Been on my list of places to check out. Booked a table for Father’s Day brunch. The food was amazing and the service, if you can believe it, was even better. Won’t forget this experience, and will definitely be back again. Thank you!!

fathers day brunch - not too many options. Salmon was ok. Bread basket - huge - but could have been more creative. Sat outside in a covered structure - it was nice - though on the sidewalk. Service was great.

Delicious food, wonderful, leisurely dinner is just what I needed that night. I love my neighborhood restaurants and so happy to drop by this one now and again. Try their weekend brunch as well, pretty scrumptious!!

Dinner was absolutely amazing. We sat outside but the heaters kept us warm. The server (forget his name, he said he was from Chicago) was INCREDIBLE. He truly sold every dish and he was so attentive to every table.

Unfortunately, i am disappointed by the food. The dinner started on a good note with salad but main course was just roasted veggies, it should have starch. The bread pudding was dry and how can they call a blob of meringue a dessert.

We had an amazing anniversary dinner at Bouche on a Saturday night. Our server was excellent, had perfect recommendations for wine, food, etc. and the kitchen took great care of me (a vegan). I can’t recommend Bouche enough.

The server was so personable, which was what truly made this dinner memorable - he really made the entire meal experience feel high-end but approachable. Would definitely continue to visit, especially when regular menu is back. The current prix fixe menu is limited in options.

Small dining room with properly spaced tables. Very pleasant service. Good wine suggestions. Appetizers, vegetables and desserts were great. Meat and fish somewhat over cooked, but flavors were excellent. I hope to go again, soon, as the pres fixe menu changes weekly.

Convenient location, near Union Square. Quaint atmosphere. Service was good, but pace to place order, eat and finish felt rushed. There is a 90 min dining window and it felt that they'd like you to finish service well before that window expired. That said, the food was excellent. Nice flavors & everything was cooked perfectly. Seasoning a bit under, but a little salt & pepper to taste was all that was needed to make this more than satisfactory. Pricing is reasonable. Will definitely come back and recommend to others.

We wanted a smaller, well-reviewed place to eat while we were on vacation in San Francisco. Our tiger stops were tourist favorites. Bouche had a beautiful setting and wonderful food. The manager or Owner was so delightful to talk to. And the food was exceptional and authentic!!

What a quaint, cozy, and romantic little French restaurant! So glad hubby and I booked this place for our first night in San Francisco. Staff and the owner made us feel welcome and special. The ambiance gives one a feel of being right there in France! The wine and food were incredible! We had the fixed prixe menu and also the surprise dish which were a lot of fun! We could see the chef preparing everything right from where we sat. Everyone were so warm and down to earth. The food itself were delicious and every bite was gone!! We could’ve licked the plates it was so good! We would have gone again and again had we not had other itineraries set in place. This place is a must go to!!!

Great brunch out in the parklet. Friendly people and satisfying food. We felt so well taken care of — nd were so well -ed! The oeuf meurette — poached eggs with delicious sauce — is our standing order. Also tried the coffee panna cotta for dessert, and it did not disappoint.

The paired St. Emilion was the high point. The tasty bee plates we chose were good but would have been better if they were warmer.

The decor was basic and the plastic seats were cheap. For the price, I’d hope for furniture, not lawn seats.

My husband and I had a great experience this past weekend at Bouche. The Prix Fixe menu was delicious and the service was wonderful - everything was on point. The ambiance and noise rating for this review are skewed due to COVID (outdoor dining).

Excellent authentic French brunch. From start to finish, I highly recommend it. I had the omelette which was prepared how I like it (not all dried out). I was fortunate that the dessert for the evening’s menu was available so I had an excellent salted caramel cake to end my meal.

Outstanding service, very interesting “surprise” menu item was great. The menu & waitress would not say what the mystery dish was....but it was the best thing we ordered. Dinner for 2 was $190 before tip (no alcohol ordered), but was much more than I would ever want to pay for what we ordered.

This was my second time there, first was much (much) less expensive, around 1 year ago. But hey, who am I, amiright?

The experience was fine but I did not realize we were on a set menu. That should be highlighted especially if they are taking a cash deposit. The price is reasonable, but given the low level of options, you’re kind of stuck to pick one item or the other.
