bras·se·rie: (n) /brasəˈrē/

A gathering place for friends to enjoy culturally-inspired foods, crafted cocktails and casual conversation.

Located in one of downtown Tampa’s most iconic and historic buildings, the city’s former federal courthouse, Bizou Brasserie may look formal on the outside, but inside you’ll find a downtown Tampa restaurant to remember in a casual, fun environment.

Bizou (meaning “kiss” in French) is just the place to kick off a great evening at a restaurant in downtown Tampa or wind down after a night on the town. Here, you’ll find a comfortable, relaxed setting for date nights, business lunches or post-work relaxation. Join us before or after a special evening downtown visiting the museum, Tampa Theatre or a performance at the Straz Center.

And if you’re looking for a location to host your own celebration, wedding reception or corporate event, Bizou Brasserie and Le Méridien Tampa have the perfect space for you.

Culturally-Inspired Foods

Expect the unexpected. Our name may be French, but this is not your typical French inspired restaurant.

Our menus offer a hint of French-Creole inspiration with the comfort of American favorites across a variety of cultures. We are proud to source regional products in-season and offer Angus steaks, Duroc pork, fresh seafood and produce. In the Bizou bakery, art-inspired pastry desserts are prepared to delight the eye and satisfy the sweet tooth.

Enjoy culinary exploration from the Bizou kitchen for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Crafted Cocktails & Casual Conversation

Find your space in a comfortable, eclectic environment.

And when it comes to winding down the day, we offer an international wine list, featuring a selection of wines by the glass, uniquely crafted cocktails and an assortment of local craft beers that will make Bizou your neighborhood gathering place for enjoying a relaxing evening with friends in this downtown Tampa restaurant.

Enjoy the happiest of happy hours, Monday through Friday, 4-7pm, with drink and appetizer specials. Take in live music on most Wednesdays and Fridays from 6-9pm with a blend of local artists, from jazz to pop and instrumental.
