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.

We had great service, amazing food and the music was perfect and not too loud. The steak tartare was prepared tableside and was the best I can remember ever having.

Felt rushed at our table, server asked us if we are going to get up soon after we ordered another round of drinks after dinner and dessert. Thought that was rude.

this is my third time...not the best, food selection was bland. Table for 4 was VERY small, if that is a way to discourage lingering wrong approach!!!

Nice atmosphere. Nice live jazz. Not too loud. Good service. Food not so good. So, sit at the bar, have a drink, talk and listen to the music. Don't eat.

The food we had was delicious. Our waitress was very personable and welcoming. We had multiple cocktails before dinner which we were not a fan of any of them. Aside from the drinks, we had an amazing time.

I would recommend Bix. The service and ambience were excellent. The restaurant called to confirm the reservation which was appreciated and when we arrived, the hostess was very pleasant. I especially appreciated that they offered to hold and put my jacket away and seated us promptly. I thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance and the decor as it felt as if we were transplanted back to the twenties.

Each of our meals were prepared nicely and seasoned perfectly. The only downside was there was no vegetarian option for an entree so I had to order 2 vegetable sides which were still nice. For the lack of a veggie entree option and that they were out of creme brûlée I scored the food category 4 stars (otherwise it would have been 5).

Overall the evening was fine, and our waitperson was attentive and skillful. Great old fashionds for cocktails. Petrale Sole and Sea Bass main courses were both good, but the fish was put on the wrong plates-I ended up with sea bass and haricots verts and Linda ended up with Petrale Sole with fennel shrimp and basil. We didn't notice it until the waiter had left, and chose not to mention it, but did transfer the haricots verts to the other plate. Dessert was bananas foster and was outstanding. Sancerre by the glass. We may try upstairs next time, as our table was nice but the overall noise level was high-we have hearing handicaps.

We'll be back. John Stedman.

Ambiance and Dining Experience was overall really good, but the water guy was hovering almost non-stop to the point that it was uncomfortable.
