  • "We go to Bizou often because the food is always good and the prices are very reasonable. We also like the totally reasonable corkage fee."

  • "My friend and I took our moms here for their birthday lunch.. Lovely place, great food, excellent service with friendly, helpful waiters AND a 2 lovely pieces of cake with lit candles for the 'birthday girls' (ages 86 and 91)... They LOVED the entire experience!"

  • "We have always loved Cafe Bizou, but we live in Ventura County, so hadn't been there in a long time. Last Saturday after an afternoon at the Pantages, we went for dinner. I had forgotten how delicious their food is! Two at our table had chicken dishes and two had Steak Au Poivre. The steak was tender and juicy and the sauce perfection! I am a light eater and rarely eat everything on my plate......but I ate and loved every bite! Cafe Bizou is at the top of my list of "Best Places to Eat"."

  • "This is the best Restaurant in Los Angeles that have the best food at a reazonable price and you can bring your own bottle of wine. Any night of the week is very bussy !!!!!"

  • "We got 'outdoor' seats which was nice. The waitress was barely polite, almost rude. Food was okay, I got cesar salad -good, then chicken angel hair pasta - so so. You could get it from mcdonalds Would tSte the same. Just avg taste. We asked for parmesan cheese which comes everywhere with any pasta, they had to make it a special Request. At the end-tiramisu, worst i have ever had!"

  • "We made a reservation through Open Table for my mother's 92nd birthday. I mentioned the birthday in the reservation. When the server asked about dessert, we mentioned to him again that we had a birthday. Nothing was offered. For a restaurant that seems to cater to the over 70 crouwd, you would think that they would do a much better job at birthday celebrations."

  • "As always the food and service were consistent, their monthly specials are a good choice for a variation to the regular menu."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "A wonderful restaurant with a great menu and reasonably priced. The staff is superb and service is impeccable. The owner/host is on top of everything. Start at the bar for a well crafted cocktail and continue with a bottle of wine taking advantage of the $2 corkage fee. We have been through most of the menu and have never been disappointed. This is a place we take our out of town friends to show them the best side of Los Angeles."

  • "A new friend invited me to join her for lunch at Cafe Bizou. This was the first time for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There were several items on the menu that I would like to try and so I'll be back......"

  • "This is my very favorite restaurant. I have been dining here for 18 years. My only concern is that the restaurant holds about 100 people or more, yet they have the smallest ladies' room I have ever seen. The sink is literally the size of a Kleenex box, and the lone stall is teeny tiny. I like to come here and sit and take my time and enjoy my meal, but the whole time I am reluctant to use the bathroom because it is so uncomfortable and there are usually 2-3 other ladies' waiting to use. They should raise the corkage a few bucks and pay for a remodel on the ladies' room."

  • "Cafe Bizou in Sherman Oaks is a neighborhood gem. The food and service is always top notch and the atmosphere is great for friends and family or for a romantic night out. The covered "patio" area in the front is really wonderful, too. Sometimes even with a reservation, you have to wait - but it is well worth it and there is a nice bar you can hang out at. They also have an amazing $2 corkage fee that they honor 7 days a week. Cafe Bizou is one-of-a-kind!!"

  • "Never have to wait to be seated. Service friendly, timely and can't beat the $2.00 corkage fee."

  • "Cafe Bizou is consistently a delight. The setting is lovely, dining early (6:00) meant that there were relatively few diners and so the noise level was low. The sesame crusted salmon on a potato pancake with a wine reduction always delights. My husband had the stroganoff which comes without sour cream, but the kitchen does give the patron sour cream on the side if he so requests. Our friend had a double order of sweet breads as her entree which she loved, the other friend had the filet mignon with fries and asparagus which he happily gobbled. Cafe Bizou is one of the very few reasons for these west siders to drive to the San Fernando Valley!"

  • "You can always get great food here. It has been here for a long time. A locals hangout and just moving back into this neighborhood I was happy that it took the test of time"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "pretty much all their food is good and prepared as if you were in a much more expensive restaurant. the dining room does get very noisy when busy, but it's still worth the trip. I'm not a fish eater, but everyone I go with who eats fish dishes raves. Try the carrot soup. Don't pass up the flourless chocolate cake for dessert."

