Good menu with plenty of choices and very reasonably priced. You can bring your own wine and a minimal corkage fee. The food was extremely tasty and the service was great.

To lessen the blow to your wallet, go here for DineLA. Since its been around for ages, it isn't as busy as other DineLA restaurants. The lobster bisque is delightful and buttery...perfect with a buttery Chardonnay. Speaking of wine, they have a very reasonable corkage policy!

This is a five star establishment at reasonable prices! The waiters are very efficient. I found the food to be priced way more reasonably than what one would expect at these prices ! If the tablecloths were linen no paper you might think you were at a Parisian five star establishment

Cafe Bizou serves great food, large portions and provides good service. Bring your own wine as corkage is only $2 per bottle.

Like many folks I've been going to Cafe Bizou for years and have always loved it, that is until today. The short version is that the brunch menu was uninspiring and overpriced for the portion sizes and the service negligent. Although I may return for dinner, I will never again go for brunch. Some additional details: ~ We were not... More

Cafe Bizou has been a Ventura Blvd staple for years and year. It's excellent food at great prices AND the best thing of all they encourage you to bring your own Wine with a $2 corkage fee. The nightly specials are excellent and the wait staff has been the same for many years. Philip the owner is always there to... More

I'm in complete agreement with the other reviewers who praise the food and easy parking for this restaurant. But can we talk about the decor? Dim lighting from mismatched light fixtures circa 1989, water stains on the ceiling, outdated furniture and an utter lack of charm will significantly detract from your dining experience. I've been coming here for six or... More

Their entrecote steaks are really superb. i have made it about half way through the menu over the last 10 years of going here and not one dish was unpleasing. Decent wine list, great house wines. and excellent coffee /... More

Have never been disappointed with Cafe Bizou. Love the SweetBreads. Love the selection, but sometimes hard to choose. Lamb is always wonderful. Wish it was closer to home.
