It seems the food quality was not up to par this trip. I’m sure it was just a fluke as usually it is very consistent.

Nice atmosphere with a view of the city from the top of Nordstroms. Not too expensive for a business dinner when getting away from the noise of the conference at Moscone.

We were generations for lunch before seeing a matinee at the Golden Gate Theater. The food came out fast and it was quiet enough for conversation. The location is great - easy access from BART and then a quick walk to the theater. Pretty view out the window, too. I was happy to see the salmon Niçoise salad back on the menu. A very pleasant experience.

This is the perfect restaurant for lunch while doing an afternoon of shopping downtown. It has very good food, the wait staff is friendly and efficient, the decor of the restaurant is nice and clean, and there a nice views of the shopping area in San Francisco. The restroom just outside the restaurant in the Nordstrom store is very clean, which is a surprise for a public restroom in a department store.

The food quality was variable. The lemon chicken soup I had was too greasy and the caesar salad had way too much dressing. However, the tomato burrata salad was excellent.

My wife and I (big Nordstrom supporters from Seattle) were looking for a light lunch. I asked if I could substitute shrimp in the chicken tacos. The very good server checked with the kitchen and came back and said yes. The dish I received had two small but good tacos. The price for chicken tacos is $6.50. They charged me that full charge plus an add charge of $7.00 for the shrimp. This was far from the Nordstrom experience we customarily receive. I think the restaurant (and its customers) would be better served if they just said that substituting was not possible.

My friend and I lunched before the theater. The service was prompt and the waitress was mindful of a food allergy. The Salad Nicoise was delicious, followed by a delightful Creme Brulee - both were gluten-free. All the waiters and waitresses we met in the dining room were super friendly.

We have been going to Bazille before our matinee ballets for a couple of years. At first we had some disappointing service and food. But in the last two years, we have been pleased everytime we go. I am so happy to say this. The venue is very nice and the food is delicious.
Thank you for working on this.

We chose Bazille for a pre-show dinner. John, our server was excellent, attentive and knowledgeable. Because I am Celiac, I require gluten-free food. I was disappointed that there were only two gluten-free items on the menu for me to choose. No soup, no appetizers. What restaurants don't seem to realize is that if they lose a "gluten-free" customer, they also lose everyone in the party, so a little more consideration to GF would be welcome. For thickening soups and sauces, just use corn-starch...that is gluten free.

Overall we enjoyed our meal, the wines were good, the food was tasty, the service was first class. We will consider Bazille the next time we come to San Francisco for a show, but I will be checking first to see if more Gluten-Free options have been added to the menu.

Bazille had recently become our go-to place for dinner before the theatre. This was our third visit in 6 months or less. Good cocktails, satisfactory food, convenient to the Golden Gate Theatre. This time however the bar was out of vermouth to make a Manhattan, my salad was delivered without the chicken I'd ordered, the French onion soup was over salted and ill-prepared such that the cheese was just a big glob, service was perfunctory. But worst of all, there were fruit flies buzzing the table. There's only one way that fruit flies find themselves to the 4th floor of Nordstrom: through the kitchen. Needless to say we will dine elsewhere before the theatre henceforth.

Our family (5) ate here before the theater and couldn’t been happier with the experience. Food was great and, even better, the service was terrific. My son has serious food allergies and it is often difficult to eat out safely. The manager, Jordan, and the kitchen staff were extremely helpful and my son was able to eat safely with confidence. That is not something we take for granted. Thank you, Bazille! (Nice cocktails too!)

If it gets too overcrowded around Union Square this is a place to have decent food in a more calm ambience. Behind the womenswear department im Nordstom on N4, a hidden positive surprise. Nice view over to the Union Square area. Food is Good, not 5 stars but good for a nice lunch.

Greeted and told to stand to one aide and wait. Seater came and asked if we had received a text? No We has a real reservation! He proceeds to take us to the far end of the restaurant into a loud and very unkept dining alcove! Terrible view, terrible service, terrible food! Ordered a special sandwich and the bread was BURNT! Salad was over dressed and to much fill with “won ton” strips that turn to glue with the dressing! Loud, zero service from our waitress! Including zero invitation for dessert!
