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

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.

It’s my favorite place when in SFO. My only complaint is it gets very warm upstairs. The food, service and ambiance are fantastic.

Cute , authentic French Bistro. Loved the foie gras, liked the endive salad, didn’t like the skirt steak, liked the pear tart desert. Good French wine list.

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.

Bouche is a great place to have a delicious meal that is a fantastic value proposition. The food is excellent and the service attentive and thoughtful. The on-street parking could be better, but the Sutter garage is nearby and a valuable amenity. Excellent wine choices and good advice on pairing them with the food of the day.

We'd eaten many times at Bouche, pre-pandemic. I am so relieved they have survived. The menu is now much smaller, but it is well thought out. The service is efficient and friendly. Their space is SO LOVELY and welcoming!

I was a little concerned about the small menu but all the courses were very good and I had no fault in their selection of dishes. Wine selection was ideal and well priced.
A chilled pleasant casual atmosphere with pleasant French service and great French food.

Food was very good. A fixed menu will ensure you come back for more possibly a different specialty. Be sure to ask first. Waiter was very helpful. Restaurant is small but cozy. Reminded me of a restaurant in Manila and Bangkok with small size but good food and staff

Another lovely Brunch, on this visit I decided on the Omelette with field mushrooms. The omelette was flavorful with just enough creamy goat cheese to round out all of flavors of egg, herb and those wonderful mushrooms. Breakfast was accompanied by roasted and crisp fingerling potatoes and I ordered some bacon as well.

Now, feeling a little full, I had to have one of their signature Jams with toast. Their Banana Jam (is awesome) so good.

Okay, any sane person might be done at this point :) but there was one more treat in store. A truly lovely, chocolate pot de creame ….. oh wow !!

Thank goodness I have some hills to climb in my neighborhood for an after breakfast workout lol.

I digress, so, all of this was washed down with delicious coffee and if that was not enough a Mimosa as well.

Once again, a treat.

Brunch with my host Julie was as always, wonderful, you’ll likely see her on your visit.

Enjoy!!

Julia was an absolute delight and was very knowledgeable about the menu. I got the turnip soup, the monkfish, and the chocolate mousse, and every bite was just as delectable as the last - I have never had such good fish. The chef came out to check how the food was and was very sweet, I would definitely go back for multiple reasons.
