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 am never disappointed with a stop at Bazille. The food is fresh and high quality and service is always good. In addition to a nice lunch spot it is a great spot for dinner and typically not filled with shoppers and kids in evening.

Food was pretty good. We had lunch there to celebrate my friends birthday which I mentioned ahead of time. They said the only thing they could do would be to write happy Birthday on the plate and a candle for the desert we ordered (and paid for). When the time came, I had to go ask for it and was told it couldn't be done because the chef left. I showed my disappointment for no special birthday treat aside what I had to order. After returning from the restroom, somehow they managed to write happy Birthday on the plate but couldn't find a candle. It was a bit frustrating given this is supposedly an upscale restaurant and most places treat the birthday person to desert and decorate the plate. It was like pulling teeth but we made the best of it.
