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.

Dinner was quite nice. The food was very good and had a nice presentation. Service (by Leigh) was excellent! Quiet setting, and the pricing was reasonable. We will be back

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.

Amy was our waitress and she was great. Although it was busy she was so attentive and just had a warm spirit. I was there to celebrate a friends birthday and her recommendations were spot on. My meal was phenomenal. Keep up the great work. Thank you Nordstrom Christiana!

Met an old friend for lunch. We both had soup and salads. Very good. Wasn’t very busy. We had plenty of time to catch up. Wish they would have offered us refills on our hot tea

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.

Food was good but service was disappointing. Slow to come back to the table to check on us despite there not being many customers. Booked the reservation as a birthday, but my wife was never congratulated or had the birthday mentioned in any way

Delicious food, wonderful service, delightful atmosphere. They change the menu here from time to time which is nice because while you do fall in love with some favorites it is fresh and new all the time letting you find new favorites! We have been here many times and have never been disappointed!

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.

I can always count on this restaurant to come through when you want to go somewhere special and experience tasty food. The staff was very friendly and made my mom's day very special. Keep up the great work.

Our server was excellent, however, the food was very poor. The 'soup of the day', asian sweet potato, was tasteless and underseasoned, needing a lot of salt. The appetizer shortrib sliders that I ordered contained a thumbnail size piece of meat and had no 'melted cheddar cheese' as written on the menu (I ended up eating just the bottom of the brioche bun, discarding the top because there was NO MEAT)....the restaurant should be ashamed of serving such sub-par food and especially charging $10.50! I was hoping to make this a friends-get-together or future business meeting, but, in my experience this will not be happening. I am strongly NOT recommending Nordstrom Grill as a dining destination at the Christiana Mall.

Always nice to have lunch here while dropping our daughter off at university of Delaware
A nice stroll through the mall and a great salad or sandwich at sixth&pine
Try the BLTA or the spinach salad with grilled salmon
Yum
