Staff great. Pizza not as good as I expected. The tomatoes didn't taste right. Very bland. Calamari great!

Bazillion is nestled on the top floor of Nordstrom's in the Galleria mall in Houston. It is a nice place for lunch as the menu has a broad selection of nice choices. The salads, sandwiches, and side vegetables are quite tasty. Service was friendly and prompt, but it can get quite busy as it is popular spot for the shopping... More

Stopped here for lunch while shopping. I found the food very good, but the menu prices were a little high. After all it is only a restaurant in a department store. $19 for lunch was on the high side for one person.

I don’t know if they changed management or just the name. Bazille seems to be doing better on service than Nordstrom Cafe Bistro. Food was not that bad but I expect more when I dropped $25 on lunch.

I had the pizza with prosciutto & arugula and it was so good. They were going to add the prosciutto after the pizza was done but... More

Very nicely appointed restaurant with a great lunch menu. Brussel sprouts were excellent & easy to share. Cilantro shrimp salad was delicious.

Had lunch on a Friday at this bistro. Restaurant was extremely busy. It's always noisy during lunchtime.Ordered our cilantro lime salad and crab stack. Both were absolutely delicious! Ingredients were both fresh and tasty! Shrimp on the cilantro lime were absolutely the best ever- large and grilled to perfection! The crabmeat in the crab stack was sweet and delicious! The...

If you dine at Nordstrom's cafe you know the quality is good. Some cafe have a more limited menu, but this one had a good selection. They have good wines by the glass. It was light and bright. Only one negative, I wanted to use my Nordstrom's charge and I needed them to look it up. The waiter said it... More

If you are in the Galleria do stop for lunch here. It's a lovely civilised oasis with fresh delicious food and good service. We enjoyed crab stack and shrimp salad with a glass of good wine for a very reasonable price.
