A large variety of delicious French food, at very modest prices, with a $2 corkage fee! You will surely enjoy a meal there!

We visited on a Friday evening. We made a reservation only a little earlier in the day. We chose this restaurant based on our excellent experience with the sister restaurant in Studio City. We were not disappointed. The filet mignon au poivre was very good. The seared Ahi Tuna was a little stringy but tasty enough. The Burgundy we selected... More

As a couple we had a meal from the set lunchtime menu: the seared salmon was excellent. Well-presented on a wooden platter. Although the restaurant was busy we were found a booth without a reservation, and the staff were prompt with service and pleasant. 15 dollars for a great lunch. Heartily recommend this restaurant.

Cafe Bizou has to be one of my favorite restaurants in Pasadena. The food is always fresh and delicious and consistent. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive. I have gone here many years for NYE along with family and friends for dinner and lunch. The decor is casual yet elegant enough for special occasions. We ordered the black... More

We had a very very nice dinner -- even during a busy evening, the service was prompt and courteous. Amongst entrees the black tagallini pasta with seafood topping was the best, while the cedar plank salmon good but not particularly outstanding.

Beautiful very old style Parisian café right in Old Town. Wanted to go to dinner one night, but friends had already booked brunch for Father's Day so we did that instead. Service was fantastic, friendly and prompt. Only complaint was my omelet wasn't quite what I from the menu description. Nonetheless, if I lived near this restaurant, I would definitely... More

When Cafe Bizou in Sherman Oaks, one of our favorite restaurants, did not have a reservation at the time we wanted to eat, we decided to try their Pasadena restaurant. Larger facility, bright and airy. Consistently attentive and top service. Food was absolutely wonderful. Price fixe menu that was underpriced, if anything, Most entrees, with soup or salad added, for... More

Out with friends and looking for a different restaurant, we happened to stop by this cafe. At first we thought the place was closing as it was between lunch and dinner menus. However, the manager encouraged us to stay. We were so happy he did! The lobster fest was amazing! Everything from the lobster bisque to the flourless chocolate cake... More
