First the waitress rushed our ordering of food and then she brought 2 of the 4 wrong dishes to our table. The food was barely warm and she came back to check on us once. I will never go back to that location. Seeing that it's in the heart of Seattle, I expected way better service and food. Complete let down!

They had great food. The service was good. I had a hard time with tables being so close together. I felt I would bump the table next to me just getting out. It felt uncomfortable.

I've been to the Nordstrom Grill in Seattle many times, always have found it exceptional. This was the first time, however, when I went during the Noon hour, and was surprised at how loud the place could be. Conversation was a little difficult. I'll undoubtedly return, but probably a little later in the afternoon.

Lunch: Great steak, very disappointing “Louis”, best crab bisque ever, good wine, superb “Chocolate Indulgence” dessert.

The steak was outstanding with its butter topping. The fingerling potatoes, however, were over sauced and hard. The “Louis” was a good dollop of crab over dressed greens, topped with four wedges of hard tomato and four battered & fried shrimp—not a Louis. I should have just had the crab bisque, which was, as always, wonderful.

A bit noisier lunch crowd but brisk, friendly service. Love the room, prefer a booth to a table.

Good food choices. Food was very fresh with pleasing presentation. Good wines by the glass choice. Very noisy and busy but fun. Server was attentive. We had a reservation and the table was ready for us. My halibut was very fresh and my cousin's salad was also. We will be back!

All of us were happy with our meals. We liked that there was enough variety for one of us to get a steak plus, one to get a dinner salad, and one to get soup and a veggie.

We experienced having a delicious lunch at the Nordstrom Grill. We were seated promptly, had excellent service and great food. We look forward to lunch there every year when we come to Seattle for a Christmas weekend.

The Grill is one of our favorite places to dine for lunch. It is also our "go to" place to take a friend for a "pay-back" lunch. We especially like the ambiance, the club-like decor, and the numerous choices on the menu. Most of all, the food is never disappointing but even surprisingly subtly unique in flavor, and the service is prompt and personally pleasing.

Hi-hum. My reuben was flavorful but the bread soggy in the middle. And the fries were lukewarm and limp. Our server was very nice. M niece said the chicken tenders were good. I guess I expected better from some reviews I’d read.

Awesome service. My son had halibut at a local restaurant that cost much more, and said the Nordstrom’s Grill offering was much better. I had one of the best steaks ever. Will visit again.

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.

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."
