    Usually it’s great to eat at Nordstrom’s but it was just ok. The service was slow, they never offered another cup of coffee, it just seemed like an ordinary restaurant, not Nordstrom’s. It seems old and needs redecorating.

    Simple salad with grilled chicken. Chicken was underdone so I asked that it be cooked longer. Chicken came out the second time the same. Waited 20 minutes for no change. Server was very busy visiting with other employees. We've always had a great experience here Not today.

    Worst service we've had in decades. We told the server we'd be sharing a salad and then sharing a chicken main dish. Both were brought to our table at the same time, one for me and one for my friend. When I pointed out the error, the server said she'd put the chicken under the heat lamp. I asked her if that wouldn't dry out the chicken and she said these were special lamps that wouldn't dry out food. Well, of course the chicken was dry. Later when the server asked how the chicken was, I told her it was dry and she nodded and walked away. She never cleared our plates. The people who brought the next course had to do that before they could place our food on the table. I told the server it was my friend's birthday, but no candle or any indication of a birthday was forthcoming when my friend's dessert was served.

    Servers are order takers and not customer service oriented. You order, and you get your food. The tables are set to be without anything, no salt or pepper or anything resembling an experience that reflects the cost of the food. The food is fine, it's just the overall experience is lackluster. And for two salads and two coffees, it took a very long time between ordering and service.

    Very good food & service with a varied menu and reasonable prices. My wife and I enjoyed the crab & avocado salad as well as the chicken Caesar salad. The side order of French fries arrived cold, but was replaced with a hot & tasty serving. The waitperson was most attentive and replenished our beverage glasses frequently. Bazille is a good choice for lunch when at the Stanford Shopping Center.

    I had a lime shrimp salad- $18 and crab bisque. Bisque was good- nothing special. Shrimp were tough and very over cooked. No lime flavor at all.

Prices are reasonable, particularly for this conveniently located restaurant in Nordstrom. Bazille is an excellent choice for a meal when at the Stanford Shopping Center.

    Is wild caught salmon supposed to look so orange? I am not sure but I added salmon to my caesar salad. It looks different than fish I have say at Swan Oyster Depot. Anyhow, my salmon came nice and orange like the orange worn by Miami Dolphins. Color aside, I know there are no parasites in the salmon I was served because it was cooked well done aka rock solid. What I enjoyed most about my salad was the quality of greens used. I don't find wilted old veggies in my bowl of salad. So big thumbs up. Place can get noisy when families bring their children. Service is spotty. Some waiter/waitress are more attentive than others. My waitress brought me an arnold palmer with a spoon to stir. So I got tea at the top and then lemonade at the bottom.

    We went for dinner on a Friday night (labor day weekend) so the patrons were a bit scarce which suited us just fine as we prefer a quiet environment. That said, I also happened to have lunch that day with friends, arriving at 1:00pm and the noise level was much different. Both times, service and food were great.

    As is, the menu has absolutely nothing a vegan can eat. I had them take the cheese off 2 starter salads and put them together which turned out to be ok. I wish they would have more possibilities. Also, we arrived early for lunch at 11, and that gave us almost an hour of relative quiet go be able to converse.

    My friend and I shared a bottle of wine and treated ourselves to dessert to escape the heat, but the A/C died right before we got there—they got it up and running before we left thank goodness—our server was so nice and our desserts were small but VERY tasty!

    My mom and I enjoyed a mid-week lunch together after a doctor appointment at Stanford. She ordered the halibut and fries, which was absolutely delicious. I ordered the small plate brussels sprouts and cilantro lime chicken tacos. The brussels were really tasty. The tacos were just ok. They were two super small crunchy tacos with ground chicken. I could have made better at home. Our server was very attentive. The one complaint about the atmosphere is that the tile floor nearest to the kitchen is so slippery that my mom nearly fell. We had to be very careful about how we exited our booth.
