Bazille - Nordstrom Palo Alto
Is wild caught salmon supposed to look so orange? I am not sure but I added salmon to my caesar salad. It looks different than fish I have say at Swan Oyster Depot. Anyhow, my salmon came nice and orange like the orange worn by Miami Dolphins. Color aside, I know there are no parasites in the salmon I was served because it was cooked well done aka rock solid. What I enjoyed most about my salad was the quality of greens used. I don't find wilted old veggies in my bowl of salad. So big thumbs up. Place can get noisy when families bring their children. Service is spotty. Some waiter/waitress are more attentive than others. My waitress brought me an arnold palmer with a spoon to stir. So I got tea at the top and then lemonade at the bottom.
My husband and I go for lunch at Bazille almost daily. We love the variety of food offerings. The staff knows us well and treats us like royalty.
Lunch with daughter. Both please
Great as usual!!
Fabulous server and good food!
Always love Bazille! Their Club Sandwich is the best.
We went for dinner on a Friday night (labor day weekend) so the patrons were a bit scarce which suited us just fine as we prefer a quiet environment. That said, I also happened to have lunch that day with friends, arriving at 1:00pm and the noise level was much different. Both times, service and food were great.
Was a quiet night. Service staff was not attentive with only a few tables to serve. I’m very low stress diner, but it is nice when the service team engages and shows interest.
As is, the menu has absolutely nothing a vegan can eat. I had them take the cheese off 2 starter salads and put them together which turned out to be ok. I wish they would have more possibilities. Also, we arrived early for lunch at 11, and that gave us almost an hour of relative quiet go be able to converse.
Excellent as always!!
My friend and I shared a bottle of wine and treated ourselves to dessert to escape the heat, but the A/C died right before we got there—they got it up and running before we left thank goodness—our server was so nice and our desserts were small but VERY tasty!
Always good food, good service, good ambience.
This is a great place for a casual dinner.
My mom and I enjoyed a mid-week lunch together after a doctor appointment at Stanford. She ordered the halibut and fries, which was absolutely delicious. I ordered the small plate brussels sprouts and cilantro lime chicken tacos. The brussels were really tasty. The tacos were just ok. They were two super small crunchy tacos with ground chicken. I could have made better at home. Our server was very attentive. The one complaint about the atmosphere is that the tile floor nearest to the kitchen is so slippery that my mom nearly fell. We had to be very careful about how we exited our booth.
Always tasty and great service! The salads are a fabulous lunch for summer.
We enjoyed our dinner very much with the family. It often feels that the less busy they are the longer it takes to get our meal.
Great food and service.
The interior design is old school. Too much dark wood, no life. Needs some lighter color. When was the last time it was remodeled?
I am not sure if we walked in at shift change but is the first time where service was below the standard. From the min our server walked in to how we were given the check, it was not at all like other times. We saw other tables get water, bread and a warm welcome while all we got was, do you know what you want?
Food is always good.... this was just meh
Very good service - excellent food
Our server was great! Super attentive!
The food never disappoints and the service is always attentive. I always try to reserve one of the tables close to the open doors so that it is more quiet for conversation. The booths tend to more quiet as well.
Very good food, but a bit empty given the quality of food for a Thursday early evening dinner. Highly recommend.
Always a solid choice
We enjoyed Bazile - beautifully appointed, good food, great service. It will definitely be on our go-to place for lunch.
We frequently dine at Bazille. One of our favorites.
We have been eating here for years. Always good!! Great service and wonderful surroundings.
This used to be a great place. Our service started with a rude hostess, the food was mediocre at best. Definitely not worth the price. You know it’s bad when no one ate their French fries! Our server was great. She was the only part that wasn’t bad. Won’t be coming back.
We had salad, French Onion Soup and French Dip. The portions were too large for us. However we were warned to cut our order, so that's on us. When we go back we will know how to order. The server was excellent.
Our server Janella was delightful. Love the lime cilantro shrimp salad. So good for lunch!
Great Place to eat! Food was Yummy. I had the Halibut and Fries. I will be back again to try the rest of the menu.
The spring risotto was very good with shrimp added—the pea pods were exceptionally crisp and flavorful. The mango and coconut panna cotta was also delicious, with a silken texture and nice bi-colored presentation in a short Mason jar.
Our server was very pleasant and efficient.
Every thing was ok
The service here is always exceptional. Evvy (sp?) is the best, hands down. They always know that I want Evvy's section :-) Food is really good too.
This is a must-go restaurant. The food is so consistently good. I had to drag my husband here because he did not want to eat inside a Nordstrom’s but the food and service is consistently better than one of the many crowded restaurants in downtown Palo Alto. Don’t be afraid if you are not stopping in for a bite, after shopping. This restaurant is a destination on its own.
Always a great experience here from start to finish. Very attendant wait staff. Food is just excellent. Relaxing lunch - they don't rush you.
Wasn’t crazy about where we were seated when there were several tables in less hectic area of the restaurant that stayed empty our entire visit
The food was excellent and we enjoyed our meal. We will be back!
A booth made for an intimate get together with friends that was in a spacious quiet area of the restaurant. Food was tasty. Service was excellent and accommodating.
We have visited Nordstom's Brazaille often. In the past few visits this year, the experience was outstanding, food was excellent and seating was desirable; but this time when we recommended to our visiting friends that we eat there it was a disappointment all the way around except for the waiter. Not much more we can say. We will visit again but broaden our choices to other restaurants in the Stanford Shopping Center. Please note that this visit was on President's Day which may have caused us some disappointments. However, the food was not up to par. Glad to give you this feedback. Rosemary Orsley
Excellent as always!!
