                  ALWAYS delicious. I love the food, I love the staff, I love the service. I've recommended this restaurant to several friends, and we all agree, it's the best.

                  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.

                  Took my mom out to dinner. It was perfectly quiet so we can talk, and was seated the way we asked for. I was able to see the kitchen and the chefs from the level up, they were all speaking French, it was so fun and felt very authentic.

                  We booked through Open Table and arrived on time, we were seated on the second floor above the kitchen. It was really hot up there and there were only 2 tables available but both were in the really hot room. My husband is over 70 and the heat was too much for him and I was concerned. We needed to leave for this reason. The seating man got very angry at us and said he would charge us for a $50 no show, I did not get into words with this angry man as I was not comfortable with this situation. He did charge us the $50 fee to my credit card even though we did show up and were seated. At this point I feel that the fee is not warranted as we did show, that does not mean we need to stay if it is an uncomfortable restaurant or situation. I feel the restaurant was in the wrong. I understand it is a hard time to be a restaurant, but also the customer should not be held hostage if they are uncomfortable.

                  An utterly delightful restaurant that I was so happy to have come across when searching online for places that were a short walk from my hotel (at the Westin St. Francis). The downstairs eating area is quite small (in a good way), with a generous window table, and I think one other table, plus several counter-style seats, three with a great view of the kitchen so you can watch the culinary team in action, with the team including the owners who plainly are proud of there place. There is a fixed (but changing daily or so) menu with three courses for a set price, with a few available add-ons for a surcharge. I opted for the "mystery" appetizer for my first course and was treated to two roasted, mustard-breaded marrow bones with pickled red onions, more mustard, and two thick slices of toasted bread. For my main, I had a skin-on branzino filet which was cooked to perfection, along with confit fennel and sea beans. Dessert was pear bread pudding. The service was attentive and charming, with two expert recommendations of wine by the class to accompany the courses. Next time I am in San Francisco, I will definitely be back.

                  They offer a vegan option for their prix fixe menu! It was a salad starter, more vegetables for the main, and a poached pear for dessert. The salad and the main were excellent and the dessert was pretty good. Clearly not a heavy meal, but great for a date or if you feel like eating healthily. Service was also great and the atmosphere was lively and fun.

                  Quaint, French atmosphere, super service and food, dessert and wine is amazing. In addition, prices are reasonable for the quality and service.

                  In a word "disappointing." Two at our table ordered the pea soup appetizer and left the bowls untouched after taking a couple spoon fulls. My daughter and I had the carrot salad appetizer which was unremarkable, at best (my daughter left hers because she thought it was too garlicky). Main courses were somewhat better, but desserts were a total letdown and the panna cotta was almost inedible (my daughter described it as "jello." All in all, not a satisfying performance, and needless to say, we won't be back and cannot recommend Bouche.

                  Ate at Bouche per a friend's recommendation and got the $55 5-course meal and a bottle of wine. Awesome value - it's an intimate place with a great vibe and the food and flavor had a quality of a much more expensive restaurant. Perfect date spot and I will be coming here again. Our server guided us to a well-balanced bottle of white that was within our budget and complimented the meal fabulously. Eat here. You won't regret it!

                  It was a fixed menu (with multiple choices within)which I wasn’t expecting when I made the reservation. However, the food was delicious and the service was impeccable.

                  This was our second visit for a late night dinner. The main dinner service was concluded but we were seated and greeted warmly and encouraged to relax and enjoy ourselves. Their prix fixe menu was once again delicious and thoughtfully prepared . The service is terrific and prompt. This is a real neighborhood gem off the Union Square area.

                  My first time here but definitely not my last!! The pre fixe menu had a good variety to choose from, I chose the veg tagliatelle with prosciutto and truffle add-ons. It was one of the absolute best dishes I've ever had. I could taste every flavor, no one flavor overpowered another. Same experience with every dish - such pure flavors. the chef let's every one of the ingredients speak for themselves. The pea soup was amazing - the peas were so good I had to know from where they were sourced (NewNatives, Freedom CA). I've never had such a robust flavored pea! And the service was excellent. Thanks to Sam for being such a warm and attentive host! They have an open kitchen right next to the bar. I loved being able to observe the chef and staff create their art. They were meticulous. I recommended them to the Omni (where I'm staying) concierge and front desk folks to add to their highly recommended list to share with guests. I do highly recommend this place to all.

                  My fourth visit to this restaurant and it never fails to impress. What isn’t there to like but perfectly prepare chicken drizzle with black truffle

                  Neighborhood gem. Prix fixe menu that was well executed, delicious! Staff was extremely attentive and friendly. Bone marrow special (add on appetizer), mushroom soup, beef cheek bolognese & chocolate fancier dessert were simply divine. Will definitely go back. They change their menus @ 2 weeks.
