Delicious food and great service

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... read 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!

I was in LA with some family during an extended week-end last March. I selected Cafe Bizou after seeing good reviews on this site and I was not disappointed. The restaurant was full even though it was Thursday night. The food was very good. The only two points I'd bring are that we had to order our wine twice (we... More

J. and I haven't been here for years so it was fine for a Wednesday dinner on the way to LAX for J.'s red-eye to Boston. We parked nearby and was surprised to see both how busy it was and that a majority of its clientele were on the senior side. A shared appetiser of popcorn shrimp (called a "table... More

Lovely ambiance which is just as well since the service tends to be slow so expect a long leisurely dinner experience. The food is very good but a bit expensive. all in all a worthwhile dinning experience.

Cafe' Bizou has been around for years and is still going strong. Food is consistently good, service is spot on and if your a wine drinker like me, a $2 Corkage to encourage you to bring your own wine is a nice treat. Recommended, but make a reservation
