Stay away from this place. There is no management on duty, only employees that seem to do what ever they choose. Bartenders are rude in that they seem to cater to just locals, not new customers. Service in food area was ridiculous, young tatted up young lady with a bad attitude. I'm using her tattoos as reference since I did... More

This was an odd dining experience for me. First time at Bijou and it struck me as a place that wasn't sure what it wanted to be. I couldn't tell if it wanted to be a sports bar or an upscale dining spot. As a dining destination, it definitely misses. I ordered the short ribs. Although tasty, it was definitely... More

I've been to happy hour and have had dinner here. I prefer the happy hour. The dinner faire was fair but their happy hour in the bar/lounge is fun. The lounge decor fun, a bit retro chic. They have a TV that was set on an important game last time but it does not at all feel like a sports... More

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.

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.
