Had a great time, lunch menu was great. Happy to have the patio seating on such a lovely summer day. Nice to have one restaurant in the market that doesn't feel crowded!

Service was slow. Waitress was friendly but drinks from the bar took way to long, at least 15 minutes after they were ordered.

I had a shrimp salad, cilantro lime. Usually very good but this time , very few shrimps with lettuce and about 4 kernels of corn for 22.00$. The shrimps were over cooked .
Service was hurried.

Overlooked gem in downtown Ottawa. High quality menu shared by all Bazille locations. Suffers a bit from mall hours on Sundays. Service uneven, some servers “get it”, others don’t.

Great patio on a nice day.

Great casual dining. However, the Bistro Club didnt seem to have the kalamata aioli spread and the bread wasn’t rustic and toasted. I missed the sweet potato fries which is no longer being served. It was nevervetheless healthy with the salad. Our choice desserts were excellent!

We like the ambiance, but the new menu did not appeal to us. We shared a French dip sandwich and were disappointed. The roast beef was not hot enough and was very chewy and rather tough. We have had lunch many times at Bazille but won't be back.

Could have gotten a better table and the salmon could have come with a veggie, but everything was quite good. Their cocktails are amazing, although a tad small, and the service is excellent. Recommend.

Always a good experience, excellent service from our waiter Franco this visit. A new menu with some interesting dishes and the desserts were fantastic, especially the Bread Pudding with White Chocolate Sauce and the Banana Crème Brule. Always a great place to go!

A group of friends met for lunch before our shopping expedition. We had reserved (you need to reserve, it is a very popular spot). The service was excellent, friendly and very effecient. The foid was excellent as well. I had chicken cilantro tacos, (small plate, two-bite tacos)with a side salad, and they were the best tacos I had ever eaten. My friend had a club sandwich, which was also delicious, and the third member of our party had french onion soup. The menu is quite small but has something for everyone. It is a little pricey, but in our opinion the food and setting is worth it.

Probably the best French Onion soup in town: rich broth, topped with generous amount of cheese. However, the soup was disappointing on Saturday, April 7. Too much bread, too much onion, they skimped on the broth and cheese. Hope this was just a busy/bad day in the kitchen??
I often drop-in for lunch following Saturday shopping.

L’endroit est pratique lorsqu’onvisite leCentre Rideau ou Nordstrom et qu’on veut prendre une pause et prendre une bouchée.J’utilise le restaurant Bazille plus comme une halte agréable avec un repas léger que pour un repas complet.Le menu est le même depuis le début et la qualité est constante mais la quantité des portions a diminuée.Demeure un endroit où je m’arrête régulièrement.

Overall, this restaurant was a disappointment. The french dip was so salty it had to be sent back. I had the asian chicken salad which was served in a bowl. Unfortunately, all the sesame dressing collected at the bottom of the dish so by the time I was half way through the salad, the bottom half of it was soaked and soggy. When I suggested the server tell management of this problem, she responded it was a head office decision and they could not change anything. I won't go back.
