Eclectic restaurant with an interesting menu

I liked the decor and found the menu items both varied and tasty. Nothing fancy but well worth the visit.

Impeccable food, drinks, service, ambience - never fails with each visit always perfect. Being alone or with a large group, Bizou is the place to go. Bizou = Magnificent! A real asset for Decatur.

We dine here annually with college friends. Service for our group of 17 was slow because of slow kitchen prep. Our salads were delivered promptly and were fresh and delicious. My wife ordered grilled Halibut with grilled asparagus. The fish was dry and the asparagus was over grilled. I ordered the vegan stir fry and it too was over grilled.... More

Family has eaten at Bizou only a few times, and I doubt we will go back. got the Chilean Sea Bass, and it wasn't cooked properly.. yuck... ordered Grilled Swordfish steak and it was super bland and overcooked. I will say, my date had the Delmonico steak and it tasted fantastic. The service is mediocre at best. Tries to be... More

I love bizou! We were a table of six and had a great waitress (Katy) who was very attentive and made our nye dinner awesome! The steaks were cooked perfect, the turducken wad great and the bourbon maple glazed pork chop was delicious! My only "complaint" is lamb wasn't on the menu anymore. :)

Came up from Houston for a birthday event for a 91 year veteran. My two brothers and I always eat at Bizou's when we come back to Decatur because we think it's the best food, atmosphere and service in Decatur. We ate there both Friday and Saturday for dinner. Dana (Deuce) was our server. We had a blast. Try the... More

Don't pass up an opportunity to try this great restaurant. Excellent choices that change by season. Great tapas menu on Tuesday's. The chef is very creative and the food is excellent. If you are looking for an AYCE buffet, this is not the place for you. Civilized meals, great atmosphere with the open kitchen, very homey yet trendy. Great staff... More

Was in Decatur for a Class Reunion and while revisiting downtown decided to try Bizou for lunch. We liked it. Decor is simple but nice, service was excellent, prices were in line and food was good. Next time we're in Decatur I'm sure we'll stop in.
