Glad that the prix fixe special was on the menu when we arrived even tho it wasn’t on the website! Salmon was moist the way I like it. One of the best deals in town - good food, service, price on the prix fixe and ambiance.

Went on Saturday evening with a 7:30 reservation. We arrived a little early and were surprised to see how many people were waiting. It is apparently a very popular place with locals. There is a nice warm atmosphere and a small bar in the entrance foyer. Despite the crowd our reservation was honored on time. There is a nice menu with a wide variety of choices.
I had lobster bisque which was very good- not overly creamy like some can be. I chose a three meat entree which was nicely served however the meat was average except for the short rib which was very good. My wife had a chicken dish which was very good. There are a lot of fish choices on the menu which I would probably try if I return. The prices are very reasonable for the types of menu items offered.

The food was very good, but the service was terrible. We had to wait over 20 minutes to get water and 30 minutes to take the order. The waiter kept Linn ignoring us and didn't give us any bread. I would go again if they train their workers better.

Food and service were very good. Waiter was very pleasant but got my order a little off. Asked for no bacon but order came with it. Valet parking was a little high.

Not recomend it. Was waiting 45 min to get table. Made reservation 1 day in advance. Hostess was rude and not welcoming. Owner took in people the he knew before people that made reservation. Food was brought seperately and unorganized. It was brought plate by plate at various times.

Awesome dinner. We went there after 20 years. It’s better now. Very busy, so you better make a reservation.
We had escargots which were excellent, short ribs, tuna and halibut. We were a party of 6. Very tasty entrees. Bread pudding was excellent .
Very good service. I highly recommend!!

I've wanted to eat there for a long time but never got around to it. However, on Thanksgiving they provided a pre-fixe dinner of all the fixings. And for a reasonable price. My companions didn't do the turkey, etc. They loved their meal. It's a French inspired restaurant. I can't say that I was too pleased with the American Thanksgiving meal, but the flourless chocolate cake was delicious. I will definitely go there again to try their more usual food.

We love Cafe Bizou and all of their seafood and meat options. We also appreciate their flexibility in exchanging items on the menu for other items, e.g. exchange mashed potatoes for more vegetables.

I have been going there for years so I wont stop going just because they had a bad night.
Service was very slow, waitress went into hiding, when asked to speak to a manager he never came.
Like I said, food is always on point but tonight just too many large groups and the kitchen was overwhelmed.
Better luck next time I guess

I just don't understand why there was a mandatory 18%gratuity tax for our group of 8 when you can't provide a high quality service from your wait staff. They were quick to put away our plates after eating though.

I was very disappointed. First of all, they had not prepared a table for 7 and had to reset our table while we were standing there waiting.

The server forgot us once we got our food. The pancakes were mediocre. When I go to brunch and order pancakes, I expect to have pancakes that are better than mine. I think they had been made earlier and were just sitting under a heat light. They were flat and tasteless.

I went for my 4th anniversary of meeting the love of my life. Our table was ready right away in the patio area. The service was very good and we ended up ordering several items over a few hours and there was no pressure to clear the table.

The food was very good and attractively priced. The portions were reasonable.
