    Great food, service, and drinks. Brendan was a sensational server. Timely, informative, responsive, and made the best Campari Spritz we have tasted since Italy.

    Two of us dined at this location . We had to send our steaks back for them to be cooked correctly and in my case I sent it back twice.

    Super comme d'habitude. Bon service et prix raisonnable.a nourriture est bonne mais il ne faut pas s'attendre à de la haute gastronomie. Ce sont des plats genre steak, saumon, burger etc. C' est très bon.

    The four of us were happy with our food and the service. The staff tried very hard to serve us in French and mostly succeded. Only glitch: decaf coffee was not available.

    We always have a good meal at Bazille and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Ben our waiter friendly, professional and checked in with us the right amount or The only item that was disappointing was the creme brulee. It was too cold, a bit too solid but tasted good. Thank you.

    We had a lovely lunch at Bazille. The service was prompt and friendly. Our food was delicious. Have been to the restaurant many times and I always enjoy the atmosphere. There is plenty of privacy but a sense of excitement at the same time. It is very bright even when it is raining. The bar, which is usually quite busy adds a fresh and compelling 'happening scene' to the overall experience. It is always fun.

    Service was great with Brian and hostess was very attentive. They accommodated to our needs. We ordered the Spinach and Artichoke dip which was good. We always order the calamari. This time it was over cooked,rubbery and saltier than usual. Beef Dip was good but the “au jus” lacked flavour than the last time we were there. The fries that came with it tasted like it had been refried as opposed to have been cooked to order. We also ordered crème brûlée which was the consistency of a melted milkshake (maybe it’s just us but we are used to a more stabilized crème brûlée) and the burnt sugar on top was way too thick that it was stuck to our teeth and hard to eat. I’m sure that this experience was a “one off” in the kitchen. I hope that this feedback comes across as constructive criticism as opposed to disappointment.

    Menu could have been more variable. In other words, there could have been more items on the menu. Besides, the fish tacos and the crepes were sold out,. Overall, it was great.

    We always liked to stop at Bazille for lunch when we were out shopping. Now, however, without warning, they have switched to serving brunch on weekends till 3pm. Old lunch menu is gone. This is frustrating. Their lunch was amazing, but their brunch isn't worth the cost.

    Finally got back to Bazille after the latest wave and it was worth the wait. The restaurant is one of the nicest I know in a retail establishment. The staff are amazing, always making sure you have want you want and need. The menu is quite eclectic, both the food and the drink menus. I always have one of the Chef's suggestions and have yet to be disappointed.
