Renovated cafe looks wonderful. Food was great but very short staffed.

This meal was a far cry from the outstanding food and service previously available at NM Cafe pre-pandemic: over-salted soup, paltry portion of salmon in the salmon tacos, waiting ten minutes for salt and pepper and sweetener, etc. One could even hear shouting in the kitchen. With a truncated menu my expectation was that the remaining items would be prepared as in the past, but was disappointed. The prior wait staff were superb and professional -- the same is not the case now as the few staff persons are friendly, but disorganized and not as attentive as they should be. Definitely not up to Neiman Marcus standards.

I’ve been going to NM Cafe for years. Currently there is something off. The staff is gone that made this place great. The food was below average and it was extremely disappointing as this spot has been a favorite of mine, my children and friends. I hope they fix what needs to be done and train the staff to the standards it requires.

The greeting by all was gracious and welcoming. We arrived before our guest and were quickly seated. We ordered two Caesar salads with salmon, but requested that kale would be replaced by romaine...we thought kale was a bit out of the ordinary. The guest ordered a chicken salad sandwich which was huge and difficult to eat without a knife and fork. The server was professional and not obsequious.
The ambiance is perfect for an intimate lunch. I love the Neiman Marcus cafe and will eat there often

NM cafe needs a better seating host. At least needed a better one that day.
A cold useless robot!
Started the experience being offended.
Didn’t feel welcomed at all even though I used to frequent the cafe years ago. It used to always be delightful.
Waiter was very good
Atmosphere so so but mostly due to Covid.
Food: Soup good
Salad: disaster
Old staff who apparently since retired were superb. They owned their jobs!
I will go one more time and if things are not better it will be the last.

I am a big fan of the cafe, and have dined there many times over many years. This luncheon entree was beyond awful - and it was the special. Lobster salad with thawed, refrozen, thawed lobster. Not Neiman's standards and very disappointing,

Ambiance was nicer 3years ago. Rolls were stale tasting. Salad was bland. Should serve French fries, not just plain chips with burger.

The food was very good. My son had salmon tacos; the salmon was perfectly cooked, the vegetables were tasty and fresh. My salmon dinner was delicious too. The Cranberry Cooler and a glass of Rose accompanied the meals perfectly. The new decor is comfortable and attractive but austere; it must be, I suppose. The service was perfectly unobtrusive. It was a great experience!

My friend and I have a tradition of getting together for lunch here several times a year. We both choose it specifically because we know we can always count on the food being delicious AND we love the ambiance. The servers are always efficient and delightful. We like the fact that so many of them have been there for years and remember us when we come in. It's a perfect place for lunch and I would highly recommend it.

I have always enjoyed having lunch at the NM cafe but disappointed that I was seated by the kitchen door. Very loud from the kitchen and difficult to have a quite moment with a friend.

Large group near us noisy. Dining Area does not seem suitable for groups of eight or 10 celebrating birthdays with that in mind people around them can’t hear or try it when trying to have a relaxing lunch

We were seated and then a few minutes later we were asked if it would be OK if we were moved to another table because they had promised another party a corner table. We agreed to do so. The food was just average and subsequently it took close to 20 minutes to pay our bill because the waitress forgot to come back after she gave us the bills to sign.

The food is a bit on the pricey side. Would have liked to see more vegetarian offerings on the menu. That said, the food was delicious (even if pricey) and the chef was kind enough to add mushrooms to my street taco order which was truly yummy.

The new renovations are awsome ...simple and relaxing. The chairs were very comfortable, but we struggled moving them across the new carpet. Maybe gliders would help. I ordered the vegetarian wrap expecting fresh, raw vegetables inside and was disappointed to find the vegetables were cooked.
