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 great food. Soup and salads were fresh and delicious. Food is a fine dining experience.
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.
Great burgers and Fever Tree mixers
Really enjoy visiting Bazille when at UTC. Consistently great food, nice selection on menu.
A tasty meal, good service nice atmosphere. I will suggest this place to my friends.
Always love my server, Cristen. Food is consistently fresh, delicious and... well, consistent. One of my repeat places for lunch.
Food is consistently prepared well. We always get seated in the back with the best server when we visit for lunch. Scallops are delicious.
We love this place for a quick and good bite before a movie.
The food is exceptional!! Also had a great wine list. Love this place. ❤️
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.
Yes, Happy Hour was great: good choices for food and drinks
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.
