We've dined at Café Bizou frequently. This time this was due to Dine LA. We had French Onion soup and Escargot for our appetizer. The escargot was surprisingly good. My wife had the seafood squid ink pasta which was good. I ordered the Trio Meat. The filet mignon was quite tender and short ribs tasted good too. My friends tasted... More

Fixed priced menu ($32.) had very good selection and was delicious. Entree had lamb chops, beef fillet, short ribs, and vegetables. Well worth going back. Service was terrific. Never had to ask for anything except the check.

i enjoyed dinner with friends at Cafe Bizou for the first time last Sunday evening. We were seated immediately and offered beverages promptly. Our party found that many of the entrees on the menu sounded tempting and we took a while to make up our minds, but the waiter sensed when we were ready to order without hovering. Our food... More

Nice menu selection is always a good start to a pleasant evening out. Bijou gives a nice variety from haute French to some middle-of-the-road fare for which you don't have to be an astronomical gastronomer to enjoy. I had a Seabass which was wonderfully prepared in a delicious wine sauce which added to the experience. The staff was friendly and... More

Cafe Bizou is a favorite for celebrations. The fare is consistent along with the ambiance and the staff's attentiveness and attention to detail. We always have a wonderful experience.

A group of us had dinner here and were disappointed. The service is timely, the menu broad but the food was bland and without flavor. Many of us had ordered the fixe prix special including an appetizer, main dish and a dessert. I love escargot and have eaten them in so many French restaurants but the preparation here was completely... More

Cafe Bizou is an energetic restaurant with a traditional decor that is a great place for a meal when in Pasadena. Quaint, yet large and vibrant. The interior could use some renovations but service is good and the food is fair. Not all the dishes are consistent but the food isn't bad. On this particular occasion, the Chinese Chicken Salad...
