Bizou is a great place for lunch, a happy hour drink at the bar, or nice dinner out with friends. They have a menu that changes seasonally, so there is always something new to try.

Never felt as judged as I did the time I took my family there for dinner. The food is upscale and high end with prices to match. Not impressed and didn't like the vibe or the judgment.

I have eaten at many of the downtown restaurants in Decatur, and the filet steak is as good as any of them. It was cooked right, a great rub or spice on it, and the sauce was good. The potatoes matched up well. The menu is actually pretty broad with food for most tastes. All 5 of us had different... More

We were frequent lunch patrons as well as evening occasionally. We loved the items provided by the previous owner and chefs well prepared wraps, salads and beef selectons along with interesting sandwiches. These no longer are offered and we do not care for the limited offerings. Wait staff is excellent! Dinner is average.

Nice friendly service. Decent food. Good environment. I had tuna which was very good, however I have not enjoyed the side very much. My friend had scallops , which he liked.

Food was excellent, I had osso buco and my wife had medallions. We both thought our dinners were good and we had enough for dinner the next night. I thought the quality might be better than their competition..

The Resturant is one large open room in a quaint old building, it was very noisy, but the staff and service were excellent. The food was fairly good. Very meat and seafood heavy. Being a vegetarian I appreciated the vegan options. I had a spanakopita that was fair and oddly served on a bed of tomato sauce with wild rice.

Great - truly chef prepared and it shows. Much better with the new owner. Dishes are ample for the price. One negative was that the staff seemed preoccupied to take time at our table. They just sort of sweeped by in their attempt to serve us. Hopefully that was just being NEW to the business.

We have been going to the Bizou for years but the experience we had last Saturday was by far the best. I had invited another couple from out of town to join us. We brought in a couple of bottles of special wine we got for the occasion. One was a bubbly so Dana brought frosted flutes. She asked if... More

Wanted this to be great but it was only average. Warm welcome but had to ask for menus. Menu had interesting possibilities, lots of variety. Service was mixed, nothing special. Three of same house salad but each was different. One was drowning in the vinaigrette dressing maling that salad inedible. However no one came by so we could ask for... More
