My mom and I had a great lunch at Bazille this weekend! We changed it up and ordered the French onion soup along with the chicken tacos appetizer both of which were delicious along with our staple....the fries with the kalamata aioli. We usually get the chicken club with the french green beans and fries, so it was fun to try something new! The tacos had a crunchy shell made in house and were the perfect little bite to go with our soup. Our server could not have been nicer and more attentive. He really did a fantastic job making sure we had everything we needed and all was tasting good. Another great meal there...we'll be back again soon! :)

Food and drinks awesome / must try “The Billionaire” cocktail and heirloom tomatoes w/burrata!
Wait staff and chefs very lovely
Only distraction is no wall between store and restaurant - if it matters, you can sit by the window to have a bit of distance from the store but other than that, one of my fave places to visit

I love the fresh, new decor and the fact that the restaurant is open to the store. The menu has slightly fewer offerings (but still that signature "Asian Chicken Salad" we all love!) at slightly higher price points. Hint: Nordy ... You are not a foodie destination. Your wine shouldn't be $12-14/glass; you salads shouldn't be upwards of $18 each. It's Lynnwood, baby! That said, I will go back again and again. Just not sure where the heightened level of "Nordy Food Pride" is coming from.

Was able to get seated right away once we arrived. Fabulous server and very attentive. In love with the Cilantro, Lime Shrimp Salad!! My go-to whenever I come to lunch!! I know, I should branch out but when you perfect something so well it’s hard to venture out!! :-)

Maybe quiet classical music. Not a sports bar feel. Service and food were great. Love to have quiet conversations with those Im with.

We were seated immediately, avoiding a 20-minute wait, thanks to a reservation via OpenTable. But service was slow. All we ordered was soup.

Seating was reduced due to a remodel (several booths replaced with a bar), and the wall between the restaurant and Nordstrom’s store was removed. This ruins the ambiance of the restaurant, as now the shoppers are right next to you if you are sitting along the south wall of the restaurant.

This is a very good restaurant with consistently good food and service. Recently renovated with a more open look and a new bar on the end of the dining room opposite the kitchen. All around a nice experience.

I LOVR the vice of Bazille. The first time I went I ordered the Korean Braised Beef dish with Kimchi, and it was heavenly. I loved it so much, I returned with a friend in tow and suggested she try it. It was just okay, kind of disappointing. The beef was almost crispy and overly well done. Next time, I will definitely try another dish.

Very disappointed overall in the menu change with more odd and spicy dishes. However, the most disappointing items were the changes to the caesar salad, which is now big wedges of romaine thickly coated with dressing and croutons that are all mush, and the very the favorite White Chocolate Bread Pudding. It was $10 but not only worth the price but a main reason to go to the Cafe now that has been reduced, not only in price, but to a small 1'ish high little, almost soggy, rectangle. Even though the ingredients are the same it does not taste or present itself the same at all. Overall, this used to be a place that I was glad to go to, lunch and dinners and proudly introduce my friends to but now, I not so. Every time, since the menu change, I have been disappointed so it will not longer by my "go to" place to eat. Sorry, Nordstrom's but you struck out with this change.

The quality of the food was just not that good. I liked the old Nordstrom’s cafe menu. He Caesar salad was overdressed and for cafe quick dining, it is not conducive to have to cut your lettuce. The French fries were like warm and not crispy.

our lunch was a huge disappointment
. The Bistro Club as always been wonderful. In this one the bacon was nearly raw.. The fries were cold when served. When we asked the to replace the bacon, they took the bacon from both of our sandwiches and put it on a plate. Then they microwaved it and brought it back on the same plate for us to divide it. The service was surly. This has been my favorite restaurant until this time. I hope changing the menu hasn't lowered the quality!

The recent menu change has left a lot to be desired. I used to dine here at least once a week when it was the cafe. I have since changed my dining habits.
