Didn't even know this place was on the third floor. Quiet yet well maintained. The food was great, but it wasn't expensive, especially considering it's in Nordstrom. I would definitely go again.

Bazille is a hidden gem. Formally Nordstrom Cafe, this restaurant still has much of the same menu as before but with a more contemporary vibe. The lemonade is freshly made, the bread is fantastic and the entrees are well prepared. My wife and I love bringing our son for a casual yet cozy dinner. The service staff is wonderful and they always make sure our glasses are always full. It's a terrific spot for lunch and dinner.

I love coming here when I go to Valley Fair.
It's my favorite place to eat in the mall with my daughter :)
They change the menu here and there and it's always great....the wine by the glass selection is very good.

The hostesses were fantastic, they sat me right away. As a single dinner my only comment is that it would be nice to be out in the main area not put in a corner new a server station or hostess station. The food was AMAZING as always, I’ve been here many many times and the food always exceeds expectations.

Usually the service also exceeds expectations, however, this time around my waitress only checked on me once after I received my food. Then I was left looking for her for over 45min after my dishes and drinks had been taken away. I ended up asking a different waiter for my check. He quickly got it for me but seemed put out by my request. All in all it wasn’t an ideal way to end a meal.

However, I have to say that this is one out of over fifty times in the last few years I have gone to Bastille. It usually doesn’t happen and I know the managers and servers will be more on it in the future!

The service was great, but the food has declined. I used to get the seared chicken but it was taken off the main menu and brought back as a seasonal item. As a seasonal item the way they cooked it changed- no more crispy skin or herb butter. Bleck! Also, they didn't offer bread, olives or chocolate sticks at the end. This place has changed for the worse.

I eat here often, dining alone on my way to evening meetings and rehearsals, etc. But this time my wife and I elected to go here together before attending a performance nearby. Fearing it might be crowded, we booked a reservation on OpenTable. Everything we ordered was great, service was good, overall a pleasant experience.

We waited over 40 minutes for our food. Our server didn’t check up on us or refill our waters. I’ve been here before and it’s never this bad so hopefully it’s just a one off.

Food was excellent.
Would have given the food a five star rating if they hadn’t change the bread pudding.
By changing the size of it the bread pudding was too dense. Then taking away some of the toppings it just was the same.

They should go by the saying

If it isn’t broke don’t fix it

The server Vanessa was friendly and helpful

We love this place but we’ve been disappointed in the menu change (crab stack is different and salmon nicoise no longer offered) and price increase.
I don’t think it will be our go-to easy spot anymore.

I eat here frequently, but this time I had a funny situation. I ordered a cocktail that had cucumber in it. It was pretty good so I ordered a second one. It didn't have any cucumber in it. When I asked the waitress why she said they only put it in the first one. I kind of laughed and told her that I paid the same for both drinks so they should be the same. I don't think she knew what to do.

I recently introduced friends to Bazille, which is one of my favorite places to dine. The food is great, as is the service. You can converse comfortably in an attractive setting. The menu offers a lovely array of dishes--something for everyone! The salads are the best I have ever eaten. The cocktails and desserts are remarkable. And the prices are quite reasonable, considering the quality ingredients.
