This is an excellent all-around restaurant,...

This is an excellent all-around restaurant, and it’s quite cozy, too. We’ve been several times, and I’m sure we’ll be going back soon.

Better than good, but for the money, not great.

Bazin’s is a nice place to go, and we go there often for lunch or dinner and certainly enjoy it. It’s somewhat upbeat and energetic over there, to the point of getting a little noisy when it’s crowded. Lots of well-to-do 30-somethings, so it can be a bit like dining with a bunch of cheerleaders. It’s basically another take on upscale casual dining — sort of a GAR place (Sweetwater, Artie’s, Mike’s, Coastal Flats, Ozzie’s, etc.) but wth a slightly dfferent spin. Actually, a number of the staff and management at Bazin’s are former GAR staffers, and you can see the effects of that, as they’ve got most of it down right. The food is is at least quite good most of the time. The salads are very nice and favorful, and Crispy Oysters are an absolutely divine appetizer. They are delicious! Things can get spotty at times though. The fish can get a little mushy or a steak can be just a little on the tough side. Not things you’d send it back to the kitchen for, just things that detract from the meal instead of adding to it. But the price tag is the kicker. Dinner for four last week — two cocktails plus two glasses of house wine plus a mid-range bottle with the meal, appetizers, entrees, and coffee plus two desserts — came to $300 without the tip. There are simply a number of places around where we could have had better for that or where the same would have cost us less. Doesn’t keep us from going back of course, but even when everything we got was great, it often feels like we ended up paying for something we didn’t get.

Blackened Swordfish

Actually, I had poached monkfish, which isn’t necessarily a favorite, but the plating sounded interesting and I hadn’t had it for a while. It turned out just great and was actually the best of the four entrees we ordered. Unless you were a lamb-lover, in which case the lamb shank would probably have won. It was actually quite good also, a bit dull but it probably took second place in my book, leaving the steak and the tuna to bring up the rear. Neither of those was bad either, of course. The steak was devoured amidst approving grunts by the steak-lover, and the picky eater got well more than halfway through the tuna. That’s saying something.
