Family of six. 2 kids over 11 and four adults. Food was ok and service was good. Very small wine portions for the price. Fish was just ok, however the streaks were great. Price is high. Good meal!! Best thing is the hummus.

Weekend reservations are usually required. although it's a small menue the dishes are always prepared in big city style in their open kitchen. There are usually one or two specials but getr there early as regulars usually snap them up and the offerings could disappear before the... More

For a small town, Bizou has a big city feel and taste. The menu is diverse and the ingredients fresh. The chef is exceptional. The atmosphere is contemporary and fresh. A definite plus for Decatur.

We have been going to Bizou for several years and have never had a bad meal. Went there last night for my husbands birthday and had the best scallops, miso soup(the BEST) and roasted broccoli. The servers always make us feel welcomed as do the owners Mike and Megan and Ray the Chef. The Ahi Tuna is also wonderful and... More

We almost walked past the restaurant as there was no one eating inside at 12:30 on a weekday, but we decided to give it a try and are happy we... More

The prime rib was excellent as well as the green beans and au gratin potatoes that went with it. The house saled was good with walnuts, Granny Smith apple bites and a tangy apple cider vinaigrette dressing. By day the atmosphere may seem a bit cold due to the metal chairs, glass block and other elements in the eclectic decor,... More

My husband and I have dined at Bizou a couple of times on our own, and also once for a company dinner upstairs, and I once attended a baby shower there at lunchtime. The food was excellent, with attention given to every part of the meal. The soups are especially tasty, and everything was served in an appealing way and... More

This is about good as it is going to get in Decatur. Actually if you judge the place on food/value alone it probably can compete with big city joints...but it is lacking that something that pushes it to fine dining...building is odd...feels like it was a bank at some point...
