Had prix fixe menu and service that was great. Drink special was tasty and hit the spot. Been there twice and plan on going again. Used groupon for great value.

This place was horrible ! Went there on Sunday evening after watching movie,they were out of two items on their limited menu. My husband and I both ordered chicken that was tasteless served by disinterested staff. I will never return and wasted 60 bucks and felt nauseous that night and next morning ,my husband also reported he felt stomach upset.... More

I tried Bijou twice. It felt pretentious and out of place. Not really sure why or how they've managed to stay afloat with the menu and that late 90's modern atmosphere, but they have. The food was over priced and gross and the service was not what I would expect from a downtown Hayward establishment. We're typically blue collar, friendly... More

Sports bar atmosphere, but the food is top notch. Service is good; we ate early (6 PM). Nice menu selection and good drink choices.

This place is wonderful. The food is excellent. I have visited there at least 7 times in the last 3 months. I first found this restaurant on Groupon and I really love the food, atmosphere, staff are very friendly. This is more of an adult vibe.

I had a dinner at Bijou restaurant in 2014 and 2015, both with groupon voucher for 2. Dinner in 2014 was much better then one year after. Also noticed people around were on groupon as well, and probably with groupon discount price/quality is acceptable, otherwise I wouldn't recommend this place for dinner. One more point, when you have a dinner,... More

The service was great, but the food was average. We used to love Bijou, but it has consistently gone down hill. The menu has gotten smaller and the food was not that great. The drinks were good though. So if you are looking for a cocktail and appetizer, you should be good.

The Bijou is an active place, with a great bar. The entrees vary in quality, however. I ordered a prawn dish (served with the heads and tails still on!) that was not really up to par, but my husband enjoyed his entree very much. The tables tend to be rather close together, also.

We went for dinner with a Living Social voucher. Really weren't sure what to expect, sine there seemed to be many strongly positive reviews and many strongly negative ones. Our experience was perfectly positive. Both food and service were great. Nicoise Salad with Ahi Tuna was excellent. The Spanish Dip wasn't outstanding, but the arepas chips were great. Too bad...
