Just Wow!

Every time I have eaten here the food has been fantastic! It is a little pricy by Decatur standards...but not out of line with other restaurants of this calibre.

This restaurant offers a quiet relaxing atmosphere and an eclectic decor. The menu is varied from med range to expensive for the area. Your table provides a view of the chefs at work as well as the high pressed tin ceiling and the old original cast iron columns of this vintage building. Large canvases by local artists grace the walls... More

We have gone twice on Tuesdays where they have a small plate menu and ordered 4 to 6 small plates both times. They were all wondrful. It was a great way to sample a variety of tasty food.

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

I will say, my date had the Delmonico steak and it tasted fantastic. The service is mediocre at best. Tries to be... More
