I understand why so popular

It has been a long time since we were here. I am very glad were returned. The house salad, dressing was delicious. Adding it to my main course was only $1.00. I had two. My main dish was the rack of lamb. I asked for medium rare. It came perfect medium rare. The wine reduction sauce was wonderful... read more

The title really says it all. I don't know why I'm so blase about this place. I think maybe because of some of the local hype. "Oh, you have to go there." The room is really great, but that's really all about the lighting, because the chairs you're sitting on are the same ones I had in college from Target.... More

I think I've had all of their fish dishes now, and all have been outstanding. My perfect experience is to start the Lobster Bisque, have the Sesame Coated Salmon, and then finish with the Creme Brulee (best creme brulee I've ever had).

Had dinner a few nights ago and I am so sorry that I don't go back more often. Wonderful ambiance, wonderful food, professional and courteous wait staff, wonderful Martini's, and prices are very fair. Location is great and even though there is street parking, I love they offer Valet as space does become premium in that area. i highly recommend... More

We had a great time.....perhaps not somewhere we would go on our own but an excellent choice with firends. They have a bring your own bottle policy if you want and the food whilst not outstanding is perfectly competent. Don't go out of your way but go if you are nearby

We've been meaning to get to Cafe Bizou for years, and finally made it. $2 corkage fee, well-priced menu items, delightful service (Ilya was charming and fun), and delicious food made for a truly memorable evening. Their own wine list pretty pedestrian, but with such a low corkage fee, you can bring your own bottles and have a wonderful meal.... More

It was nice to sit in a peaceful restaurant and be cared for by a friendly, fun, knowledgable waitress. Her recommendations were honest and accurate. From various salmon dishes to lamb, to pasta, everyone enjoyed their meals. Five of us shared two amazing desserts -- the perfect amount of sweetness. This is a nice place to eat if you are... More

Cafe Bijou is one of those reliable places. The food is always good, the atmosphere is comfortable and the price is right. You can get away with dinner for two for under $50 and that probably includes a drink. This place is quiet enough for business, romantic enough for a date and lively enough so that you don't feel old.... More

100's of reviews so I do not have a lot to add- very busy all the time, except 6 pm - Prices are very reasonable $40 per person with corkage ( Wow $2.00 corkage but wine glasses are luncheon counter quality, thick and not elegant ). Everything looks great on the menu and the meat is choice cut and served... More

We have dined the Cafe Bijou for years. Each time we visit we're assured of a reliably good dining experience. Each of the four of us was happy with his or her selection(s) from appetiser to dessert. I usually rate the Martini craft too. Not for ingrediant but for mixology. Theirs is Good, but not at James Bond level!
