Diner Reviews
  • "The food was phenomenal (as it always is). But a few times I've come into the restaurant, I've been left without any bread or too little bread for a party of 5. Last time I was there, they were out of fries (which is a bit forgivable because it was fairly close to closing) but I was nonetheless, very disappointed. The food came out promptly but when we were considering dessert, the waitress failed to ask if we would like dessert and brought the check out instead. While I understand that closing was very soon, I found it to be very unprofessional. As I mentioned, the food is great and although the service was subpar, I would still recommend coming here because the food's worth it."

  • "The restaurant is tucked away nicely in the back of Nordstroms, and the ambiance is nice. Depending on your seat you don't even remember that you're in a store. The service was really good - our waiter was really nice and friendly so we enjoyed chatting with him a bit. The food was good, but the real winner was the bread pudding dessert. It takes 10-15 minutes to make, but it is so worth it, as they kind of bake it a bit so its nice and warm, with slight crunch on the outside, and drizzled with white chocolate sauce. It's so delicious. Can't wait to have it again."

  • "Enjoyed watching the wait staff. While absolutely attentive to diners they were talking and laughing with each other. Felt like a good place to work and maybe that explains the very good service."

  • "Food was great, nice ambiance. A bit pricey, but good food overall."

  • "We arrived on time for our reservation. We were seated promptly despite how very busy it was. Our order was quickly taken, but it took 37 min to get our two salads. I did appreciate that they brought our son's meal out as soon as it was ready and so he was able to eat in 20 minutes. But they struggled with the demands of a lunch service with a full house. They offered us French onion soups for our inconvenience, but we are on a specific diet and just wanted our salads. Staff was friendly and I appreciated the apologies and acknowledgment. So despite the low score, I am attributing it to working out the kinks. I will try it again due to the convenience of its location, and hope this is just an isolated event."

  • "We were here shortly after they reopened and we were very disappointed but this time we were pleasantly surprised. Food was very good. We will be back. Great spot for good food and you don't want to fight the crowds of Santana Row."

  • "If energetic has become a synonym for uncomfortably noisy, then Bazille is a leader in energetic. I love the gnocchi and the fries but will stay away, at least during busy times. Asked the waiter if there was an area in the restaurant where the sound was less; he said no."

  • "The Kitchen appeared to be a little flustered but the wait staff and host/hostess were excellent. The service was great and although it took a little while for our food to come out, it was worth the wait - SO DELICIOUS! We had the steak, Caesar salad with Chicken, and the White Chocolate Bread Pudding."

  • "Our family enjoy the variety of food the restaurant has to offer. Very kid friendly. Our favorite place to hangout on Friday. I wish they bring back the weekly special."

  • "This is the third time I have tried the new Nordstrom Cafe at Valley Fair and they are improving. I had my old favorite, cilantro lime shrimp salad. The wait staff is still a little slow, but they are getting more attentive."

  • "Special time alone doing wife's favorite thing, shopping at Nordstrom. Added to that a special lunch and wine for both of us on our date. Nice place just to be and unhurried. Paul Smith"

  • "Love it! So much better than the former cafe. Wish all Nordstrom's would switch over to a Bazille or Blue Stove."

  • "Second chance at the new Nordstrom Cafe in Valley Fair. This was our go to, but since the refresh, it has not taken the direction I think they were hoping for. The food is hit and miss. While some of the old wait staff is still there, I have not had the good chance of getting them and the new staff is really slow and not very attentive. I hope they quickly get up to speed and turn things around."

  • "This was formerly Nordstrom Cafe. One no longer orders and pays first before being seated. The menu is similar but expanded. Had the skirt steak and it had a few pieces of rough chewing, thus the lowered rating. Husband's salmon was excellent. Also had to ask the waiter for the black olive dip (even though it's listed as part of the meal.) Service was generally attentive but I imagine if the retastaurant had been full (Monday might after Thanksgiving--it was 1/4 full,) it would have been slow service. They added a full bar and I'm going to wager they expect to make a lot more money with that. We ordered no drinks. Questionable whether we'll go back. I think the Nordstrom Cafe was a better set-up."

  • "Remodel and updated menu make this cafe even more delightful. SCRUMPTIOUS food, excellent service! Kept my favorites on the menu and can't wait to try some new additions. Highly recommend and loveeee that they take reservations now! We were seated immediately!"

  • "This was the first time I had been since they reopened. The restaurant was similar, but more open. I'm really glad they are on Open Table. If I had not made reservations the wait was going to 45 minutes. The service was a little slow, but I'm hoping that they will be improving over time. The food was good, they still have the fries with the olive dip!"
