Our meal was served in a relaxed, no-rush manner - from the Caesar salad, to the entree, to the yummy dessert. The warm apple cobbler dessert was superb - reminiscent of a Holiday dessert at mom's house. The service was outstanding!

Downtown Business Lunch
Reserved tables are always ready. Great, easy-to-eat-while-talking menu. Not expensive, but nice.

Eat, Shop, Enjoy
Always great food, great service and a perfect break before, after or during shopping. As a matter of fact, you don't have to shop at all. The Grill is a gem!

Classically Good Dishes
I can always count on The Grill for great service and classically good meals. I normally dine for lunch but recently tried The Grill for dinner and had an wonderful experience. The food was perfectly prepared and our server was representative of Nordstrom's commitment to customer service. It was a leisurely but that is exactly what we were looking for on a Sunday night.

service with "no problem"
Server responded to every request/order with "No Problem"
Irritating after awhile....

Lunch with a friend
Yes, Nordstrom Grill is inside the Nordstrom store, but the shoppers evaporate once you are seated at the table. The Grill is a more elegant version of the cafe. I had the chicken salad, my friend had steak salad, and both were fresh and delicious. I would suggest this for a special occasion lunch with a co-worker or small group of co-workers celebrating a success. Too loud for a downtown lunch meeting with a client, I think.

Good spot for a meeting
I planned to have a meeting with several friends at the CAFE. I thought the reservation was for the CAFE (I had no idea the Grill existed). I arrived at the CAFE and it was SO loud you couldn't hear yourself think. I was thrilled to know I was in the wrong place. The rill, in the basement, is a much better atmosphere, not quiet, but ok for discussion, and tasty food. It would be nice if Open Table could point out somehow that this is not the Cafe, as the Cafe is the better know of the two.

Work day lunch
The food is reliable and deliscious. I eat there often with friends and colleagues because it's centrally located, my reserved table is always ready and the staff knows we have to get back to the office. Perfeft balance of quality/price/convenience.

Best Steak in Town
On our recent trip to Seattle we ate here twice --- because the food is so good! I highly recommend the New York Strip Steak. It is prepared perfectly, the meat melts in your mouth and the flavor is wonderful. The Grill also has the BEST halibut and chips. The fish is fresh, well-prepared and plentiful. Bring a big appetite when you eat at this restaurant. Also, try the Nor'easter for a delicious beverage to go with your meal. I highly recommend reservations because this place fills up quickly during the lunch hour. We heard people being told it was a 30 minute wait.

The first time I ate here I was in desperate need of refueling while shopping with my kids on Black Friday. What a surprise to find this little gem of a restaurant. The food is delicious, the prices well below market for the quality and the friendly staff and service are also amazing. Very organized with the reservation service and setting up for kids. Now , ten years later we still book this restaurant for our Black Friday lunch and have never been disappointed. Crab bisque is our favorite!

Although we requested a booth (with our reservation), we were not seated in one. There was a reserved sign on 2 tables when I arrived (about 5 minutes early), but the hostess sat the couple ahead of me in line there. She obviously knew them and said, "the reservation hasn't shown, I'll give you the booth." When I pointed out the second booth with a reserved sign on the table and asked if we could sit there, she said those people reserved a month ahead. Maybe.... But the slight was giving away the table likely reserved for us and speaking to me as if I'd never been in a restaurant before.
The delightful waitress and delicious food almost made up for the hostess.
