    Stepping in off of Bush was like walking into a small bistro in Paris. I sat at the bar which is small but allowed me to watch the kitchen actives and still enjoy people watching of tourists on the street. The food was very good and fresh but a very small, prix fixe menu. The hostess is delightful with a ready smile and wonderful French accent. It's a bit noisy because it's so small but if you want to go to Paris for a light meal, it's a great choice

    Hannah was a fantastic host! She was incredibly knowledgeable about each of the wine offerings. The chablis was great. The heirloom tomato gazpacho was delicious. The pesto tagliatelle could have used a little more flavor and the pasta was a little sticky like it had been cooked quite a bit earlier in the day while overall the rest of the ingredients were very fresh.

    Service and ambiance was great. Food not so much. The menu is very limited and meat is cooked to the chef’s like not to the customer’s like. It would be nice to be asked how we want our meat cooked. Other dishes are ok but nothing exceptionally great.

    Best dining experience I have had in sometime. Highly recommended. My husband and I made last minute reservations for our anniversary. Authentic and Phenomenal French food, fantastic service, and we made friends with our neighbors at the bar top. The price fixe menu allows them to make each dish perfectly. It was incredible to see our food being made. One of the owners was our server and she was fantastic. Will come back each time we visit the city.

    One of our favorite restaurants in the city! The service is fabulous and always on point. The rotating pre fix menu gives you wonderful choices. Try the adventurous appetizer it’s one of a kind. They don’t tell you what it is till after you’ve eaten it.

    We reserved outdoor seating but outdoor parklet was closed due to less customers. Restaurant inside was ok with windows open, though the decor does not look like a nice French bistro at all. The fix menu was so-so with zucchini soup/salad, duck breast with foie gras (extra $30), & cream chocolate/special dessert. I had a glass of red wine and my friend the birthday girl had a glass of rose. The food was ok not super tasty French cuisine. Service was good, they were sweet to put a small candle on the dessert for the birthday girl! I’ve been sampling all French restaurants in San Francisco, this one is not impressive at all. I would prefer to order my own food than a fixed menu.

    Perfect date night. The food was excellent. We were really impressed. Flavorful without a heavy butter taste often associated with French cuisine in the city. Our server was so fun & made us feel very welcome. We will definitely return with friends for another dinner.

    Food was above average but service service was lack luster with almost no introduction to the amazing dishes served or any kind of presentation of menu. Especially when you have a set menu a nice introduction and explantation of what make the dishes special would go nicely with the above average prices. Sadly did not live up to the hype.

    Excellent food, service and ambience. Prix Fixe menu included soup or salad, entree choice of chicken, fish or vegetarian and a dessert choice. The menu changes periodically. We started with appetizers and a bottle of wine. Tried the mystery appetizer and we were pleasantly surprised! Overall we had an amazing experience.

    Nice place with a French ambience. Service was excellent - waitress was attentive, but kept the low profile, so that my husband and I could enjoy our outing. Our waitress provided us with the nice description of each prix fixe menu item. The food was pretentious, but some dishes need some improvement - tuna and chicken were a little dry. Overall, very nice experience.

    Bouche is the top spot for us on our weekly date night dinners out, and yet it continues to surprise to the upside with the quality of the food. It is superb and a great deal. The $55 prix fixe is a steal...not sure why it's rated $$$$ when it should be $$$. And the staff will make you feel like family if you let them! A real treat on all fronts, food, wines by the glass or bottle (reasonable and high quality), service and ambiance. Takeout is great too.

    This is our second experience and it was every bit as good as the first time, if not better. Flavors and presentation are on point and really enjoyed our table seating next to the 2nd floor window. The service was intermittently spotty, but attentive when the server did appear. The Prix Fix is good value and the wine list has a solid selection of affordable choices.
