  • "My husband and I absolutely love the Parmesean crusted Sand Dabs with the mashed potatoes and the vegetables you cook. PLEASE Don't change a thing!!! Beautifully prepared and delicious."
    Dined on 8/30/2014
  • "The food was to die for! My roasted pork tenderloin was perfectly cooked and the mashed potatoes needed nothing added to them. Although we were sat very quickly which I appreciate, the table we were sat at was not to my liking. It was a small table in the corner of the restaurant that was crowded by other tables. I did not say anything because my girlfriend was fine with the table. Our server was nice but there were lapses of time I which she would disappear. So the wait time was a bit long. Overall, it was a nice experience, especially because of the food."

  • "We have visited this restaurant on many occasions. We always leave telling ourselves we love this place. This is a great neighborhood gem. Great food, very reasonable prices, terrific staff, and 2 dollars corkage fee. You just can't go wrong with it. There are two of these reataurants, one in Sherman oaks and one Pasadena. We have tried the one in Pasadena a couple of times... It's pales in comparison to the one in Sherman Oaks."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "We always have to wait around 10-15 minutes past our reservation time for a table, but people-watching is fun, and it's worth the wait."

  • "We enjoyed celebrating our dear friend's 91st birthday with him and his lovely wife. It was a perfect evening with outstanding food prepared hot and delicious, provided by excellent servers. We were sorry to have the Cafe Bizou in our Santa Monica neighborhood close but at least we could still travel to Sherman Oaks for good food."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "This place was definitely crowded at 8 on a Froday night, but by 9, had begun to thin out. Great service, reasonable prices, and a menu with many options make this a great place for old school French."

  • "I first ate dinner at Café Bizou way back in 1994. I've been back many times since then. So, for my birthday dinner, I chose Bizou. I had lobster bisque (my favorite) and one of the specials - Beef Wellington, which was served with twice-baked potatoes and asparagus. Very good. Every time I drive by Café Bizou, it always seems to be busy. I think it might be due to the old, "if it isn't broken, don't mess with it" kind of things. Anyway, I enjoyed the evening."

  • "Every DineLA, we try to go to new restaurants, but always include Café Bizou. Their DineLA menu is perfect, a great value. For some reason, we missed it this past DineLA so were thrilled that they decided to extend the menu through August."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Cafe Bizou extended their Dine LA menu including this past weekend. A 3 course steak and lobster tail meal was $35.00. Outstanding food and value. Favorite place."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "What can be said about Café Bizou that hasn't already been said? The fact that it has been in business for all these years and is always busy is testimony enough. New restaurants come and go on Ventura Blvd. but Café Bizou endures."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Our party had the Sand Dabs regular and the Parmesan Crusted Sand Dabs and the Pork Loin. Delicious!!! We will be back. Loved the Mash Potatoes and the choices of veggies that put with the meal. Yummy!!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "We have been coming here for many years and the service, prices, and good food are outstanding. None of us live in the "neighborhood" if you will, coming from Simi Valley to the Valley. Our only thought this time was that we were not "inside" and had some trouble hearing as we were so close to the bar. Nest time we will ask for a different area. Keep up the good food, reasonable prices and the $2 corking fee. Our other friends come from Mar Vista."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "I don't recall how we found Cafe Bizou, but we are sure happy that we did. It provides consistently great food and service at amazingly low prices. This is where we bring our out-of-town guests, and they are always very pleased as there is something for everyone. We are partial to the fish dishes. Some of the food items like the stuffed mushroom appetizers are just so delicious we wonder how they make them! Then you add in some special menus for Holidays and the ridiculously low $2 corkage fee and you have a total winner. Be sure to make reservations - it can be totally packed on any night. The only negative is the usual non-existence of parking along Ventura Blvd, so we just give the car to the excellent valets."

  • "Went to dinner Wednesday evening- my dinner companion and best friend is on this very strict diet and they totally accommodated her needs while just ate everything in sight (Had the monkfish which I love their preparation. ) Just make a res ang go! best food for the price and quality of service ANYWERE in LA.!!~"

  • "I have dined at Cafe Bizou many times and have always find the food and service above most restaurant at much higher price point. So for a great dining experience at a reasonable price and normal ambience Cafe Bizou can not be beat."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Been going here for years - they have a lot of regulars. Great little cozy bar good for just a drink, or a drink before dinner. It's quasi French - Americanized French. fantastic service, great ambience, good food!"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "I have always liked this spot and you cannot beat their prices, still one of the most wallet friendly spots in the valley. On this particular day had brunch with a friend. We arrived when it had just opened, so it wasn't very crowded. But the service was just a wee bit slow even though the server was very polite and pleasant. Also have to say that the omelet advertised as "goat cheese omelet" had barely any cheese at all."

  • "Seated 10 min. of reservation and all down hill from there. Frenzied waiter dropped a basket of bread. White bread w/none of the dark nut bread. Asked waiter," they ran out" It was 6:15 they open at 5:30!! "They are cutting back" he said when asked why they don't order more loafs. I ordered the $1.00 salad and it probably had 1 1/2 leafs of torn romain and NOTHING else on the plate & should have been called $.15 salad. Owner Philip, noticed the plate, offered another salad but it never came. Ordered pasta with lobster, scallop and shrimp. Again "they are cutting back" said waiter, had 1 small piece of lobster, 2 shrimp and 1 lg scallop. Pasta tasted off (didn't even taste fish)so ordered lamb chops which were bland and tough."

  • "I was disappointed for the second time at the Sherman Oaks restaurant. It was a busy night (Thursday) and our server had too many tables to take care of. My citrus salmon was "ok." Same experience at lunch and I only went back because it was halfway to meet my client. The Pasadena restaurant is much better."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "The food was amazing! Our waiter knew exactly what to recommend and was very pleasant. Would definitely go back for more! The food was delicious!"

  • "I've been here before for a birthday dinner a few years ago and it was fabulous. The food was tasty and appealing to the eye. The server was attentive without being overbearing. He was knowledgeable about the menu and made wonderful recommendations. Came here on 7/26/14 for dinner to celebrate an anniversary. The restaurant looked like it needed to be updated. The host was wonderful, but our server was mediocre. The food was just okay. Disappointed and disappointing. I had fond memories of this place and now I'm okay if I never go back."

  • "My wife and I very much enjoyed our anniversary dinner -- service was great and prices surprisingly affordable. The stuffed mushroom appetizer was particularly outstanding, and I highly recommend the flourless chocolate cake as well. Getting seated next to a couple of very well known professional athletes was an unexpected bonus!"

  • "We had an reservation at 6:30, we were a few minutes late, but it took almost an hour to get seated. When we did get seated, the food came quick. But the place is loud. There are plenty of 'older' men and women, it seems it is quite the pickup spot on a friday night if you are looking for a cougar over 55. I actually observed a couple of guys hitting up on the ladies... its happening out there in sherman oaks. The food was good, but service was slow. Thee waiter got our order mixed up a bit (its a bit loud) but got it corrected swiftly. Over all not a bad dining experience. I did notice many couples on dates (including me), lots of them celebrating anniversaries and birthdays. Some didnt look happy to be with their significant others..."
