I enjoyed my lunch here very much but I was disappointed to be seated near the hostess’s podium even though I had made a reservation for a table. I envisioned is seated in the main seating area and not near the display for skinny pants.

Mediocre. They forgot or misplaced my order with only a few tables occupied. So it took far longer than it should. They never apologized or really addressed it, until they were delivering food to the table beside me - someone who came in and ordered long after I did. They food once it came was bland with cold vegetables. They never offered any type of compensation for the mistake. Not the best Nordstrom.

The downtown Nordstrom Grill is a hidden gem. Prices for standard entrees are about 30% less then most downtown restaurants. The food is very fresh and plentiful. Menu items include a classic Cobb salad (excellent), burgers, various chicken dishes, sandwiches and soups. It would have been nice to include a pasta dish. The wine selection is small, but adequate. My husband likes free refills on his root beer. Cocktails are also available. Seating provided at booths, tables and the counter in the bar. I recommend getting a reservation, especially when holiday shopping kicks in.

Need more marketing knowledge on menu items. Calamari was tough. Aioli sauce is the usual. Not chili dip. Waitress insisted I had thousand island dressing on my crab louis when I asked for some extra to compensate for no dressing. Tap water was terrible bought in a glass milk bottle container. Even after I asked for a lemon to help cover the fluoride taste. Will never come back. Will never come to shop here either. After being a customer for 50 years.

I tend to go the Grill 80% of the time I am in SEA. I LOVE the crab bisque! This particular visit wasn't as enjoyable as usual due to the 4 LOUD women to my left and the business meeting of 2 men to my right. A little bit TOO NOISY. The grilled halibut with spring pea and asparagus risotto was delicious! The soup special, French lentil soup was tasty except for the grade of sausage used. The featured Key Lime pie looked way better than it tasted.

Food was delicious. Service and ambiance was so-so. The food came out late and server seemed flustered or overwhelmed. I would only recommend for a quick lunch while shopping or for a brief drop in.

When one makes a reservation one should not have to wait for too long and when one asks for a booth not a table in the reservation one would expect that.
Neither happened, it was disappointing.

The waitress was rushing us big time. Up to coming out to our table with the goal to remove plates and counting how many bites are left. My business lunch was interrupted by her many times, and she wasn't accomodating to our need to be able to talk but she made us to stop and listen to her talking. Not very professional.

Great place to give your shopped out feet a rest and enjoy a meal. The menu has something for everyone. The peppered steak salad (offered on the daily sheet) offers a generous portion of steak served over endive. Roasted potatoes, tomato and blue cheese fill out the plate. Little know fact: the Grill also has one of the best burgers in town.

The Nordstrom Grill has THE best crab bisque I have ever had. Their grilled vegetable salad is wonderful with the balsamic dressing and the Honeydew List cocktail (featured this month) is to die for. Best lunch in downtown Seattle!

It must of been this particular night, but we were a party of 6 and there were only a total of 3 other smaller parties in the entire restaurant. It took over 45 mins for our food to come out!

I ordered the salmon and when it finally arrived, the outside was over charred, yet the inside was cool and still raw! The waiter legitimately asked me "oh, do you want it cooked well done?" What!?! Umm, I would like it cooked!!

Usually, Nordstrom restaurants are great, so I'm assuming this was just an off night.

I enjoy the fact that it is one of the few restaurants around that don't have music blaring in the background. There were televisions by the bar but they were low and we couldn't hear them. Trying to find a location where you can get good food and have a conversation is rare.

You just can't miss at Nordstrom Grill with the crab bisque and burrata salad. The pile of pesto on the salad was so smooth and flavorful. I needed a very quick lunch between a conference ending and catching the train to the airport. Looking for a more relaxed option than street or fast food, this was perfect. The quick service was greatly appreciated!

After my last visit that was not to the service level that I expected, I would try it one more time. This last visit will be my LAST visit . No service!!They had one server and a bar tender. I was seated in the bar area and the hostess had to take my order. No greeting ,no nothing. The hostess delivered my overpriced fish and chips then I had to ask the hostess for the check.No help ,no service! Why not just close for dinner?

Don't book the last reservation of the night. The kitchen closes 15 min later. We were RUSHED beyond belief from the moment we sat down. It was stressful and very off brand for Nordstrom. I've never felt so much pressure to order eat and pay before. Really just unacceptable. If the kitchen closes at 8p don't take last reservation at 7:45.

I have been a customer of the Nordstrom Grill since it opened, which is to say quite a while.
With the exception of a special occasion, you don't keep coming back to a restaurant for any other reasons other than food and service. This explains why you often see some of the same people there for lunch year after year.
The menu changes some with the seasons but there are enough "old faithfuls" that make selecting your entree a dependable and rewarding choice.
The crab bisque, the Cobb salad and the French dip are great. And when they bring back the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich if you don't try it, you're making a huge mistake
But the best secret on the menu may be the burger. I think it's one of the best two burgers in downtown Seattle and that includes all the steak houses.
Lastly, unless you plan on lunch at around 11:15, make a reservation. It gets busy fast.
See if you can get in Cindy or Sylvia's section.
