Food is consistently prepared well. We always get seated in the back with the best server when we visit for lunch. Scallops are delicious.

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.

Service, food, sitting outside... all made for a wonderful experience. Anne our server was fabulous. I had the shrimp salad, and my guest had the French dip. We both cleaned our plates and loved every bite. Can’t wait to go back for dinner. The menu is great!

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.

We always eat here before or after the movies at Arclight. It’s always quiet, relaxed and the food is always great. Time after time we remark how we enjoy this restaurant! We grab the outside table and many times we can be completely by ourselves.

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).

We had a girls night out and had a great experience
Mathew - our server - was terrific
We ordered the shrimp pasta dish and the salmon dish and the French onion soup
it was all fantastic!

We splurged on a bottle of Chardonnay and also enjoyed the apple cobbler dessert

The service and the food were outstanding
We will be going back soon !!

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.

Hostess was very snippy upon arrival. Seemed to be bothered by my very simple request. Our server was kind and professional. Food wasn’t as good as the first time. Music was too loud.

Our server made the best hand crafted cocktails and had wonderful recommendations. I highly recommend the Vine Cocktail and the Brussels sprouts. I was not impressed with the chicken tacos. They didn't have much flavor.

Our server Bernardo was knowledable about the food and wine, attentive, and provided the perfect balance of friendly conversation without disrupting our meal. Cudos to Nordstrom for hiring quality people like Bernardo. The salad, veggie pizza, and wine was excellent. The location on the 2nd floor of Norstrom's is convenient, and also provides a touch of elegance!

The food is excellent however the service was not. The host was ignoring us while I had reservation but continued to seating other peoples ( these people carried big bag of Nordstrom bag). We weren’t much of drinker so we only order tea and water. The lady who brought our water just slam it on the table. We love the foods but very disappointed about the services.
