Bazille - Nordstrom University Town Center
Nordstrom is located along Genesee Avenue, between La Jolla Village Drive and Nobel Drive. Bazille is located on the 2nd floor, overlooking the main courtyard of the newly expanded UTC. We offer a full bar with wine, beer & hand crafted cocktails, as well as open patio dining.
We really like this place, either for lunch or dinner. The food is simple but inventive, healthy choices. Nice service and atmosphere.
Nice menu selection, delicious food, and delightful service.
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.
Love the bacon and egg pizza. Great place to have a meal and conversation (noise level isn't bad at all)
Lovely semi-casual atmosphere that is extremely relaxing with a city feel overlooking the mall. Excellent service and very good food.
Delicious food! Everything was perfect!
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!
Yes: good menu and especially pleasant dining on the balcony. Very affordable, too.
Lovely anniversary with my parents. Food was fabulous and on a Thursday night, it was quiet and relaxing.
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.
Good food, nice ambiance for lunch and service outstanding. Win win!
Love the food here!! So yummy!
Delicious food. Everyone in my party of 5 were very happy with what we ordered. Don’t skip dessert it was legit too!
The food was just a little bit salty overall but very fresh and delicious otherwise. Loved their Crab bisque and Shrimp pasta so much! The ambient is wonderful and the staff very friendly. Will definitely visit again :)
The food was amazing, a five star experience. Fresh, clean and beautiful food. I was amazed at how good the food was. Everyone loved their experiences do wants to go back soon. My family’s new favorite.
Our family always eats here before a movie at ARCLIGHT. The food is great, the service is nice and always fast and if you sit outside, it’s a fun view!
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.
Great food and service , brought some friends who were very impressed
Ambience is very nice, food is excellent. A nice respite from the craziness of UTC shopping center.
Very nice service, friendly.
A bit pricy.
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).
Love this restaurant! Great food!
Great food and very suitable for a business lunch. Food is well prepared and of excellent quality.
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.
great food and service
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!
Nice intimate dining and sharable meals. Nice variety on the menu. Great service.
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.
We generally liked this restaurant, despite it being overpriced. But it has lost it. The service this night was terrible. They got my order wrong, several times, they didn't tell me until a half-hour after we ordered that they didn't have the gluten-free pasta after all. They showed no concern that they were really screwing up, repeatedly. They got the salad wrong, they barely cooked the burger that i ordered medium (it was bright pink throughout). When we told them about all this, the waitress showed zero concern. The restaurant, we have observed, has degenerated since it opened. It is not well-managed any more, the staff is not nearly as professional as the original servers were, and the cooks are obnoxiously loud, making weird singing noises and just really annoying, juvenile stuff, and they are not far from the tables. I don't write negative reviews unless a restaurant really messes up, I know the restaurant biz is not easy. But this restaurant's service and overall quality now stands far below what one would expect from anything with the Nordstrom brand on it.
Always done here when we come to shop. Quiet, amazing food and service.
Good value, great service, but a little too "clinical". Needs ambience
The Citrus shrimp salad was amazing!
Enjoying a birthday lunch with good company.
Good food. Great shopping trip lunch place.
First visit to Bazile was lunch with a friend, and both of us were very pleased. The food was very good - especially the creme brulee dessert! - and the service was perfect. Our server was right there when we needed him, but was inobtrusive during most of our 3-hour conversation. A big step above the usual department store tearoom!!
It was a first time for both me and my friend and we were both delighted with the light and airy atmosphere, friendly service and interesting menu choices. We both loved our entrees and would order them again! The food lived up to their descriptions and then some. We stayed for quite a while and were not rushed. An ideal visit.
