    I ordered grilled chicken sandwich. I expected a simple grilled chicken. Instead, the chicken was ground up with parsley and tons of salt. It was one of the worst grilled chicken sandwiches I have ever eaten.

    My husband and I discovered the Nordstrom Grill after an evening of shopping. Shopping is my husband's least favorite thing to do so I now have a great way to bribe him....dinner at the Grill! They have a great menu, excellent wines, and fantastic service .For such a small tucked away restaurant, the food is surprisingly good. It can get quite busy so make sure you make reservations with Open table.

    The Grill at Nordstrom's in Bellevue Square os a great place to meet for lunch. Food is fresh and tasty, staff are very friendly and attentive, and the location is great. Highly recommend the soup, salads and specials. Reservations recommended as it gets busy at lunch, walk ins accommodated but you'll have a wait (nice touch: The staff will text you when your table is ready). Be courteous to others and respect the line at the entrance: A couple of diners were rude and cut in front.

    Although the restuarant wasn't that busy, service was rather slow. While the steak salad was good, the crispy potatoes in it were a bit too salty.

    The Grill always has something good on their daily menu. They've added onion soup to their menu and it's really good! My son loves their burgers and I can't stop nibbling his fries because their so darn tasty. This is a wonderful dine and shop venue. The food is always better than you expect and super convenient. I recommend making reservations when you know you're heading to the mall so you can jump to the head of the line when you arrive. Lots of walk-ups wait to get in.

    The food is "expensive" in terms of calories. I had the salmon which tasted good but is a bit dry and tough. The passionfruit semifreddo is really good and it is not as loaded with calories as others.

    On Friday, February 28th, I met some friends for lunch at The Grille. As it turns out, we've all been there before, but not as a group. The importance of this: we were able to recommend items we had enjoyed and we all shared something the other ones hadn't tasted. I had no idea your lemonade was so refreshing and the chicken sliders were oh, so tasty! I will most definitely return to The Grille and continue to send customers your way.

    This restaurant consistently provides good service, food, and an atmosphere that makes eating and shopping a fun experience. Each time I dine here, I enjoy trying their Chef Special and am never disappointed. Everything tastes fresh with compelling layers of flavors. On their regular menu, my favorites are the Grilled Vegetable salad and their version of a Louis Salad which has batter fried shrimp and is extremely yummy. And of course, their crab bisque is always wonderful.

    We decided to try the Nordstrom Grill for the first time for Restaurant Week. The $28 three course dinner was a great deal overall. The appetizers were delicious (grilled chiken sliders, onion rings, baby green salad), as were the desserts (chocolate mousse cake and berry crisp). However, the ribeye steak was incredibly salty, almost inedible. In fact, we really couldn't finish them. The waitress asked if we wanted to send them back, but the way she asked made me feel really bad about saying yes. It was getting late and we were among the last of the customers. In retrospect, I wish I had sent them back because we ended up boxing up the steak and will probably just feed it to the cats. My kids love steak but couldn't really eat this.

    I was there for lunch around 11:45. I was interested in having a burger for my lunch from that chef's special menu. So I ordered the burger but within 30 seconeds, the server came back to me and told me they are out of it. Come on, that was about noon and you guys cant be out of it..So I guess that burger must be popular or the server just want to give me the hard time.

    Service at Nordstrom Grill is impeccable, as you'd expect from Nordstrom anything. Some of the recipe choices are puzzling, however. My shrimp and crab Louie salad came with breaded, deep-fried shrimp -- that was a first for me. Not the kind of food I'd expect for people trying to fit into Nordstrom's clothes.

    We really appreciate the servers giving separate bills, but they need to be careful giving the card back to the right person. Of course, we should be more aware of which card we are getting back also. Last week we were here for a late lunch and there was a cafd mix up. This week, we checked and we got the wrong card back again. But because of what happened before, we caught the mistake. Thankfully my friend was the one that took my card home, and I took hers.

    I had the opportunity to visit the Nordstrom Grill for the first time and found the experience to be well worth it. The service was excellent and fast, they were very adaptable to our requests and the service was excellent. We went early in the dinner cycle so it was not that crowded and the noise level was subdued compared to most other restaurants in the area. The food was delicious, with just enough heat in the bisque to make it enjoyable but not overwhelming while the other dishes, including the chicken fingers for my daughter were exceptionable.
