We had a lovely dinnet at this 'almost french' restaurant. I had the three courses fixed august menu availlable at 32$. I chose a delicious lobster bisque, the two different lobster tails and a very good chocolate cake. My family chose a different meal, one including pasta and one fish, and two different soups: everybody was happy. They have a... More

The special fixed price menu lives on until August 31, 2016. My Sweetie and I had the "Trio of Meats" from the list. We stated out, after our Martinis of course, with both Caesar Salad and French Onion Soup. We then had our delicious meats with some potato and veggies, and finished the evening up with the hot chocolate cake.... More

We had a late night dinner at Cafe Bizou. The restaurant was surprisingly empty compared to others on the block (which was fine for us). We shared appetizers of the berry salad, mussels & fries in white wine, and veal sweetbreads. All of the dishes were very good and it was more than enough food for us (appetizer portion size...

Visited Cafe Bizou twice while in Pasadena at the end of 2015. Food is tremendous and the staff is very attentive. One of my favorite dining experiences while in Pasadena.

The bartender served 3 walk ups before he directed his attention to my husband and I who waited about 15 minutes for service while seated at the bar. By then, our table was ready. The service in the dining room was fantastic. The restrooms were spotless. The ambience was eclectic. The 1920's theme was typical Los Angeles and I enjoyed... More

Locally famous for the freshest food prepared consistently well. Definitely a date night or special occasion venue with reasonable prices. Valet parking is very convenient in a good Old Town Pasadena location.

Dinner at Café Bizou in Pasadena is really good idea. Reservations are suggested no matter which night you choose. Our group of six had a very nice dinner on Friday night. I have been to both the Raymond St. and the Ventura Blvd. locations and it has been my experience that the food is always very good. The escargots and... More

I got the Grilled Herb Chicken Breast for lunch. Amazing! And and it was presented beautifully. Finding a place to park was a pain but I did notice valet but I assume to just drive until I found a spot. The food that I had was the best chocked ever, hands down. My server had a strong French accent and... More

Good food and good service for lunch and dinner. The regular menus is getting a little tires but they often offer interesting specials.

Came here after doing some shopping in Old Town. Always like coming here. We like the fact that all the dishes are under $20 and a good selection of fish. You can also get a dinner salad for a buck or two. I had the steak frites and my wife had the sandabs. Both were delicious. Finished with a tiramisu.... More
