Had a very good experience at this location. I made a reservation but we arrived 30 minutes late. They still had our table ready and waiting for us, it was on Monday afternoon. I would definitely go back,

The shrimp pasta noodle was not cook well, my friend and I had bad gagging after consumption. Dessert was good.

Service was not so good, asking for napkin two times, never came... and the server always looks busy and walk around. Wondering why?

Over all, we like the previous Nordstrom cafe, with divider and quieter, and wish they will have more friendly server. Won’t recommend to friends and families.

If you've never been to a Nordstrom restaurant before, it's an unexpected surprise to find fine dining in a department store. This delivers on the promise of a fine dining experience in the sense of well-executed food, good ingredients, and good service. However, there are caveats. The restaurant space is small, which means the tables get crammed together and the space between them is not great. The view outside the restaurant is women's clothing on one and the outside mall area by REI on the other. As others have noted - salt and pepper shakers, cream, and sugar, even a side of bread and butter, are all by request - if you don't ask for it, you don't get it. The food - I will totally come back for the bread pudding and the banana split, but skip the lamb argue with gnocchi. The number of gnocchi and flatbread pieces compared the amount of ragu was small - I had ragu left over once I ate all the gnocchi and flatbread. Service was prompt, polite, and consistent; we felt well attended by our server.

Been wanting to visit here for a long time. So Valentines Day was a good excuse. Had their special dinner which was excellent. It’s very unique to look our over the Nordstrom sales floor. The service was excellent. Want to go back during happy hour, where the drink prices are more reasonable.

We enjoyed Bazille for Valentine's Day, ordering the prix fixe special menu. The service is always stellar - we were well taken care of, seated immediately with our reservation (highly recommended). Our meal of halibut (cooked perfectly - and the risotto was amazing) and aged rib-eye was fit for a romantic meal. The restaurant was filled with couples (old and young) and families. It's a great choice for a meal at the mall when you're looking for good food, not fast food. They have a nice bar, and good rotating choices for happy hour.

For a place inside a department store, you wouldn't think the food would be worth mentioning, but Bazille is consistently a great choice, with a creative menu that is nicely prepared and served with reasonable prices. Bonus - you can use your Nordstrom card and earn points for your meal! We probably eat here once every couple of months, and it is consistently delicious, clean and with the Nordstrom service you are used to.

Our server was weird - not normally like that. We asked to hold the bun on a burger and we were told she couldn’t modify anything on the happy hour menu.... we just didn’t want the bun. The rest of the meal she ignored us - I barely got second drink out of her - and she looked pained and upset I needed something. We made a reservation and were courteous so I don’t know what we did... maybe she was just having a bad day. We’ll be back, this was a one time thing I hope.

I ordered the Caesar salad added chicken and avocado no croutons I requested a Parmesan crisp in addition to the one that comes with the salad and was told there was a dollar up charge I think that’s pretty crappy come on the salad is overpriced as it is in my opinion ...also more importantly the lettuce was limp and not fresh and the chicken was so dry and tasteless I could hardly eat the salad... I told the server I was unhappy with my chicken and he said “just to add extra salad dressing” that’s ridiculous... to not embarrass my friend I was with for our Christmas lunch, I added additional salad dressing...it was also served with no lemons. I was very disappointed today... not at all up to your usual standards...:(:(

Conveniently located in the Nordstroms at Lynnwood Mall. Reservations recommended, especially on weekends and holidays.

Crab Bisque is delicious and my favorite. The Margherita Pizza is sized for two, or one very hungry person.

Good wine list, with bottles and wine by the glass.

Watery Penne Alfredo with “glutenous stuck together” noodles, dry shortcake and water down drinks. Four well drinks were 10.00 each - rum and diet! Out of the goodness of their hearts they deducted the inedible penne dish and comped the dry shortcake. Just gross. WIll not be back. The picture is what I ate when I got home - a bologna sandwich!

What makes Bazille so special beside the quality food is that on Thursday you have a server that is the very best I have ever encountered and her name is Elsa. Between Elsa and William they make the restaurant shine.

We were at the Alderwood Mall and remembered there was an option for delicious lunch choices at the Nordstrom store. It lived up to expectations based on our Ottawa experiences. The crab bisque was wonderful with plenty of crab and a rich flavor. I had a salad from the daily sheet which included greens, strawberries (it is strawberry season in the Seattle area!), and coconut shrimp. I even saved enough room to share a warm chocolate chip cookie with vanilla gelato and salted caramels slices Wow!

Great quick stop for dinner, but I've also loved lunch here before. HH was great this time and the portions were generous and of good quality for the price. Not a huge fan of it being more open to the store post remodel, but still a nice environment.

NO SALT AND PEPPER!!

Really Nordstrom!! Went to Bazille, the menu has not changed in four years! I ordered off the kids menu and proceeded to ask for some salt for my fries and they bring me rock salt in a ramequin, it was the size of pretzel salt! When I asked for regular salt I was told that “they no longer carry it because it takes too much time for restaurant personnel to refill the containers”!!! Unbelievable! All I wanted was bit of seasoning for the bland food I was eating! Complain to mgmt. so they can elevate to the higher level on this. This is absolutely ridiculous and silly! Update your menu for the demographic that you are serving and for gods sake put regular salt and pepper back on the tables! If you go there, please complain to mgmt!

I've eaten here several times as it is convenient to meet friends at Nordstrom. The food is very rich, dressings for salads very sweet (I always ask for dressing on the side as they tend to over do the dressing in general). I think the quality of the food itself is good, but they need to cut back on the sugar, salt and oil because it drowns out the true flavors of the food. Even the bread served with the crab and mango salad (mango was little tiny bits and barely discernable) was drenched in butter. These things can be easily fixed; time will tell if they decide to do it. My friend wouldn't order the Caesar this time as last time it was swimming in dressing. And I did once order the Salmon Nicoise salad and didn't have the dressing on the side ...that plus the salt and butter made for a very unpleasant afternoon of digestive consequences, which is not the norm for me. I'm careful with what I order and make sure anything that can be ordered on the side, is. Again, good food concepts are in place and conveniently located inside Nordstrom!

It is very noisy with fast beat music playing too loud. Many of the new food choices are often too spicy and just odd enough that it limits the choices for the average person. I did pick halibut and dips but the breading on the halibut was soggy and too seasoned. Not happy with these changes.

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! :)
