Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous. Food, Service and Atmosphere. No need to drive to DC or Old town to have a dining experience. Also visited the wine store next door - Church Street Cellars, as recommended by another reviewer - great place to spend some time prior to your reservation and they have wine tasting machines that are very cool. The owner is great and very knowledgeable He co-hosts private wine dinners with Bazin's every so often - I look forward to attending the next one - the menu's look fantastic.

What makes Bazin's my favorite is the combination of great food - especially the Crispy Oysters, Potato and Onion Ravioli, Jumbo Lump Crabmeat salad, and the Bistro Steak - and the warm, personal atmosphere. Whether I am eating an appetizer at the bar or a full dinner with a client, I know that Patrick and Julie (the owners) are paying attention to every detail of my experience. Every time I visit, they stop by, greet me and my guest, and make sure that I feel personnally welcomed.

Finally Vienna has an upscale restaurant! After a long "soccer mom" day, my husband and I dropped by Bazin's but we had to sit up at the bar because we did not have a reservation. You can't get a last minute reservation on the weekend and there is a reason why; fabulous food. However, we don't mind the full service bar with state of the art flat screen TV. It is also fun to chat is up with the hip young staff working hard around us. Once again we enjoyed the autumn salad loaded up with green apples, toasted almonds and a generous supply of blue cheese. We also shared the Vienna favorite appetizer; the potato and onion ravioli with a warm Maine lobster sauce that is full of fresh lobster. For dinner, I went with my regular entree of stuffed flounder with crab meat. This is a wonderful combination because the flounder is light but the crab meat and sauce on top are rich, sort of a ying yang factor. My husband enjoyed and did NOT want to share his scallop dish which was also wonderful and a very generous portion. Another great thing about Bazin's is the wine list which has a good selection at low prices. Most restaurants do 100-150% mark up, but Bazin's wine prices are low. You can truly enjoy fine wine with your meal. If you have time, arrive a bit early and walk next door to the Church Street Cellar. The owner has wine tastings on the weekend and some week days. Many of the wines in the wine store are also on the wine list at Bazin's.

My wife and I tried it on a Sunday evening. The food is OK but can be found at many other places. The service was poor. It took a long time to get anything. The bus staff spent all there time talking to their friends Thus, no water, no bread. The place was very noisy and the tables are too close together. I had to listen to every word of other table conversations. Needs to decide if it is going to be a hip bistro or an upscale restaurant. It is stuck in the middle somewhere. Also needs a front end manager to take control and get the employees to working instead of talking to each other.
