The restaurant is in a anchor store in the mall (I know, go figure), but is excellent. It has an array of tables, bar seating and booths. Their menu is upscale, but yet approachable food. It's strange to have brusel sprouts as an appetizer, but they are great. Incredible flavor and texture. Their chicken pillard salad has just the right contrast of the arugula, onions, balsamic glaze and chicken. Their angel hair pasta and chicken (if you order it that way) is pretty spicy, but very nice. Great service as well.

Two of my favorite things, food and shopping in one place ! Bazille is a great option for lunch, quick bite or dinner any day of the week. Ingredients are always fresh and menu has something for everyone. Service is also always excellent and staff courteous and polite.

After making an advance reservation for 7:00 on Friday (11/3)night, we were seated in the bar area, definitely not what I had expected. I asked why we weren’t seated the the main dining area but the hostess said there were no tables available even though there were open tables. I asked about the open tables but they said they were reserved. Not sure why those tables were being held and we didn’t have a dining room table held for us. The young hostesses acted like they could care less, shrugged their shoulders and walked away. We almost left but our server came over and he seemed pleasant so we decided to stay.

We had a full dinner including a bottle of wine. The food was great and so was the wine. Our server was great too.

Ive been to this restaurant several times but I won’t be going back anytime soon and definitely not for dinner. I would rather have mediocre food and great service and not the other way around. I will consider this a lunch place. Recommend going to Doc B’s in the mall area instead.

Took my friend, Diane, for lunch here as it was her first time. Food and Service are always consistently wonderful . We had their soup of the day, French Dip, Crab Stack, Warm Asian Chicken Salad, one of their fabulous chocolate desserts and the BEST cup of hot coffee in town.

We had a great server...I am guessing at her name now, Jennifer (?) Blonde haired beauty that was so knowledgeable about the menu and suggested our being able to order 2, 1/2 entrees because we couldn't decide which ones we wanted....so we had them all :)

Have found that making a reservation is the best way to go...I know, even when you're shopping???? But it does guarantee you a table as they are Very, Very busy. Food is Fabulous. Lovely lunch. Can get noisy, just an FYI..

I was very disappointed to see that they removed the Ahi Poke appetizer from the menu. This was one of my favorites. I asked if it didn't sell well and the server told me it sold very well. They said they "sometimes do this."

I had the chicken paillard with onions and an arugula salad. It has a very nice combination of flavors and the chicken is huge!

food is almost always good... was very disappointed to learn that they have bread service (we noticed it at another table) but when we asked about it we were told it was available by request only. We were at the end of our meal at a busy time at lunch on a Sunday and waited awhile for our food. We had no idea we could request bread service. Seems like they are keeping a secret from loyal customers. We felt slighted we hadn't been asked about receiving the bread service. In fact, we have eaten there approximately 30 times and never knew about it. I guess we weren't among the privileged few who knew about it. It definitely didn't do anything to encourage our loyalty to them for dining.

This was a "Special Occasion" because anytime I get time with my Mom is a SPECIAL OCCASION!

With my mom being 84 years old, I love spending time with her whenever I can. Taking the time to spend lunch, a snack or just sitting in her kitchen is fun. This day we had lunch to just enjoy each other's time.

Luckily, there are several "stand-bys" on your menu that she really enjoys. It was a nice meal and the server was very pleasant.

Very disappointed with the restaurant. Located within a high end store and the wait staff are dressed like they work on the store's loading dock? Where is Nordstrom management and where is the dress code? The service was acceptable but absolutely NO dress code. With high end restaurants all around them both within International Mall and outside I was surprised, this being my first visit, how the wait staff was dressed down. The food was outstanding and the ambiance acceptable. I read previous reviews at this site before I went to this restaurant, for a business meeting, and some mentioned the noise level being high; I found this to be true. I wear hearing aids and even with them out the noise level was very bad. The restaurant has terrible acoustics and not a good place for a business lunch. Unfortunately, I will NOT be back. I blame the management of the Nordstrom for the lack of a dress code for its employees. I can go across the street to Eddie V's, or DEL FRISCO'S GRILLE, or close by to Ocean prime, all which I frequent, for great food, good ambiance, better noise volume, and yes, a wait staff that are expected to take pride in their appearance and represent their restaurant to the standard the restaurant owner and management set for the property. Only one chance to make a first impression and this first chance missed the mark.

We took some friends there for a light lunch. (It seems we are all on diets these days.) Each of us found something to like from Onion Soup with and without cheese to deviled eggs, chicken Caesar salad to Ahi Poke -- they are happy to trade the wanton crisps for extra slaw.

All the food was well prepared. We'll be back.
