The service staff is very friendly and accommodating, there is a lot of social distancing and everything feels very clean there. The food was good, not great. We had a chop salad which was pretty bland, the sea bass was very good and cooked perfectly. The mushroom topped rockfish was dry, but the risotto it sat on top of was good. The flourless chocolate cake was also dry and not very flavorful. The wine selection was very good and we tried a couple different wines, which were all great. I would go again since I liked their wines and ambiance, but not sure the cost is the dishes match what I would expect from a $26-$35 main course.

We were looking for a nice dinner spot on New Year’s Day and we were lucky enough to get a reservation to Bazin’s the day of. We studied the menu ahead of time, but arrived to find out it was taco night. While I had my heart set on short ribs, the taco menu was amazing and our waiter gave us great direction. Our margaritas were top notch, and the tacos did not disappoint either. I will definitely be a repeat customer, and look forward to visiting in a post-covid environment - my wife and I traditionally love sitting at the bar for a meal. I also noticed the owner was walking around greeting regulars as if they were family, so I felt like we found a good spot to invest in future visits. Being new to the area, that’s a great sign.

There were 6 in our party for New Year’s Eve. The food and drinks were outstanding, especially the sea bass, mushroom soup and caramel pie. This might just be my new favorite restaurant!

We were there to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary and the evening was lovely. A slower Sunday evening, but the vibe was good and the food and wine list excellent.

I really liked the ambiance of the restaurant and the food was amazing. I had the Blue Cheese Crusted Flat Iron Steak it was very juicy and I enjoyed the fries. For dessert I had the Salted Caramel Tart, it was so delicious. I definitely will come back next time.

Bazin's continues to be a favorite of ours, and this was our first in-house restaurant experience since Covid requirements were imposed. Our meals were excellent, but our server seemed very stressed and out of breath, possibly because he had too many tables. He was friendly, but but in the rush, he brought me the wrong entree and left us both without any utensils.
We will definitely come back to the best restaurant in Vienna.

I have frequented Bazin’s over the last few years. They were one of my favorite “go to” places for a nice dinner, but the last few times I’ve been the food quality has dropped. Last night was the clincher and probably the last time I’ll go back. My friend and I shared an app, two main courses and a dessert. Every single dish sans the dessert (ice cream sundae), was tepid. It was barely warm. The appetizer we order (quesadilla) came out three minutes after we place our order. It was room temperature and felt like it had been premade and was just sitting under a mild heat lamp to keep “warm”. She and I then shared the beef sliders and halibut mains. Both the mains were tasty, but again barely warm. I remember this happening the last time I visited (before Covid)... flavor wise, food was tasty but not warm enough. Which is disappointing since it would have been great had it been the proper temp.

It was a wonderful dinner. Delicious appetizers, delightful wine, excellent food - it was hard to decide what to order from the lovely menu, and scrumptious desserts.

Love Bazins but this was my husbands’ 1st visit. The food was great as usual, thought the prices were much higher than other visits but considering Covid, I guess that’s why. Will be back again. Our waiter was nice but he was “ missing ” after he served the food so had to wait 30 min to order another cocktail. All in all we were satisfied.
