    Always great food and service. The place is small and inside the store, so it is a little noisy, but the food and service make up for it. Love the Grill and the Nordstrom Cafe also.

    Nordstrom is Bellevue's best-kept secret. The food is always spot-on. Last Sunday, I enjoyed Chef Brandon's fabulous knocchi with chicken medallions, kale and squash. Fabulous! Hubby had his favorite halibut and chips. The Grill never disappoints, be it food, service or ambience.

    The menu is very good for a shopping mall restaurant and the food was well-prepared and attractive, but the hallmark of this grill is excellent service. Our reservation was ready as requested, the staff was very attentive and responsive, and we very much enjoyed the meal. Even during the hectic shopping, this was very pleasant. We will be back.

    Nordstrom Grill is a great place for lunch while shopping at Bell Sq mall. The staff is great, dining room comfortable and food is consistent and wonderfully prepared. As "they" say presentation is everything and the Grill never disappoints. The food comes out looking as wonderful as it tastes and the staff regularly stops to see if all is going well with the meal, refilling glasses, without hovering. Even tho its a small dining room it feels like you have space for a private conversation at your own table. I frequently meet friends here for lunch, it gets very busy so thankfully they take reservations!

    An affordable restaurant that is kid friendly can be hard to find. The Grill at Nordstrom's in Bellevue is exactly that. We really enjoy taking our boys to the grill and enjoying a great salad, the angus burger, or even a steak (if we're really hungry).

    Hubby and I had a taste for fish & chips and heard that Nordie's Grill was good. As always, Nordstrom delivers. Fish was moist and deliciously crunchy albeit a little greasy. Fries were fantastic with an herbed salt sprinkled over. Service was really great, but we were early diners with few other folks to look after. The early hour may have accounted for the staff noisily goofing off by the bar.

    The food was good. This is the first time we ate at the Grill. I LOVE the Nordstrom Cafe. I did not realize how small the place was and how close the bar is. If I wanted a drink with my meal I guess I would come here. Personally, I will stick to the Nordstrom Cafe. It is quieter and there is much more room.

    The tables are too close together so you feel like you're in the table next to yours' conversation. Other than that, the food is really great. HIGHLY recommend the crab bisque and the blackened salmon caesar salad. I make a point to go here just for those when I want them. Prices are OK, but on the high side. But the seating keeps me away.

    We requested a booth on our reservation and the hostess was ble to accomodate us. It was the half yearly sale weekend so I wasn't sure we would be accomodated. Food was good as usual. Coffee after lunch was cool and we asked that it be removed from the bill. This is the second time this has occured at the Grill. Overall, it is a great choice and perfect location if you are shopping at Nordstrom or Bellevue Square.
