"Had a quick bite here before going to the theater. The Sweet Potato/Jalopeno soup was excellent. Not too spicy. It came with excellent cheesy toast. I also had the fried calamari which was just standard, but the sauces were delicious. Had a very tasty red wine, can't remember which one. I was the pour had been a little more generous for the price. It would be nice if they had more vegetarian options. Server was friendly but not over powering."

"I made a reservation for the Super Bowl City opening day (Saturday Jan 30 1 PM). I called 30 minutes before I was supposed to arrive to let them know I was stuck in traffic due to road closures, and asked if I could move the reservation 15 minutes. I was told it would have to be moved to 1:30 PM, which was no problem, especially since I was inconveniencing them.
When I arrived at 1:30 PM, I was told that my party had already been seated. As I was meeting a possible client for the first time, I wasn't sure what he looked like, so I asked the hostess where she had seated him. She said down the steps and to the LEFT. She was curt in her response, as though I was inconveniencing her by asking. I walked down the steps to theleft, as she directed, looking at each table, which understandably made people a bit uncomfortable. Since he wasn't there, I walked to the other side of the restaurant and did the same thing. No luck. I went back to the hostess station, waiting for her to finish up with the couple she was assisting and asked her again, this time explaining this was a potential new client I'd never met, which is why I wasn't sure exactly what he looked like. This time she was very condescending, turned around 180 degrees rather dramatically, held up her hands as though she were a flight attendant on the airplane doing a safety briefing on exit door locations, and said rudely, "I sat him down the steps to the RIGHT (the opposite of what she had first told me) somewhere between where my hands are pointing. I genuinely could not believe a Nordstrom employee was being so rude. I don't think I've ever had a Nordstrom employee be anything BUT absolutely wonderful. I found myself wondering if she had already given notice at her job. The way she was treating customers (not just me), she certainly was acting like that was the case. This wasn't a particularly busy/stressful day at the Bistro, based on how the other employees were acting. We left & dined elsewhere."

"There were seven of us for lunch and everyone loved their meal. I ordered the chicken sandwich and it was delicious. Ate every one of the french fries - great flavor and texture. Interesting aioli dip for the fries and for the sandwich as well. Good bloody Mary. Service was good. All were happy."

"Two of my dear friends and I were going to attend a 2 PM matinee at the Orpheum, and wanted to have a nice lunch beforehand. We took Bart from the East Bay, and Nordstrom seemed a convenient place to have lunch, and it had been recommended by a friend. I got on my IPad and made the reservation on Open Table. We were graciously greeted at the front of the Bistro, and seated immediately at a table with a lovely view. Two of us had a Pad Thai noodle dish, and the other had an Asian salad which was somewhat similar to our dish. We all had the Rasberry Lemonade which was refreshing and delightfully tasty. We enjoyed what we ordered very much, it was all very delicious. We definitely would go there again for lunch, and even for a glass of wine and a snack because it's a very pleasant setting, and the menu is good."

"This was a Christmas Eve reservation, and we expected something a bit more special. The food was so-so, and the waitress proceeded to tell us how she had hated working there, that she had been transferred from another location of the same restaurant, and wanted to get out as soon as she could. Yikes, who tells their customers/guests that? We were blown away. Service was poor, our table neglected. I had the distinct sense that there may have been some intoxicated employees in this restaurant. Not a good experience."

"For a restaurant within a department store, Bistro is always a good choice. It get very busy, but the drinks and small plates to share are a treat when a shopper just needs a few minutes to relax, refresh and get back out on the floor."

"Even though we had made a reservation a week in advance, we waited over 45 minutes for our table. There seemed to be no system for seating as many walk-ins were seated before those with reservations. The check-in crew was polite, but incapable of handling the crowd. The restaurant was in need of cleaning and repairs and overall had a very shoddy appearance. Food was marginal so the only saving grace was our delightful sever who made a great effort to keep several unhappy tables serviced. Next time, we will remember to book the Rotunda at NM much earlier for the Holiday Season."

"This Cafe at Nordstrom's is a gem. We had a great meal, with great service. Do try the French Onion soup! It was relaxing and we were not hurried at any time. We left relaxed and satisfied, ready to see a show at the Golden Gate Theatre."
