    One of my favorite restaurants and such a surprising find within a Nordstrom store! The whole experience is delightful from start to finish. Truly AMAZING menu that changes all the time. Full bar with very creative cocktails. Wine Wednesdays are 1/2 off a great selection of wine bottles. Quality of the food is outstanding - extremely fresh seafood and superb freshness. DELICIOUS menu items! I've never been disappointed. Their crab mango avocado salad is one of my favorites. Never get tired of it. Their wine list is fantastic and they make a fabulous martini, too! Highly recommend.

    Went to Eataly to check it out on Monday. Thought it wouldn’t be too busy. Wrong! Everywhere was packed. All local restaurants packed. Looked on OpenTable and found this place in Nordstrom on third floor and tables available. Big surprise. Chicken noodle soup was excellent. Tons of chicken and great flavor. Happy hour is 2:30-5. Had the chicken tacos. Delicious. Crunchy tortillas, fresh ingredients. Wife had the turkey and bacon club. Again fresh and tasty. Fries were also very good. We said afterward that we would come back. Seems odd with all the great places but it was very enjoyable and reasonable. Try it!

    Had a great dinner at Bazille. We started off with two soups. I ordered the bisque and my friend had the clam chowder - both were great. We decided on the calamari and bruschetta - excellent options. Finished off with the salmon salad. The salmon was perfectly grilled and was a nice size portion. Service was great. Our waitress was very friendly and answered all of our questions. Will definitely return!

    Everything was enjoyable except for the server. Was only checked on once, was never offered refill on drinks- had to ask. Brought us the bill before we were finished eating and before we asked. Never happened to us before at this restaurant. Felt rushed and didn’t want to stay any longer afterward. The prices have continued to go up yet the portions and quality of food haven’t increased or improved much. We’ve been here more than a dozen times, but likely will be trying other restaurants for our family dining.

    First time dining there and the food was absolutely incredible! My wife and I shared the Roast Beef Dip with a side salad, and she had a cup of the lemon chicken and rice soup. Also had the bread pudding for dessert. Our server, Asia, was the best! She was very personable, great sense of humor, and she definitely took care of us. This will definitely be a place we'll be dining at frequently, and the prices are very reasonable (especially for the quality of food).

    The quality of the food was poor at best. Calamari pieces were too small, tasted fishy and overcooked. Burger was dry and flavorless. Turkey club sandwich also had a fishy note. Tomatoes in salad were not ripe. Kids pasta was oily and flavorless. We have enjoyed this restaurant in the past, but would not go back based on this experience.

    Our server La-Keesha was awesome! Attentive without being pushy, and she was very quick to refill drinks. She brought the check quickly and gave us a very nice dining experience. The food is great, as usual. We split the Marguerita pizza, which was plenty for the two of us.

    The restaurant has undergone a refresh during Covid and it has been expanded. However, Bazille used to be a hidden gem. Unfortunately, the “food portion police” have been hired and their amazing lime/shrimp salad was half the size it was and did not retain the flavor it should have had. Bad/hard Gnocchi, but the French Dip was good. Service was slow due to staff shortages.

    Hidden gem. Enjoyed a salad and pizza for a quick lunch - always fresh and delicious. Add the gratis chocolate mint sticks as a tasty treat for dessert. Great service too. Plus making a reservation on Open Table is an added bonus.
