“Have a really great meal while shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

I asked my UM student....where do you want to eat today. I was shocked to hear I'm craving the Bistro at Nordstrom. There is something for everyone here, and it doesn't hurt that it's in a beautiful mall, in a great store. I've been there three times now, and each time it was relish, consistent quality and service. I'd recommend going at slightly off lunch hour times, and you stand in line to place your order before being seated and served by wait staff, but the line moves quickly.

Bread pudding is great. Rosemary fries, too.

“Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

This is the place where I go for Lunch when visiting Coral Gables. Even if I am not shopping at Nordstrom that day, I would just drive there and have lunch.Do not miss the Salmon with salsa and roast potatoes or the french fries. You also get free parking which is a plus.

“Great food not so good atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

I had heard about this bistro being great and yes it did have very good food considering it was inside of a department store but be ready to wait in line for a while especially during lunch , the seating area is very small and they will not take your order until some tables clear , once you sit you will have table service which was good but the waiting ruined the experience even though the food was excellent. Would probably not go back unless there was no line.

“Delcious food, even if it wasn't at the mall.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

Cafe Bistro is a gem. To be honest, I haven't eaten at any other restaurant in the center, but I don't really feel the need. I love to shop at Nordstrom, and the restaurant on the top floor offers terrific fare at a great price. Don't miss the bread pudding!
