Department stores rarely inspire popular frenzy, but for Seattleites, Nordstrom is hardly an average department store. On opening day, crowds waiting to get in literally cheered and pumped their fists.

The grill is a good place for lunch

We had lunch at the grill here. Wonderful fresh split pea soup. We followed that with a fresh Cobb salad. The service was great, the food good. We got in quickly on a Sunday... read more

We had lunch at the grill here. Wonderful fresh split pea soup. We followed that with a fresh Cobb salad. The service was great, the food good. We got in quickly on a Sunday afternoon at 12:30. It's in the lower level. Great for kids too.

This is a great store that offers a wonderful shopping experience. We were served by three different sales persons and each one was helpful, considerate and knowledgeable. This great sales staff coupled with a store that is beautifully decorated and offers plenty of choice in the goods they carry made for a really good experience. I especially enjoyed the spacious...

If you're a fan of shopping at Nordstrom, you will love this store. It is huge and l loved seeing merchandise that our local store doesn't carry because of its smaller size. I expected it to be more of a historic store (kind of like Saks on Fifth Avenue in NYC) and was a bit disappointed that it was very... More

When she was having trouble finding a dress for an event I suggested their personal shopper service. It was great. She got a few things and I got to work on my laptop in a nice waiting area. Thank you Nordstrom!

I was looking for mother of groom dress. Found the perfect dress but they did not have it in my size. Young salesgirl called around, found one, and had it shipped to my house. Thank you!

The store is on top of the light rail stop, a part of Seattle history, and a beautiful experience. It made me want to buy stock in Nordstrom. There is a great "feeling" in this store, which is really important to bring people into stores. Our hotel was a few blocks from the store and we were really happy to... More

As a local, there is pride in showing the FIRST Nordstrom store to guest & family. BTY: it is Nordstrom - NOT Nordstroms ! There is no "S". Macy's has an "S". J.C. Penny's has an "S". Toy's R Us, has an "S". I love Nordstrom shopping experience. Not crazy about the renovation. It looks like any other upscale shopping... More

This is the flagship store--Nordstrom central. I hail from back in the Nordstrom Best era when this store was much more old school in display and layout. While the modern facility is pretty, I find myself looking for the old departments as I ride the escalator. I loved the smell of the old store and the original focus on shoes.... More

I don't normally review shops but this one is a step above the usual. The coffee shop is great for breakfast or a healthy snack with your coffee and opens a couple of hours before the rest of the store. The concierge service is excellent. They will look after your luggage whilst you shop. The range of shopping is great... More

Had a business meeting downstairs in the restaurant. Food and ambiance were excellent, although it was a little loud for a business meeting (because it was so busy). I had a salad with chicken. It was phenomenal! They pounded out a chicken breast and fried it, then served a nice veggie/green salad on top. Service was also great. We didn't... More
