Enjoyed the quick meal. Suprised by the heavy emphasis on hamburgers. Service was good. Food was tasty. The constant loud sound of the ventilation fan was off-putting.

Since we were staying at Le Meridien, we figured we should eat in-house at Bizou Brasserie at least once before we left. We ordered a smorgasbord of food! We certainly had high expectations, but must say our brunch experience was quite underwhelming. Overall, the food...More

I enjoy places that are a little different. This hotel and restaurant is located in an old Federal Court House Building. The building had a lot of character and class and like the fact that we were reusing a good facility rather than tearing it...More
