We keep coming back to Bazille for an excellent lunch. Enjoyed the herbed French fries with aioli, also the bisque.

From making the reservation to being seated and served, the whole experience was truly pleasant. Our server was kind in moving us as one was using a walker. There was more than enough room for the 4 of us. He had a nice sense of humour, asked about the food and was prompt in removing the finished plates.

I don't think much else can be said about Bazille that hasn't already been said: it's a "big city" experience in our little burg, with excellent ambiance, service, and incredibly tasty food and drinks. A great treat.

We went for Happy Hour as the wine is much more reasonable. Both the Happy Hour and regular menus are both still a bit limited, but the tried and true salads and sandwiches are still there. The kids menu is wonderful and service was fantastic. They also finally had the chocolate cake available!!

I have been an "habituée"of Basille restaurant. Due to Covid 19 I stayed home from March to August . As soon as I learned Basille was opened I did go back. Have been back for lunch twice, since. keep up with the good work...

The lunch menu is simple and limited. However, each choice is very good. We ate on the patio which happens to be on the roof of a shopping centre (complete with trees, grass and... wind). They do also have tables inside, where a transparent wall allows you to see what is going on in the kitchen (if that is what you want).

I was underwhelmed. A friend told me it was fantastic, but to me it was just average. The rooftop outdoor terrace was bland and boring. No view whatsoever, except of the roof. The food was ok but not exceptional. The service was good.

Not enough staff to properly wait on tables. Mix up with order. Would have liked to have coffee and desert too but had to ask someone for the billed who seemed a bit annoyed saying they were busy.

The food was fantastic. I had the Brussels sprouts Kung pao and the crab bisque. My friend had the shrimp and cilantro salad. All the dishes were fantastic and surprising given this is the resto at a department store. But most impressive was the serene patio on top of a shopping mall. You would think you are a 100 miles away from the hectic mall. This is a great retreat plus there is tasty food and peaceful ambience. We will return.

Always good service, food and time. My only criticism is that the salad wasn't as fresh as it could be and the wine/glass is over the top expensive for the wine selection available.

I was disappointed by the environment as a rooftop patio interested me but it did not feel this way by any means. The menu was very select however, everything ordered was perfectly executed. I won’t chose to go back but I wasn’t fully disappointed.

The drinks were amazing, the food too! The only « bad » point was that the rooftop wasn’t « nice », you don’t really have a view since it’s the top of the Rideau center.

The menu at Bazille includes a number of salads and soups as well as main courses of fish, chicken and a burger. My shrimp with linguine was tasty perfectly cooked. The dessert of raspberry white chocolate bread pudding was outstanding.
