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.
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 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.
The food was very tasty, albeit portions are a bit small. The service is fair, but I had hot tea and it comes in a one serving pot. I wouldn’t have had to bother the server so often if the hot water came in at least a 2 serving container. We had to catch the waiter’s attention for several item, so service could have been more attentive. There was a screaming baby nearby so that influenced my experience. This was my 2nd visit, and although it was ok, I really liked the old Nordstrom restaurant’s service and food options.
The best French fries I ever had. They are thin and crispy with a light dusting of herbs. We sat on the patio, watched the people below and had a very pleasant time.
Took my wife for date night to this venue. It was a little odd to walk through Nordstroms to get to the restaurant, but the restaurant was very quiet when we arrived and remained so throughout the evening. Service was OK, but could have been more attentive given the very few tables with customers. The calamari appetizer was tasty, as was my wife's shrimp salad entree. I was disappointed with the lamb ragu, which was not good value for money. The best item of the evening was desserts - a very tasty peach crumble. I would probably not come for the meal next time - there are ample food choices within walking distance at the expanded UTC mall, but I would come for the dessert and coffee afterwards to get the best value for money.
Food is delicious loved every morsel of what we ordered
Our server was excellent she knew the ingredients for all of entrees and cocktails. Prompt and pleasant.
Will return again.
Amazing birthday dinner from start to finish.
Food was fantastic! Best kept secret in UTC mall! YUM!
The service was really very good here. I was surprised that I didn't feel like I was eating in a department store, next to racks of clothing on the other side of the glass divider. It was quite enjoyable for a casual dinner with a friend. The burrata salad was excellent.
