    Service was excellent, from the welcome to explanations of the menu, check ins with each course, water glass refills, and a special birthday wish for dessert. The food was delicious with every course exceeding expectations. We are never disappointed and Bouche continues to be our favorite place to eat when visiting San Francisco.

    Sweet little two story. We got there at 5:30 to beat the rush. It was perfect , lovely french music, for 20 mins...They packed too many tables on the little second floor, the noise level was WAY too high to hear one another without raising your voice even though the windows were open. Forget about hearing the music. It was closer than even a four top table would be! If you're at all claustrophobic or want a romantic atmosphere, this is NOT your place. We took our food to go halfway through because of the closness & noise level. The young Asian woman who waited on us was WONDERFUL!! She was extremely knowledgeable on ALL the wines. The menu was set and the food along with presentation was superb!! I recommend the food but because of being packed as sardines, well, I would just say prepare yourself.

    First, sorry for not posting photos of my DELICIOUS dinner. Yes, once again, happy to have dinner at one of my favorite neighborhood haunts. Let’s get into it :) Dinner started with a chilled, utterly delicious and refreshing sweet Corn Gazpacho enhanced with Coconut Milk and topped with crunchy and savory, fried Lotus Root. Now, I’m a little biased, as I have a well known love of soup. Tonight’s soup was superb. Next up, a pairing of pork tenderloin slices with a lovely and rich chunk of pork belly. The sauce, oh the sauce ! Surrounding the tender morsels was a rich gravy of what tasted like the pan juices from the flavorful meat and then further enhanced with a spiced, vegetable purée and juicy semisweet fig slices. The flavor, divine. To finish, a light and brilliant berries and a crisp crumble topping with garnishes of light dollops of whipped cream. Slightly sweet (just right) with a fresh berry tang yum. I did happily indulge in my usual glass of light, rose sparkling wine. Delightful, delicious. Oh, and yes a lovely desert wine, a muscat like but delightfully less sweet version, it was refreshing. Coffee to finish. Julie, the Chef, and my knowledgeable, caring wait staff, once again provided a lovely service tonight. Looking forward to the next menu and hope to return soon.

    Food was great and the price was very reasonable and affordable for a 3-course meal. At one point we had to wait for quite a while for our dessert, the server noticed it and immediately had our dessert served. In addition he took away the charges of our tea as an apology for the delay of our dessert. Will definitely go back again as it made me feel like I am back in France.

    What a hidden gem! We went up a set of stairs featuring a botanical wall mural to a small area with 6 tables and had such a memorable evening. Our server was lively and attentive. The 3 course prix fixe menu changes every week or two, so make sure to try different things around your table - they are all fantastic. We could look over and see the tiny kitchen turning out the most amazing food. The tables are tightly spaced so we chatted with our neighbors who graciously shared some of their bordeaux. Highly recommend this authentic French restaurant for both the service and experience

    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.

    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.

    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.
