Diner Reviews
  • "My request for seating in the bar was acknowledged and graciously handled. I wanted something very light so this was the perfect choice for a laid back Saturday afternoon. Lots of interest in the World Cup but patrons and servers alike. My special requests for the salad I ordered were perfectly executed."

  • "Food was excellent, service was excellent, noise level was high!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We go to the Café quite often. The food is usually very good however the service can be slow at times (like the wait staff is a bit disinterested). Also the ladies on their second glass of wine can get quite loud. But overall a very nice place to grab lunch."

  • "My co-workers and I often frequent Bistro N for lunch during the week. The food is good and the wait staff is generally friendly."

  • "The food and service is superb. Haven't found anything on the menu that wasn't great!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "This place is probably better known as a shopper's lunch spot - but we have eaten dinners here for a number of years - you can often slip in on Friday night or special occasion at the last minute - and enjoy a good meal and a surprisingly well priced wine list - and then take a stroll through Northpark. They decided to change their menu a few months ago and dropped many of their better dinner dishes. On our last trip - it felt like they might be having management issues - slower service , some new faces and the staff was just not working with each other. I hope Nordstrom's steps in and rescues this place soon - they had a good thing going. We are not giving up yet... it is fun to watch their very open kitchen."

  • "We went for lunch and came back for dessert. It was simply wonderful! Great food and service!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The first impression was not good. I requested the bar (online), and the hostess seemed compelled to direct me to a table when the whole restaurant was basically open for seating. My order was placed and it was straightforward with only a slight modification. My sandwich was excellent, but I had to excuse myself for a few moments to visit the restroom, and when I returned the unsigned check, beverage, and my food had been cleared. This was after I stated I was having difficulty. The whole order had to be done over with no time left to eat it there. Communications could improve without question."

  • "When at North Park, this is a great restaurant spot. Consistent in food and service, make sure you get a reservation it gets busy at the peak lunch hours. "
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "The management here does an excellent job of consistently providing good food at reasonable prices. They are always very accommodating and provide an good experience. On this occasion the waiter was a little goofy and slow (seems to have had another agenda to serving food) but in general it is still one of our favorite lunch spots."

  • "Bistro N is one of our neighborhood standbys. Food and service quality are always high and consistent."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Had to call mgr to get dining points, waiter did not tell me there was a surcharge for my sandwich with 2 extra items. I ordered a slice of cake for someone's birthday (before guests arrived) and it was cut into 7 pieces and brought out with an unlit candle. He served to others before the birthday girl, so it was awkward. Generally, one slice is brought out and everyone passes the plate to ake a bite. Foo was good though."

  • "Bistro N is always a treat and the crab bisque is something you will dream about."

  • "I almost always get the same thing when I go to Bistro N (crab stack). Excellent!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "David was our waiter as well as the bartender (we dined in the bar area). The food arrived quickly and David checked in From time to time but was not overbaring. Having my water glass refilled would have been a real plus but no one came by to check on that. I had the pan seared chicken breast with FF and asparagus. The chicken was a touch undercooked and there were way too many FF and only tbree spear s small of asparagus...this should be reversed. We sat at the table for 3 hours and never felt as if we over stayed our welcome. We'll be back."

  • "This is one of our favorite lunch spots when out doing shopping. The food is always consistently good at fair prices with little drama. The place can be very noisy with many of the ladies on their second glass of wine and the service can be slow probably because they are always crowded. But the chef needs to be applauded, The food is always fresh and flavorful."

