We came on a Monday night for a late dinner. We had just gotten back from a camping trip and were craving a good steak. This was one of the few places open late so we decided to give it a shot. I had their filet medallions, they were so tender and flavorful. My boyfriend got the ribeye streak which was a special for that day I believe and he enjoyed it as well. The place was quiet, probably because it was around 11pm on a Monday night but it was nice. There is a chill ambience to the place even if in passing it looks super fancy. I would definitely recommend this place.

Menu had good variety. Good flavors and arrived to table hot, which I appreciate. Generous portions but not too big. Outside eating space was just ok, should be neater and more interesting.

After a Cubs game we were looking for a nearby River North restaurant with a variety of offerings including vegetarian friendly that wasn't outrageously expensive. Bijan's filled the bill nicely. The food was very good, and the service excellent. We sat at an outdoor table on a pleasant evening. All in all it was perfect.

We always eat at Bijan’s whenever in Chicago. The service is great, but the menu options are practically endless and the hours accommodate theatre devotees. Always the perfect traditional French bistro. Love Bijan’s.

The restaurant was completely empty when we arrived at 12:15. (Made a reservation seem silly.) That being said the service was great and so was the food.
We had brunch food and salads. Very delicious. And we were also treated to a piece of cake to celebrate a birthday. We chose Bijan’s because it was a convenient location
for us. We would definitely recommend it.

Food was good. Service left a lot to be desired. I never received my complete order and it was obvious that the waitress was unaware that she did not get our order correct.

Great atmosphere! The folks working there were lovely...just very nice and accommodating. I wish they had more vegetarian options, and there were no vegan options to speak of so maybe they will add something to their menu. :)

Service was prompt and friendly. The rigatoni and sausage is always a favorite. French onion soup is delicious as well. This is a good place for everyday dining as well as dates, not too loud or too large.

We each had lobster tails one had to be sent back as spoiled. We had gone a couple of days earlier and was charged $3 less for a vodka drink. When asked about it they had said they charge for ice. Asked to speak to a Manager and he had no further explanation and in fact walked away. They did subtract the ice cost.....but no apologies nothing.

Perfect for a group of diverse ages and food preferences! We had 9 people ranging in age from 13 to 77. Two people were eating gluten- and dairy-free. We got a lot of items across the menu (guacamole, steak salad, caesar salad, beef medallions, chicken, french onion soup, and others) and aside from the chicken quesadilla (was OK but not great) everyone was really happy with their meal. Great service. We could hear each other talk so were able to have a great conversation.

Coffee and Cappucino were superb. Got a waffle for the table as an appetizer that was crisp and delicious. My vegetarian omelet was good and the server was friendly. Out of town guests appreciated the comfort food, not too fancy but high quality. I've only been late night when its a little crazy. Going at 10:30am was pleasant....lol.
