Great secret spot on the fourth floor of Nordstrom. Well-prepared, fresh food and great views. A hidden gem!
The food is delicious and the staff never rush you or make you feel uncomfortable that you are "taking too much time."
We noticed that an outdoor dining would be possible with some renovation. Would put it on par with the Cheesecake Factory and draw more people from the shopping center.
I love that you can order as little as you want. We wanted a snack and it was delicious. No one rushed us or judged us for how little we ordered.
Good food good value consistent always enjoy
We both had the special of the day, a crab, mango, and avocado salad. It had arugula too. Very yummy. I can always count on this restaurant to provide fresh and tasty food after shopping at the mall.
The salad and tacos were delicious!
Great salads. Excellent service.
Asked about The tacos I was told they were small. They were extremely small. They were the worst tacos I’ve ever tasted . I believe Taco Bell was more tastier. They were cold, hard cold shell. They were the consistency of minced cat food.
This restaurant is a good place to get together in a quiet atmosphere with lots of light and city views. The food is so-so for the price but you are really paying for the atmosphere.
Service was great-- we went for "girls day out" and took our 15 year old niece there for her birthday. The server overheard us wishing her a happy birthday and brought her a wonderful dessert at the end of the meal as a surprise. A very nice touch.
convenient place for lunch while shopping at Westfield Centre.
I love Cafe Bistro! I come to San Francisco every January for the JP Morgan Healthcare Conf and Cafe Bistro is my go to restaurant every single time. Never had a bad meal, service is always kind, courteous and efficient, nice ambiance and great location.
Great place to go on a rainy day - one of my favourite meet-up spots with friends! Try their specials - they’re always good! :)
We often have lunch here after seeing a movie at Century 9. Just as comfortable and quiet as "under the dome" but less expensive. Lunch today was good, but the server was lacking. The waitress brought us the wrong check, but didn't notice. When we were presented with the credit card check to sign, it was for a higher amount. We questioned the discrepancy and instead of fessing up or offering to check, the waitress just kept repeating, "this is the correct order." When I finally asked her to show us the check she had originally presented (and we had paid, based on) to us, she explained that she originally had given us the wrong check. If she's said that in the first place, we wouldn't have had a problem. As it is, because she tried to sneak it by us, her tip was based on the check we were originally presented (which was lower).
Nice experience. Very good food & friendly staff. Celebrated my son's engagement!!
Our server was terrible
Food and ambience are great...they could add a few more vegetarian options. Service was very mediocre...I think it was our particular server ...completely spaced out!
I love the Service almost as much as the Food! Great selection of top shelf Liquor with fantastic
I haven't eaten here in years, but it seemed a good choice for lunch with a friend and her young daughter before taking in a Nutcracker matinee. The hostess and server were excellent and attentive. My salad was scrumptious and the 8-yr-old's grilled cheese, fries and grapes looked delicious. We were very happy. I will be coming back to this gem more often.
The service was very slow, but the friendliness of the servers offset that, and the food - especially the deviled eggs starter and the seared scallops & risotto entree - were very good.
Crowded on Sat night causing service to be slow and food served lukewarm. Hostesses spent too much time chatting to each other
My partner and I came to this restaurant every time we visited SF which was about every other month for business. I lost my partner a few months ago and this was my first time back to SF since his passing and I was revisited our favorite "haunts" which was bittersweet. I expressed the situation in the "Notes" to the restaurant. Louis greeted me and said my request of a window table had been met and it was being cleared. After have a beautiful meal, as always here, I was just waiting for my bill and my server advised that my meal had been comped by the restaurant. Louis came over a few moment later and said he hoped everything was OK....through my teary eyes I complimented him and thanked him. Total class and very impressed.
Quiet place to enjoy yummy Prime Rib Dip! Clam chowder was excellent. Good value for the price paid. Just sorry we didn’t order dessert.
There was an ample amount of food provided. It was delicious and didn’t disappoint. The crab bisque had a bite to the flavor which made for a tasty soup. The cafe is great for lunch and dinner
It's a great place for a meal while shopping downtown.
We really always enjoy going to The Bistro Cafe at Nordstrom’s San Francisco Center.......food is consistently good and
it is extreme convenient as well as a pleasant setting. Today’s meal was once again wonderful, but the restaurant was extremely busy and the service was exceptionally poor. Hopefully once the holiday season is past, the service level will markedly return to it’s stellar self!
Food was fresh, service professional, and drinks refreshing. Not rushed and able to relax and have a wonderful lunch and conversation.
With the late lamented Cupola Italian restaurant closed now, the Bistro seemed like the best available restaurant in the Westfield area prior to a show at the Warfield since we parked at Metreon.
With rather sparse decor, it's not a visual knockout like the nearby Neimann-Marcus rotunda, but we did have a nice view looking up Powell St.
Service was attentive, food was timely and well prepared, and three of us with drinks, appetizers and mains got out of there for just about $100 before tip, which is cheaper than most of the places I eat at up here.
