The remodel looks nice. It opens the restaurant up to the 3rd floor of Nordie's which is good, I think...it loses a little of its' ambience but also adds so I would say neutral. The spacing is good for social distancing and the staff was very careful with cleaning and masking. Our table had just been disinfected when we arrived and was still wet, which was ok, I'm getting used to that. Still using paper menus although there was a QR code on the table. Menu has shifted a tad but still has staples like the tomato soup and the Caesar with anchovies. Great place for lunch whilst shopping!

Best recent experience. Someone made some tweaks and it's paying off. Bread better, wine recommendation on key, and food delicious. Everything was great, not just ok, and the service was notable.

Food is normally good at this restaurant chain. We have been to the Dallas location and loved it. Not a great experience for us at the Houston restaurant. Food was disappointing.

This has become a family tradition for us.....having lunch together during the holiday season (and we got our reservation about two months in advance). Our server did the best he could under the circumstances but our food was not served hot and it was so busy, we decided not to send it back. We felt rushed and wanted dessert but decided to go elsewhere to release our table.

As always, the service and food at Bazille were excellent. They readily help with recipe modifications for our Celiac daughter and my need for dairy-free due to allergy. This attention to detail is why this is our go to dining destination when visiting The Galleria for shopping.

Needed more dressing on the roasted chicken salad-daily special and a touch less greens.

Great spot in the Galleria Nordstrom to grab a bite while there shopping. The ingredients are fresh and dishes well-executed. There is a good variety to choose from, along with calorie counts. If you'd like a drink, try the GM75, champagne with grand marnier and lemon rind. Love the oriental chicken salad, but there is no shortage of splurge-worthy dishes, such as the burger.

We took a 4-year old to buy shoes then celebrate her birthday at Bazille. It was perfect! Food was not too "fussy" for her and yet wonderful for the adults. The waiter was kind and paid close attention to our time schedule. The ice cream and chocolate birthday cake were fantastic too. I look forward to going back again soon.

Things have changed a bit here since we started coming a few years back. It's still good, although I remember it better. Service is still good, but food and wine are hit and miss. Service good, food good, but I always felt this place could be great.

Despite having an open table reservation, the hostess at our arrival told us it would be over an hour with multiple large tables available. Another person walked up and said it would only be a moment. They were a little disorganized.
The waitress was very warm and pleasant. Unfortunately, they ran my credit card on someone else’s bill. It took time to sort that out.

The worse service EVER. Our waiter looked unkept and worn out. He must have been overworked or something was going on with him. He was always not around. Quite disappointed because this was inside Nordstrom’s and I had heard so many good things from my friends. I had to constantly ask for help and I even asked other servers. Normally other places would help each other out. These servers just looked at me and went about their business. Quite frustrating. Also, TWO of the items we ordered never came out either. Would I recommend this place to anyone? ...definitely not.

I love their Nicoise Salad and the club house sandwich. You will never go wrong with these. Price is reasonable and the servings are just enough to fill you up. I also love the fries that comes with it.

This was not our usual experience. They were slammed because of Anniversary Sale—running out of food, plates and silverware. Still enjoyed ourselves. Just missed a few of our favorites and the normal level of service.

Our waitress was top notch- very attentive and made sure we understood the tastes may be slightly different than expected. The kitchen was understaffed so the dessert was late and made complimentary. I suggest something be done about the blinds. The evening sun is brutal and we were told the wait staff are not allowed to lower unless they lower all because one window is broken (?).

I look forward to eating the salmon nicoise salad at Nordstrom; however, upon my last visit, I found that the complete menu has been changed. I realize that restaurant must change their menus from time to time. It's unfortunate that I probably won't visit the restaurant again.

The big disappointment was that they were out of the chocolate that comes with the bill. The menu changed again.
Need to have options for vegans, it was a big mistake to take the hummus off the menu. And still miss the Vine Ripe Tomato Salad. Most of the soups have dairy in them.
We were celebrating a birthday and nothing is done for birthdays, which is a disappointment.

I've eaten here before and I don't know what happened. We had a group of 10 that showed up right at opening, it took 45 minutes to get our meal with the restaurant empty. The menu was revamped and the portions seem smaller. I had the lobster mac and cheese, this was a $20 plate. I had a seafood mac n cheese at a higher end restaurant in the Galleria area the day before and the portion size was double. I was very disappointed in this visit.

I specifically asked the server, is the Turkey Sandwich served hot? He said yes and when I got it the turkey was cold. Fries were greasy also.
