Ok, I only arrived in California a year ago, but had the opportunity to try quite a few French Restaurant. I went to Bisou with another couple of friends, the ambiance is friendly and the food is exactly what i was looking for: Foie Gras is really good, flavoured, melting in the mouth !!! The Mussels are sizable and tasty... More

Weekend brunch here is a party for the senses. Fun times. Bottomless campaign. Delicious French food. Have the Oeuf Cocotte (yummy and rich) or the Croque Monsieur. Crepes are also delicious.

A bit expensive, but a good place for a Sunday morning brunch -- particularly if you're looking for a healthy-feeling french toast. Service is only-OK, but staff try to be friendly making it forgivable.

We went there to celebrate my 30th bithday. We were looking for a nice cosy place, a bit fancy, with good food! All our wishes were pleased at Bisou. The food was fabulous. The service was great. We had a great time and ond of our best meal ever. Congrats to the chef ;)

We had the option of sitting downstairs next to the bar or upstairs. We chose downstairs as it had more atmosphere. The owner was very friendly and could advise about the food and wine on offer.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the place we were staying as a "date" place with really nice food. So we made a booking. The service was fantastic - that was a clear winner. But we were seated upstairs (which lacked atmosphere and the décor upstairs was unappealing) next to the wall, without any points of interest. Not really... More

I found it a bad place: food and cleaning have been understatement compared to the price I paid for my dinner; Staying there was uncomfortable, I quickly had my dinner and run away.

After a long day sightseeing around the City with some out-of-town friends, we spontaneously decided to grab dinner in the Castro. Of course, nearly everything was booked, but Open Table found an opening at Bisou so we decided to try it, knowing nothing about it. What a lovely surprise! The restaurant is small, but pretty, with simple, chic decor and... More

Had a great dinner for my birthday with my girl. Just came by in search for a restaurant. Real good main course (steak). When dessert comes with a small candel light. We also got each a glass of rosé champagne! Nice venue and nice people! Thanks!
