Good casual lunch. The bread is nice and warm, freshly baked. The menu has so many options, it makes it hard to choose from. I had the Asian chicken salad and it was delicious!!! I wish the sitting and layout were better. A restaurant in Nordstrom should not feel like sitting at Panera Bread ... but it does.

Always great in every way. From the Open Table reservations to the politeness of the hosts, to the professional and happy waiters.

Unfortunately when we were there, the fryer was not working so we couldn't get our original orders. So were pretty bummed about that. Our server was really cool about it and was super apologetic. But other than that it was a lovely experience.

Caesar salad was quite disappointing compared to previous visits. Chicken needs to be cut up.

They only got 3 stars on food because THEY STILL DO NOT HAVE VEGETARIAN CHOICES!
Not even ‘specials for the day’!
Please think of the vegans & vegetarians!!!!

I only gave the food a 3 because they do not have one vegetarian choice on the menu. You can ask for no protein on some of the menu items, like the chinese chicken salad I had, which was delicious. But I resent that I have to pay for protein when I don’t get it. They should offer a vegetarian dish & then have protein options to add to it. OR just have vegetarian options & a vegan option. I love eating here, but the menu makes it very difficult.

We have had lunch here many times. Generally, we share the french dip sandwich which is unusually delicious and prepared to taste. The waitstaff is very friendly and efficient.

We decided on Bazille because we needed a quiet restaurant. The staff was friendly but the food was not very good, the ambiance was pedestrian, but it was relatively quiet (except for the musac piping through speakers). Nothing exceptional but convenient.

My 3rd visit. Each time I brought different people. Each time my dining companions were blown away. Lauren is a jem and remembered my drink she created for me and provided excellent service as usual.

The food was soooo salty. I thought my tongue was going to shrivel up. My server was slow but when we spoke to the manager she stepped up and really did an outstanding job. Kudos to the manager.

I visted for my birthday lunch on a Friday. This was my first time. I wanted to come because there were such great reviews on Yelp AND the images of food looked delicious. The restaurant was pretty busy. You may want to make a reservation like I did to skip any lines. What do I have to say about Bazille?!? A-Maz-Ing !! First off Lauren (our server) was fantastic. Such a warm personality, helpful and fully knowledgeable of all menu items!! She's a keeper Bazille. Hint: sit at her station! The holiday decor was just enough. The dining area well kept, stylish yet modern. Now the food. The bread was so warm and fresh. Suggestion forget the butter and slather the Kalamata Olive Aioli on it, yum! We had Herbed French fries with Kalamata Olive Aioli. The presentation of the fries was aesthetically pleasing. The Cilantro Lime Shrimp Salad did the taste buds good with just enough shrimp. The lime was not at all over powering. The Warm Asian Glazed Chicken Salad had warm chicken and juicy, cold mandarin oranges with just the right amount of dressing. All this without make the salad soggy. How do you do that!?!? Now let's go back to Lauren. We were having a hard time figuring out what to drink. She asked us our flavoring preferences and made suggestions. We asked her to just surprise us. She made a delicious Raspberry Martini with Chambord. Another hint, you can purchase the after dinner mints. They are sold in cute decorative mason-like jars for $5. Excellent, excellent, excellent. What a fantastic birthday lunch for me yum, yum!!! I will definitely return. (Tried uploading more pictures but site said too they were large)

Since they re-did their menu, it is quite disappointing. Not as many choices for a relaxing lunch while shopping. Prices have increased as well, and I'm not sure it's worth it.

The food is always delicious at this Nordstrom Bistro. The menu is creative and the seafood items are always fresh and prepared perfectly. A great place for lunch or dinner after shopping in the store or mall. Did not feel rushed and the tables and booths are comfortable. Highly recommended!

The little chicken lime tacos are heavenly. Great salads, decent wine and beer, and wonderful salads. Also, the french fries with the olive dipping sauce are to die for. Always good service, too.

We always enjoy the food, service and atmosphere at this Bazille, and it's especially easy for dropping off my aged mother (in years, not spirit...she's 94). The only thing I/we don't like is that the booth benches (and tables) are too low - and they make getting up difficult, even if you're not 94.
