We enjoyed our meal and the service was very good. I don't remember the waiter's name - a man, perhaps in his early 50s - with a slight accent maybe? Very good waiter.

Quiet - which I liked.

Bazille always gets top marks for food but for the first time the service was wonderful. Unfortunately I can’t recall the young ladies name but she was efficient, friendly and very knowledgeable about wine and cocktails. Top class!

Very nice atmosphere for a birthday dinner with my wife. Her scallops were excellent. My pan fried chicken with shredded Brussels sprouts was not a good taste combination. The chicken was bland, and the Brussels sprouts were overpowering. I recommend this dish be removed from the menu. I appreciate creativity, but this dish did not succeed

Dined at this restaurant for the second time. It has decent food, great service and nice ambiance. Menu is limited, however, adequate. I remember the lighting to be dimmer the last time I dined there. This time is was a little too bright, which takes away from the ambiance a little. Overall, I recommend this restaurant.

The food we ordered was very good l had been there a few months earlier for lunch and we had the delicious French dip sandwich
When we were there a few days ago it was for dinner and out of the roast beef. We came from Ventura especially for the dip dinner
We were disappointed there wasn’t any but we did enjoy what we ordered which was the patty melt

Not the same anymore . As Blue Stove it was far superior. The tapas concept was brilliant. As Bazille it is pricier and less choices. Blue Stove was always an exciting experience to order 4 to 6 dishes for 2 people to share. Now as Bazile you have to commit like in any other restaurant.
Nordstrom took the "food experience " away.

Perfect spot to stop in mid-shopping. I prefer the tapas style of the two previous restaurants, but they did have a “small plates” section on the menu. Decent wine list and cocktail menu. Good and friendly service.

This is our new favorite spot. Secret gem inside the Oaks Mall!! It's the best French dip I've ever had... My mouth waters just talking about it. The staff remembers us, from the kitchen to the front bar. The wine parings are impeccable and the chef specials are always super amazing and creative

I dine here often, and this was the first time that was completely satisfied with everything.

1. The waitress: Jennifer was one the best waitresses I've ever had! Very attentive, courteous, knowledgeable, and friendly.

2. I am in love with the butter that this place serves with the bread!!! Hands down, the best ever. And, after complaining a few times about the cold bread, finally this time they warmed up the bread before serving it! I guess they ARE reading these reviews!

3. Thank you for adding items to your menu...The expansion gives us more choices and the specials menu makes us want to come again to try new things.

4. The avocado toast was very good. The goat cheese and pomegranate jam was excellent. The mango and crab salad was very fresh and tasty. I would've liked to see a little riper mangoes in it, though! Still very good. The special wine was just enough and very good. The pumpkin chocolate cake was wonderful!

Overall, this was an A+ experience! I'd highly recommend Bazille in Thousand Oaks, CA. Oh, I think a big factor for this rating was our waitress, Jennifer, who really made us feel welcomed and special :)

We've eaten at a couple of Bazile locations, and always find the service and the food exceptional. That's why we'll actually go to a department store like Nordstrom to have lunch. We have some tried and true favorites, and this time we ordered two of those that are always exceptional, and an appetizer that we hadn't tried before...Kung Pao brussel sprouts. All three dishes were off the mark, and we ate less than half of each.

Now to be fair, perhaps we were spoiled by previous experience, but that's why we come back, because we love the food. And the service has always been great, and was on this visit as well. So we hope that whatever is wrong here gets fixed, 'cause we really love this place, but won't be coming back if it doesn't improve.

By now, I have tried everything on the menu and there are only 2 things that I really like here. Everything else is just average or below average. The chicken tacos (appetizer) are excellent and they have the best tasting butter I've ever tasted! They normally serve olive oil with the bread, but you ask for butter, you won't regret it!!!

Stay away from the Gnocchi with Lamb (way too greasy) and the salmon (tastes and smells like Costco's steelhead)! The salads are ok...

To be honest, I was quite disappointed with Bazille. I had been coming to Blue Stove for years (Bazille’s predecessor), and was excited to try it out. Sadly our food was bland (and way over prized for what we ordered), the server forgot about our appetizer, and we waited with the dessert menus for so long that we had to just get the check by the time she remembered to come to our table (the restaurant wasn’t even that busy even though it was mother’s day). Sadly I don’t think I’ll be back.

Brussel sprouts were delicious. My friend like her scallops. I ordered the Korean beef which in no way simulated the cooking or flavors of this dish. All it was was a piece of oversweetened beef accompanied by boy choy which was gritty because it had not been properly washed. Disappointing.
