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.

As always the food is outstanding but the service pales in comparison. Always a new crop of employees who ate in the front of the restaurant. Service is not attentive enough

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.

Good food but too noisy. Suggest a little sound deadening on floors, walls, or ceiling.

Bazin's is our favorite place to dine in Vienna - and when they offer a three-course meal for $38 it becomes a go-to restaurant ... well worth the drive from Arlington!

The experience was ok but definitely not worth the price we paid. Overall the food was average, and there were some issues with execution. I ordered the filet mignon which tasted fine, but was unevenly cooked with some sections perfectly medium rare and others medium well. An appetizer of ricotta of figs featured toast that was tough and clearly made from stale bread. However, when we brought it to our server's attention, he stated that it was normal and due to the oil the chefs used (unfortunately, it was definitely not normal). Fine - small detail, but he didn't offer to replace the toast. Service was poorly paced and our server was often unavailable. Our dinner (only my husband and I) went on for 2 hours despite our attempts to get the attention of the server. Needless to say, we won't return.

We both got the same thing on this our second visit because I'd had it on our first visit and we both loved it--a glass of CS Substance cab and the veal Milanese.

My wife had the "signature" Maple-Miso Chilean Sea Bass and pronounced it excellent. I had the Veal Milanese and it was about the best I've ever had. I'm of Italian heritage and we eat lots of Italian food (I grew up on it!) so I know this dish well. We each had a glass of SUBSTANCE CABERNET SAUVIGNON red wine, based on waiter's recommendation, in turn based on our expressed preferences--it was very nice. Restaurant is relatively informal but food is excellent.

We had two birthdays with us so in addition to noting that on this reservation I called. Was assured it would be taken care of and they missed by half. One of the birthdays was celebrated...so close but so far!

As for table service we asked on multiple occasions for specific items, like pepper for the salads. 3 of 4 gave up and ate while we watched the server come into the section at least twice without remembering the ask. Need to teach servers to scan their entire section of what is probably 3 or 4 tables; could’ve saved us from waiting.

As always the food was wonderful!!

The food was excellent. The meal would have been more enjoyable if the table next to us didn’t have a dog seated on the chair and eating from the table. Service dogs are important but they shouldn’t be allowed to eat from the table.

We were practically the only people there, and yet it took over an hour for them to take our orders. They messed up an order, and the food was lame. Bread was served cold and hard, like toast left out, and my salmon salad was little more than chopped romaine with no dressing.

My wife and i had a fantastic anniversary dinner at Bazin's. Enjoyed a drink at the bar first, with a lovely bartender. For dinner, I had crispy oysters and halibut, while my wife had the branzino. For dessert we had the salted caramel. Each dish was excellent, with the halibut being a stand out. Service was friendly, helpful, efficient, without trying too hard. Bravissimo!
