    The food wasn’t bad but it’s definitely a party atmosphere which was not what we were looking for. You are practically yelling at each other. I’m sure they cater to a crowd that enjoys the very loud music and overpriced cocktails. It just not us.

    I’ve heard great things about Bisou, so coming I had a few expectations and I thought the it was a great experience. The food was delicious, the service was outstanding and considerate, and the overall ambiance was decadent. Would highly recommend and be going back!

    I did not have a good experience at bisou last night. Our waitress never asked us if we would like anything to drink. She just brought us water and tended to her other two tables. When she finally came to us she asked us what would we like to eat she still didn’t ask us if we wanted drinks had to tell her then we ordered our entrees. My friend ordered the red fish with crab meat. Her food smell so fishy and tasted horrible. The fish wasn’t fresh at all and smelled really bad. The waitress never even came back and asked how our food was. After we ate the waitress didn’t offer desert she just asked would we like the check. It just felt like she wanted us out of there we felt rushed the whole time. I watched how nice and upbeat she was to the couple that got sat next to us so it was weird when she got to us she was very dry and not attentive. Terrible service and the food was not fresh my friend barely touched it and the waitress saw that and didn’t even ask if everything was ok.

    Music volume started off at a good level then for some reason they decided to blow your ear drums. Literally yelling across the table to talk. Should have just texted each other. $50 Filet, ordered medium came out darn near well done. You’re paying for the ambiance not the food.

    When I have a confirmed reservation, I do not expect to be told there are not any tables available inside, and that we have to sit outside in the sweltering heat next to a table with two guys smoking cigars.

    1. $32 shrimp enchilada with NO sides… one tortilla with dry 2 pieces of shrimp 2. Wait over 30 minutes for your over $600 check because the waiter disappears (recurring theme)… not to mention no itemized receipt for a not split tab. 3. Out of half the menu 4. $50 cake cut fee… fine but lol to add to the disgrace 5. Hostess is so unwelcoming… just not classy… rude 6. I feel bad for the manager… he tried. His staff, failed him There are amazing restaurants to celebrate birthdays at… and there are ones that I don’t know how they stay in business… go elsewhere.

    Unfortunately we had an unfavorable experience - service was poor and slow and for the price point we expected better service. The noise level from the live music was unbearably loud it was so loud we habit to yell at each other when speaking across the table.

    The reason I'm rating this poor is because the experience ruined our Mother's Day plans. We were excited to go to Bisou because we've eaten there before and the place is cool. However, they changed their menu for Mother's Day to a very restrictive list. Didn't put that information anywhere, and did not make it visible on their site. So restrictive, that my vegetarian wife had no option in the first or second course. When we inquired about what she could do, we were told that we couldn't go off of the set menu. They asked my wife "what did you have in mind?". My wife said "the normal vegetarian menu options"...and they said, they could not support. We then left to go find food she could eat, but being Mother's Day, you can imagine the wait at every place in the area. I thought the situation could have been handled much better. Usually if a place changes their menu for an event, they let you know. Usually if a place doesn't have a vegetarian option, they make an exception. This place obviously didn't care. I'm sure Bisou is still cool, but just a heads up if you have restrictions and you're going there for a special occasion. They clearly don't care about your restrictions.

    The atmosphere at Bisou was good, very hip! The service was ok, not over the top good. They were out of several drinks we tried to order, though they did accommodate with alternatives. We all felt our dishes were a bit on the salty side, and for the costs, the food was not as amazing as we had hoped. The highlight was the presentation of the Ferris wheel of cupcakes, though the cupcakes were a bit dry.

    Food and service was really great and would definitely recommend- just do not expect a romantic evening because this is borderline a Club more so than a restaurant as the music is pretty loud. So, knowing this going into it, it’s a young fun atmosphere so if that is not for you, I would go someplace else.

    This restaurant was not what I was expecting. It was really loud and had a club vibe. The food was fantastic, though. Our server was good, but she was really busy with a large party. We were seated at a very tiny high top table in the bar area and I would have preferred to be at a regular table in the dining room. With the right group of people, this would probably be a really fun experience, but it wasn’t exactly what I was picturing for my husband’s birthday dinner. Overall, food was great, but I don’t think we will be back.

    The food was really tasty however a few dishes had small portions but the cost was expensive( shrimp and grits, short ribs and grits, and the steak and lobster dish) The ambiance was lively as well as our waiter. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and experienced.

    The food was barely passable, just really mediocre. Had inedible steak and eggs. I had made a reservation a week ahead of time, but they tried to seat my party of six at a four top, and then at a bizarrely laid out booth. Music was achingly loud and we we asked if it could be turned down, we were told flatly no. Our waitress did well, but most of the waitstaff was dressed for walking the street, not waiting table at brunch. Will not be back, will not recommend.

    Service was slow and the restaurant wasn’t crowded, there is no dress code for such an expensive place or if there is it isn’t enforced. The food was overpriced for the quality of our dishes although I will compliment the fish ceviche it was very fresh. I had French toast and it was burnt, the salmon omelette was very plain tasting

    Anthony was our waiter and he never steered us wrong. Everything from the drinks to the food suggestions were on point. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. As it got later the ambiance changed into a lounge-like vibe but not so over the top to where it felt like a club.

    We waited 20-minutes to get service at our table and no one came so I had to flag someone down. The waitress was good, but the drink I ordered had a fly in it (it was small, but still a fly) and the lamb was tasteless. Bisou has a great ambiance, but they need to work on their execution.
