I did read the reviews, I saw the great food and poor service. What I never found out is "would you go to this restaurant if you were not shopping at the mall?". I would not. I felt a little stupid, we invited friends and usually take our time with drinks and dinner. We were out of there in an hour. Drinks were ok. Deviled eggs and bacon and egg pizza were delicious (egg could have been cooked longer but we were starving). 4 minutes after our appetizers were served, our dinners came. As another reviewer said, they would not take them back. The server was nice enough but did not seem to care. She never asked if we wanted another drink, or coffee. We probably would have said yes to both, as we were catching up and wanted to spend time together. Salads were ok, steaks were just ok. If I were shopping and hungry, I might come back for a quick meal at the bar, but definitely not specifically for the food and service. Kinda lame.

Quiet that day and happy hour is great. Valentine’s Day was a disaster though.

Food is always good. Any problems with your food, they correct. We love there deviled eggs and split that as an appetizer. 2 halves each. We ordered the Margarita Pizza and shared. Excellent with thin crust and fresh tomatoes.

Our experience was nice. However, For some reason, they brought our start and entree at the same time. We asked if would be possible to save the entre so that it would not get cold, and they said that was no way to do it.

Good menu selections and fresh quality food. Service wasn’t great this last visit and my food was cold that I had to send it back. But that doesn’t discredit my family’s food, just poor service unfortunately.

Food is always good. This time we had the deviled eggs and a Margarita Pizza. The eggs are a nice appetizer to share. I had a Hermitage Scotch Ale 9% and it was excellent. One of our favorite dishes is French Dip Sandwich with Truffle Fries. Maybe next time.

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.
