“Great place for dinner”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

While we'd been to the Cafe Bizou in Sherman Oaks, CA before (Were very impressed) this was our 1st visit to the Pasadena location. It was just as great here. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and great food define this establishment. The portions are generous and as far as I'm concerned the prices were very reasonable for the food you get. I ordered the Chicken Balsamic which was cooked perfectly, seasoned right and had pearl onions, mashed potatoes and asparagus for $15.95 and could've fed two people. I knew right then and there how this establishment survived the recession. Whenever you're in the area of Old Town Pasadena, this restaurant is well worth a visit.

“terrific steak frites at Cafe Bizou”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

An extensive menu is offered at Cafe Bizou including numerous pastas, fish, meat and chicken dishes plus soups and salads. Also a number of pricing plans from two different prix fix plans, an entree plus soup or salad for $1-2 dollars more than the entree and a regular a la carte. The food is very good and interesting. My steak frites was excellent and I had 2 choices of steak size -- 6 oz or 8 oz. My partner had a fish dish with risotto and we both had the caesar salad for the additional $2.00. Our waiter was very accommodating. They also have Cafes in Sherman Oaks and Santa Monica. I am sure we will go back at one of the locations.

“Great ambience food and service”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

We had a fabulous dinner. Went for dinner and drinks with some girlfriends. It was crowded on a Sunday night but it didn't seem loud. It was cozy and comfortable yet elegant. Menu large and impressive, service quick and courteous. Food absolutely delicious. I had halibut-yum! Deserts were good too. maybe the best in Pasadena. Will be back soon.

“Great food / service”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

I have been going to Cafe Bizou for years now and every time, I always get prompt service, food quality is also excellent and I enjoy the more quieter ambiance. It is more American/French food and the menu has a variety of dinners that most anyone would like. Bring your own bottle of wine for a small cork fee and ENJOY!
