The costs are too high for what is provided. Will likely not return. Need to lower the margins on your wine. A glass of wine should not cost $20.00

Really good. Servers were busy so took a while to get someones attention initially, but they were very attentive after that.

A classy joint. It reminds me of the heyday of department store restaurants. This one more expensive than those of yore. Bob Nicholson

Our server was amazing especially with our kids! The brussel sprouts was just as I remembered, amazing. The shrimp avocado salad was not as good as I remembered. Too bad.

My experience was very positive including the very good server and the hostess and the way she managed the entrance. It would be useful if Bazille set up a line for those with reservations and those without. As a client it is not clear how we should let the host know that we have a reservation so people are cutting the line and overloading the person at the reception. As a restaurant that offers excellent food and service, it seems you could come up with a simple system that would make it clearer on guests and easier for the reception person. Thank you - Janine Hutt

Loved our lunch. Was a 70th birthday celebration with friends who were anxious about dining out.
All went well. Good food, good service and the setting was ideal.
Thank you!

Varied range of very good cuisine in a pleasant bistro setting, well-set off from the department store (Nordstrom's) in which it is situated. Friendly, attentive service. A number of different table / bench seating possibilities. Can be a little loud if busy, but such is the bistro atmosphere.

First time here. Lovely, bright, well spaced ambiance. Very efficient with the proof of vaccine for those with reservations and walk in. Attentive service with well placed menu suggestions. The crab bisque had truly the layered flavours of a true bisque, thank you. Only suggestions: offer refill for beverage (soda water) as none was made. No other offer for any refill made. Also, the hostess was quick to come to our service (thank you! She had long red hair in a braid) when a glass of pop was spilled. She left a cloth rag to absorb our mess and mentioned she couldn t stay as she had tables to seat. Waiter came by a couple of times but never noticed or removed our rag, nor our cloth napkins that we used to absorb and minimize the spill. It should have been a nice attention to address for my elderly mom. Overall very much enjoyed and simply providing some attention to detail to mention for staff to be aware of for clients. Merci! Will come back!

My Lamb in a red pepper almond sauce, a Chef Special was truly Outstanding. I loved every morsel! Even the kale, something I don't generally care for, was excellent for some reason! One companion said that she had the best Hamburger that she had ever had (and she is 81 years old). Another absolutely loved her Steak Frites - and she knows her food! Our 4th companion had a Mango Avocado Salad with big, perfectly cooked, and seasoned shrimp on top. A white wine recommended by our server was declared delicious and beautifully paired with the meals. When requested, the Manager adjusted the volume of music for one of our group who had suffered from a stroke, and he carefully settled us in the best seating he had for our concerns. Excellent all around and we stayed over 2 hours!

Delightful to once again share a meal with friends. The food was very good and the service was at a “leisurely COVID pace”; ie. what we can expect as the economy opens up. We were fine with that but don’t expect to be out in an hour. The manager did his best to cover for the shortage of staff including thanking us for our patience. Our waiter was most accommodating.
I hope that they can keep their patio open until Ontario mandates that all staff must be vaccinated.

Service was attentive but not disruptive, the restaurant seating was well spaced out. I enjoyed my Asian glazed chicken salad and can’t wait to go back. It doesn’t hurt the Bazille is in Nordstrom which is my favourite store. I can never leave without a glorious purchase .
Thanks Bazille, you never disappoint.

After a 18 months of being at home, as a family we wanted to have a special experience, which we have at Le Bazille. Our food was excellent, fresh and great taste. The service was very good, however the chocolate cake with ice cream was the perfect option for the finale. definitely our first choice as option to have a great family gathering.

This is a lovely patio for a light, relaxed lunch. The covered outdoor space is away from noisy traffic and the tent would make it comfortable even if you get a surprise rain shower. A lovely spot to share a pizza or an appetizer over a glass of wine or a cocktail, they also have more robust fare for those who are a little hungrier.
