“Oui!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

A group of 13 of us dined here on a Thursday night last week. The atmosphere is definitely more dressy casual. As in, ladies, please refrain from jeans and sneakers here or you will look out of place. The black pasta with lobster, shrimp and scallops in tomato cream lobster sauce was amazing, I wanted to lick the plate clean. Lentil soup was very flavorful. On to dessert. Oh my gosh, the bread pudding, which I normally dislike, was heaven on a plate. Like a very flavorful, rich French toast. Creme brûlée also outstanding. Just thinking about those desserts is making me salivate. As for drinks, the lemon martini quite satisfying, as well as the pomegranate mojito, very good. Not too strong.

“Wee wee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Not too many French restaurants in the area and I'm glad there's one on sushi row.

I ordered the Macadamia Nut Crusted Alaskan Salmon and it was amazing! Definitely a dish I'd love to try again.

I wanted to come here because I've heard from my friends that it's a nice romantic spot to go to. The crowd here is more for the older people, not younger people like I thought. Even with that, the food is still great and the ambiance is awesome.

“Still good, but needs a facelift”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We have been to the Pasadena Bizou many times, but the last few times it has become apparent that it needs a cosmetic lift. The food is always very good and of course the low corkage cannot be beat. We've never had a bad experience with Cafe Bizou.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Food was good, prices good however if you have to wait it is too crowded. Not much place to stand. I would say it is a fire hazzard.
