Always enjoy eating here. It used to be a well-kept secret but the word must have gotten out because it was the busiest I’ve seen, especially for a Monday. Louder than usual and it took a bit longer to get served, but the food is always great and the menu has expanded. My favourite place for a ladies lunch.

A hidden gem tucked away in Nordstrom. I’ve been many times and the food is always amazing, and I mean amazing. Just can’t say enough about the quality, freshness and options. The staff are warm and inviting. It’s absolutely my favourite place to dine. You won’t be disappointed.

Given the Mall location, Bazille is one of two? non-chain style restaurants with professional chef quality offerings. It competes with nothing except Sak's Buffo, (horrible for noise and way over-priced). The refreshed menu is diverse and offers considerably more than gloomy Caesar salads and heavily breaded proteins. Generous plates for hungrier and more interested male diners. Prices have gone up, high in our opinion. But, we have the luxury of dining in other locales where quality is not as expensive. Servers are mercifully well trained and not overbearing, and able to quickly accommodate requests without drama. Perfect for a pre-movie of after shopping fresher dining option, in a very clean and well managed restaurant.

We were greeted by Emma who showed us to our reserved booth. "Sam" was our waitress and she has a good memory as she knew our preferences - well done "Sam", excellent service! Manager Mike was on duty that Sunday and made time to come and talk with us even though Bazille was"steady busy", much appreciated. The Admiral had the featured Arctic Char and Risotto whereas I had, yet again, that unusual pizza combination of smoked bacon and eggs with an IPA beer. Everything was delicious and prepared to perfection. It was delivered straight from the kitchen by Manager Mike as "Sam" was busy with other customers - terrific communication between the staff. Truly, another fine, relaxed lunch at Bazille!

Taylor was our waitress this visit and was both personable and capable - much appreciated.
The Admiral had the Arctic Char and Risotto and I took a winger with the smoked bacon and eggs pizza, both were winners! In fact, both are now high on the menu list as a first choice. The restaurant was busy at lunch 30 April, but it didn't impede our enjoyment of the occasion. :)

We went to enjoy a quiet weekend lunch. There was no special brunch menu but the regular menu has wonderful selections. I had the bistro club that is such an amazing sandwich. I love the focaccia bread slices instead of a giant too much bread bun. Their combination of chicken ,with green beans, and avocado and lettuce and tomato is light and refreshing. Your garlic aioli and olive aioli are terrific and compliment the food but never over power. The other diner enjoyed the southwest sandwich.
Menu always has a good variety of items but the service is always professional and diner focused.

The waitress was very helpful. We mentioned how much time we had for lunch and she was able to get our meals to us quickly. It was kind of different looking into the Nordstrom store at shoppers shopping for clothes while we ate but not a big deal. It did feel very open and bright. The salmon salad and burger we had were delicious. Would never would have tried this place had it not come up on OpenTable so once again, we were introduced to a great new place.

I have always had an excellent experience at Bazille. I tend to go for lunch and so usually have a salad. Salads are nutritious, super flavourful and visually appealing. Service is attentive but not intrusive; staff are very friendly and sometimes even fun!

We went earlier than normal, 11:30 am, this past Sunday. Katie met us with a warm smile and took us to a terrific booth where we were served by Denielle with her customary friendliness and expertise! We each tried something different to our normal fare: Halibut fish and chips plus pan seared prairie roadrunner (chicken) with a well cooked, chopped brussel sprouts - kale vegetable. Both were well prepared and enjoyable. Going earlier after a walk in the Chinook mall enabled a very enjoyable, less busy, quiet luncheon. Further, for those able to arrive early, access to a table is much easier.

This is a two for one review as "The Admiral" and I also went today, Sunday 10 May 2019. On the Saturday we were greeted by Katie who confirmed our Open Table reservation and were guided to a nice window booth. Amy, our server, was efficient and personable. Mike, the manager, was especially dashing - impeccably dressed - and he made time to discuss this excellent luncheon visit. I had the last dish (a rigatoni) at the bottom of the menu whereas "The Admiral" had the Garden Omelette. My dish was well prepared and enjoyable, but her omelette was outstanding - thanks to "the boss" for sharing. To my mind, it is the best value (breakfast, or lunch) in Bazille. On the Sunday, Katie greeted us again and I apologized for messing up my Open Table reservation (hit a wrong icon, which misdirected the reservation), but we got a nice booth nevertheless. "The Admiral" repeated the Garden Omelette (excellent a second time) whereas I tried the Asian glazed chicken salad, which I greatly enjoyed (along with a piece of that delicious omelette). Jesse was our server and, like Amy yesterday, did a terrific job. Alas, Mike was not on duty today, which we were warned of yesterday. All in all, two wonderful lunches back to back. As a comment, the fresh specialty bread and crushed olive in olive oil for dipping is a nice starter and gesture by Bazille. It helps the client to get nicely settled in for "The Main Event".
