My husband and I had a great night here. The fixed course meal was amazing. The options were great even for a vegetarian. The service was great-smart, fun, and readily available. The price is really good for the quality you get. We will be back.

Beautiful boutique restaurant that offers a delicious seasonal changing Pre Fixe menu accompanied by amazing staff offering a memorable and enjoyable experience.

Go with a friend, order both Pre Fixe choices and share, to ensure you experience the entire menu. FYI - they offer a mystery dish and it’s a must try for those who are brave 😉

Bouche is a "find" Don't judge by street view (tiny) as upstairs is lovely. Exceptionally friendly.

The kitchen is very happy to accommodate vegans: make a note of it in your reservation so that they can prepare for your arrival and shop for the freshest, most seasonal ingredients for your delightful prix-fixe meal. When you step in, it feels like you've been transported to a tiny alley in France. Go there for a moderately splurge-y date night. They'll take great care of you!

We enjoyed an excellent dinner at Bouche. It offers extremely enjoyable contemporary French cuisine, expertly prepared and beautifully presented. The prix fixe menu is very limited, but the items are seasonal, flavorful, and delicious. A word to the wise: The flank steak, though delicious, can have a lot of fat or "gristle," and some may find the cut to be tough. The bone marrow, available as a supplement, was well-prepared.

Unfortunately, the service was not at the same level as the food. Our server was polite but essentially forgot about us. Guests at adjacent tables, who were seated after us and who placed their orders after we did, were served their food before us. We were served our starters and bread (sold a la carte, BTW - very annoying) only after we informed one of the managers about our situation. After that, service improved, though we still felt as through we were being ignored. Our server never inquired if we would like glasses of wine with our meal. One member of our party ordered a glass of wine on arrival, the other decided to wait until he had his main course. Our server never inquired if we wanted wine with our meal.

I'm a big fan of French food and greatly enjoyed my meal, in spite of the service flaws, all of which are fixable. It's a lot easier to get to Bush St. these days than Paris. I'll definitely return to Bouche, and look forward to a better experience.

My first time at Bouche was a treat. The food is excellent, and our server was friendly, efficient and helpful in making our selections. The menu is limited and is prix fixe, but there was enough for most people to choose from.

Excellent service. Wait staff was prompt and knowledgeable. Room was very noisy. Table next to me asked me what their waiter said twice. Food (flank steak) was good but rest of meal order was unremarkable. Maybe I just picked the wrong appetizer and entrees.

Delightfully cozy restaurant. We had a lovely experience from the moment we checked in through the end of our meal. The food was wonderful, and the staff was quite attentive. Be adventurous and try the chef's surprise. I would recommend sitting inside as outdoor seating is on the street and there is a lot of traffic going past.

Haven’t been out to eat on a date in forever with my boyfriend due to quarantine hitting right after we met. Everyone was charming and lovely.

Our experience felt very special and felt very personally charming for me as I was remembering my time in France for the Women’s World Cup in 2019.

Thank for you being so warm and the best place to retreat to for an amazing experience.

Thank you,
Elyse

So, clearly, I found my neighborhood haunt and with the changing menu, I will be back.

This is my third review here so, I thought I’d share some pictures.

The Little Gem salad was crisp and delicious, the dressing was perfectly applied and flavorful.

Main course was Pork Tenderloin cooked to the proper temperature and the Dijonaise sauce, delicious.

Wine suggestion by Julie was spot on.

Enjoy !!

If you want a French, a great little find. My wife and I were reminded of places we had eaten in Belgium and France. The service was excellent and the ambiance rustic and real. Thank you for such a wonderful meal. Layers of taste and lovely French wine.

Sorry, we were too busy enjoying the food to take pics.

Bouche is on our short list for our San Francisco trips.

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.
