They have adjusted to the COVID-19 requirements splendidly. I do look forward to having an occasional cocktail at the actual bar, and will continue to come for lunch and dinner until then

Really appreciate in these times that Sophia was using Lysol wipes on the tables and chairs in between seatings! Maybe she did not think others noticed but we did! Thank you.

Also thank you and your team for their routine service.

Always great food and super service. Sometimes they have the air conditioning blowing when it is cold so bring a sweater. Staff is super at lunch!

This is a cafe within a 5 star department store. Great for lunch or dinner when shopping, but also a quick top shelf meal with friends.

Not busy or crowded. I think it was the Bartendrr that was our waiter. We came to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. I told the hostess and she was supposed to pass it along. At the end of the meal our bill came. I mentioned it to the waiter but he didn’t offer anything and intimated we’d have to pay for any desserts. I was very disappointed. Bad customer service here. Not what I would expect from a Nordstrom. Otherwise all else was just okay. A bit pricey for what we got. Nothing to brag about.

Very pleasant lunch venue. It was not crowded and we were able to sit where we liked. We tried the patio but unfortunately the acoustics out there are very lively. I think voices and clattering dish sounds must bounce off the large windows. At any rate, it was annoying and also outside you are subject to Miramar jet noise. So we did move inside.
We both had salads that we enjoyed very much. My salmon salad in particular was very good. I had visited another restaurant not long ago and paid more for a salad that was not nearly as satifying.

Delicious food! Salads and warm bread were a very good start to the meal. Salmon and lamb entrees were both nicely prepared. Always order the white chocolate bread pudding and it is consistently outstanding! Nice wine and beer list too. Server was younger and maybe not quite as attentive or experienced as other visits but still overall a wonderful meal.

Our lunch was very good. Would preferred patio but it became very noisy so we moved inside. It is always cold inside. They keep air at cool temperature.
Suggest they keep it warmer if they want customers to eat inside. Better for the planet and electric bill.
Service was excellent.

I love that the Nordstrom UTC's restaurant is different from the normal Cafe fare. I had the shrimp salad - flavorful and filling. Also tried the calamari and bruchetta pizza (shareable).

Finally a sit down restaurant at Nordstrom, much needed. I had crab, mango salad which was delicious. My friend enjoyed salmon salad. Nice variety of food on menu. Service was very good. My only complaint is UTC is now charging for parking beyond 2 hours, so limited time for lunch and shop within 2 hours. I shop at South Coast and Fashion Island, no charge for parking. UTC needs to resolve this issue.
