Cafe Bizou occupies a storefront space on Ventura Boulevard, near the intersection with Costello Avenue. Parking can be tricky here, so many patrons go with the valet service, though others choose to find a meter or procure free parking on a side-street. Inside, Bamboo is a casually elegant restaurant that's both upscale and welcoming. The tables sport white tablecloths, but the menu offers exceptional value, given the nicely appointed surroundings. The lunch menu offers a wide variety of salads, pastas, sandwiches and meat and fish entrees. For dinner, it's much the same, with the addition of some higher-end evening entrees and a three-course, prix fixed menu option.
