The food was of good quality and volume was good too. They had a football special which we took advantage of. Half price appetizers...we had the calamari...and one of the football specials was a $10 burger and fries that was very abundant. It was probably a half pound burger. Yum, I'll be back!

The food was ok but not too exciting--a bit overpriced for what I had (tenderloin sandwich). Others seemed to enjoy the meatloaf and the duck a la orange. Staff was nice. Don't think I would have any occasion to go back.

Great little find in downtown Chicago. Nice menu with hearty portions and the service was excellent and warm. Prices were terrific as well. Felt a tad "diner-y," but the prices and quality of food makes up for any atmospheric issues. Would definitely go back.

We came on a Monday night for a late dinner. We had just gotten back from a camping trip and were craving a good steak. This was one of the few places open late so we decided to give it a shot. I had their filet medallions, they were so tender and flavorful. My boyfriend got the ribeye streak which was a special for that day I believe and he enjoyed it as well. The place was quiet, probably because it was around 11pm on a Monday night but it was nice. There is a chill ambience to the place even if in passing it looks super fancy. I would definitely recommend this place.

Menu had good variety. Good flavors and arrived to table hot, which I appreciate. Generous portions but not too big. Outside eating space was just ok, should be neater and more interesting.

After a Cubs game we were looking for a nearby River North restaurant with a variety of offerings including vegetarian friendly that wasn't outrageously expensive. Bijan's filled the bill nicely. The food was very good, and the service excellent. We sat at an outdoor table on a pleasant evening. All in all it was perfect.

We always eat at Bijan’s whenever in Chicago. The service is great, but the menu options are practically endless and the hours accommodate theatre devotees. Always the perfect traditional French bistro. Love Bijan’s.

The restaurant was completely empty when we arrived at 12:15. (Made a reservation seem silly.) That being said the service was great and so was the food.
We had brunch food and salads. Very delicious. And we were also treated to a piece of cake to celebrate a birthday. We chose Bijan’s because it was a convenient location
for us. We would definitely recommend it.

Food was good. Service left a lot to be desired. I never received my complete order and it was obvious that the waitress was unaware that she did not get our order correct.

Great atmosphere! The folks working there were lovely...just very nice and accommodating. I wish they had more vegetarian options, and there were no vegan options to speak of so maybe they will add something to their menu. :)

Love this place! Great food for reasonable price, great happy hour (starts 3pm) and open late. Special menu for a special occasion such as St Patrick’s Day is also highly recommended!! Last but not least, they have a great host Ralph!!

Not what we expected from the info online. It was better. Only there for breakfast. But it was great. Everything prepared to order and had plenty to eat. Loved the atmosphere. Felt like a Chicago bistro. Ha.

Service was prompt and friendly. The rigatoni and sausage is always a favorite. French onion soup is delicious as well. This is a good place for everyday dining as well as dates, not too loud or too large.

We each had lobster tails one had to be sent back as spoiled. We had gone a couple of days earlier and was charged $3 less for a vodka drink. When asked about it they had said they charge for ice. Asked to speak to a Manager and he had no further explanation and in fact walked away. They did subtract the ice cost.....but no apologies nothing.

I was happy with how accommodating they were. We needed to leave in 45 minutes, so they were good to make sure we were served in time. It was a good restaurant with good food & good people. Oh, & the French onion soup was delicious!

Perfect for a group of diverse ages and food preferences! We had 9 people ranging in age from 13 to 77. Two people were eating gluten- and dairy-free. We got a lot of items across the menu (guacamole, steak salad, caesar salad, beef medallions, chicken, french onion soup, and others) and aside from the chicken quesadilla (was OK but not great) everyone was really happy with their meal. Great service. We could hear each other talk so were able to have a great conversation.
