The atmosphere at Bisou Bisou is all I would go for. It was nice to sit outside on a summer evening with the beautiful lighting. The food was fair at best. We ordered the summer salad, cauliflower and the meatballs, which were exceptionally dry. We had also ordered he shrimp, however it was never brought out. The waitress also brought our salad out after our meal. All-in-all, we weren't impressed with the food or (lack-of) service.

I love Bisou Bisou. I've always had delicious, really quality vegetables and proteins (the mussel boat is amazing). I also love the orange wine - a really unique taste.

A real treat -- the small plates were all delicious, interesting, and fresh. Warm atmosphere. Although not in my neighborhood, I will definitely return.

I liked the concept: portions to share (3 for 2 people is enough), good drinks selection, great atmosphere. The place checks all the boxes of a neighborhood hidden gem, will repeat for sure.

I loved all dishes, lentil pate was my favorite, reasonable prices and cozy atmosphere. My waitress was very pleasant. Do not forget to have desserts, I tried both options and they were delicious.

A relatively inexpensive place that seems to be a unique vision of it's owner and not following some cookie cutter formula for success. Wines are great, service is great and menu is interesting. Not every dish was a home run, but it's refreshing to see a kitchen do something different.

Bisou Bisou was quite surprise. From the outside it looks like it will be a noisy bar scene - and inside - the food is remarkable. Service was fine. This is a small farm to table place with excellent food. We had salmon which was done to perfection with a horseradish topping and our appetizers were terrific as well. Let's keep this place going - it is not on our usual map - but well worth going to and a short walk from BAM.

I love Bisou Bisou. The owner Michelle is awesome, down-to-earth and often present and interacting with customers. The food is delicious and seasonal. I haven't had a dish there that I didn't love. The desserts are also amazing. Highly recommended!

The atmosphere was so charming and cozy. I'd recommend this more for a date night than for group dining. The food was great, presentation wonderful and ambiance lovely. The manager was charming too!

My daughter just moved into the Fort Greene area and we found this lovely little restaurant right around the corner. Charming! Played interesting music! Our server, Kate, was wonderful and could not have been more professional. Very small place and nice warm vibe!
We had the polenta fries to share and they were yummy. The spagetti squash and mushroom entrees were wonderful!
We will be returning!

Highly recomend this place. Excellent food with wonderful service. The owner takes great pride in her food. If your allergic to the smell of seafood than I had to work you that they cook right behind the counter and it's an open kitchen with no dividers.

All the food here is excellent, and the dishes quite elaborate. The kitchen is very small, however; as long as you’re not in a hurry, this is a great meal and value.

My wife and I celebrated Valentine's Day at Bisou Bisou and everything was perfect. We recommend the Prosciutto Wrapped Dates, the Shrimp and Corn Chowder Pot Pie and the Hangar Steak Wellington. On the cocktail menu, there isn't a bad choice as we tried most of them.

Perfect for a dinner date.

This place is cozier than the photographs suggest. The service is almost too good. The food and wine are delicious. As we were finishing out meal, we were trying to figure out when we could return. I have already recommended it to everyone I know.

The restaurant was understaffed when we visited. The staff that was there were trying their hardest to take care of the guests. The food we had was absolutely delicious, as were the drinks. I plan to come back and give them another try based on the quality of the food.
