This tiny restaurant is cozy enough to feel like it's in Europe, where the staff speak French, and the food is delicious enough to return another time while in town (which I did). Highly recommend.

The phone here is the star - wonderful creative dishes that are simple yet stunning in there flavor and depth. Sometimes the service is tad slow, but the great food covers any minor fault you could find with the service - and would never take away from a try five star rating

We visited this small, intimate restaurant in December. Oh, what a lovely surprise! We were greeted with a warm welcome and shown to our table upstairs in a small "loft". We loved it! Our waitress who was very "French" was very knowledgeable about the wine list and suggested two very fine wines. They complimented our dinner nicely. They whole dinner,... More

Came here for dinner during the windy storm of SFO. Setting was cozy and warm with an appealing upstair tables. Came with strong recommendations from friends, but left with disappointment. For one, the wine selection was fairly so so. Most wines are pretty flat. The steak we ordered was fairly rough and taste was nothing close to the recommendation. One... More

Went to Bouche on Dec. 28 and was amazed by the food and service. This is small restaurant that deserves a lot of attention. There are only 8 or 9 tables in the upstairs dining area and it's s like a café and is rather dark. Downstairs has a bar and seating area along the wall with stools wher you... More

Enjoyed a very good dinner at the first floor bar service. Full table service is available upstairs but we were not wiling to wait. The result was good service and good food with a view on the Bush St. passers by. The bottom line was good food and good wine and typical French service. The bar service was not elegant... More

Small but mighty...wonderful flavors and preparations, uniquely presented. Wonderfully efficient and friendly staff, it's obvious the they enjoy being here. Very cozy loft dining or downstairs exhibition dining. Will definitely place this restaurant on the regular rotation in San Francisco.

This restaurant has a limited menu but everything on it is 5 star. The salmon cooked to perfection. The pork loin the best we ever had. This is a must stop in downtown Cisco. Great friendly staff too.

We ate here sat 29 October. I had halibut and my other half had steak and we had some nice chick pea fries to share. The portions were small (by European standards, never mind American). We had a bottle of white wine, which I fully admit could have been our poor choice, but it was terrible. Neither of us had... More
