    It was terrible. The restaurant wouldn’t honor the reservation. The rude hostess claimed they were overbooked and that it “wasn’t our fault”, but made a comment about us making the reservation in the same day. Well, why did you accept the reservation then? We were told that we could walk around and try and find a spot at the crowded bar or outside on the patio. There were a couple tables available in the restaurant and when we inquired about them a waitress told us that we’d have to buy a several hundred dollar bottle of alcohol in order to be seated there. The music was a bit too loud to have a nice meal anyways. We were dropped off by an Uber, which ended up being a waste thanks to the restaurant not honoring the reservation or at least contacting us to let us know before we made the trip. We ended up going down the street to Joey’s Uptown, which was our original choice to begin with and received excellent service. It has a fun upbeat vibe with a beautiful ambiance, but the music isn’t blaring like a dance club.

    It was OK, even with this App all the inside tables were reserved so really my reservation through this app served no purpose. I was told I could sit outside or at the bar. Well it’s Texas and the summer and the bar was full, when I asked “what about all those tables” and pointed to the 7-8 open tables I was able to be sat but told I had a strict time window that I would have to leave due to tables being reserved for later. The music was very loud and it was hard to have a conversation, the food was OK but nothing amazing. Overall I don’t think it’s a place to really go back to. There was Nothing amazing that would draw me back.

    My waitress a tall guy was great. However the lady that was behind the bar carrying out jugs of juice was very rude to me when I walked in at 10:02am on Sunday, Sept 4th. I soon realized it was bc she wanted to be able to sit and eat her own food at the bar and did not want to service me. I then made a 10:30 reservation and had to wait outside until 10:30 to be seated

    Bisou has a nice atmosphere and vibe for outings with friends. The food is flavorful and tasty. I usually make reservations when I come here, and they have always been same day. I made a same day reservation yesterday and the hostess made a big deal about honoring the reservation. The were several vacant tables open and she would not seat us, for over an hour we were waiting until we asked her multiple times about being seated at an open table. Once we were seated over an hour later, she said that we would have a seating limit of 1.5 hours from the time the original reservation was set. The reservation was at 7:30pm and we weren't seated until 8:50pm; based on this policy they wanted to leave the table by 9:00pm, very ridiculous. After we were seated, no one bothered us about getting up; however the whole interaction with the hostess left a very bad taste in my mouth. If this establishment doesn't want to do same day reservations that is perfectly fine; however, remove that option from OpenTable.

    Our reservations were for 6:30pm. We walked In, it was quiet and beautiful. But at 7pm, they dimmed lights significantly, turned on blaring disco music and there were red, green & blue lights on the windows, windows walls, and behind us. Then at 8, the dining lights were dimmed so dark I had to use a flashlight to look at bill. I typically am not great about reviewing my bill but it seemed really expensive for what we ordered. Low and behold they had added a 20% tip to our tab for a party of two. Is this even legal in Texas? It was my understanding that restaurants reserved the right to add gratuity to parties of 8 or more at 18% (the most they could add). It was very unfortunate for the server who hah done a fabulous job. I’m great about tipping a server as much as 28-30% if they go above and beyond. Which this young lady had done. I tried to speak with the manager when we were leaving, but was told he unavailable, so I told the snotty hostess that I’d take care of it in my review. The food was phenomenal but beware and go at 5 or lunch if they serve it because the night club feel after 7 was down right horrific. We were there for a romantic evening out to celebrate my birthday. We will NEVER go back.

    The service was good. The food was okay. I probably won’t go back unless it’s for drinks later at night. Doesn’t give off a dinner place vibe. More of a clubbing vibe.

    The worst experience for an upscale environment. Although we had a reservation, we were not able to be seated until 40 minutes later and then tried to sit us outside in the rain. To top it off, the AC in the restaurant was not working to which they had to have 2 blow fans at the door. Poor customer service along with poor environment.

    My suggestion is to make sure that your hosts welcome guest with a friendly attitude and a sense of urgency to help. I walked in and was not greeted, and then was asked had I been helped minutes later. The young lady took my name and I thought she was searching for my reservation to check us in, but she didn’t. She blew me off. Another young lady asked me for my name and checked us in. Poor customer service. It set the tone for the night. Also, our waiter changed. Not sure why. It was my birthday, and this place did not make me feel as such.

    The time restrictions are not stated upfront when we booked. It is rude that you get several people coming to your table telling you that you will be kicked out at 2 hours and on top of very slow service. Our waiter was GREAT but he has too many tables to serve and it is impossible to respond to all. I don't believe we will return.

    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.
