Food was good but nothing special. Service was lacking as our server forgot our friend’s coffee, then comped it but my friend still ended up paying as the server just automatically split the bill in half versus having me pay for my daughter and I. It’s an easy place to go to as it’s near everything and isn’t usually busy. If wanting a decent meal without a wait in downtown Seattle this is your place.

The Arctic Char was tremendous with sautéed asparagus & tomatoes. The cilantro lime shrimp salad was delicious too.

They sat me in a great table for my business meeting and the server was efficient and very quick. She could have been more engaging but, I was there on business so it was nice to get to the point.

I used to eat lunch at the Grill three times a week when my office was a couple blocks away. It was always a good value and I liked to eat at 11:30 to get ahead of the crowd. Now that I'm retired and am not so frequent a diner, I've noticed that the portions are smaller, and the menu has changed and not necessarily for the better. But it's still good and more than anything else, when you are in Sylvia or Cindy's section, the service is off the hook. Those two ladies "rock it."

We went on a theatre night and practically had the place to ourselves! Happy hour was great, although they should have a sparkling brut on the happy hour menu to counter point the Prosecco, but that only personal opinion! The food was delicious and our server was lovely!

Food was better than anticipated. Date night special was good value

Wait staff was thorough, but we felt rushed to finish as she seemed ready to get through with her shift soon after we showed up for our 6:45 reservation

Always my favorite when I am downtown. I always feel welcome and have a great meal with fantastic service. The only downside is I spend too much on my way out of the store!

I have always loved the food in The Griil, but was sorry to see some things have changed. I often have order the chicken paillard, and it was no longer on the menu. The waitress did say they still make it ‘just a little different’.
The dish consisted of two pieces of perfectly cooked grilled chicken (not flattened), with a strange pile of arugula salad (w/ a few cherry tomatoes and powdery parmesan coating). For $22 I would have rather have had my husband’s delicious french dip sandwich ($18). In general, the menu seemed shorter, and not as interesting.

We still had a very nice lunch, but the restaurant just seemed a little tired...

The noise level was not "energetic" as I was allowed to register in the previous section. It was like trying to talk in a bowling alley. Despite very fine service, decent food and prices, I will not be subject my ears to such a din. No, not "energetic."

Wonderful experience. Quality Nordstrom all the way. Meet your daughter or a friend for an exceptional lunch and quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of crazy downtown. Lower level downtown Nordstrom store. Definitely will be back.

Super happy with the way they split our salad and entree and plated it so nice. Took awhile to get someone to come to our table, even with water. I felt like they seated us in the bar because there were just two of us, even though we made reservations. It was one of the bartenders that served us.

I asked for my caesar salad to be lightly dressed, and it was overdressed. Also, some of the romaine leaves were brown, and the "croutons" were just tiny little crumbles. It was not a good salad.
