After the chaos of a class at the Apple store, we were happy to relax & enjoy the calm atmosphere of Nordstrom’s Bistro. My fresh fruit arugula salad 🥗 hit the spot + my hubby was satisfied with his choice of crab 🦀 macaroni &...More

Our disappointment in the freshness of the avocado in the crab mango salad was made up to us with complimentary dark chocolate caramels by an embarrassed server. Not up to Nordstrom standards but we'll be back to try again.

If you in the mall shopping and looking to eat but not fast food and you do not want to wait hour or more at the Cheesecake Factory, then you must come here. The food is good, service is good. Prices is ok too.

Best food place I have found in the mall. Delicious food, great service and comfortable seating. Can recommend the bread pudding desert.

The is food is average and not worth the price. They constantly make mistakes on the orders and it takes too long to correct it. Where is management?? The ordering process is very SLOW and can't seem to accommodate a line very well.

You must try the Cafe at Nordstrom. Don't go to the Food Court, when you can have table service (after ordering at the counter), freshly made foods - good choices and it's always quiet and peaceful. I love this place.

They've got it down to a tee. I love going to the bistro. I always get the shrimp salad. It is so fresh and the service is like a five star restaurant. I've been there at least 10 times and have never been disappointed.

I do not associate malls with quality eating. But I have to say this Bistro reset my expectations. I liked the dynamics: look at the menu at the door. Pay and then sit wherever you like. A server takes care of you from that point...More

I don't believe they do, you have to wait in line to place your order(s) and pay they find a table to sit down. The waitress will then bring out your drinks and order when its ready.
