    We came here to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. The staffs are all super nice and well prepared. Everyone said "HBD" to her when we walked into and out of the place. Lights were dim and the ambient was great, although a bit noisy as the 2nd floor was crowded. Tastes of appetizers and desserts were so creative, while that of the main courses were solid. One of the desserts came with a lit candle so we had a little candle-blowing ceremony and it was wonderful. Very likely to come back in the future and recommend to everyone especially couples.

    First time eating on the 2nd level, highly recommend. Bouche is a gem- nice charming bistrot ambiance, good service(tho inconsistent- our waiter didn’t describe any of the dishes, but a server for the neighboring table did), and delicious food. Highly recommend the salmon, best fish I’ve had in awhile. And the butternut squash soup was divine. Took a star off because both desert options were very mediocre. Without an a la carte option they really should offer a non-desert prix fixe, not everyone wants sweets, especially if it’s just wasted calories.

    We booked Bouche because their website says they do small plates. In fact they do a set 3 course dinner for $55 + tax + tip starting at at least 20%! Soup or salad to start, pork chop, salmon or mushroom tagliatelle for main course. The pork chop was disappointingly tough, the salmon ok but not special. The pork was served with an indifferent potato dish and the salmon with gritty greens. We had both puddings and shared. The cake was just that - a piece of sponge cake with no distinctive flavour and some squirty cream. The other was isle flotante - two isles but where was the creme anglaise for them to float on! Two very small glasses of Cotes de Rhone wine at $15 each. The tables are so tightly packed together and the noise level so high it was almost impossible to talk to each other. Add to that the main guy in charge had only one volume - full blast - and the main woman waiting was only slightly quieter . Service was not brilliant - we waited ages for someone to acknowledge that we were at our table, then a wait for our wine, cutlery forgotten, amuse bouche served to everyone when they’d ordered except us. Our bill was not much short of $200 for a very ordinary, not French at all meal . Avoid!

    There were a lot of great things about Bouche. Service was awesome and the atmosphere was fantastic; intimate, rustic, and cool. The set menu had the perfect variety of options. We loved our starters but our mains were slightly lacking. The salmon was quite under cooked in the middle. The server recognized it when he picked up our plates, which was great. They ended up giving us an extra dessert instead of comping part of the salmon dish. I got the mushroom tagliatelle and it was pretty good. I’d recommend it for the wine, vibe and service.

    Our new favorite restaurant in SF. Does that say it all? You will be transported to Paris. But, you will be served not by a formal French waiter, but by an enthusiastic and ebullient, tall, handsome Samuel. The food is to die for. Good luck finding the place. Look for the outdoor flame heaters, at least in cooler weather.

    Bouche is a small intimate restaurant. It serves a prix fix menu of 3 courses for $55. Portion is not huge but you will be full after the 3 courses. We had the Petrel Sole and Porcini Tagliatelle and both were cooked to perfection.

    We enjoyed our dinner. The sitting was close but nice environment. We had the quinoa salad, seafood stew, duck ( ran out of the lamb), and both desserts. Also had the parsnip soup but it needed more spices. That was the only disappointment. We liked the glasses of wine but would have liked a bigger choice.

    The food and service was excellent, and at a very reasonable price. We enjoyed the fixed menu and added the “Adventurous” appetizer, which was an amazing duck confit with a butternut squash purée. Absolutely delicious! Very good wines and perfectly dessert portions. The servers were very attentive, engaging and friendly.

    We reserved a table for 2 and sat outdoors in a covered area on the street, which was fine for that sort of thing. Service was excellent. The menu is prix fixe and everything we tried was excellent and quite innovative, for example the seafood stew served on a concentrated seafoody tomato sauce. A very nice French bistro. Highly recommended. The menu changes on Tuesday every 2 weeks.

    We had a superb dinner at one of the outdoor tables. The limited prix fixe menu had enough choices for my picky husband and we enjoyed everything. The octopus in the seafood stew was amazing. The service was excellent and they were sensitive to our timing issues as we need to get to the opera. Highly recommend this place.

    I have said it before, magic can come from small kitchens and Bouche is yet again, a perfect example. Let’s get into it. Once again, I could live life happily on the Soups made here. Tonight’s soup a lovely, velvety and fragrant Parsnip Soup. So simple in execution but to be so flavorful in its production and the first spoonful, sublime right to the last sip. I have been coming here as often as can as its in my neighborhood but each time, I always say I must try the Pasta Dish but get so caught up in the other selections (that change semimonthly). Well, I had to do it. I ordered the pasta as my main, and received a steaming, herbaceous and richly aromatic bowl of comfort and joy. So, delicious and quite filling. A joy ! I finished with my usual coffee and then Dessert ! Oh, the Chocolate Financier cake with crème anglaise and chantilly cream, yummmmmmmm Someone please hug the pastry chef for me !! Until the next menu or maybe before.
