This place is always outstanding!! The restaurant wasn’t even a third full and dinner took a long time to receive. At least an hour. You know what would have helped….. BREAD!!! Please start serving fabulous bread again. BTW, no restaurant is using the COVID excuse for not serving bread any longer. (that is what our waiter told us) Always delicious food & desserts!!

The crispy branzino and glazed miso sea bass were lovely. I ordered one and my husband ordered the other and we ended up trading. Good sized portions and a nice mature atmosphere. Attentive and friendly service. Can’t wait to go back.

From the moment that you walk into the door until the time you finally leave, Bazin’s is an experience you won’t forget! A long time favorite that keeps getting better, it was the perfect choice for a birthday and Father’s Day celebration. Patrick and Julie and their staff extraordinare will have you thinking about your next visit before you finished your first course!

Dinner as our 3 main meals and appetizers were delicious but dessert was a big let down. Did not like fried apple pie nor was strawberry short cake very good….Fried apple pie seemed a neat idea but should have had apples not dried diced candied apples…not good at all.

We hadn’t been out since before covid and this place was recommended by a friend for our anniversary. We had a 7:30 reservation. They were running behind when we got there so we waited 30 mins for our table. The bartender was great and we ordered some drinks. So far so good. We were finally seated and had had ample time to look at the menu already so were ready to order. It should’ve been a clue when our waitstaff never arrived and we had to flag one down. He told us he wasn’t our waiter but took our order anyway so we thought we were good. A bit later I noticed that people who had been seated after us were already halfway through their meals and no one had been by our table since our order was placed. I looked at my watch and it was 5mins to 9pm. An hour and a half after our reservation we still didn’t have any food. Since no one was around to flag down and the 2 front desk staff were just standing around since no one was coming in, I went up to them to ask where our food was. That seemed to get the ball rolling and our food arrived just before 9pm. My sea bass was good, but my husband’s steak with fries was inedible. The steak was over cooked and the fries were cooked with rancid oil. I thought he might have been overreacting until I tried one. They were on the soggy side and not only lacking flavor but actually gross because of the oil. They were also missing the garlic sauce. The restaurant told us they were short staffed and that “there was something with the oil”. I get that things are difficult post covid, but if you can’t provide a service then don’t sell it. No one wins. And whatever you do, if you know an ingredient is bad then don’t cook with it!! We were excited to try a new restaurant but will not be going back.

The drinks were great. Excellent wait staff. The Flat Iron Steak was a very poor cut of beef. Fries were excellent. Shrimp and Scallop pasta was superb.

Food and service were very good. We sat outside on a beautiful night so the noise level was a little high bouncing off the concrete. However, I will take the trade off of being able to eat outside.

Scallops and shrimp over linguini was excellent. Short ribs were not the best; they seemed like the meat was merely boiled.

I loved the ambiance at Bazins and my cocktail (Peartini). But the tuna tartar and brussel sprouts were a little bland. The service was ok- our waiter was very friendly but the staff was extremely busy and I'm guessing the restaurant short staffed?

I did not like the hanger steak - it was very tough and didn’t like the cheese on top. I didn’t like my drink either - it was too strong.

Our first time back since COVID hit. Ate outside in back where they've turned the parking area into a very pleasant dining area. The shrimp crispy roll appetizer was wonderful as was the grilled romaine with avocado. we both had the halibut which also was delicious. Bazin's has a very nice wine list with good variety and a good range of prices. We'll be back!
