Tagliatelle on the prefix menu was excellent. So with the Chestnut mousse with the hazelnut topping. Wasn’t crazy about the cauliflower soup, nothing special. Was not offered bread, I think that cost extra. Wonderful hosts and servers.

I have been going this place for years. I did not know that I can make a dinner reservation thru OpenTable until few weeks ago. This place --2nd floor is very small but very romantic. If you want to bring someone special, this place would be a perfect place.

Out of my expectations. Very small, no social distance, very loud. The men bathroom dirty. The services low than average.
Very good food, small menu.

Lovely little French restaurant with really friendly French people (for those who have been to Paris, this is not really expected ;)
Will definitely come back.

Two excellent dinners - I had the broccoli soup, then duck breast and Mont Blanc. My wife had the salad, Porcini pasta and pear. All were beautifully done. I recommend this modestly priced, though small restaurant.

It was really good! I loved the ambiance and the service here. It was wonderful that they did a seasonal prix fixe menu. The wine options are extensive. We tasted cauliflower soup, duck breast and a lovely chestnut montblanc. Just amazing!

Loved that we weren't rushed and this was just a lovely evening. The restaurant is cute and chic!

Loved Owner Julie's sparkling energy, great menu suggestions, & loving enthusiasm for showing us a great time for our Christmas date night in San Francisco's Union Square. It was a magical evening, with the atmosphere alive with a full occupancy of foodies loving their experience! The whole experience was that we were so well cared for & honored for being part of the Owner's "art of French Bistro dining" (the Head chef is the other Owner.) We will be returning to see what other yummy surprises are waiting for us, as they change the menu eery two weeks, getting in season, fresh foods. Thank you Bouche for a great evening!

We were seated on sidewalk. Not much of an ambiance. Thanksgiving meal was a bit salty and unremarkable.
Very expensive!

They use 'elevator' music and it was quite annoying and extremely loud. Finally, upon request, the volume was lowered. The soup was delicious but the salad was something I could have made at home. The turkey was DRY. I hate dry turkey. And the pecan pie was even drier. The cake was full of pecans, barely edible. All this for $250+ ? ! Big disappointment.

I went for thanksgiving dinner alone. Prefix and wine pairing. Bourgonue chardonnay, pauillac melrot, and pays d'oc muscat. Its fantastic to have french taste turkey with nicely dry french wine. Worth to try. Atmosphere, location, service, all nice. Thank you.

A wildly uneven Thanksgiving meal at Bouche. The pumpkin soup and cornbread were excellent. The salad was a pile of green leaves--no dressing whatsoever. The turkey was over-salted, alarmingly. The dessert was a bunch of walnuts loosely held together. The service was fine--very pleasant servers.

This was not a professional meal.

Service was outstanding! I brought along a Morel and was half expecting the chef to say he couldn’t cook it. The chef did a great job sautéing it in butter and the flavor and texture were wonderful. I look forward to my next event here.

Bouche (which I realized is aptly on BUSH /bo͝oSH/ st.) is a wonderful teleportation to an authentic French bistro. Everything from the building, to the French Maître-d and servers, to the inspired, rich and top quality food and wine transports you to another time and place where your day-to-day worries and cares dissolve away.
