Delightful to once again share a meal with friends. The food was very good and the service was at a “leisurely COVID pace”; ie. what we can expect as the economy opens up. We were fine with that but don’t expect to be out in an hour. The manager did his best to cover for the shortage of staff including thanking us for our patience. Our waiter was most accommodating.
I hope that they can keep their patio open until Ontario mandates that all staff must be vaccinated.

Service was attentive but not disruptive, the restaurant seating was well spaced out. I enjoyed my Asian glazed chicken salad and can’t wait to go back. It doesn’t hurt the Bazille is in Nordstrom which is my favourite store. I can never leave without a glorious purchase .
Thanks Bazille, you never disappoint.

After a 18 months of being at home, as a family we wanted to have a special experience, which we have at Le Bazille. Our food was excellent, fresh and great taste. The service was very good, however the chocolate cake with ice cream was the perfect option for the finale. definitely our first choice as option to have a great family gathering.

Food and service were both excellent, and being able to reserve a table on the patio was a definite plus (these days many Ottawa restaurants only take reservations for indoor dining)

This is a lovely patio for a light, relaxed lunch. The covered outdoor space is away from noisy traffic and the tent would make it comfortable even if you get a surprise rain shower. A lovely spot to share a pizza or an appetizer over a glass of wine or a cocktail, they also have more robust fare for those who are a little hungrier.

Even though we had a reservation for 2.30, we had to wait till 3.15 to get a table, as they said they had not cleaned it. We were celebrating a special occasion, and my 83 year old mother had to wait for 45 minutes, which was very tiring for her; so somewhat of a damper. No issues with the food though.
