Birthday celebration is great there, afogato was amazing. The duck was yummy and the Brussels sprouts cauliflower starter and ceviche starter were yummy. The hostess brought us glasses and props to hold for photos, it was a fun night.

I v tried bisou twice, i prefer the brunch menu than the ladies menu which was not satisfying.
The interior of the place is very trendy and has an energetic atmosphere, service fast and efficient , but honestly the food needs some improvements so to be up to the scale...

I would recommend Bisou to a friend. The atmosphere was nice and very bright. The only downside of my experience, is that my friends and I were offered a drink by a waiter that was not on the menu but we were not informed of the price. The drink was $175. It was a nice drink but it would have been nice to be informed of the pricing since it was offered as a recommendation. We were also not informed that still water came with a price but that was not a big deal. I would visit again. The service and atmosphere was pleasant and welcoming. Very beautiful restaurant.

It’s a beautiful restaurant. It would make a great lunch spot after shopping. But I was there for dinner before the ballet. Service was ok, food was ok, but for a $200 dinner, there are lots of GREAT restaurants in Houston to choose from that would be better than Bisou. The floor was dirty, the dessert menu looked like it had been shoved in someone’s back pocket, and the waiter looked a bit disheveled. It charged a premium price for just an ok experience.

I had a reservation for 4 persons at 9:15 pm. I had to constantly inquire with the hostess when will we get the table. Soon, this table is getting up shortly. Finally at 10:40 they said we can have this table. We were leaving at that time. Unacceptable
On a previous occasion, the hostess promptly told us before being seated that we needed to give up that table at 9:30 pm because it was reserved. This is not what you tell a customer when he sits at 7:30. Very rude.
Great atmosphere but not sure I care to return to Bisou.

The food was very delicious and well presented, price was on the high end but the food merited the tab. The staff was plesent. The only downside for me is that we were seated at a very small high table in a corner next to the kitchen when there were plenty of more desirable tables available which is unfortunate when we spent around $400 for two persons.

After 9:30pm turns into a nightclub atmosphere which is a fun twist to just a regular restaurant, but if you want to dine quietly then arrive earlier then stay for cocktails.

Valet parking is not in front of the rest. You have to walk a few locations down.

Overall a good experience.

I had a reservation stating a high top table and they weren't going to give it to me until I showed them on my open table app! So after we went over to sit at table we were immediately told what time we were getting kicked out of our table! So tacky and RUDE! So as soon as 2 bar seats opened we immediately moved over there to eat because of their rudeness AND he couldn't kick me out of a barstool!

The 2 of us went for lunch at Noon. Very few diners. Nevertheless, we waited full 17 minutes for appetizers. Our water glasses were never refilled. We were there for hour and half. Food was delicious, though. We will give this restaurant a 2nd chance.

I would recommend Bisou to a friend ONLY for the music and a seat at the bar (if one is even available). The restaurant has a club/lounge nightlife atmosphere which is fun if you are not there for dinner. I would advise the restaurant to not let in "bar flies" until 11:30PM. We had a 9:15 PM reservation for dinner and got seated at 9:45PM, after waiting at the bar. That was honestly not a problem for me at all. The issue is that by 10:30PM the restaurant is filled with folks standing around the open areas leaning on our table, putting their empty drinks on our table, and pushing into our table while we are finishing dinner. Bisou is not to blame for the rudeness and lack of manners of others but they can help by giving the last reservation a good 90 minutes before their space is invaded by lingerers. Otherwise, the service was good.

Cocktails were not as good as our first few times at Bisou after we praised your cocktails to our friends. I requested a slightly dirty martini with four olives; asking for the olives that still had the pits in them because they are my favorite and I received an incredibly dirty martini with two pitted olives.

Service was incredibly slow; it took approximately 20 to 30 minutes before we received our initial cocktails.
