why do people like this place???? – If you enjoy having the wait staff repeatedly walk by your table while your drinks are empty, this is the place for you. My experience was that the waitress was not trained well at all. You had to ask about the specials. It was difficult throughout the night to get her attention. But beyond the bad service, the food here is rather forgettable. There is nothing about the food which makes me or anyone who visited with me think we ever need to go back.
Fun – We arrived before the dinner section of the restaurant was open; they sat us at a table in the bar area and offered us drinks until it was all ready. The waiter was very affable, even anecdotal, as he told us of the background of the resturant. Though pricey and not the most creative, the food was saporous and reflected the environment of the restaurant nicely. It was an absolutely charming and fun experience.
Dissapointed – The resturant was perfect for a romantic evening. Which my boyfriend and I had. The service was great our waiter was very helpful and polite. The food could have been better. I think we spent way too much for what we had. The only thing good about it was the my sparkling wine and appetizer which was the morrocan kabob. I wish we went for pizza instead.
Christmas eve at BIX – We were greeted graciously and escorted to a lovely table upstairs with a view of the restaurant. Unfortunately it took 10 minutes before anyone took our drink order. We enjoyed some savory hor-d'oeuvres, but the martinis were miniscule and for three people our martini bill was $108 for four rounds. Dinner was good but lacked luster. Desert and cheese plate were fine but does it take a rocket scientist to make this stuff?? All in all I think this restaurant is overrated and for $500 for three people you better take out a bank loan before you go.
Great service; good food. – Went to Bix for a one-year anniversary, and everything went quite well. Service was great, food was delicious and the wine menu complete. Overall a great evening.
Simply fabulous! – My boyfriend and I were in town from Chicago in Jan. , and had a wonderful time back this year. Bix does such a nice job recreating the speakeasy - the jazz trio on the weekend is great, the beautiful two-tier room, low-lighting, great cocktails and food made for an incredible evening out. Our server was very attentive and though we were late for our reservation, were seated promptly.
We'll be back in town visiting family in November and can't wait to go back to celebrate my bday!
Somewhat disappointed – I heard that the bananas foster was fantastic, so I made 9:30 reservations to take my nieces to have it. When we were seated and I asked for the dessert menu, the host informed us that the tables were primarily for dinner, so were asked to move to the very crowded bar. I refused to order dessert until there were 3 seats available. A different host checked in on us, and I informed him of the situation. He apologized and found us a table 30 minutes later. I understand that dinner is what brings in the money, but a meal's a meal and I'm paying no matter what. I guess I'll have to make later reservations next time...that's if I go back.
A 10! – We were very late for our reservation on a busy Saturday night - we called to let them know and they told us to still come and they would fit us in. Despite the crowds, we were seated in 10 minutes and the hostesses were so nice, which is rare in such a great and popular restaurant! The atmosphere is just perfect - cozy, romantic and with such a great energy. The steak tartare and lobster spaghetti were fabulous as was the seabass. We topped it all off with the bananas foster, which was delicious. The whole evening was just perfect and I look forward to going back again!
stylin' beer break – My husband & I dropped in via the quaint alley for a refreshing beer break during some holiday shopping. We shared the complimentary seasoned bar mix treats and then tried the Oysters - delish! We were only in for about 20 minutes, and it was quite early so people were just arriving for dinner. The room is gorgeous and dimly lit - very romantic. A gem.
Pleased at Bix – Great full bar - menu has great meat offerings and all of the food was exquisite! Staple dessert renditions were yummy - try the bananas foster. Well worth the price, lovely atmosphere. Upstairs noise level ok for conversation.
