Took my wife here for dinner after a day of errands and shopping. Beautiful space, clubby decor, and extremely friendly staff. Everything was fresh, made from scratch, and seasoned perfectly. We shared the small house salad - fresh greens and a dressing that was perfectly balanced. Delicious! For entrees my wife had fish and chips, and I ordered the chefs special wild salmon Oscar. The fish in the fish and chips was halibut, the batter light and crispy, and no oily or soggy fish after frying. My wife said it was fantastic! My Salmon Oscar was sockeye filet marinated and grilled over creamer Kale and topped with lemon butter sautéed crab meat. This was easily one of the best preparations of wild sockeye salmon I have ever tasted! Absolutely perfect and scrumptious! Nordstrom Grill is a hidden gem in Christiana Mall - hands down the best restaurant at the mall. This will be one of our regular stops for dinner - it’s that good. More

My wife and I went for the Sunday brunch and it was amazing. They had everything you could ever want and more. A carving station with steak, turkey, ham and rack of lamb. Seafood including steamed crab legs, crab cakes, ahi tuna, salmon and smoked trout. Also an omlet station. A wall of special donuts and deserts. The chef also makes eggs benedict, just let the server know when you want it. The price is not bad for what you get. More