  • "My husband and I love Bistro N! We have come here lots of times, but never on Valentine's Day. And we loved it! It was a wonderful evening!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I totally forgot how good the food is here. We went for a Girls Night Out. We had do much fun. The live music was perfect. There was great energy and a wonderful menu. I am so glad we went there."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "So I have dined at Bistro N several times. The food is always consistent and good. But so is the menu. It never changes....ever. And when it does they take of the things I like. And some of the food is really dated.. Crab Louis Salad???? Let me get out my 1920's flapper clothes because that's the last time that salad was popular.And that god awful stemless glassware from the 90's. The servers are great. Samantha always has a smile. Ali is great as well. The other weird this is that every time i go there is a completely different manager. Sounds like someone in corporate doesn't know how to retain good people. . The food is just general fodder. I don't think it's supposed to be creative. Try the crab stack. There seem to one on every table."
    Dined on 4/25/2013
  • "We have been to a number of Bistro N's in the country but this one is by far the best. The food is always consistently good and is the perfect spot for a break from shopping for some lunch. The only downsides are it can become very crowded and very noisy. Come prepared to wait for a table and service."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "I took a group of friends & family here for my birthday. A couple of folks arrived early & the waitress brought them water but did not set out any for the rest of until we arrived. The initial service was very slow although it was not very busy. One guest is very, very finicky & the waitress & manager did their very best to accommodate him when the dish he originally order was not available. However, at least three us of ordered the bistro bouillabaisse. It was too salty. Would have been excellent. Two of us sent back our cocktails because they were too syrupy. A trio of musicians played jazz & like music during dinner that was excellent. However, overall, there was room for improvement. Not up to Nordstrom's usual high standard."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "I was hesitant about having a nicer dinner at a restaurant inside a big department store. However, even though the restaurant is within the big store i felt that the food was very good. The scallops were prepared perfectly on a bed of sweetly seasoned corn! The service could have been a bit more attentive since it was a slow evening."
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "I love bistro N. The food is great, and so is the service. I really like that when I go, I never feel rushed."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "There should be more Mall food like Bistro N! The place was packed at lunch on a Tuesday. Reservations are the only way to go. French onion soup and Crab Bisque were very good. Asian Chicken salad delightful. Bread pudding…decadent. Major service faux pas!! Served entrée before serving soup, additionally, he was absent and aloof during the meal, but punctual and hovering with the bill. Will go again…withholding recommendation until next visit."

  • "Wonderful "hidden gem" upstairs in Nordstrom. Great for cocktails after work or a full meal. Nice ambiance and service. Have been three times and always enjoyed my meal. Food is consistently good and interesting choices. Great for vegetarians as they have good options."

  • "Six of us meet monthly for lunch at various local restaurants. We met here in December. Our reservation was ready when we arrived and we were greeted immediately by our server. She was very warm and answered all of our questions including recommendations when asked. She had no problem splitting the bill and checked on us frequently but not intrusively. Everyone was happy with their meals and although the restaurant was busy we did not feel we were being rushed. I had a problem with a gift card and one of the other staff took my card to customer service and resolved the issue. The restaurant is noisy but not to the extend that made conversation impossible. Overall a very good experience with outstanding customer service."

  • "Bistro N like the rest of the Nordstrom Northpark store is impeccable from start to finish. Not only is the food delicious, the staff is glad to see guests and make their experiences memorable. Having visiting many restaurants in the Dallas area as well as other Nordstrom locations, the experience here is many levels above the rest!"

  • "Seafood dishes are fantastic - Crab Mac and cheese is very decadent. Shrimp risotto and scallops also very good. Try Brussels sprouts and bread pudding. Great place for dinner on Fri and Sat nights, great food and usually not too bad of a wait"

    Dined on 10/30/2013
  • "I met a friend here, we had soups (tomatillo/chicken soup and the crab bisque) and they were good. The shrimp salad was good but not great, same for the crab louie salad. Service was a little slow and the restaurant was not really busy, Server was nice so I did not say anything."
    Dined on 10/9/2013
  • "No problem getting a reservation although the restaurant was fairly full. Lovely music in the bar area. Attentive service - our server was new so still learning the ropes - but she worked to please. We had special diet needs that our server helped us with and the food was very delicious. I had the salmon - it was cooked just how I like it. The wine list is spare but I did not expect an extensive wine list for a department store restaurant. We were removed from all the hustle and bustle of NorthPark. Valet parked entered the store and took the near by elevator to the restaurant. Delightful evening."

  • "Food was excellent, as usual. Service was slow. Iced tea refills required begging. Was shocked that on a $100 dinner bill we were charged for a piece of birthday cake for a friends 50th birthday. Won't go back for a special occasion."

  • "We had a great lunch, but the Open Table reservation was not on their system. They quickly accommodated me anyway. They said this happens a lot to their Open Table reservations. Really?! Not once has this happened in the years I've been using Open Table for many different restaurants. I think the breakdown b/w the two systems should be reviewed if this is occurring regularly for this restaurant. Thanks!"
