    Service was wonderful, sat at the bar and the bartender was on top of everything! Had the Octopus upon his recommendation and it was delicious! Cocktail was great too. Very cute ambiance as well. Definitely worth the stop!

    On July 24th, there was a birthday party, and the people there were horrible loud, and very impolite. How they treat the personnel and the high noise can ruin everybody’s experience in the place.

    This place is dark, gross and completely empty. Our server was excellent, but the food was disgusting. The charcuterie featured stale cheddar cheese cubes (they were old and so hard they must have been left out), a couple scrapes of some other green cheese that tasted like refrigerator mold, three hard-as-a-rock toast points, a couple of slimy string beans (on a board? Ew), and a few pieces of cauliflower. For $24. The rest of the food was equally inedible. Even the fries were cold and tasted like they had been scraped off someone’s plate from the night before. Skip this place entirely even if you’re staying at the hotel. Order Uber Eats if you have to. I paid $78 to not eat.

    The sea salt fries were amazingly good. That is why there are 3 stars. Otherwise The food was inconsistent, the service was mediocre. Yhe selection was limited, and the dining room was empty. Not sure why there were no reservations on Open table because there were only three tables occupied in the hour that we were there. My mother and I both ordered broccolini. Mine was decent but her was overdone and tough. The waiter was pleasant enough, but clearly tired. He even jokingly whined a bit about having to bring my mother a spoon for her tea. Yes she sent him back several times, but a spoon should be a no brainer when milk and sugar are requested. Lastly, getting there required walks through isolated hallways. Not a place to which I would return or recommend.

    One hour or more to receive entrees; we were the only table occupied when we entered the restaurant (2 people), on time, for our 6:15 reservation. Pre-show dinner (performance at Straz) so booked an early time, thinking we could then take a leisurely stroll over to the venue. By the time we left, the dining room was still mostly empty. After inquiring about the delay, our food arrived - a few minutes later - we had to eat very quickly. I realize restaurants are struggling to find personnel and we try to be patient and understanding when dining out, but something went wrong here. Food was just ok, not worth the aggravation.

    Why isn't this place busier? Hidden gem for sure! When I couldn't get reservations for brunch, I found Bizou and am so happy I did. Great food, magnificent architecture and decor, and very good service (our server was super-efficient and would have 5 stars if her level of "elegance" matched the level of the restaurant and food). Bizou is on my new fav list for sure!

    Great bar! Bartender and cocktails superb. Restaurant poor. Small menu. Weird combos. Steak all grizzle. Chicken Milanese served only with a quarter cup wilted arugala. No sauce, no starch. Dry. Waiter kept complaining about being busy despite 4 tables out of 25 being filled.

    I was a little disappointed that the menu on Easter was some type of Buffett for $50, when I spoke to the manager on the phone about a reservation that I made for 3 due to a glitch on the site, I wasn’t informed that it would be a buffet after I called to clarify that we could order the regular brunch menu to which she agreed. In no way saying it was her fault, definitely a miscommunication - but the value of the buffet menu for the price did not seem to level out to me and my party. Basically all meat, no vegan or vegetarian friendly options. Tongs were being used for several different types of food - cross contamination issue. Wish the website made it more clear what the Easter menu was. Our waitress Alex was delightful though and the manager Andrea did apologize for the discrepancy ! The unlimited mimosa price was definitely worth it tho.

    Easter brunch. I thought this place would be great for Easter, I was wrong. It was a buffet for brunch because of the holiday which is usually ok at most places. The food tasted like it had been sitting out all day and the waitress confirmed that it was. The bread was stale the eggs were hard as a rock and some bins were completely empty. I’ve had bad food before but, for $50 per person plus a mandatory 20% tip on self serve is ridiculous!! I don’t recommend

    Went for Easter brunch. The buffet was picked through and I had to find someone to take our drink order. Utter disappointment and it was my birthday. On top of that valet stated the waitress would have our valet fee removed and then the manager tried to “explain” to us validate meant adding it to our bill. Not upset about fee , but the lack or service and Courtesy. Will not go back. Don’t waste your money here.

    We had a very nice meal & cannot say enough about our server who unfortunately is not on the check, but she knows who she is & hopefully let management know. We had asked for a booth, but no such luck until things began to clear out & she offered to move us. Always an easy walk from church at St Andrew's! Thx, Dr McGhee 😎👍

    The only thing that made this not a one star was the manager on duty. Our sever Cole, was awful. He literally didn’t even water our table, instead he told us he had been there since 6:30am, and was exhausted so he was going to take a 15 minute break. WHO DOES THAT?! We had to ask him if he would take our drink order. After he did, he forgot to ring them in. I had to get a manager to bring us water. Then after 30 minutes with no drinks when I asked him, I watched him go to the computer, then rush to the espresso machine to make our lattes. We went for my wife’s birthday, and when he brought the cake out, he brought zero Sharing plates, and nothing to cut it with. I literally had to clear the table myself, get plates, and cut the cake with a knife from a roll up at the next table. I had to ask the bartender again, to find our sever for the check, which of course took him forever again. Luckily the manager was very nice and the food was good, but unfortunately I won’t be going there again. Oh and just to put the icing on the cake, there were a total of 3 tables in the restaurant so it’s not like he was busy.

    The location is unique with great ambience. It can get loud when people are in the bar area however. The food was average with a limited menu but the choices had a good variety. The salad that I had was served with very cold chicken instead of the chicken being warm which tells me it was prepared ahead of time and not fresh. Cold salad with cold chicken it’s just not a good combo. The dressing was fairly bland so it was not the best choice. My husbands dish however was a pasta dish that was much better. Our server was terrific and very attentive .

    Needed a brunch place for a friend coming to town. I’m so glad we were able to try Bizou Brasserie. I was a little worried about the price and small menu but we all very much enjoyed our meals. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly and made sure we didn’t see the bottom of our mimosas. I am looking forward to going back soon!

    Located in old courthouse wonderful atmosphere. The brunch menu while small was excellent. we had an omelet and the benedict both were wonderful. The only reason not 5 stars was service. Hostess sat us, after waitress dropped coffee didn't see her again. Hostess came ad took our order after 15 minutes and pretty much took care of us. we saw our waitress once more when i flagged for a coffee refill and she dropped of check at end. Other than the 1 waitress lack of attention, overall experience was very good. will return dinner and next next trip to Tampa
