Bijou Restaurant & Bar

Bijou Restaurant & Bar, will provide the East Bay with a chic dining option. Bijou will showcase contemporary California cuisine, offered at reasonable prices.

Prepared by Executive Chef Rodrigo Cedeño using seasonal, fresh, often locally sourced ingredients. Chef Cedeño, a native of Hayward, graduated from the Cal Poly Pomona’s Collins College of Hospitality Management program, carried on at Vu Restaurant, where he gained insight and experience in modern cuisine and techniques in molecular gastronomy. Thereafter, he worked at RN74 in San Francisco. Here he developed a solid foundation of classical French techniques.

The direction of the menu is modern, something that will provide each guest with an “affordable palate”. We will achieve this by offering new & unique flavor profiles with each dish and creating a regularly changing, seasonal menu.

Bijou's bar specializes in craft cocktails.

"If you're looking for a great place to catch up with friends, Bijou is the spot! This restaurant is split into a bar area if you're casually hanging out with friends and a restaurant sit-down portion if you want a little more intimacy. They have great bites that foodies would dream of. The drinks were also on point. Service was as friendly as it can get. Bijou is a neighborhood gem - there are hardly any cool swanky spots like these in the Hayward, Union City, Fremont area... so thank goodness for Bijou! I will definitely be coming back :)"

"I had been to this restaurant a couple of times before at lunch time. I knew it was a loud place and relaxed atmosphere. If you plan on dining in the evening be prepared for loud bar scene. The bartender seemed to lead the pack with laughter and quite a few cuss words (maybe not good for children). The food is good (however the fish and potato wedges are frozen and quite strong fishy smell) but with the loud noise it is so distracting I did not enjoy my burger. The hostess and our waitress were nice, but I think they need to up their game on appearance. They both looked like they just came from a work out at the gym (at least they did not smell). Overall, just seems like another everyday restaurant in Hayward...I was hoping for a little nicer and more professional. I think I will stick to Bon Appetit on A St. Sorry...."

"They need to do some paintings or totally renovation. Tables and chairs are old and lots of scratches and stains. First impression in the restaurants should be nice and clean. The servers are so nice and had a right attitude towards the customers."

"I have been eating here since it opened, and I was very disappointed in the food on my last couple of visits. I used to love the frites, but no longer. It's hard to go wrong with fries, but they've managed to do it. The whole place could also benefit from a thorough cleaning- the windows and floors are particularly grimy. The cocktails are still good, though. I hope that this restaurant gets back on track."

"I thought I was coming to a very good trendy restaurant, brought my Chef son and his wife. On a Friday nite. Place was empty. The cold air showed that the windows had not been washed in quite some time and then it went downhill. The place was grimy. Attention to detail gone. We (4) were seated at a table with service for two...that was not repaired and eventually we had to ask for tableware. Food was barely warm and not seasoned, total lack of salt in the soup. main courses were not very good (servers did not return to ask how our food was). the only good thing about the night was a bottle of wine we picked and ordered. A big dissapointment. Owner was not present."

"If you are going to the theatre in downtown Hayward, the food is quite good with interesting choices. I had the pork loin which was done perfectly. It was noisy but it is a sports bar. It was cold that night and we did not take our coats off. I would go again, if I was in Hayward. I remember a cold night in Chicago twenty-five years ago. The heat was broken at Santorini, and we kept our overcoats on. We had the best grilled branzini ever."

"We had the stone fruit salad, tuna tartare, diver scallops, pork loin, bread pudding, and crema catalana. All were quite tasty -- some of the accompaniments, particularly the fried polenta cubes with the pork loin, and the potatoes with the scallops (which I think might've been sous-vided in a vacuum bag? they had a texture similar to compressed fruits) were especially good. The cocktails were excellent as well -- we had the Old Cuban (rum, mint, lime, chocolate and Angostura Bitters, champagne float) and the Silk Road (Hendrick’s, Velvet Falernum, cucumber & fennel seed cordial, lime). Both complex and well-rounded. Want to get back some time soon to try a few more of those."

"Great tasting food! The pork chop, scallops and duck confit were delicious. The tuna tartar was also very tasty. The bread pudding and Bourbon mousse were yummy. I have been here many times. The portions are small for a big eater. I have had some dishes that were just ok. However, most of the time the food had been wonderful. We will return!"

"We just moved to Hayward from the Peninsula and were looking for good dining options. Bijou foots the bill. They have a very contemporary and hip ambiance without overdoing it. Their food is excellent and their service outstanding. Their ahi tuna appetizer is scrumptious and their bread pudding absolutely delicious. We will become regulars."
