I like that it is tucked away from shoppers. It's like a secret. I like that you go thru the specialty dept. to shop on the way in and purchase on the way out. It seems like a private club ambiance. I like the broth to start. The online reservation was easy and was acknowledged the moment we walked in. The hostess was very pleasant as was the server. Great job by all and my out of state was impressed. Thank you.

NM Café is a bit pricier than my usual lunch-with-the-girls places, but it's a fair price for the high quality of the food and service. The menu provided many good options and I appreciated the nutritional data given for each item. My group of 3 were highly satisfied with the entire experience.

Our young grandchildren love to go to the NM Café when we are at the mall because the staff is so accommodating of their special requests - fruit instead of salad, etc. and their simple tastes. The service is quick and they don't have a chance to get bored or antsy. We definitely will return to the Café during our mall excursions!

A really nice lunch option, especially for women. The cafe is small and feels very cozy. The food is excellent and the choices are varied and interesting. It's on the pricey side, but worth it for an occasional splurge. I'll definitely return.

We celebrated a friend's birthday here in a quiet , non-rushed environment. There is a new menu but several good selections made it hard to decide. Professional staff and food was delicious. They have kept the consomme and delectable popovers. Very enjoyable lunch.

I haven't been to the Neiman Marcus cafe in a few years. The consommé and pop over courses are always good, but the salads were sub par for the price. My daughter had quiche and it was over cooked. My mother had the NM version of pot pie which was disappointing as well. Definitely not worth the $200 I paid for 6 ppl to have lunch.

I took a chance by taking my 2 grandchildren to lunch - ages 2 & 5. (You never know what to expect from kids at this age.) The staff immediately gave them coloring books and crayons. There is a wonderful kids menu and they had no problem finding something they liked, even the "picky" one. The staff was very patient and attentive. We all enjoyed our lunch and I would definitely take them here again.

I met some friends for a get together and to catch up. We were there well over 2 hours but never felt rushed. The food was delicious and the starters - consommés and popovers - were wonderful. The service was excellent and the setting very comfortable. I never knew this
cafe existed but it is a little gem!

My friend and I have a tradition of meeting here for lunch at least twice a year. The service is always amazing and the food choices are good - especially since she is a vegetarian. This time I had the most delicious grilled cheese with tomato jam, which came with a cup of soup and a side salad. Very reasonable for the price, too!

I have enjoyed lunch at Nieman's Cafe many times. The food and service have been excellent, it is kid friendly (for well behaved children) and I look forward to having lunch there again. We ordered the Lobster Corn Chowder soup which was excellent as was the grilled cheese with tomato and avocado. My granddaughter had the grilled cheese which she really enjoyed. As always, the popovers with strawberry butter are an excellent way to start the meal. Servings are plentiful so we did not have any dessert., other than the chocolate chip cookie included with my granddaughters lunch.
