Good French restaurant/bar.

Good French restaurant/bar located at the very heart of Hayward (CA) CBD. Lots of free but in-demand parking in the area.

This place is very classy and elegant. It's smack in the middle of downtown on B street, convenient for dinner after the movies. The cinema is right up the street and there is plenty of free parking in the Public garage. The food is wonderful and is served with a French flair. The atmosphere is quiet and calm in the... More

I've been to Bijou twice, once with a Groupon and once without. I was hesitant to go the second time because the first time wasn't a good experience but was dating a guy who really wanted to try it. Unfortunately, it was also disappointing the second time. The first time I ate there, the waiter brought two incorrect dishes. He... More

Met an old buddy who is a beer brewer at the Bistro. I was not expecting him to choose this location. The selection was adequate and they had good beer available, but not an unusually large selection per se. The prices on the food were a little higher than the standard fare for Hayward... But boy was I surprised. The... More

Came here for an early dinner and decided to sit at the bar since we arrived a little bit before the restaurant opened. Our bartender was great! He was doing a bunch of bar tricks, engaging with everyone at the bar, and overall very pleasant. He was prompt, drinks were good, and we enjoyed the service very much. We ordered... More

I haven't been dine there for quite sometime. It was very disappointing with my couple of dining experience there. The portion of food was too small like an appetizer for an entree. The second visit was terribly shocking with a soup served in a tiny glass as if it was a after dinner drink. Let's face it, Hayward doesn't have... More

Used a coupon for my first time visit. Putting the cart before the horse I decided to see the local reviews and was immediately left with an uneasy felling. Quite a few bad reviews especially when using a coupon. Well, with my family in tow we sat down and experience a very nice meal in a quite lively atmosphere. Our... More

The food at Bijou is excellent. The servings are generous and the seasonings are tasty. The Chilean Sea Bass dish was especially good. Great location in Hayward.
