Cafe Bizou has to be one of my favorite restaurants in Pasadena. The food is always fresh and delicious and consistent. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive. I have gone here many years for NYE along with family and friends for dinner and lunch. The decor is casual yet elegant enough for special occasions. We ordered the black pasta tagllioni with lobster, which was delicious with huge chunks of lobster, dollar salad, yes, dollar salad, we brought in our own champagne for a small corkage fee ($3), If you stop in for lunch you can most likely find a table. Make a reservation for dinner or there will be a wait. Try coming in for the Dine LA week to try a variety of different food for a great deal. Enjoy!

We had a very very nice dinner -- even during a busy evening, the service was prompt and courteous. Amongst entrees the black tagallini pasta with seafood topping was the best, while the cedar plank salmon good but not particularly outstanding.

Beautiful very old style Parisian café right in Old Town. Wanted to go to dinner one night, but friends had already booked brunch for Father's Day so we did that instead. Service was fantastic, friendly and prompt. Only complaint was my omelet wasn't quite what I from the menu description. Nonetheless, if I lived near this restaurant, I would definitely be a regular.

When Cafe Bizou in Sherman Oaks, one of our favorite restaurants, did not have a reservation at the time we wanted to eat, we decided to try their Pasadena restaurant. Larger facility, bright and airy. Consistently attentive and top service. Food was absolutely wonderful. Price fixe menu that was underpriced, if anything, Most entrees, with soup or salad added, for under $25.00. Great value, great food. Their Sunday brunch is also a great occasion.
