Great place to assure a good meal. A bit costly for the environment and food choices, but always very good.

Had a very nice lunch with my wife and a friend. I had the Shrimp and Crab Louis Salad. It was delicious. The shrimp were batter dipt and fried to perfection. And it is one of my pet peeves when eating shrimp out, that they leave the tails on, I was pleasently surprised to see that they took them off before cooking. I recommend the Grill to everyone!

Very disappointed this time! Server was abrupt and short with us. There were five of us and no one felt like it was a special experience. It’s normally our go-to place. Calamari was terrible. Burger was not cooked to temperature ordered. Friends specifically asked for “no pickle”...it was on the plate and pickle juice was on their burger. When their over done burger was remade it was also delivered with a pickle- they hate pickles! The grilled vegetable salad was mostly spinach - no plate appeal. Very plain.

The service was good but very, very slow. I am not sure if our waitress was the only one working but it sure seemed that way. I wanted to order tea because I was cold but she never came back until our meal was delivered so I sat and waited and looked for her instead of fully enjoying my time with my Mom.

Came in with high hopes. Menu looked creative. Impressive drink/wine menu. Both my salmon and my husband's burger was WAY overcooked and dry. Took forever. Daughter loved the buttered noodles-ha! Wasn't that busy but had a hard time getting server to come over for food, check, etc.

Food was good but the service didn’t match. With 3 areas of the restaurant you could divide the customers into areas for families ordering sandwiches vs couple ordering the nicer entrees. For an expensive entree, the silverware should be replaced after the appetizers, appetizer plates should be removed before entree is delivered, drinks should be refilled. Tables once left should be bussed promptly.

Dinner at Nordstrom Grill was a great experience! Our waitress was very friendly. I have specific dietary requirements and she was very patient and accommodating to our needs. The food was great and gets an A+ for presentation. Would definitely suggest Nordstrom Grill to others.

Took my wife here for dinner after a day of errands and shopping. Beautiful space, clubby decor, and extremely friendly staff. Everything was fresh, made from scratch, and seasoned perfectly. We shared the small house salad - fresh greens and a dressing that was perfectly balanced. Delicious! For entrees my wife had fish and chips, and I ordered the chefs special wild salmon Oscar. The fish in the fish and chips was halibut, the batter light and crispy, and no oily or soggy fish after frying. My wife said it was fantastic! My Salmon Oscar was sockeye filet marinated and grilled over creamer Kale and topped with lemon butter sautéed crab meat. This was easily one of the best preparations of wild sockeye salmon I have ever tasted! Absolutely perfect and scrumptious! Nordstrom Grill is a hidden gem in Christiana Mall - hands down the best restaurant at the mall. This will be one of our regular stops for dinner - it’s that good.

A nice little gem inside Nordstrom's! Chef's special of shrimp risotto with butternut squash was delicious. Other diners had chicken burger with garlic aioli and fries, chicken with pasta and halibut all of which were delicious. The food was nicely presented. The only small criticism is that the fries could have been warmer. We were very happy with the quality of our meals.

The food was very good and the service was excellent. The only problem was that they do not have a
real vegetarian dish. One of of was vegetarian, so finally they served her with the pasta dish without the
meat.

The food was good and the location is convenient. The service was horrible. Not sure what the issue was with the young lady who attended to our table. She showed an attitude seemed to not care and never followed up with us to find out if we were ok. She does not need to attend to people.

The restaurant is located in the cut of the store. At first glance it looks like a diner, more than a restaurant. The food is very good though and isn't diner food. The food is good but due to the bland look, I couldn't recommend this place to anyone. The food is good but not that good.

Eat at this cafe on a regular basis and have had a number of menu items many times so I know when things are off with a meal. Onion Rings ordered as an appetizer were good as usual. My husband's turkey and avocado club was great. My warm spinach and salmon salad was not; salmon was dry and over-cooked unlike on many other occasions. I ate the spinach and left the picked over salmon. I did inform our server and she replied that she'd wished I'd let her know; I just did. Definitely a miss with this visit.

It has become a tradition to take mom to Nordstrom on Mother's Day for some shopping and a late lunch. She had some champagne and a light salad. I had a beer and the crab mac and cheese. We had a nice 90 minute visit and everyone was happy! I'd gladly make it a yearly tradition.

Food always good. Service this time was very rushed. No inquiry as to whether I wanted dessert. Check on the table mid-dining and an attempt to collect the check I had not inserted my credit card. I felt rushed to get out despite a nearly empty restaurant.
