The oysters appetizer is still superb, as was the lamb shank main course. For those of us with hearing aids, the noise level of a full house was challenging.

This was my husband’s choice for his birthday celebration. We have always had great food here, and last night didn’t disappoint. One of my all-time favorites is the chopped salad. Absolutely love it — could eat it every day! He had the beet salad which was a real treat (since he doesn’t get it at home! Haha.). The veal milanese and the rigatoni were delicious entrees, and we enjoyed sharing the apple crostata. Our waiter was terrific (Eric).

Food was okay, expected more flavor. It came out really fast, like 5 min after we ordered which had me thinking it was all pre-made in the back. Ambiance is wonderful and service is good.

My guests and I were immediately seated when arriving for our reservation. The restaurant seemed busy for a Tuesday evening. Waiter was prompt, but not too intrusive in getting refreshment order, and very helpful in providing recommendations for appetizers, entrees and desserts. My shrimp wrap, halibut and key lime pie were delicious. My guests enjoyed their fried oysters, sea bass, flat iron beef, apple crisp and pumpkin cheesecake. By 7:30 the noise level in the restaurant was so energetic that we could not carry on a conversation. The number of patrons, good for business, was somewhat disconcerting for COVID-19 spread and noise level. As a senior citizen with some health concerns, I will patronize restaurants with better social distancing while the risk of COVID-19 remains significant.

The food was very good. The only problem now is parking. Since the Pandemic, parking in the area has become limited and the outside space taken by the restaurant has added to the lack of parking. Understandable but still frustrating.

We were late for our reservation so the waitress seated us next door at "Bazin's Next Door", which is literally next door. There was one other couple there. The place was quiet which I really liked. I was concerned service would be poor. I was wrong our waiter was super attentive. All was well. Food most tasty! Large portions and delicious dessert! Will go back soon!

tables were closer than expected and we had particularly noisy immediate neighbors. a 'noisy' rating may be labeled energetic - but it is also very objectionable if you are at an adjacent table and trying to have a pleasant conversation and enjoyable dinner.Yes - it is Halloween but shrieking and cackling and trying to out talk your immediate table mates is rude and inconsiderate on their part.
Of course I don't know how you can deal with this but just wanted to get it off my chest. we did scout the room and it looks like we should request tables 74/75 the next time.

Our Waiter, Dave, was fantastic! He worked with the Chef to determine the best wine to pair with our meal. The crispy oysters just melt in your mouth with the creamed spinach, and the Sea Bass is always a hit! We also had their fall dish of butternut squash risotto with garlic shrimp which was amazing. The salted caramel tart was a complete surprise just a very special evening as always!!

Another great meal at Bazins. I had the pesto-rubbed halibut (wonderful) and my bride the veal Milanese (also wonderful). The shrimp wrap appetizer is also great as is the grilled romaine. Excellent selection of wines by the glass.
We were outside where tables are very nicely spaced and heaters were available. Bazin's is our favorite in Vienna.

We chose this restaurant because they offer reservations for outside seating. The ambiance in the backyard was nice but they held a 50-person rehearsal dinner in the same space, and our table was less than 10 feet away from the party. Very awkward and annoying. Showed little care for outside diners. Menu was interesting, with a mix of different and familiar. Some entrees in our order were well prepared and tasty. Our flat iron steaks were served rare, when we ordered medium. And the blue cheese on top was a little too strong and did not complement the meat at all. The quaint location, warm ambiance, and interesting menu give this restaurant a lot of potential, but it missed the mark a little bit in execution during our visit.

I had not been to Bazin’s since Feb 2020 and was excited to go back. I am hoping it was just a bad night but the food, service and experience was not what I was used to. The food was okay not at all like before and the portions were definitely smaller which was disappointing. I will give it one more try because I really enjoyed this spot in the past.
