We had two birthdays with us so in addition to noting that on this reservation I called. Was assured it would be taken care of and they missed by half. One of the birthdays was celebrated...so close but so far!

As for table service we asked on multiple occasions for specific items, like pepper for the salads. 3 of 4 gave up and ate while we watched the server come into the section at least twice without remembering the ask. Need to teach servers to scan their entire section of what is probably 3 or 4 tables; could’ve saved us from waiting.

As always the food was wonderful!!

The food was excellent. The meal would have been more enjoyable if the table next to us didn’t have a dog seated on the chair and eating from the table. Service dogs are important but they shouldn’t be allowed to eat from the table.

We were practically the only people there, and yet it took over an hour for them to take our orders. They messed up an order, and the food was lame. Bread was served cold and hard, like toast left out, and my salmon salad was little more than chopped romaine with no dressing.

The food in general is very good. My only complaint was that my steak was overcooked. However, the other person dining with me had steak which was cooked just right.

Slow service and no automatic refills on drinks. Wasn't that busy so disappointed service wasn't better. Salad with chicken was so-so. Much better salads elsewhere.

Service was TERRIBLE. Had to request drink service multiple times, we were not served bread, dinner took forever, and dessert was not served until we complained. Food was just ok. Such a disappointment.

My wife and i had a fantastic anniversary dinner at Bazin's. Enjoyed a drink at the bar first, with a lovely bartender. For dinner, I had crispy oysters and halibut, while my wife had the branzino. For dessert we had the salted caramel. Each dish was excellent, with the halibut being a stand out. Service was friendly, helpful, efficient, without trying too hard. Bravissimo!

We have always had a good meal at Bazin's. We made reservations for Sunday night, July 21, our wedding anniversary. The service is usually very good but on this particular night, not so and the wait staff was not very busy bustling and juggling many tables. We were disappointed that the flounder stuffed with jumbo lump crab was all out as well as the sea bass. I chose an alternative special, the lamb steak which was as hard as shoe leather and full of fat and not enjoyable. Flavor could have been good but I would eliminate this from the menu and just go with lamb chops. Bazin;s was really disappointing this past Sunday evening (July 21, 2019) and I will question whether we would return again.

Outstanding food and drink for a great evening out! I found it a bit overly noisy, even sitting by the window. The waiter was cordial and the food came out quickly. Would definitely recommend for a nice evening out or a date!

Delicious food. Wonderful to have gluten free selections for those with celiac and even better the gf selections are delicious. Only negative is that the restaurant is loud. Great to dine at Bazin’s but not a quiet or relaxing atmosphere.

Our second time at Bazin’s. We were there for our anniversary dinner and they sent us complimentary Prosecco as soon as we sat down and left a nice card on the table. The food is delicious and the cocktails are expertly crafted. The lighting is brighter than most places, but I don’t mind. I had the tomato risotto and it was excellent, as is everything else I’ve ever tasted there. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite places.

We went to Bazin's to celebrate our anniversary. As usual everything was outstanding. We shared the amazing crab eggroll and they were kind enough to divide it into two plates. I had the seabass and it is always prepared perfectly. We shared key lime pie for dessert. Our server was very helpful and allowed us to leisurely enjoy our meal while still being attentive. We have always had a positive experience at Bazins which is why we decided to celebrate our anniversary there. I highly recommend it and we will be back many times before our next anniversary.

First time to Bazin’s; we went for Sunday brunch.
Outstanding food (krispy kreme bread pudding starter, then Short Ribs Hash and Norwegian Eggs Benedict). Everything, including the coffee & mimosa was perfect. Cranberry juice was mostly a glass full of ice, but Alex was an extremely capable, attentive and friendly server.
We’ll DEFINITELY be back soon. And we shook our heads wondering what took us so long to go there. (We live in Arlington, so it’s a drive to Vienna. We found parking in the building’s garage.)

This was a very pleasant dining experience for us. We have been to Bazin's on Church once before. It was also my birthday - more later. Our salads - chopped for husband and watermelon for me were very good. Husband's pasta dish and my scallops also very good. Great wine list. Service was very attentive. We even had desert - my birthday blueberry cheesecake came with a candle. There is NO complimentary special event desert at the restaurant now, so why ask... Overall, it was a very pleasurable evening.

We had high hopes for Bazin's. The food was variable, and the service mediocre. I order my gin "up" but got it neat. The wild mushroom soup I had as the first of a three course tasting menu was amazing. My wife's crispy oysters were excellent. Her crab-stuffed flounder was good, but not exceptional. The lamb steak, my main from the three-course, was barely edible. Covered in a brown gravy with a green drizzle, it looked as bad as it was. The malbec I ordered when my main arrived didn't come for 10+ minutes. It was wonderful, as was the wine list. Although we were there for and hour and a half, we didn't get to try the deserts we wanted (mine was included) because our waiter was never around. Most of the time he was standing at the service counter, often for several minutes at a time, rather than at his tables. Disappointing.

Seems like there was staff turnover and the service was very slow. Hopefully will not be an issue going forward as Bazin's is our favorite "go to" place for dining!

We had not been to Bazin’s in years, and were pleased to find that it continued to be high quality. Our appetizers of ravioli with lobster and grilled romaine we’re excellent, as were our mains of filet mignon and halibut. Desserts of creme brûlée and key lime pie were very good.

What a disappointment. Service was slow - waited 30 minutes to get bread. And service was poor - server forgot an appetizer, and then after our entrees were served I told our server twice that we did not want the appetizer but she still brought it, and it was pretty horrible. And the manager was nowhere to be seen, the restaurant had a total lack of customer care. Had to send a steak back TWICE and it was still not cooked properly. The salad and desserts were good, but If you want a great tasting, well prepared meal with good service, I recommend you go elsewhere.

We were looking for a place to eat before attending a show at Wolf Trap. I am Gluten Free so I was SO happy to see so many options - not just items that could be modified, (leaving off the best parts) but items that are truly created GF. My only disappointment was that there were no GF rolls offered.

Great service and nice atmosphere.
