Service was terrible. Bread was not brought to the table until asked for. Soup did not come for a long time and then the entrée came almost immediately after And did not give us time to finish our soup. The sauce for the French dip was cool so we sent it back and it didn’t come back for a long time and until I asked for it.

Almost everything great except at times we asked a few things.....we were always forgotten. We had to ask all we requested twice before we get it! Our server was great....except for the fact that we had to ask again for what we needed. Its not even busy when we dined!

Food and service was good until the end when some guy who wasn’t our waiter cane from out of the blue to hand me our bill. I told him we came in for the $39 per person special. He said, “sorry, you should have told us before you ordered because you don’t get certain meats with the special.” I told the gal I spoke to on the phone the night before that we were coming in for the special so I felt I did my part, she should have noted it. Plus when you are with a larger group there’s too much visiting taking place to monitor what types of meat the waiters are bringing to the table. Just very disappointing as I am retired and careful about my spending so I saw an opportunity to treat my family of 12 to a special dinner and save some $$$. I felt the person bringing me the bill should have honored it and said, “I’ll do it for you this time but next time please read the fine print,” and all would have been well. It would also have spoke volumes for Fogo de Chao as well....as a good faith gesture. I’n addition we were overcharged by $90 as 3 of us had salad bar only but were charged for a full meal. Fogo de Chao has good food, our waitress was great but this whole special turned out to be anything but for us.

Other people had fish and chips and thought it was very good - however, I had salmon with Israeli couscous and the salmon was extremely overdone. I strongly considered sending it back. The couscous was fair - but I definitely would not order it again.

As always, the food and cocktails here are great. The crab bisque is always wonderful. The calimari tasted good, but this time was soggy, not crisp. The salads and burgers we had were excellent and perfect temperature.

LOVE BAZILLE!! I’m at Bazille at least once a week. Love the soups and the bread is to die for. Nicoise Salad is AMAZING. My only suggestion would be to PLEASE change the desserts!! They’ve had the same desserts for way too long. At one time they had an awesome Pizookie and it may have even been gluten free but it went away too quickly. A peach pie would be wonderful or other fruity dessert. A chocolate mousse with a cookie would be great too.

Every time I have visited Bazille in the past, I have always had a good experience, however, this time, I am on a low-sodium/non-dairy diet and I ordered the Cilantro Lime Shrimp Salad and knowing the sodium content (I made an exception for that day) but I asked for no jack cheese and the salad came out with cheese, the waiter, Zach, said that the salad came like that and they can't fix it. So, I ate it anyway by scooting the two handfuls of jack cheese to the side. I know that Nordstrom and Bazille are accommodating most of the time but this experience was very disappointing and I completely lost my appetite but I was starving and had to eat something and the service was not that great either, we saw him a total of 5 times.. first two times to ask if we are ready and ordered on the second time, and the third was handing our food, and last the bill and giving us the credit card/cash transaction we made.

The power went out in the entire mall while we were dining and the staff gave us our meal for free because they had no way of charging us. We had a $20 on us to tip our super nice waitress. We felt so bad because so many tables just up and left, without even speaking to the staff. If we had more cash on us, we would’ve left more for her. It was a great experience, even with the odd circumstance. The food there is INCREDIBLE.

Our group had the skirt steak, club , and chicken tacos. Everyone was satisfied. We had 2 French onion soups. One of them was burnt and not very good. The other one was very good. Ok t was slightly black so they should have noticed and not served It.

Great ambience at Bazille’s at Nordstrom’s elevates the shopping experience, but the good food brings me in even when not shopping. Delicious fries accompany many imaginative sandwiches like the chicken club that include crunchy green beans on it. There are many tasty appetizers, salads and entrees to choose from and I plan to try the lobster mac and cheese next.

I love this place so very much. For decades it has been a family favorite, and it never disappoints. I wish it was in my neighborhood and not in the mall. I would be there every week if it was!

The service was great but the food isn’t as good as it used to be. We got the shrimp pasta and chicken sandwich and both were pretty bland and dry. The crab bisque will always keep me coming back though...

Our waitress was the worse waiter we’ve ever had in a restaurant! She tells us that there’s bread baking in the oven and will bring it to our table but forgets. She writes down our order but forgot to bring our Caesar salad. She asked us how we would like to have our meats done and we tell her medium rare and she brings it well done and very dry to which we showed her. We were four people but she brought two entrees way before the other two and by the time the last two entrees are brought to the table, the other two people are done eating. Both steaks were cold and dry therefore the butter wouldn’t even melt (see picture). In the muddle of the overdressed and wet arugula salad was a corn (see picture). She didn’t know the wines. She forgot to bring one glass of water which was requested when the steak was brought in, asked her twice and by the time she brings it, the food was done and swallowed dry. She brought complimentary ice cream but forgot the spoons which still does not make up for the horrible waitress service. Disaster!!!!

I have visited Bazille three times this month of January and haven't been disappointed! Although I have been aware of it's existence it wasn't a place to eat that I had on my radar: maybe 'cause it is located in a store. If you love comfort food; this is a must. The menu is limited but what they have would satisfy even the pickiest eater.

I have tried the burger twice once with their shoestring fries which is paired with a kalamata aioli dipping sauce. My friend selected the french onion soup and a salad which was aesthetically appealing and delicious. Most recently my husband and I opted for their burger but I substituted for the caesar salad. Don't forget to check out the dessert menu; love the orange bundt cake with whipped cream. Service is also above normal (on a scale of 1-5) I would say 4 only because you need to ask for refills.
