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.
I suggest you put atmosphere on your list. A place to bring someone you want to impress.
Food quality and taste is excellent. Delicious cocktail (had the Nor'Easter). Our server was gracious and upbeat.
Our meal was enhanced by being waited on by Franco. He is a gem
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 were celebrating a birthday. Our server, Jason, was excellent, very personable and attentive. It was his first day, but one would never know it.
A great Mother and Daughter lunch on the patio. Wonderful service by Franco. Great food! And a take away recipe! Thanks for a special time.
Food and Service was excellent as usual
Administrative professional day
It took over 25 minutes to get our drinks, the food was fine, not great. I would go again only because it's convenient and the ambiance is nice.
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!
La ensalada de mango y aguacate muy poquita la porción
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.
Great. Asked for a window seat as a note in the reservation and they responded positively.
Recommend Bazille as a special lunch. Good food and ambience. Servers are great.
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.
Crab bisque way too salty but shrimp and crab salads were both great!
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.
Food was delicious as usual however the gnocchi with lamb ragu was too salty
It would have been nice if a piece of bread came with our pasta dishes to soak up the yummy sauce.
My friend and I were looking forward to a return visit. We were not as impressed this time as the price Was on the upside and didn’t deliver. We would return but we are thinking about going elsewhere the next time we get together.
Disappointed and a little concerned that on a Monday evening two main courses were no longer available at 6 PM. I hope all is well with the restaurant.
A new menu, featuring some old favourites, and tasty additions. Our go-to place before the NAC.
Great server, always a good experience.
This was my 2nd time there. Food is consistently great. Nothing complicated but nice and tasty. I will surely go back in the near future.
Kudos to Sheldon he was a great waiter! :)
Love this place for eating out. Do many business lunches here and recommend for anyone wanting forthwith great service.
Love Nordstrom’s again now that they no longer sell Ivanka Trump merchandise.
Excellent endroit pour dîner avant un concert (ou un spectacle) au Centre national des Arts juste à côté !
Very fresh food, reasonable size portions (not huge), tasty, overall quick and attentive service (although we had to ask for our bills at the end, got tired of waiting). Wine menu on the expensive side. Tables are not crowded (lots of room between tables) which translates to a pleas ant noise level where you don't have to scream for your mates to hear you. Will definitely go back.
The service and food were both good. We had the pizza which did taste as though it had been sitting for a while. The prices are a bit high.
Following the calamari appetizer, my husband and I both had the lump crab mac and cheese. Although very tasty there seemed to little evidence of crab meat and definitely no lumps of crab such as we have experienced numerous time in the Southern US.
Consistently good food and service.
Excellant restaurant. We hope you are around for a long time.
Once again enjoyed our meal at Bazille. I had the chicken salad and my son had the club which he loves and my friend had the cilantro lime shrimp salad. I have to say that the butterscotch was that accompanied the chocolate paradise cake was very burnt which left a bit of a nasty taste but all in all it was a tasty lunch and I will be back. Thank you.
My cousin was visiting Ottawa and staying in the market area. I drove in from Barrhaven and met her at Bazille.
It was the perfect spot for our Brunch time slot.
Excellent waiter who was attentive with coffee refills and lovely presentation.
Thank you Bazille for providing the perfect place to visit and catch up.
