Our second time at Bazin’s. We were there for our anniversary dinner and they sent us complimentary Prosecco as soon as we sat down and left a nice card on the table. The food is delicious and the cocktails are expertly crafted. The lighting is brighter than most places, but I don’t mind. I had the tomato risotto and it was excellent, as is everything else I’ve ever tasted there. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite places.

We went to Bazin's to celebrate our anniversary. As usual everything was outstanding. We shared the amazing crab eggroll and they were kind enough to divide it into two plates. I had the seabass and it is always prepared perfectly. We shared key lime pie for dessert. Our server was very helpful and allowed us to leisurely enjoy our meal while still being attentive. We have always had a positive experience at Bazins which is why we decided to celebrate our anniversary there. I highly recommend it and we will be back many times before our next anniversary.

First time to Bazin’s; we went for Sunday brunch.
Outstanding food (krispy kreme bread pudding starter, then Short Ribs Hash and Norwegian Eggs Benedict). Everything, including the coffee & mimosa was perfect. Cranberry juice was mostly a glass full of ice, but Alex was an extremely capable, attentive and friendly server.
We’ll DEFINITELY be back soon. And we shook our heads wondering what took us so long to go there. (We live in Arlington, so it’s a drive to Vienna. We found parking in the building’s garage.)

This was a very pleasant dining experience for us. We have been to Bazin's on Church once before. It was also my birthday - more later. Our salads - chopped for husband and watermelon for me were very good. Husband's pasta dish and my scallops also very good. Great wine list. Service was very attentive. We even had desert - my birthday blueberry cheesecake came with a candle. There is NO complimentary special event desert at the restaurant now, so why ask... Overall, it was a very pleasurable evening.

We had high hopes for Bazin's. The food was variable, and the service mediocre. I order my gin "up" but got it neat. The wild mushroom soup I had as the first of a three course tasting menu was amazing. My wife's crispy oysters were excellent. Her crab-stuffed flounder was good, but not exceptional. The lamb steak, my main from the three-course, was barely edible. Covered in a brown gravy with a green drizzle, it looked as bad as it was. The malbec I ordered when my main arrived didn't come for 10+ minutes. It was wonderful, as was the wine list. Although we were there for and hour and a half, we didn't get to try the deserts we wanted (mine was included) because our waiter was never around. Most of the time he was standing at the service counter, often for several minutes at a time, rather than at his tables. Disappointing.

Seems like there was staff turnover and the service was very slow. Hopefully will not be an issue going forward as Bazin's is our favorite "go to" place for dining!

We had not been to Bazin’s in years, and were pleased to find that it continued to be high quality. Our appetizers of ravioli with lobster and grilled romaine we’re excellent, as were our mains of filet mignon and halibut. Desserts of creme brûlée and key lime pie were very good.

What a disappointment. Service was slow - waited 30 minutes to get bread. And service was poor - server forgot an appetizer, and then after our entrees were served I told our server twice that we did not want the appetizer but she still brought it, and it was pretty horrible. And the manager was nowhere to be seen, the restaurant had a total lack of customer care. Had to send a steak back TWICE and it was still not cooked properly. The salad and desserts were good, but If you want a great tasting, well prepared meal with good service, I recommend you go elsewhere.

We were looking for a place to eat before attending a show at Wolf Trap. I am Gluten Free so I was SO happy to see so many options - not just items that could be modified, (leaving off the best parts) but items that are truly created GF. My only disappointment was that there were no GF rolls offered.

Great service and nice atmosphere.

Had lunch there this week. The panini mozzarella sandwich was disappointing. They tried to pass off the bread as panini but it wasn't panini!! Fries came out cold. It wasn't even busy in there so there's no excuse! They brought the check straight away!, couldn't get you out fast enough!! Service was ok.

The one aspect of eating at Bazin's that I didn't like was the high noise level. However, the food was good, and that's the most important thing to me. The fish (both halibut and branzino) was outstanding, not overdone as in many restaurants. The dessert was divine: caramel tarte with bittersweet chocolate ice cream. I'd go back for that alone.

The hard thing about brunch most places is that they don’t feature as many low carb options. Here, there are usually 2 and that helps!
I like the environment and all their dishes are tasty. We also like the underground parking since it rained all day, that day