  • "Cafe Bizou SO has been a great favorite of mine for 20 years, almost my second home. But occasionally even the best of places let you down. Earlier this week the service was terrible. We had to ask other waiters to track our waiter down when we needed him, drink refills were very difficult to obtain, and my dessert was only delivered after my friend had finished hers. Even the kitchen seemed off. Medium steak arrived rare, vegetables were cold, and the advertised "cod" in the fish and chips seemed more like tilapia. This is so out of keeping with normal standards. All I can think is that Philippe and his key staff have gone to France on vacation. Here's hoping they come back soon and restore their usual level of excellence."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "When I made the reservation I included a note that we were celebrating a bday. There was no mention of the bday at all. The service was lacking as well. We were seated and about 5 minutes later another couple was seated near us. The server greeted them first and took their order. We finished our appetizers before we received our iced teas and the server didn't check back on us. Once we were finished she walked by 3 times before finally dropping the check. It was very disappointing to have tried to plan a nice celebration and to leave so frustrated."

  • "went here for restaurant week & had the cedar planked salmon...it was the most amazing salmon ever!! i had salmon here before that was just good, but this one was the best i ever had anywhere! the woman i was with said the same thing."

  • "Wonderful ambience, great prices, great food! We have been here several times to celebrate a variety of occasions. We always find ourselves lingering longer than expected, and indulging in the chocolate lava cake and cappcucino..."

  • "Always my 1st choice for special occasions. Already made a reservation days before my daughter asked where I wanted to eat for my birthday. Lobster bisque is so good especially if you put some bread on it. Love Cafe' Bizou!!!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Took my sister for a birthday lunch. Our waiter Herbert was delightful and very patient with our indecision on what to order from the amazing menu. He made the best Mohito's that I have ever had! We both ordered the plank salmon on the prefit menu. Fantastic servered with perfectly cooked assortment of fresh vegtables. The only complaint was the lobster bisque tasted like tomator soup and the salad was limp and not very tasty. Would definetly go back again as the menu was so appealing and service was outstanding!"

  • "Consistently superior food and service. Amazing menu.....dollar soup or salad can't be beat. If you can "get a table"....don't pass up this fantastic restaurant."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Always amazing but I always make a reservation and always seem to wait over 30 minutes. Is there a secret I need to know? I see people get seated without a res so just wondering! Love this restaurant, out favorite in the valley!! The food is nothing short of amazing and the service always impeccable!!!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014

  • "First visit and was impressed. Very busy on an average Wednesday evening which was surprising. Food, Service, ambience was good. Will return if in the area!"

  • "Always a pleasant, quiet, atmosphere. Greeting is pleasant. Food is not as good as prior years (where you had to go back) and Server kept us waiting several times--1st to be greeted at table, then in between ordering (appetizer came first, and his long delay for my friend and I to order main course took awhile, although we were in no rush, but it would be nice for the server to come around from time to time so we don't feel abandoned); So in my experiences in the past years, better. The tables are usually all taken, so something is going right. l (I get the feeling same folk do visit often); Other then the 'little wait', okay status. I would say a special occasion for lunch---with good server, then it would be excellent."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Beautiful interior, terrific wait staff, food is usually terrific. However, this time we had the lobster mac and cheese and it was good, but not great. I love the Country French ambiance, several different areas for seating, will accommodate larger parties. This is my new go-to place for meeting friends for lunch!"

  • "WhenI made the reservation, I specifically said it was the other couples anniversary......no one at Café Bizou said or did anything to acknowledge what I had written............why ask for comments when not read or acted on?????? As usual, food/service good, were seated on time"

  • "A bargain price will bring you in, but good food and service will bring you back. We stumbled on a special holiday promotion at one of our flavorite places and was able to order a lobster-themed 3-course lunch, which was served all day on Memorial Day. The four of us tried different dishes and we were all very pleased with our choices. Based on this, I can assure you that Cafe Bizou serves an excellent lobster based menu whether for lunch or dinner."

  • "went for lunch. they have a very economical lunch special - 3 courses for $17 or $18. lots of older people there and they have stairs to enter the restaurant. they should have an easier way to enter. painful to watch them getting up the stairs with their walkers and canes"
