I always eat at Bazille when I shop at Rideau and even just going for a good meal with my husband. The food is always good and I love the crab bisque!

The service was fine and the food was good. However, I found $18 for a 9 oz. glass of wine exorbitant.

Bazille has a lovely and diverse menu and are ready to accommodate any dietary restrictions. We were there on a Wednesday evening and were able to sit on the patio and enjoy the warm weather. I look forward to the next time.

I took my grandson to Bazille as a treat for his 16th birthday and we both enjoyed it very much - food fresh and delicious, great service, nice environment. One of my favourite places for special occasions.

Excellent, tasty fresh meals. We all had salads - Asian chicken, shrimp and crab - and we all found our meals to be very tasty and well made. Perfect portion size too. Service was excellent. The only downside is that when the restaurant is full, it’s very noisy so not the best for a business meal.

Ben did his best to offer a vegan option for me. I was disappointed that the pita, olives and hummus was no longer available and all salads require me to request the removal of meat or cheese.
The salad I had was very tasty, though and my friend enjoyed her quiche special of the day.

You need some turnover changing creative menus. Many items have been there too long & don't meet what diners are looking for.

They have updated their menu however have also updated their pricing. Seems a little high priced for the food. The wine prices have also gone up. 2 glasses of wine for $46.00 when a bottle is $48.00 seems a little excessive.

Bazille is close to the National Arts Centre so a good place to go before a show. It would be really nice if there were at least one vegetarian option on the menu. We shared 2 starters which were delicious but the portions were very small. The wine list is very good but I find $18 for a glass of Malbec to be excessive.

Pan roasted chicken was disappointing this time. Dry and the sweetness in the dressing was overpowering. Restaurant could benefit from better management to make sure service is more professional.

Our Server was excellent. Food very good but chicken was a little bland on Caesar salad. Strawberry lemonade delicious.
But if took a while to get a nice table which not in the back corner, even though we had reservation.

My second visit in one week - I really like this restaurant. My only problem, on the second visit the server was not up to standard. Perhaps she was new on the job and needs more training. By contrast, the server on my first visit, Justine, was excellent. Personable, efficient and helpful.

Food was horrible. Chicken in the salad was dry and the burger was like a charred piece of cardboard. Never going back, and it's too bad, because I used to really like it. Maybe they were having a bad night?

Service was excellent. Nice cocktail menu and bartender, Adam I think, was great.
Food was okay on average. Salads were good with nice light dressing. Steak frite was excellent with steak cooked nicely and fries nice and crispy with the right amount of salt. Lobster mac and cheese was not great and would definitely not recommend to anyone. Not much lobster, crumb topping too light and tasteless, not cheesy enough and tasteless too. Chocolate cake is large and good to share but didn't taste fresh.
Ambience not great for a nice dinner. Too bright overall and just no real vibe. Would go back if in Nordstrom or to avoid the food court at the mall but not make it a destination.
