    Everything was great except my waitress was a tad slow. I asked for the check and she didn’t come back until 20 mins later. It was busy Sunday but not crazy packed. Overall my niece enjoyed her first fancy brunch

    I took my wife out to dinner to celebrate a big promotion she received from work. There was a group of 8 sitting a little way away from our table. They were celebrating a 40th birthday very loudly. To the point that a couple sitting opposite of us trying to enjoy a rare date night out together decided to cancel their dinner plans, and leave before ordering dinner. Before leaving they mentioned to us, they were hoping for a less than exuberant environment for their time out. The group eventually settled down a little bit, but was the talk of other tables around us

    We were told upon arrival exactly how long we had the table and when we needed to be done. We were a party 6 and spent $1000. and still had the hostess hovering. Service, while friendly, was hit and miss. Also, beware, a party of 6 gets automatic gratuity.

    Always wanted to try Bisou. Went today for lunch. We arrived at 1:00 and were promptly seated. The first thing our waiter said was only brunch items were being served. Ok. Guess we were having brunch. I should have checked before making a reservation at this time. I ordered bbq short ribs with cheese grits. This dish was good. My wife ordered chicken and waffles. She was served a waffle and chicken tenders. She said the dish was good but nothing special. Just plain chicken tenders? I just expected more based on the reviews. The service was really great.

    Wonderful experience. The only drawback is the cost for something as small as a cheese plate is too much. Bottles of wine are really marked up. They should feature 50 bottles given the fact the bottles they offer cost barely $50 to begin. with. Still good service and great ambiance. You’re paying for the music, the scene and the lights.

    Love this place and the atmosphere it provides. My only complaint is the ONE toilet for an establishment this size is unbelievable. The men’s restroom only has one sit down toilet. That’s absurd and not customer friendly. Otherwise this is one of my favorite places to dine. Use the toilet before you come LOL

    My food was overpriced, not fully cooked, and had many shells in it. I had to keep asking for a refill on my drink and I was overcharged for my food. The music was so loud I couldn’t have a conversation with my husband. Overall terrible experience

    First we arrived with 4/5 of our party , first hostess said we couldn’t be seated then someone else came around and said they could seat us. I told my 5th guest the reservation was under my name when she got there they told her there wasn’t a reservation under my name. There were 3 other tables in the restaurant during majority of our dinner. The service was terrible. It was my birthday and I got a condescending reply in return. He was quick to leave and disappear, gave no menu suggestions, didn’t give us his name. I ordered a raspberry lemon drop it came out tasting like straight lime juice. I gave it back to the busser and the server came and said “what’s wrong with it?” And when brought back and it tasted the same. My salmon pasta came out and the noodles weren’t cooked all the way. Then our entrees were picked up and we waited 20/25 mins for desserts to drop when they were ordered prior to entrees being picked up. Then the bill had to be asked for 3 times. We then asked a manager he said he would be back but never did. Then it took 20 mins for the server to even come back. Should have left when my friend asked 15 mins in if we should just go somewhere else.

    The food wasn’t bad but it’s definitely a party atmosphere which was not what we were looking for. You are practically yelling at each other. I’m sure they cater to a crowd that enjoys the very loud music and overpriced cocktails. It just not us.

    I did not have a good experience at bisou last night. Our waitress never asked us if we would like anything to drink. She just brought us water and tended to her other two tables. When she finally came to us she asked us what would we like to eat she still didn’t ask us if we wanted drinks had to tell her then we ordered our entrees. My friend ordered the red fish with crab meat. Her food smell so fishy and tasted horrible. The fish wasn’t fresh at all and smelled really bad. The waitress never even came back and asked how our food was. After we ate the waitress didn’t offer desert she just asked would we like the check. It just felt like she wanted us out of there we felt rushed the whole time. I watched how nice and upbeat she was to the couple that got sat next to us so it was weird when she got to us she was very dry and not attentive. Terrible service and the food was not fresh my friend barely touched it and the waitress saw that and didn’t even ask if everything was ok.

    Music volume started off at a good level then for some reason they decided to blow your ear drums. Literally yelling across the table to talk. Should have just texted each other. $50 Filet, ordered medium came out darn near well done. You’re paying for the ambiance not the food.

    When I have a confirmed reservation, I do not expect to be told there are not any tables available inside, and that we have to sit outside in the sweltering heat next to a table with two guys smoking cigars.

    1. $32 shrimp enchilada with NO sides… one tortilla with dry 2 pieces of shrimp 2. Wait over 30 minutes for your over $600 check because the waiter disappears (recurring theme)… not to mention no itemized receipt for a not split tab. 3. Out of half the menu 4. $50 cake cut fee… fine but lol to add to the disgrace 5. Hostess is so unwelcoming… just not classy… rude 6. I feel bad for the manager… he tried. His staff, failed him There are amazing restaurants to celebrate birthdays at… and there are ones that I don’t know how they stay in business… go elsewhere.

    Unfortunately we had an unfavorable experience - service was poor and slow and for the price point we expected better service. The noise level from the live music was unbearably loud it was so loud we habit to yell at each other when speaking across the table.

    The reason I'm rating this poor is because the experience ruined our Mother's Day plans. We were excited to go to Bisou because we've eaten there before and the place is cool. However, they changed their menu for Mother's Day to a very restrictive list. Didn't put that information anywhere, and did not make it visible on their site. So restrictive, that my vegetarian wife had no option in the first or second course. When we inquired about what she could do, we were told that we couldn't go off of the set menu. They asked my wife "what did you have in mind?". My wife said "the normal vegetarian menu options"...and they said, they could not support. We then left to go find food she could eat, but being Mother's Day, you can imagine the wait at every place in the area. I thought the situation could have been handled much better. Usually if a place changes their menu for an event, they let you know. Usually if a place doesn't have a vegetarian option, they make an exception. This place obviously didn't care. I'm sure Bisou is still cool, but just a heads up if you have restrictions and you're going there for a special occasion. They clearly don't care about your restrictions.

    The atmosphere at Bisou was good, very hip! The service was ok, not over the top good. They were out of several drinks we tried to order, though they did accommodate with alternatives. We all felt our dishes were a bit on the salty side, and for the costs, the food was not as amazing as we had hoped. The highlight was the presentation of the Ferris wheel of cupcakes, though the cupcakes were a bit dry.
