Thanks to the hotel staff and concierge for recommending we stay close to the hotel for our first dinner date out in the city. Bouche was EXCELLENT! We chose to sit in the front window, eating at the window countertop/bar seating. Great people watching on Friday night which happened to be St. Patrick's day too. The grapefruit salad was fresh...

While in SF friends took us to Bouche. What a lovely place, the food is so good. I just love the Bacon Bread. This is a cozy French restaurant well worth the time to visit. You will not be disappointed.

Small, intimate, fresh food,French influence, knowledgeable great service! This is a neighborhood gem yet still downtown San Francisco. On my frequent visits I have never been disappointed by the excellent food, wine selection or the service. I love to sit at the counter especially if I'm dining alone as it feels you are right in the kitchen. A true favorite.... More

Superb French cooking to a very high standard. Wonderful find while walking out to eat in the rain. First meal to fully finish because of tastiness. A welcome find for food and good French wine

We were welcomed into Bouche on a chilly, rainy night. The place was packed, celebrating their anniversary. There was a buzz in the air and we were offered some bubbles since our table wasn't ready. Overall, traditional bistro food, done well. I heard that the bacon bread was fabulous. It was crazy fun matched with well done food. Go and... More

Bouche was quite a find! We had reservations (that I highly recommend) and we were immediately seated upstairs by the window. All the food was delicious, such as chickpea fries as an appetizer, swordfish as an entree and creme anglaise and dulce de leche for dessert. Wines were mostly French. Service was friendly and attentive. Small restaurant has it all!

If you like small, atmospheric bistros, look no further. We stopped in here for dinner and were blown away by the food. We sat in the bar and were served by the charming Matthew. He recommended the pork belly and hangar steak and we were amazed by the tastes. Don't pass the opportunity to have shaved truffles on the steak!... More

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
