Excellent food and great patio. Hidden gem for dining at the Rideau Centre. Will recommend for high quality food at a modest price.

Food is usually very good here. On this occasion my French dip beef sandwich was composed of dried, fatty tough roast beef. Very disappointing; I won't be heading back again in a hurry.

really great customer service from our server. One of the girls was vegan and the chef had no issues making her a special dish. Only complaint is the bartender took awhile to make drinks and made it very obvious he didn’t want to be there

The food is fabulous. So is the ambience and the service. My only complaint is that the servings are too small. Not wanting a calorie-laden dessert, I often leave still hungry.

La terrasse extérieure manque un peu d’attrait (qualité des tables et confortabilité) vs la salle à dîner intérieure. Autrement excellent menu. Ça vaut le détour.

Bazille's has been one of my favourite restaurants for lunch since it opened and remains a very pleasant place to dine, but I have noticed a slight decline in quality and service. For example, they used to be happy to provide half salad/half fries with the Bistro Club but they no longer do so. On a recent visit I waited a long time for a server to come to the table to make initial contact and take a drink order.
An annoying thing on my most recent visit was the waiter addressing me and my friend as "Senora" and saying "Bella" or Grazie Senora" everytime he came to the table (which was frequently). I know he meant well but it was irritating. He didn't speak with an Italian accent so it really seemed like an affectation.

I was disappointed in the menue. I found the offerings uninspiring. The menue is quite plain. I was expecting something along the lines of your previous menue. I will no longer recommend as a wow place for food. It used to be my favourite place to recommend. Too bad

Even though I pre booked almost 2 weeks in advance and wanted a patio seat....I didn’t get one....and we were squeezed between two other groups when there were many other areas of the restaurant inside that seemed empty

The food at Bazille is very good. Always cooked perfectly and the menu has lots to choose from. There is something for everyone. Atmosphere is nice, for such an open restaurant it feels very cozy. Staff are always friendly and accommodating. I love eating here when I'm in the mall. So much nicer to come up to Bazille for a quick bite than having to sit in the overcrowded food court. Will keep coming back.

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!
