Such a cool secret spot. I hate to even give it a good review to keep it exclusive, but I also want them to stay in business so go check it out.

I probably wouldnt go there if i wasnt at the Mall already but its a wonderful place to have lunch if you are. Not noisy and crowded like the cheesecake factory . Not particularly expensive either. High quality food. Healthy items on the menu. Pretty little place.

We arrived at 6pm on Christmas Eve and they were closing up. We had reservations for 6pm through OpenTable and they said OpenTable doesn't listen to our hours and shouldn't have made reservations for your Christmas Eve dinner at that time. They told us they called us to let us know but we didn't answer. Keep in mind this phone call came in at 4:18pm Christmas Eve(same day as our reservation) while we were at a movie(phone was off). As soon as the movie was over we ran to the restaurant to hear this news in person(delivered with zero apologies). We had to leave and eat fast food on Christmas Eve because every other restaurant was booked solid. I have never written a bad review in my life but feel this needs to be written so that others may avoid the same fate for a special occasion meal at Bazille. :(

We really missed the sommelier that worked previous tastings. She stopped by at each glass serving and discussed both the wine and food pairing process. Really enjoyed that.

This trip, we only had one visit from the replacement sommelier so we felt somewhat neglected compared to previous meals.

Also, I might note that my beef Wellington service portion was the smallest size portion I have ever been served anywhere. Literally, just three bites. The others in my group had normal portions and they were kind enough to share some with me. I should have said something to the staff but that just makes everyone uncomfortable so I didn't.

It's a shame because my wife and I were trying to impress our guests with this fun and informative dinner outing but unfortunately, this time it just failed.

Wonderful dinner with my husband. We enjoyed the soup of the day, a bacon corn chowder, a kale salad, the scallops with lemon risotto and grilled steak with French fries and arugula salad. We also got dessert, a white chocolate raspberry bread pudding. Some sparkling rose, Chardonnay and French press coffee were our beverages.

This is my go-to lunch restaurant so decided to bring girls’ night here. The menu satisfied everyone’s palate and the portions were perfect.

Our only criticism was that the servers cleared plates and glasses without asking permission. I personally still had some of my cocktail remaining and was hoping to enjoy it a bit longer.

Aside from that, it’s a great place for date night or small groups.

Negative: made reservations for lunch, but appeared irrelevant. Waited behind others who didn’t. Wait was short (7-10 minutes).

Positive: once seated, service was excellent. Food was exceptional. Delicious calamari & lime chicken tacos to share. Crab bisque was so good. Ambience was delightful. Would highly recommend & I will be returning! Thank you.

Have dined here several times. Food, service, and ambience are consistently good. I love the convenience of having a nice restaurant inside a department store. After shopping, you can treat yourself with a nice meal and a glass of wine with your significant other or the entire family.

The wine pairings were interesting.

The appetizer and salad were very good. However, the salmon did not taste fresh and was not tender.

Portions are too large for a four-course meal.

Great place for a casual dining experience. The food is very consistent here, prepared nicely. There is a full bar, limited brands, but enough options as well as nice boutique wines and beer. Staff is friendly and attentive. Salads are always fresh, sized appropriately. The crab bisque, albeit a bit salty this time, is a favorite. The French Dip is my favorite sandwich here. My friend opted for the happy hour grilled patty melt, he really liked it. Definitely a nice environment and reasonably priced fare and drinks. Great spot.

The "little Gem" Caesar with salmon came with large leaves of Romaine, not little gem, and the salmon was over cooked and the entire salad covered with finely grated parmesan cheese. My wife tried to eat the salmon but being overcooked she had to send it back and the difficulty cutting the very large leaves of Romaine turned her off. My lobster mac and cheese was good, but a small portion with little lobster. $27 with tax and tip seems too high.

I ordered the crab and mango salad the crab was rancid and had to send it back. By the time my new order (other option) came out, my husband’s dinner was cold as he waited for my meal to arrive. They brought another salad, forgot to omit the dressing, had to make another. Very disappointing dinner experience

I generally order the crabmeat, mango, avocado salad. Lately, each time, there's less and less crabmeat. Not happy with menu selections since Bazille took over. I used to visit on a regular basis. Not so much anymore.

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.

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
