Having arranged a special lunch for my family, I was disappointed. When I made the reservation I was asked if this was for a special occasion, which was for my husband’s birthday. The restaurant was not busy and we were promptly seated.
Our waiter was friendly but slow. It took some time for my Pinot Grigio to arrive. Our water wasn’t replenished until we asked, which was the end of the meal.
The crab, Mango & Avocado salad consisted of little chunks of mango and even smaller ones of crab with a few slices of avocado, a few greens on the side and three very hard , cold toasted slices of baguette. Not much thought in the presentation of any of our choices. All in all, I found it to be an expensive lunch for a rather mediocre meal.

Excellent meal. Wine is too expensive for ordinary LCBO offerings.

Always a great lunch date with my daughter on the patio. The noise level increased due to a large party of pensioners next to us having a fun reunion. The occasional outburst was pretty loud but nonetheless didn’t spoil our lunch. We love the Bazille!!

Excellent crab bisque and salads, one with crab and one with shrimp. Crostini breads were hard as a rock so perhaps less toasted next time, service with Michael was excellent and we even got recipe for shrimp salad, not our first time and we’ll go back for sure

We go to Bazille specifically because of noise levels. Even when busy the noise is tolerable. For many diners this is becoming a very important aspect of dining out and should not be underestimated by Bazille. Congratulations.

Our server was smart, pro-active and professional.

Original table had an odour similar to a sewer. We asked to be moved. The waiter was very good. The salmon was overcooked. From the menue one assumed the $28 salmon was a hot meal when in fact the couscous was cold and mixed with salad vegetables. I only went to Nordstrom 's because my friend likes it but it's layout, atmosphere does not appeal to me and the food is greatly overpriced. My 1st visit last December resulted in a high priced roast beef sandwich where the beef was of poor quality. I will not return nor recommend the restaurant to anyone else.

I have often recommended this restaurant to friends and colleagues. We especially love their Asian Tuna Salad! I hear it will be featured for the month of September. Go and try this salad. If more people try it, it could come back on the menu!

This was our third visit to Bazille and it was a great experience every time . The Maple Bacon Devilled eggs plate is a favourite with our group.

Contrairement à d'habitude (nous allons chez Bazille régulièrement et sommes alors satisfaits) le 23.8.19 a vraiment fait exception.
Ça a pris 10 bonnes minutes avant de voir un serveur. Puis la serveuse attitrée est passée prendre la commande 10 autres minutes plus tard. Le premier met était 1 tasse de bisque de crabe x2 . Et bien, au bout de 10 autres minutes, nous avons demandé à l'hôtesse de nous la servir ...ce qu'elle a fait 5 minutes plus tard.
Bref, en tout, ça nous a pris 30 minutes avant de prendre notre 1ère bouchée.
Nous étions bien déçus. :-(

Bazille has a lovely and diverse menu and are ready to accommodate any dietary restrictions. We were there on a Wednesday evening and were able to sit on the patio and enjoy the warm weather. I look forward to the next time.

Excellent, tasty fresh meals. We all had salads - Asian chicken, shrimp and crab - and we all found our meals to be very tasty and well made. Perfect portion size too. Service was excellent. The only downside is that when the restaurant is full, it’s very noisy so not the best for a business meal.
