Though I come here ALOT, and I’ve never had a bad experience, tonight was my birthday and it was a disappointment even though I noted it on open table. Mediocre service. No candle on dessert. Nothing special. Sorry I picked it for my special ocassion

We dined early before a concert, so had the dining room almost to ourselves. Our waiter was skilled and courteous. Our dinners and “nibbles” were delicious! Best of all, though, our waiter brought us two half portions of dessert on separate plates, since we had told him we planned to split the dessert. That was a lovely bit of extra effort and much appreciated.

As tired parents of young children who rarely get out, this was exactly the kind of dining experience we wanted! It has a neighborhood feel with a lot of regulars, just the right balance of elegant and comfortable. The wine list is extensive, service very attentive, and the food is SUPERB. The beet salad was so unique and perfectly balanced, and the potato-onion ravioli with lobster was unbelievable! We each had fish and both were cooked perfectly. My only issue was my branzino was a bit bland, could have used more sauce. I'd been here years ago for a work retreat and party and also found the "event food" wonderful and the space just right for such an event. We'll be back!

The meal was as expected: very good. Both our appetizers and main courses were well prepared and very tasty. We each took home some entree's to finish later. Being a Saturday night, the restaurant was very busy and subsequently loud. Louder than I like. But it's a great place to eat, a neighborhood gem.

Service was exceptional. I've never had anyone as attentive as my waiter was at refilling my water (I drink a LOT of water).
Complimentary raisin bread was warm, delicious, and filling.
I got the salmon salad which was yummy and large. Nothing extraordinarily creative from the culinary perspective, which is fine with me.
My friend got the Charm City Eggs Benedict. I had a bite and it was also great, with lump crab meat.
Parking can be a challenge, even with the (tiny) parking garage next door.

Our experience at Bazin's was amazing. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. The only warning would be that some of the portion sizes are significantly smaller than others, so you have to be careful when deciding how much food you want. Overall, it was a great restaurant!

We came for our anniversary and expected some acknowledgement as we put that in our reservation. No one made mention and it might as well have just been a regular evening out. Food and service were good, but nothing special and we didn't feel like we mattered. On the way out, I mentioned that we had come for our anniversary and were disappointed that nothing was said. The host said, "We used to have cards but I guess we ran out." The next night we went to Cooper's Hawk and had the opposite experience. We were celebrated and felt very welcomed. Guess where we will be celebrating special events - NOT at Bazin's.

We have been going to Bazin's for special occasions for several years now. It is never disappointing. I had the sea bass for the first time and I will be getting it as my "go to" there. All of the food we've had there has been great. The wait staff is always very good and doesn't pressure you on time or make you feel they need the table. It is always clean and neat. The only down side is the wine prices are quite high but overall a great place to eat!

We had lunch for my husband’s birthday. Bazin’s never disappoints. The 3 course lunch had branzino nicely prepared over a rice pilaf. Appetizer salad had array of veggies and lightly dressed. Chocolate flourless cake was creamy and light and so wonderful. The crab cake sliders were delicious too.

Bazin's is a favorite for many reasons-terrific ambiance, interesting menu with great food, knowledgeable staff. Our latest experience tops the list! Delicious, and our waiter was perfect-there when we needed something, but not at all intrusive. A special skill. Thanks, Bazin's, for another great evening!

Service very good, not crowded so don't know how it is when busy. Liked the tables, chairs, decor.
Asked for salad with dressing on the side - waiter got it right but don't think kitchen did. Dressing was in the salad - too oily, also. Not sure why so many restaurants can't get this right - it's a simple request.
Didn't get bread until well into our meal - not sure if it meant to be toasted, but it was dry and curled up a bit - ended up by tasting stale.

This review is for a Saturday night dinner. The food was excellent. We had the appetizer of crispy garlic shrimp in a cream sauce and the filet with broccolini and bleu cheese scalloped potatoes. The filet was perfectly grilled. The restaurant was lively and the lighting a little dark (not in a bad way). Great place for a date or small group dinner.

I thought the food was a little overpriced for the quantity, but again it was excellent. I’d go again.
