escargots were a nice surprise, well seasoned and tender.

We made a reservation and once we got there there was no table. Too noisy. Service wasn’t good and the place is a bit too small for the number of people. The only thing good was the food. Also expensive. And they were not serving normal menu desert.

I like the food but it was way too overpriced for Christmas Eve, they squeeze in too many people upstairs and it is too hot and you end up sweating the entire meal. We usually go with one or two other couples. This was my third or fourth time there, but due to the overpriced menu, we won’t be back. We could have gotten just as good of a meal at Mystique, in the Castro, for half the price.
