We had a lovely lunch. Everyone was very happy with their food and liked the chosen wine very much. It was busy which is always a good sign. This was my second time, and both, reservations were made. Very wise to do so.

The service was poor :
Waitress brought soup with main course instead of before She never checked back after the meal to see if we wanted coffee or dessert She disappeared when it was time to get the bill - we had to ask another waiter for it
They were out of grey goose vodka and lobster mac and cheese

Maybe a few more vegetarian choices?

Service to order was slow but good afterwards. Food took a very long time to come out and some dishes were cold. The waiter was very kind and had a new dish re cooked and it came out quickly. Food was very very good.

No vegetarian mains. Even the salads all have seafood/fish or chicken in them. The only thing I could really eat was the tomato and buratta salad and the pesto on it was so over-salted, it wasn’t edible. The wine list is terrible. Truly a disappointment.

We brought 4 children in for the dinner break between shows and wanted to fast turnaround for food. The server was courteous, and even brought out some fruit for the children to eat before their meal. The food service was relatively quick and our server was very attentive to our needs. The food is excellent and we will return a few more times before our show run ends I am sure. All in all a wonderful dining experience.

I was surprised to find Bazille almost full at 1 pm on a Thursday but I was shown to my table with a minute of arriving. It was definitely noisier than usual but conversation we still possible. And, surprisingly, the atmosphere was still relaxing.

Club sandwich was delicious. Arugula and Prosciiutto pizza has pesto on it which was a surprise. Fish tacos really nice. Brussels sprouts too oily. It’s restaurant in a department store and the ambiance did nothing to change that. Good for a meal of your shopping there but not a destination restaurant

Brussel sprouts were amazing but Shrimp salad was awful. Ate one bite and sent it back. Server did not offer anything. It might have been partly a poor choice to have salad last because it’s much less flavorful. It tasted bland and fishy. Seems to be hit or miss. This is not as good as the Nordstrom dining experiences I’ve had in other locations. I’ve only dined here once so could have been an off night, because typically I find every Nordstrom to have good food and excellent service.

The service was horrible. We had to keep asking for things, I ordered a shrimp salad and they brought me a chicken salad. Then I waited a while before I got my meal, my friend was finished before I got my meal, there was no attempt for apology, to adjust the bill or anything. No acknowledgement for a birthday dinner, etc.

My friend took me to Bazille for a birthday lunch. This is a favourite restaurant of ours and we are never disappointed, as was the case this time. She had the delicious club sandwich and I had the shrimp salad, which was a gluten free choice on my part (without the tortilla chips). Our waiter, Franco (the best in the business, by the way), accommodated my request for extra cilantro to supplement that in the dressing. We shared the Crème Brulee which was offered to us and it didn't disappoint - yummy.
All staff our cheerful and friendly and it makes for a very relaxing atmosphere. Altogether an excellent experience. Thank you, Bazille!

The waiter needs more training. He interrupted too many times. Left dirty dishes on table too long. Had to remind him to clear table before dessert arrived. Asked for water- he only brought one glass.......

We got a lovely booth overlooking restaurant. The server was very attentive. The food came quickly and was delicious. Definitely good value for the money. We both ordered the chicken club- one with fries & one with salad- the only negative is there weren’t enough greens.
