We had a very nice dinner. The timing of the service was a bit off. We had hoped to enjoy our cocktails before receiving food, but our starters arrived long before our drinks. (And we ordered food after our cocktails were ordered.) Good was good.

Nice place. Friendly competent service. The food is just ordinary and grossly over salted. There appears to be a lot of regular diners. We won't be back.

Food and service was excellent. The only thing I have to complain about is the area that they set up for outdoor seating - some fly problem and the most uncomfortable old rackety chairs.

I’ve been to Bazin’s for a few special occasions and they never disappoint. Everything is top notch. This time I tried the crispy oysters and they were delicious! My filet melted in my mouth. It was our anniversary and they gave us complimentary flourless chocolate cake, this is the second time they have given us something complimentary on our anniversary. We can’t wait to go back.

There is never a time that we dine at Bazin’s that it is an all memorable. The service the food and of course the company of other diners made this one extra special. Patrick was kind enough to stop at our table when I let him know it was my dear friends first time dining at the restaurant. To say that they’ll be back and they’ll bring members of their family and other friends is an understatement. Sea bass and strawberry shortcake or something we’re all craving well into today! Until the next time, Patrick and Julie’

The creative pairings and perfect preparation continues at Bazins. What made he evening extra special was the service by Bela! My husband had the Veal Milanese - both crispy and tender served under a delicately dressed mound of greens. I had the gazpacho which was bold and crunchy and topped with avocado and shrimp - might be my new favorite! And the filet with blue cheese potato au gratin never disappoints.

The food was marvelous. The servers gracious and helpful. The food runners were a bit confused regarding who was receiving what, but we figured it out. As might be expected, the noise level increased as more and more diners arrived. It was definitely worth the drive from Gaithersburg!

Everything was excellent, but as a key lime pie lover, who had tried it everywhere I can find it, this was a pretty bad version. Not much lime, thick pasty filling, and the coconut macaroon crust kind of ruined it. I would replace this on the dessert menu with something else, or adjust the recipe.

Even on their patio this restaurant is too noisey. The tuna tartar and the halbut were very godd as was the Chilain sea bass. The waiter neglected to ask if we wantred more coffee but otherwise the service was good. We would go back to this restaurant on nights other than Friday or Saturday,

Went to Bazin's to celebrate my half-birthday. January birthdays generally mean snow, sleet, freezing rain or all of the above, so I started the half-birthday tradition a few years ago to avoid all that. Reserved a table outside to take advantage of uncharacteristically not hot or humid weather. Noise level wasn't an issue. I got the crispy oysters and the blue cheese flat iron steak with herb fries. My wife had the scallops and shrimp linguine. My brother-in-law had the potato and onion ravioli and the sea bass. My sister-in-law had the veal Milanese. Everyone loved their dishes. For dessert, everyone but me had the strawberry shortcake. I had the fried apple pie which turned out to be very disappointing. I don't recommend ordering it. Service was very good, especially our server Jonathan. Anyway, it's a really good restaurant and this wasn't our first time.

The food was fine and the place was very relaxed. My primary complaint is the speed with which the staff seemed to move us through our meal. I don't think I've ever been in a sit down restaurant where the food and drinks came so fast and furious. We were seated at 7:55 and the table was cleared by 8:45. Appetizers arrived literally within 3 minutes of ordering; and the appetizer plates were swapped out for the main within 2 minutes of being finished. It was a little disconcerting. It's not such a fine line between neglectful and over-zealous service. Just let your diners take a few breathes between bites.

Since Covid restrictions have been lifted, Bazin's took full advantage of that by adding many more tables and therefore diners to its outdoor option. Unfortunately, that condition was not conducive to a pleasant dining experience. At 8:30 PM on a Friday, the decibel level may have been 9. The waiter was running around like a chicken without a head. He checked in for a second to see if we wanted another glass of wine and how the food was and that was about it. The food was good but couldn't be enjoyed because the noise was unbearable. We won't be returning any time soon.

This place is always outstanding!! The restaurant wasn’t even a third full and dinner took a long time to receive. At least an hour. You know what would have helped….. BREAD!!! Please start serving fabulous bread again. BTW, no restaurant is using the COVID excuse for not serving bread any longer. (that is what our waiter told us) Always delicious food & desserts!!

The crispy branzino and glazed miso sea bass were lovely. I ordered one and my husband ordered the other and we ended up trading. Good sized portions and a nice mature atmosphere. Attentive and friendly service. Can’t wait to go back.

From the moment that you walk into the door until the time you finally leave, Bazin’s is an experience you won’t forget! A long time favorite that keeps getting better, it was the perfect choice for a birthday and Father’s Day celebration. Patrick and Julie and their staff extraordinare will have you thinking about your next visit before you finished your first course!
